MAMM1~OTH- BANK FAILURE.
Three -of the Largest Financial Institu
tions in the West Go Under-Ruinous
Three of the largest financial in
stitutions in the West, the Chica
go National bank, the Home Sav
ings bank and the Equitable Trust
company, of Chicago., all of them
controlled by John R. Walsh of
Chicago, and in great measure own
ed by him, suspended operations on
Monday. Their affairs will be li
quidated as rapidly as possible and
they will go out of business.
Mr. Walsh, who was the presi
dent of the Chicago National bank
and of the Equitable Trust com
panv, and all the other officers and
all the directors of the Chicago Na
tional bank have resigned. , Nation
al Bank Examiner C. H. Bosworth
has succeeded Mr. Walsh at the
head of the Chicago National bank
and the plares of the directors have
been filled by men appointed by the
Chicago clearing house.
Back of the new management
stand the allied -banks of Chicago,
which have pledged *their resources
that every depositor shall be paid
to the last cent, and thi- no custom
er of any one.of the three institu
tions shall lose anything by reason
of the susplension. This action pre
vented a. disastrous financial panic.
- The immediate cause of the col
lapse of the institutions controlled
by Mr. Walsh is said to be the
large amount of money which they
have lent to various private enter
prises of his, notably the Southern
Indiana railroad. and the Bedford
Quarries company of Indiana!
The liabilities of the thiee insti
tutions are estimated in the aggre
gate at $26,0oo,ooo. Against this
amount the banks and trust compa
ny have resources that are, on a
conservative estima,te, worth $16,
