VAN fiUUAAUK, BTIiVLNSON A RfilD, Chicago, FINANCIAL. Panic Reported on the CHICAGO, Got. 25. Decline in American Railroad Bonds at Amsterdam. A Quiet Day on Wall Street. The Reported Failure of the Spragues a Mistake. .Fresh list of Bankruptcy Proceedings. Orfioial.Statement from the Directors 'of the Mint. New York, Oct. 29.— Some little excitement was occasioned in Wall street, and commercial circles to-day by tho report of a panto on tho Vienna Bourse, together with a rumor of tho failure of A. and W. Sprague <fe 00., tho famous manufacturers of Rhode Island, and of Hoyt, Sprague & 00., their agents in Now York. Tho information of tho failure of tho Spragues was convoyed hero by dispatches, in which it was afilrmed that tbo liabilities of tho Arm woro $14,000,000, while their assets wore only half that amount. It is alleged that they -were in immediate need of $2,000,000, and at a . mooting of. bank officers, hold in Providence, it was found that no relief could bo given, and that their suspension was unavoidable, but, by the time this rumor gained general currency and these stories ponotratod to and became thorough ly known to the inmates of ovary office, it was discovered that .there was not tho slightest truth In It. The members of tho firm in this city claim that their assets are $14,000,000, and their liabilities not half that amount. This, they say, was demonstrated to officers of tho Providence banka, and the result was a loan to tbo firm of $1,000,000, which it required, for immediate wants. Some of tho creditors of Qriuncll & Co. have proposed to tako thoir matters out of tho courts prior to tho appolulmeut of au Assignee In Bank ruptcy, and settle tho matter amoug themselves without delay. It is proposed that the larger creditors, who are secured by stock'collaterals, shall take stock at a price to bo agreed upon, which will enable tbo estate to pay all tho other creditors. Mr. Williams, Jr., a member of tho Arm, sold to-day that efforts woro making to effect an amicable adjustment, but, os yet, noth ing had been accomplished. It was annonncod that Commodore Vanderbilt intended to tako up bis Lake Shore stock and that of tho Clark estate, and would insist on Scholl and Banker taking up theirs, but nothing can bo learned to coaArm it. The stock market opened weak, but improved slightly in early transactions, and was subse quently alternately strong and weak, closing at a net very important decline. Principal busi ness in stocks was Hudson, Lake Shore, and Wabash, and, beyond tboso shares, transactions wore unimportant. Western Union opened at 63%, rose to • 54%. and closed at 62%. Now York Central fell from 86% to 85%, at which it closed. Lake Shore declined from 64 to 62%. Harlem opened at 105% and closed at 104%. Erie opened at 40% and closed at 46%. Western Union foil from 63% to 62%; Pocillo Mail from 30% to SO; Toledo & Wabash from SO to 88%. Other loading stocks declined from 1%, —as in tho case of Ohio & Mississippi,—to 1% in St. Paul common. Tbo gold market is somewhat more active than usual of late, quotations ranging from 108% to 103%. German bankers are understood to have boon buyers to-day on account of pres ent and anticipated disturbances in financial af fairs abroad. Securities are reported lower in London, and the fact that the outside rate of discount is up to that of the Bank of England. 7 per cent, seems to bo regarded as an indication that tho bank may advance its rates. Sixty thousand dollars woro received at tho. Assay office to-day, making total receipts of gold for rccoinago, during tho month, $1,703*,000. Tho Sub-Treasury disbursed $35,000 in re demption of 5-20 bonds, and paid out on account of November interest $310,000. making a total $1,799,000. Foreign exchange dull and slightly lower. Banks are reported still gaining in legal tenders. Government uouda weak and lower. Limited inquiry for flour, and larger offerings: prices of -most grades under $8.60. Easier and very irregular. The difficulty in placing com mercial sterling is a groat drawback to trade. Shipping grades more plenty, and at tho close marked weaker for low and medium grades. Wheat market quiet, owing to absence of freight room and very heavy market for exchange. Milling demand good and prices of ungraded spring and rod winter irregular. Oats opened stronger, but toward tho close tbo de mand abated and market closed tame, at yester day's prices. Bye dull. Corn fairly active early in tho day, but quiet at tho close; tho demaud being chiefly for home trades. Freights sub stantially the same. \To tne Aaaodated PrttaA THE BUKOPEAN SITUATION. New Vobr, Got. 29. —Tho change in tho Euro pean situation to-day was quite marked, and many incline to the opinion that .the Bank of England rate will bo advanced in consequence of tlio Continent drawing heavily upon Loudon. At Amsterdam, the decline in some of tho now American railroad bonds is stated by private dispatches to be heavy. Missouri, Kansas, and Texas bonds, which woro marketed above 89, are reported to bo selling at 49%. At tho close of the day THE HITOATION IN WALL STREET was marked by a more quiet fooling. When the Government first agitated the policy of paying out silver, the premium was almost nominal on small pieces, while trade dollars wore worth per cent premium, but now small silver is worth 3 per cent, and trade dol lars 13 per cent premium. The impress says : “How long, at this rate, will it take the Govern ment to bring silver and paper on a par with each other r" Mr. Dodge, of tho firm of Dodgo & Co., says ho has boon served with papers in bankruptcy, and also with papers lu similar proceedings on behalf of Mr. Biploy, of Newark. Ho was afraid tho firm would bo obliged to go Into bank ruptcy, allbough every effort had boon made to avoid such a result. Further than this he was not disposed to speak of his affairs, which ho wished to bo kept botwooa tho firm and credit ors. The Now Brunswick Carpet Company have boon adjudged bankrupts by the Uuitod States District Court at Treuton.

