brought out the fact that the hypothecation of

practice among large dealers for a long time
past.-:.;: It is feared investigation into these
transactions will cause the downfall of other
speculating houses. There is great excite
ment in Newark to-night, and the feeling of
indignation against Dodd runs
high particularly among the smaller
class of depositors. Threats of violence have
been freely made, and ii i- said men have
been looking for him with the intention of
having summary revenge. Fie will probably

The other sensation was causd by Ferdinand
Ward's testimony before the referee commit

Grant it Ward was conducted wholly on a fic
titious basis, and implicated a number of gen
tlemen who will feel exceeeingly "small 1' in
consequence of the revelations. The

show that tile sons of Gen. Grant and other
financiers were well aware of the nature of
the business the firm was doing and knew
that it was being conducted on a basis of
prodigious swindling. The testimony given
.'o-day is not calculated to strengthen sym
pathy for these men. After detailing the
number of dubious transactions in which
hundreds of thousands and even millions
were involved lie was asked who were inter
i-.stcd with him in his swindling transactions.
He replied Capt. E. Spicer, Col. Fred.

"Can you name any of the directors of the

Ward maintained the utmost coolness while
these astounding confessions were being
ivrung from him.
W.R.Grace Is ex-mayor of the city. Tappan
i. city chamberlain, and Fisk is president of
the defunct Marine ilk, and all are men
who heretofore have borne the highest char

forced to the position where lie must make a
clean breast of the whole matter, still further
developments are expected.
[Western Associated Press.]
Ni:\v I'oitK, May 10.—The crowd bound
for Wall sired breakfasted earlier than usual
or perhaps they had headaches which made
them early risers without having much appe
tite for breakfast. At all events, Wall,
Broad, New, Williams and adjacent streets
were thronged with people an hour earlier
than usual prior to the Hurry of Wednesday.
Of course the larger number were merely
lookers on. Ever since the panic on
Wednesday people have gathered in the
vicinity of the stock exchange as though
they expected to sec the earth open and
swallow up the building or to find stocks
declining by falling out of windows.
This morning the outside crowd gathered
as it did yesterday, but afterj chattering and
staring at the building for an hour it thinned
out very perceptibly.
OS THE BOARD.
The gong sounded at 10 a. m. for the be
ginning of business and there was the usual
noisy hubub but scarcely so much as might
luive been expected at such a time. The
galleries were filled but not over crowded, a
large number using ladies. Two hours

ceedings ol the bear garden and then the
failure of 11. C. Hardy a: Sons stock brokers
was announced. They were not large
operators and except that the
announcement made a nervousness lest
something serious might happen, there was
no visible effect from the report.
A3 the day wore with no seriously unfavor
able reports from any quarter, greater confi
dence existed and when the settling hour
passed with no new failures, there was a
feeling that the period of semi-panic is over
and thai monetary affairs will gradually re
turn to their accustomed condition.

The run on the Emigrant Industrial Sav

day on the Manhattan Savings bank. The
Greenwich bank run also ended to-day.
There was a run on the German Savings
bank to-day, mostly of women. The teller
is paying gold.
There was a run on the Seamen's Savings
bank, but the depositors were paid.
The excitement at the several Brooklyn
banks ha calmed down. There was nothing
that could be called a run on any savings
bank to-day. The Atlantic State bank of
Brooklyn was open to-day, but no business
will be transacted till the bank examiners get

