Chemical Bank Failure.

By the Associated Press.]
Chicago, May 9.—Since the day the
president opened the fair there haß
been no day when the attendance was
larger and the weather more propitious
than today. Ths actual figures could
not be learned this evening, but they
undoubtedly iar surpass any previous
day. From early this morning until
late thia afternoon thousands crowded
through the gates.
Up to noon an estimate of the visitors
already in the grounds indicated that
yesterday's attendance, 20,773, had al
ready been exceeded. In comparing
the attendance here yesterday with the
corresponding dsy of the Philadelphia
centennial, it is shown that 8873 more
persons paid for admission here than at
The programme for the day included
exercises by the Oatholic Knights of
America, this being their day at tbe
fair. Outside of this the programme was
void of any especially interesting feat
urss, consisting principally of meetings
of world's fair officials and the national
commission. The discords in the music
camp cstne np for consideration again
today, before the investigating commit
tee of the national commission.
EXHIBITORS BADLY SCARED.
Among the exhibitors, the failure of
the Chemical bank was the principal
topic of discussion. Most of the for
eigners had deposited money with the
bank and their letters of credit were
honored at tbat institution. As Boon as
it became generally known that the
bank had closed, a crowd gathered
around the doors and waited patiently
for the appearance of Cashier Brayton.
That gentleman did not put in an ap
pearance, having been summoned down
town to consult with the officials of the
bank. Strenuous efforts were made by
depositors to get in, but tbe clerks kept

the appointment of a committee of six

The first business which came before
the national commission this afternoon
was the petition of Phoebe Conzins of
Missouri, setting forth her claims with
regard to membership. The judiciary
commission reported that under the act
creating the commission Miss Couzins
cannot be regarded as in any sense a
membsr. This settles her statue unless
ahe takes other action.

Reports of the committea on the work

The fisheries building work was re
ported far advanced.
The report of the committee on live
stock was not encouraging. The grounds
and buildings of this department were
not ready, though the chief of the de
partment thinks there is ample time
and tbat be will have all in readiness
by the time they are needed. Accord
ing to the mport not a single exhibitor
is yet in attendance, nor are there any
exhibits. The date of entry for horses
and cattle is therefore changed from
June 15th to July 15th, and for sheep
from July Ist to August Ist.
The mines and mmingexhibit is prob
ably the most advanced on the grounds.

The committee on forestry reports a
most deplorable state of affairs in that
department. Chairman St. Clair stated
that no one competent to bave charge
of that interesting exhibit had been ap
pointed ; the building and grounds were
in an out of the way place; a roadway
has not even been made to them. No
provision wae made for visitors in the
building, and there was otherwise a de
plorable lack of proper management in
the forestry division. St. Clair laid the
matter before the commission in such a
vigorous manner tbat a motion was im

delay of exhibitors who have been de

the great dvnamoa in the power houses.
The committee found the electric build

adapted and all the space assigned.
A visit to machinery hall thia morn
ing showed that a vast amount of work
was accomplished during the night, It
is true not more than half the exhibit*
in the mammoth structure have been
installed, but if the present activity is
maintained it will not take more tban
two weeks at the outside to complete
the work in every detail. In the other
buildings work ia progressing as rapidly
as it is possible for human agency to
push it. A strange commentary is that
many foreign exhibits have been in
stalled a considerable time in advance
of those oi our own country.
HOT A BAD FAILURE.
The Chemical National Bank Will Pay
Dollar for Dollar.
Chicago, May 9.—-As wen as the news
of trouble in the affaiw of the Chemical
National bank became knowu at the
world's fair grounds, this morning, anx
ioua crowds gathered around tbe branch
of the bank, which is the official bank
of the world's fair, and located in the
administration building. The bank
doora, however, were tightly closed, and
nobody conld learn anything as to the
prospects of getting money, though
simultaneously with the notice of the
difficulty in which the bank was placed,
it waß said the depositors in the
branch had been fully served.
It was a quiet crowd, most of
the depositors being Americans, but
aome foreign depositors animadverted

the bank which they took for a guarantee.
The cashier of the branch had gene to

branch could get any information. _ It
appears that some foreigners deposited

$1,000,000. It hae deposits something
over $900,000. The bink is not a mem

had no effect in financial circles. Poor
judgment in making loans and tbe
monetary stringency are the cause of the
Bank Examiner Stnrges said it is not
c bad failure, but from what he knows
bo far thinks it is a complete one, to the
point that resumption of business is not
at all likely. He gave assurance that
tbe depositors would not lose anything.
President Curry said the depositors
would receive 100 cents on the dollar,
and within four or five days could he
paid at least one-third of their claims.
Heavy runs of Saturday and Monday
were the cause of suspension; had they
had two daya more they would have
tided over the difficulty. The general
opinion among financial men is that the
trouble came through bad management
and poor investments.
The world's fair directors have made
ample provision for the payment of all
the foreign commissioners and foreign
exhibitors who had deposted funds in
the world's fair branch of the bank.

