MONEY, WHO'S GOHHE Banks and Business Houses Keenly Feeling the Shortage in Currency. . No Panic Probable," However. .. , .There is no.denying the fact that the operations . of the New York stock gamblers have seriously effected the money market, so far as it concerns the immediate' delivery of currency.' Local batiks and produce dealers are already feeling the conditions, and results that may be fully as disastrous a s those of the last panic. The conditions today are, however,, different from those of th*. panic ot '93. Prices seem, to hold reasonably high, labor is omployed at good wages and the demand continues excellent. The entire cry seems to.be, "Where is the currency?" Cashier Sutherland, of the Clare county Bavings bank, gives his view of the%ituation and of the causes which baive l0d to the present stringency, asfollows: "The banks * are lending no aid pr encouragement to the present condition, in fact every bank of standing in Michigan is do- ibg its utmost to avoid thai condition whice the people seem to look upon as inevitable. There is bo shortage of money in the country, and tbe only reason for the present situation Js the result of conditions in the east, whioh have come about from reasons well known to every reading person," The immediate condition |s entirely attributable to the decision of a large number of our farmers and smaller dealers to keep their ourrency at home. I would gamble that if the privilege might be granted me to make a careful search of the homes of Clare county I could find 8100,000 stowed away under the beds,'behind tbediessers and in other out-of-the way places. There is nothing in the present situation which should alarm the farmers and business men, if those holding the currency will place it where it can be utilized to carry on the demands of business A financial system which permits and makes possible this condition of affairs is peculiar, but the condition exists and there is nothing to be gained by howling 'Calamity' and keeping the currency of the natioD stored in the family stocking bag." Cashier Sutherland informs The Courier this morning that advices from the Citizens Savings Bank, of Detroit, are to effect that currency is again plentiful, all orders will be honored. A Saginaw bank this morning expressed the savings bank a large quantity of currency without order, which indicates that the supposed alarming condition is without foundation. The Citizens bank also reports equally as satisfactory a condition with reference to currency, hence whatever alarm which might have been felt in this vicinity has been dispelled. HELLIi HAL. ]» AND McCABTHY CO. £>in iinnAiti WiUUW Opera House, Kovember 11-12 OVER THE HILLS TO THE POOR HOUSE. Wiiiiam Jt Brown, After Three Days in County House, Passes to His Eternal Rest. the For more "than twenty years William A. Brown, strove to. make for himself a competence, and the best days of his life were spent In the vicinity of Clare. ' He owned different farms in tlie community immediately east of the city, and, for a time appeared to be accumulating sufficient property to provide for his needs in declining years. He reared a large family, seven children now living. Troubles of various character in his later years seemed to have partially unbalanced his mind, aud his children found him a burden. His last illness was of connparatively recent date arid the old man had no place to call a home. He temporarily stayed with Mr. and Mrs. S, J. Ramey, -Of Vernon, but the burden was greater than reason could expect a friend to" assume, and last Saturday Mr. Brown was Bent to the county house at Harrison. Tuesday morning he died, without a friend of his former days or a relative present. The remains were brought to Clare on Wednesday and were interred yesterday at Cherry Xirove The conditions surrounding the demise of this old man are such as to make humanity wonder whether there is such a thing as filial affecr tion left, and. whether there is-arty wonder that after a life of activity many lose interest in and desire for further existence. iiATiAri miiM. !A!\t NUlllit! '} Big Bunch of Hunters Gone North Glare and Isabella Counties. from It is devoutly to be hoped that the florists will not grow richer because a large number of Clare and Isabella sportsmen havo gone north in- search of venison, but should any of them return accompanied by .mourning friends it will not be because of the carelessness of their companions.
