HECEIVEIt ASKED FOIL
Complaint Filed Against tlio Order of
t lie A ps Is.
Baltimore, Aug. 27. The appointment of
a receiver for tlie Order of Aegis is asked
in a bill filed In the city circuit court by
Frank E. Burke, through W. Frank and
ioseph B Mitchell, jr., attorneys. Charles
JX Robinson, supreme secretary of the or
dor, is also made a defendant to the pro
ceeding. Mr. Burke, the complainant, is a
resident of Washington city.
The bill of complaint alleges that the
Order of Aegis is conducted principally by
Charles D. Hoblnson, and has an office at
No. 200 North Liberty street. It was In
corporated in 1802, and was formed as a
successor to a similar organization formed
In Massachusetts in 1889. ,
Uurkc was a member of the Massachu
setts organization, and states that when
the Mar land organisation was formed
he was Induced to join, the assessment
he had already paid to the Massachusetts
organization being credited to his ac
count in the new order. -
The order Issued certificates for $1,000
to each of Its members, payable In seven
years. The complainant sajs he has paid
since 1892 $153 In assessmmts. When he
joined the order, lie sajs, it was repre
sented to him that there would be no more
than fifteen assessment of $2 50 each an
Dually. It is alleged that lately, as the
time approached for the maturing and
pa log of. certificates, assessments have
been made at the rate of twelve a month.
The complainant further says he believes
the order is about to pay out large 6ums
to certificate holders who are principally
officers. It is charged that the order is in
solvent, and a receiver is asked to wind
op Its affairs and distribute the money on
band among the certificate holders.

Tried to Keep It Secret.
New York, Aug. 27. An evening paper
prints the following:
Wm. K. Vniidcrblll has Just bought from
Pierre Lorillard sixteen thoroughbred
mares In pursuance of his plans or founding
a breeding and racing establishment in
France From Jobslown, N. J , where Mr.
Lorlllard's Rancocas farm is located, comes
the news that the marcs are being prepared
for shipment, nnd that Mr. Vanderullt will
have all of them in France before October 1.
Both Mr. Lorillard and Mr. Vanderbiit
have done their utmost to keep the purchase
of the mares a secret, and the amount of
the check which passed is not known As
the mares are from the richest producing
lands of England and America and cost Mr.
Lorillard more than $75,000, ho must base
obtained at least that amount for them, as
it wo generally known that he was not anx
ious to tell Indeed, when he disposed of
his racing stable two years ago be refused
to put these marcs up at auction, saying
that he yctlmped to breed thegreatest Amer
Several of the marcs told are by Morte
mer, a French stallion by the way, while
the other nine represent a sturdy English
and American stock It is Mr. Vai dcrbilt's
Intention to breed the marcs to French
stallions and race the produce in France.
Mr. Lorillard's reason for celling his
mares is that he contemplates a turf cam
paign in England next seuEon and does
not care to be bothered with his American
breeding establishment -Raich haB grown
cumbersome. The mares were not a great
success as Itancocas. for, although Mr.
Lorillard spent over $1,000,000 on the
place, he was never able to obtain those

Tliclr Headquarters In a Cao In tlio
Perry, Okla., Aug. 27. A party of
United States deputy marshals broke up
a blgfgang of counterfeiters in the Kaw
Indian country Sunday night. The raid
was the result of the information obtained
after several weeks of hard work.
The headquarters of the counterfeiters
was a large cave on the banks of the Ar
kansas River. When the officers descended
on the place there were fifteen of the
gang at work. Of these seven escaped after
a sharp exchange of shots, but eight were
captured, together with a large quantity
of spurious coin and material and all the
appliances for counterfeiting.
The prisoners are Benjamin Henry,
Charles Cross, John Cross, Joseph Robe-rts,
Charles Boyd, Samuel Becy and two
others whose names are unknown to the
deputy marshals. The capture is the
largest known in the West for several
j ears, and will probably check the flood
of counterfeit money that has been poured
Into Kansas, Texas and the Indian Terri.

Comment of tho London News on the

lo-day that it regards the difficulty aris

of the opinion that it will certainly admit
of an amicable settlement.
Continuing, It says: "The French have
constantly shown that they arc willing to
admit an error of temper when it can be
proved against them. There is a certain
irony in the mischance which has now em
broiled them 'with a power so absolutely
indifferent to the Madagascar question as

"They are morbidly sensitive regarding
treasons, plots and stratagems. They must
have gone far out of their way to fix on a

misfortune is that these things are done, not

ing friends in this city. Interviewed in
reference to the dismissal ot Prof. BemU,
Instructor in political economy, for the al
leged reason that bis teachings were not
satisfactory to the founder of tbe uni
versity, Prof. Bmall Bald:
"ProL Bcmis, in the first place, did
not occupy tho chair of political economy.
He was associate professor ot political
economy in the university extension de;
partment. In one quarter of the year he
gae instructions to tho university. Prof.'
Bcmis was not a success in this university
extension work, and was not transferred
to a position TWtbin tbe university. The
reasons for this were in no way connected
with bis economic doctrines, no one of
which has eier been called to question by
any university authority. It is simply
grotesque exaggeration to represent his
caso as in any way raising the question
of freedom of thought of investigation
or of instruction. These, facts have been
repeatedly stated by President Harper and
