Ing the nature of the collaterals securing
this loan, he sent this telegram to E. R.
Thomas, president of the Seventh Na
tional bank:
I nave just received, information from the
national bank examiner that Henry Mar
quand & Co. have loans of a large amount
in your bank, approximating $1,600,000. Un

this loan will be taken up and cash there
for put Into the bank by Saturday night.
June 29, 1 will appoint a receiver for the
bank. Please convene your board of directors
and announce this to them.
In explanation of the conditions Im
posed, the controller explained that while
advances had been made by the directors
to the bank, they had been made up on
the credit of good securities owned by the
bank, but that no such advances affected
the bank's solvency while the Henry
Marquand paper remained. It was neces
sary, therefore, for him, in the perform
ance of his duty, to promptly impose
these conditions before further withdraw
als of deposits were made. The con
troller stated that the Marquand loan is
partially secured and it is hoped that the
loss to depositors will not be large."
The following is the statement of the
resources and liabilities of the bank, as
shown by the report of its condition at
the close of business April 24, 1901:

Controller Dawes says there is no pos
sibility of the government losing anything
by the closing of the bank. In the first
place, the bonds which the bank has on
deposit at the treasury department more
than cover the government deposits in the
bank and in addition the courts have held
that the government always is a preferred
creditor in the sense that it has an equal

Salt Lake, Utah, June 27.—Former First
Assistant Postmaster General Perry S.
Heath, when shown the dispatches an
nouncing the suspension of the Seventh
National bank of New York, said the ac
tion of the officials was a surprise to him.
He added:
I received two telegrams this morning.
Both stated that the bank was In good con
dition and had plenty of funds on hand. I
cannot imagine what kind of a snarl they
have got into. Of course there are Outstand
ing loans, but, so far ac know, they are of
the gilt-edged kind, and the bank has no
outside entanglements. Now the bank has
no stock accounts that I know of. The men
in charge there are among the best and
•hrexrdest in the financial world, and I am
confident the affaire of the institution will
be Btralghtened quickly. I have not the
slightest idea what has brought about the
suspension. It is a great surprise to me.
Some Facts About Perry Heath and
His Brother.
Special to The Journal.
Washington, June 27. —Interest in the
failure of the Seventh National bank of
New York will be increased by the fact
that its fortunes are closely associated
with Perry S. Heath, secretary of the
Republican national committed, and with
his brother, Fletcher Heath. Perry is one
of the directors and Fletcher is its vice
president. Fletcher is believed to be its
chief pro/noting spirit. Through Perry it
has been supposed to enjoy political favor.
About a year ago it was created one of
the government depositors and it now has
about $210,000 federal receipts secured by
$250,000 government bonds. Fletcher Heath
is a promotor of the American School
Furniture company, which secured some
valuable contracts for furnishing Cuban
schools. He is at the head of a big to
bacco combine.
Both Heaths began banking in Muncle,
Ind. Fletcher owns the bank of Hamil
ton, Ohio. Both brotlhers have the name
of being quite rich, bat they are in many
enterprises and the assets are spread out
thin. Politicians here are commenting on
the fact that the Dolkical and personal
connections of the bank were not sufficient
to avert the calamity. The conditions
imposed by Controller Dawes were as
rigid as the most scrupulous could have
demanded. Official outgivings say that
the Heaths were not guilty of any wrong
doing. The blame, ii there is any, is
credited to W. H. Kimball, the president,
■who resigned. Secretary Gage said:
"I do not regard the- failure as the be
ginning of an epidemic, but only as a spo
radic case."
Out of 128 Returned at Helena 102
Are for Perjury- in Secur

Special to The Journal.
Helena, Mont., Jun» 27.—The United
States grand Jury has adjourned after
fourteen days of session, reporting an un
usual number of indictments. In all 128
true bills were returned. One hundred
and two of these have to do with perjury
and subornation of perjury in connec
tion with timber frauds.
It is reliably Teported that the persons
Indicted in these timber cases are those
"who took up thnber land and afterwards
sold it to Senator W. A. Clark, thus vio
lating the law against taking up timber
land for speculation.
The government hats a suit against
Clark in the federal court to set aside
patents for 10,000 acres of timber land
taken up in this manner. Fred E. May
nard. a special agent of the interior de
partment, has been here for some time
■working up the cases against the persons
"who have jnst been indicted. The names
of the indicted persons have not been
made public but several mild sensations
are anticipated.

