MR. FITCH'S STATEMENT.
Mr Fitrh later made an informal statement, in
wh , rh he said that the rr.atter was all new to

The-" were n many branch office? ar so many
esstomers that an examination of the accounts
~ou!d take much time "From what I know at
present.'' eontlntxed 111 Fitch, "everything: in
the firm'? affa:rs has been open and above board.
Its creditor? Ken jral ly di?po?e<i, and so do
the bar.ks with mhU± it did business. Its out-

collateral, wnlch in time, of course. will be

Mr Fitch added that the flrrr. wouH rile a
yetitior. In voluntary bankruptcy, probably to
nomnr. He could not verify the figures given
out by Mr. Foster as to the firm's assets and
liabilities.
The troubles of the firm early became known
to its mar.y customers, and all throueh the

When they read Mr. Foster's statement in the

TBY rr.:.r:r TO thf TRIBTNE.]
Baltimore, Nov. 26. — Gould's Western Maryland
TldeTriter Company has secured the extensive
warehouse and dock properties from the Brown
Warehouse Company, The property is at Broad
way, In the centre of the shipping district, and
will be used as an auxiliary receiving rind ship
ping point for the Wabasb terminals. The West
ern Maryland has a. franchise down Jones Fnlls
which would enable it to run its tracks within
thrv blocks of the new wharves. It also has
trackage rights over the Northern Central tracks
of the Pennsylvai to the wurehot.se property,
but for the pn ent neither of these rights will bo
utilised. Freight will be liehtererl to and from
Port Covinston until the demand for greater facili
