Mm- h J).-For thc second time in the history of Willimantic a banking iu Htitution has closed its doors. Tho tlr*jt case, was in 1880, when tho Willimantic Trust Company was wrecked by certain stockholders, in spite of the efforts of thc president an.l others to save it. The cashier of this Trust Coin nany was Henry F. Royce, whose methods of financial miitiajfment were thought by many at that time to bc the main cause of its wreck. Now conies another financial disaster in which Royce is the central figure: but, this time, owing to t/hc care of the directors, there is no wreck, but a rescue. The Williamantio Savings Institute to-day dos. d its doors to busi? ness. The directors met this morning and voted to siiRpend the treasurer, IT. F. Royce, and to seale the deposits i:, per rent, nr.'l an aflrBiTla?ajn was taken of tho law ullowinc four months' notice to depositors to close the bank and lxi-iti the work of straightening mutters out. The principal irregularities of the Iron-ur-r ure held by lawyers to be of tho nature nf defalcations. i Inc present directors took charge ai the bunk in June. 1K8JS. Upon their first examination they found that Royce was earning about 1160.000 , in accommodation paper for certain men in New lork. Ili-y at once voted flint this paper -should bc discontinued us fast as ii matured and so in? structed the treasurer. In a few months Hie amount was reduced to afoot 102,000. Mean ; while, presumably ns an offset to this curtailment of his oiK'nttions, it was foond by the directors thar Royce was floating betareen $100,000 and 1 S.'lOO.Ooo in ch-cU-s between New-York and Willi? mantic eaeli month, and tnraaijltl were at once j taken to stop this practice. It was done, it is s-'iid. for the accommodation of men who were not doing I deposit business at the Inst itu'.*. Application was made at the bank for a loan of $70,000 upon the property of the I'm'ted States Stamping Company at Portland, Conn. A ! committee of tho directors. alV-r examining ' the Portland property, reported that it was not safe to lend more than $:ir..000 on it and tho matter was dropped. At the next examination of accounts by the directors, it w;is found that Royce, without the knowledge of the directors, had lent the Portland Comimny thc ST0.000, ac? cepting as ostensible security a tnorigutf.- on the company's property. A committee of the directors promptly investigated the case and found upon the Portland town records no evidence of the alleged mortgage to the Salines Institute. [hoy fouid tssr*t tli* Portland Company's prep erty '"as ful'v Com nd bv incombrances placed ' prior to the date of the $70.000 loan, thus hav? ing entirely unsecured the claims of the Savins* Institute.

SHE CHANGES BEK ATTITUDE, HOWEVER? MYSTEBT ABOTT THE I ASS. A general alarm for missing Beatrice Allison was s. nt out from Police Headquarters yeaterdajr m?.riuiii,'. This, or the knowledge of it, was prob? ably au incentive to the pensons who knew all along of Beatrice's hiding-place to divulge lt to ber relatives, for when a Tribune reporter visit?d Mrs. Allison at her home, No. 81 Last T. nt hot., in the afternoon, she said to him: ? I have gut a clew at last. My mind is compara? tively at rest. The convent theory has come up? permost again, though I yesterday thought lt out of thc quotion." " Is the convent to which you suppose she has gone in New-York ?" " No; Hoboken."' ? But," urged the reporter, M she cannot remain in a convent without your consent, since she is uot of age? " Oh, but she is of age. She is eighteen, and I nm told that positively sho is now mistress of her own actions according to thc law of this coun? try nnd of Canada as well." Mrs. Allis.n Was much affected, and though evidently disincliued to speak bitterly of the re? ligious influences which have deprived her of her only daughter, she could not refrain from saying: " 1 know more about those Jesuits and their ways now. I have become much more familiar with their methods during the last few days than during all my life before." In connection with this it may be mentioned that Mrs. Allison's religious family history isa strange one. Tho daughter of Roman Catholics, and bred in that faith, she married a Protestant Episco? palian, and began to attend his church. He died tvnd left her with two boys and a girl to support with dillieu lty. For a time she lett her children in tho keeping of her sister, who had them all baptized in the Roman Catholic Church. Two rears ago Mrs. Allison brought her sons to New York, but left Beatrice in a convent Behool at Halifax, Nova Scotia. When slie joined her mother and brothers here In : November, she told them that she had been con 1 tinned in the Roman Catholic faith and wanted to 1 bc a nun. The Convent of the Sacred Heart offered to t4ike her. but her mother objected on the ground that she did not want to part from her daughter. Beatrice, however, became as much of a religious devotee as she possibly could without taking the veil. She shunned male society, except that of a few priests, and was an inveterate church-goer. On Tuesday morning she left home, saying that ! she was going to St. Michael's Church, and nothing ! more was heard of her till yesterday. Mrs. Allison was again uren by a TniacyE reporter In the evening. In conversation she used much more reserve than had hitherto been Ii.