1 ho reason they glvo for not remitting us

without Just cause , nn Is seen by the fact
that the Philadelphia banks have asked
that no more drafts bo sent to them for colM.

'J'ho people will bo wiser If In such comparl-

First nnd foremost.tho collapse after twenty
years is ngnln following on the heels of wldo
mid universal speculation. Thoru nro shift
ing sands in thu llnnncial groundwork of
today , but the fabrics built upon them wont
flown for the mdst part lone ago. London ,
whoso operations were a source of terror to
the markets of 18T3 , is the foremost present
factor of support. The storm which pros
trated English credits nnd which sent up
1 ho Ix > ndon bank rate In October , 1873 , from
U to 0 per cent came Indeed to this later
iipoch , but it came and passed over to the
financial horizon thrco years slncn. There
nro hard pressed corporations now , as thcro
wrro then , and some of them have already
fallen , but their notes do not carry , ns they
did In 1873 , the full endorsement of scores of
powerful banking houses.

"Tho panic of 1873 , it is shown , caught the
two chief credit nations unprepared. This
j'ear each lnd : its house In order. There is
tin answer , too , in the history of 1873 to the
despondent query now so common , 'What is
to turn the tide ? ' The tide turned twenty
years ago as suddenly us the deluge of liquld-
ntlon had begun , The market first resisted ,
then steadied nnd nt length , within u month ,
returned abruptly to normal conditions
uiinply bocnu50 n point at lust waa reached
when financial reason mastered financial in-
ffinlty. Neither n repeal bill uor a sudden
renewal of gold imports served then to mark
the change , but liquidation simply exhausted
Itself , holders of money suddenly appeared
us buyers nnd with us little warning ns thnt
which marked Its beginning thu panic
It is now scml-offlclally stated thnt there
will bo no reorganization of the Erlo nrop-
orty , but that the not earnings of the next
tlireo years will bo applied to the paying off
of the floating debt , and this will prevent
reorganization and an assessment.

DKNVEII , July 20. President M. J. Law
rence of the People's Savings bank was nr-
rostcd at his oftlco in the People's National
bank block shortly after 2 o'clock this after
noon on a warrant charging grand larceny in
connection with the failure of the Savings
bank. The warrant was issued out of Jus
tlco Lambert's court and was sworn to by
W. M. Casey in behalf of his wife , Sophie
Casey , who is a depositor in the bank to tno
nmnunt of ? 1,800. The same warrant upon
which President Lawrcnco was arrested
nlso called for the arrest of Cashier F. C.
Shrndor upon the sumo charge , and ho , too ,
wns arrested before 3 o'clock.
The charge upon which the proceedings
nro brortghl is that the bank received n deposit -
posit from Mrs. Casey within thirty days
previous to the time of the failure. This is
nllegod to bo u violation of the stale law ,
nnd Is held by that law to bo prima facie
uvidcnco that the officials of the bank know
that the bank.was insolvent. This , under
the law , makes "tho olllcials liable to prose
cution for grand larceny. The punishment
for such offense is Imprisonment , for not less
than one nor more thnn ton years.
Mr. Lawrence was Interviewed immodl-
tituly after his nrrcst and , speaking of the
nffair , said : "Mr. Shrador and I have not
n thing to fear from developments. No olll-
I'lal act of ours regarding the bank can ro-
l ect upon our honor or good faith. I have
been in nctivo buslnbss hero sovnn years nnd
twenty-two year * previous in Cleveland , O. ,
r.nd I feel very conlldcnt that those who
know mo Intimately will await results before
passing Judgment. "
Hoferrlng to the statements issued yesterday -
. day by Assignee Shrador , which showed
that the liabilities of the bank were some
$1,200 In excess of the assets , President
Lawrence said : "Owing to a miscon
struction , the statement falsifies facts. A
complete statement of this bank win ho
published In nil the dnllv papers on July 27
by the assignee a's an advertisement , as re
quired by the statutes. The assets of the
liank will show nn actual excess ever
liabilities of ever $128,000 and n further
liability of stockholders ; o makn good all
deposits of $100,000 , which makes n total of
$228.000 of actual assets ever liabilities to
Bccuru depositors. "

NKW YonK , July 20. The failure of ono of
the old linns of the "street , " 11. 1. Nicholas
& Co. , was announced soon afternoon. In
point nf liabilities it wns surprising , the out-
htandlng obligations of iho llrm amounting
to $1,250,000. The firm assigned to William
Cromwell Nelson , no preferences. The fol
io ivlng statement was given out at the com
pany 'sottlco :
"Tho obligations of the firm will foot up
nbout $1,250,000 , They hnvo boon engaged
In a general stock brokerage business , dealIng -

DO realized upon at ' their Intrln-
lo value , will exceed their nubilities by iiit
least 18 [ < or cent , As these collaterals nro in
the hands of Hrst-class Institutions , we have
reason to hopa that they will not bo rashly
disposed of. The cause of the failure , iyni
goes without saving , was the ilnanclal
stringency , the call of loans and the inability
of the llrm to put up the necessary margins.
.I'lio latter inability was only in part tliolr
own , most of it being part of their custom
ers. ' The linn's outstanding contracts nm

