Reduced to $25 Share.
NEW YORK, Oct. 6. Directors of

of 200 per cent, increasing the capi
tal stock from $75,000,000 to $225,
000,000 and reducing the par value

A special meeting of stockholders
has been, called for November 3 to

A notice sent to stockholders sets
forth that no change in the capital
has taken place since the declara
tion of a 400 per cent stock dividend
in 1913 and that even that increase
left assets still considerably in ex

WHEAT SELLS ABROAD
UNDER PIES HERE
Recent Business Unprofita
ble for Exporters.
VALUES ARE OUT OF LINE
Local Market Slower, With All
Bids Down 1 Cent; Coarse
Grains Firm Cp.
Wheat bids were 1 cent lower on all
grades and all deliveries at the Mer
chants' . Exchange yesterday, reflecting
th weaker feeling in the market. The
demand waa leas than it has been and
the volume of business was small.
The latest sales as cabled from abroad
of full and part cargoes show lossea to
shippers here In comparison with ruling
market prices at this end. A cargo that
was cleared from Portland on September
ia was sold at equal to $1.05 here and
another cargo of early October loading
bicught $1.05. A parcel of white wheat
v.as sold at Liverpool on September 29
at $1.08 spot and another parcel sold on
September 28 brought $1.05 net.
In view of the unprofitable relation
between the prices that can be realized
abroad and what wheat is bringing on
tbe market here, there is no incentive to
push new business.
A number of inquiries have been re
ceived from the orient for flour and some
sales have been made, but the volume
of actual business is small In compari
son with the inquiries, as the prices gen
erally Indicated are too low.
The coarse grain market was firmer
and lighter. All grades of eastern oats
advanced B0 cents and barley was B0c$l
higher. Corn bids were 25 50c higher.
The Chicago wire to the Gray -Rose n
baum Grain company follows:
"Wheat reaction due simply to largely
increased selling on profit taking. Pri
mary receipts moderate, smaller than
last week and last year. Milling demand
good. Export demand nearby shipment.
but difficult account transportation con
ditions. Evidence continued accumulation
on breaks by strong interests. Believe
higher prices in prospect."
At Liverpool, December wheat closed
d higher at 9s 7d, March d higher
at 9s 5d and May d lower at 9s 2d.
Broomhall's cable from Liverpool said:
'There is a firm tone in wheat in
the United Kingdom, owing to the
scarcity of shippers' offers. Corn situa
tion remains firm with offerings of
both American and Plate sorts in nearby

Condition Revealed by At
tempt to Accept Profits.
CHICAGO PRICES DROP
Lack of Aggressive Purchasing
- Is Feature; Liverpool Spot
and Futures Higher.
BY CHARLES D. MICHAELS.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
CHICAGO, Oct. 6. An overbought
condition was disclosed in the grain
markets when local and commission
houses tried to accept profits. Whils
Liverpool spot wheat and futures were
.higher and the political news was of a
more warlike character, local prices de
ciined readily. Lack of aggressive buy
ing was the feature. Wheat closed
c lower, corn off 3c and rye S
Tic, while oats finished H i hc higher.
Opening prices on wheat here were as
much as 1c higher, December leading.
Further early buying of December and
selling of May was in e vine nee, nar
rowing the difference to lfcc at one
time. The finish, however, found the
nearby delivery 2c under the May, com
pared with ISc the previous day.
Scarlty of spot wheat abroad con
tinues. Liverpool was up 2 3c, while
futures were 4 d higher on the nearby
months. Liberal purchases to arrive
in the Canadian northwest had a de
pressing effect on Winnipeg. That fin
ished fac to c lower, although ex
porters were good buyers. Some rain
was reported during the day in Illinois
and Iowa. That will relieve the droughty
condition. Export demand was slow, ex
cept from shorts. No. 2 red winter on
track sold at 10c over December, gain
ing for the day.
Corn showed a heavy undertone from
the start. ACho time were prices above
the finish of the previous day. The fin
ish was on a strong rally from the in
side figures. There was some reinstat
ing ot lines, sold out by local traders
early. Cash demand continues fair with
sales of 150,000 bushels to exporters.
Premiums on spot were 4 fcc. lower,
receipts, 336 cars. No change of im
portance was noted in the car shortage
m m m
Oats had range of to Sc. There
was considerable early selling of Decem
ber and buying of May. That trading
widened the difference to lc. The fin
ish was lc under. Weakness in cash
premiums, which were off He, had s
depressing effect on the Decmber. Do
mestic cash demand showed improve
ment with sales of 370,000 bushels and
exporters took 70,000 bushels. Receipts
Weakness in wheat was the main de
pressing influence in rye. There was
fair buying here against sales in Winni
peg by spreaders. A sale of 200,000
bushels was made here to exporters.
No. 2 on track -sold at llfcc more than
December. The two northwestern mar
kets received 161 cars.
The grain trade tonight was bearish on
wheat and generally bullish on corn and
oats. All recognized the fact that grains
are largely a transportation problem.
A good many local traders, who bought
corn freely on Thursday, and were bull
ish at heart "sold out today. They said
the advance had driven In the short in
terest and new buying support was not
strong enough to keep up values. They
"Canadian farmers are selling an aver
age of 4.000.000 bushels of wheat daily.
Interior elevators there are shipping an
average of 2,000,000 bushels." said S. C.
Harris of Crossroy and Saunders.
A large number of the local operators
unloaded their wheat early, saying there
was no outside support. Large buying
by large commission houses, and covering
by several big local shorts, late in the
day made the closing rally.
Winter wheat seeding has been on s
dry seed bed and is in good condition to
germinate with good rains which were
reported in Illinois and Indiana today.
The Chicago grain letter received yes
terday by the Overbeck & Cooke com
pany of Portland follows:
Wheat Started strong and higher on
the advance In Liverpool and warlike
news from Constantinople, but met too
much selling by longs and went to a
discount under last night's final figures.
Sentiment locally was rather bearish due
more to the failure of outside support to
come into the market than to any Im
portant change in conditions. There
was a good milling demand for cash
whej.t here and in outside markets and I
spot prices generally were higher. The I
seaboard reported a good demand for I
wheat for prompt shipment, but busi
ness restricted by the indisposition or
exports to make t offerings.
from the characterf the news coming
from abroad there Is considerable anxi
ety over supplies and under such condi
tions prices are not apt to decline.
Corn Liquidation came into the mar
ket early in the session and proved
more than could be digested, except at
price concessions, further selling was
influenced later in the day by an easier
turn In the cash market where premiums
were quoted H to cent lower. Ship.
pers reported the export demand, which
has been exceptionally good of late, less
in evidence toda. Country offerings to
arrive were light and cash handlers gen
erally were of the' opinion thst the
movement from the interior la nearing
an end. We believe., today's setback is
simply a. natural reaction in a bull mar
ket, such as should be taken advantage
of to make purchases.
Oats Followed, the action of other
grains with liquidation in December a
.At,,H Dni-ainlu ..r, email but the
demand was less urgent man ot late,
were reduced Vi to 4 m.i
We doubt that the futures will decline
much if any from present levels, unless
the cash market develops greater weak
ness than now apparent.
Rye Futures were dull and draggy
with an absence of Important speculative
interest and continued hedging by the
northwest. Cash rye was relatively
steady at half cent over December for
No. 2 on track. t
Leading futures ranged as follows:
