S II WAGNER'S REVIEW il Closing Stock Letter. New York, Sept. 25 Responding to a better London market, the market opened at fractional advances, but did not long hold the advantage thus gain ed. In the early dealings, American Can. was rather freely supplied on rumor that the government would pro ceed against the company under the Sherman anti-trust law. Later on, a few specialties, such as Realty and Texas Oil developed weakness and around noontime the general list gave way under a fair volume of speculative selling. The Southern Pacific state ment for August, showing another heavy decrease In the net earnings, naturally did not improve sentiment any. The market appears to us as being temporarily overbrought, and until this situation is corrected, we believe prices will tend toward irregularity. RECALLS SOCIETY TALK $2.50 13,00 Sept. 25.

Considerable talk of corn being, too high as com pared with other grains. September future promises to go out near here. Oats Stocks are so large that oats have to be bought well to show mod erate profits. From our advices we would say there is little doubt b'ii what they will come in duty free. . Bulls Uncomfortable. Chicago, Sept. 25. Europe's tempor ary independence from this country for wheat was the cause of further liquidation yesterday. Heavy expect ed receipts at Winnipeg and light call here for shipments made a bull's po sition ' ttncomfortable. Slight rallies during the session were followed by breaks, partly for the above reason and partly due to the weakness in corn. Near the end of the session a moderate closing rally was brought about, due to Vienna cablegram claim ing the renewal of hostilities among the Balkan states. The American farmers' attitude con- tin ue s to be one of indifference, as shown by primary movements. We prefer the buying Eide. Corn Talk of cheap wheat and oats caused liquidation. The feeling that corn is too high appears to be gaining. The latter may bring about further moderate decline, but we consider prices only fair in view of tremendous crop shortage. As for several days, the offerings of Canadian oats from Buffalo and other eastern points are increasing; the lat ter is the main influence with the mar ket. , Provisions News of unimportant character. We advise waiting for good break. Stocks The market was obsessed with a trinity of adversities today, but the technical position ' is, we believe, Improved. The shortage in Steel common is said to be huge. Buying on these depressions should prove profitable.

( 1 rreclpltation during the past 24 1 hours on the eastern Rocky mountain slope and in the Missouri and upper Mississippi valleys and the upper lake region has resulted from the south western low which remains orer Arl sona and southern Texas and from the northern depression which has moved from Minnesota to eastern Wisconsin. A rainfall of 2.02 inches occurred at Dodge. Kan. The crest of the north western area of high pressure and fair, cold weather is over Wyoming;, but increasing pressure and falling temperature are noted as far east ward as the upper Mississippi valley, with freezing weather in the north ern Rocky mountain states and the upper Missouri valley. High pressures and fair weather also prevail from the Atlantic coast westward to the middle and lower Mississippi valley.

The news that Mrs. Catherine Ketcham Blake, wife of Dr. Joseph A. Blake, had .served a summons and complaint on Mrs. Clar ence H. Mackay in a sjuit for $1,000,000 damages, charging the alienation of the affections of Dr. Blake, caused a general shock to New York society yesterday, although differences be tween Mr. and Mrs. Mackay and Dr. and Mrs. Blake have been known to exjst for some time. The friendship between the wife of the principal own er of one-of the two great telegraph systems of this country and many ca ble lines and Dr. Blake has for more than - year been the subject of gossip. SEEK TO AVERT SITT. For nearly a year lawyers and friends have ""tried to persuade Mrs. Blake to make a settlement providing for her interests and those of her two sons, who are students at Yale, out side of court One of her counsel, said by her friends to have been Williams Travers Jerome, was peremptorily dis missed by her because of his insis tence that a public scandal would in jure the Blake children and the Mac kay children in a degree far greater than any benefit to be derived from a lawsuit. Clarence Mackay, with his three children, ranging in age from 14 to 6 years, went abroad in the middle of June, sailing under an assumed name on the first trip of the Imperator from thU port. They are now in Scotland Mrs. Mackay's first news of the sailing of her husband and children came from a reporter a few hours after the Imperator sailed.. COIBT PAPERS SEIRVEn. Mrs. Mackay, soon after her husband and the children went abroad, took a house at Portland, Me., and has spent tbe last six months there. The papers in the suit for 11,000,000 brought by Mrs. Blake were served on her here through her attorney, former Assistant District Attorney Arthur C. Train, with whom Henry W. Taft, brother of the former president is now associat ed In her interest Dr. Blake, who resigned from the staff of the Presbyterian Hospital last June, wljen it seemed likely that the differences between himself and h's wife on account of Mrs. Mackay were to become public property, has con tinued his practice in this city. His reputation among members of his pro fession is high. RECALLS MVSTEIUOrS MUS& From nurses at the Nassau hospital at Mineola, near the country home of the Mackays, and at the Presbyterian hrspital have come stories of the pres ence at Dr. Blake's most interesting operations of a strikingly handsome woman dressed in a nurse's uniform, whose bearing and' conduct seemed to indicate that she was not a nurse at all. It was said in the hospitals that the "nurse" was Mrs. Mackay. The transfer of all Mrs. Mackay's property rights in the $6,000,000 estate at Roslyn to a trusteeship for Mr. Mackay and their son last February was believed to be partly explained yesterday by the threat of Mrs. Blake to sue Mrs. Mackay. For MEN and WOMEN Regular $4 & $3.50 Quality THINK THIS OVER If I am willing to sell you the same quality Shoes you have always had to pay $4 and $3.50 for, and sell them to you for $2.50 and $3 a pa'r, is there any good reason why you should not SAVE that extra dollar. AND REMEMBER THIS The Shoes which I sell at $2.50 and $3 are honest $4 and $3.50 values and are sold at $4 and $3.50 by every other store in Davenport It's my low rent low expenses and large volume of business which makes it possible .for me to sell them at $2.50 and $3.

Washington, D. C, Sept. 25. Rep resentative James T. McDermott of Chicago will be allowed to retain his seat in the house of representatives, but he will be severely censured by The . Garrett lobby investigating com mittee, which soon wi'.l make its re port Representative Garrett of Tennes see, chairman of the committee, is writing his conclusion, which he will present to the other members as soon as he completes the paper. The two chief matters which came before the house committee were the activity of the National Association of Manufacturers In his effort to elect favorable candidates and to de feat unfavorable ones and to control legislation before the house and the' allegation that Representative McDer mott was the tool of interests having legislation before congress. The Garrett report probably will find a true bill against the National Association of Manufacturers. Also it will suggest that' Mr. McDermott did many things unbecoming a member and not strictly accorfliag to the ethics of a congressman,' but it will not rec ommend that he be unseated. Besides being accused of having ac cepted money from M. M. Mulhall, leg islative agent of the National Associa tlon of Manufacturers, McDermott ad mitted receiving money from the liquor interests as a loan at the time liquor legislation was before the house, and from various pawnbrokers at the time a loan shark bill was uemg consiaerea. .no notes were given for these loans and no Interest was demanded.
