Wall Street Review.
New York, July 15. Today's stock
market was a striking Instance of a fa
vorite Wall street aphorism that tho
expected never happens. Tho general
expectation In Wnll street this morn
ing was of a day of continued liquida
tion nnd violent declines In prices. As
a matter of fact the first smashing
blow dealt to the market by the accu
mulation of selling orders over Sunday
which were executed nlmost simultan
eously when tho president's gavel fell
mado trie low prices of tho day. There
wns gradual recuperation during tho
whole of the remainder of the day ex
cept for some fresh recessions at the
close when the room traders were tak
ing their profits on the day's rally.
A scrutiny of tho day's net changes
reveals some considerable net losses,
but also very sharp net gnlns, while
tho sharpest losses at the opening were
reduced to unimportant proportions or
entirely wiped 'out. The natural in
ference from thcie events Is that a
considerable portion of tho selling,
which was necessitated by tho unfa
vorable development of tho labor situ
ation in the steel trade was effected
last week while reassuring opinions
were being doled out to the public of
the extreme probability of the dispute
reaching the open issue of a strike. But
the unltlated bidders of tho United
States steel holdings undisposed of
mado a notable demonstration this
morning In their urgent nttempts to
unload and ncccpt their offerings. A
considerable part of the liquidation In
the steel stocks came from London,
where In fact, declines below Satur
day's New York parity of 4i for Uni
ted States steel common nnd 6 for
United States steel pieferred had been
recorded before the opening here. The
New York prices did not get ns low
ns those for London, but the extreme
opening decline for the common was
4Vi on running sales of 20,000 shares,
and of the preferred, B points.
Tho rally In tho market was very
feverish and erratic until tho opening
prices in the corn market disclosed the
weakness of that cereal on the pros
pects of rain In the corn belt. The
continued weakness of corn was an In
fluential factor In the sustained recov
ery of stocks. The opening declines
