Washington City, June 9. Secretary
Foster said yesterday that he had not yet
determined what te do about the 4 per
eent. bund. The Xew York Uiriker in-
I fisted that if the bonds were extended at a
lower rae of inherent than 2 per cent.
they Would lose Bionpy. At the same time
they admitted that the government was in
a position to force themi to take the ' bonds
at whatever rate of interest it saw fit t
Many offers were bemn receiwd,
he said, frt)m western banks to extend the
bonl4 at any rate of interest the secretary
?f the treasury chose to fix, and "I have
no doubts " sakl Se-retary Foster, "that
the western Iwnks would extend their
holdings of 4J4 ier cent, ljonds without
IHstribution of the llond.
The peeiietary here picked up a state
ment showing that 4:i per cent, bonds
held by national Imuks to secure circula
tion and government deposits were dis
tributed as follows: New Kngland States.
f3.T4!3,!5oi); middle states, $.-.0!6,400: south
ern states. l,447.3oi; western states, $13.
7S4,;(iO. "The western states," continued
Secretary Foster, "receive as high as 8 or
10 H-r cent, for money, while C per cent, is
the ruling rate in tlie east. The western
banks could perhaps better afford to have
their holdings of 4j per cent, bonds ex
tended at 1 ier cent, than the eastern
iKiiiks could at 2 per cent, interest.
These latter luks argued that a rate of
less than t per cent. wouM reduce the

T think, myself, that it would lie well
to l,ave the lionds conuiKind premium in

atfon to that extent. This is a consi'k-ra-
ni lnt to lie overtookvd. erecia'l".y iu
view f the heavy export of gold to Kurope.
which of course reduces the circulation
considerably'." It was gathered from all
hat Secretary Foster s;tid that if the
western hau&s wonht take all the 4?j per
criit. txnuis at I or 1"-.; per cent . lie would
t them have them: if tot. rather than
force the eastern bauks to take le"s thau 'J

at that rate, provided thev would take
