HOW TO BANK ON NOTHING.
That Is If I'm Oaljr Have tbe Brqaislte
Mural Uaaltueatioa.
It took Lxauiiuer Ilayden about an honr
to count the mojey, aud then he certified
tbat tbe capital was intact and tbe bank
ready for business. I'uulsnn in the mean
time had been sitting holding tbe pack
age of commercial paper given him by
Jeruberg. He did not want it. does not
know today what it mas worth, if
anything; did not ex. mine any ot the pa

funds of the bank or which be was presi

srbicb be sold tbe charter, for bi. private
gain, on security b. did not take the
trouble to acrutiuixe.
A. uon as the bank examiner's work
was done tbe party returned to the city.
First, however. latilsoo got bis r
back I rum Jeruberg and gave tbe latter
tbe bundie of commercial paper. Then
Adania and CriCiu put their eWGO back
in tbelr pockets, and when they got down
town returned it to various institution
from which they bad temporarily borrowed
It. Tbe next day tbe bank opened for
business with (ICD.lM) of paper in IU

Nordgrcn, la tne early sprini; of lwe, naa
orsaoiied a eonipany known a the Belt
City Improvement aaaociation. Thi asao
ciatioa bad obtained control of a tract of

U0, for which thrv cave their nronilKsorr
notes. These notes, by the way, have never
li-eu paid.
As soon as this pnrchaso had been ef
fected the association fanned Vinds to the
amonut of &50,0U0npon the lauds and gave
trust deed to seen re tbe bonds, thus mak
ing an aggregate incumbrance apon tb.
binds ot eoST.OSa. But not satisfied with
this, the association then issued stock to
the amount of T5O.C0O. which was divided
among its members. Here was the crea
tion of securities to the amount of fl.OuO,
WO on property that bad not cost these
men a dollar, and in which their interest
was only fXlfiM.
Then Xordgren auj his associate got
control of the South Side State bank. In
July, wheunbe auditor of public accounts
came around to examine the bank's condi
tion, he found among iu atet three notes
for 10,000 each, mat'.s by Tyden, Chester
and K lander. He didn't like that kind of
security, and tol.l the bank officers that it
must be teplaced by better. The bank
officers at once said they would replace it
by stock of tbe licit City Improvement
association, which, they told the auditor,
seas of great value, and tbe auditor con
tenting the transfer was made, Tyden
Chester and lirlander taking tne:r notes
out and pnttiug in the worthless stock as
tecurity for the money obtained.
The operations cf Xordgren ani his
associates did not atop here, however. As
before said, there 'was about iTi.SOOof gsod
commercial paper in tiio bank. This was
removed and Helt City stock put in its
place, tbe stock having a commercial vslu.
possibly of half acvutaponnd. By Ibis
time tbe bank was pretty well gntted. al
though there still rt maiucd a little paper
that was good, but rot at onj negotiable

NORTH DAKOTA "iN A HOLE."

Fauio, X. D., Dec. 13 Sam: time ago
Judge McCouuell granted an alternative
writ of mnndaaas directed to Art bur W.
Porter, the state auditor, requiring him to
show cause why, he had not issued his
warrants in payment of certain claims of
the agricultural college. The answer of
the state auditor shows that the state will
have to trim its sniis very carefully. There
is uow uo money in the general fund of
the state nod more money has been ap
propriated thau will he received for iwo
years. Th; constitutional debt limit is
also oven ua.
Hi re is no fuud iu the treasury to meet
the expenses of convening tbe legislature
to modify or reienl auy of tbe appropria
tions made, and when tbe 1st day of July
next has lieeu reached it the debt ot the
state shall not huve I "eon reduced below
iu fixed limit of tJOO.ODO additional since
statehood then all claims outstanding
that shall have accrued under the annual
appropriation laws will faU as nullities.
Tbe auditor asks the court for advice as
to what he can do to uphold the credit of
the state.

