NKW YORK, Dec. 2.— Today's stock
market was under the same Influcnco as
that of yesterday. Tho depression and
hesitation shown In tho early dealings
were based on tho uncertainty of the
money outlook, tho financial disturbances
tn Russia and some anxiety over the ef
fect of the assembling of congress nnd
tho proposed legislation for federal con
trol of tho railroad rates.
There Is no actual borrowing of money
at tho stock exchange on Saturday, loans
made on Friday carrying over until Mon
day's money flurry to 15 per cent, left Its
disturbing influence and the nppearaucu
of the bank statement was looked to with
Interest to throw light on tho actual
situation. Tho statement was a weak
one, but sentiment seemed to lonn to the
interpretation that tho conditions disclos
ed were those of the paßt week and that
improvement was to bo looked for next
The Influence was an upward tendency
of prices after the publication of the bank
statement, which served to rc-storo large
ly tho previous declines.
A good effect was produced by the ap
pearance of support at tho last In the
Rock Island . Issues and the denial of
rumors of tho withdrawal of a leading In
terest in that property. The foreign ex
change market, although nominal on
Saturday, was easier In tono and rates
of discount declined again In London.
Btcrllng exchange at Paris was wetik.

EXPLAINS HIS THEORY
OF THE EARTH'S ORIGIN
PROF. CHAMBERLAIN OF CHICAGO
He Declares It Will Overthrow the
"Nebular Hypothesis" — Says It
Must Be Admitted the Moon Never
Had an Atmosphere
Ity Associated Prexs.
CHICAGO, Dec. 2. — In an address at
the opening session of the annual meet*
lngr of the Central Association of
Science and Mathematics teachers yes
terday, Professor Thomas Crowder
Chamberlain of the University of Chi
cago, outlined his recently announced
"accretion theory" of the eurth's origin,
which if accepted by scientists, will
overthrow tho so-called "nebular hy
pothesis" and do away with most of
the ideas commonly held as to the
origin of the earth and other planets.
According to the "nebulur hypothe
sis," or Laplace theory, which haa been
held for over a century, tho earth and
tho other planets originally were
masses of molten mutter thrown off
from the sun by Its whirling motion
and gradually cooled to their present
This theory Professor Chamberlain
attacks from the stand that the sun
never had a whirling velocity sufficient
to throw off Buch bodies.
Professor Chamberlain's theory is
that a disturbance was cuused In our
bun by the neur approach of, or colli
sion with, some other sun, which drew
uir projectiles of neb«lous mutter from
our sun nnd gave them a rotary motion
by its own attraction as it passed.
These particles of matter then gradu
ally gathered together to form the
The Internal heat of the earth, says
Professor Chamberlain, developed by
compression as the body grew.
The theory that the moon once had
an utmosphere, he usuerts, must also
ba given up.
The meeting of the association is at
tended by 500 teachera of science and
mathematics from the central states. >
