Henry Oxnnrd, who is mnkiug

assurances that many leading men
on the Republican sidohad chang

Members of tho Finance Commit
tee, who aro now atwoik ou tho

standing, as the sugar schedule
has not beon touched and they
rofuso to forecast their action. It

Colonel Fishor, Major MoLeod
and othirs interested in tho pro
posed now armory building
ropudiato in toto tho statements
mado in this morning's paper that
a cortain subscription list with a
heading or pioapeolua attached
has been propared for presenta
tion to tho business community
in the hopes that sutfisiont funds
may be raised to start tho work.
Colonol Fishor mado the follow
ing statement of tho affair and
how tho suppoBod prospectus
came into the bauds of the Adver
tiser to a Bulletin representa
tive this morning:
A fow days ago a certain party
came to mo aud asked to bu al
lowed to eulist in tho regulars,
sayiug that he was out of
work and could get nothing to do.
I mlviaed tho man not to enlist,
bityiug that l.o uuht 10 wait n lit
tlo and try and find something
more suitanlc. Knowing that ho
hud beeu connected with the presB
1 thought I would give him a lit
tle writing to do to help him out.
1 told him that the committee on
tho now armory hud very little
timo to spare, but were anxious to
gpt the nrmory project started.
That if ho would draw up a sort
of draft of a pronpectus as a basis
for tho committee to work ou, on
lines which I suggested to him
there and thon, aud which appear
ed in a previous interview pub
lished in tho Bulletin, I would
pay him for his 'work out of my
own pocket. Ho said he
wonld do so, and went off.
I think it was yesterday ho
handed mo a folded paper which I
put in my pocket, not having timo
to read it. When I saw the sup
posed prospectus printed in tho
Advertiser this morning I referred
to tho paper in my pocket and
found that tho wording was iden
tical. I have since beeu inform
ed that ono of the Advertiser mou
had a copy of the document be
fore the origiual was given to me.
"You may state if you wish, as
coming from mo, that the commit
tee on the armory building, con
sisting of Major J. W. Joues,
Captain E. O. Whito and mysdf,
has not yet held a meeting, that
wo have formulated no prospectus
or heading for subscription list or
h ij 'li'i'g o" ! k'nil ,ud that tho
publication of any sinh document
as appeared lu print this morning
has not been sauctionod by the
committoo and thut for myself 1
"You may stato further that I
have nover had any intention of
nor have I evor advocatod tho col
lection of funds by popular sub
.yriyi; p. jy idea Iihs been to
raise funds by meaiiB of couoorts,
ontortaiumonts and dances and to
givo value received for all tho
money we get. Of course, if any
merchant feels like contributing
to tho fund, his donation will bo
gratefully roceivod, but the com
mitteo will not bo found going
round on tiny begging expeditious.
"Tho publication of tho so-called
prospectus is to bo regretted,
but thoso aro the facts of tho mat
ter." Nilbinurlnfi Pnlut.
