Xrw Depositors' Committee,
The new depositors' committee, It Is
thought, will be of great benefit to the
depositors. All are well known and ex
pertenctd In business. Mr. Hloomlngdale,
long tlmu a merchant, for years president
of the Itetall Merchants Association ; Gen.
Itlngham. known as u man of unswerving
honesty, and Mr. Ullinan, ex-Comptroller
of tho Stale, have consented to act with
out compensation simply to explain to the,
depositors who hav oome to them with
appeals for help.
"All of us have beep nnke.l by o many
to help," said Mr. Hloorulngdalo last night,
"that we hav contented to do tho best
we can. W will Insist upon tho best ar
ransemints that can be made for the de
positor!!, and It doe-s not mutter whether
, the amount Involved In a ease Is small or
Jarso we. will treat all Ulke, We will
scrutinize every ulfer and report our de
