ThPre wa* an overwhelmtng raah of gold into ,

and ? boom In the market for atocka and bonda I
Tnere was a feellng of Becurlty and of cotlfl
deireln lhe future. which bad not eatated In a
long time. The convlctlon was general thal tho j
Mlftarr-ara ol dlatroa! and dlatttrbance would
-on- be lutceeded by at leaal four yeara of proa- {
perltv nnd abundani ?
Th* Btriklng teature of the altuatlon was the j
jijamfi of hoardera of gold to depoelt it ta the i
baaka lt la not too much to say tbal the de- I
poslts ln the Natlonal and Btate banka of New- j
Tork for the dav w.-re ftOOfcOOu. Very llkely j
the total waa greater. The re, .rd in the Na
Hoaal Park Bank waa Int-reatlng, aa ahowlng
Ibe way In which gold poured in. In detall and j
in the order ta whlcb th.-y ware recelved the
pokl depoalta In this bank were: 113.834, $143,

1000,000, Ita average alnce Tueaday had been

agalnat $31,000,000 oa Monday. There la room
In tho Clearing Houae vaults for $105,000,000
|g gold. Not only was hoarded pold poured IntO
the hanks. but also hoarded greenbacka and
othe- kinds of paper money. The banka, In
short. were Bltnoet i verwhelmed with offarlnga
of g'ild and Ulla. There was no longer any
reason for hoarding. because the stability of the
cotintry's currency had been established beyond
t,uestlon by the vote of the people. rending the
result of the electlon. the money had been kept
for the most part ln safe deposit vaults and in j

ONE OF THEM IS THE PRISOXER. "TTIONPBOII."*
WHO HAS IJE.N HELD UV CAPTAIN
()IJRir-;N- FOR SKVKRAt. DAYS.
Asslstant Dlstrlct-Attorney Battte yesterday
told the atory of the myaterlous prlsoner wbo
has been held at Pollce Headquartere for tba
last few days. and who \?as aald to be connected
?.Mth a gang of forgers. Mr. Battle, tn glvlng OUt
the atory, leferred to a volume of typewrlttan
matter .vhlch contalned the history of the al
leged forgerlea Detectlve Dougherty, of tbe
Plnkerton Agency, which had worked up tbe
case at the order of the American Bankere' Aa
BO-Ultloa, supplied sorne missing linkB In Mr.
Battle. narratlv*.
Beveral detectives from Pollce Headqu__rta_i
were present when Mr. Battle told the atory.
Ha said that ln June last three men entered Into
8 comWnation to commit extenaive robberlea.
Those men were Wai ter B. Peters. Wlllla H.
Connor and W. F. Smlth. Their plan was to
swindle the bank? by means of forged caah
iers' chc ks. Peters was a llthographer by
trade, and it was hls part to make the checka,
which purpeeted to be drawn by one bank on
another. The flrst forged check that they trled
to utter waa one BUppootd to be drawn by the
Lincoln National Bank of Chlcago on the L>in
coln National Bank of N"W-York.
A numlicr of other forged checks w*ro also
made. and s.^nt by Peters to Connor and Smlth
at vaiiou tOWUS in Indlana and other States.
The two la.t-named men passed themselves off i
travelllng asJasmnn and ptetended that the
who sent them the checka waa their emph>_er.
Tbey suceeJed in gettlng rld of _ number of
tbeae wortWesa checks on the proprietors of dif
f.iu-.t hotels at which they stopped. About
September 10 last, Peters and Smlth came to
thla dty and stayed at the Hotel Marlborough,
reglatering as n. S. Matthews and C. C. Jonee,
from Port Wayne, Ind. They were well dressed
and quict ln their belta vior, and attracted llttle
notlee. Peters bonght a lithogrr.pher's stone.
and taking it to his rooia In the hotel. started
to mak.' more bank checks. About this tlme
they became suspicious and ieft the Marlbor?
ough for the Hotel Albert. at Eleventh-st. and
Unlveralty Plaea. They made a forged check on
tii- Park National I'ark of Cleveland, payable
to F. A. Lestle, to tha amount of fl-S. Another
check tbal aas nuute by the men was passed on
J. lt. Williard & Co.. broken, at No. BB Broad?
way. They passed thla check by speeulattng ln
stocks through these broktra, and when they
owed th,- brokera ?*."?.">. they gave them the check
in question, recelvlng the difference In cash.
.\Ir. Battle said that at least elght of the forged
checka w.-rc passed In this State. and abput
