The World
Finance
Market Fluctuated Aimlessly
Throughout the Day.
HARDENED TOWARD CLOSE
Some Disappointment Over Shaw's
Promised Belief.
LONDON NEWS DEPBESSING
Election Nervousness Again Noticeable?Considerable
Selling for
Foreign Account.
Spwltl Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK. October 23.-Dur1ng the
forenoon session upon the stock exchange
prices declined as steadily as they moved
In the contrary direction yesterday. After
midday the market hardened somewhat,
and the rallies which occurred In a number
of Instances Imparted a more Irregular ap
pearance to the day's dealings as a whole.
Definite explanations of the varying shifts
in prices were wanting.
Apparently there was some disappointment
with regard to the extent of the
money market relief measures announced
yesterday afternoon by the Secretary of
the Treasury, and seemingly there was also
some increase In the concern felt with regard
to the outturn of the election.
The American department of the London
market was again feverish and depressed,
while other quarters there continued steady.
Foreign houses again traded on a large
cale In the local market, and were sellers
on Daiance 01 upwara ax av.uw snares.
Await the Settlement.
It was upon the conclusion of this selling
that the local stock market showed its first
disposition to rally. It whs considered likely
that the liquidation for foreign account
would have been heavier except for the
fact that the general settlement upon the
London stock exchange begins tomorrow,
and this necessitated the remittance of the
proceeds of today's sales by cable transfers.
Contangoes for the settlement In the
Kaffir department today ranged from 7% to
per cient, and there was much interest
BriirpsBpH In the rnfes likelv to be Quoted
for American stocks at the making-up day
tomorrow. Houses with foreign connections
have been commonly advised that
there must take place further heavy transfers
of American stocks now carried
abroad.
The opinion was commonly expressed in
banking circles that the efficacy of the
most recent relief measure adopted by the
Secretary of the Treasury would depend
almost entirely upon the extent to which
the national hanks are prepared Immediately
to take out new circulation. There Is
ordinarily Involved In this process the
lapse of about three weeks for mechanical
purposes, but some of the larger banks
usually keep a reserve supply of notes on
hand for such emergency purposes as are
Involved in the present situation.
Little alteration was observed In moneymarket
conditions today, the rates for loans
on call averaging somewhat lower than
yesterday's mean figures. Price movements
In general showed the same degree
of uniformity which has been exhibited
ince last Friday, upon the announcement
that the Bank of England had advanced
Its rate of discount to 6 per cent.
There were, of course, some exceptions to
the general drift of prices, a rather striking
advance taking place In National Biscuit
common, while the remainder of the market
was declining steadily.
Little Change In Money.
The maximum losses during tho morning
ranged from one to two points In all of the
active Issues, and with greater declines
howing In some of the higher priced
tocks.

LOCAL FINANCIAL HEWS.
*
The feature of the trading at today's
meeting of the stock' exchange ?u gas
stock. One of the broker* had a block for
lale, the exact aiae of which was not developed.
He seemed to be disposed to let
it go at 67, and fractionally higher. He
sold several lots within the range of 57T4
to 57, including one of one hundred shares.
Fifty-seven seemed to be the low limit,
and the cheaper offering* that were made
from another source did not change that
decision. Al a point lower mere waa uw
veloped strong support for the stock, a*
there were bids at 56 tram two brokers aggregating
seven hundred shares. However,
the supply at the lower figures was not
forthcoming, and In fast there was ho very
broad demand for the stock after the buy*
lng had taken place, which was on a rather
extensive soale for the market hi Its present
condition.
I nsplte of that fact, however, there
seems to 1>e an idea among the brokers
that gas stock at the present prices Is
cheap. As the regular dividend yields 4
per cent on fifty such a view mast be based
upon the prospect of an extra dividend.
Payments of that sort are made every now
and then by this company, and there is apt

ment In the stock In anticipation. In thW
way the general public sometimes gains
knowledge of the fact beforehand.
The better prices paid In Boston today for
Mergenthaler did not bring the market here
up to that level. In Boston, Vt was reported,
that the stock was selling for 208.
while here sales were made at 205V4. and
fractionally higher. All the stock that was
to be had up to 205% was taken.
There was considerable trading In Michel!
mining at a fractional falling off from the
level of yesterday.
The dally clearings of the local banks run
up to about $900,000, which is an unusual
amount. Min?olnliv at tViia tlmA of the
month. As compared with former years
this shows a large increase and gives an
Idea of the volume of the dally business of
the city that Is rather impressive.
The million-dollar mark is oftAn reached,
arid such an aggregate is another evidence
of the expansion that is going on in all
branches of aotivity.
A study of the course of events convinces
the Wall Street Journal that the financial
power of London Is declining, while that
of New York Is rapidly advancing.
"The Bank of England's rate of discount,"
It states, "has been the balance
wheel of the money market for many a
decade. It Is still a great power. But it
no longer possesses the significance which
it had only a few years ago. In 1890, when
+ V. ?? Vinnl* Mta mna ? n V? ftlin H riflr "
mo UO.UA lttlD nao ^>Ui3IICU U|/ IU v pet ??...?!
It spelled disaster of world-wide Import.
"Today the bank rate Is pushed up to 6
per oent, and It Is explained as a fear on
the part of the directors of the bank or
the power of New York to draw more gold
from Its reserve stores. We are no
longer doing business In millions, but In
hundreds of millions, and the scope of our
operations is on such a colossal scale that
it requires the united power of European
finance to deal with the situation under
these new conditions. This does not mean
that New York has become the financial
center of the world. It has not yet. But
It Is forging ahead faster than any other
of the international markets."

Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK. October 23?Ab was lntlmated
in this column yesterday evening
prominent speculators understand verj
definitely that before the day was ovei
Secretary 8haw would announce some plan
for further relief to the money market. Th?
reported heavy buying of stocks during th?
idov Kir m ?uuMlau>?* V?A??ii
? tnuiuiuviiv OIUV/& OAWlCMIgt uvuu?
generally understood to hare prominent
Washington connections was taken as confirmatory
of the rumor. It was learned
today, however, that banking Interests id
this city were aware of the fact that Secretary
Shaw would make an announcement
late yesterday afternoon, the onlj
question being the form In which the relleJ
should be given. It was Intimated, too
that Mr. Shaw was willing to bring forward
at this time a more potent r el lei
measure than the one he made public, but
that he was given to understand that 11
would be unwise to do anything at thdi
time that would specially encourage speculation.
It was believed by well-informec
Interest* that II the active ctemana iw
money existed after election the Secretars
would announce a considerably more comprehensive
relief measure than that giver
out yesterday. In the meantime it wai
thought that If speculation in stocks wai
kept within proper bounds there would b<
no serious trouble as to the money market.
*
* *
It is learned that banking interests would
have been better satisfied with the demonstration
of considerably less strength 1e
stocks than was recorded. In other words,
these interests are decidedly opposed tc
special activity in the market prior to No
Vember 6, and until the general money
market Is In better shape. They point out
If large sums of money are required to
finance a speculative movement it will tx
practically impossible to adjust the money
market for some little time to come.

*
A. banker of this city who is actively Interested
in the political campaign, particularly
up the state, and who Is watching
the situation very closely, said this morning
that the Indications are now stronger than
at any time In the campaign so far that Mr.
Hug-hps will be elected by a safe majority.
In discussing the situation somewhat in detali
he said that a canvass, of several counties
Indicates that the rural vote, both democratic
as well as republican, will be very
largely in favor of the republican candidate.
This canvass also indicates that the
mill and factory element, which heretofore
In a good many instances has been largely
democratic, will at least break about even.
In some cases It is learned that the vote,
which hitherto has been at least 75 or 80
per cent democratic, will be practically the
same in favor of the other side. In the
case of some manufacturing institutions, he
said, there Is a rather large doubtful vote,
and indicated that apparently it will be lm
possible to get a definite idea as to this
vote before the election actually take*
place.
*
* *
The marked strength of the Colorado and
Southern issues yesterday, particularly the
common and second preferred, was undoubtedly
due to buying by Interests which
are aware that a favorable announcement
will be made before long affecting all of
these securities, particularly the second preferred.
*
* *
The Intimation comes In ueflnlte form
from well-Informed sources that If the
events of the next two weeks are In favor
of the company, the Brooklyn Rapid Transit
Company will not only consider but
actually declare a dividend on the stock
this fall.
* ?
A man who has always operated heavily
In the United States Steel stocks, particularly
the common, and who was originally
connected with some of the subsidiary companies
of the steel corporation. Is understood
to have told his friends that he Is
pretty confident that the directors will declare
another dividend on the common
stock at their meeting this month.

LONDON. October 23.?Trading on the

but Immediately after the tenor of Secretary
Shaw's plan to relieve the American
money market became known prices improved.
The bankers express favorable
opinions of Mr. Shaw's arrangement for
the acceptance of $18,000,000 in securities
other than government bonds In order to
stimulate bank note circulation, regarding
this as likely to be a more elastic plan of
relieving stringency than Is the releasing

1 CONSENT NOT SECURED.
One Party to Proposed Marriage Not
, Consulted.
Inspector Boar dm an of the local detec
tire rorce was asked today to land his as,
sistance in a peculiar case involving Frits
t Lis, a young baker, and Miss Anna Sellner.
? The latter's father and brother announced
that Lis had procured a license to marry
Miss Anna without first securing the consent
of the young lady. They deolared they
had been to see Lis and he had surrendered
the license to them.
Ca.pt. Board man assured the father and
brother that the mere issuing of the license
did not mean that the ceremony had to follow
as a matter of course, as Miss Sellner
need not marry Mr. lis unless she cared
to do so. He said, however, that he would
instruct the police in the vicinity of the
Sellner home on. Mount Pleasant street to
1 keep their eyes open for possible trouble.
It is understood that Lis, after procuring
l the License to marry Anna Seflner yesterday.
arranged with Rev. Henry Schroeder,
pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, to per'
form the ceremony. The minister received
a call from the father and brother of the
girl today and was very much surprised
to hear their story. He, too, assured them
> that the marriage would not take place
i. without the young lady's consent, license
' or no license.
OBJECT TO ASPHALT BLOCK.
Citizen Protest Against Its Substitution
for Sheet Asphalt.
onnAnn/?Amor?f that frhft CVimmlSSlon
. era will use asphalt block to pave and repair
streets throughout the District, because
of thfclr Inability to receive bids within the
amount specified by Congress for sheet
asphalt, has called for a number of protests
from citizens. The majority of the
latter are persons who do considerable
driving and they contend that the asphalt
block is not much T>etter than the ordinary
Belgian block, which, as a matter of fact,
was never invented for driving or to afford
any comforts.
, Dr. Charles B. Gilbert of 1444 Rhode Island
avenue northwest, in a letter of protest
to the Commissioners, stated that as a
driver he would enter an earnest protest
against the laying of asphalt block on the
city streets. He said that even the sheet
asphalt has its faults and is not perfect,
but the asphalt block is very unpleasant,
especially after it has become a little worn.
He concluded his communication by say

"Mr. Hoar is a very suck man. He has
been very sick ever since he took to his
