The latter was then a clerk in tho Treasury Department, but joined Wilson, taking the title of the sheriff. Smith became quits famous ten years ago, as the author of "Listen to My Tnlo of Woe." The acquaintance of wealthy Nathan Snyder and bowitohing Miss Moore resulted in love at first sight. The courtship was short, but its brevity was amply compensated for by tho airdor with which it was carried on. Miss Mooro came to Chicago with tho company. Snyder followed. � Hero tho two hearts found they must beat as one, and a quiet marrliipo was urrangod. It took place today at tho Episcopal parsonage, the ceremony being conducted by Biahou Cheney.

Exciting Scenes on 'Change in American Cities. London, Nov. j 5.-The Bank of England has subscribed �1,000,000, throe joijit stock b/mks have given �750,000 each and two others ,�500,000 each to - assist Baring Brothers. Several other houses have subscribed smaller amounts, all tho subscriptions making a total of �10,000,000. This will constitute a guarautoo fund for three years. It is roughly estimated that the total liabilities of tho firm, inoludiug �10,000,000 In acceptances, amount to �21,000,000, while the asSsjts at prosiJiit piices are valued at �2jt,opo,ooo. The government has authorized the.Eank of England, if necessary, to issuo an acMl-tional �2,000,000 in notes, and will suspend the bank act if requisite. The original cause of the trouble was Rus. sia's ivithdrawol of several millions deposits on learning of tlio firm's dealings in Argentine and Uniguay bonds. It is expected in. coming investors will gradually relievo the strain on the market. bcabe in philadelphia. Enormous Soles in a Few Hours-Money Very Sooroo. PHiLADBLniiA, Pcnu,, Nov. 15.-Tho street broke out agoin in a panic today, and only the early closing of the day's business saved disaster. Standard investment stocks that always are dividend oamiirB went down to surpris. ingly low prices. The fall was conspicuous in Beading general fours. Northern Pacifies and Pennsyl-vanla. The latter declined to 47%, a price that it has not reached tor years, liutho face of tho fact that the half yearly divideud of 2Va per cent, will bo payable within the next two weeks. When It became known just what the Barings' oondition was and the nature ot the help that had been extended them the market took on a more healthy tone, and values all along tho entire ist advanced. The result was that the c osing was much better than was autioipatod. The condition of tho market could no better bo illustrated than by the enormous sales of tho day. In this mni'kot nearly double an ordinary day's business was transacted inside of two hoiirs. Monoy is still scarce in tho local market, and good seouritios. such as Lehigh Valley and Ponnsylvaula, have boon refused as collaterals by a number of the trast companies, not alone beoiiuao the companies do not care to risk money upon them, but because they ha^o not got tlie cash to put up. In the early days of tho monoy scare moneylenders in this city, attracted by the high rate prevailing in New York, sent their money tlioro to be loaned. Money still being scarce, this Philadelphia monoy is still over in Gotham, drawing the unusual premium that prevailed. Another reason of tho sliortage ha,s been the great buying ot securities by Investors at the low prices that have prevailod. Mo.it of these puroha.ses have buuii of New York securities and their local monoy has gone to pay for them. Stil matters have adjusted thomsolvos in this c ty and there is very little or no apprehension felt for tho future. WORTH EIVBR BANK. JMonday Will Toll WhetUer the Dooru "Will Open Again. Nkw Yobk, Nov. 15.-A largo niimber of tho deposltorsof tho North River Bahk have responded to tho circular issued by tho in-Btltution and have agreed to allow their deposits to remain in the bank for a period of 00 days.

' Regarding national banks, Mayor Hart, who is president of tlio Mt. Vernon National Bank, said: "Wo shall not be touched nt nil.

Peabody, senior member of the flrm of ICldder, Peabody & Co., and Boston corrospondenta of Baring Brothers & Co. ot London, received newspaper men and others with groat coolness.

"Nobody will lose a cent, for tUo flrm is all right, and even If they wore not, tho Bank of England stands bohlnd th.om, and that at least should remove any lingorina doubt."       , "What was the direct cause of tho liquidation?" "I don't know; wo have had vorj' littlo, particulars as yet, but probably tho Argentine trouble Is the direct cause." , "Does Atchison figure at the bottom of tho trouble?" "Oh, no! The fact that Mr, Baring is a diroctorin tlioroatl is notmaterlal; The^o-curltles of the firm probably inoludo millions, aside from any lioldings of Atchison stocks and bonds." "But the heavy break in the market price of tlie stock?" "Simply a raid, encouraged by news of the liquidation ot the house, coupled with tha vreiik stock market and tight money." "It isn't a failure, simply an old and honorable business house -going out of business," _ pandbmontom: on ohange. THOniMMADREAHE. But the Inventor of Whale-backs is Famous.

WiiST StiPRRiOR, Wis., Nov-15.-Tho immense yards of the American stoel barge works on Huperior bay, were today crowded witli 10,000 people, among tliora some of the most distinguished marine arcliitocts in tho world. The eight seta ot ways, all bearing vessels in various stages of construction, and the 20 acres ot buildings occupied by tho plant, were gaily decorated, and the 1200 oin-pl.oyes of tho company wore arrayed iu uuiforma and forrnod a guard of honor about two wlialo-shapod monsters that rested on the stocks ready to be launched. The occasion was tho consigning to thoir future element of two wlialoback steam barges, the James L. Colby and tile "100," and the particular interest attaching to tho event lay in the fact that thoso ships, built here at an Inland harbor, tho moat remote po3.iible froni tho sea and in tho heart of tho continent, ai'o to bo takon down tho lakes and through Welland canal for uso in tho oro trade between Cuba and Phiiaciol-plilo. The boats lay broartsido on to tho waters, and were lauiichod that way. Tho Colby was tho first to bo roleased, and as slie gilded into the water the daughter of a congi-ossman broke a bottle of chaiupagno where tho prow would bo on an ordinary vessel, and christened her tho ",Jiime.i L. Colby," after tho vico-iiresidciit of the WLsconsin Central railroad. Bands from Duluth and other towns along the lako playod, and huzzas from tho 10,-000 throats greeted tho voascl asslie.stai'loil, and the Inventor, Capt. McDougall, recoivod an ovation. Tho launching of tho "109" was equally sueoessful. Tho Colby is very lllto tlio Hoyt. which has become so famous. Sho is exactly the saino .shape as tho Welland Canal, having been built with a vioAV to mooting the greatest capacity ot the look, 30 foot beam and 22 foot moulded depth. Her capacity is SOOO not tons and slio is guaranteed to steam lU knota an hour. A cross Section of this vessel would niiiko a perfect oval, hence tho tonn whalobaok. Built entirely of steel plates and ribs, sho will travel, when loaded, subniorgcd almost to the hatches, leaving only tho poop visible. The "lOD" is "Vcry like tliu Colby, but lacks tho elegant equipmoiit of lior companion vessel. Capt.Alexauder McDougall, the inventor and builder of tlio whalobaok. is just now one of the most tiiUcod-about men in maritime circlo.s in the world, iu �that his invention bids tab: to I'ovolutlonizo tho ciu'rying trade ot all the seas, as well us tho great lakes. For 20 years it has boon his droiun lo utilize the tlioory which he held, tliu object of which was tonilniuuzc the displaceiiioiit of the ves.sel, allow ot grout .ipoed, and at tho same time utilize tlio cntu'o bulk or burthen ot tho vossel tor cargo.
