The Vidascopq Moving Pictures at
the theater last night were greeted
by a good-sized audience, and the
performance was more than prom
ised by the management. The pic
tures, without any question, are the
clearest and best ever seen in this
city, and differ from the usual kind
in that the flickering of the pictures
has been done away with, a thing
that has been a drawback for years,
causing the eyes to tire and some
times headache. The film "The Dis
patch Bearer," which is the feature
this week, is certainly an inspiring
picture, and with appropriate music
by Mrs. Louise Ferguson last night,
drew forth a perfect storm of ap
plause. Another big feature was the
illustrated song "My Bonnie Jean,"
sung by Miss Faun Wells, Wenat
chea's leading soprano, which met
with an ovation. She had to re
spond to several encores. Manager
Ferguson is to be congratulated on
the excellent performance, and it is!

show tonight. We understand an

RESUME OFTHE PIC
How the Financial Squeeze Grew
From Small Failure.
CITIES GREATEST SUFFERERS
Three Kinds of Bank Runs—Novel Way
In Which One Was Started—ln
stances of Tragedy and Comedy.
Effect of Paying by Checks.
The financial squeeze has now been
on for a few weeks, and the people all
over the country, realizing that the
worst Is over, are gathering about the
stoves In the corner stores discussing
what might be called the superficial
developments of the panic, says the
New York Tribune. Some of these are
mentioned even yet with the old shiv
er of alarm. In many of them, how
ever, is found humor, in others tragedy.
For Instance, back in Kankakee the
experience of the old "tight wad"
money lender who went to the city to
collect a note, insisted on currency and
had to charter a truck and a freight
car to get It home is greeted with up
roarious laughter. But the story of the
little widow just around the corner is
recalled in silence. Her small sum was
in a city bank which closed. She stood
before its doors a whole night and a
day and came home when the suspen
sion notice was posted weakened in
body and literally seared to death.
The whole trouble seemed to start
from one apparently at that time insig
nificant failure. The failure, however,
was followed by rumors involving the
names of several prominent bankers.
These were soon forced out of office,
and runs started on their banks. The
trouble spread in waves over New
York city. The community's s;>i:ie was
shaken with the cold chills of panic,
and the ague pissed in waves from
Wall street to Harlem, the Bronx.
Brooklyn and Williamsburg. Bank of
ficers who had been skating on thin
ice scrambled for the shore, but their
moves only shattered what support
they had had. and they found them
selves struggling in the cold black wa
tor of the law.
The panic passed over the country
like a wave, with its start in Manhat
tan Island. The cities through It all
have beeu the greatest sufferers. The
directors and other officers of the
banks in the country and the small
cities know nearly every one of theii
depositors personally. When trouble is
brewing and these come around with
blqpd in their eyes and bank books in
their hands, the officers just call them
into the upholstered back office and
explain the situation.
There have been, bankers say, threi
kinds of runs—panic runs, siily ntlts
and runs started by mistake. The
panic runs were the general order re
suiting from the unsettled state of
credit. A number of depositors line v;:
to withdraw, others see them and get
the habit, as it were, and soon the line
can be dignified by the title run.
At least two runs in New York were
started by mistakes in newspaper sto
ries about the general banking sltua
tion. One of these was due to the fact
that many persons read no further
than the headlines of the article. The
neighborhood in which the bank was
situated was used in such a way in
the headline of an afternoon newspa
per that a misleading statement wat
made about a bank that was perfectly
solvent and in no trouble. A run the
next morning was the result, although
the body of the article stated the facts
A run ou a bank up Xew York state
was eansed hi this way: The cashier
got a telephone message from I. rtW
that some medicine was needed Imme
diately for the bahy. The cashier call
ed an office bo/, followed him to the
door of the bank In telling him the
errand and rped him 0:1 his way with
the admonition. "Now., run." Unfor
tunately two o:' thrc? panicky depos
itors were entering and heard only th<>
word "run" coming from the cashier.
They were influential men in the com
munity, and when they immediately
drew out all their deposits their exam
ple was followed by several others
Rumor took up the case there and han
dled it in its old thoroughgoing man
The use of clearing house certificates
and the premium on money have re
suited in some curious incidents, in
St Louis the certificates were accepted
on street cars. In one town in the
middle west where the lack of cunen
cy was peculiarly felt the merchants,
nearly all of whom were manufactur
ers, paid their workmen In the old
fashioned "shinplasters," and the town
is now in possession of a currency of
its own, supplemented by that of Uncle
In the mining communities and
towns in which large railroad opera
tions are going on the employers have
been put to it to pay off their men
and keep them cheerful. A check
means about as much to an ordinary,
section hand as a Sanskrit handbill,
and when the men found they were
receiving these unusual bits of paper
instead of their wages they struck,
and in many instances riot ensued.
And now the climax of the situation
seems to be past. Factories are resum- ■
iug work and paying their men in cur- j
rency. Money has poured out of the
banks of New York city and other
large financial centers and been re-'
placed at least in part by gold from
Europe. Stockings are once more giv
ing up their hoards, and the thin lay
ers of new dust have been swept off
the covers of the strong boxes, and
the lines of depositors are forming at
the right windows to give confidence
to the weak kneed. The goose b
hanging high or higher than it was.
