TRADING WAS ACTIVE
Gocd Demand Was Shiwo for All
Glasses of Stocks.
Wall Street, 10:45 A. M. The im
provement in the stock market which
set In late yesterday, continued at the
opening today. Higher prices for
American stocks in London gave the
initial impulse, but the gains made
abroad were soon outstripped here.
There was a good demand for all
classes of stocks and trading was
active. Southern Pacific, St. Paul,
Canadian Pacific, AVestlnghouse,
Utah Copper, American Tobacco and
a number of other shares made ad
vances of one to two points. Lie
high Valley, which has been conspicu
ously weak, for some time, was the
only stock to show signs of heavi
ness. After opening fractionally
higher It reacted 1 1-4, falling to a
parity with its recent low point.
Closing. The market closed weak.
Demoralization of Lehigh Valley,
which dropped seven points in all to
184. caused a rapid fall in other se
curities. Can fell three points and
Head'rg and Amalgamated one.
