Washington, D. C, October 23. The
private banking house ot D. II. Cook &
Co. tiosed Its doors this tnorulug. The
concern bad a capital ot $720,000 to 81,
003,000, and bad almost unlimited credit.

I). II. Cook Is brother to Jay Cook,
whose failure precipitated the panic pt
1873. A member ot the Arm staled this
m-rnlng that the liabilities do not
exceed tho assets by more thin $150,
000. It Is thought, however, that tho
crash will prove disastrous. Tho
friend of Cook say that tbe firm Is
only temporarily embarrassed.
It Is genera ly beileved that specula
tion In rall.oad st cks, in which the
flrin has been extensively engaged for
some time, Is the causa of the em
barrassment. Cook Is a general fa
vorite among bis brother bankers here,
and it Is believed he can raise any
amount necessary to resume business.
Washington, D. C, October 23. Tha
following Dolico has been placed on the
door ot the banking boue ot Cook & Co.

A prominent banker ffoied Cook a
loan of $;J0,000 to bridge him over his
embarrassment, but the firm declined the
On the first ot Januaiy last tho liabili
ties of the boue amounted to four hun
dred thousand dol.ars. To-day they aro
a huudred and forty thou-aud U'f.lars.
The available assets aggregate about a
hundred and three thousand dollars,
which Includes a ono-tlilrd interest In
the Washington, Ohio & Western Hal..
road, vamed at n4nety-four thou-auddol-lars,
which Is njw paying six pure nt.
and forty thousand dollars lu the bonds
ot the Florida Coast Cauai, beside
a large I tereat In telephone
stock. None these holdings
can bo at present realized upon at actual
value, owing to stringency In the market.
It Is said the ouuundiug pap- r ot tha
firm Is amply secured by collaterals.
This statement Is borne out by the banks
holding such paper. The firm bad but a
few depositors, Its business being princi
pally buying and selling ot stocks.
A brother f Cook informed a repre
sentative of the United 1'ress that tho
firm will pay a hundred c-uts on tho
dollar, but 1j dolug this the securities

Mr. Cook stated this morning that ho
preferred not to discuss the matter ot
the suspension until be bad seen his
partuer, Campbell, who Is absent In tho
West, and whom ho had been endeavor
ing to reach by telegraph, but jis yet
"The cause ot the failure," said Cook,
"is attributable to shrinkage In values
and the general distrust prevailing re
garding everything aud everybody, and
consequent Inability to collect debts due
the firm, and carrying out contracts la
their lavor. My partner, Campbell,
is absent in the West, and uninformed
of tho action I have assumed the
responsibility of taking. The actual lia
