Brokers in Sydney, Australia,
Will Resume Next Mon
day London Discussing
Resumption and New York
Avaits Its Decision.
First news since tho beginning of the
E&ropean war of a. resumption of stock
tradliiK "' n"" of lho lmPoltnnt centres
here tho Dxelinngcs were closed camo
(oday from Sydney, Australia. It nit
nouncc.1 th.it tho Stock Exchange there
f lie olllilully opened next Monday.
This nlinmincomeni imturniiy increases
tho feeling of confidence overywliere ap
parent thit things nro on tho mend and
that the llmmclal world Is nearer a gen
eral resumption of business today than
it any time since tho end of July, when
tho Exchanges closed.
In London today foreign Exchange
linkers met for their first session slnco
the nr began. Whllo there wns no
business of any material Importance
transact"!, tin- session Indicated that
Irery nll Is being given tho Government
In lis efforts 10 expedite foreign exchange.
Another favorable sign Is the announce
ment of repeated conferences being held
In the Metiopolls between representatives
of the Government banks and tho London
Block Kxrliange Committee, concerning
the reopening of tho exchange.
Xew York will take no action on the
reopening proposition uniu auor i.onnon
has taken tho Initiative, and Philadel
phia will. oC course, do nothing nlonij
this lino until after New York has ofU
clally noted.
Washington brokers see such a gen
eral Improvement In the, situation that
they have ulrcady had soveral meetings
to discuss tho advisability 'of reopening.
It was finally decided, however, to take
nc action until tho New York situation
has been cleared.
Brokers In Now York say It Is ex
tremely probable that the reopening,
when It comes, will entirely confound
al! prophets. More than likely the ob
itacles which fire In the way of a rc
lumptlon of business will appear as for
midable as ever until tho efforts being
made to overcome them shall havo been
auccessful, and the rolling away of the
clouds will be brought about almost as
suddenly nnd unexpectedly as they arose.
Public offering was made today of the
new jioo.W-O.uw b per cent, nolo loan
tej?otlated hist week. Just how much of
It will be nlloted to Individual Investors,
li not known, since there Is no Indication
of the amount taken by tho syndlcato of
K7 New York banks and trust companies.
Tho bonds and notes aro being offered at
par nnd aciued Interest. They bear Intcr
eit at 6 pi r ront. a year, payable March
and September and aro issued In coupon
and registered forms In denominations of
J300, U0. J0 and 10.000. They wilt ma
ture as follows: $J7,O00,0O0 fi per cent, cor
porate stock notes duo September 1, 1913;
tH.CW,"00 6 per cent, revenue bonds duo
September 1, 1S10; $25,000,000 C per cent,
revenue bonds due September 1, 1917.
When the last payment wns mado yes
terday afternoon by New York lluanclal
Institutions, the figures showed that about
U.C0O.O0O had been paid by tho banks and
trust companies in sterling exchange and
18,CO,WO in gold.
Some Inquiries were received hero today
by lnestment bankers from Investors
anxious to take part of the note and bond
offering. It Is not likely, however, that
there will be much of tho offering ab
sorbed In this section. Tho, notes nnd
bonds, exempt from taxation In New
York are subject to the four, mills tax
In Pennsylvania, In the case of Indi
vidual Investors. This brines tho vleld
down to about 5.0 per cent. Tho offerings
are, however, exempt from Federal In
come tax. It has been years since such
high grade obligation, backed by tho
eredlt of New York city, wns offered on
such an attractive basis, and one of the
chle"f reasons why Investors hero mav
not get Into the market as extensively
as they would like, Is that distribution
'111 probablv begin in Now York, where
already it is understood, there has been
an oversubscription.

Traders Play for Reaction,
Believing Upturn Was Too
Sharp European Soil in
Shape for Planting.
CHICAGO, Sept. 17, On tho theory that
yesterday's upturn In wheat was too
sharp, 'traders played for n reaction to
day and tho market started one-quarter
lower nt l.H',4 for December and 1.19 to
1.18',fc for May. There was rather free
selling by l ' brokers. Tho commission
call at tho recession was fair.
The receipts of wheat at Minneapolis
and Duluth today were 1,683 carB, against
930 cars a year ago; at Wlnnlpog 1260
cars against 1,049 cars; at Chicago 341
cars against 95 enrs. It Is estimated that
tho urea of winter wheat In the surplus
States will cxcceU that of lost year by
ten per cent.
