The Foreign Wuasts of tho Northern Pa
ciflo Railroad Excol tho Natives as Dead
Nkw Yokk, Oct. 12. Some ot the stock
holders of the Northern Pacific railroad
company are mail. They have seau the
price of their stocks dwindle nearly 40 per
cent, in the market. It has made them
feel very Hire. Their irritation was In
creased by the expenditure of a large sura
of the company's money, about i250,00) it
is currently reported, to feast and other
wise provide for the euratg at the ceremo
uies of completing the road. They re
strained themselves, however, pend
ing that event, apparently because
of the belief that it and tbo greu
excursion of foreigners would result in
a buoyant influenro upon the price of the
securities of ibe company. They were dis
appointed, aud their disappointment grow,
daily. In their latest, grievance it is said
that they have the companionship of Presi
dent Yillard. The foreign excursionists,
w ho-e expenses were guaranteed by .Mr.
Yillard from the time they left their homes
until tiny might return to them, arc now
returning to this city. They were let loose
to follow their own inclinations after the
golden spike was driven and Mi" Evarts
bad completed his sentences, und many of
them have been slowly enjoying their way
back front the Pacific coast at the expense
of the Northern Pacific railroad company.
Some of them have been in this city
for a week or ten days, and evince no dis
position to have it. They are the guests of
tbe Northern Pacific at the Windsor, Hie
Fifth Avenue and other fashionable; hotels.
They want to sec the sights of New Y'ork.
Some do not want to return except upon
certain steamers. Some of them sailed
upon the Sailer on Wednesday, but were
brought hack by tho disabled steamer yes
terday. Now that tbe road has been
opened, and that the stock Instead of boom
ing has persistently pursued u contrary
course, the foreign guests have apptrently
inspired no buying orders from abroad,
aud Mr. Yillard has confessed to an
enormous limiting debt and slapped uuotber
inortLMge of $20,0110,0110 upon tho properly,
tho bonds under which tiro to be sold at a
handsome discount, to say nothing of a
handsome commission. Some of the stock
holders begin to feel that the money that Is
being expended for high priced hotel hills,
wines and other luxuries for tho foreign
guests might belter be applied to their own
Interests. The company Is economising lu
other respects by dmpenalng with the ser
vices of those employes whose labors are
uot absolutely necessary for the
conduct of lis business and the operation of
Its road. 1' is said that the reduction In
the force extends from tho executive
olUcers lu Ibis city to tho train hands uud
shops, und that the next economy will bo
directed to tho pay-rills of Hie company.
In Justice to the foreign guests it should bo
s tid that some of them who remain in tins
city huvo ceased to he the guests of the
company. According to some of the stories
told in Wall street deadheadlsm Ian riot
durliiat tho trip across the continent, it
was tho fashion of some of the excursionists
to chnrge everything they wanted to buy
to the Northern Pacific railroad or to Mr.
Villard. Somo ot the in even bought clothes
at the expense of the company, whilo tho
"slating" of a round of drinks was no un
usual occurrence. This Is the way It is ro
tated that one of the Btifus Hatch parly
nearly lost Mr. Hatch's life. He pur
ehastid lomii goods in a frontier town, and
had the hill charged to Uncle lUifus. When
tho party took tho train tho enterprising
shopkeeper was on hand and preseuled tho
bill to tho Undo. Mr. Hatch who, whllo
he did not repudiate it, disclaimed any
knowledge of tuo merit of tho transaction.
The shopman consulted his pocket, with
the result that Undo Itufu was only too
glad to obtain a rcoetpiM) bill at any price,

rheft of the Evidenoe Taken Before the
Grand Jury in the Gambling Cases.