SPECIE RESUMPTION, WHAT THE DIRECTOR OF TUB MINT BATS. Washington, Oot. 20.— Tho Director of tho Mint makes the following statement of tho pur pose of tho Government in 'paying out silver coin: In this, as other countries, where gold is tho solo standard or measure of value, silver coins aro overvalued for tho purpose of rondor ,mg them inoxportablo. They arc manufactured and issued on Government account, tho law, however, placing, directly or Indirectly, ho limit on the Issue to prevent redUhdahey* If issued in times of ppoCio pAynldni beyond tho require ment of the public for change, such coin will not maintain their purchasing power with standard coins. Owing to various causes In this and other countries silver has declined m value to a point 'at which tho Government can purchase it with gold, manufacture it' into small coin and pay it out at si fair profit. The Government has re cently purchased a quantity of silver bullion suf ficient lor Repurposes at cents per stand-, ard ounce, and will manufacture It into coin dt a fixed legal rate of 124 4-10 Cents per ounce, thb difference betwebrt tho purchasing and issuing rate being within a fraction of 12 cents per ounce, hr about 1(% por cent on gold coin paid in jJarthaso. This operation is believed to bo a moro profitable one for tho Treasury, and also more advantageous to tho public in tho present condition of the money market, than tho sale of gold for legal-tender notes, and is not a scheme - for resumption of specie payments, but simply a compliance with the Mint laws. A dollar in United States cur rency " will purchase a little more, gold in the market than a dollar of small sliver coins. Tho dollars will therefore Boon find tholr level, and. unless there bo a rise in both thd price of gold and aiWef, small coins, must circulate concurrently with paper money.. Tho Government has in tho possession of Assist ant Treasurers about $500,000 in silver coin, and at tho Mint and assay olflees In silver bullion, and coin abo'iit $2,000,000. This stock is ample-for tho present. Tliia mode of paying out silver coin will be continued until circumstances shall dictate- a contrary course, as proper. Tho Government- will exact the full seigniorage required • by , law, - but will not undertake to control tho disposition of coiu after it is paid out. Coin will then become tho property of holders, who may do what they please with it. This course was not decided upon until it had been folly considered by tho Secretary of tho Treasury. legal tenders. Outstanding legal tenders, $300,283,888. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Triowxe, OPERATIONS AT THE MINT. Philadelphia, Oct. 29.— The gold coined at the Mint thus for this month is valued at $9.- 200,000. THE MANUFACTURERS. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, WOOLEN MILLS SUSPENDED. Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 29.— The large woolen mills of Aaron Jours, Germantown, have sus pended, and will not resume before April next. About 200 hands woro employed there. The ex tensive mills of Charles Spencer have also par tially suspended operations. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. . ■ Boston, Oct. 29.—There was much excitement in this city to-day over the reports from Provi dence, R. 1., of the financial embarrassment of tbo firm.of A. &W. Sprague. All sorts of ru mors have been current, and exaggerated- re ports have been circulated. A dispatch to tho Daily Advertiser from Providence gives tho re sult of careful inquiry from trustworthy sources. Tho Spragues own an immense mill-property, representing 2,000,000 or 3,000,000 spindles, which is free from mortgages. Several outside enterprises, including the Now York Providence Steamship Company and• tho Porkins Street Iron Company, which have.not boon successful and aro heavily mortgaged, are controlled by them; audthe First. Second, and Globe National and Franklin and Cranston Sav ings Banks are known as >( Tbo Spi ague hanks." Since tho trouble began, Mr. William Sprague has not appeared at all In the business move ments of the concern, but bis brother Amasa has seemed to fight tho battle single-handed. About three weeks ago assistance was asked. The banks in Providence have no joint organi zation, hat a number of their representatives met oa Monday, and it was represented to them that if they would raise $1,000,009 to relieve their distress, an equal amount could bo raised in Now York through tho