A Bad Failure.
Chicago. Oct. 9.— N. M. NeeU, manag- j
es partner in the well known packing j
louse of J. G. Ferguson & Co.. is alleged j
to be in Canada, having issued $400,000 in '
togas ware boose receipts. The loss will
fail entirely on the banks— a Xew York
bank being in for 5100,000. The Chicago
banks which lose are all rich. Xeeld is j

night He was 45 years of ase. J
He was a bis speculator on the
wrong side of ' stocks. Ferguson re- j
fuses to make a statement Neeld was a ;
director of the board of trade.
The firm was composed of J. C. Fergu- ;
son and Ferguson & Son; Goodbody, of
Liverpool; Neeld. a son-in-law, and a Mr. j
Howard, also a son-in-law. The latter had
bis headquarters at New York, and from j
that place managed the shipments. For j
that reason some banking was done there. I

without a dollar of security. The heaviest j
losers here are the banks, and in this order:
The First National, the Metropolitan, Illi
nois National and probably a number of
others. The Continental is the smallest
loser among the banks. It is explained
that Xeeld was
NOT A SHREWD BUSINESS MAX.
He was the cause of the failure of his
father-in-law some years ago. Mrs. J. C.
Fenmsoo, however, was very wealthy, and
loaned money to start the house here. She i
now holds a mortgage on it. The defalca- i
tion grew, it is "believed, through a year, j
and it is presumed it started with no really
dishonest motive. Bat the buyers' receipts
■were soon beyond his control and before he
left he sunk everything out of sigiit. The
house of J. C. Ferguson & Co. is one that
has been in existence for twenty-five years.
It was in existence in Indianapolis before
Chicago was the packing center. Xeeld
married the daughter of J. C. Ferguson,
whom he has now

lie and a son of the senior Ferguson.
Edward, moved here and opened a house
at the yards about ten years ago. Xeeld j
has been the managing partner ever since.
For ■ number of years he really has been
the head of the firm. It did a very large
business with England, and rated as high
as any firm in the trade, although, of j
course, not doing business on any such
scale as one or two other houses. It now
appears that the firm had lately ceased
active operations in killing hogs, and that
the storage receipts were either fradulently
issued, or else that the property covered by
them had been removed and converted into
money, which was either squandered on the
board of trade or carried away. The bank
ers were somewhat reluctant to talk about
the matter this afternoon. The blow was
unexpected, and they had hardly time to re
cover their breath. The manager of the K.
G. Dunn & Co. Commercial agency, said
that J. C. Fereuson & Co. had been
DOING THEIR BUSINESS
principally through the Exchange National
bank at the stock yards, which has more
intimate business relations with the First
National bank of Chicago than with any
other. The agency refused to give the
rating of the involved packing firm, except
to say that it was very good and that
$400,000 might cripple it. but it would not
necessarily cause complete failure. The
losers, of course, are very reticent, but it is
known that the following banks have suf
fered: Corn Exchange, of New York;
First National, of Chicaeo: Metropolitan,
of Chicago; Bank of Montreal, of Chicago;
Bank of Illinois, of Chicago; Continental,
of Chicago, and the British Bank of North
America. It is also said that some of the
Boston banks were stuck. It is said that
the First National bank here is
THE HEAVIEST LOOSER.
About £300.000 is divided among Chicago
banks. At C o'clock to-day, Secretary
Stone, of the board of trade, declared that
the warehouse receipts of J. C, Ferguson
& Co. were '•irregular." Neeld had. of
course, opened as a warehouseman, but this
was for only $5,000. A banker, who is
familiar with the facts, says that the losses
with the banks are as follows: Corn Ex
change, of New York, 8100,000: Bank of
British North America, 875.000; First
National, of Chicago, 350,000; Continental,
of Chicago, 150,000; Metropolitan, of Chi
cago, 520, 000. This banker said, however,
that there were a great lot of receipts in
the bands of board of trade capitalists, so
that while the loss of the banks is only
5295,000, there will beat least 8100,000
owed on the outside. The firm's capital
THE HOUSE AT THE YARDS
is mortgaged for SSO.OOO to Mrs. J. C. Fer
guson. The First National called a loan
two days ago and that caused the trouble.
Attachments were taken against the firm
this afternoon by William Kirkwood & Co.
for 59,600, and by William E. Webbe &
Co. for 51. 340. The bank will take out no
attachments, for the reason that all that was
found in the warehouse, where there should
have been 8500,000 worth of property,
was 300 bags of salt The method of fraud
was this: He issued receipts to the banks
on pork, meat and lard in the Ferguson
house at the stock yards to the amount of
about 8400,000. On these he borrowed
money from the banks. A share of the
linns banking was done in New York, and
for that reason about 8100.000 is owM at
one institution there. The First National
is among the heavy sufferers there.
• THE FIRM BANKED THERE.
Last month Xeeld sold the stuff in his
warehouses over again to other parties and
grot money on that. Xeeld was here up to
Thursday noon. It was known three days
that the firm was in trouble. No crooked
ness was suspected until yesterday, when
the bank, alarmed at not finding Xeeld,
tried to attach certain property on winch
they held receipts and found no prop
erty there. By that time word was received
from Xeeld, who was In Canada. B. P.
Hutchinson says: '"It is about the worst
thing that has ever happened to the trade."
Mr. Ferguson was in no condition to talk
to-day. He was in a terrible state of
mental anguish. When asked about the
truth of the reported flight of Neeld he said
he hart had no time to investigate the af
fair. As soon as this could be done he would
be willing to talk, but for the presmt he
did not know where Neeld was, nor did he
know anything about the embezzlement.
HE WAS KYWCIIED.

