MARKET WAS ACTIVE !
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
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.

CHICA&O GRAIN MARKET
Chicago, July 2. 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
Higher quotations on hogs made the

Champions of the Norris bllL however.
continued their lght in its behalf, but
with amendments made today by the
agricultural committee designed to meet
objections raised. Tbe amendments
would eliminate irtntaoos said ts fine

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.

to extend the authority of the war fVi

"I can realily believe that so simple

attention of congress the very prominent
