Miss Sarah in Pursuit of Harry C,
She Alleges He Promised to Marry Her,
and Palled to Perform.
jlr, G. Admits that He Wrote Her Some
Rather Soft Letters,
But He Emphatically Refuses to
Be Scared.
On the 23d of October last the records of the
Circuit Court contained the bald notice that a
suit had been begun by one Sarah S. Forbes
against Harry C. Goodrich for SIO,OOO. What
tbe suit was for was left to the imagination of
men to figure out, and the conclusion most
natural, Irom the fact that the opposing parties
were male and female, was that it was another
case of Bordweil vs. Pickwick. Time skipped
on, and still no farther light was shed from the
luminous pages of the Court records. Along
about the last of January, however, the plaintiff
filed her declaration, and the above conclusion
as to what it all meant was verified by the mat
ter which it contained. The ground for the
suit was an alleged breach of promise on
the part of the male to mate with the
female, according to the rules and usages of civ
ilized society and in the manner prescribed by
some one of the dozen or more marriage serv
ices. ,
Miss Forbes set out that on the Ist of October,
IS7C, in consideration that she would marry him,
the said Goodrich, he faithluily promised he
would marry her when he should be thereunto
thercaflerwards requested. Confiding in ins
promise she has ever since remained, unmarried
and willing to accept him, but he has never
offered to fulfill his engagement. Then,
to make tlie case still stronger, she
repeats her complaint in a different form, charg
ing that he promised to marry her within a rea
sonable time, but has failed to do so. Then a
third time, in order to give him no loophole of
escape, she alleges tiiat lie promised, on the Ist
ol October, to uiarry her within a reasonable
time, and mat she subsequently requested him to
keep his engagement, bnt he refused. In conse
quence oi which she regards herself damaged to
tue extent of about 510,000.
This was the trouble in a nutshell,—according
to the lady in the case. Unexplained, it put me
defendant in a rather unenviable light, and none
the less so when it was remembered mat Mr.
Goodrich was not what might be said
to be a gay and frisky young
man like Nephew Felton, but, on me contrary,
a gentleman of mature years, who has been
married for something like a quarter of a cen
tury, and has given hostages to society, as one
might say, besides having benefited mankind
by discovering Bodiue, by the invention of cer
tain atiachmems to sewing-machines, and, more
latterly, an ingenious arrangement known as
an indestructible and water-proof boot and shoe
sole. It was therefore due to Mr. Goodrich to
bunt him up and give him
a chance to explain HIMSELF
and set himself right before the community.
Accordingly a reporter made a pilgrimage to
tne sole-factory yesterday, found Mr. Goodrich,
told him what was in the wind, anti wanted him
to unbosom himself. He did so.
‘•Wh}*,” said he, “1 supposed this was all
done with. Last fall this woman filed a notice,
or some such sort of thing,—l ain’t a lawyer
and don’t know just what to cail it,—of a suit
against me for breach oi promise. Well, a day
was set when she was to put iu a declaration, —
give particulars, or something of that sort, —
and I was there that day. No declaration was
put in, and that confirmed me in the conclusion
that she was trying to get some money out of
me, aiui tbomrut me notice would scare me.
But I don’t scare worth a cent.' Weil, now, this
is her latest. X suppose she got tired of wait
ing, and thought she’d stir me un a little, and
try to scare me some more. Again, I don’t
scare worth a cent. In fact,
won’t be scared under any consideration. It’s
sitnplr a esse of blackmail, nothing more nor
Jess, and i refuse to be bled one cent.”
vou never made her any promises to
“None in God’s world.”
” Well, what do you know of her! Tell us
all you know about it.”
“She used to work for the Wilsons—the sew-
ing-machiue lolks—iu New Orleans. They dis
pensed with her, and she came up here and tried
to get work, ami appealed to roe among others
to help her. I bad a place on Adams street
then, —was making attachments for sewing
machines, —and she told such a story that I
gave her work. Well, she was'alwars wanting
me to help her out of distress. One* time her
landlord was going to turn her out of doors if the
rent wasn’t planked down rlgnt off. Well,l pitied
her and gave her the money. That opened the
door for lurther applications, and they were not
long in coming. Sometimes she would write
notes—and—well—in short, I was consarued
sent her letters back and put mine inside of
them. But! didn’t make any promises to her
of marriage, or anything of the kind,—just pitied
her, and was—well—l guess, pretty sentimental.
You see, she knew how to lix herself up, and
make believe she was just ready to go to the
Poor-House, and then she got a hold on my
sympathies, and I helped her.”
•‘Sort of gave yourself away, eh?”
“ Y'es—made a darned fool of myself; sentber
letters back, instead of keeping ’em, and wrote
her these notes besides.”
“They dun’t compromise you, do they?”
“Not at ail, but I suppose she expects to
make something out of ’em, —thinks 1 can be
made to come down for the sake of getting ’em
back, or something of that kind. But I ain’t
one of the scary kind, and it won’t do her any
“ iVcll, who is she, any way?”
*’ When she worked for me her name was
Minnie S. Forpes. Now X see she goes under
the name of Sarah. She had been married, —
husband’s name Delay, or something like that,
—but she got a divorce from him, and her law
)er then is the same person that’s looking alter

