Detective Sampson was immediately apprised
of tho fact, tho matter being1 kept a secret

, Dotectivo Sampson worked diligently on
the case, and last night it was ascertained
beyond doubt that tho defaulter was in Tor
This is tho first loss by defalcation since
' the administration of Sub-Treasurer Hill-
house. During his term a stamp agont, who
had a desk in the Sub.Treasury
building, stole 185,000. The only
wonder is that Jackson did not carry
away a greater sum than ho did, for Mr.
Ganda states that tho paying-teller handles
each day Bums ranging- from $1,000,000 to
83,000,000 and has paid out over $9,000,000 in
a slnglo day. Tho paying-teller has not access
to the vaults, but necessarily handles enor
mous amounts, and no way has ever yet been
devised for the perfect protection of banking
and other institutions againBt tho speculations
of a dishonest paving teller.
Jackson is about thirty-six years of age.
He is a son of the Secretory of tne Now York
Tract Society, who lives in-Roseville, N. J.
Ho has been twico married, and has a
daughter by each wife. His present
wifo ia a daughter of a Mr. Lasello,
of Mount Vernon; Westchester County. His
family relations have not been agreeablo of
iate, and two weeks ago Mrs. Jackson ro.
turnod to her father's home. It is believed
that this domostio trouble was the cause of
Jackson's flight, for he took the money in
Jackson was appointed to a clerkship in
February, 1879, by Sub-Treasurer Thomas C.
Acton, on tho recommendation of a host of
-New York's -mosr;(mbta.tial men. He bad
been employed 'in the National Currenoy
Bank and in other financial institutions.
He had been faithful, and promotion had
followed promotion, till he was made paying-teller,
with a salary of $3,000 per annum.
i He is a Republican, but had been retained
' through the Cleveland Administration. Ho
9 possessed excellent qualities for the position.
i being self-possessed and capable.
' The money taken by Jackson was from tho
7 "paying-teller's cash," and ho had no access
to the vaults, the rules in this respect having
been made moro stringont than over bef oro
; , on the advent of Sub-Treasurer
I Cauda. Tho paying-teller's cash was
t examined frequently, and Jackson's cash was
,i critically counted on tho 18th iuBt.-, as is cus-
; tomary, and again on the 17th tho cashier
t , counted the money in Mr. Jackson's drawer,
as tho latter was detalnod at homo by 111-
i , ness. It was correct at that time. All the
indications are that the $10,000 was ab.
' stracted on Saturday, tho dar of the depar
ture of Jackson for Canada. The discovery
, of tho robbery- was made before business
began on Monday morning.
Mr. Canda and Detective Sampson declined
to say whether any steps had been taken for
B the apprehension of Jackson, but Mr. Canda
remarked that he would be very glad if some
one could devise' a way of obtaining his re
turn from Canada, adding : "Of course I
am personally responsible for each of my
Sub-Treasurer Canda is accountable under
the law for the defalcation of any of his em
ployees, and ho isNunder a $100,000 bond,
which is signed by O. P. Huntington, John
I. Blair, William L. Scott. Edward Cooper,
Jose F. do Navarro. James T. Wood
ward, J. H. Abeel, Charles Butler, H. V.
Newcomb and John R. Dos Passos. These
gentlemen are all well-known business men.
They justifiod in $800,000, and tho bond was
approved on Jan. 83 last.
James T. Woodward, who is President of
' the Hanover National Bank, said this morn-
Iing s " We shall not bother ourselves about
the matter. Indoed, $10,000 is a mere
bagatelle to the vast sums handled
. at tho Sub - Treasury. Mr. Canda
is amply able to make pood tho
amount lost, and we will not be called upon.
Mr. Cauda has been extensiyely interested irr
the iron business, and is well to do. He is
an old, substantial business man, who has
. , held many responsible positions of tniBtin
' business life."
" i "Do you think Mr. Canda can bo in any
manner blamed for tho robbery?" asked tho
! 'How can he? No law can prevent one
man from robbing another. It may only pun-
t ish for offenses already committed,"
i The' defaulter is describod as of swarthy
! complexion; short and very stout in stature,
1 and wearing a full black beard trimmed
iWi close. His chin is a peculiar one, receding
IX considerably, and ho is knook.kneed.
( He woro when last seen a dark suit
I and a bean-sack overooat. Ho is an invet-
! crate smoker and of late tho employees at tho
; Bub.Treasury say he haa looked ill and as if
ho had been drinking hard.

