Kansas City. Dec. 1. It was ru
mored at the stock yards this afternoon
that Grant C. Gillett, the absconding
cattle kins, had been captured in
Mexico and $100,000 in cash recovered.
The report is generally discredited.

day charging Gillett with having ob
tained $19,500 by false pretenses, xoe

oflicer and the latter left the city to
night. M. A. Fike, attorney for the
Holmes company, tonight made this

American soil, that he has a large
sum of money in his possession and
that his captors are negotiating with
his creditors here to exact a stated
percentage of the money as their price
for turning Gillett and the funds over
to his creditors.
It was stated quite positively her
tonight that Gillett was under arrost
at Chihauhau, Mex., but the state
ment could not be confirmed and at a
lato hour the Journal received a dis
patch from Jefe Politico, published at
Chihauhau, stating that so far as
known Gillett was not in custody
Ueneral Shatter Is Annoyed.
New York, Dec. 1. General W. R,
Shafter was today shown a copy oi
Admiral Sampson's report on the op
erations of the United States fleet at
Santiago after the destruction of the
Spanish fleet, in which the admiral
denounced the suggestions which he
attributed to General Shafter, that
the navy was unwilliDg to assist the
A.Antf-k t Via
army in lorcing an euirnum u ."
General Shafter did not conceal the
fact that Admiral Sampson's criticisms
annoyed him greatly.
"This controversy has been iougni
over before." he said. "The records
sneak for themselves. My letters and
disnatches to Admiral Sampson as
toll the storv. I
have nothing to add to them.
The treneral went over the news

INVESTIGATORS RETURN HOME.
Their Experience With Witnesses Is of an
Washington, Dec. I. A majority
of the War Investigating commission
arrived here today after a visit to
New York and Boston. Ex-Governor
Woodburv and Dr. Conner were left
to conclude the work in Boston. The
commission will resume its sittings
The commissioners are anxious to
secure a statement irom uenerm
Brooke covering his connection with
the Chickamauga Park camp and they
are hopeful that he will return to this
country to testify. The returning
members report that it was very dim-
cult to secure witnesses in either New
York or Boston, the persons summoned
generally manifesting a disposition
not to press charges.
Rostom. Dec. 1. The hearing of
tbe War Investigation board was con
tinued today. Dr. Edward H. Brad
ford of Boston, who superintended the
landing of troops brought to Boston by
the vessels of the Volunteer Aid asso
ciation, was questioned about the case
f Lieutenant Tiffany, it appeared io
be the doctor's opinion that had Lieu
tenant Tiffany been sent to a pospital
instead of being given in care oi hia
friends his life might have been saved.
Being an oflicer and on a furlough
when he reached Boston, Lieutenant
Tiffany was not subject to orders by
Mason Deuies the Charge
W. G. Mason, the nlht operator at
Julian, writes and complains about un
Item than appeared in The News of
the 1st inst, in which it saya that he
had "a fighting jag on." He denies
that he was drinking and says tnat
he had just grounds for the trouble
that he got into and was compelled to
interview ih police judge. The
News does not know that Mr. Mason
was drinking, what led up to the
trouble or why he pleaded guilty and
paid a fine. The News is pleased to
make any correction at any time for
Mr. Mason or anyone else that may
feel that it has stated other than facts.

ing of Dr. King's New Discovery, says
that last winter h's wife was attacked

Discovery in store, and eelling lots of
it. he took a botte home, and to the
surprise of all she began to get better
from first dose, and half dozen dollar
bottles cured her sound and well. Dr.
