THERED BOOT,^36 North Main St.. Butte, Mont
1ashinuton. April a.-At a cabinet^meeting this momiii*. at which all mem^^ber* ^^l tha cabinet were present with tba^exception of Secretary Herbert of tba^navy department, the financial situation,^j* ^e understood, waa almost the exclusive^topic of discussion. Tbe meeliug lasted^for two hours and a half and wan the long-^est session of the cabinet since the new^administration come into power.
Whcutbo treasury department closed^its (loon tbie afternoon, the Bold reserve^^^f SlOU.up'j.ouo bad been invaded to the ex-^tent of $2,600,000 to m.ooo,uoa When the^day aliened there was in the treasury S18^.-
'u free gold. This amount waa In-^cr^ seed by sold offers from the West, ag-^ffsSJSMBj about tt.200,000. The Urge with-^'Iran is of gold fur shipment from New^York cut this down to such an extent that^when tbo cabinet met Secretary Carlisle^fouud that tho orders for gold up to that^time-about 1 o'clock -liad wiped out the^free cold and invaded the gold reserve to^tbo extent of t2fiS7AOtk
Asfar as it can be officially ascertained,^this amount was taken out of the gold re^^serve to-day for export to-morrow, al^^though it in unofficially stated that K00,-^turn in sold, exclusive of that taken out at^Now York, was withdrawn from tho sub-^treasury at Boston for export to Canada.^If so, this would mako about S5.000.000 in^k-old taken am of tbecountry for shipment^to-morrow, und leave the gold reserve in^^vaded to tha extent of S3.O0J.030, or Hie^total gold m the treasury at Sl^7,000,003. It^is believed that thia invasion is but tempo^^rary . vtd that within a few days the de-^pie reserve will bo restored to its or-^i;^nal figure of SlOO.'JOO.OOa
Whilenothing official can be obtained^here as to the decision of tbe treasury de^^partment in regard to the payment in^gold of treasury notes of 1800, tbe fact that^these notes are being paid in gold upon^presentation proves conclusively that they^will, for the present at least, be redeemed^as heretofore. The construction placed^upou Secretary Carlisle's statement given^to the press last night was that when be^had reached the limit of the gold reserve^he would exercise his discretion and pay^this class of notes when presented for re^^demption in silver. To this extent only^a^ro the occurrences of to-day a surprise.^It can bo stated witb positiveness that^thero is no disagreement ou tbe financial^situation between the president and Sec^^retary CarlUlo or among the members of^tho cabinet.
AMAZED NEW YORKERS.^Th.,y Expected to Fast the Earth Treat-^b:*- On 'Change.
NxwYork. April 21.^Tha upper crust^of the $100,000,000 gold reserve has been^removed. The financial world stood by^Mid witnessed the doing of it and, yet, to-^nig'.it in this financial center, no quakings^^*' the earth were felt and tba folks who^^*re moat interested are wondering why^there lias been no crash of worlds nor^wreck of spheres. Indeed some financiers^are looking each into tbe others' faces^and ejaculating as to wbother they bare^been fanatic or uncannily superstitious.
Engagementsfor gold for export from^here of the steamers sailing to-morrow and^on Tuesday amount to fC.175,000: from^Boston, 1750,000. There was much diver-^^tty of opiuion in tho financial community^during tbe day over Secretary Carlisle's^statement. In main the judgment waa^unfavorable, and this to no small extent,^t ecu use of tho statement's ambiguity.^On tbo stock market, accumulating^^bull^ rumors from Washington di^^verted practically all the atten^^tion from the secretary's circular,^but the Sterling exchange market opened^in utter confusion, reflecting a very un^^usual occurrence, a scare among regular^remittors against foreign credits, tha de^^mand for sterling bills this time proceed^^ing frot.i bankers who were doubtful about^gold payment for treasury notes, and^nn^jous to anticipate their payments so^h /avily as to force up Sterling rates to tbe^'.lighcst figure touched since the panic of^MM.
Overf i.OOO.OOO in gold is engaged for ex^^port by to-morrow's steamer with orders^unusually widely distributed.
I' the midst of this turmoil, foreign^Ic'edsra of money called in numerous loans^a ad these notes being drawn with a gold^^ Juiikc. payment in specie m at least one^cp.se was demanded and obtained. Not^unnaturally tho call for the money mar-^l.et tightened under the withdrawals and.^the ^-tock market operators lending usual^assistance, money rates were bid upon ox-^cl aiiL'c. So far as sll this was the result^of a simple fright. It had a reassuring side.^The treasury notes presented at the aub-^trcasttry were promptly redeemed in gold.^There was, moreover, a ^ tear statement^in several quarters of tho vexed gold^clause in tmio no es, older trust com^^panies mid many lianks. which to some^extent are lenders utt time, made positive^statements to-day that they were mak^^ing no stipulation of gild payment.^Foreign bankers, with one or^two trust companies, are steadily^insisting ou the clsueV and are resisted^by borrowers. Borrowers ou call to-day^w ere able to secure accommodation early^in the day at *^ to t^ per cent., but those^who delayed supplying their wants were^forced to pay 7 to 1.'. Posted rates for^sterling exchange raised lo $4.*^^!.'; and^St , and there BBS little disposition to^draw. The situation improved late in tbo^day. Money was in liettcr supply toward^the closo and limned as low as 4 per cent.
Thisis tho first tune since the resump^^tion of specie payments that tho reserve^has kSSM cut into, counting in thu sub^^sidiary com as part of the available funds^of IBB treasury. A difference of opinion^exists SB to w hether the subsidiary coin^should hja thus counted. If not. then tbe^is^cr\e has bean encroached upon seven
^^^as,previous to bow. ins* before tbe^suh-treaaury rlosea this afternoon M was^r*p*r^sd that tha efMetal* had been^notified of a demand to be mad* to^^morrow for 94,003,000 of gold for sbiprrent^Tuesday and there was an additional re^^port, not verified, that S3,000,0n j maw* will^be taken Monday.
OfI ite it has been a favorite supersti^^tion th it, if tba imm dropped below^its limit, ths result would be disastrous,^not only to values, but also to the mercan^^tile community. Tba fact that tho shock^bas been comparatively slight baa caused^an easier feeling about the future, al^^though there will doubtless not be any^surprise if tba movements in tbo slock as^well as in money and sterling exchnngo^markets are erratic for some time.
ManagerSberer of the clearing bouse^said with regard to tba gold situationl ^I^do not think that any action ia necessary,^as no artificial restriction that could be^placed upon the export of gold would^mend matters in tba least or chock the^outflow. We are simply coming to* sil^^ver husis iu tbo natural course of oveuts^and if the present mode of financiering^continues we will soon have no gold in tbo^country. but will bare plenty of silver.

