New V01 If, Mnv S. Tho stock innikct
today olleied the novel siicctaclo of 11
bear panic and a. bull panic In progiess,
side- by side. The bear panic In North
cm Pacltlc was the impelling cause of!
the elcmoialied iitsh to sell othyt
stoiks, which was held In check for n
Utile aftei the astounding opening in
Noilheiti I'acilic, butAvhlell gained al

liquidation. uich as often culminate .i
jioiiod of ovei spi( illation, but It was
evident that the holdeis of long stock
weie holding their stocks tenaclouslv
and weie waiting to be actually fenced
out. Thi punishment which iv.is being
Inflicted on the shoits In tho Northern
1'acllie was so dlstiessing an oxnniplu
as to keep tlie beats In a timid frame!
of mind and they hesitated to attack
the m.uket. The suppoit which canm
in cm tlie opening dip helped to en
1 outage the bulls and intimidate' the
beais, but the liquidation .seemed so
laige that the beais took courage nud
attacked the maiket after midday and
seemed ileh 1 etui 11s. As the lccesslou
in pi ices leached tho ten point line the
decline- gatbeicd foiee, show lug the
dislodging of long lines of long stock
bv the wiping out of margins. A sciu
tinv ol a stock table will show the.
huge number of stocks -whose declines
extended to between ten and twenty
points, with the tesultlng wiping out
ot tli" oicliiuuv m.ugln.
The chaotic condition Into which the
m.uket was thrown heiame al.iiinlng
in the nitei noon, but the detei mined
suppoit which dev eloped and the 11
sultant rallies, which leached as much
as eight points in one or two Instances,
took away the effect to a paitial .ex
tent ot the disoidcily chop In piices
and even induced cxpiessions tiom
some of the mote confident bulls that
tlie health ot the innikct was g-ieatlv
itnpioved as a lesult of the da.v'.s hiip
enings. The apuently unlimited buv
Ing ordei.s which appealed In United
States Steel pie foiled, tvhen the de
cline had touched 1- points and the ic
siiltlng Lilly of S1.. points, gave some
of the bull .speculalois the couiage to
