over without tho slightest regard to tho
prices tlioy would bring aud at distress

hour of tho market soma $10,000,000
was offered on tho ctoclc exchange by
the concerted action of the clearing

down to 0 per cent without regard to

tho money rato choclcod tho doclino and
drove tho bears to cover. Tho recov

tho stock market end which, by reason
of their extent and tho Importance ot

tho country's business interests unless

There was a suspension by a newly
organized trust company and by a firm
ot hankers nnd brokers who havo ilg

itself would havo been suHlciont to pre

Tho reasou for tho widespread effect
upon sentiment of tho trust company's
suspension was that it was ono of a

It has been obvious for many mouths
past that u great ileal of money had
been locked up by capitalists in these
now industrial combinations, which
wuro becoming burdensomit to curry by
roason of tho houvy demands for money
in tho regular chaunols, tho largo ab

urgent needs of tho London money mar

Lust weok's threatening oltuattoit in

of copper stocks, Tims it was that tho
trust company failure, ooniiug upon hint
