Wall Street, New York, July 2.— Morn support has come Into tho market from banking and other sources during the past -week, with the result that sumo improvement in the general tone and attitude has taken place. More confident^ as to the future ol prices exists and there la a disposition on tho part of bankers to hold to the view that nothing more In tho way ot emlmrmsfitnenta is now to be expected, while values ere resarileil as being. In the case of most stockti, reasonably low. This sltualion has (enoVd to relieve the fears thut had been felt by somo who thought that conditions might get out of hand, duo to the heavy liquidation which has been under way. Qhcapnc8 's of securities. Whatever may have been the causes of the downward movement there can be little doubt (hat many of tho principal securities now being traded In are low In price, if not actual bargains, to put away until the market recovers Its equilibrium. This might not he true if the dividend situation were not nu good as it is. Keports from practically a'l industries unite >n revealing an Improved earnings ou^j, look, with every reason to expect maintenance o[ dividends or advances in them. Thero is a general consensus ot opinion that business conditions are thoroughly sound and that such -check ns has been given to commodity prices has been of a nature to stabil­ ise and confirm values rather than to Impair them. Acliv« summer and autumn business with good crop yields, such aa aro now promised, must eventually put stocks back to quotations which will more truly represent their real value. Reassurance From the President, President Harding during his Western Journey has made several addresses which should be full of reassurance to those who have feared a disposition on the part of tho Government to hamper business. He has taken particularly strong gTOund against unfriendly attacks on the railroads and has urged a constructive transportation policy. At the same time, he has vigorously opposed coal mine nationalization as well as other radical Bchomen, and has spoken plainly In behalf .o»' the reduction of taxation. He is evidently disposed to take a vigorous position in the discussions of the coming- autumn and winter in opposition to the extreme plans that have been proposed by somo of the Congressional radicals. This should reassuro many of those who have been inclined to fear that, something hazardous might make Its appearance at next winter's Fessfon of Congress. With tho "President opposed to such suggestions it would bo more than difficult to obtain enough votes to bring about their enactment into law, even if they should be allowed to reach the point of being balloted upon. Thei'o la a decided tone for the better in general sentiment -with regard to legislative prospects, many believing that a turning point has been reached. As to this the outcome of the discussions regarding the proposed coal mining strike is likely to huve a very considerable efftct upon opinions. It will be soma time before positive assurance, of an accommodation -with the miners can bo arrived at. In the meantime some uncertainty is naturally felt by [Oino observers of Lite situation. Outside of this question the absence of a considerable number ot important officials from Washington seems to give assurance of an unusually quiet and unbroken period so far as governmental relation to business is concerned, this period being likely to last over the next feu- months, pending thye time that the President returns to Washington and discussion of economic issues is resumed. Agricultural Outlook. An excellent agricultural outlook seems to he revealed as reliable reports concerning crop conditions and 'harvesting- come to utaiid. The yield will probably not he a record -breaking one, but It will be very satisfactory Judg-lng from present prospects, and most of the principal crops seem likely to bring good prices. This should Insure a ennit7iu »t!on or the large traffic over tbo railroads, which already up to high point for the havo sprung! up betwoon this country and Croat Britain. Meantime tho foreign trade of tho TJnited States, In common with that of tho rotK of the •world, necossarlly feels somo effoct of tbo unfavorable conditions produced by France's policy In tho Ruhr and tlerrnnny's manifest Intention to contlntto her "passive resistance" to the very last. To this cause perhaps moro than any other may be nscrlbutl tho relative inactivity ot foreign demand for our copper and some other staple products, which havo gono abroad in smaller quantities of Into than had been expected. This relative, deelhio Is foreign requirements has been responsible .for the comparative indisposition of copper ahares to advance. Nevertheless, tho general condition of foreign trade at large is reported by some observers as showing Improvement and tho existence of a healthy tone. Activity on the Exchange has heeii' the general rule during the week, but mostly at. tho expense of values, duo to a new wave ot liquidation which has carried prices down In n great tunny instances to lower figures than those recorded last November. Viewed from a business standpoint, it is hard to account for the market's continued serious retrograde movement as notwithstanding the slackening here and there in different branches, as h-ifore noted, manufacturing plants throughout the country are as a whole still actively engaged. During the latter part of tho week buying orders were more in evidence, but it Is realized that most of these were placed for the purpose of sup- ixirt rather than for accumulation on an Important scale; nevertheless, if t.hey have the' efreel of lessening tho selling movement, as Intended, they will serve a good purpon.-.' until the market is uble to tako'caro of itself again. So far as the attitude of the general public is concerned • It shows little change, tho disposition being to reduce holdings -whenever prices are bid up and this policy will doubtk 'Hs be continued ui.'fil accounts generally are made safe and confidence again returns. There is no question that most stocks are now really cheap, but at tho moment Intrinsic worth Is ignored. eons, 6c. each or 76c a do; Hares Sc. \» EGOS—FrcBh, candled \OM cts. dozen. ies, a RodeV .

It also seems to Indicate sustained buying power in the farming districts, duo to t<le continuous ability of tho population there to ab sorb staple necessities and pay for them. Such a prospect is further con, firmed by the very conservative bonking situation which "Is revealed In current figures.
