STUNG SCENES
IN WALL STREET
OESCRIBED AS "RICH MEN'S
PANIC-
Holders of Big Blocks of Securities in
Wild Rush to Unload— Wide
Fluctuations In Favor.
ite Stocks
By Associated Press.
, NEW YORK, March «.— Wall street
hns seldom If ever seen such varied and
violent fluctuations in prices of securi
ties as those which occurred today.
There have been panics In the stock
market when prices fell apparently Into
a bottomless abyss; there have been
boom periods when the bold operations
of daring speculators seemed to be
currying prices inimitably upward: but
the feverish upward and down* al
(•rations which characterized today's
movement have hud few parallels.
The market was two sided from the
•tart. Then followed a period of abrupt
reversals of the gcnornl current of
prices and ultimately excited and ells
orderly attempts nt cross cuts. The
whole movement was without definite
news to explain it but the volume and
the aggressiveness of the operations
were sufficient to stamp them as coming
from sources of Importance. It Is this
lmplied Importance of the origin of the
present dealings and the mystery
which hangs over It which have given
to Its Impresslveness to the speculative
lmagination.
Wall street parlance has found a
phrase "rich men's panic" to define the
condition. This Is based upon the sup
position, quite commonly held in the
neighborhood of the stock exchange,
that men of great wealth who accumu
lated large holdings of stocks last year
find themselves without prospect of
soiling out to advantage In the present
public distaste for the stock markets.
lt, Is believed that they have been
prompted as well by the urgency of
other calls upon them due to the uni
versal pressure for capital, and by
fears of being overtaken by 11 period of
lndustrial depression, to liquidate their
holdings as best they may. The action
of the market for several days and of
special stocks notably has given color
to this theory of the events in progress.
.-';. -'; To , this condition of sentiment was
precipitated today a report that carried
with It an inference that the supposedly
capitalists were In reality taking ad
vantage of the unsettlement of values
to carry out another Reading exploit.
„The, ,The , rumor alleged with posltiveness
that certain large centralized holdings
of, Reading had been taken over by Mr.
Harrlman, securing his control of the
property. The heavy liquidation of
yesterday in Atchlson was alleged to
bcb be Union Pacific holdings to provide
resources for the Reading operation.
The bears in Reading were thrown
lntoI Into a panic and there was a scramble
to cover all through the list. The re
port was impossible of verification and
lts plausible and likely features were
KOK O mixed as to leave the opinion at sea.
The bears were intimidated and wore
disinclined to pursue their attacks on
prices of other stocks.
The Reading rumor came Into the
market in the midst of a drastic liqui
dating movement in Canadian Pacific
■which had forced that stock down over
7 points below yesterday's closing level.
This had much the same effect as the
violent slump in Atchison yesterday
and had served to break the whole
market. The reversal of the movement
■was all the more abrupt and violent on
that account.
;■■•■■ There also was very heavy liquida
tion in Pennsylvania, Amalgamated
Copper and Union Pacific. The absorp
tion of the Hill stocks and of Reading,
however, was constant throughout the
day. Atchlson also met no such selling
pressure as that of yesterday.
- These evidences of resistance in the
market already had divided speculative
sentiment and the Heading incident
turned prices decisively upward. No
attention was paid to news concerning
general conditions.
. , The last prices were generally the
best of the day and an active buying
movement was in force.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales,
par value, $1,730,000.

Sales at the call session of the produce
exchange were confined to thirty eases or
local case count eggs and five cases of
longhorn cheese.
ln the llsh market there was about
enough large fish to meet the demand,
while small fish were scarce, The sea
continues rough and fishermen experience
much difficulty In making catches.
After the call session C. W. Thompson,
a member of „ie exchange and a promi
nent Shriner, stated that the Shriners to

thirty to forty thousand ft rangers to tho
city for Fiesta week and that the "great

would be given on three nights. On mo
tion the directory of the exchange was
requested to donate $60 to provide one
ticket for each member of the exchange,
thus contributing toward the expense of
bringing the people to Los Angeles.

ANALYSIS OF RELIEF MEASURE
NOW A LAW
National Bank Circulation to Become
More Elastic — Paper Money In
Smaller Denominations to
Be Supplied
Rpeci.ii to The Herald.
NKW YORK. March I. The Aldrlch
Mil has been regarded by the public and
the press ffpnerftlly m merely n com
promise measure probably possessing
no real effectiveness In meeting the
difficulties of currency reform. Care
ful perusal, however, discloses clearly
that tho bin n..t only Introduce! ma
terial reforms in currency matters, but
also changes affecting the interests of
national hunks. In fact, those changes
may Involve eventually important re
adjust merits in tn.- national currency.
The Aldrlch 1. 11 l may be considered I"
effect three changes.
I—To1 — To end the 1 essarlly disturbing
Influences of the treasury In Money
market affairs liy permitting the secre
tary of the treasury to deposit customs
receipts as well as internal revenue in
national bonks designated as national
depositaries. Security may consist ol
United States bond's anil such other
securities as lire designated by the sec
retary of tho treasury on or hcToie
January 1 of each year.
2 — To render more elastic national
bnnk circulation by Increasing flic limit
of retirement Of hank notes from $3.
0,000 as at present, to $'.1,000,000 per
month.
3 — To readjust the classes of currency
in circulation, namely United States
notes, treasury notes, bank notes, gold
certificates anil silver certificates, by
the following changes In their denom
inations of Issue.
(a) By lowering the denomination of
gold certificates from $20 as at present
to $10.
(b) By gradually replacing United
States notes (greenbacks) of denomina
tions greater than $,". with United States
notes of denominations of $1. $2 and $6,
The $338,000,000 United States notes
now of a denomination of $10 or over
will become largely of the denomina
tion of, or less than $fi ; that Is. merely
subsidiary currency supplementing the
pri sent silver certificates. The vacuum
thus produced in denominations above
$5 will be filled by gold certificates and
national bank notes. Of these denom
inations there are outstanding $502,
600,000 gold certificates and $494,200,000
bank notes.
In so far as additions to hank notes,
now approximately $fi00,000,000, shall
fill In this vacuum, an expansion of tho
amount of bank notes Is possible, rang
ing eventually from probably 20 per
cent to possibly 40 per cent Increase.
An Increase In bank notes naturally
suggests a larger demand for govern
ment bonds R9 security therefor. At
tho same time the possible speedy re
tirement, through the operation of tho
$9,000,000 per month clause, will doubt
less produce from timo to time a greater
supply of government bonds.

found Chultz and .carried htm out of
the burning house.

damaged. The entire loss Is estimated
at 1600, which was covered by insur
ance.
