at tho fact, tbo mattor being kept a secrot
from everybody olso.
Detectivo Sampson worked diligently on
tho cose, and last night it was ascertained
beyond doubt that tho defaulter was in Tor
This is the first loss by defalcation since
tho administration of Sub-Treasurer Ilill
bouso. During his term a stamp agont, who
had a desk in tho Sub-Treasury
building, slolo 185,000. Tho only
wonder is that JaokBon did not carry
away a groater sum than he did, for Mr.
Cauda states that tho paying-teller handles
each day sums ranging from $1,000,000 to
3,000,000 and has paid out over $9,000,000 in
a single day. Tho paying-toller has not access
to tho vaults, but necessarily handles enor
mous amounts, and no way has ovur yet been
devised for tho perfect protection of banking
and other institutions against tho speculations
of a dishonest paying teller.
Jackson Is about thirty-six years of age.
He is a son of tbo Secrotary of tno Now York
Traot Society, who livos in Bosevillo, N. J.
Ho has beon twico married, and has a,
daughter by each wife. His prosent
wifo is a daughter of a Mr. Lasollo,
of Mount Vornon; Westchester County. His
family relations havo not beon agroeablo of

that this domostio troublo was tho cause of
Jackson's flight, for ho took tho monoy in

been employed in tho National Currency
Hank and in other financial institutions.
Ho had been faithful, and promotion had
followed promotion, till ho was mado paying-toller,
with a salary of $3,000 per annum.
Ho is a IlopubUcan, but had boen retained
through the Oloveland Administration. He
possessed excellent qualities for tho position,
uoing self-possessed and capablo.
The money taken by Jackson was from tho
"paying-toller's cash," and ho hud no access
to the vaults, tho rules in this respect having
beon made mora stringent than ever beforo
on tho advent of Bub-Treasurer
Canda. Tho paying-teller's cash was
examined frequently, and Jackson's cash was
critically counted on tho 13th inst., as is ous
tomary, and again an tho 17th tho cashier
counted tho monoy in Mr. Jackson's drawer,
as tho latter was dotaiued at homo by ill
ness. It was correct at that time. All tho
indications aro that tho $10,000 was ab
stracted on Saturday, tho dav of the depar

of tho robbery was mado boforo business

, Mr. Canda and Detectivo Sampson declined
to say whether any steps had been takon for
tho approhension of Jackson, but Mr. Canda
remarked that he would be very glad if some

ipproved on Jan. 23 last.
James T. Woodward, who is President of
the Hanover National Bank, said this morn
ing i " Wo shall not bother ourselves about
the matter. Indoed, $10,000 is a more
bagatelle to tho vast sums handled

is amply able to make good tho
amount lost, and we will not be called upon.

the iron business, and is well to do. Ho is
an old, substantial business man, who has

"How can he? No law can prevent one
man from robbing another. It may only pun

The defaulter is described as of swarthy
f complexion; short and vory stout in staturo,
and wearing a full block beard trimmed
close. His chin is a peculiar one, receding
I considerably, and he is knock-kneed.
He wore whon last seen a dark suit
and a bean-Back ovorcoat. Ho is an invet

" What statement ?" inquired Mr. Jackson.

reporter, showing him the acoount in The

it was only a passing estrangement.''
For somo timo prior to tholr separation
Jackson and his wife had been living in tho La
Tourotti House, Bergen Point.
Inspeotor Byrnes lias boen asked to help
the United States officers to traco Jackson.
It is tho gonoral impression at Polico Head
quarters that an indictment will bo found
against Jackson at oncd, and that inasmuch
as it is tho United States Treasury which has
boon robbod, Canada may not provo a safo
refugo for him.
AtLa Tourctte Houso, in Bergen Point,
Jackson has been well known. About ten
years ago, Bhortly after ho buried
his first wifo, ho was introduced
to Mr. James Bowman, tho proprietor, and
Bpent tho entire summer there. After that ho

Last June, accompanlod by his second
wife and thoir soven-year-old daughter Allco,
he engaged apartments for the summer. Ii
was current talk that Jackson's domestic lifo
was anything but happy. Two months
ago, or thereabouts, Jackson joined
the Staten Island Athletic Club and spent a
Sood doal of his timo at the clubhonso with
'.. L. Wattenberg, of lOt Broad streot, who
was also a guost at La Tourctte. His habits,
until within a month wore regular.
A week ago last Saturday ho loft Borgen
Point, purchasing a tioket for New York. Ho
settled ills hotel bill at tho samo timo, but
took with him in leaving noth
ing but a Email hand-bag. His
wife and daughter wero left behind. Then
rumors of divorce proceedings wore heard,
and it is claimed that tho wifo told guosts
that sho intended to bring suit ogaiuBt her
husband, ono of tho grounds being desertion.

