2l GOULD AND HIS GABIES.
Charges of Bribery amlKmbezzlonicnt
* NIMV YORK , March 27i - [ Special Telegram
to the BEB. ] The Herald , in an interview
with E. li. Andrews , ono of the counsel for
the Denver PnclflO' ' bondholders , docs not
mention Jay Gould by name , but calls htm
the "Corsair , " or "George Gould's lather. "
Andrews said : "For two months past
.George Gould has been making continued
efforts to negotiate a settlement of tills mat
ter. Ho scut different financiers and law
yers to see us for that purpose. Our reply
was , of course , that wo would always DO
willing to lot Mr. George Gould's father
. .comply with the terms of the law which cn-
"iiblos him lo make restitution of the property
ho Is accused otr having embezzolcd. If ho
wanted to arrange a basis of settlement this
. M way would nlwa.vsbo open to him. As those
fl negotiations progressed , George Gould en-
, * dcavorod to bribe the counsel for the prose
cution by offering them largo foes on
' tlon that they would sacrifice the interests of
their clients. In .other words , if
they would abandon the case against Uussell
( .A Sago and the Corsair. Hero Mr. George
Gould's father Xvas named. These offers
* ivoro made by George Gould in person. They
worn promptly rejected. Mr. Goo. Gould
offered $30,000 In ono sum to ono of the coun
sel , ho" also said ho would buy the district
( jynttpmoyj Parties arc ready to make aBlda-
* * * vlrto all the circumstances connected with
; j those negotiations. The mdst important Interview -
* torviow iii connection with the negotiations
jtook place between Mr. Gcorgo Gould and
myself , or between myself and a prominent
lawyer , who as intermediary in the matter ,
was busily engaged upouit for several weeks ,
I wo supposing all the tlrao that they intended
restitution. I < shall withhold the name of the
prominent lawyer for the present. Ho is not
of the corsalr's'regular counsel. "
The Sun'a. interview with Gould credits
him as saying that the paper is the Herald ,
nnd explains the hostility as dating back
when the older James Gordon Bennett had
' his son elected director of the American cable
company , which was a pai t of the Western
Union , "young Bennett immediately de
manded that the Herald's news should have
prccedcnco over other papers and lower
rates. I thought the company a busincs con
cern and all p.ipors should bo treated alike.
ViJSIr. Bcuuott continued to demand , nnd said
. If it was notf complied with ho would start a
Tiew company. , Ho was dropped as a director
t , mid hunted up John W. Mnekay to build the
Commercial , which lias not proved profitable.
This is the history of the animosity of the
paper. " ,
vi In speaking of the proposed Indictment
JGould ; said : "Before I went to Europe
many suggestions nnd overtures wore made
ttto mo that might settle the case. I would
( > not. My principle through -life has been not
to glvo ono cent for blackmail but millions
for defence , I declined all propositions for
Bottling the matter. My son Gcorgo was left
Jfl face these people. 1 hadn't got fairly on
pen before the leading counsel for the al-
icgod bond holders called to see Gcorgo. Ho
was modest enough to say the whole matter
.Could bo settled for $500,000. "
f "What did Goorpo say 1"
n "Told the visitor ho hadn't that much
- money himself , that ho couldn'tcommunicato
with mo and that ho didn't see very well how
" the matter could bo settled , as it was in the
hands of the district attorney who had to do
S his duty , and if Mr. Sago and I wore guilty
ft , tboro could bo no possible settlement of the
_ case. Gcorgo was notified later in the day
that If bo did not settled before midnight the
whlto flag would bo pulled down und war de
clared. Gcorgo saw Urn white flag go down.
They then tried to have Mr. Sago settle ancl
offered to do Uio business for him in gooc
for $100,000. "
v "Why did they reduce the price to Mr ,
"Oh , I supiwso because they know his
money doesn't run as swift and easily as the
falls at Niagara. I can't understand to this
flay why they wanted mo to pay $500,00. , .

