As to that portion of their Teport re
ferrlng to overdrafts amounting to 75
000 tills overdraft became1 necessary be
causo of the failure of the City National
bank at Forj Worth the depooitpry of the
rank designated In compliance with su
pieme lodge law At the time of tho fall
me of that bank the rank had about H1
XK on deposit with It There was from
JTOOdO jri f7G0iti or warrants afloat that
had been sent out to beneflclatlcs a dny or
two previous to the elclng of the bank In
pjj ment of death claims To prevent pro
test of these warrants on the part of the
receiver nt the Innk It wis necessary that
no at once provide that amount of money
the arrapgepieut was made with the First
National hank of Chicago they depositing
with them collateral
At the nest meeting of the board of
control It w s determined lo treat tho ST5
000 of collaterals deposited as casti and de
duct them from our assets lu preference to
advertising an overdraft this action was
confirmed by the then board of control
Tho overdraft was reduced from time to
time and the collateral redeemed
The method adopted by the board of
halng the secretary of the board debit all
warrants drawn while the bank was not
permitted to debit our deposits except an
they paid the warrants resulted In a dif
ference between the record of the board of
control and the bank amounting frequently
from snO0O to TOOOO thus our hook
might show an overdraft of from 50OfK
to iOOuO and the bank books show a bal
ance In our favor
This report clalmi that tho financial con
dition at the time certain Investments were
made did not warrant the Investments be

Parker became the owners In fee In the
cases referred to They In turn executed

The property mortgaged U ample security
for the loan and any person leportlng a

The reports that I nmdo loans of 3000
and 3W on the samo real estate In the
names of different partle thin Htntement

These loans were amply secured and In
hoth Instances nald before they wero
dueThe
The loan to the Ellwood Manufacturing
company of De Knlb 111 Is paid In full
Including Interest
As to tlw charge of the board of con
trol that I omhezzled 17 0 of money due
from section No 427 located at Milwau
kee of which J was secretary It Is tin
true and false I have the record evi
dence to substantiate that faetv
By the modo of presentment of tbo fail
ure of the Cltv National bank at Tort
tVorth and tho Texas lands It Is roado to
appear that I am entirely responsible for
this loss This Is not true lJlds were In
vited under the law the City Nntionalbank
of Port Worth was the hlunest bidder nnd
I was compelled under the Constitutional
provision to make the deposit The do
posits began In 1KSS and ran along until
the ralluie of the bank In lew which
failure of course I eonld not prevent nnd
In the details attending the adjustment of
ItB affairs tho board was compelled to in
icst another sum amounting to about fX
000 in Konio coal lands In Texas In order
to save tho equityfor tha benefit of the
endowment rank These lands were u parr
of the assets of the Port Worth bitiL nnd
tho endowment rnnk still own them and
nre receiving a rental of about < yx n yeni
for tho same and nets the endowment tank
between 100 and 400 after paying the
taxes tho same being rented for pasturage
It Is said by gntJ judzes of values that
this tract of land amounting to 24r > si acre
Is worth In tho neighborhood of jlUMJtm
Of course this Is disputed I was not re
sponsible for the deposit of this money
neither for thft failure ot the bank and
contend that If proper management Is had
and the lands are held they will even
tually be sold greatly to tbo benefit of the
rank We have received a dividend of about 43
per cent from the receiver of the bank
upon the deposit we had In the bank
when It failed which was about JHIkh
and tho present receiver says that thern
will be nt least an additional tier cent
dividend which will pay one half of the
principal of tb depoMt

THE PANAMERICAN CONGRESS
All of tho American Governments Wilt Bo

New York July 13 There Is no longer

cl < says a Tribune dispatch over tho
ferheomlng Pan American congress which
Is to meet In the City ot Mexico next Octo
ber with a roprosentatlon ot all the Ameri
can Slates big and little Whatever doubt
may have existed because of tho dlspitte
between Chile and Pent on tho question
of aibltiation 18 dissolved Jby a stulement
Just made at tho buicau of American re
publics to the effect that Secretaty Hay
riulyod assurances that every govcrntneitt
In the Western hemisphere has accepted
lu good faith the luItatlon ot President
Diaz of Mexico to take pait In the con
gtess This aisuraucc It lb further sala
earn to Secretary IJay In response to a
telegraphic Inquiry hent by him several
weeks ago to the United Stales minister
acvieriltwi to each izitluArnorieun country
Kvery reply received by bltn declared in
the most positive terms that tlTe luvlta
lion ot President Dlnz had been accepton
and that preparations for reprosontotlon
at the rongress were well advanced It Is
uipected that within two or three weekn
the names of all the representatives desig
nated by the proper authorities of tho va
ileus nations will be on file lu the bureau
of American republics This Indicates that
Chile never fully Intended to hold aloot
fiom this congress as she did fiom toe
nrst one held in Washington ten years
rgo and also that Peru and her ally Iloli

pvtes of long standing Little Importance
te attached In Washington to the recent
uurrleil departure ot the Bolivian minister
fiom Washington to Caracas Venezuela
Although It was explained nt the time
that he Is accredited by bis government
both to tbo United States and to Venezuela
and that bis visit to the latter country was
In the line of his ofTlelal duties the allega
tlon wad made from inrlous parts of South
America that he had gone to Caracas to
engender iltssatistactlou relative to tho
congress and to persuade Venezuela to Join
Peru Uollila and Kcnador While no de
nial of this rumor has yet come frotn the
minister It Is strongly believed In well In
formed circles In Washington nevertheless
that the replies received by the secretary
stamp the story as unworthy of credence
The official tentative program for tho
congress which has Pnally bctu agreed
upon by tho executive commlttco of the
bureau of American republics Is now made
public for the first time It shows that
only four general subjects will bo especially
urged on tbo congress for consideration
They are
1 Arbitration
2 luiernatlonnl court ot claims
a Measures for tho protection of in
dustry agriculture and commerce Oevel
opment of the means of communication
between tho countries composing the union
Consular port and customs regulations sta
tUtlea
4 tleorganlzation of the bureau of Amer
ican republics
By the terms of this program It is left
optional with the congieBs as to whether
lis action on the subject of arbitration shall
be retroactive as demanded by Pern and
