NEW YORK. August 11. Trading
on the stock market today was the
most perfunctory and insignificant of
any week-end session thus far this
summer, dealings barely aggregating

Weekly trade reports were of a less
encouraging tenor, uncertainties at
Washington causing a further let-up in
many lines of trade. -
Iionds were irregular, industrials in

sales of bonds, par value, $1,235,000.
United States 2s and 3's advanced
Vi to one per cent and the fours hi to
per cent on call for the week.
CHICAGO. August 11. Sensational
breaks in prices of corn for Immediate
delivery almost monopolized attention
today in the grain trade. The fall
amounted in some cases to 27 cents a
bushel, as compared with 24 hours be
fore. Distillers were at least tempor
arily out of the market. Future de
liveries closed nervous at the same as
yesterday's finish to cents lower,
with December $1.34 to 1.34 and
May 112 1-8 to" 112. Wheat closed
three cents down but steady at 2.15
for September and oats off to
cents. Provisions showed advances of
15 to 30 cents. '
With the competition from distillers
eliminated, other industries were not
disposed to pay recent high premiums
for corn. It was said that many small
industries were closing down until
supplies could be obtained on a more
reasonable basis. Shorts in corn fu
tures here took profits on quite a lib
Bearish sentiment regarding wheat
became more pronounced in view of
an assumed unlikelihood of any sus
tained advance in prices.
Predictions of an enlargement of the
federal estimate of the oats crop tend
ed to ease the oats market.
New record breaking-upturns in hog
prices were dpulicated by provisions.
CLEARING HOUSE REPORTS
NEW YORK. August 11 The actual
condition of clearing house banks and
trust companies for the week shows
that they hold $72,035,370 reserve in
excess of legal requirements. This Is
a decrease of $96,700,500 from last
WEEKLY FINANCNAL REVIEW.
NEW YORK, August 11. The same
causes which have served to repress
advancing tendencies since the early
part of July again were operative dur
ing this week's irregular and at times
reactionary, sessions. Questions of
government price fixing and excess
profit taxation assumed siore definite
form. Developments wereTnainly help
ful to the shorf account.
In the several weeks that have elaps
ed since prices and taxes have become
almost the paramount issues, the doz
en stocks accepted as market leaders
show no steady market condition in
quoted values. Some of the steels and
other equipments are only 3 to 5
points lower, but Bethlehem is down
more than fifteen points, due more to
Coppers, save in a few instances,
have varied only slightly despite the
adverse labor situation. Important
rails are almost unchanged.
Trading has been almost wholly
speculative or professional with a lib
eral admixture of pool activities in
specialties, notably tobaccos and su
gars. The strength and activity of
shippings seemed to be predicted on
more substantial gorunds.
Extraordinary financial operations,
involving the heavy shifting of loans,
accompanied the firmer money market.
Time rates manifested no pronounced
change but funds were in much smal
ler supply. v

By U.S. Soldiers

SALT LAKE. Utah, Aug. 11. John
W. Riis, aged 28, Industrial Worker of
the World, who is out on $1000 bond
for refusing to register for the select
ive draft, created two disturbances in
the center of the business center this
afternoon by persisting in selling an
alleged seditious publication. S'oldiers
from Fort Douglas objected to Riis
wearing a regulation army shirt. His
newspapers were torn from him and
kicked through the streets and when
Riis refused to answer questions as
to what right he had to wear an army
shirt he was driven to cover In the
Socialist headquarters, half a bPock

ROOM WAS ROBBED
The room of John Markicevich in
Upper Lowell was entered and robbed
last Friday night while the ownerwas
at work and a small trunk taken there
from and carried down a ravine where
it was broken open and some $160 Irj
cash taken as well as some clothing.
The trunk was found by several small
boys who reported the matter. The
owner had not missed his trunk until
he was told of the matter by Deputy
Sheriff Red Gannon and Constable Joe
Hodges. There. Is no clue to the rob
ber but it is thought that it was some
one that was familiar with the premises.

COPENHAGEN, August 11. Lieu-j

Loringhoven, chief of the supplemen-
tary general staff of the German army, !
in an article here quoted in a German ;
newspaper, admits the falsity of the ;
German pretension that the violation !
of Belgium neutrality in the cam4
paign of August, 1914. was due to mil
itary and defensive necessity provok
ed by alleged preparations of the
French to invade Germany through
Belgium. General von Freytag-Loring-hoven
writes that, oa the contrary, the
French originally started to concen-,
trate their armies along their own
eastern frontier and made a belated :
change in their plans only after the :
German offensive was set in motion
through Belgium and the Germans
profited greatly from the resulting con
fusion and delay.

through Belgium during the first days j
of the war and of airplane and automo- J
bile attacks from Belgian territory, j
and other fairy tales which figured so
largely In German justification of the
invasion of Belgium, are not mention
The article describes the disastrous
effect of the sweep of that unexpected
German flood ntinn successive French
armies, and the advance to the Mame.
General von Freytag-Loringhoven de-
clares that the Germans retreated from
the Marne because they were too
week to break tnrougn tne rrencn line j
but he argues that although final sue-
cess was missed there, Germany, by j
seizing the opportunity of a daring ad
vance through Belgium, avoided war ,
on her own territory. j

Uterhart then related h'jw Mrs. De

influential connections, would be able
to get permanent control of the boy.
This in Fpite of the fact that the court
decreed tBe boy's time should be divid

"She was fearful," he said. "She
had listened to the boy, returning from
his father's people, say: j
" 'Mother, they say I shouldn't come ;
to you, that this isn't my home, that
my home is with my father.' "

in a great surge of hate.
