The Stock Gambling Panic—lts
Causes and Results.
Ward's Operations on the Basis of Grant's
Name and Fish's Secrets.
Mr. AValter Phelps' Great Service to the
New York Banker.
[Special Correspondence St. Paul Globe.]
New York, May 22.—More news is sup
pressed in New York than is published. This
maj be regarded as an exaggeration, but it is
not untruth. Much that occurs does not see
the light; much more does not deserve to; a
great deal more cannot be told. The recent
panic in Wall street illustrates this anew.
The credit of many other houses would have
Buffered had the whole that was known to
Borne papers been printed; hundreds of in
cidents characteristic of prominent men,
have escaped telliug, because of the charity
of some, and lack of space or enterprise of
other papers; and the secrets of the chief
and most dishonorable of the recent failures
are really too vile to tell, and can only be
hinted at. •
I suggested last week that the Fisk &
Ward failure would prove to be the most dis
graceful in American annals. It now proves
to be the most grotesque as far as Grant
& Ward are concerned, and the most dis
gusting as relating to James D. Fish and
the Marine bank. The "young Na
poleon of finance," aa Ferdinand
Ward is facetiously called, proves on the
witness stand a combination of Jim Fisk and
Bill Tweed. "With the unblushing air of the
(Jaseon Fisk he unblushingly tells of "ring"
operations more reckless, daring and exten
sive than Free-booter Tweed ever dreamed of
perpetrating. Tweed robbed a city full of
fools of $0,000,000; this man appears to have
talked out of a few confiding friends $14,
--000,000. He appears to have taken the en
tire Grant family and connections into part
nership, under conditions which required
them to admit practically "we are foola finan
cially; you know everything; you attend to
the business and we will accept your guaran
tee of $3,000 a month profits for each of us."
There was no other consideration apparent
in the articles or the acts of this remarkable
copartnership. The Grants did nothing, said
nothing, and drew their $3,000 a month with
regularity and without suspicion or con
science. The big profits shown in the books
they never heard of; the books were kept to
catch new dupes. The "Ward & Fish partner
ship looks discreditable to all parties concern
ed. Ward appears to have come into posses
sion of some of Fish's" secrets, the old gen
tleman was a gallant, and his down town
bank apartments and his mystic flats up town
were the scenes of occasional orgies of
which Ward apparently knew. He forced old
man Fish to aid him in his reckless schemes
for the plunder of friends. He could never
have accomplished what he has done with
Grant's name alone; he had to have a cap
italist, and that capitalist in a bank of credit,
to draw on occasionally to accomplish so
bold a fraud. Fish was the man who served
his purpose, and he used him freely.
This has been a panic of the millionaires
and stock gamblers; not, like that of 1873,
a panic of merchants. Then stocks were
high and money tight; now stocks are low
and money cheap. Then the substantial
business merchants having no inflated stocks
as collateral found difficulty in borrowing
money, and suffered; now the gamblers in
stocks find it impossible to raise money,
though cheap and plenty, on unsubstantial
stocks. Another thing has tended to create
this panic—the millionaire bankers have lost
their nerve. Over-certification had been
going on so long that the sudden stoppinsr
of it under this state ot nervousness has
swamped those brokers who have been most
favored. They are suddenly required to do
business on a cash basis. Hence these tears
in Wall street.
Of the five banks which failed all had some
suspicious or improper connection with Wall
street speculative firms. The Marine bank
was ruined by Grant & Ward, of which Fish,
its president, was a special partner. The
Metropolitan bank, George I. Seney, presi
dent, was embarrassed by Kelson, Robinson
& Co., composed of two sons and one son
in-law of Seney. The Atlantic bank of
Brooklyn was a mere offshoot of the Metro
politan and was practically owned and ac
tually directed by Seney. The president of
the Second National bank, John C. Eno, was
the principal customer of half a dozen houses
in the street. The Xewark Savings institu
tion was carried down by Fisk <fc Hatch,who
had substituted for its special deposit of $2,
--000,000 government bonds, fluctuating rail
way and other securities on which the bank
could not readily realize. It was the "ring"
system of spoliation introduced into Wall
street; nothing else.