Ileccnt rains have placed tho soil In fine
condition for preparations for the new
crop throughout Europe. The sowing
tlmo of 'the belligerent countries Is as
Gormany, Hungary and Austria in Sep
tember and October, Franco In November
and January, South Russia In Sopitcmber
and November, and Great Britain In Oc
tober and December. Tho demand from
millers abroad continues large. The
weather In Argentina Is fine. Tho market
at Liverpool was firm on a better general
Trade In corn was light. Decombor
opened off c, at 72V4c, to ?ic, and
May unchanged at 75Uc. to 747c. There
was some realizing. Tho country Is not
selling. Tho "price current" has received
reports Indicating a total corn crop for
the United States this year of approxi
mately 2,800.000,000 bushels, against 2
EDS.OOO.OOO bushels forecast In tho Sep
tember report of the Government. The
receipts of corn hero today were 109 cars.
Trices In Argentina were firmer. It Is
expected that surplus of that country
will bo disposed of quickly,
Oats was easier on realizing. The de
mand was not so urgent. Most of the
bulls are waiting a. further reaction be
fore Increasing their lines. There were
no sales by tho country to arrive. Ex
port business recently has been heavy.
The demand has come chiefly from the
continent, as tho BritlBh markets ap
parently nre well supplied for tha nrps.

After a strenuous fight which lasted
many months and which was watched
with unusual Interest In all parts of tho
country, the thtce-cent fare controversy
In Toledo, Ohio, hns nt Inst been settled,
Judge Kllllts, In tho United States Dis
trict Coiir of that city, hns decided that
tho city ordinance enforcing this rnto Is
confiscatory nnd ho has ordered a return
to tho old rates, flvo cents for each pas
senger excopt during tho morning nnd
ovenlng rush hours, when tho ratu shall
remain at three cents.
Decision In tho enso waB a victory for
public utility Interests. Whllo tho fight
was on between tho Toledo Hallway &
LlKht Coninony and tho city authorities,
thero dovcloped a situation in 'Toledo
which haB never lpd a parallel In this
country. Tho company, after March 17,
when tho ordinance became effective,
declined to accept tho three cents offered
by passengers who boarded Its cars, nnd
thoso who did not produce the live cents
which tlio company declared to bo Its
regular rate, wero permitted to rldo free.
Thero was no acceptance of threo conts
for a ride oxcont during tho rush hours.
Kor five montns the compnny operated
its cars under this regulation and its
officers flgurod that the losses Incident to
this arrangement averaged $1,000 a day.
Yot they would not retire from their
original position In tho matter and they
determined to .fight It out to the end.
They declared the principal of tho lower
fare scheme to be all wrong and on tho
ground that tho securities of tho company
were being seriously Impaired by the low
rates, they fought every movo for en
forcement of the ordinance.
Early in tho fight Henry L. Dohcrty,
head of the company, offered to permit
th? city authorities to tnko over the car
system and operate It for a year to provu
thut the low rates of faro were unprofit
able. Tho city declined tho offer, but It
submitted to the voters a proposition to
have tho municipality buy tho property
nnd oporato it under a municipal owner
ship scheme. The voters, at a special
election, ngrecd to this plan, but thero
vmt no provision for tho creation of a
bond tssuo with which to purchase, the
Judge Kllllts laid upoi the city authori
ties the burden of proof to show that the
company's revenue, under tho three-cent
fare ordinance, would pay its operating
expenses and leave a surplus of from
$300,000 to $100,000 a year. Such proof was
not produced, In his opinion.
Judge Kllllts said that the city should
havo had, when It passed the three-cent
fare ordinance, knowledge that Its tormn
were reasonable. Neither the city nor a
court has the right, he said, to fix an
arbitrary rate of fare without tho knowl
edge that such rate will pay operating
expenses and leave n reasonable return
on tho Investment. By this, he said, ho
had no reference to bonds.
"Is It possible that the city Intends to
occupy tho position of dog In tho manger
forever?" said Judge Kllllts. "If the
ordinance Is unreasonable the company
cntinot be held to Its terms by the mere
fact that it continues to operate. Wo
must have transportation. Then for tho
city to say that If tho company continues
to furnish that transportation It accepts
terms which may be unreasonable Is un
conscionable." i
