" ' VERY COMPLICATED DEAL. Tho Complainant Alleges lhat the Bank Has Committed Unlawful Acts-He Snes lor tho Ucturn of Collateral Securiiy. 'What promises to b. on of tbo most interesting and sensational law-suits in Buf-faE, courts for years Is now ponding m fta. the amount involved s well as from the nature of the transaction in question, and w sensat.ona from the serious cliarpes made against the defendant. The plaintiff is ue C. Hardesty. at present a resident of the City of Buffalo, and the defendant is the Queen City Bank of Buffalo. The Bank is charged' hy the plaintiff with having wrongfully and unlawfully retained and disposed of ?3l!,000 worth of collateral security. The transaction which ' furnished the grounds for the action occurred on March 'AO, 1S!)3, but in order fully to understand the ease, it is necessary to R behind this and explain a business transaction between other parties and of previous date, which necessitated the deal between the plaintiff and the defendant company. Gue C. Hardesty, the plaintiff, was a member of and the heaviest stockholder in the Marion Land and Park Association ot Iekport, N. 1"., it company formed for the purpose of buying and selling land in the county of Grant, State of Indiana, near the city of Marion. On or alwut September 23, 1S1K), George Ij. Mason suld to the Association about ;?7 1-2 acres of land, comprising 240 town lots in the county of Grant. The deed was made to William II. Wiley, a member of the Association, in trust for the Association. David Weesner. Serh Thomas, and Klihu J. Weesner held mortgages against the property amounting to about $4,2tX). In January, ls'.C, the mortgages were foreclosed, and in April of the same year the Sheriff of Grant County Bold the land mi dor the iwer of sale contained in the mortgage. The mortgagees became the purchasers, but in the deed to them was the condition, which under the laws of Indiana appear in all deeds of land Bold under foreclosure, that the mortgagors had the right at any time within a year to redeem the property by paying the amount of the purchase money with interest at eight per cent. In order to redeem this property it was necessary- for the Association to pay .$4.2Mt. Mr. Hardesty knew that the land would Boon rapidly increase in value, and being the owner of the majority of shares, desired to redeem the land. With this object in view he entered into jn agreement with the Queen City Bank by means of which he would be enabled to redeem the 37 1-2 acres. The agreement was made in March 'AO, lS&'i. According to the complaint, the agreement with the Bank required him to give the Bank his personal note for $0,2Uy O this amount $4,200 was to be used iaTedoeming the land, and the other SI.OOkt was to go to the Bank as a bonus., f iw their advancing the money An 'jPoiiateral security to the note. Hardesty Avas to give to the Bank a deed of all the Indiana land free of incumbrance, and also a deed of a house and b it on I'ark Street hi the City of Buffalo against which there was a small mortgage. The deed of ..... 4,v - of a t The nc mand, ti i tne propery was to ue taken in tne name of a third party, a friend of the Bank. note, which was made payable on de- was made out and then to the Bank, and the assignment of" the Sheriff's certificate of sale and the Sheriff's deed of the .Indiana lantl was executed and delivered on September, 1S1K. On the same date the plaintiff also executed and delivered a deed and conveyance of the house and lot on Park Street, Buffalo. As drawn, the deeds were not trust deeds, but under the agreement the laud was simply deeded as collateral security to the sr. 200 unto nnd was to be re-conveyed to llurnVstv as soon as he paid the note. At that date the land had been divided into 240 town lots. About this time, the property began to increase rapidly in value. There was a boom in city properly, and the land on the outskirts naturally became more valuable. Mr. Hardesty saw his opportunity to make a large sum of money out of the sale of the lots, and kept the bank informed from time to time of the rise in value of the laud. The bank at once be- ganto sell lots with an indifference, so says Mr. Hardesty, as to what price they received.. It was but a very short time until the. bank had sold a sufficient number of lots to pay off completely the S.l.L'iX) note with interest. Although the note -was made payable on demand, it was never presented for payment and consequently is not fi uuc .o proceeumgs were taken by law or otherwise Ty the bank to collect the amount of the note, or to sell the Indiana land, but. according to the complaint, "the bank, without right .or authority and in violation of the agreement and of the tctisT, contracted with various parties for the sale of a portion of the said lands, and did sell a large number of said lots. u. wit-Eighty-eight sub-lots for inadequate prices, and the bank has received large sums of money and securities and made deeds without the knowledge or consent of plaintiff or without legal proceedings." The bank sold not ortly a sufficient number of the lots to pay the amount of Hardesty's indebtedness to it. but many more, the proceeds of which far exceed the amount of his note of $5,200. Mr. llardestv frequently called at the- bank and asked for a statement of the number of lots sold and the amount received for them, as well as for an account and a reconveyance of the lots unsold. lie could never obtain anv satisfaction by way of explanation or otherwise, and finally decided to invoke the aid of the courts. Ho consulted Attorney Alfred B. Osgoodby. and the result is the pending action. Tho snmmons in the action was served on May 11 of the present year.

