ELECTION NEWS CHIEF FACTOR IN
INFLUINCING NEW YORK MARKET
f
Reports That Republicans Had Obtained Control of
Congress Uring Heavy Ruying Early and Prices Ad
vance Uncerlainty'Later Causes Reaction
New York, Nov , 0.
Politics was the chief factor In influencltii; market operations with
tho licKlnnlnif of business today. when, iho piess reports clalmltin that
Jtopubllcnns had obtained control of CoiiBross. induced a wave ot buying
from manj' sources that caused advanced raiiKini- from 1 to S points all
through the list. Tho fart that thc.i' published Mntrnienls were not posi
tively confirmed but were clouded later In uncertainty made those who
had been buyers turn apathetic, ami durliiK the remainder of the fore
noon movements were Irregular, with many stocks reacting to below
Monday's final price
Intcnfo Interest was shown In all Information that could bo obtained
to indicate the comparison of the new Congress, but the various reports
were conflicting and the market became a hesitating one, wavering be
tween weakness anil fclrcngth in' the late forenoon.
A great deal of Importance was attached to the money situation.
There wouM undoubtedly have been more general buying but for tho
fait that nit by brokers felt compelled to refuse buying orders because of
the regulations against Increasing loans, but n member of the governing
inmmittec said this morning that stocks bought today would not be paid
for until tomorrow and that he was sure money would lm obtained easily
enough at that time.
This maj be taken a indicating thnt the committee appointed by the
-tork exchange on Moiulav to confer with the banks, would urrangc In
in some way for tnoro liberal accommodation to Wall street borrowers.
Marine issues were directly Influenced by the expectation that a plan
for the sale of the llrltlsb ships would be announced after the meeting
toda.v. The preferred ndvanoed :"i to 125V4 and then reacted to 124.

In response to weak cables, the local
market opened fifteen to forty-two points
lower, with tho exception of August.
which was three points higher, but the
undertone was steady, with apparently
a, large short Interest still to be cov

.Japanese Interests, were the chief sell
ers. The buying seemed to be uulte
general and mostly form shorts.

NEW YORK COFFEE MARKET
New York, Nov. 6.
There was continued active progress
In liquidation of coffee contracts at full
maximum prices this morning, and It
was considered probable that the opera
tion will be completed before the time
limit expires on Saturday, November 9.
TI.e continued improvement In peare
prospects has evidently stimulated bull
ish sentiment in Urazll, and this morn
ing's early cable to the exchange re
ported an advance of 400 to 900 rels
from the special cabld received on Mon
day. Ulo spots were also strong, at an
advance of 350 rels.
While coffee merchants expect a some
what (Tisler tendency to develop in the
local spot situation, as a result of the
Veloaslng of thousands of bags of coffee
heretofore tied up through hedging ope
rations on the exchange, tho market was
nomlnoll unchanged

by splitting tho Forty-sixth Ward In
two with Pine street as tho dividing
line.
Voters of the ward decisively beat the
pnilect, with a total of 4728 vote: to
3787 votes. The ward, which has more
thin 22.000 assessed voters. Is tho big
gest voting ward In tlieiclly and usually
goes Independent.
All of the five Common Counellmen
and the one Select Councilman from tho
ward were elected as Independents.
Mackey Is strongest In the divisions
north of Pine street and the Indcpend
ntH pol lthelr heaviest strength In the
divisions south of Pine.
Division workers In Mackcy's organ
isation north of Pins' street worked for
the proposed split. The division work
ers bouth of Pino street did not vant i
to do isoiateo in an entirely Independ
ent ward, and turned In against tho
project.
'I heir help, combined with ih vnt
of the Independents, proved too much
for the Mackey strongholds In tho north

The Kedcral Farm Loan Act provides that Joint Stock Land. Banks miy issue Farm
Loan Bonds secured by deposit with a Federal Registrar, of Government Bond
and or first mortgages on farm land not exceeding 50 per cent, of the value of the
land for agricultural purposes add 20 per cent, of the value of the permanent im-.
Iirovements thereon, as determined by Government appraisers.
Tins collateral must receive the approval of the Federal Farm Loan Board, and the
bonds themselves are then prepared, engraved and approved by the Government.
These bonds are a lawful investment for all trust funds under jurisdiction of tht
Frdcral Government, and may be accepted as security for all Government deposits,
including Postal Savings Deposits.
The Act further provides that these bonds "shall be deemed and held to be instru-.

derived therefrom shall be exempt from federal, state, municipal and local taxation."
