SHIPMENTS OF GOLD.
ANOTHER LARGE EXPORTATION
Ono of the Syndlcnto Houc Makes n
Tllg Consignment In Rl 84,000,000
nro Withdrawn J. I'lcrpont Morgan
Says tho Syndicate Is Stilt Standing by
the Government and Will Knko tlood
, Dig (Sold Engagements.
Ni:w YonK, Sept 14. Tho engage
ment of 2,500,000 in gold by Lazard &
Frercs for export to-day created a pro
iound Bcnsatlon in Wall street. The
fact that Messrs. Lazard and Freres
are important members of tho gov
ernment bond syndicate Increases tho
already great surprise in the matter of
.shipment. A member of tho firm
made tho following statement to a
reporter: "Wo believed that during
the first half of September n tulliclcnt
amount of grain and cotton and other
bills would have been offering, and
that the necessity bf exporting this
gold would thus bo averted. Our ship
ment of gold is nn imperative neces
sity in order to fulfill our business ob
ligations with Europe. Wo believe
that it will be a temporary expedient
and that within the next fow weeks
plenty of bills will bo offering and thnt
everything will come around all
right." The firm recite the low prices
ruling for breadstuffs, the slow move
ment of cotton and the fair supply of
that staple already in European hands
as causes for tho lack of bills of ex
change and the noccssity of gold ship
ments. Other engagements for shipment to
morrow swell the aggrcgato to S 1,500,
000. Of tltis sum, $3,500,000 was drawn
from the sub-treasury tills morning.
The Hanover National bank depos
ited SSOO.OjO in gold at tho sub-treasury
in exchange for greenbacks. Tho
National Park bank later deposited
31,500,000, and smaller sums aggre
gating nearly 81,000,000 wcro depos
ited. There wcro rumors that tho
bond syndicate would deposit a large
sum this afternoon.
A reporter of tho Associated Press
called upon Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan,
the head of the government bond syn
dicate, and asked as to the truth of tho
rumors of the dissolution of the syndi
cate. Mr. Morgan replied: "The
bond syndicate is still in tho field.
There has been no rupture. Tho syn
dicate will continue to do all it can to
help maintain the treasury gold re
serve at 8100.000,000. Tho obligation,
of the syndicate expired, however,
some tlmo ago."
Sub-treasury officials express confi
dence that tho impairment of the
treasury reserve by the gold exporters
will be made good by the syndicate.

asked: "Is this 'rubbish and imclenn.

"My friends, there is ono objection
to tho law, if there wore no others,
which must mttko its permanency Im

It will contain several interesting facts
In connection with tho transaction
which are ns yet only known to tho

portant problem tho secretary will
have to deal witli is that which
looks to tho re lof of the treas

that it is going to bo a very dlfilcult
task to suggest a remedy which will
meet tho approval of tho Republican
house, with Reed, a candidnto for tho
presidency, in tho pcakcr's chair. It
probably will bo tho policy of the Re
publicans to confuso, rather thnn un
tangle, tho financial complications
during the nnxt congress, for they are
counting upon making considerable
political capital out of tho money ques
