WASHINGTON. Dec. C Tho supple
mental brief of tho Government in the
caso of Senator Burton of Kansas was
filed in tho Supreme court of tho United
States today. It contends strongly for
tho guilt of tho defendant, although it Is
admitted that the Senator's course In sup
port of tho interest of his client, the Rl
alto company, was not always clear.
Speaking of the uso of political lnfluenco
in tho departments, tho brief saya that
it is effective, and adds:
"Mr Burton's traces wero woll covered.
His association on behalf of himsolf and
his client mako a fair outsldo but ho held
up the investigation becauso lie was Sen
uator and not merely because ho was gen
eral counsel of tho RIalto company; and
the portions of tho Judge's charge ani
madverted on at bar were perfectly ac
curato and Just. If not, tho most dan
gerous evil In this entire situation, viz.:
that intangible, subtle and lnslduous
thing, 'Influence.' can never be reached
oven where tho receipt of compensation
Is plainly shown."
On tho point of punishment It Is re
marked: "Becauso a man occupies a high posi
tion and tho sting of tho Infamy may
therefore be moro bitter to him Is no
reason for saying that that part of tho
punishment should increase the grado of
tho offenso and enlargo his pain and
rights, any moro than If the caso put tho

Too Weak to Attempt Any Identifi
cation of 2en in Custody on
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 6. Notwithstand
ing that scores of deputy sheriffs and
polico officers aro patrolling tho Santa Fe
railroad, nearly all tho way from Daggett
to Needles, and tho surrounding country
la being searched to the remotest corner
for some traco of tho bandit who yester
day looted the Wells-Fargo express car
at Daggett, Cal., after shooting and per
haps fatally wounding Express Mcaonger
Evan Roberts, tho man is still at large.
Tho first suspect arrested, a negro, who
was taken Into custody at Barstow yes
terday, arrived in this city today in
charge of officers, and has been lodged In
the city Jail. Wells-Fargo officials say,
however, that they do not bcllevo ho is
tho man wanted. Several other persons
havo been apprehended at various places
on suspicion, but it is believed that tho
right man has not yet been captured.
Beward of $1000 Offered.
Tho Wells-Fargo Express company has
offered a reward of $1000 for tho capturo
of tho bandit This offer has been sup
plemented by one for a similar amount
from tho Santa Fo Railroad company and
?300 from the State. Tho large reward has
attracted a number of poeses, who arc
searching every foot of tho territory In
the neighborhood of the hold-up where a
man could secrete himself, and It is not
believed that ho can possibly succeed In
escaping. The country for miles In ovcry
direction from Daggott Is a barren desert,
with no avonuo of cscapo excepting by
way of the railway.
Messenger Roberts Is still alive and the
physicians say that ho stands about ono
chance In a hundred of recovering. He
is yet considered too weak lo attempt to
mako any Identification of tho man who
Bandit Took S30O.
. Assistant Superintendent Piidham of
Wells-Fargo said this morning that tho
amount of monoy taken from tho way
safo in the car Is about ?500. Several
checks and drafts, including ono for $5000,
were also taken, but payment on these
has been stopped and tho robber will
hardly take tho chanco of making an at
tompt to cash them. ,
Another arrent was mado today at Lud
low, a small station llfty miles to tho
eastward of Daggett, on tho Santa Fo.
Tho suspect Is a whlto man, and It is be
lieved by tho authorities that they may
havo tho right man. Ho wan at Daggett
for some tlmo prior to the robbery and
was seen thcro up to tho tlmo It oc
curred. On His Way to the Idlnes.
About that time ho disappeared, how
ever, and was not heard from again until
he was arrested today at Ludlow. He de
nies any connection whatever with tho
crime and claims that he was on ills way
to some mines in tho interior. It is sold
that ho was formerly a railroad man and
familiar with the construction of express
earn, and would havo known how to ef
fect an entrance into tho car from tho
end door, ns was done.
Tho name of tho negro under arrest in
this city is Garfield Williams. Williams
clalmH that ho was on his way west with
a carload of horses and had been rofusod
tho right to rldo further with tho horses
nnd was making his way tho best ho
could when takon Into custody. Ho will
bo taken before Messenger Roberto as
soon as tho latter is ablo to seo any one.
Th suspect at JLudlow la also bolng
brought to this city for identification.
No Trace of Missing1 Gold.
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 6. Nothing hao
boon discovered furthor regarding tho
mieslng fliv.000 which disappeared from tho
local offico of tho Wells-Fargo company
recently In a mysterious manner. It is
now admitted that, In 3pIto of tho rules
lo the contrary, twenty omploycos ontered
tho place whero the money was last seen.
All tho clerks who handled monoy or valu
ables aro bonded with a surely company,
and it is considered possible that a olaim
may bo mado If tho monoy is not recov
ered upon tho bonding companies for tho
amount of tho loss.

