It Is no wonder that the announcement
lhat note clerk Alvord of the First Na
tlonal Rank of New York had robbed that
institution of nearly ITW.MO start!, and the
bankers and financier* of tha? city. Two
thing* made It startling One was that
the stealing had been carried on through
a half dozen years or more without ex
citing suspicion of anything wrong, and
the other was the amount that was taken
The thought lhat presented Itself was
this: If a note clerk .couid steal from a
bank hundred* of thousands of dollars
und could carry on hi* peculations for a
sules of year*, what assurance was there
lhat many of the other linancUtl Institu
tions of the city were not being robbed
by employes or officers?
And It seem* strange that the chief of
ficera of the bank did not know that the
note clerk was what Is called a “high
roller." One New York paper contains th
i-sertlon that there are a doacn or mor.
nank cashier* In that city who are h- avy
bettors on the race*. Iroubtles# they ar<
straight with their respective banks, but,
j judging from the First National Rank
revelations. If some of them were getting
money tn Illegitimate way* the bank of
| t'rera would not know it R ink examiner*
never seem to discover anything wrong,
