Kirby, jrtie AgiilBtana Cashier, a ' I)efaalt6j|/for a Large Aniouut. Much to the surprise of our citizens the National City Bank closed its doors tnts morning. The reason for this action was explained by a card which was hung m tho window, which stated tho situation to be the result of a defalcation of the 'assistant....cashier, E. J. Kirby. This knowledge had only been in possession of the directors for a short time and they thought at first that there would be no need of taking any such Steps, but after consulting in regard to the matter they decided that tho best thing to do in their own interest and that of their depositors was to close the doois. Wo have the best assurance that no one outside tho bank has reason to feel any alarm or uneasiness, and some little delay <ind inconvenience will be the only difliculty The amount of money taken is not known at present. The cashier, J. 11. Bentlev, and V. At Lepper are at work at the books, but at present cannot give any figures, but it is probable from $30,000 to $50,000, which Mr. Kirby's bonds- Charles and Addle Shipp visited at James Bali's Monday.

The closing exercises of St. Mary's Academy took place at the opera-house last evening. The hall was comfort ably well filled an,d the program as a whole a well pleasing one. The boys' prologue, by a number of little boys, was very nicely gone* through with and a gossip pantomiue, by a number of little girls dressed to represent old ladies, was worthy of special mention. The musical numbers were well rendered and showed good training: A /well written essay by Miss N. Hughes was nicely delivered by Miss E. Keefc. The tenth anniversary of the organization of the Knights of the Macabees in Michigan will be celebrated June lltb by all tents in the jurisdiction.

About the only topic of conversation on the street today has been the defalcation of E. J. Kirby, assistant cashier of the city bank, mention of-which is made elsewhere. The report canie like a clap of thunder from a clear sky. Mr. Kirby since his residence in this city has always been considered an honest, straight forward man, and had tho confidence of every one who knew.him. The bank officials placed entire confidence in him and they were as much astonished as any one when the defal; cation was -revealed. . According .to information which we consider good the money has all been taken in a short time. Mr. .Kirby is said to have invested heavily . in wheat and lost. It is probable if such is the case that he took small sum at first and then kept taking more thinking that things would turn 1 his way and he would be able to put it back before it was found out. It iajhard for any one who knew Eugene Kirby to tftink tbatie willfully robbed the bank/of the sum that is said to be gone., To Speculators. I AM MAKING A GREAT SLAUGHTE IN tnOCKEhi.
