By ELMER C. WALKER U. P. Financial Editor NEW YORK, Nov. 2.—The Stock Exchange was closed for trading again today, but brokers were on hand to straighten out transactions delayed by the tremendous markets of the past week. Curb brokers also were present and brokerage clerks ' were busy catching up with their back work. Much of this work, It was expected, would have to carry over into next week. Meanwhile additional notes of optimism were being circulated regarding the business situation. 'The tone of brokerage letters and market observers, however, was cautious. The general opinion is that the market has seen its worst break, but many warned that the recovery was too rapid and might draw out profit-taking. Typical Market Letter. A typical market letter was that of Clark Williams & Co., sent out' today: "While it is our opinion that the very drastic liquidation which has taken place during the week has improved the technical position of the market for some time to come, and brought prices of many sound securities considerably below their real values as investments," the letter said, "we would advise against purchase of stocks on rallies as, after a break so drastic as the one which has occurred this week, a period of nervousness and irregularity is to be expected and stocks .should be bought on reactions only, with purchases being confined as much as possible to stocks which represent conservative valuations. From this point of. view, we continue bullish ori the rails, oils and sound utility stocks." "Hold your good stocks and add to holdings during any periods of unsettlement," says the letter of Anders,on & Fox. "There is little hanging over the market to shake confidence except, perhaps, the pace of the present recovery. That is in our own hands. If it advances too fast, we may expect a technical situation that must be corrected." Two Bullish, Jtenis.

Mrs. Holley was It is because Mr. Norris regards the ( bathing in the Atlantic ocean and was opening Monday were two items that were considered especially bullish. The first was-the reduction to 5 per cent from 6 per cent in the New York rediscount rate, and the second a decline of more than a billion dollars in brokerage loans. Some were of the opinion that these had been discounted. The street for several days had talked of just such changes, although no one was bold enough to predict flatly that the loan total would shrink a record amount. Considerable of the dealings Thursday were inspired by expectation of the loan drop. The rediscount rate was heralded by the drop in London and hence has been spent as a market factor, according to observers. Nevertheless, the continuation of favorable business statements from all sides is generating a return of confidence on such a scale that the buying orders are pouring in from all parts of the country. Expect Some Selling. Offsetting the buying, it was said, would be selling by those who had bought last week on the break. These persons, it was argued, would be apt to play cautiously and would take their profits when opportunity offered. According to the theory expressed by Roger Babson a few days ago, bankers who bought stock to support the market would be unloading it when prices action of the> Connecticut senator as Kwolving a principle of government and not a personal affair that he is seeking to have the procedure followed by the Connecticut senator disapproved by the senate. / Senator Norris has been, reported for several months as undecided whether he should continue in public life. Recently, however, he announced his decision to seek reelection. Many Democrats as well as Republicans usually are found on the side of Mr. Norris in Nabraska, though he has always been' nominated for the senate on the Republican ticket. The Bingham case is not, of course, on a par with those involving contested seats of senators, but is concerned with the taking into the secret sessions of the 'Republican members of .the senate finance committee a representative of the Connecticut Manufacturers' association. The fact that the representative turned his government pay over to the regular secretary; of Senator Bingham, whom he displaced on the senate role, has been taken to mean that the purpose was to afford an opportunity for Senator Bingham to have an outside adviser while the committee was in session. It is well known that many senators engaged in the tariff debate have been in almost constant session with representatives of manufac'turing associations as well as with individuals directly affected by tariff rates. Tho question is whether a session of the Republican members of the finance committee in the senate committee rooms is any different from the conferences held by Republican senators with the protectionist representatives elsewhere. It if contended by some senators that it was not necessary to put anybody-on the senate pay-roll in order to attend meetings held by majority members of the senate finance committee. The fact remains, however, that watever the purpose was, a representative of an outside interest having legislation before the senate was placed on the senate pay-roll. There is no specific law violated and the whole, matter revolves around, the question of propriety and ethics as viewed by members of the senate themselves, who make their own rules. The vote on the resolution will constitute a precedent for the future. FIND WOMAN SUFFERING FROM MYSTERIOUS DRUG A few minutes before this picture was tnkcn a shot flriul by » would- be.

