STOCK MARKET IS UNCERTAIN Ignorance of Action of. Steel Workers Causes Irregularity. BY BROAD AN WALL. New York. Sept 16.?Uncertainty as ( to what the labor leaders would do at ; tSieir meeting- at Pittsburgh imparted j irregularity to the stock market to- . day following early strength. Trading j was again on a heavy scale, and about j 1.M6.W0 shares changed hands durinff ? the session. One favorable feature of J Cae day was the ease In call money, ; the rate declining to 4 per cent, which ( is the lowest in several weeks, and j furnished a surprise to the Street, j "Whkfa had expected that rates would remain firm. Oils, tobaccos and the equipment i shares were the center of activity. | The oil issues touched new hiffa levels j for this movement, under leadership ( of Mexican Petroleum, in the earlv . dealings, but reacted under realizing | sales in the late afternoon. Mexican ; Pete closed wir.t a net loss of more ! than four points. Tobacco shares were taken in hand i during the forenoon and sold at new tops, especially American Tobacco. , T>uring the afternoon dealing in the 1 equipment shares broadened cons id- : erably as prices advanced under lead- j erSlaip of American Locomotive. Strength prevailed during the first half hour of the session, but profit i taking sales appeared in various parts j of the list during the afternoon and , resulted in irregularity. T.ie equn?- | roent stocks led during the late deal- | ings. and closed near the best prices j of the session, out final quotations for j the entire list showed gains and losses ! ?bout evenly distributed in the moet j active issues.

Demand came largely from shorts, j ) both trade and speculative, but a broader in- | quiry from Wall Street and Western sources also | was noted, and further bujring b>" the trade was j in evidence. SU/p orders were reached as prices j moved upward. Additional -weaknw in foreign exchange had otxy a temporary effect, and vt*n | iocs were expressed that iu unfavorable posi\^ii I might change suddenly for the better. | l*eriod3 of realizing brought small reaction* i:i I the last hour, but there was at n > *:m.- -enk ness shown, and the market was finally firm at a net advance of 102 to 107 poinu Spot here was steady at an advance of 106 points at 30.60; tliere were no saleiv.

This district consists of twelve square blocks solidly "Japanned," with an outlying fringe where "peaceful penetration" is in progress. It is within a block of the main business street and five blocks of the State Capitol building. San Francisco. Ca!.. Sept 16.-Of ficial figures don't show the full ex tent of the recent Japanese Invasion into this country. But official figures show^ plenty to warrant the outcry now being raised by farmers and business men all over tho West: "Something must be done." They show that In the flret six months of 1919. the Japanese admitted to this country outnumber those ad mitted In the entire previous year?or any previous year. They show that since Japan enters Into the "Gentlemen's Agreement- to limit the number of her passports is sued to laborers bound this wav this mlm . 7Tber ?f to' been multiplied by three. They show that when the "gentle mens agreement" was signed, about -.000 Japanese a year were admitted RETAIL TRADE IS UNPRECEDENTED High Prices Not Depriving Any of Comforts, Says Holland. which*!,11 2""*r. para<,OI^al Situation month ^ l 'r'sti'' m thi" autumn month of bus.ness and industrial con Me'?n?.>, KUBhoUt lh<" l r""-d States. ?ho have had long experiences ~n^U-r.a',handh "aanc,a, thlr,? u y have ncv<'r Ken any. thing which compares with th.s pres For in:*an?e re ?h7rh h " Part"'' of ,h* countrv. which have, since September 1 reached New i?rk, of an alm<)(>t cedented retail trade.

The pdople not withstanding their aggregate subscrip tions of some JSO.OOO.OOO.OOn to the victory and liberty loans, nevertheless seem to be in possession of monev in Plenty. So It is said that the buying power of the people has outrun the rate of production. This certainly is a condition that was not forecast im mediately after the armistice was signed. Another peculiar feature observable in these mid-September days refer to the crop situation. There is no en couragement in the reports which come from the wheat belts hut on the ?wr,Khan,dJthe Chances s<">m <? ^ that the Indian corn harvest will be somewhat in excess of ;.?.o o?i ouu bushels From several points of view .L'f.rKard^d ea qu,te important that there should be a very large har vest of Indian corn as a record mak ing harvest of wheat. The kind ot crops which are utilized for feeding stock are presumably to be as large as any that have ever been harvested For that reason the supply of meat and of dairy products is to be larger than was the case last year.

They show that in 1911, the very ? year the "Gentlemen's Agreement" was reiterated and written down in i connection with the new treaty, i Japanese immigration increased 40 1 per cent over the fiirure of two I i years previous; and that it has now j | increased L'JO per cent over the high 1911 figure.

"I would go to sleep of nights and John would still be ?plugging* away. Education at Kirksville was a serious thing to John. He had gone there with a purpose, and never, no matter what the lark we boys had on. did John ever forget that purpose." The general's sister, when I talk ed with her in Lincoln, told me the same story. John worked and work ed. his eyes always on the goal hej had set out to attain. Aimed for Bigger Tklmg*. At the end of the first term, when John and his sister and Charlie re turned to Laclede. John and Charlie were offered clerkships in a store "I accepted the Job.** Mr Spur geon told m*.

An anecdote of John at that tim* is told by Dr. Jam^s L Holloway. of Dallas. Tex., a student at Kirks ville with John. "When I arrived at Kirksville I wa> a green country boy," says Dr. Holloway. "I carried my belongings in a small trunk. The baggage man handled trunks very roughly. When I remonstrated, he looked me over then laughed. He pitched the trunk into a wagon and pitched it so clumsy that it fell to the ground, broke open and spilled its contents on the street. told the man T would report him. and he laughed.
