OPENED STRONG
'Osscs Were Made
Throughout List Feeling
That Recession Will Sta

MEW TOnK, Dec. 16. After opening
tfantr, with prices up all around, n. sharp,
reaction set In, which carried the quo
tations of stocks below yesterday's clos
ing from !i of a point to 27. points, the
declines generally being fractional ones
and In somo cases ranging; around a
point The reaction In prices seemed
to bo caused by quite a. little foreign
selling and prodt-taklng. Tho latter was
thought to be more largely responsible.
The general undertone was strong, how.

Total sales were: Htnrkq. 2M.fi(jO Mint-en:

The reaction In prices did not create any

opinion that the market was ndvnnclng i Chlcaco, Mll.'st. Vaul . . Olf
At too fast a pnee and a sllcht dron In
prices would do much to stabilize It. Thus
the decline was looked upon with favor
generally.
As was the case In the upward swing,
Heading was one of tho leaders down
ward, closing 2V5 points below tho final
yesterday at 148. Lehigh Valley was on
at 134: Pennsylvania M at 10S; St
Taul 1 at mii iUchlson 2 at 83.
Accompanying, the reaction camo a fur
ther reduction In the call money rate to
Vi per cent. This Is tho lowest money
has been loaned since the war In Eu
rope began. Later the rate recovered to
IJ4 per cent, tho ruling rato throughout
last week.
.There wcro some loans of time money
t 4M per cent for four and five months.
This was the first day for trading In
tho tmpoitant International sharet slnco
tho suftponsloli caused by the European
war.
Chief of tho stacks In which there Is a
trong International Interest and which
wero traded In for the first time wero
United Stales Steel, Great Northern
Southern Pacific, Canadian Paclllc, New
Tork Central and Baltimore and Ohio, ,
Tho first salo of Steel was an order for
4000 shares at 55, a goln of one point from
tho price of tho last transaction through
tho Cleailng Hcruse yesterday, nud seven
points 'abovo tho minimum price estab
lished by the Special Committee of Flvo.
Among tho sales for foreign account
were some DaUlmore and Ohio at tho
tart and later United Stntcs "Steel com
mon and Union Paclc. Lendlpg foreign
houses stated that with prices of inter
national Issues tho only way Curopo can
trado Is on the selling side, and more
foreign buying cannot bo expected until
peaco.,Is at hand.
Tho powerful capitalists who had much
to do with the upward movement In tho
market recently did little today, and
seemed to be disposed for the Drescnt to
let the market take caro of Itself. Tho
absence of buying from this sourco
madn the bear operators a little more
confident, and Instead of urgent covering
they were rt'spo&cd to put out fresh lines
of shorts. Tie position of the short In
terest on Saturday and yesterdny was
Called pitiful, as it was colled' on to return
stocks without a chance to cover except
t sharp advances, and wero placed at
the mercy of whoever Is in charge of bull
ish operations. The early trading In
creased the already largo outstanding
short account, and It 1b now more vul
nerable than It was before..

