NEW YORK, May 20. (A. P.)
Business on the stock exchange today
was listless with a reactionary trend.
The forthcoming reduction of wages
by the labor board seemed to have
lost Its force as a bullish factor.
Postponement of dividend declara
tion by the Hocking Valley railway di
rectors indicated that the question of
reduced or suspended disbursements
does not wholly apply to Industrial or
Steels, equipments, motors, sugars
and utilities comprised the bulk of the
other offerings at gross recessions of
one to three -points. Sporadic short
covering in the cheaper oils, tobaccos
and International Paper Imparted a
measure of steadiness to the final
dealings. Sales 4 50,000 shares.
Call loans held firm af seven per
cent. International remittances re
flected the more hopeful feeling In
connection with the Silesian situation.
Demand sterling roBe a fraction over
14 and all principal continental rates
strengthened, notably bills on Paris
Liberty bonds were fractionally low
er and tractions also eased, but rails
and industrials were mixed. Among
foreign issues Mexicans again reacted
sharply, with irregular advances and
declines among the various European,
flotations. Total sales, par value.
The exchange will be closed Satur
day preceding Memorial day.

CHICAGO, ' May 20. (A. vS
Wheat advanced sharply yesterday,
upsetting predictions that the market
would undergo a big break. Passage
of an anti-pit bill through one branch
of the Illinois legislature failed to
have much influence on values, helng
far outweighed by crop damage re
ports. The market closed strong, 1 1-4
to 4 1-2 net higher, with May 1,62 to
1.53 and July 1.19 3-4 to 1.20. Corn
finished 1-4 to 1 1-8 down, oats off 1-2
to 5-8 and provisions at gains of 2 1-2
It took only a minute to demon
strate that there was to be no unusual
.setback in wheat. The extreme de
cline of 2 1-2 cents had scarcely been
reached before the market began to
swing upward with a rush. Most
traders took the position that the anti-pit
bill was still a long way from
enactment and had been chiefly effec
tive for the time being as affording a
a good opportunity to buy. Knowl
edge that field scouts were sending In
bullish reports from the southwest
added greatly to the courage of buy
ers, although word of rains'' In Kansas
led at one time to a transient decline.
Houses wits seaboard connections
bought freely and the market closed at
almost the day's top.
Favorable weather and news that
corn planting showed rapid progress
kept price for corn and oats tending
downward most of the session:
Provisions were firm In line with
Fxtenslon of Rural
Cmllts Favored fur Farmers
WASHINGTON, May 20. (A. P.)
More liberal rural credits and exten
sion of the six months re-discount
limit by federal reserve banks on ag
ricultural paper was favored yesterday
b- Secretary Mellon as a means of
relief for farmers. The re-discount
time limit for livestock paper should
go as high as two years, he thought,
and be extended to nine months on
Extension of the maturities on agri
cultural paper would require legisla
tion, he added, and such measures
were before congress.
Overstocked, Says Hoover
WASHINGTON. May 20. (A. P.)
Overstocked world markets were said
by Secretary Hoover yesterday to be
largely responsible for the slump In
American exports. Conditions are im
proving somewhat, however, he added
and with the movement of the stocks
of commodities on hand In the foreign
markets, American exports could be
expected to pick up again.
