DAVENPORT DUNN: A MAN OF OUR DAY

CHAPTER I. THE TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCH

When Mr. Davenport Dunn entered the drawing-room before dinner on that

day, his heart beat very quickly as he saw Lady Augusta Arden was there

alone. In what spirit she remembered the scene of the morning,--whether

she felt resentment towards him for his presumption, was disposed to

scoff down his pretensions, or to regard them, if not with favor,

with at least forgiveness, were the themes on which his mind was yet

dwelling. The affable smile with which she now met him did more to

resolve these doubts than all his casuistry.

"Was it not very thoughtful of me," said she, "to release you this

morning, and suffer you to address yourself to the important things

which claimed your attention? I really am quite vain of my self-denial."

"And yet, Lady Augusta," said he, in a low tone, "I had felt more

flattered if you had been less mindful of the exigency, and been more

interested in what I then was speaking of."

"What a selfish speech!" said she, laughing. "Now that my forbearance

has given you all the benefits it could confer, you turn round and say

you are not grateful for it. I suppose," added she, half pettishly, "the

despatch was not very pressing after all, and that this was the cause of

some disappointment."

"I am unable to say," replied he, calmly.

"What do you mean? Surely, when you read it--"

"But I have not read it,--there it is still, just as you saw-it," said

he, producing the packet with the seal unbroken.

"But really, Mr. Dunn," said she, and her face flushed up as she spoke,

"this does not impress me with the wonderful aptitude for affairs men

ascribe to you. Is it usual to treat these messages so cavalierly?"

"It never happened with me till this morning, Lady Augusta," said he, in

the same low tone. "Carried away by an impulse which I will not try to

account for, I had dared to speak to you of myself and of my future in a

way that showed how eventful to both might prove the manner in which you

heard me."

"Well, Dunn," cried Lord Glengariff, entering, "I suppose you have made

a day of work of it; we have never seen you since breakfast."

"On the contrary, my Lord," replied he, in deep confusion, "I have taken

my idleness in the widest sense. Never wrote a line,--not looked into a

newspaper."

"Wouldn't even open a telegraphic message which came to his hands this

morning," said Lady Augusta, with a malicious drollery in her glance

towards him.

"Incredible!" cried my Lord.

"Quite true, I assure your Lordship," said Dunn, in deeper confusion,

and not knowing what turn to give his explanation.

"The fact is," broke in Lady Augusta, hurriedly, "Mr. Dunn was so

implicit in his obedience to our prescription of perfect rest and

repose, that he made it a point of honor not even to read a telegram

without permission."

"I must say it is very flattering to us," said Lord Glengariff; "but now

let us reward the loyalty, and let him see what his news is."

Dunn looked at Lady Augusta, who, with the very slightest motion of her

head, gave consent, and he broke open the despatch.

Dunn crushed the paper angrily in his hand when he finished reading it,

and muttered some low words of angry meaning.

"Nothing disagreeable, I trust?" asked his Lordship.

"Yes, my Lord, something even worse than disagreeable," said he; then

flattening out the crumpled paper, he held it to him to read.

Lord Glengariff, putting on his spectacles, perused the document slowly,

and then, turning towards Dunn, in a voice of deep agitation, said,

"This is very disastrous indeed; are you prepared for it?"

Without attending to the question, Dunn took the despatch from Lord

Glengariff, and handed it to Lady Augusta.

"A run for gold!" cried she, suddenly. "An attempt to break the Ossory

Bank! What does it all mean? Who are they that make this attack?"

"Opponents--some of them political, some commercial, a few, perhaps, men

personally unfriendly,--enemies of what they call my success!" and he

sighed heavily on the last word. "Let me see," said he, slowly, after a

pause; "to-day is Thursday--to-morrow will be the 28th--heavy payments

are required for the Guatemala Trunk Line,--something more than forty

thousand pounds to be made up. The Parma Loan, second instalment, comes

on the 80th."

"Dinner, my Lord," said a servant, throwing open the door.

"A thousand pardons, Lady Augusta," said Dunn, offering his arm. "I am

really shocked at obtruding these annoyances upon your notice. You

see, my Lord," added he, gayly, "one of the penalties of admitting the

'working-men of life' into your society."

It was only as they passed on towards the dinner-room that Lord

Glengariff noticed Miss Kellett's absence.

"She has a headache or a cold, I believe," said Lady Augusta,

carelessly; and they sat down to dinner.

