Temporary Iteritraliilng Order Old
Not Prevent Acting SeeretnryAdee
From Transferrins tho Draft.-
The Mora claim was paid shortly after
12 o'clock yesterday by Seuor'Depuy de
Lome, the Spanish minister to Washington,
banding to Acting Secretary Adeo a draft
on the Spanish fiscal agent at London for
$1,119,000 in gold. Mr. Adee guve the
minister a receipt for the draft, as stated In
Tho Evening Times.
Antonio Maximo Mora, a feeble man,
eighty-seven years of age. who has devoted
nearly a quarter of a century to attempting
the- collection of' the claim against the
Spanish government for the destruction of
Ids property in Cuba, Fridayirtghtarnvedln
the city nnd is now the guest of Dr. Jose
L. Uodrlguez, at No. 1310Termontavenue.
Mr. Mora expects to renialu In the city
several days and will probably devoto a
portion ot his tlmo to selecting a suitable
residence here lu which to spend his re
1 Icing n native Cuban lie finds tliedimatc
ot New York too rigorous and lias long
contemplated locating in Washington.
NeiUier Mr. Mora nor any ot bis attor
neys were present yesterday when the Hpan-l-ai
minis tor transferred to Acting Secretary
Adee the amount agseed upotf'a eonsti
tutlng final settlement.
Criinuuond Kennedy, chief cuuinel for
Mr. Mora, said to the Times reporter that
he did not apprehend any delay lu appor
tioning the funds among the beneficiaries
of the claim.
He believes the temporary restraining
order secured front Justice Cox by Mrs.
Frazer will under no tircumtances serve
as a. bar to the distribution of the money.
He sajs it is an injunction issued against
Itich.ird Olney as an individual and can
not affect his actions hi an official ca
On the contrary, Mrs. Frrzer intimates
tbat she has assurances which convince
her that Mr. OIney will transfer no por
tion of the money until all legal ques
tions involving any part of It have been
scttli'd In the courts.
Mr. Kennedy, however, holds that no
other .assignments can be affected except
those made by !)r Ilevter. ngninst whom
suit is brought by Mrs. Frazer.
Secretary Olney is not expected to re
turn until a week Irom this time, and in
the meantime Mr. Adee, as Acting Secre
tary of State, will have replied tm next
Wednesday as to the temporary Injunc
tion, and this question will be cleared
away, so that Mr Oiney can act without
fear of becoming entangled in legal com
plications. There was no ceremony abmt tle paying
of the Mora claim. Scnurde Loraeappeared

He handed to Mr. Adee a draft, sirned
by himself, on Ihe London financial agent
of the Spanish1 government, for 295.412
lGs.lld.. the equivalent of $1,449.000 or
1,500,000 Spanish- pesos, and Mr. Adeo
delivered In return a formal receipt for
the amount sUmpii by himself as Acting
Secretary ot State. ,
What steps tfill be taken to collect the
amount of tlie draft, have not been deter
mined. Mr. Adee has left that to Secretary
Olney. There Is apparently no hurry In
the matter, as It may take some time to
arrange the assignments.
Yesterday a mnrnngabaliff tried toservo
the injunction papers on Mr. Adee, but as
they were directrsl to Kiclianl Olney. Mr.
Adee refused ti accept the service, and, at
his suggestion, the-hailiff returned to the
court to have them made serviceable on "the
Secretary of State" which would fit Mr.
Adec's present position.
MltS. FRAZER'S STATEMENT.
A reporter saw Mrs. Frazer last night
and she said: j,
"I can not consistently permit a state
ment so grosslj-imisrepresentlng the facts
as that made by Dr. James E. Dexter, of
No. 4C3 C street northwest, in the Satur
day morning Times to be accepted by
the public in any sense.
"No better estimate of Dr. Pextcr's
veracity can be given than a simple refer
ence to the wording of his own volun
tary affidavit, made last December, the
original of which is "now on file at the
city hall, a copy signed in duplicate at the
State Department, and other copies witb
my nttorneys. In which he explicitly
states that I accompanied him to the State
Department, investigated the Mora Claim
and accepted the same; adding that be
owes me $1,000 in the said claim, being
double the amount of an $800 obligation,
balance due for purchase of Virginia
properties, and guaranteed by him to be
so paid in tbe Mora Claim accepted from
him at the rate of two for one.
I have now in my possession an auto
graphic statement from Dr. JJextcr, fur
nished to my former attorney, Mr. George
K. French, and which has been seen and
examined by The Times representative,
where the following words occur: "This
balance of $826.10 to be paid by an
assignment In tbe Mora Claim of double
"Since Dr. Dexter has seen fit to refer
to the diamond incident, I will say that
I have given him full credit in my general
statement of account for all moneys ad
vanced inc by blm; therefore the diamond
transaction Is closed and wholly Irrele

in the Mora Claim."

Yluccnncs. Iud., Sept. 14. A sensation
was caused last evening in this section by
the exhumation of the body ot Cornelius
Organ, a well-to-do farmer of Alliroit, I1L,
across the river, whose dentil oceurrcdabout
three weeks ago.
The body wus taken up at the instigation
ot twenty-four resident petitioners, repre
senting that the deceased came to his death
by poisoning. ,
It Is claimed that the deceased displayed
symptoms of pdison during his last brict
illness. The stomach was sent to Indian
apolis for analysis.
His only son. aged seventeen, has been
suspected of the 'crime. The father ob
jected to his 6oii's relations with a woman
to such an extent that It engendered the
hiMred ot the young man.
Divorce Wnnfted for Desertion.
Bertie S. Co"nrad yesterday brought suit
for divorce against Jeremiah H. Conrad.
The two were married at Elllottsburg, Ta,
May 7, 1881, by Rev.Horam Conrad. The
husband deserted her on .April 8, 1890,
tbe wife said, and has remained away ever
since. The three children of the petitioner
are In the husband's custody.
