New Youk, Maroh 5, 1892.
Tho Stook Marktt is flooded with
"misteries," and rumors of gigantic
railroad deals upon an unprecedent
ed soalo as being oither in progress or
already accomplished. Details of
these havo filled tho daily press for
weeks pas , but only sum operators
as aro within tho charmed oirolos ap
pear to know tho truo inwardness of
many of them. As a oonecquenoo,
judgment passscs for littlo in estimat
ing tho futuro value of many sccuri
ties, for the market is almost wholly
undor tho control of comparatively
fow persons, whose oporations must
nevitably influenoo tho value of thou
sands of millions of stooks and bonds.
Thero is one other factor whioh is
again becoming influential in Wall
Street, aud that is tho silver question.
Already it is produoing important ef
fects whioh had not been expected to
at this early stago in the outworkings
of tho Silver Ast of I89O. T"e re
nowal. of tho exports of gold ba;
proved an eye-opener. During tho
year I89I our oxpoits of goods and
specie exceeded our imports of the
like items by $185,000,000,
and for the first two months of
1892 fully tho same rate
of oxoess bts been maintained
It might havo been expeoted that
under such ciroumstanoes wo should
now bo importing largo amounts of
gold to settle tbis large appiront trado
balanoe in our favor. Tho faot is,
howover, that wo are oalled upon to
export gold. How aro we to account
for this extraordinary raovemont?
After setting off, against this creditor
balanco of some 215 millions foe tho
last fourteen months, all that may
havo accrued ngaiust us in Europe on
aooount of interest, freight on imports,
undervaluations, eto., thero ought to
bo a balanoo in our favor of some
thing like 115 millions; for an avorago
of the last deoade, about 85 millions
surplus of exports over imports has
sufficed to liquidate theso debtor
turns. Thero arises from these facts
tho strongest possiblo presumption
that, sinco tho beginning of 1891, con
siderably over 100 millions of our se
curities have beon toturned from Eu
rope; for tho credit balanoo has un
questionably been settled, and thero
is no other way in whioh it oould havo
been dono except by the re
turn of stooks, bonds, eto. This
rf flax of our securities dates from the
period of tho enactment of tho last
silver law, whioh doubled the govern
ment pu'ehases of silver. It is coin
cident with an opinion everywhere
entertained tn European nnanoial cir
cle?, and emphasized by tho foreign
press, that the course of legislation
and. tho bias of popular opinion in this
country indicated a gravo possibility
that our ourronoy system might bo
como subjeit to a general deprecia
tion of value, whioh would corre
spondingly diminish the value of all
our securities not niado speoifically
payable in gold. As Europe holds
many hundreds of millions of Ameri
can securities of the very kind that
would be subjeot to such deteriora
tion, it is nothing moro than might bo
expected that our obligations should
be returned in extraordinary amounts,
and tho more so as tho Now York
market has been in a condition to
take them without suffering serious
Over 100 million of ssouritips re
turned within fourteen months I This
is tho startling faot just dawning upon
tho perception of Wall Street; and it
naturally suggests some very grave in
quiries; such, for instanoe, ns how
muoh gold should we have had to
ship in payment for these returned
seouritios, had we not beon favored
with an extraordinary surplus of
cereals whioh Europe happened to
noed ? how aro wo to pay for ony
furthor amounts that may bo so re
turned ? what dimensions may tbis
future reflux of investments assume,
bhould the mania for free coinage con
tinue to control the course nf legiela
tion ? and, with only somo $30,000,000
nf gold in tho treasury, outside tho re
quired reaorvo against greenbacks,
whore is the gold to come from to
satWfy theso two possible foreign
drains? It is thus seen that tho silver
mania is bringing us muoh nearer to
a perilous vorge than it is pleasant to
oontemplato, and that unless tho mad
ness of freo silver ogiution can bo in
somp way staytd wo liny witness a
serious di'turbnnco of publio confi
donee muoh earlier than has beon sup
posed possible. Under theso circum-t-tanoes
the main hope of Wall Strcot
is in tho popaiblo formation of an In
ternatioDrtl Couferenoo to settlo tho
wholo silver problem upon a broad
and suro foundation Secretary Fos
ter's visit to Europe for the under
stood purpose of cunferenoo with the
British Government is theroforo hail
ed with great satisfaction as affording
tho only way of csoapn from grave
possibilities. Hknby Clkws,

Wo take pleasuro iu calling speoial
and partioular attention to tho an
nounoement in the proper column of
tho candidacy of Dr. F. W. Burger
for the offico of district olerk of Mc
Lennan county. It is unnecessary to
say that Dr. Burger is eminently fitted
for the important office of district
clerk. Bo is well known to nearly
ovoy voter in tho county and whero
he is tho best known ho stands highest
for business ability, integrity and
other qualities which the publio look
for in an important publio servico In
tho years 1888, '89 and 90 Dr. Burger
was tbo superintendent of public
schools of tho county, ind his industry,
judgment and affability in tho funo
tions of that offico endeared him to all
with whom ho came in contact. An
essentially Southern man with broad
and liboral views, of liberal education
and fino attainments ha would fill the
office of district olerk with ability and
to the satisfaction of all. The News
oommends Dr. Burger to tho kindly
officers of voters as a man for the
oflno of district clerk whose suporior
cannot be found in tho county.

A Serious Accident.
Polioo Offioor W. T Briggs while

The injuries of Mr. Briggs aro pain
ful and will perhaps keop him confin

they are not oonsidered dangerous.
