EASTERN MARKETS
NEW YORK STOCK MARKET
NEW YORK, Feb. 26. — The stagnant condition into which the stock
market fell today leaves it a sterile field from which to draw any lesson
bearing on general affairs, except as inferences may be deduced negatively.
The inference is fully justified, for instance, that speculative initiative has
died out of the market. No one is willing to express faith in future events
through the medium of commitments in the market. Irresolution and
apprehension are implied by this abstention. The scanty attendance at the
stock exchange gave its time to the discussion of the grounds for this atti
tude. The contents of the report of President Truesdale to the stock holders
of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad, to which much space
was given in the day's news, gave direction to this discussion. It was known
early in the day. that a message to congress from the president was to be
sent in during the day, and some repressive influence was assigned to this.
The neglected condition of the market was unrelieved after the abstract
of the message was printed. The usually active first hour of the market
furnished less than 100,000 shares for transfer; the second hour's business
dwindled to 50.000, and the noon hour to half of that. Professional room
traders themselves gave up in disgust their efforts to scalp a small fraction
of profit out of the sluggish price movement. Some stress was laid also
upon the departure for Europe during the day of J. P. Morgan for his
annual spring tour as an indication that no important developments in the
financial world were in expectation. Professional operators drew freely
on suppositions regarding Mr. Morgan's activities as a motive force for
market movements and his absence from communication with Wall street
cuts off a fertile .source of niaterial for professional operations. The meeting
and adjournment of the Erie directors without taking action on the dividends
on the two preferred classes of stocks was not a surprise in view of the
heavy declines in earnings of the company, the preliminary step taken in the
declaration of the last dividends in scrip and the failure of authorization
of that action up to this time by the New York public service commission.
The Erie stocks hardened slightly after the nonaction of the directors
became known. The sluggish movement of prices showed the same tendency
as for several days to retrace its early course during the latter portion of
the day. : 'A'--. ": !
Bonds were heavy. Total sales, par value, $1,812,000. United States
bonds were unchanged on call.
