REVERSES AND
AN ASSIGNMENT,
Failure of Schumacher, the
Oatmeal King of
Ohio.
TOO MANY ENTERPRISES
Owes a Million and a Half, but
Creditors Will Be Paid
in Full.
ALL PROPERTY TURNED OVER.
The Pressed Millionaire Was a Noted
Prohibitionist and Once Ran
for Governor.
ARKON, Ohio, May 9.— Ferdinand Schu
macher, the millionaire oatmeal king,
president of the American Cereal Com
pany of Chicago, the Schumacher Gym
nasium Company of this city, the Mar
seilles Land and Water Power Company,
the Illinois River Paper Company of Mar
seilles, 111., and the Tennessee Land Com
pany of Harriman, Term., assigned at 4
o'clock this afternoon. The liabilities are
estimated at $1,500,000 and the assets at
$3,000,000. The assignment was a volun
tary one.
Until three years ago Mr. Schumacher
was a resident of Akron, at which time he
removed to Chicago. When the American
Cereal Company was organized he entered
the combine and was elected president,
which position he occupied and has since
held. The failure was caused by his heavy
losses in the two companies at Marseilles,
which assigned this morning. In order to
save these companies Mr. Schumacher
borrowed $800,000 from Akron, Cleveland
and Massachusetts banks. $200,000 of which
would become due this month.
The greater portion of this amount could
not be renewed nor could Mr. Schumacher
raise the mo#ey to pay the discounts on
the notes. Yesterday he called his attor
ney, Johnston H. Arbogast, and his
nephew, Hugh Schumacher, to Chicaeo,
and his financial condition was carefully
examined. Late yesterday he decided to
assign for the benefit of his creditors, and
a trust deed conveying all his property to
Johnston Arbogast and Hush Schumacher
was prepared. This was filed in this city
to-day.
The property turned over for the benefit
of his creditors consists of $1,000,000 worth
of stock in the American Cereal Company,
$4n,000 worth of stock in the Schumacher
'ivmnasinm Company, the Clarendon Ho
tel and his residence in this city, besides a
large amount of real estate in and about
Akron. Altogether, the property turned
over is estimated at $2,000,000. At the
same time the deed in trust was filed a
cWd in trust by the Schumacher Gymna
sium Company was a!.«o filed. The assets
of this company are estimated at $40,000,
with ti-e liabilities much in exesss.
About six years ago Mr. Schumacher
founded Harriman, Term. He is a strict
prohibitionist, and founded the city on the
same principles. The result was he lost
nearly $500,000 in the transaction. Twelve
years ago he was the candidate on the
Prohibition ticket for Governor of Ohio.
J. A. Arbogast, one of the assignees, paid
to-night that if the property is not sold at
a forced sale the creditors will realize dol
lar for dollar, but if the property was sold
they would lose heavily, as there is no
market for it just as present. But one
mortgaee was riled by Mr. Schumacher.
That was for $35,000 and given to twenty
creditors, jointly, who held claims aggre
gating $5500 to $7000 against Schumacher.
OTTAWA, 111., May 9.— Careful investi
gation fails to show a cause for the $1,000,
000 failure of the Marseilles Land and
Water Power Company and the Illinois
River Paper Company at Marseilles, out
side the general break-up of Fred Schu
macher at Arkon, Ohio, he being the prin.
cipal owner of both places at Marseilles.
His investment in the little city con
sisted of the control of the finest water
power plant in the State, the largest straw
board mill in the world, the Crescent mill,
a wood pulp mill, an electric light plant
and coal mines. On account of the general
business depression none of these had
prospered the past two years, but his losses
in them were not extensive.
THE LOUISANA GOVERNORSHIP.
Trouble Anticipated Wiien the Legiala.
ttere Meets To-JUorrovc.
NEW YORK, N. V.. May 9.— A Snn
special from New Orleans says : A com
mittee consisting of 100 of the leading
! men of New Orleans was ap
pointed yesterday to try and arrange a
settlement of the gubernatorial troubles
and prevent a conflict at the State Capitol
when the Legislature meets on Monday or
when the vote for Governor is counted on
Thuraday. The returns show the re-elec
tion of Foster, Democrat, by a majority of
27,000, but Pharr, the Republican candi
date, asserts that gro<-s frauds have been
perpetrated and that he will carry his con
test before the Legislature and demand an
investigation of the vote.
T ;e Legislature consists of 64 straight
Democrats, 17 members of the Citizens'
League, a reform organization of New Or
leans whirh defeated the Democracy in
that city, t'l Populists and 21 Republicans,
showing a Democratic majority of four
over all.
At one time it looked as if there would
be an armed conflict at Uaton Rouge, and
the militia was ordered to hold itself in
readiness to go to Baton Rouge, but the
chances of violence are now considered
slight, and both sides seem disposed to
leave the matter to the Legislature. The
committee of citizens proposes that ti e
Legislature before counting the vote for
Governor shall pass a new election law and
call h Constitutional Convention which
will limit the suffrage by an educational
qualification and omer a new election
alter this has been done. The Republi
cans have accepted the offer, but Governor
Foster will probably refuse.
WRANGLE OVER INSTRUCTIONS.
The Jackron Murder Case Not let Before
the Jury.
CINCINNATI. Ohio, May 9. — The
Jackson case is not yet in the hands of the
jury, nor l.aye thearmimenti commenced.
It was evidently expected that the jury
would receive its instructions from the
court to-day, but w en couit opened in
the morning Jud^eHelm was not ready
and an adjournment wan taken until 2
o'clock.
