Tlio bankers convention did but llttlo bus
iness this morning. The delegates started
out from the Grand hotel at 8:80 : o'clock and
took a rldo about the city In vehicles pro
vided by the local bankers and rltlzcr.s.
The weather was just right , the streets
were neither dusty nor muddy nnd every
thing was In such condition as to show the
city off to the visitors In the best possible
fashion , The beautiful residences , shaded
drives , paved streets and enchanting glens ,
called . . forth many expressions of admiration ,
the trip through Fall-mount park being espe
cially enjoyed , All the principal residence
streets were driven over and the visitors
given full opportunity to appreciate the full
beauty of the metropolis of southwestern
Iowa. <
The morning session was to have com
menced nt Did ) o'clock , but the dele
gates wcio so late in returning
from their drive that It was nearly
two hours later than that when they re
turned to the opera house and settled down
to bu&lncBs.
Invltnt.onfrnm WorldM Fair
As nn introduction Secretary Dlnwlddlo
read a communication from the management
of the World's fair stating that an inter
national bankers' congress is to bo held In
Chicago for a week , commencing Juno 111.
and asking that delegates bo appointed
by the Iowa Bankers association to meet in >
convention with the delegates from the
other states of the country and from Eng
land and Franco. The following delegates
wore appointed , each ono being given the
privilege of appointing a substitute in the
event of his being unable to attend : S , F.
Smith of Davenport. C. H. Hannan of Coun
cil Bluffs , W. A. McIIenry of Denison , J. M.
Dinwiddio of Cedar Haplds , and J. 1C.
An invitation was also read from
ths secretary of the National Bankers asso
ciation to appoint n delegate to their con
vcntion , to bo held In Chicago , September 0
and 7.
Hon. E. H , Thaycr , president of the Iowa
State Koad Improvement association of
Clinton , read nn interesting paper on tlio
subject , "Good Heads and How They Effcet
Our Financial Condition , " Hn opened by
making the startling statement that < 2T > 0- ,
000,0 < U ) would not cover the annual loss each
year as the result of the present system of bad
roads. Of this amount at least $8,000,000 Is
contributedTJy the state of Iowa to the mud
king. When a man's house is burned down ,
ho is a loser , but the brickmason , carpenter
and ( plumber are gainers. The money lost
through bad roads , on the other hand , is a
dead < loss , no ouo receiving the slightest ben-
cflt from it. Ho cited the fact that every
state In the union Is now agitating the sub
sis of butter roads ns un indication
that the present system is n earing its end ,
He ] considered the expenditure of the road
tax in the present manner a dead loss , for at
the end of 1,1)00 ) j ears the roads would bo no
better than now. The plan was suggested
borrowing money nnd securing it by long
time \ bonds , thus obtaining the necessary
funds with which to build good , permanent
stone roads. Ho devoted considerable time
to ( showing that it was often advisable
to ( go Into debt for the purpose of
making improvements which would pay for
themselves a thousand fold in added pros
perity. He quoted the testimony of It. G.
Dun & Co. of New York in n recent report ,
to the effect that thu present hard times und
financial crashes arc duo more to slow col
lections 1 , caused { by bud roads , than to any
imperfections ' in the monetary system. Mr.
Thuyer held the closest attention of the convention - ,
vention throughout his address.
M. B. Hutchinson , cashier of the First .
National bank of Ottumwu , read a paper on
"Iowa Bankers Their.Duty to the Business
Interests of the State and to Each Other. "
The president then announced that the
plans of the citizens for thu entertainment
of the delegates this afternoon had rendered
it advisable that the morning session bo
prolonged a little and the afternoon session
correspondingly shortened. The llrst ad
dress of the afternoon session was accord
ingly read by F. E. Wettstcin , cashier of the
First National bank of LaPorto City , on the
subject of "Tho Young Man in Banking. "
Quito a largo proportion of the delegates
was composed of young men , and the ad
dress was full of interest.
