Supporting orders and short covering steadied prices immediately after the open ing, but offerings continued heavy and prices broke again. The severe decline. In the first hour resulted from heavy selling of both accounts. Many of the leading com mission houses were reported as having sold long stock and the way prices crum bled bespoke liquidation. A significant feature of the decline was the selling by brokerage houses with western connections. Liquidation continued in the market and prices yielded steadily without effect from the occasional supporting orders. The l ail roads which are enjoined from putting ad vance freight rates Into effect today still led the decline, but the whole list was ex ceedingly weak.

The conservative press defends the con clusions drawn by the American statesman, while the liberal papers oppose his deduc tions with equal rerlousness. But outside the questions of fact set forth the newspapers almost without ex ception challenge the propriety of a foreign guest of the city criticising the colonial policy of the empire. Of the comments of the conservative press the following are samples: The Glooe: "It was not the time nor tha place, nor was the ex-presldent the person, to display this particular form of Interest In the business of his hosts." The Pall Mall Gasette: "The unconven tional la Justif ed only by success. If he prefers realities to the properties where vital Interests are concerned, so does the Judgment of the British people."