Judge Helm had prepared a series of
sixteen instructions to the jury, to several
of which Colonel Crawford took exception.
During the noon hour Colonel Crawford
had prepared five instructions, which he
wished included in the list, but the court
excluded them. The whole of the after
noon was taken up in discussing tie in
structions, and the oniy time the jury was
brought in was shortly before the evening
adjournment, when it was instructed not
to discuss the case.
Several copies of the instructions had
pot out among the reporters, which
judge Helm regretted. He s-aid that the
oopies given out would be modttied, and
would not be the final instructions given
to tie jury.
A loiii; wrangle between the court and
Colonel Crawford over the instructions
consumed the entire afiernoon.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, MAY 10, 1896.
FIGHTING AGAINST
FUTURES IN GRAIN.
Agrarian Leaders to Follow
Up the Blow at the
System.
BUSINESS TRANSFERRED
Operators Will Desert Berlin for
Quarters at Amsterdam and
Antwerp.
THE REFORM OF THE MILITARY
Civil and Military Cabinets of Em
peror William Are Yet in
Opposition.
BERLIN, Germany, May 9.— The lead
ers of the Agrarian party in the Reichstag
have declared their intention to follow up
the blow they dealt against the system of
trafficking in grain futures by proposing
that judgments obtained in other than
German courts arising from disputes grow
ing out of time deals in grain shall not be
enforced in Germany. As international
execution of judgments are regulated by
international laws and treaties any mere
deliverance of the Reichsiag upon this
subject must necessarily remain inopera
tive. The action of the Reichstae in pro
hibiting dealings in futures has led a num
ber ot operators to transfer their grain
transactions to Amsterdam and Antwerp.
Some dealers say that the prohibition of
time deals will not affect business in the
least, as they could carry on future deals
in Chicago or New York independently of
the rules of the Berlin Produce Exchange,
and, though such contracts would not be
legally binding, the dealers say they can
rely upon the good faith of the contrartins:
parties. Several leadme firms, whose
heads are members of the Produce Ex
change, are arranging In conjunction with
a number of Hamburg houses to establish
grain-trade banks in Antwerp, Amster
dam and Brussels. To counteract this
movement Count yon Kanitz, the Agrarian
leader, has given notice in the Reichstag
of his intention to ask the Government to
negotiate with foreign powers for the con
clusion of treaties prohibiting traffic in
grain and produce futures.
The Hanover Courier asserts that the
term of office of the Imperial Chancellor,
Prince Hohenloh*, will end with the close
of the present session of the Reichstag,
but the semi-official press, on the contrary,
declares that a ministerial crisis haa been
averted and that Prince Hohenlohe will
remain in power as lone as his health per
mits.
General Bronsart yon FchelJendorf, Im
perial Minister of War, has succeeded in
obtaining the Emperor's assent to the
scheme for the reform of the mil'tary tri
bunals and also certain reforms in the
army organization which have long been
oppoßed by the Emperor's military cabi
net. The Chancellor and the Minister of
War will continue their struggle against
the influence of General yon Hahnke, the
chief of the Emperor's military cabinet,
and Dr. yon Lucanus, chief of the Kaiser's
civil cabinet, and if they should be suc
cessful it ought to lead to a chance in the
personnel of both the military and civil
cabinets.
Another Colonial Office scandal is excit
ing political and official circles. Baron
yon Wissmann, the Governor of German
East Africa, who sailed from Zanzibar last
Thursday on his way home, does not in
tend to return to bis post, and as a matter
of fact threatens to leave the imperial
service. He has had a quarrel with the au
thorities of the Colonial Office over the ap
pointment to his staff of a certain Herr
yon Eitz, who was associated with the re
cent accusations made against Dr. Carl
Peters, the explorer,
Eugene Wolff, the explorer, in an ar
ticle in the Berlin Tageblatt, makes a
sharp attack upon the Colonial Office au
thorities for their action in sending Lieu
tenant Werther on a mission to East Af
rica to explore a supposed region of gold
reefs.
In 1893 Herr Wolff directed the attention
of the Colonial Office to Werther's conduct,
abuse of power and exactions while he was
at the head of a geological research expe
dition in Africa. Toe Colonial Office
authorities iv respect to this asked Wolff
to keep silent about the matter and
assured him that Werther would never
again be similarly engaged by the Colonial
Office. Herr Woiff now protests against
Werther's second mission and declares
that there is no gold in the regions which
be has gone to explore. The whole
matter, Herr Wolff maintains, is a job.
The blindness of the Grand Duke of
Mecklenburg-Strelitz led him into a dan
gerous predicament last Wednesday while
on his way to the horse fair at New Bran
denburg. As he was being led across a
railroad track his foot became caught in
the rails and could not be extricated.
The consequence was that be was forced
to remain standing for some time in the
middle of the line, over which there was a
very large traffic, owing to the horse fair,
and the trains had to be brought to a stand
still by the signalmen until the Grand
Duke'« foot was finally released by its
being forced out of bis boot.
The Empress on the occasion of the
birthday of Crown Prince William, who
was 14 years old last Wednesday, paid a
visit to the Crown Prince and his brother,
Prince Eitel Frederick, at Ploen, where
they are at school, returning to Berlin
Wednesday evening.
Last evening the Emperor and Empress
gave a dinner to the chiefs of the German
Red Cross Society in commemoration of
the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founda
tion of tho society and were afterward
present at a gala opera performance in
honor of the occasion. To-day the Em
peror and Empress started for Frankfort
and will visit the International Flower
Exhibition at Dresden en route.
