the establishment of a new bank, the
present concerns going into liquidation,
and their paper being taken over by the
new bank at its valuation. Consider
bl opposition bas already developed
toward the proposition for the govern
ment to extend aid to any banking in

and what the result of this opposition
will be remains to lie determined. Th
Union bank still stands high in th
