LIVELY, STR[EEIS OPTIMISTIC QUIET PREPARATIONS TO OPEN EXCHANGE-OIL ISSUES A'RE IN DEMAND New York, Nov. 12.-Removal of all rcstrictions, including the publication of prices, was signalized by lively trading in the curb market today. The fet:lures were the various subsidiaries of the Standard Oil company, some of which changed hands at prices con saierably above the prices quoted at the close of July 30, when the out side market suspended operations be cause of the war. Other stocks of an industrial or mining character were active, but the rc, business, which attained fairly large proportions was in the oil is sues, for which an out of town inquiry \\as reported. Many Houses on Curb Many stock exchange houses are r-;,resented on the curb and much of the day's busIness seemed to be ha.ed on an investment demand.

Normal Exchange Rates An important development toward the resumption of regular operations in the leading financial markets of the world was recorded today when sterling exchange fell to normal rates for the first time since the beginning of the twar. Cables on London were quoted at 485% and sight drafts at There were heavy offerings of bills but buyers were scarce, a fact which tended to confirm the belief prevalent in many quarters that local banking intcrests with foreign obligations had purchased more exchange than they had found was necessary. Another feature hearing directly $ upen this development was the call by the banking syndicate, which re- a ce:ltly sold $100,000,000 New York city I (t per cent notes for payment of an other installment to meet maturities falling due in London find Paris. With a this subscription fully three-fourths of the entire $100,000,000 will have been h raid, causing further heavy gold ex- t Torts to Ottawa. Exchange on Ger- R many fell to a new low figure, the decline being attended by reports of the establishment of additional mer cnandise .credits by Hamburg and frankfort interests. $ Exchange to Reopen r There were further indications that preparations were being made quietly to reopen the stock exchange, pre sunmably on a restricted basis, with dealings only for cash. Authorities of the exchange today not only removed TIhe ban prohibiting the lpublication of curb quotations, but annolncllentl ewas made that some houses \\:th e'x uhange memberships were reinsl:illn P-rivale wires to out of town tints. On the other hand, :avlices from London were of a loss reassuring character, so far as they had to dot with the resumption of market doal ings, there. The government's irefusal to extend the moratorium would, it was feared, necessitate more lryquida lion, especially in American issues. P,'.r the first time in sonme \weeks the I;nnk of England failed to show a gold ir .rease in its returns; instead the I ank lost about a million dollars, in cidlentally showing a slight falling off in liiability reserves. The ruling of the federal reserve loard defining commercial paper is exl ected to make some changes in rates soon after the new system gets tinder way. Additional retirement of emergency currency was reported by local banks, bringing the total of that movement to date to over $46,000,000. BY THOUSANDS OF FISH OF VERY TENDER AGE STREAMS ENRICHED Twenty-five cans of eastern brook ,trout fry were received by the local anglers' club yesterday from the ,state fish hatchery at Anaconda. Mem bers of the organization met the train with automobiles and within a cou ple of hours the little fishes were safely planted in their new homes, be ing about equally distributed between the natural fish nurseries of the Big Blackfoot and Bittegr; oot rivers. This will probably.Abe the last con signment of fry to Comhe from the state hatchery this fall.

Closing quo tations were steady at 1, to %c above last night's figures. Corn made a gain of 14 to %c net and oats /@1s(ic to n(iic. In pro visions the outcome varied from un changed figures to a rise of 17%c. Wheat Sales Decline Decided falling off in the amount of wheat purchased in the country, both northwest and southwest, helped to make quotations firm at the start and was also to some extent responsi ble for the bullish reaction during the last part of the day. Oin the other hand, receipts at primary terminals continued to exceed last year's ar rivals and acted somewhat as an off set in favor of the bears. Predictions of unsettled weather to night and tomorrow, put strength into corn, as did the fact that the export call for old corn was larger than could be supplied. Advancing prices for hogs at sev eral western points tended to make provisions average higher. Day5s Range December wheat-Opened, $1.151 ; high, $1.16: low, $1.141%; close, 1.15%.
