BANKS' LOSS HEAVY. lair Haven and Poult ney Institution in Hughe FailureAlleged Crookedness. Rutland, Aug. 4. Each day new and startling developments are coming out in the recent failure of Geu. W. II. 'Hughes, the promihent'pcilitician, financier and slate manufacturer, of Granville, N. Y. Prom present appearances, it may be judged that a large number of banks and private individuals will be hetvy losers as a re sult of the failure. It is stated ' on good authority that the approximate losses of the various banks are as follows: At Glens Palls arid Sandy Hill, $2tS,0W; Farmers' National Bank of Granville. $;0,000; banks of Poultney aud Fair Ha ven, unknown, but presumably, larcre amounts. A number of Granville people will also lose heavily. Some pretty damaging statements are now being made which allege crookedness on Hughes part. One case Is reported where a New York man who visited Gran ville once or twice has been notified by a bank that his name was on Hughes note for $-,000 as indorser. This man states he had no acquaintance with Hughes and never signed any of his papers. Another Granville party, so it is said, finds he has" Indorsed for $5,!j00 on Hughes notes, whereas he supposed it was only a $1,500 note. When lie supposed he was signing a renewal of the same note, each one was a new note. A Granville widow paid Hughes about 1,500 due on a mortgage on her house, and it turns up in the hands of a Salem bank. The whereabouts of Mr. Hughes are still unknown, and a great many people besides those mentioned would like to lo cate him. SHA.VhOCK III. AS SHE APPEARS GROUNDS LAID OUT.

Took What Liquor They Wanted, and Escaped, Burglars broke into Charles Zanleoni'a wholesale liquor store on Granite street last night, made away with a considerable amount of liquid refreshments, smashed bottles and fixtures, broke the plate glass window in tbe front of the building and tried to add incendiarism to their other misdeeds by starting a small tire among some papers on the iloor. That the build ing did not burn is remarkable. The first intimation that burglars had been In the place was had this morning at about 5 o'clock wheu Arthur Thompson, an employee, went to the stables to feed the horses. lie saw a window was broken and notified Mr. Zanleoni that some one had broken Into the place. The thieves gained an entrance through a rear window, by breaking out a sash. A box was set up next the building under the window aud easy access was secured. The Invaders pulled down all the shades in the front otlice, lighted additional gas jets and proceeded to make themselves at home. As fast as a bottle was emptied, it was broken over some of the fixtures and glass was scattered over all the floor in this way. lias jets were pulled out and the lamps broken. The invaders also shot bullets through the VAte glass win dow in the front of the store breaking that. In oue instance where a ens jet was broken otf.the gas was lighted at the break and it was left burning ail night in that way. In one corner bnnch of papers had been piled, soaked with kerosene and then lighted, but for some unexplained reason. the paper burned out without setting lire to the building. The invaders evidently satisfied their thirst while in the building and then pro ceeded to carry away what they could. Just how. much was taken Mr. Zanleonl has no means of knowing. They evidently took out of the window more than they could carry away, for a half a dozen bot tles of Jones' ale was found on the ground just outside the buiklliig. Since the arrest of a man on the prem ises a few weeks azo for breaking and en tering, two dogs have been kept in the building, but they did not keep the Invad ers out. One, o; iy a six-months' old imp, was a very much feightened dog when the . place was opened up this morning. The employes ot the place gathere d up a barrel of bottles, when they cleaned up. At least one invader grew careless, lor he left a gray plaid cap behind. On the Inside were pinned several fish hooks. This was the only clue the invaders left. Although some people ascribe the break to the visiting soldiers, the police do not believe they had anything to do with it. HAD LIQUOR TESTED. Montpelier Man's Stock Found to f e Sat Ufaetorr.
