MARKET WEARS
UNCERTAI IS LOOK
NEW YORK, ;Sept. I<?.—Hesita
tion- and- uncertainty 7 . were ; writ
ten on the faoeof: the, market to
day.- • The undertone was | heavy
and sometimes -weak, but at other
times there was evidence of resist
ing power and signs of support
which implied a protective influ
ence. -• \u25a0 > .
The transactions in United
States*, steel were more- than
double those in any other one se
curity, and when dealings in Read
ing and Union Pacific were added,
there was not mucn left of the
rest of the market. . The great
preponderance of the operations in
United States steel gave that stock
a large sympathetic effect on the
general market. There was insist
ent talk, also, of an open cut in
prices of steel products.
Some effect of this influence was
the report on European ' copper
stocks, showing a decrease in two
weeks of upward of 4.000,000
pounds and bringing the Euro
pean visible supply down to the
lowest level touched in 12 months.
The preliminary estimates of the
week's currency movement were
interesting as indicating a balance
of receipts over shipments of cur
rency hy express from the in
terior. The loss of cash is sub
treasury operations of $6,053,000
seems in be thus reduced to little
ov^r $5,000,000. The complications
over the financing of the cotton
movement remained a subject for
consideration in connection with
the money situation.
Bonds were easy. Total sales
(par value), $1,755,000.
United States bonds were un
changed on call.
NEW YORK. Sept. 16. — E. F.
Hi/tton's wire says: With a pre
ponderance of bear talk and much
short selling in today's stock mar-i
k*t. prices yielded sharply in the
active issues • and remained de
pressed through the bulk of the
session. The market was one
largely affected by rumors en
tirely in connection with politics
and the steel situation, and. un
necessary to say, these rumors
were greatly exaggerated as to
the position of big people toward
the market.
A considerable short interest
has accumulated in view of the
bearish position toward the mar
ket by the public. and it seems
reasonable to believe now that a
strong rally \u25a0will occur.

Boston Copper Stocks
BOSTON. Sept. 16. — E. F. Hutton's wire says:
The market reacted fractionally all around in
sympathy with N>w York, but the declines
brought absolute dullness, with r strong ten
dency toward the close. Tie heavx decrease of
the visible copper abroad duri«g the first . two
weeks of September should make for a consid
erable encouragement in the copper shares from
now to the next monthly report, due October S.
The tone of the copper shares is somewhat
weaker and trading continues dull and confined
principally to the room. On the whole. . the
market is featureless. A decline of 3 points is
noted In Osceola, which sold at 125. Fractional
declines of % point in North Butte. Indiana
and Superior Copper. The industrial list Is la
active, but Kftnewhat stronger.

"Trade and Industrial exports are rather more
irregular. The first rush of fall buying is over
at many cities, but fall festivals and state fairs
still attract visitors to markets. Western re
ports are still the most optimistic, . and liberal
marketing of local crops has made far more
plentiful money supplies and an apparently
easier position of western banks. Reports froni
leading Industries are of rather less than normal
expansion la activity. Iron and steel are re
ported no more active, and a larger volume \u25a0of
capacity. ls reported «ncmployed. y \u25a0 .

the market being oversold. At no time was the
situation as weak as expected, following the
depression in both •.domestic and foreign centers
yesterday. Talk of export sale* had much to do
with bringing about an upward turn. Another
bullish factor -was a - substantial falling off in
world's shipments, as compared with last week.
Attention also ! was given sharply .to an esti
mate that the total Russian production of grain
Is 150.000,000 bushels short of last year, and to
a report* that "Russian shipments for this week
will be relatively small.. . ','. — iC-

says: . Covering by larger 6horts which stam
peded the smaller ones later in the day tnrned
a weak early market into a higher one later.
The total trade was not very large and it was
because of the smallness of the market that the
purchase* took so much effect. The market here
was at.no time as weak as expected, following
the weakness shown In -domestic- and foreign
markets yesterday. There was further .weakness
abroad today, although* LlverpooL' cloned -at a
substantial rally. Southwestern receipts con
tinue free.' northwestern, small. Oklahoma mar
ketings of wheat are about as large now as the
followinc harvest. Minneapolis wheat stocks
increased 1.130.000 bushels this week. The flour
trade in the northwest is in a bad position and
working at a disadvantage as compared with the
winter wheat country. Cash wheat here firmer.
September wheat was relatively stronger than
other months. • Claimed some shipping business
here, bnt ' the total not named. Milling sales
light. Duluth wheat stocks are about the same
as a week ago. 'Tte world's wheat shipments

A leading Birmingham. Ala., bank has a de

100.000.000 bushels of corn this year, against
44.000.000 last year. 'The country has sold more,
corn today at country stations, but offerings here
are not yet large. Shipments from Chicago In
the last four days have been very heaTy. Ship
