from t, ty to 5 per cent.
I twiom of olher reserve hanks,
which umially tako their cue from this
centi-r, ore likely It was generally be
I eved, to consider lower rediscount
imd Interest rates. The money strain
nt western and southern points has
eased iierveptlblya higher prices for
cotton having released largo sums long
tied up In froren credits.
There was another active market In
bonds, with liherty Issues as the princi
pal feature. Thai group, however, as
well as most other Important domestic

Irregular. Total sales, par value, $16,- !
The same Influences which facilitat
ed the recent setback In the stock mar
ket were operative again today. To
the withdrawal of bullish support and
absence of public participation was
distinct tightening of money weaken at the outset on the lower
range of quotations furnished by Lou
don, but rallied later. The few ex
Ceptlona included Italian, Spanish and
Koversing its usual course, money
hardened with the progress of the ses
sion. An opening rate of 4 1-2 per
Cent gave way to 5 per cent at noon
and 5 4 per cent tn the final dealings.
This was ascribed largely to the heavy
demands created by another upward
surge in cotton prices.
The most significant event, however,
reduction of rediscounts by the local
federal reserve bank from & to 5 per
cent, did not become known until aft
er the colse of business.

Heavy selling by houses with east
ern connections took place in wheat,
and there was a paucity of buying or
ders, especially late in thes season.
Bears contended that recent huge ex
ports from tho United States have fur
nished Europe with a greater supply
than can be readily managed, and this
view received special notice in relation
ton an official report that France has
a surplus of 28, 00.0.000 bushels over
bread and seed requirements. Mean
while, new export business appeared to
be lacking, and talk of better demand
for flour at Minneapolis and In the
southwest failed to bring about any
important upturn. Some observers
ascribed a large share of today's sell
ing to cotton traders who were said
to have let go their wheat holdings and
to have put out short lines Instead,
December and May deliveries of
corn reached a new low price record
for the season. Predictions were cur
rent that the government October re
port would show a larger crop than
was looked for heretofore. Oats de
clined in sympathy.
Provisions averaged lower with
gralngrain, despite temporary strength
borrowed from hogs and cotton.