AFRAID OF POOR ENGINEERS ,
Omaha Switchmen Glvo the Tmo
Reason For tho.Strike.
BUT VERY FEW CARS MOVED.
Foitr or Five Scabs do to Work Ynrd-
mon at Ijincoln Quit No
Now Developments at ,
AH of Them Out.
Lost night brought out few new develop
ments In the switchmen's strike on the B , &
M. , but thcro is n decided difference notice
able in the number of cars handled. For
merly thcro was an average of 120 cars ro-
ceivcd dally and about the same number sent
out. The number Is now reduced to less than
Avonty-llvo each. Yesterday only twcnty-
ilirco * cars wcro sent out , and the three
.rains that came in had altogcthor only-flvo
cars , thcso being all way cars , A leading
switchman was asked by a BbK reporter last
evening as to the number of switchmen who
liad struck and whether any of them had re
turned to their posts. Ho replied that thcro
were twcnty-flvo who had quit nnd
not ono of that number had weak
ened. Some four or five scabs
had been hired , who were mainly
farmer's boys from fifteen to nineteen years
of ago. All wcro Inexperienced. Only ono
switchman of any experience had boon hired
md that , ho said , was Gqorgo W. HOBS , who
In December had been discharged , for beating
his wife , and also was expelled from the
Switchmen's Mutual Aid association for the
same offense , The switchmen also stated
that , the report that the open switch
which had caused the wreck at
South Omaha had been so fixed by the switch
men was untrue nnd that it was positively
done by men outside of the ranks who.woro
evil disposed toward them. Another ono of
the boys , upon being asked as to what the
general feeling among the switchman was as
to the real cause of the strike , replied that it
was on account of the present incompetent
set of engineers , whoso blunders wcro at any
tlmo liable to prove fatal to the switchmen.
All the switchmen at Plattsmouth , South
Omaha and In the Bluffs are. also out.
The Strike nt Chicago.
CHICAGO , March 27. Ono train load of
stock came into the stock yards this morn
ing over the Burlington under a guard of
twelve Plukerton men. Policemen nro pa
trolling about the trades.
There was little ohango apparent beyond
the arrival of a number of switchmen from
the east to talco the places of the strikers.
It is said that sixty men came in last night
from the Heading road and that they have
been distributed in the yards hero and else
where. The company is endeavoring to haul
such freight as requires immediate attention
nnd Is still receiving freight for purely local
The lumber district In this city la la bad
condition and as it is a busy season lumber
men will lose considerable trado.
No trouble was experienced in any part of
the city to-day. A largo number of specials
as well as city police were guarding the
yards , crossings , etc.
The company to-day announced Its inten
tion to postpone indoflnltoly the restoration
of the rates agreed to take effect April 1.
The ostensible reason is that owing to the
switchmen's utrko following close upon that
of tbo engineers and firemen , the company's
patrons have not had the opportunity to en
joy the advantages of the cut rates given by
The Illinois state railroad commissioners
to-day were waited upon by a committee of
business men from Aurora with a complaint
that the Burlington was employing , incompe
tent engineers. The commissioners agreed
to hear witnesses at a special investigation to
bo hold Tuesday noxt.
Tlie Switchmen State Their Case.
CHICAGO , March 27. The striking switch
men issued a statement to-night in which
they claim they had repeatedly warned Su
perintendent Bcsslcr they could not continue
to work with the Incompetent engineers and
firemen now employed. No satisfaction could
bo had beyond a request for them to "havo
patience , " nnd finally they quit work In the
same way they had warned the su
perintendent as individuals. The switch
men of the the entire Burlington system
were in the same condition as the Chicago
men and acted in the same manner. The
statement concludes : "Inasmuch as the en
gineers and firemen , before their strike ,
slnco , and now offered to submit the whole
matter to u committee of three managers of
any of the three first class roads running into
Chicago , wo cannot see tha justice in asking
men to sacrifice their limbs und lives upon
the altar of any man's potty pride or self-
Lincoln Switchmen Strike.
LINCOLNNeb. . , March 27. [ Special Tele
gram to the BEB. ] Tno strike situation was
added to to-day by a portion of the switch
men going out In the Burlington yards.
Those stopping out were not ro'plaecd during
the day and business In the yards wan light
and of an unsettled character. The pros
poets are that nil switchmen will retire at
this point nnd uu effort Is being made by the
company to secure now men. A letter from
Crcston , la. , to the brotherhood hero under
date of the ! 2flth relates the exploits of the
Pinkerton men in that place. The letter
states that the night before they stole a bar
rel of whisky out of the freight house and
got drunk. They then practiced shooting at
each other until six of them were arrested
and lodged hi jail. A nod Cloud dispatch re
lates the long cxperlenco of a scab in stop
ping along the road trying to get steam
enough to haul a few empty cars. It also
states that the preachers wcro preaching ser
mons hi favor of the men.
.Thirty switchmen , employed in the B. &
M. yards , wont out to-night. This includes
the entire night force with the exception of
ono man. The , day force will probably
refuse to work to-morrow.

