(By Associated Press.)
BUCHAREST, ROUMANIA, Mar.
2.r>.?Tho situation arising from the
Agrarian revolt has become so serious
that the Roumanian parliament is
considering the advisability of invest?
ing the government with extraordi?
nary powers. The minister of war.
General Mnno. has ordered the mobil-1
i/.at ion of four additional regiments'
at. Jassy, where 12,000 troops already
have been concentrated. At Jassy
the artillery Is encamped on the prin?
cipal street. All the shops In th-3
.town aro closed.
It is reported that a very large
number of peasants, estimated at from
forty to fifty thousand, are ready to
advance and attack the place. Copies
of a minifesto were distributed in i
Jassy yesterday accusing the govern I
ment of responsibility for the recent
disorders nnd ad*Msing the people to
take the law into their own hands.
The author of this manifesto, the
present curraio of Vaslut, has been
dismissed from office.
A condition of anarchy prevails at
Nanolossa, and the reports from that
village arc alarming. Another en?
counter between peasants and mill-,
tary 1b reported from Gnlatz, where
on Sunday, the troops fired on a gath?
ering of "peasants, killing twenty-five.
From Vaslui it Is reported that or?
ganized bands of robbers are maraud?
ing tile district. The leaders of these
bands assumed the title of "general"
and contributions are being levied
from all vlllaged and farms. The
plundering continues on a largo scale |
in the districts of Roman. Putna, Jas?
sy and Botosahni.
Tho peasants are setting fire to
everything within reach, but. they ilee
on the approach of Cue soldiers.
Several Serious Conflicts.
There have been several serious
conflicts between peasants and troops,
notably at Bacesh, in the district of
Vaslui, where 2,ouo peasants, armed
with rifles and revolvers, attacked a
company of soldiers. The troops fir?
ed several volleys, killing 40 peasants
and.wounding large numbers, but the
soldiers were so greatly outnumbered
that they finally were obliged to re?
At the village of Teleormnn, In the j
Alexandria district, peasants sacked
tho synagogue and m burned forty j
The rioters also demolished and
completely pillaged Zimnlcea another j
village In the Alexandri district. The
army reserve men are fraternizing j
with the marauders and participating
In tho work of plunder.
The total number of troops now in
Moldavia is 32,010, but large rein?
forcements are still required.
Not An Anti-Semitic Uprising.
LONDON, Mar. 25.?That in Molda?
via and Wallachia, to be a result of
similar disturbances in the adjacent
province of Russia and not of an anti
Jewish character, is evident from a
communication made to the Associat?
ed Press by Premier Cantncuzeno and
telegraphed by him from Bucharest
The premier says: "The grave trou?
bles which have broken out In 4<ou
manla do not arise from any anti-Sem?
itic feeling. They are of a. well de?
fined Agrarian character. The peas?
ants are not only devastating the
houses and farms of the Jewish farms,
but also those of Roumanian laud
proprietors. It is undeniable that
these sad occuronccs are in part a
result of the agitation now prevailing
in Russia especially in Bessarabia
which borders on Roumanin.
"The Roumanian government is
taking energetic measures to restore
order, nnd it hojies that by active mil?
itary Intervention tho rioting quickly
will Ivo suppressed. Immediately
thereafter the government will intro?
duce a series of measures providing
for the necessary Agrarian reforms."

, NEW VOIIK. Mar. 5.?Today's
slock market defies any clear analy?
sis. |Thu surface facts upon which
there is no room lor dispute nro that
thero was an unbridled Impuls?: to
sell securities and an almost entire
paralysis Of demand. The consequen?
ces to prices were such as might be
Imagined. That any urgent necessity
was forcing holders of securities to
pnrt with them did not appear from
any facts known to the public. The
banks; were not culling loans and the
withdrawal id' credits by money lend-:
ers-.conld not bo ascribed hh the Im?
pelling cause of the Blump.
Of' course the violent decline and
the'shrinkage In collateral caused a
read uj&t incut constantly of loans and
this shrinkage oi course forced vul?
nerable holdings upon the market, in
the course of the fall. Hut stringency
of money wan net, 1,10 primary cause
In forcing tho liquidation. So far as
the dread of failures at tho coming
stock market settlements In London
nhd -Bc-MIn', was concerned the situtt^
tl'-n -was .admittedly Improved over

bounds from Saturday's closing level
here und Berlin was reported to be
buying American securities in Lon?
don. Reassuring advice? from ihn
bi'liej quarters In tho financial
world abroad wore received as to the
Improvement in the situation. Berlin
was alleged to hhvo completed neces?
sary arrangements for the April first
settlements which lias been the dan?
ger point dri ailed. Rumors of an Im?
portant house In London in financial
difficulties, were said to be disproved
by tho most careful Investigation,
Metal Market Disordered.
Large orders were executed in this
market to buy stocks for foreign ac
count, but with hardly more than n
momentary effect on prices. One par?
ticular in which London did offer 1111
acutely depressing factor wn-i in the
disorder,in h-. r motnl markets.
Copper and tin both showed heavy
iiecliue;i and speculative commits
incuts in Uio copper market were said
to be involved.
The- large speculation In copper se?
curities in this market have been |>aa
ed on the conflden'eo of sound condi?
tion 8. This confidence was shaken
nnd the metal industrial proved ex
tromely vulnerable as a consequence
Including (he United States Btool
stocks, targe holdings of these se?
curities were believed to be touched
by the demoralized declines.
Holders of amalgamated copper am!
of United StsiHs steel seemed to be
suddenly awakened to the recollection
of past performances In those securi?
ties following tiie quick transforma?
tion from the condition of great, pros?
perity in their trades to acute depres?
sion and rapid shrinkage of earnings.
Couldn't Hold the Market.
The operations of the bear contin?
gent ill the market are believed to
have taken on the proportions of n
saturnalia. Individual operations on
(he short side fii at least one Instance
were believed to be ?>f prodigious pro
portions. These operations seined to
be i ntlrely unopposed on behalf of the
controllers or insiders in any proper?
ty. A striking [caliiro of the situation
in fact Beemcd to be tho consensus of
opinion amongst the larger interests
that supporting measures would be
futile to check the seli'ng frenzy. En?
gagements of gold in London for im
?ort nnd additional latitude allowed
by the Secretary of the Treasury in
tiie security for governmental depos?
its, although promising to help the
money market through were entirely
Ignored. Influential men In the bank?
ing world did no*, hesitate to charac?
terize the selling as prompted by
"insane fear." Information from com?
mission houses of the terms In which
some of the selling orders were couch?
ed gave color to these views. Pears
of a coming prostration and of the
stripping of powers of management
and control from corporations were
alleged as principal grounds for the
alarm. It. was late in the day before
'.he prices reached the lowest leycl,
but the actual closing reflected a ner?
vous feeling amongst the shorts In
the feverish rebounds caused by their
rush to take profits.
