Few ptoplo In this city know how close
we wcro to a llunnclal panic last Kovciu
bcr and December. Tbo failure of tlio
great house of Daring Brothers for S100,
000,(00 was felt throughout Iho civilized
world ami shook confidence whorovcr
credit Is n factor lu business. Mr. Davis,
Collector nf Taxes, took In from the tax
payers of this District durlug last Novem
ber moro than $1,000,000, which was
promptly locked up in tlio Unites! States
Treasury. That Is n big sum of money to
lako out of circulation 'at ouo time tun
city llko Washington.
Tho tlu-catcucu panic In Tendon was
stayed by tho procurement of 8l.",OO0,(iOO
in gold by tho llank of Kngland from tlio
Hank of France. That money has since
been returned in tho orlglunl packages.
The Dank, of Encland did not have lo use,
any part of It. Tho fact that tbo money
was thero and that tho Hank of France
wns behind tho Kink of England allayed
suspicion, restored conlidencc and main
Jrtlint amount of money could ac
complish all this in London, the money
controof the world. Ills easy to sco Iho
effect of withdrawing n million lust at.
Ihabtimofrom circulation in Ibis city.
The stringency here was made greater by
some largo depositors who withdrcvv
their money from the banks and locked
it up in the safe deoslls. Bo tight did
monev become that tho banks Practically
censed to discount new pajier. At least
onoor tho largest wholesale grocery houses
in tlio city nollllcd tho retail dealers, who
dealt with it, that settlements for tho
time being must be in cash, as the banks
had stopicil discounting pajicr.
Mr. Davis told of a gentleman who,
during thoso days, went to ouo of the
principal banks in tho city witli n nolo of
$l,tOO, secured by collateral worth $0,000,
nnd could not get the paper discounted,
llusiuess men who had open accounts to
collect will recollect the difllculty there
.was at that tlmo to get money. Fortu
nately public confldenco was not lost.
There was no -general withdrawal of de
posits from the banks no run. Aiul.w
wo weathered tho llnancial gale, sulTcriug
only somo discomfort 'front the rough
,wcathcrbut escaping tbo breakers.
Collector Davis is not doing much busi

WUh tills work, together with a belated
tax-iiayer or so, Mr. Davis nnd his force
nre tent comfortably busy not too busy

The Colonel, then over 80, slapped Mr.

Then lie walked away. He called on
