tho Houso of lionreBontutiven. lmrn
Just concludod an investigation into
yuo nnairs oi tuo f irst XSniional Bunk
at Washington, which was, chiefly
owned, by Jay Cooko & Co., and closed
iU doorj on thelglh of lust Soptora
ber, wbon that concorn lod off .in tbo
punio yhich 80 seriously disturbod
confidencB and.orodit. ., '.,,. .- .
The capital of this bank was JS500,
000, and JLonrv D. Cooko. a momhor
of.the house ot Jsy Cooke 4 Co., was
it President. Tho bank and tho firm.
which woro substantially ono. ncou-
nicd tho snmo building in WuBhing
tOrlj (Jlrcrtly.ln front of tho Treasnry
Deptti'tmom. Tho First National was
B depository of pubno monoys, a finan
cial agent of tho Treasury in tho con
version of a portion of its bonds, and
i no ngontoi a largo number of national
banks tor tbo exehango ol mutilated
curroney,. to which it was indebted
1750,000 on tho day of the colliipso. ,
Those various rotations and tho in
fluences arising out of them wero util
ized, in flagrant dorlanco oflav, Treas
ury roguiutions, and good luith to de
positors and othor creditors, solely for
inu uuiieiit, ui jay tooito 8, VO., and 10
prop up Uiotr tottering tortunos when
ino crasn enmo, ln lact tho bank
was a contrivanco to attract public
ana private deposits, and a conduit
pipe to carry thorn into tho firm of
Jay uoolto & (Jo. Its Trcsidcnt took
the money out of the vaults of ono
and put it into thoso of tho other, and
tbon, after making this fraudulent
transfer, drow out about one-half of it
for himself. ,
According to tho CWonty-ninth seo
tlon of tho Nallftnnl Currency act, the
total liabilities of any person, com-
nany, corporation, or firm to anv na-
lionul bank for money borrowod. should
at no limo exceed ono tenth part of
the amount of tho capital stock acta
ally paid in. Consequently, if the
Cookc8 had owned tho whole stock
of this bank they could havo borrowed
out SJU.uuij. ln prcsenco of this ex
press and emphatic restriction, the
committee say thut from tho boi'i
nlng of its business, and tbrouuhou
tho whole onrocr of this bunk, no at
tention was ever paid to tbo limitation
itie report shows that Jav Cooko.
Co. not only drow out the entire cap
ibi, dui nearly as muclt moro. Th
figures aro worth studying. On the
lHth of September Jay Cooke & Co.
wero inaeuiea to ino Dank in tho su
ot f74M,iiou.ou in current acoount.
Tbcy also owed $100,000 as endorser
or tho Aortbern racifio Railroad for
loan moro than two vcars old. An
Henry I). Cooke, tho resident, was
indebted 8 19,078.42 on a noto which
dated back to January, 1808. Tho
total of theso various items is 8898
9;iJ.ll, duo by the Cookes to tho banl
at tho time of abutting un tho shon.
But this docs not tell the w hole story
oy nny means, lor mo irauduleitt mis
application of this money is traced
down to the very cvo of tho failure
when tho vaults were cleaned out to
aid iho overloaded and bankrupt firm
r . .. .. .
lXJiwccn mo isi oi August and the
18th'of Soptombor, tho current ao-
count ot Jay Cooko & Co. was
issued: by tho bank for 1185,400 and
cashod. On the 1 3th of Soptombor n
transfer order for 46,000 was puid.
On tho day of tbo failure there was a
Daluncs duo the treasury of 187.782
45. Of tho lust certificate! 1125,000
wont to Jay Cooke & Co., in Philadol
phia. When those largo certificates
wore oasnea at the l'reasury tho bank
was already indobtod for a sum much
largor than the Amount of securities
on doposit with tho Treasoror. "
I. It may well bo asked how it came
to pass that the Treasury made these
advances ot the piiblio money upon
tbe mere drafts of B bank which the
Socretary, the Tronsuror, and the
comptroller of the Curroney' must
oave Known was on tbe eve ot bank-
rnntovf ' Win '. tn
vokad from tbo White House, or who
is responsible lor tins criminal ouoncor
The committee shed no light on this
subject. They do not af.peur to havo
examined the witnesses who could tell
all about it, or to have inquired whoth
cr Gon. Spinner protcslod. as has been
alleged, against this daring outrage
when I he Socretary of tbe Treasury
uuiumunucu it to do aono, ' - .
Tho forty.fiflh section of tho Cur
ronoyuut provides that "the-Socre
tary of the Treasury shall require of
the associations thus desiirnatod satis
factory security by the deposit of
untied mates bonds and otliorwise.lor
tbo safe keeping and prompt pavmont
oi mo puullo money deposited with
thorn, nnd for the faithful performance
of thoir duties as financial agonts of
Government."
Mr. Richardson treated this pro
vision bs a nullity, and advanced the
pooplo's money to these speculators as
if tbore was no responsibility. In
stead of arraigning him for this un
lawful conduct before tho House, tbe
committee condono bis crime by say
ing that immediately after the failure
of the bank the .Secretary of the Trea
sury took effectivo steps, through
wnicn ne was enabled to obtain lull
and amnio guarantees and security by

' The Great Colorado Desert,
9. Senator Jones, of Nevada, has re
eeived a full report of the result of a
seioDtiuo exploration made at tho ex
penso of himself and a private citizon
of California, ' last' summer, for tbo
nnrposo of ascertaining tho practica
bility of reclaiming . or submerging
the groat Colorado donor t by turning
iniu ii, ma waters oi mo uoloraco
rivor or the Gulf of California. Tbo
report of J. E. Juntos,' the engineer
who conuuoiea mo expedition, and an
elaborate commentary upon it br U.
E. Slouch, an eminent civil engineor
of Sun Francisco, furnishes tbo fol
lowing very interesting information,
uiuun ui vt men is entirely now :
- The exploration shows that th.
greater portion oi the Colorado des
ert, and JUoiave valley and Death val-
Icy which lie north of it, ore from 40
to 100 feet below the sea, and that
this great dosort,! stretching from
Lower California to Intro county in
the Stalo of California, and from the
base of tbo const range mountains to
ino Colorado river, comprising an
area of about 300 miles long by 150
miles wido, may bo converted into a
chain of lakes . or . irrigated by the
method abovo mentioned, and also
that a Iarcro portion of this desert
really consists of extremely fertile
soil, being a deep alluvium suscepti
ble of the highest, cultivation.
It is further shown that tho nrcra.
lenco of whut aro known as sand
storms and hot desiccating winds and
the deficient rainfall, the evils suf
fered by the surrounding counlrr.and
as far north as the Tulare valley of
California, aro directly tracpublo to
tbo existence ot the desert from which
ns from a great furnaco, constantly
rises in tbe summer time, a vast col
umn of hooted air without appreciable
humidity.
