against Saturday's close of 3.60 1-2. a
gain of about 16 cents over the low
point of the last fortnight.
In the stock market, the move
ment was irregular on light trading
and net changes were unimportant.
The usual upturn in sterling was
not associated with any specific de
velopments of the day. Before the
opening the cables brought news of
an advauce of 3 cents in London and
with the beginning of trading here the
rise was carried forward rapidly
closing around the highest of the day.
Short covering was regarded as the
chief factor in the movement. Specu
lative selling in anticipation of such
an increase apparently was over-extended
and shorts were caught in an
Other foreign exchange rates were
strong In sympathy with sterling, ad
vancing from 1 to 5 points.
Stock market quotations eased off
in the forenoon with oils, equipments,
coppers, steels and rubbers leading In
the recession. Sugars were cspecially
susceptible to pressure, owing per
haps to uncertainty us to the action
to be taken this week on the Amer
ican Sugar dividend, l.ate in the day
the market stiffened, under the influ
ence of sterling's sustained buoy
ancy and buying of ruils. Sales am
ounted to 2S0.000 shares.
Notwithstanding the large increase
in surplus' reserves shown in last
week's bank statement, there was no
relaxation of money rates. Call funds
ruled at 6 per cent.
Reactionary tendencies were evi

prospective falling off In the domes
tic movement from rural sources had
a bullish effect on the wheat market
yesterday. Prices closed firm. 2 to
2 3-4 cents net higher, .with Septem
ber $1.22 1.22 1-4 and December.
$1.25 'ci 1.25 1-4. Corn gained 5-8 to
TSffllc; and oats 1-8 to l-4i5-Sc. In
provisions the outcome varied from
22 cents decline to 5 cents advance.
Germany and Austria were reported
as having bought 500,000 bushels or
more of wheat and it was said other
European countries were also pur
chasing, helped by a sharp advance in
sterling exchange. Besides gossip was
current that Germany had obtained
$10,000,000 credit in New York and
the United States crop report tomor
row would prove bullish. On the
other hand an increase of nearly 10,
000,000 bushels in the visible supply
total had a depressing influence
which was short lived as the grain
has already been hedged. The mar
ket closed at about the top figures of
Corn and oats averaged higher, ow
