LINCOLN , July 10. ( Special. ) To the
Lincoln Uxclso board a inaa named Cash
Williams lias lolJ a rather sormtlonal itory.
H Involves .tlio character or one of the pollca
officers of 'tho city , Jack Fushla. Williams
nays dial some time In August , two years
ago , ho was rolling organs In the northwest ,
hl. < lieailauurtcrs being at Lodge Pole , Cheyenne
onne county. IIo claims that In order to do
a thriving business In that locality It was
necessary to resort to bribery. Fushla , ho
OBITS , was acquainted In the neighborhood ,
and ho employed lilm as an agent to "sugar
up" the refractory school board ofllclals , who
refused to purchase organs when requested toTe
( To eo. Kushla had told hint where to place
money wlioro It would do the most good ,
/is a result of the "sugaring" process he
had sold ihreo organs to schools In that
locality. Shortly nfter this ho was assailed
l > y a mob , taken away from his boarding
house , and furnished with a coat of tar , after
which ho was rolled In a load of wheat.
The mob , he avers , also took from him notes
aggregating $ SOO and $75 In cash. These he
never recovered , although the amounts of all
Hut ono note were subsequently secured by
ills 11 rm. Williams claims that Fushla was
a prominent factor In the mob. He says
that when ho went to Chcycnno to have
the parties prosecuted ho was Informed by
the county attorney that there wan an or
ganized gang there , and that an attempt at
prosecution would be useless.
Fus.hla'a story to the excise board , It Is
salJ , completely refutes many of the alleged
&use.i of this trouble , while agreeing In the
main with the details. Fushla says that
Williams had manifested an unhealthy pen
chant for the society of young girls , and
tllat the mobbing was duo to thnt fact. lie
had boon warned to leave town , but had de
fiantly refused , and supplemented his refusal
with a number of vile Insinuations against
.I/ the purity cf Ihe women of that neighbor
hood. Then it was that Williams had bpen
rolled In tar and subsequently In a load of
wheat. Fushla denies having had any hand
In thn affair. The excise board baa taken
the names of a number of parties living In
that vicinity , and will write them for further
PREFEURKD TUB PEN.
The boy arrested yesterday for the burg
lary of J. P. Hendry's store will not go to
the penitentiary , as anticipated. IIo gave
his nameas Charles Wlllhma when ar
rested , but today , when ho confronted Deputy
County Attorney Collins It was discovered
that ho was none other than George Jacobs ,
a boy who had boon sent to the reform
school from this city and had been paroled.
At first the bay denied this and pretended
that ho did nod recognize Collins , but It
didn't work. Ho wanted to go to the pent- '
tontlary Instead of tack to the reform school.

Money to Spnml.
LINCOLN. July 10. ( Spsclal. ) There was
a. busy scene In the vicinity of the Land
Commissioner's odlce today. The Hoard of
Public Lands and Hulldlngs was In session
and Its principal business was receiving bids
for repairs on the Institute for the Deaf at
Omaha. Tha board has $11,300 to spend In
this way , $5,000 for plumbing and connec
tion with laboratories and $ G,300 for over
hauling old buildings , concreting basement ,
covering steam pipes and general repairs.
Architect Fisher of Omaha presented a
number of plans and specifications covering
the latter appropriation. Ill * proposition was
to prepare plans , solicit bltli and superintend
the entire work for 5 per cent of the total
cost. He , however , made his first proposi
tion In a lump sum and left the matter with
the board. Architect Gills also submitted a
Md for preparing plans and looking after the
work until It was. satisfactorily completed.
The board will consider the various bids and
report Its findings later. J. II. Craddock and
several other parties submitted bids for the
addition to the Soldiers' and Sailors' Home
at Grand Island. The last legislature appro
priated $12.000 for thla purpose.
Warden George W. Leldlgh was at the
governor's and auditor's offices today , look-
iftg up the matter of awards tor escaped pris
oners. He says that a number of paroled
prisoners have taken French leave and their
present whereabouts are unknown. Ho Is
afraid that the knowledge of this state of
affairs coming to the ears of others may re
sult In more levanting and also a lack of
discipline at the prison. In a recent search of
cells the warden found eight or ten knives
secreted by prisoners. Some of them were
regularly made , while others were manu
factured from bits of scrap Iron picked up
around the prison.
Today the Hoard of Public Lands and
Buildings ordered fifteen patients at the Nor
folk Insane asylum sent to the Home for In
curables at Hastings.

