WHAT BRADSTREET HAS TO SAY.
No Material lasprovement ta Trade Dar
InS Week Jost Gone By.
Xew Yobk, Jan. & Bradstreet'a says:
There has been no material improvement
in general trade within a week. Jobbers
and other wholesalers are sending out, or
are about to send out, commercial trav
elers, and in many instances have not
finished the year's accounts and stock
taking. A tabulation of Bradstreet's tele-
hgraphic reports from the more important
trade centres does not reveal specially
hopeful views as to an improvement in
the near future. In many instances trade
revival is declared to depend on a settle
ment of the currency iuei.tion. The most
encouraging expressions of opinion are
that merchants are hopeful.
Among more favorable conditions are.
reports that stocks of goods of all descrip
tions in the hands of jobbers, manufac
turers and retailers, west and northwest,
are generally small r than usual at this
seajon; that the business of the year in
dry goods, hats, shoes, millinery and gro
ceries has been fairly satisfactory and
that cold weather has stimulated demand
for coal and seasonal. 1" fabrics. Less fa
vorable is the announcement of the low
est price on record for iron and steel, Bes

lining is found in an advance of 25 cents
a ton in shipping rates to northern mar
kets from southern points of pijr iron pro
duction. Total bank clearings at sixty-nine cities
in the United states otli-ially reported to
Bradstreet, aggregate for the calendar

than in the panic year and "i per

f.-aturo of Bradsteeel's regular monthly

Differential National Capital Notes.
Washington, Jan. 5. Holman, chair
man of the Democratic caucus committee
of the honse, bos issued a call for a Demo
cratic caucus to be held at 3 p. m. on
Monday next, Jan. 7. The call states that
important measure i will be considered.
It was issued after a conference between
Holman, Springer and Speaker Crisp. It
was at first desired to hold the meeting
tonight, but so many Democrats were ab
sent that it was finally deemed best to
wait until Monday. The principal sub
ject to be considered is the currency bill.
The question of a bond issue will also
Hperry Wooid Retire the Creenhneaa.
Sperry, of tho banking and currency
committee, has proposed another substi
tute to the Carlislo currency bilL It
strikes out all after the enacting clause
and provides for an issue of bonds suf
ficient to retire outstanding greenbacks
and treasury notes under the Sherman
act Tho bonds are to bear 3 per cent, in
terest, are to bo redeemed in gold, and are
to be of denominations from $10 to f 10, 0K).
They are to run for thirty years, with tho
right to redeem them after ten years. The
secretary of the treasury is empowered to
keep the gold reserve up to a minimum
of tioy.ouo.iwo by selling these bonds. lTo
vision is made for the steady retirement
of tho greenbacks, both from the proceeds
of the bonds and from the surplus in tho
treasury. Sperry'g substitute is under
stood to have executive approval in case
the Carlisle bill cannot pass.
Hemlrix Tackled ly Ilepbnm.
During the debate In tho house on the
Carlisle bill Ilendrix of New York, a
banker by profession, referred to the fact
that the Bank of France was authorized
to refuse to pay more than 5 per cent,
gold on its demi.nd obligatious except
in case of altsolute necessity. lie was
asked by Hepburn if this impaired tho
bank's credit and said it did not. "Then,"
said Hepburn, "would tho credit of. the
United States be iiiiwiired if the United
States should exercise its discretion and
redeem the Sherman notes iu silver?"
This was not a parallel case for tho
Bank of France does not "redeem" its de
mand notes when it pays 6 per cent, in
gold on them.
Chars-re It to Oeneral Distant.
But Ilendrix did not notice this, and
said ho believed such action on our part
would impair our credit, because of the
general distrust of the government's abil
ity to pay gold. "But the notes aro re-
leem:ible in coin, not gold," was Hep
burn's parting shot. After Ilendrix had
closed some ot her speeches were made, and
Caruth, one of the speakers, gave a portion
of his time to Hepburn, who said the rem
edy for the present condition in this coun
try was the French plan. " hy will not
the secretary of tho treasury exercise tho
ho asked amid a round j
of applause. The exercise of this discre
tion did not impair the credit of Kuropean
banks. W ho dared to say that the credit
of this country with 63,000,0UO of pcoplo
behind it, and an unlimited taxing power,
would bo impaired because it refused to
kneel at the demands of the Shylocks.
"Why have not tho Republican secreta
ries of the treasury exercised that discre
tion!'" asked Pence (Pop.) of Colorado.
I have not been secretary of the treas
ury, replied Hepburn, hotly. "When I
am I will answer." He then proceeded
to rake Hcndrix over the coals, describ
ing him as a self-beralded national bank
er who came here with oracular utter
ances to tell the house what to do. Hep
burn said his self-laudation was impaired
by the recollection of bis speech sixteen
months ago, when the same conditions ex
isted. Mr. Hcndrix then found the pan
acea for nil linancial ills in the repeal of
the Sherman silver lnw.
ACUTE CRISIS IN THE TARIFF WAR.
Austria Ztlgea n Complaint Against the
Ihnrrential Duty on $agr.
WAsnixtiTos, Jan. 5. The thriff war be
tween the United States and Kuropo
has reached on acute phase. The Very
iirst oftichil act of Hcnglemuller, the new
Austrian minister, was the lodgnvint of a
protest against the paragraph of the sugar
schedule which imposes an additional
duty of one-tenth of 1 percent, on sugar
coming to the United Stan's from mn
ries which pay an export lamnty on It.
The ground taken by the minister was
similar to that which formed the basis of
the protest of iiermnny that the addi
tional duty paid discriminates against
Austria and is consequent ly a violation
of the treaty of rfmimerce with tliat na
tion. So far no threat.of retaliation ae.
citt'tpanicd the proti-st. but in th'.sHengle
ini.ller is but following t hecxample set by
the German minister, and the next step
will undoubtedly be in thn same direction
namely: The iinioit:on of somo re-stri-tion
upon an American product that
is imported in quantities into Austria.
The four great sources of our sugnr sup
ply, outside of the small proportion con
tributed by Louisiana, are Cul, Germany
France and Austria. With three of these
countries we are already at odds over the
sugar duty, and in the case of France
there are already indications of the adop
tion of a retaliatory policy in the imposi
tions of restrictions upon our meat t ratio
and thn importation of American wheat
