ROBBERS WANT $50,000.
They Offnr to Return Stolen Ilond. Haul
Static Nineteen' Year Ago.
New York, May 31. Nineteen yean
ago tho country was startled by the
report of the biggoit bank burglary
known In the history of tho world.
It occurred Sunday, October 27. 1878.
Tho Manhattan Savings institution of
this city was robbed of securities esti
mated at 83,747,700 and 911,000 in cash.
With tho exception of a few of tho
bonds offered for sale some time ago,
nona of thr securities have been re
covered. It was believed that they
had been burled or destroyed.
That the securities are still la exist
ence are known here A short time
ago negotiations wero opened between
men said to represent the burglars aud
President Joseph Bird of the Manhat
tan Savings Institution for their re
turn. The burglars have mado a demand
for 930,000, and no questions to be
asked, with the understanding that
the securities are to be handed over in
good shape and that Immediately upon
their dollvcry the money shall be paid
President Dird, who nt tho tlmo of
tho robbery was paying teller of tho
Manhattan Savings Institution, said
to-day that 10,000 had been asked for
the return of the bonds aud although
tho bank officials would like to get
them back he dcclarod they would not
pay tho amount asked. Continuing
Mr. Bird said:
"Many of the securities are worth
less to-day, I should say, since tho
government camo to our assistance
10 mo time ago by an act of Congress
authorizing tho secretary of tho treas
ury to reissue duplicates In placo of
the stolen United States bonds.
"There was a number of other bonds
Usued by cities and corporations, how
ever. Some of these are duo soon, and
of course wo would liko to havo tho
originuls, an it would make it easier
for us to collect the moneys involved.
"I refer particularly to tho Yon Iters
:lty 7 por cent coupon bonds. Tuero
ivero 8118,000 Yunkers bonds stolen,
and out of that amount we havo re
ceived 908,000, which loaves 920,000
Mr. lllrd stated that he bolicvcd the
offer to bo mudo In good faith, aud the
caso has been placed iu tho hands of
tho bank's counsel. Thoso who par
ticipated in or were connected with
thu robbery wero Jimmy Hope, John
Hope, Patrick Shevolln, the watch
man ottyq banWilllain Kelly, Peter
Emerson, alias "Banjo Pete;" John
Nugent, a policeman, Eddlo Goldlng,
alias "Eddie Goodie;" John Tracy and
Johnny Dobbs. Of these Jimmy and

Nkw York, May 31. Bankers are In
terested, In dispatches announcing that
the finance committee of the Senate Is
considering a proposition to umend the
tariff bill by substituting for the tax
on tea and tho lncrenso of the tax on
beer a tax on bank checks, deeds,
raorgages and other conveyances and
Additional interest was imparted to
this subjeet by tho fact that Senator
Piatt has announced his determination
to help secure this action.
Tho Impression prevails, however,
that there is not much likelihood of
the adoption of this substitute, which
Is generally opposed. E. B. Randolph,
president of the Continental National
"I have always been in favor of a
stamp tax on bank checks and other
Instruments. I believe It Is a prac
ticable and fair way to raise money. I
was surprised when the old law was
repealed, and I cannot see why there
should be any opposition to a provis
ion of this sort. One advantage about
a tax of this kind Is that it is easily
At tho National City bank It was
said that there are serious objections
to the tax on the part of banks.
"On tho face of It," said James Ross
Curran, assistant cashlor, "the taxis
to bo paid by tho person who draws
the check, but In reality tho banks
would pay a considerable proportion
of tho tax. Checks would get In with
out a stamp and the bank would put
stamps upon them. It is thought that
the imposition ot the tax would causo
restriction of the use of checks."
William Sherrcr, manager of tho
clearing house, In discussing tho oper
ation of tho old stamp law, said:
"The tax on checks used to be 3
cents, without reference to tho amount
of tho check, but there wero stamps
ranging In value from that amount up
to 8500. On mortgages, bonds and
other Instruments thu stamp repre
sented a per ccntago of the amount of
"Banks would deposit say 81,000 and
got a certificate authorizing the issu
ance of stumps to the amount of 91,050
and afterward tho stamp was made a
part of tho check, just printed on.
There was a margin of 3 por cent on
amounts up to 8100, of 4 per cent on
amounts up to 8300 und ot 5 per cent
on amounts of 81,000, the premium be

has been definitely fixed, and they will
bo debarred from chief clerkships and

from Miles City, tho nearest town In

who reside near the seat of the out.

