OlEilliE'JS BT OTTABT r. WEST. "arll Street, New York. Bept 2S. ble advices from Europe Uiii "alng pronouncing the Turkish iathm more crltlcl than It bad wfl at any time, afforded a fur ther severe test tor the market. Jain there , waa no real war f a, but there waa a good deal iMenaltlvenesa to the news, es - facially in the investment market . in the foreign exchanges, beat went up and cotton came down, but In neither instance was the movement anything more than 05t of the ordinary fluctuations that might be expected in the day to day routine. I 'rurftiah government bonds were rather noticeably soft, and this, taken in connection with runner marked weakness in sterling, fur nished an indication that banking opinion abroad was viewing the latest developments at the Darda nelles with some uneasiness. So far as the decline in sterling was concerned, however, it could have been accounted for quite as readily by the seasonal pressure of com mercial drafts drawn against for eign purchases of American sta ples. So, too, while the tone of the whole bond market was weaker; in cluding Liberties and Corporate issues as well, and more reaction ary than it has been for any time. it was hard to say Just now mucn this was due to the European cri. sis and how far to the uncertainty regarding the new treasury financ ing at home.' Unquestionably the (tar that the new government loan would be offered on terms which would make the recent average of bond prices seem rather too high baa made large homers more win lne to sell. . In the stock market speculative efforts to get prices down were re sjimed at the opening and renew ed at intervals during the remain der of the day. They were helped by -a moderate amount of real 11 ' qaidatton which represented the . necessities of over-expanded indi viduals and pools that cut such a figure in the August advance. The buying in on a large scale of stocks sold short on previous days, how ever, furnished an increasing ele ment of suDDort and buying order put In to reaccumulate stocks dis tributed 6 to 10 points up, were ntore of a factor than they had been. -.Operations for the decline made ' headway In the Independent steels aca the Tobaccos, but encountered more opposition in the motors and equipment issues. , Jhe principal difference between 'Wednesday's market and today's was that on Wednesday prices crumbled away in all directions, whereas today, although there were a great many weak points, there were also a number of stocks in which the selling was quite vigor ously opposed. This suggested that certain Interests which bad taken profits in .the campaign of July and August were gradually re entering the market. The latest German bank state ment certainly gave no sign that the postponement of cash repara tions payments Is leading to any modification in the policy of note inflation. The circulation Item had another jump of 19,000,000.000 marks, which is well up to the ter rific weekly average maintained since the early summer. The sur prising thing, as it has been for the last fortnight or more, is the steadiness of the mark in the face 3f this outpour of new currency. Ma.rk exchange was quoted' today at .06, whereas the high for the last two weeks was only .07. 'Call money got up again to 5 per cent but this could hardly have been counted among the signs of uneasiness over affairs abroad. The principal declines on the stock ex Change occurred naUtrally enough In stocks which were recently most boldly exploited by the Wall Street cliques. Railway shares were quite irregular, but the group as a whole did better than it had the previous day. This showed more apprecia tion of the illogical effect of sell ing railway stocks because of the poor August reports when the fig ures on car loadings indicated su.'i n entirely different condition for the coming months, ri Standard Oils came to the front the last hour and this wtth the strong support accorded Baldwin locomotive and one or two other leaders, had a steadying effect upon the rest of the market. j New York Sagar. , f New York, Sept 28.