A Sensational Embezzlement Trial at
Paso Robi.es, May 9—A short time
ago Frank Misenheimer, marshal of this
city, was arrested, charged with the
embezzlement of city money collected
aa taxes. The preliminary trial came
up today when a decided sensation was
sprung upon the people by the prosecu
tion exhibiting tax books which were
supposed to be lost. Misenheimer had
claimed all aXoug that the books had been
stolen. The books were first found to be
missing about a year ago. The city
trustees employed experts to examine
the city books, but without the books
for IS9I, which were the ones lost,
nothing of a damaging nature to Misen
heimer was found. The trustees also
employed City Attorney Rhodes to find
the missing tax boots. Rhodes claims
that he finally found tbe books, with
the aid of a man who had beeu a
friend of Misenheimer, but had
quarreled with him. Rhodes loaded
his shotgun and accompanied ths man
to where the boots were buried and dug
them up. They are yellow from being
nnder ground so long, but the prosecu
tion have a strong case since their dis
covery. It has Dot been brought out
how much money is missing. Two hun
dred witnesses will be subpoenaed and
the examination is expected to consume

His Own Life.
San Francisco, May 9.— W. I. Mor

himself through the heart in the lava
tory at his office on California street this
afternoon, Death was instantaneous.
The cause leading to the suicide is yet
unknown. Morgan was president of the
Belvedere Land company, the owner of
tbe townsite of Belvedere, an ultra
fashionable resort across the bay in
Marin county. The statement is freely
made that bis accounts with the com

and leaves a wife and child. He had
resided here nine years, coming from
No light haa yet been thrown on the

By the Associated Press.]
Washington, May 9.—Officials of the
state department tonight confirm the
predictions heretofore m.We that ex-
Representative Blount would be ap
pointed minister resident to Hawaii. It
has been supposed tbat Minister Stevens
would remain in charge of the legation
until the 24th of this month, at which
time he had announced hia intention of
Bailing for San Francisco. It ia known
that Stevens has been instructed forth
with to turn over the legation to Com
missioner Blount, who has been ap
pointed his successor. There is reason
to believe that Stevens was not allowed
to remain in charge of the legation until
tbe 21th inst. because of his activity in
behalf of annexation.
It ia further etated at the Btate de
partment that Bowen and Sev/ell, who
went to Honolulu shortly aster Commis
sioner Blount's arrival, are active in
efforts to stimulate sentiment on the
islands in favor of annexation and there
is reason to suspect they sought to cre
ate the impression that in so doing they
were representing the president. Secre
tary Gresham has informed Blount to
repudiate everything said and done bo
these gentlemen. It will be remembered
that Sewell was an applicant for the po
sition of third assistant secretary of
state under tbe present administration,
i but failed to secure the appointment.

but will grant no new leaves of this
kind, and will call in all those already
granted at the expiration of the terms
assigned them. The secretary says he
does not think it right that an officer ed

on the application for a new trial.
Albany, N. V., May 9.—The remains
of Carlyle W. Harris were buried here
this afternoon. After the burial Harriß'
last statement, sent by the warden to
the prison department of the state, was
given out. Harris, in this his last
writing, opened with a reference to the
review of his caee by the governor. He
canvasseß the review, refers to his giv
ing himself up when ho learned of the
warrant for his arrest, recurs to the re
fusal of proffered means of escape from
Sing Sing, and then says regarding the
refusal of executive clemency :
"The action of the court was not jus
tified by the fact* in the o<ee, and hence
public outcry must be silenced by the
seeming justification of the court out
side of the facta. There is an idea in
the minds of many that at the time of
my wife's death I desired marriage with
some other woman. Such person was
never found, nor does ahe exist. No
one had so many reasons, all sentiment
or love aside, for desiring my
wife to live aa I had. She
would have brought me money and
profeseional success. Bbc would have
graced my home, and, had I known her
sad habit, it would have been my hap
piness to shield and cure her. May
<iod in His mercy blesß and guard those
whom I leave behind, and leave them
peace; and now, face to face with the
greatest mystery known to man, know
ing no concealment or untruth can
mitigate my end, I do solemnly declare
I am innocent of the orime for which I
am condemned to die.

