tlon of Judge Cov this morning by
Messrs. Cook nnd llr-.wning, cnun&cl for

ot the New Orleans Club thnt Widnor

Col. Cook called tlio attention of tlio
court to tho fneb thnt Wlilner's contract

tend beyond Sept. .'10, while the iniuno
tion issued by .Tudgo Merrick operated

look the ground that the injunction
could not in justice operate by nnv pos
sibility beyond the lifo of Widner'a con
tract with tho New Orleans Club.
Judge Cox lixed on 1 1 o'clock as the
hour for arguing tills point.
Judgo Cox granted Mr. Cook's motion to
dissolve tho Injunction.

How Sho Acoiiiiiulntoil Money With

50,000 had been suspected in the llc

not have been so unfounded as some de
clared, II was uwsotted that sueli n

are astouiided by tho devclopim hi
in the case of Mrs. Hooker. It so-'ins
Incredible Unit she could have miceeeded
in using seizors and paste-pot. without
being discovered by Ihoso In hoi- room.
It was careful work, requiring skill and
porseveiancc. It could not Imvo been

sixteenth portion from every noto to
mako up tlio one sho is charged witli
taking for her own use. The amount said
to Imvo been taken by Mrs. Hcclcer,
something over S!)U0, reptesonls tlio
work of n few days only. It is not
known how long this had been going on.
Mrs. Hcckcr was in the ofllee a number
of vents. She was only it SOOO clerk.
On Inquiry It, has been learned thnt
Mts. Hcckcr has been for tho past two
or thrc,o years a snug investor in real
estate, owning the liouso In which sho
lives, No. 1L01 N street, nnother in the
rear and several lot on Charlton
Height-, near tho city, on ono of which
sho look a permit Inst spring to build a
gd,000 liouso. Tills house had pro
gressed far enough to need mantels, and
It was because sho had absented heiself
without leave Inst Friday from her desk
" to look for mantels'' when her chief of
division h.id occasion to Imvo her work
overhauled that tho patched notes
which told the story wero dlseoveied.
Tho fcllow-olerks say that this shortage
had iiccumulhlcd In llvo days' work, and
that more than 81,000,000 must have
passed through her hands in tho last two
or three months.
Sho was a young woman of Gorman
parentage, from Hilnois, a widow of
twenty-ilvo or thereabouts, when Gen.
Spinner received her Into his bureau in
1UII,. It was understood that she had n
mother and brother dependent upon her.

Singularly enough, although her mnr
riogo wns known in the Treasury, thu
continued on the rolls as Mrs. Becker,
whilo outsldn she wis known as Mis.
Studley. Her treatment at the hands
or her husband made her nt the time an
object of sympathy in tho olllce. and
othorwls" she parsed for a patient
plodding worker. She had been so
long at tho wheel that her honesty wns
taken for granted, but for tho past two
or. three years she has appealed lu lino
clothing and .jewels and has talked
volubly of a legacy left her by an old
mint in Montreal and of her profits in
real estate investments.
lately, it Is said, she has grown so
reckless as 'to ride to the Department
dully in her carriage. A great deal of
talk sprung up among the other lady
counters, but it was rather taken for
granted that here wns " a man In tho
easQ-' somewhere. Tliero Is now talk
of a probablo nialo confederate outtddc
of the Department, yet thero is a dis
position to suspend judgment till tho
wholo is known. Mrs. Becker lins
been reported 111 of nervous prostration,
since tho exposure, but this week sho
sent for a lawyer and hud a Jong con
ference witli him.

As wheat rises above a dollar tho
bakeis make ready to demand the retail

of wheat from June, 1881, until August,
