WsshinBti-n. Fob. 31.?There were rumors to

ti**' *'fre MM!t brottdcas I <>v'''' ?''*' country?which
v^ it that tho Cabinet al its meeting to-day
formally resolved not t.> issue bonds, nu matter
tilt tho tituatioii or necessity might be. lt run
u itated up"!' tn.* highest authority, to nae a
HI but easily untrlerstood expression, thal there
? not tho least foundation for th,' raamr. Tho
^biDet. it i> true, discussed tho flnaneial rdtua
m, a* it has done at nearly every ineeting
(itkiP th*' last two months, or when tho exports
,? gold tir>t began t** attract genera] attention
?it it reached no conclusion as to any policy
ti iv adopted In ?>t h. ? i words, the Adminia
I t-ttion, for obvious reasons, belier**- la tho old
I ,dage thnt it i- noi wise to jump until u ditch
j^a t>e.n retti hoi.
It ouriht to l*o borne in inin*!, _?*reorer, thnt.
liter all, it i> the Seeretary of tho Treasury
tod not the Cabinet who xviii bo held responsible
(or the conduct of tho National finances. Ii
k- eomn.ii'' a blunder, be it is who xviii bo im
s-aehed hy Congress and not xvhat i* vaguely
^lled "tho Administration.*1 Ho. therefore, xviii
determine what i- to ho doro in ease <>f an
emtrgenry. Hy this iho Idea is not meant to
le eonx'ryed thal Secretary Foster is not in a*9
(ord with tho views hold ly President Harrison.
On the contrary, it may ho said that they aro
oont thor-'ii-hlv agreed in tho ends to h.* at?
tuned, tliBu.-li tlioy may have hal dilToronoos
of opinion in th** past as to matters of detail.
"?"hc-se have now, however, disappeared, and it
n?v conti'lo.'itly be stated th.u nothing will be
done that has not th" nnqualiHed approval of
both th?? President nnd Secretary Foster.
Tis situdtioi is viewed to-day by tho latter
Sith h? concorn than it waa a week or two ago.
It is true that tho gtoik of gold In tho vaults of
th, Jr.a-arv has dwindled doxvn in th.' last xvo-k
ti Iff. than lull what it xvas i.-,, day- ago, bulk,
tn the ether hand, there are also si_ns wliich
jivg promise of e iming improvements. F it
one, th* rate of foreign exchange has ri-o-n, ahow
iag that it has I'.'f'ii" lees profitable to ahlp
gold to Euro'--. This greatly encourages Secrt***
twy Foster, xxl,, i- l,y no ui**an- to i>.ntddered
the Tictim of a ssngulne temperament. Ho
view*, wi'h greater composure, too, tho prospects
ot the gold re? rvo fill ini_ to mar or even behm
the* traditional !*?""..,""<i than ho formerly
did, believine. a- 'nany ".hors do. that shauld the
reserve _mtu*it to >*9l-,0t>9,9,i0, it would not
neceffvirily result in gold being quoted iit a
premium. That tni-f rt uno. for ns sn li it xviii
be regarded hy eveiybody, xxiii not ,lop.*,id, in the
opinion **f Ueeretaiy Fester, upon th*' (set tbal
the Treasury carries a million or two more *?r lem
of reserve in it- vaults, btit upon th.- xvant of
roniMfnce xvhi'-li, it. a temporary li', ol fear, dii.'l
en.tti* eoutrol in any eo'ninr'ial community, may
be e\hibirtrd hy a comparatively -mall -sody of
men.
Jt msy be said, too, that neither the President
Soi the Secr'taiy of tho Treasury at any time
ss>assrf tam uXmsUOO, a? hns he-^n mn iriii.lv charms]
In btsUla papers, in _ merely political light. It
hes n--t occurred to either that it might be *.f
tahrautago to him personally and to big party
lo leave offlco without set-incr. gold quoted at a
premium or adding to th*- National debt by the
isle of benda, but both have always treaSed th
question from the point of view thal it is Ihe
ptiami.unt duty of tho Executive power to pro?
tect the '-rodi* ol th- <? ,\frtrin-trt iit all hasar 1-.
at tlie mme time doing what it can legally ? ' 1"
prevent n financial panic --.. epina the country.
AU this is sail merely to abo**/ thal ti"' Be sre
tary of th** Treasury i> l>y no means pr<-piri*l
yet te say what be will do m ia-.- ol an etner
?reney. He may -ii bends, and ho may think ii
tafe to p.*rmit tho rivrv,* to fall below fl 00,000,
?00.
As to tho sa'o of ? rndl b-r tbe purpose of iii
tuning gold, it bas been stated In .?.?rtain quar?
tos that the S-er?tary had no guarantee that the
buyers xvould pay _"M l->r tbe bonda; thal they
could locally (i'T.t diver, and thal siivor, being
coin, would have to be accepted by tte s<*<tretary.
This MMrtl ",'. i- diasipated by reference to tho
Methods adopted by Seeretary Sherman when lo
began tn accumulate gold in order to prepare for
the n-eiimption of specie payments He sold
nearly 990,000,000 of bonds by private contract