SALT LAKE , July 20 , [ Special Telegram to

of this city , the1 largest commorclnl organi
zation in Utah , Issued n voluminous circular
today to merchants , manufacturers nnd
capitalists , cast nnd west , the Import of
vlifoh Is ns follows :
"Wo stand Immediately In the shadows of
n dancer which is aiming n fatal blow nt
the very basis of our development nnd pros
perity and threatens to sweep out of exist-
onc3 the industry on which nil of the Indus
tries depend in this region , It hns been
through silver mining that this region has
been developed to its present greatness , nnd
our coal mines , manufactures , farms , ranges
and commerce generally loan upon silver
us their respective source of profit.
"Wo believe that the action of eastern
financiers In their attempt to establish n
single monotnry basis nnd to destroy silver
-as money has been injurious to the country
at largo. It hns resulted In the locking up of
nil the money of this region. All mines huvo
been shut down. Already thousands of people
ple have boon thrown out of employment.
Factories have had to shut down and mer
chants to countermand tholr orders.
Last year the income from wool
In this territory wns $2,500,000 ;
this year H is only 50 per cent of
that sum. The coal output hns decreased fxH
per cent , nnd railroad tonnage In und out of
this territory 00 per cent. All this hns como
nbout fronf the fall in silver. Wo have
thousands of cnttlo in the territory and hun
dreds of thousands of shcop which cahTrot bo
marketed. Wo hnvo mngnlllccnt fruit pros
pects and vast quantities of grain which
cannot bo marketed because thcro is no
money to cither preserve or move crops.
Our products , our property and resources
are amply sufllclcnt to continue our prosper

no legislation supplemented which would glvo
standing to silver us money , would bo to us

WASIIIKOTOX , July 20. Comptroller Eckels
has broken over precedents again by making
public n part of the ofllclal report of D. A- .
Cook , examiner in charge of the Missouri
National bank of Kansas City , ns follows :
"This bank suspended on the 17th hist , ,
because of a run on the part of Its depositors.
There was nothing in Its condition to war
rant the run or to occasion suspicion as to its
solvency. It scams to have been prudently
mannged nnd ltd resources nro unusually
frco from items of questionable value , there
being no bad dobtu. The bank Is solvent
and should bo permitted to ro umu. The
depositors very generally express n ties Ira to
have the bank resume nnd promise every as
sistance In their power. The available as
! sets of 'tho bank runount to JUIH,283.'Jj ; its
liabilities , f70S.258.75. Th6 remainder of Its
resources consist of cr.sh nnd items readily
converted into cash. "
Tlio idea of thu comptroller In making this
statement public is to show the fallacy of
the theory that everything is going to ruin
because banks nro cloilng their doors hero
nnd there , If the people who have money on
deposit wcro not panic stricken nnd did not
join in wild und unjustlthiblo runs many
banks which are now closed would have re
mained open nnd bo ( inlng u healthy
bnslnoss , The comptroller thinks thafto
glvo publicity to such cases will show the
public the folly of being frightened without

A fair sized audience of colored people
greeted Mrs. M. H. llodgers-Wobb at Hartman -
man hall last night , where she criticised
Hon. John J. Ingalls1 position on the negro
question , -
The ex-senator , as well as Hon. J. F. Bur
ton of Wichita , Kan. , were somewhat
severely taken to task for their views.
She contrasted the position of these two
prominent men with the expressed opinions
regarding this question of lion , J , D. Woods
in un address on Decoration dayat Meridian ,
Kan. , nnd n similar ono delivered on the same
occasion by Govonlor Altgold nt Jorsoyyjile ,
111 , , bofora , to use her own words , ho
d'pardoned the anarchists. The lecturer
ascribed to Mr. Burton the expressions on
the fifteenth amendment to the constitu
tion as establishing the right of secession
and the supremacy of the nation only as
regards the negro race and thnt ho eulogized
Jefferson Davis , saying that his enunciated
doctrine was that the south had never been
whipped at all ,
Mrs. Webb paid her respects to the north
as u great nndimoral coward on this question
and contended that this sontlon had never
done Justlco to tno black race , which had
never neon diMoyalnsjAmorlcan citizens , In
contrast wilh anarchistic and Komnnlstio
The emancipation of the colored people
had only boon urought nbout by what she
termed ttu accident.
In her comments on ox-Senator Ingalls'
letter , she enumerated many men .of the col
ored race who had llllod , or were now tilling
high positions of trust.
They were the equals , if not Die peers , of
many of their white brothern , according lethe
the lecturer ; especially was this the case in
her own country , Jamaica. Loud applauio
followed this assertion.
If this was such a degraded rnce why wns
it , she asked , that 10 many husbands , tuugh-
ters , fathers nnd wives were found who o
complexion differed but slightly from these
of the whlto race when they declared they
could not look upon Iho negro without a
fooling of aversion.
Prejudices as they existed in this country
were not to bo met with in Jamaica , where
the most eminent in the counclU worn men
of pure African blood , England had given
nmnnclpatloti freely lo hot subjects nml no-
copied iho sltunllon ns ll wns.
Any Intelligent negro did not wish to bo a
white man ; existing prejudices were only a
> art nnd parcel of this nation. She cntt *
ionod the negroes lo bo llrm on election
lay nnd not soil tholr votes. Of eoursa the
negro hnd hli faults , Irit these were not
ovorwclghed by his good qualities. To bo <
