London, Juno 10. Tho effect of tho
Oriental bank suspension, which was
announced Wednesday afternoon, is in
no way comparable with tho crash of
Ilaring Hros. & Co. Tho suspension had
been to a largo extent discounted, but
notwithstanding this it has exercised a
depressing lntlucnco on the markets gen
erally and is causing discussion regard
ing the depression ln tho valuo of silver
nnd tho position of other eastern
houses. Shares of tho Indian and Chi
nese bank fell one to two points. Ten
pound shares of tho Now Oriental bank

pounds. Tho insurance rate of depos
its was 5 per cent, The depositors will
probably only suffer from delay and
will eventually obtain their deposits in
full. Tho prospects for the sharehold
ers, however, aro doubtful.