Tift announcement of the ofllclal re
duction In the cull money rate In tills
city to 5 per cent, was by no means un
expected, as new loans lnivo been made
nt the lower flsuro for some time. Nor
did the news stimulate security values
here today to any extent, tn fact, tho
reaction In New York carried prices down
in the afternoon. Time money wns of
fered this mornlntj at 4',4 per cent, for
three months, and brokers expressed the
belief that tho quotation would bo still
lower shortly.
Kasler monetary conditions were rc
llectcd mora In bonds tlinn In stocks.
Interstate Is wcro taken In considerable
quantities at 56Tj. Keystone Telephone
ia were also 111 demand, mid over-the-counter
business was said to bo brisk.
City bonds wore scarce. A block of
registered 4s of 193$ sold at 99 and school
district 4H3 on a 4.10 per cent, basis.
Stocks Wore lrrcculai', and tho tradlne
broadened out to Include a number of
usually Inactive Issues. Ilapld Transit
moved up to 13?; before much supply nas
forthcoming. Then It cased off below
lust night's final figure. Electric StorriKO
scored a fractional advance, and so did
I.ehlgli Valley Transit preferred, Key
ntono Telephone preferred, York Hallways
preferred and Philadelphia .Company.
TI10 weakness ot the arbltrago Issues
checked enthusiasm and prices became
dull and reactionary in tho afternoon.
Cambria Steel after selling up to I4(j
broko tn 43 around 2 o'clock, when tho
Anthracite shares began to recede.
Little wns done In Heading and Lehigh
Valley during the moinlng. but United
Slates Steel, after opening up to 5J',4 and
D5i, which wns no less than above tho
New York top price, slipped down In
sympathy with tho reaction In Wall street.
Pennsylvania held relatively steadier.
Philadelphia brokerage houses reported
a considerable arbitrage business between
New York, Wilmington and this city in
the various powder stocks. An oltlciat of
tho duPont Company statod that while
his company was doing a big foreign
business It was chiefly with the nations
not at war, whoso sources of supply had
been cut oil on aceount of hostilities,
and had come to this country as prac
tically the only open market for high
explosives, Just ns they had for nil sorts
of other materials. Thero has been a
big rise In nearly all tho powder se
curities in the last month.

With the formnl Inauguration of the)
new form of tatement by tho Philadel
phia Clearing; House Hanks this week. It
mny bo said that tho loenl Federal lie-
servo system Is now completely under
way.
All the Items contained In the old form
nre retnlned, but, of course, a "wide
variation Is shown from former state
ments, owing- to the reduction In reserve
requirements, which are some 113,000,000
less than wns required a yenr oro at
this time. Consequently the surplus rose
arbitrarily.
The Fedornl Ilcservo Bank of this city
operates practically Uniformly with all
tho other rcservo centres excepting Chi
cago and Kansas City. It Acts aa a
Clearing- House betweeri its own mem
bers within the city, butSdoes not as yet
follow tho example set by the two West'
crn Federal banks, which recently be
gan to clear for out-of-town members
to n certain extent. Nor has It yet been
decided whether this city will follow
suit
Somo comment has been mnde that the
Federal Reserve bankB, by not reporting:
clearings made for members, cause the
country's volume of tiado to bo mlsr
represented, but It was pointed out by
a local ofllclal today that this was In
dicated by the. deposits which ara re
ported recently. The Philadelphia Re
serve Bank Is n member of the local
Clem Ins House Association, whereas the
Chicago Federal Ilescrve Bank has not
yet Joined the association In that city.
Tho introduction of the new system has
been remarkably well handled as a whole
and tho country's fllnancos have scarcely
felt the slightest Jar. Monetary condi
tions, in fact, immediately became easier
desplto (he unprecedented upheaval In
Europe. This, however, leads to one seri
ous question that of Inflation. Sup
posing conditions In Europe and else
where had been normal when the new
system was Inaugurated. Would the sud
den loosening up of reserves havo de
veloped an era of over-speculation and
Inflation In this country, or would the
various arrangements made to safeguard
the country from this have proved ade
quate? Tho full force of the Federal Tteserve
system will not be entirely developed for
a year or more. Meantime frequent ex
changes of suggestions and experiments
are being mado nnd the banking frater
nity la gradually adapting Itself to the
altered conditions. The ultimate general
plan of clearing will doubtless be that a
given Federul bank will do the clearing
for its own members within the city and
ivll! participate in the- several clearings qf
the local clearing house on behalf of the
members of the Federal Iteserve Dis
trict outside the city wherp the bank Is
located.
The Federal Reserve officials them
selves admit that they are still uncertain
as to many points In the working out of
the new system, Unfortunately it waB
begun under abnormal conditions and
It still must stand the test of normal
conditions. It will, doubtless, therefore bo
several years before final Judgment can
be passed upon It In all Its ramlflcatlons-
