S A Kean Co bank founded in 1800 and known for many years throughout the country as the Preston Kean Co bank with branches iu New York and Boston announced its suspension after business hours yesterday Mr Kean who is the only surviving mem ber of the company sent a statement to tlie press last night to the effect that the bank would not open its doors in the morning and stating that it would be im possible for him at the present time to Make any statement regarding its assets and liabilities other than that he felt con fident all its creditors would be paid in full Inngh on Small Depositors Other Chicago bankers some of whom are intimately acquainted with theaffairs of Keaus bank say that the failure will be a very bad one so far as its limited number of creditors is concerned and that it is hardly possible that it will realize much if anything The creditors are con fined chiefly to small depositors and in vestors who placed their money with Kean Co for investment in stocks and bonds in which the bank did a considerable brokerage business handling bonds of many small western cities Anutliur Case of Speculation Kean it is said has been speculat ing considerably ou his own account and in much deeper than his limited capi tal justified The recent depreciation in almost every character of stock and secur ities in which he was dabbling and the prevalent stringency in the money market crippled him so badly that he was unable to keep his hear above water Yesterday afternoon called on a number of capi talists and banks aud implored them to help him tide over his troubles Money Was Stringent with Him A conference was held at one of the the ianks at which bankers who had pre viously aided him were present but after listening to his statement they decided not to jeopardize their money by coming to his rescue The failure cuts no fly u re whatever in financial circles here The bunk Wiis not orgfiniztul under the national law nor did it do any business through the Chicago clearing house but was simply private concern transacting1 its clearances through tho Corn Exchange bank NO UNION WITH GLADSTONE So Long its Ho Stands for Home It ill e Suys Jo Chamber la in LOXOOV Dec Chamberlain in a speech at a private Unionist caucus iu Birmingham last night said that within the past week certain former friends in the Gladstonian party had reopened negotia tions on the ground thafc tus Parnell had rendered home rule impossible a reunion of the Liberals might be effected He hat replied thafc such a step was impossible because Gladstone fondly clung to the de sire of his old age and retained borne rule in the fore front of his programme An AJHuricu That Mipht Be Made Chamberlain doubted anyhow that re union would ever be possible with the men forming the Glaclstonian majority But recent events had opened the eyes o the moderate Gladstoueans who might co operate with tho Unionists and Conserva tives in the formation of a truly national party of progressin the truest sense of the word NOT IN THE USUAL STYLE OLD HONESTY iiv THE VOTE ON APPORTIONMENT Jfumber of PtmoeruKH Holp Put the Hill Throtijh WASHINGTON CITY Dec spite ot the fact that the

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
