Wells acted as her agent and negotiated tho loan of that sum from Thomas Crune, a capitalist. The title was searched and declared, perfect; a mortgage on tne ijroperty was drawn up and placed on record" and tho money paid over. � It was discovered' that the real Miss Dick had made no mortgage, and that the woman who received the money was an imposter.

New York, Sept. 15.-Secretary Win-dom announced that he would purchase $16,000,000 of 4 per cent, bonds and prepay the interest on between fifty and sixty millions of 6 per cents, in order to relieve the stringency in the money market. The order will be issued from Washington to-day giving notice that offers for the bonds to b� purchased will be reserved till 12 o'clock noon next Wednesday. Mr. Windom said that he had named $16,000,000 as the amount of bonds to be purchased because, as the entire available surplus is now only $52,00i),000, the treasury has outstanding oflEers for bonds and interest amounting to $30,000,000, and the amount of 4 per cents now asked for will require about|20,000,000,which, together with what will be required for the payment of. interest on the 6 per cents will consume the entire available surplus. ' Mr. Windom further said there was no doubt in his mind that the action taken will bring satisfactory relief if the holders of bonds are disposed to conoperate with, the treasury. .He sees great danger of serious .financial trouble, and it will not be the fault of the treasury department if it comes.: The oflfer for 8 per cents is exceptional, and is not to be regarded as the policy of the- administration, for this purchase, if it shall be made, will take the treasury out of market tor the purchase of that class of bonds, and will -hereafter apply the current surplus to the purchase of the 4i..per cents.
