Prices Rally
After Early
Selling Move
CoTcriuiS! for Ovov Holiday Ts
Factor in Recovery; Pros?
pect for To-day Is Another
Dull Session on Exchange
As an Interpreter of economic, even?s
in prospect, the New York Stock Ex?
change "was Inarticulate ycsterdny.
T"_ero "was further speculative selling
?aarly In the session by professional
tra-jers bent on profiting by quick
turns mado on the decline, but later
those Trho had been selling short since
Wednesday bej-an to diminish their
activities at the approach of tho Christ?
mas holidays. Toward the close the
?ledlne was checked, and despite con?
tinued irreguhuity the undertone was
firm as some shorts took profits by
?-?overlng and relieved themselves of a
market position until next Tuesday.
On the basis of tho gray dullness
which prevailed 1r. the various markets
yesterday, the prospects for "rading
to-day are none too bright. Barring
unforeseen news developments of a
financial bearing, one can expect cur?
tailed operations t?-day and a small
attendance even among active members
???the exchange. There was a petition
to close the exchange and make a
three-day holiday, but the governors
decided to keep open to-day and next
Saturday. One factor governing this
determination was the unusually small
number of petitioners for the extra
holiday. As far as next Saturday is
concerned, there is so much account?
ing work to be done at the close of
the year that even if the big board
closed for the day brokerage offices
would have to be open to perform their
bookkeeping operations.
As a result of the upturn yesterday
;-fternoon most of the losses sustained
earlier in the day were effaced, yet
there was still slightly more recessions
than gains. The average price of
twenty rails declined from 63.35 to
'??>.'_Q, and that of thirty industrials
from 74 to 73.80.
In the other markets there were
similar evidences of speculative inertia.
The foreign exchanges again drifted
slightly lower, reacting from their
?rains earlier in the month. Cotton
?rices advanced 19 to 38 points, and
wheat prices were He to l*%c higher.

Money and Credit
Opening and renewing at f>*j per
cent, call money yesterday worked to
lower levels, contrary to what might
have been expected preceding the holi
day. Demand slackened during the
?lay and at the close there was a plenti?
ful supply available on the Stock Ex
? hange at 5 per cent and over the
counter at 41-. per cent. Transactions
in time money were at a standstill,
rates being virtually nominal.

In Wall Street
Money Demand Slack
Call money wns cheaper in Wall
Street yesterday than on any previous
day of the week. Before the clooo of
the session the rate on the New York
?Stock Exchange had declined to 5 per
cent and in tho outside market difficulty
wan experienced in placing funds ot
4% per cent. The decline in tho rate
was attributed not so much to tho at?
traction of supplies to this center by
the recent adherence to around a 6 per
cent level as to the absence of demand,
unusual preceding a three-day interval.
This last condition, in turn, was ex?
plained by the filling of requirements
early in the day in anticipation of later
stiffening.
Peruvian Financing
Reorganization of Peruvian finances
in preparation for the offering in this
market of the first installment of the
projected $50,000,000 loan is proceed?
ing smoothly, hankers in charge of the
operation report. The situation is re?
plete with difficulties; but these are
gradually being overcome, and the
probability is now foreseen that flota?
tion of $10,000,000 to $15,000,000 Peru?
vian bonds will find a place on the
schedule early in the new year.
A Tiredi Lot
Executives, office workers and sales?
men of investment houses that have
played the moro active part in the
preparation and distribution of the
week's new issues, aggregating in ex?
cess of $125,000,000, were in a state of
semi-exhaustion yesterday. The holi?
day on Monday will be welcomed fol?
lowing a steady drive of working day
and night and it is probable that inany
of the bond men will anticipate it by
taking to-day off also.
Cables received yesterday reported
the passage by one house o,f tly: Dutch
Parliament of the measure authorizing
the sale in the United States of a
$100,000,000 Netherlands East Indian
government loan. Bankers expect that
the bill will be approved by the other
house next week and that the prospec?
tive borrowers vill then be ready to
talk terms. The business has already
been fairly well lined up, the outlook
being for an initial offering of $25,
000,000 after January 1, but the details
remain to be determined.
United Fruit Head to Stay
Reports that Andrew W. Preston is
I contemplating retiring as president of
the United Fruit Company are without
foundation, recording to William New
| some, vice-president. ''Any statement,"
he added, "questioning the company's
j position, financial or otherwise, is
i ridiculous and not borne out by the
j facts. Mr. Preston has behind him, and
I always has had, the wholehearted and
loyal support of every executive and
! department head of the organization.
