Daring the preliminary stage the fact that, a new bank was being organized was kept secret, but now all details have been arranged and the TELEGRAPH today obtained the facts in the case. The bank is to be the Second National bank of Alton and is to be capitalized at 9100,000. The stockholders of the bank are Alton ana Oarlyle capitalists and business men, who claim to see in Alton one of the finest openings for a banking institution in the United States. A large block of the stock is owned by August Soheafly of Oar- lyle, the remaining shares being divided,among Wm. Eliot Smith, Edward Levis, Geo. M. Levis, R. H. Levls, Julius H. Ralble, Balser Schiess, Lucas P/eiffenberger, Mrs. E. Haagen, of Alton; W. A. J. Sparks of St. Louis, and several other Alton business men whose names are withheld for the present. The new bank is a sure thing for, as Mr. L. Pfeiffenberger today said, "We have more money offered than we know what to do with." The organizers have been almost besieged by applicants for stock and have been forced to curtail the amount that can be allowed to each holder of stock. The bank will be opened in the Haagen building at Second and Piasa streets so soon as the building can be prepared for it. Architect Pfeiffenberger has completed plans for the remodeling of the building and the necessary changes in the place will be begun shortly. The personnelof the present organizers of the bank is not what it originally was. Mr. 0. H. Finney, an Iowa banker, spent several weeka here late in the summer endeavoring to effect the organization. Mr. B. Sohiess waa to be president but, although willing to be a stockholder, he steadfastly refused to act as president, pleading existing business cares as an excuse. With Mr. Sohiess 1 refusal to become the head, the project temporarily fell through. Mr. August Schlafly, the wealthy Oarlyle banker, then in Europe, was written to concerning the bank and he returned at once, coming straight to Alton. In .two hours time he decided to go into the enterprise and the stock was subscribed to the amount of 9100,000. The directory of the new bank will be of Alton men exclusively. Mr. Schlafly will move to Alton to make his home. The plans for the reconstruction of the building present that of handsome structure. There will be a corner entrance with cut stone supports for pressed brick oolumns,supportlng the second story. The floors will be of tile, and all the latest apparatus for inside fixtures. There will be a side entrance at the north end of the iug on a wide stair case to the second story. There will be five ofllce rooms up stairs, with all modern conveniences such as water, steam, heat, etc. Fresh Baltimore oysters, cranberries and celery just received at Stanton & Yeakel's, 2nd and Market, u Henry and Second The BOYS shcu'd be kept warm.

A dispatch from Chicago Bays: "The members of the Illinois Naval Reserve, who took part in the war with Spain, either on battle ahipa, auxiliaries or blockading fleets, including the tara of the 2nd battalion from Mollne, Quiiicy and Alton, have taken steps to organize the Illinois Veteran Association A committee haa been appointed to have it incorporated. The committee will also urge the organization of similar associations In other States, with a view of uniting them all In a national organisation.

There is a new project being undertaken by Alton Investors that, if carried out, will be of great benefit to the city of Alton In a business way, and a gread convenience to all the agriculturists for thirty miles around Alton, Mr. H. J. Bowman is the head pusher of the new enterprise, which consists in the construction of a gram elevator for storing corn and other cereals that may be brought to the city. The elevator is designed to supply a market for all the grain raised in this vicinity, and in addition to grain, hay and all kinds of farm produce will be bought. The farmers in the vicinity of Alton have long been Inconvenienced by tbe lack of a ready market in Alton and tbe comparatively few who came here are now compelled oftentimes to stand upon the public square for hours Defore their loads can be disposed of. Many farmers who have been buying their necess&ries in thte city have been compelled to go elsewhere because of the poor market in Alton. Mr. Bowman has Interested a Springfield grain man In the enterprise and he has consented to investigate Alton's advantages as a location for a grain elevator. An elevator such as Is proposed could be built for less than »3,000 and there all the hay, corn and other grain, excepting possibly the wheat, could find a ready sale. The grain could be shipped to the larger markets and the country people could spend their money to the best advantage with Alton business men. The plan is certainly a good one and is sure to result in a great benefit to Alton commercially and would be mutually beneficial to the farmers and Alton business men alike.

Good work guaranteed.—W. D. Fluent. Rumored Sale of the Alton. Rumor has it that the Chicago & Alton railroad is soon to be acquired either by the Kansas City, Plttsburg & Gulf or the Vanderbllts. Nothing definite le known and the rumor is due probably to the fact that close friendly relations exiat between the Alton and tbe K. 0., P. & G. While it would be greatly to the interests of tbe Vanderbllts to have tbe road, it is •more reasonable that the Vanderbilts should be tbe new owners than the K. 0., P. & G. The last named road would not be benefited by the property, as it already has a good route between tbe points touched by tbe Alton. President Blaokstone of tbe Alton positively denies tbe statement, saying that be will never sell bis holding unless all tat*-"*" . ".sAa been offer> ;,,.^faJpP*™'' as hlm ' self. A nt^||pPWyearB ago Jay Gould offereoMr. Blaokstoue a price for bis holdings and to this the latter agreed only on tbe condition that Gould would purchase tbe stock of all other holders at tbe same figure. The millionaire would not do so and tbe deal tell through, It Is hardly probable that tho Alton stock could be obtained for leas than 9105 for each share. This would mean about [•40,000,000 for the property, and It would all have to be in cash. An Important Difference.
