; Interstate Commerce Commission's De
cision Has Apparently Spent Its
i Force as Price Changes in the Early
Dealings Indicated This Morning
By Associated Press.
New York, pec. 19, (Wall Street-
Price changes in to-day 's earlv dealings
suggested that yesterday's Interstate
Commerce Commission decision has
spent its force, for a time at least. The
opening was exceedingly narrow with
?n-I volume of business, mostly in
100-share lots. Canadian Pacific and
its subsidiary, ' '6oo,'' were prominent
tor one point advances, with two points
for Delaware and Hudson. These were
partly offset by fractional declines in
some of the better known shares. !Bv
the end of the first half hour a firmer
tendency was noted.
Trading dragged along for the bai
lee of the session, the market develop
ing no special feature. The overturn
was the smallest of any day since the
resumption of operations, many specula
tive all ares being unquoted. The clos
ing was irregular.
The only notaible featnre of to-day's
two-hour market wae its extreme nar
rowness and dullness Interest again
converged albout the Interstate Com
merce Commission's decision, but that
even had only a passring influence upon
the stocks of railroads directly affect
ed. Some earlv gains were lost in the
final dealings.. Bonds were steady.
Summary of the Week
New York, Dee. i9._The most im
portant event of a wdek replete with
interesting developments was the de
cision of the Interstate Commerce Com
mission to grant a Ave per cent, rate in
crease to the eastern railroads. The an
nouncement of the •commission's action
was made early yesterday at a time
when stocks were manifesting their
greatest weakness. It was effective in
arresting the decline and 'bringing about
some material recoveries.
Trading in the full list of stocks
approved by the exchange began on
Tuesday and was accompanied by a
more or less irregular movement. Prices
moved upwards smartly at the outset,
•but noon receded on moderate offer
ings. There appeared to be a small in
vestment demand, but this was offset
by persistent short selling, Sentiment
was rather more cheerful until the lat
ter part of tihe week when reduced div
idends by such important railroads as
Michigan Central, Louisville and Nash
ville and Atlantic Coast liine were an
nounced. The foreign situation also
helped to dampen the ardor of the ."bull
Conditions In the steel trade were
unchanged, except that some increase of
foreign business is expected early in
the coming year. The larger manufac
turers are considering ttheir wage ached
i ulee for that period, with indications of
a redaction. The foreign trade situation
•continues to favor this country, large
ly as a result of increased «oW«n ex

Republican Leaders Hastily Call of
Conference at Which It Was Ex
pected to Prepare Slate
(Special to the Star-Independent.)
Philadelphia, Deo, 19. —-Senator»
Penrose, McNiuhol and Vare failed
yesterday, to carry out their program
to slate the Spealter of the next House
of Representatives, and prospects
brightened considerably for a battle
over the position at the 'Republican
caucus on January 4. The conference
scheduled for the day was hurriedly
called off during the morning and no
reasons made public.
In some quarters it was stated that
the leaders feared the resentment of
OovernoT-eleet Brumbaugh against
this resort to old-fa«bio»od methods of
bossism. In other circles it was report
ed that the meeting was c,adled off to
avoid the direct protest of Sonatoi
Vare against the selection of Richard
J. Baldwin and thus stave off a threat
ened factional light. Senator Penrose
announced during tho day thiat he waf
in an agreemont with Senator Olivei
and other western State leaders by I
whirfh the Speakership would go to thl
country districts. To this announce,
ment, Senator Vare later oiguifieantlj'
declared that the "city or country '
iasue had no place in titan Speakership
question and that he would support
William H. Wilson if he should dcclar«
his candidacy.
Values la Exhaust Steam
A common error among plant owners
is to ascribe undue economy to tthe heat
that may 'be carried in water resulting
from tho condensation of steam. Thev
conversely greatly underestimate the
heat carried in exhaust steam. As a
matter of fact, the heat in a pound of
water at 212 degrees is only 380 Brit
ish thermal units reckoned" above the
freezing point, whereas in a pouhd of
steam at the same temperature the
heat units number 1,160. Hence if this
steam is condensed in a radiator it
gives out 970 heat units, and the drip
will contain 180 heat units.—Engineer
