NEW YORK, Nov. 4.— The bank state
ment today for the first time in miiny
weeks agreed with preliminary estimates
based on the known movement of money
and on other factors.
For that reason, apparently ns much as
for any other, it came as a shock to
speculative sentiment and caused a break
In prices of stocks. The forces at work
for the depletion of bank reserves were
not noticed during the week and the
speculation in stocks gave an obvious
indication of expansion of loans, but op
erators have come to depend on a modi
fled bank statement to save the appear
ance of conditions.
Yesterday's rise In call money rates to
6^4 per cent was a confirmation of the
situation. The banking situation, how
ever, was almoßt ignored today up to
the time of the appearance of the weekly
statement on the stock market tape. The
response in the market was immediate
and the closing tone was easier after a
Blight rally caused by hasty profit-tak
ing on the part of the bears in the board
The surplus reserve of the banks Is cut
down by the week's operations 510,076,650,
bringing It to a meager $2,254,275. The
heavy interior requirements for the cur
rency have reduced the cash in the banks
Borne $7,405,100, thus effectually dlßslpat
ing the speculative hope that tho turn In
the Interior currency movement has set
In in favor of New York. Yesterday's
sharp rise In the open market discounts
at Berlin was followed today by an ad
vance In the official rate of discount of
the Imperial bank of Germany to 4% per
cent, and there was a sharp drop In ster
ling exchange at Berlin, further marking
the pressure on that money market.
The advance In the bank rate in tho
middle of the bank week in itself marks
an unusual situation. Sterling exchange
and the money markets In New York
were nominal, as Is usual on Saturday,
but the tone was firm and there was
growing expectation that gold would go
out next week.
Today's early stock market showed vio
lent speculative advances In a number
of comparatively 1 obscure specialties.
Reading was under pressure and sold at
one time four points below last night,
closing only a fraction above the lowest.
The loan expansion by the banks of
$16,453,000 was attributed for the most
part to the speculation of the week in
the stock market and bankers made little
disguise of their satisfaction with the
check administered to the stock market
- Total sales of bonds, par value, $2,105,000.

Missourian Who Declined One Post
Is Now Awaiting An
WASHINGTO, D. C. Nov. 4.— Stanley,
Stoner, the St. Louis club man whq
made the Journey to Calcutta at govern*
ment expense with an appointment as
United States consul at that place and
decided not to take the job, is not in
so much disfavor as would seem from
published accounts. He now occupies
the queer status of being; an appointed
of the government without having a,
place. He accepted the appointment to
Calcutta and went there expecting to
take the consulate. There being some
delay in the arrival of his exequatur
he asked his predecessor, Robert ■ F.
Patterson, to continue with the duties
of the office until the exequatur should
come. Following this arrangement «
period of more than usual heut came on
and Mr. Stoner made numerous com*
parisons between the temperatures ot
India and those of St. Louis, to which
from^hlldhood he had been accustomed,
beside" having had the experience ot
a Bummer or two In Texas.
Btoner concluded that he would not
wait for the exequatur and Bet about
on the return homeward. From Paris
he wrote the state department, , ex
plaining what had taken place and
asked the favor of a transfer to. some
post where the climate would be more
agreeable, even If the salary, which at
Calcutta la $5000 a year, should be less.
Mr. Stoner has drawn no salary since 1
he left the United States for the far dls*
tant poßt, although he would be en*
titled to pay If he performed the du
ties of the Calcutta consulate even
temporarily. There are at present no
consulates) conveniently vacant for him |
and he may wait some time before he
CHn dovetail his wishes into opportuni
ties. The state department Is not in
formed whether Btoner >. will 1 wait ■lq !
Faxla or return to tills country^ .