So long as the servants were present the conversation ranged over

commonplace events and topics, little indeed passing, since each seemed

too deeply impressed with grave forebodings for much inclination for

mere talking. Once alone--and Lord Glengariff took the earliest moment

to be so--they immediately resumed the subject of the ill-omened

despatch.

"You are, at all events, prepared, Dunn?" said the Earl; "this onslaught

does not take you by surprise?"

"I am ashamed to say it does, my Lord," said he, with a painful smile.

"I was never less suspectful of any malicious design upon me. I was, for

the first time perhaps in all my life, beginning to feel strong in the

consciousness that I had faithfully performed my allotted part in

the world, advanced the great interests of my country and of humanity

generally. This blow has, therefore, shocked me deeply."

"What a base ingratitude!" exclaimed Lady Augusta, indignantly.

"After all," said Dunn, generously, "let us remember that I am not

a fair judge in my own cause. Others have taken, it may be, another

reading of my character; they may deem me narrow-minded, selfish,

and ambitious. My very success--I am not going to deny it has been

great--may have provoked its share of enmity. Why, the very vastness

and extent of my projects were a sort of standingreproach to petty

speculators and small scheme-mongers."

"So that it has really come upon you unawares?" said the Earl, reverting

to his former remark.

"Completely so, my Lord. The tranquil ease and happiness I have enjoyed

under this roof--the first real holiday in a long life of toil--are the

best evidences I can offer how little I could have anticipated such a

stroke."

"Still I fervently hope it will not prove more than inconvenience," said

he, feelingly.

"Not even so much, my Lord, as regards money. I cannot believe that the

movement will be general. There is no panic in the country, rents are

paid, prices remunerating, markets better than we have seen them for

years; the sound sense and intelligence of the people will soon detect

in this attack the prompting of some personal malice. In all likelihood

a few thousands will meet the whole demand."

"I am so glad to hear you say so!" said Lady Augusta, smiling. "Really,

when I think of all our persuasions to detain you here, I never could

acquit us of some sort of share in any disaster your delay might have

occasioned."

"Oh, Dunn would never connect his visit here with such consequences,

I 'm certain," said the Earl.

"Assuredly not, my Lord," said he; and as his eyes met those of Lady

Augusta, he grew red, and felt confused.

"Are your people--your agents and men of business, I mean," said the

Earl--"equal to such an emergency as the present, or will they have to

look to _you_ for guidance and direction?"

"Merely to meet the demand for gold is a simple matter, my Lord,"

said Dunn, "and does not require any effort of mind or forethought. To

prevent the back-water of this rushing flood submerging and engulfing

other banking-houses; to defend, in a word, the lines of our rivals and

enemies; to save from the consequences of their recklessness the very

men who have assailed us,--these are weighty cares!"

"And are you bound in honor to take this trouble in their behalf?"

"No, my Lord, not in honor any more than in law, but bound by the debt

we owe to that commercialcommunity by whose confidence we have acquired

fortune. My position at the head of the great industrialmovement in

this country imposes upon me the great responsibility that 'no injury

should befall the republic' Against the insane attacks of party hate,

factious violence, or commercial knavery, I am expected to do my duty,

nay, more, I am expected to be provided with means to meet whatever

emergency may arise,--defeat this scheme, expose that, denounce the

other. Am I wrong in calling these weighty cares?"

Self-glorification was not usually one of Davenport Dunn's

weaknesses,--indeed, "self," in any respect, was not a theme on which

he was disposed to dwell,--and yet now, for reasons which may better be

suspected than alleged, he talked in a spirit of even vain exultation

of his plans, his station, and his influence. If it was something to

display before the peer claims to national respect, which, if not so

ancient, were scarcely less imposing than his own, it was more pleasing

still to dilate upon a theme to which the peer's daughter listened so

eagerly. It was, besides, a grand occasion to exhibit the vast range of

resources, the widespread influences, and far-reaching sympathies of

the great commercial man, to show him, not the mere architect of his own

fortune, but the founder of a nation's prosperity. While he thus held

forth, and in a strain to which fervor had lent a sort of eloquence, a

servant entered with another despatch.

"Oh! I trust this brings you better news," cried Lady Augusta, eagerly;

and, as he broke the envelope, he thanked her with a grateful look.

"Well?" interposed she, anxiously, as he gazed at the lines without

speaking,--"well?"

"Just as I said," muttered Dunn, in a deep and suppressed voice,--"a

systematic plot, a deep-laid scheme against me."

"Is it still about the Bank?" asked the Earl, whose interest had been

excited by the tenor of the recent conversation.

