A Frao.il lTn4
Kansas City, Jan. 2J The grand
jury in session here Las for several days
been investigating what is said to have
been a deliberate scheme to defraud
the National Bank of Commerce out of
tiO.OUO, and it is known that two in
dictmenu have been returned aud that
capias for the offenders are in the hands
of Marshal Stewart. The fraud which
baa caught the banks in several com
mercial centers in the United Stales
was brought to light by its Kansas City
ramifications. Its extent, as far as
traced, is between SloO.OOO aud ISJO.OuO,
with all the debts not yet ascertained.
The parties charged with the swindle
are the lumber firms of J. II. Bemis &
Co. of Jefferson, Tex., and George W.
Howell & Co. of Atchison. Kas.
Banks' is Connecticut, Missouri, Ten
nessee, Kansas, Nebraska and Illinois
are knowu to have been defrauded, aud
the full extent of the fraud is not yet
fully known. In Kansas City the Na
tional Bank of Commerce was caught
The manner in which the swindle
was perpetrated was not a complicated
one. Each firm drew "accommoda
tion" drafts on the other, due prin
cipally in thirty, sixty and ninety uays,
respectively. The firm on whx-h the
draft was drawn would accept it. The
draft was drawn up so as to make the
amount in odd dollars and cents, for
the purpose of giving it the appear-,
ance of a draft drawn for the sale or
purchase of lumber in the ordinary
course of business and not for an ao,
commodation draft, which is made
simply when one person with good
credit desires to indorse for another for
accommodation aud which is almost
certain to be for an amount in round
numie s. Those drafts were issued
several months ago, when the firms had
good credit, but nere really in failing
circumstances. The next step was to
go to the banks and under false repre
sentations get the draft cashed. About
the time the draft came due the firms
The fact that the drafts were time
and not sight drafts prevented attach
ing the bills of lading to the drafts, as
is usual in sight drafts, and covered up
the fraud in regard to the misrepre
sentation that the paper was for ac
commodation and not for the actual
sale of lumber.
Among the banks which got some of
this bad paper were those in Dallas,
Galveston and Houston, Tex., Memphis,
Tenn., Chicago, Atchison, Kansas City,
8t. Louis, Olatha, and some in
Connecticut, by rediseounting western
banks' paper. It is also staled that
one found its way to Boston.
Guilty or Murder. -
Alton, la., Jan. 29. The mystery
of the death of G. G. Goodale, the old
and wealthy farmer, who was found
with his skull crushed at his home,
near the south line of Union county,
has been cleared, and the suspicion that
he was murdered for hi3 money verified.
The murder was committed Sunday
night but was not discovered and made
public until Thursday.
The discovery of the murderers trans
pired through a remark made by one of
them in a store in this town, where a
group of men were talking about it
One said he did not hear of it until
Thursday, when Del Balderson, a lad
of nineteen, said he heard of it Sunday
and had seen the body in the hall. He
had told Joseph Elliott of it then, he
said, but Elliott did not go to the house
to investigate until Thursday.
After making this remarkable state
ment Balderson was watched and
Sa'urday was arrested and taken to
Creston to avoid danger of lynching.
He confessed that be had visited
Goodale's Sunday evening, with one
Sam Kidd, and that Goodale invited
them to supper. They killed him and
took all the money they could find,
8100, Kidd keeping the whole. Bald
erson's description of the wounds in
flicted tallied with those found on the
body. Officials fouudSfrJO hidden in
Goodaie's house where his murderers
Officers are out in search of Kidd,
but up to a late hour Saturday night
have been unable to get him.
A Murder and Kulclde.
Peoria, 111., Jan. 29. Mrs. Powers,
wife of John Powers of this city, shot
and killed her adopted child and then
shot heiself. Both are dead. Mrs.
Powers was formerly Mrs. Whitney,
and prior to her marriage with John
Powers, who runs a saloon, she resided
in Delaven, Tazewell county. Her
former husband, "Cass" Whitney, is an
attorney and well known throughout
central Illinois. She was seen on the
streets in the afternoon in company
with the little girl, and it is remarked
by those who saw her that her face
bore an unusual expression. Powers,
who is a man of violent temper when
aroused, has been on a spree for several
days, and it is thought that she com
mitted the act through fear. When he
arrived home in the evening and stood
face to face with the dead he betrayed
no emotion whatever, bat was as stolid
as an ox.

