The Salmons for many years have boon
among the most prominent men in Mis

better known than Major Harvey V. Sal

since then been connected with the bank

politics. He was elected State Treasurer
on the Democratic ticket in 1S72 and

The bank of Salmon & Salmon, which
was one of the oldest and oonaidered for
many years one of the strongest in the
state, failed on June 21. The Institution
was owned by Major Salmon and his
brother. Dr. G. x. Salmon. The failure
caused a sensation, which increased when
later it became known that Cashier Ca

who practically had complete charge of

While the bank had deposits 'M. about
$086,000. and Us loans amounted to I6S4.0W,
only $0000 was found In the institution's