tised iu me ifaws—either she did or somebody
else did—that a certain person had
which “H. C. G.” might he desirous of obtain

advertisement and making an appointment, or
something of that kind/ ’Well, 'that little
scheme failed, and then she wrote to my wife
that she bad letters from me and that they
might be of sufficient interest to rue in a finan
«*ial way to make me desirous of obtaining them.
My wife asked me about. It, and I told her the
whole story, and I hiivcu’t heard anything
about her since until this business in the courts
organ. Ail she wanted was to make me eomc
sown, but I wouldn’t do it, and now she thinks
*hc can bleed me by beginning suit against me
for breach of promise. But this won’t work,
cither, and wheu she finds it out she’ll quietly
withdraw the suit and pull out, rather
D. B. Directory, and she’d just as soon not
have herrecord shown up. As for any promises
to marry her, that’s all bosh. I never made her
any promises,—been married myself twenty-five

ktrnctibie and water-proof sole.', wnicb lay before
ffim— not to be bulldozed, scared, and bled bv

by gait for breach of promise.
A reporter also called upon the lawyer who
for the purpose of getting from him whatever
imonnation he might wish to give touching the
pmmtifTs side of the case. Tim lawyer ex
pressed his regret at his inability to do so, ex
cusing himself on the ground ihat it would be
damaging to her interests to show up his ease at
ting stage of the game. The lady herself
was out of the city and amid not he
seen, it may be said, however, in a
general way, that she claims that Mr.
Goodrich dm make certain promises, general
and specific, to marry her, and that all charges
of attempting to blackmail or cxlort money

continued the examination. In answer to the
necessary interrogatories, ho gave the following
evidence: He wore a chip-straw hat on thedaj
ol tlie battle, and lost it in the bottom. He did
not lose his carbine in the bottom, and never
told any one he did; did not fire his pistol from
the top of tlie hill; he fired it at the Indians
while crossing the bottom, and had no charges
Mr. Gilbert asked the witness If it was coward
ice that prompted him to leave the timber and
go to the hill, and me witness replied emphatic
ally that-it was not He knew they could not
hold .that position in the bottom. He heard no
firing down the river but a few scattering shots;
he had then no idea that, there was a serious en
gagement and if did not occur to him that Gen.
Custer was in serious trouble or dead. Ue did
not know nor did anv one tell him tiiat Custer
was engaged with the Indians. He made up Ins
official report from inturmation obtained on me
field soon after Hie light, and he believed it was
nearly accurate. In regard to
ms sonnrETi-,
witness said he had some whisky tiiat he got at
the mouth of the Rosebud; it was in a llask,
which he carried in an inner coat-pocket, and
perhaps there was a pint or a quart; lie did not
drink any until the uigut of the 251 h, about mid
Mr. Gilbert asked witness if he was sober at
ail limes.
Witness replied that the flask was emptied on
the morning of the 2ith, when they were bury
ing the dead. Capt. French said that ho was
sick at tlie stomach, and desired a drink, and
witness gave it to him. Capt. Weir might have
taken a drink with him on the night of we 25th,
nut he did not remember of his sti‘doiug;if ho
bad it was to enable him to outain
some sleep, but it was not enough
to intoxicate him. Tlie night of tlie 35th, about
10 o’clock, be came upon two men skulking
about the pack train, and spoke to them. They
did not give him a satistactory answer, and he
struck one of litem, clunking it not a time fur
moral suasion, and he may have threatened to
shoot him if he found lain there again. Tlie
whisky was in his pocket at tiiat time. Ue was

loped past. He had not received any communi
cation Irom Girard, the scout, at the crossing
marked U A” on the map. On the night of the
25t0 he tried to communicate with Gen. Custer,
but the Crow iudian scouts refused to go. On
the morning of the 27th he sent a note to
Gen. Terry, stating his position and the crippled
condition his command was in. A copy of the
letter was read, and the witness said it con
tained his sentiments about that time. lie bad

