PUZZLINGEVENTS
INSTOCK MARKET
NEW YORK, Jan. 18. — It is a
rarity In" stock "market- experience
to see so violent a price 'movement
"arrested so completely and sud
denly, as was the case today.
\u25a0 The departure from precedent
proved completely mystifying to
the professional trading element.
Their efforts to conjecture what
lay beneath the surface of the
market resulted in an exceedingly
confused and irregular movement."
Time and again a fall in price
was arrested by the appearance
of determined buying and bidding.
On the other hand the demand
repeatedly died out in course, of
the numerous rallies and left the
market dull and neglected without
apparent power of initiative.
The seeming lack of aggressive
ness lulled the uncovered bears
into a* sense of security, and they
showed no signs of anxiety to
cover their short contracts until
late in the day. The unyielding re
sistance developed to the fall in
prices by that time began to get
on the nerves q¥ the bears', and
their covering operations caused
an upward reaction that put a
more natural complexion on the
market.
Prices dropped back abruptly U>
the lowest of the . day, when the
Hill stocks broke in the last hour.
Foreign selling of stocks was an
important 'influence in the early
unsettlement.
The fall in British consols today
and yesterday has covered nearly
a full point. In ordinary circum
stances such fears of socialistic
government policies as are pro
fessed by the I^ondon financial
world, coupled with the consider
able decline in prices of American
securities which has occurred,
would he expected to divert Brit
ish capital into American invest
ments.
The unloading of foreign spec
ulative holdings proves more in
fluential at the moment than any
sut-h investment takings. This
contributed materially to the
morning- dip in prices, which put
some of the market leaders to
prices lower than the lowest of
yesterday.
In the northwestern granger
group there was some evidence
of support until the Hill stocks
slumped late in the day. There
was a revival of rumors of the
possibility of dividend reductions
in the group which have been
prevalent for several days.
Another spell of weakness in
Rock Island accompanied the elec
tion of Kock Island representa
tives to the Lehigh Valley board.
It was regarded as a disappoint
ment that the new order of things
in that direction did not go fur
ther.
The power of resistance was
considerably weakened toward
the end of the day, and prices
ended at the lowest in sympathy
with the break in the Hills. Money
continued to work easier and dis
count rates abroad declined as
well.
Bonds were easy. Total sales,
par value, $2,845,000.
United states bonds were un
changed on call.

exchange and at the close •of the call buyers
were offering 36c, but the bids failed to bring

were 2c higher on sales at 36c and prices for
the under grades were marked up on bids. The

Hay and Feed-tuff*
Receipts of hay are lighter, those, yesterday
belnjr only 279 tons. The market waa dull and
weaker. The circular of Somers & Co. gays;
\u25a0'Shipments of hay hare been yery heavy dur
ing tbe last week, the total amounting to S,7"i>
tons In comparison with 3SDO last week an<i
2.25<) for the week preceding-. These are the
heartest receipts since the Utter part of Sep
tember, at which time there was a great rush
of hay to market from the fields because of
threatening weather. \u25a0 Vnder tb.ese heavy ship
ments the. market has been weak on mo*t sra.ic-j.
but under the circumstances has held up renmrk
ably well. Already this month we ha»e received
about as much hay as was shipped to this mar
ket .In the month "of December, so It Is evident
that the Improvement In the demand that was
anticipated has n-curred.
"So much of the choicer RTade:* of hay were
rushed to market early In the season that n>.w
there is very little of tnU grade to be seen here.
Because of this very little hay is bHmt sold at
the higher range of prices, most everything go-
Ing at the. intermediate range. •
"The outside' demand for hay continues, es
pecially with . alfalfa, and it Is expected that
this movement will obtain throughout the re
mainder.of the season.
"The most Interesting trade feature f> (*•
reported at the moment is the imjuiry for hay
now. coming from Nevada. Some districts up
very short of hay there and It now sterns pos
sible'that considerable <]uantitie» will have to ho
shipped to that state during the spring." . ;
