UNCOVERED SHORTS
MAKES BETTER DEMAND
The Previous Pressure lo Sell
Slocks Supplanted by Inclina?
tion lo Purchase.
JNT THE SOUTHERN SLUMPED
'Maintenance of the Dividend on the
Preferred Stock Is Said to Be in
Doubt?Position of Harriman Se?
curities Has a Decided Effect on
the Market.
(By Associated Press).
NEW YORK, .Ian. 9.?The pressure'
to sell stocks, which appeared ur?
gent' ami precipitate yesterday, was
decidedly moderate today ami after
it short time gave place to some In?
clination to buy. The demand seem?
ed to come largely from uncovered
shorts who had followed the rapid
decline yesterday. There was some
appearance of supporting orders al?
so. These diminished to almost
nothing on the advance in prices. ? I
The large shrinkage in the day's
total sales is evidently of narrow
proport.ons. The most conspicuous
continuance of tho liquidating ten?
dency today was in the Southern
railway stock and in the Hill rail
toad stocks. It was assumed yes1
|terdny that the sales of the South
"erh railway were due to the progress
of the settlement of the estate of
the hte President of the company'
hut today there were rumors Inj
circulation that the maintenance of
ti:ij dividend on the preferred stock
was in doubt. These rumors, how?
ever, met with disclaimers fro.n
unofficial sources.
Tho position in which tho Harri
ntiii companies are placed by the
In'.eistnte Commerce Commission's i
Inquiry was a factor In restraining!
any renewal of largo speculative >
vt.iUutf.8. Today's1 interest In the
Bftuojct was deepest in tho deprit
ture, or reports of the Intended de?
parture, .for foreign countries or
some of the capitalists whose testi?
mony it was expected would be tak
1 en bv the Commission.
The ruling rate for call loans,
today was higher than yesterday,
hilt the rate eased after the opening
and did not touch yesterday's. Rates,
for tjme money were rather easier'
In tone although not quotably chang?
ed.
The market closed strong after aj
considerable reaction in sympathy
with the acute weakness of the Hill
stocks. Bonds were decldely firm
and .there was a faint appearance
of January investment demands. To?
tal sales par vlue $2,338,000. U. S.
Coupon advanced 1-8 per cent on call
