Stock Exchange authorities are prepar ing a now ruling In regard to trading In International Issues. The purpose Is to prevent trading in stocks in which foreign holdings are large, but Important foreign bankers state that all American Issues, from COrn Products to Sears-Roebuck, nro held in large amounts on the other side of the Atlantic, and that an embargo against so-called international Issues would prevent trading In all but a few stocks. Brooklyn Rapid Transit- Is tho most Important exception, foreign hold ings of that stock being comparatively small. Exchange on Berlin continues so strong as to cause general comment. There was a further advance to 02&, for Relchsmark cables, with the supply so small and demand so urgent that sellers could practically fix their Own prices. Tho demand Is still attributed to sales of Gorman-held bonds, but bank ers with Berlin connections Insist that heavy Imports of German goods through Scandinavia and Holland have been so large In the last week as to give a good reason for the sudden demand for remit tances to Berlin.
