Market Conditions The Latest Wire Reports on Cotton, Bonds, Stocks, Etc. STATE OF FERMENT IN STOCK MARKET Restoration of Normal Conditions Likely to Be Very Slow. NEW YORK, March 12. Develop ments of the week in the financial. dis trict and the leading commodity mar kets strengthened the belief held in well-informed banking circles that res toration of normal conditions in com merce and industry is likely to be of very slow growth. The stock market was In a constant state of ferment, oach succeeding segsion showing great er activity. This was largely to the detriment of quoted values, however, many of the more conspicuous issues repeating or exceeding last year's minimum prices. Estimates of the relative proportion of long and short sales differed widely but the tone of the market in the later dealings clearly indicated that shorts had succeeded in their efforts to dis lodge weakened holdings and provoke fresh liquidation. The dominent factor In the decline centered around the railroad situation In relation to the forthcoming nation wide reduction of wages. Returns of tho railroads for tho first mont'i of tho year were extremely disappointing and figures for February diminution was due to smaller grain and cotton shipments and the decline of steel and iron delivery. Failure of the London conference and the consequent occupa tion of Germany by the allied forces was another adverse influence. The immediate effect of this development was lss obvious in the foreign ex change market, however, than in the set-back which threatens this coun try's European trade. Reduction of the rate on British ex chequer bills was the one hopeful note sounded abroad and gave rise to dis cussion of a possible lower Bank of England rate. The latter move, it was thought, might i have a very direct bearing upon the attitude of the fiscal authorities who control interest and discount rates in this market. BEARS TO COVER IN STOCK MARKET Enforced Liquidation Effected tional Price Impairment. Addi- NEW YORK, March 12 Bears were driven to cover in the .stock market today after an early period in which their operations, coupled with further enforced liquidation effected additional price Impairment. Contrary to recent days, rails were comparatively strong, aside from Reading, whose reactionary course was attended by more signs of disapproval of the proposed coal seg regation plan. Transcontinental rail rallied moderately from their heavi ness 'of yesterday's depression con verging mainly about the oils, steels and equipments.

Sales amount ed, to 525,000 shares. Striking features of the clearing house statement embraced a large con traction $62,345,000 in actual loans and discounts; an increase of almost $27,000,00 in members reserves at the federal bank and a gain of about $30, 000,000 in actual cash swelling the ex cess reserves to almost $34,700,000, the largest total reported so far this year PRICE OF COTTON IS SENT LOWER Reported Bank Failure in London Re sponsible for Early Selling. NEW ORLEANS, March 12. The price of cotton was sent to lower levels today by selling .that started on the opening and was in evidence until after mid-session when realizing by shorts became heavy enough to check the downward movement and brought about small recoveries. At the lowest the trading months were IS to 22 points under the final prices of yes terday. At this level May stood at 11.06. The close showed net losses on the day of 15 to 16 points with May at 11.12. The bank failure reported at London was responsiblo for most of tho early selling. Covering by shorts started on the initial decline but it was not in sufficient volume to affect prices until Well into the session. After the effect of the London news wore off, fresh offerings were induced by telegrams from New England telling of curtail ment among the cotton mills of that section by sales of only 60,000 pieces of print cloths in Fall River this week and by the news of the failure of a shirt manufacturing concern in Phil adelphia. Much rain over the cotton region was regarded as unfavorable and likely to delay plowing for the new crop but it caused comparatively lit tle buying although it helped to steady the tone in the late trading.

There was a further decline in the cotton market today. The reported failure of a London banking and mercantile firm emphasized unsettled conditions abroad. These features caused con tinued liquidation by early week buy ers and the price of May broke to 11.38 ov the lowest touched since the rally of last week. It later worked up to 11.55 and closed at 11.50 with the general list closing barely steady at a decline of 8 to 12 points. The market opened steady at an advance of 5 .points on March but generally to 12 points lower. There was scattered southern selling com bined with local and Wall street liquidation which was probably pro moted by reports of an unsettled test ing of irregularity in the stock mar ket. There was considerable covering for over the week end but before the decline was checked active months showed net losses of 20 to 22 points with July selling at 11.8'. The fact that May sold through 11.50 which had bee the point o fresistance pre viously during the week, probably en couraged some of the local selling, but the demand from shorts was sufficient to check the decline during the mid dle of the morning and there were ral lies of several points from the lowest in the latter trading with July selling up to 12.03. This improvement was not fully maintained and there seemed to be a little more southern selling just before the close. Fall River sales for the-week were estimated at 60.000 pieces and curtailment of production at 120,000. Manchester cables report ed no improvement in the demand for goods and said strong protests were being made against the increased duty on imports of cotton goods by India.