Mansfield, I'd.. Jan. 3a Never be
fore did the streets of Mansfield present
such a scene of excurme-1 as they i d
Sunday efeuiug. News has just ar
rived that a b i'tle took pi ace at W. J.
St-en's mine ou Tom's Hun, between a
band of rioters and a force of deputies.
Several hundred peule throng tue
street in front of the orlice to hear t ie
veidict and a large crowd gathered
about the station to learn the latest
from the skirmish. The report of this
last fray was brought by W. J. Meen,
operator of the mines which bear his
name. He came to Mansfield to secure
more deputies. It is said an engage
ment took place between the forces, iu
which a number of thots were fired.
What the result was has not been
learned. Steeu reported that a number
of the rioters had been captured and
were locked up in empty freight crs
as a temporary j-Ml. sheriff Kichards
lias gone to the scene.
ONE OF THE INJl 11KD IilhS.
Franz Joseph Stepie, the r.oter who
was shot during the battle at the Bead
ling mines, is dead. His sufferings
were terrible until a few minutes be
fore his death. He writhed with pain
in his stomach where the bullet had
pierced him. For some, reason, or
other he had no medical attendance. It
is c lid that attempts to secure the sur
vice of doctors iu Mansfie d, Woodville
and Bridgeville were without success,
because, it is alleg-d, the physicans
were afraid to visit the terrorized dis
trict. His ignorant Slavish attendants
were powerless to do anything for his
relief. Besides the hole through his
body the poison from the deadly bullet
diffused itself through bis system. Be
fore he expired he made a confession
to Ceorge Martinec, a felow country
man, who was present. He said he had
been intimidated into joining the ranks
of the rioters. He had been visited by
some of the lawless leaders, and not
only persuaded but commanded to join
tln-in. Terrible threii's were made.
Finally, in fear of his 1 , he consented
to their wishes. He w t among the
number who undertook the Beadllng
assault, and was in front of the line
pushing forward when shot down. It
is the belief of some that Stepig was
not shot by the guards defending the
mine, but by someone iu the ranks of
the rioters who had a grudge against
DEPUTIES GCAP.D THE TOWN.
Upon the presentation of a numer
ou v signed petition from Bridgeville
a: ecial detachment of deputies has
be n sent to guard that town. The
cit zens fear an assault. This is the
town which mustered up a squad of
twenty volunteer deputies while the
Schults coal tipple was inflames, and
ran down the mob of rioters, capturing
a number of them, who are now in the
county jaiL Through scouts who were
sent "U it was learned that the dis
persed rioters had reassembled at their
rendezvous in Hei'elburg and had
pledged themselves to be revenged on
the citizens of Bridsreville. They also
decided to avenge the death of their
comrade at the Beadling mines. They
pledged themselves to destroy the
Beadling coal tipple if it takes months
to do it. For this reason special pre
cautions are being taken L both dis
tricts. The Bridgeville deputies with
reinforced numbers are on duty with
the company deputies. At the Bead
ling mines, where the fierce battle of
yesterday took place, a band of four
deputies, consistine of Captain Michael
Dean, Joseph Murphy, John Bennmg
and E. D. Sweres, were on guard.
Dozens of the citizens of the Beadling
mineing hamlet are ready to respond
upon a signal from Captain Dean.
At 9:40 p. m. Deputy Thomas I'ascoe,
who is in charge of the deputies at the
Tom's Kun district, reports that all is
qu et there. Informations have been
made before Squire McMillan for the
arrest of the rioters and no more
trouble is feared. The other districts
are also quiet.

Lout a Kea
London, Jan. 31. Twenty-six lives
have been lost in the British bark Port
Vaarock, Captain Forbes, from Santa
Kosaiia July 4, for Antwerp, which
some davs ago put into Brandon bay.
County Kerry, Ireland, in a disabled
condition, and which, during a gale,
dragged her anchor and went ashore.
A very high sea was running iu the bay
and when the bark struck the Burf it
made a clean breach over her. It is re
ported that her captain and six of her
crew were ill, and this made the vessel
short handed. Nineteen men, however,
were fit for duty, and some surprise is
expressed among seafaring men that
apparently no attempt was made to claw
off shore when it was seen that the
inchor would not hold. It was Impos
sible, owing to the position of the
stranded vessel, for any assistance to
reach her, and in a short time she be
ean to break up.
Some of those on board the bark at
tempted to reach shore by means of
planks or spars, but they were swept off
and disappeared almost as soon as they
If ft the vessel. Not a person ou the
bark was saved.
The Hawaiian Keaulution.
W miington, Jan. 31. The atten
tion of the senate was held for two
hours by a very interesting speech by
eller on the Hawaiian r solution, after
which tiie resolut'on was placed on the
calendar. Thurston, the Hawaiian
minister, wis nu interested auditor.
Teller took very advanced ground in
favor ot the annexation of the Hawaii
an islands and ultimately of (iitia, and
Canada. He argued that the provi
sional government of Hawaii was an
existing government which could not
be overthrown or questioned by the
government of the United Stales, and
he said he would vote for the resolu
tion as reported from the committee on
foreign lelations. even with the clause
in it which he did not favor, that, it
was unwise an inexpedient under exisi
lug circumstances to declare at this
time liny project of annexation of the
Hawaiian Islands to the United States.
In the course of Senator Teller's
speech an interesting colloquy too
place between him and the junior sena
tor from Nebraska.
Cincinnati, O., Jan. 31. The task
of finding work for the unemployed,
under 9100,000 coutigent fund appro
priation, began in earnest. The cor
ridors and stairways of the city hall
were packed with laborers at an early
hour yesterday morning, all eager to
secure the coveted tieket which gav
them the rieht to get a job. The mayor,
assisted by members of the citizen's
committee in the distribution, decided
to give married men the preference.
About 10,000 men have been given jolts
in the vorious city departments. Hun
dreds were disappointed, but their turn
William Dickman, one of the men
who did riot receive a ticket, became
abusive in the mayor's presence, and
was ordered out. In the corridors lie
shouted that he would get even with
the mayor and threatened to blow up
the city hall with dynamite, a stock of
which he said he had at home. The
police were at once notified, but the
man had escaped.

