There are but lew developments In the banking situation, although Receiver Wing, who Is In charge of both the closed Institutions, the Globe and the Broadway National banks, has not paused In his work of readjust ing the tangled affairs. Late yesterday he received word from Comptroller Dawes In Washington that the time limit for the reopening of the Broadway bank, which expires tonight, be extended for one week. This was good news to those who have been working assidu ously toward getting the Institution on its feet. Notwithstanding numerous published interviews with prominent bankers and brokers as to the cause of the recent troubles, the general public have been much in the dark until Receiver Wing's long statement, which has in a great measure thrown light on many of the transactions in the Globe bank. Future Information is looked for when ex-Presl-dent Cole arrives from California and tells his side of the story, probably in the federal courts. Receiver Wing's statement follows: "About Aug. 1 1 came to Boston, under the new system inaugurated by the controller of the currency, for the spe cial examination of banks. On Stpt. 9 I found JGO0.O00 of Globe bank checks outstanding, which did not appear on the books. Mr. Cole admitted this to be his personal loan. "I felt to close the bank would cause not only the failure of that bank, but also, by reason of Its relations to other banks, brokers and business houses, the probable failure of several important banking and business Arms and indi viduals. "Consequently Mr. Blgelow, who was the only director within reach, Mr. Cole and myself went to Washington, and laid the matter before the controller. Mr. Blgelow agreed to personally guar antee that Cole's shortage should be made good to the bank at once, Cole having turned over certain securities to him, and Messrs. Clark and Coolidge assisting in guaranteeing Mr. Bigelow. "The controller of the currency di rected that Mr. Cole should resign at once as president, that the whole mat ter should be laid before the directors, and that I should at the proper time re port the facts to the district attorney. "At this time Messrs. Coolidge and Clark were each borrowing not more than $100,000 of the bank, with plenty of securities at the then market price, and each hud about $75,000 cash on deposit. Mr. Blgelow owed not more than that, and had more than enough on deposit to pay his loan. "On the following Monday Coolidge and Clark gave Cole $80,000. Cole ad ded $12,000 of his ow n money, and re paid $200,000 of the $600,000. The bal ance, $400,000, was repaid in three days by the sale of Cole's securities, a part being bought by Coolidge and Clark through their respective brokers. "The bank's assets were thus bettered by $600,000 in cash. About a month later the facts, so far as known, were laid before the full board of directors, and further Investigation showed that there were $MO,000 more of checks out standing not on the books, and that the indebtedness of the Lovell Arms com pany was really much in excess of the amount shown by the books, and that Mr. Cole was himself personally the holder of nearly $500,000 of the Lovell paper. "There was also found an apparent overdraft of the Squires amounting to $525,000, In addlt Ion to their regular loan, which was in excess of the $100,000 limit. "Mr. Cole admitted his responsibility for this overdraft, either to the bunk or to the Squires, and turned over to the bank his own secuiitlea, including the Lovell paper owned by him, to secure the entire Indebtedness, for which he admitted responsibility. "This amounted to nearly $1,000,000, and the securities turned over, at their then market value, were considerably In excess of this amount. "The six directors and Messrs. Cool idge and Clark then entered Into a written guarantee that these securities should be sufficient to make good tha Cole Indebtedness. "Mr. Stevens, who was elected presi dent Nov. 8, the directors and Messrs. Coolidge and Clark have sine then done everything In their power and made great personal sacrifices to savei the bank from failure. "The bank's assets are better oft to day by about $700,000 cash, over $1,000, 000 of notes and securities, and the per sonal guarantee ef these gentlemen, than It was at the time I brought the condition of affairs to the attention of the controller. "The connection of Cole with the so called copper Interests was not the cause of the Globe National bank's failure, but his connection with these companies had provided him with se curities amounting in te aggregate, at the then market price, to nearly $1,600, 000. These securities were not in the bank when I examined it, but were put up later by Mr. Cole to secure his in debtedness. "In Justice to Mr. Blgelow It should be stated that, as on Sept. 9 he was the largest Individual depositor In the bank, he was also the largest when the bank closed its doors." FtW, IF ANY, PARtLL ELS.T Year Just Drawing to a Close Has Been One of Remarkable Prosperity. Holiday trade activity is significant of the prosperous conditions underlying the general business situation, and re ports, almost without exception, point to a volume of business having few, If any, parallels in previous years. An other significant feature developed also Is that the demand for such goods em braces a higher class and a more ex pensive grade of materials, a conclu sion among trade reporters being that a larger buying capacity exists now than Jn any previous year in the country's history. This favorable condition, too, exists in face of the fact that weather conditions have not altogether favored retail distribution of winter goods, the result being less activity in purely re tail lines than had been looked for, though comparisons with one year ago are generally favorable. Wholesale trade at this season usually shows a quieting tendency, but It Is questionable whether this tendency is as marked this year as in former periods. To the advanced stage ot the season chiefly, and perhaps, also, to the sen timental effect growing out of stringent money conditions In speculative lines, may be charged to some of the quietness noted. Bank clearings for the week, six busi ness days, ending with Thursday, aggre gate $2,221,933,910, a total far In excess of any preceding weekly total ever re ported. Prices generally have shown excep