Lieut. Lee asked the witness if he entered the
fight with feelings of
and witness said 4, Ycs, sir.” The questioner
asked for a prober answer, and the witness, after
asking the Court if it insisted on an answer, and
receiving an atiirmative reply, said he did not
go into that fight with feelings of distrust in
Custer; he had none but friendly feelings to
ward him, but be had no confidence in him as a
soldier; he had known him all through the War..
Witness said he supposed the Indians killed the
wounded meu who were left iu the timber.
There were a number of recruits iu the com
mand who could not mount their horses.
Orderly Daverin did not make any report to
him that he had lost his carbine; knew he did
not; it was not a lime that he could be bothered
t?Uh such reports. He was positive that he did
not' lire a revolver about the time Bentecu’s
command cameoip. The guidon was placed ou
too of tiie hill for the reason that he thought it
would attract attention sooner than anything
else would. Orderly Daveriu had carried his
flask, but did not have charge of it on the night
ofthe2stb. It was customary to refill a flask
if they had anything to refill it with. He wouid
have listened to any communication from Gi-
rard, but would not nave believed him. He un
derstood that Girard had been the basis of most
of the information against him. He was quite
os anxious to get Gen. Custer to aid him as the
latter was to get bis (Reno’s) aid. The results
of the battle bad justitied bim, he believed, in
acting as be bad, and be would pursue the same
course under similar circumstances. He found
it impossiolc to charge the enemy, and, in reply
to a question put by Lieut. Lee, said that
ten men could charge a thousand, but
their success was another thing. Witness gave
some further testimony in regard to his posi-
tioo during the fight, and said he thought there
were from COO to 900 Indians in his front during
the battle.
Mr. Gilbert said be would like to have the
testimony closed that day, and he had but little
more to offer.
The witness continued: He certainly entered
the fight with friendly feelings toward Gen.
Custer, and felt then that he had done all he
could to aid bim; he went “out of there” as
much to aid Custer as to have the latter aid
him. There was no communication to him from
any one in the timber that Custer could be seen.
He never thought at the time that the position
he bad taken would have to be explained to his
commanding officer; he then thought there
would be uo Question about it.
read a petition signed by the 236 surviving offi
cers and men of the Seventh Cavalry, addressed
to Gen. Sherman, requesting that the vacancies
caused by the death of Custer and the officers
of his command be filled from among the sur
vivors. Gen. Sherman’s reply—complimenting
the petitioners on the bravery of Maj, Reno ami
themselves, and informing them that the ap
pointing power was vested in the President ami
the Senate, and that promotions were mode on
the rule of seniority, and not on the battle-
field, as Napoleon had made them—was also
read and put iu as documentary testimony.
That dosed the evidence.
Mr, Gilbert said he had not been well for a
couple of days, and he would, therefore, n«-
quest the Court to adjourn, over until 11 o’clock
Monday rooming, in order that he might have
time to prepare his defense. The request was
granted, and the Court arose.

Pittsbuiig, Pa., Feb. B.— Fred Marlow and
Miss Lizzie Gochnow were married at East
Conemaugh yesterday by the Rev. L. M. Boyer,
of Johnstown. To*day r the young couple started
for Ashtabula, 0., where they propose to reside.
While eu route to the depot, accompanied by
several friends, the bridegroom was suddenly
confronted by a young lady named Abbie Lltz
ingcr, who wildly asked him if he was married.
Upon being answered in the affirmative, she ex
claimed in an excited tone of voice: a You are
mine! You arc* mine!” and grasped the
embarrassed bridegroom by the arm. He
pushed her from him and walked on,
when she turned to the Rev. Mr. Boyer,
who was of the party, and asked him if it was
really true that Fred was married. He answered
her kindly, telling her there was no doubt of it,
when she threw up her hands and shouted,
“ He’s mine, and death will be the penalty
Before the train departed she entered Mr. Cus
ter’s store and asked for the loan of a pistol,
saying that she wanted to kill Fred Marlow,
and that she would put au end to