THE AFFAIRS OP THE COMPANY IN AS MTOB

'THE CO.V'TNl'ANCE OE MR. M'LEOB
IE OOMTEOL OF THE ROAD.
Speculative excitement in the Stock Exchange
ran iloxvn yesterday from the high phne it
roaehcd on Monday, bnt there waa po abatcnieuS
of Interest in the affairs of the Philadelphia sxW-l
Beading Railroad Company. The force of tTft
liquidation in th*' KCnritleg of the company litvj
h.-en expended, bal t!.e whole financial com?
munity is bunging upon the developments which
may follow tho action to secure a receivership.
Tho recant alsnghtet sf hoi Ungi has been so sud?
den and extenatve that the consequences may
not easily ly measured, especially as there aro
numerous questions in the railroad world yet to
be settled. The sjK'culativo situation in tho stock
market, may be bon**lito?l by tho puncturim? of a
bubble, int perhaps tlie downfall of tl?* Reading
struct uro may load to revelations sf man.i?om*>nt
that xviii disturb Ic'-itinirite interests. It io this
lour which left Wall Street disturbed and anxioua
ai tim close of business yeaterday, and tba wut*
ried mon oo lld see no nfl.-etti mr. advanta-ze in a
possible war on coal rates, even though that
iden was scouted bf tho Icalinz officers of the
coal-producing compsniee and prominent mci ls
the coal trail".
The magnitude of tho collapse in tho soh'cncy
of the Philadelphia and Beading is yet impossi?
ble to measure. Tho full atgniflcnBcs <>f thc suit
through xvhich tho roc"ix-oisliip was "Hooted ostw
not noxv be* outlined. Thc surface fads woolf
not indicate that the niana.enont of th^ Woad.
ii>- bsd been s-riously dist?bed. Ono of the
receivers is the executive officer?Archibald A.
McLeod?>who is hold responsible for tli" errors
of financial and rafVoad annngenaent, xvhich led
to tbe COllspee. Another one of tho r*s'*ix rs is
a man trhose In te reata should naturally be de?
voted to tho protection of a property that, when
it was paying dividends, xvas turned over to u
company that hail passed through twa bank?
ruptcies. 'Hie third receiver is a man of the
highest reputation in legal cirelee, wheat in
tegrity is unquestioned, but whose capacity as a
reorganhttr is not known wholly to the satis?
faction of important Now-York interests. In
these cirenmstnneea som*, exeuae may i*?x
gix-on for tho l.iuti-hiiiff of criticisms in Wall
Street banking circles agsiast the present con?
stitution "f the r<<*Ivcrsliip. The brant of the
objectioc-s inevitably falls anon the continuance
of Mr. McLeod in the direction af tho affairs of
th** Reading. It i- urged by his New-York crit?
ics that tho failure ol' tho Beading Company
proves his incapacity sa a finsneis] manager, even
if it may not iv* deabted whethei ho has not
given tao mneh attention to outside schemes
to warn/it ;i|tprovn| as a railroad operutine chief.
To put him into a pl.,od xxl,iel,, ii his ?.-.eaknees
as a manager la admitted, would give him promi?
nence in tho future direction of tho insolx-ont
company's affairs is eaDStdetred by many persons
a mistake.
This question, to.othor with many othors. de
pends lu ns snasrer upm the (level pmanta whioh
may he aisde it ta tho actual financial condition
of the Brading property and tits cans** that led
to its auspCBStsn of payments. Tho size und
chara fer *?f the Beating obUgStisni of tho Reud
niir are unhntwn; the methoda and possi'*ilitioe
of inoigapiistlnn .'ire equally unsettled. There is
nothing yet known hero af the actual situation,
and while all bUggestlonS of s an.lal may not be
!tisti!i"d, tiny Cannot ,VC ("lippi .-ol. A loul call
