Third National Bank.
At a meeting of the stockholders
last Thursday the proposed plan of
converting the Commercial into a
national bank was unanimously adopt
ed and the directors were authorized
to forward proper application at
once. This is, however, a matter of
formality, but it will require several
weeks or months to complete the
process. In the application the name
inserted was the Third National
Bank, which will doubtless be the
name of the bank when the new
charter is granted. Union City
