New York. Oct. 19. Professional
speculators made active use today of
news affecting the markets and tran
sactions seemed to reflect iittle be
side jockeying for quick profits and
the covering of short sales. Ttis
was especially the case in stocks,
cotton and sterling exchange.
London dispatches reporting signs
of a compromise between the strik

revising upward the quotations of
cotton futures and exchange, sterl
ine fell 2e-in the morning, thp
resultant rate of $3.40 being the
lowest since the' first week of March,
but when substantial buying orders
entered the market late in the busi
ness period, the recovery wiped out
the loss and lett the rate slightly
higher than the day before. The
movement of exchange and of com
modities sentimentally affected by
strife develooments . were hardlv
conclusive of a permanent improve
Much Irregularity. I .
In the atock market a great deal of Ir
regularity waa disclosed all ' the way
along, the stocks showing strength being
mainly those In which siieabl short in
terest bad been built up. Thus, the sugar
share rebounded through, expectation that
tha Cuban government and bankers here
would shortly arrange to relieve the stress
brought about by over speculstiod In sugar
and unduly expanded loans. 8hlpplng
stocks sdvanced aa did a number of the
Bonds were somewhat more Irregular
than the day before. Traction bonda and

publto service commission of Pennsylvania
waa considering favorably, an application
to increaae rates from 6 to 7 cents. Thla
development waa worthy of mora than

phasis laid six months ago on the appa

Transit lines to return a profit at 6 cents.
Silver Attract Attention.
The persistent fall of the price of sliver
Is coming In for more attention and study
than is usually tlevotod to developments
In this mefhl. Interwined with tendencies
of commerce In the far east, a protracted
decline or advance of the metal has much
more meaning in these days of changing
market phenomena than la usually con
nected with speculative operations cen
tered In China or India. Today' ifall of
3o at New York arid 1 H pence at tondon,
carried the prices to the lowest level since
July 9,-1117. The -lowest quotation of that
year was 71 Vc so it Is clear that some
powerful forces have bean at Work to over
turn the strong position acquired by the
metal durlnar the last war year and the
subsequent period. India l reported a
heavy seller and the deduction to b made
la that Indian trade Is passing rapidly
through the reaction, being experienced by
Wheat declined from- 6 to cents a
bushel on the ' Chicago futures market,
which have denoted fresh depression

special credit to the growers. But out

New York Cotton.
New York, Oct 19. Recovery of more
than a cent a pound In the cotton mar
ket, was shown during the early trading
hours December contracts, which . sold
off to 17.80c yesterday, advanced to 18.96c,
owing to the unexpectedly strong showing
or Liverpool ana loss acr.-ve selling by
southern Interests. Unofficial reports from
the southwest said holding of spot .cotton
waa more determined.
Stop ordets were, uncovered on the early
advance, which carried December up to
18.960 and January to 18.76c, or 106
120 points net higher.. The demand then
tapered off, and there were reactions dur
ing the middle of the day, with December
selling bark to 18.33c, or about 68 points
from the beat
Ther was renewed covering and the
market stiffened In -the afternoon, with
December 75 points net higher.

New Tark, Qct 19. Reports that lead
ing bonkers her would aid the financial
situation In Cuba and the recent spurt In
the demand for reffned sugar seems to be
reviving confidence In the local raw sugar

Chicago, Oct. 19. -Grain prices
were on the'downgr'ade a great part
of the day. There were numerous
fharp rallies of short duration, but
the finish was well toward the. low
point, with severe losses. A decided
lack of confidence on the part of
buyers, coupled with an extremely
pessimistic feeling regarding the eco
nomic conditions in this country and
Europe, were the basis for the sell
ing. It was a case of finding a buyer
at times, regardless of cost of pro
duction or any other conditions.
Corn declined to the lowest price
in four years and finished with losses
of 2c to 4yic October leading.
Wheat lost 5J4c to 6c, oats l)aC, rye
lc to ZViC, barley 2c to 254c, pork
$1.10. Lard was Sc higher to 35c
lower and short ribs 25c lower.
Cash wheat prices were Sc to 6c
lower at Chicago, with premiums on
hard winter of 3c to 4c, No. ! hard
being 10c and No. 2 7jic to 8c.

.Strong, with prices showing a loss
of the previous day's advance. Spring
wheats were 5c to 6c lower. Total
receipts of all wheat were 14 cars,

The grain markets of th country ar
demoralised. Sentiment is very bearish.
There was big buying of March and sell

corn at the close, which mude the late
rally. Eastern shorts have been enormous
sellers the last two days and local bear
Interests have covered the sales of bids.
Corn and oata price are the lowest In
four years snd there seems to be no dis
position to buy grains, despite the sharp
decline In prices.
Depredslng factora in wheat were th
larger acceptancea of overnight bids by
elevators In the southwest, one house re