by pelagic hunters were chiefly females.
When Mr. Coudert had finished his

you for the great ability, liveliness and
humor with which you carried us over
what would otherwise have been rather
a dreary field of questions and facts."
The Puyalfup Trouble.
Washington, May 9. —Some time ago
the secretary of the interior requested
th« war department to send troops to
the Puyallup Indian reservation to pre
vent a man named Rose from unlaw
fully constructing a railroad across the
reservation. The department sent an
officer to the reservation to look into the
matter, and today received a telegram
stating that Ross was preparing to do
some grading and had cut some timber.
On receipt of this information instruc
tions were sent to General Ruger, com
manding the department of the Colum
bia, directing him to take the necessary
steps to prevent Rose from further push

By the Associated Press.l
Berlin, May !).—After the review of
the troopa on Tempelhoffer field today,
Emperor William commanded the high
est officers of the guards to gather round
him, and addressed them, saying:
"Trusting to the patriotism of the
reichstag, I hoped for an unconditional
acceptance of the army bill. The result
has caused me deep disappointment and
sorrow. During the last few days pas
sionate words, which might better re
main unsaid among gentlemen, have
been spoken. I was obliged to dissolve
the reichstag in the hope that a new
reichstag would pass tbe bill. I am de
termined, in case these hopes will also
be disappointed, to stake all in my
power to secure the enactment os be
bill, for I am too thoroughly oonvincad
of its necessity as a guarantee of tbe
peace to Europe to allow it to be final ly
defeated. lam determined to carry the
bill into effect despite unpatriotic opoo
tion. I know myself; lam at one with
the federated princes and people."
The speech is causing enormous ex
citement among the people. It appears
in the North German Universal Gazette
in double-leaded prominence. Those
who heard the emperor say he spoke
with unusual emphasis, pausing at
every word in order to convey the sense
of his determination to abide by his
declarations. There is a profound,
widespread impression that tbe emperor
would not hesitate to risk a conflict
with the new reichstag should it prove
hostile to tbe bill.
The emperor concluded by sayiDg:
"We are hearing much about the excite
ment of the masseß just now. I •!" ■ bii
think the German people will ullow
themselves to be excited by irresponsi
ble meddlers. On the contrary I know
I am in sympathy with the princes of

army. I thank you. gentlemer. ft*

express to you my views conrernint the
bill as I did when the bill was intro
The officers maintained ahsolnn- :ii
lence, evidently in deep fym
pothy with tbe kaiser's views.
Leading men in German politics who
have heard of the emperor's spsech
now consider that he has embarked on
a policy of Prussian high toryiem, and
that the chances of the Freisinnige
party to bring about a moderate liberal
era have vanished.
The tendency of the public is toward
the conviction that the emperor is point-,
ing straight for the goal of Prueßirn
rectionaries, and tbat he will not Br v s m
conflict with constitutionalism.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press was assured officially this evening,
however, thßt the emperor did not wish
his speech to be a menace to the reichs
tag or a challenge to a conflict.
"On the contrary," eaid the inform
ant, "his majesty desires moat scrupu
lous adherence to constitutional forms.
He feels strongly, however, the urgent
need of reforming the reichstag. He
cannot govern with the reichstag split
into 10 political parties. Few things
wonld please the emperor better than
tbe consolidation of the parliamentary
factions into two or three large parties,
with whom he would be able to reckc n
in determining bis policy. Then t c
would be happy to govern in harmony
with a parliamentary majority."

London, May 9. —The houee of com

there shall be in Ireland a legislature
subordinate to parliament," etc. Glad
stone said Bartley's motion overstep***!

Bsrtley appealed to the chairman. The
chairman decided that the words were
admissible. Gladstone thereupon de
nounced the amsndment as implying
distrust of the Irish legislature ou the
part of parliament. After considerable
debate the amendment waß rejected by
a vote of 292 to 257.
