Dr. Walcot, the celebrated "Peter

bis contomiioraries of the manner in
which, he once tricked hit publisher.
The larfir, wishing to buy the copyright
of his works, offered liirn a life annuity
of two hundred pounds sterling. The
doctor, learning that the publisher was
very anxious to purchase, demanded
three hundred pounds. In reply the
latter appointed a day on which he
would rail on the doctor and talk the
matter over. At the day assigned the
doctor received hitn in his dressing
gown, even to the night cap, and hav

however, refused to give more than 200,
till suddenly the doctor broke out into a
noltrot fit of couching, which produced
an offer of This the doctor
peremptorily refused, and waa seized al
most instantly with another even more
frightful and longer protracted attack

publisher, thinkiug it impossible that

offer and closed with him at 300. The

tba Rebellion Brln Thanks from Pres
New York. Xor. 17. Much excitement
waa eau-ei in this city Saturday by tba
report that the great English banking
firm of Baring Bros, was in trouble. This
firm la the financial agent in England and
Europe of the United States and doea an
enormous business. Tbe cause of the
firm'a embarrassment waa a drop In Ar
gentine Republic securities, ot which It
holds a vaat quantity. Tbe failure of the
firm would entail widespread financial
ruin, and aa aoon aa it waa known that it
waa In difficulties the Bank of England
and other strong Institutions went to the
rescue and made arrangements to help
tbe firm out of trouble. -
A Bnr'l of Money Involved.
The condition ot the firm is briefly
stated to be as follows: Its total liabili
ties are estimated at 15,0i"0 ), or about
t75.OU0.O00. while the assets of the firm at
their present depreciated va I ne, show a
surplus of 4,0X1,0111, or ,OA0iO. The
guarantee syndicate baa sub-cribed a
fund of 11,000.000, or Vi5.0U0.uin The
Bank of England subscribed 7.00,OUO
and private bankers 4.000.000 Baring
Bros, will be furnished from time to
time with whatever money It needs to
meet maturing obligations, drafts, and
other demands for which it has become
responsible, and it will turn over its as
sets as security for the loans.
Connection with Inrle Sam.
The tarings hare been financial agents
of onr Koveroment in Europe nearly tbe
whole lime since 179S. In the year 1S43
Alexander Baring, the then bead of the
house, negotiated the treaty between the
United States and Canada and was made
Lord Asbbnrton for bis distinguished
Bt-rvices. The acquaintances Lord Asb
bnrton made vi-r here inured to the
credit f his banking house, and in lMfi
Rotiert J. Walker, the secretary of tbe
treasury, svrntto England aud negotiated
through the Hsrinirs the first loan of the
Mexican war, tl5.uio.u
Xhanked by lreidt l.lncotu.
During the civil war the Unrings con
ducted the enormous f reign business of
the United S'ai and in such a svisfac
tory manner that I're-ident Lincoln wrote
the house a personal letter ot thanks,
which is now framed and lianas in the
private office of the firm In when
lien. Grant became president, he was per
suaded to have I he American foreign ac
count deposited with Jay Cook. MrCnl
longh & Co., which arrangement contin
ued until 1573. when, upon the failure of
that bouse, tbe scconnt was again trans
ferred to tbe Barings, where it has since
remained. Few people have any idea of
the amount of money tbe United States
must keep in Europe On Nov. 1 our ac
count amounted to 5:(U.0UO. or opwar.l of
2,500,0'". This is to pay diplomats, con
suls and to draw upon fur expenses of the
No End tf Asststnnee.
lxiSDON, Xov. 17 The Scotch hanks
had a meeting tn day for the purpose of
adding to the Barings' guarantee fund.
The whole banking world has shown
alacrity in subscribing and when all the
provincial and other subscript ions have ar
rived tbe total iit be such a snm as will
make the whole incident a brilliant tri
umph for the organizers of the fund. The
firm's books have been before the Bank of
England's management for a week.
Treferred to Speak In Time.
Besides the 4 000,0 JO surplus, the part
ners' estates represent Immense p.rtential
resources, but although the firm could
have met its liabilities for at least an
other month it waa decided to disclose its
position in order to avert the risk of a
general break donn of credit, plunging
the whole country into trouble.

