Denver, July 10. Three national banks
the Union National, the Commercial Na
tional, and the Bank of Commerce have
elowd their iloors owing to the heavy de
mands of excited depositors. The Mercan
tile bank, a small private institution doing
business in the Mining Exchange building,
also suspended owing to the close of the
Union bank, through which its clearances
were made. The susjiciision of three sav
ings banks Monday so alarmmlthe cotn
mnnity that at the hour for opening the
banks crowds had pat tiered in front of
nearly all the financial institutions. At
the German and City National banks the
run was heavy, although the First Na
tional, the People's, and one or two others
felt the unusual pressure to some extent.
Firat Concern to shut Down.
The f-treets were full of people discus
sing the situation. It was an orderly
crowd, however, and there was much sen
sible and conservative talk. The run on
the People's bank soon exhausted
itself and by 11 o'clock affairs had re
sumed their normal condition. At the
City National the run was over by 1
o'clock and t the other banks except the
German the excitement was nil over by
noon. At the German National the crowd
kept in line in front of the teller's window
all the afternoon. A few minutes before
10 o'clock there was posted on the front
and side door of the Union National bank
a notice signed by It. W. Woodbury, presi
dent, announcing that the Union National
bank was in the hands of the comptroller
of the currency: that it tiad paid to deposi
tors in round . numlKTs $1. (ino.no i in the
past month and had $l,cno,in in assets to
meet remaining liabilities, which amount
to about i'jUi.Ust. and that if promises to
the bank were kept it would reocn in a
At Twoof the Other Hanks.
The Commercial National did not open
its doors at all, preferring to avoid the in
evitable run. This notice was posted:
"This bank has gone into liquidation by
order of the hoard of directors." At the
National Iiank of Commerce there was a
long line at the window of the paying
teller within a minute of the time the
doors were unlocked at 10 o'clock. A
frrent rack of gold coin was at the teller's
hand and for thirty minutes he passed out
the money as fast as cheeks were present
ed, lint at 10:30 a notice was hung at
each of the doors reading as follows:
"This bank is closed, liy order of the
board of directors."
The Fourth to I .ay Down.
The Mercantile bank, recently incorpor
ated with a capital stock of $100,000, and
located in the Mining Exchange building,
also closed its doors with W. F. Robinson
as assignee. C. E. Gird, the present city
auditor, is the president of the bank, and
the directors of the concern are considered
as being among Denver's most substantial
business men. The suspension of payment
was brought about by the closing of the
Union National bank, through which the
Mercantile had nflgde clearances. It is con
fidently stated that the bank's depositors
will receive every dollar due them. This
bank bad been in operation only a few
months, and had comparatively few de
posits, consequently its suspension caused
very little excitement.
AVhere Runs Were Withstood.
The City National paid out aliout $:),
000 aud the run stopped, while at the First
National i'-'0,0') sufficed to satisfy deposi
tors. At the State National the run was
broken after f 1 ''0,((0 were paid out. The
German Nationnl paid out $70,0iMiup to
the closing hour and the run was still on.
At the Denver Saving bunk there was a
run in the morning but it stopped at
noon, no money being paid out, ns t he bank
demanded the legal notice.

Murderer Vnknown Police Prosecut
ing a Search.
CnrcAGO, July 19. Four boys aged from
8 to 13 years have fled from South Chicago
after murdering a companion aged 10 and
flinging his IkhIv into Calumet river near
the Illinois Steel company's docks. De
tectives are in pursuit of the boy murder
ers, and the community is wrought up to
a great pitch of excitement over this terri
ble instance of youthful depravity, which
recalls the case of Jesse Pomeroy and
other so-called lxiy fiends. The murderers
are two brothers named Coffee and two
Polish lioys whose names the police at
present refuse to divulge. The victim was
Michael Tuohy, of iS24 Green Bay avenue,
and the crime was committed July 12,
since which time until Monday all trace
of him was lost.
Iteaten and Thrown Into the River.
On the afternoon noted young Tuohy
went out to play as usual and while on
the river batik met the Coffee boys, with
whom he w.is well acquainted. While en
gaged in boyish sport the Polish boys
joineil the party and pretty soon the
Tuohy boy did something which the oth
ers objected to and a fight was precipitat
ed, in the course of which the four men
tioned set upon their companion and
after lieating him tuully threw him into
the river. Terrified at the awful deed
they had committed the four young crimi
nals hid themselves until evening.afraid to
venture out for feartheircrimehad become
known. They had been seen by a number
of people playing with Tuohy along the
river and did not know but what there
had been nn eye-witness to the fatal fight.
Cnnf-ned the Crime to a Itoy.
By dark they had resolved to run away
from home in the hope of escaping the con
sequences of their misdeed, and after mak
ing some slight preparations proceeded to
carry their resolve into effect. As they
were leaving the town they met a com
panion named John McYerry, to whom
they confided their plight, telling him that
they had fought with Tuohy and ended it
by pitching him into the river. McYerry,
also a young boy, was nearly frightened
into a fit by the guilty secret imparted to
him. and for that reason did not tell any
body what he knew until Tuohy's disap
pearance and the disappearance of the
other four boys had raised a stir and the
officers were searching for them.
FOUND THE VICTIM'S BODY,
And the Police Searching for the Young
When the murdered boy did not return
to his home his parents came naturally
anxious and this anxiety was increased
when on Thursday morning a rumor,
which sprang from nobody knows where,
began to circulate to effect the that their
boy had b.-eu drowned while bathing in the
river. The police were at once notified
and a careful investigation showed that
he had lieen seen with the other boys. In
quiry at the home of the Coffees developed
the startling fact that since the previous
night tliiy had not been seen.
As the days went over without any news
of the missing lsivs and the excitement
over their disappearance became more in
tense young McYerry told the police what
he knew and said that the murder had
lieen committed on n mudscow at the Illi
nois Steel company's docks. Monday the
life saving crew dragged the river at the
sjiot indicnted by McYerry, and his story
was quickly confirmed by the recovery of
young Tuohy's body in such condition that
no doubt exists that a murder was com
mitted as described.
The corpse lay between the mud-scow
and the dock and was completely dressed,
just as the unfortunate boy was when last
Been. The Ulea of an nccident while bath
ing is completely disposed of by this fact,
and the flight of the four young criminals
entirely bears out the statement made by
McYerry before the body was found.
The coroner has begun nn inquest, but
postponed it until Friday morning to ena
ble the detectives to continue their inves
tigations and n possible arrest the Coffee
boys and their Polack companions. Mc
Yerry is being closely watched, as it is
thought that he knows more than he has
told the officers.