C. P. Hunttngton, president of the Chesa
peake & Ohio railroad, was interviewed re
garding the statements that Fisk <fc Hatch
had been embarrassed through holding the
stock of that road or the Central Pacific, lie
responded that the reports were untrue. I
know the firm has not any Central Pacific,
and I think it caneot hold any Chesapeake &
Ohio. Before the panic of '73 the linn field
most of the Chesapeake it Ohio shares, but
may have some still, possibly 1,000 shares.
President Baldwin of the Fourth National
bank, who knows the firms affairs intimate
ly, confirmed Huntingdon's statements and
said the whole cause of the firm's trouble was
the decline of governments.
AFFAIRS BECOMING SETTLED.
A visit to the various banks on the street
found matters progressing in the usual rou
tine. The Bank of Commerce has not at
any lime been in the slightest trouble. The
officers indignantly deny the rumors circu
lated, and say that inslsad of a deficiency
they had a substantial balance in their favor.
At the Metropolitan bank business is going
on as before the temporary suspension.
Examiner Scriba reported to the comp
troller of the currency that tile institution is
' doing nicely. The rest of the banks are run
ning as usual, and affairs seem to be again
SAGE SQUEALS IN' SETTLING.
Sage is not taking stocks on privileges
this morning, but is making settlements by
giving checks on differences. That is, in
stead of paying for stocks in full, he gives
holders his puts lor profits accruing on tran
sactions. This saves him the paying of a
large amount of money, but his action will
compel brokers to sell the stock which they
bought expecting he would, as has been his
custom, receive them on his puts. This is
equivalent to settling at a discount, as the
broker has to sell the stock at the market,
which is likely to be below the ling price
with Sage. This action is denounced as an
outrage. Although the stock exchange do not
recognize dealings in privileges, yet mem
bers are required to have an office where
tiny could be found during business hours.
This is not the case with Sage. Russell Sage
stated to Jay Gould that he had settled more
than three quarters of his puts and will con
tinue settling up as fast as the force can
figure up accounts.
I>ONNELL, I.AWSON" A SIMPSON.
A representative of the Associated Press
visited Donnell, Lawson & Simpson, and
found a full force of clerks unravelling the
accounts. They expect to make a statement
this afternoon. They worked till ■: o'clock
this morning but owing to the diversity of
their interests, and the fact that the business
was so widely distributed, they were not able
to make as much headway as wished.
A CALL NOT ANSWERED.
New York, May 10. Washington advices
state, that the sub-treasury here reports only
$109,000 of bonds offered for redemption
under Seerelary Folger's proposition to re
deem ill anticipation of the date of the call.
The excess in the treasury is $152,575,659,
which is $14,000,000 above the legal reserve,
therefore there is sufficient for another cal

THE DISTURBANCE OVER.
There seems to be a general impression in
Wall street circles, that all danger of a con
tinuance of the disturbances of the past few
days is over.
BEECIIER TALKS, OF COURSE.
New York, May 16. — The Rev. Henry
Ward Beecher was discovered on Wall street
this evening, and he regarded it as the
settling up of the speculators. In regard to
General Grant, he thought he had made a
great mistake in going into Wall street, but
he was not to blame, because rogues had im
posed upon him, and this was the feeling, he
said, of every man in the country. He also
referred brielly to George I. Seney's troubles.
Cyrus Wjmeld's Opinion.
Xew York, May —Cyrus W. Field
says, in the Mail and Express: Prices are
now so low that no further decline ought to
happen in any real good stock, and the
country has every reason to expect a pros
perous year. Crop prospects are excellent.

