New York, Sept. 30. The stock mar
ket, which closed utterly demoralized
yestoiday as a result of stringent mon
etary conditions and other unfavorable
circumstances, made a sensational re
covery today. The chief causes for the
complete teveisal were the action of
the secietaiy of the treasury In re
moving the lestraint on reserves, and
persistent reports from various quar
tets that the coal strike had at last
reached the point where negotiations
for a settlement were actually under
way. For this last rumor there ap
peared to bo little or no foundation,
according to the indhylduul and collect
ive statements of the leading operators
made after the regular weekly meeting.
Another Influence for better prices
was the decline In call money rates,
though dut lug the morning loans were
made as high as 19 per cent. A large
pait of the day's loans was made
aiound 10 per cent, and the rate at the
clop went down to 2,but -this was

at that figure. ,
