McGLAUFLIN SEEKING HIS LATE PARTNER
Experts, at Work at the
LUNING ESTATE RUMORS.
The Heirs Said to Have Lost a
Quarter of a Million on
the Fair Deal.
ERESSE'S DRAFTS NOT KNOWN.
He Is Accused of Base Ingratitude
by the Senior Partner of
"Where is Eugene A. Bresse?
That was the question asked by inquiring
members of the Produce Exchange yes
terday. The query remained unanswered.
The Fair wheat deal, the dissolution of
the linn of McGlauflin & Co. and the dis
appearance of Charles Smith, the book
keeper of the latter mentioned company,
are wrapped in a mystery which deepens
and becomes more and more elusive in its
6olution with each day's investigation.
But the most anxious inquirer after
Eugene A. Bresse's whereabouts yesterday
was his late partner and senior member of
the firm. L. W. McGlauflin. The receiver,
T. W. Collins, who was appointed in accord
ance with the petition of Mr. McGlauflin
ior an injunction, and Mr. Kirkpatrick,
an expert accountant, began experting the
books of the firm yesterday, and during
the course of their forenoon's work it be
came apparent that Mr. Bresse's presence
was sorely needed to explain certain cleri
cal combinations, complications and per
plexities which had confronted the inves
tigator? at the outset. Then it was that an
inquiry was made as to the whereabouts of
the ex -junior member of the firm,
Mr. McGlautlin had confidential agents
at work during the daj' trying to unearth
the young man, but up to 5 o'clock last
evening he had not been located.
While no serious significance was at
tached to the temporary disappearance of
young Mr. Bresse, it soon became noised
about on 'Change that he was wanted and
could not be found, and all sorts of chaff
ing speculations were current as the proba
bility of his having gone to join the miss
ing bookkeeper, Smith.
The pioneer brokers and commission
mi n shook their heads and winked across
the flame of the cigar-lighter as they ig
nited their post-luncheon conchas, and in
the gossip which followed many an inter
esting theory was expressed.
The story was told that during the big
deal and soon after McGlautiin was "long"
on wheat, while his junior partner was
Belling "short" — a repetition of the scrip
tural house divided against itself. Then
followed in turn many other equally as in
teresting speculations and queries. The
statement made by Bresse T s brother, Louis
C. Bresse, one of the Fair trustees, that
McGlauflin had his junior partner to thank
for the money made on the Fair wheat,
was taken up and vigorously refuted
by Mr. McGlauflin's friends, " who set
up the counter claim that the Brasses
owe their present business position to
McGlaurlin; that he took first one then
the other into his office and gave them a
business education. Among those who
defended Mr. McGlauflin the most
strongly in this respect was W. Greer
The mutilation of the books and impor
tant documents of the firm are also a pro
lific source of speculation. Mr. McGlautiin,
having asserted that he did not believe
that Smith, the absent bookkeeper, had
anything to do with that reprehensible
act, many were found who showed no
hesitancy in suggesting Bresse as the
guilty party. On the page bearing the
index letter "F" in one of the ledgers was
found a drop of blood, and Mr. Bresse,
having worn a pioce of plaster on one of
his fingers about the same time the books
were cut up, the natural suspicion on the
part of the senior partner was that the
court plaster had some connection with
the mutilated books. The coincidence was
recalled later on, however, but just at
present the .significance deepens.
While those who stood very close to
Senator Fair during the last few years of
his life still adhere to the belief that he
knew nothing whatever about the immense
wheat deal in which McGlauflin and the
two Bresses figured so prominently, others
contend that the Senator certainly was
cognizant of the transaction and 'had a
partner. The latter opinion took the shape
of a story to the effect that the money of
the Luning estate was interested to a large
extent and that George Whittell acted as
buyer and Fair as the principal banker.
The loss was shared equally in proportion
to the respective money invested, and the
Luning heirs were much displeased with
the speculation. Among these heirs, so
the story goes, is Mr. Fyfe, who it was
said had lost $250,000 when the settlement
came to be made.
