The decline was attributed to what speculative sources conceived as an impaired technical position rather than news developments, although domestic political events were cited as a reason for some buying caution. Persistent heaviness of steels and certain popular specialties helped to bring out selling in the late proceedings.. Rails were irregular. A few gold mine issues moved up in the final hour.