lor sorao time prior to their separation
Jackson and his wife had been living In the La
Tourotti Houso, Bergen Point.
., Inspector Byrnos has been asked to help
tno United States officers to trace Jackson.
It is the general impression at Pollco Head
quarters that an indictment will be found
against Jackson at onco, and that inosmuoh
as it is tho United States Treasury which has
been robbed, Canada may not provo a safe
refuge for him.
At La Tourotto Houso, in Borgen Point,
Jackson has been well known. About ten
years ago, shortly after ho buried
his first wifo, ho was introduced
to Mr. James Bowman, the proprietor, and
spent the entlro summer there. After that he
mado frequent calls, both alono and with
companions and, whilo not extravagant or
boisterous, gavo evidence of being " ono of
Last Juno, accompaniod by his second
wife and their seven-year-old daughter Allco,
he engaged apartments for tho summer. It
was current talk that Jackson's domestio life
was anything but happy. Two months
ago, or thereabouts, Jackson Joined
the Staten Island Athletic Club and spent a
Sood deal of his time at the clubhouBe with
I. L. Wattenberg, of 104 Broad street, who
was also a guest at La Tourotto. His habits,
until within a month were regular.
A week ago last Saturday no left Bergen
Point, purchasing a ticket for New York. He
settled liis hotel bill at the samo time, but
took with him in leaving noth.
ing but a small hand-bag. His
wife and daughter wero left behind. Then
rumors of divorce proceedings wero heard,
and it is claimed that the wife told guests
that she Intended to bring suit against her
husband, ono of tho grounds being desertion.
The Friday following Jackson's departure
his wife left, going to nor father's houso In
On Tuosday a detective claiming to have
been sent from Inspector Byrnes's office,
called at tho hotol and made Inquiries about
Jackson. He said ho was making Investi
gations on behalf of Jackson's family, who
feared ho had met with foul play, as no had
not been seen or heard from for a week.

When tho big steamship left her moorings,
tho friends of tho " boss slugger " scrambled
aboard of two tugs in waiting for them, and

the Bleepy sailors aboard tho numerous craft

Washington, Oct. 27. Before the Supreme
Court to-day the counsel for tho Chicago
Anarchists, appeared in behalf of thoir appli
cation for a writ of error.
Gen. Bntler, who represents only Spies and
Fielden, presented his brief. Gen. Bntler
begins his brief by defining the rights, priv
elges and Immunities of a citizon of tho
United States, according to the Constitution,
and then goos on as follows :
If there could be any doubt what Is the meaning
of privileges and Immunities of a cltlten of tbe
United States and how far auch citizen Is protected
by them as with a defensive armor the prisoners
Spies and Fielden ataud npon an Impregnable
ground. It appears by the record that ihey were
born, respectively, citizens of Ger
many and Great Britain, with both of
which nations we have treaties of amity,
friendly Intercourse and mutual protection of the
citizens, which provide In subatanco that from tbe
time of the ratification of those treaties tho cltlzena
and subjects of tboso "countries shall have all
tho privileges, Immunities and protection
of tne law while they are residing
in the other country, then any citizen of the coun
try where they reside may claim at the bands of
his Government And we claim the doctrine of
International law to be, that after such
treaty takes effect no possible changes
of the laws of either country from what they were
at the time of tho ratification can affect the citizen
nf thn nther country. And so sueclallv In reirard
to tho rights of property and life.

