New York
Stock Market
New York. September II.?Movements
0 ttt prices on the Stock Exchange to
? day indicated thai, for the time bring
at least. Wail Street was In a more
Cheerful mood. The market developed
its customary Irregulurity, and there
?were no signs that any substant'al sup?
port had been tendered. But trudlng
began with a higher level of prices.,
and during most of the session tho list
ranged somewhat above the previous
close. At the end of the day small
fractional gains were general, with a
few stocks a full point higher.
The heavlect selling occurred during
the forepart of the session, when for a
ahort period there seemod to be a re?
currence of the enforced liquidation so
often observed in the markets of the
past weeks. For a time the market
was depressed sharply, although the
only result was to cancel the earlier
gains. Only two of the active stocks
were forced to new low levols of the
year. Pennsylvania reeded to 11S\B
and Missouri Pacific to 35?i. The mar?
ket soon reversed Its position and
mounted to well above the -final range
of yesterday.
The advance resulted largely from
the covering of short contracts on the
part of operators who believed that
the market had been oversold The
market became dull on the advance,
the demand being limited largely to the
trading element. In spite of the long
extended downward movement there
has been no apparent Increase In the
amount of public participation in the
market
One of the most Important factors In
determining the market's tone was the
demand from abroad. Europe was a"
souroo of strength, the foreign liqui?
dation of recent days being replaced
by purchases of about 36,000 shares.
Only a small part of this amount was
for London account, Paris and Berlin
taking the larger part. The prevailing
uncertainty over European political
complications is reflected in the foreign
exchange market. In a decline In the
sterling rate at Paris and some firm?
ness in the sterling rate at Berlin
Changes in the Paris exchange market
have caused a slight advance here In
sight francs.
Outside the market leaders there
was much Irregularity. International
Harvester declined about two polnt.
on reiteration of the report of ap?
proaching proceedings by the Federal
government against the company. Pa?
cific Mail was one of the strongest ol
the specialties, with an advance of two
points. Prices were influenced but
slightly by the failure of a Stock Ex?
change firm, assurances being given
that the failure was not connected
with the present luisettlement of the
market and that it Involved no other
interests.
American Tobacco issues were excep?
tionally strong. !>.uvy buying of these
Issues was supposed to be in connec?
tion with the expected early comple?
tion of the plan of reorganization. The
advance In the 4 njid 0 per cent, bonds,
?which later reacted, was the feature of
the bond market.
Bonds generally were firm. Total
sales, par value, $2.435.000. United
States bonds were unchanged on call.

HIGH COST OF LIVING
HITS THE UNDERTAKER
_
Pittsburtj. September 12.?Tt Is an 111!
wind that doesn't blow, some, good i
Pitlsburg undertakers blame the high ;
costof living fc the low death rate, j
Business Is frightfully dull, and onf
doleful emhalmcr gives the following
reasons:
"The high cost, of living has re- j
duced the amount of eating. Increasing |
the healthful stutc.
"Or. Wiley Is having things his own I
way In the pure-food campaign.
"The steel truct's antl-clgarette cru?
sade has also helped.
"People simply are- not dying." says j
'the undertaker. "The last thirty days,
] will show the lowest death rate In the'
; history of the city. High prices have'
caused poor people to solve the eat- |
ing question and made eating a hoalth-f
ful. scientific, practice Instead of a
habit" _

10 SEEK RECOUNT
j
But Defeated Candidate for i
County Treasurer Has Not
Yet Asked for It.
Friends of S. M. O'Bannon. defeated
candidate for treasurer of Henrlco
county, are urging him to ask for a
recount of the votes cast in the recent
primary, In' Which H. C. Hechler
was declared the winner. Mr. O'Ban?
non said last night that he had not
been able to make up his mind as to
what course to take and c->uld not say
definitely whether or not he would ask
the county Democratic Committee for
the recount. Meanwhile, the ballots \
are locked up in a safety deposit '
vault, awaiting the ? Investigation if!
cne is ordered.
Mr O'Bannon has until ten days af- j
ter the primary to make up his mind. .
und unless ho takes some action he j
will have no redress after next Mon- |
day noon. The only grounds\to Jus- !
tify a recount so far, are that the
original count was made under adverse ,
circumstances and that either candi?
date might have profited by lt. In \
an indirect way there has been some
talk of fraud, but Mr. O'Bannon dis?
claims any knowledge of evldenc-- that
would lead to unfair work.
If he decides to ask for the recount.
Mr. O'Bannon will make formal appli?
cation to Chairman Fleet, of the Dem?
ocratic Committee, and the ballots will 1
be opened and canvassed in the pre*- I
ence of the committee at the county !
courthouse.
