only weighing forty-live pounds. Mr , Hat
ters by wns Interviewed by a Hn : correspondent
pendent ono day this ween anil was found to
bo In a cheerful mood for relating Incidents
of his early history.
Mr. Uattersby was born upon n farm olid
until the ago of sixteen there was nothing to
distinguish him from ordinary boys placed In
Ilka circumstances. His weight was about
ono hundred and twenty pounds , his health
was good and he performed the usual farm
duties devolving upon the country boy of his
age. Hut at Hits point In his existence u
wonderful transformation began to change
him from the plumpness of n well developed
youth to n "living corpse , " nn animated
skeleton. This phenomenon occurred
In the space of a few years nnd lofl him in
seemingly as good health as before. Such u
rare freak was at once discovered nnd se
cured by Hurnum and Mr. Bnttorsby's ' life In
Iho show business begun and continued for
many 3'cars , taking him through every stale
in the union and across the ocean lo Iho
countries beyond.
Ono of the strangest facts concerning Ihe
life of thin wonderful man \Vas his marriugo.
His wife was Mrs. Hannah Perkins , thelarg-
est fat woman , probably , the world has ever
Known mid who for yours was ono of Uar-
num's attraclions. The bond of affection
which sprung up between the hearts In these
strangely contrasted bodies was soon scaled
In holy matrimony. She was twenty years
old aiid woightid TvJ pounds , whllo ho
weighed forty-live pounds and was twenty-
lluvo years old. Stio had amazing strength
In hoi- big arms mid , when he fell ill , she
would lift him up bodily and nurse him as
thougn ho wore an Infant. Some yours ago
Mr. Hattcrsby received nn Injury which
terminated his show life , but his wife re
mained a star until her death , which occurred
two years ago.
A daughter was born to this slrango mar-

The abuse which has boon heaped upon
Postmaster General Wnnnmakor and Pen
sion Commissioner Katun has called attention
to the fact that no man Is exempt from mis
representation and calumny so long as ho
holds a federal position , nnd that It is com-
forlabie for only Iwo classes of persons lo
hold government offices these who are so
poor in this world's goods that they can have
no other business connection and no.thing
whalovcr to do with private affairs , and
Ihoso who are so rich that they can resolve
all their possessions Into n class of properly
which will clTcclually disappear from the
sight of man or woman.
No sooner did those gentleman enter the
service of the government than their polill cal
opponents began a fusillade of misrepresen
tation. Mr. Wntiamakor wns first charged
With using the mulls to advertise his mercan
tile business in Philadelphia , when every
body knew that ho was the largest legitimate
mercantile advertiser in the Unilcd Slates ,
and further that ho could not use Iho mails
lo his personal advantage. Thou ho was
charged with having perpetrated some dis
honorable scheme by which his firm pot con
tracts for the clothing used in the mail and
life saving services. Then ho Was chat-god
with being bankrupt by virtue of having
speculated in stocks. Finally ho was charged
with having helped to break the ICoystono
national bank. All of these charges wore In
vestigated by dcmocrallc newspapers , willing
to stretch tbo smallest point into something
big ready to make a highwayman out of
him if ho stepped by the roadside and yet
he was not only vindicated , but made
stronger and cleaner and holler in the eyes
of the world by the charges.
Postmaster-General Wannmakcr probably
has fewer personal enemies than any man in
inn country who has douo so much in busi
ness , society , politics and the church. Ho
has always been universally beloved , llo
was selected for his capacity and popularity.
