The examiner's comments upon the above
estimate am as follows :
"A majority of the loans depend for tholr
value upon leal estate securities , the guar
anty of the American Loan and Trust com
pany and thn capital stock of the Omahn
nnd South Texas Land company. Their
real value can only bo ascertained after fore
closure , silo or other process of collection.
The bank ofllclils maintain that all assets
other than furnlturo nnd Jlxtures are good
at their face valuo. The estimated stuink-
ngo was llguicd by mvsolf by valuing assets
nt usual values of their clrss and allowing
for dopicclatl&n caused hy the present
stringency and the closing of the bank hold
ing and handling the assets. "

TOPF.KI , July 25 The strlko situation In
the Cherokee district is regarded as so sorl-
ous by Governor Lowolllng and his ad
visors that cloven companies of mllltla have
boon ordered to hold themselves In readlnos *
to move on three hours' notlco.
The orders were telegraphed by Adjutant
General Artz , by direction of lieutenant
Governor Daniels , who Is the major general
of the Knnsis mllltla , after a conference of
three hours with Governor Lowolllng. Iho
lieutenant governor arrived from the scene
of the strlko early last evening and was Im
mediately closeted with Governor Lowell-
Ing , to whom ho mido a full report of the
situation as ho viewed It. The governor de
cided that troops would probably bo needed
and turned the command over to M tjor Gen
eral Daniels , with Instructions to act as his
Judgment might direct. Accordingly Gen
eral Danlols Issued the eiders placing the
eleven companies under arms. Hy noon
word had boon received from the captains of
all the companies Included In the order that
their men vvoro under tirms and loady for
I.owolllnR KdopliiR Postoil ,
Governor Lovvolllng , In order to bo moro
fully advised and to be posted as events
progressed , last night sent F. J. Close ,
his private secretary , tfl Weir Cltv with
orders to report from time to time by tele
Lieutenant Governor Danlols stated this
morning that ho regarded the situation as
\crycutlcalandthat It might bicak out
at any time into violence and bloodshed. Ho
hopes that Sheriff Arnold will bo nblo to
piesorvo order with his force of nrmod dep
uties , but thov are so few , compared w 1th the
stilkors , that it would bo an unequal con
test should the two foicos come together.
Lieutenant Governor Daniels submitted
his report In writing to the gov
ernor tonight. Ho rehearses the
diffoiencos between the minors and
operators which caused the strike and says
that ' the dispute now hinges on a dtffoionco
without a distinction. The minors say they
are willing to go bick to work at the price
per ton regulated by the pay they wore get
ting before the change in the Ri.ieon law.
The operators say tnoy are vv llling to pay the
same price per ton that they were paving before -
fore the change In the law- . Lieutenant Gov
ernor Daniels says this diffoionco ought to
bo arbitrated without difllculty and lecom-
mends that tlio governor take stops to bring
" \Vuriu AH 1'iirtlos to the Strlko.
Continuing , the report siys : "At the
same time , as the situation thcro Is so criti
cal as to render a conflict Involving serious
consequences liable at any moment , I would
suggest that a proclamation bo made to no
tify all parties that the state administration
will not condone the violation by law by
either side ; that the sheriffs are expected to
protect all interests as required by law and
their oaths ; and whenever tno forces at their
Immediate command are not ample- for the
purpose the state authorities are ready to
respond Immediately to thnir call for aid. "
The report discourses ujion labor troubles
in general and sajs they are duo to vicious
legislation , inspired by capital and against
labor , and concludes as follows : ' 'But the
methods by which these wrongs must be
righted , by which labor must bo restored
to its constitutional rights and to its God-
given position , must bo by constitutional
ones , or our Institutions are not only ready
to crumble , but republican ecnernmcnts in
the world , for the piesent , at least , are
Negroes from Alnbniim I'ut to Work.
WEIU CITT , July 25 Just before daybreak
this morninp n train of six cais > vas backed
into the enclosure around shaft No. 3 , of the
Keith & Perry mine near Scammon , and 347
negroes from Alabama and Colorado wore
unloaded inside the stockadn. Of these
sixty-seven were women. All but sixty of
thomonwcio from Alabaiui , having bocn
gathered at Birmingham Saturday night.
Ihoso from Colorado claim to bo furnace
men who know little or nothing about
mining. Many of them claim to have como
on the icprcscntations of the operators that
they were to work at Columbus and not in
the strike pits and they talk of leaving.
There were over 500 men and women on
the train from Uiuninglmm , but half of them
wont to Lltchlleld , whuio they wore taken
into the stockades of the Kansas and Texas
All of the Alabami negroes are armed .
most of them with now Winchester rifles ,
though some have nimy muskets. They are
of all ages and some have never woiked in
mines before. Hoio they will live In tents
within the stockade. At noon they were
drilled and put to wotlc.
ng A Surprise to tlio Minors.
The arrival of the neeroos surprised manv
of the miners , but they say very little. P.
H. O'Donnoll , who acts for Piosldont Waltois
in hU absence , says there will bo no trouble.
Shci HT Arnold has 100 deputies in and around
\ \ oil City.
A secret meeting was hold at noon by the
Illinois About 200 attended. O'Donnoll
assorts positively that all the Missouri
mliiois will go out August 1. No action of
importance was decided upon.
Among the negroes at Litchflcld a great
deal of dissatisfaction Is prevalent , and if
they could get bick to their southern homes
they would start at once. Several of thorn
who brought their families are without
money and uio foicod to work. Most of
them are of the lirnorant , superstitious class ,
who take most every thine for a bad sign.
Tbo men at Litchlleld are quiet and not
much trouble Is expected.
