Appropriate 100.000 of the Firms
Fniidft nnd Dlnnppcars.
riTTBnuROH, Fa., March 27. Great
has been caused by the
of tho failure- of 0. P. Marklo & Song, !
if this city, tho widely known papor manufacturers
and coko operators. Thoy aro,
perhaps, tho most extensive firm in that
lino of business in tho country, and fur- i
tished paper to many of the great newspapers
in every city. Thoy mado an assignment
yesterday to Jcsso Lippincott. Tho
direct cause of the ombarrassmont was tho
absconding of Captain C. C. Marklo, tho
hinior member of the firm, with an immense
mount of money in his possession. Ho was
ono of tho most prominent mon in Western
Pennsylvania. An official statement, issued
last evening by tho firm, is as follows:
" CapUCassius C. Marklo left tho city on
tho limitod train west lHst Thursday night,
taking with him, estimated from $00,000 1
100,000 of tho firm's money, leaving their
bank account bare, and no funds to meet
maturing obligations. On Thursday ho
drow nearly $12,000, intended to meet their
pay-rolls at West Newton, Markleton, and
at their coko works in Westmoreland
county. This he took with him.
On Friday and Saturday his brother,
Shepard B. Marklo, was hero, und
after investigating as far as it was possible
in the short time tho affairs of the firm,
and consulting counsel as well as personal
friends, it was deemed advisable, for them
to mako an assignment for the benefit of
their creditors. This has been done, Jcsso
H. Lippincott, of this city, being selected
as their assignee-. It is believed the firm is
perfectly solvent, and that their statcmont
will fhow a largo surplus."
H' 1 C, C. Marklo remained here tha
funi he took with him would have paid
their liabilities well into April, and in
tho meantime their receipts would have
been large. No reason can bo given for
bis unwise aotion in thus wreoking
tho prospects of the firm. Tho sonior
aasmbor, Shepard B. Marklo, as well as tha
balance of the family,heretofore known for
their generosity and hospitality, havo the
tympathy of a' largo circle of friends. Tha
ifabililes of the firm are from four to nv
thousand dollars, and their assets aro
roughly estimated at nearly a million. The
tUrn" was organised in 182U, and was then
composed of tho two brothers, S. B. and C.
P. Markle, which partnership continued
for more than half a century. Tho late
firm composed of General C. P. Markle
and his two eons, Cassius 0. and
Bhopard B., was dissolved last October
by the death of their father,
their business was the most extensive in
the paper manufacturing line that there
was in Western Pennsylvania. Their plant
consisted of two largo mills, containing
the most improved machinery and appliances,
having been entirely rebuilt a fow
years ago in tho town of West Newton;
also the old mill at Mill
Grove, near the former place, and
tho pulp works at Markleton, Somerset
county. In tho latter, together with
several thousand acres of timber lund, thoy
have invested nearly $200,000. In addition
lo these they havo cxtensivo coko works,
with 223 ovens. Tho Bessemer Coke Works
they own entire, and they havo a half
in the Rising Sun. They also hnve
600 acres of valuable farming lands, all
undorlaid with coal, near West Nowton.
This property is not encumbered except to
a small extent, and their credit hus always

St. Loins, March 27. Oby Owen, the defaulting
teller of tho Third National Bunk,
'ho got away with somo $200,000, published
a confession in yesterday afternoon's
Dispatch. Ho says, among "other things:
" Guilty ? It is true that a certain amount
of money passed through myahands and hae
been used by me whioh was not mine. Bui
1 want to stato to tho Honorable Court
the cnuso of its use, and why it wns
used. In tho year 187ft 1 agreed with my
father to provide him with sufficient incituv
lo carry on a commission business, chiefly
butter and cheese, in the name of " Owen
ft. Co.," 1 being tho only member of the firm.
Tho business was commenced by my
money, obtained by hypothecating
with her oonsont fifty shares of the Third
National Bank stock belonging to my sister.
I employed a young man to
attend to tho finnnciul department
of the concern, giving him
full power of attorney to do and
act as attorney fur any business of said
firm. Only a few mouths elapsed when it
tecamo necessary to .support tho concern
tvith more moans, which I did by what is
known as " kiting." This continued for
lorae timo, my attorney conBlnntly assuring
mo thnt in a short time it would be unnecessary
to continue that process of kiting.
After awhile I began to grow uneasy,
and upnn looking closoly into tho of
fairs of Owen & Co., (o my great. surprise
I found, as acknowledged by him,
that ho had deceived mo, and instead
of there boing assets sufficient to cover tho
money advanced by this firm' to kiting, I
found that I was involved to a large
imount. How to extricato myself I knev
aot, but upon reassurances from him that
if I would keep up the business and advance
still further, I should be rloived in
,ime, I did so. I knew not what else to do.
At tho expiration of what I considered "In
lime," I examined the books carefully,
revoked the power of attorney then exi
big, and, engaged another young; man.

Expenses the indebtedness then existing
jotild be reduced,but to do this required
tnore advances. So matters went on until
ihe amount advanced reached tho enorm6u