Bankers' association began Us second minimi
convention at the Grand Union hotel this

annual address was made byYMIIam C.
Cornwell of Buffalo , president of the associa
tion. Ho said In part : "Losses from bad

and dividends of banks. The estimated figures

as been appointed to take up the question

Tactically given away. While the low
narglns of profit from Interest continue ,

f think our association Is now large
nough and strong enough to begin to co
operate with other state associations system
atically on the broad questions which Interest
us all and I suggest this for your consldara-
lon as n part ot next year's work.
THE MONEY QUESTION.
"In the great question of the day , the ques
.Ion of currency , the question of money , the
association has shown a wholesome though
not yet aggressive Interest. I am of the
opinion that our group meetings should hereafter
after Include discussions of the currency and
of the public events affecting commerce , to
which the public will bo Invited. The
bankers may thus do their part toward the
education of the people , and be Instrumental
I n bringing about that stability and scientific
character so sadly lacking In our banking
and financial system , and without which a
vast part of our wealth , of products and of
labor , are constantly wasted , and our whole
commercial structure subjected to periodical
llaaslcr. Tlio subject of the currency has
been discussed at the various group meet
ings , the members have been studying upon
It I nnd the horizon has been clearing.
The banker 18 trained from his earliest
Inception In the business to regard strict
honesty as tbe one qualification , without
which nothing else Is for a moment to bo
considered. If the. bank clerk at tbo very
lowest round of the ladder shows the least
symptom of Its lack ho Is , or should be ,
dropped from his position. As ho advances ,
trustworthiness becomes moro and moro tlio
element to bo looked for , and when he
reaches ofllcershlp the trust ot the com
munity nnd of his associates In his strict
Integrity is tno gauge of his advance.
Honesty la the bulwark of permanent
prosperity. Kingdoms not founded upon
It nro swept away by adversity. Enter
prises which seek to avoid Us stringent
provisions are forced into dissolution.
The nation whose currency lacks the clement
ment of honesty Is doomed to commercial
and monetary miasma , and disease through
out the entire period , durng | which that lack
continues. Dishonest currency la the hot
bed of poisonous sedition , revolution and
PROFITS OF THE SYNDICATE.
Reports were presented by Treasurer James
L. Cannon ot New York , Secretary Charlw
Adslt ot Hornellsvllle and also by the council
of administration. An address was made by
Brayton Ives , president of the Western Na
tional bank ol New York City , on "The
Bond Contracts. "
Referring to the profits of the syndicate
Mr. Ives said : "It Is not likely that under
the most favorable conditions the expenses
will bo less than Vi per cent , so that the cost
ot the bonds will be $1.00 and the measure ot
profits will be the difference between this
price and $1.12V4 , the figure at which tbe
bonds were sold. Inasmuch as & per cent Is
a customary banker's commission for the
placing ot a large loan , It can not bo con
sidered that 6 % per cent Is an excessive
profit In this case , especially In view of
possible additional expenses.
"It Is true that a considerable portion of the
syndicate subscribed for the bonds when
they were Issued at public , sale and bought 11
such * amounts as were allotted to them. But
they were simply exercising the same privi
lege as was given to all. "
A paper by Mr. E. B. Walker
of Toronto , president of the Canadian
Banking association , was also read. In It
comparison was made of the Canadian sys
tem of banking with that of tbo United
States , as well as the Baltimore and Carlisle
plans , Mr. Walker holding that the Canadian
plan was more advantageous to bankers ,
merchants and the general ccmmunlty at large
than the others.
WAS WILLING TO LKNI ) JUS GUI.U
llusilu's Itulor JMndo a Friendly Ufter to
the United Stilton.
CHICAGO , July 10. A special from Wash
ington to the Post says : Discussion of the
gold reserve In the treasury and , the action
past and probable of the Morgan-Rothschild
bond syndicate brought to light today that
Czar Alexander III. of Russia offered to loan
the United States all the gold necessary to
maintain the reserve at any figure desired.
The friendly tender was declined by Presi
dent Cleveland because , after several weeks
of consideration and telegraphic correspondence
spondence- back and forth between Washing
ton , and St. Petersburg , It was decided that
the president had not the authority to Issue
bonds or otherwise Incur Indebtedness on be
half of the government. Since then the power
of the president and the secretary of the treas
ury lias been determined and It the offer
were again made by the present Russian ruler
It might bo accepted.
The story of the proposition made by the
czar and the way It was received by the
president and his advisors was ono ot the
best kept secrets of the white bouse. Although
the Incident occurred some two years ago , no
hint at It haa reached the public until now.
It , WRS onie time In May , 1S93 , that the
State department was surprised by the re
ceipt of a communication from Andrew I ) .
