COMPLETE STOCK TABLES AND FINANCIAL NEWS FOR THE THIRD TIME THE XVIII. IS VALID CALLED VETERANS 111 11 WAiosatiBetT f Features of the Trading, Hour by HouT 10 TO tl. TThe titock market this morntnrr waB a dull and extremely tintntercstlnz affair. Traders could not find any Incentives for trading In news hap pening! over the week end. and. as the public has temporarily with drawn from the market, business Wall St. Gossip f CLOSING STOCK QUOTATIONS There wau mich heavy liquidation In American 'Ugar Hollnlhg tumnuin stock this morning It was the most active Issue traded In iimflt hroke to was on a much smaller scalo than I ? . VS ?X,wlUiln a p?lnt nnA.a ''?lf on any day last week, and in only I10t moru tlmn -Voo Shares of thi a few Instances did price fiucttuv tlons extrnd to moro than a point. Chief feature, of Interest was the weakness of Amerlcin Sugar He fining. On an unusually largo vol ume of trading It fell close to 40. or within a point and a half of the low of the year. The preferred stock at one tlmo uhowed a loss f 2V4 points. 3Jut the remainder of the Industrial list was not Influenced by the weakness of the sugar shares. It was generally appreciated that weakness of the luttcr stocks was rtuo to Bpeelal causes, and that In fact the sugar Industry Is the only remaining real "weak spot" In the Industrial situation. Greatest strength was shown by tho rails. Most of the leading coaler3 and trunk lino shares were able to show nut gains of a point or more in early dr.illngs. There was no special news to account for the movement. As a matter of fact, It Is generally expected that Novem ber earnings statements, soon to oe lulled, will make a rather poor comparative showing and that in most instances net returns will not he up to the figures for Oetober. Steel shares were almost completely neglected. United Htatus Stcci moved within a range of a quarter f .a point, and whilo the now familiar reports of an early eon summation of a big merger of in dependents were everywhere heard, 'hoy wore without market Influence. Tlio statement Issued by a Standard O.l publication that unless the Mexi can Government changea its policy 1n dealing with producers of oil in tbut country Mexico will become un unimportant factor In tho In dustry served to Induce fresh specu lative selling of Mexican Petroleum and Van-American :n early deal ing.". At one time tho former showid a loss of amut three point.-" and the latter two points. The re mainder of thb oil group was steady. . 11 TO 12. The market continued dull and un interesting durlmj tho second hour. Sugar shares were unable to rally more than fractionally from their low marks, equipments were slight ly lower, steels continued extremely inactive, and when the rest of' the 'jiarkct refused to respond to the strength of the carrier group the ' tter declined to within narrow fractions of tho closing prices of lost week. The foreign exchange market was ac tive and strong. In initial dealings demand sterling rose to $4.21 for a net gain of more than 4 points, and French francs were 16 points higher. Hut tho strength of ex changes was without influence on the share Hat. Money renewed at i per cent. At times during the noon hour trad ing carries to a -complete standstill Although it is recognized that the underlying position of the marked, as measured by the size ofi the short Interest, is probably weaker than It has .been for a month or more, offerings were extremely light Except In the case of the sugar shares and oils the markc' generally was able, to show a steady tone. Rumors of a new price cut by leading motor car manufacturers, includ lnV the Ford Company, received but small attention. Motors were generally lower, It Is true, but at no time did recessions extend to more than a point. fTho bond market was active and strong with Victory 4 3-4s selling at 100.08. This duplicated the previous high mark for tho year registered last week. Foreign gov ernment and corporations were tronsr. 1 TO 2. i.unri.; tlio fourth hour prico changes bociimo very irregular. Domestic oil shares, with Cosden acting as leader, worked up to now highs for the day. Steel shares displayed morn life and with tho Increase In activity worked up to new highs for tho day while the sugar shares de veloped a fair rally. Tobacco and "hemlcal shares were firm. The money market became firmer with the rater on call loans being marked up to 6 per cent. But t.hero la no worry In speculative quarters regarding the condition of i ne money market. It Is expected that a firm tendency will be dis played during the next fortnight, hut tliftt. with a lower rate of dis ount In proapect before the end of January, rates on money loaned for (lie purpose of stock market specu 'utiun will surely work lower after tho turn or the new year. Trol. fcjurlng final dealing the market was .i .specialty affair, reflecting the whims of floor traders and profes hlnnnle. A number of rtorks flit .rdlnnrily ar quite inactive were htock are t radix! In during a tull live nour mission, up to noon to-day moro than 18.000 share's chunked hands. One reason for tho extreme weak ness shown by tho Issue Is the continued-demoralization In the sugar In dustry. It is now regarded as prac tically certain that the Cuban Sugar Commission will be dissolved ut the end of tho year in the sujrur trade It Is believed that, with tho end of the commission's control, there will bo a ntrther reduction In thr price of tho raw product, although It is now quoted at 2 cents a pound, Including cost and freight. Aside from ihis, now financing by tho company cannot he long deferred, and unlcsM expecta tions are greatly upset the now linanclng will Involve suspension of referred dividend payments. Probably bocau of the meeting between Lloyd George and . the French Premier in London to-day, at which the question of German repar ations will be taken up for final do eislon, all the foreign exchange mar kets were buoyant In early dealings. Demand sterling was quoted at $4.21 $4.21 1-2, a net gain of more than 4 cents. French francs rose 10 points, and German marks at 53 one hun dredths of a cent showed a gain of 4 1-2 points. Xot In many years havo thero been so many reports of Impending mergers of Industrial concerns, but thus far they havo proved poor mar ket ammunition for stock market pools. It was reported this morning that a merger between the American Agricultural Chemical Company, In ternational Agricultural Chemical and Virginia-Carolina Chemical Is being considered, but this was quickly denied at officials sources. The National City Company ha3 advanced a $30,000,000 loan to the Kingdom of Donmark. Demand for the hotter class of bonds Is as strong ns at any previous time this month. To-day Victory 4 3-4s sold at 100.08, thereby duplicating tho high prico for tho year, and for eign Government and corporate bonds were strong on an active volume of trading. New Investment issues offered the public continue to bo quickly snapped up. A case in point to-day was the offering of $6,000,000 Hood Rubber Company 15-year 7 per cent, notes at 97 1-2. The issue was quickly over subscribed. LIBERTY BONDS. Liberty" Sl-23 opened 94.90; 1st 4 l-4s. 97.10, off .10; 2d, 96.84, up .02; 3d. 97.88; 4th, 97.22, off .04; Victory 4 3-4s, 100.04, up .02.

NEVER SUCH A BEAUTY, BUT THERE'S NO PICTURE Press Agent Thwurted by Dig; Man n Job Her Flancel Tho publicity man for the Knlrhts of Columbus $2,000,000 drive to-day confessed a deep despair. Ho had a chance to get a picture in the paper, and ho could not provide the picture Nothing hurts a publicity man moro than that. "I novcr saw such a girl in my life." he said. "Wo offered a prize a banduau worth $1,000 for tho pret tiest girl at tho bazaar Saturday night at tho 69th Regiment Armory. The judges selected an Irish brunette oh, a. peach I And oho took tho bandeau, but refused to give her name and address and refused to lot us photograph her. It's awful. "Sho had protection with her a gigantic man, who said ho was her (tance. And oven he wouidn t tell us her name or give us her picture."
