NEW YORK, Oct. 2. Marie Layton John

4 son, a dentist of Larchmont, N. Y., with
an office In this city,' waa arresUd tonlgnt
'on a warrant specifically charging her with
4 the grand larceny Of $2,0GO. The total
'amount of her defalcation, however, may,
Jit Is said, amount to $60,000. The com
1 plalnants are officers of the United States
i Playing Card company of Cincinnati and
) New York.
! Mrs. Johnson, whose maiden name was
" 'Marie Layton, was bookkeeper In the New
York office of the company, and In ad
dition acted as private secretary to R.
M. McCutcheon, secretary and treasurer
and manager of the New York branch.
, She was married to Dr. Johnson In 1901,
; but did not leave her position after the
v In April of this year discrepancies are
said to have been discovered In her ac
counts according to the statement given
out by Inspector McClusky, and an ex
amination Is said to have revealed a short
' age of $10,000 between January 1 and April
1 16 In the accounts of the New York office.
' How She Operated.
, The woman's modus operandi Is said to
have been as fellows: The accounts of the
, concern were kopt In the Hanover National
bank, there being a New York and Cin
cinnati account there. Cincinnati would
send a bill of goods to New York, which
would be, sold for 13,000, and that amount
would be placed to the credit of the Cin
cinnati account. But It la alleged Mrs.
Johnson would charge the New York office
' account with $,000, taking the difference
herself. To make the accounts balance she
would then raise a small bill of goods
Hipped from Cincinnati from say $9 to
Mrs. Johnson was discharged from the
employ of the company In April when In
spector McClusky says she admitted de
falcations of $10,600. it waa thought at that
time that her husband, Dr. Johnson, who
has a large practice, would make up the
loss, but this was not done. Further In
vestigations were made into both the New
York and Cincinnati account with the re
suit. It is said, that the defalcations now
amount to $33,000, with a possibility that
they may reach fc,000.
Mra. Johnson Is a tall, slim, pretty
' woman, with fair complexion and brown
hair. It Is said that she speculated In

partment ot the East, with headqusrtrs at
Governor's Island, N. Y.
In explanation of the transfer of these
two officers General Young, chief of staff,
today Issued the following statement:
With a view to enable Major General
Chaffee to become familiar with the duties
vested by law In chief of staff and to
sscertaln the present condition of the mili
tary establishment, before entering upon
their active performance, the president has
directed thst he be ordered to duty In the
War department as assistant to the chief
of staff, and that Major General Corbln
be assigned to command the Department
of the East. This assignment, which Is In
accordance with the wishes of General
Corbln, Is Intended as n. recognition of the
eminent services rendered by him In the
Important office of adjutant general during
the war with Spain and the subsequent
operations In China and the Philippines,
snd Is made with a view to obtaining the
benefit of his great administrative snd
executive ability In the command of the
lsrgest and most Important military de
partment In the United States. Advantage
will be tuken of the assignment to secure
the close, harmonious nnd Intelligent co
operation of officers and troops In carrying
Into effect the new methods of administra
tion which have b"n mad necessary by
the establishment of a general staff.
Franking Privilege Withdrawn.
Postmaster General Payne and Secretary
Wilson were In conference with the presi
dent today. As there were only two cab

could not be dignified by the name of a
As tho result of an opinion rendered by
the Department of Justice, It was decided
that the franking privilege heretofore ex
tended to the government officials of the
Island of Porto Rico no longer could be
The opinion of the attorney general for
the Postofflce departnvfnt Is to the effect
that the territorial and local offices of that
territory are not entitled to the free use
of the malls, because they are not officials
of the United States. The agitation of the
question Is due to the personal Investlga
tlon made of affairs in Porto Rico by Post
master General Payne when he was In that
Island last spring. He found that the
postal receipts were only about 40 per cent
of tho postal revenues, and Investigation
developed the faot that the malls were
unduly burdened by the large quantities
of free matter which they were required
to carry. Even the most Insignificant Offl
clals were found to be exercising the
franking privilege and many of them for
the transmission of private letters and
private property. It Is said that one-third
of the weight of the matter carried In the
malls was sent free of all expense to the
Conditions In Alaskn.
Senator Dillingham of Vermont, chair
man of the subcommittee of the senate
committee on territories, which, on reeom
mendatlon of the president, made a thor
ough Investigation of Alaskan affairs dur
Ing the last summer, bad a half hour'i
conference with President Roosevelt today,
Besides Senator Dillingham, the members
of the subcommittee, with Senators Burn-
ham of New Hampshire, Nelson of Min
nesota and Patterson of Colorado. The
committee spent several weeks In Alasku,
studying tho situation with .a view to sug
gesting legislation for the advancement of
the Interests of the territory.
Senator Dillingham indicated to the
president that the problem is a great one.
Alaska contains almost as much territory
Is Included In that part of the United
States east of the Mississippi, river.
The subcommittee considered the whole
Alaskan situation carefully and gathered
a vast amount of Information which will
be Incorporated In a report to be submitted
to the senate soon after congress shall
convene. It Is expected that her report of
the committee will form the basis of some
Important legislation In the Interest of
the Alaskan territory.
Punishment for Officers.
The president has acted upon the cases
of First Lieutenants Louis M. Hamilton.
Fourteenth Infantry, and Hamilton Foley,
Fifth cavalry, and Becond Lieutenants
Thomas E. Murtaugh, coast artillery, and
Shelby L. Rucker, Philippine scouts, tried
by court-martial and sentenced to dis
missal from the army. He approved the
sentence in the cases of Foley, Murtaugh
and Rucker. A further sentence of Im
prisonment Imposed on Lieutenant Foley,
In addition to his dismissal, was disap
proved. The sentence of Lieutenant Ham
ilton was commuted to a reduction in rank
of 116 numbers, which places him at the
foot of the list of first lieutenants, and he
Is required to make a publlo apology for
certain remarks made In the presence of
a lady which gave offense and on which
his trial was based.
Congress Must Meet.
A good deal of pressure has been brought
to bear on the president to Induce him not
,to call congress Into extraordinary session
In November, but to all callers who nave
spoken to him In that vein he has said
that this government Is committed to the
proposition that the Cuban reciprocity
treaty be made effective at the earliest
possible date, and he regards it as a mat
ter of good faith that this country should
keep Its word. He has declined, there.
fore, to consider any proposition looking
to the abandonment of the Idea of an ex
Commend Act of Bailors.

