The K( York Stock Market Rises Gold Coming from Abroad Annual Report of tko Allouea Copper Mine Wlseonslsi Central and Other Koada la January Atekl- son Ear nines. Boston, Tneadaj, March 43 P. M. Local monetary matters arc not any eaaier. One loan waa mada aa high as 8 per cent, at the cloar-l,( bo n, a thia morning, other tranaactlona between the banka holding at' 7 par cant. Natnr-ally, anck a nondltlon of affairs betw an tba banka brings street tmsinesa almoat to a atanditUl. Th banka Inn marked np outstanding call losna 1 1 7 her cant aa a role, and while there may bo an exceptional transaction in naw money nndar that quotation la la dna to special clrcnmitancea and hardly can be quoted aa allowing tho condition of iha market. 798 per cant, moat bo quoted on call, with time ratea little better than nominal at from 5 to 7 par cant. An eight per cent, rate prevailed at the clearing bouae lata In 18M5 and not tlnce until t-'dzy, if memory la correct. The New York altnatlon la eaaier, ratea on oil ruling at 4 . 5 per cent, today. The ateamahlp La Normandie from Havre brought 2,000,000 franca to New York and (1,400,000 more la understood to bo on the way from Holland. Gold Importations are a powerful factor for easier feeling In tho money market. At tho clearing bouae, balances between tba hanks loaned at 7 8 per cenLand Naw York funds Bold at from 10 .0 centa per (1000 discount. The exchangee were (15,917I5C9, against (16,031.481 a year ago today, and the balances were (1,823,-ftiO.

The directors' report through Mr. John Stanton, treasurer, gives an Interesting summary of work at the mine, reasons for suspension thereof, and prospects ot resumption The collapse of the "French syndicate" resulted In n drop In the market price of copper to about n cent per pound less than tho Allooea coat of production, and tbs stamp mill cessed operation! the latter part of October. Kaye the report The experience we bad gained In working the "Attunes lode" Indicated that the best result conld only oe obtained by opening ground extensively, end then, by selecting tbe richer portion ot the "lode for removal, to increase me average yield of the rock stamped. This would require mure compressor power and drills, anil tba investment of mure capital in extending openings. Tba unexpected change in the condition ot the cupper market, due to an unprecedented demand from manufacturers, came tuo late In tbe year to prevent tbe suspension of production, but aa soon aa it became evident that the "aynaicats" stocks, while rapidly decreasing, were being handled with prudence by the bankers controlling them, that the era ot low plicae was parsing away, and that tho market was getting on a comparatively safe basis, it was determined to push the openings aa fast aa possible, and to resume production as soon as a stock of Inel and supplies could be gotten together, nnd entbeient ground opened in tba mine to allow a regular output of five bandied tons daily. It waa also decided to erect another compressor of capacity to provide for ail probable wants for a long time to come, besides some u.inor improvements designed to facilitate production ; and an assessment of fifty cents per share, payable Fab. 20, 1820, was levied in order to provide for this work and pay tor needed supplies, etc. It ie expected that the stamp mill -will start work May 1st, next, and that when everything Is in lull working order wa shall be able to make a larger product than at any former time, and it tiie copper market rules at about present prices that the results will be satisfactory. Agent Smiths report says: "At present wa are engaged In opening the mine with ail possible vigor for early resumption of producing copper. About May 1 wa will be in good shape to atari the stamp miil. All the openings now progressing an at present in copper gronnd except the sixteenth level, which will have to be driven about fifty feet before we can reasonably look for copper. On the whole I should say that the pros pecta are quite favorable, and that the opening of ground will be extensive enough by the time above mentioned for a full supply of rock for the mill. Tresent price of copper prevailing wil. bow a fair profit over operating expenses. 1 he Texas Street Railway ft Laud Company has been organised by Boston, Chicago and Texas Capitalists fur the purpose of buying and operating street railwaye in Texas cities. The capita' stock la (500,000; bonds issued (250,000. The directors are ilwri. J. o. Wetherbee, Nathaniel J. Rusk, Albert D. Bosson and Walter Potter of Boa. ton; Franklin H. Watrlia and Hon. Abner Taylor of Chicago ; W. M D. Lea of Leavenworth, Kan., and T. J. Harley of Fori Worth, Tex. Mr. Harley is president, Mr. Rusk vloe president, Mr. Wet her bee treasurer, and Mr. K. C. Bnnnam sec retary. The company already has acquired the Austin City Street Railway system and the Gainesville systeqi, both with exclusive charters, and the town Improvement company of tha last-named cltf. These properties have no floating indebtedness and have money in the treasury and era In growing cities, Austin being tba capital of tho Htate. Tho stock in placing by private subscription. The Tamarack det lares tbe nsual (3 quarterly dividend, payable April 1 to stockholders of record March 10. The Manhattan Railroad dine ton have adopted a resolution to retire outstanding scrip interest April 1, and it is understood that next Tuesday dividends will ha ordered paid on a cash basis. Tba assistant treasurer of tba United Htatas at Now York will reoeiva projioaals until noon Friday for tba sale to the treasury of about (108,000 An Union and Central Pacific lint mortgage bon da, proposals to state tha dates of maturity, month and year. Secretary Wlndom will receive offers of 4s without farther notice, bat he will not state the price at which he will accept them. To th a financial Editor ot tha Transcript: Th-Bunday Herald says that Siessr. Kldd-r. Peabody ft Co., for themselves and Messrs. Beligman ft Co., have sold at 93 to tho Atebiaon, Topska ft (antard Railroad Company (5,600,000 of second mortgage 4 per e nt. bonds of the Atlaatie ft Pacific Railroad company, of tbe Issue of 8ei-tember, 1689, which thov, Kidder. Peabody ft Co. and Beligman