j CLOSES MEMPHIS BANK
I
| Directors of Mercantile Institution
Blame President C. Hunter
Raine.
Latter. Alleged to Have Lost Funds
in Speculation. Tenders Personal
Estate of S359.000.
MEMPHIS. Tenn.. February m.?Ten
directors of the Mercantile Hunk, one
? >!" the most important financial institu
tions in the city, today tiled a petition1
in chancery court charging that the j
i bank was insolvent as the result of the j
alleged misappropriation of more than I

{ of the institution. '
!ri the petition flame was 1 eld solely

directors ard to conceal his manipula
i tions." the total amount of which, it
was alleged. was lost in speculation.
The petitioii places the liabilities of the
b;ink at approximately with
assets of $ 1.4??S.OS!*. In ;i published
statement. January ?. liabilities were
giver; as fluT. At that time the total
deposits were of which ?*44,UT?

amounted to $489,165; cash items in j
transit amounted to $lo7.77$. These
amounts with other items balanced the
amount given as liabilities.
Auditor Finds Discrepancy.
The alleped discrepancy was discovered
by a representative of a New York cor- j
respondent of the bank, who was sent to j
Memphis last week to audit the books of
the Mercantile Bank when loans request- !
ed were found to be out of proportion to
the amounts usually asked tor at this
season of the year. His report to the
directors yesterday which brought the sit
uation to a climax was the first intima
tion that the bank was not in a pros
perous condition, according to the di
rectors.
It is stated that President Raine. who
attended yesterday's meeting absolved a'l
of the officers and directors of the bank
of implication in the alleged shortage
and tendered his personal estate, which
he valued at ?'.">O.Ouo, to the bank. So far
he has made no formal statement.
The bank was ordered to remain closed
today by state banking officials who are
making an investigation of the bank's
affairs. It is not known when the investi
gation will be completed.
LOST MONEY WORRIES I
OFFICIALS AT TREASURY
First Unexplained Shortage in the
Controller's Office in
Many Vears.
The missing bank notes, aggregating :
a value of $1,250. which the office of j
the controller of the currency has been '
unable to find after a week or more j
of search, is the first shortage not ac- I
counted for in more than forty years. '?
While there is every confidence that !
these bank notes will turn up in the
count of currency soon to be under
taken. the discrepancy is disturbing
as long as it exists unexplained.
Away back irt the sixties a negro mes
senger who had access to the control
ler's vaults stole a package of paper
money. He immediately went upon
have Some of the money was put
into circulation and presumably the
rest was destroyed, as no further trace
of it was ever found.
Impossible to Trace Money.
The man was arrested, charged with
the crime and acquitted. It was im
possible to trace the money found in
circulation to him, arid the possibility
that others who had access to the
vault might have committed the of
fense could not be eliminated. The
negro went free, although there was
? very confidence that he was the of
fender.
Several years ago a package of
money was lost, and the then control
ler of the currency directed that no
man be allowed to go home that night
until the money was found. The ofiice
force searched without result.
On* of the- younger men had an engage
i mervt to take his sweetheart to the the
ater that night, and was irritated be
cause In could not get out to keep the
I engagement. In a moment of peevish -
j nit he kicked at a chair, sending it
i over on the floor and revealing the miss
; ::i- package of money.
: Then it was found that one of the
money counters, to lift liimsef higher in
h -hair had placed the package of
money on the seat, covering it with a
large piece of manila paper.
Found Behind Radiator.
On another occasion a package of miss
ing money was found behind a radiator,
where it had fallen, after many hours of
trouble in searching tor it.
In the present case, the money was
counted out to be sent to two banks, one ;
in Kentucky and one in Illinois. Ap
parently it was all set out properly and
ehecked up. In the last count, before
t aekirig the money for shipment, it had
disappeared. What has become of it is
the problem. In view of the fact that it
w;ts a foregone conclusion that the loss
would be discovered before the close of
the day there is no remotest suspicion
t at theft explains the disappea: ance.

