Today’s Market Gossip
New York wire says: "There is some
difference of opinion as to the extent of
decline in exports, but it is generally con
ceded that more ocean tonnage is to be
bad, which, in itself, indicates"a shrink
age in exports. Then wo have a severe
car shortage here and this is tending to
reduce business. Steel mills are begin
ning to feel the effect. When a weak
market comes we think only of the de
clines registered in speculative issues
but everything suffers. The four leading
trust company stocks of New York are
off 20 points for the week.”
Thomson & McKinnon stock letter by
wire from New York, says that there
can be no doubt but that the general
position of the market has been greatly
improved and the strain relieved by the
extensive liquidation this week. ‘That
loans have been materially reduced seems
to be a foregone conclusion. For tnn,
reason it was only natural to expect a
little more stability today. It is true
there was more or less irregularity dur
ing the short session, but the general
undertone was better and prices, as a
rule, showed up better, but we are more
concerned with what is to come than
what is past. The question is will the
reserve board dtbe bankers of the
country relax or will the policy adopted
remain in full force. If there is to be
no change in the rediscount situation
there can be no doubt that al business
wll have to pass through the process ot
contraction and the stock market will be
deprived of he Incentive that is neces
sary to bring about an Important up
ward movement. It, therefore, seems to
us that ut the moment it is still advis
able to pursue of course of conservatism
and awaitdevelopments.

COTTON MARKET
HOLDS FIRMER
Foreign Exchange Situation
Still Rules Trading.
NEW YORK, Feb. 9.—The cotton mar
ket opened a little firmer Saturday at an
advance of about 12 points, due to mod
erate buying by Liverpool and some
week-end covering. Temperament re
mained bearish, however, because of the
foreign exchange situation and a les
sened demand for the spot article in the
south and fine weather throughout the
belt. At the end of the first twenty
minutes the market was quiet and 2 to 3
points net lower.
The market held very steady on a
good trade late today. Liverpool was a
buyer near the close. The final tone
was firm with prices 22 to 36 points
higher.
Who Got the Liquor?
PITTSBURG, Feb. o.—Prominent min
isters, educators and several noted pro
hibitionists learned today that their
names appear on physicians’ prescrip
tion blanks as purchasers of red “likker”
from drug stores here. Whether the
owners of the names really obtained the
liquor or their names were used by un
scrupulous physicians federal authorities
are not yet prepared to say.
One minister whose name appeared on
three different prescriptions Investigated
the matter and announced that the names
on the doctor’s permits undoubtedly had
been taken “as they came” from the di
rectory or from the telephone book.

All of the good work done by buyers in
pushing prices of hogs to a lower level
last week has been upset by the unusual
rally in jjrices in the last three market
days. Last Thursday the general sales
of good hogs were at $14.50 to sls and on
the opening market this week the bulk
of sales were at $15.50 to sl6 against
sl6 for the predominating price a week
ago. The principal cause of the ad
vance is a big shrinkage in the current
receipts. The run of 4.500 on Monday
was more than 4.000 smaller tlian a week
ago and 8,000 smaller than the same day
a year ago. Similar conditions are re
flected in the reports from other mar
kets, but buyers now believe prices hare
advanced enough to stimulate the mar
keting and that there soon will be ade
quate receipts. The market was sharp
ly higher for pigs that sold as high as
$15.75 and also for sows that sold as
high as sl4.
CATTLE.
Whatever change there might have
been in tbe cattle market was Interpreted
as more favorable to the selling side, but
apparently there was no distinct ad
vance in prices in any department and,
Indeed, there were few estimates lndi
onting any of the fat cattle were higher.
There seemed to be a gain In prices of
heifers valued higher than $9, but steers
of all kinds and the beef cows were
steady with the fill some advantage to
the owner. Canner cows were the only
cattle showing weakness and they were
25c lower. There was a stronger market
for calvea with fewer sales of veals low
er than $lB, but the top price was again
practically sl9. The demand for feed
ing cattle was slow, but sales were usu
ally at about steady prices.
SHEEP.
There was no excitement in the mar
ket for live mutton stock because of the
light receipts of fewer than 200, but there
wrß a prompt sale for the offerings at
strong prices. Lambs, better than any
her- recently, sold at sl9 and ewes
as hlglT as $lO were strong.

Comptroller of the Currency
Says No Need to Worry.
A circular letter received by the na
tional banks of Indianapolis from the
treasury department, controller of the
currency, YVashtDgtou, gives official con
firmation to the telegraphic reports re
ceived last week permitting national
banks to list Liberty bonds among their
assets at the purchase price, not the cur
rent market value.
“There is.” says the letter from th®
controller, “no cause for anxiety because
of the recent decline in the market value
of Liberty botids. The fail in prb - is
no reflection upon their Intrinsic vain®
and desirability, but the lower quota
tions offer Investors ah extraordinary
opportunity to obtain at very attractive
prices the best security in the world.”
The controller adds- “The people o*
this country need have no doubt o'.’ the
ability of this nation to now and al
ways meet In full every obligation and
commitment, and It is the opinion of well
informed students of the situation that
it should not be a long while beforo
Liberty bonds and Victory notes will
command, not only their par value, but
probably a considerable premium.
“United States Liberty bonds have al
ready been very widely distributed to
Investors and digested. On Nov. TT. 1919,
the amount of Liberty bonds owned by
all national banks amounted to only $S29.*-
000,000, which was less than 4 per cent
of the total resources of the nations*
banks at that time.
“The income of the people of tbe
United States in excess of ordinary liv
ing expenses,” says the controller,
“probably amounts at this time to moti
than ten billion dollars per annum, ned
: less than oDe-tenth of this estimated
! surplus investabie income, would be suf
ficient to absorb in twelve mbnths all
Investments still held by national banka
| In Liberty bonds.”