*r wont. " I know that my daughter is safe and with friends.'' said she, ? and that is all that I can tell you. " Will you have recourse to the courts to get your daughter out of the convent?" asked the reporter. "Oh no," rplied Mrs. Allison, "I'll let her stay where she is, and God-speed to her. I am thankful there has been no wrong doing,?or at l.*;ist. that nothing worse has befallen her. But I nm bitterly, bitterly disappointed in her." If Beatrice Allison hnd seen her mother's face nt, that minute, no other persuasion would have been needed to win her back to the family cir? cle. The inquiries for the irirl have been conducted Bith much difficulty by all concerned. A sus? picion was at one time entertained that Annie Ad 'ins, th'* would-be suicide, was really Beatrice Alliaon; and this induced Mrs. Allison's brother nnd several reporters to visit Bellevue Hospitul in the hope of seeing the girl. The officials de? layed tbe efforts of Mrs. Allison and the .titers for many hours by refusing, not only to let " Annie Adams"' bc seen, but to give a descrip? tion of her clothing I The Rev. John O'Connor, vice-president of the collie of Sa. Fniueis Xavier, who knows Beat? rice well and lins taken much interest in her, was seen yesterday, but his only answer to all re? quests to throw litfht on the earl's fate, 1f ho could, wns, " I hrive nothing to say. I know her only in my ofliei.il capacity." Mia. Allison desires cordially to thank The TRIBUNE and the other papers which have given publicity to thc fact of her daughter's disap paa ni nee aud have endeavored to trace her. MRS. MARTHA I. LAMB NEARLY RUN OVER KNOCKF.n DOWN AND BllUISED BT A GROCER'S CANT? AX t'SKNOWS WOMAN KILLED. Mrs, Martha J. Lamb, the well-known author of a history of New-York City, and editor of" The Magazine of American History." met with a serious accident In llroadway. at Astor Place, at ll a ra. yesterday. She had heard of the death of Chief Justice Waite, with whom t,he had had a persoual acquaintance, and her mind was occupied with the nows as she left her office at 74.1 llroadway, over Scribner's, to walk to a print? ing -ofticc in Lafayette place.

In a somewhat preoccupied state of mind she failed to notice tbo rapid approach of a 9*mt4w*t wagon, driven by Henry Ottaus. of No. 141 Avenue A. A moment later she was struck and knocked flat on th* pavement Her chlu was cut, probably by the shaft of the wagon or by some part of the horse's harness, and in tallinn: i she cut a gash la her forehead. Her bonnet rolled under the wagon. She s-creamed as she fell and several ; men ran to aeslut her. The young driver of the i groccr'6 wagon made an attempt to escape, but he was caught by a policeman of the llroadway squad. Mrs. : Lamb was carried lifo a barber shop in Astor place and an ambulance was called from St. Vincent's Ho-.pl i tal.

Only a professional nurse wus present at thc time of his death. About fifteen minnies before he **sV>sod away, he awoke from what seemed to havo been tn refreshing slumber. " How do you feel ?" the nun*.* asked. ? I feel much better," replied tlie Chief Justice? those were the last words which he spoke. Shortly; afterward the end came, painless, calm, and |*eace ful. The immediate cause of death wus pneu? monia. Lust month a Miss Brownell, an old friend of thc family, was buried from Chief i Justice Waite's house in Oak Hill Cemetery, ilia | body beiug placed in a vault. On Friday last the body wus taken from the vault and placed iii toM j grave, the Chief Justice being present, and it ia I supposed that he then contracted the cold that I resulted so ('itally. He returned from tha aaaa* j immy slightly chilled, but paid no attention to u, I not even mentioning it to members of bis lamil). i On Saturday he dined with Senator Hearst, mIio ] had invited a large company of people to meet the authors who were then in Washington giving i readings in aid of the Copyright League. His I coachman being sick, thc Chiet Justice walked to Senator Hearst's house on Mus-urUnset is-a?