Broader Demand for Bonds Is a

Baltimore & Ohio Report for
November Shows Loss

[Associated Press]
NEW YORK, Doc. 20.—A broader
:itnl more general demand for bonds
■was the moat notable feature of to
day's operations In the securities mar
ket. The stock market was only mod
erately active, and its tone of the most
part irregular. It '™ to be tho
prevailing opinion, however, that the
financial situation lias improved in tho
last few weeks.
Trading on tlio stock exclianKc was
almost wholly professional and cen
tered around the more active Issues,
Including the Harrlman stocks and the
coalers. Union Pacific and Southern
Pacific made further gains.
The movement in stocks Included
several of the moro obscure railway is
sues, but the Industrial specialties were
almost entirely neglected. Late in the
session a drive against Reading un
settled the entire list and caused a
heavy closing. London was again a
moderate purchaser.
The west Is said to have purchased
moderately of bonds and other high
grade securities during recent days. A
better feeling prevails In that section
because of the easier monetary condi
tions.
There was a further drain on the
gold holdings of the Hank of Engrland,
which sent $250,000 to the continent,
and $100,000 to South America. A fur
ther rise hero in foreign exchange
practically precludes all possibility of
gold Imports for a time,
The Baltimore & Ohio report for No
vember showed a loss In net earnings
of (686,000, and a total loss In not for
the first five months of the llseal year
of $1,400,000. The annual report of tho
Missouri Pacific was considered favor
able, in that earnings on the capital
stock were about 3 1-3 per cent, with
a larger expansion of gross and sur
plus applicable to dividends, almost
$1,700,000 in excess of the previous
year. .„
Total sales of bonds, par value, $3,
--110,000. United States bonds were un
changed. *

CHICAGO, Dec. 2\—Dry w-ath"!- In tho
southwest was tho main factor In today's
whc:it mark"!, Judging frcm Bttrfti.ce Indica
tions. The r^al cause oC the- rirnnpth was
the attempt at buying back tho short wheat
put out by small tr;ultr.-) yesterday. This
fvheat was bought by strong bulls, who today
flooded tha trftdo in all directions with advlca
to buy fur n rally, There was a Kroat deal
'.if buying of .lufy wh<*at by southwestern
houses, but the latter an.l others sold May j
on thn advances, Tho northwest sold eonsld- j
arable May wheat here and a great rV'al came
from scattered ctmniisaiou sources. European
markets heavy.
Corn madid n fair advance. It w.i^ largely
In sympathy with tho Imlgo in wheat an.!
dus to covering by local shirts. Offerings
wore quite limited until tho market rallied a
little, when they began to show a. fair in
crease. Nil r-a.jtcrn or export demand, but
cash corn was steady to si<s higher,
Oatrf ' started easier for December because
of largo deliveries yesterday. Tho market
advanced tnni' later with corn. Elevators
bought December and Bold .May: rash houses
sold December and May. Corn traders bought
considerable oats.
Provisions were active early and for a good
portion or the; session, but quieted down lat«.
There was heavy hiiyms o£ May laid, which
precipitated much covering en stop i^ss or-lets
by shorts In January product, mainly ribs.
There were Increased offerings on tha swells
and some reaction, but tho market was a
nervous one.
