JiORE LIGHT THROWN
ON CUBAN SCANDAL
GAR BLOWN UP;
GAR GRASHED INTO
THE REPUBLIC: MONDAY, . JULY 1G, 1900.
Oie Hundred Thousand Dollars of Rathbone's Accounts
Disallowed or Suspended for Explanation Thirty
One Dollars for Boots.
Tha Rcrubllc nurcau.
' mh St. and rennjlvanla Ave.
Ya6hlnston. July 13.-The report of
Fourth Assistant l'ostmastor General Bris
low. who recently investigated the condu:t
of tho Cuban postal system under K. G.
Itathbone. will expose most remarkable e s
jxmdltures made by Kathbono for "official"
purposes of tho Director General of Cuban
Posts. This report has been delayed for
the purpose. It Is said, of lett'.ng popular
condemnation of the administration's
ugents In Cuba die out as far as possible.
TYom olJlcial records In Cuba an abstract
of General Bristow's findings is gathered,
end It will b-t incorporated in hi report
whenever made public. Tlilt may not bo
done, however, until after the elections.
On investigation It was found nccessary
to disallow or suspend for explanation more
than $100.00) cf Rathbone's accounts, for
want of proper vouchers and because of the
extravagant expenditures for personal arti
cles for his household, charged to the reve
nues of the Island. Oriental rugs costing
hundreds of dollars, carriage nnd trap
pings running Into thousands; boots for
coachmen. $31; a hat at $13. and an endless
assortment of similar purchases, no to swell
this grand total.
Hathbone Is an Ohio Republican, a Mc-
Klnley partisan, and wns one of the
strongest workers for the election of Mark
Hanna to the Senate. The Imperialists arc
distressed at the disclosures of Cuban mal
administration. They appreciate that Rath
bone's exposure is a timely reminder of tho
dangers of colonial military government
-nnd the manner In which official trust is
betrayed by agents sent out to manage af
fairs for distant peoples.
The exposure of Cuban postal ecandals
baa caused a general inquiry as to what is
going on In tho Philippines. It Is argued
that if such corruption can exist in the
administration agencies within easy reach
of 'Washington, there Is no limit to the
looseness of expenditures made possible In
Islands 10.000 miles distant, where the single
cable connecting them with tills country is
controlled by the men who would be In
terested In coifce3lIng irregularities. If they
Vhen Secretary Root returned from his
Visit to Cuba he stated that, in bis Judg
ment, the people of the Islands are over
whelmingly opposed to annexation. They
want Independence. It Is not surprising. In
view of the experience they have had with
Republican officials during the past year.
Of the $100,000 and more suspended in Rath
bone's accounts, a large part has been dis
allowed finally. The hope Is held out by
. Bristow that vouchers for portions cf the
balance "may be furnished." Tho Investi
gation, however, apparently has not brought
them to light.
General Bristow's report, when made
s public, will embrace the following state
ments: The disallowances thus far made In the
accounts of E. G. Ratbbone, late Director
General of Posts, aggregate $11,192.37. Of
this amount about S?.000 consists of double
payments of salaries, etc.
The amount suspended In his account cg
gregatcs $79,937.19? Of this amount one item
of $12,000 disbursed by warrant to C. P. V.
Neely to correct error In deposit will
necessarily bo disallowed, as It is not shown
t that there was any error in deposit, and It
would not have been a proper way of cor
recting such an error if one had existed.
31any other disallowances, aggregating sev
eral thousand dollars in amount, will ensue,
but it Is hoped that much of the suspended
cinount may be properly vouchered.
The articles purchased by E. G. Rath
bone, late Director General of Posts, for
use In tho official residence at Cerro as
far as ascertained, arc as follows:
,13111 of Lord & Taylor, for miscellaneous

a local preacher of thu Congregational
Methodist Episcopal Church uf CamJen,
who Is charged with a too free exercise of
the marriage habit,
Burrows's arrest was caused by his fourth
wife, who until June 1 went under the name
of Margaret Christy. She met Burrows
while he was canning on a revival in Glou
cester, Camden County, and was married w
him by a Gloucester minister. Their mar
ried life came to an end a few days ago,
when the bride, who was sluing on her
front porch, was accosted by a woman who
asked her if she was Mrs. Burrows. She
said she was. but the stranger remarked:
"Oh, no; you're not. You only think you
are. I have more right to that title than
)ou, and could break up this home If I
The stranger said her name was Kate
Glanden, and that she wns married to Bur
rows In 1S9S by the lleverend Charles Hal
ter of Camden. She added that a few days
after the marriage she discovered that
Burrows had already been married twice
and that one of his wives was still living,
The woman said she promptly left Bur
rows, but did not trouble him, and would
not have done so had she not heard of
his fourth marriage.
The fourth Mrs. Burrows fainted, but
was revived by No. 3. As soon as she re
covered, she informed the Chief of Police,
who called upon the Reverend Mr. Halter
and others, who corroborated the story told
by Miss Glanden.
Burrow admitted to Chief of Police Fos

