While It is true that several minor institutions liave been forced to close their doors,' yet two things should be said about them first, that the amount Involved was not so great as to exert any marked Influence 6n the general situation, as these banks were located In residential quarters and did not come Into touch with the larger financial institutions of the .metropolis, and, second, that there' Is every reason to believe that these banks and trust companies are entire ly solvent and their difficulties will prove to be only temporary. ., ' The institutions which closed their doors to-day, with the sums due de positors, were: The United States Ex change bank, Harlem, $800,000; In ternational Trust company, about 1100,000; the Borough Bank of Brook lyn, 44 0 0 0,0 0 0; the Brooklyn bank, $2,300,000; Wlllamsburg Trust com pany, Brooklyn, $7,500,000; and the First National bank of Brooklyn, $3,500,000 The First National bank of Brooklyn, the 'Williamsburg Trust company and the International Trust company were allied Institutions None of these companies had any im portant business connections- with tho larger blanks which are representative of the city s financial affairs. .

BLUMER SPEAKS FOR HJS COMMITTEE Matter Will Be Thoroughly Looked Into SaysPresi- : ' dent Eli Whitney. . Tha prudential committee or the New Haven hospital held a meeting yesterday afternoon in regard to the body which was remembered at the New Haven hospital Wednesday night after it had lain in the morgue eigh teen days. As E. A. Hotchklss' is la Baltimore and Harry Day In Phil adelphia both trying to learn how to i properly run a hospital, according to Mr Coddlngton, the superintendent of the New Haven Institution, a.nd as there are but three members of the prudential committee It would be an Interesting psychological discovery to find out just whom the third member, Dr. 'George Elumer, met. j - At any rate Mr. Coddlngton submit- led a report on the case of Josenh Kobel, who lay unclaimed and forgot ten In the morgue for eighteen days after he iled of typhoid fever, and Dr. Blumer moved and seconded and carried the motion that the matter be laid on the table until the next week when the other two members of tho committee should return with the full knowledge of how to successfully run. -an Institution for the cure of disease. The contents of the report will not', be made public in' full till the return ; of the ijther members of the pruden tial committee, but Dr. Blumer told the Journal and Courier last night , the reasons offered by, the - hos- r pltal for t'c storing of the body in the hospital morgue.,' .Not y a word;, was said In the report about the ex istence of tho M)dy being forgotten,' , the reason for keeping it in tho morgue . being that the authorities . were awaiting the' members of Kobel's family paying the expense of the re- moyal of the body. - Day after, day the hospital waited, and finally Kobel's family, -in whom the hospital ' rested its hopes, backed down, and the hos- , Riti had only the body as a fesult of Its . treatment Turning to the town of Seymour, the hospital authorities" met quite & different reception. As soon as it wad proven that the case was a Seymour one the town sent the W. L. Ward company after t'.io bedy and secured Whether the hospital authorities ; even asked the claimants who they were is a question, ! as Inquiry -.there the night before last as to who took away the body, was unsatisfied, but at any rate some one got the corpse, after it had laid eighteen days In state In the morgue, and the hospital was happy for it was not out financially on account of the case. Eli Whitney, president of the hos-, pltal, and acting president of Tale, ar Well as the head of the New Haven Water company and chairman -of the board of education, naturally has not time to look Into a matter of so little '- consequence and says that the matter Is up to the prudential committee of ' , the Institution, of which, he is presi dent, and that the looking after the disposal of the body was up to the au thorities of the institution of which he is president Whether he meant that It was up to Yale, the water company, the board of education or the hospital to dispose of the 'body was a question after this ambiguous answer, but Mr, Whitney later promised to look Into the matter. Dr. Blumer also will look Into the matter. 'Not only this, but since his f attention Has been called to It by the 3, public press, he will make a thorough investigation of it, providing the other "JJ members of the prudential committee agree. Mr. uoaamg-ton wiu iook into it, the night clerk, Mr. Hall, will un doubtedly help, and also the day force, so It seems that now the matter will not pass unnoticed. However, Health Officer Wright says the matter is noining 10 nun until a complaint has been made. He was in Branford last night and no complaint reached him there when he was interviewed by the Journal and Courier. - FIRB IN EASTFORO WOODS. . Eastford, Oct. 25.
