On the narrower market for listed stocks; there were similar ad vance.-* in a number of issues. The absence of an> decline is now explained in various wajs. First, and foremost, no doubt, is the fuel that American investment capital has dur ing four past months been accumu lating in quarters where it is habitu ally re-in vested In securities. There has been only .small opportunity of outlet for suci funds since July SO, and what the monthly accumulation is. may be beat Judged by the broad investment business transacted dally in ordinary times, and by the multi tude of new security issue* absorbed by tlie public In a normal market.

HIGHLAND PARK SEWER PROBLEM STILL UNSOLVED Committee Hears Plea For Mor rell-st.

The mayor opened the discussion by staling that, while it was the first dut, of tlie aldermen to look after the welfare of Detroit, Highland Pari; ought to be helped out, particularly as fur as the Ford plant is concerned. “The village is willing to pay $85,- 000 to the city for the connection priv ilege. and the construction of the sewer necessary to connect with the Morrell-st. outlet will furnish employ ment lor a number of men,” said his honor. “Tlie Morrell-st revver can 'aka care of the Highland Park flow.
