THE WASHfoGTON TIMES, THUB8DAY, MAY 2, 1912.
New York Market Recovering From Liquidation
TRADING IN SPECIALTIES AT
HIGHER LEVEL OF PRICES
PERVADES THE MARKET.
NETW YORK, May 2. The market this
morning was firm and strong, with
trading largely confined to bpeclaltles.
Generally speaking the Impression was
that liquidation for profits had largely
ceased, and the prices under the stronn
Bupport of the bulls were duo for a
rise". The opening quotations nnd the
early trading scmd to justify this vlow,
but fluctuations were rather rapid and
In a wider range than usuul, ahowlng
an unsteadiness which' did not argue
well for a permanent rise.
Canadian Pacific, under the influence)
of the London market, opened three
points higher than yesterday's close at
156, but the advance was too strong
to last under the immediate sales foi
profits, and the price slumped to 23471
within an hour. American rails opened
strong, and advanced during the early
trading. Union Pacific opened at 172?i,
sold up to 173V4, and declined nearly a
point beforo noon, Heading opened at
176, advunccd to 177H. nnd came back
The Industrials were less active. Steel
opened half a point up at 71, and lost
half a point. It Is understood that tho
short Interest In steel bars Its rlao much
beyond "0, unless some strong support
ing pool comes In to put tho price
through market tactics to drlvo out the
shorts. American Can, which has been
very active for soveral days, opened
half a point up, and sold to 40)4. hold
ing the higher price during the morn
ing. The group of traders that has
been booming Underwood Tymiwriter
stock for several days wns In evidence
again, puxhlng with might nnd main at
their specialty. Tho stock opened at
105, and Rained a point and three-fourths
In the first two hours.
Most of tho stock list wub gam-rally
neglected, many Issues not having more
than one or two sales during the fove
noon. It Is a traders' market today,
one In which the public !s not nna can
not bo Interested.

fO SAVINGS DEPOSITORS:
In inviting you to become a depositor in our Savings Department we do not wish
to regard you simply as a number on a pass book. We wish to get acquainted with you,
to see you, as it were, grow up on our books, so that when the object of your savings
nears accomplishment and you are on the lookout for a permanent investment or pre
paring for the entrance into business of yourself or your children, we may know you well
enough to aid you in carrying out your object. We have special facilities for doing this,
because this is also a commercial bank.
These years of prudence and thrift during which you are, saving should be a very
valuable banking asset to you if you but knew it, one which should give you the best right
in the world to ask banking aid as occasion warrants.
We therefore invite you to deposit your savings with us, so that in doing so you
may lay the foundation not only of a competency, but of a character which shall have
a commercial value.
We wish you to consult us about your plans to be your friend, and not simply your
banker; and we place our best experience cheerfully at your service.
We pay 3 per cent on savings deposits, withdrawable on demand; we are under
Government supervision; our hours are especially arranged for the convenience of savings
depositors, and our counter arrangements are such that there is no waiting in line for
those whose time is limited.
Our banking office is within one hundred yards of the United States Treasury.
