surrounded the killing" of the un

There are several families of Cro

DEBTS ARE AT LEAST $75,000
Greater Part in Truat Funds In
Which Bondsmen May
.1 a mes
The filing- f a trust deed yesterday
afternoon involving- all the property
of former Mayer S. F. Smith, of Dav
enport, has shocked the business in
terests of that city to their founda
tion. The property is transferred to
W. C. Putnam and A. W. Vander Veer
to satisfy claims estimated at $.10. 0(H)
held in trust ny Mr. Smith, and $2.1,
(M0 of other indebtedness. The assets
include the $:;(.tk residence of Mr.
Smith. $-!).ooo worth of stock in the
Morning Ilepublienn and large real es
tate holdings in ami about Davenport.
Whether the property will be sutlici
int to meet the claims is not yet de
termined. For years Mr. Smith has been one
of the foremost citizens of Davenport
and it was supposed Ids business affair-
were in the best of shape. So
great was the confidence in his hon
esty and ability and so general the be
lief that he was one of the wealthiest
men of the city that various trusts
were placed in his hands, among-them
being the following-:
Estate of Ella W. Parker, widow of
.1. Monroe Parker, of which A. W.
Vander Veer is co-trustee with Mr.
Smit h. about $1S.IMH.
Estate of (harles II. SheatT, of
which Mr. Smith was sole trustee,
Estate of Hiram P.ursie, of
Mr. Smith was executor.
Trusteeship under will of
(rant in favor of Miss Mattie
and her sister, niece of dndge Crant.
Investment funds of Mrs. Isabella
SheatT and Alexander SheatT.
Oakdale Cemetery association, of
which Mr. Smith was treasurer.
The ItondHuifii AnVrtetl.
Mr. Smith's bondsmen are A. W.
Vander Veer, E. S.'Eallard and Charles
Whittaker. in the Shea IT estate; A. W.
Vander Veer. Charles Whittaker and
W. C. Putnam, in the Kaiser estate,
and ... W. Vander Veer is joint trus
tee in the Parker estate, of which Mr.
Smith was also trustee.
The assignment has no effect what
ever upon the Kepulilienn company,
in which he was a stockholder, nor
upon the paper, with the management
f which he ha- had nothing to do
for some time. As Ihe Kcpublican
company is incorporated, the success
or failure in business of any of it
stockholders cannot affect its affairs.
The trust deeds are all well protect
eil by bonds, sinri the loss, if there i
any. will fall upon the other creditors.
Mr. Smith has made no reservation
in turning his property over to be d
voted to a settlement of his debt
save that he specifies that the family
be allowed mi a month for 10 months
for livinir expenses. Even property
that might oe kept under the law of
exemptions is not retained!.
Mr. Smith is a lawyer by profession
but has not practiced at the bar for
many years, being- concerned with flu
management of his business, affairs
He has bet n prominent in church
work and in wide demand ns a public
speaker. With his family he has made
