Wamuxotox, Juno 10. The pre3i
Mro upon SpbuUer Reed from Ropub
llcan members of the House to Induce
hlra to name at an parly date commit
tees to enn-dder tlio bankruptcy bill,
tho Cuban belligerency rclutlon unil
o proposeil amendment for a mone
tary commission, whloh, it is gener
ally understood, will be introduced in
both Senate and Hou;,o us soon ns the
tariff bill shall bo out of the way, has
been Increased. Mr. Reed has been
strongly urged topcrmltconslderation
of the bankruptcy and the monetary
commission bills while the tariff bill
Is pending in conference on the ground
that both of theso moasunys are of
prime importance and tinder the elr
cumstnncss could not bo considered at
interfering in uny manner with tht
Vass.igo of the tariff bill itself.
There Is u persistent demand from
all portion of the country for the pas
sage of a bankruptcy bill, and It is
known that both Preiidetit McKittloy
and Secretary Ongj ore anxious that a
commission to formulate u bill for tho
reform of tho currency shall bo se
lected during tho extra session In or
der that a mental ro of that character
may bo brought before Congress wlten
It shall meet in December. There are
threats from tho free silver Democrats
-of tho Svnnto that no monetnry com
mission bill will be permitted to pass
that body. These may possibly hi of
avail, but It Is understood the presi
dent Is anxious that the effort shall bo
made and that tho responsibility for
obstruction or defeat shall bo placed
where it belong.!.
Speaker Reed, it is stated, has de
clined to glvo any assurance that he
would permit theso subjects to bo
brought beforo the House through re
ports from regularly appointed com
mittees. Republicans hesitate to antagonize
tho speaker for tear that when the as
signment of member.') to committees
shall bo made tluy may find them
selves at tho bottom of tho list o i un
desirable committee t. It Is possible
that Mr. Reed may find a way to por
mit consideration of tho measures
named without appointing committees
to consider them previous to their be
ing brought boforo tho House.
WERE PAY ROLLS PADDED?
Investigation UcKiin on tlio Hnntu Fo
His; Hi'imntlon rromlneil.
Kansas Citv, Ma, Juno 10. A ucn
nation Is promised in connection with
tbo pay rolls of the Santa Fo railway
system. .
Officials of tho company have sus
pected for some timo that fictitious
names and tho nnmos of dead men
have been carried on tho pay rolls.
They recently began an Investigation
of tho timo books on tho entiro sys
tem. The investigation Is now in
progress in tho general otllces of tlio
company at Tnpeka and will not be
finished for sovoral weeks. It Is
rumored that tho company has been
robbed of thousands of dollars through
"padded" pay rolls, and whon tho In
vestigation Is ended tho discharge and
possibly tho criminal proslcution of
several minor officials is expected to
follow.
Tho investigation was brought about
by tho report of tho secret servlco de
partment of tho Santa Fe, which
claimed to have sneurod proof that one
official had robbed tho company of
several thousand dollars by drawing
tho salaries of sovoral fictitious em
ployes who3o names appeared
on tho pay rolls. The offi
olal was quietly discharged after
making gooi tho amount of
bis shortage. It was then determined
to mako tho investigation thorough
and complote, covering the whole sys
tem, bocause it was bolloved if tho
company could be robbod by ono
truito.l employo It might just as easily
bo dofrauded by many othora
Tho secret servlco department
of tho Santa Fo is worlcing on
the investigation in connection
with the auditing office. Pro
gress is necessarily slow, becauso
whero any crookedness is suspected
tbo dotoctives havo to investigate and
ascertain if tho supposed fictitious
names wcro tho names of employes
actually in tho employ of .ho com
pany. Tho padding of pay rolls is an old
and simple method, which has fre
quently been workod on corporations
for years beforo detection came.

