But ApHation ConcernJnfr Le ^Nlation Makes Future Too Uncertain for Inrestors. (Si>ecial Correspondence). New York, Dec. 2.—Owing to the Intervention of Thanksgiving day and the approaching opening of Congress December 4 the tendency of the stock market was reversed and considerable realizing of profits ensued. A tenii>o- rary flurry in money incidental to the end of the month further aided the decline. In forming opinions on the slock market it is important to first get a line upon what Congress is likely to do during the coming session. The main political issues it is already known, will be first the trusts and wcond the tarilf. with currency leg-| illation a remote third. President Taft is expected to devote his attention Chiefly to the trust problem. Since his ideas upon this problem fU well as the tariff are already well known and are not likely to change, the chief interest will fail upon the attitude of'^CpngresB. At present the trust issue is much confused by some -desire to amend or repeal the Sherman law. Its repeal is an Idle drean^t. Its amendment, liowever, may be possible, though for reasons already explained in these advices not entirely d<^8irable. In all probabilfty strong efforts will bft made to pass a Federal Incorporation Lav. TU» proposal has many advantages, and would go a long way toward checking the abuse arising from Ioo<e and conflicting State LawF. The chief objections to a Federal Incorporation law are pure ly political, inasmuch as It would lead to a further centralization of power at Washington; a tendency which has been growing almost too rapidly during the past^few years. Until the settlement of the trust problem is in sight, business will hes itate more or less because the leaders in big business can have no settled idea upon what basis th«Ir operations can be conducted. The tariff also will be an elemen otf uncertainty yet no very serious or important changes are to be anticipated, except in instances of absolutely unnecessary and extreme protection. The Presidential campaign is of course, a. distracting element, but when the political atmosphere becomes clearer, its importance will be on the wan»b ko far as Its effects upon ^.usinesa are concerned. . So much for politics which are at present the chief hiadnmce to business recovery. Wej^'it not for the noisy political agitator commerce and industry in the United States would Quickly return to the normaL In oth- .er respects the business situation shows alow but steady Improvement. The iron trade is still • leading the way and November proved the most active montb of the year for that industry. ' We are now fippr(}aching midwinter when mncli structural work has to be abandoned, so it should • cause no disappointmeiit If there follows some sUg^fcessation of activity in this field during the next two or three months. NerertheleM conditiona in the iron trade are mncb more satisfactory, and some of the most Important maniifactarerB hare (ar ^sd^ openljT d««I (kr «4 9\9X * tnm for the better has neen reached. Prices are still low for many steel products, and the fact that there is still a large idle capacity prevents any advance. This however does not detract from the fact that conditions have improved. Over a million and a halt tons of finished products were sold in November; upwards of SOO.OOO tons of this amount going to the railroads, which are always the earliest and shrewdest buyers at such times. There is also continued improvement in the textile trades and while the volume of business Is not up to the normal there is a decidedly more confident undertone. In the West business Is fair in volume and further increase of confidence is reported by bankers in that section. In the South, too, conditions are fairly satisfactory. The volume of traffic on the railroads Is well sustained, and although the price of cotton is comparatively low, the size of the crop Insures a large monetary return to the farmers, not to speak of a good tonnage to the railroads. In some lines of business there Is a disposition to quietness Incidental to the ai>- proach 6t January ,1 and the oncoming winter, but this tendency Is not more marked than usual at this season. In spite of present weakness and profit taking Wall Street breathes easier and Is showing a more confident feeling. There is a slightly better investment demand for some securities, not only In New York but at other financial centers. Honda have been In fair inquiry and considerablr> buslnesa has been done in municipal Isjraes. Monetary conditions are satisfactory in spite of the low, bank reserves. The latter causes no uneasiness because funds will soon begin to return from the west, and our inter national credit la SBcb tbat'W9 can readily draw from nbrond In case of necessity. Our favorable balance of trade has much strengthened our credit abroad, end It niust be remembered that much of the hundred ratl- lions loaned to Germany during Hie Moroccan* crisis is yet to our credit .These two accounts have been somewhat reduced by foreign sales of American stocks, but as conditions hero become more satisfactory It is quite certain that Europe will n>purchase shares recently sold. Earl Gray's speech on Monday last would seem to have thoroughly cleared up the Mqroccan situation, and paved the way for a better understanding b<r tween England and Germany. While the foreign situation Is sUll full- df interesting possibilities, It is certainly more asanrjng than at any time within the last four months. New security issues thus far this year are estimated at $1,600,000,000 against $1,400,000,000 a year ago. This somewhat sur^sing increase coVI>- Icd with the strain which the market ras endured ftgt thp past twelve months shows that'the situation Is Bounder than. Is generally recbgni; ed. Technically and intrl^aiaally the ser cnrlty market la la a fairly satiatiac- tory condition. The chief obstacleias we have already said, is politics. For this reason developments at W!aah- Ington during the-coming week yftii have peculiar significance. In thi» connection the forthcoming report of the Hadley Railroad Commission wIU be tin'alted with keen interest; Ilke^ wise the report of the tariff iKM^rd and that of the Senate Trust Inquiry Committee. These may have an l|n- portant effect upon the stock roarkjet HENRY CLBWSJ Mr. and Mrs. Wilson of Topeka, ate" in the city viatUng Miss HerdTOtin. of 706 East Jeckson avenue,. - j —Look for the Big'— "Doomed Sale 99 5IGN FINE WEXTHER BEARS WHEAT PRICE DECLINES UNDER REPORTS OF UOOD CROPS I.\ AKtlEATINE, CSiltle and itogrs Are Steady an Incltnutlon fo Drop a Little.

The annual memorial services of. the Elks lodge, conducted at the lodge rooms at 3 o'clock yesterday after-:; noon, certainly maintained the very high standard of these services es-i • tablishcd In the past. There was a' fair-sized audience which li.^tened' with close attention to the program of* music, ritualistic work and the me- ' morial address. The vocal numbers' were all excellent, as were the or-1. chestral selections and the violin so-lo, all in keeping with the solemn oc- . casion. The lodge members followed, the officers through the ritualisticV "Lodge of Sorrow" and all listened, with deep interest to the thoughtful address by Mr. Scott. First touching upon the universal hope of the iiqmortallty of the soul, he omitted any harrowing allusions to the departed brothers who need nothing from the living but who are needed by; the living, the example of their ' lives being helpful to those who. re- v main here. From this thought to the cardinal principles of the lodge. Friendship and Charity, was a logical step, and ihe speaker portrayed elo- . quently the noble part that friendship • has In our lives. Mrs. Gideon Blantz. of Colorado Springs. Is here visiting her sister.

The; pa? tient is likely to remain in charge of ' the public for- a long time and it is thought that a transfer to a state Hos- . pital may have the dual advantiilgd of ' affording, better care and at t^« eame ' time permitting the case to be.stud-^ led by the experts, '