An Attempt tp Blow Up the Housa of j
a Contractor , !
Duumt , Minn. , March 27. ( Special Tele-
jratn to the BEE. ] A dastardly attempt to
blow up the powder house of Contractor Fltz-
Patrick was discovered to-day. Had the at
tempt succeeded many lives must have boon
lost and many people injured. Pltzpatrlck
has been used to explosions for twenty years-
nnd until the last few weeks In Duluth never
had an accident. It will bo remembered by
many that In February n mysterious explo
sion occurred at these works on Fourth
street by which four people wcro killed nnd
over thirty injured. This was followed n
few weeks later by the demolition of n pow
der house with condldcrablo dvnamlto by
which three people were hurt and nearly two
hundred houses suffered considerable damage -
ago , nnd since then small quantities
of dynamlto have been missing from
tlmo to tlmo. On Saturday n new
powder houto was stored and locked up. nnd
the men loft for the usual Sunday holiday.
The severe storm of Monday stopped work
until Tuesday afternoon , when the men re
sumed operations. The man who takes care
of the powder nnd dynamlto went to the
building to got sufficient material for a blast ,
and on reaching the place saw a number of
foot marks In the snow about the door , and
the hinges were wrenched off. This made
him extremely careful , and the door was ro-
movcd. Upon entering the floor of the
building was found to bo thickly strewn
with broken pieces of dynamite , and several
boxes of cartridges nnd powder wcro broken
oiwn. A steve used in the building for
thawing and drying -the stuff was found to
have dynamite In the ashes , and the stove
plpo had been taken opart end sticks
of dynamlto arranged In such a manner that
n slight poking of the fire would have caused
nn explosion. Everything pointed to n fear
fully diabolical plot to destroytho house nnd
Imperil the lives of the seventy workmen
nnd the people living in the vicinity. The
building has been carefully searched and all
danger removed , and the place will bo
watched day and night after this. Suspi
cion already is directed to some discharged
workmen and If they nro found to bo the
culprits they will undoubtedly receive swift
and summary vengeance , as the people ore
considerably excited over the discovery.

day Mr. Blair called up the question of the
second reading of the bill introduced by htm

Edmunds opposed the second reading of the
bill vigorously and without disusing of the
question th , senate took up again the house
bill to provide fo"r the purchase of United
States bonds , the pending question being on
the amendment offered by Mr. Short author
ing the deposit of gold or silver bullion and
the Issuance of coin certificates therefor.
Mr. Teller said It was not because of over
production thnt there was such a wide diver
gence between silver and gold , but it was
because of the demonetization of silver.

also been foreigners. He was tired of the
maudlin sentimentality which would

the court wound up by fining Hattie $10 and

Sir. Anderson's Kcply.
To the Editor of the BBE : The charges
against myself , as published In Tuesday's
BEE , concerning my sale of two lots to Airs.
Ambrose , are false In every particular , and
calculated to place mo In a false light before
tho. public , W. S. Book was not at that time
engaged in business with mo. The lots were
not sold for $2,800 , but for less than ono-half
that amount ; and , instead of paying $1,800
cash , she paid less than one-half that amount ,
and the lots to-day ore worth at least $1,400 ,
instead of only $500 , as alleged in her peti
tion. The lots 7 and 8 , in block 11 , Jotter's
addition , were sold nnd represented to her
exactly as they wcro shown to mo and us
they appear on the maps and plats of South
Omaha and Jotter's ' addition.

that this musical festival was cancelled.

IMckinR Up Tigers by the Neck.
Prom Three Years of a Wanderer's
Life : I once saw three younp tipora ,
larger than Newfoundland dogs , loose
on the dock of n British India steamer
crowded with several hundred Mecca
pilgrims. The cage in. which they were
confined was largo and barred on each
side , with a partition running nlonjrits
middle , which had a drop door. The
man who had charge of the animals
would drive them ever to one side of
the cage , close out the partition , and
clean out the other side at his leisure ;
then barring up the clean side , ho would
open the partition and drive the tigers
back , while ho went through the same
performance on the other sido. Ono
morning ho neglected to put up
the bars on the side ho had finished ,
nnd so drove the tigers out of the
opposite side of the open cngo. The
animals on obtaining their liberty took
different directions , and crouching in
the nearest corners , lay snarling and
oxposifnj their teeth , showing unmis
takable signs of a most dangerous fear.
That aide of the deck was deserted , and
the crowd gazed in intorostat n respect
ful distance. Mr. Flouso. the third
ofllcor , the second officer and the keeper
each placed himself before a tiger , bar
ring their exit should they attempt to
move away. Flcuso inquired if the
tigers had been fed that nay. They
had not ; they had always lieon fed on
living fowls. Pleuso called for three
chickens from the hen coop. Taking
thcso ho throw ono in the face of each
tiger. The chiokons seemed simply
motionless , glued to the spot , so instan
taneous was the fixing of teeth and
claws. Flouso then wont deliberately
up to a tiger , coolly took the loose skin
of the hack of the neck with ono hand
nnd the root of the tail wiih the other ,
and putting out his full strength ,
dragged the heavy brute along the
deck to the cage , and forced it through
the open bars. The cliickv n diversion
acted perfectly. The brute had no ob
ject hut that of retaining its prey. It
growled fearfully ; its eyes blazed ; its
teeth crashed through the chicken ; its
unsheathed claws clasped and pierced
its quivering body. Rod-hot irons
would hardly have made it loosen its
gaip of the bird. Then the keeper and
the others helped Flouso in carrying the
remaining tiger-a into the rage. _
