SEVENTH NATIOXALBANK FAILS
INSTITUTION, EMBARRASSED BY TOO HEAVY LOANS,
ORDERED CLOSED BY THE CONTROLLER.
POSTOFFK'E FrXDS IX IT WELL SECURED.
The Seventh Xational Bank closed its doors yesterday morning, a half hour
after the opening of business. The suspension was directed by the Controller
of the Currency, the directors having failed to give him required assurances

and the money therefor l>c paid into the bank by to-morrow night; and National
Bank Examiner Raynor took charge of the hank.
The Seventh National was debco'r yesterday morning at the Gearing House
to the amount of 1644,108, and on receiving notice from the directors that they
had decided temporarily to suspend payment, the committee instructed the man
ager to ehtninate [rom the clearings all transactions connected with the Seventh
National Bai .
All the oilier banks cleared without difficulty, and none are believed to be in
Late in the afternoon a statement was issued by the bank, in which the failure
was charged to the action of Henry Marquand iK: Co. in not taking up their loans
and to the acceptance by the Kimbali administration of collateral which was not
marketable, although probably of more or less intrinsic value.
The country correspondents of the bank withdrew their balances, thus
dosing the heavy debit balance of the bank yesterday at the Cleanup; House.
The institution had been made a depository for postofiice money order funds
through Perry S. Heath's connection with it. The Federal moneys, however, are
secured by government bonds.

by Saturday night, and. secondarily, precipitated
by withdrawals of balances by country banks,

enth National Bank was In session, and that in
a few moments they would arrive at some con
clusion as to what the bank would do. The
Clearing House committee kept the exchanges
back for thirty minutes, and just at that time
were informed that some of the officers of the
hank were coming to the Clearing House to com
municate with the committee.
The president of the bank, Mr. Thomas, and
Edwin Gould, accompanied by William Nelson
Cromwell, their counsel, came before the com
mittee and stated that, in view of the large debit
balance and otl'er circumstances connected with
the affairs of the bank, it had been deemed ad
visable by the board temporarily to suspend pay
After this announcement the Clearing House
committee instructed the manager to eliminate
from the clearings all transactions connected
with the Seventh National Bank.
The Seventh National Bank has been in ex
istence for many years, but was never prom
inent until two years ago, when a controlling-
Interest In it was purchased by a syndicate, the
leading members of which were Perry S. Heath,
at that time Assistant Postmaster-General, and
US brother. Fletcher S. Heath.
The first move of the new interests which at
tracted public attention was the taking over
of the money order business of the Postmaster
at New- York, which had long been controlled
by the Chase National Bank.
An active and successful effort was made by
the new Interests to secure as correspondents
banks In the interior, especially in the Middle
West, where the Heaths were well known and
influential, attention being especially directed, It
is said, to establishing connections with in
stitutions which were government depositories.
The transferring of the balances of these in
stitutions from other local banks to the Sev

here which had had these accounts, and the

Albany, June 26. Mr. B 1. State Engineer.
stated to-day that a few days ago he received <\
visit from two eminent engineers, who brought
him a letter of Introduction from Mr. Hay. Se<
retary of State. Their names h" unfortunately
hail forgotten. These gentlemen said the object
of their visit was to secure a copy of Mr. Bond's
recent elaborate report upon the probable cost of
constructing s barge canal across this State, and
any other statistics bearing upon that subject In
Th->y stated that practically every State In the
Northwest was In favor of the construction of a
lar^.-r canal over this State for tho sak.- of low
ering the n,nt of the transportation of wheat
and other Western products to Eastern markets.
The failure of the canal men of this State last
winter, however, to come to any agreement upon
s plan for canal Improvement was discouraging
to Western shippers, and therefore th<>y dow
thought an appeal should be ma.de to Congress
to Improve the canals of New-York at the ex
pense of .-very State In the I'nlon.
The Western engineers said that It wan be
lieved West that a twenty-one-foot canal should
be buiH from Buffalo to Lake Ontario, aiui then
from Oswego, on Lake Ontario, to the Hudson
River. This is the least expensive line for such
a canal, a canal of twenty-one feet In depth
would cost about $300,000,000 i The United
States, the Western engineers said, would have
to undertake it. New-York state could not tie
expected alone to accept such a financial burden.
Further, the Westers visitors said that before
Congress met again, in their belief, the Congress
men from the States of Indiana Illinois, Wis
consin, Minnesota, lowa. South Dakota, X.
braska and North Dakota would come to an
agreement upon a policy of canal improvement
to be undertaken by the United states Govern

progress, while the roars of saluting cannons
echoed and re-echoed across the placid river and
the crimson and the blue wen flaunted skyward,
in a hundred different forms, and when In th«

lapse, regained the lead and slowly but steadily
forced their shell to the front, the uproar from,

The die was cast ,"00 yards from home. Har
