Owners of stock of every kind, except
ing cows, should read a notico in special
local column, signed by Chief Myers. It
tells them that the ordinance recently pass
ed by the City Council, prohibiting stock
from ruuning at large, goes into effect noxt
Monday a week and will then bo rigidly
enforced. There is not a little dissatis
faction expressed becauso of the exclusion
of cows from tho provisions of this ordi
nance. Rut the objections come from men
who have no cows of their own, who aio
unwilling to grant that pedestrians have
any rights that cows are bound to respect,
and who cannot, poor simpletons, appre
ciate how important it is that an Alderman
with an eye to tho future should carefully
guard against treading upon tho toes of
any of his constituents. Wo may say,
however, without danger of contradition,
that the Aldermen who strcnuoutly opposed
including cows in tho ordinance of prohi
bition, were actuated more by tearful sym
pathy tor the cows than by a mercenary
desire for future lucrative position. We
are sure, that thoso who were present at
the Council meeting when the ordinance
W8 dipcussed, and who saw the deep con
cerj manifested all around and heard the
pitiful pleadings and eirnest,. eloquent ap
peals of the Aldermen who championed tho
cause of these poor dumb brute?, will seem
the idea that the Alderman were actutted
by any but the purest Henryberghiao
motives. And now, the very next proper
step to take in this matter if we may be
permitted to presume to make a suggestion
would be to adopt an ordinance requir
ing all owners or occupants of property
abutting sidewalks upon which cows are
or may be accustomed to roost at night, to
strew straw or hay upon said walks and
build rain-proof awnings over them for
the comfort and protection of
the unprotected females of the
bovine genus against the wind and weather
of future winters. -

St. Louih, Mo., May 17. Tho arrest of
WelglimaBter Frank McGlnnlss of tho
Missouri Pacific, on charges ot defraud
lng railway companies, has developed a
mine of fraud that seems to Involve muny
business houses heretofore ranking as
highly respectable. Tho arrest reaches a
pool of short weight shippers, not only In
bt. Louis, but throughout tho country,
and developments ot to-day prove that a
comprehensive system of robbery has

have been swindled out of largo sums of
Informed a reporter this morning that
White, tuo young man who acted as a
"go-between" with McGlnnlss and tho
Ran Clulro Lumber Company, had mado a
full confession, which settles the guilt of
McGlnnlss. "About five months ago," ho
continued, "I began to suspect McGlu
nls of crookedness, and tho cbango In the
liiunagemeut of tho Euu Clulro Lumber
Company, started tho present case. Mr.
Muncher, the new manager, was ap
preached by McGinnisH, but failed to tin
derstuiid his hints. Finding that cars
of tho company wero being
detained In tho yards, ho
complained to J. J. O'Con.i -r, commer
dal agent of tho Missouri Pacific. Mc
Giuiilss, I think, had been dealing with
the Kau Clulro previously, and had gone
to tho new manugcr to have his 'sugar'
continued. My reason for so thinking Is
that tho cars of the Eau Claire had never
before been detained. McGlnnlss then

for rendering falso weights. Figures in
my possession snow tliat the Knapp
Stout Lumber Company shipped an aver
age of about fifteen cars per day during tho
past nine months, on each of which
McGlnnlss saved them eighteen dollars,
or a total of $270 a day. Whoever is

