New York, June 14. The shipment of
currency to the west and south by
New York banks continued to day and
excited much comment. The amount
sent out yesterday ts estimated at
more than a million dollars, and prob
ably anothem million todalyi When
asked as to the cause for the large
shipment, which . Is mainly to the
west, the amount sent out within ten
days being believed to -exceed $14,000,
000, the bankers agree in Baying the
demand was largely due to the dis
trust prevailing everywhere in the
country, and especially in the west,
where there had been a great many
failures both of banks and commercial
houses. A stringency of the money
market Is being experienced at both
ends of the line now. The ' savings
banks, as well as other banks out west,
are all fortifying themselves as much
as possible, and that, especially in the
case of the country savings banks, is
causing the hoarding of money In those
places, and a consequent! drain upon
the banks of New York city. As a re- j
suit many of the New York banks are
being compelled to call in loans in or
der to maintain the lawful reserve.
Tho sending forward of wheat, it Is be
lieved, will only account . for a very
small part of the currency demanded
from the west. As an indication of
how the monetary stringency is af
fecting trade in all its ramifications,
it is reported in Wall street today that
three large merchant houses In Chi
cago are endeavoring to get extensions
in this city from wholesale houses of
which they had bought goods. An
other indication of the etolngency, is
the fact that a large mercantile house
in thls city, of first-class credit and
abundant assets, had to pay 12 per
cent, for an extension to tide over a
tight place. Lack of buying 1b also re
ported to be one of the unfavorable
conditions, and it is generally attrib
uted to a curtailment of credit and a
bad state of affairs in the west, and
generally to .the money stringency and
lack of confidence.
YESTERDAY'S FAILURES. ' i
New York, June 14. A run was
started on the Irving Saving Institu
tion this morning as soon as the doors
were 'opened.,. A speculator was on

on hand a million dollars and could get
that much more at a moment's notice if
This afternoon Superintendent of
State Banks Preston made the follow
Ing statement: "The run will prob
ably be over by tomorrow when the
solvency of the bank becomes known."
The shortage may be larger than al
ready announced, as the channels
through which the money disappeared
are not all discovered. There may be
other dishonest officials than the three
mentioned lost night. No arrests
have been made.
Spokane, June 14. Receiver Augus

receiver will leave to the .stockholders

LIFE SAVING EXHIBIT.
Besides tho exhibit of nil the life-
raving apparatus cnntr.lnc.l In the new
station nt the worfd'B fair, there are
several exhibits of older appliances
which havo Interesting histories,
Among 'them Is the first life enr ever
tilted on the const of the United Stutes,
and with It tho mortar and ball which
. i usury nilJ-inctH to such
work. With- this apparatus, In lStiO, a
ti.V-f.a wii-; crew on Squan beach, New
Jersey, saved ZiiO fives rrom in
Wrecked British ship Arreshlre. The
passengers were mostly Irish lmml-
grants.-some of whom settled In the Im
mediate neighborhood, and it was from
v.-. '.! I Ll.ut--.naut MeOlellan, of the
revenue marine service, who Is in
charge of the station, got the story
which he tells about the relics. Tho
shot, which weighs twenty-five pounds,
struck the deck and bounded down one
of the hatches, striking a woman be-
tween the Bhoulders, but doing her no
injury beyond giving her a great scare.
In the excitement attending the rescue
the ball was detatched from the line
which It carried to the Bhlp when fired
out of the motar. The hulk settled In
the Bund, and, like all such incidents.
the wreck was soon forgotten. In 1S75, .
twenty-five years after, a heavy gnld
set up a current in anmher direction,
and the sand was washed away, and
once more the hull of the Ayrshire
came to view.' A party of wreckers go
ing through the ship's hold came across
the old rusted cannon ball. Its pres
ence excited no little comment among
the wreckers, and when they went
ashore they told their story of the
strange find In the hold of the Ayr
shire. There were some of the people
who came over in the Ill-starred ship
still living in the neighborhood and
they soon explained the presence of thej
big twenty-four-pound cannon ball. It
was sent to the Smithsonian Institu
tion in Washington, where, with tho
curious-looking old mortar and the life
car, it has since remained. Only one
life was lost In the rescue of the pas
sengers and crew of the Ayrshire. It
was that of a man who became too
lmptlent to wait for his turn to go
Inside, the car and insisted on going
ashore on ithe outside. A heavy wave
turned tho car over and he wns washed
ff and drowned.
