New York, July 26. fTrading in itocks today was a trifle broader and more active, but the increased dealings were largely at the expense of values, niany leaders showing extreme declines of 1 to 2 points. President arding's message to oon cress urging payment of obligations to the transportation systems farm credits and facilitation of exports failed to stim ulate bullish initiative in the slightest degree. Kails were listless and little altered, but steels, equipments, oils, motors and the many specialties more or less de pendent upon those issues were under intermittent pressure. Leathers were ad ' vereely affected by the poor quarterly tatment of the central leather com pany and advices from the mildle west and New England indicated ' further Oackening of industrial production. Sales amounted 380,000 shares. Publication of the U. S. Steel Corpora tion's statement for the second quarter, issued after the close of the session, hhowed total earnings of $2192,016, the smallest return of any quarter since March of 1916. The only development in the money market, where call and time funds held at recent quotations was a slight eas ing of rates for bank acceptances and additional buying of commercial paper. Another reaction in foreign exchange, with escpecial heaviness In Scandinavian remittances was again ascribed to sales In London and Paris of sterling bills against purchases of dollar exchange. Business in the bond market fell off ulir'itly, but the re-ent Btrong tone among rails an dnew corporate offerings was fully maintained. Liberty issuer were irregular, but most internationals ijorei the weakness of eachahge, showing variable advances. Total sales (par value) aggregated $10,650,000.

Export sales, said to aggregate one million bushels, had a strengthening effect on the wheat mar ket today. Prices closed steady at the same as yesterday's finish to 1 1-4 cent higher with September at 123 3-4 and December 12 1-2 to 128 S-4. Corn lost 1-8 to 3-4 a 7-8c and oats 1.8 a 1-4 to 7.8. In provisions She outcome varied from five cents decline to 17c advance. Exporters were after wheat at interior foints and at the sealboard as well as here. The southwest in particular noted a brisk cash deman and it was said Belgium, Holland and Germany were in the market as buyers. Shortly after the opening, however, the traae was confronted by reports from of- nciais ot tne Canadian agricultural de partment Iiat the Canadian crop was ex pected to be a "bumper" one. This report led to considerable selling and temporar ily depressed prices but the market tight ened up again after mid-day and opinion oecame prevalent that export business was being underestimated and that des pite recent big reeipts no gTeat surplus accumulation would remain to Be dls posed of. Higher quotations on hogs made the provision market show a tendency to advance. irrtTAT: July ...

The committee also reduced the bond Issue aifthorizauion from one billion dollars to five hundred million dollars. Senator Norris, republican. Nebraska, criticised the manner in which the Kel logg substitute had been brought forward He charged Ooat it was prepared "se cretly" and that Senator Kellogg had "advance information" denied to com mittee members and other senators until it was read In the senate today. Republican leaders generally predicted that the Kellogg measure would be sub stituted for the Norris bill despite dis position of committee members and others to stand by the Norria plan. The committee amendments and the Kelloarg and o trier substitutes are to be taken up in the senate tomorrow with disposal of the legislation this week predicted. The special message to congress to day, asked it to extend the authority of the war finance c.rporation to purchase securities, probs-hly to (5OU.0O,0 now in the hands of the railroad administra tion so thit the proceed may be used for settlements with the railroads. There wis no thought he said, cf asking con ies3 ior additional money. Railway claims, based cn the "inef ficiency of labor" during the war tame period were to be settled without sur render of any rights in the courts. No added expense," said the Dresi- dent explaining his request, "no added in vestment is required on the nart of th government, there is no added liability, no aunea tax burden. "It is merely the grant of authority necessary to enable a m at useful and efficient government agency to use its available funds W purchase securities for which congress already has author ized the issue and turn them into chan nels of finance rady to float thm." TTie contract covering operation pro vided that the railways should be re turned to their owners in as good condi tions as when taken ovt-r by the gov ernment and the transportation act re cognized that betterments belong to cap ital accounts provided ' that such sums as the railway companies over the gov ernment for betterments and new equip ment added during Pae period of govern ment operation, might be refunded. There has been at no time, any ques tion of Justice of funding such Indebted nes sto the government. Indeed It ha been in progress to a measureable de gree ever since the return of the rail roads to the owners. It has been limited however, to suei cases as those hi which final settlements with railway adminis tration haoe been affected. The pro cess Is admittedly too slow to meet the difficult sitoation which the owners of the railroads haye been facing and I believe it essential ti- tr country's good for tune to hasten both funding and settle ment. . , 'Quite apart from the lanre sum ow ing to the government, which we are morally and legally bound ti fund, gov ernment admittedly owes the railway companies htrre sans on varintis ac counts such as comoensatlon, deprecia tion and maintenance. "The way now would seem to be clear to be very early adjustment and relief except for the fact that fe railroad ad ministration though popesslnrr assets, does not command the funds necessary to meet what will be its admitted obliga tions. "There is no thought to ask congress for additional funds. Perhaps $8.00. 000.000 will be necessary. The railway administration has. or will . ave m the progress of funding, ample securities to meet all requirements if congress only will grant the authority to negotiate these securities and provide the agency for their negotiation.

"I can realily believe that so simple a remedy will have your prompt fcauac- t twn. The question of our obligation cannot bo raised, the wisdom ot affording early relief is not to be doubled and the avoidance of added appropriation or lia bility will appeal to congress and tbe public alike. "Pending proposals for relief and their dlscussicn save already brought to the attention of congress the very prominent possibilities of using the facifflies of the war finance corporation for the roHef of agriculture and live stock production. This corporation has proven itself w helpful in the relief thus far undertak en that 1 cannot help but believe PiaU Its broadened powers as have been proposed to meet agricultural needs will onaelo it wholly to meet the nauon-wide emerg ency. This is on Impelling moral obli gation to American farming In all its larger aspects and it will be most grati fying to have your early sanction. "In the case of the railroads there is s moral contractual obligation and your favorable action Is no less urgent and wil. no less urgent and will no less appeal te public approval.

With his message the president sent also to congress a large amount of data from Director General Davis of tJe rail road administration, showing tho pro gress of Itquidatkn so far and treat ing oa present financial conditlona.
