New : York, Sept.. 17.—Speculative sentiment was depressed temporarily j in the stock market by weakness of j special IBSUCS, reflecting liquidation ot! an apparent urgent-character. Selling j orders in closely held stock were ex- L ccuted at declines of two to five points. The market strengthened at the close. Sales approximated 175,000 shares. Bidding up of selected stocks such as Hie oils, was without stimulating effect on the general list, tho restricted money supply continuing, a factor adverse to bullish operations. Rails displayed a fairly good tope throughout the morning, the. bulk of the trading being in sharesNeommonly supposed to be under pool domination. Texas Company and Mexican petroleum rallied 2 lo 3 points, from their earlier low prices. Prefunetory changes, fractional declines for the most part In the standard issues, equipments, tobaccos and marines, made the opening of today's stock market virtually without fea- I ture. Decided weakness developed with the first half hour, however, heavy hammering of United Suites steel carrying that, issue, one sales of big blocks, doi#n to 107%, nearly a point under yesterday's closing quotation. Tills pressure had its effect on other shares. notably Bethlehem steel, United States alcohol. Baldwin locomotive and American Sumatra tobacco, which sustained losses of 1 to 2 points. General motors suffered a decline of five points, attributed to continued liquidation, and Texas Company relinquished about half of yesterday's sharp rise. In tho absence? or any more definite reason, unconfirmed reports wjilen were circulated to tho effect that the German emperor had abdicated or was about to do so, were considered in some quarters to be responsible for a hurried covering movement during Iho final hour, which carried up prices substaniully. United States steel advanced one point beyond yesterday's clofte and Canadian Pacilie four points. The closing today was firm. New York Money. iL.
