An Institution That Was Involved In

KILBURN IN POSSESSION
Tho Superintendent of Banks Closes
the Institution Because He Does
Not Consider It Safe to Do Busi

By Kxcluslte XVIre from The Aisocialtd Press
Buffalo, July 2. The Nlngaia bank, a
state Institution, has been closed. The

V. l. Klllnrn,
"upcilnlendinl of Hank.
Mr. Kilbuin, when asked why the
bank had been closed, said;
"I closed this bank because I think It
is Insolvent. The main reason for the
failure Is the failure of the City Na
tional bank. The Niagara bank Is In
volved in that to an extent not yet to
be nnnounced. I do not deem It safe to
penult It to continue bitislness any
longer. As to xxhether the Nlngaia
bank has been In trouble heretofore I
have nothing to say."
The Commercial says;
Siipetlnleudent Kilburn, of the dale hinkliir
department, found aoio.ip other thlns'S that the
Niagara bank was carrjlnir the pipers In eoneerns
lu which It president, P. II (itlttln, was In
terestctl to the extent ot flbO.OOe). That flit
mleht not liae been considered in any way fit Al
to the sobencv nf the Institution if the CII)
National bank hail not fulled.
'Ihe City National bank, according (o a state
mint made this mnrniiur, hail loaned different
concerns in which P. II. firlfhn was Interested
uii.oiinls to I lit extent of $I0U,O0O. The failure
of the City National under the burden of paper,
which the comptroller of the currency claimed
represent! d injudicious loans, tnken In connection
with the fact that one of its heaviest dockholders
had borrowed fiom the Niacin bmk neirl
twice the amount of the capital stock of the lat
ter institution, baxing It with its mirplus entlrel
wiped out, condnccd superintendent Kilbuin that
the Niitnri bank should be closed.

that Pentisj Ivanla had been picked as

xvhetteel the appetite of the thousands
