IN PROFESSIONAL RUT Languid Response to Efforts to Keep Speculative Interest (live. HARDENING OF THE MONEY MARKET Banking Opinion Doea Not Look for Stringency This Fall, But Restric? tion of Credits la Imperative on Ac? count of Heavy Drains. (Hy Associated Press). NEW YORK. Sept. 14.?The slock 'market narrowed to a professional nit today. Efforts were made to keep e|hh-ulatlve interest alive by SnBSl n trating operations in one or two Of BM usual speculative favorites and a few novelties, but the naaaajBSt of the general list was languid. The tendency of prices to retrace the course was another sign of the pre? dominance of professional -traderi' 'transactions. The hardening of the money mar? ket la a natural cheek on fresh spec? ulation. While banking opinion does not look for any stringency this fall, the position of the New York banking reserve shows that a restriction of credits Is imperative, to conform to the heavy drain now making on the cash holdings of the hanks. The usual recourse is to foreign I money markets at this time of the j year, but the New York money mar? ket is extended already to an enor-1 moiis extent on that side. The low level of merchandise ex liorts for many months past and j which still persists, has combined with very large imports to leave the] internal exchange market without the | usual material for covering foreign j remittances. The banks today -were Inclined to advance the rate for call lean rates In concert and the making of a 3 I*t rent rate by one or tivo of the larg? est Institutions made an example that | was generally followed. The stock market was strong In spite of the money situation which was reflected in the dullness in the R|x'Culation rather than in pressure to sell.
