The court gr;intfd an alternative writ for the hosi)ital to admit him or show why .M a given time. The case cam? up today after having uecn continue*! once. The case grew largely out of the Siitcliffe trouble. The Sisters refus- r:' to admit Gilkenjon because he was a patient of Dr. Sutcliffe and they had received orden; rrom Mother Superior not lo allOTT Dr. Sutcliffe to bring any patients to the hospital pAndintr the -heaJ^nj of charges of tin- professional conduct against him by local pViysiciiins. Those char^os were to have been hoard by the advisory board of the hospital which consists of three physicians.

Mr. Cortidyou's slate meiit made last night alfirming the strong eondiiion of the national bank.'; of (his city also had a very good effect and served to relieve the apprehension of bitsincs.s men that the c>ir- lailiuent or creditors through the situation following tho suspension of pay meni by the Knickerbocker Trust company might, hamper Ihe financing of general mercantile affairs. An iin- favoralde development of the night war, the news Ihat the trust company of .\merica. one of the city's largest financial insiiitiiions. with dejiosits ap- proximaiing fifty million dollars, a'fll the toial as.sets and liabilities in excess ot sixty million dollars was in need o fasislance. The Trust Company of .America had given the statement to lis affairs to other bankers with a request for .assistance. It was announced that liberal assistance would be given it today although it had In its vaults twelve million dollars ill cash. It became known last night also that, the bankers In general did nof. regard tn"e"posillon'fo fhe Knickerbocker Trust company as very favorable and were inclined to permit it lo go into liqui.lation. The London quotations were eagerly awaited. L'ne.-rot people began lo gather early in front of ihe doors of boih the Trust Company t ;i America and the Knickerbocl:er Tru.-:f company. Raleigh Thorne. president of the Trust Company of America, made a statement ear^' today to the newspaper reporters who calleil on him. to the effect Ihat the Instiution was all right. "We have plenty of cash on hand and arc prepared for all emergencies. We are facing the situation calmly." The committee of accountants representing ihe bankers who have taken the whole financial siiuaiion in liand. went into tho offlcos of the Trust company of .Amerlcji at six o'clock tills morning and began an exhaustive ex- aminatliHi of its bo<^iks and the seciiri- ilos held in Its vaults as collateral and loans. The Knickerbocker Trust company Is surrounded by a constantly increasing iiiimbfT of iier.sons. I'hey are disappointed for an announcement was made that It would not resume payment today.

Hardly had he ascended.the steps of the platform when a number of striker.^ got up and left the room. The others hooted and hissed, so that the words ot" tho former president were drowned. In a pathetic way ho appealed to the old?r members of tho union, saying 1.0 had children, and that they should not bo disgraced by the brand- in.g of their father as dishonest without one bit ot evidence and without a hearing. This appeal, however, had litils effect although .1 great many of tho sirikers afur the meeting had adjourned, agreed that Small hod been treated sham-»fiilly, and at least, should have been received with common decenc.v. It was voted at Sunday's meetin.g to assess broker and leased wire op- .Tators two days* pay each week, in lieu of calling them out on strike.