WEATHER MAN'S FORECAST |
IS A BLOW AT COAL BIN:
Predicts Continued Cold Wave in j
This Section, With Slight
Let-Up Friday.
More work for the fellow w ho has to
attend to the furnace is indicated in the
weather bureau's weekly forecast Issued
today, in which it is predicted that cold
weather is to continue in this part of the
country until about next Friday, when a !
short spell?maybe a single day?of ris
ing temperature, with snow or rain, is
to be followed by another cold wave.
This is certainly not a cheerful prospect
for the householder who pays the coal
bill, carries out the ashes, banks the
fires at night and sees his hard-earned
cash transmuted into the goods the fuel
dealers purvey, feeding it into the heater
at the rate of a ton a week.
Our old friend Atmospheric Pressure
is behaving badly, the forecast says,
his general distribution over the entirej
North American continent and out oyer J
the oceans on both s.des thereof being ;
such as to indicate temperatures con
siderably below the seasonal average J
east of the Rocky mountains, at least |
until past the middle of the week- The ;
forecast has this to say. further:
"The weather will be generally fair?
during the first half of the week in the ;
plains states, the great central valleys j
and the north Atlanti" states, fn the
guif and Houth Atlantic states the weather
will be overcast, with probably rains,
along the gulf and south Atlantic coasts
until Wednesday.
Next Disturbance Starts Tomorrow.
"The next disturbance of importance
to cross the United States will appear
on the north Pacific coast tomorrow,
attended by general rains; it will pre- j
vail over the middle west about Thurs
day and the eastern states Friday or I
Saturday; this disturbance will be pre
ceded by a general reaction of higher :
temperatures, and be attended by gen- I
eral rain in southern and snow and ;
rain in the northern states east of the j
Rocky mountain*.
"It will be followed by colder}
weather, which will make its appear- j
ance in the northwest Thursday."
Last night's temperature ranged from !
Z'l degrees above zero to -4 above, ac
cording to the location of the ther
mometer and the locality. The cessa
tion of high winds that mad?- the early
morning temperature yesterday moat
uneornfortabl' brought relief during
the afternoon and last night, and the
cold, though greater than Saturday
night, was not so unpleasant, while
fair skies, bright sunshine and the
frost in the temperature made today
just about up to specifications as ideal
winter weather.

VANDERBILT YACHT DOOMED.
Wrecking Company Abandons Half
Million Dollar Craft to Eeef.
XEW YORK. February 9.?Hope of sav
ing Frederick \\'. Vanderbilt's yacht War
rior. stranded on a reef on the Colombian
coast, has been abandoned. The local j
officers of the wrecking company which i
lias been trying to float the Warrjor re- |
ceived word that the company's tug Re
lief had given up the task after two
weeks* work. It is believed the Warrior,
which cost about half a million dollars,
will soon go to pieces.
Practically everything of value was
stripped from the yacht by the crew of
the Relief, and will be sent to Mr. Van
derbilt from Kingston. About forty trunks
were taken from the wrecked craft, to
gether with valuable paintings, silver
ware and some rare tapestries, which the
owner prized highly.
DECLARES UNITED STATES
FACTOR AT CONFERENCE:
Senator Lewis Tells of Part This
i
Country Played in "Safety !
at Sea'' Meeting.
That the I nited States was a potent
factor in the international conference on ;
safety at sea and that this country fared
well in the results of this conference is
the declaration of Senator James Hamil
ton Lewis of Illinois, who has just re
turned to Washington from the confer
ence in London, to which he was a dele
gate. He said:
"The work of the conference on safety ,
| iit sea resulted in every way to the ad
vantage of the United States. Our gov
! t rnment gets full c ontrol of the patrolling
of the seas and pays but 15 per cent o'
the cost, tho other nations paying the re
mainder. The results of the great suc
cess are due to Judge Alexander of the
House of Representatives, and the offi
cers of our navy and revenue service sent
over by the President.
?'England and France and all Europe
hav< awakened to a new realization of
President Wilson. When lie was elected
he was to them 'Dr. Wilson'?doctor of
philosophy, who was to rule his govern
ment by economic, impracticable theories
Named from ancient European writers.
! .Vow they confess that he has shown
! himself a politician of skill and influence
and a statesman in methods achieving re
sults not excelled by any President in the .
memory of the present generation.
"Europe, with small exception, is with 1
the President in his Mexican policy. The
countries which have recognized Huerta
would do the reverse were it to be done
over. These countries feel that the Presi- ,
dent was correctly informed and they ,
misled." ;