Other intend ing purchasers took me ground was better to await publication probably Monday of the August arnlnn statement, for then all the bad news would be out. It will of course make a very poor compari son with the same month last year, and it will also not show up well as compared with July. However, the road is recovering quickly from the effects of the strikes and the September report, it is said by those who know, will be very satisfac- tory, PITTSBURGH COAL. Comment around the street today regarding the passing of the Pitts burgh coal dividend was pretty ac rimonious, to say the least. The plea that the management was do ing the ultra-conservative thing in making stockholders help bear the losses of the coal strike was ridi culed. The company bas already got back to an operating capacity of 60 per cent, which will be in creased materially provided trans portation facilities improve. It is facing period of unusual profits. PICKING CHEAP STUI HS. While the letters sent out by the various stock observers did not hold out much hope that the de cline bad rnn its course, still some of these exoerts advised that cer tain stocks were getting down around points where they could be purchased "with Impunity." They all pointed out tnat it was nor. yei time for Indiscriminate buying, most of them holding to the view that the market as a whole could sell lower. U. S. SXELTDTG. The steady advance in the quota tions for lead and zinc with the good price for silver has brought about a distinct change in 'the earnings position of the United States Smelting, Refining & Mining company during the first eight months of 1922. Net earnings in this period was equivalent to $2.54 a share on the common, which com pares with a deficit after preferred dividends in the same period last year of $620,000. DryGoods Market BT BTUAKT P. WZSV (OoransM. ma. New York, Sept 28. Standard print cloth constructions were quiet but firm in the market for cotton cloths today but odd and narrow constructions were in ex cellent demand at slightly better prices. Sheetings recorded no startling amount of business but the tone manifested was strong. Sateens sold steadily and there was good inquiry for pajama checks. Drills, twills, and osnabergs all were strong without extraordinary change. . The volume of crepes being turned out by the silk mills is hav ing its effect on the raw silk mar ket and considerable business was in evidence today, although prices showed a tendency to soften slight ly. WOOL. Boston, Sept. 28. The wool mar ket was firm but with no large amount of business today. What trading was done was distributed well throughout the various grades however.

ZZZZZDAY COGS Bond Market , SIOIIil'T. fJTJGHES (CopjtHht. 1B12 Wall Street, New York, Sept 28. Quotations for - Liberty bonds showed improvement in the early trading today but the general tone of the bond market was distinctly weak.; This was particularly the case with railroad bonds. A large block of Southern Railway consolidated 6s sold at 98. Except for certain underlying divisional issues this is the first mortgage on the Southern Railway system and is generally regarded as a high grade bond. Its high lor the year was 100. There were Indications of selling by finan cial institutions of bonds of which this issue is a type. Apparently it was the belief that for the present there was little opportuntiyy of advances in market prices of se curities like these. The otner Southern Railway Issues, the 4s and the 6s, were also lower. High grade rails, which shared the day's decline, included Northern Pacific 5s, Great Northern 7s and Pennsyl vania 6s. A good inquiry was reported for Chicago and Alton refunding 3s Sales were made around El and the bond was comparatively steady in the face of the fact that the re ceivers are expected to defer In terest due October 1st It seemed to be the impression that the mar ket price had discounted the unfav orable conditions which brought about the receivership considering the fac,t that the issue is secured by first lien on important mileage. Foreign bonds were generally weak in response to news from abroad and the lower quotations for sterling and franc exchange. French 7s sold within two points of the low of 1922. The 8s were below par. - More significant still was the decline in United King dom 5s of 1937. City of Copen hagen 5s, Norway 8s, and Swe den 6s, among obligations of North ern European governments, were likewise offered at concessions from yesterday's closing. The one exception to the general trend was the Brazil 7s, the coffee secured sterling loan.