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'
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
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. The Harriman Pacific raov

varying reports of the future plans or
