THE CRISIS IS PASSED.
SCENE OF WILD EXCITHMENT IN
A Panic Occasioned by tho Reported
lTIniinciul EmbarriiBsmont, of Raring
Urn. Tho Rank of England Clime to
tlio Rescue Catastrophe Averted.
Nnw Yokk, Nov. 15. Private cobles received
beforo tbo opening of the Stock Exchange an
nouncing tbe troubles of Daring Drothers, and
stating Unit the Dank of England, Dotbscbtlds,
and other bankers had taken up accounts of
Daring Drothers amounting to 15,000,000, cre
ated a profound sensation.
The stock market was again tbo scene of
wild cxcltcmeut. aud a positive panic existed
in all portions of tbe list, stocks being thrown
over In the most reckless manner, and tho
losses In the first hour's trading exceeded any
thing seen 6inco tho present decline began.
There was rather a firm feeling at tbo open
ing, but Ihe rumors and private cables which
wero shown, stating that the Darings wero in
financial difficulties and that heavy liquidations
must come, started tho ball rolling immediately,
and every one was trying to sell. Dealings were
simply enormous, and the rapidity with which
quotations melted away was something unpre
cedented. At 11 A. 31. a panic prevailed, prices gave
way in every direction, and brokers were dis
mayed at tbo prospect. Lackawanna, tbo fa
vorite investment stock, led in tho down
ward rush with a decline of 9 per
cent, from 1321 to 125. Atchison held
down;to21, Rock Islaud to 03 J, andifsugar to
50, the lowest prices on record for those stocks.
Canada Southern aud other regular dividend
payers were thrown over as well as tbe specu
lative 6tocks, Canada Southern dropping to 43.
After 11:15 there was a rally caused by tbe fol
lowing cable from Loudon:
"The guarantee fund to Baring Brother &
Co. i6 stated to amount to ten millions ster
ling. The various financial banking discount
bouses guaranteeing tho accounts stito that
the crisis is over and the failure of
tbe firm has been averted. Kidder, Pea
Tjoily it Co., who are the agents here
of Daring, Brother it Co., London, say they
have private advices from London that what
ever trouble there may have been there has
been completely arranged. The trouble was
doubtless caused entirely by the depres
sion in Argentine securities. Our house
is in no wise affected. Thomas Daring, who Is
now at the office of Kidder, Peabody it Co.,
states that he has nothing to add to the above
statement by Kidder, Peabody it Co."
-- London, Nov. 15. Tbe '1 hues, referring
the financial situation, says:
"The city has passed through a crisis verging
upon a panic. Such a time has not been known
since the suspension of Overend, Gurney it
Co. We rejoice that we are able to announce
that the worst is over. The Dank of England
has added to its historic services to tbe State
and commercial community by its prompt action
in averting what would have been a lamentable
catastrophe. The administration of tho bank not
only provided vast reinforcements to its stock
of gold to meet exceptional demands in tbo
event of a panic, but also stepped out of tho or
dinary routine of business to prevent tho down
fall of one of the greatest and most respected
English financial bouses, which had for somo
days been in peril, and which, if it bad fallen,
would probably have brought down in wide
spread ruin a largo number of smaller, but im
Tho Dank of England has subscribed 1,000,
000, three joint stock companies have given
750.000 each, and two others 500,000 each to
assist Daring Brothers. Several other houses
have subscribed smaller amounts, all tho
subscriptions making a total of 10,000,000
pounds. This will constitute a guarantee fund
for three years. It is roughly estimated that
tho total liabilities of the firm, including 10,000
000 pounds in acceptances, amount to 21,000,000
pounds while tho assets at present prices are
valued at 21,000,000 pounds.
The government has authorized tho Dank of
England, if necessary, to issue an additional
2,000,000 in notes, aud will suspend tbo bank
act if requisite.
' Tho original cause of the firm's troublo was
Russia's withdrawal of several millions depos
its on tho learning of tho firm's dealings in Ar
gentine and Uruguay bonds. It is oxpeeted in
coming investors will gradually relievo tho
strain on the market.