tional strength, the great majority of staple quotations remaining unchanged as a result ot the week's operations As exceptions ti this might ba in stanced Ho':-, pork, coffee and lead, which are gher, while copper, cotton and tin are lower. War news and tight money combined caused a slump early in the week In cotton, but the close found prices of the actual staple, spot cotton, only slightly below the opening. There are evidences that foreign buyers covered heavily at the decline. A contrary movement In wheat was noted early In the week, due mainly to the Influence of possible internatioal complications upon the minds of foreigners, which caused a spurt in values, nearly all of which, however, was lost later on by realizing, Strength in manufactured textiles Is still a notable feature, and considerable business has been done this week on spring account. A further slight gain in quotations of the finer grades of wool is noted, and the heavy weight season for men's wear woolens will open at a substantial advance. In industrial lines generallv. activity is a feature. Advances in wagee of ex tile mill employes have followed close upon Increases in prices of products, and a number of mills north and south are reported running night and day. Business failures are fewer than or dinary at this season, although the ex ceptional money conditions have caused Borne few heavy embarrassments, and the ensuing liabilities will swell the month's totals considerably. The total number of embarrassments this week is 211, as compared with 212 in this week a year ago, and 2S0 in 1897. ElEVIN BURNED TO DEATH. Terrible C lamilv Overtakes Children Who Were Reroarsir.g Far an Entertainment. While the school children of St. Parish parochial school, Seventh and Vine streets, Qulncy, Ills., were rehearsing on Friday for a Christmasentertainment to be given, one of the children's dresses caught fire from a gas jet and 10 minutes later four of them were burned to death, two died an hour later and five others died before midnight. Half a dozen others were burned more or less severely. All these are between 9 and 11 yeurs of age. Helen Zoebbing and several other teachers, Father Nicholas and ProfeB' sor Mushold were painfully burned In trying to save the children. The fire started in a dressing room, Three or four little girls were there dressing for the rehearsal and laughing gaily. A dozen others were grouped in the wings of the stage near the foot of the stairs descending from the dressing room. The glrls In the dressjng room had nearly completed their costumes when one of them brushed against the' gas jet. In an Instant her dress of cot' con and light cloth was in a blaze. She screamed and ran out of the room, com munlcating the blaze to the others as she ran. One of the girls with her dress In a blaze jumped out of a small window Into the stairs leading to the stage and then down the stairs. A flaming torch she was, as she almost fell down the stairs and rushed Into the groups of children standing In the wings. They were all clad like her, In fancy costumes of cot ton, lace and silk, and the fire spread with incredible rapidity from one to the other. The children were panic stricken and .rushed this and that way, screamlnr with pain. Only a few minutes and then four of them sank to the floor dead, Others fell, too, but they still lived, suf fering excruciating agony until relieved by death. Miss Morse Released on Ball. Natlck, Mass., Dec, 26. Medical ex aminer conducted an autopsy Friday n the body of Lewis Perry, who was shot and killed at the home of Miss Lizzie Morse in West Natiek. The phy sicians found that ft bullet frm a 22- callbre revolver had pierced the heart, causing death. The condition of the stomach indicated that Perry had drunk freely of some alcoholio liquor a short time before death. Lizzie Morse, who admits that she shot Perry, after he had forced an entrance to her house, is at home, having furnished ball to the amount of $2500 for her appearance be fore Judge Mulligan. Arnold Stappen, Perry's companion, was not able to furnish bail. He Is held in $2500. PRODIGIOUS DISPENSATION. Many Thousand Enjoyed Christmas Hospitality ol the Salvation Army. New York, Dec. 26.

Orchestral and vocal music added to the general enjoy ment of the occasion. Although pro vision was made for feeding 20,000 per sons, at least half again that number appeared, and the army officers, by dint of strenuous efforts, met the require ments. Boston, Dec. 26. Christmas day in southeastern Massachusetts, while a "green" one, was nevertheless an Ideal holiday, the weather being cool and bright. The first snowstorm of the season, barring a whiff In November, has yet to put in an appearance, while the cold has been also lacking. In this city the Salvation Army led in the charitable work, feeding many hundreds, through the aid of widespread collections, while the various societies and churches also assisted in making the day a merry one for many a poor home. Christmas crime in this city was at a low ebb, the police books being almost f ee from an w sort of trouble. Not Anxious to Return. Los Angeles, Cal., Dec. 26. The at torney for Charles H. Cole, formerly president of the Globe National bank of Boston, and now being detained here on a charge of embezzlement, says that his client will remain here, and that ne move is contemplated until the complaint now on the way from Boston is received and the warrant issued and served. How DniiiM Amnaeil Hlmitelf. Au Interesting anecdote of the elder Dumas, illustrating the author's peren nial flow of line spirits, litis been told. A gentleman, calling on the creator of "Monte Cristo," had been ushered Into a room adjoining the host's studio, the servnnt telling him to go In, as M. Du mas was alone. At that moment (says the narrator) 1 heard a loud burst of laughter from the Inner apartment, so I said: "I would sooner wait until monsieur's visitors are gone." "Monsieur has no visitors; he Is working," remarked the servant, with a smile. "Monsieur Dumas very often laughs like this while at his work." It was true enough; the novelist was alone, or rather In company with ono of his characters, at whose sallies he was simply roaring. In HU Eye. Sometimes a deaf man gives an an swer which makes a wonderfully close hit, although he has totally misunder stood the question.
