THE MARKLE FAILVKJS. I
A Unrprlnlnir Event for Which Titer
Honnu No dood Cause.
riTTSBono, March 28. The failuro of CL
R. Markle & Co. is, taken all in all, th
most remarkable and surprising mercantile)
event that over took place in this city.
There wns'no excuse whatovcr for It.' The
failure has created a profound sensation
here and elsowhcro. Mr. Kridor, cliief bookkeeper
of tbo firm, lias hud tho management
of tho details of the business in his
hands for some time. After tho consultation
with tho attorneys and friends of tho
firm, Mr. Krider went to Chicugo after
Capt. Markle. Ho found him without
much dllliculiy, and succeeded in persuading
him to sign an alignment, and Marklo
did not oiler any explanation for his conduct
beyond a Btntotncnt that ho folt tired
and wuntcd to have a rest. Ho had been
drinking hard and was under the influence
of liquor at the time. He made an oiler
to return any of tho money ($100,000),
although told of tho .ollect his action
would have, and as It was Ii'ib own, of
course it could not bo taken from him in
any legal way. Mr. Krider arrived homo
from Chicago on the morning train. Mr.
Lip'plncott, tho assignee, says:
" It was an action bused on pure
Of course Mr. Krider could not get
uny of tho money Mr. Markle had with
him in Chicago It was his own money,
and as there aro assets enough hero to pay
all debts, ho could not be forced to givo it
up. It wus tho breaking down of a man
who had been worried, and who did not
take the least car of himself. I do
tot think this case has a parallel in tho
commercial hiBtory of tho country. I can
not understand why man, who owns such
fine business, should not be careful and
proud of it, instead of taking such a means
as this of destroying It, Tho assets aro
certainly worth $1,000,000 and tho liabilities
will not run over fiOO.000?'
From'other sources it was learned that tho
amount' which Markle & Co. lost by the
failure of Taylor & Co., of Chicago, was
$40,000. About two woeks ago some of
Marklo's friends lalsed $30,000 for him, to
take up tho Taylor paper, and it ia not
known whether he used the money for that
purpose or' not. II has been Tory, much
worried of late by his troubles, and by tho
faet that the pulp works at Markleton did
not pay as well as was expected, and ho
drank more than usual. His departure was,
no doubt, from the disgust of a man influenced
by driak, and "the worry and
tangle into which he had allowed his
to drift. Therels a rumor that 'about
a week ago Captain MaTkjlc, who is much
ef a sporting man, lost $60,000 or more in
a game of poker, this making him desperate,'
The I'nnRttw b4 Other Schemes.
Kkw Yoke, Maroh28. The statement
that a Lockport man has received a contract
to construct a part of the Panama
Canal at a million a mile, or seven miles for
about seven million dollars, will doubtless
not only create an increased sense of direct
American interest in this enterprise, but
will seem to be a guarantee of energy in
pushing it forward. The dredges nud derricks
will MKn be forwarded to Panama for
this purpose. These evidences of life in
the Chugios project will perhaps stimulate
the managers of tho Nicaragua scheme to

London, March 4228. It is announced
that John llrown, tho personal attendant

circulated that his death was caused by
Fenian andin tho absence of definite
information as to the circumstances
immediately attending his death tho rumor
has spread rapidly. It had not been known
even that Hrown was ill, but ho was a niuu
well on iu years, extremely irritable, and
his anxiety personally on the Queen's
count was almost a mania, so that j
dents to her wero almost enough to mako '
him ill. ' 1

CoLUMiius, O., March 28. The Ingalls
bill to abolish the Board of- Public Works of

Senate yesterday, Gen. Hickenlooper,
Hon. Benjamin Epglcston and others
mudo strong speeches bofore tho committee
against its passage, characterizing the
measure as tho gigantic scheme of a few
wealthy Cinciunatians whoso solo object
was to enhance tho valuo of their own
property at tho expense of the city. It is
believed hero that, hud tho bill become a
law tho million dollars would have been
largely expended in those sections where
the projectors of the bill reside, and with
littlo if any real benefit to tho city. Its
defeat, therefore, is regarded as a blessing
