An order for 5,835 pasBenger and
freight cars to cost about $2,000,000
was received by the Pittsbur : Trade
Commission from .France.

Chicago, Aug. 13 Cancellation
yesterday by representatives of the
allies of contracts aggregating nearly
2,000,000 bushels of wheat, bought
for September shipment to Europe
was puzzling the grain trade early
Not only were cancellations report
ed by Chicago concerns, but some
seaboard exporters claimed to have
closed out y open contracts.
Canadian exporters -also reported
some cancellations. James A. Pat
ten, a former heavy trade operator,
discussing the cancellations, said:
"If peace were in . sight, Europe
would still need whea arid she would
have the credit to g-et ;it. The can
cellation of orders, r therefore, would
seem to indicate one of two thitigs.
Either Europe has found a source of
new supply which means Russia; or
Europe finds that she cannot pay."
It was said that two of the largest
firms which cancelled contracts were
fthe Amour Grain Co. and the J. R.
Rosenbaum Grain Co.
It was about three days ago that
the buying stopped. European buy
ers started to beg out of their pur
chases, accepting a loss from 8 to 10
cents a bushel, it was said.
Unconfirmed reports which J. P.
Morgan was quoted as denying, that
the allies were cancelling orders for
wheat were reflected on the board of
trade at the opening today in prices
1 1-8 to 3 .5-8 cents under yesterday's
close. . ,
September wheat, the option most
affected, closed yesterday at $1.11 1-8.
It sold in different parts of the pit at
the opening today at $1.10 to $1.07 1-2.
Immemidately thereafter there was a
sale at $1.0S. December contracts
showed a maximum opening decline of
3 1-2 cents at $1.06.
Traders generally were skeptical a3
to the importance of the cancellations.,
but the tone of the market was ner

CUT IN FREIGHT
RATES TO MEAN
V'ashington, Aug. 13 Ultimate re
ductions in hard coal prices were seen
by dealers who have kept in close
touch with anthracite production . in
the interstate commerce commission's
decision making sweeping cuts in
freight' rates on the product. They ex
plained that the decision was expected
to put independents on the same foot
ing as companies controlled by the
hard coal carrying roads.
The decision affects freight rates on
anthracite coal from the Pennsylva
nia coal fields. Generally lower rates
called . reasonable are prescribed and
the roads are required to establish
through routes and publish through
rate's to be paid by all shippers. " The
reductions ordered amount to 15 cents
a ton on shipments of the so-called
prepared "sizes such as stove, nut and
egg coal, from the mines to tidewater,
and 10 cents a ton on the smaller sizes
of coal. These rates will now be
$1.45 and $1.35 a ton. Cuts to in
terior points range all the way from
10 to 80 cents a ton.