The plaintiff demands an accounting of all the lots sold, the value of the lots sold to apply to plaintiff's note, and a reconveyance of all the lots unsold, or their value, The result of the action is said to be anxiously awaited by many who know of the transaction. : M'lint Attorney Inlchart Say.

The bank wITiTh 1 represent does notbelieve in trying lawsuits in the newspapers. When the proper time comes the bank will make a complete defence to every point raised. The statements made by Mr. Hardesty or his attorney are almost without an exception the' merest tissue of fiction, and the whole article on their part is misleading in every particular."

Their Characteristics A SuScfdo and. Murder. In most large cities alleys divjde nearly every block and the sanitary conditions of such cities are thereby vastly improved and the aesthetic features are not destroyed or rendered abortive by regular displays of unsightly. -dilapidated and foul-smelling ash ami garbage receptacles in-' fro-nt of fine residences and business establishments. So far as alleys are concerned, Buffalo is very poorly supplied, not only as regards the quantity, but the quality as well. The greed of land grabbers or a gross oversight led! to Buffalo s alley-less plight. Fortunately, eyes and smelling apparatus are not greatly offended by the forethought and courtesy of the Chesterfieldian collectors of garbage and refuse, who not crnly enter yards and residences for such receptacles, but also replace them. On this account alleys are not sadly missed except by sensitive persons who object to coal and wood being dumped on fine lawns, by people who drink' on the sly ami object to the Ieddler of bottled beer stopping in front of their bouses. . "The maddest woman I ever encountered." said such a peddler, "lives on a West Side street. She ordered two dozen bottles of beer and I look it to the house. I won't take-it,' she said, 'and you had no business to deliver it by the front entrance. Take it back -and redeliver it tomiorrow, at I.ook i us: I'p Vine Alley. the alley entrance. I'm not going to have all my neighbors telling everybody that we drink beer.'; Why. some of our customers are so sensitive on that account that we do not pa i til our name or business on the delivery wigon and our goods are concealed in covered baskets." The greatest alley in Buffalo bears the name of a Celebrated tragedian. Booth. It is between. South Division ; and Swan streets and extends from Washington to Hickory Street. It is a namplw, paved pas-sane, occupied by stables, factories, etc. One block of this alley has jicen ceiled to the Government, as it would otherwise have- divided the new Postotlii-e. Perhap the most notorious alley here is Yhie Alley, once a resort for negroes, now one. of the touirhest white settlements here. It was recently paved with asphalt and then dignified with the name of street. Burton Alley (now street 1 extends from No. M'.i Main Street and is quite unlike the typical 'alley. Other alleys, such as German, Lut heral!,' Blossom, Boston,! Canal, Compromise and others have recently changed names or have undergone n certain progress in. the direction jf , full-Hedged "streets" - or "places." Lutheran Street talleyi for' instance is well jeop!ed and is just such an alley as the unfortunate si nirer. a uo in li.