NEW YORK. Maren 23.?The doubt
over the outcome of the Cuban contro?
versy between the United States and
Spain was a depressing influence in the
lo a! stock market today, as it was in
every market for securities in the world,
thy. and the same influence weakened
In Paris the weakness \>C Spanish fauns
effected all other securities by sympa?
thy- markets in London and Berlin, the
heaviness of American railroad eaewi
ties being an additional factor at the
hitter two centres. In the local! exchange
there was a 'Welii defined bull party
whose operations were attended) with
more or less success, thus subtracting
very materially fcom the slum of the
depression. The motive publicly avowed
bvthis bull party for its attitude is that
prices are lower 'than are warranted
by intrinsic values and by the political
outlook. But It is doubtless influenced
also by the technical condition of the
market, which is full of short contracts
waiting to be cov-ired ?n the expected
slump on anticipated decisive develop?
ments In the Cuban situation.
