Dec. 5 .-f(8pecial.> Tlie National Bank of G6nunerce, of SaBsasiClty, Mo., failed i/o open tUt morning and was placed in the hands of James T. Bradley, of Sedan, Kas., National Bank - examiner.'! The bank was closed by an order of the comptroller of tbe currency. The bank Is one of the largest and qldest in the Southwest It owed dei»>sitors $16,942,694. The hank has I been in a weakened condition sijice the last statement was issued In August which showed' that deposits oi^- thirty-five millions were owed mostly'to outside banks. Yesterday surprtse' was ex- >ressed when the bank failed to publish its statement at the r'request of the comptroller. This brought a bis ^rowd of depositors to tb^ bank this nomlng to find the insyiuUon c'os- ?d. There was much r iexcitement vmong the depositors butjilo disorder. The bank was a United j States ds- »08itor>-. and it,held a quarter of a niltion in government deposits. Wm \. Ru'e. cashier, said thStf mom'ng: The directors thought !(.

Downing, president of the "learing House, said: *fl|b to yes *?rday the Bank of Commerce owed the Clearing House thr^* hundred •housan:! dollars. This !tc?;ount was icttled but it was out of the question o furnish aid to the hmi. I consider the failure due to a laftk of conservatism. None of the otijer banks 'las found it necessarj- to; ask aid of he C'earing House and • I. consider ijem perfectly sound. The Commerce failure will not affect thetn." The bank Is Interested in ".many lo- enterprises. It was erri ?cting an office and bank building to'^cost a mill- on and a half dollars.

They were, the Stock Yards Bank of Conimerc*. with deposits of three hundred tliou^nd do'- lars. and the Union Avenue I ^Bank of Commerce, with small deitosUs. There was no special exciteiiient around the Institutions. The failures ^of the banks failed to cause a run on any of the other banks In the *lty and «rt most of the other. InsHtutionB de posits were made as usuatl. An Inquiry at the banks; here reveals the fact that npne <>f [the local banks had any mone^- oh deposit at the above bank, so their;failure will not affect the Tola institutions In any manner whatever.

It steadily grew worse until I went to Colorado Springs to get rtlief. A short time tdr ter I came home the trouble returned. I had such spells with my back that I couid not rise from a chair without help and it was impossible for me to go u|> .stairs. My feet and ankles i:welled badly and the secretions from the kidneys gave evidence of disorder. They were of a high color and contained a sediment like brick dust. I hoard much in favor of Doan's Kidney Pills and used them with the result that for a long tliue I remained comparatively free from my old troubles. .-Vt length through doing some extra hard work the troubles retarned, but not for long for I procured Doan's Kidney Pills at Charles B. Spencer 4k Co.'s drug store and they brought me the same.promiit and positive relief that I obtained from them in tfee first instance.

Last Month the Panama Force Accomplished More Than Ever Before. Washington. Dec. 5. —Colonel Coe- thals, chief engineer of the Panama cana', cabled the canal officers here today that all records In the matter of excavation on the isthmus were again broken in Xovember.

This fact Is evidence that the financial conditions are clearing up. The employees of the various faotorles have been paid In script for the past two pay days. The paying of one-half ca.sli to<lay shows that the conditions are getting better. :« One banker stated today that he believed that within a very short time. # things continued lo improve, the banks would be able to meet the factory pay roll in cash as they formerly did. A PLAY OF THE WEST. "Flaming Arrow' at Grand Theater Will Portray FrMtier Ltfe. A realistic picture Of life in tbe Car west will be the offering at the Grand Saturday matinee and night under the tile of "The Flaming Arrow.", The'play is not. as might naturally be expected, a blood and thunder production, abounding in gun shots and other hair raising episodes, unpleasant to the audience, but is a faithful picture of life on the frontier and in one of the famous government posts. It tells a beantJHil love story. Is replete with thrilling scenes, and its characters are all taken from living prototypes, true In Character and costume. As "The Old Homestead" is the typical play of the old east, so Is "The Flaming Arrow" of the far west. Lincoln J. Carter is the author and producer and .critics unanimously conceded to be his best production. To add local color and realism a tribe of real Indians is carried- also several ex-United States soldiers, cowboys, horses and an Indian brass band, which will give a band concert before the performance. ~ COUNCIL MEETS TONIGHT.