The conclusion, therefore, barring the unforeseen, would be that the market Monday would start off with a roaring bang on the good news developing in the period it was closed. This buying might be followed by profit- taking by many who do not wish to remain in the market over the election day holiday, and then the unloading of support stock might set in. ..Observers were of the opinion, however, that this selling would not get out of hand due to efforts of the vigilance of the banking group pledged to stabilize the market. ROBERT WESTBROOK CELEBRATES TODAY (Continued from Page 1.) ili'sired to retire some years ago. His place of bus'ness was, for many years, at the corner of Eleventh avenue and Fifteenth street where the State theatre now stands. Throughout all the years following Ihe Civil war, Colonel Westbrook was interested in veterans' organizations, taking a most active interest in the Veteran Legion. It was only natural, therefore, that he should want as his dinner guests, his old comrades. But when his daughter, Mrs. William H. McEldowney with whom he now resides and who, with her husband arranged this dinner, went to call the roil of members of the Veteran Legion, she could find but four living members, of the handful left, who could attend.

MAKE-BELIEVE" ISSUES IN NEW YORK ELECTION By 'LEMUEL IT. 1'AIITON. Stuff Correspondent. (Copyright, 1929, by Consolidated Press Association.) NEW YORK, Nov. 2.—New York come to the close of Its mayoralty campaign in an unreal phosphorescent blaze of make-believe issues, frantic tub-thumping and shadow boxing, with nothing in particular at stake, and all this to no end of purpose. Nationally, It might be just a diverting spectacle, but two new factors have appeared which gave it significance in the future position of New York state in the national line-up. One is the low rumble of official dissatisfaction with tho breakdown of Republican leadership in New York city, with rumors and whispers of national party discipline, and the other is the emergence of a body of independents, throughly at odds with the two major parties and Increasingly important and articulate. While the independents have nowhere to go just now, except to support Norman Thomas, the Socialist candidate for mayor, their defecr tlon has been sufficient to Indicate that they will have considerable weight in future city and state politics. Two powerful New York newspapers have announced their support of Thomas. With one exception, the other papers are swallowing their candidate like a dose of treacle, and, again with this exception, neither Mayor Walker nor Florella H. La. Guardla, his fuslonist opponent, ,hai a scrap of forthright support. Both candidates arc regarded as rathe something more to be .reluctantly accepted than valiantly supported. Major La Guardla started out as destroying angel but Is finishing as whirling dervish. There was a dam fuse on every bomb ho tried to ex plode. The Rothstein case, the var lous scandals in public office—an there were plenty—taxation, publt works, graft and all other polltlca Black Marias sizzled .and subsided The small, fiery and indefatlgueabl candidate started out on a whlrlwin campaign, but the whirlwind, Ilk most disturbances of its kind, wasn' going anywhere, except in circles. The amiable' and sophisticated Mayo Walker began by high-hatting Majo La Guardla, the keynote of the Tarn many campaign being complacency but in tho later stages the mayor wa smoked out by the major's bitter an all by hysterical denunciation. Miic breath, as well as paper and ink, wa wasted on such penalties as th public lasue involved in Mayor Wall' er's clothoH. The mayor's final an didnified rejoinder was that he wa willing to wear overalls if such attli would serve the interests of th sovereign people. It was the flna anti-climax of wfcat started as a cam palgn of possibly' national stgnif cance, in the light of Tammany 1 strategic Importance In state an national politics, and with the shadow of Alfred E. Smith In tho background. (By United Proas.) BERLIN, Nov. 2.—A report received ere today from authoritative sources i Bucharest said that Dowager Queen larlo of Rumania had fled from the oyal palace at Balchlk because of dis- entlon In the royal family. Rumors of strife between the owager queen and others of tha fam- y have been current for some time. '. was declared that several of the atnlly were opposed to her Inclination o interfere with the regency which resides over Rumania on behalf ot er grandson, the boy king, Mlhal I. Only yesterday, Princess Ileana, 20- ear-old daughter of the dowager uecn, setting out in her yacht, tho strava, to • visit her mother at lanchlk, narrowly escaped disaster hen tho yacht struck a reef near Vgrlgas. The yacht was pulled off by gunboat and towed back to Contanza, Its starting point. An unconfirmed report stated Marie as actually ejected from Balchlk tier an Intermediary acting on behalf f