prosecuting attorney, he stating at tho time
ihat they wero a part of the leu
ters so seized, were placed before
Spies when on tbe stand, who waa aaked whether
he had received them from Most: objection was
mado to his being so asked. The Court compelled
him to answer, lie Identltlcd them, and his was tho
ohly evidence of identification of the letter he had
received. Discussion was had whether It could be
read In evidence. Objection waa made that it waa
obtained by the State by unlawful seizure and the
Court ruled that that matter could not be invest!-
This being so, tbe only question which arises here
Is whether a foreigner. hU rights, privileges and
Immunities protected by treaty fully and equal
to those with which tbe first citizen of
the land la clothed, never to be
obanged by any power, savo war from what they
wero at tho time they occurred, can be wholly
abrogated, set asldo and trampled upon
by a State Court and there can bo no re
dress to the Supreme Court of the United
States because no means hare been provlccd to
bring the matter before tbe court by which tbe
.life of tbe party thus to be murdered
can be saved T The Conn will
alao remember the care, tenderness and
caution with which, under the Constitution, the
rlghu of an alien were to be preserved in civil
cases. lie waa always to find Jurisdiction In all
controversies as to property In ihe federal courts
of tbe United Btatea If no chose to appeal to
them, whether process was brought by or against
him. Can It be while such provision was made for
the protection of the alien In his property
that his life might bo taken through
any law enacted by the caprice or by the
misguided political revenges of the States
and tbe Federal Jurisdiction bo wholly In
capable of dealing with the wrongs or errors or
worse of suoh State Jurisdictions for want of
power to enforce tbe laws of the Unltod states,
or of power to Issue process In that regard i

Arguments Begun Deform the Court of Ap
peals at Albany.
Israelii, to Tax xvsxna would.
Amunt, Oct. 37. Tho Court of Appeals
was filled to-day as it was never filled before.
Prominent lawyers, men in various walks of
life and quite a number of ladies were massed
together inside the rail for the Bar and on
the other Bide for tho spectators.
In the latter crowd, far in the rear, stood
Ira Shafer, leaning on a silk umbrella. At
the long table in front of the bench sat the
opposing counsel in tho Jacob Sharp case.
To the left was bright and aggressive De
Lanoey Nicoll, flanked on ono siifo by Judge
George F. Oomttock and on the other by
MoKenzie Sample. On the right Winslow
Page was sandwichod between Bourke Cock,
ran and Albert Bticknoy.
The judges were announood by the crier
at precisely 10 o'clock, and filing in clothed
in their silken robes of office, took their scats
on tho bench.
All eyes were on Mr. Nicoll and a whis
per went about the room as he gracefully
arose. His face flushed a little, but he
f laced his loft arm behind his back and amid
ho noiso incident to such a largo gather
ing said that tho questions wero so
many and the briefs so large that It seemed
almost impossible to argue the case in the
time allowed by the court rules.
He asked that the arguments on each side
bo extended from two to four hours.
Bonrke Cookran seconded this appeal. In
an almost Inaudible voice he said the time
should be of such length as counsel saw fit to
present the caso among themselves.
Chief Judge Kugor (caned slightly forward
and replied that tbe Court thought four
hours long enough for tho oral
argument. The finishing of the arguments
to-day would give the Court a chance for con
sultation beforo it adjourned to-morrow after
noon. Messrs. Cookran, Paige and Htlckney con
sumed two hours In presenting the caso for
Sharp, and it was noon when Do Lanoy
Nicoll arose and, in a quiet, firm voice, be
gan tho presentation of the case of tho
people. At the opening his mannor was re
served and he spoko without gestures, refer
ring occasionally to his brief, which ho had
in his left hand. As he proceeded, however,
ho grew more emphatio and he throw stress
on special points in the argument.
Mr. Nicoll spoke for seventy minutes, and
then Judge Comstock concluded the argu
ment for tho peoplo.
