WALL STREET IS
Sankers Make Large Profits
From Commissions On
New York, Oct. 2. Wall street to
day is literally a street of gold.
In the past week more t'ann 7,000,000
shares have changed hands, meaning
that brokers commissions amount aloue
to more than l.'oO.OOO.
Profits of outside traders and pro
fessional speculators are impossible to
estimate but they probably rival any
thing the street knew in its palmiest
Talk of 2,000,000 share days is heard
in the wake of the heavy trading.
Houses which recently worried about
making just their expenses are now
rolling in wealth.
The craze for the "war babies,"
"cats and dogs," standard issues, in
fact everything and anything in tho
way of a slock gamble is swamping
the" brokers. People who never before
saw a broker or his office are now
regular visitors at the headquarters of
the Wall street houses. ,
Evidences of the new ern of pros
perity are seen in the return of the
"harpies" old timers in the street,
who, having suffered reverses, now live
on the bounty of the street. itearau

MADE BY ALLIES
By William Philip Slmnis.
Paris, Oct. 2. Sharp and sudden
strokes, whereby tho allies are steadily
improving their positions in the Artois
and Champagne, have temporarily re
placed the battering tactics which
marked the beginning of their giant of
fensive along the western front.
But another smash of terrific force
will not be long postponed.
Artillery battles are increasing in in
tensity, giving indication that the al
lies are ripping away obstructions in
preparation for an infantry drive of
the first magnitude.
French losses are extremely light
considering the nature of tho fighting,
I am told that officers expected to lose
one third of their men, but as a matter
of fact, only 11 per cent has suffered.
This comparatively small loss is due to
the thorough artillery preparation
which marked the days liefore the of
fensive started, though in addition the
new steel helmets have prevented the
ordinary slight head wounds.
A wounded corporal today told me
that at many places, the French bom
bardment leveled the (K-rmau trenches
and buried their occupants.

(Written for the United Press.)
Now York, Oct. 2. The second week
of the Anglo-French offensive in the
west begins with both sides seeking a
respite. The early intensity of tho al

in Flanders a year ago.
The trench warfare has improved, and

Germans seized Ostcnd aud attempted
