Until Fob. 5, and Bids Received for
Washington' Jnn. . The an
nouncement Inst night that the sec
retary lind asked for bids for n bond
Issue of $100,000,000 was n surprise to
the Biibordnnnta ocllllnls of tho trona

A POPULAR LOAN.
"Speculation concerning tho amount
and character of tho now bond Issue
was set at rest Into last night when
Secretary Carlisle made public a cir
cular on the subject. Tho loan will bo
a "popular" one, and tho circular,
which is dated January 0, gives notice
that tho government will sell 8100,
000,000 no-year, 4 per, cent coupon or
registered bonds, dated February 1,
18P.), for which purchasers will bo re
quired to pay In gold coin or gold

of a possible further lssuo of bonds

It was almost midnight when Sec
rotary Carlisle's circular was mndc
public, too late an hour to obtain tho
opinion of public men on the action
of tho government or the prospect of
tho absorption of tho bonds by tho
people. Tho fact that tho bonds will
bo Issued in tho sums of $50 and
multiples thereof, and be payable In
Installments, Is a feature which it is
believed will make them bo regarded
with populnr favor.
Tho main reason for dating tho
bonds a year back is said to bo In
order to give tho public a better op
portunity to Judgo their market value
by comparing them with tho gold 4s
Issued at that time, so that their bids
can bo mado to conform with tho
market value of those bonds on tho
ilrst of February.
