AFFAIRS OF SCRANTON
BANK WOUND UP.
On May 25, 1889, It Closed Its
Doors Assignee J. H. Qunster So
Carefully Managed the Affaiis of
the Defunct Bank That Depositors
Have Received the Face Value of
Their Claims at the Time of the
Failure of the Bank Amounts De
positor Will Now Receive.
On May 25, 18S9, the Sciautoii City
bank closed Its doors, being unable to
pay the claims of tho depositois.whlch
amounted to about 1235,000. The Mine
day Joseph H. Qunster was appointed
assignee and after nearly twelve years
of constant labor he has practically
wound up the affairs of the bank.
Tho repoit of Attorney It. J. Mutiay,
who was appointed to audit the final
account of the assignee, was confirmed
finally by the court yesterday and the
money will bo distributed at onco by
Mr. (lunster to tho credltois of tho
bank, neatly nil of whom weto depos
itors. The careful niannor In which Mi.
Ounster conducted the affairs of the
defunct bank Is shown In tho fact
that while the property of the bank
Inventoried only $J09,323.27 after the
falluie, ho realized J2J1.79J.41 for the
creditors of the bank after deducting
till expenses Incident to the closing
up of Its affaiis, Including his own
Not counting Intel est since the time
the bank became Insolvent the depos
itors have been paid about the entlie
face value of their claims at the time
of the failure.
ASSHTS OF HANK.
When the bank closed its doois and
Mr. Ounster was appointed assignee
the court named J. H. Tot ley, John
P. Kelly and M. 13. McDonald as ap
praisers. Their teport showed that
the assets of the bank amounted to
J209,;l25.27. Mr. Ounster at once began
the tedious tnsk of turning the assets
into cash for the henellt of the cred
itors and on May 14, 1S94. tiled his first
and partial account.
At that tlmo the claims of the cied
Itois with interest from the tlmo ot
failure amounted to 2'4,70G.5y. At
torney Joseph O'Brien was appointed
to audit the account and upon the
confirming of his tepoit $218,017.20, or
83.85 of the creditors' claims was div
ided. The report of Mr. Murray conllrmed
yesterday allots to each ci editor HG.39
per cent, of the balance of his claim.
The entlie amount now in the hands
of the assignee awaiting dlsttlbution
Is $14,332.1C. After deducting the cost
of the audit and other exienses there
Is left the sum of $13,175.21 to pay the
present indebtedness of the bank, $30,
204.32, which leaves u balance of $23,
129.12. The bank has no means of
meeting this. All of Its resouices nie
now exhausted. -Mr. Murr.t's report
shows the amount due each depositor
and: the amount they will receive un
der his audit. The tepoil follows:
