to continue in the li Id and bid for lo
cal business. The directors were call
ed together to discuss the oullook
and the plans for the future, with a
view either of closing up alTairs vol
untarily or continuing in a modest
way while the public recovered from
the shock f the Warr crash of last
fall. The sentiment was general that
there was nothing to gain by dissolv
ing the corporation and nothing to
lose by continuing in a piiet way, and
for this reason it vas decided to pro
ceed along the conservative policy
that has been maintained since the
Warr failure. The association lias
some $.'.on in loans, for which "o
shares have been issued. The large
list of directors comprises to a con
siderable extent the stockholders of
the association, ami they are united in
favor of continuing. It is felt that

of building and loan business and a
public appreciation of the careful
