Total of 11,076 Defaults , With Liabil
ities of $131,111,150.
Now York , Jan. 2. Reports to R.
0. Dun & Co. show that the failures
or 1901 were 11,002 In number and
IKl.OOL'.nTi ; In amount of liabilities ,
vhllo among banking and other
duclary Institutions there were 74
nsolvonclcs , Involving $18,008,774. a
otal of 11,07G defaults and $131,113-
GO liabilities. Those figures com-
mro very favorably with the10,833
allures in 1900 , with liabilities ot
U7-1,113,23G , of which C9 were banks
or ? 35G17,5G3. Manufacturing dlsas-
ers In 1901 numbered 2,411 , with nn
ntlobtcdncss of ? 44,9GO,983 , compared
vlth 2,409 In the previous year owing
151,702,142 , while there were 7,905
uspenslons of traders for $52OGOG40 ,
against 7.744 In 1900 , with liabilities
f $59,415,592. The defaulted llabll-
tlcs were 9G cents to each $1,000 of
mnk exchanges. A ratio to the nuin-
> er of firms In business shows that
ho ontlro amount of defaulted In
debtedness averaged $94.33 for each
oncorn. This amount compares with
119.G3 In 1900 , while going back to
893 the average was $290.08.
In many ways the prosperous con
ditions In the United States were
shared across the northern border , for
commercial failures In the Dominion
of Canada were fewer In number and
smaller In amount of liabilities than
n flvo of the preceding seven years.
As to banking Insolvencies the report
was even more favorable.

court' yesterday dissolved the tempo
rary Injunction Issued In the case of
Peter Power against , the Northern Pa
cific Hallway company by Judgd El

trained the Northern Pacific fiom IB-
ulng any evidences of Indebtedness

plaintiff's attorneys to have the court
Ix the amount of bond which would bo
required In order to appeal from the
decision and to stay all further pro
ceedings In the lower court pending
ho appeal.
Judge Lochren refused to allow a
suporsetleas bond In any amount to
> o given. Attorney W. A. Lancaster ,
representing Mr. Power , the plaintiff ,
asked In court : "Does your honor
nean to say that the damage which
would result to the Northern Pacific
company If an appeal from your order
dissolving the temporary Injunction
were taken and a supersedeas bond
staying proceedings were filed would
be so great that a bond could not bo
given largo enough to reimburse the
defendant ? "
"As the question of granting a super-
sedeas , " the judge replied , "Is discre-
lonary with the court , I decline to
lermit the staying of the proceedings
or the force of the order by a supersc-
deas bond on appeal. "
Judge Lochren held that the North
ern Pacific was acting within the au
thority of its charter , of the contract
entered Into between it and Its stock-
lolders as Incorporated in the certifi
cates of preferred stock , and of the
agreement of Nov. 13 , In attempting to
