Congressman Henry, says his committee will pay no
attention to the charges made by Lawson as to leaks in
the departments of news that is of benefit to the stock
gamblers. Mr. Lawson says he can prove what he says,
and Senator Stone agrees with Lawson to the extent of
admitting a leak. Under the circumstances Congressman
Henry will do well to investigate the charges. If there is
a private snap in the offices of the departments otit of
which the employes draw pay from the gamblers, and by
which the latter raid the markets, it should be exposed

Those who read the newspapers although they are
told some of the troubles of publishers owing to the soar
ing news paper prices, have but a faint idea of what pub
lishers are up against. Paper that a couple of years ago
was selling at about $1.60 the hundred is now held at
$5.50 or even higher. The smaller papers feel it badly
enough, but with the big ones it means to some, bank
ruptcy. The worst feature of it is that it is the independ
ent newspapers that can be least spared that will go
under. Those having he backing of the trusts or of cer
tain magnates, can stand the drain, for their losses are
nothing to the gains those backing them are making as
a result of war prices.

market operations. The public is hold
ing aloof from the stock market until
it cau be determined with some degree
of certainty whether tlie world is teud
ing toward peace or a continuance of
the war.
President Wilson seems determined to
keep up his efforts for peace. That is
the way the matter stands, while the
financial district, amuses itself with
leading the reports of the stock scandal
in Washington.
The market in stocks remains in the
hands of the professional element. The
openiug today was weak, followed by a
movement of great irregularity.
After the afternoon session advanced
further losses were recorded, mainly in
the industrial list. United States steel
sold down nearly to 109 after apening
at 111 to 110 1-2 against a closing yes
terday at 112. Similar losses were suf
fazed by the other steel and copper
shares. The equipment issues and the
munitions specialties yielded two to business transacted
five points.
There was a good deal of backing and

, near the level of the previous closing.

Amsterdam, Jan. 5. Great
significance was attached td
passage by Austro-German cen
sors today of a quotation from
the Vienna newspaper Arbiter
ZeituuR. asking the government
to "discover if the entente
would be ready to negotiate
peace after an evacuation by
Teutonic troops in the west, and
if so. that the evacuation be
made immediately.
The newspaper asserts the en
tente's reply "is a peace note
if rightly understood."'
Significance attached to this
dispatch arises from the fact
that British sources have all
along maintained if Germany
was in earnest about peace she
should evacuate Belgium and'
that part of France she now oc
cupies as a preliminary to peace
Wheat Prices Drop

was lower today, the renewal of peace
talk overcoming the bull influence of
the seaboard buying for export.
May wheat opened down half and
later lost 2 1-2 to $1.8H4- July open
ed up half, but at noon had lost 2 1-8,
standing at $1.4S 3-8.
Corn also was weak, after a firmer
opening, which was based on the ac
tion of the British government taking
i over all corn stores at yesterday 's
prices. .May opened up t-n ana sub
sequently reacted 7-8 to 97 5-8. July
opened up quarter and lost 8-8 going
to 90 1-2.
Oats were very narrow, but fell with
wheat. Slay opened up quarter, then
lost 1 to 56 H-4. July opened up Vi
and lost 1 point to f3 3-4.

Another German raider is reported on the Atlantic,
and a couple of big ships as well as several smaller ones
are overdue, it is claimed on account of this new sea
rover. The now raider is described as being about 450
feet long, 45 foot beam with a single funnel and two large
masts. From this it is evident someone has seen her or
thought they did. At the same time it should be remem
bered that English shipping cii-cles are easily frightened
and it is possible this raider has no more tangibility than
had the much exploited "Bremen."

In England the impression is said to be general that
the Germans were forced to make an offer of peace
owing to scarcity of food and the people's unwillingness
to longer bear the hardships forced on them by the war.
It may be possible this estimate is all wrong, and in that
case the second offer to negotiate peace terms may meet
with a more favorable reception.
