GOOD STATE JOB
FOR WILTON MAN
As the time draws near or the civil
service amendment,- passed ' by the
General Assembly last week, to go into
effect. Interest ' begins to center in
probable changes in the office" of the
secretary? of the state, Charles - D.
Burnes of Greenwich. , It", is generally
understood that. Chief Clerk Thomas
B- Myers will be 'one of the first to go,
and it is also said, on good authority,
that his successor ' will be Raymond
COmstock of Wilton. Mr. Comstock
has been a life long Republican, and
was formerly employed by the West
ern Electric Company. He is married
and has one daughter. It is under
stood that Mr. Comstock has been at
the Capitol the past-week on at least
one occasion, familiarizing. himself

-.- New York, March .1. Opening. A
one point advance in Union Pacific
and a two point ; decline in Louisville
& Nashville to 110,'' its new minimum,
were- the principal features of to-day's
early stock market. Prices otherwise-inclined
responding favorably ' to s a moderate
inquiry while Pennsylvania was heavy
on its poor statement of earnings for
January. Shares of the motor com
panies were again active.
Noon Imports of $750,000 gold
from London where the metal was ob
tained at the low exchange rates of a
fortnight ago. acted as a partial stim
ulant in the early dealings but prices
fell under their best before the end of
the first hour with especial heaviness
in New York Central and Canadian
Pacific. United States Steel yielded
most of its gain, when a lot of 8,000
shares had changed hands at 43. By
midday trading became exceedingly
dull, latest , developments In the east
ern war zone being reflected in anoth
r sevr dcline in grain options.
(T. Li , Watson & Co.)
Indications are not wanting of slow
business revival: Steel mills are ope
rating at increased . capacity, coke
shipments have jumped 10 per cent.,
and the bank clearances are less un
favorable when compared with last
year. A big buying power no doubt
lies under the market and the coun
try is too : big and too wealthy to be
kept- down always. In view of the un
certainties referred to, however, it's
a good time to pick one's way care
fully. ' ; ..