The Strife Between the Candl
dates for Mayor.
Other City Offices—The Hopeless Penm
orats—Ward Meetings.
The biennial election of Mayor and city offi
cers, to be held within two months, is an event
of which the nubile is fully advised. The
-Mayoralty, of eourse, will be me chief bone of
contention. The fight for its nosscssion has
already begun, will be made at the primaries,
continued in the parly conventions, and con
cluded only when the ballots are counted and
the certificate of election issued. Of course
candidates arc numerous. The Republicans,
conscious of victory, propose to eo into the
light with candidates who will commend their
ticket to an almost universal support.
The Democrats realize that there
is a vast deal of difference between a nomina
tion and an election. Their experience In the
past justifies the conclusion said to be reached
by tlie wire-workers, that a man must be placed
in nomination who is without a record, or one
whose record Is beyond criticism. It is conceded
that this will be difficult to do; but it must be
done or inevitable defeat will follow. They
also are beginning to appreciate tlie lack of or
ganization, and the fnrliicr fact that unless they
become united they will be left, as thev Jiavo
been left before. Who the candidates will be
no one seems willing or prepared to decide.
>ot so, however, with tlie Republicans. They
are not numerous, hut composed of the best
men in the party. Tlie nomination of any of
those said to bo prominent would meet tlie
popular approval, and bo lollowed by his elec
MATon heath’s admi'nisteation
is generally considered as having proved a suc
cess. The taxpayers are said to he satisfied wilii
his financial policy’, and favorable to his re
election. He says he is not a candidate; don’t
want tlie olliee, and would decline tlie nomina
tion if tendered him. Tins may be tlie state of
the case, but such asseverations, when they
come from tlie ordinary politician, should be
taken with considerable allowance. At least so
say those who are used to the means politicians
employ in their own behalf. Tlie statement that
tlie present incumbent is not a candidate is
accompanied uy another statement that his
Irieuds are working with great zeal tor him. It
is said that rheir present plan (which is
being carried out) is to obtain an expression of
opinion from taxpayers favorable to ids nomina
tion. With a view lo this end, petitions are
now being circulated addressed to his Honor
and oraying tiiat he once more run for .Mayor.
These petitions, it is reported, will be sprung
during the current week, when Heath will yield
willing assent to their overtures, and once more
enter the lists. This, at all events, is said to be
the programme. The present week will doubt
less furnish evidence as to whether the
statements made are founded on
tact or a tissue of campaign exag
gerations. The persons who make these
assertions insist that they are true, but that the
taxpayers who will sign these petitions don’t
•• work tlie primaries.” Olliers say tiiat he will
be nominated in tlie Convention through tlie
division that will occur among the delegations
friendly to Uawieign and Gilbert. Still others as
sert that Gilbert is simply bidding for votes to
affect the result in favor of Hcatn, who will in
return aonohit Gilbert Commissioner of tlie
Board of Public Works. However tills may be,

has two citizens, both of whom are candidates,
backed by friends and working for success.
They are both well known, prominent socially
and commercially, and arc regarded as possess
ing ability and fitness for the ollicc. The*friends
of either insist that their candidate is the com
ing man, and can carry the Convention by a large
majority. A. M. Wright has been mentioned in
connection with the office ever since lust fall.
He was then solicited to enter the track lor
Congress against Col. Davis, but declined, hav
ing previously consented to run as the successor
of Heath. He, of course, has no hesitation in
announcing his candidacy, and is employing
his efforts to prevent being disappointed.
His friends are all working with a
determination that almost prophesies success,
and assert that they have gotten things down to
a point where they arc able to predict good re
sults. They say that ne will go into the Con
vention with a majority of votes from the First,
Second, Third, Fourth, Filth, Eighth, Ninth,
Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth, Thirteenth. Fif
teenth, Sixteenth, and Seventeenth Wards.
They concede the Sixth and Fourteenth Wards
to Gilbert ami Kuwlcfgh. but claim the Eight
eenth Ward for Wright as against Bawleigh.
Certainly if tins “ slate ” is correct his nomina
tion is a foregone conclusion. Should he be
elected, it is said, he will make a sweep of the
City-Hall, though he will not do so until the
situation is fully investigated. It is said be

office of Comptroller.

