A Merry Gathering.
When, by some pre-arranged
plan, Bart Kirkham arrived home
at the unusually early hour of 9
last evening, he was surprised to
find the house filled to overflowing
with a jo-ou8 assembly of his
young friends. He had entirely
forgotten the fact that yesterday
was his nineteenth birthday, al
though his friends had not, and
he was forcibly reminded of the
matter several time9 during the
evening. The young folks were a
jolly crowd, judging from the
infectious peals of laughter, and
they were at no loss for amuse
ments, the time being most enter
tainingly whiled away in games
and social intercourse. A delicious
repast was served at 11 o'clock. The
crowd dispersed shortly after mid
night. There were present: Misses
Lettie Smith, Maud fc tickel, Margaret
Safford, Alma Schmidtmann, Eva
Smith, Cora Schlegel, Ada Bibby,
Nellie Dray, Mattie Carmack and
Lizzie Bibby, and Messrs. Fred
Schlegel, George Smith, Tom Sher
wood, Will Tucker, Morris Crisman,
Otto Herold, John Kirkham, Will
Smith and Charles Rhode.
Three ;Funny Men.
It is often said that a good Ger
man, Irish and negro comedian can
give a show by themselves and they
often do, but in addition to having
Chas. A. Loder, German, C. E. Ed
nvarde Irish, and W. S. Lang, negro
comedians, who are the very best in
their lines, the "O What a Night"
company has also ten other good
people besides the English marvels,
the Sisters Leigh. They are twin
tiisters who look alike exactly, and
are the most accomplished dancers
ever seen on the stage. Their won
derful "Delusion Dance? is the
greatest act ever seen in thie coun
try, and people who have never seen
it, will not believe that human in
genuity, patience and energy could
accomplish eo much, even though
assisted by nature, in making two
people resemble each other so per
fectly. You will miss the best play
of the season if you fail to see "Oh!
What a Night" next Thursday night.

At a meeting of the banking
board yesterday morning, upon the
recommendation of Bank Examiner
McGrew, the following was adopted
and will be sent as a circular to
each bank in the state.
Sir: It has come to the knowledge
of this department that sever.!
Oanks witnin me siaie who ciaim id
bedoimra savings bank businecr
air violating the provisions of tin
banking act relating to such haul
by using and delivering to their 1
nositors a form ol Olantt receipt or
check sometimes slightly different
in form from those used by com
mercial banks, but which in lact are
treated as ordinary bank checks, be
ing paid through other banks and
returned to the bank where the de
posite is kept for collection. In
borne instances the managers of
these banks are claiming to evade
the provision of the law regulating
the pay ment of deposi s by such
banks by at all times keeping the
depositors pass book in the banks,
which is plainly in violation of the
spirit of the law and cannot be pe r
mitted, Some such banks also make a
habit of receiving on deposit
checks, drafts, bills of exchange
and other commercial paper, and
selling or furnishing without cost,
exchange drawn on foreign cities,
all of which is plainly in violation
of the law regulating the operation
of savings banks.
In order that a bank may legally
transact a general commercial
banking business, it is necessary,
among other tilings, that such
bank shall be possessed ol a certain
amount of capital (specified in sec
lion 1 of the banking act) and that
it shall at all tunes keep on hand n
certaiu amount of available funds
as a reserve, which shall be 20 per
centum of the deposits in all cities
of 25,000 or over, or 15 per centum in
all other cities.
It is deemed expedient by the
banking board and has been soprd
ered that any bank claiming to do a
savings'bank business which shall
violate the law in the manner above
indicated, and which shall not have
the requisite amount of capital te
transact a general bankingbusiness
in the city or town where such bank
shall be located, and which shall
not at all times keep on hand the
amount of available funds as a re
serve which is required of a bank
doing a general banking business,
shall be deemed as doing an unsafe
and an authorized business jeopar
dizing the interests of the deposi
tors, and 1hat it is unsafe and inex
pedient to allow such bank or banks
to continueto transact business and
the proper steps will now be taken
to wind up the affairs of such bank
as provided in section 14 of the
This order will be enforced and
the hearty co-operation is asked of
all savings bank managers who are
complying with the law and thus
prevent the diastrous consequences
which must follow the violating of
the wise provisions of the banking
law relating to this class of banks.

Captain John Stout, a Mississippi
pilot, died recently in New Orleans.
His life was distinguished by several
acts of bravery. He was at the wheel
of the steamer Robert E. Lee when she
1 was burned at Yucatan plantation, in
1882. On that occasion he saved a score
of lives by remaining at the wheel and
holding his boat to the bank. He re
mained on the blazing vessel until the
very last moment, and only escaped by
sliding down the log chain. Captain
Stout was on board the steamboat J.
W. White when she was burned above
Bayou Sara in 1886, and jumped over
board to escape the flames. He was
picked up almost lifeless. Philadelphia
When the Men Were Saved.
A small Victoria trading sloop was
water logged, her mast having fallen
through her bottom, in a recent blow off
Cape Flattery, Wash. Some Indians
went off to the boat, but refused to take
the men off until they agreed to give
the Indians all the contents ot the sloop,
which they did, and the red men then
towed her into Cape Beal. The Port
Angeles Tribune calls the Indians along
that coast regular freebooter sharks.
