mary of the fatal accidents that have

demanded by the public interest to prevent
needless alarm and panic over tlie tempo
rary adratico In foreign exchange. This
may be otic of the causes that
, Influenced the Secretary of the Treas
ury in l.ssuing the call, but it N
not the main cause. It was known several
days ago, and before the export movement
had set In. that a call of bonds was being
considered, and It was stated in these dis
patches last Wednesday night that a call
would he made early in January. The fact
1 is that the larce and steadily accumulating
cah balance In the Treasury made a call of
bonds Imperative, and tho action of the
Secretary was hastened by the d content
with hb'jvolicy tn this particular, which he
and the President daily heard uttered by
Coticressmeti, and which was finally voiced
by Mr. Beck in his recent speech in tho
Senate. It is pretty certain that a call for
bond-, would have been made had Mr. Beck
not made his speech, but it Is doubtful if
the call would have been issued until ike
condition of the Treasury after January 1
was ascei tamed. Upon that date nearly
610,000.000 became due and payable for in
terest, and it was originally determined not
to i'Siie a call for bonds until there should
be slcns of the return to the Treasury of
this January output, but the public agi
tation alluded to. and the steady accumula
tion of the Treasury balance, and the pres
ent movement of gold to Kurope. combine!
to induce the Secretary toj tissue the
call. Of the SlOi.OOO.OOO of 3 ivr cent,
bonds now outstanding, tin Treasury holds
for the National banks SH4.000.000. so
tli.C of the bonds called fully seven-tenths
will be surrendered for redemption by the
banks, thus necessitating a substitution of
other Itotiils for these surrendered, or a cor
responding reduction in the.r circulat
iinr note?. Secictary .Manning holds
that tho sinking fund requires for the
current fiscal year about S:N,()00,000. In
conversation to-day the Secre'aiy said that
it would not be prudent to call bonds for so
lare an amount at one time and therefore
he concluded to make a call now. This
would indicate that the Secretary intends to
issue font calls of S10.000.000 each in ad
dition to that Issued yesterday between now
and June 1. The condition of the Treasury
at tin close of biis.ness to-d ly. the Ia:
day of flit mouth ami tho year, will show
an improvement of several million dollars
over December 1. Tlii receipts thus far
have, exceeded tho expenditures over Si,
000.000. and it is likely that the dtbt state
ment, to be issued on Saturday, will show a
reduction, ''so called," of al least 0.000,000.
