tea T taam
PniLADELmiA, Jane IS. Assistant
Bank Examiner Jones appeared before
the Bardslcj investigating committee
yesterday afternoon and explained at
some length, in answer to questions,
the methods of examining national
banks, and told when the Keystone had
been examined. The discrepancy of
the ledger of the Keystone was first
discovered by him January 9. 1991,
but not by any information
famished by Examiner Drew.
Afters the discovery nothing was
done to stop Lawrence from attending
to hla nasal duties except to see that
he made bo more false entries. Feb
ruary S, he said, by orders of the ex
aminer, Mr. Jones took omeial charge
of the heeks ef the hank. Even after
the hank examiner took charge, de
posits were received from February 5
to March '20. He did not know what
was done about discounts, but did know
that depositors were allowed to check
out their deposits if they saw fit
After the committee bad asked all
the questions they wished Mr. Jones
said: "There is another thing which I
wish to state. Upon the 13th day of
last February CoraptroHer Lacey waa
in this city. There was a reception
held at the Hotel Lafayette which he
attended. After it was over Bank Ex
aminer Drew brought Comptroller
Lacey over to the Keystone bank and
showed him the books and explained
to him the condition of affairs as we
then knew them to exist I explained
the padding of tho New York bank
ing exchange receipts and in
formed him of the due bills which had
been found. Tho difference found in
the ledger and the stock and bond ac
counts for which the Lucas estate was
held responsible at that time was
thoroughly explained to him. Comp
troller Lacey understood at the time all
about the Lucas defalcation, which at
that time was understood to be $600,000.
Then tbe assets were considered and
Comptroller Lacey called the Spring
Lake property worth $700,000 instead
This statement of Mr. Jones caused a
great sensation, as Comptroller Laeey's
visit to the bank had been kept a close
secret and Bank Examiner Drew had
never, under severe cross examination,
allowed himself to give the slightest
intimation of it
Before the committee adjourned to
go into executive session Mayor
Stuart's private secretary, Louis Reit
lcr, arrived with a message to the
members of the committee. It con
tained the report of the experts who
are now investigating the accounts of
John Bardsley, and created another
sensation. The experts reported that
they had discovered another embezzle
ment of City Treasurer Bardsley,
and that it amounted to $400,000 this
in addition to all sums hitherto report
ed. The missing $400,000 is money
which the state had paid over to John
Bardsley a city treasurer as the share
of Philadelphia's school fund to be ap
plied to educational purposes. The ex
perts find that tho money was paid over
to Bardsley, but that it was never
turned over to the citr.

Loxdox, June IS. The storm rising
around the prince of Wales ia fast eh
intensity, endangering his
of succession to the throae. if
set the existence of the EnglUh mon
archy. None appear to be stirred so
deeply as the great middle class, the
real strength of the country, aad hith
erto a solid and stolid prop of the mon
archy. Wherever its voice becomes
audible its earnest denunciations of the
prince of Wales are accompanied by
regrets at his nearness to the throne.
Representative gatheriags of religious
hodiea CongregatioaaL MethodUt
Baptist Uaitariaa and Presbyteriaa
have already recorded their condemna
tion. Boards of guardians are going
oat of their accustomed paths to dUcuss
motions branding the gambling pro
pensities of the prince of Wales as a
disgrace to the country. Several lib
eral societies have adopted resolutions
against his continuance in the army.
The agitation has every character of
permanence. It has not yet touched
more than a fringe of the political par
ties, but ere long the glowing tones of
the people mut penetrate the core of
polities, causing party action within
and without parliament
The radical members of the houte of
commons are opening the attack upon
the prince of Wales, but they have
been warned that Mr. (iladstone re
sents the movement and that the lead
cars of the opposition will actively
show their repugnance ,to associating
liberalism with an agitation tending to
cast disgrace upon the crown.
Conferences have been held at the
war office, attended by Mr. Stanhope,
the duke of Cambridge, tin: duke of
Connaught, (Jen. Redvcrs Buller and
CoL Tracey, and H is reported that they
decided that the prince of Wales cn.
Williams and Lieut Lcvett had com
mitted no offense agrlnst military law,
but only a techuical breach of the reg
ulations. Mr. Stanhope, therefore,
basing Monday's response to the ques
tions on the decision of the conference,
will probably declare that the com
mander in chief will deal with the case
privately without regard to regulations.
It is understood the prince of Wales
is keenly stung at tho adverse criti
cisms which have been showered upon
him from all quarters. Especially Is
this the case in regard to the newspa
per comments which practically accuse
him of revealing the secret of the Tran
by Croft scandal and referring to tho
fact that he was not asked if he had
spoken of the affair to anybody after

I'OMlMe Heveranre of IMlumatln HrUIInn
With Hay II.
New York, June is. A special from
Washington to the Herald says tho gov
ernment is seriously considering the
question of cutting off all diplomatic
relations with Hayti. The letter writ
ten by Minister Firman to the special
commissioners of the United States in
reply to a request for a lease of the
mole St Nicholas has been taken up in
During the uprising two years ago
Hippolytc sent a commissioner to this
country, who virtually pledged to the
United States the lease of a coaling sta
tion and certain commercial privileges
in the event of the United States lend
ing her moral support to Hippolyte.
This the United States did, and it
proved the turning point in the uprising
in the black republic, for shortly after
ward legitime was deposed.
Recently a commission was sent to
Port au Prince to receivo a fulfillment
of the pledges. Instead they received
a very irritating reply; in which Hippo
lytc absolutely declined to enter into
any negotiations for a lease of tbe mole
and objected to the continued presence
in Port au Prince of United States men
of war. He completed ignored any ob
ligation toward the United States.
Minister Douglass will soon arrive in
this country on a leave of absence, and
it is probable that liefore he returns all
diplomatic intercourse will have ceasd.
It will then lie with Hayti to make
stlch apologies and reparation as may

there conld be no doubt about a two
