IKS, SPECU LAT V COUP N MEXICAN PETE SHORTS SQUEEZED Stock Sells at 163, Gain of 17 Points Over Saturday Inquiry Probable. Ono of those speculative coups which Is i-o much abhorred by in terests who arc endeavoring to reform tho New .York Stock Exchange from within, occurred to-day in Mexican Pcti oleum stock. La to' in the day, It nold above 163 for a gain of more than 17 points compared with the (closo of Saturday, and nrf ndt ancoT'of more than thirty points compared with the low of last week. Tho movement represented nothing more than a squeezing of powerful speculative Interests who last week dumped thousands of shares of the stock on the. market in tho evident belief that "Mex. Pete" would lead the decline in security prices gen erally which they Judged was Im pending. Other and equally powerful specu larors who aro closely Identified with tho company told their friends last Friday when tho stock was selling aronund 130 that It would cross 160 before the close to-day. Although tho supply of "Mex. Pete" available for trading purposes Is only approximately 75,000 shares, this market tip was nearly everywhere dlsrcgfarded. Shortly after tho opening this morning, however, buying orders poured into the marekt In large volume and the speculators who sold the stock so freely last week were called upon to deliver the stock they had borrowed against their short sales. They soon found that the sup ply was exceedingly scanty and that practically the only way they could letiiin Miiiowed stook was to go into the niaiUet and purchase it. The process of squeezing the short inleiest did not icach its culmination until the last half hour of business. It was not until after 2 30 when the nerves of Wall Sticet tiadeis were becoming frayed that "Mex Pete" Indicated tho upward movement was at an end, temporarily at least. In Wall Street It Is considered not Improbable that Stock Exchange au thorities will again call upon mem ber firms to glvo their position in tho stock at tho close of last Saturday and to-day, and to tell of tho amounts Ixjrrowed and sold so that It may bo determined whether the rlso was ac corddlng to tho Stock Exchange's Hoyle.