NlW Iobk. Nov. 17. Miss Mary Hen-"
neseey. the pretty 19-year-old daughter of
John Hennessey, of 63 Degraw street,
Brooklyn, appeared Friday morning In
the Butler street police court to complain
against John Reilly, to whom she was to
have been married last Monday night.
Tears came to her eyes as she told ber
story to Justice Tighe. All tha hrrange
menta, abe said, for her marriage had
been completed by Nov. 8 and on that
date her fatbnr gave her IW to assist in
furnishing the flat which the young peo
ple were to occupy when they got back
from their wedding tour.
Blocked His First Little Oame,
Her lover called to see her on Sunday,
Nov. 9, and when she told him of tbe
present she had received from her father,
be requested her to give him the money,
promising to return it on their wedding
night. Tbe girl, however, told him that
she thought the money was just as safe in
her custody, and very poHtel y but firmly
refused his request. Reilly took his de
parture, apparently in no way hurt by
the girl's actions.
But He .Straightway Coneoeted Another.
Keilly appeared at the house on Monday
morning, and informed her that he had
changed bis plans, and wanted her to go
with him forthwith to a priest and have
the marriage oeremony performed with
out any fuss. The girl reluctantly con
sented. Tbey had not got more than a
few blocks from the house when Keilly
proposed that they take a trip to R.icka
way before getting married, and to this
she also agreed. Wben we got to Kocka
way," Miss Heunwsey contiuued, "he took
me to a lonely part ot tbe beach, and
seizing me by the throat threw me down.
He then tore ojen the bosom of my drss,
and taking $H. of the 1150 ran off. tear
me to find the way home as best I could."
Where He Played the Fool.
In tbe evening when the girl reached
her home she was shocked to find this
note awaiting her:
"You are respectfally invited to attend
the wedding of Mr. John Keilly and Miss
Delia Lee, to he held at their residence,
671 Hicks street, Sunday evening. Nor. 30,
ISO. Yonr truly, John Kkillv."
Even with this exhibition of perti.ty on
the part of ber lover the would have pre
ferred to allow him to go unpunished if
she had consulted her own feelings, bat
her parents insisted on her seeking legal
redress. Keiily was later arrested and
locked tip. the police finding him with his
ROBBED BY THE JUNIOR MEMBER.
A New York Scoaudrel Vses His Firm's
Money In Private lie sis.
New York. Nov. 17 It has just hen
learned that the brokerage firm of Mills,
Kobeson & Smith, at ! Broadway, have
been ruined on account of the defalcation
of $350,000 by Albert H. Smith, the junior
member of the firm. The peculations
had continued for a period of six years,
and were discovered by sheer accident on
Saturday by William A. Waisoa. the
cashier of tbe firm. Smith confessed his
guilt to his partners and turned over to
the firm (30,003 in cash and real est.ite,
which he said was every dollar he pos
sessed in the world.
His Method of Rascality.
In bis confession he said that about six
years ago he became embarrassed owing
to bad speculations on his own account.
He needed money to make good his losses,
and believini; that he could return it
again he started in on his criminal car.-er.
His mode of operation was to buy either
seven, eight or nine shares of preferred
stock, and then raise the figures to seventy
eighty. or ninety on tbe certificate by
simply placing a cipher after the figure,
and adding the letter "y to the word eight,
and the letters ty" afier seven and nine.
Having a private account wi'b the firm he
was enabled in this way to draw ont V
per cent, of the face or apparent valne
of the stocks.
They Are Frequently of This Kl nd.
Smith, who is about 45 rears of age, is
well known on tbe street. He bore a good
reputation, belonged to many of Brook
lyu's fashionable clubs and was also a
member of the late Henry Ward Beech -er's
church. Messrs. Mills and Robeson
say tbe defalcation will reach (350,000,
and that they are tbe principal losers.
How it was that tbe forgeries were not
discovered long ago ia a surprise to all
concerned. The firm late on Saturday as
signed, and William A Watson was ap
pointed assignee. Smith has been ar
rested. PACKERS GO TO THE WALL.
Assignment nt Kansas City of Three
Firms in Tbnt Line.
Bostov, Nov. 17. The Kansas City
Packing and Chase Refrigerator com
pany, the Kansas City Packing company,
and the Cold Blast Transports! ion com
pany have made assignments for the heu
efit of their creditors to George F. Parker,
of Boston, who is a director in the first
named concern. Tbe Kansas City Pack
ing and Chase Refrigerator company bad
practically absorbed the two others, but
separate organizations were keot. The
capital stock of the Kansas City Packing
and Chase Refrigerator company is Fi,
000,000, and the business is in cattle and
Tbe Creditors Probably Safe.
The assignee st-ated that the stringency
of the money market was the chief cause
of the assignments. He also said that the
combiued liabilities of the companies
wonld not exceed (750.003. and the nom
inal assets would foot up tl,500,00J. The
creditors would receive iu time payment
in full. Some of the wealthiest stock
holders of the company would come to the
rescue, and tbe business would probably
be carried on under his assigneeship.