The business policies laid down under
Mr. Preston's aggressive leadership
and which have resulted in United
Fruit's growth and present prosperity
will be continued by him and carried
through loyally and faithfully by the
organization under him."
The St. Paul Issues
Some houses are now taking the'posi
tion that the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul issues arc cheap at current
quotations. They point out that much
of the recent bearish propaganda about
the company really had no foundation
and that no receivership is likely. The
road has been earning* its fixed charges
since August. President Byram was
| quoted in Chicago dispatches yester?
day as saying: "There is no occasion
! for uneasiness regarding our obliga
I tions. The company has plenty of cash
j on hand to meet them when due. Re
; ports to the contrary emanate from
I.irresponsible sources and arc wholly
! untrue."
Chicago & Northwestern
The selling in Chicago & Northwest?
ern yesterday had the ?Street guessing, j
in view of the fact that it was only i
a short time afro that the regular semi- ]
annual dividend of 3 per cent was de?
clared on the common stock. The stock ;
responded then with an advance to ?
67%, contrasted with yesterday's low |
of 60%, which was only a small frac- i
tion above the low of the year. While
Northwestern reported a deficit, of $13,- '
000.000 after dividend.-, during the first I
; half of the year, net earnings since [
July through October have covered j
dividend requirements. November will |
undoubtedly be a poor month.
Oil Agreement Reported Extended
The agreement between the Amcri- |
can oil companies with producing in?
terests in Mexico and the Obregon ad- |
ministration has been extended until !
January 25, according to a statement !
made yesterday by an authority thor
oughly conversant with the facts. The !
situation has been in doubt since the
publication here of a denial of the ex?
tension attributed to President Obre?
gon. The oil men, who have been loath
to talk about the agreement at any
time, have naturally been unwilling to
take issue with a statement credited to
him.
New England Looking Up
A marked change for the better, in
conditions in New England is reported
by ?*i banking official .hist, returnee! from
a visit to the principal cities of that
section. Contrasting, the current situ?
ation with that existing a few months \
ago, lie said that virtually all indus
tries were more active and that a dis- '
tinct improvement in sentiment had
been recorded, "pinion as to the eom
ing year he characterized as conserva?
tively optimistic.
Virginia Certificates Off List
The Stock Exchange has stricken
from its bond list the so-called 1871
Brown Brothers & Co. receipts for Vir?
ginia deferred certificates, and 'so
brought officially to a close a memora?
ble chapter in legal and financial his?
tory growing out of the contest be- I
tween Virginia and West Virginia as
(?? liability for debts incurred before'
the Civil War. The Brown Brothers '
committee began receiving deposits of
Virginia certificates in 1898, and event?
ually it held $14,300,842 of the various i
issues. All but $285,906 have been ox
changed for new West Virginia 3% per
cent twenty-year bonds, now selling at
about SS%.
Proceed With Coal Merger
__ Directors of Burns Brothers aad the
Farrell Coal Company at separate
meetings yesterday accepted the re- '
port3 from recent stockholders' meet- '
ings, at which the merger of the two
properties was approved. Directors
authorized officers to proceed with ar- \
ranging the physical end of the merger. :
The directorate of the new company
will be announced in the near future, ?
as well as the time and method of ex- j
changing Burns Brothers' stock for
new Burns Brothers'* A stock and the ,
exchange of'Farrell common for new i
Burns B shares.
Only Stock Exchange Open
The New York Stock Exchange and !
the Chicago Board of Trade will open
for business as usual to-day. The Cot- <
ton -exchanges in New York, New Or- I
leans and Liverpool are closed to-day
and Monday, as are also the New York
Coffee and Sugar Exchange, the Pro?
duce Exchange and the Street sugar
market.
Speyer Holds Offices
Permission has been granted by the !
Interstate Commerce Commission for
James Speyer to hold the offices of
director and member of the finance
committee of the Baltimore & Ohio
Railroad Company and the Chicago,
Rock Island & Pacific Railway Com?
pany.
Curb Prices Lack
A Definite Trend
In Quiet Trading
Tran sac lion? Are of a Holi?
day Character and Move
ment? Are Irregular;
Industrials Neglected
Trading was of a holiday character
on the curb market yesterday, and
prices moved irregularly in the ab?
sence of a definite trend. Oils were
fairly active, but uncertain, while in?
dustrials were virtually neglected.
Cities Service moved over a wide
range- below the 200 level, and closed
with a net loas of 2 point*-*, interna?
tional Petroleum dropped again, but
Maracaibo, imperial of Canada, Stan?
dard of Indiana and Anglo-Ameriran
made recoveries.
Burns Brothers "B" worked up a
fraction, while Glen Alden lost a
point. Swift International rose ?
point.