His friends claim that the Seventh, Ninth, Elev
enth, Twelfth, Thirteenth, and Seveuecnth
Wards are sure for him. He has iriends too in
the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Wards who, it is
claimed, will swell his majority and secure him
the nomination. This, too, with the First, Sev
enth, Eighth, and Tenth Wards as doubtful.
He is considered as a decidedly strong candi
date by the party of which he is the representa
tive, and, it is believed, will give his competi
tors in the race a “tough beat.” Should be
be elected he will also, it is reported,
make many changes about the City-Hall, ex
cepting, however, Mr. Fur/nee, who is his neigh
bor, and will baruly be disturbed.
Aid. Gilbert is the third prominent candidate
mentioned, but his opponents say that he is not
“desperately at work” to win, and occupies the
position of a candidate to be sought rather than
For the first time within the history of the
Democratic party candidates arc scarce. Indeed,
it is difficult to find one who is outspoken in his
determination to run the race which will be set
before whoever may conclude to accept the
nomination. The question to-day with the party
leaders is not to whom shall the honor be In
trusted, but who shall be the Moses that can
by any possibility lead them to victory. Ihose
who are possessed of wealth decline to invest in
what at best is a mere contingency. Those who
are willing to run arc said to be impecunious.

tion if tendered him, but no influences could
persuade him to seek it. In addition to these
there doubtless are a thousand and one dis

and accept defeat. Among those canvassed
more recently is T. T, Gurney, Supcr.isor of
West Chicago, Clinton Briar??, and others.

hopefully to tire Convention for consideration.

which also owns most of tnc stock not in the pos
session of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Com
pany. Mr. Julius Wadsworth, Vice-President of
he latter Company, says that after the failure of
the Glasgow Bank Mr. Mitchell no longer felt justi
fied in advancing money to pay the coupons with
out security, which the Chicago, .Milwaukee & Sc.
Paul was not willing to give unless joined by tlie
other chief stockholder.
TUe Western Umun probably never can be made
a profitable road, but in the year of us largest net
earning It made a proDtof about 33,020 per mile,
and it lias avemaed nearly $1,500 per mile for live
years past, it seems then that it is able to meet
the interest on its current funded debt, and that if
the floating debt can be retired the way may be
smooth before it. What ibis floating debt
may be is not yet announced. If there
is a foreclosure, probably most of it
will be destroyed: but in other hands the road very
likely would not bo so pro.iubie as it is now. It
does not bring much truflic to the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul; at ieo#t, most of tlfc truflic
that it brings is carried but a short distance on the
latter road, but it cun do it some harm, and the
Uhicaso, Milwaukee & St. Paul can do it a great
deal of harm. Tho delimit is unfortunate for the
Glasgow Bank stockholders, font will inevitably
lessen the amount that cau be realized from the
bonds which it bolds, and which it needs to dis
pose of at an early day. They seemed a month
ago a perfectly good security; now, though all
that stands between them and regular payments
hereafter may not amount to more than three or
four coupons, their reputation has oeen so injured
that they will not for a long time bring their old
price. The stock never was worth anything worth
mentioning,— at least that part owned’ny the Glas
gow Hunk was not. The Chicago, Milwaukee &
SC Paul’s holding has doubtless ucen worth some
thing to it, as enabling it to control the Western
Union Koad. But the prospect of earning a divi
dend has always been very slim.
The Illinois Central, Chicago & Northwest

freight tariff to the Black Hills, Montana, and
Idaho, via Sioux City and Yankton. For Black-

70 cents per 100 pounds; gunpowder, less than

There was no change in the situation as re
gards the wars between the various roads load
ing to the East and to the Southwest. The
General Freight Agents of the roads leading
East held a meeting yesterday morning at the
Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago freight
ollice to take some united action re
garding East-bound freights. Besides calling
each other liars and other pet names nothing
was accomplished. Each road is now talcing
business at the best rates it can get. The East
bound’passenger business remains in statu quo,
and the various roads continue to sell tickets to
New York for sl7. It is more than probable,
however, that a still further reduction will be
made at an early day.
The war in rates to Colorado points is getting
fiercer every hour, and tickets to Denver were
sold yesterday by some of the roads at SG less
than the regular tariff rates. This matter will
come up lor consideration at the meeting of
Western .Managers at the Grand Pacific Ilotel
Wednesday, when an effort will be made to
stop Hie fight before ft assumes too large pro
portions. It this trouble cannot be checked it
will be useless for the managers to re-euaet the
pass agreement, as it could not possibly he
maintained while a war of this kind is going on.

