Promise to Pay Dollar for
RECORD PUBLISHING STOCK
•TURNED INTO THE GENERAL
Tha Herring-Hall-Marvin Safe Com
pany Is Forced to Ask
For a Receiver
Associated Press Special Wire
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 24.—Wm. M.
Singerly, president ot the Chestnut
street National bank and of its allied in
stitution, the Chestnut-street Trust and
Saving Fund company, which collapsed
yesterday, Issued the following state
"On Tuesday next, or at the last on
Wednesday, a plan now being formulat
ed, requiring the devotion to its pur
poses of all my assets, will be submitted
ts> my creditors and to the creditors of
the Chestnut-street National bank and
the Cheetnut-street Trust and Saving
Fund company. I believe, and this be
lief Is shared by those who have been
Informed of the situation, that with this
plan, which will Involve partly an ac
ceptance of Record Publishing company
Stock, approved by the creditors, none
Of them will ultimately lose anything."
The only other development In the
Situation today was the formal assign
ment of the trust company to George
H. Earle, Jr., president of the Trades
men's National bank and of other finan
cial Institutions, and Richard Y. Cook,
president of the Guaranty Trust and
Safe Deposit company. This was but a
natural outcome of the failure.
Mr. Singerly's statement comes as a
result of a conference of the directors
of the defunct concerns today, and it is
generally believed that the hope of an
eventual settlement, on a 100 per cent
basis, will be realised.
The only other embarrassment thus
far resulting from the crash was the
assignment today of the Philadelphia
Binding and Mailing company, a small
organization Incorporated In Maine.
CAUSE OF FAILURE
PHILADELPHIA. Dec. 24.—Tho Rec
ord today publishes the following edi
To the Public: The Record Is com
pelled to make a painful personal an-
nouncement this morning. Owing to
the financial embarrassment of Mr.
Wm. M. Singerly, President of the Rec
ord Publishing Company, the Chestnut
Street National Rank and the Chestnut
Street Trust and Savings Fund Com
pany were obliged to suspend business
yesterday.' The weight of business
which proved too heavy for Mr. Singerly
to carry, was his large Investment in the
Singerly Pulp and Paper Mills, at Elk
ton, Md. The extreme shrinkage ln the
price of paper and the resulting depre
ciation In the value of that property
was the primary cause of his embarrass
ment and of the suspension of the bank
and trust companies with which he has
been so closely identified. An extra
ordinary effort was made before the
announcement of the suspension yester
day, to tide over the difficulty and Mr.
Singerly's friends rallied to his assist
ance with rare generosity and fidelity,
but it was found impossible to turn the
assets at his disposal into a shape to
meet Immediate requirements.
A complete statement of the Chestnut
Street National linnk will soon be
available. In the Record property Mr.
Singerly has a valuable asset. The
earnings of this journal during the year
1896, ln excess of all expenditures, were
$310,000. With such a money-maker to
fall back upon and with a grim deter
mination to pay every dollar he owes,
he hopes to redeem his credit and satisfy
The Dank Examiner and his assist
ants were busily engaged today ln go
ing over the books and accounts of the
Chestnut Street National Bank. The
examiner declines to make any state
ment regarding the assets and liabilities
of the Institution, but says he will fur
nish a complete statement when his
investigations shall have been com
pleted. Every effort is being made by
President Singerly and the directors of
the bank to adjust the accounts of the
bank In such a manner that the depos
itors and creditors will receive every
dollar due to them.
Following the meeting of the directors
of the Trust Company, which termin
ated In an assignment, there was a con
ference of the officials of the bank with
representatives of a number of finan
cial institutions of the city, at which
was discussed a plan to raise sufficient
funds to liquidate all the claims against
the bank. President Singerly says he
Is confident some plan can be consum
mated by which creditors of the bank
will be paid in full if the balk be per
mitted to go into voluntary bankruptcy.
The Trust Company has about .",500
deposit accounts and the bank about
100 deposit accounts.
The deed of assignment Is signed by
Wm. M. Singerly as President, and
there is no reserve In the conveyance
of the property of the company to the
assignees. The directors of the Trust
Company held a meeting this morning
and the assignment to Mr. Cook was
the outcome of a discussion of the
troubles of the Institution. It was an
nounced that a statement will be issued
In a day or two, showing the exact con
dition of the company's affairs.
ANOTHER ~ FAILURE
Herring-Hall-Marvin Safe Company
HAMILTON, 0., Dec. 24.—Application
for a receiver was made by Mr. Mosler
this afternoon for the Herrlng-Hall-
Marvln Safe Company, one of the lar
gest manufacturing plants in this city.
I RECEIVERS APPOINTED
NEW YORK, Dec. 24.—1t was stated
that the application for a receiver in the
New. Jersey courts had resulted in the
appointment of W. D. Pounal and ex-
State Treasurer of New Jersey Gray.
Mr. Pounal is vice president of the Her
rlnß-Hall-Marvin company, and has
bean connected with thfe Herring com
pany many years. Messrs. Pounal and
Gray were appointed receivers in this
state for the corporation by Justice
Smyth ln the supreme court this after
noon. The liabilities of the concern are
placed at $350,000. The application for
receivers was made by Stephen A.
Jenks, the president of the safe company,
in proceedings for a dissolution of the
corporation. The Herring-Hall-Marvin
Safe company was incorporated under
the laws of the State of New Jersey ln
sey. with a capital of $3,300,000.
