of Portland's best aud most popular

Market Not Affected
by Rumania's Action
Now York, Aug. 28. The New York
Evening Sun financial review today
Transactions were light in volume in
the greater part of today's session, the
busiucss representing to a great extent
the operations of the professional ele
ment and the price changes reflecting
as a rule bearish sentiment incident to
the uncertainties involved in the rail
road labor controversy. The street was
favorably impressed with the report
that Rumania has entered the war on
tho side of the entente powers, but as
a market influence it fell flat, "as all
considerations of a favorable character
were set aside for the time in favor of
the labor situation in Washington, at
least insofar as their use as an immedi
ate argument on stocks was concerned.
Firmer price tendencies developed in
the last hours under the lead of Mer
cantile Marine issues, which exhibited
Early losses failed to bring in sell
ing orders in volume while in the promi
nent issues the lightest sort of buying
was effective in bring about recoveries.
Efforts to drive the rails materially
lower was not successful but in such
stocks as Reading, Union Pacific, Erie,
New York Central and Baltimore ft
Ohio, losses of a point or more were
recorded in the early dealings.
Notwithstanding the heaviness dis
played at times in today's market there
was no particular evidence of uneasi
ness in the financial district.
