WASHINGTON, Mar;h 2.—Representative Bryan (dein., Keb.) has abandoned his intention of securing- a conference of the free silver representatives and senators with a.yiewof issuing: a call to the democrats of the country, laying- down the proposition that a majority of the democrats favor the free and unlimited coinage of silver, and calling- upon this majority to take control of the party org-UTuzn-tion. Ilo decided instead to circulate the call among- such of the house democrats as favor the free coinag-e of silver, with a view to securing- their indorsement. The call is presented . only to democrats, and not to populists or free silver republicans. It is addressed "To the Democrats of tliu United States," and reads as follows: Xhn Cull. 'We, the undcrsijjuod democrats, present /or your consideration the following statement: 'We believe that the estubJishment of gold as the only monetary standard and the elimination of sllvor us • u lull lCKU.1 tumior money will increase tho purchasing poiver of each dollar, add to tho bunion of all debts, decrease the market value of another forms of property, pontinuo and intensify business depression, and, flc&lly,' reduce the majority of the people to financial bond;i«c. "We believe thut no party Oilfl 1)0|)0 for tin* during success In the United States so lontf us It advocates a sin«lo 'gold standard, and th.it the advocacy of sucli a. financial policy would be especially fatat to a party, which, like ttie democratic party, derives its voting strength from those who may, \vlthout reproach, be called the common people; and we point to the overwhelming defeat of tho party in 1894, to the opposition aroused by tlie veto of the seigniorage bill anil to tho still more unanimous protest against the issue, of gold bonds, as proof that the democratic party cannot Ue brought to tho support of the KOld standard policy. "We believe that the money question will be tho Issue in ISOOand will so remain until ll Is Kcttlod by the intelligence und patriotism of the American voters, "We 'believe that a large majority of the democrats of the United States favor bimetallism and realize that it can only be secured by-tic restoration of tuc free and unlimited','coinage of gold and sliver at the present™.uo, aud we < assert that the majority has and" should..exercise 1 tho rl;;ht, to control the policy of the party and retain tho party name.-.- : "We believe that it is tho duty of the majority and within their power to take charge of tho party'organizations and ma',;e the democratic party ah effective instrument in tho accomplishment of needed reforms.

TRADE REVIEW. FROM H008IERD03T. SEARCHING FOR THE DEAD. Another Alan l'lio~uc.ht tn Bo Still In Kulul of CnUap.ieil! >'e\v York BulldliijT. NEW YORK, March 2.— A gang- of 100 men toiled all niprht.at the work of removing the huge pile of debris in the buildings Nos. 151,;153, 155 and 157 Orchard street, ..which partly collapsed Friday af terri<>on.";Tb.e work was carried on by calcium fight without intermission almost from, the moment of the crash, and..between t. and 5 o'clock Saturday morning the workers' efforts •were rewarded by the recovery of two bodies from the wreck. Two more are believed to be stilt .buried in the ruins and two of th'e-Unjured died in the hospital' during 'the night. The two men who .are '"believed to be still missing' are •« believed to lie under the debris of; thd -basement of No. 153 and on the other*side of the party wall or else under a heap of ruins which still remain undisturbed on the west side of the building 1 in the basement of No. 155. It w impossible that they can be alive, as no living- creature could have possibly survived under the hug-e pile of masonry that^ell, but nevertheless the work of clearing- away the ruins is going on, without a break, that no chance of succor will be left untried. . .. f ,,;.....- .=.-*., •. : ".

Bow the llunlncn Munition Appear*- to Dun and Bra<Utr«et. NEW YOKK, March -.—R. O. Dun & Co.'s weelcly review 01 trade snys: "No gold KOCS out. though sterling cxchnnes has risen close to tho exporting point, Bad it does not yet appear ihat the syndicate has made any e3ort to control the exchange market The stock market ivaits abjectly for London, and foreigners show thus far more disposition to sell than to buy. Withdrawals or gold by redemption of legal tenders have BO; ceased, but since the closing of the syndicate contract have averaged about JliO.OOO per day. There is no essential change In tbo money market, though rates are somewhat higher. Agricultural products are a shade higher, but without any rc:uson which looks to future operations. More people aro idle In the (treat Industries than were idle last week, but not for reasons which distinctly af- lect the fucura. "Wheat is 1& cent hiprher. but clearly, not because western receipts are a trille less than a year afro, nor because exports from the At- lanrlc coast are small. Spasms of speculative activity must be expected during every season, and -when prices ure at the bottom such spasms can only mean an advance. Nothing Is seen to justify any material rise, as supplies in sight do not decrease more than they would nnuinilly on account of bad tvcathcr. Corn Is only a shade higher, with western receipts much smaller than last year. Cotton j dropped a ^eek ago to 5.5C cents, the lowo-^t point ever known since modern classillcuUons were adopted, and has not yet risen, thouirh the talk of Kreat reductions in acreage this your is as vigorous as ever. The whole market turns on the fact that the stocks of American cotton here and abroad are considerably larger than ever. . "The industries make very slow gains where they make auy. Nothing now can bo said of boois and shoes for tho market Is still unsettled by the controversy about prices. Xew orders arc sc:'.:uy and the main reason is that jobl-.ers have ou the whole large stocks on band, and are not now unxlous to increase them at higher prices. The demand for cotton goods is on tlie whole decidedly disappointing. The demand Jor woolen goods of the butter grade seems a little bettor than has been expected "The failures for throe weeks of February have shown liabilities amounting to S8,5£8,UC8 atalnst iHMttMlS for tho same weeks last year, in manufacturing $2,&5r.G50 uirainst !*.- U-io.S-17 last year, and in trading U5.250.330 neuins: jO.Mii.ffiU last year. Failures for tho week have been C50 in tho United States against, itil last year and in Canada SS against •c; last venr. " BnuLstreet's says: ••Wbile the course of general trade during tile lirst two months of the current year has been disappointing. February cuds and March bCRins with tangible, though not as yet satisfactory, signs of improvement It is encouraging to note that gains are reported In the volume nf trade at almost every southern city, notwithstanding advices from northern cities whose jobbers supply southern and southwestern markets, that low prices tot products had curiuilod purchasing ability at the south and southwest. Amonc larger eastern business centers no general evidences o£ improvement nro reported except a larger volume of trade In staple lines at Pittsburgh, together with better demand In the iron and steel trades. -At tho west there is less encouragement, Improvement being reported only from Louisville, Chicago, St. Louis and St. Paul. Mlidor weather has not favored tho business situation at the northwest. Stocks of general merchandise throughout the central and southwest are small and the number of buyers from those regions at Chicago is Increased, Like reports are received from St. Louis, where orders lor spring goods aro of fair volume, although buying continues conservative, competition inducing froquent concessions in price. General trade has preserred only a moderate volume at Cleveland, Kansas City. Omaha, Milwaukee, Duluth and , Minneapolis, where collections are fair only and the mild -weather is unseasonable."