CSBCASB)April SI.^Although ape of tho^most inclement days of the season, a^number of Montana visitors found their^way to the state building on the world's^fair grounds. Among them were Hon. W.^W.

Professor Trapbagen has^charge of th* Montana mineral exhibit^and baa come on to personally oversee the^work. The general expression of visitors^seemed to be ono of discouragement at^the outlook. No on* believed that the^grounds, which are now almost impass^^able, could possibly be prepared for tbo^reception of visitors on May 1.
CommissionerW. II. Sutherlin of White^Sulphur Springs, when asked what bo^thought of the condition of affairs, sold:^^Tell Montana people that navigation^her* is first rate. Some places are deep^and outers deeper. 1 wish wo could trans^^port some of our Montana weather for^the benefit of tho fair.
Mr.Sutherlin has charge of th* Mon^^tana agricultural display. When asked^how near it had reached completion, lie^answered: ^I haven't fouud the cars that^carry tbe exhibit yet, but I suppose that^they are here somewhere. The pavilion^has not yet been begun. The contractors^were paid S1,000 in advance and aro taking^their time to do tbe work. However,^they have promised to commence on it^next Monday, and it will probably be three^or four weeks before ev ery tiling U com^^pleted.

Intbe afternoon the committee on reso^^lutions reported. Thu resolutions were 12^In number aud embraced tho following^topics: Mask yards: improvement in^breeding cattle; brands; arid lands; irri^^gation; silver; Indiau regulations, and^ranges.
Thediscussion of these topics was gen^^eral and notable for tbe hard sens* it^contained. Silver and th* question of^ceding the arid lauds were dwelt upon^with greater emphasis than any other^topic. The cattlemen were a unit on^these subjects, being in favor of-the free^and unlimited coinage of silver, and ol^ceding the arid lands to th* western^states.
Contraryto expectation there waa no^fight tusdo on the proposition of the neat^place of meeting.