The charges made against him were there

No sooner d'.d General Raum get into tbo

could Lo iflsto'rted into a charge which would
injure the republican party. His private
business was gone into , after it was found
impossible to got the slightest thing to place
against his ofllclul career , for ho had passed
upon more claims and was purformtng bis
duties with moro general satisfaction than
unv of his predecessor.It was found finally
that an old and inlimalo army
friend , in Iho course of private
business transactions , years before General
Rauin had any idea of being commissioner of
pensions , had done him the favor so common
lo all business men at some lime in their
lives of endorsing his note at a bunk. It so
happened that thai endorser wns u pension
agent. The endorsement began , however ,
long before the commissioner over thought of
being commissioner of pensions or having
any bfliclul opportuully of doing him favor ,
even Ihough ho was so inclined. It so" hap
pens also that thu routine of the pension
ofllco makes it a physical impossibility for
the commissioner to favor any ncont , to any
extent , withoul making Iho fact known to all
the clerks in the oflice , who would certainly
muKu it known to the world and result , in
driving the commissioner from olllce. Nover-
Iheloss this endorsement was taken as a
basis for abuse and General Haum has boon
charged with almost everything in Iho crim

A good opportunity will bo presented nt
Iho next session of congress for the alliance

honestly their antagonism to the national

II has been contended till along by the
political parties wbicb oppose property inter
ests thnt'nntional bankers are given an undue
advantage over private bunkers by reason of
their clrculaling notes from the government.
Unquestionably that charge held good to a
degree many years ago when bonds were at
par and the federal government was strug
gling to sell tnem and put the national banks
on u popular basts , but during the past ten
years when bonds have been at a high prem
ium the circulation of banks has boon so
unpopular that the national banks , have re
duced tholr capital stock In order that they
might reduce their circulation to thu lowest
ebb , and the rc'.luctions of circulation have
slcadily gone down much faster than thu
tie-cumulation of uauks. And further It bus
become popular , and almost universal , for
national banks to organize with u large sur
plus , instead of with a larger capital , because
they would not liuvu to take out circulation
upon the surplus , but the capital stock. All
this L'oos to show that no IOIIL-LT do national
bunks have any advantage over private bunks
except by government supervision , which is
in the Interest of tbo depositors , nnd the fur
ther advantage , In some remote localities , of
being able to sue in United States courts.
The latter is now most often u disadvantage.
If the opponents of tlio national banks are
really In earnest and not merely demagogues ,
as 11103- are bolloved to be , they will give
the banks a chance to raluco their holdings
of the circulation which tne opposition have
hold up against thorn ? mid which has been
the basis of the warfare against the bunks.
Heretofore the opposition has refused to do
anything on the subject , desiring rather to
destroy , the national banking system and
force the country back to the system of state
and wildcat banks , which before the war
came near bankrupting the country , and
which flooded all sections with worthless

WASHIXOTON , Juno 14. After careful pre
paration and itftor submission to his super
iors the statement of Comptroller of Currency
Luccy relative lo Iho downfall of the Key
stone National bank of 1'lillitilulphlii IIU.H
been made public by the secretary of the
treasury , to whom It Is addressed. It Is n
voluminous document , containing 0,000 words
ntul embodies tlio correspondence and papers
bearing upon the Quaker city llnnuclal
The statement , which Is In the form of a
communication to Secretary Foster , bears
( late of Juno 10 , and runs substantially as
follows :
"Hit : I Imvo tlio honor to submit herewith
a Plate-meat as the facts leading up to the
final closing of the Kovstono National banic
and the appointment of a receiver therefor.
The Hrst Inlormatlon received by mo in refer
ence to what has been known as tlio
Lucas defalcation was contained In ,
a communication addressed to me by
Bank Examiner Drew , from 1'hlladelphin ,
dated January 2-4 , IHOI , and received by mo
January "i ! . in this communication Mr.
Drew .s'nys that on entering upon the exami
nation of the Keystone National bank on the
llth inst. ho. was Informed by the president
that there would bo disclosed a hitherto
ofToctmillv concealed debt to tbo bank of its
into president , John C. Lucas , amounting to
ftiOO.DOO. Mr. Drew then explained how , by
adroit manipulation of the accounts of the
bank , Lucas , with the assistance of Marsh ,
former cashier of the bank , abstracted largo
sums of money from the bank to use in
speculations In real estate ut Spring Lake
and Sea Girt , N. . ) . , and in the con
struction of u largo building in Phila
delphia , now occupied in part by the bank.
