A relapse to the listless conditions of last month was the most striking feature of today's market. Dealings fell away by 30 t 40 par cent In comparison with thooperatlons of recent days and the number of Issues traded in suffered corresponding reduction. t There was a concurrent diminution or pro fessional activity In ultra-speculstlve stocks. probsbly tn consequence of the failure to enlist public Interest In that quarter. Oen-, rat newa pertaining to tna nnanciai situs- tlon ranged from favorable to the reverse, the delay In a settlement of the armed neu trality mitigating against shippings and kindred Issues. Such changes as occurred In prices of Important storks represented tittle more than the caprices of the trading element. United States Steel and allied shares were steady to strong most of the session, with coppers, oils, motors, sugars and tha usual equipments, utilities and fertilisers. The mora ewtatantlal advances, very few. of which were fully retained1, Included Texas Company, which rose 4 to 234, with S each for International Agricultural, Chem ical Preferred and American Cotton OH Preferred, and I to I points for Gulf States Steel, Mexican Petroleum, American Smelt ing, .International Paper Preferred, Peoples' Oas, and Ohio Oas, th latter extending tie gsin to 6 jpolnts, at 109, just before the close.
