The most sensational hank suspen
ston ainco the panic of 1907 is that of
the Northern Bank of New York. with
nine braiiches iu Maiihattan and the
Bronx, which, as was stated in the G*
tetle, was closed yrsteniin. Tlie bank
is a consolidation of the old Northern
National Bflnk, the Hainilton Bank
and the Riverside Bank, all of which
were crippled in lt>07. The closing is
ihe resuil of the financial oper.itiona of
Joseph G. Robin, a 35-year-old wizard
of tinaiiee, who effected tlie <<>nsolida

the doors they wept.
The greatest excitenient atterding

Pott Morris branch, at 41_ east One

the Bronx. Just before 10 o'eloek
Joseph Wormser, of 235 Willis avenue,
who controls a string of butcher stores
in the annexed district, appeared at the

to gain adinittauce. He was greatly

NEGRO LOCKED IS A MAFE.
A large mob was bcsieging the Wes
ton, W. Va., raiiway station last night
to provent sheriffs from rcmoving
William Furby, coiored, to the prison
at Clarksburg. State troops are report?
ed on their way from Clarksburg by
special train to provent a lynching.
At Furby's trial, yesterday forenoon,
Flora Anelin, a farmer's daughter,
declared she was the victira of three
criminal attacks at his hands.
At 7:lo the mob burst open tlie
door of the express room, wbere ihe
sheriffs and their prisoner bad locked
themselvea in. All tbe window lights
were broken and the mob demanded
the ncgro's life. But the latter was
pushed into the concealed vault of tbe
express company for safe keeping,
where he had hardly a breatb of air.
An apeal to Governor Glasscock, at
Cbarleston, for state troops was follow?
ed itmnediately by an order for the
inobilization of the militia at Clarks
burg, Grafton and Farkcrsburg and
there dispateh her by special train.
Until the arrival of the militia it was
necessary to- eonliue tho negro to tbe
airless vault. Although tbat might
mean death to him from suffocation it
was considered a greater peril to re?
lease him while the mob's frenzy was
at sucb a height.
After the negro's trial yesterday
afternoon be was held for the grand
jury, without bail. to answer to the
charge of assault and attempt to mur?
der. Tbe Anglin girl took the stand
herself after all other witnesses and
spectators were exeluded from the
courtroom and told how Furby attacked
her while sbe was returning from the
dairy on her father's farm last Satur?
day night. While she struggled be
dragged hor 300 yards, and, followiug
tlie attacks, he was in the act of mur
denng ber by strangulation, when a
railroad flagman came runoing to her
rescue The negro ran to a borse tied