WAsniscTo CITT, Nov. 17. In Lon
don county, Va., not very far from Wash
ington City, there is a girl who will tome
day contract an alliance with a king. Her
dresses on thai occasion will not be par
ticularly splendid, and for that reason,
perhaps, the event has not attracted the
attention that such marriages uaual'y do.
Tbe truth is that tbe girl la a negreas and
the man she will marry ia king of a tribe
in Africa. 8 he hi at present being trained
for her future position in African court
circles and Is an luniate of tbe family ot
Kev. John S. Cheater, a clergyman who
several yearn ago waa a missionary to the
west coast of Africa.
They Have One Virtuo, Anyhow.
His wife became very fond of a youug
African girl while he was there and asked
permission that she return with them
when they left the dark continent. Her
father, thinking the missionary was Jok
ing, gave bis consent, but wheu the time
Mine for parting want -d to be released
from his promise. Chester still persisted
in his request, and finally, as no member
af the tribe is allowed under paiu of death
lo break a promise, had to allow his
laughter to depart. Tiie child was given
the English name of Nellie Instead of tbe
unprononnoeable cognomen which she at
first powesed. and although Chester al
ready bad children of his own she was
treated as a member of the family.
A a Arcnanrktlahed Flnnen.
Since Nellie bas been in the Coiled
States she bas made great progress in
her education, and now at the age of 15
la a model of scholarship and politeness.
She can speak French aud Kuglihh well
and combines te winning ways of an
American girl with the politeness of a
Parisian. Nellie looks much older than
she really is and wonld be eligible to
marriage if she were with her own tribe.
Since they came here tbe Chestrrs have
kept up a correspondence with the par
ents of the girl, who have been delighted
with the progress which they have learned
that she is making under ber instructors.
Ke I'olyfamy for Hrr.
About a mouth a-.ro they rec-ived a let
ter from her father asking that she be re
turned to Africa as the king wished to
elaim bis bride. Tbe tribe ot which abe
Is a member is a polygamous one, and
Chester rel used to do this unless tbe girl
was lo be the king's only queen. The
king, who is charmed with the stories
about Nellie, has promised to do as asked,
sod it is likely that within a few months
Nellie will be sent back to mount a throne
in her native land.
No Common Sambo Seest Apply.
She has had several offers of marriage
from the negroes living near ber home,
but she has refuse,! them all and the
king wilt find ber heart-wbole aud fancy

