MANY BANKERS HELD UP FOR
IRB WORKED BT TWO LUMBER FIRMS.
Tin Drafts for Urr Amounts Cashed by
Bub la Hur Western and ta raw
EuUra CltlM Jut Before the
Firms Failed The LomM Are
BttVMl 1S0.000 to lOO,
OOO so Far a Known.
Kaksas Citv, Mo., Jan. 89. A
gigantic fraud which has caught the
banks in several commercial centers
in the United Rates was brought to
light by its, Kansas City ramifications
to-day. Its' extent, as far as traced, is
between 9150,000 and 8200,000 with all
the details not yet ascertained.
The persons charged with the per
petration are the lumber firms of J.
A. Remir and company of Jefferson,
Texas, and George V. Howell and
company of Atchison, Kan. ISanks in
Connecticut, Missouri, Tennessee, Kan
sas, Nebraska and Illinois are known
to have been defrauded and the full
extent of the fraud is not yet fully
known. In Kansas City the National
Bank of Commerce was caught for
160,000, it was said, but the bank of
ficials deny that it even approximated
that amount and refuse to talk about
The manner in which the swindle
was perpetrated was not a complicated
one. Each firm drew "accommodation"
drafts on the other, due principally
In thirty, sixty and ninety daye re
spectively. The firm on which the
draft was drawn would accept it. The
draft was drawn so as to make the
amount in odd dollars and cents
for the purpose of giving it the
appearance of a draft drawn for
the sale or ' purchase of lumber
in the ordinary course of business
and not for an accommodation draft
which ia made simply when
one person with good credit desires to
indorse fpr another for accommodation
and which is almost certain to be for
an amount in round numbers. These
drafts were issued several months ago
when the firms had good credit, but
were really in failing circumstances.
The next step was to go to the banks
and, under false representations, get
the drafts cashed. About the time the
drafts came due the firms failed.
The fact that the drafts were time
drafts and not sight drafts prevented
attaching the bills of lading to the
drafts, aa is usual in sight drafts, and
covered up the fraud in regard to the
misrepresentation that the paper was
for accommodation and not for the
actual sale of lumber.
SThe case waa brought to the atten
on of the Jackson county grand jury,
Which has lust closed its deliberations
here, and it ia said that indictments
for obtaining money from the National
Bank of Commerce have been found,
but members of the grand jury and
the county marshal and deputies and
the prosecutcr will say nothing of the
' Among the banks which got some of
this bad paper were those in Dal
las, Galveston and Houston, Texas,
Memphis, Tenn., Chicago, Atchison,
Kan., Ktl Louis, Omaha and some in
Connecticut by rediscounting Western
banks' paper. It has also been stated
that some found its way to Boston.

SEAL PROTECTION NOT SURE.
Outside Nations May Destroy the Ani
mals Regulations Not Yet Beady.
Washington, Jan. 29. As the time
approaches for putting into force the
regulations to protect seal life in
Behring sea it becomes more evident
that it will be difficult to make regu
lations in conformity with the recom
mendations of the Behring sea trib
unal, for the United States and Great
Britain, even by agreement and co-operation,
cannot protect seal life
beyond the three mile limit of the
land and the., islands, except against
their own citizens under their own
0 Most of the depredations in the past
have been committed under the
British flag of Canadian sailers. This
can be put a stop to, but if thescCana
dian sailers can sail under the Corean
flag or that of any other nation not a
party to the agreement, they cannot
be prevented from pursuing pelagic
sealing. The task in preparation of
regulations is, therefore, the securing
of agreements from other nations not
to allow their flags to be used to pro
tect depredators. The labors of
Secretary tiresham and Sir Julian
Pauncefote, British ambassador, are
believed to be directed to that end.