At tlio Afternoon
At the afternoon
session resolutions were
adopted . exptcsslvo of thanks and apprecia
tion for numerous courtesies , including the
presence I nnd address of ex-Comptroller
Lueey , Mr. YiUcs of Omaha and other
speakers. Thanks were given to the ir-uyor
and citizens of Council Bluffs , to the motor
line , to the press , etc. , etc. ; in fact , a "thank
you" all around. Great cnro was taken to
avoid 0J any committal -upon any of the
financial J questions of the day. The only
discussion evoked was upon a simple resolu
tC tion t providing for a change in the manner
of electing officers , the reform being to the
effect that hereafter the ofllcurs should DC
IC elected directly by the association , instead
of being nominated by a committee.
The proposed change was adopted by a vote
of 27 to 23.
The following were chosen as officers for-
the ensuing year : President , W. A. Mo !
Henry of Denison ; first vlco president !
Simon Cnssldy of Des Moines ; vlco presl *
dents , J . , W. Garner , Columbus Junction ; F-

of meeting ,
State Auditor McCarthy's Address.
The addresses of the afternoon were very
interesting and practical as well In many %
their suggestions. Hon. C. G. McCarthy ,
the auditor of state , prefaced the reading fty
his address by a pleasing tribute to this city ,
i ml especially to the school for the deaf
located here , and which ho declared to be
one of the grandest of all the stuto
institutions. He urged the bankers
to make a personal inspection
of it before leaving the city , both for their
own entertainment , and also for their information
mation us to the wonderful educatory work
being done hero. Ills address .van upon
"Thu State and Savings Banks of Iowa , and
the Growth of Laws Kclatlng to Their Or
ganization. " Ho spoke of the ease with
which uny organization , however fraudulent
in its nature , could become incorporated ,
u it bout the stuto having ui > y con
trol over it. Many people thought
that becatisu a company advertised
itself as incorporated that it was therefore
endorsed by the state as responsible.
Hencu It vtuti easy to dupe the Innocent ,
louulaw in this respect was defective
I'hu laws were also defective in regard to
banking and other financial institutions.
The auditor was made bank commissioner ,
but his rulings were subject to review by
the courts and the law was often so doubt
ful or deficient , that It was difficult for such ;
an oftlulal to act intelligently and promptly.
The law in regard to capital stock should
so changed us to compel shareholders to pay
up In full , Instead of paying in some small
percent of their stock , and then advertising
to thu world u large amount of cap-
tal stock. If the capital stock
needed to bo increased it could be done In a
legitimate way , Instead of by a series of as
sessments. ' 1 ho law in regard to tlio liabili
ties and duties of bank officials and directors
should also bo changed so us to afford more
protection to stockholders und depositors.
All other financial Institutions , savings and
building associations , etc. , of whatever
nature should bo under state control ana
sublect to state inspection. Then the publto
could bo Informed as to their real condition ,
Thu weaker organizations could bo made to
strengthen themselves or go out of business.
The present feverish condition of financial
circles should cause all moneyed institutions
to be careful about speculative enterprises ,
aua thus keep ibviuielicn ia condition to
glvo needed heln to legitimate nnd perm.v
nert commercial enterprise * , preventing a
possible panic.
Auditor McCarthoy then gave an Interest
ing statlKtlcal review and showlnr of the
growth of savings banks and state banks In
Iowa Mnco 1875 , nt which tlmo there were
only n Inctecn savings banks , wfth a total
capital of $7Hi.OOO and total liabilities and
assets of W,501,000. In 1810 tlio number of
savings banks had increased to 101 with A
capital of $ .1,304,000 and total assets of $32-
753,000. In 1373 there were twenty-three
other banks In Iowa with a total capital of
about $1,000,000 and assets reaching nearly
1,000,000. In 18W the number of such banks
had increased to 141 with a capital of $7,430-
000 and assets of $20,747,000.
n Pusoj- Speak * .
Tlio closing address of the day and of the
convention was that delivered
by ex-Con
gressman Pusey , the well kiVbwnand pioneer
banker of Council Bluffs , who gave some
very interesting reminiscences of the early
day , narrating them with the usual vigor
and eloquence which over marks his
public addresses. Ho digressed a little from
the subject assigned him , but this was
( lonablo as the Incidents which ho so thrlll-
Ingly pictured were of more than mere local
Interest. Ho told of the visit of Abraham
Lincoln to Council Bluffs In ISC'.l. At that
tlmo Mr. Lincoln was accompanied by the
then secretary of state of Illinois , Mr.