The receivership application in this
state was for the purpose of extending
the New Jersey receivership, and thds
to simplify the handling of the affairs of
the corporation. The company's assets
are said to be Intact; no preference or
security has been given any creditor, and
the entire property has passed Into the
hands of receivers appointed by the
United States courts. A plan of re-
organization has been under considera
tion for some time, as Is well known to
those Interested In the company, and It
has been hoped to consummate the
plan without a receivership.
The Herring-Hall-Marvin company
was organized under New Jersey laws
May 4,1802, with a capital stock of $3,300,
--000, of which $1,800,000 was preferred and
$1,500,000 common. The company ab
sorbed the business of Herring & Co.,
the Marvin Safe company and the Hall
Safe and Lock company of Cincinnati.
No dividends have been paid Blnce 1893.
Although the company was organized In
1892, it was not until 1893 that It got well
under way. Then the panic of 1893 oc
curred. While the company did a large
trade, it was said thut the concern was
operated at a loss. The result has been
to accumulate a large debt, which on
June Ist last was $270,983. Since then
the losses have continued, and the liabil
ities now exceed $375,000. About $300,000
of the indebtedness matured since June
Ist and remains unpaid. Within the next
thirty days notes to the amount of $30,
--000 will mature.
The World this morning says: The
banking and brokerage house of T. E.
Ward & Co.. at 31 nnd 33 Broadway, was
closed by the sheriff yesterday afternoon
on an attachment for $5576. The firm did
a general brokerage business in stocks,
bonds and other securities.
Mr. Ward says the concern would re
sume business in a few days. The firm
failed a few months ago for $400,000, but
settled with its creditors.
THE WHEEL WORLD
A Team Wanted to Competa in
NEW YORK, Dec. 24.—A formal call,
signed by more than a hundred promi
nent cyclists ln all parts of the country,
has been issued In the Interests of the
formation of a national patriotic organ
ization of wheelmen to send a team of
American riders to Europe to compete
In the world's championship, which will
be decided in Vienna during August.
The greatest cycling organizations In
the world are affiliated in one coalition,
known as the International Cyclists' As
sociation. It was the League of Ameri
can Wheelmen which organized this In
ternational association, and the first
world's meeting was held in Chicago ln
1893. In that year and at following con
tests American riders carried off their
share of the championships, but for the
last two years the greatest cycling coun
try in the world has not been represent
ed. It is to give the riders of the United
States their dues ln this regard and to
uphold American Interests in cycling
abroad that this organization, which will
be composed principally of newspaper
men, will try to do what the League of
American Wheelmen and other cycling
organizations have failed to accomplish.
It is intended that only the best ama
teurs and professionals will represent
the United States, and the funds derived
from preliminary meets will be suffi
cient to pay the expenses of the team.
MEMPHIS, Term., Dec. 24.—Three
desperate men who plotted to kidnap
Dr. D. T. Potter, a wealthy citizen and
ex-mayor of Memphis, In order to force
him to sign a check for $15,000, are
prisoners at headq;»»»ters police station.
The prisoners are William Roberts, alias
Ryan, alias KVly, 40 years of age, who
claims to be a lawyer from Pensacola,
Fla., the leader of the gang; W. H. Ben
nett, aged 27, a sewer pipe burner from
Brazil, Ind.; J. H. Womack. aged 26, "a
railroad brakeman, and ex-substitute
foreman on the Louisville fire depart
ment- Womack "peached" on his pals,
and it was through his arrest on a
charge of carrying concealed weapons
that the plot was brought to light. The
prisoner confessed the object of the kid
napers was to force the capitalist to sign
a check for $15,000.
Pensions in Bulk
INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 24.—The vet
erans of the war in this city are circu
lating a petition to congress to settle
with the pensioners on what the petl ■
tlon terms a 20-year plan. The sugges
tion says every man and woman on the
rolls be paid In the amount he would re
ceive if he continued to draw a pension
at the present rating for twenty years.
It Is explained that tbe government
might, within one year after the adop
tion of such a plan, make flnal settle
ment with every pensioner and be ready
to go out of the pension business per
manently. One of the arguments put
forth in support of the suggestion is that
by adopting such a plan the government
could at once abolish the pension de
partment. The veterans are generally
signing the petition, it is said.
Murdered For Money
CHICAGO, Dec. 24.—Catherine Bolts,
65 years of age, was found this morning
with a rope twisted around her neck, and
indications were that she was murdered
for her money. Charles Guitites, who
boarded with Mrs. Boltz, told the police
that last night he gave her a check for
$21.60 in payment of his bill, and that
she had $200 concealed around the
house somewhere. Neither check nor
money could be found today and they
were without question carried off by tho
murderers. Guitites and Zo%ih Jorn
ties, another boarder, are being held by
the police until the case can be fully
Mrs. McKinley's Will
CANTON. 0., Dec. 24—President Mc-
Kinley and his brother Abner are named
as executors of the will of Nancy Alli
son McKinley. The will was filed in
probate court today. It bears date of
May 20, 1895. All the property, save a
little gift to a faithful servant, is be
queathed to Miss Helen McKinley, the
daughter who lived with Mrs. McKinley
at the old homestead.

ST. LOUIS, Dee. 24.—Chas. Tlte, aged
65, employed In doing some work In the
railroad tunnel which runs under this
city, was ground to pieces by a train yes
