jM- NI2W YORK, July 25. A general alarm
nK was sent out by the police today for
?t r a trace of ISrwin "Wider, missing cashier
imM i of tno Russo-Chinesc bank, although
rim , oddly enough" the district attorney's office
t)K - said tonight no aid had been asked of
,W It from the bank and that no application
I IB for a warrant had been filed.
( But this contradiction is only one of
, v a. scries said to have kept step with
H 1- every development of what Is now nd-
ilM milled to be at once the most puzzling
Am ai1 most serious defalcation In the
IJM 'j history of Wall street since Cornelius
"IK ' Alvard stole $606,000 from the First Na-
W '' tional bank, served a term in Sing Sing
ilB f aml llien retired to the seclusion of a
,B r princely country palace.
mk s When the Russo-Chinesc bank fii-st
" made public that its strong box was
'H ' short, the amount was given as 5SO.000.
tB all in negotiable bonds, a list of which
;IB j. was furnished. This afternoon the
' amount suddenly jumped to $600,000. of
Ma i 5 which the additional $520,000- is said to
Imt be in stocks partly owned by the bank
IK - an(1 Partly by its customers.
Ml V No positive statement has been made
i MB ii. yet as to where these stock certificates
IB' j now are, or with what Intent they were
jmm ' stolen. Inspector K. E. Markowskl, now
Ami ff in charge of tho New York branch of
SjBf ' the bank in the absence on vacation of
tMB ! Manager Gertz, says he Is convinced
HE ? Wider had an outside accomplice.
tmlt S "When Wider entered our employ." cx-
WJ ? plained Mr. Markowskl tonight, "he was
(a :; a modest, exemplary clerk. Within the
Hf last year I feel sure that some man
H of strong personality has gained control
Sj . of him and changed his whole person-
j ality. I am satisfied that Wider did
mm $ not steal of his own volition or on his
MM !jL own initiative."
H . Bank May Know Secrets.
mWf, 7t is perhaps with a hope of laying
hands upon the power who shaped the
jBjfi cash to his own ends that the bank
BlK- "us t-'nlt s0 delicately with Wider. His
WAQB' i-ounsel and neighbor, L. R. Ginsberg.
Kv- has said from the first that the bank
was In touch with Wider and even to-
mr7jT'v night after the general alarm had been
Ht; sent out, Mr. Ginsberg reiterated:
"They know where he is, just as well
HJk. Ginsberg was quick to supplement this
B1k statement with two qualifications. First,
Hetc nc wlsnes it understood that In his at-
HEk tempts to arrive at an understanding
SjhK, with the bank he is not trying to com-
BfKr? pound a felony, and secondly, he charges
tSr bad faith by the bank.
VKR "It was intended to have my client
HfBr come forward at the proper time." said
'JHjw.' the attorney, "to take lils modiclne; but
iStK Y Wider objected to being locked up In
MX ' the Tombs this hot weather, when he
HJB might be unable to get ball. That was
VX '' his only reason for keeping out of the
H "Gentleman's Agreement."
1 On the second count Ginsberg spoke
f i with emphasis. "There was a gcntle-
Hy men's agreement that the loss of tho
Hs, K securities was not to be made public
Hk f at this time." he declared. "The plan
Hf - was to restore them without loss to the
HE 1' bank in the fall, but Instead of carry-
f i-:r ing out the agreement the police have
HA been put on the case and I have been
HJ i dogged by detectives.
Hf & "I want to say it was not Inspector
H .' Markowski who discovered tho loss. He

Ha Ca Tt was known yesterday that tho
HJ i stolen bonds had been hypothecated with

HJ y t "Wa shall Institute suits to recover

'-TM f spector Markowski. "They must have

be adopted, and hence upon tho candi

The fight of the "progressives" thus

Garfield would indicate today how far
the suggestions made by Mr. Ellis for
an extension of referendum and other

would satisfy the "progressives."
Senators Burton and Dick havo not
boon actively in league with the cam-
Eaign for the nomination of Judge O.

by Gcorgo B. Cox, and it was stated
that an acceptance by the "progres

Mr. Garfield on a modification of the
platform suggested by Mr. Ellis would
do much to bring about an agreement
of the leaders asido from Mr. Cox.

Gninvillo W. Moonoy, speaker of the
lower house in the legislature, last
night told Senator Burton that ho did
not desire to bo considered as a com

mented: "No man, asido from the president,

Hamilton county delegation, announced
this morning that Congressman Nicho

GAMBLERS DEFY CHIEF OF POLICE BARLOWS
Well, the defy of the police department has been made.
Turf exchange. GAMBLERS HAVE TOLD CHIEF BARLOW THAT THE LAW CANNOT REACH THEM.
Judge Morse has issued a temporary restraining order which in effect is an instruction to the police department to KEEP HANDS OFF
THE TURF EXCHANGES until it can be determined in court whether the statutes can be employed in the suppression of these evils.
The Tribune has stated that the laws of Utah are not sufficiently specific on the question of pool selling to bring that nuisance under the
ban of law. But COUNCIL IN A NIGHT, CAN SUSPEND THE RULES AND PROHIBIT SUCH GAMBLING FOR ALL TIME.
IT REQUIRES BUT TEN VOTES TO DO THIS. Then the case is closed, unless the poolroom gamblers conclude to attack the ordi
nance on its constitutionality.
The ordinance can be so drawn that there will be NO QUESTION AS TO ITS CONSTITUTIONALITY. The city can say whether or
not poolrooms are a public nuisance whether or not they may be prohibited.
IF THE LAW DOES NOT HOLD THESE PLACES TO BE GAMBLING, THEY CAN. BE LICENSED. If they may be licensed, the fee
may be made so large as to be prohibitive. But it will require a VERY LARGE LICENSE to keep these dives out of the city.
The Tribune's suggestion to Chief Barlow is to go before council and ask for a prohibitory ordinance. It will be unwise to dilly-dally
with the courts. THE LAW'S DELAY IS THE POOLROOM GAMBLER'S ONLY HOPE. Tonight council can do the business. And,
in face of the defy, it should show the poolroom gamblers THAT THEY CANNOT RUN SALT LAKE CITY.
Almost every business man in Salt Lake City will commend council if the poolroom ordinance is MADE A SPECIAL ORDER
TONIGHT AND PASSED.
