WRECKED THE BANK. The WuxhiiiKton National of Xtnv York Forced to Suspend Because Its President Loaixrcl Nearly Half of Jts Capitol- on Worthless Securities. J?KW YORK, March 24.—Official an- novmutment was made late Jlonday flit that the Washington national tank at Xo. 1 Broadway would not open its doors to-day. The bank's resources have been loaned out by the president to t\vo friends, and the clis- coverv of its condition was accidentally made!" The bank is net a member of the Clearing- house association, but clears through the Gallatin national bank. Under a rule of the clearinff house which went into effect ,1 anuary 1 the banks clearing in this way must submit their accounts to examination by the clearing- house.' Monday Bank Examiner Hepburn, representing- the clearing 1 house, appeared at the Washington bank to examine its affairs. He soon discovered that its capital was impaired. As soon as this announcement was made President Sherman, who has been in charge of the bank, was prostrated, but recovered sufficiently to inform the directory that he had been too liberal in loaning- money to his friends. The bank had a capital of §300,000 and deposits of 8600,000. Cashier Grainger said that the developments were a surprise to both himself and the directors. None of them had any idea that the president was involved in any irregular, transactions, and lie could say nothing about details of the method by which the funds, were withdrawn. Mr. Tilgimian. a director of the Washing-ton national bank, says the impairment of the capital is in the neighborhood of 8135,000. President Sherman said: "I wish to have it understood that I alone hear the burden of responsibility. It was impossible for me to avoid the overdraft, and after it was made I could do no better than to make it a loan. Permitting a man to open an account by depositing out-of-town drafts and drawing against them was an error of judgment —a very unfortunate error. No one friendly his been benelited by the transaction, nor was there any real attempt to conceal the affairs of my administration of tlie institution from the directors. They were fully informed of the transfer of the overdraft to a loan. Tho other affair I did not mention for one reason only, and that was that I hoped that the man. if his difficulties were not noised abroad, would be able to cover his shortage. "I have shown too much sympathy. A bank officer has no risfSt to have a heart j>r to try to save a man who is in difficulties. Still it is hard to see a worthy man go down without an effort being made to save him." : He admitted that the security? was r.ot first-class Wall street collateral, but he hoped to recover the money in a short time. He did not believe, and does not believe, now, that the account will be lost. But the security he had taken, he said, would not stand the scrutiny of the clearing 'house. This overdraft was between 873,000 and 875,000. , Director Sidell Tiig-hman gave the names of two persons to whom President Sherman gave unsecured loans. One was John S. Silver, formerly a trustee of the' defunct American Loan and Trust Company, the' aggregates of whose drafts were §51,000. Another was Capt. F. S. Norton, who recently sailed across the Atlantic in his life boat and is believed, to be lost. Ten thousand dcftlars was loaned him on the stock of his company, now absolutely worthless. The third man was not named. He owes the bank §42,000. of which only §7,000 is secured. Tilghman speaks very bitterly of the loose way in which the bank's affairs have been conducted, and it is believed that sensational developments are forth-, coming. killed by tlie Cars. ANDERSON, Ind., March 24.—Lizzie Bond, aged 20, while walking along the Cincinnati, Wabash & Michigan railroad, stepped from the track to escape an approaching train. Her clothing was caught by the cars and she was dragged 100 yards, her brains being dashed out against the ties. Refuse to Be Evicted. LONDON, March -M:— One hundred families were evicted from their homes in the Island of Lewis, in the Hebrides, to make a deer preserve. On Monday they took forcible possession of their old farms, and announce that they will resist any attempt to again evict them. Fond du Lac and adjacent counties in Wisconsin are suffering from an epidemic of la- grippe, .and 90. per cent of the adult population is affected. A TEN STRIKE!
