State corporation tax. The Germania and

Bills in equity were filed yesterday by
George "W. Guthrie, Esq., on behalf of the
Germania Savincs Bank, the Dollar Sav
ings Bank and Silos 2J. Benham againbt B,
U. Mercer, George Y. JIcKee and Daniel
HcWilliams, County Commissioners, and
Albert Conwell, Assessor of the First
The bill of the Germania Savings Bank
states that the County Commissioners have
notified Assessor Conwell, of the Second
ward, to require all persons to make a
return to him of the amount of their de
posits in the bank, and on their failure to
do so to estimate the deposits and make a
return to the County Commissioners.
They will levy a tax of 3 mills on the depos
its and 50 per cent on such deposits as
are not returned Dvtbe depositors as required
by tbe act of Juncl, I8S9. The bank is also re
quired to make a return of all mortgages, se
curities, etci, held by it, for the purpose of tax
ation. AI.Ii THAT ISXXCESSARY.
They claim that they pay a State tax on the
capital stock of the bank, as required by the
act of June. 18S9. which is all that is necessary.
Further, that the act followed out bvtbe
County Commissioners is unwarranted and in
conflict with the constitution. Thev ask that
an injunction be granted restraining tbe
Assessor from carrying out tbe provisions of
the act and tbe Commissioners from levung
tbe tax. Tbe capital stock of the bank is 5150,
000, and tbe amount of tbe deposits S1.5S9,
AKOTHEB INSTITUTION- OBJECTS.
The bill of tbe Dollar Savings Bank makes
substantially the same claim as that of the
Germania Bank. It has no capital stock, but
they hold that the act of June 1. 18S9, is uncon
Ftitutional. and ask for an injunction against
the Commissioners and Assessor Wilson,
of the First ward. Tbe deposits of the
tank amount to J12.351.679 36. They retain
$1,036,281 57 in cash to meet tbe requirements
of the business, and tbe balance is invested.
The total assets of tbe bank are 13,390,960 93.
Tbey state that they do not now know the resi
dence of all of their depositors, who number
Su.799, with an average deposit of $404 78, many
of whom do not even live in Pennsylvania.
Silas N. Benham, tbe third plaintiff, is a de
positor in the Dollar bavmgs Bank to tbe ex
tent of J0.CS5 12. Assessor Wilson made a de
mand on hiin for a statement as to his deposit,
lie asserts tbe unconstitutionality of the act,
and also asks for an injunction.

A Sad Experience.
Many poor people are now lamenting the
day when they placed their hard earned
means in institutions that they supposed
safe, and were rudely and suddenly brought
face to face with the stem reality that the
fancied security had vanished, and with
it their capital. Many peonle to-day
are risking their valuables in banks and
other places that assume no responsibility,
when, at a small cost, they could keep them
in a place that is undoubtedly safe, and
have them entirely under their own control.
To all such a word or advice is given. At
