The next move by Gould is awaited with
interest. Just now it is not alone tho ques
tion of his gobbling up a steamship com
pany like tho Pacifio Mail, after
forcing Hart to practically get down
and out, or of making a grand
coup like that in the case of tho B. & O. Tele
graph that concerns the street. The
great point is whother theso things
will bring him baok to Wall street as
a dashing speculator as of old. Gould
long since announced his retirement from
tne speculative arena and has kept his word
as far as can be ascertained. But if Gould
puts his cash by the millions into various
enterprises and is constantly on tho
look out for fresh fields to conquer, the pro
sumption is that his own son will find it
necessary to como into the market if only to
protect their interests. Por a long timo tho
brokers have had llttlo or nothing to do.
Commaok, Bateman and tho rest of their
party furnish business for but a handful of
members, and unless matters improve there
will be plenty of Stock Exchango seats to be
had at low figures. The bears have been in
clover for somo timo and many holders
of stooks who soo their margins wasting
away under the ropeated knocks given to tho
market began to look hopefully to Gould as
the coming Moses who is to lead them safely
out of their present deplorable plight. Peo
ple who aro seldom wrong say that when
Gould gets Mackay to consent to
a sale of tho opposition cable,
he will make things hum as ho did in 1881-82,
when everything from tho Al dividend payer
down to the " fancy " was sont kiting.

Da In To-morrow Moraine's " World,"
Jubt before sundown on tho night of Washing
ton's birthday, Feb. tt, 1818, the National and
State Savings Banks of tho torn of Bccter, Me.,
were robbed and tho treasurer, J. W. Barron,
us asaautled and his almost lifeless body
found bleeding and unconscious In tho bank
vaults. Although the great Iron doors of tbe aafea
were wide open their valuahlo contents were
undisturbed and tho only booty secured by the
robbers was about $800 in money and a $300
bond, which waa not negotiable, and which
was taken from tho caah drawer. For
more than nlno years tho murder of
Treasurer Barron and tho history of the robbery
havo remained an unfathomable mystery. In the
Interval designing or malicious persons started the
theory that Mr. Barron, fearing oxposuro for
alleged defalcations, had committed suicide. Thla
theory obtained such currency In Doxter that tbe
widow has been socially ostracized by a large pro
portion of her neighbors there.
Some three weeks ago the New Tork World
learned that a young man In Maine had confessed
to his full knowlcdgo of the murder, and that his
father and some others were the murderers. A
Would reporter secured a full statement from
this young man, Charles Francis Stair, and, In
company with Sheriff Mitchell, of Maine, to-day
arrested and locked up David Stain, charged
with the murder ot Cashier Barron. Til Would
of to-morrow morning will publish a twelve-column
account of how the confession waa made and pro
cured, the search fur corroborative teattmony, the
wsy In which the accused was locsted and ar
rested and young Stain's confession In full. A
part of this confession 1b herewith given. After
tilling how Stain, tho cldir, Oliver Smith, alias
Cromwell, a well-known criminal, two other men
and himself reached tho neighborhood of Dexter
with a well-laid plan for robbing tho bank, young
" While I waited with tbe team at Bingham and
next day at Solon, rr-imwell .and father went Into
Dexter and made a rcoonnoisanee of the bank.
Andrews, Thompson and Keely had made Impres
sions of all the outside and Imlde doors of the
building, which contained both the National and
Savlugi bank, averal private utloes and a Maaoulo
Hall In the top story. During tho day the building
waa almost entirely deserted, and father and the
rest ot the gang, by means or their skeleton keys,
tntjttd tbe build.ug ami made a tour uf lnspectiou.
Durlnc tbe forenoon Billy bcott entered tbe building
by means of a akeleton key and took a position in
the Moaonlo Uall In the top of tho building, where
he could watch those who camo In and out 01 the
balldlcg. While Scott waa on watch In the Maaonlo
Uall father aud Cromwell were In an offlce which
Andrews had taken right oppoalte tbe bank. He
pretended to be an agent for a Consequent firm.

