Observer on the floor of the exchange who had a close view of Wednesday's market In l'nlon Paclflc say that It resembled more than anything else a roundup of an unwieldy short Interest The activities of the speculators for the decline have apparently focuaeed on union Pacific and Steel, and something of the kind has been witnessed before on the midsummer rise. On August 10 Isst a demonstration of the sort took place In Steel common, forcing the price up nesrly Ave points In two dsys. The cash distribution story in the present Instance supplied a convenient excuse, but the main Impulse for the advance probably came from athe frantic bidding of one short speculator against another when a whole company of them tried to undo their position In a narrow mar ket. The weakness of trnlon Pacific even before the directors' meeting apparently Indicated the presence of an "air pocket" caused by the sudden cancelling of a quantity of speculative contracts for the decline. The loan crowd also testified to a sudden change in the supply and demand of Union Paclflc as compared with the preceding day. Jfew York Central.

It Is suggested that the holder of New York Central stock must resign himself to a lower rsngc of prices for his stock In the future, for one reason because it Is now aelllng ex-clamour. In the old days New Tork Central belonged to the aristo cratic family of shares. When the pres tige of the Vanderbllts In the railroad sphere was at its h-lght the road was one of the best known American railwavs In the world It occupied the place of the arbiter of American railway affairs As such the stock was tremendously popular with investors, which accounts for the fact that !t used to scale far above the general list In recent years Its popularity has been on the wane ami ita high place has been usurped by others In the case of New York Central and In others the tendency for a speculative stock to be gradually hIis.ii lied by In vestors and to leave the Street la being reersed It Is expested that trading In Central win i mors active Service to Investors rsry Investor I confronted by the problem of obtetstng th largest possible Income return without sacrificing safety.