None of the various theories advanced,
however, seemed to throw any additional
light on the recent causes leading to the
McGlauflin-Bresse disunion in its connec
tion with the Fair wheat deal or the Fair
executors. Though it is an open secret
that one of the trustees of the Fair estate,
Attorney Goodfellow, is not on the most
Intimate terms with his colleagues, no
effort had been made until yesterday to
connect the fact in any way with the Mc-
Glauflin & Co.-Fair deal in wheat. Trustee
Goodfeliow, it y»as said, had opposed the
wheat proposition, and as a result the
other trustees carried on the business sub-
Bequently without calling him into con
After all has been told, and deductions
made from the most authentic informa
tion obtainable, the present status of the
affair may be expressed as follows:
McGlauflin & Co. have dissolved; their
bookkeeper, Smith, is still mysteriously
missing; Bresse, the junior member of the
firm, has been strangely absent since day
before yesterday, and is wanted to explain
;ertain perplexing entries in the firm's
books whereby he is supposed to have
added something to his personal bank
iccount, and the Fair trustees are singu

Fhe Bresses Charged With the Grossest
"It is no more than natural that I
should have some hesitancy in expressing
myself to the papers with having been
grossly misrepresented," said Mr. Me-

Glauflin yesterday afternoon. "The idea
of the statement being made that I wept
during the course of an interview! The
report might just as well have said
that I howled. That kind of thing
makes one wary of the newspapers. I do
not know that 1 can say anything beyond
that Mr. Kirkpatrick and Mr. Collins, the
receiver, are experting the books and that
I would like to find Mr. Bresse. He has
not been seen by any one since 11 o'clock
yesterday morning and I would like very
much to have him here to explain certain
things that cannot be understood without
"As to that bloodstain on the index leaf
of the ledger all I can say is that it is there
and that the man who mutilated the book
cut his finger in doing the work. Did I
see a plaster on Mr. Bresse's finger? Well
(with an enigmatical smile) I did not
make a practice of examining Mr. Bresse's
lingers and hands. But I can wilHncly
say this: 1 do not think Charley Smith
cut up those booktf. Remember, Ido not
say who did, but I do not think he did.
"Yes, I have an opinion as to who did
it, but under the circumstances it would
not be fair for me to express my opinion
"As to the approximate amount wnich I
think Bresse wrongfully took from the
firm I could not attempt to say at present.
The books are in such a shape that it will
be impossible to make much out Jof them
for some time. Yes, I cannot help think
ing that Bresse has been guilty of the
grossest ingratitude toward me.
"The story as coming from his brother,
'that if it had not been for the boy' I would
not have made the Fair wheat deal, and
that I owe more to 'the boy' than he owes
me, is simply bosh. Go" and ask those
who have known me and the firm best and
hear what they have to say about that. I
have always treated the Bresses as though
they had been my own sons, and their
friends have often said I was in fact their
'business father.' "
When asked whom he would like to have
questioned on the head of the business re
lationship of the Bresses and himself Mr.
McGlauflin mentioned the name of W.
Mr. Harrison has heretofore expressed
himself quite freely on the subject of the
firm's dissolution in connection with the
Fair wheat deal, but lie would not allow
himself to be quoted until the request came
direct from Mr. McGlauflin.
"Since he asks for my public opinion,"
he began, "I cannot but give it. I certainly
know that that the Bresses owe whatever
business prominence they may now enjoy
to the tutelage they received at the gener
ous hands of Mr. McGlauflin. There can
be no question on that head in the minds
of those who know the firm and have the
pleasure of my friend McGlauflin's acquain
"As to that Fair deal, I have no hesi
tancy in saying that I think there was
considerable in what Dr. Levingston said
about Fair being ignorant of that trans
action, unless, as has been hinted, that the
Luninjj money was in it also and that
Whittell acted as the buyer, with Fair for
the principal banker. But knowing Fair
as I did, and having heard him express
himself so strongly against wheat specula
tion, 1 cannot brinsr myself to think he'
was entirely cognizant of the way his
money was being bandied."