Hoyts there. A committee was then appointed to examine luto tho assets of the coacorn. It was considered that tbo assets of the Spragues wore greater than their lianili . ties. On tho afternoon of the same day, another meeting of bank representatives was hold, but nothing was agreed upon. Last evening another mooting was hold. Tho Spragues have in these banks deposits above their cosh assets amounting to about $150,000. This meeting recommended tho banks to-day to guarantee them those deposits if needed. Bomo of the banks agreed to it and others did not. By this moans the Spragues have met all their engagements, and paid oil de mands upon them. This afternoon it was represented that the Hoyts had obtained an amount of money from an unexpected source, and another meeting was called, at whioh another applica tion for $1,000,000 was made. Tho result was the appointment of another committee to make further investigation, and to con sider the question as to what must bo done. Another mooting will bo hold to-morrow. This is believed to be tho way in whioh tho affairs of the Spragues stand to-night. The Evanston Savings Bank three weeks ago began paying out $25 at a time, requiring sixty days* notice for the remainder of the deposit. Last Monday tho I'ranklin Savings Bank established oalmilor rule. Both institutions have large Irnounta of Sprague paper, particularly tho lat ter, but its investments are mainly sound. It is understood that Gov. Howard has appointed persons to examine into the condition of these two banks, and if they represent that tho business is unsafe tho Governor will take official action. To-day there has been somewhat of a run on tho Cranston Savings Bank, and about $6,000 has been paid out. [Jo ffte jf«Bocfaf<dPrea*.j MANUFACTURERS OF LUXURIES. . New York, Oct. 29.— Plano, billiard-table, and cigar-manufacturers, and other producers of luxuries ore conduotingtheirbusiness with groat caution. Tho large factories aro being run on half time, and with half their usual force, while the smaller establishment have, in the-main, closed altogether. This course is made neces sary by the financial disturbances, throwing out of work large numbers of men and women. Ar rangements are expected to bo made whereby most of tho factories will bo able to keep their hands at work, a part of the time at least, thus preventing a groat deal of suffering. hoyt, bituode * co. An emphatic denial ie given to the story, pub lished this morning, that the firm of Hoyt, Sprague A 00. is embarrassed. President Mor rison, of the Manhattan Bank, one of the banks through which the firm does business, states that ho received a letter from Mr. Hoyt this morning, saying that his house is not in any em barrassment. Mr. Morrison says that his bank is paying all the firm's paper, as usual, a course which would have boon continued regardless of tho story as published. The mercantile community express themselves in strong terms on the groat wrong done and tho blow given to business confidence by tho publi cation of 111-oopßiderod dispatches. Tho story this morning that announced the imminent dan ger in which the great house of A. and W.Bpraguo, of Providence, was in, said their liabilities woro double their assets 5 that they wanted a loan of two millions, but could not got it, and that fail ure was inevitable to-day. The facts are, owing to tho unexampled stringency of money, and difficulty in making collections, the firm became in need of temporary relief, like almost every largo firm la the country, and mado a re quisition upon a Providence bank. At a mooting of (ho Presidents and Pirootora of the banks, .called to consider the request, it was satisfactori ly shown that the assets of tho firm woro over sl4,ooo,ooo—said to bo a low valuation—and the liabilities about $7.00u,000, a complete reversal of the case published this morning. This ex hibit having boon mado, tho Providence hanks R lodged tho $1,000,000 that was wanted to carry 10 firm through in safety, and for tho present every danger of temporary suspension Is re moved. A mooting of tho friouds of the city houso' ot Hoyt, Sprague & Co. was hold' tills morning to proffer any further assistance if needed. A member of the firm says tho Com pany does not anticipate any further trouble. New Xouk, Oct. 20.—A dispatch from Provi- donee gives substantially the same account of tho financial troubles of Hoyt, Sprague & Co., and A. and W. Sprague, as has been already tologiaphod.
