XEW YORK, Jan. 29. The New York
stock market looked fairly strong when
It opened this morning, but prices did.
not hold and the list sold off later to
lower levels. Steel was among the few
stocks which opened below closing
prices, and its loss for the morning
amounted to three-quarters of a point.
The efforts which -the American ed
eration of Labor Is making to unionize
the plants of the steel corporation,
which are beginning to show their re
sults in the disorder in the Pittsburgh
district and Chicago, portend graver
consequences. Union Pacific opened
strong, and Southern Pacific lower, but
the positions of the stocks changed dur
ing the morning, resulting in a show
ing of a loss of half a point for Union

reversal of form .from yesterday, the

the preferred losing two and a half.

it Is understood, will be done in the

Anniversary of First
Attack on President
The flrat attempt on the life of a
President of the United SUtes was
made seventy-eight years ago today,
when Richard Lawrence attempted to
assassinate Andrew Jackson. Ho tailed
In his project, and was tried for murder,
but was declared Insane., Laurence was
a house painter, and had no real griev
ance against President Jackson.
Since then three American Presidents
--Uncoln. Garfield, and McKInley have
been slain by assassins. In Russia, a
hotbed of murderous plotters, the bomb
has of late years been the favorite
weapon of assassins.
In America and Kngland the revolver
has most often been used, while in the
Latin nations the dagger has been fa
vored. Pew of the monarchs and high
officials of modern times have been ex
empt from murderous plots.
Alexander II nf Russia wan attacked
five times before he was killed by a
bomb in 1S81. and his successors have
never been free from fear of meetlne
the ltme tite.

BUSINESS MEN TO
NEW FREIGHT RULE
Withdrawal of Free Delivery
After March $ Will Be Sub
ject at Merchants' Meetings.
To consider the announcement of the
abolishment of free freight delivery by
the Pennsylvania railroad, the trans
portation committee of the Chamber
of Commerce will be called together
by Chairman P. T. Moran. A com
mittee of the Board of Trade will also
discuss the order, and it is probable that
the Retail Merchants' Association will
also take the matter up at once.
These meetings, together with the
announcement, by the Pennsylvania that
lt contemplates building a new freight
depot, the formal filing of the com
pany's announcement of the end of the
service lwith the Interstate Commerce
Commission, and a statement by. the
Baltimore and Ohio that lt would not
follow the Pennsylvania's lead consti
tuted tiie developments .today.
Merchants of Washington discussed
the news of the abolition of, free freight
delivery with keen"" interest today, for
the announcement means the end March
1 of a service enoyed since 18S3. Begin
ning almost colncldentally with the new
Administration, consignees' of freight
will have to pay for drayage, a charge
they never'have had to figure into the
selling price of goods.
Business men Who carry on their
trade within the limits of the old city
of Washington were disposed today to
blame north Fourteenth street and
Anacostla residents for the action of
the Pennsylvania. The upper Four
teenth street merchants and the Ana
costlans not long ago petitioned the
Interstate Commerce Commission 'for
an order extending the free delivery
to them. It had not gone north of
Florida avenue nor across the Eastern
Branch. Georgetown merchants have
always enjoyed It. The order was
granted the petitioners.
"The situation does not look alto
gether hopeful," said Mr. Moran." of
the Chamber of Commerce transpor
tation committee, today, "but there Is
a possible .loophole, and the commit
tee, which will be called together In
a day or two, will consider what can
The Pennsylvania officials while ap
parently resolute in their announce
ment are fearful, it is intimated, that
tho new order will estrange business
from them and they make the Drom
lse of Increased freight facilities in
the city, Ircludlncr "probably the con-at-Mictlott
of another new freight sta
tion." C. H. Graham, freight agent of the
BaUImore and Ohio said.
"So far as I know the Baltimore
