Hippie committed suicide to avoid state's prison it was thought he was the leading thief but it now appears that he was the leading tool it was the Austrian promoter who got all the cash and what amazes one most is the enormous amount of the loot and the ease with which it was secured New York has been christened the paradise of thieves I admit that we might he belter than we are but if virtue and good behavior arc to be measured by opportunity we take off our three dollar and cent plug to Philadelphia and if oil the judgment day any of our ing friends desire to know our ad- dress you may

little Austrian who hardly knew our and who landed on our shore without a dollar to loot a great national jank that had eight thousand of seven millions ot dollars is The secret of this great loss lies in the loose method of conducting ness and as long as adhere to the old and rotten system which has so disastrous inst so long janks will be looted and failures will occur and depositors and ers will share the common ruin There is one startling fact in con- with bank or business ires not two per cent are caused by the dishonesty of new men the oilier ninety-eight per cent are due 10 over
