ROLL ARMY REPORTED CUT IN BETHLEHEM STEEL 88JM171-8 Wild Scenes as Non-Dividend Stock Hits Par for First Time. CLOSING PRICE IS 1()5. General Motors and Rubber Shares Also Go to Higher t Levels. Iletlileh'-m Steel stock ran away with the. mnrltot this afternoon, and the Stock Kxchungn was wild with excltemont. Starting tho day at 8S. Ilothlehcm started a steady rlso of 29 points, touching high water mark of 117H before the close. When tho stock reached par on the wny up thero was cjieering and ex citement on the tloor. but tho scenes were mild compared with those, during tho snnwatlona! skyrocketing which camo later, when fluctuations of live points between sales wero frequent. Aftor touching the high point it re acted and closed at 105, Thero wero many rumors to account for the extraordinary bulgo. In somu quarters It was said that a group of speculators had been csught short of the stock and were being squcezod hard. Another teport was that, despite the statements of President Schwab, adverso to dividends, a melon would bo cut In tho form of a 100 per cent, dividend on the common stock. Up to the present Uethlchem Steel has not paid anything on Its com mon. Leadei'H of the Stock Exchange looked with disfavor upon tho wild speculation. They said It would have tt tendency to scare away legitimate Investors and that tho public would be wary about coming Into a market like this. Seldom has tho Exchange known a non-dlvtdeml paying stock to reach par, even In days of wild speculation. It Is now moro than fifty points above United Stntes Steol common, which llkewlso pays no dividend. Although tho Bathlohom Company has made enormous profits from war orders during the past six months, President Schwab Is against cutting a melon for stockholders and Insists that the money shall be put back Into the plant and debts paid off.

Another queer circumstance was that Esser kept an automobile In the. old shack where ho lived. The man never was known to do any regular work, but always was plentifully sup plied with money. 1 Detectives wore trying to find out to-day whether Esser was In any way connected with a William Esser, who. In 1908, was a mechanic In the employ of the E. W. nilss Company, of Ilrooklyn, which then hud a contract for manufacturing Whltehoad tor podoes for the Govornmont.

When Essor uppoared In Flatbush, about a year ago, ha built the, shack In which ho and his wife Uvod, Ile cently ho had a dispute with tho Flat bush Water Company, and then do elded to open an old well near the shack. Louis Storz of Woodhavuu was employed to clean tho woll. He and Esior had a dispute and Essor then started In to do the work him bolf. Ho was down about thirty feet when tho hides of tho well caved In. Uustuv Meescberg, a florist who has a place- near tho Esser ahac'f, said ho had heard thut Esser was a German secret service agent. "Ho told me he was compelled to flee from Germany bin..jsn of t '.o there," aald Mossoberg, "I don't know why he kept tho automobile in part of bis shack. Ho would make long trips In It, but novor used it much around the neighborhood," Esher was about fifty-four, tull and well built, with blondo hair. SAILING TO-DAY.
