rltuii Complaint from St. Louis ruriil
tiiro Hoard of Truth-.
New Yoiik, Feb. 12. A Washington
dispatch nfllnns that a dispatch was sont
to tho interior department asking Secre
tary Noblo to come to tho whito house
immediately upon important business.
Tho secretary responded and was clos
eted with Mr. Harrison over half an
hour. The result of this conference was
that Mr. Noblo returned to tho interior
department in haste and summoned into
his private room two of his most trusted
assistants. Tho gentlemen selected for
this important investigation wero A. C.
Toner, chief of tho appointment division,
and George W. Evans, chief of tho
finance division. Thoy wero instructed
to lay aside all other work and begin at
once a thorough and systematic over
hauling of tho census bureau.
They wero told that the investigation
was at tho personal request of the presi
dent nnd that Mr. Harrison would be
glad to havo a report at as early a day
as is consistent with a conscientious in
vestigation. Mr. Toner and Mr. Evans,
howover, wero unable to begin their
labors until Tuesday morning. They
Ayere cautioned to keep their investiga
tion ns secret as possible, but tho fact
necessarily became known to several
people. Mr. Porter's friends, who havo
heard of it, aro very much incensed at
this action of tho president.
When the investigation was ordered
Mr. Porter was not in tho city and had
been away for soveral weeks. They pro
nounced it taking unfair advantage of
tho superintendent, and said that if there
was anything tho president could not
understand beforo putting tho experts
to work, ho should havo iisked tho
superintendent to oxplain it.
One of tho things Secretary Noblo is
particularly interested in is a complaint
from tho merchants of St. Louis. It
was signed by II. E. Lasher, president
of iho St. Louis furniture board of trade
and was dated Jan. 22.
Mr. Lasher called attention to tho
vast interests represented by tho mem
bers of tho board of which ho was
president. Ho said that Superintendent
Porter, when ho made his speech to tho
Commercial club of St. Louis, on Nov.
21, gavo in detail tho manufacturing
statistics upon which tho merchants of
St. Louis relied and based their calcu
lations and which have since, to
their great indignation, been proven
to bo altogether unreliable and
worse than worthless. Tho letter con
tinues by stating that Chief Special
Agent Baines had publicly stated six
months ago that his field work was com
pleted, and added upon tho authority of
Mr. Porter that tho manufacturing sta
tistics would be sent out in an ollicial
bulletin from tho census office within
"I want to call your attontion," says
Mr. Lashor, "to tho fact that Superin
tendent Porter stated that ho hud
plenty of money with which to com
plete tho work. With plenty of money
and ample thno tho merchants of St.
Louis feel justified in requesting that
you inform them tho causo of this ap
parent neglect and unwarranted delay. "
BnniiNaiiAJi, Feb. 12. Deputy United
States Marshals Jackson and Baker re
turned from Cleburno county with two
prisoners and tell of a brutal attempt
wtiue by a gang ot conspirators to mur
der J. W. Sneadmann, wifo and 9-year-old
James. Shortly after supper Tues
day night James went to the front door,
opened it and looked out. While stand
ing there the reports from two shotguns
wero heard. Tho boy fell unconscious
to tho iloor and his mother reeled and
fell also. The bullets had taken
effect in tho boy's abdomen and tho
mother's breast Tho mother recovered
consciousness und picked her son up in a
dying condition. The mother, at last re
ports, is oxiected to livo but a fow hours
and tho boy is already dead. It seoms
the brutes bad mistaken tho boy for
old man Sneadmann, a government wit
ness iu a moonshiniug caso, who was ab
sent at the time.
Pension for Kx-Coiifcdurntrs.
Jackson, Miss., Feb. 12. Tho house
has passed a bill appropriating $01,200 a
year for iwnsions. This will give thoso
now on tho rolls $50 each. Tho present
appropriation is only $80,000. Tho bill
provides that all indigent ex-Conf ederato
soldiers, sailors, servants and tho indi
gent widows of such shall bo entitled to
$50 per month, unless tho number at this
rate exceeds tho appropriation, iu which
event tho amount shall bo pro-rated be
tween them. It is estimated that tho
indigent clause will put at least 0000 on
tho rolls in a fow years compared with
tho 1280 now on. If this turns out true
the amount that each will receive will
only bo about $12. Tho bill makes tho
auditor the pension commissioner.
Vienna, Feb. 11. Rumors nro current
that another revolution has broken out
in Sorvia. All telegrams from Servia
nrmilnVnt to censorship. Tho Scr-i
minister in Vienna says that tberu is
truth in the rumor.
PPT- CLIQUE OF BULLION MEN.
Chicago, Feb 12. Charles E.McCon
noil, a banker of Montrose, Colo., in an
interviow hero said: "Prices paid by
tho government for silver bullion under
tho present coinage act are controlled by
a cliquo or rim? of speculators who raise
or depress silver quotations at their own
pleasure and for their own profit I do
not make this charge from hearsay or
rumor. I do know it to bo a fact, and I
am personally acquainted with somo of
tho men composing tho combination
Somo western silver men are in it, but it
is made up chielly of eastern speculators.
Tho mint buys silver twice a mouth, re
ceiving sealed bids. By some means,
known but to themselves, tho manipula
tors of tho silver market always know
theso dates of purchase far in advance t
Between tho days on which the gov
ernment buys silver tho price is de
pressed, but when tho United States is
in tho market as a purchaser quotations
go up, nnd tho ring bikes its profit. Not
only is tho government mulcted in this
way, but tho silver producer on a small
scale, who, not getting into the ring,
is simply robbed. Many members
of congress aro fully awaro of tho exist
ence of this silver cliquo and know all
about its manipulations if they do not
share in its profits."
Wnnt mi Improvement.
Washington, Fob. 12. Aqniotmovo
ment is on foot among Harrison's friends
to securo an improvement in tho quality
of delegates elected from tho south to
tho national convention. It is a notorious
though uncomfortable fact that many
colored delegates in former conventions
wero merely a purchasable article, sell
ing their votes to the highest bidder
alter arriving nt tiie convention, it l?
hoped by tho selection of whites to di
courago this custom and at tho samo
time got a class of delegates who can bo
relied on. The administration will also
insist that no officeholders go as dele
gates to the convention.
Tins Wutur Was Had.
Topkka, Kas., Feb. 12. For somo
time the peoplo of Norton, Kas., havo
been complaining of tho -water furnishod
by tho local water company. It finally
became so foul no one would uso it.
Tuesday night the pumps were stopped
and tho workman entered the btnndpipo
to clean it. To his horror he discovered
tho badly decomposed remains of a man
which evidently had been there for
weeks. The coroner decided it must bo
tho body of some unknown laborer pass
ing through tho city in search of work
who had committed suicide by jumping
in tho reservoir.
