HOCKING ROAD AND S. C, COAL COMPANY INDICTED If Convicted for Discrimination They Will Have to Pay $740,000. TOLEDO, O., Nov. 2.—Twenty-nine counts were returned against the Hock ing Valley railroad at 10:30 this morn ing by the Federal grand jury, which was called two weeks ago to consider charges of discrimination against the road, growing out of its connection with the Sunday Creek Coal Company. The grand Jury also returned nine counts against the Sunday Creek Com pany, making thirty-seven counts lu all. Should these indictments be sustained after a trial of the case and the max imum penalty imposed, the Hocking Valley will be subject to a (Ine of $560. 000 and the Sunday Creek Company $180,000, as the penalty for conviction under the law is a fine of from $1,000 to $20,000 In each case. The railroad was indicted on the ground of discrimination against ship pers and showing favoritism to the Sunday Creek company, a majority of whose stock was owned by the Hock ing Valley. The case is one of the most im portant ever brought to the attention of the Federal government here, as there is involved in it the question of whether a railroad can demand cash payment for freight from one of its shippers and extend unlimited credit to another. THE CHICAGO MARKET. CHICAGO, Nov. 2. — Hammering down of wheat prices appeared to be the order of business ou 'Change today. One house alone sold more than a mil lion bushels in less than a quarter of an hour. Buying was only done to take profits on short sales. Indeed, lack of investment purchases formed one of the chief reasons for the beari feeling rampant. Foreign advices, too, were more depressing than at any time of late. Australian and Russian offer ings were reported free at lower quota tions. The Liverpool market particu larly was sharply down, with heavy speculative realizing, while ports on this side of the Atlantic were said to be two or thre cents out of line for ex ports. Opening prices here showed a loss of %@% to %®%. December started at 88% to 89%. a decline o( %@% to %@%, and fell to 88%®%.

NEW YORK, Nov. 2.—The cottor market opened steady, at an advance oi i 3 'a 7 points, in response to steady cables | and renewed support from some of yes terday's late buyers, who were believed to be influenced by the talk of bullish ginning figures The market reacted two or three points during the first few minutes, but leading bulls continued moderate buyers, offerings were nol heavy, and prices during the middle oi the morning showed a net gain of about 6®11 points. Rumors that a prominent Southcrr authority would 'ssue a crop estimate of 13,000,00) bales this week, : nd that later reports to the National dinners Association showed 7,500,000 bales ginned to November 1, caused considerable sell ing during the late forenoon, and prices eased off to a net loss of about 801C points, although neither of the rumors were confirmed. Later there were denials of the 13, 000,000 bales estimate, and the market rallied to nearly the closing figures of last night on covering during the early afternoon, but sentiment was evidently much unsettled and the Improvement was barely maintained. Southern spot markets officially reported early were generally unchanged. — GERMAN SAVINGS BANK 77a BKOAD STWIJBT 4 AND 3i% INTEREST Assets over.$6,000,000.00 Surplus over . 330,000.00 Deposits made the first three days of every month draw interass from the first of the month.

AMATEUR SPECULATORS ARE SHY ON THE STREET. NEW YORK. Nov. 2.—The opinion was expressed this morning by an active speculator that If higher prices were established this week they would be due to the operations of the profes sional element and not to Important banking interests or to the most im portant speculators. Smaller specula tors are paying closer attention to de velopments from day to day of a na ture to affect the market. They are very much mixed however, as to what the trend of prices Is likely to be after the election When prices decline they are discouraged and believe that the upward movement is over for the time being.. On the other hand, some of them are particularly encouraged by the dull ness of the market at the decline and the comparative ease with which the leading stocks recover the losses whicn in recent days have been sustained largely during the early trading. 22 NEW NATIONAL BANKS IN OCTOBER.
