The Wholesale Bankruptcy Business.
<Tilraj.'ii Tunis.
“Wliat effect will this going whole
sale into the bankruptcy business have
on the prosperity of the city?” was a
frequent question on yesterday, after
skimming over the names of the three
hundred and ninety-nine. Jl may be
well to consider this point for a mo
ment. Taken all for all, the eflcct will
lie beneficial. The list, though long,
contains few surprises. At least ninety
per cent, of the less had been discount
ed. It represented the debris of years.
Hardly a case had any of the aspects of
unexpected failures. It was all a putrid
mass, anyway, and now that it is under
ground and out of sight it is far less
harmful than when it was still on the
surface, an uneasy and unknown quan
tity for mischief in all undertakings.
The debts thrown off. as to the hulk,
were fever—ores, remnants of past dis
ease-. Now that they sire gone, the
health of the whole body is improved.
There is, in consequence, more hu-ines
eonfidem e in Chicago to-day than there
has been since the nanic.

Impressive Scene Attending (he Sorrow -

Nuw York 'lVli'jmitii,
On reassembling nl I the house pro
ceeded to dispose of the case of Bishop
Met'oskry, whose resignation was rend
by the secretary. The discussion of
the (piestion must have been very brief,
judging from the short period of time
before the thin I decision was reached.
The doors were then thrown open to
the public, who were invited to witness
the impressive ceremonial of the depo
sition of a bishop of iln> church. The
scene was in evi ry respect an exceed
ingly solemn one. Heside the pulpit
sat the venerable gray haired presiding
bishop, Benjamin B. Smith, of Ken
tucky, 1 lent and dm repid with extreme
age, holding in his handsa closely writ
ten page of legal cap. The other mem
bers of the house stood in the front
row of pews w ith partially bowed heads.
While the presiding hi hop slowly and
falteringly read the deposition Ills
voice trembled with emotion, and a
general air of sadness pervaded the as
semblage. More than once audible
sobs drowned the faint voice of the
venerable reader, who‘arose from his
seat on reaching the latter end of the
document, and remained standing while
he pronounced the sentence <d depo
sition. The doors were again ( dosed at
the conclusion of the ceremony, and
the ordinary proceeding, the (piestion
of the proper manner of causing the
publication of the action taken, was
discussed at length, and Bishop 11 nnt
ington, of central New York, Bishop
Burgess, of Quincy, 111., and the secre
tary were appointed a committee to
furnish information to the secular
rut; snp.vtjon is kihoit..

well known atTonaul proposes to atari

years ago a proposition was made to
Professor King to undertake the task,
the sum of $ I o.tuio was guaranteed oy
i some wealthy New Yorkers to cover
the neeesssarv expense. For prudent
ial reasons the aeronaut at that time
: decided to decline the oiler. Last
winter, however, while making some
[experiments in balloons forlhe How
gale expedition, he was successful in
: discovering a snl stance of such ini
j penetrability that a balloon of 100,0(10
feel would not lose more than 1 per
cent, of gas m twenty-four‘hours, so
that after ajoinoev occupying twenty
days SO, (100 feet oi gas would still re

cry is recognized when it is staled that
an average halloon will lose tin per cent,
of gas in twenty-four hours. This new
idea was communicated to the .New
Yorkers, who renewed their previous
oiler. Professor K ing at once accepted,
and the construction of the halloon
which will occupy the whole of the
ensuing winter and spring, will he at
once commenced.
The halloon will he (he largest in the
