has just been made publii|
Preaident Charlea E Cross and Cashiet
Samuel E White have absconded with
. 649.000 of the bank’s funds, and have
I fied to Canada It is believed that they
have rehypothecated large amounts of
the bank’s paper in New York, aad that
the total loss will reach 6900,000, aod
possibly 6350,000.
When the news of the trouble was
known to the beak directors, a speclai i
meeting was held at a late hour. The
Uft qnarterl^ atatement of the bank,
made in February, ihowed that there
were 6305,000 of deposits subject to
check. It was shown to the directora
that tbe sum due depositors wai 622,000
dua the Park Bank of New York 6611,-
000;duc two banks here. 61-1.000. II
was shown further thot the bank ought
to have the following assets: 6^.000
in notes aad 675,000 in mortgages on
real estate. How manyof the notes were
rehjrpothecatcd is not known.
The defaulteri left 615,000 in cash to
deceive the teller. Both White and
Cross had lately been in Canada ostensi
bly on the busineu of the bonk, ^th
hu also been in New York. On Thun-
day they asked a bank at Richmoud and
a bank at Baltimore to tend them6l0,000
each, saying they would give drafts on
the ^rk Bank to cover this smounL On
Friday night they got620,000 fromthi
banks by express. White got it
never put it in bank at all. On 8ati
afternoon both men laft, At Oreensboi
they were seen on Sunday morning, i
A conductor who knew both well re>
marked: “You two look like you were
bound for Canada." That was the last
seen of them. i
The bank was closed with a notice that
it was closed by order of the directors.
The State had 614.000 on deposit of its
general fund, and 63,500 of a fund for
the deaf and dumb and blind iostitu-
tios. Recently 66.000 of money from
tbe Hatch bill for the State Agricultural
and Mechanical College been de
posited there by W. 8. Primrose, presi
dent of the trustees of that college.
People far sod near have been bitten
hard by the failure. Itstruck all classes
here. People have great confidence in
tbe other bonks in the city, aod there
was DO run on them. Both Cross and
White were connected with the church,
tbo tatter very prominently. Cross was
young, and was for yean a clerk in the
State Auditor's office. He bad been
E resident of the bank two years. White
ad been cashier ever since tbe luiok was
established, nearly tvtcuty years ago.
Tbe bank's capital was 6'20'o,(100.
