LONDON, Nov. 7. -The directors of the Bank of England this morning put up the minimum discount rate from 6 to 7 per cent. The only thing which would have averted this rate would have been assurances from responsible quarters in New York that the situation there which, it is recognized, is due to the exceptional demands upon capital due to the great commercial activity In America, is suf ficiently well in hand to warrant the ex pectation that there would be an early cessation of the gold drain on this mar ket. In the absence of such an assurance the Bank of England utilized the only weapon at hand to protect Its reserves. It is realized, however, that even this high rate may not prevent shipments of gold to. New York, but It is hoped that it may attract the metal from abroad in sufficient quantities to reßtore the equil ibrium. The 'step is doubly necessary, as the bank must nurse its supplies just at pres ent for the autunvo country cash re quiremeifts as well as the usual Egyptian demands, and there is a possibility of demands, for gold from Argentina. The local business community Ib bound to feel the pinch, and the financiers an ticipate the drastic rate will cause an even greater squeeze in Germany with a consequent increase in the discount rate of the Imperial bank and selling orders from Berlin. The announcement of the increase of the Bank of England's rate by a full point had a strong effect on the stock exchange here. Consols, which opened 3t16 higher owing to the settling of the railway dispute, fell half a point. Home railroads started one to four points dearer, but lost most of the advance with in a few minutes. American railroads had a similar action. The opening prices ruled around parity, but h drop of a point followed Immediately after the raise of the bank rate, anri selling brought quotations at noon down three points lower than yesterday. It was not until the bank statement was issued that the bnnk fully realized how heavy had been the drain on the gold reserve. The figures showed the week's decrease to he £3.1 U5, 807. the total reserve being £17,(5!M,7!15. against £20,833, (SO2 last week and £19.70r,.3f18 at this time last year. There were Inquiries lr the market this morning for another £1,250, 0 in gold fw America. Bullion amounting to £1,210,000 was taken into the Bank or England today and £737.000 was withdrawn for shipment to the United States.