-( arey. described over 1.1O years his immortal "Sally in 0111 Alley: Of all the girls that are so smart There's hone like pretty Sally; She is the darling of my heart. Aud she lives in our 'alley. If all the. days that's in the week I dearly love but one day - And that's the day that conies betwixt A Saturday and Monday: For theii I'm drest all In my best To 'walk abroad with Sally; She is the darling of my heart. And she lives in our alley. Tle-re are Sallys and Marys and others in Lutheran and some neighboring alleys who on Sundays look every inch as sweet and well dressed and happy as they walk Scene In Love Alley. abroad with their smiling' beaus. as her of whom t he songster saidi "her father he makes ; cabbage nets nnd throuirh the streets iloes cry 'em." Alas, that such an eccentric musical genius ; as Carey should meet ai suicide's fate! But to return to Buffalo alleys. They are like a dry-goods dealer's remnants all qualities, lengths, widths etc. Some boar tine names. Home insignificant ones. Anderson Alley, which rnim from Fmslie to Lord Street was until more appro priately known as Meteor Alley. In 1K70 Irving; Place, now quite a fashionable place, was little more than no.. -alley, and bore, the name of The Bowery! There are a few dwellings in Blowbom Alley (mixed in between sundry barnsi etc.,) aud in one of thee places the unfortunate Herman murdered bin wife aad slept with the frightfully mutilated corjse a few days be- fore his horrible butchery was discovered. Although the murderer long since expiated his crimp on the scaffold, 4 this day the small people of the neighborhood never linger in the vicinity of the Ill-fated house. Bundy's Alley is what is known as a "blind alley," personal entering it having to retrace their steps in order to get out. It is a narrow, crooked but neat little place and quite cosmopolitan, its denizens leing of about a dozen nationalities and at least three colors white, black, and yellow. It begins at No. 124 Sycamore Street and runs northerly, to nowhere in particular. ' Typical alleys in the 1st Ward are Ixve and Burwell. The latter is called "Place" instead of its more appropriate synonym "alley." and has been described and mcr tu red in the Courier as a part of Buffalo's "Little Italy. Love Alley bears a resemblance to such 1st Ward streets as Illinois, Indiana, Marion, and others. Coatsworth, Prenatt. and Hamill are other types of South Side alleys. Compromise Alleys which runs from Maryland Street to West Avenue, has been called Malta Place since 1H. In WK Boston Alley, which runs jsk i- vA 1 13 fcpii At the End of Vlrjrlnla IMaee. h . f, from No, Tupper Street to Virginia and contains a score of small houses, was I transformed into Ilemond Place or "Demon" us cx-Ald. White facetiously called it. Seneca Place, n short connection from No. Seneca Street to Myrtle Street, was until 1 years ago' better known as Doucjierty's Alley. I rban Alley is now called Durrenberger Place; Mooch Alley, one of the. neatest "side issues" on the' West Side, is now called Virginia Place; Edwin Place was formerly ioodel! Alley. Neptune Place was until last year Kefch-lim Alley. Nichols Alley is now Nichols Place, and Fritz and San Domingo places are commonplace tilleys. Among the other well known alleys of tin city are I'icard. Ralph, Mead. Bean. Pitch. Berrick, Jefferson, Lebanon, Jxd-lin. Hersee (formerly Koons). Fell, Dickens. Douglas. Addison. Caldwell, Chain. Itochevot. Sexton. Steuben. Troy. Swiveller. Werrick. Sylvan, and Trestle. Some of these alleys are .much frequented. Berrick Alley, for instance, is an entrance from Seneca Street to Klin at Swan Street. Sexton Alley was for years well known to pool-rooin gamblers, the "little side door" to tho chief betting resort being there. Trestle Alley divides Lovejoy Street and is a short passage for railrostd men at Last Buffalo and for the ducks and geese which frequent the pastures and ponds in that vicinity. It is a fact that one half of the world does not know how the other half lives but. the whole truth can be learned by a careful, examination of our alleys. At any rate some of Buffalo's alleys are a long distance from Heaven if cleanliness is next to godliness. Fortunately snow is a good - stiKstittite for charity in covering sanitary sins.
