' The delegate from Maryland, J.

Some warm speeches were made, but the meeting lasted'only on liour. Agree .to Call n Conx-ontlon. .

Chicago,; Aug. 7.—Charles H; Fargo & Co., one of the oldest wholesale housea in the west, closed their doors Thursday ofternoon at five o'clock. The assign*. ment comes to the firm after a life of *0 . j'ears.. The house was founded in 1858 by Charles H.'Fargo, a leading- business man of Chicago's early days,, and it withstood panics and fires 'that.:carried down'many of its associates. In the lire of 1871 its offices, factory and warehouses were destroyed, but tha firm regained its former position as one of the leading wholesale boot and shoe houses of the west. The factory of tha firm is at Dixon, HI. It was one of the first among large western shoe factories, and early amonff those., Into which improved and modern machinery was introduced. . , The cause of the failure is attributed to the general conditions of the money market and the uncertainty of the;po- .litical campaign. The.capital stock,of. the concern is fWOjOOO. No accurate stateracnT ol Die assets and liabilities was obtainable. According to an acceptable estimate, however, the liabill- / ties will not reach over $300,000, and the assets, liberally stntetl.perhapa $446,000. Brltlkh Barken tine Wrecked.