George I. Seney, president of the Metro
politan bank, would have com
manded sympathy had it net
been for his connection with the
George I. Seney.
stock gambling house of Nefson, Robinson
& Co. It was a firm composed of his own
relatives and was favored by the Metropolitan
bank beyond any other house. The favor
itism shown his relatives deprived Seney of
any sympathy and has lost him the presiden
cy of the bank. Seney has been reputed a
millionaire several times over; he has given
several small fortunes to public charities and
educational institutions. He was building a
hospital to cost several hundred thousand,
but his failure leaves it unfinished. He led
a domestic sort of life, and outside of his bank
ing and stock financiering led a mild Chris
tian sort of existence. But this has been*a!
bad panic for Christian financiers like Hatch,
Seucy, and Eno and Todd. I must not omit
to "name Ward, who sat under the adminis
tration of Dr. Storrs.
The true story of the Eno defalcation and
the salvation of the Second National bank
will probably never be told. But while lam
under obligations not to tell the astounding
total of young John C. Eno's squandurings I
may say that the three and a half millions
less, which report credits his father with !
making good to the bank is less by a sum it I
takes seven figures to express than the
amount the young president
made way with. ne was
young but not inexperienced in business; he
was of a quiet and domestic disposition; so
cially popular: with religious associations
and pietended geligious tendencies; a re
former in politics; and there was everything
about him except his youth to command the
confidence generally roposcd in him.
His was a peculiar institution. A
bank for deposit for fashionable
women with unlimited pin mouoy; for the
numerous theatrical managers and actors of
the vicinage for the scores of large dry goods
houses and jewelry stores in the neighbor
hood; for the up-town charities like the
Bellevue Training school for nurses; for the
civil service reforms association;
for the big up-town hotels, grocers like Park
& Tilford and furniture men like Herter &
Co., who built the Yanderbilt mansion; and
above all for the multitude of people, well-to
do but still in moderate circumstances, liv
ing on Murray hill the centre of wealth and
fashion, who deposited each month to their
wive's credit funds for current household ex
penses. No bank in this city, possibly none
in the world, ever had such a multitude of
lady depositors, or whose failure could have
brought misery so directly and immediately
to many fire-sides unaccustomed to look
upon it. There were also in the numerous
hotels and restaurants near by a speculative
business by telegraph and telephone. The
"Twenty Third street gang," composed
of 'William R. Travers, Charles J. Osborne,
Addison Commack Spencer and other prom
inent bears" had quarters on the next
block; whether or not contact with the opera
tors indicated led to his first
venture and finally to his misuse of the
bank funds, I cannot say, but Eno lived un
doubtedly in the midst of temptation. Nat
urally such a young man with such a bank
behind him would be a victim worthy the ef
forts of stock gamblers. At any rate they
finally got him. He failed ignominiously,
and has already been 6wept violently aside
and out of sight. It is now remembered of
him only this, that he assumed several vir
tues which he did not possess, and had one
which will be remembered to his credit? he
was domestic and devoted to his fa mil}-. His
money was not squandered like that of Fisk
and Ward, in the purchase of houses and
jewelry for account of whom they cannot now
remember. Eno's infatuation was purely
that of the speculator; his frenzy that of the
gambler who falls that there is no greater
satisfaction in life than that of losing except
The facts of how Amos R. Eno came to
make good his son's great losses reads like
a romance stranger than any I know. The
son confessed on Sunday, May 11. The
John C. Eno,
father was first astonished; then mortified;
then enraged, and finally is almost heart
broken at the revelation of the simultaneous
loss of his boy, his family name and his mil
lions. He did not know what to do for
twenty-four hours but calming down turned
for support where he had often sought it be
fore and strangely enough to one much
youger than himself. Years ago A. R. Eno
had been a partner of and made his many
million, with, the father of Congressman
William Walter Phelps, of New Jersey; and
since his partner's death he has been accus
tomed to look to the son in times of difficulty,
as he once looked to the father. He tele
graphed to Phelps at Washington Monday
and the latter reached him on Tuesday morn
ing, when he heard for the first time the
astounding story with pain and grief almost
as great as that of the father. Mr. Phelps
was also stockholder and director of the
bank, having been put in at his father's
death, merely to avoid taking a stranger
into the concern, but with the understand
ing of all hands that his frequent absence
from the country, political duties, etc.,
would make it impossible for him to give
any personal attention to the bank's affairs.
