The separate answers of the First Na
tlonal bank of this city. Ernest E. Hart,
president of the bank; John J. Splndler,
cashier of the bank, and Ernest E. Hart
(Incorporated) were filed yesterday In the
district court In the suit brought agalnet
them by Oeorge F. Castle of Brltt, la.,
one of the allcRed Mabray "Mikes" who
claimed to have been fleeced out of 15.000
on a fake horse race In this city on Sep
tember 22, 1908.
This Is the first answer filed by the
bank, and Its officers In any of the sev
eral suits brought against them by the
Mikes." who claimed have been vic
tims of the Mabray gang. Consequently,
this Is the first time that the bank and
Its officers have made public their aid.;
of the story of their connection with the
alleged victims of tho "swindling syndi
cate." The answers in 'he other suits yet to be
filed, while they necessarily will vary
somewhat as to details, will, according to
the statement of Harl ft Tlnley, attor
neys for the bank and Its officers, be
substantially the same.
On behalf of the hank and Ita officers,
specific denial Is made or any connection
or confederation with the persons named
In the plaintiff's petition, namely J. C.
Mabray and his alleged associates, or that
they were engaged In or had anything to
do directly or Indirectly with the allegsd
swindling gamra or devices for the pur
poses alleged tn plaintiff's petition. What
ever transactions the bank and Its offi
cials had with the plaintiff were solel,
of a commercial character, as occurs dally
In the course of regular business.
