Surprising Honesty of a Man Who
A NEW YORK MERCHANT PAVING
DEBTS DUE TO A FAILURE IN
1801?WILL TAKE A HALF MILL?
ION DOLLARS TO SETTLE ALL
CLAIMS?MANY' OF THE CRED?
ITORS ARE DEAD.
New York. Nov. ''4.?Several of the old
firms, or the successors of old firr.is, i 11
the dry goods district have recently been
notified by A. F. Eno that it is bis desire
to pay his share if the debts of the dry
goods firm of which he was a member
and organizer in 18G0,aud which suspend?
ed with large liabilities at tlioj hicakinc
out'of the war.The notices contain che-ks
for Mr. Eno's share of 'ho principal of
the debt, some to the amount of many
thousands of dollars, and in addition to
tho cheeks, assurances that as soon as
the exact amount of the debt is known
and the interest on :t can be computed,
there will be a further check sent, repre
senting the interest at 4 percent, from
18G1. Further, the notices were marked
The firms that received the notices and
the inclosed checks were so astounded
that some cf tbem.in spite of this injunc?
tion, could not keep the secret, and the
matter has been the talk of the diy-goods
district, with nauy a wish that there
might be other visitations of "Provi?
dence ami old-fashioned honesty."
Even after the matter became nublic,
Mr. Eno tried to]laugh the matter olT
with a remark about a "few Southern
credits," anil the emphatic declaration
that he coulil not see that it was a mat?
ter of any gone.nl interest.
The story, however, is gathered from
trustworthy sources. Mr. Eno, before
the war, was head of the firm of Eno,
Rueren & Valentine, which dealt* exclu?
sively in silks and fancy dress goods. .Its
business was principally in the South
It did about a million-dollar business,
which, in those days, was very large.
Thougn war was imminent, there was
little restriction of credits- between the
North and Iba South,mich was the scram?
ble for business almost up to the begin
ninc oT the war.
The bring on Fort Sumpter in 'April,
1801, was the beginning of a business
smash as well as the beginning of the
war. The houses that had largo dealings
with the Soulb, and consequently large
credits there, went Jowu. The Southern
merchants would not pay their debts and
ha'' lor an excuse (hat their creditors
were public enemies and tlint, to give
money to them was to aid the public
enemy of the Confederate States. Eno,
Beuren & Valentine failed two weeks
after the liring on Sumter and made an j
assignment. All that was possible was
realized from the sale of the stock anil j
the business, and the money was used to J
pay the debts of the firm. The dividend
was small, but. the creditors were glad to j
get it and the members of the linn were j
released. The release, of course, wiped
out forever all of the debts of the linn
that were unpaid and left I hem free to
start business afresh.
Mr. Eno, after a short experience in the
army, did go into business again i.i the
firm of lloadley, Eno & Co. This was in
180?. But the old debts were forgotten
bv that time ?nd probably from that
time to this until the letters and checks
were sent our, by Mr. Eno, they were not
agalu thought of by any one but Mr.
Thirty-six years is a long time in busi?
ness, aud^scarc.ely any of the firms that
were the oiiginal creditor* of Eno, Beu?
ren it Valentine are in business now.
Even where the original names were
naintaiued the members of the linn have
changed. In many cases not a single
member of the original creditor firm
survives. In others they are nephews or
even more distant relatives, and in dome
cases the business has passed into other
hands entirely and there is not a relation
of tho old partners remaining.
This is the condition that Mr. Eno
found when ho began to hunt up tho
creditors of the old firm with the idea of
paying his share of the debts with inter?
est thereon. In no case was there a man
who remembered that sunh a debt ex- j
isted. In many cases the old nooks had
been destroyed,and there was no evidence
tnat there had been such a del:t. But in
no case, it is said, did Mr. Eno hesitate
to put the debt into the list, that he in?
tended to pay. Under all these circum?
stances the surprise that ovcicame the
recipients of the Dotices and the checKs
when they got the remittances may bo
imagined, und it is not much wonder
that some of time "leaked." j
A reporter has talked with several of
these cielitors, who saw the uselessness
of try in g'to conceal tho matter once it
had got out. One man said: i
"Well, sir, we were so astounded that
we seriously discussed keeping the check !
and framing it. We were 'not going to
have it, cashed, though it amounted to
several thousand dollars. We thought
that as an object lesson in honesty it was
worth as much as the cash that it repre?
sented. 1 never hal hoard of Mr. Eno.
I bud beard of his father, but I never
bad heard of Mr. Amos F. Eno and never
Imagined that any parson of that nann.
had evt r been ludebted to the firm of
tvhich I am a member."
One of the other creditors ofjthe firm
said be thought that it would very likelv
cost Mr Eno snore than hall a million of
dollars to pay the debts with Interest to
date. Tho thirty six year*1 interest,
without compounding,amounts to a good
deal more than the original debt. At 4
percent, the interest is $144 ou every
Sfl?t) nf principal.

The Lansing Journal Becomes an
Advocate of Free Silver.
Lansing, Mich., Nov. 24.?The Lansing
Journal lms landed in the regular Demo?
cratic camp after having for more than a
year scathingly denounced free silver and
its advocates. It has been by far the
most uncompromising gold Democratic
newspaper in the West.
The reason given for the change of pol
icy is that tho "sound money Democrats,
confronted as they are by the forces of
the Chicago platform Democracy on tho
one side anil by the cohorts of Dlngley
bill Republicanism on the other are la
quite as desperate a situation as was that
lamous scout of Daniel Boone.who. look?
ing ahead of him savs on'y 'InjuDs on the
upper road and death upon the lower.'
"It, therefore, casts its lot with the
i 'Injuns,' say in? that the shameful ex?
cesses of Republicanism, a? evidenced by
eight months of the MeKinUy adminis?
tration, are worse thau any threatened
evils of Populism. It promises hence?
forth support for Mio nationnl organiza?
tion, its policies and its leaders."

"There is little dispute; as to "the facts
in the case," said Attorney Blair. "Lov?
ering admits pricking the prisoner with

Washington, Nov.24.?The special ou