of rive or six politicians, men quite

with grief, bordering on suicide. lie
claims he was first placed in the position!
of shame by the man for whom he worked
iu the Knapp-Stout Company.
. The Missouri Paclllc asked that In con
sideration of the fact that Whito was led
luto the business and that he had ren
dered tho company valuable assistance,
his bond be placed at a low figure, and
Judge Noonun fixed It at 81,000, J. D.
Johnson going his security. In the otkei
warrant his personal security was ac
cepted. The company state the business
started when the Gould system In
augurated what Is known as the Western
Weighinasters' Association to systematize
things. Tho welghmasters then formed
a pool, Including Chicago, Hannibal,
Quincy, Kansas City nud St. Louis. They
tried for awhllo to work cotton aud grain,
but for somo reason the scheme fell
through. Tho lumber business, however,
was such a success that all the prominent
lumber shippers at the points named are
said to bo Involved.
One of the railroad men said this morn
ing that for a year every car that passed
over tho Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
was reported 10,000 pounds less than
Us real weight, making a loss to tho
Company of eighteen dollars on
each car. Tho whole business will
be laid before tho Grand Jury. Points
at a distance were untouched by tho
pool as there was danger of rewelghlng
and consequent detection. Arrests
throughout tho country are expected
this afternoon as the whole matter Is
beforo the Gould olllclals. Wclghmaster
McGlnnlss is out on a bond of $2,500.
NOW IN F.l'KOl'K.
Nelson C. Chapman of tho Eau Claire
Lumber Company said to-day that he
knew nothing about White, had never
had any transactions with him, and if
White and McGlnnlss had attempted to
Involve tho company In a system of false
weighing under the old management, the
only one who would know about It was
the former Vice-President, who Is now In
m'ginmss was tii kmc.
Mr. Dorsey, of the Kuapp, Stout Co.,
was Been this afternoon. . Ho expressod
surprise at the developments, and says
he doesn't know McGlnnlss, but thinks a
man of that name visited the ofllce last
summer In company with another man.
Captain Duggcr, manager of the com
pany, is In Chicago, and none ot the
officials are here.
Washington, D. C, May 17. In tho

The motion was resisted by the friends
of the Oregon Central Railroad Lund

tained the motion by a vote of Ml to 25,
and went into the committee of the whole,
with Dorsholiner iu the chair. The bill
was taken up for consideration, unit after

The Excitement in Financial Circles
Monetary Affairs in Wall Street and
Throughout the Country Besum
lntr Their Wonted Condition.
Nnw YoitK, May 17. Affairs In finan
cial circles wore a more settled uspect
this morning, and the rush and turmoil
which has characterized Wall, Broad und
New streets the pust several duys has ut
most entirely disappeared. Mutters seem
rapidly settling down to their regular
routine. Yesterday having passed with
liut one small failure, brokers and specu
lators left tho street last evening feeling
more at ease than at any time since the
commencement of the punic. No ominous
reports were In circulation, and nothing
that lu any way portended or foreboded
trouble for this morning.
Affairs at the olllecs of tho suspended
firms aro progressing much us they were
tho duys preceding the crash, and the
members of the various concerns when
asked as to their affairs, stated thut they
were rapidly getting mutters In shape,
some going so fur as to say thut their re
sumption would be only a question of a
few days. At the Metropolitan Hank
mutters are running smoothly and there
are no external Nlgns of anything unusual
going on. Confidence appears to be grad
ually growlug, and trepidation and
feverish unxlety aro giving place to
hope. Tho opening transactions
wero characterized by a strong tone,
and stocks ,were bought In as
rapidly as offered. In fact, during tho
first ten minutes It was a regular rush to
buy aud prices jumped up rapidly. At
the expiration of the first ten minutes
values showed an improvement of 1-2 to
2 per cent. At the first board the buying
began to flag and wus followed hi the
next hour by a vigorous selling. Con
siderable stock was thrown oil the mar
ket for some cuuso then unknown and
caused alarm among the timid opera
tors. The lultcr also began to
unload and In a little while
prices were going down at a rapid
ruto. It was subseoiienily learned that
tne selling ana unloading of stock was
tho result of arrangements between Rus-
sell Sage and several holders of prlvl'eces
on him. The purport of the agreement
was that the holders of privileges should
sell out In tho market stock he had
bought to deliver and receive a check
from Sago equal to the difference be
tween the price obtained and the price
nxea in put.
At 11:30 prices, under tho selling, re
acted to tho lowest llgures.
