Charge Mafle to Controller of Currency
Regarding Cambridge Rational
Washington, D. C, March 12, Na
tional Bank Examiner Samuel M. Ihum
of Baltimore, who vas sent by the em
i oiler of the currency, to take charge
of the affairs of the National City
hank of Cambridge, after the suspen
sion of Bank Examiner Ellis S. Pepper,
will come to Washington Monday to
make a verbal report to the controller
on the condition of things as he lias
found them up to the present time and
al-so to tell the controller whether Cole
man's defalcation could not have been
discovered sooner if Pepper's examina
tions had been more thorough and Cobs-
man ' snperiors had exercised greater
While there is no desire to prejudice
anyone in advance of a thorough knowl
edge of all the facts, It is clearly the
belief of officials in the office of the
controller that the defalcation would
not. have occurred if the bank officers
had been as diligent as the law requires
them, or if Pepper's examinations had
been rnnre searching.
Controller Murray yesterday received
a letier from Examiner flam, who- i
out spoken in his condemnation of the
lax conduct of the otlicers of the bank.
Coleman's defalcation he terms "pal
pable and hiring," and he sava it could
never have been hidden if the ollicials
of the bunk had followed the int-true-tion
of the controller relating to the
conduct and duties of bank oliicers, and
ordinary diligence had been used.
lie makes it plain that be is clearly
of the opinion that the officers did not
d- their proper duty. Less is said in
recard to Pepper, although the impres
sion also prevails that had Pepper kept
closer watch of the bank. Coleman's
defalcation would have been discovered
No action will be taken ine retrard to

Searchers for It, '
Editor Barre Daily Times: f hart
just read the item in to-night's paper
about the Halley comet. I have seen it
a few times with my 2'a-inch telescope.
As a help to any who may try to looata
it, let me say, the piunet Saturn is bow
the most conspicuous object of the west,
em sky in the evening, near where tha
more brilliant Venus was about a month
ago. The comet is a little below and to
the right, i. e.. northwest from the plan
et. I doubt if many would b able tr
see it with an opera glass; it is very
obscure, even yet
Very truly yours,
