but that Mr. Caldwell's road will

may be imagined. It practically means
the advent of another great trunk line of
railway, and more than that, it may mean
a new bridge across the Mississippi at

THE NATIONAL BANKS.
Comptroller lacey Think They Have
' "stood the Rarket" Well.
Washixgtos, Dec. 3 The report of
Currency Comptroller Lacey recommends
number of safeguards, which be thinks
the experience of the past year has demon
strated to be necessary, such as the defini
tion of the duties of directors, and restric
tions upon their accommodation by the
bink. During the year ended Oct. SI,
H9U there were 1KH new national banks
organized, possessing an aggregate capi
tal of 20,700,000. During the same period
forty-one associations wentinto voluntary
liquidation, and twenty-five became iu
solvent, leaving as a net gain for the
tn elve months 127 banks with a capital of
$1'!. 553, tW. Tbe number of banks in op
erition Oct, 31. 1S91, was 8.6H4, having in
capital stock &iy4,755,St5; bonds deposited
to secure circulation, $!5'?,113,S50; bank
notes outstanding, $.7 1,30$. 14$.
Comment on the Year' Failures.
In Dumber of failures the present ex
ceeds any previous year, but others have
bei n more disastrous in point of capital
Hu l liabilities. It is noted that more than
om-talf iu number of banks which be-
cai.ie insolvent during the period covered
by the report were located in two western
states and that these failures were chiefiy
dm- to the effects of four successive crop
fai ores. It is thown that of the total
nu nber of national banks organized only
per cent, have become insolvent dur
ing a period of twenty-nine years, and
that the annual average loss to creditors
duiing that period has been only 1 30 of 1
per cent, of their average liabilities.

Captain llonrke's Complaint.
Washington, Dec. 3. The United
States consul at Guerro, Mexico, confirms
the news of tbe arrest near that city of
Captain John G. Bourke, Third United
States cavalry, by Mexican officers. Xo
particulars are given further Than that
tbe arrest was made through a mistake
and that his release followed as soon as
his identity was established. Tbe fact
that Bourke w-as on Mexican territory
without permission from the war depart
ment makes the case rather an awkward
one for him to bring to tbe attention of
the war depart meut as tte fact would
make him liable to court-martial.