Ij uli') l'olioe Board a Party to tha OrlmeP
Sr. Lucia, Oct. 12. The crowning out
rage of the police scandals was perpetrated
s. mil! time during last night or very early
this morning, Somo person or persons en
tered tho oillce of the deputy clerk ot the
Criminal court and stolo therefrom all tbe
evidence taken before tbe grand Jury in Its
investigation of tbe doings of tbo Board of
Police Commissioners. This evidence
was embraced In live short-hand books,
ihat portion which has been transcribed
being in the possession of Circuit Attorne y
Harris. In all, they c.Atalned tbe testi
mony of about twenty witnesses examined
in that particular case.
To show that the thieves were bound not
to miss a line of this Important evidence
they also took with them four other short
hand note hooks containing testi
mony taken before the same body in several
murder cases. These, of course, they did
not want, but probably obeyed orders in
taking every scrap of paper that might by
the remotest chance relate to the material
desired by the scoundrels who wish to be
forewarned in order to be forearmed.
The cover over the type writer was re
moved, and matter on it was read, but not
touched, us It did not relate to tbe subject
in hand, but a sheet of foolscap lying on
the desk, anion which were gome short
I. ami notes was taken.
once in tho oillce tbe work was easy
enough. The secret of tho grand Jury
room are kept iu the drawers of a desk,
and these drawers are never locked, not
even during the day, when scores of people
are going in and out of the room. Again,
so well are they guarded that one of the note
book- was left on a shelf beside the desk, as
il inviting some one to pick it up. Tho desk
contain eight drawers, four on either side,
and in two of them on the left band were all
the coveted books except tjiel'iiio on tbe
shelf. Nothing else was Ukeu, but the
work of securing this book could bavo been
done in a few minutes.
How was an entrance secured? is the
ijUesUoii.and tbat is easily answered. Some
body had a duplicate key of tbe door, for
there are only two w indows to the room,
ami tin y open into an urea thirty feet deep.
One of tin; windows is nrar a window of the
Criminal Court, but the distance is too great
for i. ven the most venturesome to attempt to
cross the chasm. Besides this, the window
was down, and it requires considerable
strength to open. There again, there are
no marks on cither of the window ledges,
so entrance by the windows may be dis
missed as impracticable. Upon the door
there is no mark whatever. Where the key
was obtained, somebody of course knows,
but whether tbe tearet will ever be divulged
remains to bo seen.
Jas, Johnson, the official stenographer of
the Criminal court, and the legal custodian
of the short-hand notes taken in tho grand
jury room, was asked when he first dis
covered his loss. Ho replied that when
be got to the outee about 0:30 o'clook
he opened the drawers and found tbe
books gone. He said he hatl no
theory to advance in regard to how the
burglars got in or why they took those
James Johnson informed Circuit Attorney
Harris of tho theft and tbe lallor Immedi
ately tiled the following motion with tbe
clerk of tbe court:
To the Honorable Garrett S. Van Wag
oner, Judgo of tbe St. Louis Criminal
The court is respectfully luformed that
he desk of the official short-hand reporter
has, since the adjournment of court yester
day, le ;i ' ut' i ' I and the notes- books and
certain trutisciipls have been Wen thcro
froin. The notes and books taken Include
all those relating to the Investigations of the
last grand Jury aud several important cases
pending in this aud other Jurisdiciions.
The court Is respectfully asked to order an
immediate investigation of this matter and
to make such order lu rcferenco to the cus
tody and caro of bonks, notes and tran
scripts as will insure their safety from im
proper examination and theft.
JOS. R. IlAltlilH,
Judge Van Wagouer, Hpon the filing of
the motion, asked Mr. Harris when lie
wauled tho investigation made, and the
hitter replied: "As early as possible"
The examination was then set for 2 o'clock
In the afternoon.
Tho thieves, whoever they were, accom
plished little by their audacious venture.
The records can subserve no purpose what
ever, and their destruction cannot possibly
interfere with the prosecution of the offen
ders who were criminated by tho testimony
taken before tho grand Jury. Tho wit
nesses can ho again recalled and the same
testimony elicited, so that the offenders
against the law cannot evade punishment
by their theft of tbo stenographer's notes.
