Tlio Merchants' ' National bank occu
pies tO'day tlic finest building in tlio
city. The corporation was organized in
October , lf-82 , witli the following oln-
tors : Frank Murphy , president : Sam
uel K. Hogers , vlco president ; IJon 13.
Wood , cashier , and LuUi < 5r Drake as-
Hititunt cashier. Tlicbo o Ulcers , with
John F. Coad , C. C. Hou ol and Gcorgo
W. Doano , constituted the board of di
rectors. This same corps of olllcors and
directors arc its ollleors and directors
to-day. When the bunk was organized
the capital stock was fixed at $100,000 ,
but owing to n constant- and rapid in
crease In the growth of the city and tlio
banking Business of the city and county
it has been doomed advisable by the
directors to increase the capital stock
of the itiBlitutioa until now it stands in
the front rank as ono of the thrco banlcs
of the state , having a paid-up capital of
$500,000 and places it on an equal foot
ing with the oldest bank in tlio city.
During the five years and n half the
bank has been doing business it has
accumulated a surplus of $100,000 which
is hold in addition to the paid-up capital
When the bank was first orgadlzod it
was located in the building on the
northwestern corner of Farnam and
Thirteenth streets. About two years
ago it became apparent to the directors
of the institution that their apartments
wore not largo cilough in which to carry
on their already largo and growing
business , and they began to ilrrango
for the erection of their present new
and clcg.vnt building which is now vir
tually completed and was occupied by
the banking institution last Monday for
the Hrbt time. *
The now building is situated on the
northeast corner of .Farnani and Thir
teenth Btruots. It was begun in April ,
I860 , and at present ovary lloOr in it is
occupied. It is bovon stories high and
is built of Massachusetts brown stone ,
St. Louis pressed brick and iron. It .is ,
with ono exception , the highest build
ing in the city. The basement story is
of brown stone , and is occupied by the
Missouri 1'iicific railway company and
the gas company. The remaining six
btorics arc of pressed brick
with brown stqno trimmings. The
walls are solid masonry and
do not contain a binglo stick of timber.
The floors are laid on iron frames thrco
feet apart anil a foot thick , between
which are laid fireproof tiloafoot thick ,
In Hat arch position. The floors , are
perfectly solid and dead 0411 ! are insured
und luvvo been tested to support 2,600
pounds to the square foot , thus render
ing them stroag enough to have vaults
on any floor.
The main entrance to the building is
on Farnam street , and the banking Iloor
and elevator is reached b\ra broad stone
and marble stairway which leads to a
wide , spacious hall. This hall is lln-
isned in elegantly carved and designed
antiquet oak. At the left of
the main entrance is the en
trance to the banking room.
This room is finished in cherry and all
the furniture in the room is of the same
material. In the south end of tlio room
are the private olliccs of the president
and directors. Next to these are the
desks of the cashier and his assistant.
Then comes the enclosed compartments
of the paying teller , the two receiving
tellers , the discount and collection
clerks and bookkeepers. These com
partments arc largo and opposite to
cacli is a window which affords the best
.possible light for the clerics and book
keepers to do their work by. In the north
side of the booklccoping apartments
are the thrco vaults , two of which are
for the books. The money vault is seven
foot high and 0x7 loot at the base.
The bottom in of solid masonry. The
walls are of railroad iron and brick ,
welded together and lined with steel
three inches in thickness. The vault
doors are of unusual weight and thick
ness and are made of alternate layers
of steel and iron , put together in a su
perior manner and are secured by the
Sargent lock.
Tin ) safes and vaults were built
at the works of , 'and by
GUB Andreon , of this city. In the roar
of these rooms are toilet , stationery and
lunch for the use of the clerks in the
Tlio third and fourth stories of the
building are occupied by the olllces of
the Chicago & Northwestern Railway
company and nave been specially jilted
up for them. The remaining stories of
the building are almost entirely occu
pied by corporations of some kind , and
it Ecoms now as though the entire build
ing would be given up to corporation
headquarters. All the rojoms in
the building are finibhcd in
hardwood and with the latest
system of steam heating , water
Bervlco and gas and cloetrje lights. The
entire buildjng is constructed regard-
lets of cost and for the convenience of
these who may occupy it. Already six-
EOvenUiB of the rooms in the building
are occupied or rented , and some of the
remaining ones have been spoken for.
The building is a credit to the city and
is also a monument of the growth and
development of the business of the
banking institution that built and
own it.

Jefferson squuro was nglow wttli lireworks
and llllccl with inspiring music from the
Musical Union and A. O. H. bands und dem
ocratic oratory last night on the occasion of
the ratification meeting hold to endorse the
notion of tlio St. Louis convention in the
choice of Cleveland and Tliurmnn. About
ono thousand persons , including men , wom
en and chihlren , ussemhlcil about the speak
ers stand. A. J. Poppleton , chairman , of
the meeting , was the ilrst speaker , anu
dwelt .it some length oa the virtues of the
democratic purty , and spoke In glowing
terms of President Cleveland and Air. Thur-
man. The latter , lie said , was n.TclTersonian
democrat , horn in Virginia and passing tlio
greater part of his life in Ohio , livery ref
erence to Thurumn'a record in the United
States senate and his bandana was hailed
with npplnuho and cheers.
Hon. M. V. Gannon , upon being introduced ,
said it gave him pleasure to be able to ap
pear and assist in the ratification of the nom
ination of Grovcr Cleveland und Senator
Thurman. Cleveland holds aloft the con
stitutional banner of democracy. Ho is a
man of honesty , a man of nerve
and a man with courage to carry
out without fear or Juvor the responsi
bilities nml requirements of his olllco.
The speaker sandwiched his reinurks with a
number of anecdotes and funny stories ,
which were well received by tlio crowd.
Attorney Mahoney next steeped forward
and congratulated the democracy. In a few
days the people will hear from Chicago , but
tlio party that will make nominations there
has not as good n record for freedom for the
people and equal rights to one and all as has
the democracy. Cleveland's honesty and
llrmncssof purpose , and Thurman's states
manship wcro fully extolled by the speaker.
When J. SterliiiBMorton came to the front
ho received an ovation. Quiet being restored
Mr. Morton gave vent to his views on the
tariff question , and sustained Mr. Cleveland's
policy on this Important subject. Mr. Mor
ton was enthusiastic over Mr. Cleveland's
past record , and predicted a triumphant
ro-olcctlon for him.
After short speeches from several orators
of local fame , and three cheers for Cleveland
and Thurman the crowd dispersed.

ter's two children wcro thrown from n car
riage yesterday afternoon and had narrow
cf-capes from fatal accidents. They were
driving nn Dodgu street between Fourteenth

htoppcd with a suddenness that sent a shock
into the adjoining stores. The girl was car
ried into u Htorc and found to have one knee
nnd leg badly bruised and discolored. Her
lip was cut by the teeth and her head bruised.
The injuries nro bathed and bandaged , and
apparently are not serious. The gran Ifather
was bruised about the head , shoulder and

was so caught that , had not the horse been
caught on the instant , his neck would prob
ably have been broken. The carriage struck
