Against Bcatty Condemned
at Depositors' Meeting.
DENVER, Aug. 12. President W. G.
Brown and the other officers of the closed
Western State Bank were arraigned in
the criminal court today on charges of
larceny in having received deposits when

asked for a continuance and Judge Ma-
lono gave them two weeks to prepare
their answer.
Suit was filed today in the District
Court by Edith M. Raymond, who asks
that H. Ml Beatty, assignee of tho West

tuted. The plaintiff has an open ac
count of $515 and a cashier's check for

securities of every character found by
the committee cave uromise that depos
itors would receive dollar for dollar and
that the affairs of the bank could be
wound up within a year, provided litiga
tion did not ensue. It was the opinion
of the committee, however, that deposit
ors or stockholders, if they could be held
liable, might have to meet tho expenses
connected with assignment, but that In
SO days the bank should pay a dividend
of 25 per cent. In six months 25 per cent
more and be closed In a year.
When he had concluded reading the re
port of the committee, Chairman Guy
Leroy Stevick offered a resolution ex
pressing confidence in tho ability and in

requesting his continuance until sufficient
cause Is shown for his removal, disap
proval of all litigation Instituted for the
purpose of bringing about the appoint
ment of a receiver and Indorsing assign
ment proceedings as the best method of
promoting the administration of the'
bank's affairs. The resolution was adop
ted without dissent.
