NEW TORK, Dec. 11. Buying was ail

day, and served to hold prices about
where they were at last night's closa.
The Industrials showed a ester toae,
But upon the whole, both lit rails and
Industrials, the price changes were
small. The active leaders, such as
Bteel, Union and Reading, fared not
so well as the less prominent stocks.
Bteel had a bard time keeping an even
keel, while Union became .decidedly
weak after a strong opening. Reading
also opened strong, and sold up a
point and a quarter, but later In the
morning and during the noon hour the
stock was selling slightly under the
close. Canadian Pacific, St. Paul, and
Can, on the other hand, showed gains
of nearly a point.
