Hast Prices of stocks turned reactionary in the last hour, after moderate early strength. In the early afternoon, the advance, which beginning in the rail group had swept into coppers, oils, amusements and miscellaneous groups, became plainly labored.

Bonds moved more or less with stocks, there having been frequent periods of profit-taking during the day. However, some of the lower-grade rails, which stand to benefit most by early adoption of the Reconstruction Finance measure, maintained a substantial part of their advance. There have now been six days of recovery in second and low-grade bonds and uninterrupted gains resulted in realizing sales.
