j The einliezzui 'iit of some ?7l0. UM
from the Flrt National Itank of
New York, gave a terrible shock ' to
Onancial circles in th metroixHis of
the nation: but when rive public read
the reoort f Mr. Alvorrs Vexttava-
gant habits for tlie Jast five years or
looie. there will lie Utile sympathy
felt for the officers of the institution
irp-'wi whom. -f he disgrace or this large

Mr. Alrord h:d a palatial 'home on

The First National Itank is one of
the strongest institutions in New

When th national banking law:
was enacted, it . was most unwelcome
to the tinancial etkntres of rue country.
Tlie old state banks had few re

WILL CROKER WIN?
I will tell you what is the para
mount Issue, said Oovernor Roose
velt in a speech In Xew York a few
evenings ago, "it Is Bryanbun in the
nation and frokerism in the state."
Said Kryaii In his speech at; Cooper
Union hall. New York, N. Y Oct. 10,
1!K)0: f;teat is Tammany, and Croker
is its prophet.
Said Richard Croker a few days ago:
"My , "advice to I M'nMK'ra tie , voters
tlie ctmntry over is to congregate about
tlie polling places on the evening of
eh ct ion da j-, -ouut nosos and then if
the election returns (or Rryan don't
tally with tUer count, to co; into the
oolling plaes and throw the fellow in
4 barge of the returns" Into the street."
Tliere Is uo tpiestion coiioeruiutf the
alliame lN'tween Rryan and (,'ioker.
Now, do the American ieofIe want
Tammany methods at Washinetou?
Oo they want a I'resldent cKctHl by
the use of fund-i that are levied on
New York's .vice? li; they Want to
encourage methods of lawlessness and
violence, encouraged and a Ivbwsl by
Rlchaml Cioker, wlio lias grown enor
ii'ousl.r rich ou iKiHtical spoils who' Is
more corrupt 1 ha 11 IVtss Tweed in his
nalmlesi days? - 1 , .
Would tlwt tin other Males liavlng
great cltie had tlovernors like Tlieo
dure llo?sevelt, wlw aid-at Rochester
upon Wlng;shown Croker's 'statennnit
advIMn r".ot and meant what be said:
"Mr. Croker mciiis notto understand
that if this incitement to Hot and moli
violenco at the ioIIs should Iiear fmit,
he would 4e an accessry lifore the
fact. The election laws, like all tb4'r
lawM. apply mo Mr. Cioker if?d to er-
ry'one ele, !aml Mr. Croker land erery
one else must and will ohty tln-in."'
Th Statesman will bulletin the elec
tion returns in full on election nlglit,
across the street from tlie otllee. By
virtue of the assistance if certain of
our Salem friend, the ctowds waiting
for. the returns will - toe entertained
with living pictures by tlie rita scope.
If the weather is stall propitious, we
predict that Commercial street will be

.The duke was, it is sajd. offered

that time the little Duke of Blenheim,
the "l-year-o"d heir to the Marllxiroush
millions, was ill; and ' the duchess,
who is a very devoted inotlier, would
not allow him to accept. Rut uoav it Is
different. The honor of the position
appeals to her; and site is gratifietl at
her husband's ambition to " shine in
the service of bis country.
Ever since her marriage of four
years ago the duchess has been a
prominent figure in Ixmdon. She wore

slie gave a sum of hiowy never be