Defineß His Relations With the Other Fair
"I do not put much faith in the theory
that Mr. Fair knew nothing about the
wheat deal with McGlautiin & C 0.," said
Mr. Goodfellow. "If you had known the
man as well as I did you would see at once
how improbable it is that he would be
ignorant of such a gigantic operation
wherein his own money was being used.
"What you say about my connection
with the trustees of the estate is not exact
ly correct. We are on friendly terms
enough and I have no reason to believe
they are afraid of me, as the story goes. It
is true that when I came back and found
the court had allowed the commissions of
$'25,000 a piece I opposed it— actively and
successfully opposed it — because I did not
think it was right.
"It was a rank injustice to the estate,
and I so told the Judge. It is also true
that sometime back I fought against the
proposition to take $100,000 apiece and re
sign the trusteeship in favor of the heirs.
I deem it a sacred trust, and do not think a
trustee should have a price in discharging
the duties of such a position. The offer of
$100,000 was made, and there was after
ward talk of raising the bid to a quarter of
a million. Concerning the wheat deal
with McGlauflin & Co. I cannot say much.
It may be that the deal went to McGlauflin

The Long and Short.
Messrs. Eppinger & Co. and Messrs. Cut
ter & Moseley were applied to for confir
mation of the statement that some time
prior to the dissolution of the firm of Mc-
Glauflin & Co. Bresse had been selling
short, while his partner was holding long,
but both parties were reticent.
Mr. Eppinger said he had no informa
tion on the subject, and directed the in
quirer to Messrs! Cutter & Moseley. Mr.
Cutter was seen, but if he knows anything
bearing on the division of the house of
McGlauflin against itself he maintained a

The Lining Factor.
It was stated as a part of the Luning
connection with the Fair deal that the
heirs had lost considerable money when
the settlement came about, and that Mrs.
George Fife, one of the heirs, became dis
satisfied and hastened the final adjustment
of the estate's affairs.

about expressing herself.

AN IMMENSE CROWD PRESENT.
The Garrisons from the Harbor Sta
tions Parade Before
The immense parade plain at the Pre
sidio was the scene of a gorgeous military
spectacle yesterday morning. Flags were
aflutter and trumpets blared and the
lieutenant-general of the United States
army was there to see the show. Although
General Schofield has been a visitor at the
Presidio before his very recent advancement
to the rank of lieutenant-general and the
concentration of all of the National troops
in this locality at the historic post made
yesterday's occasion unusually notable.
Moreover, it was the distinguished officer's
last opportunity to review the troops be-
fore his retirement from the active list of
Not since the famous old sham-battle
days has the picturesque reservation
accommodated such an enormous throng
of soldiers and citizens. Officers of the
army and navy and National Guard were
there, and hundreds of City folks went out
to get a glimpse of the much-bebraided
chief and, incidentally, to help him re
view the thing. The clank of sabers and
the glitter of tinsel were everywhere. The
grassy slopes were bewildering patches of
color with scores of accumulated visions
in maize-hued silks and visions as well as
in cerulean cbambray. The small boy was
there, too, but he was no vision — not the
small boy. He was quite sufficiently sub
stantail to worry the life out of General
Graham's most vigilant sentry, absolutely
regardless of the authority which hedges a
uniform when there's a man in it. But
there were no tragedies recorded, and the
small boy allowed it was a "dinky racket."