Acalnst O'Shea's Charge.
Losdon, Nov. 17. The divorce cane in
which Charles Stewart Parnell is co-re-ipondetit
war begun Saturday before Jus
tice Butts and a jury. It Is needless to
say that the court room waa crowed, bnt
.In the interest of the truth of history it la
necessary to mentiou tbe fact that the
distinguished co-respondent was not in
the crowd, either inside the t. .-r ont
ide. I ax V wood and Pritcbard appeared
for Mrs. O'Shea, bnt a-nouueed at the
tart that they would make no defence.
These facts created the sensation of the
The rrrlng Wife's Plea.
A peculiarity of tbe case is that in her
acswef to the complaint ot ber husband
Mrs. O'Shea said practically that she bad
not been gnilty of adultery, but if she bad
Capt. O'Shea had connived at tbe time,
and it was this allegation that O'Sbea's
counsel set out to disprove. Sir Kdward
Clark. Q. C , made the opening statement
for O'Sbea and said that he would prove
that Mrs. O'Shea and Parnell "pulled the
wool over O'Sliea's eyes," as it were, to
admiration. When the captain heard
rumors of the goings on of bis wife and
Parnell in bis absence from home he
wrote to both Purnell and Mrs. O'Sbea,
and tbey both assured him that tbe ru
mors were groundless.
How They Mauaced tao Llnlson.
It seems that in carrying on this busi
ness the Irish leader's -visits to Mrs.
O'Shea and her visits to him wrre much
more numerous that Capt. O'Shea bad
any idea of. Tho-e w hich took place at
O'Skea'a borne he heard of shortly after
ward, and were tbe ones he first protested
against. Ou one occasion Mrs. O'Sbea
explained them as political visits. But
at different nnd frequent times during tbe
period from lvl to lsjthetwo met at
houses other than O'Sbea's borne under as
sumed name. Parnell went by the name
of Charles Stewart. Mr. Smith, and
Clement Preston, while Mrs. O'Sbea
lived with him and his sister. On one oc
casion wben Parnell was with Mrs. O'Sbea
at her own home CapL O'Sbea came
home and Parnell stepped ont at tbe back
wben the betrayed husband came in at
tbe front door. Shortly afterward Par
nell made his appearance at the front
door, as thongb he had just arrived, and
asked for Capt. O'Shea.
Why O-Shsa Kent Quiet So Long.
Wben O'Sbea wonld see paragraphs in
the newspapers imputing improper con
duct to bis wife and Parnell he woold
write or speak to his wife about it and
there was always some plausible explana
tions, and Parnell always solemuly de
nied that there was anything wrong be
tween him and Mis. O'Shea. When the
facta became too notorious for O'Sbea
longer to believe other than tbe worst, he
was beld lasck for a time by tbe fact that
be bad children. But the case got too
bad at last. He liesrd of his wife and
Parnell occupying a house together for
nineteen weeks in l-&n, then again in 1Ss7
and Is. This was wben they went un
der assumed names. -
A Hrief of the Testimony.
It was not until after tha coople went
to Brighton and lived together that
O'Sbea knew of these armorous assigna
tions and then he applied for a divorce.
Part of the above was substantiated by
Capt. O'Sbea under oath ;by Harriet Bull
who saw tbe couple at Brighton, not
knowing who they really were nt the
time, and by Caroline Peters who took
care of the bouse rented by Capt. O'Sbea
at Brighton and aasr Mrs. O'Sbe and
Parueil together in tl.usptain'a absence.
They both confirmed O'Sbea's charges. At
this point i he conn adjourned for tbe
day. One of Mrs, Obea's counter charges
is that the captain was criminally ioti,
mate with ber own sister. Mrs. Steele,
rarnell Must Step Down.
The chief topic of discussion in political
circles ia tbe case and its remarkable de
nouement. The general belief Is that
Parnell will retire from active public fife
for a time at least, and that Dillon will
take the leadership of tbe Insi parlia
mentary party. Gladstone, it is alleged,
wonld prefer to deal with some one aa
leader of tbe Home Kulers whose private
character is not a subject of unfavorable
goesip, and it Is also declared that the
Irieh Komnn Catholic priests will demand
that the leader of tbeir people shall be
a morally cl.-an mau. There will proba
bly be no occasion for any controversy
over ibis point, as ParneU has himself
taken the initiative, according to trust
worthy advices, toward affecting the sug
gested change of leadership.
