I THE StW, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 18l8. Inn Ana at. Aim commbuctal. Mowtut. Rent. IB. Tk spweutaHon In stoeke to-day was dom inated to a large extant by a further sharp de Mb In SutrarBeflnlng common. Thstavlgnr- eampslgn on tba abort alda of thla stock la being conducted by certain of tha large lahsi'ssfs operating on tba Rtock Exchange la apparent to avnry ona. There la no nsws affecting tha value of tha aaoarltr. nor isBhaTitis been sine tba flint of tha month, whan It aold at 146V. Tha loweat prioa to-day wan 116K, which la a maximum decline of naatir 29 point. To be euro, aome of the new emu petition whloh arery ona baa known about for mora than, a year and a half past bM materialised: yet tha trade has not yet begun to refloat hostilities between tha American Company and tha Arbuekla refinery. Why speculative or Investment holders of the etoek of tha first named should hare deferred Ho.rldtln their holding until now la ex plained solely by the rapid and material de aline, in the priee of tha etoek. whloh. aa already noted, baa been brought about by powerful and aggressive manipulation. It la possible that In the course of time the earning power of the American Sugar Refining Company- may be somewhat Impaired by tha new competition, but those who are making tha present movement In the stock are not waiting for that develop ment. When the price haa reached a level that disturbs oonfldenoe on tha part of holdera even mora severely than it haa yet been shaken. tha ohaneea are that the floating supply will be largely absorbed by those who will then have made up their mlnda to bring about a cessa tion of tba hostilities in the rcflnlng Industry tha have not yet been really begun. The sell ing of tha stock during tha laat two or three weeks Is doubtless preparatory to a sharp and decisive trade fight Tba net decline of over four points In Bugar Refining caused a moderate selling throughout tha remainder of the Hat. The most pro AjMSjoad effect, however, waa the repression of epMalalfcHT. for the market In the early deal ing and before the weakneaa In Sugar Reflntag became . pronounced, ahowed a tendency to advance. Tha London mar ket tot American securities waa fraction ally higher, and there were indications of a "resumption 'of (he foreign buying move ment that waa a feature of the market last weak. Moreover, the feeling waa very strong that the money market haa reached a turning point, a. circumstance that. together with other favorable developments affecting values, auoh aa.railway.trafflo returns and trade conditions, encouraged aome buying both through com mission houses and by local dealers. The fact that Sugar Beflnlng aupplied vary nearly one half of tne total transections, which were not unusually large, demonstrates that many be liever In higher prices were constrained to hold aloof from the market until the decline in the leading industrial stock haa practically run its course. In leas than half a dozen other stocks did the transactions foot up more than 10,000 shares. Evan the recant leaden of the market, the Paclfta ' shares, were traded In upon a much smaller scale than they have been for a long time past Kobe of tha net declines waa Important, and In the majority of cases they did not ezoeed fractions. A few stocks, notably American Tobacco, Brooklyn Rapid Transit, Baltimore and Ohio and a num ber of the leaa active Issues, closed fractionally higher than on Saturday. New York Air Brake enjoyed a further phenomenal rise of 10 potnta. whloh la explained on the theory that the sale of , the Walker Eleotrio Company to the Westlnghonse Company might logically be followed by tba transfer of the New Tork Air Brake enterprise, which Is controlled I by substantially tha same capitalists aa the Walker Company, to tha Westing house Company. A number of stocks. though not dealt lit extensively, showed SHsMelliaitl firmness throughout, among tbam Cleveland. Lorain and Wheeling issues. United States Leather preferred, and Cnlcago Greet Western. In the final dealings tha mar ket rallied, and the closing wss in tha main ateady. Receipts of gold from Europe to-day were 9400.000. No new engagements were announced, but they are foreshadowed by the sal of 9600.000 gold by tha Bank of England.
