Wall Street Review.
New York, Nov. 23. The slump In
feteet and wire of AV. points just at
the close of the trading last evening
was unlveiaally regarded as a danger
signal. The speculative public came
down to 'Wall street this morning in
a mood receptive to suggestions of de
pression and reaction. The first sug
gestion came In the form of a further
break of : points in steel and wire.
Apparently no more effective point
could have been selected at which to
attack the market. This wass known
from previous experiences with this
particular stock. The lrcn and ste?l
trades are supposed to have inost to
hope, and, In fact, actually to havo
enjoyed most of the benefits of the
revival of business and industry. Tho
sudden weakness of stool and wire did
not raise any doubts of the reports
heretofore accepted to the prosperous
conditions in that trade and the excel
lent prospects for tho future, but It did
arouse serious apprehension of a de
termination on tho part of some of
the steel magnates to tnter upon a
course of plashing competition and to
unsettle tho trade, as they have al
ready proved themselves abundantly
able to do. The wide reaching effect
of such an outbreak of hostilities in
the steel trade may be measured by
tho degree of apprehension exhibited
by holders of long stock today. The
steel stocks themselves wore most Im
mediately affected, but heavy declines
aro shown In almost every department
of the stock list. The sharp effect
produced was due in part, of course,
to the extended speculative accounts
held all through the maiket.
The purpose of the bear maneouver
was palpably to dislodge thes hold
ings, They succeeded very well in do
ing this. As the decline In prices ex
tended, the titterings Increased. Those
stocks In which the recent speculation
for tho advance hns been most active
were nnturally tho most affected. The
local ti action stocks, the Grangers,
the I'acltics and Baltimore and Ohio
were the most prominent in the down
ward movement. Sugar was freely
sold on the cut in prices of refined
sugar and coffee, which seemed to
threaten a renewal of the trade war.
Jur the stock was very feverish at all
times. Practically the only effective
resistance offered to the decline was In
the early dealings. New York Central
and Chesapeake and Ohio showed con
tinued strength at that time, Now York
Central reporting 1 over last night.
An effort was alto made to boom AmaU
gnmatecl Copper on the occasion of Its
first being dealt In the unlisted depart
ment of tho exchange, but the first
price which was 99Va wah the hlg.vH:.
Tho price subsequently foil back to
'.iV;'t, compared with 0M tn the curb
market last night. The closing was
wavering and uncertain hut at con
siderably above the lowest for mnny
stocks, There was nothing In the
money market to causo upprehens! m,
rates ruling at 3l, per cent, or lower
practically all day, Total Eale3 to
day, 1,077,000 shares, There were firm
spots In the bond market but railroad
