June 17. There was very little activity In the. stock list, while the net changes In the leading rall3 and the ever Important Steel stock were not especially Important. Tho Hill shares, because of a turn of profit taking, showed positive weakness the only evidence of anything positive In the entire market. No one knew wlh any posltlveness why the activity had faded, whv the good rally started yes terday had been abandoned. The news of the morning was of a favorable char acter, but news of the kind circulated was not the kind !o revive a dull and uninteresting market. The general belief Js that the Inter state Commerce Commission is about to hand the coal roads a quince of some kind the Street expects It. doesn't know just what it will be. and is anxious for the blow to land wants the worst over just as soon as possible. Reciprocity lias helped but Is probably an Influence with tiie fuli effect exerted, or dis counted so far as It will effect the list other than the specialities.

It is patent to all onlookers that the eighth Is still a potent factor in the market It matters not whether tho eighth or a larger fraction is a profit or a loss, it Is about the limit of the speculative activity of the trade on 'Change with room traders, while anything over the commission Is eag&rly gathered In by the specu latively inclined customers. The pub lic Is still a non est quality and not to be reckoned with. Congressional investigations are keeping timid operators In a nervous condition, but the digging so far has not caused much uneasiness on the Street.

Washington Gas was the one utility showing in the sales and the sale, one transaction, was at 88, A little Commercial National Bank stock sold at 200 and two ten-share lots of United States Trust at 119 and 120 respectively. Not a transaction was made In bonds. It is Just as well that the summer adjournments on Saturday are near at hand Indeed today's session and the one hold a week ago might Just as well have been abandoned. The election of ex-Senator Nathan B. Scott an president of the I'nlted States Trust Company will be accomplished on Monday afternoon, confirming the se lection of a caucus of directors last evening.

Production from domestic and foreign ores is shown as 45,630.145 pounds of copper, of which .6,y21,3O0 pounds were from the company s own ores. An Im portant feature of the report Is the in creased recovery of the domestic ores treated, fiom 2.205 per cent copper and .75 ounces of silver In 1S09, to 2.329 per cent and 1.03 ounces of Hllver In 1910 Notwithstandlng that total cost for the year showed an Increase from $5.45 to $5.76, due principally to a higher mining cost traceable largely to developments, the cost of production was reduced from 11.64 cents for the previous year to 11.51 cents a pound. Disregarding construo tlon thlj cost was 9.66 cents a pound. Wireless on Ships After First of July Two weeks from today every outgoing ocean bound steamship, carrying more than fifty passengers, will either have to be equipped with a wireless appara tus capable of sending messages at least a hundred miles, or the owners will have to hold themselves ready to pay a fine of $5,000 for the boat'B failure to comply with the new Congressional reg ulation taking effect July 1. In addition to having the apparatus ready for use, the vessel will also have to have on board an operator who has received a certificate of efficiency from the government to whose authority the ship is subject. As a consequence a new division of the Department of Commerce and Labor has been formed to take charge of the inspection- of all wireless apparatus n use on ocean-bound vessels. Three wireless ship inspectors will be ap pointed, one for the North Atlantic, from New York to the Canadian boun dary; one for the South Atlantic, from Philadelphia to Galveston, and one for tho Pacific. The new law does not authorize the refusal of clearance In case of violation of its provisions, but specifically pro vides for the imposition of a fine of not more than $5,000 unon conviction by the court. It will devolve upon the col lector of customs at each port to de termine If any vessels sailing from his port are violating this law. Ships plying between ports not more than 200 miles apart will not be af fected by the new regulation, but all otlfer passenger-carrying boats will have to comply with its provisions.
