THE EDITORS' VIEWS
What the New York Evenlng Pa ers
Have to Sny of Yesterday's Trading.
(ftpcelnl to Tbe TIuieB-DIsputch.)
NEW YORK, Feb. 2-1.?The Evenlng Post
Bavs: To-duy's very odd stock market
brbke with much violence at the stiirt,
recovcred slowlv nnd uncertalnly during
tho four ensuing hours, and rognlned its
lost ground ratber brlskly towards tho
tlose. Saturday's bank Btatement, whlch
nppeared when tbe Stock Exchango was
closed, and whlch was much worso than
Had been looked for, waa porhaps tho
ihief influence agalnst the market. Lon?
don, whlch wnlr oiwn .-l'or business both
Saturdav and' yesterday, antlcipated to
some ext'ont thls movement, as a result
or whlch fact forelgn prices enmes In, a.t
tho openlng to-day. a point or thereabouts
under New York p.-uity for Unlon Paoifio,
Readlng. Pennsylvanla', St. Paul, Louls
vllle and Southern Paoifio wlth decllnes
of Vi point general to tho llst; ,
Opening prices at New York responded
rather unlformly to thls forelgn inltia
tlvo, and such immedlate decllnes ensued

P.-ieifio. IVi ln Brooklyn Rapld Trnnslt,
Readlng aud General Electric, % each in
Bt, Paul and Unlon Paoifio, and Vi or
thereabouts In most other Blocks. This
?eneral decllne. occurred on a modernte
uslness and wlth no great Rtlr. After tho
openlng show of weakness thero were
Irregular recovi-rlcs; but little actlvity
developed untll ebortly beforo tho close.
Then tho recovery was rapld. The oxtru
ordlnary antlcs of St. Louls and San
Franclsco stock, wlth Its 6 point ovor
nlglit rlso, w^s not taken soriously.
The Mall and Express says: Tho re
aumptlon of business on tho Stock Ex?
chango after tho prolopged bollday was
marked by a very weuk tone ln the sharo
list, tho result of a general aelllng prea
sure, lnduced by sevoral causes, proinl

as tho Now York bank Btatement of Sat?
urday and the hanl.-nlng H'liilf-ncy ln

an liifhi'iice on local aentlrneiU. Tho ieel

The controlling inlluence during the enrly
sesslon wns a dlsappointlng set nf Lnp?
lis.h cables. There was conslderable sell
Ing by the room element on thls news
nnd a general absence of support on tho
part of tho bull clliiuo. whlch has been
so promlnent a factor In tho market of
lat'o. The only feature of tradc wus aell?
lng of aummer months by the South and
a little buylng of July for European ae
count. In a general way tho market was
fovcrlsh, remalnlng so throughout the day
nnd suggestlng a fear on the pof local
traders that an Importnnt change of some
character was nonr at hand. Short sell
iug was rostrlctcd sn.iicwhat by later
rallies at Llverpool, but room aentlment
wns unmistakably ?mlxed. Near months
ohowed rclativo slieadlnoss, prlnclpiuly
on coverlng by belated Marc.li shorts, The
dlfference botwecn May and Jul yrnngod
from 18?20 polnts most of tho forenoon.
After the flrst selllng movement had sub
slded there was a general St'oadylng up
of the whole Ust, whieh continued untll
after mid-dny, when commlsslon house
selllng, 'partly on stop-losa orders, oroko
Mav to 9.87. It wns also assumed that
Wall Street interests were Ideiuilled with
a movement to brenk tho market. Under
selllng of thls character tho mnrkt agaln
becamo very nervous und feverlsh, with
tho July dlscoupt under May wldening to
22 polnts. or the greatest ot tlie seaaon.
Large oxport clearanees and the flrmness
