other newa of bearish character developed,
which resulted In a still greater wvaknen.
Peverat of the leading conimlsslon houses
were free sellers. There waa also a cloae
aelllng by pit tradera, who were willing to
take the "ahort" side of the market. Much
of the late sHHng waa due to an Argentina

Reactionary Movement More Pro

loelag N Tone Is
NEW YORK. Jan. 15-The reactionary
movement of the market became more pro
nounced today and prices gave way rather
decisively. The fall was not precipitate,
however, and the measures of support
were not abandoned. There were points of
strength hero and there In the market.
The marking up of individual stocks was
Intended rather obviously for sustaining
effect against the profit taking sales which
were In progreas. The turn in the course
of the market was not attended by any
marked change In the tenor of the newa,
but was accounted for rather on technical
grounds, tho advance havtng run a suffi
cient length to bring out sales to take
profits while the buyers were not disposed
to follow prices to a higher level for the
present on the basis of such Improvement
in condition as has already occurred.
Evidences of the rapid accumulation of
banking facilities waa no less striking than
laat week. Interest rates were lower for
all classes of loans and the call loan rate
at the Stock. exchange showed a rapid ap
proach to absolute ease. No official Infor
mation Is obtainable as to the clearing
house loan certificate Issue. but it Is
admitted that theae Inatrumenta are In
progress of rapid retirement, the rate of
which has been sufficient since laat Satur
day's bank statement to Insure the total
extinction of the whole Issues In a few
days' time. The violence of the reflux of
funds to bsnking reserve centerg deprives
the discussion of the unfavorable course of
the government revenues of any disturb
ing effect. The growth of the deficit in
the government revenues which has now
reached 112,000.000 for the fiscal year, com
pared with a surplus over expenditures for
the same period last year of J5U .
while the free cash In the treasury Is lesa
than t8.000.0u0, makes It certain that large
calls must be made on the banks for sur
render of government deposits in a short
time. From other Indications It Is evident
that not only are banking deposits return
ing freely to New York, but thousands of
the circulation are contracting materially.
Current redemptions of national bank njtes
are running very large, the total thus far
In January, according to yesterday'a state
ment of the United tSates treasury opera
tions, having reached nearly 111.000.000, or
conaiderablv over Il.0ii0.0u0 a day. Today's
debt balance of 12.245.223 of the subtreaa
ury at the New York clearing house was
quite half of .it accounted for by hank
notes presented for redemption. These
notes are capable of relsaue by the replen
ishment of the 5 per cent redemption fund
with the treasury. The circulation, how
ever, has set in with some force, as shown
by the figures of the deposit of lawful
money at Washington by the banks for that
Piirpose. Yesterday's treasury statement
showed the total retirement thus far in
the present month to have reached the
sum of 12.347.032 and this figure marks
the first occaalon on which advaniace has
been taken of laat winter's provision of
the law extending the limit of the per
mitted retirement of bank notes In anv
one month from I3.000.0ft0 to 19,000.000. With
the month still but half gone It will be
seen that contraction of the enormous ex
pansion of circulation following the panic
has actively set In. Under these circum
stances withdrawal of government deposits
from the banka in moderate amounts Is
not expected to affect the money market
unfavorably. The significance of the Inflow
of money as an exhibit of trade contraction
received more attention In the prevailing
mood of the financial diatrlct today.
The continued reports of declining rail
road earnings and of retrenchment of ex
penditure by the railroads and other
great corporations was given considera
tion. The action expected tomorr3w on the
Amalgamated Copper dividend is awaited
with Interest In view of the example of
reduced disbursements on copper securities
which have been offered. Reading was bid
up with great determination In the last half
hour of the trading with a recovery of
more than Ita dividend and tho low prlcea
to1 which atocka fell in -the close of 1 he
selling were partly repaired in aympathy
with the public demonstration. The closing
tone, however, waa Irregular.

home. The young fellow intended to col
lect his own funersi expense when the
money came. But bis old dad was evi