New York, May 10.—Business matters at

V 1,-trt <1 From Chicago.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
CHICAGO, May Hi.—That New York's fi
nancial troubles are not yet at an end is
plainly apparent. Every speculator on
"change governs his operations closely ac
cording to reports concerning the eastern
situation. Although a better or more favor
able time for a panic here could hardly hove
been chosen, nobody is particularly desirous
of courting anything of the kind, ami there
fore every operation is based on something
thai will aid in protecting Chicago.
The private wire owned by Messrs.
Schwartz iv. Dupce was busy this morning
asking for and transmitting the latest devel
opments on Wail street. From this source
it is learned that the morning found the
street in a cheerful mood, but that there is
an undercurrent of excitement which appears
to bode ill for somebody whose influence is
widely felt. One dispatch said it was the
general feeling that a big failure in the trade
to-day was almost sure. It said further that
a rumor was in circulation in effect that I!us
sell Sage had settled some
of his privileges at 50
cents on a dollar and that there is strong
talk of closing 'change if banks call any
more loans. It is not surmised from these
reports th at Sa^e is in imminent peril, in
deed such an idea is laughed at, and the
rumor of his sacrifices seems somewhat in
consistent when it is known that Wall street
is now receiving substantial aid from across
the water. Foreign buying this morning of
all pood securities is reported to be very
active and most favorable to a speedy and
satisfactory adjustment of the difficulties
which now harass New York speculators.
The feeling on 'change here is that while
our markets are becoming more and more
affected by what occurs on wall street there is
not much danger of any similar trouble
here. For years the banks have not been in
such good condition as at present. If a
panic had been anticipated better prepara
tions could not have been made for it. It
was remarked this morning by gentlemen
well posted on financial affairs, that it
seemed as though the banks had kept all
their money at home to meet just such an
There was some talk about Armour in
"the alley"' this morning, but the best au
thorities over their belief that affairs on Wall
street have not caused him any anxiety.
Private messages to J. L. Lester <t Co..
dealt largely witu tne affairs of Russell Sage!
One dispatch from Henry Clewes says it
looks as if Sage was selling out the stocks
lately put to him, which if true, will in
fluence for a lower market. Other advices
over Lester's wire are somewhat more ex
plicit, and say in effect that Sage is supposed
not to be taking any stocks on privileges, but
is making settlements by giving his check
for differences, thus compelling brokers to
sell stock which they have bought,"expecting
Saire would receive it on his puts.
The Newark bank failure is given also as a
principal cause of the downward movement
in stocks, and seems to have created consid
erably more excitement than would ordinar
ily be expected of such a failure. The axiom I
that flying straws slow the direction of the j
wind is, however, a way of easily accounting
for the instant and important effect of the
bursting of even the smallest financial bub
bles at such a time.
According to dispatches over Lester's wire
the principal London banks have been large
buyers of fancy stocks all day, and the gen
eral report confirms this evidence, that the
migration of gold has changed its course so
that New York instead of London is now the

mill proboblysucceeded in making a good
deal of money easily.
Other telegraphic advices say that another
large failure is anticipated to take place this
afternoon. To whom the statement points
is not Btated. At the close the feeling here
was that the heavy foreign buying of stocks
would likely put Wall street right shortly, If
no other large failures occurred.
"There is one benellt which Chicago has
derived from the failures in New York," said
a prominent business man to-day. "It will
be worth thousands of dollars to the city, the
fact that in the general depression Chicago
has not had a single failure. They have been
saying that business was loosely conducted
here, and that we rested on a superlieial
foundation. The. truth of that claim has been
tested in the last two or three days. There
are millions of money in the banks and no
one here has been materially hurt."
"The rumor is current that the Chicago
banks are sending out a large amount of
money to their country customers, indicating
distrust on the part of the latter. What have
you to say to that}" asked the Globe cor
respondent of Mr. Grannis, president of the
Union National bank.
"At this time of year there is always a
great deal of currency sent to the country in
payment for grain and this money finds its
way back to ns in ten or fifteen days," re
plied he. "The sums that are being sent are
not by any means enormous and they go to
banks, not to depositors."
Mr. Gage, vice president of the First Na
tional bank, admitted that the sums sent out
from Chicago to the country just now are
somewhat in excess of the usual amounts,
•'but," he said, "this is perfectly natural,
national and right, and the country banks
which did not ask for their outstanding bal
ances at such times as this would be acting"
like blamed fools. There is, however, no
reason to apprehend any panic, neither here
nor in the country."
Mr. Colvtn, the local agent of the United
States Express company, said in reply to the
question whether the amounts sent out by
the Chicago banks were more than usually
large, that such was not the case, at least not
more so than generally at this time of year.
Mr. F. Y. Donahue, agent of Adams ex
press, and Mr. Bloggart, agent of the Ameri
can Express company, expressed themselves
in similar terms.

number of deposits were unusually large. A

R. Stewart, superintendent of the western
division of the Bankers' ifc Merchants' coni
pany, said there was no truth in the rumor
so far as his division was concerned. The
company lost no money by the failure; that
it had projected much construction, and it
might be that they would be delayed in some

