New Bank to Be Owned by Mt» Investors Excloslvely-Outslde Capital to Be Barred. An important ^meeting of the promoters of the new bank was held Tuesday afternoon and a radical change in the personnel of the stock holders was agreed upon. The char acter of the institution was much changed by the meeting. It was de- eidedthat the capital of the bank shall be subscribed to only oy Alton men and thereby the local Interest In the Institution is to be increased. The last plan of the organizers was that 51 per cent of the stock be owned by the Scblafly's of Oarlyle who demanded a majority of the stock before they would consent to go into the enterprise. To this arrangement the local investors were not willing to agree and the meeting held Thursday was the critical point in the success of the venture. From the beginning of the enterprise the promoters have been besieged by applicants for stock to the new bank, and it was decided thai some of the offers be accepted and instead of the stock being sold to August Schlafly's interests, it be disposed of to the local investors who have been clamoring for admission to the number of stock holders. By the admission of these investors the number of persons financially Interested in the bank will be greatly increased and the business of the bank correspondingly increased. The name of the bank Is to be the Citizen's National Bank of Alton, and it is to be located in the Haageu building at Second and Piasa streets. The stock loldera are the Investors who were to have stock as first arranged, except Mr. Sohlafly. Mr. Ed Keshner of Edwardsville will be cashier and Mr. Balser Sohiess of Alton will be the President. Mr. Sohiess was prevailed upon to accept the Presidency notwithstanding the fact that he has stead fastly refused on several other occasions. As bead of the new bank his repuDation as a business man will five a prestige to the institution that would otherwise be very difficult to secure. The capital stock of the new bank is to be $100,000 and is subscribed to by the following persons: Balser Schiess, Mr. snd Mrs. Lucas Pfelffenberger, Fred Schiesa, Dr. G. Taphorn, Fred Qlllham, Mrs. Haagen, J. F. McQinnis, H. M. Sohweppe, Wm. Eliot Smith, H. G. M'Pike, Geo. Levis, E. H. Levis, A. W. Hope, Edward ,evis and others amounting to thirty- five in all. As originally intended the bank will be open for business after April The stock will be issued in blocks ranging from 95,000 to 9100. A meet- ng of the stockholders will be held Monday afternoon at which the board of directors of the new institution will be named and all preliminary business will be transacted preparatory to getting the enterprise under way. Mr. Edward P. Keshner, the oash- er, is now cashier of an Edwardsville >ank. He is an expert banker and accountant. He settled up the Setter estate in St. Olalr county, and was called as expert in the 'allure. He is 37 years of age and has been in the banking business for p-ears. One of the large stockholders proposed to make the capital stock f200,000 and guarantee that it would ill be taken. The bank will open up with bright prospects. The contract lor the reconstruction of the Haagen wilding on corner of Second and Piasa streets, as the location of the bank, will be let next week, and work will be pushed to completion as rap- Idly as possible.

F Sparks on Prospect street was de stroyed by fire yesterday afternoon and now Is nothing but a mass o charred boards and ashes where once the building atood. Flames were discovered coming from the top of the boose at 4:45 o'clock and a Ore alarm was turned in. But the flames had at that time mode such headway that the firemen and other willing helpers who assisted In the work were unable to to do anything effectual. It was apparent when the fire department arrived that the place was doomed, but the firemen worked hard to save what possibly could be saved. Some of the furniture on the first floor was carried out but the greater part of it was destroyed in the bouse. The firemen worked with a will and even while the ceiling and walls of the bouse were falling in, they stuck to their posts inside, fighting the flames and slowly getting the best of it. By six o'clock the fire was extinguished but the building was a total wreck. During the fire the neighboring houses of Mr. J. K. Butler and Mr. W. D. Sparks were often threatened with destruction but were kept soaking wet and the flying pieces ..of burning wood did not set them afire. The house that was destroyed last night was .the second one in two years. It was camparatively new and all the furniture in it was new. The loss will reach $3,000, covered with in suranoe.

The woolen cloth manufacturing company that has been negotiating with the Piaaa woolen mill owners, has now finally decided to take tb9 site offered at West Alton and erect jaildlngs there for the new plant. Representatives of the Missouri Woolen Oo. were in West Alton a few days ago and closed the deal, receiving deeds to the site for a factory and bouses for workingmen. Contracts were let also tor the erection of the buildings and work is to be begun at once. It Is supposed the Missouri Woolen Company has given up the intention of coming to Alton. The owners of the Piaaa woolen mill could not agree to the terms of purchase which the would-be purchasers insist ed upon, so nothing was done toward closing the deal.
