LAKE SUPERIOR BECOMES ACTIVE
IN LOCAL MARKET, BUT DECLINES
Weakness of United States Steel Common Is Blamed Cor
Receding Tendency of Usual Home Leader. "
Storage Battery and Cramp Drop
.- n i s
, The I'lilladelphln stock market continued heavy today, nearly, '
all changes helng to lower levels, with business generally small. About the
most Interesting feature to Philadelphia operators, however, was renewed
activity and weakness of Lake Superior Corporation. That Issue, after a
rierlod of Inactivity, showed more momentum soon after the opening than any
other stock, being heavily sold and Ieldlng as much a" 8 to 17, but meat
of the loss was recovered on reports of large earnings before the close.
There una no special renson advanced In the Street for the selling of this
usual Ipcal leader, but the opinion prevailed quite generally that Its course
was a direct reflection of the recent weakness of United States Steel common
both hero and In New York.
Steel todaj was, next to Supeilor, the active leader here .but. In line
vvilh its earlv break on the hie boqwl. It vieMH iiu. .,nic ,tni ... mo..-1
hv mldnftenionn. .
Railroad shares wero (iiot heavily traded In nnd showed an irregular
tondency. Lehigh Valley was marked up i nnd West Jersey and Seashore U.
early, but later wero lower. Notwithstanding the good report of earnings of
the Reading Railway for July, which enme out late jesterday, the holding1
company's shares lcldcd "(, on trilling transactions early In this session.
Pennsylvania and Minchlll each appeared unchanged.
Electric Storage Battery declined H and Rapid Transit certificates lost l
14, vvniio American minim?, l.enign isavigation and united tJas improvement
were unchanged. On smal! sales Cintnii dropped 1 and York Rnllv.nja
preferred U. Philadelphia Klectrlc, on a fair turnover, lust fractionally.
The most Interesting feature of the bond division was Hip activity of
Interim certificates to the I.ehlgh Vallej's new fis, wl .1, which were un
changed after a slight decline. Liberty Loan second 4s were notice, but
steady. Philadelphia Elcctilc first os advanced 1'4 per cent.