is tn.i'i" for fl Stringent scrutiny. If then- are
speculative motives st thc bottom a,' the financial
-ollaipe, they should be exposed. If rix -il rail?
road iut?i"-ts have holne'i to crush a property
which otherwise would h iv*- sustained Hs solve*-***,
coneervative men in Wall Str****t deaaaa I that
the responsibility is- lixei!. It Unsocial
integrity can he proved and existing conditions
traced simply to errors of judgment*-, the facts ar_
nood.-d for the enlightment alike of crediton and
Investors in the prop ny. If th** proceedings that
recured tho receivership wore inspired by a tlosiga
to protct the present nunagetnent <>f Reading, it
is hoped that the schomo ihall ls- exposed fur tlie
vindication of innocent mon who may havo been
I.*,! into tho tmp. The Wieek in tho prices ot
Beedina securities represents au enormous liqtiida
ti- n. The attitnde of investor- mast hereafter d?v
pend upon tl,** quest lou as t<> whether tho xvreclc
wa- largely speculative, or only the precipitation
of ;, crisis in tho affairs ol Reading that, in ita
coneequencea, may not <Msily bejgmged.
It xx.ts impossible to [gara io Jsew-Yi*fk the
?xti'nt ol' tl,.- Iloafin. riobt of ti,,* Reading system.
Tho amount of interest unpaid BpSB thc pta fag*
once Ineome bondi cannot bo deter,limed. At
th" annual meeting of the stockholders of tho
company on January I, th" declaration ol' the in?
terest wss made, rayment xvas began on Febru?
ary 1, and tho Corbin Hanking Company, of this
city, xx as delegated to pay Kow-York holders.
I his bank mad*' payments if inter*',-' up lo last
Saturday. It is' said that payments were male
on Friday, but on Friday th,- holders of preference
incomes who presonted their dalma :it th" Corbi:i
bank were reforrod to th*' I'liilndelphm ollics of
the Beading Company. The nai>eis in th-* suit of
Thomas C. l'latt. on which th" Reading re "ivor
liip xxas secured, do not. according to tbs tele?
graphed summary, say when the payment al inter?
est .ni Ids holdings of thyil prob'tenc- bonds waa
refused to him. Tho belief ni Wall Street circles
is strong that many balders "f thean nonda
ne.i.'oi ,| to draw their interest proms?y end so
aro l"ft to walt noon the developamntg in the rn.
eeiverahlp.
There sra numerous guesaca ,i> to tho extent of
the Boating debt of the Beadles Company, but
they ians*- fr<"11 JdidsMl.OOd t<> St'.uno,inn-, xvith
out data to huppoit any cstisaste that is trust
worthy. (?ne ol the cully reports of tho day was
linn th,* Lehigh ami Wilk.-sbair*' Deal Company,
which bi en-trolled by the Central Bnilrond of
Sew-Jetsey, held nine notes of "ftSS.SSS each, a
tot.il of "fl,sim,ooo, against the Reading C*?nt
pany, to cover ceo! mnssationa arhila the Jersey
i .nf nil's interests xxas nuder the Rea ling
lease. resident J. Rogers lia tamil, of
th.* Central Railroad of .New-Jersey,
malle tho following statement on thi**
point: '?The total amount tine .liteotly or in?
directly from tho lt* ul in,' to tho Lehigh and
WUkesbarre Campnny is *$io.s.ooo, the bal,non
having been paid Bom limo nm. The Reading

Thees aro preferred liabilities under the odor of

Then' State rumors in the Street thst co*!eid
erabl** eiims of money xvere owed to individual
coal operators slang the line of the Reading
road under Iks sirnnfaBHlMB for tho purchase ot
production made wiin tito MoJjQad management

these are no more than the ordinary aJx-ancee
made by all the coal companies when they pur

may be obltgatloac <?f this sort upuinst the Read?

payment of wages due to **inploy.t* it is oTaS