Kites. '
Bcffalo. Dss. .15. -The Arcade block,
which has stood for more than thirty year
a landmark in the very heart o tbe city,
was entirely destroyed by fire. The fire
also swept away the Verxa building,
which stood on the south of the Arcade,
and did iu work so rapidly and complete
ly that very little of the valuable con
tents ot the buildings were saved. The
lost is estimated at not short of tS00,0C3.
Buffalo has not seen in many years such
a furious blaxe, and It is doubtful if there
is here another structure that seemed so
well adapted to withstand flames as ths
old Arcade. People hal come to lock
upon it as thoroughly Cre-proof. but noth
ing remains now but a smoking pile of
ruin, as the big block burned like tinder,
and at one time the flames threatened a
large section of the business portion ot the
city.
Flames Soon Beyond Control.
Before the fire department had re
sponded to the alarm it was seen that the
tl nines Lad got beyond control. In the
Arcade were W. S. Robinsou's mnsee.
Shea's music hall and a large number of
stores and offices. It extended from
S00 Main street about 23 feet, running
through to Washington street. It was
protected on one sids by the fire wall of
the buiidiug occupied by J. X. Adam ic
Co.'s big dry goods store, and the firemen,
aided by this, managed to aUy the pro
gress of the' flames. Had this not been
done tbe entire block bounded by Main,
Washington, Eagle and Clinton streets
would undoubtedly been destroyed. The
owners of tbe Arcade block were Public
Works Commissioner James Mooney, of
this city: James Brisbane, of Xew York,
and tbe latter', mother, Mrs. George Bris
bane, of Uatavia, X. Y.
Losses Figure Up a Big 6nas.
The Yerx.i building was owned by
George 11. Mathews, a well known miller
of this city, and was occupied by Faxon,
Williams Ac Faxon, grocers, who came
here from Boston several years ago and
established the finest grocery house in
Buffalo, succeeding F. X. Yerxa :u that
building. The Yerxa was five stories; the
Arcade was a four-story brick building
and was valued at f-'lij.OW. Tbe insur
ance is aliout fSJ.oW. l'he Yerxa building
was worth el"o,iitiO and the insurance was
ulioat 3'i,(X.U Faxon, Williams & Fax
on's stock was valued at J1W0.00U and was
insured tor trsy.OiiO. Mr. Robinson's loss
on tbe M usee theater is about (100,000.
Shea and Etwrbardt, tbe owners of the
music ball, suffer a loss of idO.OOO; little
insurance. T. C. Tuuke, jeweler, loses
about tO J.00U with scarcely a third insur
ance. Otto Vlbrlcht lost about 650,000,
lusurauce f3,000.
Other Mores Wiped Oat.
On both tbe Maiu and Washington
street sides of the building there was a
number of stores of various kinds which
were completely wiped out. In less than
four hours the fire had spent its fury. J
.iAi,si- ui iuirw nut iau reuiamea in the
building during tbe night claim to have
beard the exp'oiou by which it is supposed
the fire was originated. Everything about
the buiidiug wai of tbe most infiamable
nature. So far ns cnu be lenrned no one
was seriously injme;!. although many of
tbe firemen bad narrow escapes during the
four hours tbe lira raged most fiercely.
Both police and Gremeu when they first
arrived upon tbesceue luadeatonrtbrougb
the Arcade as far as tbe flumes would per
mit them, owing to tbeexc'.tiag rnmor
that some jieople within were iu danger of
being burned to death.
VOORHEES BILL ON FINANCE.

Washington, Dec 15. In addition to
the scheme for coinage of 34,000,000 lC-to-1
silver dollars a year contained in Voor
bees' fiuuoce bill it provides fur tbe retire
ment of paper currency ot less denomina
tion than 10, for tbe retirement of all gold
roius of less denomination than tlO, and
for the appointment of an international
commission. The bill is not received with
any great degree of favor by either the
silver advocates or their oppoueuts. In
regard to tbe iuference in some quarters
that tbe administration favored the bill
Voorbee said: "My bill is not tbe result
of one word of consultation, and 1 certainly
tio not claim to represent tbe administra
tion in introducing iu I do desire, how
ever, to help the treasury out of iu de
ficiency." More Trouble for Vhaeher.
