O'CONNOR, Attorney-at-Law, Room 409 German-A mcrican Bunk Building, ST. JOSFA'H, OM FUNERAL GF KM. HAKFSTEI- Last Saturday at 2 o'clock the people of this community assembled at the M. E. Church, in Wathena, to pay their last tribute of respect to the memory of Jacob F.

Harpster, whose tragic death on tho 16th had brought so great a shock upon the community. The circumstances of his sad and untimely ending have been recounted, the harrowing facts have been laid before a regretful public and need not find further reference here. The gathering was the largest throng that has assembled in Wathena scarcely in the annals of our city, for purpose. Bowed in grief, inbushed and silent sorrow, the populace gathered to listen to the beautiful words dedicated to his memory, by the Kev. Dr.

W. F. Packard. Seldom in the history of a community do the people witness a scene so universally regretted. In this case the deepest sorrow was on the faces of all.

The hearty and most sincere sympathy of the entire community goes out to the grief stricken widowand little daughter and the entire family to whom the sad affliction has brought such sorrow. In to the memory of the deceased, and for the good of all those who may read it, The KKPCBLiCANshall, at a later date publish the beautiful words of Dr. Packard, spoken upon this sad occasion. the first of the week.

In this connection The Republican desires to urge the people of athena and this section to keep cool heads anu pull together for the best interests of all. The affair has been sadenuugu, the conditions are deplorable, but tnere is nothing to gain and much to lose by friction and discord. Conditions are to be met, and wild rumors and speculations, evil prophecies and complaint, will neither bring back our departed fellow-citizen, whose sad ending so weighs us down, nor will it put money back into the pockets of the unfortunate, who have suffered losses.

There are countless rumors that would make interesting reading for the curious and lend amunition to the tongue of gopsip, but that, is Lot what the people are interested in. They want to know the facss. and we shall endeavor to give them. It is impossible at this time to get a reliable statement, of actual conditions of the affairs of the bank, but from investigations made thus far, it is safe to say that the shortage in the finances of the bank has been largely overdrawn, and that the depositors are likely to receive from 50 to 70 cents on the dollar, The daily papers have handled the case from a sensational standpoint altogether and have no more authority for stating same time a partition' wall through under the direction of E.

have confidence in Mr. Miller, it is probable that from 50 to 70 per cent may be realized. We are informed that there is at least $30,000 of good paper among the assets of the bank. There is, in addition to this, of cash on hand, and the furniture and fixtures of the bank are worth about $1,000. The liability of the stockholders of the 22 shares held by others than Mr.

Harp-ster. adds $2,200 more to the assets, making a total of $36,000, as against $44,000 of liabilities. If these figures are correct, and we have reason to believe they are close to the facts, the loss to be made up is $8,000. Add to this $2,000 for settling up the business and there is $10,000 to be taken out of the $44,000 of liabilities, or less than 35 percent. These estimates are based upon the information we have been able to obtain, and we believe they will be found to be substantially correct.

If so, our people can recover from the financial features of the calamity, though they cannot forget the regretful and terribly sad fate of our departed townsman.
