To Buy Heavily

Business With Central hurope
Expected to Expand as
Result of Reparations
The many persons who stood over
the stock exchange ticket throughout
the business day which followed the
announcement that Germany had
yielded, having accepted in full the
'demands of the allies tor the repara
tion, wondered why the stock mar
ket quotations did not respond to
this momentous news. At H super
ficial reading of the quotations it
seemed almost as though the news
iiad cau.od depression.
Had they turned to the record
made in the securities market in the
latter part of April and in the early
days of the present monwi they

many would yield in the last hours
of the time granted to her. In fact
for some time the securities market
has been discounting the favorable
effect which is sure to follcw this
enforced action upon Germany.

Foremn exchange Is a more a. u1'
reader of financial world cond.tlon, than
are the published reuoMs whli'h tell or

others. It wa. the movement of 1

foreshadowed the outbreak of

war danger wa. imminent. Ono of our
leading railway authorities .pproacned the
Pari, market hi June of that year. In
the hope that he would be able to finance
there .ccurltle. which his railroad com
pany proposed Issuing. He met with
failure. Th bankers told him that evi
dence which could be relied upon pointed
to an outbreak of war and therefore new
financing wa. Impracticable. When he
.eked what the evidence was. saying that
the statesmen of France. Great Britain
and other countries seemed to be without
apprehension, the bankers caJled his atten
tion to the movement of foreign exchange.
Upon that they rt:lie for tttelr Judgment
and they were justified by the event.
So also the movement of foreigi exchange
since March has been regarded by those
who understand this highly difficult
.(lence as pointing to the ultimate yield
tils' by Germany to the demand made by
It Will Be Felt.
Without doubt the acceptance by Ger
many of the allies' demand will be of
influence, perhaps next week, perhaps
next month, but surely before the hot
we.ither comes. In the securities market.
There were some loc,il conditions which
explained the unexpected attitude of the
securities mantel on ,vne uay louuwui,
the announcement that Germany had
yieldrd. For it is Inevitable that when
tail the details of the reparation are per

' American Worker. Affected. .
Bearing In mind the subsidies which
the German government is paying to in
dustry, aird the willingness of the German
workmen to produce to their capacity,
there la no doubt that Germany can manu
facture and export commodities in suc
cessful competition with United States
unless there comes a change In the atti
tude of organised labor and In fact some
change in the attitude of employer, to
Whan the lute Abram S. Hewitt told
the British Iron and steel manufacturers,
10 whom he spoke when they were In
convention a few years before his doatn.
that the United Stales could and would
pay wages in the lion and steel industry
far In excess of the average wages paid
to the iron and steel workers of Great
Britain and would nevertheless be able
to gain pre-eminent position in that in
dustry, tho British iron and steel leaders
said that his statement was not to be
believed because the high wages paid In
the United States would make the cost
of production so great that England would
.till command the iron and steel markets.
In reply Mr. Hewitt said that with high
wages in the United States went corre
sponding output on the part of the work
men. They produced in ecesi of tho
products of the British workmen. In the
American steel industry the most modern
apparatus was employed. Tho result was
that high wages stimulated production
nd modern methods reduced the cost of
v Reduction In, Production.
The British iron and steel industry dis
covered in a few year, that Mr. Hewitt
was justified In hi. statement. Since
then, however, many 'of the rules adopted
by the unions have secured an increa.ie in
wage, and at the same time caused a
reduction in production, lntellige.it em
ployer, do not care what wages they pav
if only they receive the equivalent. But
they say that Germany and Great Britain
will push the United States back to a
secondary place if, to use one example,
bricklayers who formerly received So per
day and laid 1.000 bricks continue to de
mand 110 per day and limit the output
made by any one man to 500 bricks,
r There are many details to bo worked
out and much important financing to be
arranged before the German reparation
becomes fully effective. But the chief
influence In maintaining American indus
try against the competition of Germany
will be furnished when labor, whatever
"s wages may be, is giving full equlva
.eut for It. wagt-s and ceases to insist
upon three men or four men doing work
which formerly was performed by ono
man. No rule, of this kind prevail in
Germany One man does a man's work
and there .are no idlers American labor
must realize that their chief concern is
riot dependent upon the mere question
wages, but upon full production up to tho
workers" capacity and with no unneces
sary division, of tho work. For unless
American labor realise, this the chancs
are great that within a year or two mil
lions of them will be without employ-

Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee Leui,cil Wire.
New York, May 16. Wall Street's
explanation for today's irregularity
in stocks and moderate reaction in
foreign exchange was the collision of
policy, between the French and
English ministries regarding the
Poles, the Germans and Silesia.
Early declines of 1 to 2'j points
in a number of stocks, chiefly in
dustrial, had the effect of bringing
purchases from other professional
sources, in response to which not
only were the ' earlier losses can
celled, but considerable net gains es
tablished for the day. As a whole,
the market reflected only the nar
rowing range of fluctuation ' of
prices, in a market which nowadays
seems to have "discounted" before
hand any actual news.
In the bond market, on the other hand,
a rather distinct downward reaction oc
curred, notably in the European national
and municipals stocks. That some Eu
ropean governments will presently enter
our market again on a substantial scale
there la no reasonable doubt. Despite the
days large financial operations, including
the payment on the $230,000,000 Burling
ton loan, the money market showed no
sign of disturbance and call money loaned
during most of the day at m per cent.
Notwithstanding the recent rapid In
crease in our gold reserve, the country',
total stock of money decreased $140,000,
000 during April and $430,200,000 since
December. Reduction of the federal re
serve note currency has been more than
double the addition to the gold supply.
The total stock of money on May 1 was
the smallest since last August, but it is
still $4,200,000 greater than on August 1,
1914: an Increase of 112 per cent. But
that comparison does not however, make
allowance for the fact that the gold stock
serves largely as a basis for outstanding
reserve notes, so that a certain duplica
tion of Item, exist, in so far as concerns
the effective money supply. The estimate

the treasury and tho federal reserve.

past four months, but Increase or $2,973,

the date when the European war began.