ft Go., b ngh; at 90; and that tha Atchison company ha paid, or is to pay, for ita share iu ita own uv erst mortgage 4 per cent, bonds at tba maikot prion. I should like to know first, whether there is any foundation whatever for tbe atory; second, whether, supposing it to be trna. the exchange of perfectly good 4 par cant, first mortgage bonds, apparently as sale aa Government aecuntle. at 63 or so, for second mortgage fours of a road in snob a condition aa the Atlantia ft Pacific, at 93. is a sample of tha way in which tba Interests of the atook-boluera are to be taken care ot by tba now management; third, where the Atchison company gets ita own 4 per cent bonds to pay vl. A supposed all Ua bonds ere owned by aubsorlbers or bone holders in good faith. COXORES fiTKEKT. Aueuvr. Thera is foundation for the atory, and this la it: Tho Atebiaon and tho BL Louis A Ban Francisco companies received from tha Atlantic ft Pacific in September, 1888, a total of (5,600,000 second mortgage bonds of tho last-named company aa payment for advancei made by the two first named under tho Joint operation thereof to meet deficits, etc. There bonds warn second mortgage 6s and received tha guarantees of the Atebiaon and Ban Francisco companies both as to principal and interest, each one-half, but not Jointly, aa wa understand. That ia, tho bonds re divided between the two companies which placed their guarantees on their respective proportions and then sold tha same. tha Atchison's half to Kidder, Peabody ft Co. ; the Bt. Louis ft Ban Franclaeoa half to the Beligmans. Tho Inter at on the (2,800,000 bond sold by the Atchlst n became a direct obligation of tha company. In t o reorganisation plan of the Atebiaon (circular No. C3, Oct. 15, 1889.) It waa stated that even Irenes of bonds. Including those Atlantic ft Faciflc second mortgage 6a wars "to be the subject of special treatment in the future," (22,476.000 of tha naw general mortgage 4s being reserved against them. Tba company now arranges for tho treatment of the bonds ia question. They are outstanding, with a direct guarantee of six percent, interest by the Atchison company, and are funded into tha general mort-gsge Ss reserved for tbla purpose on terms satisfactory to the company. Tha resulting saving ie two per cent, per annnm on (2,800,000 bonds, or (56,000. Our correspondent is mistaken in calling tha Atlantic ft Pacific second mortgage bonds 4s, they being Cs, hence much of hie indignation is unwarranted. It it, in abort, simply tho carrying out by tbe company of one of tbe details of the reorganisation plan heretofore nnarranynd, but expressly indicated in the circular which gave the plan, on page 18, second section.

A despatch from Denver announces . the arrival at Peach Springe Cation of the surveying party sent out by the Denver, Colorado ft Pacifie Railroad Company in December lest to endeavor to find e practicable roots through this glgantlo gorge. Tha disastrous ending of a former expedition, by which President T. M. Brown end two others were drowned in July last will be recalled. With the exception of perhaps e few reckless voyagenrs who have mads the portions journey. Lieutenant Powell ia tho only one who bee previously accomplished this dangerous undertaking. Hie 'aocconnt of tho journey, although buried in the pages ot an official report, ie one of the most fascinating stories of daring adventure ever published. The following extract from the letter of a correspondent of the Denver Republican, who waa connected with the party, will be of interest in this connection: To givoyon an idee of the number of tha rapids from tho head of the Colorado River to thia point, near the month of the Little Colorado River, a distance of about 290 miles, I will say that there ere jnat 200 replde, not counting email draws or riffles, and from Lees Ferry to this point, n distance of eighty miles, there ere jnst 100 rapids. We have ran the greeter pert of this 100 end port-aged but few, end over many of them onr boats have danced end lamped et tho rate of fifteen miles an hour, ana over some, by actual measurement, et tbe rate ot twenty miles per boor torn half smile ate time. Bunding in tbe bow of one of the boats as ebe goes through one of these cbntae, with first the how end then tbs erera jumping into tho air ea ebe shoots from wave to wave, with the spray of tho breakers daablcg over ones heed, is something tho exsite meat end fascination of which can only be understood by being experienced. That part of Marble Canon from Point Retreat for forty miles down to the month of the Little Colorado River is far tbe most beentifnl end interesting 04 Bon we have yat paased through. At point Retreat the marble wills stand np perpendicularly tbree bnndred feet from the waters edge, while the sandstone above benches beck in Mopes end cliff to SQCO feet high. Juki bet end this tho c.6on is narrowest, being but n little over three hundred feet wide from well to well, while the river in places at this stage of water la not over sixty feet wide. The marble rapidly rise till it stands in perpendicular cliffs 700 to 800 feet high, covered witn ell tbe tinta of tbe rainbow, bat mostly red. In many places toward the top it is honeycombed with caves, caverns, arches nnd rrottues, with here and there n natural bridge left from one crag to another, making e most grotesque end wonderful picture as onr little boats glide along that quiet portion of the river so many hundred feet below. At tte foot of these cliffs in many places ere fountains of pure, sparkling water, gnaning ont from the rock, in one place, Vaasey Paradlne, everal bnndred feet np the wail, and dropping doan among shrabbeiT, ferns end dowers, some of which, even et thu time of tbe jeer, were toned in bloom. Below thie for some distance, era e number ot these fountains, with large patches of tbe maiden-beir ferae clinging to the wall, fifteen or twenty feet above the vrer, green and fr-sh a in tbe month of May, end with tha rmkling water running down over them they make n most charming picture. 1 EZCUT DEATHS. Professor Charles Lease how, who died n few days ago, came to Baltimore ea the leader of the first orchestra that ever gave symphony concerts in the United States.