On Tuesday a detectivo claiming to have
beon sent from Inspector Byrnes's office,

A PINE LAND KING.
Earning a Dollar a Day Thirty Years Ago,

Frederick Woyerhcuser, as the head of ono of
the most Important commercial corporations on
the continent, has long occupied in a large degreu
the attention of tho business world. Tho man Is a
phenomenon of achievement. He baa mado him
self what hols, and be has made for himself the tides
which other men wait for to carry thorn to success.
Physically and mentally, he was moulded by na
ture for business conquests. Three decades ago
piling slabs for a dollar per diem at Rock Island-to-day
controlling tho largest lumber interests In
world; such IB the epitome of his llfe.and between
the Hues it Is easy to seo what manner of mauls
"the Bismarck of tho Northwest. "
Born In lTimsla about fifty-four years ngo, he
camo to this country while yet In early manhood,
nnd his adventurous spirit carried him us far west
as Illinois. Ho was alono nnd without a dollar,
but, Btartlng as a common laborer, ho savod his
earnings and watched his opportunities. He
startedln tbo lumber business In ltock Island with
Mr. Deuckmann, who Is still his partner, and who
Is hlB brother-in-law, and tho linn hnd n capital of
less than $l,uou. He steadily extended the busi
ness and soon laid the foundation for his future
success. The rapid growth of that section of tho
country, In tho years succeeding bis location there,
and the sudden expansion of every avenuo of com
mercial enterprise, were tho opportunities which
ho made to bear such golden fruits'-:-
Somo Idea of the extent of bis Interests may bo
obtained from tho fact that ho Is President of tho
Mississippi River Logging Company, of tho Chlp
pewn Miinbcr and Boom Company, of the Rock
Island Lumber Company, of the Ohlppcwn Logging
Company and of tho Beef Slough Boom Company,
and u leading member of the Shell LaVe Lumber
Company, of the Barrouctte Lumber Company, of
tho North Wisconsin Lumber Company, of tho
White Kher Lumber Company, and of the Cloquet
Lumber Company, and is associated In the per
sonal owncrshirof many thousand acres of plno
lauds In Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. It
should be borne hi mind that tho MUslsslppI Log
ging Company, one of the leviathans of tho lumber
business In this section, mono embraces concerns
In Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin, whoso
aggregate capital fs about ITO,000,000 and which
cut 1,000,000 feet of lumber a year. Ho
Is said to be heavily Interested In the Burlington
road and Is the owner of the Palms mlno on tho
Clogcblu range. His Individual wealth nobody
knows, but the corpornto capital which he con
trols Is probably not extravagantly stated at f 100.
000,000. It will thus be Been what a bagatelle It
was to Frederick Weyorhncuser to buy the Kan
Claire plant and plno lands of the Eau Clalra Lum
ber Company the second largest lumber concern
In America In point of production and that It
would not ' ' break " him to buy the largest In lum
ber production the Knapp, Stout & CO. Com
pany. Common agreement among his associates
places him at the forefront of all tno lumber cor
porations In which he Is Interested. They hae
tho utmost faith In his experience and abilities,
and his word Is law. They bcllciethat no other
man In America knovt s bo much about plno as ho
Mr. Weyerhaenscr, as all men of his tempera
ment and habits are at his age, Is still in the prime
of life. Of medium height and broad and robust
frame, he la active In his moementa and fluent In
his conversation, which Is marked by a slight Ger
man accent nnd the misplacement sometimes of
those two troublesome consonants " t " and " d. "
He wears a rather cloudy-trimmed beard of Iron
?ray. In dress ho Is plain and unostentatious,
lock Island has nlvrujs been his home and he lives
In a handsome residence there. Ills family con
sists of sq o ral sons mill daughters, his sons being
In business and showing bright aptitude for busi
ness life. Mr. Weyerhaeuser Is said to have al
ways been quite abstemious In his habits, using
beer and wines In moderation and using no to
bacco. Ills wines are made from Ihe product of
his own vineyards. With a fair education acquired
as a young man, he possesses much taste for liter
ary, sclcntlllo and historical reading. Ho has
often said that of all historical figures he most ad
mires Martin Luther and Paul the Apostle.
While building his own fortunes. Mr. Weycr
hscuscr has aided many a man with moral and
financial backing, and in selecting employees for
Important positions has always ploVcd merit from
the ranks without regard to adventitious circum

IFrotn a JV.to York Lttttr.
I went with a girl friend jenterday to sco her
beautified. Tho place was no factory of hair
colorings or complexion-washes, but the highly
professional New York Hospital, ono of our great
public benefactions, au(J,tho bcautlflcr was staid
and orthodox Dr. Bull. The maiden was already
pretty, save that sho had tho dlstlguruturo known
as harelip. The Improvement will make her en
tirely klasable. Too few parents arc n tiling,
through false kindness to their children or through
Ignorance, to snbmlt their little ones to the knifo
of tbo Burgeon at an early age; and as a result we
have around us unsightly persons who might have
harihelr features moulded Into those of good-looking
men and women. The case la point was that
of a girl of about seventeen, who had a single hare
lip, with protrusion of the teeth of the upper law.
There was also a cleft In that Jaw which, of course,
complicated the deformity. Had the operation been
performed In lnfanoy the chances are that the wo
man would havo shown very slight, If any traces of
the surgeon's work; but aa It Is, a more or less plain
scar will always be visible. Bbe was put under
ether, and a small slice cut off one side of the fis
sure In the lip, and a slice off the other side, near
ly, but not quite to the bottom of the lip. Then
these two raw edges were brought together and
stitched, and the piece of flesh that remained from
the second Incision was carried along the base of
the Up, so that no Indentation should be after
wards observed. Tho surgeon's plastic hand now
went to work to fashion the disfigured member
Into one that shonld serve her well tor the remain
der of her days. This then completed the Up, and
therewere left only the protmdlng teeth to rem
edy. With two or three sharp blows of the mallet
upon the chisel the top parts of the two aides of tho
Jaw were separated, brought Into apposition by
depressing tnein, and secured In place. Then tho
operation waa ended; and it showed Immediate
signs of great and lasting Improvement In appear
ance one which cannot fall to be of vaat benefit
to her as a woman. She has never voluntarily
smiled since ahe was old enough to know of her
disfiguration, so fearful was ahe of displaying It,
A month hence she can begin a lite of smiles.
