The charge against him was-the misappropriation of tho funds of the bank, and the specification wai that ha bad loaned himself »2'.!4,000. Mr. Means bos bad a leading position among business men for a number of years; has been reputed quite wealthy; wrved a term as mayor, when ho wa» elected, not by a party voto, hut by a combination whose support was a compliment to their candidate. To have a man of such prominence put In peril of Imprlnanment causes a profound feeling. There IB a fairly well authenticated' statement that Ihe examination of the bank's books and papers show a gross violation of the banking law in loans to officers and others connected with the hank very largely in excess of the limit allowed by the law to any one. It is possible that this wrong-doing may have been carried to such an extent aa to Imperil the bank's solvency. At this time It Is not thought that other arrests will be made, but of this no one can speak with certainty because there baa not been time for a thorough examination of the bank's affairs.

The Impression is growini; stronger than ever that the December statement was falsified, and that Cashier Edwards may follow bis pros dont on tho list of government victims. A report that the appended bank would pay 80 per cpnt. on IU capital stock, which was current during the day, appears to have been rose-colored. Figures furnished by a man who in thoroughly familiar with tbe situation show that tbe bank can not hopa to pay more than 00 cants, and It may be only 50 cents. Much of the paper held by tha Metropolitan, It has been asserted, is doubtful, even if the best construction Is put upon It. When $500.000 was recently added to the capital stock only $200,000 of it was actually sold. Tbe rest was put out as collateral for loans, making It a debt against the capital. A matter that interest* thousands of people in this city In the fact that the cashier and assistant cashier are both connoctnd with several building associations that had deposits tho Metropolitan. It has been learned, however, .that some of these associations ' checked out In time. . I i There is one difference between the cave of • tbe Metropolitan and that of tha Fidelity, and that U that there Is great public- sympathy tor all the oflleors of tbe Metropolitan except Decamp. William Moans Is a genial gentleman, and is very generally liked. la the case of the Fidelity there was almost universally a strong feeling against the officers. Tbe cashier states that there remains about t.WO.Oi'O of the *1,500,000 depoult account. U U thought depositors will be paid In full, while stockholders will be subjected to an assessment of 10 to 1ft per cent, on tbe par value of their holdings. It Is developed that among the directors there was arlne composed of President Means. Vice President Decamp, and Directors Gorke, Duckworth, and Roth. This quartette has Invested In all sorts of wildcat schemes, and had loaned the money of' tbe depositors to each other in an •rtraordlnary manner, without any security being given. Tbe amount thus loaned In those Investments alone will exceed $000,000. B. L. Harper, of tbe Fidelity, speaking of the failure at tbe penitentiary at Columbus, said Tuesday morning: "It was the Fidelity money that kept tho Metropolitan from fall- lug last summer, and when Decamp "was temporary recairer of the Fidelity all remittances received by Decamp for tha Fidelity were deposited in the Metropolitan, and It was this mooey—some very large amount*, once or twice being t&0,OuO and over a day —wblob kept the Metropolitan afloat. When Decamp gave np tbe receivership and Armstrong demanded the Fidelity money on deposit in tho Metropolitan, that bank nearly failed. It could not give up this money promptly, but finally the Metropolitan folks got together and saved themselves. Continuing,-Harper said: "The government Is more to blame for the frequent bank failures than the bank officials themselves. -The - government should have examiners •anougb to examine banks every three months. If tha officials are competent no bank can so cripple itself as to be thrown Into a rorolvemblp. Tbe trouble is that these examines do not call on a bank uuleas they hear rumors affecting Ita credit, the very tlmu tbey should stay away and give tbe bank a chance to recover. Instead, .the examtnor rushes in and precipitate* tbe catastrophe. Had the examiner done his duty the Fidelity would never have fulled, and I would not now be in prison. When tho regular examination was made the Fidelity was carrying several hundred thousand dollars of Wiltshire's checks, and tharo wen no objiction made to them. Hud Tuesday morning he requested a -private-ln-/ tervlew, and upon her refusal shot her. The girl's mother fell pros'rate and Is now delirious. Last Sunday Bull wrote Miss Evoretl's father, who Is in Kentucky, and to his own father, who resides in southwest Missouri, telling them that he Intended to kill tho girl and hlmsolf. Tho father of the girl owns a stock farm of 6-40 acres and Is *bne of the loading stock raisei-H in this section of the country. _ _____ __ Suit to Itcoover 910, OOO.

