Dull trade, slow collections and the pressure of creditors fur their claims were the causes of the failure of a wholesale grocery firm yesterday morning. The firm was Arand, Schuermeyer & Heyker, doing busi ness at the southwest corner of Second and Main streets. The individual members of the firm were Frank Arand, HeniTf Schuermeyer, Matthew Heykur and Valentine J. Eien. Some years ago they bought out the old firm of 11. G. S-tahl & Co., which had done business in this city for years and successfully. The concern which failed yesterday had been doing a fair business during some years past, but the depression in business affected It, and the members of the firm did not have the capital sufficient to carry them over to a time when business would be better. Their collections were slow, and they could not on that account meet tbe obligations to their creditors, which were I being prcsed for payment. There was nothing left ror tnem to oo but assign, and that they did, to T. A. liruhL the attorney. Their assets were given aa f30.n), and the liabilities about the same.