A few minutes before 11 o'clock a squad
ron of cavalry under command of Lieu
tenant-Colonel Young came clattering
down the road from the Central-avenue
gate, where General Schofield had been
honored with the escort. When the troop
ers readied the parade ground Brigadier-
General Forsyth rode to the side of the
Scnofteld carriage and conducted the lieu
tenant-general and his party to a prettily
flagged platform on the souch side of the
plain. In the carriage with the command
ing officer of the army were Mrs. Schofield,
Lieutenant-Colonel Schofield, his aid-de
camp, and Lieutenant Schofield of the
Fourth Cavalry. The reviewing station
was draped with the National colors and
commanded an excellent view of the
parade ground. Away down on the bay
side of the ground the companies of the
First United States Infantry from Angel
Island were resting, and iu3t as the cav
alry escort came trotting down to the plain
the Presidio garrison and Fort Mason artil
lerymen poured forward from the stables
and quarters to the inspiring strains of
"Manhattan Beach" by the Fifth Artillery
When the lieutenant-general and those
accompanying him were seated Colonel
Young's cavalry squadron formed in troops
front immediately opposite the platform
and presented sabers. The battalion of
light artillery on the north side of the
plain unlimbered, and fifteen guns were
fired in honor of the senior officer of the
National forces. General Schofield ac
knowledged the tributes by doffing his
I chapeau, and the ceremonies of the day
were thus inaugurated.
The brigade under command of Briga
l dier-General Forsyth was formed in close
i column of battalions, the First Infantry,
Colonel Shatter, with one battalion of four
companies from Angel Island, holding the
right of line. Then there were seven heavy
batteries of the Fifth Artillery formed in
two battalions. Major Darling with a bat
talion of light artillery was next in the
line, and the left was taken by two troops
of the Fourth Cavalry under command of
Contrary to the custom which has pre
vailed at the Presidio the troops were
formed for review without the usual pre
liminary ceremonies. The battalions im
mediately changed front to the left on the
first company, the light batteries executing I
the reverse, then counter-marching and
performing other evolutions which
brought them into a battery front forma
tion, facing to the right. The band of the
First Infantry led off with a quick step
and the column began its parade in
The spectacle at this time was superb.
The quick swinging step, the perfect
alignment, and more than all, the brilliant
combination of red and white and yellow
of the different arms of the service and the
guttering trappings of the officers made
up a picture of soldierly pomp and circum
stance which San Franciscans have not
often had the opportunity of seeing. The
spectators were appreciative, too, and
there was no dearth of expressions of com
mendation. As the long column turned in
the direction of the reviewing officer and
came down the plain with band playing
and colors and guidons waving there was
a waving of handkerchiefs from the slopes
and the critics along the sentry line said it
No one applauded, because applause was
out of the question in so serious an affair.
As the colors of the First Iniantry and
Fifth Artillery went by they were dipped,
and the Lieutenant-General and his party
uncovered in token of respect for the Na
At the reviewing-stand the band of the
First Infantry swung out into the center
of the parade ground opposite the gen
eral's position and ceased playing, thus
permitting tne Fifth Artillery musicians
to play for their own regiment in review.
This was an innovation and was highly
commended by the National Guard officers
present, who have frequently experienced
the dire effects on' step and alignment
when several bands were playing at the
When the parade in quick time had been
completed, the companies of the First In
fantry and the heavy batter:.: : of the Fifth
Artillery formed in the cenU ; of the parade
ground. The light batteries, with Cap
tains Morris and Roberts in command,
moved off to the east end of the plain, fol
lowed by the cavalry squadron 01 Colonel
The mounted organizations continued the
march in quick time until they reached the
bay side of the reservation. There they
broke into a lively trot, and after rounding
the area near the heavy gun works, they
pressed forward in the dust toward the re
viewing station. Every horse trotted and
the alignment of the batteries and the
platoons of cavalry was admirably main
On they went, light artillery first and
yellow-trimmed horsemen behind, around
the same course, gradually breaking into a
gallop and almost obscuring the sight with
the clouds of dust that rose in their track.
The gallop of the mounted troops is a rare
spectacle, and when the bugles sounded
the full gallop the spectators were fairly
breathless with interest and excitement.