Miss Holbrook says that Barnato's

The state In tho cinbcz.lptnont paso

rested Its caco Monday nftornoon und
the ease now hangs practically in tho
hands of Judge Duller, to whom Is be
ing submitted the question formerly
raised by tho defense, that Hartley
cannot bo held tiut'er the present In
formation, which charges him with tho
embezzlement of money, wiureus tlio
cvldeneo shows the embivs'.tcineiit, if
any, was of n bunk credit. Tho menu
lug of the term "money" Is tho hanging
point which is to dotcrmini- whether
or not Alio euso will ever get to the jury,
and ,$dgo Raker calls it a "very
serious" quest'on. The argument on
the question, which was raised by a
motion by the defense to dlcmiss the
ciso by Instructing the jury to return
a verdict of acquittal, was resumed
f iipsnfiy morning, having been started
lute Wednesday afternoon.
It was on tlio meaning of tho term
"money" that Attorney Mahonoy ar
gued beforo Judge Raker, his talk last
ing from 4:30 to rt p. ,n. He went Into
history, early and lato law and the ac
credited dictionaries to show tliut no
where has a bank deposit been de
scribed ns money nnd that tho term litis
not been Mtlllelcntlv strained to permit
jf that interpretation. He said that in
ill tlio transactions between Hirtley
und the bank there was no evidence to
ihow that a cent of monov passed
through tliu ex-treasurer's lnnd'i.

how deeply ho would li.ivu to go into u

tl.nt it Is u very sjrlous question."

Word was revived from Springfield
Wednesday morning that the Illinois
bill appropriating 815,000 for nn iwhlb
it at tlio Umahu exposition was finally
a law, Governor Tunner having signed
tlio bill. Tho signature of tliu gover

he withdrew his approval almost im
mediately on learning of a dl.scropency
of about half u million dollars in tlio
state assessment. Ho was urged by
Illinois' rcprc.oututivcH in congress
nnd Chicago business men to sign tlio
measure. Tho money is to be spent

The tleeisii n of tho society of tho
homo for tho frieadlnssto remove from
tho building now occupied us n home,
has broug.it up a f.prlnus question
which the stuto uMckils may find
trutiblpsuttip. The hind ou which tlio
building stands was deeded to tho
state of Ni'biMska "for the use and
benefit of tin home for the friendless
aud in tlu stiteof Nihruku." Theso
tiro tlio words tise.l in the deed. As
tlio courts Ii.im held that tho society
Itself Is iu fait the homo for tin friend
less, it Is believed Ihat tho propel ty
will rightfully retort to tliu belts of
Sullit N. l-'runkltn and husband when
ever tho soi lety dNeontliiuos to use it
or derive benefit from it. Lawyers
who art looking into the matter say
cllluu this must bo the case or tlio so
ciety it entitled to bo rehnbur.M'd for
tin funds of Ih own Invested In tho
property. Tin last legislature recog
nized no vested right of the society,
but on the contrary passed a bill title
lug the control of the homo from tliu
society nnd placing it in tho hands of
the governor und hoard oi' public lauds
and building., It is claimed by friends
of tin) organization that tlio society
originally invested equally us muuh as
tho bt'ito. Other Interests are ut stake.
The city of Lincoln, when John R.
Wright was mayor, put in a bid for
tho locution of tho homo, The amount
oil'orod by tin city was S'J.000. There
was no other uiil, und It was nceupioti
by tho board of public hinds and build
ings. If tho society should change its &
elsion to remove from tho building und
commence u suit to test tbi validity of
tin act of the last legislature an Inter
csWng question uotild arise for tho
courts to decide. Some believe tho
law Is Invalid because It deprives the
society of vpAid rights.

The Strangest Dinner.
Fcrhaps tho most remarkablo dinner
on record was that glvon by an anti
quary named Goebol, In tho city of
Brussels. At tbo dinner were apples
that ripened moro than 1,800 yoara ago,
bread mado from wheat grown beforo
tho chlldron of Israel passed through
tbo Rod Sea, and spread with butter
that was mado when Elizabeth was
Quoon ot England. Tho repa3t was
washed down with wlno that was old
when Columbus was playing with, the
boys ot Genoa. Tho apples woro from
an, earthen jar takon from tho ruins
of Pompoll. The wheat was taken
from a chamber in ono of tho pyramids,
tho butter from a stone shelf lnvan
old well In Scotland, whero for sever
al centuries It had lain In an earthen
crock in Icy water, and the wlno was
recovered from an old vault In the city
of Corinth. There wero six guesU-at
tbo table, and each had a raouthfuH'ot
the bread and a teaspoonful of the
wlno. und was pormUted to help him
etlf bountifully to the butter, thoro be
ing several pounds ot It. Tho apple jar
held, about; two-thirds ot a gallon, .The
fruit was Bweet and as finely'favered
as it It bad been preserved but, a few
month" i