matter at the time, and since that I don't

was no question as to the securities. Mr.
N. P. Dodge, whom no one will accuse of
being of the machine wing of the party,
met me on the street and told me he wns
surprised that a question should be brought
up over these securities that they are gllt
edged. The published references to this
matter are absolutely Inexcusable."
Mr. Rosewater summarized the charges
which have been made of careless and
questionable management of the county
judge's office during the Vlnsonhaler In
cumbency, ns to the absence of reports or
Information showing the amounts of money
held In trust Snd the failure to mske ac
countings for unclaimed witness fees. Judgo
Vlnsonhaler' reluctance to place Informa
tion In the hands of The Pee when an In
vestigation of the office was In progress
could not help but excite suspicion, said the
speaker, and he declared he considered It a
mistake to put such a man upon the ticket.
Vlnsonhaler in Defense.
Judge Vlnsonhaler was then called upon
and said he disliked the personal trend the
campaign against him had taken, but that
he had nothing to hide or conceal and was
asking for a third term on the strength ol
his record of four years In the county
judge's office. He said that he felt a cam
paign of Insinuations, not charges, was
being made against him, and that he was
willing to faco all charges, confident that
he could disprove them. He accounted for
his failure to furnish Information to The
Bee on the grbund that he did not think
The Bee would deal fairly with him. Con
cerning the Cooley Incident Judge Vlnson
haler said the request waa not for a con
tinuance, but did not say what It was. All
trust funds placed In his hands were still
there, he declared, ready for delivery at the
proper time. Whenever they are capable
of drawing Interest, he said, he has ar
ranged for the same at the highest rate he
could obtain, the Interest to go to th
owner of the money. He had made no
profit from the office, nor wanted any aside
from the salary.
Unclaimed witness fees to the extent of
$138 had been received by the judge from
his predecessor. Judge Baxter, he said and
since that time fees to the amount of $12$,
unclaimed, have accrued. Postal cards are
sent out twice a year to the persona to
whom this money la due.
Pronoses to Make a Showing. '
Judge Vlnsonhaler announced that lists
are being prepared showing the moneys
received In trust for estates and for con
demnation appraisements In litigation, al
though it will take -considerable time to
get It ready. The fact that bills and
salaries In the county judge's office are
paid out of the receipts upon order of the
county commissioner, prevented quarterly
payments to the county treasurer, he said,
as frequently he fees of one quarter did
not cover the expenses, whereas those of
other quarters made up the deficiency.
He denied having profited from the sale
of marriage certificates In his office. He
had discouraged the practice at first, he
said, but after six months or a year per
mitted It, and any profit made was gained
by the clerk handling the certificates, the
judge declared. . . . ,
When Judge Vlnsonhaler had flnlhed Mr.
Rosewater took occasion to deny the truth
of a report quoted by Judge Vlnsonhaler
that he had sent an emissary to the judge's
old home at Marysvllle, Mo., to look up
his record there. Judge Vlnsonhaler ad
mitted that he had merely heard the story
and could not vouch for Its truthfulness

W. F. Gurley attempted to Impugn the
good faith of The Bee by contorted state
merits from The Weekly Bee, which, he
said, had printed a ticket called "the har
mony ticket," with the Intention of making
voters throughout the county believe It
had the endorsement of the harmony meet-
ng. Mr. Rosewater explained that full
perusal of the article would show that no
attempt to deceive had been planned or
carried Into effect and that the ticket had
been presented solely as a combination that
In his opinion best represented all classes
