dnur championship boat race attracted a
largo crowd today. A stiff breeze made the

were in good condition. At the start Hanlon
shot to the front like a flash , and soon led
by a full length. Hoth men were rowing
about thirty-four strokes to the minute.
After the first half mlto OanJaur quickly
overtook Hnnlon and at the turn was load
ing by a full length , with Ilanlon apparently
out of It. Ho Increased his lead until a
quarter of a mtlo from the finish , when ho
stopped to wave a rcsiwnso to his cheering
friends. lie then made a magnificent spurt
nnd crossed the line an easy winner by
seven lengths In 10:53. : Hnnlon was twelve
second * behind and notified the stakeholders

a recent fight with Ocorgo SIddons ho sue-
coodcd In standing him off for forty rounds
nnd would no doubt have defeated him but
for the lattor's tricky llzhtlng and clover
generalship. The men are hard at work

Very Peculiar Situation.
NEW YOIIK , July 24. The banks reported
the condition as fairly easy and , to some ex
tent , bolter , Inasmuch as the demands for
accommodation wore light. The most nota
ble demands for assistance today were from
Ohio. Tho' calls for currency today were
Hijht. The subtroasury was debtor nt the
clearing house this morning only $118,000 ,
and that sura was paid In notes. What
caused the treasury officials to p.iy In notes
today Instead of gold , as they have done for
the past week ) could not bo ascertained , but
it was assorted the protest of the banks
through the press tlio inconvenient
method of settling the clearing house bal
ances in gold had caused them to see the ab
surdity of the practice. Tlio Indications to
day that a considerable amount of currency
was being received from some sections of
the country by the oanks In this city Is being
offset by shipments to other places. One
leading bank received ? IS3,000 on Saturday ,
while its shipments wcro not nearly so much ,
but on the ether hand there were some
banks on Saturday that shipped n great deal
of currency without any receipts to offset
those shipments.
Heavy .Slilpmnntn of ( Jitrroncjr Kxpontccl.
From the demands received today from
Ohio and some other places for rediscounts ,
it is bollovod that the shipments of currency
to those sections thU week will bo heavy.
In many instances during the last few days ,
gold has boon shipped to the country in
stead of currency , aud moro will probably bo
sent. The banks asking for the accnmoda-
tion are providing themselves against runs
as the wave of distrust sweeps over their
Speaking of the great number of western
banks which closed on Saturday , the presi
dent of ono of the largest national banks In
the city said today that ho believed that In
the majority of cases they were not failures , ,
hut only suspensions ; that they were ( per
fectly solvent and that they would resume
business again In a few days stronger than
Now EiiRlnml'H Situation.
The situation In Now England is attract
ing a great deal of attention now and
especially in the manufactories. At the
ofllco of "Watson & Gibson , 53 Broad
way , it was .said that sonic trade advices
from Boston were to the effect that money
was practically unlondablo In that city at
G percent aud stocks wcro being carried
at 4 per cent. "I consider. " said Mr. Gib
son , "the situation as regards the Now
England factories the most serious factor
in this market. "
The failure of the Milwaukee bank on
Saturday was very generally discussed in
this city today. The failure was not unex
pected by wide-awake bankers in this city ,
some of the most conservative of whom had
boon aware of its real condition for some
tlmo. Ono of those bankers said today that
the report that the failure of the bank was
duo to the failure of the Schlossingor syndi
cate was not true. This bank's failure , it
was said , was due to having ovcrloanod to
several parties with which the Schlessltigor
syndicate had nothing to do.

Several banks this morning reported their
inability to make collections in Philadelphia
or obtain payment ot the largo balances
they have to their credit with some banks In
tual city. Ono bank here has between ? 500.-
000 ana $690,000 in Philadelphia which it is
unable to obtain without recourse to
measures which would probably cause
trouble to the banks referred to
In that city. New York banks , as a rulo.aro
now refusing to accept drafts from their
customers on Philadelphia banks , except for
collection at the depositor's risk. In some
cases where merchants in this city have had
drafts on Philadelphia they have sent thorn
there by special messenger for special col
lection over the counter. This course , how
ever , involves trouble of Identification , and
when it has boon adopted a liberal commis
sion has had to bo paid for Now York ex
change currency not bolug obtainable. Ac-
? ording to the reports to the comptrollor.the
Philadelphia national banks wcro as well
supplied with cash 011 July 12 as wcro the
national banks of this city. Those reports
show that on that day iho.rcsurvo of the
national banks of Philadelphia amounted to
30. ! ? ) per cent of the deposits. It is a cause
of some wonderment , therefore , why the
Philadelphia banks should be so slow in
making the remittances to this city.

