SECRETS OF BANK
Being Probed by Federal
Grand Jury Under Lucid
The federal grand Jury was lmnanel-
led In tne district court yesterday af
ternoon and immediately began fur-
ther Investigation of affairs in con-
nect on with the failure of the Capi-
tol National bank. Receiver Wlllough-
by was examined by the grand Jury
yesterday evening and Stuart Briggs
was questioned this morning.
Judge Panceaat In hi Instructions
to the grand Jury dwelt particularly
upon the alleged criminal features
connected with the failure of the Cap-
itol' National bank. He informed the
Jury that the Capitol National bank
under the terms of Its Incorporation
was possessed of a capital stock of
$100000 and that to one person could
bo loaned only 10 per cent of that sum
any loaning in excess of that amount
constituting an offense.
This offenre was not necessarily
criminal unless the person loaned to
was of bad financial reputation or a
known Insolvent. The Intent to de-
ceive or to defraud imistmve enter-
"l" "B 'n e' " w not crlm
inal. However mid Jlldee Pnnnnnat
a man is supposed to havo it reason-
ably clear knowledge of the result of
his own actions In a financial way as
t j whether loss was liable to result.
The court had been Informed that
excessive loans had been mado to ono
person and perhaps to others and loans
six or seven times in oxcota of the
proper amount as set down in the
statute. Those loans had In addition
been mndd to persons whose financial
standing waa known to be doubtful
and In some case bad.
The Judge spoke of one loan that
had been refused by the cashier and
accepted by other officers and blames
both borrower and bank officers.
The Judge said that criticism as to
the mildness of the banking laws is
unjust. They were in his opinion quite
stringent enough. The fault in so
many cases was the laxity of tho
proper officers to do their duty. The
first responsibility rests unon tim
grand Jury and it Is to them that the
people will look for any dereliction.
The Judge could find no palliation
for tho failure of the bank.
"Wnen the country Is In bad finan-
cial condition" said he "there Is per-
haps some excuse for failure of this
sort or when the bank Is not doing a
good busine.- In this Instance there
wo a moat excellent financial atmoa-
phero and Uie bank had apparently
been doing a large and manltold busb
HAY MAY QUIT
(By Associated Press.)
Washington D. C March 22. It is
almost a conviction in cabinet circles
that John Hay will not return to the
post of secretary of state. All plans
that are being made by President
Roosevelt and lis cabinet are based
on the expectation that Mr. Hay wlieu
he stepped on board the steamer for
Naplej retired from public life.
The reason for this expectation is
the condition In which those intimate
with Mr. Hay know him to have been
in when he sailed. He had expressed
a wish 1 1 retire from the state depart-
ment much earlier than last week. It
was at the president's suggestion that
Mr 1Iay decWed would
nouuee no decision until he had tried
the efficacy of the trip to the Mediter-
ranean. But none or Mr Hay's Intimate ex-
pect him to resume his dutieB and al-
ready there is speculatloa as to hi

as to whether the prejident will not

ator Lodge the premier of hi oablaet.
Out the chance are that Mr. Tart
would be elevated to the "prowler-

St. Petersburg .March 22. The Rus-
sian army in Manchuria is still to have
the services of General Kuropatkin
who Is considered by many in spite
Of his series of reversed the best gen-
eral and foremost strategist of the Rus-
sian army. Slukiv-g all feeling of per-
sonal bitterness because of his sup
pression and all the old time enmity
between himself and General Linevltch
In a patriotic desire to be of service to
the fatherland the former commander
in chief volunteered to remain In any
capacity with the army which he had
so long commanded. The tender has
been accepted by Bmperor Nicholas
and gratefully received by the new
leader of the grand army.
The change exactly reverses the old
order o'f affair when Kuropatkin wa
the supreme leader and Linevltch di-
rected the Flrat nrmy.
Authoritative news of this remark-
able step was known In Manchuria
much earlier than in St. Petersburg.
General Kuropatkin having paused
on his homeward Journey at Harbin
started southward on the afternoon of
March 20. amid a most remarkable
farewell from residents of Harbin and
sold'ers who are on the way to fill
out the ranks of the depleted army.
The send-off was a mere foretaste of
what awaits General Ktiropaikiu ai th j

of thousands or civilians and soldiers
gathered at the station and gave htm
