Dun A Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: The Signs of monetary disturbance which were noticed in previous renews were not misleading. Money loaned on Thursday at half a cent p-jr day pre- mium, or about 190 per cent., and most of the loans were at a quarter premium. Money for commercial loans is very scarce. Tho obvious and only sufficient relief is the liquidation of money specu- lations in stocks, in wheat, corn, oars, cotton, leather, bides, coffee, wool and especially in silver bullion, which have locked up enormous sums. In silver alono about ten millions have been locked up to wait for higher prices: in grain several times ;'.s much, and in other products many millions, while tho condition of the market for securities was indicated by thv fail, averaging about S3 per share in a siuglo day on bocauio Testimony as to Business ods In the Pension Office.

Ti will not bo tho fault of Frank or due to any deficiency in bis powers of persuasion, if every employe of. tho New York Central railroad who is a member of the various orders identified with the Federation of Railroad Employes does not find himself enrolled ander the ban- ner of the strikers by sundown to-day. The Grand Master of tho Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen reached here Friday afternoon, with his mind fully mado'up that tho exigencies of the situ- ation demanded heroic action. Immedi- ately upon his arrival he was met by Grand Secretary Dobs and the two had a conference of over an hour's duration. Then Debs hurried olf in search of Oeorgo Howard. Grand Chief of tho of ConluuMrs. and of Grand Master Wilkinson, of the Broth- erhood of Railway Trainmen, who slipped in hour in ad- van'-e of Sargent. Having- corralel fieri. D.'bs piloted them to liis re-sidi'ivjo. WIKTO the trio went into consultation with '-losed and drawn blinds. Tao imporianco of Howard's participation lays in the fact that his colleagues, Grand Secretary j and Treasurer Carr, and Assistant Chief Moore, have been unablo, in conse- quence of the short notice given, -to reach here in time for to-day's meeting of the Supremo Council of the Federa- tion. It is within Howard's scope and authority to anpoint substitutes for the absentees. Should ho fail to do so the gathering would come to naujrht from the fact that tho ironclad constitution expressly provides that a full member- ship of "twelve must be in attendance before a strike can bo ordered. It i? understood that Howard was at a little dubious regarding assuming the responsibility of appointfn? substi- tutes. but that he anally yielded to the arguments presented- At any rate, it is stated that a full representa- tion of the conductors will participate in the conference- If the Federation decides to order a general strike to-day it will be basod upon the ground that the present fight is one of orcanizt-1 capital against or- panized labor. This was expressly stated by Grand M.-.sicr Sargent. That oCcial is primed wiih facts and figures that, will takf.- over hours, he says to present, to thr- Sv.preroo Council.

In addition the enormous imports, in- tended to anticipate the tariJ bill, have virtually r.-i for -in in- definite time many 'ni'lions paid for good's and in duties on them. Tho vol- ume of legitimate the country continues larsre. cxcei'iling that of last year by ton por cent outside New York, and tho cli-sire to market products quickly causes grcuter demand for currency from tho country than usual. The iron industry still shows a sirong demand fo. finished j'l-o.lvu ts, with soiuo stiffening in prices, i.i'.t tho supply ol pig iron is so largo that prices are shaded in urgency w sell.

Tho cars were taken a point on the out- skirts of tho city to tho top of tho moun- tain, a distance of live miles.

This consumed about thirty min- utes. On the top of the mountain them is a high stone tower where the passi-n- crers wore allowed to alight and enjoy the scenery. There arc different stories as to tho cause of tho accident, but it appears that when tho tower was reached, tho point where the gravity point of the road commences, tho engine was de- tached and the car ran away, whilo tbe passengers were still on board. The distance to tho point of starting is fivo miles and it is said that this was cov- ered by tho runaway car in about three minutes, the car attaining an estimated speed of eighty miles an hour. It re- mained on the track to tho foot of the plane, goin around all the curves, while the passengers shrieked in their fright and several jumped oil. At tho foot of the piano tbe car jumped tho track and landed upside down at the bottom of a fifty-foot embankment, with tho passengers impris-mod within the car. Doctors and ambulances wore hurriedly sent for. Four persons wero taken out dead and a number injured. Among the killed were Charles Rettcw, aged fiftv-iivo, conductor of tho car; Ed- irai- M.