Princess Helena, mother of tho boy ing, requested the dowager queen to eavo tho place. Under the terms of the testament of he late King Ferdinand, the palace be- ongs to Young Michael, but Marie reused to leave. She hid in a small vlng of the palace but continued to ise the main entrance. Several days ago, Queen Marie was .stounded to find several pieces of her urnlturo had been moved Into the iourtyard. The situation was aggra- •ated by numerous intimations which ihe then received that her removal had lecome Imperative. After the furniture episode, the lowager sought refuge in the wing and h royal architect advised her that he vas commanded to build her a separate mtrance. The incident is another in a series }f discordant episodes which have orccd the Rumanian royal household nto tho limelight, among them being he sensational street fight between Marie's son, Prince Nicholas, and the chauffeur, John Damian. IMPROVED COTTON CROP WILL AID TIRE MAKERS WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. ?..— Establishment of two crops never before grown In the United States and with an annual value of approximately .$120,000,000 Is planned by the agriculture department on the 1,000,000 acres of desert land to be reclaimed by the building of Boulder dam on the Colorado river, the United Press learned today. Plans for production of about 800,000 bales of a new variety of cotton worth •11100,000,000 yearly, and a new type of date tree whose crop will aggregate nearly $20,000,000 have been presented to Secretary ot the Interior Wilbur by the agriculture department. Dr. A. F. Woods, chief of the agri. culture department's scientific staff, said today a preliminary survey has indicated these two crops, which will not compete with cotton or dates now grown here and will flourish in the warm, dry climate of Southern California land to be irrigated by Boulder dam water. "Through the work of Dr. T. H. Kearney of our staff," Dr. Woods explained, "we have developed a strain of cotton fully equal in quality to the Egyptian cotton ow imported for manufacture of automobile tirea. By producing his new crop on the land reclaimed as a result of Boulder dam we shall have created an entirely new Industry which will not compete any existing crop." Water will not be available below Boulder dam until its construction Is completed six or seven yearn hence.

NEW YORK, Nov. 2.—The South sea islands are not the Idyllic place the writers of romance make them out to be, Glfford Pinchot said today after his return from a 10,000 mile scientifio and pleasure cruise. But idyllic or not, they have cast their spell over the tall, lithe Pennsylvanian who was governor of that state four years and Is Icnown around the world as an authority on forestry and a foremost advocate of conservation of natural resources. "I had looked forward to this thing all my life," he told the United Press. "But I thought it was the sort of thing I would do once.and that would be the end of it. Now, however, . I want to go back again. These Islands are the most interesting and beautiful places I have ever seen." Gone Seven Month*. It was seven months ago to a day that Pinchot, his wife, their 14-year- old son, Glfford Bryce Pinchot, and his chum, C. S. Stahlnecker, and a group of three scientists sailed out of ' New York harbor on the three-masted schooner "Mary Pinchot." The craft, named for the former governor's mother, is powered by an auxiliary engine and carried a crew of five for' the long trip. They had expected to be back her* by now in the schooner, but unforeseen delays put them behind their schedule. The party therefore boarded a steamer for San Francisco at Tahiti, as Pinchot's presence is demanded in Washington. The schooner Is expected back here about Feb. 1. The party brought back' 500 bird skins for the National Museum at Washington, which provided the scientific equipment for the expedition. The museum gave Pinchot a list of the birds it wanted from the various Islands visited, and he expressed belief that every "order" had been filled. Many new sea shells were also gathered and specimens of rare fish secured. Among the fish are four specimens of a strange creature known aa a "sea bat." It is something like a large flounder and propels Itself through the water by huge fins t'aat resemble wings. The largest one of these .measured 18.J&, feet t RUSSIANS TAKE PUCHIN; CITIZENS ARE UNHARMED HARBIN, Nov. 2.— Chinese sources reported today that 2,000 soviet troops, assisted by airplanes, had captured Fuchin, on the lower reaches of the Sungari river. Citizens were reported to have fled the scene of the lighting In fear ot their lives, but the Soviets were said to have done no harm to citizens while requisitioning food. A party of foreign Journalists, who were planning to visit Fuchin, were forced to return to Harbin because of the fighting. Woolson, Lcet. Motors — Perklnson, Nophsker, Johnson, Phelps. Madias— W.