Sheriff Brlggs ui.d Deputy Smith
Winters should nmve among tho
Cheyenncs Wednesday with wurranti
for The murderers, which they will at
tempt to serve.
Whlto Bull's band of warriors num
bering i35, who escaped from tho
agency Friday night, are in tho hilhi
upon the Tongue river near Ashland,
and this will bo the scene of the firs
bloodshed should there be auy. Tho
settlers are not as well armed as tho
Indians, though arms und ammunition
are being forwarded as rapidly as pos
sible. The Cheyenncs are well known for
their hatred of the white man, their
treachery and their inclination to bo
on the warpath. Most of the Chey
enncs who havo on the war paint uro
young bucks. Among them aro sev
eral old Indinus who were with Chiefs
Dull Knife and Black Horse, who made
that memorable raid through Kuusas
and Nebraska in 1878.
At the tlmo these Cheyenncs camo
to Montana the country was In posses
sion of white settlers, wjjo had taken
up lund and wero cnguged In farming
and stock raising, and they petitioned
the government not to allo.v these In
dians to remain here, knowing there
would be trouble It they did. Tho
government went so fnr as to stop
their rations, thinking this would in
duce them to leave, but the Chcycnue.s
oaslly procured their living by steal
ing from the settlers, killing off their
cattle, and have continued the cattle
killing ever sinco.
The present trouble at Lame Deer
agency is but an acute phase of the
armed neutrality in that section. Bud
blood exists all the tlmo botween the
cowboys and Indians. When cowboys
get drunk they kill an Indian and the
red men reciprocate. Indians often
kill range cattle Tor the hides or for
food, and when they are discovered by
a lone herder they kill him to destroy
evidence against themselves. The re
sult is that they distrust each other,
and bushwhacking is the rule.
Lame Deer agency, tho Cheyenncs'
headquarters, Is sixty miles from the
nearest ruilroad point. Tho trouble Is
not ot recent origin, but dutes baek
almost to tho time tho Cheyenncs were
located lu Montana.

WAsmxoTo.f, Juno 3. In the case of
John E. Searlcs, the sugar trust wit

to bring in a verdict of acquittal this
morning, holding that tho question
asked tho witness by the Senate com
mittee wero not pertinent, nnd, if so,
wero not within tho jurisdiction of the
The judgo pointed out that Mr.
Searlcs had testified specifically that
no money had been contributed by tho
Sugar trust to tho national campaign
or for the purpose of Influencing leg
islation or tho election of United
States sonators. Certainly, tho judgo
said, a simple Investigation as
to whether tho Sugar trust
had contributed to a campaign
fund would be an unwarranted
search Into tho private affairs of the
company and plainly beyond tho power
of the Senate. Tho Senate committee
hnd reported that no testimony had
been produced to show that tho Sugar
trust had made any contributions to
any national campaign fund for the
purposo of affecting legislation. If
mono had gone for tho purpose
of electing members of state legis
latures, who In tlmo would elect
a United States Senator, it was
beyond tho power of tho United
States Senate to go behind the elec
tion ot legislative members. If this
wero truo as to statu matters how
much moro truo was it of local elec
tions. It would bo the wildest con
jecture to assumo that tho raonoy so
contributed In nny way had gone to
make up tho sugar schedule.
It appeared from tho report of tho
committee that they wero not In the
possession of any fucts upon which
they could base a most remote hope of
showing an ultimate connection be
tween tho Sugar trust's contributions
and the sugar schedule. Under these
circumstances It must be held that tho
questions asked were not pertinent
and wero not construed to be perti
nent Judgo Bradley, therefore, sustained
tho motion of the defense nnd ordered
the jury to return a verdict of ac
quittal. Tho jury accordingly ren
dered a verdict of not guilty aud Mr.
Searlcs was froe.
