Narrow trading IN STOCK MARKET 'Tone Improved, but Net Gains, as a Rule, Small. NEW TORE, July 22.—Price* showed Improvement ranging up to a point at the opening of the stock market today. Dealings, however, continued very quiet. Dispatches indicating that the unions will accept the railroad wage award caused the advances at the start. In most cases, however, gains were only frac tional. Preaanre continued on the sugar chares and Punta Alegre made an early low at 90%, off 4%. Ralls were decidedly firm. Movements were irregular In the active stocks all through the first bout. In the second hour food Btocks acted well, with Corn Products selling at 95%, up 1%. Mexican Petroleum advanced 2 points on sales of only a few hundred shares. Dullness continued In the afternoon. Sugars were still under pressure, al though Puqta Alegre held between 00 and 91. Crucible sold down to but rallied afterward. Tbe market closed steady. Govern ment bonds were unchanged and rail way and other bonds steady. Total sales of stock were 328,100 shares; bonds, $7,798,000. (By Thomson ft McKinnon.) —July 22 During the greater part of the session, stagnation was the rule. We had only occasional trading and fluctuations wer Irregular, though in some of the issues price changes were good and entirely In consistent with the small volume of busi ness. There was no uniformity, and the mar ket had its strong as well as its weak spots. During the afternoon a rallying tendency became rather general, but it probably was the result of technical con ditions rather tnan any actual change In market factors. The one helpful Influence was a reason, ably easy condition in the money mar. ket, ample funds being offered at the renewal rate. . The general news continues of a dsuht. ful ebarnet“r and indicates a tendency to ward reaction in business. Aside front temporary fluctuations we can see no defi nite trend at the moment, hut there Is evidently a decided disposition on tne part of the public to huv stocks on any encouragement, especially on any im provement in banking conditions.

GRAINS BULGE ON DAMAGE REPORTS Substantial Gains Held at End After Early Weakness. CHICAGO, July 22. —Wheat prices dropped 2%c early In today’s session of the Board of Trade, but bulged 3c above yesterday's close as the most seri ous rust reports of the season poured In, mostly from South Dakota. Corn rallied from its early slump on persistent buying by a strong commission housf that has turned bullish on short covering. Oats followed corn and more than wiped out Its opening decline. Rye trailed, and provisions scored a net gain in sympathy with grains, after being easier at the start. Trading was dull in all pits, with corn leading the market. New outside buying in corn was light, but the technical posi tion has been strengthened by over selling on the recent break, with pros pects of decreasing receipts worrying the shorts. The seaboard reported a good demand for wheat, with Italy taking some of the half million bushels. (By Thomson ft McKinnon) —July 22- Reports of liberal export acceptances in wheat and firmness in corn kept wheat strong today. Estimated sales were around million bushels in the past twenty-four hours, with Italy the best buyer. Some conflict on northwestern re ports, but the majority do not claim very heavy damage as yet, although ad mitting possibilities of trouble strongly exist. The impressive covering movement, started yesterday in corn, extended through today with highe- prices. The advance was pushed nlong by some anxiety regarding temperatures in the southwest, where 90 to 100 was ruling in limited area. Corn has had so much moisture and the plant is so vigorous it seems unwise to worry about seasonable heat, but never theless, strength was Imparted to the price from this fact. The placing of some cash corn for ship ment east from store here surprised the trade. Cash corn prices sympathized by advancing 2 cents. Light offerings of futures was the feature bn the advance, with buyers of yesterday supposedly following up their advantage today. With no impairment of the crop promised ns yet, we think it doubtful policy to follow the advance. Would pre fer letting It run Its course aud again work on the selling side. Cash oats up 2 cents and futures, while dull, were firm. Illinois reports were very favorable, while northwest news showed anxiety. The market will still take its tone from the corn action without some special de velopments CHICAGO GRAIN. —July 22- Open. High. Low. Close. Gain.

Yaw ger Company, contractors, today asked the Marlon county commissioners to sell bonds at 6 per cent interest, covering tbe construction of the Northwestern avenue bridge, and guarantee payment for work on the bridge. This action followed an opinion given the construetioq company by former Judge Charles Remster, of Smith, Keiu ster, Hornbrook ft Smith, that since the bonds were not sold on the date fixed for the sale, but on the day following, that legally it was necessary to readver tise tbe bonds before payment to the contractor could be made by tbe audi tor. I.eo K. Fesler, county auditor, who was pre.-ient at the hearing, refused to grant Mr. Walker's request, but he agreed to consult the state board of accounts and seek approval for advancing money from tbe general fund In order to speed up the work on the new bridge. Mr. Walker told the commissioners that the legal tangle of tbe bonds and guarantee of payment of estimates had delayed the work on the bridge. The new bridge is estimated to cost $274,000.

HYDE WILL TAKE OYER WORK Temporary Arrangement Ef fected at Insane Hospital. S, " The Marlon county commissioners to day permitted Mrs. Loren S. Hyde, wife of the superintendent of the Julietta Hos pital for the Insane, to take over the' management of that institution, pending 1 the recovery of her husband, a patient/ at the Methodist hospital. Physicians at the hospital say he is suffering from a nervous breakdown. Dr. J. B. Young of Cumberland has been ordered to visit the Institution each 1 day in the absence of Dr. Hyde to exam ine the patients and assist Mrs. Hyde. Carlin Shank, county commissioner, in dicated that Dr. Hyde would probably be forced to resign as tbe head of the Institution as soon as he had recovered from hls illness, and that the commis sioners would select another executive. "Mrs. Hyde and her son will tem porarily take over the management of the institution.” said Mr. Shank, "and we will give Dr. Hyde a chance to re gain his health, but both he and his wife teid me that they felt it would be the best for bim to resign.” This situation developed following the exposure of conditions existing at the in stitution, when Monday and Tuesday the institution was destitute of coal, the steam pipes operating the fire protection system out of commission, and no fire In the boilers. Mr. Shank, in explaining the situation, blamed A. B. Meyer & Cos. with failure to deliver coal to the institution, but the coal company officials deny having re ceived notice that the institution wa* short of coal. Joseph G. Hayes, county commissioner, when Notified by Mrs. Hyde that the institution was without fuel, ordered coal sent from Cumberland to tbe In stitution. Dr. Hyde notified the commissioner* last week that coal was running low, Mr. Shank said. Quoting Dr. Henry C. Wright as au thority of a statement that Dr. Hyde nag a competent executive at Julietta, Mr. Shank defended the present head of the institution. “The whole trouble out there at Jull-i otta is that we are too crowded andi are forced to make the best of unfor-| tunate conditions, and that has caused Dr. Hyde to worry over the manage ment of the Institution until he has bro ken down," said Mr. Shank.
