New York. Feb. 6. The stock -market today was less affected by evi dence of the contracted stage to which the traffic industry has fallen al though evidences continue to accum ulate. The market in fact is unre sjionsive to anything and for much of the time there was a lethargic dull ness. The indifference fairly repre sents the present uncertainty of the world of finance over the future-. The feeling is more general that the depth of the depression has been reached and that an improvement is to be looked for. STOCKS.