To protect the bank as far as possible Drew
took measures , with the assistance of United
States District iVttornny Hoed , to secure for
the bank without publicity whatever prop
erty Belonged to the estate of Lucas and
succeeded In obtaining the property used by
the bank as a banking house for $ - ! ! i,000 and
property at Spring Lake and 8ou Girt.
Droxv hud laid before the directors the
comptroller's conclusion about an assessment ,
and whllo some wore willing to pay , others
feared the order would creuto another attack
on the banIc.
On February 20 , Comptroller Lacey wrote
to Drew , acknowledging the receipt of drafts
of Drew's full report and directed him to
give an estimate of the exact value of resour
ces and estimate the discount upon c-ich class
of Investments. "My object in this is , if pos
sible , " wrote Lacay , "to arrive ut precisely
the amount of the deficiency necessary to
make up hy assessment upon the capitoJ
stocir. I should bo glad to see any committee
of the board which may visit Washington ,
but can convince of no bettor wav to put the
institution in first class shape than that sug-
cested by inc. Ono thing I * certain , that some
nttion is imperatively necessary , and the
sooner It is taken the better will bo the
results. '
Marsh , Drew reported , was ipnornnlly led
Into those transactions and promised Lucas ,
when the latter was on his deathbed , to con
tinue the deception under the representation
.that the ' money abstracted would soon bo
'returned'to the "bank-from thVKresnltiNjfc
Lucas' enterprises. Ho also reported IhaC
there was no evidence that Marsh tiad pro
fited by these irregularities. Drew closed by
stating that beyond the directors of the
bunk , seven members of the clearing house
committee.counscl on either side and himself ,
no ono had any knowledge or suspicion , as
far us ho could say , that the bank was in any
trouble , mid earnestly hoped * that no pub
licity would bo given to the affair until the
bank should bo rehabilitated or efforts to
that end weru found futllo.
Accompanying-Ibis letter wns a preliminary
statement of the bank's condition , which ,
after reconsidering oil probable losses , left
a capital of $ . > ( )0,000 ) intact and 11 net surplus
of $ : > r > ,8l ! ) .
Upon the receipt of this report the comp-
trolfer was confronted with a grave responsi
Lacoy's statement then reverts to the finan
cial stringency at many points and refers to
the calamitous result tbat might have fol
lowed immediately upon tlio disclosure of the
.situation or the ousting of President Marsh.
The Keystone National bank passed through
u severe crisis in December and had boon
able to weather the storm with * ( X)0OOU ) less
assets than it had when this report reached
the comptroller. It Is evident that the comp
troller could not at this time lawfully have
closed the bank , nor could bo have oven levied
an assessment to matte good the impaired
capital , us none existed according to this
January 27 Mr. Drew came to Washington
and , in an interview with the comptroller ,
stated that in his Judgment and In the opin
ion of the clearing house committee tlio prop
erty conveyed to the bank by the Lucas estate -
tate was equal in value to the indebtedness
which had been concealed , and that in any
event the predltors of the baiiK were entirely
safe. It was , however , deemed necessary
that additional funds bo placed In the bunk.
as Its reserve had been deficient for a largo
part of the time since the run in December ,
and whllo the real estate convoyed to the
bank would ultimately produce the sum equal
to that debt which it was to liquidate , that
the cash the bank needed bo promptly
reinforced , either by the sale of real
estate or a reduction in Its line of discounts.
It was , therefore , after serious consideration
deemed best for the bank , for Its creditors ,
for tbo other hunkine associations and for
the city of Philadelphia , whoso treasurer hud
an netivo account fu the Dank , that Drew
should continue the examination of the
and promptly place his assistant , Mr. Jones ,
In charge of the books , with the understand
ing that the netivo directors of the bank
shoujd visit it dally.
Under these conditions and for those rea
sons the comptroller did not insist upon the
Imipodluto resignation of President Marsh ,
although It was distinctly understood that
ho was to remain only so long as hU services
were absolutely necessary In adjusting the
Irregularities which had grown up under his
management , us ho was , since the death of
Lucns.tho only person living who was eon vera-
ant With tlio operations which resulted so dis
astrously to the bunk.
