STREET PAVING WORK DELAYED On account of a delay in the ship ment of some valves to be used with the iron pipe which will be laid in the place of wooden water mains in the business district, work on the paving of Street Improvement District No. 1 has been tied up all this week. Trenches in which to lay the new pipe have been cut and the streets are bad ly torn up, and no definite informa tion has been received as to when the special fittings will arrive here, al though the factory' has written that they have been shipped. In order to avoid cutting off the water supply from the business district for several days the old pipe will not be removed until after the new iron pipe has been laid and connected, and it is possible that the old mains will be left in the ground, as the cost of excavating and removing them would, it is thought, be fully as much as the value of the Pipe The board of improvement this morning received the lithographed bonds to be issued by’ the district and are holding a meeting this afternoon for the purpose of signing them. When signed the bonds will be paid for and the proceeds placed in the hands of the district's treasurer, Opie Hartje.

Piercey & Son STATE NATIONAL BANK SOLVENT DEPOSITORS TO BE PAID i BALANCE LEFT FOR STOCK ! HOLDERS, SAYS WASHING TON REPORT. Local stockholders of the State National Bank of Little Rock which closed its doors June 19, were pleased to learn from a report from the Tres ury Department at Washington pub lished today that the institution has been found to be solvent and no re ceiver will be named. The depositors, it is understood, will be paid in full and there will be a balance left for the stockholders. Hendrix College, the i largest local stockholder in the bank, owns stock amounting to $10,000, and it was feared when the closing was first announced that the college would not only lose this amount but would be called upon to pay an assessment of an equal amount in order that the depositors might be paid. Among other Conway stockholders are At torney J. C. Clark and his daughter, Miss Bessie Clark. A dispatch from Washington says the Treasury Department now' is con sidering offers made by several banks to take over the institution for pur poses of liquidation. Among the Lit tle Rock banks said to have submitted some sort of a preposition to effect the liquidation are the W. B. Worthen Company and the new Bankers' Trust Company. Other local banks also are said to have made offers. The report of National Bank Ex aminer W. W. Smith, who has been in charge of the bank since it closed its doors, was to the effect that it will not be necessary to name a receiver for the bank, as he has found it sol vent. The capital is impaired, he stated, but the announcement from Washington last night did not indi cate at what figure, if any, the ex aminer's report fixed the loss to the stockholders. Two avenues of liquidation, bankers in Little Rock said last night, are open. One would be to turn the bank back to the stockholders to select a liquidating agent and the other, gen erally considered the preferable ac tion, would be to accept the offer of another bank to take over the institu tion to effect a liquidation. The announcement in Washington that the Treasury Department is con sidering offers made by several banks to take over the institution indicates that whatever step is to be taken it will be subject to the approval or with the consent of Comptroller of the Currency John Skelton Williams. Cashier H. M. Johnson of the State National bank and J. F. McIntyre, one of the bank’s directors, were in con ference with Treasury Department of ficials for several hours yesterday aft ernoon. They left for Little Rock late yesterday. I Offers to take over the closed bank are considered as confidential busi ness, and are not disclosed by either the Treasury Department or the banks making the offers. The Treasury' Department's an nouncement, based on Lxaminer Smith’s report of his investigations, indicates that in the examiner’s opin ion the bank will not only pay the de positors in full, but also will return some amount to the stockholders. The assets of the bank, if collected without loss, would pay all depositors and leave a balance estimated at be tween $200,000 and 300,000 for the stockholders. TO MOVE OFFICE. Little Rock, June 26.—The first of the offices at the state capitol to move into permanent quarters will be the Land Office, which will move in a few days into its office on the ground floor.
