Rumor of Verkun's Fal
Causes Sharp Break on
New York E-change.
STRADERS SELL IN HASTE
Nuber of Issues Sufer Througi
Stampede - Mexican Petroleum
Weak After Caraaza Order.
New York. Feb. U-Professional trad
ers hoisted the German flag in Wall
Street today and captured Verdun just
before the market closed. Scores of trad
ers were nervous and did not stop to
verify the rumor of Verdun's fall. but
sold precipitately. The result was a
sharp break. and the market closed In
full swing downward. with final prices
lowest of the session.
While net losses were considerable, they
dki not mark the extent of the decline.
for in the early trading the market had
a brisk rally under leadership of Ameri
earr.-locomotive. which has become more
*I a war stock than an Industrial. The
standard issues did not participate in the
upward movement, although they did
yield in the final drive.
Among those suffering most were Mex
ican Petroleum. Studebaker. Willy&-Ove!
land. Marine preferred, Crucible and
Canadian Pacifl.. That these did suffer
most, however. was purely accidental. It
just happened that they were the most
active issues, and the traders dealing
-in them happened to be standing by the
tickers. The whole drive was so quick
and unexpected that brokers had no time
to notify speculators not in constant
touch with prices. These people will be
on hand Monday. and should the rumors
of today be justified by developments
around Verdun. Wall Street must expect
a lively session.
In addition to the war news Mexican
Petroleum had, as a reason for weak
n:ess. the announcement by Carranza that
the Mexican government proposes to drill
for oil to supply the Mexican railroads.
An unusual volume of stock has been
taken out of the market. So many in
vestors have made so much money that
they have become frightened at their owlL
success. They have put this profit into
standard shares. which they have had
transferred to be laid away as perma
nent investments. The result Is that in
many of the most active issues there is
only a small minority interest available
for trading purposes. In one prominent
company definite figures obtained from
insiders has also showed that less than
30 per cent was available for trading
purposes.

Discussing the New York list' yester
day. W. B. Hibbs & Co. issued the fol
lowing stock letter from New York:
"The list again declined. For a time
the coalers were firm, especially Read
ing, but under cover of the strength in
the same, distribution occurred in other
directions. There was not much In the
day's news budget to excite comment,
though It in generally realised that the
situation with respect to Berlin is still
critical. Many tired bulls, discouraged
on account of the poor response which
the list has made to satisfactory basic
conditions. are now disposed to reduce
lines, and in addition thereto the element
bearishly disposed in working aggressive
ly on the down side with quite some suc
cess We continue to believe that stocks
sold at or around the prevailing levels
can be replaced to advantage later on.
We are among those who would much
prefer to be bullish at higher levels, with
a clearer outlook, than be in the position
of largely committed to the long side un
der prevailing conditions."