and all tho predictions proved at fault
when at a lato hpur It was announced
that no conforenco between Federal of
ficers and Andrew Carncglo had been held

Tills turn was surprising, for Mr. Car
ncglo had announced In tho course of tho

troller of the Currency, would meet him

ference was held was the departure of
Mrs. Chadwick from tho Holland houso,
where she has resided, for tho Now Am
sterdam hotel. She was accompanied by
her son and a maid and took with her
somo baggage. Secret service men who
have been at the Holland house for sov
cral days followed Mrs- Chadwick.
Andrew Squire, a Cleveland attorney,
representing Irl Reynolds, mado the an
nouncement tonight, after several confer
ences with Receiver Lyon, Mr. Oldham
and others, that ho believed thcro would
be no further developments in the caso
before tomorrow, and also said that Mr.
Oldham had returned to Washington.
This announcement was tho first Indica
tion that thoro would not bo a meeting
at Mr. Carnegie's home tonight.
At the Now Amsterdam hotel Mrs.
Chadwick was helped lntd tho -womon's

somo five minutes tho woman was ablo
to walk again and, clinging to her son,
she went to the elevator and was shown

crablo interest is manifest hero In that
pbaso.of tho political situation in Utah IH
which results in distribution of political IH
pio. When tho American party was or
tranlzed It was at onco declared by the
Smootlcs that tho ecalps of officials
whoso appointments wero duo to tho ef
forts of Senator Kearns and who dlf
fcrcd from tho Smoot machine would
danglo at tho belt of tho junior Sena-
Two of theso in particular woro to bo
tomahawked at onco. Thoy woro Ben jH
He j' wood. United Siatos Marshal, and
Joseph Llppmon, Unltod States Attorney,
Both were unusually actlvo in the coun
cllu of tho Amorlcan party and both were
to glvo placo at once to William Spry
and H. E. Booth.
"Were Threatened by Smootites.
It is reported hore that Messrs.
Heywood and Llppmann were both
threatened on tho streets of Salt
Lake that unless thoy ceased their ac- jH
tivlty tholr official heads would fall. Tho
threats counted for naught. Tho tight
was mado regardless of throats. After
tho clactlon It was openly stated by tho
Smootlers tliat Spry and Booth were
slated by the Junior Senator for Marshal H
and Attorney respectively. Coupled with
this was the fact that both put on their
rubber shoos and followed the junior
Senator from pillar to post, making life
a burdon to him in tholr anxiety to get
him to makq the appointments at once
It mattered not to the Smootlers that
Ben Hoywood, whoso head thoy partlcu- IH
larly desired, had mado an enviable rec
ord. In fact. It 1b learned at the depart
mont here that no Unltod States Marshal
in tho country has a bolter one. But Hey
wood had doflcd Smoot. Tho apostolic
machine howovor, forgot one thing It
docs not make appointments.
President Is Satisfied.
Another does tills, tho President. What
ho says, to uso slang, goes, and It is a
well-known fact that he does not mako
changes In public offices whore tho in
cumbents havo acted as honestly and n.s
efficiently as havo the two Utah officials.
Llppman will not be removed.
Not only this, but when their commis
slons oxplro, tho strong probability is
that if their futuro official records shall
prove as creditable a tholr past.

places they havo acceptably tilled. This
statomont may bo llko plunging a knlfo IH
Into tho vitals of Smoot-Calllstor-Cut-

hour, and It is presumed that ho had a
talk about appolntmonts in Utah IH
Whothor ho rocelvcd any assurances that
