heavy supporting orders turned the 1
current, and forced heavy coverings. 1
Subsequent fluctuations were very er- ,
rattc, in sympathy with the changes I
elsewhere, but the stock rebounded
strongly, and ended at the top. The ]
futile efforts of the shorts tc* inflict dam- j
age on the railway list caused the traders
to range on the long side for a turn, ,
and bullish sentiment became more
marked. Absorption of the standard
dividend stocks has been in progress
lately by Interests capable of holding
them until the general situation becomes
clearer, and outride confidence regarding
the tendency of the money market <
Is restored. Consequently the apparent
diminution In the floating supply of
stock caused a momentary scramble, *

In order to make the losses more
acute. Dullness followed the rise, and j
little of Interest vaj developed until the
late session, when Tobaccu was savage- .
ly attacked, and extensive short lines
were put out elsewhere. Tobacco, which
reached a level fractionally above last J
night's slumped seven points to 1 27%. }
and the market for rubber and some
other atoclce was cut away. The demor- 1
alizatlon In Tobacco forced holders to
sacrifice their Interests elsewhere to
meet the urgent demanda of commission 2
houses for additional margins. Reports
regarding the nature of the forthcoming
Burlington statement added to the i
break, and large blocks were let go,
with resultant severe liwses. The success
of the bear party in causing the
current demoralization In Sugar and 1
Tobacco caused considerable nervousness
and uncertainty among security
hodlers. The steadiness o^ the money '
