An answer was written by the Arm. and tho

Vesterd ay afternoon Mr. Erwin called at tbe
Leonard street station and Identified the prop
erty as his own. He said that tho thief, after
. leaving the hotel, sent a messenger boy with
a noto for Mr. Erwln's dress-suitcase, which
was on the table in his room. The dress-salt
iase was duly delivered. It contained clothing
nod two sets of valuable shirt studs.
Tho hall boy who had seen tho thief also
came to the station, and Identified Hobert&on
as the man who entered Mr. Erwln's room nn
Dec. 10. The handwriting of the note to Mr.
Erwin is the same as that of a mv&sace in
Robertson's possession signed by Henry
Worthington. which Robertson admits ho him
self wroto for Worthington.
Uq lays all his troubles to orthington.who.
he says, got him to present tliu checks at Pow
era's store, and for whom bo undertook the
buying of carpets for tho Hnrtford Military
Academy. The detectives say that Worthing
ton and Robertson aro tho same porson. Rob

Agent Wllbar to. rzsttata &, Bates ttf
f Fillers for.Sataa-ajltd Wrapprs.
Tho wholesale-tobacco trade is exolted ovor
clmrgcs'of fraud in tho Importation ot tobacco
at undervaluation. As far ns tho Government
Is conoornod thero aro only two kinds of to
bacco, technically called " flllora " and " wrap
pers." On Imported fillers the duty I thirty
flvo cents, and on wrappers it Is 52 a pound.
About a month ago tho Treasury Department
received a lettenfrom n manufacturer. sup
posed to be In Tampa, say lag that tho authori
ties ct Key West wore very las In oxnmlnlpg
tlio balos ot tobacco that camo1 through
that poit. nnd Uiat it they (ook tho
troublo to look moro closely they would
find that in many bales ot fillers wero
hidden largo quantities of wrappers, upon
which the Importer thereby saved $1.05 a
pound. A. T. Tingle, chief of the Treasury
agents, thereupon ordorod Agent Charles B.
Wilbur to Investigate the matter. Thoro are
at present about 50,000 bales of tobacco In
storago hore, and Mr. Wilbur Is going to ex
aiplnti every ono of thorn. . .
.Mr. E. A. fichrooder of Scbroodor.t Bon, 178
Water street, one ot the largest importing
firms in this country, said yesterday: ,
" The Qovernmont is going about this thlhg
With moro hnsto than spend. Although the
law recognizes only wrappers and fillers, the
trade recognizes a great many grades of to
bacco between good wrappers und good fillers,
nnd oiten the distinction is so fluo that even
experts cannot tell which is which. It then
becomes a matter of judgment, lor instance,
an exporter In Cuba who is not a good iudge
ot tobacco will send un sovural bales for fill
ing purposes. Tho lmportor. however, .may
decldo that the tobacco Is good enough for
wrapping purposes, and will use it as such.
The customs esnnilner thou must use his own
"All of 'the large Importing houses send
their invoices and bills to tho Customs Houso
for inspection, They nover ropock the tobacco
hero, but sell it just as it come. If the ox
nmlnersoesn lot of bales marked HUers. and
involcod as such, and pusses them for fillers,
the importer Is not going to ear to him. 'Boo
here, I think I can use this tor wrappers.
Please add 31.05 a pound for duty.'
"Then again it may happen that tho ox
porter, after packing several balos of wrappers
and several bales ot tlllors, has enough of both
kinds of tobacco left to make an extra bale.
He will then mark them both In tho Invoico. so
that the examiner, if he takes the troublo to
look, cannot help seolug thorn.
"Now. all that Is not fraud. Thoro may be
a few small manufacturers who Import bales
In ivhtli wrnlin.ni nra liMiInn liv I.vah nf
fillers, but iTi venturo to bet that out of tho
50.000 bates Mr. Wilbur-won't And a thousand
whore this has been done. Mr. Wilbur may
decido tbut a groat many bales of fillers aro lit
to uso as wrappors. That Is all very good, but
It will only show that ho dliTorswith tho ex
aminer and tho importer. Not that I moan to
cast any reflection upon Mr. Itoborts, tho to
bacco oxpert of tho Custom Houso. Ho is a
thoroughly competnnt mnn. but. ns I said,
oven tbo host experts will somotimes differ as
to the uur.llty of certain gradeB of tobacco."
Mr. snrtorlus ot Hartorlus A Co.. 871 Pearl
street, sold: "This Investigation is putting
us nil to groat delay and exponas. It is
highlv Improbable that any Urge llrra would
stoop to defraud the Govornmcnt In tills way.
It nn lmportor wants to do it. he must take his
customers into his confidence, which is a very
risky thing to do.
"Although we frequently have tobacco
which we buy as fillers and invoice ns such
appraised as wrappors. it nevor liappona
that they doclde that tobacco Invoiced as
wrappers is only fit for filling purposes and
reduce tho duty to thirty-five cents. It is all
the fault of the McKlnley bill. They say they
aim It only at Sumatra tobacco, but neverthe
less it Interferes with tho Havana trade."
Mr. Wilbur would not say how many cases of
fraudulent packing he had discovered.