The comptroller , therefore , did not
the bank at this time for the reason that ho
had no lawful authority to do so upon the
facts submitted , and for the further reason
that ho advfbcd the bayk oxmiiluor that- the
capital of the bank was unimpaired ; tlier
the creditors , therefore , were fully protco at
and prompt efforts would bo made to lud
iilontsh the cash by the deposit of 100,000 to
ho made by leading directors and stockhold
ers which should place In it fumls until Us
own accounts became available.
The statement of Lacey then details In
oxtenso the succeeding stops In tlio cosiness.
January ! U ) Drew telegraphed that the pros
pects weii' encouraging. February 1'J Lacey
wax in Philadelphia and met the leading
directors of the bank , and It was agreed Unit
the reserve of the bank should bo restored
and maintained.
On February 17 Drew transmitted his
complete report of the bun it's condition , anil
says : "It will take some time to untangle
the methods bv which the Lucas deficiency
was abstracted. " Drew In his totter adds
"that the whole amount of the loss tias boon
appropriated by the lute president and his
friends. I am more and moro convinced. I
lmv < > felt that the present president , who
was < -ashlor under Lucas , 1ms not been in
volved In the depredation further than to
have uecn nn obedient Instrument of the
l > c'culatlng and designing chlof. Hut wltbin
a day or two I have been forced to ontorlain I
suspicious of him. I hope these suspicion *
are groundless , but I .shall endeavor to
Dutlsfy myself us soon M I can.
XUu uuxv ogimuvulcuilQu ryfurnu to thu
matter seems to have been the flnnl and
formal report , us developed by the examina
tion , which has been In progress contin
uously sltii'o tlio communication of January
' , ' 4. 1 his was dated Februarv 2s and reached
mo March 2. Having dulv cousidorod all
the Items stated In tills report , " says I.acev ,
"It became apparent that an impulunont of
: apltul existed to the extent at least of
250,000 , whereupon , under data of March 7 , I
vied an assessment of W > 0 , < H)0 ) upon the as-
Miitlim to imiko good the Imp.ilrmoiit of
Hal to that amount. "
This assessment was lovlod under a pos-
Itlvo promise made by the committee , who
vlsliod Lacey , that the amount assessed
would be paid In nuo week nt most.
March IS , Larev luul not boon ndvl i'd of
the payment of the assessment mid on that
date wrote to Drew , asking what had been
done. March l-l Drew replied , saying :
" I ho board has not us vet limiik'iirutod any
mcusure. to obtain the assessment and no
portion has boon paid In. Although thu old
board was re-elected in Januurv lust several
of them have designedly failed u > iuallfv or
have tendered tlu-ir resignations. Among
thorn Is D. P. Mchols , whom 1 had hoped
would accept , lor the time being at Ic-ast. the
vice presidency , and who is president of tlio
Central trust compi.ny. I have earnestly en
deavored to simply the vacancies in the board
with other desirable members , but under
the circumstances few such are available. "
Drew adds : "Outside of the account of the
city treasurer , who has all along endeavored
to assist the bank so far as ho properly
could by putting in every day checks , etc. , in
the bank to cover , so far as possible , his
drafts npxt day through other banks or the
Koystorio national bank , Individual deposits
have diminished smco Februarv 1.1 , ult. , a
little moro than $200,000. A hit-go mnount
could bo collected from other drafts and
ovurduo papers , and , In short , if thu direc
tors of the bunk would , UH I repeatedly sug
gested , take the work into their own hands
instead of placing it on the president , who is
absorbed in other matters necessarily con
nected with the conduct of the bank under
the present embarrassing circumstances ,
5100,000 nt least could bo collected from those
sources within a short time. " This letter bv
Urow concludes thus : "lam greatly disap
pointed in liiidlng so little active support
given by the directors In the effort to re
habilitate the bank. "
Thoiibovo reached Laccv on the Itith , and
three days later ho closed the bunk.
