Sot this statement Mr TownshenU said last

Lastly ho eime cicr to talk over Ills achurau

Xiw understand distinctly thatn yet noth
Inu definite hat been decided beyond tim fact
that the corporation will surely be formed No
teii have as yut been token savo tho nero
concussion of thoplun Mr llcnnott decided
to take 11113 step because tho newspaper Iron

The lltrntil property Is worth ovorv CUlt of

They will not said Mr Townshend This
f purely a personal transaction of Mr Ben
netts Thoro will bo as few stockholders as
pojslble We have not yet been ablo to go Into
the matter thoroughly As soon lie Mr Ben
ntt determined positively to have the corpora
tion ho took his name oft the editorial
pac I think he acted perhaps precipitately
Thoro was occasion for such mete But
from what we have thus far learned wo must
lnvo at least three stockholders I tho com
pany Is Incorporatod under tho amended gen
eral law of 1848 there must bout least thrlo
shareholders I tho company Is Incorporated
under ho special or limited statute there must
be at least nIne Mr Bennett wants only three
I the low will allow It I would bo perfectly
legal for us to have as few AS ton other stock
holder holding only one aharo each so that
Mr Bennett can still hold 1093000 worth of
t capital stock of 32000000 I It U nooes

Tho following despatch received on Bator
day from correspondent of TIIR SUM In the
Xorlhwfiiit was read to Mr Thomas Lowry
last night at the Fifth Avenue Hotel
There Is n well founded rumor that the
Northwestern Guaranty Loan Company of
Minneapolis will not open IU doors on Mon
dar I F Menage largely Interested In Chi
ragn rent estate Is Its President and Thomas
Lowry President of tho Twin City Itapld Tran
bit Company Is I VlcoIrosldent
Mr Lowry said I want to lie ontlrelycan
did with you I ell not believe anything can bo
gained In the present situation except by a
frtnk statement nf tho companys condition
The company mar nol he compelled to clone
Its doors tomorrow but tho suspension onn
nor he put off for moro than two or thron days
have linen In constant communication by prl
Yne wire with Mr Monsgo for him last three
days I was up all last night talking with him
over this wire Some nf niT financial friends
In New York worn with me and wo came to
tho conclusion that tho suspension could not
be averted
The company Is about ten years old am
has I capital stock of 1200000 For several
years tho company has attempted to float
commercial paper It took collateral suffi
cient to cover the paper nail then guaranteed
thin payment of the paper All toil It now
holds about 3000006 of this commercial
paper
Thn stringency the money market has
mad It Impossible for our customers to take
up or renew their notes and unfortunately
we cannot i eallro on tho collateral
have bean VicePresident of the company
for throo years and I attribute the trouble or
our company largely to the want of 1 financial
policy on tho pat of the Government
I would be wrong to say that our troubles
should bo attributed to the Governments
policy Timer are attributable to tho Govern
ments lack of n policy I cannot be too
specific on that point
I have been in hourly communication to
day wIlt President Menage and here N I 1 de
spatch from him saying that with time wo
could pull out I right I have also consulted
our friends In Providence and DOMton anti Now
York nnd all agree that In the and tho com
pany will pay ID full
The commercial pnper Is I the best nf Its
kind and comes largely rom Now England
The companys building In Minneapolis cOlt
f 1800000 Including thn tOOO for the land
paid to Senator Vniliburn ono of our directors
Tho Plllsburyu nro also directors In the
company I cannot give you tonlght 1
complete list of directors I do not be
lieve our companys trouble will Involve
any other institutIons In Minneapolis St
Paul Chicago The looses of our company
will fall upon thin stockholder I believe
thero la I I provision In the laws of Minnesota
making them liable
Mr Lowry said that ho hud teen In New
York several weeks and ni soon ax ho learned
of tho companys trouble had established
wick communication with President Mennge
Senator Washburn tho Plllsburys and other
Senator Wn h burn wus nt Hot Springs yes
torday Mr Lowry received several do
spatches from him all asking for news
of the companys affairs All toU Mr Lowry
said ho hat received I basketful of telegrams
He also had conferences with certain of tho
companys friends In Providence
Mr Lowry said In conclusion that It was no
time to crltlclHO anybody but for all that ho
had not favored tho companys business of
kuarantootng the payment of commercial I
paper