archives were completely destroyed aud
others partially burned. Minister
Potter stated that no valuable
documents were destroyed. The min

of foreign affairs, as soon as he himself
learned of it, and the police were im

London, Feb. 2. The Pail Mall Ga
zet -3 ss)S today:
' V, ' have reason to know from an
authority that we are unable to dis
close, hut in w hich e have every con
fidence, that F.r. ;ialsloue has decided
Iq resign almiwt imriidiately. We un
derstand that a letter announcing this
resignation will be sent to ttie queen by
Mr. Gladstone before the reopening of
parliament Mr. Gladstone's decision is
due to a sense of his advanced age and
to the great strain to which he was sub
jected during the last aiduous session
He is also deeply disappointed be
cause of the rejection of the home rule
bill and the opposition to the parish
councils bill by the house of lords.
Domestic pressure also had consider
able inlluence in determing his mind at
last. Who will succeed htm, and what
will be the result?"
Mr. Glatstone authorized Sir
Algemou West, who is bis companion
in Biarritz, to send out the BUtteuieut
"The statement that Mr. Gladstone
has definitely decided or decided at all
to resign is untrue. It is true, how
ever, that for many months past bis
age and the condition of his sight and
hearing have, in his judgment, made
relief from public affairs desirable.
Therefore his tenure of office lias beeu
at any moment liable to interception
from these causes, w hich are iu their
nature permanent. He is ignorant of
the course w hich events important to
the nation may take even during the
remainder of the present session ot
parliament, and he has not said or done
anything which could in any degree
restrain the absolute freedom of his
colleagues regarding the performance
of ihe arduous duties now lying or
likely to lie before them."
Mr. Lyttleton, Mr. Gladstone's
secretary, had not received at 10:45 any
answer to the statement concerning
the Pall Mall Gazette's announcement,
which he telegraphed to Biarritz.
The Natioual liberal club and the
central officers of the national federa
tion have beeu deluged all Die evening
with telegrams of inquiry as to Mr.
Gladstone's intentions. Scores of per
sonal inquiries have been telegraphed
to Mr. Gladstone in Biarritz, ainong
them several of his minlstei.il
colleagues. The liberals in London
were disappointed by the staieme,
sent out by Sir Algernon West, as they
had hoped for a plain, unequivocal
denial. Nevertheless the party mali
ngers are convinced that nothing war
rants the assumption that Mr. Glad
stone will retire soon from public life.
Tinkering the KfVenue lllll.
Washington. Feb. 2. The house
spent a very lively day over amend
ments to the internal revenue bill, in
cluding the income tax. The greater
part of the day was spent in discussing
the distilled spirits schedule. An imi
portaut amendment was also offered to
the income tux feature by Springer,
and was agreed to, tutting a tax of 2
per cent on incomes derived from suc-cei-B.on
or from gifts, devices and in
heritances, both of real estate and per
sonal property. The amendment put
ling the internal revenue billon the
tariff bill was then agreed to. Then
an attempt was made to amend the
barley schedule of the bill in the way of
raising the duties, but it failed ou ac
count of the expiration of the time.
Tate offered the first amendment to
the internal revenue bill, proposing to
strike out the last three sections of the
bill, which include the tax of $1 per
gallon on distilled spirits, and also the
clause referring to the bonding of dis
tilled spirits aud their withdrawal from
the warehouses. The adoption of this
amendment would leave the existing
law as to spirits in force.
1 UK tax on whisky.
Outliwaite offered the following
amendment: That on and after the
passage of th'S bill there shall be
levied and collected on all distilled
spirits produced in the United States
on which tax is not paid before that
day, per proof gallon, or wine gallon
when below proof, IK) cents if paid
