Cincinnati, Deo; 8. When tho United
States' court convened, after tho al journ
roonr. Wilshire, upon further croft-exam-ihntlon,
admitted that he had telegraphed
to Harper from Cleveland under the name
of "Piko" for ft purchase of whoat, and
that he took $000,000 to the American
Notional bank of Chicago for Harper, upon
consideration that the bankers shouUl furn
ish such accommodation as would enable
the deal to bo consummated. This sort of
thing was usual with witness and ho had na
Ditrict Attorney Burnot then prosentod
to Wilshlro for inspection the following:
"Buy 15,000 bushels May wheat at any
thing under 8a E. L. H."
Wilshire admitted that it was Harjwr's,
and said ho signed tho Clovolatid messago
"Pike" to throw brokers oft" thoir guardi
Wilshire thon loft tho stand after occupying
it four hours.
Wilshire was followed by Ebonezor Scho
field, of the First National bank of New
York. Ho produced two certificates of de
posits in tho Fidelity bank each for $200,000,
issued to Harper an(l signed by Baldwin.
James A. Qulnlan, of the New York
Chemical bank, was tbe next government
witnoRS. Ho produced a similar certificate
for $500,000, also to Harper, and signod by
Theso certificates woro collateral for the
famous 1100,000 drafts on the Fidelity bank
.sent to Korshaw and protested.
This closod the afternoon session and court
adjourned for tho day.
Mr. Ebeupzor Scho Hold, of the First; Na
tional bank of New York, resumed his testi
mony in the Harper trial to-day. He testi
fied that on February 12 and 'it tho Fidelity

the entries on the Fidolity books show a
largor balanco they are false.
Gen. Eugene Powell, National bank ex

On June 15, being alarmed by rumors as to
the batik's connection with tho wheat deal,
ho appeared to make a sooond examination.
Harper, Hopkins and Baldwin wore presont.
He told thorn his object. Hurer said ho
had written to the dopartmont at Washing
ton, stating that his bank had met with
losses, and showed a friendly reply. Har
per askod if the correspondence was not
sufilcitmt. Powell replied in the negative.
He then mode an examination and found
three certificates of depoiite, aggregating
$.700,000, bearing no date. Briggs Swift
was asked to explain theso, but he said, in
surprise, he had never seen them before.
Harper, when asked for an explanation,
only shrugged his Bhoulders and made no
reply. There were no entries of theso cer
tificates on the books. Gen. Powell on
June So notiflod the directors ttiat so much
of their resources had been wasted that ho
would be compelled to close the bank.
Mr. John K. Yowell, late discouut clerk
of the Fidelity, testifled that on June 14,
1887, at the direction 'of Mr. Harper, he
sent discount papar to the extent of 91,000,
OOu to the Chemical bank of New York,
June 20, 1837, Harper told him that on
Apr.l 23, 1887, $.113,000 discount paper had
been sent to the First National bank of Now
On May 3, 1887, tho Fidelity books showod
discounts to E. L. Harper & Company
amounting to $1.48,000, and E. L. Harper
for $25,000. Harper gave Yowell directions
to discount the paper of E. L. Harper &
W. H. Campbell, cashier of the Commer
cial bank, then took tho stand and identi
fied a .Y,000 draft, drawn March 17, 18&7,
by Warren Coons, of Chicago, upon the Fi
delity, and xont by the Bank of Montreal to
the Commercial for oolloctlon.
Edward A. Lucius, late special book
keeper, made his bow and added another
link in the chain of evidence. A draft from
Irwin, Groon & Co. upon tho Fidelity for
$50,000 attracted his attention. Ho investi
gated and found that the firm had notcrodit
to that amount. Ho then went to Harper
"Irwin, Groon & Co. havo not this amount
to their credit. What shall I do with the
"I'll attend; to it," replied. Harper, and ho.
did 0, executing a chock to the order of E.,
L. Harper, and indorsed E. L. Hirper. A'
number of similar drafts were received
from Irwin, Green & Co. and Kershaw &
Co. In each case Harper executed his. chock
di-awn upon the Fidelity to meet the obliga
tions. Court adjourned until 2 p. m. narper at
once entered into a livoly conversation with,
his father-in-law, Mr. Matthews. Both
laiighed heartily. Deputy RollUon then
appeared and Harper departed In his cus
tody followed by the ladles.

