Wealth and Certain of Their Sort Are Believed to Have Discerned ant Element of Danger to Their Interests In the Apprehension of a Revival of Political Activity Against Corporations and Wealth Brought About by Recent Exposures New Yorki Sept 23The iHsorfler of the transactions at the stock ex change Tuesday during the demoral Ized break in prices Was not greater than the excessive confusion and con tradiction of the opinions held as to the causes of the collapse That it was proof amounting to demonstra tion of the flctitiois and excessive na ture orihe previous advance was agreed to without dispute There has been general admission of this fact however for weeks past and also gen eral agreement as to the responsibil ity of groups of powerful capitalists- for the advance The sensati6ifalcol lapse which piees have undergone has not altered the conviction as to the source of the operations trjuich ad vanced them previously but the mo Lives which prompt the abandonment of the previous position offer a sub ject for the most divergent opinions Nothing Indicates urgent necessity for liquidation with surplus reserves of the banks still above 50000000 in spite of the inroads made upon them and with call loans easily procurable at 1 per cent or slightly above This strengthens a conviction that the leaders of the recent speculation must have been entrenched with supplies which would have protected them from pressure of leaders which would pre cipitate any such urgent selling on the market as is now seen When it is considered that the purpose attributed to the movement to advance prices was to help restore confidence with a ylefv to ilattnttstsluess rjevivat and Purifier the intended flotation of new capital issues the question arises whether that purpose has been aban doned or regarded as futile From the standpoint of the stock market cam paign considered wholly as such its success in attracting any general public demand for securities and a dis tribution of stocks at the high prices Is doubted by all close observers of the market On the contrary the rise In prices had the growing effect of bringing to market holdings of an in vestment or partly investment char acter both from home and foreign sources The necessity of accepting these offerings in order to maintain prices proved a growing burden to the efforts of the supporters of the mar ketoIt is not believed however that it had become impracticable with the resources credited to those supporters That the bitterness of the revived agitation against corporations and the- public resentment at the supposition of corporation influence in politics has proved a shock to a feeling of securi ty which had grown up amongst groups of very wealthy capitalists is an in terpretation of the present market de cline much heard The prolonged rise In prices was accompanied almost con tinually by public expressions on the part of prominent financiers that pub lic sentiment toward corporations was changing and that the hostility had spent its force The recent tone of the political campaign and the sensation created by the ArchboldForaker correspondence has shaken this confidence amongst capi talists In connection with this clement of the situation there was the openly expressed suspicion on the stock exchange floor that the disorder in the market was a deliberate purpose of forces which had fostered theprevk ous advance with the object of pointing a warning the dangers to be ape prehended from a revival of political activity against corporations and of upward of 100000 shares inTuesday8 market were ascribed to brokers who have had the largest share in executing the orders which carried forward the long advance in prices Blocks of stocks were hurled upon the market from suchsources tinge after time when prices showed any disposition to rally With the mar ket seemingly lacking all support the bears operated very recklessly and their buying to cover

ticket he has made his campaign a crusade against Mr Bryan based on the charge that Mr Bryan is not a friend of the South The question of Mr Braus friendship tor them is not one for them is notone which muc4concernpolitics have given him little opportunity for practical demonstra tion of his goodwill but the fact 1 that he has overlooked no opportu nity isan evidence that with Mr Bryan as president the Southwill have no ause to complain of un fair treatment The amusing feature of the Watson performances is that while he is accusing Mr Bryan of want of friendship for the South he is assuming that the South has forgot that when Kiefarof Ohio attempted to have South s rei re semaiions in Congress cut down he found in Watson some of lis strongest supporters Watson de Glaring that it makesno difference Soath or hte Southern people whether the representation in Con gress or the electorin college s reducedor notMr Watsons be lated zeal for thc South and its people against lhe