"Yes, my Lord; they insist on making me out a bubble speculator, an

adventurer, a Heaven knows what of duplicity and intrigue. I would

simply ask them: 'Is the wealth with which this same Davenport Dunn has

enriched you real, solid, and tangible; are the guineas mint-stamped;

are the shares true representatives of value?' But why do I talk of

these people? If they render me no gratitude, they owe me none,--my

aims were higher and greater than ever _they_ or _their_ interests

comprehended." From the haughtydefiance of his tone, his voice fell

suddenly to a low and quick key, as he said: "This message informs me

that the demand upon the Ossory to-morrow will be a great concerted

movement. Barnard, the man I myself returned last election for the

borough, is to head it; he has canvassed the county for holders of

our notes, and such is the panic that the magistrates have sent for an

increased force of police and two additional companies of infantry. My

man of business asks, 'What is to be done?'"

"And what _is_ to be done?" asked the Earl.

"Meet it, my Lord. Meet the demand as our duty requires us."

There was a calm dignity in the manner Dunn spoke the words that had its

full effect upon the Earl and his daughter. They saw this "man of the

people" display, in a moment of immense peril, an amount of cool courage

that no dissimulation could have assumed. As they could, and did indeed

say afterwards, when relating the incident, "We were sitting at the

dessert, chatting away freely about one thing or another, when the

confirmed tidings arrived by telegraph that an organized attack was to

be made against his credit by a run for gold. You should really

have seen him," said Lady Augusta, "to form any idea of the splendid

composure he manifested. The only thing like emotion he exhibited was

a sort of haughty disdain, a proud pity, for men who should have thus

requited the great services he had been rendering to the country."

It is but just to own that he did perform his part well; he acted it,

too, as theatrical critics would say, "chastely;" that is, there was no

rant, no exaggeration,--not a trait too much, not a tint too strong.

"I wish I knew of any way to be of service to you in this emergency,

Dunn," said the Earl, as they returned to the drawing-room; "I'm no

capitalist, nor have I a round sum at my command--"

"My dear Lord," broke in Dunn, with much feeling, "of money I can

command whateveramount I want. Baring, Hope, Rothschild, any of them

would assist me with millions, if I needed them, to-morrow, which

happily, however, I do not. There is still a want which they cannot

supply, but which, I am proud to say, I have no longer to fear. The

kind sympathy of your Lordship and Lady Augusta has laid me under an

obligation--" Here Mr. Dunn's voice faltered; the Earl grasped his hand

with a generous clasp, and Lady Augusta carried her handkerchief to her

eyes as she averted her head.

"What a pack of hypocrites!" cries our reader, in disgust. No, not

so. There was a dash of reality through all this deceit. They _were_

moved,--their own emotions, the tones of their own voices, the workings

of their own natures, _had_ stirred some amount of honest sentiment in

their hearts; how far it was alloyed by less worthy feeling, to what

extent fraud and trickery mingled there, we are not going to tell

you,--perhaps we could not, if we would.

"You mean to go over to Kilkenny, then, to-morrow, Dunn?" asked his

Lordship, after a painful pause.

"Yes, my Lord, my presence is indispensable."

"Will you allow Lady Augusta and myself to accompany you? I believe and

trust that men like myself have not altogether lost the influence they

once used to wield in this country, and I am vain enough to imagine I

may be useful."

"Oh, my Lord, this overwhelms me!" said Dunn, and covered his eyes with

his hand.

CHAPTER II. "THE RUN FOR GOLD"

The great Ossory Bank, with its million sterling of paid-up capital, its

royal charter, its titled directory, and its shares at a premium, stood

at the top of Patrick Street, Kilkenny, and looked, in the splendor of

its plate-glass windows and the security of its iron railings, the very

type of solvency and safety. The country squire ascended the hall-door

steps with a sort of feeling of acquaintanceship, for he had known the

Viscount who once lived there in days before the Union, and the farmer

experienced a sense of trustfulness in depositing his hard-earned gains

in what he regarded as a temple of Croesus. What an air of prosperity

and business did the interior present! The massive doors swung

noiselessly at the slightest touch, meet emblem of the secrecy that

prevailed, and the facility that pervaded all transactions, within. What

alacrity, too, in that numerous band of clerks who counted and cashed

and checked unceasingly! How calmly they passed from desk to desk, a

word, a mere whisper, serving for converse; and then what a grand and

mysterious solemnity about that back office with its double doors,

within which some venerable cashier, bald-headed and pursy, stole

at intervals to consult the oracle who dwelt within! In the spacious
