North 8ld# of the Square. The Little matter of 81,000,000 in Cash needed to pull it out of the Breakers other Banks willing to help it Bat the collateral not sufficiently Gilt edged a exciting run on a savings Bank which is solid. Kansas City mo., Jan. 20.�?the american National Bank of this City was taken in charge yesterday by f. E. Marshall a National Bank examiner for the state of Missouri. The capital Stock of the Bank is $1,250,000. During the Early part of last week it became known to the members of the Kansas City Clearing House association that the american National Bank was in need of assistance. A meeting of the association was called at which a Resolution was adopted assuring the american National Bank that upon a proper showing assistance would be rendered to the amount of 11,000,000 or More. A committee was appointed to be in readiness to act for tiie association. The collateral Wasny to Good. At a meeting of the Clearing House association saturday evening the committee was instructed to examine the Security offered by the american National Bank and ascertain the in count of Money needed. Sunday the committee calling to its assistance National Bank examiner Marshall examined the collateral offered As securities for $1,000,0 10 or More which the association agreed to loan. The commit tee reported to a meeting of the association sunday night that the collateral of Lared by the american National bunk were not such As the Banks of the association would accept. This decision of the association made the failure of the Bank inevitable and the National Bank examiner t Hereupon assumed charge of the Bank a affairs. Statement of the president. The president of the american National made the following statement yesterday afternoon the american National let Ank experiences a heavy shrinkage in business and deposits during the recent Long continued and almost unprecedented Stringency. Our shrinkage was especially great on account of the Large volume of country business handled and this was made More conspicuous by the fact that a few months ago we had several Large temporary deposits. During the past ninety Days we collected considerably Over a million dollars and paid off deposits amounting to nearly two and a half millions or about 00 per cent of our entire Deposit. About two weeks ago we reached our lowest Point and since then steadily recovered and last thursday morning to had an excellent showing and were in easier condition than for nearly two months with every Prospect of continued improvement in spite of the last that certain malicious rumours had been industriously circulated for some time among our depositors and correspondents. Publicity caused a Stampede. A Little later among other things a Clearing House meeting was called without our knowledge and the Olhorn Banks voluntarily offered us assistance if needed. Unfortunately this meeting Liec Rae publicly known causing increased rumours which resulted in a run Friday and saturday and we then applied to the Clearing House for the Aid which they had offered but not being an incorporated organization they failed to agree upon a plan of assistance and consequently we were obliged to a Loso. To close up such a business in these times will necessarily involve Groat sacrifice but there is no doubt that deposits will to paid in full and if the assets Aro properly handled the stockholders should get Back a Large part of their original investment. Deposits largely reduced. No statement of the amount of the liabilities of t he Bank has Ilieen made. They Are estimated at $2,250,000 liabilities $3, 500,000 nominal assets. The principal stockholders of the Bank reside in the East. The deposits of the Bank Are about $1,200,-000. Since oct. 1 last the deposits have decreased from Over $4,000,000 to the present amount. It. Is ascertain i that the Bank owes Over $300,000 borrowed Money. Bun on a savings Bank. As a result of the failure a great Deal of uneasiness Lias been created among the depositors of the Kansas City Safe and savings Deposit company which is in the same building with the american National Bank and was supposed by Many to tie connected with it and there was a tremendous run on that institution which is the largest savings Bank in the state and whose officers Are the most conservative business men in the City. The crowd around the building at eighth and Delaware streets steadily increased and both streets were blocked. An anxious multitude. Many were present out of curiosity but there were hundreds whose Pale faces told Why they had hurried from their work. A cordon of police was stationed about the door and had great difficulty in keeping Back the crowd. About 1 of clock the crowd was a dressed by a. J. Snider a wealthy cattle Man and sex mayor Davenport who advised them to lie moderate and withdraw. They stated that the Bank would pay All depositors Dollar for Dollar and if it could not do so itself the other Banks of the City would help it out As soon As necessary. The depositors reassured. When the savings Bank closed its doors yesterday afternoon the Large number of people who still surrounded its doors were somewhat reassured by the following notice pasted on the Glass a payment of deposits will be result no cd at the Bank tomorrow morning at 0 the Bank is legally entitled to sixty Days notice lie fore required to pay time deposits but All deposits have and will lie paid in full on presentation. There will be a saving of $20,<ni0 to the Bank in accrued interest which depositors have forfeited. Still crowding the Bank.