Summing np tho substance of Monday's Installment he sa'd IIH had shown that tho message meant absolute fre» trail?, and could result In nothing but the entiro abolishment of the protective system of tho country. H» could not but a.witna that the Democratic party Intended to follow the recommendations of It* commander-in-chief. There bad been, indeed, come straws that looked as If there might be som? question about that—a*'if there would be an attempt at some compromise—as if thero would be a studied effort on the port of the Democratic pnrty to do nothing at this session in the line of the president's recommendations, and then to go once more to the country on the president's free trade message as its platform. But be could not aisume that the Democratic party and the Democratic leaders In congress really Intended that course of action. He admitted the necessity of some roductlon of income, but ho was not to bo frightened Into an abandonment of the protective system by the president's "raw head and bloody bones" figures. . As to the surplus In tho treasury he denied that there was auy necessity for an accumulation. The qr«sllon of a reduction of taxation had very little to do with relieving the treasury of what tho president called it* "congested condition." The great talk about the surplus could , l>e for no other purpose than to hold out an Inducement to break down the protective system. The senate had waited now nearly three yonra for some bill fora reduction of the taxation to come from the bouse, and had wondered why Its comlnz was so long delayed. . Eight long weeks had passed since cou^rdsa had been told of the danRerous condition of the treasury, end no bill had yet been reported in the bouse look- Ing to a reduction of tho surplus. This was not a Republican administration. It was a Democratic administration; and If money had been allowed to accumulate In the treasury aiidiicrulToft TiTHd(i~~fcr~ltaredUT!tion;-~the~ fault was that of tho party in power. What reason could be given for thatdolay In the past? What reason could be given for that delay to-day I If it wero not that the accumulation In the treasury was being used, and deliberately unod, to force congress Into a destruction of the protective system of the country. Platt went on to argue tbat there was no need of $100,000,000 reduction of revenue, and that such a roductlon could not be made with any wise regard to tho condition of national finances. Ho asked why the reduction should not bo made by the abolition or reduction of internal revenue. It. was because the protective system would then be left In force. Internal revenue taxation was a taxation on'American products—tobacco and corn. It was a lax that operated unequally. And yet tbe president said that nobody objected to it. If more roductlon were needed, why not abolish the duty on sugar, or roduoo It by 2.1 por cent.; or why not take half tho tax oil tobacco and whisky. There was but answer. If there really existed any fear of the oonsequtincud of an accumulated surplus; If there was no coming presidential campaign, and If a reduction of revenue -was the ouly thing aimed at, it oould be easily accomplished by dealing with Internal revenue, taxation. He wanted tho Democratic party to follow IU leader, to obey It* commancU r, to take off e mask, and have a square fight on tbe mo presented by tho . president; and he uotod from tho speech of Kunna where be eclared that "both tho Internal and external tax systems will be treated an a whole." tsrnu of enlistment, or until the lit of Mayc 18ti5,or were prevented from completing tbelr tertns of service by reason of wounds received or diseases contracted in the line of duty, and who fullnd to be muttered out.

WATKiun-'nr, Conn., .F«b. 8.-H. B Khodes published the following In The American Tuesday: Rosooo Conkling'i friends and the newspaper* have time and again stated that the great Btalwart wa* out of politic* for the rest of his natural Ufa A few days ago the statement was published that he was even about to shako cff what little Republican dust there was on his feet and turn active Cleveland Democrat. A few evenings ago, however, tbo ex-senator, In my hearing, uttered a few sentences which effectually dispose of this Idea and show that, while b* may be and uo doubt U out of active politic* to stay, he Is still a Republican. Tbe conversation was more extended than I shall attempt, to reproduce, and I am, of conrw, unable to give the dramatic effect with which Mr. Conkllng gave utterance to bis word*. The talk began in a general way on politics, and Conkllng gave no vldenco of particular interest until casual mention was made of the late President Arbur's name. It became evident at once tbat he ex-*enator was as loyal to Mr. Arthur's memory as he had been to tbe man. He at mce poured forth a torrent of eloquence in >ralse ofbls former ally, adding: "But the Republicans proved him false: they were treacherous to him; tbey damned him. Tom Platt did it^ and I suppose they ought to be satisfied." "Well, senator, who do you think would make the moat available Republican candl- datel Whom do you prefer!" Straightening himself up to bis full height, and with a dignified military bearing so peculiar to himself, and which to an observer suggests the picture of a turkey gobbler, the ex-senator «ald with greater force and effjot- ivenes*, and a strong dramatic voice: "Goo. Phil Sheridan would b* the bast nominee, and next to him Walter CJ. Gronham. But what 1* tbe sense of mentioning namest It 111 not bo either." ' "But Sbe.-ldan Is a Roman Catholic, and thi* would uo doubt alienate a very large number of the Republican voters." -"Sheridan a .Roman Catholic, Is her said Mr. Conkllng, In a cynical tone that »poki> volumes, and slowly and dramatically emphasizing each syllable; "well, *o wa* Elaine." "Ob, no; Elaine Is not a Roman Catholic," "Isn't he! Isn't heT said Mr. Conkllng with deeper voice, and emphasis that could not have been mistaken as to bis meaning, nor can It be expressod-ln Ink or type. Then, continuing, he said:-"Did not Mr. Elaine and hi* friends make a special plea, a strong demand for and a demand upon tbe priests to command the support and votes of the Roman Catholics! Blame not a Roman Catholic I But it will not be Sheridan, nor will It be Judge Qreiham. It will be Blalne; and if not he, then Sherman, or perhaps Allison.
