and the banking house of J. S. ana

forced into the hands of receivers to­
day, through the failure of the first
named institution to open its doors
this morning. The closing of the
First-Second National bank was or­
dered by Deputy Comptroller of Cur­

been made to meet the government's
requirements regarding their degal
