The Citiseme' bank and Hope & Co.
IN. O. City Item.]
The Item has had a view of the na.
torial agreement between Hope & Co.,
of Holland, and the Citisena' Bank, by
which the former undertook to release
the latter,so far as it was in their power
to do so, of all liability as endorser of
certain State bonds issued for the sole
*benefit of the beak, soln by it, and the
money employed for more than fifty
years in its businese. The consideration
for this release of the endorser was the
surrender by the bank to the "party of
the second part" of the mortgage se.
aritly held by it, and which it was
made the duty of the Citisens' Bank by
the terms of the original compact, to
collect of the mortgages and apply the
proceeds to the extinguishment of the
interest and principal of the bonds, and
thus hold the State harmleses. In 1880,
as The Item showed the other day, the
State passed an act authorizing the
bank to compromise with the mortgage
debtors without fixing any limit to the
terms of settlement. Thsle act seems to
have been construed very liberally in
its own favor by the bank, and it at
once look steps to release from its en
dorsement on the bonds by giving its
promlse to proceed with collections as
fast as possible, and banp over the pro
eetds to the Holland bondholders, The
hisletory of this transaction may be
learned by examining the summary of
the bargain of 1881 :
Annexed to an act of deposit passed
before Edward Grima, Notary Public,
on the 27th day of April, 1881, is a
document entitled: '.Articias of agree
sent between the Citizens' lank of
Louisiana and all and each of the
owners and holders of any of the bonds
of the Slate of Louisiana which were
originally slasued under an act appro
ved 80th of January, 1838."
In this agreement It is recited that
the partles of the second part, which
were represented by Hope & Go,, of
Amsterdam, are the creditors of the
State of Louisiana and the Citiseas'
Bank. Act 79 of 1880, is recited io
'"And further, It is agreed between
the partles that the obligations out
standing are as follows:

lstock depar:ment. The severasee of
mortgage and banking departmente,
nla persmaamce of act 248, approved
April 38, 1)8S, is approved andrattfled,
and the represenatatives of the bond
bolders agree that the bondholders
shball never sue nor seek to recover any
otber sum from the bank aforesaid on
Its eadorsement or on account of the
bonds than bshall be realised from the
mortgage stock department, and tbe
"Never to make any claim or de
mrend on the mortgage stock depart
ment or its assets for payment of said'
bonde except for amount realized from
the legal and proper liquidation of the I
mortgage stock department, under the
terms of agreement.,
"But these presents are not to be 1
Construed as impairing the claims .f I
the parties of the second part upon the
bonds against the State, whlet clitms
are maintained in all their integrity as
it this agreement had not been made."
This document was signed at New
Orleans by E. L. Carriere, Nov. 5,
1880, and at -Amsterdam by Hope &
Co., Oct. 8, 1880.
There is little comfort for Louisiana
in this exhibit. A debt of less than four
millions anJ a half has been allowed to
accumulate more than half its amount
in Interest up to eight years ago, sirne
which time we have no exact statement.
It is evident that the bondholders were
willing, in consideratin" ! p .n.,sed
activity by the bank in m.rur. t" ,thec.
Lions from mortgage debtors and apply
Ing the proceeds exclusively to the
redemption of the coupons and exten
ded warrants, to agree not to sue the
bank nor seek to collect from it any
farther sums than might be realized
from such collections. That Is to say,
the creditors accepted all the seizable
assets of the endorser in lieu of their
claim on it, and intimated their inten
tion to look to the principal toithe
State-for the remainder. For, though
the bank is the real debtor, the papers
were so drawn as to make the State
A correspondent of The Item, in
viewing the equities of the case, cil
dentally stated that the bank was the
principal obligor, while another 'stand
Ing on the bond,' corrects him and says
the State is.
Both correspondents were quite
right from their respective stand
points. The bank ought to pay the
whole amount, principal and Interest.
If It fails or refuses to do so, then the
State will be expected to make good
its promises and fall back upon such
recourse as a demand on the bank will
afford. Though Messrs. Hope & Co.
have agreed on certain conditions to
release the bank in both of its depart.
ments from all liability, yet it does
not appear that the State has abated
abny claim it may have on that Institu
tion. It is hardly likely that enough
will ever be collected on compromises
with the mortgage debtors to discharge
the Immense load of Interest. And as
both the bolder and the indorser seem
to be agreed that the yliability of the
bank is limited to this sole item of the
assets, the State may prepare itself
sooner or later, to consider a demand
upon it for payment or a renewal on
terms satisfactory to the holders. We
understand that the bonds are of dif.
ferent dates, and have been renewed
from time to time for twenty-five
years beyond maturity. They cannot
be pressed for collection till they are
due, nor presented for funding so long
as current interest is provided for.
Some of these conditions, it will be
seen, are dependent upon the result
of the efforts of the mortgage depart
ment to make collections. In any
event, either the creditors stand to
leose their principal and a good deal of
their Interest, or the State must come
to the rescue and look to the bank for
reimbursement. And herein the con
stitutional limitation upon the State
debt will have an important bearing.

THE ARREST OF REV. MR. TERDEL.
Policeman Hlaayne Makes a Statement.
Editor Telegraph;: Please d., me the
favor to pubalsh what 1 can prove to
be the facts in regard to the arrest
madte Nov. 'lat. ult.
The express agent demanded that the
arreor be made. There are several
partlies. who will testify that no person
was drunk or used prorane language at
any time during the arrest or after
wards. That the party arrested was
repeatedly assured that he would not
be harmed ana that no one would te
allowed to insult or heap anry indigani
ties upon him. When approached he
placed his hand in his pocket and as a
rn:a~,er of precaution was requested to
take it out. I did not handcuff him
and responsible parties will testify Inat
he was not handcuffed at any time.
His trunk would weigh about one
hundred pounds and was tied with
three-eighth cotton line and he had
two valises, one small, one large, His
keys were given back to him before
leaving his presence as the hour was
too late to examine Ils baggage. He
claimed to be a mason and one was
immediately sent for, who on account
of having no one to attend to his
business could not come to tie party,
when at his own reguest he was con
ducted to Mr. Kline's where he object
ed to enter on account of the building
having a saloon in it; but as it was
too late to find another mason on the
streets he requested to be allowed to
go in and did not stay in the house
longer than ten minutes, leaving as
soon as he was ready to go. He was
