Tho 'heirlooms are in the hand* of irious people, including pawnbrokers, collectors and disreputable women; The late marquis, it seems, had treated them as available assets and distributed them freely among his friends and hangers on, male and female, the majority of whom pledged or sold them speedily for. oasb. Some of the present poesotttn have readily agreed to return the CJMt- 'urea on reasonable terms.

Dickerson, the cashier now nnder six years sentence at Fort Madison penitentiary, has been very interesting and brought out much new information in regard to the failure. Diclterson has/been on the stand for sev^ eral days and has been nnder strong cross fire from County Attorneys Bruce and : wan and Attorneys Hndspeth and Siins for the defense. His testimony has been direct and cool nnd the oroes fire has not affected him. The most damaging testimony was thjt which alleged that Yetzer bad full knowledge in every particular as to the condition of the bank and was counseled in all and every action that was taken. Witness said that he had been in consultation with JntleV Phelps and J, C. YeUer in Phelps & Temple** office, they being attorney* for the bank, during the summer, and Phelnn had eaid that when the bank should be closed he and the defendant would be arreeted for fraudulent banking. He told him (witness) that the best, thiqg*. he could do then would be to plead guilty and go to the penitentiary, It was understood that Yetcer'* account wltfe the bank was to be fixed np •o a* to appear u wall a* possible, and when the failnn came be oonld run the hardware store in bis children's name after the qrash.
