Eliminating the oils and equip
ments. which dwarfed ail other is
sues In strength and speculative im
portance. the stock market presented
lew features of interest Rails were
Irregular at best, becoming heavy in
spots when it developed that the
leading eastern and western rail
ways had joined forces to cut wages.
The recovery In the prloe of oils
and by-products was the most con
structive feature of the week. Do
mestic shares probably owed their
strength in large part to recurrent
rumors of salt water In the Mexican
fltld* and general dissatisfaction with
conditions across the Rio Grande.
In the Industrial situation the most
|significant event was the large de
crease In bookings reported by the
!United States Steel Corporation for
October. This was the mora disap
pointing because the previous month's
slight gain In tonnage, the first In
more than a year, had encouraged
hopes of a turn for the batter.
The disarmament conference was
the subject of discussion In high
financial quarters, chiefly because of
of the conviotion that It will bear, In
directly at least, on the large for
eign debta to this country. An
nouncement that the British govern
mnet has arranged to make monthly
Interest payments of her obligations
gave rise to Intimations that France
and some of the other allied nations
may soon make known their attitude
in this same connection.
It Is pointed out by International
bankers, however, that the ability of
the continental countries to meet
their payments to the United States
rests largely on the outcome of af
fairs in Germany. Further decline
of the mark to a level bespeaking
economic paralysis was viewed with
greater apprehension, especially in
London and Parts.
