THE GOLDEN RULE. ECHOES OF THE BANK FAILURE. Suit Brought to Recover $26,000 on Notes Passed as Forgeries. CUIltt THAT JOHNSON WAS A MEMBER OF THE FIRM OF McSARY CO. A Suit That May Bring to Light Where Some of the Money of the State National Bank Went. McOonnell & McConnell, representing the State National bank, filed a •uitlate yesterday afternoon in the Oass circuit court against John F, Johnson and Joseph T. McNary demanding •aS.OOO. The complaint alleges that Joseph T. McNary and John F.Johnson were partners in the real estate busl- operated under the firm J. T. McNary & Co., and that at the date of the failure of the State National bank the firm owed the bank one note calling for 115,000 and another note for 12,500. The first note is dated August 26th, ness and name of 1895 and the $2,500 note bears date of February 20tb, 1897. The complaint filed goes Into the details of the transactions of McNary & Co. wfth the bank. On Sept. 18th, 1891 it is alleged that the defendants deposited with the State National bank under the firm name of J. T. McNary, Maple Grove, $125.00. This was Increased by other deposits until it reachod 1775 on October 17, 1891. This sum was checked against oy McNary & Co. until December 7, 1891, when It was exhausted, and from that time forward the account was overdrawn and notwithstanding frequent deposits were made the. account was so far overdrawn by November 20, 1893, that the firm owed the bank $13,103.48. To meet this indebtedness it is alleged that the firm of J • T McNary & Co. executed a note for §13,200 and had that amount credited to their account, leaving a balance of $77.17 to their credit as a deposit. Checks were drawn against this deposit until the account was again overdrawn. Deposits were made and checks drawn until August 13. 1894, when the books showed that the account had again been overdrawn to the extent of 11,206.06. In the meantime payments had been made on the «13,200 note until it was reduced- to 111,246. On August 28, 1894, a new note for 113,000 was given from the proceeds of which the old note wa taken up and a balance of 1547.53 was placed to the firm's credit as a de posit. This account was carried along until December 20, 1894, when it had been overdrawn to the amoun of $2,110.17. At this time th *13,000 note was taken up and an other note for $15,000 given. This left the firm owing the 115,000 note and the open account overdrawn •110.17. The $15,000 note was renewed on August 26, 1895, and inter- «stpaid on ic. This note, signed by MoNary & Co., was found among the assets of the State National bank, and at the time was considered forged not«. It was one of the note which the City National bank refusei to accept when ft purchased th assets of the State National. It Is also alleged in the complain that there is due from J. T McNary and John F. Johnso as members of the firm o J. T. McNary & Co. another note fo &be amounti of $2,500. It Is a leged that they were depositors unde the name of J. T. McNary, Mapl Grove, from August, 1894, to Febru ary, 1897, and that continually afte November 26th, 1896, they overdrew their account, until on Feb. 20th 1897, McNary & Co. gave their note for $2, 500 to make good the overdrawn account.

The rm made small deposits with he bank and constantly overdrew hem until, at the time of the failure f the bank, the firm owed the bank omething like $20 : 000, which was epresented by two alleged genuine romlssory notes that had been car- ied on the bank's books for months. These notes— one for $15,000 and the otheir for $2,500— were classed by Bank Examiner Caldwell as forger- es and appeared in the list as two of the thirty-two forged notes. But the State National bank now alleges that the notes were not forgeries and had been carried on the bank's books as bonafide notes. The suit promises to be an interesting one and full of sensations, It will probably bring to light other of John F. Johnson's many speculations. 1C is hinted that other leads have been discovered that may enable the old bank to recover vast sums of the bank's money which Johnson used In outside speculations.