White , the American minister at St. Peters
burg , outing that the ctnr had , through M.
Do t Uteri , offered to the president ot the
United sutM any Amount ot gold required
to carry the treasury over through the pend
ing crisis. Help wax uecJod at that time.
Tha now administration had been In power
but a tow month ; ! nnd the llnmtclnl question
was pressing on Mr. Cleveland for lolutlnn.
The \YIUon bill had b n framed but not
pasted nnd the business ot the country WAI
already suffering from the depression which
later 1 grew Into ft commercial and financial
ptnlc. The goU reserve In the treasury was
being depleted steadily nnd rapidly by the
monthly purchases ot silver bullion under tha
. Sherman law , and the receipts at gold from
customs had fallen ofT ro that each month
aw the treasury drained of Its gold. The
country was clamoring for relief and the
president \\as considering the advisability ot
: alllng congress together In nn oxtrn session
which ho did subsequently to legislate on
Hie llnnnclal situation and to repeal the Sherman -
OFFER FORMALLY MADE.
It was In the midst of such a situation
ihat Secretary ot State On-sham presented nt
a cabinet mevtlnn ono morning the letter
ho had received from Minister White. The
czar's offer ot assistance was direct but
simple. Mr. White stated In hit official
communication to tliu State department that
| ho ' had been called upon by M. Da Glcrs , who
said the czar luul instructed him to confer
with the American representative at the
court of St. Petersburg and to. Inform him
that the czar stood ready fa make a personal
loan to the president ot the United States
ot gold to the amount of $60OOI > .000 , or ns
much moro as might be doilrcd , at a nominal
rate of Interest and for an Indefinite period
ot Urn * . The Interest asked was a fraction
moro than 2 per cent. Nothing was said
about security , and U was evident that Alex
ander III. believed that the president could
take this money nnd apply It to the need
of the United States treasury with but little
formality and that he had the power to do o.
It was a generous manifestation of the goad
will of the Russian czar toward the United
States and n striking Illustration ot his do-
slro to assist this country In any way.
As It mny be supposed , the letter produced
a great sensation In the cabinet. The presi
dent was much affected by this evidence of
esteem on the part of so powerful a per
sonage as the autocrat of all the Russlits.
There was something besides the friendly re
lations ot the two nations Involved In the
offer. The czar Intended his tender of
financial help as a personal compliment to
the president ot the United States. Tile
president nnd the cabinet debated the propo
sition long and earnestly. Secretary ot the
Treasury Carlisle was In favor of accepting
the loan , but ha doubted the power of the
president nnd himself to make debts for the
government without special authority of con
gress. The matter was discussed at every
cabinet meeting for n week or two nnd
mecntlmo there was much telegraphic corre
spondence between Washington and St.
Petersburg relative to the conditions on
which the Russian emperor proposed to make
the loan ot this enormous aum.
After all communications had been re
ceived nnd the Russian monarch's offer had
been laid before the cnblnct , It was evident
that the czar was not bothering himself
about the manner or method ot the trans-
actJon. Reduced to Its simplest terms , the
czar's offer was that ho would advance ns
much gold as the United States treasury
might require and would accept as security
therefor President Cleveland's personal note
until such time as congress should convene
and authorize the Issue ot bonds.
SIMPLY THROUGH FRIENDSHIP.
In short , the czar wished to help the
United States with a loan ot $50,000,000 or
moro and he was not particular whether he
received any security or not. It was to be a
personal matter- with him nnd It was plain
that he did not quite understand why the
president did not treat It In the same way.
One nation needed' money and the ruler ot a
friendly country proposed to lend the chief
executive of the distressed people money to
help them. It was Just a friendly act re
quiring In the opinion of the czar no red
tape or circumlocutory officialism. But
President Cleveland and his cabinet felt , after ,
carefully considering the proposition In all
Its aspects , they could not accept It. The
State department therefore BO notified Min
ister White , who In turn Informed M. do
Qlcrs that the American president , while
profoundly grateful for the czar's kind offer ,
was prevented by law from Incurring obliga
tions of this kind without the consent ot
congress. The majority ot the cabinet was
In favor of taking the czar's loan and the
president looked kindly upon the proposition.
There Is no doubt but for the legal objec
tions raised by ono ot the lawyers In the
cabinet the loan would have been accepted
and ono probable result would have been the
reduction In the rate of Interest on large
loans , especially to nations.
It Is not Improbable that when the ar
rangement with the Morgan-Rothschild
syndicate shall , have expired the government
may apply to the Russians for a loan should
one be necessary. Alexander Is not on the
throne now , but It Is said that Emperor
Nicholas Is quite as ardent an admirer of
the United States as was his distinguished