Mr. Eno, Sr., while impatiently awaiting Mr.
Phelps' arrival had considered his legal re
sponsibility as director, and named it
to Phelps in conversation. Mr.
Phelps without hesitation declared that
the entire moral responsibility of all the di
rectors must be a; once Rssumed, and that
chief of all it was due to Mr. Eno's name
and reputation, the credit of the bank, the !
good of the general public and of all the I
other banks of the city, and of the hundreds |
of depositors whose money was attracted to
the bank by his name, that Mr. Euo should
make good every dollar of his son's losses.
The difference in dollars between the legal
responsibility which the several directors had
calculated and the moral obligations which
Mr. Phelps now presented in his strongest
language, was several millions. Mr. Eno's
own legal responsibility could not at the ut
most have exceeded $100,000, but he . was
under Mr. Phelps'view of the situation, called
on for nearly four millions! Naturally there
was a struggle. It would have been strange
if there had not been a long and bitter con
tention between conscience and cupidity.
Mr. Eno has the general reputation of being
a "close man." Men who accumulate grein

fortunes usually make that reputation at the
same time. They do become close and '
cautious, and loam to love the wealth which
they find to be their power, which
represents their lives and emphasizes their
success. But Mr. Eno has also the repu
tation of having made every dollar he
posssesses honorably; of being absolutely up
right in the strictest sense of commercial
honor; with an old fashioned merchant's idea
of integrit}', whose word was as good and
binding as his bond. It was this sort of stem
character that youug Phelps had to iufluence
in this grave matter. He spent all day Tues
day with him, appealing to him by every con
sideration of justice, moral obligation, fam
ily pride and the wishes of all the other mem
William Walter Fhelps,
berg of the family. It was perfectly true, as
Mr. Eno said, that he was only one of the
stockholders and one of the directors having
no actual responsibilities different from the
others. But it was represented to him that the
bank enjoyed its great credit, not because of
its president but because of its president's
father; and that while no legal obligation at
tached to this yet there was a certain moral
responsibility to the depositors,many of them
people in moderate circumstances, to whom
the loss would cause for a time an untold
amount of misery. Mr. Eno recognized this
and declared that he was perfectly willing
after the bank had failed to provide for all
the small depositors and the charities
out of his own private means. This would
have involved an outlay of perhaps three
quarters of a million, or from that to a mill
,ion and a half. The family had been ap
pealing to him to do more. Amos F. Eno,
his eldest son, who has generally been re
garded as an extremely close business man,
was the first to insist with his father that
their obligation went further and that he
would not be content to inherit money which
came to him through their unwillingness
now to make good , every deficiency. To
the everlasting honor of the family it should
be remembered that every member of it in
cluding even the daughter, whose private
funds had been swept away in the defalca
tion, took the same ground and made the
same appeal. The attitude of the stern old
father, however, was equally characteristic,
lie had no right, he said, to rob his
honest children in order that one who
had been dishonest should be screened.
Then he was asked to think of the family
name, but his answer was equally character
istic. "The family name is all right, my
name is all right; I earned my money hon- ■
estly, every dollar of it, and have always dis
charged every obligation. That a son of mine
should depart from my teachings will not af
fect my name or thatof my honest children."
Throughout the whole day and until midnight
the discussion and,appeal went on, Phelps '
being put forward at every turn to reinforce |
the arguments of the family. At last he got
a call for a meeting of the directors at the :
residence of Isaac N. Phelps, an old man and
an invalid, now far past seventy, where it
was supposed they could be entirely private, j
Here Mr. Eno took the ground that, if all the
obligations of the bank were to be provided
for, the other directors ahould share their just
responsibility with him. The bank had a
capital of §300,000, which had originally been
subscribed by ten men, in shares of 830,000
each. Its surplus was double the capital', so
that the actual loss represented to each di
rector by the defalcation was his stock plus j
his surplus, that is to say, in the case of most '
of them, §30,000 stock, plus $60,000 surplus. I
Mr. Phelps was the first to agree to take up
his share of this capital and surplus, and
to deliver it in notes of suitable
sizes at the bank before ten o'clock next '
morning. Isaac W. Phelps agreed to do the
same, and ultimately and after great exer
tion most of the other directors assented
som eof them, however, only giving their
notes and refusing to make any exertions to
put in money for immediate necessities.
