The Morgan Gold Bond .Syndi cate Dissolves. An Interesting Circular Sent Out by J. PierpontMorgan & Co. Merabora Released From Their Contracts to l'tirclinno 1 heir Iro Itata Bhnre of the Inane Wlmt WaiOon. nt Wh- Inston Conforonee Deoember 23. New Youk, Jan. 15. The mombers of tho government bond syndicato re ceived In their mail Wednesday morn ing a circular lcttor from J. Pierpont Morgan & Co., releasing: them from their commitments to furnish their pro rata share of 8100,000,000 in gold to the government, and'a second 5100,'OOQ 000, if desirable, taking- their pay thorefor in 4 per cent, bondn. Tho circular1 contains a detailed statement of overy phaso of the syndi cate's connection with tho proposed bond issue and offer of grold to tho gov ernment. Mr. Morgan says ho was in vited to -Washington December 23 for a conference, but that no negotiations for a loan wero commenced, nor was there then or since any agreement or request that Mr. Morgan should take any steps preparatory to making a con tract.. The result of his visit led him to tho conclusion that the president and secretary of the treasury wcro determined to use every power at their command to maintain the gold reserve, that no steps would bo taken until it was ascertained what action congress would bo likely to take in response to tho appeal of tho presi dent; that tho executive department would prefer, if possible, to se cure $200,000,000 of gold inf order to uvoid any necessity for a similar nego tiation before the meeting of tho new congress in 1S97, and that it was abso lutely certain that no adequate relief could be obtained from congress, and that no bill could be passed through tho senato for tho improvement of tho monetary system of tho country. Upon his return ho took steps to form a syndicate which would agree to sell to tho government 5200,000,000 of gold coin. Tho only proviso In tho contract (in addition to tho important ono that no gold should bo withdrawn from tho treasury) wadl that tho minimum amount should bo $100,000,009 and the maximum not exceeding 3200,000,000. The syndicate being completed, Mr. Morgan commenced negotiations "for the permanent placing of a'portion of the loan by public issuo in Europe. After waiting a few days for soma, announcement or invitation from Washington, on January 14 he sent by messenger a letter to the president in forming him of thi approaching crisis and extreme tension in financial af fairs and acquainting him with tho successful steps ho (Morgan) had taken in arranging for tho salo of 11,500,030 ounces of gold, approximately S200, 000,000. Mr. Morgan pledged to the president every effort in his power to assist tho government in its endeavor to mako successful a negotiation by public ad vertisement. On January G the call for public bids for bonds was issuod by the secretary. Mr. Morgan continues: "Tho amount of bonds thus offered made tho syndicate contract owing to tho minimum therein o fixed available only to bid 'for all or none.' I should bo unwilling to mako such a bid under present circumstances. Tho only emergency which would justify such a courso would bo tho failure of tho pub lic to respond to tho call of the govern ment Under these circumstances I at once decided to dissolve the rndicatc. In spito of the dissolution of the syn dicate, it is known there will still bo more or less concert of action among them as individual bidders for the lcin. Probably tho strongest pressure will bo brought to bear on tho administra tion to extend the installment pay ments on tho loan, us tho money mar ket will be seriously affected if tho payments are raado every ten days, as provided in tho secretary's circular. 1 he Dissolution uf the Hold n(tfcnto Washington-, Jan. 15. Secretary Carlisle declined to express any opin ion as to tho dissolution of the gold syndicate. Tno general opinion among treasury officials is that its dissolution will havo no appreciable effect, as tho gold, which is controlled by the syn dicate or by individuals aetlng inde pendently, will bo and would have, been represented in tno bids to bo opened February 5 next, by all who desire United States bonds us an in vestment.