that three of the women he had taken as
partners were allvp. Including the first one.

to marry again. The second woman he mar
tied was dead and the third, having left
him, he Again felt himself free to marry.

tice Stackhouse. who kid him in $1,000 bill
on the charge of bigamy, and, in default,
committed him to prison.
Engineer's Sharp Eyes Prevented
Serious Wreck in Kansas.
Manhattan. Kas., July 13. What appears
to have been an attempt to wreck and rob
tho Union Pacific west-bound flyer was dis
covered at a siding four miles west of here
at 10:30 o'clock to-night
When the train reached tho siding the
engineer saw that the switch had been
thrown and immediately set brakes, brlng
inc the train to a stop within ten yards of
the end of the siding. Had he noticed the
thrown switch two seconds later the train
would have been ditched.
A search of the vicinity revealed a shot
gun, several sticks of dynamite and a bot
tle supposed to contain nitroglycerin on a
pile of ties.
The trainmen believe that robbers tried
to wreck the train, planning to get away
with the express safe In the confusion and
blow It up at their leisure. The failure to
ditch the train, it is thought, disconcerted
them and they lied.

enthusiasm. I'eter Bilhora was alo pres
ent. He has charge of the vocal music dur
ing the convention.
Thus far all the meetings have been large

night. Indeed, soon after 3 o'clock this
morning the secretary himself and many
others resumed singing.

Several hundred refugees, most of them
women nnd children, left Ticn-Tsln in ac
cord with Admiral Seymour's orders to all
noncombatanta to depart. Mnny women
have remained behind, however, refusing
to leave their husbands, whose buslnoss
detains them. The refugees were sent down
the river on board lighters and tugs, tnd
were then transferred to merchant ships
in the harbor.
The American, Japanese and German
warships received their people, the officers
of the United States gunboat Yorktown
generously entertaining 200. most of them
missionaries and their families.
The British refugees were crowded on a
dirty freighter, and women accustomed to
luxun' have been sleeping huddled to
gether on the decks. They complain bit
terly because tho half-empty BrlUsh fleet
declines to receive them, and they havo
drafted a strong protest to Admiral Sey

arrived with tho Ninth Infantn' from

and was almost completely wrecked at 10:15
last night. Tho motonnan and conductor
were hurled from their positions on the

of No. 4213 North Broadway, was severely
shaken up and Is suffering from several lac

sengers on the car refu?.ed to give their
names and departed from tho scene of the

The terrific report made by the explosion
nrouscd all ot the residents of the itcigii
borhoexl, and within ten minutes nftir It
occurred moro than l.f'O people wero in the
street. Riot rails were turned In to thu
Fifth and Sixth District poll;e stations and
two wagon loads of police were hurried to