Hatch , and these two gentlemen In company
with Mr. Puscy nnd N. S. Bates ,
took a carriage drive about
the city. On reaching "Look-out
Point , " on the bluff near the present resi
dence of Lucius Wells , they alighted nnd
walking to the edge of the seeming precipice
took in the grand view of bluffs , bottoms
and river. The details of the conversation
as told by Mr. Pusoy wore very Interesting.
Mr. Lincoln was greatly Impressed with the
beautiful scenery , but still more by the outreaching -
reaching and Just-developing west , the very
gateway to which seemed to lay at his feel.
The talk was about the proposed building of
the Union Pacific , and the provision in the
law which made it the duty of the president
to ilx upon the terminus on this side of the
river and within curtain bounds.
"Perhaps , Mr. Lincoln , you may be elected
president , nnd It may bo your duty to deter
mine this location , " remarked Mr , Puscy.
To this Mr. Lincoln made no reply , but
stood with folded arms in contemplative
mood until ho suddenly burst out with ,
"Nature seems to have made that bottom
there and the Platte valley , just to build
railroads on , doesn't she ! " Then ho
continued , "By the way i no
ticed coming on the boat that
you have a little river which is called the
Weeping Water. Do you know If I was a
member of the Nebraska legislature the very
llrst thing I would do would bo to. Introduce
a bill to change the name of Weeping Water ?
You know up In Minnesota they have a river
which they have very appropriately named
Mlnnohaha , the laughing watcnC Tsow , I
think they ought to' change the name of
Weeping Water to something more appropri
ate and pretty , change It for instance to
Minneboohoo. "
Unculn'ilona rnrm.
Mr. Pusey narrated numerous other Inci
dents of Mr. Lincoln , among them beinc the
fact that on this same visit Mr. Lincoln ,
while in the ofllce of Mr. I'usey , pulled out
of his pocket an old , greasy paper , and
asked If they wouldn't sco about Its being
lllcd for him. It proved to be a land war
rant issued to him as a captain in the Black
Hawk war. Wo askedihim why he had not
entered the land before , and he said that he
had been keeping it to show his boys that ho
had a war record. After some other line
humorous remarks ho loft it with Mr. Pusoy
to locate the land. Ho did so for him in
Crawford county , near the homo of the
newly elected president of the Bankers as
sociation. About a year ago the noted son
of the martyred president sent word from
England to sell thu land , and the 100 acres
were disposed of.
K In 1803 Mr. Pusoy had the privilege of
meeting President Lincoln in Washington.
Mr. Lincoln insisted on his sitting down
and talking over Council Bluffs. "He
inquiied about some of those whom ho
had mot on his visit here Judge
Baldwin , Mr. and Mrs. Bloomer ,
and Jocosely asked If Mrs. Bloomer
still wore oloomcrs. Stepping to where
hung a map of the Union Pacific and the con
tiguous country , ho placed his finger on the
point where he tiaa stood in 1859 , and said ho
should novcr forget the impressions made by
the scene which nature had spread before
him. Knowing that Mr. Lincoln had nn
interest In some lana near the pres
ent location of the Union Pacific trans
fer in Council Bluffs , I suggested
to him that this property would surely bo
enhanced in value , and ho would make well
by it. Mr. Lincoln shook his head. Ho said
that a Mr. Judd was Interested In that land
with him , and that ho was so certain that
ho would be elected president , and would
have to determine the location of the termi
nus , that ho had Judd take the property off
his bauds , so that it might never bo said
that ho had made a single dollar by his de
cision , or could impugn his motives in the
slightest degree. "
Driven Through the City.