The riders on the flanks had the oppor
tunity for a display of horsemanship, and
when the settled dust showed the drivers
of the artillery tearing forward with a
vigor impetuous enough to scare the life
out of spectators securely seated on the
hillsides hundreds of yards away, there
was a sympathetic hush, and an occasional
glance toward the post hospital.
It was really a pardonable nervousness.
The flank horses were whipped and shouted
at; the lead drivers, with sabers tossing
over the backs of their steeds, leaned for
ward and spurred and banged and
spurred and came upon the alignment with
a rapidity and precision that were start
ling. The cavalrymen were quite as rf ck
less and tore around the turn as if the fate
of the Nation depended on the way they
did it and the recklessness thereof. It was
a glorious sight, and happily the hospital
corps was not given a place on the pro
When it was all over and the horses were
halted and the sabers were at rest, one of
the trumpeters near the reviewing station
sounded officers' call. The shoulder
strapped gentlemen present responded,
and on arriving at the platform they were
presented to the senior officer of the army.
General Schofield afterward proceeded to
the officers' club on the upper parade
ground and was entertained for a short
time by his friends from the posts around
the harbor. When this concluding feature
of the Presidio programme was over the
General re-entered his carriage and was
escorted by a squadron of cavalry as far as
the Central-avenue gate. He then pro
ceeded to the Palace Hotel.
DUTIES OF THE EMPLOYER.
Rev. J. W. Cruzan's Address
on This Subject Last
A General Discussion of Ethics by
the Institute of Applied
Rev. J. W. Cruzan's paper on "Duties of
the Employer to the Employe" was the
chief feature of last evening's session of
the Institute of Applied Christianity. Mr.
Cruzansa i- d: "Has a capitalist the moral
right to put wages below the cost of living?
May he speculate in starvation? The
Southern Pacific Railroad Company might
reduce the wages of n.en receiving $4 or
$2 50 a day to $1, so placing it out of a
man's power to support his family. But a
nation of corporations given to such acts
would read a prophecy in the lesson
learned by France 100 years ago.
"It may be said that, a man should not
marry till he is able to support his family.
Yet a general following of the loose life of
a bachelor would do more harm than the
pulpit and other agencies for good could
repair in ten years. It is a man's right to
demand more than fair wages.
"Profit sharing is one of the duties of the
employer to his employes. By sharing in
the profits of a business, the emoloyer's
and employes' interests are made identical.
"It does away with indifference and lazi
ness on the part of the employes and they
take care of their employer's interests. It
is a moral education in more directions
than one. It is beneficial to the capitalist
in that it changes the atmosphere of tne
office. General distrust is followed by
mutual confidence. It gives him ten hours
of earnest labor.

to his conscience the question 'Am I my
brother's keeper?' Chas. Pilsbury of Min
neapolis, who has given large sums to his
men as their share of the yearly profits of
the business of which he is the head, says
he has never lost anything by making
such distribution. He is rewarded by the
contented spirit of his workmen and the
immunity from strikes. Profit - sharing
with employes is a solid and accomplished
fact because it rests on the Rock of Ages
and the golden rule.
"It is an employer's duty to conserve
the health and protect the lives of his em
ployes by providing their place of labor
with adequate light, warmth and fresh
air. If he allows unsanitary conditions to
exist unnecessarily he is a murderer. Rail
road companies permit needless slaughter
of thousands by their refusal to put in
automatic couplers. They care more for
money thaa they do for human life. They
who invest money to promote cheerful
ness and healthfulness among those in
their employ receive large dividends.
"It is an employer's duty to prove to his
employes that he is a gentleman. In
order to be obeyed he need not be a boor.
He should show the same courtesy to the
man he employs as to the man with whom
he is associated in business. A similar
principle should operate in the relations
between parlor and kitchen. The girl
who works in your kitchen is entitled to as
much courtesy as is your caller. If you
do not accord it you are not only not a
Christian, but not a lady. A great light
came upon the women who were discussing
the inevitable servant question when one
of their number said, 4 I alWays pray over
the matter.' "
In conclusion he said : "Men of affairs,