Only Seventeen Shot Downs Noted Ke-

However Annual Analysis of
Mora Than 17,000 Failures
Dad Weather la the West
New York, Jan. St. Bradstreet's
aays: "The improvements in business
and industrial lines, reported hereto
fore, continues to gain moderately
and shows gains from week to week,
although more conspicuously in manu
facturing than in commercial lines.
This is indicated by the report of
sixty-two resumptions of more im
portant manufacturing establish
ments this week compared with
seventeen shut down, and by
the total of 8840,227,000, the bank
clearings of the week at fifty-four
cities, which is nine per cent smaller
than in the preceding week, and
three per cent smaller than in the
like week last year. The sudden and
severe change in the weather has
checked shipments of merchandise to
many Western and northwestern
points, although orders for seasonable
floods have, in many instances, been
ncreased with the cold and the storm.
Reductions in wages continue, and
about a quarter of them are of twenty
per cent, the rest ranging from seven
to seventeen per cent, in no direction
are quotations of manufactured pro
ducts higher but while some have
rcuatly declined, the general tone is
Bradstreet s annual analysis of more
than 17,000 .business failures in the
United States and Canada last year
shows a net gain of more than 8,000 in
the total business population in the
United States in 1893 compared with
92, notwithstanding panic and de
pression during seven months of last
year. The gain in 1892 over 1691 was
about 38,000. Lack of capital, direct
effects of the financial crisis; incom
petence and fraudulent disposition of
property account for 80 per cent of
the failures last year, and in the year
before the proportion of failures due
to speculation outside of regular
business, to personal extravagance,
to fraudulent disposition of property
and undue competition was smaller in
1893 than in 1892.
States Can't Limit Immigration.
San Francisco, Jan, 29 The
supreme court has declared the act
passed by the legislature in 1891 re
garding the right of the state to
limit immigration was unconstitu
tional. The case was that of a
Chinaman arrested for nnlawfully re
maining in the state. The act pro
vides for deportation, but the court
decides thai, the power thus attempt
ed to be exercised belongs exclusively
to the general government.
Butchered In His Home.
Creston, Iowa. Jan. 29. P. G. Good-
ale, a farmer 73 years of age, residing
alone in a little house near Afton,
has been foud butchered in his house.
By the failure of a bank at Tingley he
lost 8400, and has since kept consid
erable sums in his house. There were
sixteen wounds on Goodale'a head and
neck any one of which would have
caused death. Two pocketbooks car
ried by him are missing. Considera
ble money secreted in the house was
overlooked by the robber.

Nevada, Mo., Jan. 29. News was

arrests had just been made of persons
charged with complicity in the poison

MRS. LEASE AGAIN.
She Mskes Srandaloos Charges Against
Kansas Politicians. .
Pleabanton, Kan., Jan. 29. The
following letter from Mrs. Lease ap
peared in the Herald yesterday:
Editor Pleasanton Herald:
From wjiat I know of you I do not
believe you would intentionally do me
or any one an injustice. I therefore
take the liberty to ask you if you have
any reason for accusing me of holding
a consultation with Peck and Rossi ng
ton other than the statements of the
politicians, who know that I know of
their dishonesty, and that I am op
posed to fusion? I most emphatically
brand their statements as false.
I went to St. Louis at the request of
an invalid sister whose little sick
child wanted me. I bowed to Mr.
Peck in the dining-room and spoke to
bim afterwards in the parlor as I
would speak to any acquaintance from
Kansas; if this is crime why not brand
as crime the fact admitted by the
governor, when he was compelled to
admit it, that he held a midnight con
ference with George R. Peck and sur
rendered to the Santa Fe that Duns
more house which he had called out
the militia to sustain and which had
been organized by the candidates for
the United States senate and the
chairman of the Democratic central
committee; and this crowd elected by
liquor and fusion votes; that
took bribes from three com
panies Rock Island, Missouri Pa
cific and Missouri, Kansas and Texas
(I have the proof); that are in part
nership with saloons and gambling
houses; that are the most dishonest
and corrupt gang that has ever cursed
Kansas and they want to be
renominated that they may keep their
relatives in office at the expense of
It is necessary to "kill me politic
ally" ere they can succeed, and to de
stroy me they say I am working for
Republican pay, just as the Repub
licans used to claim I was working on
Democratic pay when I opposed them.
Not only that, but they paid 8500 to
obtain affidavits that General J. B.
Weaver and I slept together at many
of the leading hotels during the cam
paign. The governor said to two state
officers: "If Mrs. Lease makes any
fight on me I will spring those affida
vits on her." Rest assured the fight
will be made and the right will win."