>>?., I two or three blocks distant, and back again after . dinner. Upon reaching home he took a warm ! bath, and immediately afterward was seized with a j chill, complained of severe pains in the abdomen, and remarked that something he had eaten had disagreed with him. He went to bcd and remained there all day Sunday. The family physician, who was called in, de? clared after an examination that it was only a slight cold. The Chief Justice himself thought bo, and repeattedly cautioned members of his fam? ily to keep tho fact of his illness from reaching the newspaper* on account of his wife, who on March 3 left this city with a party of friends for California on a pleasure trip. Judge Edgerton, the president of the Civil Service Commission nnd an old friend of the family, has taken iiis I Sunday dinner at Chief-Justice Waite's hourn i regularly ever since he became a resident of Wash? ington. He was there as usual lard Sunday, bul the Chief-Justice was not able to appear at the table. Judge Edderton, however, saw him in his room and in bed. The Chief-Justice begged Judge Edgerton to keep the fact of his illness a secret, remarking that if it got into the papers his wife would see it, and it would destroy the pleas? ure of her trip. He also remarked that un!.'** his doctors positively forbade it. he would no to the court the next day. Judge Edgerton endeav I ered to dissuade him from doing this but tbo I Chief-Justice Lau-.'hlngly replied that he wns not I seriously ill. and that if he should be absent from ! the Court when the Telephone opinion was doliv I ered, his absence would at once be considered to mean that he was ill. On Monday morning he felt no better, after i having passed a restless night. He was deter? mined, however, to go to the Supreme Court. ! Nothing would alter his determination on than i point. He drove to the Capitol in a closed ca* riaire, accompanied by his daughter, Miss Mary Wait.*. It had been his intention to rend tho ; decision of the court in the telephone cases him j self. He had prepared it h-mself. and was rea'.!/ i anxious to read it. but upon reachnip the r.t'r ing-room of the Justices felt not eqnal to th'* task. He therefore rea nested Justice Bia t?h ford ! to read the opinion, which the latter did. Dui> ing the hour and throe-r-iiHrterR which the reading j of the opinion occupied the Chi f-Justice oeru I pied his seat, paying close attention. He looked ! n trifle pale, but except to those who knew him i intimate!v, he did not appear to be suffering. Nevertheless, as soon as Justice Blatchford bad finished he rose and hastily made his way to hi* enrriaee. He Immediately drove home, nnd it became apparent at once that the hours spent In the densely packed courtroom nnd its poisoned air had seriously ag-zmvated his cold. Immedi? ately upon reaching his home he went to bcd, and there he remained until he died. On Wednesday Miss Mary Waite, though still not particularly alarmed at his* condition, tele jrruphed to Cincinnati for her elder brother, C. C. Waite. This was customary whenever tlie Chief Justice was sick, as he was impatient of the re? straint and enforced idleness, and his eldest son could more easily influence him than any one else. The son arrived yesterday morning, and on the advice of Surgeon Ruth, of the United States Navy, an old friend of the family, who had been in attendance with Dr. Caroline B. Winslow, the regular family physician, called Dr. 'lardner in consultation. The decision of the doctors at mid? night last night was that Justice Waite's condition was not serious and that there was no danger. It was decided, however, to summon tbe other MB, E. T. Waite, a well-known la-.w-r of Toledo. Shortly afterward, the Chief-Justice dropped into a sleep, from which he awakened shortly boforo his death. He was conscious up to th'* last mo? ment. Apparently he had not the slightest, inti? mation or his approaching death. He eertninly gave no hint that he thought so. His sudden death under the circumstances is ascribed to heart disease. Mrs. Winslow, his physician, says that death was not the result of pneumonia: it. was rather heart failure. The Chief-Justie" had been lying on his side, and this morning, when he wus assisted to turn over on his back, he remarked to the nurse that he felt more comfortable, and had hardly ceased speaking when he died. Mrs. Winslow says that his death was very sudden, and even surprised the trained nurse who was with him. Dr. Gardner, who was called in as con? sulting physician last evening, said that the condition of the Chi. f Justice was worse yesfrdnv than du-ina the previous days, but even then not serious, but ne said that with the Chief Justice, as in the case of everv man of his strong phraiqua, the disease frequently a sumed with stn rt li ti- sud? denness a serious phnso. Tlie form of the .|ise;.<o which he had is known as conns r,!.eu*nor.ln. The Chief Justice was a firm believer in home, opnthv, and his family physician belonged to thal school. A dispatch was sent to Mrs. Waite, at Los Angeles. Cal., this morning; informing her of her husband's death. It is believed that she will be able to reach Washington by next Thup-day and It is believed that the funeral will tx* delnred until then. Grave fears are entertain.d ol the effect of the news upon her. She is ali tr-terr rn fenn of age, and not in the bes* of health. It is said that the Chief just'ee died a eoir.rnmtively pool min.