O'Shea to make any defense lit tho action for
divorce brought against her by her husband and
tbo failure of Mr. Parnell to appear in court to

utter collapse of the defense is tantamount to
an acknowledgement of guilt to tho court, and

PROP. KOCH'S DISCOVERY.
HE HOLDS SUPREME SWAT OVEK
Exeltomont Intensified by tho Pitblicntlon
of tlio Professor's Stntoinnnt Inquiries
Pouring in From Amorlcunnd Europe
Tlio Secret Revealed to His Intimates.
Copyright by Now York Associated Press.
BnnuN, Nov. 15. Professor Koch holds su
preme sway over public Interest. Tho publica
tion of tho professor's statement yesterday has
Intensified tho excitement both here aud
abroad, and from every centre of Europe aud
Amorica telegrams of inquiry aro pouring in on
Koch, Pf uhn. Cornel, Bergmann, and tho other
medical men who aro known to bo engaged iu
treating patients by tho new method. Koch's
clinique, In Albrcchts strasse, tho Imperial
Sanitary Institute, Relchs Gcsundhcltsault,
where Cornel and other Kochists aro at work,
arc swamped with letters and personal applica
tions. Many medical men, (including a
number of English and American physicians,
havo been studying tho process under Dr Levy
In tho 6inall wards of a private hospital at 20
Preslauer strasso, where Professor Koch first
achieved striking results with small means.
Here, since October, eight prominent eures of
consumptives havo been in progress. Dr. Levy
every morning shows his patients to the visit
ing physicians, and illustrates tho peculiar
features of tho method as visible In individual
cases. Addressing a group of physicians in his
private laboratory Dr. Levy said: "Tho remedy
not only attacks particular places and
groups of bacilli, but rapidly
annihilates all .tubcrculos bacilli with which
bodios aro infested. Wo now know that the
curative matter acts equally upon all groups.
The first care is to free the organism from
bacilli. To attain this end wo apply massage
at an early stage of the treatment to the
glands, joints, etc., affected by turber
culosis, iu order to force the bacilli
which havo encased themselves in cysts
into the blood channels where we can more
easily reach them than when they aro iu those
parts where the circulation has little influence.
After tho massage and the injection subdue tbe
bacilli, all that remains to be done in cases of
tuberculosis of the bones is to remove tho dead
pieces of bone aud to restore tho general health
of tho patient."
Dr. Pfuhl reports a strikingly rapid cure of
lung tubercles. The patient was a man aged
forty-two years. Ho had been ill for six years
and his case was apparently hopeless. Tho' first
Injection was mado on November 5.
Tho usual symptoms followed after
the Injection. The inereaso in fever
and sickness wero followed by a distinct change
in the character of tho sputum aud a notable
cessation of tho characteristics of consumption.
Dr. Pfuhl promises the patient that, though It
cannot replace the parts of tho lung that are
gone, tho remedy will Insure a healthy reten
tion of the smallest portion left.
Tho secret of tho composition of the lymph
has been communicated to Professors Berg
mann, Fraentzel, Brleger, Levy, and other in
timates of Professor Koch here; also to Pro
fessor Wcieart, of Frankfort; Dr. Rast, chief
of the Hamburg Hospital, and Professor N.
Nothuagel, of tho Vienna University.
Professor . Nothnagcl, addressing tho
students of tho university, said: "We
face one of tho greatest intellectual
achievements in tho province of medicine
for centuries past. Professor Koch's discovery
has a far wider scope than Jenner's, and Is per
haps tho grandest feat in tho history of our
science. What inspires mo with admiration is
not so much tho actual discovery as tho mothod
of bacteriological research, which must serve
as a basis of all futuro discoveries
in that line. Tho present moment is
among the most sublime that humau
Ity has known." Tho students shared the
fervor of Professor Nothnagcl and cheered him
to tho echo. Professor Billroth holds that Pro
fessor Koch's method places it beyond doubt
that a remedy will bo found beforo loug for
cancer, which Is still tho greatest mystery in
medlca, as experience iudicates that carcinoma
has a baccllllc origin.
The only skeptical criticisms of Koch's dis
covery como from French medical men. Pro
fessor Bronardel, doyen of tho Paris medical
faculty, Is reported to havo written a letter, in
which he advises Incredulity regarding tho ofll
cacy of tho remedy until its nature is fully
known aud scientific proof given of Its effect
iveness. "Until wo know" says Professor Brouardel,
"tho composition of the remedy, tho history of
tho experiments on animals, and the prolonged
therapeutic effects on patients no one ought to
pronounce definitely on tho method."
M. Pasteur and Professor Bouchard aro said
to be withholding their opinion for similar rea
