I. B. MARTIN, Cashier. MOBB FCHOE8 OF FLACK. Mortgage and Note of Ilepoaltor Tak en from Deposit Boy. Jobn D. Cramer, by his attorneys, Moore Humphrey, filed a petition today In tba district court against the Abilene State bank, Edward Ma kins, receiver, and J. N. Dolley. bank commlsslc-ier, asking the court to do clare certain funds in the bands of the receiver In the sum of 34223.33 to be a trust fund and belonging to Cramer. Cramer claims that he had a note and mortgage for the above sum- In bis private safety deposit box in the bank vault, and that the officers of the bank, presumably the defaulting bank cashier, J. A. Fiack, opened his box, and took the note and mort gage out and placed It among the assets of the bank, and afterward tbe bank sold and Indorsed it to a depositor of the bank In payment of tbe money due the depositor. Cramer's claim Is that Inasmuch as the assets of tbe bank were Increased and bettered by the wrongful act of the officials of the bank, In un lawfully intermingling his note and mortgage v.Hh such assets, he Is entitled to have the amount de clared a trust fund In his favor.
