General Grant, Though a Heavy Loser'
Safe From Anything Like
Nkw York, May 7. The failures ol
yesterday are the sole topic of conversa
tion on the street to-day. Lon before
the Stock Exchange opened groups of
speculators were gathered around Its en
trance, despite the heavy rain, excitedly
discussing the situation aud indulging
In speculation as to what the day would
bring forth. Many expressed tho belief
that the worst was over, and that no
further failures would occur. Some even
went so far as to assert that before many
days the Marine Hank would resume.
This was scoffed at by the more conserva
tive speculators, who asserted that the
only time the bank would open its doors
would be to allow the entrance of a re
ceiver. However this may be, the Insti
tution remains closed ami there Is uotthi;
slightest indication that business will be
THE AMOUNT INVOLVED
In the failure of the Marine Bank is vari
ously estimated at from one to live mil
lions. It was the depository for a larue
number of private bankers; held about
one million in New York city funds; held
all the surplus revenue of Long Island
City; is supposed to hav had a large de
posit from the Erie K&ilway, and besides
had a large line of regular customers on
the street and throughout the country,
much larger than its capital, which was
ouly $100,000, warranted.
Its President, James 1). Fish, Is one of
the oldest financiers in New York, and
was a bank president here when there
were only seven others. He was looked
upon as a shrewd, conservative uiau, and
his judgment was always considered
sound Iu money matters. Although not
one of the luminaries, he was one of the
strone men of Wall street, and perhaps
one of the best known. He originated
several Ideas which have of late years
broadened and developed the money
market; was one of the founders of the
Produce Exchange; and in various ca
pacities proved himself to be a most
careful aud judicious manager.
During President Graut's administra
tion Mr. Fish attended to much of his
financial business, and a strong friend
ship sprang up between the two. Young
U. S. Grant, the President's son, having
shown great business talent, it was partly
through the instrumentality of Mr. Fih
that he was put on the street. He made
a number of fortunate investments, and
was so careful and so prosperous in a
small way that upon his retirement from
the Presidency General Grant placed
NEAKLY ALL HIS MONEY
Ht the disposal of his son. It may be re
membered that on the very day and al
most lu the very hour that General Grant
was notitled of his defeat at Chicago, a
telegram brought him the intelligence that
"the boy" had made $100,000 lor him.
When the General read his Chicago dis
patch he turned In his chair ami said:
"Well, a man can't have everything his
own way, the boy has made a good stroke
U. S. Junior and Ired ward formed a
partnership about four years ago, and
about two years later the General and
Mr. Fish became special partners in the
concern, each paying in $100,000. Young
Grant had a small fortune of his own,
and his marriage to Senator Chaffee's
daughter Is supposed to have given him
$400,000 more. It is not kuown what
capital Fred Ward possessed, but he was
a shrewd young broker, and for a long
time the firm made money "hand-over-
(1st." They dealt In risks which
some of the larger houses wouldn't
touch, such as mining stock and the
smaller class of corporation bonds. They
also advauced money on a high rate of
iuterest to Government contractors, tak
ing their chances on the contracts being
properly filled, and on the Government
making payment for work unfinished.
When they won on this paper they coined
mouev, but when they lost, thev lost ev
erything. How far the crash will
INVOI.VK GENERAL GRANT
Is not yet known, but an Independence is
secured to him for life, there being $250,
000 of trust funds deposited to his credit
with Drexel, Morgan &. Co., the interest
on which he is emitted to. This is the
fund raised for him by the wealthy men
of New York a few years ago. The fail
ure cannot affect it. His private fortune,
however, will probably be eaten up In his
desire to save his credit and the credit of
his sons. Fred. D. Grant, it will be re
membered, resigned his Colonelcy in the
army about three years ago to take a po
sition iu a Southern railroad. He finally
became connected also with Grant &
Ward, but the extent of his interest is not
New Y'ork, May 7. Cashier Vail of
tho Garfield Bank says the Marine Bank
owed his bank $1,000, and that tho Gar

Long Island City Is threatened with
bankruptcy, because the taxes for the
year were tleposited lu the Marine Bank.
General Grant told General Collis Inst
night ho didn't know exactly how he
stood, but If he had gone dowu town
early in the day tho failure of Grant &
Ward would never havo occurred. It Is
generally believed that the General lost
$100,000, and his son what ho had; but
the General's presented fund of $250,000
Mr. Camp, of tho Clearing House, said
to believed tho Marino Bank would bo
wound up. The failure was maiuly duo
to overdrafts by Grant & Ward. No other
banks are in troublo. Several examined
yesterday, about the standing of which
there had been adverse rumors. From
what is learned this morning tho collapse
of Grant & Ward was mainly owing to the
drop In various tlinisy fancy stocks during
tho past year, since which there has
been some rchypothecation of securities
similar to the Bonner case a few years
ago, It is charged that a Brooklyn con

Washington, D. C, May 7. There

General Slocum said ho was glad he

The Cause of Charley Ford's Suicide
Crazy for Morphine.
Richmond, Mo., May 7. Bob Ford has
arrived here from Kansas City to attend
the fuueral of his brother Charley, but Is
not Inclined to talk much about the causes
leading to his brother's suicide. He de

takes Charley's death very hard, and on
meeting the family broke down complete
ly. The funeral Is to take place at two
this afternoon to the cemetery near the
Ford homestead. The family seem to
think that Charley's act was not premed

father to come from town with the mor
phine he found the pain unendurable, aud
knowing that he would probably not live
long, suddenly decided on suicide to es
cape his afflictions.

of E. B. Wheeler for the murder of Print
Matthews in Copiah County at the No

Memtiiis, Tknn., May 7. A fatal affair
occurred yesterday at Marion, Crittendeu
County, this State, between W. U.

Hardin of slandering him. The two

Murray this morning. The remains of