The Stale Old Fisheries to Absorb the

Some of the Other Matters Treated.
Other Washington Dispatches.
WAbniNOTON, Dea 8. Tho president at
the last mooting of the cabinet submitted
tho rough draft of his forthcoming annual
message to congress. It was fully and
freely discussed for nearly four hours, and
will again bo submitted to tho cabinot in the
form in which it is to bo sent to congress.
Meanwhile speculation is rife as to the con
tents of what will probably be ono of tho
longest official documents ovor written by
Mr. Cloveland. Those who know say that
it will contain approximately 22,000 words.
From excellont sources it is ascertained that
Mr. Bayard's dopartmont will absorb tho
lion's share of tho president's message.
He will announce in the first place either
tho result of the labors of tho fisheries com
mission or tbo fact that they are still at
work. Thoro is an impression prevailing
that tbo commission will sit for tho last
time on Saturday next. It indicates that
the negotiation of a new treaty has been
found impracticable, a result said to bo fa
vored by Mr. Bayard, who is represented as
despairing of getting a treaty acted upon by'
the senate in its present temper. What the
president will probably bo able to announce
in his message is that the commission has
agreed upon an interpretation of tho treaty
A revision of the naturalization laws, tho
establishment of a central bureau for tho
registration of naturalised citizens and a
hint as to tho advisability of restricting by
Federal statute immigration' of anundosira
bio kind, are among the topics discussod by
the president in viow of tho recent Anarch
ist demonstrations in various parte of the
Regarding the tariff and other questions
of finance the president will have little to
say, tho presont plan being, it is said, to let
the secrotary of the treasury deal with both
questions, in extenso in his annual report.'
In a general and very guarded way the
president recommends, it is understood, a
liberal enlargement of the free list, men
tioning, however, by namo none of the arti
cles which, in his opinion, cught to ba placed
thera Upon the wording of this partof the
messago muchcare and attention have been
bostowod. Among those to whom it has
boon read, outside tho members of the cab
inet, are Mossra. Carlisle, Scott and Watter
son. Mr. Randall has been given no oppor
tunity to inspect it A codification of tbe
banking laws amended in the manner pro
posed by the comptroller of the currency is
The president, it is thought, will in a
cautious way recommond a liberal system
of appropriations for tho improvement of
the Mississippi river. He will likewise sug
gest, it is believed that appropriations for
this river be made separately, and not, as
heretofore, in tho river and harbor bill,
which ho has always regarded as an object
of suspicion, more or less. ,
The repeal of tbe pre-omptlon and timber
culture acts is urged in .the strongest terms.
The necessity of preserving the national
forests is also pointed out. The Paoiflb rail
roads, it is understood, will be tho subject
of a spscial message to congress latter on.
Locating the National Convention.
Washington, Dea 3. The fight over the
location for the' Republican convention has '
practically begun. Parties are arriving
from nearly all cities where tho convention
is in demand and every member of the com
mittee is beidg. puled and buzzed and wor
ried to death. It looks now as though it
would probably go west. As Chicago, has
tho prestige of the former conventions and
great accommodations it is evident that
between tho five western cities claiming it,
Chicago has mora supporters thus for than
anyono of the others. SUould tho fight nar
row down to a contest between Chicago and
all other pities in the west, thoy may pool
their strength and decide it in favor of orio
of the number. Philadelphia is also making '
a strong tight, ana olatms to do next to
Chicago on the list.
Faulkuer Not Senator.
Washington, Deo. 8. Quite a stir k
caused hero by' dispatches from West Vir
ginia announcing that the circuit judgo
there has denied the validity of an act of
the special session of tbe legislature which ,
eloctea Fauucnor senator on tne grouna mac
this act was not among tho objects men
tioned in the call for said special session.
The point made against Faulkner that tbe
lection of senator was not mentioned in the
call of the special session, fAd therefore bis

New York, Dea ?, The Journal of
United Labor, of Philadelphia, contains a
second letter from Mr. Powderly on tho
"works of knighthood." In the course of
its three columns he says: "From an or
ganization numbering less than 10,000 mem
bers when the first general assembly, was
held, wo have seen .the KnlghU of. Labor
grow until oyer 700,000 mon and women
claimed membership at one time. While
that vast industrial army was being gath
ered together, while the seed, was being'
sown, rrien who were pioneers were making
sacrifices that the order might live in'
history as a power for good. ,
"Men good And true were blackmailed and
discharged. They never murmured. Th'ey
were not working tot self nor the present;
they were working for prosperity and the
future. When I board men talk of seceding
from the organisation with tbe threat of
starting an iroprovod order I fancy that
tbey know but little of the trials, the dan
gers and the. odds against which they will
have to contend, and I feel that the amoun;
of energy, necessary to build up a new order'
if properly applied to the old one, would
make it Invincible,
"It is true that in the old organization all
who aspire can not bo officers; all wlio ppll
wires can not aucoeedjn.gojtting a position;
but it is equally true that, if they seoedo
and if they succeed in building up a now
order they only make It' possible for other ,
men to pull wires and aspire to the place
which they continually "hope to secure for
theiiisolVes.' If-In, the ne worder they suc
ceed better than in the old ouo and secure
offices, thoy do so' only to find at their el
bows men who, like themselves, will stop at
nothing mean or low to compass their ends."