The capital and surplus of the bank being
actually lost, this of course, was not a gift,
since they would have had to do the same
anyway if the bank were to go on even after ■
winding up its affairs now; and they had
their stock and surplus to show for it. "When
the $900,000 was secured in this way, there
was still left a deficiency of nearly $3,000,
--000 which seemed to Mr. Eno more than he
ought to assume, or than he had the right to
take from what, in a very few years, must 1
become the property of his honest children.
Phelps thereupon offered to give $200,000 of
this amount provided one or two of his fel
low directors would give equal sums. In ,
some fashion or other the matter was finally
brought to a head; the directors shook hands ]
promising to meet each other at the bank the -
next morning with their respective quotas of
$90,000 in currency, and Mr. Eno agreed to
make good all deficiency. It was after mid- .
night on a stormy night when they parted.
The next morning atthe bank the old man
stood up like an old Roman, not shielding or
pretending to shield his criminal son, who
had done far more harm already to him in
dividually than to anybody else, but protect
ing every person who had placed faith in
the bank. "A million to-day," he said,"and
a million a day for a fortnight, if it is neces
sary." Secretary Folger crowded through
the throng to congratulate him, and all were
breathing easier when a dispatch came from
the clearing house. The defaulting president
only a few hours before had made his last
dig at the bank, his last stab at his father by
signing his name as president in the last
hour before his forced resignation.to a check j
presented at the clearing house for $90,000.
Here was a new source of peril which had not
been apprehended. It had been supposed
that, after his confession of Sunday, there
was no more to be feared from him. The
old man stung and bewildered by this last
thrust from his son whom he had trusted,
fairly broke down. "There is no telling,"
he said, "how much more there may be. It
is useless for us to go on in the dark." In
the directors' room there was silence for a
moment or two broken at last
by Bank Examiner Scriba, who said, "Well
then I must order the shutters pulled down."
At this moment the run was at its height.
Two long lines of depositors stretched from
the paying-tellers' windows to and across the
pavement, and every cheque was being
cashed on presentation with the utmost
rapidity trained tellers could attain. Hesi
tating for an instant to give the order, the
bank examiner turned again to Mr. Phelps,
"Can you do nothingi It isn't fair to ask
you to go any further, but perhaps you can
suggest something." Phelps turned to the
venerable partner of his dead father and
said, "Come, Mr. Eno, let's make one more
effortj'll take the half of this risk with you."
In a moment it was reduced to writing,
Phelps and Eno signed their names to it,
and the danger was past. The bank re
mained open till 6 o'clock, paying every
depositor who came, and the run was over.
Mr. Eno was probably worth at a low es
timate, $16,000,000, although he has been
currently rated at about $20,000,000: con
sidering his age, the nature of his life, and
the treacherous nature of the stab thus dealt
him from his family circle, there can be no
one to doubt his splendid conduct. It was
only natural that, groping in the dark as to
the extent of the real danger, he should hesi
tate and somewhat slowly make his way to
the tremendous sacrifice that his sense of
honor finally compelled. It is understood
now that the worst is known, that the direc
tors and stockholders merely make good their
impaired capital and surplus, having the re
stored bank to show for it, and that Mr. Eno
resumes all other responsibilities, with noth
ing to show for it. He thus takes from what
must in the course of nature in a few years,
go to the rest of his children, more than one
fourth of his entire property, the accumula
tion of seventy years, in order, solely, that
no one who deposited in the son's bank be
cause of the father's life-long reputation for
integrity, can ever say that he lost by it. His
name is deservedly in everybody's mouth,
and praise for him is all that is heard. No
body thinks now of calling him mean or
As for William Walter Phelps and his part
in this important transaction, he tried at
first to keep it as much as possible out of the
papers, and has until now succeeded. The
only praise I have heard of as being awarded
to Phelps was in a letter of John A. Stewart,
president of the United States Trust com
pany: "If Walter Phelps lives to be a hun
dred years old he will never again have the
opportunity of doing so big a service to this