At the close of the afternoon session the
delegates left the opera house for another
trip about the city. A motor train took
them to the corner of Eighteenth street nnd
Avcuuo A. where they found a special
train of Burlington coaches standing to
take them out to the new bridge. After
looking the ground over they returned to the
city und took a run down to Lake Munawa
on a special train which Maor Reed of
Manawa had fitted out for them. Thus
ended one of the most enjoyable conventions
the association has ever hold. The exer
cises of both days were noticeable
on account of their interest for
outsiders as well as for the bankers ,
and the citizens who fulled to attend missed
a great treat. The Council Bluffs bankers ,
headed by C. H. Hannan , deserve great
credit for the manner in which the arrange
ments were nuido and the details of the con
vention carried out. The delegates leave
for their homes carrying with tnom many
happy memories of their stuy here , and the
citizens of Council Bluffs have the same
feeling towurd them.
A Massachusetts paper , speaking of r f
the lecture of Rev. J. II. Armstrong , in
"The Stuff Men Are Made Of , " sayn it
could not bo commended too highly. His
words and gestures beautifully express
the deep thought , the strong reasoning
and originality of the speaker. The elo
quent speaker will appear at the Broad-

Ilium Innuranco Compnny Arrested.
A sensation , which has been brewing for
some days past , culminated yesterday morn
ing in the arrest of J. Q. Anderson on the
charge of breaking open mall which was not
intended for him. Mr. Anderson Is the sec
retary and ono of the principal stockholders
in the Council Bluffs Insurance company ,
and the complaint was filed in the United
States district court by Henry CofTcen. who ,
until last Tuesday , was a stockholder in the
sumo company.
Coffcen's action , according to the state
ment of ono of the directors of the comtuny ,
is the result of malice , pure and simple.
Coffeen came into the company a year ago
last November and was appointed treasurer
at a salary of $1.000 per year.
From the start three was considerable
friction between him and Anderson ,
who had been with the company a long
tlmo , butcvery thing went along without any
open rupture until a few days ago. A couple
of weeks ago ColTecn demanded an increase
in salary of $200 per year , but it was refused.
There was a meeting of the directors at
which It was decided that if Coffecn wanted
to go on at the old salary , well and good ;
otherwise , ho could leave. Ho left.
The other members of the company had
been doing a little qulot investigation on
their own hook und 'learned thnt Cofteon
enraged , as they claim , nt the refusal of the
directors to increase his salary , had retained
the services of 1 an attorney and
was about to commence an action to have
a receiver appointed for the company. They
also learned that ho had been to Omaha and
had a conference with iStato Auditor C. G.
McCarthoy In which ho asked him to take
hold of the company and wind up Its affairs ,
alleging that it < was Insolvent.
The state auditor himself is
responsible for this tastemoiit but
whonj Coffeen. was asked about it denied
even having been in the auditor's oftlco. In
order to prevent Coftcon from making any
further efforts to b'ringiabout the dissolution
of the company the 'other members bought
out his stock , paying him a largo advance on
the actual value.
Coffeen then dcvotcfl hfs attention to
making things warnigfor Anderson , whom
ho blamed for the actionof , the directors In
refusing him his demaritl for extra pay. Before -
fore leaving the city Coffeen told Anderson ,
so that gentleman states , that ho expected
some mail from Mollne , III. , with refer
ence to some insurance business ,
and authorized him to open it.
By mistake Anderson opened a letter
which proved to bo from a woman at Carroll ,
Ia. , and Coffeen immediately Jumped at the
chance of opening ; v hornet's nest in close
proximity to Anderson's ears. When Ander
son was arrested on the charge of violating
the United States law ho immediately went
before ComuiinsionerJ. J. Stendmaii , waived
examination , and was bound over to the
grand Jury , his bond being fixed at $1,000.
With regard to the insolvency of the com
pany , the members assort that the charges
mudo by Coffeen nro entirely without foun
dation. They say that Coffeen was ready
ana anxious to boom the company if they
would raise his salary $10 per month , but
when ho learned that theyswould not raibo It
ho suddenly discovered that the company
could not pay its losses. They claim that
the company was never in any better shupo
than It Is now , us the stock formerly held by
Coffeen is to bo taken up at once by well
known Council Bluffs capitalists.
