Scott people In touch with the bank have been aware for sonie time that the institution was in harti straits, it was only in the last day or two b^at the depositors became alarmed. Yesterday there waa a run on the bank when between $55,000 and $60,000 was withdrawn. This morning when the citizens went down town, they saw a notice, signed by Mr. Korandy, posted on the door which stated In substance that the nm waa precipitated by the circulation nf malicious reports to the effect the bank was insecure. However, The Reg Ister was informed by telephont? that the failure was due to a depreciation in the securities of the bank. The message further stated, as does the dispatch above, that the depositors will be paid in full. .Mr. Homady ha.s been making a gallant fight in the past few weeks to keep the bank alwve water, raising on his personal credit $60,000 to tide the institution over the crisis, but in this he failed when the run was made yesterday. Today Mr. Hornady pledged his property to secure the depositors in case It was needed. Mr. Homady is one of th*- wealthiest men in Pt. Scott, being interested in a number of the largest Institutions there. He has been interested in many enterprises for the good of his town and his many friends here regret to iiear of ills misfortune. Mr. Bradley, state bank examiner, is now on his way to Ft. Scott to take charge of the bank. The failure of .the bank will no doubt excite much comment over the state as Mr. Hornady was well known not oi»ly as a banker and business man but as a politician. He was can didate for the nomination of governor last rear on the Republican ticket, wit? . ...,ing, finally, in favor of W. J. bailey. The First National Bank of Fort Scott was one of the oldest in the state \ and Mr. Homady had owned- a controlling Interest in it for the past fifteen years. It was capitalized' at 1100.000. The bank was organized in 1870. The officers at the present time are: Gmnd Homaday. presldont: F. A. H«ir naday. cashlpr; Chas. l>ove. vice president. A crowd of depositors gnfherert about the bank this morning but made no demonstrailnn. President Horn.i day is a prominent politician and Iins large huslnesa interests hero. SECRETARY STARKEY TO TALK. In there are walks on the south side of this street, but the petitioners ask ihat walks be laid where there are houe now. The petition was referred jio the street and alley committee. The council last night granted a petition ssking that the sidewalk In the nine hundred block on South Walnut street lie moved out to the curl) line to conform with the walk line. I'etiilons asking for the vacation of two alleys were also presented. They were both referred to the jMiblic Im- lirovenient committee. The first aak- eid that the alley between Chestnut atrd Washington streets near Carpe.-.ter be vacated. The petitioners say that It is too narrow and cannot be drained. The other petition asks that an alley in Ilrooklyn Park lie abandoned. The written thanks of the secretary of tlie local Y. W. C. .^. was presented to the council last evening for the free and light furnished them. Tlie street and aiiey committee reported favorably on the following petitions which were presented at the previous meeting: A sidewalk on the east side of South street from Madison to Irwin streets. A sidewalk on the east side of .North Walnut .street across Coon creek. This petition also calls for a bridge across Coon creek. K sidewalk from the east side of Xiirlli Second street from Jackson to Monroe. The question of whether or not a property owner has the right to move out his sidewalk to the curb line without securing permission from the council was discussed again last night. •'V number of proi>erty owners livln on paved streets have moved out their waiks to the curb lines while others living on the same street have not, making a "zIk zag" sidewalk line. The matter was referred to the Judiciary committee and city attorney. A remedy for the difficulty was suggested that (he street and alley committee gel a guarantee from every property owner that his walk will be moved after he has agreed to move the walks out to the curb. \V. H. Root last night presented a bill to the council for extra digging which his men had to do In making closet connections In various parts of the city. He said that the measurements given him were wrong. The que.itlon of reduclnfir the riile on electric lights on resident porclies was discussed. It was decided If t<?- ducing the rates would encourage patronage. It wou'd be well (o do so. However, the matter was referred to the publii utility eoranilttee and the city electrician. • i BOOSTERS GIVE PRIZE.

Count Von Stolberg, the president of the Reichstag will endeavor to prevent all reference to E<mperor VHlliam for ^lie present In the Reichstag dte- cnssions. The course is decided upon to quiet the public feeling. Von Buelow Is reported; today to be nervously depressed and >lnore tli^ ever disposed to resign from office''when a good opportunity arises. He Is more easily tired now .than^bia recent illness. The Prince laments that his official duties allow him no time for indulging In personal tastes. The emperor's moods, always objects ot study from hoi^r to hour by members of his official, household, have been carefully, almost painfully v.'atched during the recent days. The prevailing feeling among the members of the emperor's suite is one of resentment at the popular outburst against him. The emperor is described as feeling that he did not, in the language of the not^ he authorized to be published in the Reichs Anzieger, go beyond his oath whOQ he.took the crown faithfully tojibserve the constiluion. He simply reaffirmed that pledge to Chan cellur Von Buelow while under criticism, which the Retchs Anzeiger defines as exaggerated and incorrect^ The emperor regards his beredit and constltittlonal relation to Pnissia and to the federated states as unchanged. When the takes up the subject. Prince Von Buelow will give the reiachtag his personal deductions on his interview of Tuesday with the euiperor.