Suamokin. Dec. 18. In t.ho middle of a tun

Catawlssa. It was 1 o'clock when Engineer
Fishor reached Catawlssa. and ordors were
given to him to meet a south-bound freight at
Lofty, five miles distant. A blinding snow
storm was going on. Putting on a full head
of steam, tho train dashed into tho long tunnel
at tho rate of forty miles an hour. The fire
man on Fishor's engtno saw tliu flash ot a
headlight at the opposite end ot tho tunnel.
"My God," ho shrieked, "horo com en a
train." He jumped on the footboard to leap
off, but the sides of the tunnel wero almost
grazing the engine and ho could not get off.
Crawling back to their soatn the men clinched
their teeth, and ono raug the bell. Tho other
applied the air brakes and sounded tho
whistle. ' Tho occupants of tho cab of thn ap
proaching engine, thawing a heavy train,

Residents from Catawlssa hurried to tho
scene, und, after working a few hours, mude

to make their wny toward the engines ond ex

found between a tender and a cab, with his leg
almost plnchod off. Conductor Rinkor's arm
and part ot a leg were mashed. Jones and
Camton wero released from two broken box
cars of tho south-bound train. They were
under two ear wheels, and their spines and
heads wore badly bruised. Up to 8 o'clock to

A Surrender of Definite Bonds Proposed
In Place of at Cash Deposit,
Froderlo P. Olcott, William L. Bull. Henry
Budgo. Charles D. Dickey. Jr.. Hugh It. Oar
den, and John QUI. tha committaoof Virginia
bondholders, met yesterday. An Advisory
rrd composed ot Orover Cleveland. Edward
J.'Plielps, Thomas F. Bayard. Georgo 8. Coe.
and Ooorgo a. Williams, is associated with tho
bondholders' commtttco in tho effort to bring
about a settlement of tho Virginia dobt on
terms equitable alike to tnouiu Dominion ana
to Its creditors. Cables wero received yester
day from tho English croditor announcing
their concurrence in tho negotiations eon
ducted by tho two committee with Gov. Mu
Kinnoy und his nsociutos on tho Virginia
Tha plan is that Mrginia shnll issuo nine
teen millions of 100-year bonds to tako up
twonty-elghtmllliousofindohtodncsi. thn new
bonds to puy two per cent for ten years and
three percent, forthe remaining ninety years.
In approving it tho Advisory Board say:
We should consider It unfortunate for the creditors nnd
all concerned. If tbe subject of this Indebtednnas and Its
settlement should be allowed tn again fall tntn the vor
tex of popularpolltlcal discussion and dltnuto.
We are decided In our judgment that. If the terms of
settlement now proposed aro rejected, the prosprct uf
an advantaguoua agreenuut tu tba tulurolsrarfroin
Gov. McKlnnoyhn8 reminded the Olcott and
Cloveland committees that under iho resolu
tion of tho Virginia I.eglslnttiro by which ho
and his Commission wero appointed It is pro
vided that " no prniiosition shall bo enter
tained by the Commission which is not biip
ported by a deposit. In cash of not less thnuono
million dollars, to insure the faithful porform
nncoof the propooals. If uccontcd and ratified."
Gov. McKinncy adds, in a lettor to tho com
mittees: " You make no mention of this fnet,
which tho law makes a condition piecedontto
tho couBlderution uf your important propo
sition." Mr. Olcott repjying. nays that his commit
tees rqprosent B. per cent of tho creditors,
and aro propurod to ninko delivery to thn
Iiroper ofueors of Virginia of the defaulted
londs to that amount, und Mr. Olcott adds:
This, we suppose, is a far more complete and satis
factory emarantee for pcrfurmauce n our part than a
deposit of one or er n tl ve million of duller. Tho ubject
ot the art was evidently to insure tho performance or
the contract with tbu Mate, ir made. And If. from the
nature of tbe propositi we thall make, a far better
guarantee Is given. v.e presume that Its objert will lo
aubstautlally accomplished, and that It wmild be nee
less to require us to tlo tip million uf dollars without
practical benefit tu any one,
Virginia, through Gov. McKInney. is yet to
reply to this.
The Olcott Committee, It will bo remom

throo percent bonds, or Sllt.000.000 of two

was accom ed.
The bonds nnd intornst coupons nro to bo of

"I'm somewhat surprised at tho appoint
ment, boeausn I understood from Mr. Rlnlnn
that Mr. Elkins had not time to glvo to the po
sition." " But what is its political significance 5"
" That phuso of the Question I don't like to
talk about I'm trying to keep out of politics.
If you accomplish anything you aro called
everything thnt Is unpleasant and unkind, and
if you fail In carrying an election you aro put

ttos, any way. From u business standpoint I
regard the appointment as an excellent ono."
