of the shifting and still serious aspect of
the labor controversy today's active market

ment Inst week's gain. Rail were almost
the only stocks to show heslstatlon, al
though Reading's strength and activity

feature, making the new record of 96 on
It net advance of 1 point at the very
close of the session.

per cent of the whole.

lantic, Oulf and West Indies rose to the un
precedented prlc of 72. Pacific Mall and
United Fruit averaged I points' advance at
Independent Industrials kept pace wtth
Steel, notably Lackawanna, Republic and
Sloes-Sheffield Steels, Colorado Fuel and
Oreat Northern Ore. Equipments were es
pecially strong and active ir. the final hour
at 1 to 4-polnt advances. Automobile Issues
were variably higher, except General
Motors, which yielded 6 points.
Copper, soma of the semi-war descrip
tions and Mexicans Improved 1 to 3 points,
with almost as much for fertilizer and
some miscellaneous Issues. Sears-Roebuck
featured It especial cIssm at an advance
of 4., Total Sale amounted to 866,000

Western Pacific is
Relieved of Income
Tax on Corporations
San Ftancisco, Aug. 21. Judge Will
iam C. Van Fleet of the United States
district court relieved the Western
Pacific railroad today from payment
of a federal income tax of approxi
mately $15,000 on the road's earnings
of $1,500,000 while it was in the hands
of receivers during 1915.
Judge V4n Fleet based his ruling
upon a decision of an eastern federal
court in a similar case, which held
that a corporation in receivers' hands
is not doing business as a comoration.
The Western Pacific earnings during
1915 were not sufficient to pay interest
on its obligations.
The Western Pacific emerged from
receiversnip last June under a reor
