Y's uniarthci in the auditor's oftlce to
day. The auditor's registry of bonds was
discovered to contain entries of $200,000
in bonds, purporting to have been issued
by the cillei of Gregory, Cloudy and
Dudlong, in Cherokee county, Kansas, to
the Memphli, Carthage and Northwestern
railroad. There are no such places in
Cherokee county or in Kansas, and the
bonds are evidently bogus In all
particulars. The names of Attri and
Given are the names of prominent citizens
ofCarthagi, .Mlsiojri. There are to sets
of bonds for each city bearing 7 per cent
interest, and payable at the National Park
bank of New York. One hundred of the
bondi,. amounting to 150,000, were regis-
tered December 20, 1872, and the remain
der wero all registered January 0, 1873,
which was three days before the present
statu administration was installed. It is
supposed that an attempt has boen or Is
