D. D. Dowell. as Cashier by resolution, thereupon by unani
mous vote of the directors of said Institution. B. F. Beard
was elected active Vice President and General Manager of said

business ability that B. F. Beard, eldest son of the late M. H.
Beard, former Cashier of this Institution, has manifested since
his connection therewith as Assistant Cashier for about 18
months past. It is a compliment, after 'the close observation of
said B. F. Beard byi the Board that it unanimously concluded
that he very justly merited' this compliment in view of the abil
ity he possesses together with the trait of industry and busi
ness qualification which marks him as especially fit for this posi
tion. Mr. Beard's personal habits, his industry and qualifiea
i tion render imperitive and inevitable his steady advancement
at the hands of the Board of Directors of this Institution.
Thereupon, by unanimous vote. Mr. Geo. E. Bess, who has
been connected with this bank for about 4 years, in the capacity
of Manager of the. Trust Department and whose especial quali
fications for banking are now widely known, was unanimously
elected to the position of Cashier of said Bank.
Mr. Morris Miller, who has been with the Bank for the
past twelve months, was then elected Assistant Cashier.
As stated in its resolution accepting the resignation of Judge
fD. D. Dowell as Cashier, the Directors did. so with deep regret,
because Judge Dowell's administration as Cashier of said In
I stitution was eminently satisfactory to the Bank and its many

results will be adherred to in the future.
