BAD GANG OF
Arrest of William Matthews Proves
to. Ho nn Important Catch for Post
Boston, Mass , Oct. 2.'.. Since the ar
rest of William Matthews on a chaige
of robbing mall boxes In Boston, the
Boston and New York police have been
looking up his recoid and his connec
tion with other ctlmlnals, for the pur
pose. If possible, of breaking up the
gang and bringing a case against the
men now under arrest In New York.
They have discovered that Matthews'
an est Is more important than at first
Information was received by Chief
Inspector Watts this morning, which
makes the identification of Matthews
positive, and shows that he was one of
the gang rounded up In Now York In
September, 1S95. Matthews was known
then as William Morgan and had been
arrested In New Yoik in 18SG for bur
glary and sentenced to seven and one
half j tars In the state prison. After
h's release he went to London, where
he was arrested and sentenced to three
j ears and seven months Imprisonment
for forgery, but after serving part of
his sentence he was pardoned. He
was sent back to America.
The gang of which Matthews was a
memler was arrested in New York In
193, through the c.onfesslon of Wil
liam G. Wheeler. Chailes Fisher, Rob
ert Wallace, Barney Kelley, William
Morgan (Matthews) and Frank Grltlln,
who afterwards served time In Sing
Sing, composed the gang.
They planned to secure keys to mall
boxes in different cities and steal let
ters containing checks and money.
Between November, 1893, and June,
1891, St. Louis was plundered of $10,
000 by the gang; New Orleans of $7,000;
Milwaukee of $400; Cincinnati of $1,600;
Pittsburg of $2,500; Philadelphia of $400
and Btooklyn of $500, before operations
were begun In New Yoik. The police
have been unable up to this time to
connect Ogle and Russell, aricsted in
New York, with the gang anested in
New Yoik In 1S95.

American vessels on the high seas K
llllbustetlng expeditions continued to

believed, grew out of v Islts made by
the minister to the state depaitment
last Mondny and Thursdn, At thep

ofl'clals to the clrcumstnnce of the
departure of the alleged llllbustei
Silver Heels, after the authorities were
put in possession of explicit infomia

was expiessed by the minister at this
occtuance, as It was felt that it would
create a bad Impression at Madrid at
a time when the govoi nmrat was ma
tuiing it3 policy. Beyond this, how
ever, tho minister made no lefereneie
to retaliation upon American vessels,
or as to searches on vhe high seas.
It is silel a pre requisite to such action
would be an announcement by Spain
of the blackade of all the polls of

been dofraudod of $2,000,000 worth of stock
of tho General Electric Railway company,
of Chicago, and ho names tho members
of the firm of J. Pierpont Morgan, &. Co.,
as defendants In tho suit to recover 't;
tho other defendants being Lucius Clark,

chased 20,000 shares of the stock of tho
road, whlah ho says was not then In prog

In order to successfully carry out the ob

ated, and to securo tho passage of ordi

In Chicago, It was necessary to have a

company placed temporarily In the hands
of one person.
Bates .say he turned over to Clark his
20,000 shales on Clark's promise to return
them as soon as tho objects he represented
were accomplished, but that he had re
peatedly tried In vain to get Clark to re
turn tho tock
Bates savs he then dlcoveiecl that Clark
transferred it to n man named St!non,
who In turn transferred it either to ,1.
Pierpont Morgan or to J. Pierpont Mor

in their possession.
All the tiansfers, Bates declaics, were
pretended and made without considera
