NEW YORK, March 26. Today's stock
msrket defied any clear analysis. The sur
face facts upon which there is no room for
dispute are that there la undecioeo unpum
to sell securities ana an -m,.i
paralysis of demand. The conxequences to
prices were such as might be imagined.
That any urgent necessity was forcing
holders of securities to part with them did
not sppeart from any facts known to tn
public. The banks were not calling loans
and the withdrawn! of credits by money
lenders could not be ascribed as tne im
pelling cause of the slump. Of course nie
violent decline and the shrinkage In col
lateral caused a readjustment constantly
of loans and this shrlnkuge. of course,
forced vulnerable holdings upon the mnrket
In the course of the fall. But stringency
of money was not the primary cause In
forcing any liquidation. Bo far as the dread
or fnllures at tne coming sm-n nuumi
settlements In London and Berlin was con
cerned, the situation was admitted to bs
Improved over last week. Erly prices of
Americans from Iyindon showed some vio
lent rebounds from Saturday's list and
Berlin was reported to be buying American
securities In Ixindon. Reassuring sdvlces
from the highest quarters In the financial
world abroad were recelvei as to tne im
provement In the situation. Berlin was
alleged to have completed necessary ar
rangements for the approaching settlements
which hss been the dreaded point. Rumors
of an important financial house In Ixindon
being In flnnnclal difficulties were said to
be proved by the most careful investiga
tion. Large orders were expected in this
market to buy stocks for foreign account,
but with hardly more than a momentary
effect on prices.
one particular in wnicn lxinaon om orrer
sn acutely depressing fnctor was In the
disorder In Its metnl markets. Copper and
tin both showed heavy declines and specu
lative commitments In the copper mrtrket
were said to be Involved. The liirge specu
lation In copper securities In this market
has been nsed on the confident assumption
of sound conditions in the metal mnrket.
This confidence was shaken and the metal
Industrials proved extremely vulnerable nn
a consequence, Including the lTnlt"d States
Steel stocks. Itrge pooled holders of these
securities were believed to be touched by
the demoralized declines. Holders of Amal
gamated Copper and of United States Steel
seemed to be suddenly awakened to the
recollection of past performances In those
securities following the quick trnnsforma
tlon from the condition of great prosperity
In their trades to acute depression and rapid
shrinkage of earnings. The operations of
the bear contingent In the market are be
lieved to have taken on the proportions
of a saturnalia. Individual operations on
the short side In at least one instance were
believed to be of prodigious proportions.
These operations seemed to be entirely un
opposed on behalf of the controllers or out
siders In any property. A striking feature
of the sltuatlori. in fact, seemed to be the
consensus among the larger Interests that
supporting measures would be futile to
check the selling frenxy. Engagements of
gold in London for Import and additional
latitude allowed by. the secretary of the
treasury In the security for government
deposits, although promising to help the
money market through, were entirely
Ignored. Influential men In the banking
world did not hesitate to characterize the
selling as prompted by "Insane fear." In
formation from commission houses, on
which some selling orders were couched.
gave color to this characterization. Fears
of a coming prostration of business and of
the stripping of powers of management
and control from corporations were alleged
as principal grounds for the alarm. It was
late In the day before prices reached the
lowest level, but the actual closing reflected
a nervous feeling amongst the shorts In the
feverish rebounds, caused by their rush
to take profits.

BHKEl' The week starts fut with a lib
eral run of sheep, with the general market
In very satisfactory condition. Practically
everything In elaht changed hands very
readily at prices generally lOMlnc higher
than last week. As compared with the low
point last week the advance was even
more than that, so that all the decline of
last week has been recovered and the
market today wns as high as any time.
Oood lambs sold as high as t7.86. with the
feeder buyers paying as high as 37. OR for
stuff to take out and shear. There were
no good yearlings to moke a test of the
market on that kind, but wethers sold as
high as 16.26, the same stuff that brought
t6.1(l last week. While there were no
choice ewes in the yards, good ewes sold
as high as t'vilO, as agnlnst 35.40 for the
same stuff last week. It will le seen from
these prices that the market whs In a good
healthy condition, with packers evidently
wanting the good killers. It was In fact
the kind of a market that sellers like.

CATTLE Receipts of cattle, while not ea-
pecielly heavy, were liberal for the first
of the week and the strangest part of It all
was that trains arrived in good time so
that everything was in the yards by $
o'clock in the morning. Chicago reported
a very heavy run, with the market weak
It was one of those dull, lifeless markets
which are never satisfactory to anyone.
Buyers went out in the yards in fair sea
son, but the general disposition seemed to
be to wait for later reports from other sell
ing points, with the result that the first
half of the forenoon was passed with prac
tically nothing being done. In fact. It was
well toward midday before the market was
under way. The few cattle that Just hap
pened to please buyers sold at prices that
did not look much different from last week.
hut the general tendency of values, as was
to be expected when the trade is so dull,
Cows and heifers were also very slow
and dull. Here and there a seller who hap
pened to have just what a buyer wanted
thought that he got out at about steady
prices, but the general market was both
slow and weak.
There was no noticeable change In the
market on stockers and feeders. Specu
lators were pretty well cleaned up at the
close of last week and they were ready to
take on a fair number 01 cattle this morn
ing at prices generally steady, so far as the
good kinds at least were concerned.