- Here, of course, prevailing conditions in the coffee market as well as Brazilian credit are governing influences. Among the industrials United States Rubber 5s were down to 89 against a high for the year of 92. There has been a good deal of sell ing of both the common and pre ferred stocks during the past few weeks but the bond is generally re garded as one of the best secured industrials of its class. American Smelting and Refining 5s, which were weak yesterday, more than regained all their loss today. Cerro De Pasco 8s went off sharply not withstanding the fact that the stock was fairly firm. For the improvement in Liberties today there was no more explana tion than for the weakness in the two preceding days. Curb Market BY WILLIAM G. HEFFERNAN. (CopTrtSht. 1922) WTall Street New York, Sept 28. Further demand for some ol tne high priced Standard Oil shires served to check, to some extent, ; the selling movement in other sec tions of the curb exchange today. For the most part stocks held firm with offerings smaller than they had been Wednesday. The Standard Oil of New Tori was strong again and Magnolia Pe troleum was actively traded in at higher prices. Vacuum Oil also gave indications of resuming its ad vance. Standard Oil of Kansas was neglected despite the report that an increase in its capital from VI, 000,000 of stock with a par value of $100 to $6,000,000 in stock of $25 per value, may be announced at any time. The Indiana shares dur ing the greater part of the time were well supported but Ohio oil was weak. Cities Service preferred advanced somewhat in the early part of the day but lost the gain later. Gulf Oil of Pennsylvania was the fea tures of the independent oils re sponding favorably to the report that the company had brought in a new well. Carib Syndicate, Mara- caibo and New England Fuel mov- ea over a narrow range with no matenal change in prices. Macy preferred was a bit higher Other department store issues were inactive. Schulte Retail Stores continued to sag in sympathy with the weakness in Tobacco stocks on the big board. Amalgamated Leath er common and preferred were in demand again. Supporting orders were apparent in Duraut Motors, checking profes sional efforts to get the stock down. Packard preferred lost a fraction, but the common was practically unchanged. Influenced by the pass ing of the dividend on Pittsburgh Coal, the coal shares dealt in on the curb were weak. Glen Alden and Southern Coal & Iron were both offered down. ' " GV3SZ?rZSZZD. 23, 1S22 I r; VERY ERRATIC; TRADE IS SMALL (By the Consolidated Press.) Chicago, Sept 28. Wheat mar ket was a small affair in the ag gregate but price fluctuations were erratic. Liverpool futures, 2 pence higher, suggested serious political developments in the near east This resulted in commission bouse buy ing at the start and in the absence of selling pressure prices made good gain. The bulge brought out selling credited to a leading long and this encouraged locals into putting out short lines. Then a rumor that the Turkish and Brit ish were in actual combat caused shorts to cover, a rally ensuing. but around the early high point of ferings again increased. Septem ber showed strength due to efforts on the part of the shorts to cover and light offerings. Primary re ceipts continue heavy. Foreigners were good buyers of futures at Chicago, Minneapolis and Winni peg but export business at the sea board was light. Cash wheat was easier. The action of corn was much the same as in wheat and the market seemed to look to wheat for lead ership. Shorts covered at the start and commission houses bought advancing values. Locals forced a break but they covered when wheat rallied. Receipts continue of good volume. A good demand for cash corn at yesterday's prem ium was noted. Shipping demand was good but offers were restrict ed. St Louis reported 350,000 bushels sold to exporters and this cleans up their stock. v Oats were quiet and followed the trend of other grains. Bulk of the trade consisted of changing. A little pressure was noted on Sep tember. Shipping demand was fair. Provisions were lower with hogs. Packers supported October lard. September wheat closed at 1.11 to cent higher. The deferred futures closed at the bottom, to lower; Dec. at 1.04 to 1.05. May 1.08 to 1.08. Corn closed to lower; Sept 63; Dec, 59 to ; May 61. Oats were unchanged to lower: Sept. 41; Dec 47 to May 38 to. Lard closed 7 to 22c lower, and ribs unchanged. r FINANCIAL NOTES A new production record was made by the Buick Motor com pany, General Motor3 subsidiary, tor the week ending Sept 23, with an output of 4,058 cars, or an av erage of 737 cars for 5 working days.

No one eomes forward with a concrete suggestion as to what he might have done opinion has not crystallized on alternatives but the labor Deoole criticize the president for what he did while tb business men critictee him fnr what he didn't do and between the two elements the administration must expect some losses even in this realm of Republicanism.

There are 40 nationali ties in Detroit's population and the number of camouflaged saloons is on the increase. Many of th&etabs are said to have real beer on draft and ono hears tales of at least six breweries which are producing the genuine article.