Senator Sherman's Opinions.
Philadelphia. May 16.—Senator Sherman
was interviewed here and said: We are
neither in a panic or on the versre of it, un
less my judgment is seriously at fault. The
country is not in anything like the condi
tion in which it was in '73, when the .finan
cial crash of that year came. Our financial
status is entirely different. The present
troubles are local and not seneral. Reckless
speculation, the creation of fictitious values
in stocks and the sharp competition in rail
road securities are the causes of the existing
difficulties. It is extremely easy to create
distrust in money circles when there has
been such a fluctuating market as in New
York for several months past. I look up
the present troubles as simply the result of
over-trading in securities that for a long
time has been merely the football of Wall
street. TVhile there is some depression
there is no real financial distress,
and the resources of the country are ample
and stable. It is not difficult to find a reme
dy for the present evils, if the people -would
refrain from dealing in securities or pro
ducts which they do not hold or control.
"Will the present Hurry have any serious
"I think not. It may have a very benefi
cial one. It will make the people more cau
tious in placing money in risky ventures
and turn their attention more to legitimate
business enterprises. Troubles of this kind
are simply an admonition to those who have
surplus means to remember that all success
ful fiscal operations must have a solid foun
"What bearing will these trouble have on
the presidential campaign!"
"None whatever. It is nothing more than
a temporary embarrassment at the financial
center of the country. So far no indications
of it has reached beyond the bounds of New
York city. Ido not believe it will extend
into the country. If it does not become gen
eral it will have no influence upon the politi
cal parlies. I think the worst is over. From
this time, on there will be a better feeling. I
regard the success of the Republican party of
more consequence than the ambitions of any
single man. It would be unbecoming in me
to discuss the relative merits of candidates,
but I have faith in the Republican conven
tion and that it will do the best thing for the
party. We are confronted with many diffi
culties this year, and may have anything but
au easy race fortho presidency.
Much depends upon the declarations of the
Democratic convention upon the tariff, ques
tion. lam not giving our convention any
advice as to candidates for the presidency, I
am more interested in the economic condi
tion of the country than in politics.

" One-Price" (Mil louse,
Corner Third and Robert streets,
It is one thing to quote prices and another thing
TO BACK THEM up. It is a very simple matter
to take two or three suits that are shop worn,
out of style and advertise them as 10 or 1,000
suits, and if a customer calls for one of them
make an excuse that they are all sold and try
and sell him something else. This is not the
way business is done at "THE BOSTON," St.
Paul. We live up to the letter of our advertise
ments, never advertising in price or quantity
anything we cannot show. Commencing this
morning, May 17th, we shall place on sale in
our Men's Clothing Department, the following
lots which represent more value in quality of
material, linings and substantial wear than we
have ever before offered at one time, at such
ridiculously low prices :
LOT 1250. A handsome dark pin-check, all
wool Cassimere Sack Suit $8
LOT 842, A single-breasted Frock Suit in
a hand some dark mixture. The
regular retail price East of
f suits of this grade of Cassimere
was $15. - - - $io
LOT 941. Dark check Cassimere S. B Sack
Suit, not all-wool, but the
cheapest suit in the world, for $4
LOT 1253. Medium dark brown diagonal S.
B. Sack Suit, all-wool - $8
LOT 882. A handsome Peacock blue, dark
mixture in all-wool Scotch
cheviot S. B. Frock Suits $12
LOT 846. These Suits are a cardinal mix
ture, having a brown effect.
They are all-wool, cut in a S. B.
Frock style, and are very
cheap, at - - - $12
That we consider special bargains and which for
want of space we cannot accurately describe, we
would call your attention to the following lots:
LOT 657, Men's. Frock Suits, at - $14
LOT 1249. Men's Sack Suits, at - - 15
LOT 1248. Men's Sack Suits, at - 15
LOT 1287. Men's Sack Suits, at - - 18
We know how particular young men are, re
garding the fit of their clothes, and to meet their
wants and save them the high prices they would
have to pay Merchant Tailors, we have suits of
the following well-known makes, which, in fit
and all good qualities few Merchant Tailors can
equal and none can excel: A. Sherman & Co.,
Carhart, Whetford & Co., Rogers, Peet & Co.,
and Steen, Black & Co.
Is overflowing with choice styles that please the
ladies. The Cavalry Knee is a great protection
to Boys' Trousers and you will find it on all our
Boston One-Price Qiffiu Boise,
CORNER THIRD MD ROBERT STREETS,
We make prices that sell our Goods and satisfy
thoso who buy them. Our HAT and CAP De
partment is larger than any exclusive Hat and
Cap store in St. Paul. We sell Hats not so much
for the profit they yield as for the trade it brings,
to our other departments. 1 ■; ; !
