f IN BREAK OF RAH.S
I
Plunge of Four Points Has
Disturbing Effect on Car
riers’ Shares.
!
BY STUART I*. WEST.'
•iwvial Diopateh to Thr- Star.
NEW.YORK. January 4. For the j
first hour or more today prices on the j
Stock Exchange continued to sag. It
was a dull, uninteresting market, re
lieved only by n. few strong spots
..rnong special issues. Eater on the
■ rie became firmer as it was seen that
the downward swing was not bringing
about any important liquidation.
The Atchison dividend was the main
point of concern. In view of the opti
mistic predictions of what the direc
tors would do. the whole market was
jarred when the stock plunged down
ward right at the start over four
points. Tnis fairly took the breath
away from recent speculative buyers,
who had no possible chance to get out
except at a considerable loss. Other
rails were disturbed and there were
losses of half point or more in New
York Central. Erie first preferred, and
Baltimore & Ohio. Most other railway
leaders went down fractionally.
Sugar stocks were again inclined to
do better following the lead of South
Porto Rico, which sold above the
highest of 1926. Great Western
Sugar was also conspicuously strong,
and Cuban American Sugar, Ameri
can Sugar, American Beet Sugar and
Cuba ('ane preferred, all were higher.
The market for both raw sugar and
sugar stocks was taking its cue from
The apparent willingness of foreign
consuming countries to fall in with
ideas of higher prices. Refined sugar
quotations- were marked up.
Sharp fluctuations appeared among
the industrial specialties. Allied
Chemical, Collins and Aikman and
, Gimbel Brothers were lower, while
C. S. Industrial Alcohol, National
Dairy Products, Woolworth and J. I.
Case were higher. International Har
vester had a fair come-back after
early weakness. There was no signifi
cance to any of these movements.
They were merely finishing up the
operations of a month ago which had
not succeeded because of the inability
to interest the outside public.
After several days’ decline, Ameri
can Smelting tinally ran into support
around its low of 139. Tobacco shares
were higher, particularly Tobacco
Products and United Cigar Stores.
Nash Motors, which was the feature
among the motor stocks, sold above
its best for 1926.
WHEAT HAS TUMBLE
IN TODAY’S DEALINGS
New Low-Price Records on Crop
Reached—Weakness in Foreign
Markets Is Factor.
By the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, January 4. Wheat ;
values tumbled sharply at the start to
day and registered new low price :
records on the crop. May led the re
treat with a loss of about 2 cents.
The break was chiefly attributed to ,
weakness in foreign markets. Rest
ing orders of around 1.36 for May and
some buying against bids checked the
decline. Starting % to 2 cents lower
the market showed but little power
to rally. Corn, oats and provisions
were affected by wheat, corn opening
3 h to % cents down and laifir under
going a slight rally.
There was plenty of information as
to foreign conditions and practically
all of it was bearish. Buenos Aires
showed a distinct weakness and led
the downward trend of the world [
* markets. Liverpool slumped and Chi- j
cago followed suit. The seaboard
reported little or no export business
overnight, and these factors were re
inforced when the visible supply of
Canadian wheat showed an increase
of 1,592,000 bushels.
• Australia reported that port load
ings were incrasir.g, the labor situa
tion improved and vessel room plenti
ful. Buenos Aires said that Argen
tine shippers were offering wheat
freely and that the quality was ex- j
ceptionally good. An early note of;
alarm from Rumania was displaced by j
a later report that the government'
thought the Winter acreage there
would be about normal. India said
its crop conditions were fair and North
Africa reported the outlook as very
favorable. The only note that en
couraged the longs was a report of
insufficient snow coverage in Hungary |
and the Balkan states, but this was
riot sufficient to stay the downward
trend of the local market.

