city iwas resumed this morning with
renewed vigor, and as a result the Old
Oerman National bank, with a reputa
tion for stability of twenty years'
standing, the equally reputable State
National, and extremely strong Peo
ples National, failed this morning. All
night depositors stood In line in front
of the German National, and by 9
o'clock there was a long) sea of faces
stretching down the street. At the
opposite' corner, where the State Nat
ional has so long done business, was
alo a crowd of anxious depositors.
Here people were relieved of doubts,
when at 9 o'clock a notice was posted
on the door that the bank would not
open, owing to the lack of ready cash.
At the Oerman National, Just before
opening time, a notice was posted on
the window-stating that the doors
would be closed temporarily- This no
tice caused a distressing scene. Men.
and women down the long line, broke
out In tears and walling. A run on all
the remaining banks in. the city was
renewed. Reliable people; however, say
there -will be no more suspensions.
Bank Examiner Adams this morning
took charge of the Union, National,
Commercial National, National Bank of
Commerce, State National andOerman
National banks. A number of minor

Denver, July 19 Senator Teller, In
an interview upon the financial situa
tion in, this city, says: '"There is no
one reason to which the trouble can
be charged. It is partly due to silver,
but more to the general depression af
fecting the entire country- The bank
failures yesterday were unwarranted,
and were directly chargeable to. the
people who became frightened and
panic stricken at a shadow. There's
nothing les fair than to blame all our
Ills to silver. It would be much better
to blame soma jof it to the silver
speeches." Teller expressed the be
lief that the Sherman Jaw will be re
pealed, but not without a substitute of
greater Jjeneflt to silver.
