By Associated Press.
NKW YORK, Nov. 16.-The speculative
movement today was more diversified
than yesterday, although the aggregate
sales for the day did not exceed those
of yesterday. The decrease was in those
stocks in which dealings were congested
yesterday to a degree that gave the
market an unnatural appearance.
The favorite stocks in yesterday s spec
ulation were under more or less pressure
today In a process of prottt taking. St.
Paul still held a leading place in the
movement, but it was irregular and
yielded Bharpiy at the outset under offer
ings to realize. It came up afterward,
and Reading ..lao made a new start to a
higher level.
Lack of consistency was a general
comment upon the market. Stocks heiv
and there would start up with nothing to
explain the movement. Western specula
tive combinations wore credited with very
large operations in the market. The
Standard Oil party was supposed to be
accumulating stocks, notwithstanding the
continued neavy fall of that stock In the
curb market and the sensational atten
tion given to the government's suit
against the company.
A reported hasty return to this city
Of President Hill of the Great Northern
was the ground for rumors of important
pending developments affecting his prop
erties.
The usual explanation heard for the
rise in Amalgamated Copper was that it
might be expected, as a Standard Oil
favorite, to follow the movement of St.
Paul.
Money continued to work easier. Only
small changes Indicated in thu cash hold
ings of the banks for the week as a re
sult of the currency movement, but a
large cutting down of the loan Item Is
experted to be shown soon in conse
quence of free lending here for account
of interior banks. The tone of the money
market precludes any doubt aboirt the
reserved having been restored to the
legal 25 pel cent limit or above it.
The banks report a definite shifting .if
Ihe course of the currency movement .
The turn in the movement toward New
York was of large sentimental effect, as
further gains in the future are thus in
dicated.
The irregular tone of the latter market,
when profit taking had become general.
was broken in upon by a buoyant Jump
In the Hill stocks, and the market closed
generally strong under this Influence.

KICKING GUN ACTS AS
PARACHUTE; SAVES BOY
GRAVE RIDGE, Pa., Nov. 16.— 1t was
cool, calculating judgment that saved
Phil Six, the famous boy rifle shot, from
a terrihle death at Steeple Rocks the
other day.
■Six had followed a wildcat to the
dizzy heights and when he reached the
top he found to his chagrin that the.
animal had escaped into a, cave. In the
hope of smoking it out he lighted a fire.
The boy hunter was standing on the
edge of the cliff. Hundreds, of feet be
low lay pagged rocks and the sharp
tops of dead pine trees. He did not
know thut there was another outlet to
the cave. ■
Out of this exit came the wildcat. It
leaped upon the lad, who, with a hor
rible shriek, toppled over the cliff, the
wildcat with him.
Then the master mind showed itself
in the emergency. Pointing his rifle
toward the ground, Six fired. It Is the
worst kicker In all this section and the 1
recoil stopped his flight. The wildcat
kept on fulling and was mangled.
Seven times did the rifle crack aiid
seven tlmoe was Six's Might arrested
until finally he dropped lightly into a
low bush absolutely uninjured.