and Industrial News of the Day
By CHARLES D. MICHAELS.
Chicago Trlbune-OniabV Bee Leased Wire,
Chicago, May 16. Wheat, and the
corn and oats markets, were di
vorced today, the coarse grains be
ing weak and lower and wheat
strong and higher. Surroundings
were bullish on wheat and bearish
on corn and oats. Trade was not
large except in July wheat and in
the coarse grains hedging sales were
a feature. " Highest prices were made
for the coarse grains around mid
day and the lowest at the close with
com off $4C and oats ilAc, while
May wheat was strong at around the
top prices with, a net gain of 3c.
July was practically the same as
Saturday. Rye was unsettled with
September 2c higher and other
months' c higher.
Provisions were 1015c lower on
lard, 12Mc off on short ribs and 25c
lower on park.
Wheat Market Striking.
Th viheRt market was a striking one.
Cash premiums were higher, with gains
off 1 4c, the southwest leading, at tho
same time prices were 10 lower at Win
nipeg, with reports that it was comlnn
out too fast. While there was nothing
haru Ot the export demand, the ibscnce
of pressure of canh wheat In the face of
liberal arrivals and tho constant decrease
In the visible supply stood out as a strong
"May advanced from $1.43 to $1.48.
with the close within 2c of- the top. Buy
ing of May and selling of July was lib
eral at 32o difference, the widest spread
so lar. ' .
Crop news from the southwest was
more favorable, with rains over the
greater part aud moderate country ofter
ings At the same time reports f"
Illinois and Indiana were less favorable.
The feature In July was the heavy buv
ir. bv three houses with New Vork con
nections, who were tho heaviest sellers
last week and were said to be covering
by Blurts. This made an advance from
$1.141.16, with the finish 11J
from' the top. The selling wa. mainly
by local interests and It was surprising
at the amount supplied within a 2c range.
Corn Hedging Sole..
, Corn derived Its strength from wheat,
showing nearly lc over Saturday', finish,
with July at 63o and May to 60o.
Hedging .ales by country and elevator
house, supplied the offerings and made a
break of l2c on future, from the top.
Illinois and Iowa offered corn on tho
bulge, but shut off on the break. It la
only a question of time when they will
be selling at the market. It 1. believed.
Frost reports at a number of point, in
Iowa created moderate buying of oat. and
made an advance .early which met good
sale, and prices declined. Local traders
sold on th early break and covered later
on the advance, but there was not a
heavy trade in all. , , ,
Rye exporters bought 14,000 bushel, at
Chicago and paid 32o over Chicago July
c. I. f. Buffalo. A little May was wanted,
while July was bought against spread in
wheat and shorts bought September,
which gained 2c. Local stocks docreased
8,000 bushels to 28.000 bushels.
So long as there is uncertainty a. to
,v, nnMin. of the legislation against
the grain exchanges and the grain' inter
ests by the farmers, leaders who seek to
destroy the present system of marketing
until thev can got control of it, It Is not
to be expected that there will be a large
investment of any grajn as there is no
telling at what moment some nw dis
turbing factor will be sprung. -
The United States Grain Growers. Inc.,
has sent out a, call to 9,000 country ele
vators to send In $1,000 to $10,000 each.
Where they will get the money ia th-
question, as country elevators are not
supposed to have been securing much
profit the past year and the country
bank, are carrying more farmers' paper
than at this period In any other year.
Llvermore, the New York trador, was
credited with being the largest buyer of
July wheat today, while locals were the
principal sellers. The situation in May
wheat is strong, but on all bulge, above
1.460 the grain comes out freely. The
short Interest In the July has been re
duced somewhat and the trade is going
slow on the buying side except on sharp
breaks. In corn and oats there :s a de
pressed feeling and indications of a
larger movement in the near future. For
the nresent the situation does r.ot invite
a firm stand on the buying side.
Receipt, of Wheat.
Receipts of wheat at Minneapoll. were
241 cars; Duluth, 18; Winnipeg receipts,
129 cars.. ' ......
The monthly bulletin of the California
Development?, board says:
"Portervllle and Butte county .eetlon.
report bumper crops of wheat and bar
ley. North winds and frost hard on late
.own crop of Sacramento valley
LeCount wired from Hutchinson, Kan.,
"Through thi. territory crop, need rain
badly, plant is sickly, spindly and small.
Crop accounts that I gather through this
section are generally bad and the crop
will be greatly reduced this year. I
gather - that this is only a local condi
tion and in the state In general tho
wheat Is looking generally good. Threat
ening rain. It would be very beneficial."
New Tork Cotton.
New York, May 16. The European po
litical news and continuance of British
labor troubles checked buying, but did
not materially stimulate seinnp in ins
cotton market during the day', early
Business was comparatively quiet In
consequence, and after opening un
changed to 4 potnta higher, fluctuation,
were Irregular, with July ruling between
12.68c and .12.77c- compared with, li.tio
at the close of last week. i
Owing to the holiday there were no
quotations from Liverpool, and very few
orders from that quarter were reported
around the ring. The south wa. cred
ited with selling ome cotton here early,
but apot houses bought, and theie wa.
some early buying by Wall street, en
couraged by reiterated report, of Improv
ing condition, in the domestic gooa.
There was a rally on covering later.
This, followed the publication of the
weather map showing more rain than ex
pected in eastern belt sections and pros- ;
pecis ior lower, temperatures in iua
southwest. July sold up to 12 77c, or 6
points net higher, while late mouth, were
relatively firm, .bowing net advance, of
10 to 16 point., but after the spurt of
covering subsided, trading wa. very quiet
and prices sagged off again during the
miudle of the day.

Mike Tluil, fanner near Ralston,
lias been troubled considerably for
some time by the depredations of
coyotes who have visited the farhi
at various times and fed upon thoice
lambs, chickens and ducks, ',
The visits of coyotes have became
numerous and Theil and his neigh
bors offered rewards for the, cap
ture and death of the marauders,
Sentinels were posted to look for the
coyotes without avail, as the ben
roosts were nightly depleted of
Mike became desperate, as did bis
neighbors, and he and A. W. Gates,
assistant cashier of the Fackers Na
tional bank, held a conference Sat
urday. It was decided to enlist the
aid of four greyhounds and with a
number of men under the leader
ship of Gates a pursuit of coyotes
was planned for Sunday morning.
The hounds were given the. scent
and turned loose.
A mother coyote was routed and
took refuge in a creek where she
submerged her body with but 'the
tip of her nose in the air. The
