SHORTS SNARED IN THE MARKET Few Stocks Decline And These Only Fractionally. Public Is Investing. By BROAD AN HALL. New York. Aug. 1.?The theory that! a large short interest was entrapped j in the stock market proved correct | today, for with all the news of a character to enjoin caution, the J 1st was Arm in all departments and ac tually buoyant in spots. The most active l&sues were the Whelan-Duke stocks. These closed with a whirl at new high record prices. Others to show distinguished strength were stocks of small metal companies. The few stocks that declined showed only fractional losses. If there had been an overbought condition there would have been a; deluge of stock for sale. In addition to the possibility of high money that threatened the Street all day, there was the nation-wide strike of rail road shopmen and the double holiday. The fact that stocks advanced in stead of declined proved that the un wieldly interest was on the short side. The possibility of optimistic developments over the holiday were too great for the professionals to risk. Among; the most cheerful bits of market information was the state -m*nt of the Federal Reserve Bank admitting that there had been| heavy investment buying on the part of the general public. Al though the Street in general main tains a bullish attitude one of the largest commission houses issued wires to their customers and cor respondents advising caution at this time. Announcement that the Stutz Motor Car Company proposed issu ing 25.000 shares of new stock to shareholders s*t $100 a share failed to have any depressing influence on the quoted market price of the stock.

To Holders of 5 Per Cent First Mortgage Gold Bonds of the City & Suburban Railway of Washington: This Company is without funds to pay the interest due August l, 1019, on the above bonds, amounting to $1,750,000. Its earnings for the six months ending June 30, 1919] have been insufficient to meet actual costs of operating and maintain ing its property, without allowance for depreciation and damage reserves and without any return upon investment. On July 9, 19x9, a petition was filed with the Public Util ities Commission of the District of Columbia for authority to charge a seven (7) cent fare and to discontinue all transfer and through routing arrangements with other connecting com panies, and it is hoped the Commission may take early favor able action on said application, so as to promptly restore the Company's earning power and credit and enable it to meet its obligations.* It cannot, as usual, turn to the Washington Railway & .Electric Company (the parent Companv) for assistance, on ac count of the present financial condition of said Company, fcrought about by insufficient earnings. i City & Suburban Railway of Washington By A.
