Story Told of Kaat.
Thomss Nast was a less frequent visitor
to the capital than the others, each of
whom long lived here. But be waa here
many times during the last forty years. On
one occasion heveral years ago be came te
attend a canvasback dinner given at Har
vey's celebrated restaurant. He came away
from New York In great haste, and by ac
cident himself and his dress suit case did
not make due connection. The result was
that he was forced to appear at the din
ner which was attended by many notable
In hi ordinary traveling garb. The large
framed and large-hearted proprietor of th
establishment did not know Nast. But h
was impressed by the appearance of a
short, stout, stubby-whiskered gentleman
who sat at the dinner and seemed uncom
fortable without the customary raiment
and gave the waiters orders that he should
receive particular notice. He alao gave the
guest nis personal attention. This was a
dlstlnot compliment to Mr. Nast, for Mr.
Harvey ha entertained all sorts of dis
tinguished men at hla establishment for
nearly two generations. Nast was de
lighted with Harvey's courtesy a much a

circumstance that Mr. Harvey did not know
him. Later he sent the noted restauranter
a pair of finely executed but grotesque cir
toons. One was of Nast in a short- tailed
coat addressing the canvas-backers. The
other was Harvey, depicted as a prlnco ot
dinner givers and weighing about a ton and
a half. These two have long hung in
frames at the old establishment. Mr. Har

TOLEDO, O., Dec. 25. Warren J. Baker
secretary of the Northwestern Ohio Ma
sonic Relief association, today, for the first
time, make public the secret history of th
looting of Calholle cathedral during the
Mexican war, tells hew It waa done and
how treasure wss burled.
His tongue wss loosened by a dispatch
from Mexico City announcing the discovery
of a chest of diamonds, sapphires, rubles.
pearls and golden Imagea beneath the flag
stone In the chapel of La Voscalnas col
lege In Mexico City.
Mr. Baker's siory rivals the mythical
tales of Captain Kldd and, moreover, bears
the unmistakable stamp ot truth. He says
that his father marched from Vera Cms to
Mexico City with General Scott's army
during the Mexican war. He and a lent
mate, after plotting for wecka, dug thel
way Into some of the richest tathedral an
pillaged them of tlelr fabulous wealth of all
sorts ot valuable stones and huge goldon
For hours they looted, carrying their hur
dens of precious stone to a hiding plac
beneath the flagstones In a cathedral yard,
Shortly afterward Baker'a companion died,
Baker returned to his borne In New York
and then went to Hillsdale, Mich,
Fifteen year after plundering th cathe
drala he confided hi story to an Intimate
friend. Tbe friend wrote to the Mexican
government, asking "if there would be any
chance of a division of the spoils," If h
should tell the government where It could
find the sacred and valuable altar decora
tlon that had been stolen.
In a letter bearing the official seal the
Hillsdale man' received warning that If he
knew of any one who had a hand in the
notorioua pillaging, or If he himself partlc
lpated In It, he would do well to forget
all be knew about It and keep quiet, lest his
life be sacrificed In revenge for the desecra
tlon of the cathedral.
Baker took the advice, but atlll Intended
