E sensatio the district
sprang the sudden
indictment th president of
the Iroquoi company was pro-
found and farreaching. The day before
the indictment was presented to the
grand jury stocks began to tumble
without any apparent cause.
When the warrant for the arrest of
the great man had been served, and
he was admitted to bail to await his
coming trial, there was a feeble rally
in the market, but the rats quickly be
gan to desert a sinking ship. Th
president under indictment had ceased
to be a power. There was a wild
scramble of his associates who were
equally guilty to save their own skins.
The press, which at first denounced
Stuart, now boldly demauded the mer
riless prosecution of all the guilty, and
they hailed the brilliant young district
attorney as the coming man.
For six consecutive days stocks had
fallen with scarcely an hour's tem
porary rally. Every effort of the bull
operators, who had ruled the market
for the two years past, to stem the
tide was futile. Below the surface, in
the silent depths of growing suspicion
and fear, an army of sappers and min
ers under the eye of one man were
digging at the foundations of the busi
ness world—the faith of man in his
Each day there was a crash, and
each day the little financier and his
unscrupulous allies marked a new vic
tim. In the midst of the campaign
for the destruction of public credit
which Rlvens and his associates, the
Allied Bankers, were conducting with
such profound secrecy and such re
markable results, when their profits

When the president of the company
walked quietly Into Bivens' office and
made the announcement for a moment
the little dark man completely lost his
oerve. Cold beads of sweat started
from his swarthy forehead.
"There must be some mistake."
"There's no mistake. It's a blow be
low the belt, but it's a knockout for
the moment. They know we are sol
vent, two doHars for one. But they
know we have $90,000,000 on deposit,
and we have some big enemies. They
know that the group we have support
ed have smashed this market, and
they've set out to fight the devil with
fire. They're determined to force a
showdown and see how much real
money Is behind us. We can pull
through if we stand together."
Bivens sprang to his feet, exclaiming
"Until hell freezes over!"
The banker smiled feebly for the
first time In a week.
"Then it's all right, Mr. Bivens.
We'll pull through. They'll start a
run on us tomorrow. Five millions in
cash will meet it, and we'll win bands
down. W have powerful friends.
Our only sin Is our association with
your group. We must have that five
millions in the safe before the doors

Harriet had scarcely reached her
room when Adams, the cashier of one
of the allied banks, who owed the
doctor for three months' rent, entered
the library with quick, nervous trend.