She says Grape-Nuts was first brought
to her attention on a visit to Charlotte,
where she visited the mayor of that city
who was using the Food by the advice of
his physician. She says, "They derive so
much good from it that they never pass a
day without using it. While I was there
I used the food regularly. I gained about
fifteen rounds and felt so well that when
I returned home I began using Grape-
Nuts in the family regularly.
"My little 18 months old baby, shortly
after being weaned, was very ill with dys
pepsia and teething. She was sick nine
weeks and we tried everything. She be
came so emaciated that it was painful to
handle her and we thought we were going
to lose her. One day a happy thought
urged me to try Grape-Nuts soaked in a
little warm milk.

' Leipsltfer Bank.
Leipzig, June 27.—Herr Exner, direc
tor of the Leipziger bank, which sus
pended payment Tuesday, has been ar
rested. The public prosecutor is investi
gating the bank. The sum of 111,000,000
marks, which forms the bulk of the as
sets, includes 87,000,000 marks loaned to
the Cassel Treber-Trocknung company, o!
which only a small part can be realized
The Tageblatt to-day says the Lelp
ziger bank quite recently advanced an
other 15,000,000 marks to the Cassell
Treber-Trocknung company after it was
known that the latter was insolvent. Rep
resentatives of the leading banks of Ber
lin say there is no doubt all the stock
of the Leipziger bank and its reserve,
amounting to 63,000,000 marks, are lost.
The policy of the Leipziger bank's board
of directors has for years been such as to
lead to the belief that other arrests on
the charge of culpable negligence will fol
low the taking into cutsody of Herr Ex
ner. The members of the board of di
rectors include some of Leipzig's wealth
iest citizens.
Gang of Pickpockets Is Working; the
Country Between Omaha and

Special to The Journal.
Mankato, Minn., June 27.—A man
on his way to Anoka on the early morning
Omaha passenger train had his pocket
picked of $4,500 in drafts shortly before
the train reached Mankato. Two or three

What Property Is in This Category
and What Not.
Washington, June 27. —Justice Bradley,
in the equity court, to-day decided the
Manila bay and Santiago bay prize case.
The decision is in favor of the claimants
as to vessels captured and as to property
taken from vessels so captured, but
against them as to property captured
ashore. The decision holds that vessels
sunk and afterward raised were captured
and not destroyed; that property captured
ashore is not subject to prize; that the
property taken from vessels sunk and not
claimed as prize and for which bounty was
given is prize; that the cascoes or cargo
boats and all floating derricks that were
captured at Manila are not prize.
The Santiago case hinges upon the Ma
nila decision. According to counsel, the
claimants in the Manila case receive a
total of $288,000, divided among about
2,000 persons; and the claimants in the
Santiago case will get in the neighborhood
of $500,000, distributed among about 3,000
persons. These amounts are In addition
to the bounties already allowed by the
court of claims.

Ireland and New Federation
Kmw York Sun 9pmolmt Smrvlom
London, June 27.—Archbishop Keane, who has Just arrived here from Ireland in
an interview said: '
England is gradually granting home rule to Ireland. I have Just ar
rived from Ireland, where I performed the pleasant duty of preaching the
sermon at the dedication of the cathedral of the diocese where I was born
I met many substantial, thinking Irishmen, and found them all optimistic
concerning the outcome of their struggle for self-government. For a full
century England has been making concessions to Ireland, which, when
carried to their logical conclusion, will amount to home rule. The' whole
world knows how stubborn English prejudice is. Yet, after all. English
men love fair play. Ultimately they will yield to Ireland everything fair
• fclay demands. They will give Ireland a Roman Catholic university. Mr.
Balfour has not abandoned his intention to press that bill. His withdrawal
of it was a strategical movement, not a confession of defeat. Englishmen
will continue to liberalize their policy until not only Ireland, but Scotland
and Wales also will have their own parliaments. Then these countries,
knit together geographically, will be represented In an imperial parlia
ment that shall knit them together politically. The world will see in these
islands a second realization of the American system of government.
England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales will be federated states of a great
self-governing commonwealth.