who had an office there. In a short tlmu this Insur
ance agent came out again and, as they supposed,
everything waa clear. In soma way, however,
Cashier Barron had entered the building during tbe
"After the Insurance agent left hla offlce, father
and Cromwell came down from Andrews'a bogus
office across the street, let tbtnuelveatnto the bank
building by their talso keys and locked the door
after them. They proceeded upstairs. Father pro
duced a key, opened a door which led Into the
bank, and whan they had entered locked tho door
again. This was tbe outer room of the bank, aud
father walked through It to the door that enters the
BUML1B AMD THKiSUBEn VICE TO PACK.
'He put hla hand to tbe knob, opened tbe door
and suddenly stood face to face with Treasurer
liaxron, who, at tbe aame moment, had hla hand on
the knob on the other aide, on his way back from
tbe coal-closet, carrying a hod ot coal In one hand
and a flre-ahovel In the other. Instantly an I with
out a word father pulled a slnug-snot from bis
pocket and struck Mr. llarrou on the right aide of
the face. Barron staggered, and In another mo
ment fattier atruok him another blow with ths
along-shot on the top of the bead and
Barron fell to the floor. Ho was not,
however, unconscious, and tried to rise,
when rather leaped forward and struct blm a third
blow, again on tbe head. Cromwell theu jumped
forward, grasped him by the throat, alung s noose
around his neck aud pullod It tight, while father
forced a gag Into the prostrnte man's mouth aud
knotted It at the back ot nil head. 'Ibey then pro
ceeded to handcuff hla hands behind his back, and
laid tbe handcuff key on tho floor behind h in. At
this time he waa unconscious. Father look Bar
ron's keys from bis pocket and thrust thorn Into his
own pocket. Then Cromwell and father together
lifted Barron, carried him Into the vault and laid
him on the floor. The great Iron door of one of
the safes waa open, but neither father nor Cromwell
dared to make an examination of the content of
tte vault. Ther hastily closed the door. Father
drew Barron's keys from Ms pocket and unlocked
the money drawer In the front room of the btnk.

In Maaonlo Uall above, hurried down stairs snd
knocked on the door of the bank. Father and Crom
well both together asked, "What's the matter,
Billy?' Ue replied! 'I'm afraid something U
wrong; w had better get out of here. ' Father un
locked the door aiid tot J Soottthat they had sur
prised Barron in the bank aud had knocked him
down snd garged htm. Scott said Immediately 1
My God, boys, we've got to get ont of this, snd
there's no tune to loose, either. Hla friends or
somebody will be sround here before long looklus
for him.' Father and Cromwell paaaed down the
main atalrcaae, opened the frontdoor with false
keys, locked It alter them snd walked unconcernedly
down the street. Scott let himself out
of the baok window of the building
and Joined the other two further
down the street. Andrews Joined the three on the
street and secreted them somewhere In Dexter un
til after sundown. The three then oame out ot
their hiding place and got Into a wagon that was
wattlnar for them and were driven rapidly to Solon,
arriving there about midnight. I dldnt arrive
there nttttl i o'clock with ray teem, In accord
ance with the orders given me by father. Crom
well an J Sco'.t stared at 3cldcn Thompaon'i tots,
at Solon, that night. I took father Into my wagon
at o'clock and drove to North Anson. The
next morning Cromwell and Scott took the early
stage to North Anion and Joined father and my
self. I drove the three to ftkowheg in. During the
drive I heard the full history of the attempted rob
bery and the murder.
' We did not know until we reached Ukowhegan
!'jb; the assault oa Treasurer Barron had proved
fatal. On arriving there my father bought a copy
of the Dally nirvram and there found the an
nouncement of the murder. The only thing m
father aald when he looked at the paper wast For
God's sake, toys, wha'.j to be done?' Scott and
Cromwell seised ths paper and a glance at the
headlines showed them what they had dona. It
was Immediately agreed that the gang ahonld sep