Special Dt.walcTi to The Tribune.
SrniKGi-iELD, IU., Feb. B.—Tlie opportunity
to Dave a good time at the expense ot the State
is so seldom presented that, notwithstanding
the general condemnation by resolution and the
public press, the Legislative Committees are
actively completing their arrangements for a
general junketing trin nest week. Still, there
is much profanity indulged in by the fellows
who expect to make this long and
useless spree because they have,, been
so mercilessly exposed in The Tribune. From
the Senate twenty-three members and from the
House thirty-live members go. The result will
probably he no working quorum in cither branch
next week. While the report is now being cir
culated that the trip will be made at individual
expense, it is only a blind, for the State, besides
Buttering the expense attending the absense of
these junketers,'will bo called on to pay all the
bills at last.
Three committees from each House—those on
State Institutions, on Public Buildings and
Grounds, and on Public Charities—will partici
pate in this trip. They will start at 7 on Monday
morning in t» o Pullman cars now here. They
will spend Monday at Normal; Tuesday morn

Additional Anti-Polygamy Legislation Re-
Sai.t Lake, Utah, Feb. S.— At a mootin'; of
the Anti-Polygamy Society to-day, the follow
ing memorial to Congress was adopted:
While Delegate Cannon and the representa
tives of the Mormon Church arc petitioning for
amnesty and promising obedience for their
people to the Anti-Polygamy law, the expres
sions and actions of the Mormons in Utah give
no evidence that this promise will be fulfilled.
Apostle John Taylor, President of the
Mormon Church, declares that the revelations
enjoining polygamy come direct from God,
that it is His religion, and neither Congress nor
the Supreme Court had the right to interfere,
and that tile Supreme Court decision would
have no effect except to unite, confirm, and
strengthen the Mormons in their faith. This
same Taylor, when in France in 1553, he having
then five wives, denied the existence of polyg
arav among the -Mormons, and had the
denial published in pamphlet form ■in
French, and circulated. It is a matter
of common notoriety that the Mormons
are contracting unlawful marriages the same as
ever, —that John W. Young has married his
fifth wife, James Welch his second wife, and
John White his third wife since the decision was
The lla.net aVeics, the Mormon Church organ,
declares that the decision of the Supreme Court
was rendered under popular pressure by feebio
ivittcd and eioudy-minded Judges; and
in the ward meeting-houses violent
diatribes were uttered against the
Judges and judgment of the Court; there
fore, we respectfully ask Congress during
tlie present session to amend the act of ISO 3 so
that it may become operative by making the
general reputation of tiie conjugal relation
proof of marriage, and the living toge her in
polygamy to constitute the offense. ' Unless the
prosecuting officer of the Government is, enabled
by some such legislation to prosecute and pun
ish offenders, no regard will be paid to tbe

Morris, 111., Feb. S—Mr. J. Lester, Jr., of
Ottawa, some time since challenged any one in
Morris for a walking match. Mr. Frederick
Walther, a tailor of this city, accepted the chal
lenge for a fifty-mile walk for 550 a side. They
commenced at 2p. m. to-day. At his twentv
seventh mile the Ottawa man (Lester) gave out
while Walther appeared fresh, lie made his
thirty-first mile in eight minutes. Walther con
tinued walking without leaving the track until
he finished the fifty miles, which he did in nine
hours and fifty-two minutes. This is the first
of the walking fever in Morris.
There has been no investment made by bankers
of late years that meets with more popular indorse
ment than the safety-deposit vaults. Since the
Merchants' National Bank have taken possession
of the old State Savings vaults, the community
having confidence in this old and solid institution,
the Merchants' National, have given it a strong
support. Their vaults, built by the greatest safe
manufacturers of the country, —the Diebold Safe-
Deposit Company, —are deemed impregnable, and
the stannch integrity of the bank officials and the
managers of this department gives the great
est assurance of safe management of
affairs inside, and now St. Paul, profiting
by this and other examples, has decided
to have a similar institution. The German-Amer
ican Bank of St. Paul, of which Mr. F. Wiliins is
President, has just contracted with John W. Nor
ris, Vice-President of the Diebold Safe Company
(under whose supervision the .Merchants’ National
vaults were erected), for n safe-deoosit vault which
wiil weigh about 80,000 pounds, with capacity for
about 9,000 safe-depositors, costing SI O', 000.
This tvork wiil be of the latest and best construc
tion, and wiil have all the elements of strength or
the older and more pretentions vaults. The Ger
man-American Bank is one of the most conserva
tive banks in the country, but their increasing
business compels them to build a new and elegant,
as well as more commodious, bang building, into
which the safety-deposit vaults will be placed. We
