cent , will bo paid them by the end of thli
week. The cashier's shortage is stated to be
8200,000 and the bank baa 850,000 In bad
O. F. Simpson nud C , J. Osborn , director !
of the Wall street bank , Saturday night am

is duo to irregularities of the cashier
John P. Dickinson , who has unt beer
at his desk since Prlday night , the excuse foi
his absence Saturday beinir that ho WAR con
fined to his houao by illness. It is not charged
that Dickinson IB guilty of any worse irrofiu
larlty than carelessness in the security col
laterals offered for loans. Several Wai
street firms nro closely idontifiei

NEW YORK , August 11. It Is stated thai
Mr. D. O. Mills nnd Mr. Charles Osbon
have decided to advance sufficient money t <
enable the Wall street bank to resume to >
morrow. Charles J. O.sborn , ono of the di <
rectois , states that the loss to thu bank cannel
exceed its capital , 8500.0PO , and it ii not
likely to bo so tjroat , and the depositor * will
not have to submit to any delay in getting
their money. There Is no reason uhyOO pei
cent , can not bo paid out at once.

P. Dickinson , the defaulting cashier o the

liouso of her father , C. F. Simpson , Madison

inson since Friday last , and ho was then at
the Oriental hotel , Coney Island. Where ho
is now , Simpson says neither ho nor his
laughter know. The rumor that the ( inn of
Dickinson Bros , was a heavy loser by the fail
ure is denied to-night by Platt K. Dickinson ,
who says thu firm was in no way affected.

md It would be very doubtful if the report of

1'ho directors refused to jay anythinc what-

fourths of the population were in the street.
Kvorywhoro men women and children congre

each inquired of his neighbor if ho had felt the
shock. Many timid people wcro eo alarmed
that they hesitated to re-enter their houses
and did not do BO until assured by stronger
minded neighbors that a repetition of the re
markable event was unlikely. In a short
time after the occurrence , people flocked
from all parts of the city to Chestnut street
and there gathered around the different
newspaper nnd telegraph offices to arcertaia