WAsntxoTox , July 24. Acting Mint Di
rector Preston this afternoon , In response to
his counter otlor , uurchased 50,000 ounces ol
silver at $0.0910 per ounce. There is no
prospect of purchasing the full quota ol
4,500,000 ounces of silver this month. Mr
Preston states that the department , if it
fails to purchase the full quota this month ,
will not make up the deficiency next month.
That is , if only 2,500,000 ounces of silver
are purchased this month the department
will not purchase tlio 'J.oOD.OOO ounces shorl
this month and the 4,500,000 , ounces next
mouth , the usual monthly purchase. Eacl

fiscal year thu aggregate purchase instead
of being 54,000,000 , may bo only half that

The exceedingly pathetic letter loft by tbo
unfortunate girl , and addressed to I1 rank
Doncckcn , caused many eyes lu Omaha to
till with sympathetic tears yostordav. Men.
who possessed hearts of oak , where pity seldom -
dom nestled , felt choked with emotion at
the pitiful eloquence of the communication ,
written while the hideous skeleton of death
looked over the shoulder of the dcspoudent
The letter sounds somewhat fam'llar to
all who have road Kider Hag yard's novel
entitled ' 'Beatrice. " The metaphor * uro
similar and the language possesses the sumo
ring ns that embodied In the farewell note
which forms a feature of ono of the chapters
of "Beatrice. " Possibly It was an Inspira
tion that formed a striking coincidence. It
may have been n sort of semi-plagiarism ,
but , nevertheless , Iho last letter of poor , devoted -
voted Hattie Aldrlch appealed to many
hearts in this city yesterday.
Struggled Aniilntt Fato.
The history of the girl since she has boon
In Omaha shows that she has been as much
sinned against a4 she was sinful.
Hattie was the older daughter of a wid
owed tnothnr who is only In moderate cir
cumstances and whoso homo Is iu that pretty
rural Iowa village known as Maploton.
Hattie came to Omaha several months ago ,
and , being somewhat unsophisticated bccamo
an easy victim to the oily tongue of a tempter.
At ono time she was accused of receivlnc
goods stolen frdm Bell's drug store , but on
Investigation it was proven that the goods
wcro given to her as presents from a youmr
clerk who was an admirer.
She was not only pretty , but extremely
attractive , and n brignt conversationalist.
She made many friends. Not being used to
hard work and being of limited moans , she
ilualiyylclded to the temptation of a man of
means , who supported her for a while. She
tired of the life she was loading and the
kind hearted police matron , Mrs.
Cumings , secured a place for her
in n respectable family , where she
had a pleasant homo and was respected for
her worth. She remained in her now homo
for two mouths and then took a room in the
Mandcrson block. It is hinted that she did
so at the suggestion of ono whom she
thought really loved her. ,
She was infatuated" with this man
and the intensity of love and
nature of which she is capable is
shown by the desperate means by which she
sought to end her troubles. Not being able
to have the undivided love of the man whom
she loved , she made the sad sacrlllco of Sun
day evening iu order that ho might enjoy a
greater freedom and not bo menaced by her
presence on earth. She did not blame him
for her troubles aud sought relief in the
Hundreds of people filled with sympa
thetic curiosity viewed the remains in the
morgue yesterday. The trirl had not lost
her beauty of feature and form , oven in the
cold embrace of death. Fully 500 people vis
ited the morgue yesterday to see her.
Flowers from it Kuthor.
One touching incident occurred during the
afternoon. An elderly , well dro. sod man
with snowy hair , asked permission to lay a
handsome bunch of fragrant white flowers
on the body. The request was granted , and
the old man with moistened eyes
withdrew from the gaze of tbu > curious
crowd. Attached to the llowors was a card
with the following inscription :
"A Stranger , with sympathy. From a
father of an only daughter. "
A Bnu reporter who witnessed this touch
ing tribute hastened after the gentleman
and asked for an explanation. The
man "refused to give . his name
but said the dead girl reminded
him very much of his own beloved daughter
who has a happy homo In an eastern state.
Ho had read the account of the girl's death
in TUB BKII and her plaintive letter had
deeply touched bin. Ho wanted to do
something to show his sympatfiy , and bought
the flowers to place on the unfortunate girl's
body. Ha said that ho would
appreciate any such attention to his daughter
if cruel fate had decreed the same ending for
her. Ho was much affected as he thought of
how Uattlo's mother must foci over her
daughter's tragic doath.
Letters from the girl's mother showed that
a deep bond of sympathy existed between
the girl and her sorrowing parent.
But flattie had concealed her shame from
her dear old mother.
The remains will bo quietly Interred in the
silent city of the dead in Maploton Thurs
day and the last act in the girl's sad career
will bo closed.