Dispensary, where Doctor TVako attended
them and forwarded them to their respect
Lieutenant Schwartz of the Sixth District
wasi near the sceno when the expli-dun oc
curred. A number ot police e.IIlcers had
gathered there when ho arrive-d and ho -is-tributed
them along llrtinen avenue to quiet
the crowd, which was hootlnrr and yelling
and threatening violence.
Miss Shez was too excited to mako my
explanation of the explosion. Sho w.ii
moaning plteously when extricated from tho
rear trucks of the car and placeel In tho
Mr. English was less disconcerted, and
explained that the explosion was so sudden
and so terrific that it was several minutes
before he could realize what had happened.
He said that the car was going at a high
rate ef speed immediately after It rounded
the curve at Twentieth nnd Bremen avenue,
but slowed up for tho Twcnty-spcond street
crossing and was running at a speed of
probably live miles an hour when the right
front wheel exploded the dynamite
Instantly there was a crash of falling
glass. The floor of the car rose up and the
front trucks, which were wrenched nnd
twisted. Jumped to the right of the track.
The wheels plowed through the mud nnd
and macadam and forced the car to a stand
still nfter its momentum had carried it for
a distance of about ten feet. Where the ex
ploMon occurred a hole as large as a bushel
basket was made In the ground, and splin
ters, rocks and other debris were scattered
about the tracks.
The residences in the nelghbarhood shook
from the force of the explosion, but no win
dow panes In the houses were broken. With
in a short time nflerwards a dozen or moro
cars wero blockaded, and residents ot the
vicinity Bwarftied the streets. Police pa
trolled the streets until tho transit com
pany's trouble wagon arrived and the car
was temporarily patched ur. so that It could
be pushed to the sheds.
The bottom of tho car was completely
Mown out and tho trap doors rested on
Miss Shez nnd Mr. English were slttlns
In the mlddlP of the car. and were thrown
from their seats to the supporting rods be
neath the flooring. Had It not been for the
fact that the rod caught their bodies and
hold them they would have been crushed
beneath the wheels of the rear trucks.
.Mr. English recovered himself sulllciently
to assist Mits Sl.ez to a more comfortable
position, where she remained until the floor
ing was lifted from her body and she was
carried to Ihe street. The lower portion of
her Hmla were fearfully lacerated, and her
moans moved the women who had gatnere-a
there to tears. English bore hU vain with
considerable fortitude, and made every ef
fort posslblo to comfort Miss Shez. Both of
them were bespattered with blood and dirt.
Motorman George George S. Wcntz. who
was thrown violently agalmt the cto on
the right side of his platform, sustained a
bruised shoulder and slightly contused hip.
Conductor Hemy Moore was shocked, but
not Injured. Transit company officials s-ny
the car was damaged to the extent of $350.
No arrests wero made In connection with
Miss 6hcz and Mr. Ensllsh had passed tho
day at Montesano Park on an excursion.
The boat arrived late and both werv- nlixlous
to get home. They attempted to Ket a union
bus at Broadway and Washington aenue-,
but they could set none going In the direc
tion of their homes.
It was too far to walk, and necessity com
pelled them to take a transit company car.
Doctor IVake said he did not think .their
injuries would result fatally, unless blood
poisoning was caused by the splinters nnd
dirt which ground into their wounds. Roth
of them were resting easy lute last night.

Car No. 3.".1 or the Suburban Company'3
Webster division ran Into and capsized a
wagon loaded with picnickers returnlnt;
from Fore Tark last n!ht at D o'clock at
Lindell boulevard and Sarah street and
twelve of them were hurt, two seriously.
The wagon, a covered delivery vehicle lined
with benches, wa- broken Into splinters and
the horse was crippled.
When the accident happened rain was fall
ing heavily. Heuben Kaplan, who held the
reins, urged Ills horse eastward as rapidly
as he could, but tho load was too heavy to
Induce him to proceed faster than a quick
step. The car was going at a rapid rate and
all the Kaplans and Kummenses insist that
they heard no gong sounding.
The car struck the rear wheel, pushed tho
wagon sideways and then spilled the occu
pants. The Rosenblum, baby was picked up
on the front platform of the car, but wheth
er it was thrown there or carried there by
a bystander no one seems to know. Reuben
Kaplan, it Is thought, must have been
rolled by the fender, as ho is Internally
hurt. Mrs. Kaplan fell on tho steel rail
head first. The others were piled up in ut
ter confusion. Tho car proceeded twenty
feet before it came to a stop.
The pasaengers, of whom there were many,
screamed when tho Jolt came, and rushed
out pell-mell on the platforms. The injured
women nnd children were taken to the home
! of Mr. and Mrs. A. Moss, No. 1121 Lindell
boulevard, where temporary attention W3a
given them, and when tho ambulance ar
rived the victims were taken to the Kaplan
home, where Doctor FrumsOn opened a
small hospital for the time.
"In our excitement some of us forgot
that it was a Suburban car that hit us and
we yelled 'scab" at the motorman after
tho accident, said J. Kaplan. 'There was
no policeman near, but the neighbors
brought us bandages and water and we
washed the mud off our clothes. Reuben
Kanlan lost a gold watcn wnen ne leu.
"What surprised us most was to seo
Rosenblum s uauy crying on tne iront plat
form. .We think it fell there when we col
lided. I had Just given the rig to Sir.
Kummens to-day and it was his lirst trip,
it was a sad picnic for us."

They say that the crowds who come to
