GERM AM CREDIT. ITS VALUE IN AMERICA. REMARKABLE SLUMP TAKES PLACE. NEW YORK, Thursday. The German mark has row reached its lowtst point in the history of the American it is cji.ou in New York at 4 marks—74g cents. Simultaneously, the value of the sterling: exchar.re has risen to 4.75i, the highest point reacned since September. The decline in the value of marks and kronen (Austrian) lias been accompanied by a still more sensational depreciation in the amount realisable her,- for German and Austrian bonds. The thousand mark Five per Cent. German bonds, which were originally worth 237 dollars 50 cents, are now quoted at 198, while German Fours are listed at 180. The havoc wrought in the Teutonic ei- change is still greater in the case oi the bonds of the Dual Monarchy. In view of the rela, tively small amounts purchased by the Teutonic allies from this country, the differ- ence in their banking position here com- pared with that of Great Britain ie the sub- ject of much sig-nificant discussion. The corresfiondent adds that if Germany has imported through Scandinavia, in the ten months ended October, American goods to the value of 27 million sterling, in the same months American imports from Germany amounted to £ 2,557,500. The tremendous losses in the exchange value of the mark have. therefore, been suffered in the effort to finance an adverse trade balance of sligh.lv less than £ 25.000,000.—(" Times." i THE REASON. Keuters correspondent says: Experts attri- bute the decline in the German exchange to the isolation of Germany, which has praoti- cally ceased altogether to xpo-t. its products to America.
