LATEST FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL REPORTS; STOCKS AND BONDS
TEMBLOR RUMOR
ALARMS MARKET
Sale of Bond Issues Largest in
the Recent History of
the Exchange
R. R. SITUATION IS ACUTE
Bank of England Disappoints by
Failure to Reduce the
Discount Rate
(Associated Press)
1 NEW YORK, Dec. 15.—The most
salient feature of today's market for
securities was the greater breadth ami
hotter demand for bonds. BalM of these
issues wore the largest In the recent
history of thn stock exchange and a
correspondingly improved tone was re
ported in direct sales by bankers.
Further Improvement was shown In
.stocks during the early part of the ses
sion, but later almost all of the early
gains were wiped out. The selling
movement in tho final hour was ac
companied by rumors of an earthquake
on the Pacific coast. These reports
were promptly denied and were hardly
a market influence.
Over night developments wore of an
adverse or negative character. The
failure of the Bank of England to re
duce its discount rate cave rise to some
disappointment, although this was
scarcely evident in the prices of Amer
icans at London, many of which made
substantial advances.
A fall in the Bank of England's pro
portion of reserve to liabilities from
60.59 to 49.98 per cent probably ac
counts for the malntainanco of the dis
count rate, while the decline of £75,
--200,000 in the aggregate of checks cleared
through the London banks for the week
compared with the same week last year
may be accepted as an Indication of
the dullness of general trade in the
British metropolis.
That an acute stage seemed to have
been reached in the western railroad
labor situation may be gathered from
the report that the managers of the
western roads are said to have ap
pealed to the government at Washing
ton to avert the threatened strike of
the engineers.
Bonds were firm throughout. Total
sales, par value, $3,077,000. • •
United States bonds were unchanged
at the close.

CHICAGO, Dec. 15.—Wheat has sold today ]
about ','• higher than yesterday's high point,
and was at no time more than lie lower than
yesterday's top. Trade was very much of tho
same character as recently, but them has been
a little selling from Europe today, the east
and northwest, Local short* were nervous,
and a few of them cover*?]. Apparently the
leading lungs have let them have wheat on t'lio
, swells, XJoth foreign and domestic news to
; day was of a depressing sort, the slack de
| mand for cash wheat, however, being natural!
to this season of the year. Australian, Argen
tine anil Ilus.-ian crop news today was gnol.
One of tho leading authorities estimates
world's wheat crop ii only 8,000,000 bu leal than
j last year, an I virtually 300,000,000 more than
the average of the luat five years. Threshing
returns in Northern Argentine continue ex
cellent. Primary rocHpts In this country ex
ceed those of a pear ago by nearly 60 per cent,
and in the southwest are over three times as
large as a year ago, dssplto the dry ather
claims from Kan a* and Oklahoma. Kansas
"City receipts today are more than five times
as laniG as a year ago. Some evening up for
the government report closed tho market easy.
The government figures make no particular
change In wheat.
Corn prices had quite a bulge today, but,
I like wheat, took a weak turn late In the day.
I Leading lonss in December wero bidding the
I price up, along with good buying of May by
, the wheat longtf. yulte a quantity of coin was
I sold on the advance, much of It by leading
I short*, while (mailer shorts were frightened
j Into covering ..luring the bulge. The corn crop
is raited a trifle by the government, making
the crop 3,136,000,000 bushels, and Is bearish.
Oats ranged lilKlier with other grains early,
losing much of the advance in the last hour.
There was considerable covering by small
shorts, much belated investment buying and
renewed selling by leading shorts, who cov
ered lower down some time ago. December
shorts were the best buyers. The oats, crop
was raised by the government to 1,121,765,000
bushels, which Is bearish.
January and May provisions appear to have
taken different ways today. Much evening
up In the near and much unloading of the
deferred months. January product was rela
tively higher, but stock yards people sold May
very freely, while January shorts covered.
