ILLINOIS BANK IS CLOSED
Director of Peoria Natlonnl Decide
that Institution Shall Retire
WASHINGTON. Oct. 7. The comptroller
of the currency ha received a telegram
announcing that th Peoria National bank
of Peoria, III., ha closed It doors upon
the order of It directors.
PEORIA. 111., Oct. 7.-The Peoria National
bank did not open It doors today. C.
H. Bosworth has been appointed receiver
and will take charge of the bank's affairs
pending liquidation. This Is the result of
action taken by the board of director at
a midnight meeting.
When th news that the Peoria National
had been closed had spread depositors 'he
ban to flock Into the Dime Savings bank
In which Dougherty 1 a heavy stockholder,
and by 1$ o'clock the bank wa experiencing
a heavy run. At 1 o'clock the building waa
besieged by anxious depositor and
officials posted the sixty day sign. They
announced that the bank was to be kept
open until all depositors are satisfied.
In financial circles tt l not thought that
the bank Is tn danger as It ha $500,000 cash
Shortly after 11 o'clock thl forenoon Mr.
Dougherty came from the Dime Saving
bank, where he had been closeted with Mr.
O. J. Bailey and other gentlemen concern
ing the securities which he had deposited.
He went directly to th school board office
In the Library building, where he talked
freely about some phases of his affairs.
'Mr. Dougherty, have you any statements
yon would like to make concerning this
affair and it developments?"
"I don't know what more I can say than
what ha already appeared," he replied.
"I see by the paper that I am craty
(smilingly) and am broken down. I did
not know It myself."
"The putting up of securities Is construed
a a confession by many people, Mr. Dough
erty," was suggested.
'AH I have to say In that regard la sim
ply this: In putting up the securities I
have In Mr. Bailey's hands, It was not for
the purpose of extenuating anything, but
simply that I 'believe things will be shown
to be right and then the amount thus
doposlted is much more than anyone claims
the shortage to be. It has no reference
whatever to guilt or Innocence, and It was
farthest from my Idea In so doing that I
was tn any way putting myself or any one
etse In a compromising position. It does
mean, however, that neither the school
board or the Peoria National bank will
lose one penny."
The grand Jury Is still In session and Is
grinding out Indictments by th wholesale.
When will It end? 1 the question that I
being asked by Peorlans. The state' at
torney's office threw up a batch of about
forty yesterday and fcre hard at work t.day.
A report by th grand Jury 1 looked
for on Monday tn court circle, and then
the revelation that will follow can only be
conjectured by Peorlans.
At the state's attorney' office today tt
waa said that no Idea could be given upon
or where th Investigation would end.
'We are grinding out Indictments as fast
a th printers can print them," said State'
Attorney Scholes today. "I look for a re
port of the grand Jury about Monday."

TexOot the Letter,
Th letter tn full follow:
To Mr. J. A. McCall, President New York
Life Insurance Company The recant start
ling disclosures In regard to the manage
ment of the New York Life Insurance
Company, and particularly the testimony
of yourself and other officers of liio com
pany, given before the investigating com
mittee of the New York legislature, make
it my duty aa superintendent of inB'itance
for the state of Missouri to communicate
to your company the views and require
ments of this department, to the end that
the polloy holders In this state muy not
be defrauded of any portion of ihe divi
dends or surplus earnings that are justly
due them on the premium that they have
paid. . . I
The public has been very properly taught
by yourself and other officials of great in
surance companies that the funds of a
mutual company constitute a fiduciary
trust, held and administered for th sole
use of those named as beneficiaries, many
of whom are or will be widows and
orphans; and many thousands of people
have taken Insurance In your company be
cause of thl fact and the assurance that
every dollar of astrts belongs to the pol
icy holders. That any portion of th policy
holders' premiums, or profits on premiums,
could be diverted to political purposes or
other uses not contemplated when the pre
miums were paid in, and not consistent
with the avowed purpose of a life Insurance
organisation must be considered hv all
right-thinking people as a gross violation
of a sacred trust, if not" embezzlement as
defined by the statute.
This department holds, therefore, that
sll moneys taken by your order from the
treasury of the New York Life Insurance
Company and donated to any political cam.
palgn committee or to any legislative agent
or lobbyist for aiding or defeating legisla
tion, whether audited or unaudited on the
books of the company, were taken without
warrant of law or morals and proper ap
preciation of your responsibilities as trus
tees of the funds committed to your keep
ing, and therefore this department must
Insist that all funds so used by you and
your order, and particularly the sum of
$144,702,60, which amount you confessed to
ha'ing contributed out of the funds to the
republican national campaign committees
for the years im. 1 and 9o4, must be
replaced In th treasury of th Bald New
York Llfa Inurnc Company within th
next thirty day.
Notice Is hereby served upon the New
York Life Insurance company, through
you as It president, that unless this re
quirement la met, or assurance is given
that It will be met without unnecessary
delay. I a superintendent of Insurance for
the state of Missouri will proceed under
the provisions of section 1.073 revised
statutes of Missouri, to cancel or revoke
the llcene of the company to do business
U this stat.
There are many other transactions dis
closed by the InvestlKStlon now in progress,
particularly tha payments of large sums to
one Judge Hamilton, without any account.
Ing or auditing on the books of the com
pany and the occupancy of costly real
estate of the enmpany by members of your
Arm at a rental so low as to be prac
tically a gift of the property; and. also th
protection of a subsidiary cotnpfinv from
th loss of many thousand of dollars by
the use of policy holders' money, ss well
as the Immense and disproportionate ex
pense of the comnany in Its mad rush for
new business, all of which indicate the
grossest Impropriety and recklessness In
management and niav call for further In
vestigation and official aotion. But from
the facts already disclosed tt I evident
that tti interest of th !Hllcy holders of
the New York Life Insurance company, as
wsll a the public, generally, demand a
change In the management of the company.
Tbl department will, therefore, Ins'st that
a new president and Vice preHldnt and
finance committee be put In charge of the
affairs of the company as soon as Its hoard
of directors may be able to effect th
chance. Very repe'tf ullv,

that the Inspectors have purely ministerial
