I -J New Toric. Nov. "n ? International consideration Influenced ' tlie financial markets last week to an unwonted de gree. All other ?vent? were eclipsed by the deliberations of the armament conference. whose proceedings were strengthened by the approval which greeted the proposals of tho United States government ' Professional traders perpetrated a aeries of bear raids against most of the erstwhile war favorites, but the-.? maneuvers were abandoned when It be came evident that a worldwide peace program would revive activity in many established branches of industry. Conservative opinion in Wall street Inclines to the belief that much time will bo spent and many modifications may be male In the present plans of the conference. It also believes that ir resistible forces are working for tb? betterment of world conditions. Dealings In stocks were extensi\? al though a very large proportion of the trading encompassed oils, industrials and specialties In which pools or > Isques had a dominant interest, ('oalrrs were the only group among rails to man iV't more than moderate activity and strength.- this Improvement coinciding with the sale of the Jersey Central's coal Tands ami resumption <-f dividends by Chesapeake & Ohio and Hocking Val ley. The apathy of railroad shares was al most fully balanced by a steady Inquiry for bonds of that description. Proof that the Investment situation rests upon a firm foundation was furnished by the success which attended many new .offering?, notably the New York Telephone $."0.hop.inn bond issue. Indications that the money market is developing greater ease, especially for commercial accomodations, were noted during the week. On the other hand. It was intimated that even under the most favorable conditions occasional fturr:es are likely ^o attend the heavy I1 requirements of 'he financial month of the year. British hills were the only f.?r:n of exchange to derive substantial benefit from the trend of affairs at Washington. Sterling ad\anee to a fraction over $ I Its maximum quotation for six months. The German rate reacted almost to Its low record for recent weeks, but that circumstance was offset by assurances that Germany's next indemnity pay ment will be met on demand. I N. Y.