Caution Signals Always Needed. j
Hundreds yes, thousands—of fore- !
Cists for 1927 have l»een -sent out of
New York predicting a rosy year •
ahead. .Many of these forecasts are j
based on excellent reasoning.- But, j
j amid so much optimism, conservatism |
j on the part of Washington investors j
is extremely important. There is no j
| reason why money should he sent to
j New York and lost because of worth
j less lips and guesses,
j Values are vital in investments, j
"Buy character,” the late Col. Ifenry j
IHigginson of Boston used to say, j
j meaning that investors should know i
j what kind of men are back of the
| corporations in which they propose to
j invest their money.
Local bankers and brokers can save |
largo sums of money for Washing- j
i tonians if given a chance. They j
[know all about sound home securities, j
jas well as New York stocks and j
; bonds, or at 1 east, can get full infor- ;
j mation very quickly and are all glad !
jto help their clients. Their advice is j
I better than most of that broadcast
i from New York, because it contains i
j the element of personal contact and j
i special interest in the client’s financial
I welfare.
Local Bond Offering Tomorrow. i
I Tiie offering of $1,000,000 Barber & j
! Ross 6% per rent sinking fund gold ;
bonds will he made tomorrow by j
Crane, Parris & Co. and two out- j
side firms. The common stock will i
; also be offered at the same time. j
Transfer by'Samuel Ross of eon-;
j trol of the business to five men long j
I connected with the company caused ;
j wide interest in financial, building j
! and other circles. As Mr. Ross he- j
j come? chairman of the board, Harry \
j Blake becomes president. The other !
i officers include J. H. John, jr., first j
! vice president; Joseph B. Thomas,
! second vice president; T. E. Rhodes,!
j treasurer, and H. L. Light, secretary, j
The firm, which has been in bust- |
: ness 50 years, was started on Sev- j
: enth street near Pennsylvania ave- i
! nue by Barber & Henderson of !
I Philadelphia. Mr. Ross came here j
1 in June, 1876, to he resident manager, i
Mr. Barber died in November, 1892. j

ington Stock Exchange today, the ’
j first sale being in Capital Traction [

Peoples Drug Gain.
Sales of Peoples Drug Stores, Inc.,
for week preceding Christmas totaled
$272,789, compared with $196,415 i» !
j the same week of 1925, an increase of !
! $76,344, or 38.9 per cent.
| Complete Figures in Few Days.
I Complete official figures, covering
! the condition of every hank ts! Wash- j
ington, in response to the controller’s;
call as of December 31, will be avail- j
able in a few days. As already stated j
in the Star, more banks in the District ;
show losses than gains in deposits, hut :
the slump is due to abnormal factors '
; causing an extra heavy drain on bank j
■ accounts at the end of the year. Local j
- banks, however, had a phenomenal
> year in 1926, and the prediction has j
i already been made that they will at- j
j tain a new record in 1927. Much of j
I the money withdrawn recently will j
j find its way back into the banks in i
j the near future.

High-grade Corporate Issues
Attracting Attention in

NEW YORK, January 4 Ignoring
entirely the weakness in storks, tin \
‘bond market turned strong today no'
: only for the United States Uoverri
-1 nient obligations which were in such
brisk demand on tbo day before aiui
, for the foreign issues, but for high
, grade corporate descriptions and to n
1 | less degree for those of middle grade
1 Even the speculative bonds were no:
I noticeably affected by conditions in
, ; the stork market. The weekly state- *
1 I rnent of the member banks of tln>
1 Federal Reserve System showed an
1 | increase in investments, the gains be
1 j ing made up of securities other than /
United States bonds, and a drop in
1 ! commercial loans indicating that the
banks were still buying bonds on bu!
! unco.
In domestic securities it was not the
: first mortgage rails in which the buy
' , ing was most active, although some
of these were higher, as for instance
1 i Atchison General 4s, w hich sold above
93, but the better class of industrials
j and particular!y the oils. General
1 Petroleum 5s and Standard Oil <>f
I New Jersey 5s are illustrations. Ir
the utilities Consolidated Gas 5 1 .
''and American Telephone and Teh
graph 5Us were equally strong.
In middle-grade rails all the F
Louis-San Francisco bonds wer»
I higher, led by the prior lien A 4
There was a brisk demand for New f
York. Chicago and St. Louis 5Us and
the Southern Railway general 4s.

Western 5s and in the industrial
' group United States Rubber ss,
‘ which, at 96, were up over a point
[ j American Beet Sugar 6s were higliei
’ , and the other sugar bonds were well
| supported. An exception to the gen
eral tnend was Park Lexington 6Us
‘ . which sold down rather sharply.
‘ ; In the foreign group the French
' : issues were again the leaders. Gains r
Uof a point were recorded by Kst 4
• j Railway 7s and Paris Lyons and
i Mediterranean 6s, while the Paris
.[Orleans 7s and the Norde Railway
. 6' 2 s. made smaller advances. Seine %
7s crossed 98, within a small fraction
• of the record for all time, and French^
• *7s, selling at par, again duplicated
■their best previous price. A
