React After
Recent Gains!
Decline on Theory That
Setback Was Due Hits
Most All Securities; Call
Money Rate Is Lower
Reactionary tendencies predominated
at the Stock Exchange yesterday, where
tho course of speculative security prices
was generally downward. The efforts
of the professional trading element
were- exerted mainly in favor of lower
prices on the theory that despite the
more cheerful trade reports the market
was due for a natural setback in view
of the extent of the recent recovery.
Unsettled conditions obtained in the
commodity markets, as well as in
stocks, and both cotton and wheat lost
ground in the course of the day's trad?
ing. The December option in cotton
moved close to the 20-cent level, but
reacted at the close. Wheat fluctuated
erratically- and finally left off with
substantial not losses.
There were few exceptions to tne
downward trend in prices in the stock
market. The average? price of thirty
industrial stocks receded from 68.77 to
67.93, and twenty rails lost about half a
point in the average. News develop?
ments were without direct bearing upon
the market, which lent strength to tne
theory that the setba?k was based
mainly upon technical considerations.
Some significance was attached to the I
fact that as the market yielded the vol?
ume of business fell off. Dealings at
the exchange were only slightly in ex?
cess of the half million share mark.
More favorable news came from the
steel industry yesterday in the form of
an announcement that all of the indeT
pendent steel manufacturers have ad?
vanced the price of steel sheets $5 a
ton. Earlier in the week the United
States Steel Corporation marked up
the price of steel wire.
Call money rates dropped to the
lowest level since the end of August,
with liberal offerings on a 4*? per cent
basis. In the afternoon the rate hard?
ened to 5 per cent. There has been a"'
temporary accumulation of funds at
this center in connection with the
heavy September 15 operations of the
Treasury, which probably explains the.
easier money position. Collateral time !
loans for forty-five days were made
yesterday on a 5V? per cent basis. The
Federal Reserve system in its weekly
statement of condition disclosed an ad?
vance from 66.2 to 67.5 per cent in its
ratio of total reserves to deposit and
Federal Reserve note liabilities com?
bined. Member . bank borrowings in
the system at large were reduced ap?
proximately $80,000,000 during the last
week, measuring the further liquida?
tion in bank loans throughout the
country. In the New York district
alone the reduction in member bank
borrowings was in the neighborhood
of $50,000,000. The local bank's ratio
rose from 72.9 to 75.7 per cent.
In the foreign exchanges the prin?
cipal outstanding development was the
fresh fall in German marks, which !
were quoted at the low of 90-100 of a
cent, a new low record. Sterling and
francs were higher.
Money and Credit
Call money renewed yesterday at 5
per cent dropped later to 4^ per cent,
but a firmer tone was in evidence at
the close, when the rate advanced again
to 5 per cent. The government with?
drew $49,000,000 of deposits from the
member banks in this district for the
purpose of meeting Treasury certifi?
cates of indebtedness maturing yes?
terday.

The Dollar in Foreign Exchange
Foreign exchange rates on European
centers recovered after early weakness
yesterday, and cable rates on London j
at the close showed net advance of
"i Vi cents at S3.71. Francs recovered
15 points, advancing above 7 cents.
Gains were registered in Italian
and Dutch rates, but German marks
dropped to a new low record of 90-100
of a cent before recovering to Wednes
I day's closing level.

Heavy Shifting of Fand?
Heavy shifting of banking funds oc- I
curred yesterday in connection with
the extraordinary September 15 opera?
tions of the government. They in?
cluded among other things the ma?
turity of more than $500,000,000 of
Treasury tax certificates, the disburse?
ment of some $30,000,000 in interest on
government war bonds and certificates,
the collection of the third quarterly
installment on account of Federal in?
come taxes and the closing of sub?
scriptions on the latest issue of $600,
000,000 of Treasury notes and certifi?
cates. It was announced at the Fed?
eral Reserve Bank of New York on be?
half of the Treasury that the new is?
sue had been heavily oversubscribed
and the books closed.
Studying the Reaction
Market observers who still favor
the constructive side of the market
1 were not discouraged by yesterday's
general reaction in stocks. They fig
! ured that a downward swing was due
before the advance v/as resumed, and
that the next upturn would be bene?
fited by the heavy volume of short sell?
ing which has been going on by traders
who are still unconvinced that an ad?
vance ?3 justified by business and
economic conditions. Taking Baldwin
as an example, brokers who claim to
know1 what the insiders are doing
asserted that little long stock bought
at much lower prices is coming on the
market. They state with a consider?
able degree of confidence that much of
the selling of the last few days has
been for the account of the shorts.
Baldwin was one of the chief centers
of bear attack yesterday, and by the
close had declined to 88%, a net loss
of 1%.
Kresge Sa-Ies Increase
The sales of the S. S. Kresge Com?
pany for each month in 1921 have
shown an increase over figures for
corresponding months of last year, in
spite of the decline in prices of most
commodities. Sales for the eight
months ended August 31 amounted to
$32,584,205, contrasted with $30,213,932
for the corresponding period of 1920.
Charles B. Van Dusen, president, states
? that the company has upward of $1,
000,000 cash, no bank loans, and only
$500,000 of commercial paper outstand?
ing. Loans outstanding a year ago
were $4,683,000, of which $3,350,000
were bank loans and $1,333,000 com?
mercial paper. On December 31 last
inventories were all written at replace?
ment values, with no old merchandise
on hartd.
Rate Redactions on Southern Pacific
Rate reductions on both eastbound
and westbound transcontinental ship?
ments amounting to as high as 30 per
cent have been announced by the
Southern Pacific. The commodities

