false report was Inaugurated today and up
to noon hundreds of small depositors had
withdrawn their savings. The run was
caused by an unfounded rumor that gained
circulation yesterday and spread among the
employes of various manufactories In the
city. An art store on the opposite side, of
the street had been seised by the sheriff.
A passer by remarked to a friend that "the
art store across from the First National
bank has failed." Someone within hearing
caught the last part of the sentence and
told his friends that he had heard that
"the First National bank had failed." The
rumor spread rapidly. A small number of
depositors applied at the bank yesterday
afternoon and withdrew their money. Long
before the regular time for opening tho
bank today a large crowd of depositors
gathered in front of the Institution. To
accommodate the people the bnnk opened

the crowd ot depositors extended into tne

the bank mingled In the crowd and suc

savtnga. All applicants were paid promptly.
Other banks of the city profered nsslstance,
but thoJr aid was not needed. While the
withdrawals were being made prominent
business men of the. city, to allay alarm,
made large deposits In the bank. The First
National Is one of the most prosperous
banks In York. It Is capitalised ot $300,000
and has $100,000 surplus. Its last report
shows resources of I2.379.4M and deposits of
$2,287,109. The First National is a United

acceptable to the state.

It begins to look as it Judge Munger
will overrule the motion of T. J. Mahoney
to Instruct the Jury to return a verdict
for the defendants In the case of Anna
Connell, against the Convent of Mercy of
Omaha. Mr. Howell, attorney for Miss
Connell, occupied much of Thursday morn
ing In combatting Mr. Mahoney's motion
on the ground that the Convent of Mercy
had entered Into a contract with Miss Con
nell to care for her and give her proper
sustenance while a member of that order,
and that the contract was good In law.
He cited numerous authorities In support
of his argument.
While not deciding the motion of Mr.
Mahoney, Judge Munger said in a lengthy
review of the case, ' shortly before noon
'Vows are a mutter of religious faith.
Miss Connell had a light to abandon these
vows at any time, but when she did so she
ceased to become a Sister of Mercy.y The
organization to which she was attached
by these vows are required as long as she
remained a member of the order to : give
her proper support. That is the part-of
the contract, which ' U given In conlderai
tlon of her vows. So long aa he performed
her vows as a Sister of Mercy "In regard to
poverty and . obedience, the organization
said tacitly to her. 'We will maintain and
support you.' It Is a contract that must
be observed. If, while she was a member,

to, and her health was Impaired In conse
quence, she Is entitled to recover. The
relation of the duty of the parent to child
applies In this case. A person has a right
to change his or her religion at any time,
but that does not deprive her of the right
of maintaining an action against the de-rendantsV-
As to whether this contract lies
with the Sisters of Mercy or a corporation,
my mind is- not yet clear, that Is not under
consideration at this time, but must be left

Judge Munger called the Jury In at 3:40,
and excused It again until :30 Friday
morning. Should the case continue before
the Jury, which now seems probable. It Is
ascertained that the defense will put on
about fifty witnesses, and the case may
continue through all of next week.
Weston found Allen loafing In the store of
Barnes & Williams and he submitted to ar
rest without any show of resistance-.
Until Informed by Sheriff Canning, Allen
said he -was unaware that his uliot had
proved fatal. He made no denial of the
i shooting and said he was glad to go back.
He said he had slept out in the fields two
nights and was tired out and every bone in
his body ached.
Thursday morning Coroner Brallcy held
an Inquest over the body of Lee Jtrrett,
who was shot Tuesday evening at Thirty
second and Jones streets. The Jury re
turned a verdlqt that Jarrett came to his
death from the effects Of a bullet fired from
a pistol In the hands of Leslie Allen.
Leslie Allen reached the city jail at 6.10
last night. He was placed In a cell and
the charge of murder was booked against
him. Before being locked up he expressed
himself as glad that he was caught. He
said, he would rather be in jail thun to
feel that he was being hunted. After the
shooting he lost no time in getting out
of the city. He crossed the East Omaha
bridge and spent the night In the streets
In the outskirts of Council Bluffs. Wednes
day night he slept In a hayloft In the coun
try near Weston.
He stoutly declared thut he did the shoot

put him out -ot the house after he
had had some words with his wife. This

The forenoon was devoted to .an Informal

following resolution , was . .unanimously
Resolved. That wo favor the utmost pub

vite the closest supervision of honest public,
officials, we favor such uniformity of laws
In the several states as shall safeguard the
Interests of the policyholders, avoid abusea
and take the public and policyholders Into
the confidence ef the management, and be
lieve that corrupt officials should be
firomptly punished. We believe the searvh
Ight of careful, competent and honest In

At the evening session, those present
adopted the following:
Resolved. That we are opposed to any In
terference with state supervision and con
trol of life Insurance companies, that fed
eral supervision Is not expedient, and wa
believe Is unconstitutional, and under ex
isting conditions we are opposed to it. V?e
endorse strict state supervision.
In support of this resolution we suggest
1. The suareme court of - the Vnlted
States has frequently held that interstate
Insurance is not Interstate commerce, and
therefore believe federal supervision as pro

cannot make thr.t commerce which Is not

2. Federal supervision Is Inexpedient be
cause It Involves years of expensive and
uncertain litigation, the unsettling of fixed
principles of the legal Interpretation 'of
policy contracts and obligations, and may
seriously impair the securities of lire com

eral laws now in forre In the several states
affecting life Insurance, and It refers to u
body which has never legllnted upon the
subject, a question whleh for fifty years
has been considered the sole province of the
8. If state supervision has failed through
the Incompetency of an Individual commis
sioner, this is an argument against taking
from the fifty state departments the author,

If a state superintendent can be venal or
Incompetent, a national superintendent is
subject to the same influences, and th

while the failure of one state official can

a serious phase and efforts were at once
exerted to recover the records y Omaha
Indian Agert Mackey, -but for a long time
his efforts wer-, futile:
St. Cyr had been employed .about tha
agency in some sort of clerical capacity.
Finally suspicion was directed toward him
and after a prolonged search tha records
wer found securely conceded In his house,
soma miles from the agency. The real ob
ject of tho theft ot the records has not yet
been developed, but it is thought at tha
Omaha' agency and about the ' federal
building the. motive waa either to destroy
them entirety or to secure a big reward
for their restoration:
Another motlvo is thought to have gov
erned- tha theft of the records ' in that
litigation relative to heirship allotments
might be confounded and questionable
titles maintained. However, shortly after
tha theft of the records numerous suits
were brought relative to land titles on the
reservation and many ot these are still
pending In. tha federal courts in one form
or tha other. Tha trial of the case is one
that will attract considerable interest from
land holders and lessees on the Omaha res-
ervatlon and some rather peculiar develop
ments regarding land leases up there will
be, given, publicity for the first time.
