Eight New Big Failures Reported Yester

The Banks Combine for Mutual Pro
tection, and tbe Clearing-House
Appoints a Committee.
Nkw Yokk, May 14. Thin la another
day of excitement and panic on Wall
street. Several failures have already oc-.
currtd and several other. are expected
to follow. The heavy stock operators
and bankers have been endeavoring all
morning to restore conlldence, but the
feeling seems to have taken root that a
general financial revulsion Is inevitable,
but to wbat extent business outside ol
Wall street will be affected thereby la
purely a matter of conjecture.
A panic occurred at the Stock Kx
change Immediately after the opening.
The receut astounding developments of
the failure of Graut &. Ward and the Ma
rine Uauk, aud the heavv losses of John
C. Euo, late l'resideut of the Second Na
tional liank, have had such a demoraliz
ing effect that every body ho had storks
to sell tried to gi t out as best they could,
(iould aud the bull clique tried hard to
hold the market, but could not take ad
vantages, aud to-day they let the market
take its course aud prices fell with light
ning rapidity, aud brokers lust their
beads. "Every one for himself" was the
order of the day and pandemonium
reigned at the Stock Exchange.
The tir-t failure announced from tho
rostrum was tint of Nelson, liobinson &
Co., of 18 Wull street, the second an
nouncement immediately followed of
fiitfl & Mandall, of Z New street, and then
the climax came by tbe reading of the
Mispeusion of the well-known house of
. M. liogart & Co., of Broadway aud
A reporter saw Nelson Koblnson, Mho
was so overcome with emotion that he
cou.d hardly speak. He could not tell
how much his liabilities were, but said
tin y would not exceed $l,.roii,i)rio. Hob
iiiswii is a son-in-law of Geo. 1). Seuey,
l'roxleut of the Metropolitan Bank, und
it was currently stated on the street that
Seb'-y was heavily Involved by the fail
ure. Robinson said that Seney was in
terested, but he would bave to take care
of his own affairs.
The suspension of Gaff & Randall, it is
Miid, was the result of their connection
w ith A. Dyett i Co. and of losses sus
tained on account of Jno. C. Euo. Mr.
Kandall said that at present he could not
give any statement uf theiraffairs. Every
thing is in such condition that he did not
know how he stood
Jay (iould shortly before 11 a.m. to
day came out of the Safe Deposit Com
pany with Mr. Morrison and clerk with a
large canvass bag of securities. He
looked pule aud nervous, and appeared so
much troubled that It was apparent to
every one who saw him slowly walking
dowu Broadway, his eyes looking toward
th'- pavement. His otlice was crowded
with people, who endeavored to get some
sympathy out of him for the future course
of the market, lu reply to aqiiestiouato
w hat would be the result of these heavy
failures, he slowly said in words scarcely
a'mve a whisper, "I think it will be bet
ter." In regard to the rumor that the
linn of Win. E. Couner & Co., was In
trouble, Mr. Could said "There was not
u word of truth In It."
There is much speculation as to what
llu- day will briug forth. A statement
published in the morning papers to the
ttfi-ct that l'resideut Euo of the Second
National Bank had resigned and that his
father had made good his debts to the
bank, did but little to allay the fears of
speculators, and the question of the bank
opening Its doors this morning was freely
discussed. Many contended that in con
sequence of Eno's speculations the con
cern would suspend. Others asserted
that the bank would meet all demands.
Kuiuors of impending failures were
thick, and when the Exchange opened
there was a perfect rush for admittance.
In less time than It takes to tell it tho
board room was crowded, and Immedi
ately on the announcement of tho chair
man of his readiness to proceed to busi
ness, the outpour of stock was such that
prices at once began to decline and with
such rapidity as to cause the most in
tense excitement. Brokers struggled
aud shouldered and vied with
each other lu the attempt to
market stocks, and all efforts to keep
order were fruitless. Tho Board room
was turned into a veritable bedlam. Mes
senger boys rushed to and from the Ex
change with mosages from brokers and
partuers and others not privileged to the
Moor. Business had hardly begun when
the announcement was made that a long
line of depositors had assembled In front
of the Second National Bank, aud that a
heavy run was fairly under way.
The suspension of Gofl & Kandall, stock
brokers, was announced from tho ros
trum, and then followed In quick succes
sion the announcements of tho suspen
sion of Nelsou, Robinson- & Co., 0. M.
Bogart & Co. and J. S. Williams, and then
the.old.flrm of Hatch &Foote. Then came
the news of the suspension of the Metro
politan National Bank. When the last of
these startliug announcements had been
made tho scene lu tho room was
beyond all description; tho confu
sion prevailing, together with the
noise of thousands of throats, all
yelling at once made It almost Impossible
for business to go on. Block upon block
of stock was thrown on the market re
gardless of consequences, while several
thousand shares were sold under the rule
for account of suspended firms. Every
one seemed to have lost his senses, and
one looking at the scenes In the board
room from the galleries would havo
At the lowest point of the niornlnt?,
which was touched about mid-day,
prices showed a decline ranging
from oue to eight per cent., the most
marked being on Northern Tactile
preferred, L'nlon Pacillc, Western Union,
Louisville & Nashville, Northwestern
shares, St. Paul, Missouri Pacillc and
other leading sneculativo stocks. Since
then there has been a slight rally, tho
selling movement having sensibly
diminished, und prices having more
support, but at this hour the
iffawet Is feverish and unsettled.
It. Is announced that the Metropolitan
Bank Is a debtor at tho Clearing Houjo
for aiw,0ii0, aud the Second National
Bank continues to meet all demands of
depositors in full. One cause of the sus
pension of all the firms to-day was tho
fact that nearly all banks with which
brokers hail accounts refused to certify
to more than the deposts of their cus-toim-rs.
It has just been announced that Secre
tary Eolger will make an extra call of
bonds If necessary to keep money easy.
None of the sensational reports about
other banks being involved appear to
have any foundation. A careful canvass
of the principal houses and banks at this
hour (l:3u p. m.) shows that the worst
has been passed, but a feverish and hesi
tating stock market may prevail for sev

2:30 p.m. At the Clearing-house the

stated on the best authority that the

the Metropolitan Bank promptly honored

people became panic stricken without ad

fact that the bank will open as soon as
the excitement Is allayed. This caused
an easier feeling on the street. The scene
around the building was exciting for a

The Ndws at Chicago.
Chicago, III, May 14. The wildest
excitement prevails on the Board ol
Trade, and at the LaSalle street stock
broking oHk-es over the news from New
York. The bears dumped large loads ol
w heat and corn causing a fall of half to
three-quarters of a cent, with every pros
pect ol a further decline. No effort was
made to support the local market. A
great number of selling orders were re
ceived from New York. Otlleers of the
Mert h.nits' and Union National banks,

politan Bank of New York, state that they
are in no wise affected by the latter's
suspension. They add that not for many
years have the Chicago banks been so
soiid as at present.

regarding the territory In the vicinity of
Augra Pequina, by which tho German
suzerainty of that portion of West
Africa is asserted. Naval officers
who were sent there to investigate tho
claims of Germany and England say that
the decision Is very unjust, as it was
cieariy established at tho luquiry
that this territory had been ceded
years ago by Chief David Chris

alleged bought the territory from a
chief, calling himself Joseph Frederick
some years afterwards were worthless.
Luderitz & Co. claimed the whole

price given appears to have been some
arms and ammunition. Luderitz & Co. ac
