Irom one of the Directors, a gentleman
whose whole fortunes swallowed by the
catastrophe: "Sunday .morning," he said,
" Oscar L. Baldwin,the Cashier of the bank,

Examiner, E. P. Shelley, who has been
in town for the past ten davs, examining
National Banks, had notified Baldwin
Thursday that tho bank would be examined
Monday, and this precipitated the dis
closure. At seven o'clock last evening a

was called before the Board and made a

He had loaned money to Nugent Co. some
twelve years ago, without authority from
the Board of Directors and without the
customary collateral, and had evor since
been trying to cover his tracks. Nugent, ac
cording to his story, said tint he owned val
uable properly and would bo able to take up
all his notes, provided a littlo time was
given him. Whenever a note became due
Nugent would pay a portion of it and then
give another note and borrow an additional
sum of money. At length Baldwin protest

Under an arrangement between tho Treas

The system allows tho current to pass
