SHARP GAINS IN STOCK MARKET Houston Oil Features Trading With 13-Point Rise. NEW YORK. July 9.—The buying: movement was continued at the opening of the stock market today. Initial figures showing advances from fractions to over 4 points. Strombers Carburetor was prominent, advancing 4% to 971?. Barrett Company and Manati Sugar were other strong fea tures. both issues making gains of around 2 points. „ Fractional improvement was noted in the motor and railroad shares. Among features of the session’s trad ing was Houston OIL which advanced 13 points net to 103. Reading became the feature of the mar ket early in the afternoon, the stock selling as high as 91%. an overnight gain of more than four points. The upward movement continued with small setbacks. Equipment stocks were the exception to the general trend. Bald win went below 125 and American Loco motive reacted about 2 points. Call money ruled at 7 per cent, but scattered selling came into the market during the last half hour, when call money got up to 9 per cent. Reactions in the majority of instances did not amount to over a point from the day’s previous high. Government bonds were unchanged, with railway and other bonds steady. Total sales of stock were 939,400 shares; bonds, $8,512,000. (By Thomson & McKinnon) —July 9 With a broadening tendency in the stock market we must expect special in terests will not be slow in forcing the favorites to the front. A few Issues have taken on an aspect of sensationalism in the manner In which quotations have been advanced. For the ultimate good of the market this tendency is unfortunate, because at this time in particular we need stability and gradual improvement, rather than violent advances, so as not to disturb the money market. Today money was comparatively easy, the renewal rate was satisfactory and while there was some shifting of loans, which is an incident at the close of the week, no difficulty was experienced so far as it known in obtaining new loans. The market was fairly broad all day. but a little irregularity developed, which is not at all surprising, considering the fact that we already have enjoyed a fair advance, with reasonable profits tempting holders. Reading became one of the features of the market, but this can hardly be con strued as relating to the general railroad situation, although there was a fair de mand for rails, particularly the lower priced ones. We see nothing at the moment to war rant any unusual market enthusiasm, but feel so long as the money market does not present any unusual obstacles, stocks will continue upward.

CLEANING FIRM DISSOLVES, Final certificates of dissolution today were filed with Secretary of State Ed Jackson by the Swiss Cleaners and Dyers of Indianapolis. GRAINS STEADY AFTER DECLINE Good Buying on Breaks Serv es to Balance Market. CHICAGO, July 9. —Grain futures closed about steady on the Board of Trade today after a session in which good buying on the breaks kept the price up. The same bearish factors—weather, crop conditions and foreign selling— were In evidence and there was a selling rush at the opening. Provisions were higher at the close. Prices broke toward the end on word from New York that three steamers had arrived tllere with 700,000 bushels of Argentine corn, with 800,000 bushels more offered, c 1 f New York, in bags, at $1.38. Corn Products refused to bid, as it has four months’ supply, so local longs start ed dumping their lines, and found sup port lacking on the way down. (By Thomson & McKinnon) There was a little over-night selling pressure early and after a little stead iness, the market had a further liquidat ing period, which rather cleaned It up. The buying was of a better glass than the selling all day. The basis for it was less weakness in the cash situation than expected with higher prices for cash wheat and rye. After this buying support took care of the offerings, a further wave of short covering and new buying came on its re ports of northwest rust. Some buying had the government re port for a basis. Crop conditions are so favorable that anything in way of a cha.ige would likely be detrimental, but from present conditions sales on bulges are still sug gested. Oats gave a good account of Itself, be ing less weak than might have been ex pected with so much pressure on corn. Cash oats were finally l%c higher than yesterday. We are going to have comparatively high wheat, rye and corn prices for some time to come and tinder present condi tions we still believe tint September and December oats, bought at these exces sive discounts under .’ash prices, will prove remunerative.

U, S. REVENUES JUMP IN STATE Collections for Year Greater by $14,308,054. According to George YV. Spencer, acting internal revenue collector for Indiana, revenues collected during the fiscal year ended June 30 showed an increase of ap proximately 24 per cent over the revenues collected during the fiscal year ended June 30, 1919. The total amounts collected during the fiscal year 1920 totaled $73,608,786.91, as compared with $59,300,076.30 for 1919, showing an Increase of $14,308,054.06. The income tax receipts showed a total of $46,091,162.20 for 1920, with only $23,- 017,604.65 ns miscellaneous taxes, while $34,572,093.71 In income taxes were col lected In 1910, with $24,728,619.14 In mis cellaneous taxes. The gain in the revenue collection is entirely w'itbln the Income taxes as the miscellaneous taxes have fallen off $811,014.40 during the last year. However, it is thought that the amount of the miscellaneous taxes will climb during the next year under the cam paign that is being waged for the collec tion of luxury taxes, which is Included in the mlscellaenous group. Whisky taxes, theater taxes, narcotic stamps, udmission taxes and brokers' taxes are among the itemized list that make up what is known as the miscella neous group of taxes, Mr. Spencer said. Up to September of last year there were two divisions of the state for in ternal revenue collections, the western division, with headquarters at Terre Haute, and the eastern division, with headquarters at Indianapolis, but at that time they were merged into one and the general headquarters placed at Indian apolis.

BEING ‘FIRED 9 PET COX ON ROAD UP Democratic Nominee Tells How He ‘ Quit ’ Paper . DAYTON, 0., July 9.—Two men, one a small town school teacher, and the other a railroad president, guided his career to a presidential uominatilon. Gov. Cox believes. The school teacher, John Q.