The statement next sots forth the letter
from Luccy to Drew on March 17 , rcplving to
Drew's letter of the llth , In which ho says :
"Tho condition of the Kovstono bank i.s such
that I must Insist upon the prompt payment
of u larger part of the amount of their as
sessment within the next live days or else I
shall feel called upon to take peremptory
action. "
"Tho bank was closed March 19 , " con
tinued Lacey , "and did not reopen for busi
ness. The order to close was given after an
interview with Marsh. Ito informed mo of
the fact that certificates representing about
two thousand five hundred shares of stock in
the Keystone National bank had been im
properly delivered to John Waimmukor
during the lifetime ol John C. Lucas , and
negotiations for tlio surrender and cancella
tion of the same had failed , for the reason
thbt Wanamakor claimed to hold them as a
pledges for the payment of n certain sum of
money duo him from the estate of John ( ! .
Lucas , and he declined to surrender tbo stock
until tbo debt was paid.
"Complaint has boon made because of delay
in appointing a receiver. This is utterly
without force , as no interest whatever lias
thereby suffered and for the reason
that tlio delay was not unusual.
The bank closed March 10 and a
receiver was appointed May 0. This bank
, vas therefore in the hands of the examiner
fifty days after being closed , Uuring which
time bo was In effect an acting receiver. The
comptroller Jias been criticized for three
things : First , lor allowing Marsh to remain
in office after his confession and not cauaiug
his arrest. Second , for delay in closing the
bank. Third , for delay in appointing a re
ceiver. . As to tbo Hrst matter complained of ,
T-hnvo thistoeay : ' , That-I arn" nbtvheru *
charged with any responsibility in con
nection with criminal prosecutions , and
the bank examiner is held to have douo his
duty as soon as ho lays before the United
Suites attorney any facts involving crime
which may come to his knowledge In the dis
charge of his duties. Bvery bank examiner
is instructed and expected to do this , and I
could not avoid the conclusion that Drew
hud discharged Ma duty after reading his let
ter of January 24 , In which ho says ho as
sisted in securing o sottlcmont'with the
Lucas estate by United States District At
torney Reed.
"I had a right to suppose that from that
time on to the final arrest that the United
States district attorney was fullv informed
as to Marsh's conduct , also the clearing house
committee , with the directors of the bank ,
who wore really the responsible parties , mid
the examiner for the delay in closing the
oanif. I desire to say that the comptroller is
governed bv the provisions of the ueto ( Juno
DO , 187 . The entire force of the i-ritirism Is
narrowed ( | owu to this , that the comptroller ,
conscious of the exorcise of the discretion
imposed upon him by the statute , decided
that it was wisest and best to impose the
lighter of the two penalties which the law pro
vides nnd give the bank fourteen duvs in which
to pay the assessment , unaor section 5,20.1 ,
rather than Immediately order it closed with
all that such a disaster moans.
"For the delay in appointing u receiver.
This criticism , of very little Importance in
any event , has been fully discussed already.
"In closing this branch of the subject , In
justice to ono whoso name has been brought
into discussion In this failure , I de-
slro to say that Hon. John U'ana-
maker has never directly or Indi
rectly suggested or solicited ono duv's
delay In closing of the bank tier of the ap
pointment of the reeoivor. In fact 1 have
met , mm out , once during tlio present year ,
nnd that mooting was March 21 , nt the'.sug
gestion nnd In the presence of A. U. Xottlo-
ton , noting secretary of the treasury. This
interview was on the day after the Koy.stonu
bank substantially confirmed the information
I received from Marsh , and ho said ho held
as a pledge certificates representing about
two thousand llvo hundred Hhuros In the
Keystone bunk. I urged him to use bis In-
lluenco in aid of the effort * being mudo to re
open the bank. I tailed , however. In my
attempt to enlist him in tbo enterprise , and
so ended communication between us.
"In concluding ttils statement I doom it my
duty to say that in my opinion the several re
ports made by the bank examiner did not re
flect the true condition of the buuic under
aonsldoratlon. The degree of blame , If any ,
which properly attaches to Drew is yet to bo
nscertnined. In the meantime , however , ho
has bean directed to suspend examinations
until the facts uro submitted and u conclu
sion reached.