Special to The Journal.
Dcs Moines, lowa, June 27.—A sensation
has been caused among Dcs Moines- tax
payers by disclosures in the books of
County Assessor Frank French. . It is
shown that real estate is depreciating
steadily in value in the business districts,
but is assessed as high as ever in the resi
dence districts. According to the asses
sor's books, big business blocks are de
clining in value and property for which
It is known an offer of $125,000. was refused
a few months ago, is listed at an actual
value of but $60,000. The downtown dis
trict holdings of large firms and corpora
tions show a loss in value of from 30 to 50
per cent, but there Is no reduction on
small holdings in the suburbs.
The assessor has cut off nearly a million
dollars from the valuations in east Dcs
Moines and increased the valuation in the
country districts. ,:■'■■
The board of supervisors is much stirred
up at the disclosures. The west Dcs
Moines : business district is improving
steadily and values are increasing con
stantly, as sales of real estate indicate.
French defends himself so far as east Dcs
Molnes is concerned by declaring business
property there is steadily going down.
The assessor is being condemned in severe
terms, but no official action has been
taken. „..-,

Special to The Journal.
Baraboo, Wis., June William F.
Hill, former editor of the Reedsburg Free

Hill, in the Dane county circuit court.
The Hills were married July 2, 1888, in
Brooklyn, N. V., and: came to Wisconsin
several years ago.
In his complaint Mr. Hill says that he
occasionally visited saloons and that his
wife trained a little dog to follow him,
and she would follow the dog to locate
him and lead him from the saloon by the
ear. While editor of the Free Press he
claims that her constant scolding and
fault-finding at night so interfered -with
his sleep and rest that he could not prop
erly edit his paper, and to get away from
his troubles he found it necessary to take
frequent hunting and fishing trips, much
to the detriment of his business.

J. H. Worst, president of the North Dakota
Agricultural college, United States Marshal
John Haggart, Postmaster Willam Budge of
Grand Forks and Senator Judson LaMoure
of Pemblna are four prominent North Dn
kotans in the twin cities. Senator LaMoure
is here to obtain treatment for the asthma
from which he has suffered greatly during
the past two years. Mr. Worst said that
the state as a whole gave promise of a big
crop. The country between Pargo and Gran
(3in is flooded from the last cloudburst, which
broke with such fury in that section of the
state. The Chautauqua at Devils Lake inter
ests all North Dakota people and a largely
increased attendance is expected this year.
Among the recent visitors here was Marion
Conklln of Jamestown, N. D. One of the
old-timers in the Jim River valley, he is
pleased with the prospects of a big crop,
and harkens not to the stories of the "ghost
er" who would frighten the people with
grasshoppers. Mr. Conklin has attained fame
in politics in North Dakota on account of
the grand charges he has led against repub
lican nominees for various offices, both state
and local. He is one of the real hickory
spokes of the big wheel in the republican
opposition in North Dakota. He made a
spirited campaign against Judge Glaspell last
year in the fifth district, but the republican
votes were too many.
Senator C. P. Buckman of Little Palls, who
is charged with owning a congressional bee
and teaching it to sing a Buckman tune, was
here to transact business and talk to soms
of the politicians. Senator Buckman say?
that there is more business than politics in
his country Just now. He is letting next
year's troubles wait.
Ernest N. Ruel, head clerk at the West,
leaves to-night on a two weeks' trip through
the cast. Mr. Ruel should have left last
night, and thereto clings a story.
It is Mr. Ruel's intention to visit Atlantic
City and several other seaside resorts. To
be strictly in the swim, he ordered his tai
lor to make him a new bathing suit that
would stand the gaze of the critical resorters.
Mr. Ruel is a slim gentleman, as far as
build goes, and the bathing suit that would
fit him right would not contain any great
amount of material. The suit was sent over
in a neatly tied package and taken to Mr.
Ruel's room. As thi3 special tailor rarely
makes mistakes, Mr. Ruel paid no attention
to the salt-water garment until somewhat
late. He tried it on. When he appeared be
fore himself in the mirror he decided that
the styles had experienced most sweeping
changes since he saw the last pictures in ttu
Ladies' Seaside Companion. The thing would
stay on all right, but Ruel could not find
himself In it more than once every fifteen
minutes, and that was only by pulling him
self one way and walking the other. He had
just about reached the conclusion that this
was one of the suits that the down-easter
wore corsets with, when the bell boy came
tc announce that he had put the wrong pack
age in his room.
While Ruel was figuring on the possible use
of that dreary waste of fancy cloth, a Spo
kane man in 400, who weighed some over 225.
and had the same kind of designs on Coney
Island, was endeavoring to land himself In
side the bathing outfit prepared for Ruel.
He had succeeded fairly well, but some of
the stripes had parted company. By the time
the tailor had brought the stripes into clo3<?
order again the train bad gone. Mr. Ruol
Rnd his own bathing suit are now thoroughly
acquainted and Atlantic City can prepare it
self for some wonderful stunts.
