Federal Judge Arthur J. Tuttle has

that have encumbered it for years, it
la the first Important step that has
been taken by a local court in the
fight against the law’s delay, about
which there has been so much talk

Judge Tuttle's rules were formulat

their use will come up with the open

Even then, their full effect will net
be seen, as the docket will not be
read until Monday, March 14. The
rules of the court prescribe that the
United States marshal must obtain
three bids for the printing or the
docket, end send them to Washing

Washington as to which of the three
bids for tbe printing of the March

Paralysis of Wire Service Re
sults In Utter Stagnation
of Business
Ceprrtgkt 1014 By The Sew York
■Create* Wees c*.
NEW YORK, March 2.—That this
would be the dullest stock market
day of the year to date was deter
mined by Wall street when business
'began this morning. With wire
aerrlce connecting —New —York and
the outside world paralysed, with
attendance on the exchange floor
greatly diminished and with appar
ently no incentive to buy stocks It
ia indeed surprising that ao much as
06,000 shares were dealt In during
the five hours of trading.
Business was entirely of a pro
fessional character and though prices
for the most part dosed with
losses of 1-2 to a point, as compared
with Saturday, the declines register
ed had no special significance.
Europe sold stocks here at the open*
lng, and thus determined the course
of price movements. It may be
that the foreign selling was baaed on
the Mexican situation, but if this
was so. the same Incentive to sell
stocks was not found hare. Lack of
support, rather than pressure of
sales, accounted tor the net result
of the day’s price movements.
Apart from the effect of the storm
In limiting business, the market was
influenced by the, unfavorable char
acter of Saturday’s bank atatemnsi
and additional poor railroad re
turns for January.

« Mr. Barium’s complaint that goods
