Although this move Is considered a temporary expedient with the prime purpose of influencing the delibera tions at Paris, official financial circles would welcome this revision as indicating a general solution of the present schedule of gold payments, which Gbaneelof Wirth has declared, Germany is in no position to carry out, particularly since the recent collapse of German exchange. Officially it was stated Sunday that the Reiehsbank was technically In a position to deliver 50,000,000 gold marks next week, but that their release from bank vaults would "badly expose" the Institution, whose officials believe that this available gold fund shall be devoted to steadying the mark at home and abroad.
