supposed leader of the upward move-
ment was about to take avacatlon and
enhanced by the belief of many opera-
tors that its culmination had been
reached, quotations for all months
collapsed to the extent of from 16 to

ruled in the pit. No failures were re-

throughout tho market.

short seiling. Then "shoris" begun to

Only once before in. the history o*

The close was about steady.
The day opened with a sharp break
in prices under tho influence of a
generally circulated rumor of settle-
ments by short interests, and since yes-
terday. This sent quotations down a
half cent per pound, but a denial of the
rumor brought about a substantial re-
covery Barely had the market stead-
led after this movement, when tho re-
port of Mr. Sully's intention to take a
vacation became current, and prices
again started downward.
It was inferred that this meant the
successful disposal of his interests and
the abandonment of his campaign, and
when he was quoted to the effect that
he was about to take a two weeks va-
cation the downward movement be-
came a panic, selling orders poured® in
upon brokers and the market went to
pieces, quotations melting away five
and ten points at a time. In fifteen
minutes of this panic, with every bro-
ker a seller and none a buyer, prices
fell vertlcaiiy almost a cent a pound

hour registetred a decline of a cent and