To Aoge flits in five More hours of oratory Anil a Lull not through nothing hone Iii the House except approve tie journal a the Ramil investigation takes a fresh Start but develops nothing very interesting Senate republicans i it gift Liler caucus. Washington City Jan. 30.�?the democrats continued their policy of delay in the Senate yesterday and further evinced their intention to talk the election Bill to death. George who Lias spoken several times already on the Bill again got the floor As soon As the election Bill came up and spoke for live hours. He began with a statement of political methods of apportionment in Connecticut As compared with Mississippi. After exhausting the subject in Connecticut he took it up m the state of new York from which he said although it was a democratic state of the popular vote but one Democrat had been sent to the Senate in Twenty years the apportionment being so arranged As to give the republicans a very Large majority in the legislature. Imposed for a punishment. After a statement of the action of tie several states on the subject of negro suffrage i after it had been imposed on the South George remarked that in Michigan Ohio Illinois and Wisconsin the question had let eur submitted to the people and had been rejected by Large majorities thus showing that while the i Mij it be of those Northern states would not have it for themselves it Wae Good enough for Tho Southern states where there were ten Twenty or 1 1 1 negroes for every negro in the Northern states. George quoted from Tho views of uis Tiu gushed Jiapu Licaus in the reconstruction period As to the incapacity of the negroes to exercise the right of suffrage and insisted upon it that negro suffrage was imposed upon tie Southern Jie Ople As a measure of punishment for their rebellion and for party Pur it of is. Quotations from Triail Stevens. He i Ead extracts from speeches of Thad Stevens Garfield Boutwell Fessenden and Sherman to show that it was known and acknowledged at the very time that the right of suffrage qua conferred on the negro that he was unfit to exercise it. Quot and yet Quot said George a we have before a to Day a Bill to consummate the ruin which or. Garfield said to were Rushing on a Bill to consummate Tho punishment which or. Stevens said to deserved. In the shape of negro George yielded to Hoar who moved that Tho a in summent yesterday to till 12 o clock Tori by in order to give senators who desired to attend tie funeral of or. Bancroft an Opportunity to do so. Agreed to. Hawley asks some questions. Hawley recalled a statement made by Walthall some weeks ago As to soveral counties in Mississippi where most of Tho offices Are held by negroes and asked George whether it was True that in those counties the negroes were doing Well and were governing themselves. George replied that As fun Senden had said they could not do so unless they acted under Good advice. To would however turn the question Over to his colleague. Walthall said that in not one of the counties referred to had the negroes Tho taxing a sewer. But in All of them the negroes hold offices that were consistent with the safety of Public and private interests. Hawley then please let them vote for Mem Bers of Congress. That has nothing to do with local government or taxing towers. Hue Point agreed upon. Walthall they do vote for me meters of Congress. And vote Itea Celily. In Tho very District in which these counties All but one Are situated there has teen a contest going on in the House Aud it has teen Given out to All the newspapers that the Republican committee on elections could find no ground on which to make a report Adverse to the sitting member who is a Democrat. Hawley then it is settled that in several 0 unities in Mississippi the negroes can vote and have their votes counted without danger to the democracy Walthall if that be the condition it ought not to be disturbed and there is no necessity for a Force Bill. George resumed the Flat a it a and explained and justified his own action in regard to the suffrage clause in the Constitution of Mississippi. After having to liken five hours he yield Ixl the floor without having concluded his tie ecu. Same thing in the House. Obstruction resorted to there with a very Plain purpose. The tactics of the democratic senators is plainly being adopted in the House and the purpose is evidently to delay business with the ultimate object of defeating the elections Bill. This was made obvious yesterday when Bland demanded the Reading of saturday s proceedings in full instead of in the abbreviated form. The journal being Short its Reading consumed very Little time. Then Mills moved an amendment to the journal relative to a refusal of the chair to recognize his motion to reconsider the vote by which fridays journal was approved. Cannon demanded the previous question and was recognized by the speaker. A number of democrats demanded the Reading of Mills amendment and it was so ordered. Springer attack the speaker. Springer then took the floor under the Rule allowing forty minute Delia to after the ordering of the previous question and said that never before the first session of this Yongi Ess had a motion to reconsider a privileged motion been denied by the presiding officer. In the lust election he was pleased to say the honorable Toh Akcer Hail recognized the great principle of the right of the people to Rule. The speaker Bod said in a so Leech in new York that this was a government of the people by the people Aud for the people Etc., Etc. The speaker said he hoped the gentleman would give the House the Benefit of the Springer replied that he would print tha speaker s remarks in the record. Interpreting the election. Springer said the speaker had put wore the people of a question to lie considered his con duct in making his rulings which he had demonstrated As the turning aside of the precedents of i a years but which he hoped would tie the making of precedents for Tho next 100 years. This question had been presented to the american people Aud their verdict had been one of condemnation of the rulings of the speaker Rogers Rone to interpose a remark but Springer did not yield and the Sii Eaker with some sarcasm in his tones remarked that the gentleman from Illinois did not desire to be interrupted. Springer replied that he did not Deere to be interrupted by the chair but expressed a willingness to yield five minutes of his time to the speaker if he desired to say anything. Need quotes speaker Randall. The speaker made no response to this and then Bland criticised his rulings and when he was through speaker heed had several extracts from the journal read showing that Rau Lull when speaker of the House had refused to entertain appeals from his decision. Springer suggested that those refusals were made when the House was proceeding under special act the provisions of which would not be in Force after a certain time. The speaker replied that the lame ruling must is made in pursuance of the Law which provided that this Congress should expire at s certain time. Springer retorted that Randall had been governed by the Law while the present speaker was governed by his Awn will. Mckinley states the situation. Mckinley said that nobody would deny that the motion made saturday by Mills was purely dilatory and it was the duty of the chair to refuse to entertain it. As to the result of the election its result would be discussed before the people when the democrats had put in Public Law their own interpretation of their Victory the republicans would go to the american people of the issues thus made and let the people determine in 1tea which aide of the House should continue in control of the United state. There was not a gentleman he said on the other aide who would not declare that the whole a orphae of the filibustering tactics was to make it impossible to peas the elections Bill in the House if the Senate should pass it. Flower accepts the Isene. Flower we accept the Issue and stand upon it Mckinley i an the gentleman. I Mckinley and i want to say to the gentleman from new York that this Issue will not Down. Flowers it downed the Republican party. Mckinley you gentlemen secured Power in the House of representatives by Tho suppression of the votes of thousands and hundreds of thousands of citizens. You May have a temporary Victory now and then but the party which stands against an honest ballot and an honest count cannot Long and permanently hold Power in this country. K. B. Taylor of treasonable always in effect and nearly always in purpose and Breckinridge asked what remedy the minority had when unlimited debate was shut off. To this Taylor replied the same remedy As if the Bill is passed none at All. Thus the whole Lay was consumed in approving the journal. The Raum atrocity.

The matter was finally dropped and after the introduction of a number of Bills the elections Bill was taken up and George addressed the Senate in opposition to Tho Bill most of Tho session of Tho House was take up by political speeches and assaults upon the speaker by the democrats for past rulings.