Burns Brothers Up on Merger Talk
Active buying appeared in Burns
Brothers stock yesterday on reports
that negotiations are finally nearing
completion for a merger of this con?
cern with the Farrcll Coal Company.
Several meetings have been held within
the past few days on this matter arid
banking ' representatives of the Burns
organization admit that consolidation !
of the two coal companies is likely soon I
to become a fact. Burns Brothers
advanced to 95Vi, a new high for the
year, but reacted to 93% at the close,
which was a net gain of 3 Va points over
Wednesday's last sale. The controlling
interests in Burns Brothers are said to
believe that a consolidation with
Farrell will result not only in an in- '
creased business, but should benefit the i
public through a lowering of the price
of coal.
Germany Baying Less Copper
The decline in the value of the mark
to new low records during the last
week has adversely affected the export
copper market. Germany has bought a
small tonnage from dealers in London,
but practically nothing from American
producers during the last week. Jap?
anese demand has also quieted down.
"'Most all of the producers," says "The
Engineering and Mining Journal," "are
optimistic, however, and almost every
one is quoting from 12.25 to 12.75 cents
delivered. By diligent shopping around
it has been found possible to secure
copper at 12.5 cents delivered for Sep?
tember, and small lots have been sold
j at that price. One buyer is reported
to have been in the market for 1,000
tons in the last day or two, and to have*
] practically cleared up the market of all
; copper held at less than 12.25 cents."
Exchange Seats Higher
The rise of the last three weeks in
i the stock market has been accompanied
I by an advance in the value of member?
ships on the exchange. Yesterday the
; sale of a seat was reported at $86,000,
! compared with $80,000 the last previous
| sale. The demand for memberships is
| keener now than it has been for several
! months, owing to the increased activity
! on the market on the up side.
Independents Advance Sheet Prices
Following the. lead of the Brier Hill
i Steel Company a number of the leading
| independent steel companies have put
! into effect an advance of about $5 a
I ton on sheets. In some trade circles it
i was said yesterday that the American
I Sheet and Tinplate Company, subsid
I iary of the Steel Corporation, would
| take similar action next Monday, but
? this was not confirmed. Black sheets
! will be marked up by the independents
? tro $3 a hundred pounds from $2.75.
galvanized to $4 from $3.75, blue an
I nealed to $2.50 from recent lows of
I $2.25 and $2.20, and tin mill black plate
to $3 from $2.75.
Confer on Mexican Oil Taxes
Since the return to this country of
the group of oil men that arranged a
satisfactory agreement with the Mexi
\ can government regarding taxes the
| Association of Petroleum Producers in
j Mexico has held at least one meeting.
i A report was submitted to the asso
| ciation regarding the new agreement.
I and it is believed that a final settle
! ment agreeable to both parties will be
! arrived at.
I Otis Steel Defers Preferred Dividend

Steel Company voted yesterday to defer
the October dividend on the preferred

this issue yesterday. After the close
Wednesday the bid price was 40, while

! actions in the common were light, the
?closing sale being at 9%, an eighth un
i der the last sale of the preceding day.

Company for April, May and June were
in the neighborhood of $1,000,000.
After allowing for all dividends de?
clared there was a balance left for sur?
plus of approximately $450,000. The
company is in a favorable position re?
garding its contracts, as it is now re?
ceiving a substantial premium for its
crude oil sold to Standard Oil, Sinclair,
Texas and other refining companies.

i are now said to average between 20 and
35 cents a barrel, while in some sec
I tions the premium has been as high as