Allapata. Ga., Oct. 9. — Benjamin W.
Furlong, who committed suicide here two
weeks ago. led a singular life of despera
tion. From the time when he was a boy to
the hour of his death, he was a terror to
every neighborhood in which he lived. He
is credited with bavins committed innumer
able crimes. On September 1. he started
on a big debauch, and was so desperate that
even his confederates feared him. On the
night of Thursday, September 23, he called
his, wife and children to him, asked them to
pardon him for his past bad conduct,* and
declared that the morning's light would
find him a new man. After kissing them
he retired to his room, where he was found
an hour later in a comatose condition, aud
by his side was an empty laudanum vial.
The end came before morning, and with the
news of Furlong's death went rumors of a
darker crime. No one would speak for
over a week, and then the story came out.
which established the fact that Furlong had
been driven to suicide because of a murder,

IS THIS BLACKMAILING?
A Chicago Woman Says She Has
Found a Lost Husband.
The Allesed Ilusband Says It Is a Case
A woman registered at the Merchants as
Mrs. A. B. Staudenmyer, Matoon. 111., last
Friday . afternoon. Yesterday she called at
police headquarters and explained . that she
was in search of her husband, who ' bad left
her three years ago. Inquiry brought out
the statement that the man she claimed as her
husband was Benjamin B. Staudenmyer, who
keeps a saloon at 18 East Seventh street.
Stau<!enmyer was sent for, and on arriving at
the station was identified by the women as
the person she was in search of. Stauden
myer denied that the woman was his wife or
ever had been, and explained that at one
time she was employed by nim at a salary of
$50 pet month. This pat a different complex
ion on the affair, and the officers advised her
to consult an attorney. Mrs. Staudenmyer,
us she calls herself, was seen at the hotel last
evening. She is about 35 years old. She ad
mitted that there had been no marriage cere
mony, as provided for dv law, but said
that she had lived with Staudenmyer
lor years and passed as his wife. She said she
had not made up her mind just what to do,
but thought she would bring 1 suit aprainst
Staudenmyer. He left her, she claimed,
three years ago and she had not known
where he was until recently, when she
learned that he was married to a St. Paul
lady. In case anything- was published about
the affair she wanted papers sent to her ad
dress at 75 Halstead street, Chicago.
SAYS IT IS BLACKMAIL.
Mr. Staudenmyer, when questioned
about the story last evening said
it was a blackmailing: scheme
and nothing: else. The woman he hud em
ployed as a servant to take care of his chil
dren after his wife's death, and paid
her £50 a month lor her serviced.
For reasons which he thought best not
to mention, as they might reflect on
the woman's character, he discharged her.
She never went by his name tojhis knowledge,
and was known in Chicago as Mrs. Perkins.
He said he had received a note from her last
evening:, telling him that unless he called at
t.ie hotel before 9:30 o'clock she
would expose him in the papers.
He had consulted an attorney and
had been advised to pay no attention to her
threats or demands. He intended to fljfht
the matter in the courts if suit was com
menced, and said again and again that the
woman's object was to extort money from

The Flap i* Chicago*,
Chicago wins the pennant of 1886. The
struggle has been the severest in the
league's history, and the champions have
fairly earned their victory, for they have
not only won more gained than any of their
competitors, but they have won every series
contested. Detroit has taken every series
except that with Chicago, and the differ
ence between the teams in this series, four
games, is but one more than the difference
between them on the season's work. New
York and Philadelphia were very evenly
matched, each having won eight games of
the other, and there is but a trifling differ
ence in their percentages. Boston and St.
Louis have done scarcely so well as their
friends hoped, while Kansas City and
Washington are at the foot of the list,
where all shrewd guessers placed them
from the start. Detroit gained a lead about
the middle of May, and held it by a narrow
margin most of the season. New York be
came a dangerous competitor on the second
visit of the Westerners to the East, so dan
gerous, in fact, that it pushed Chicago out
of second place for a day, and was
but two games behind Detroit.
At this point the general impression
prevailed that the Giants would feet to the
front and stay there, but they commenced
dropping games to Washington and Phila
delphia, and on their Western trip lost so
often that they fell out of the race. Since
their return home they have done pretty
good ball playing, and were considerably
nearer Chicago at the season's close than a
few weeks earlier. It is expected *the
league will be composed of the same clubs
next year, although there is much mouthing
going on in some quarters. For instance.
Boston is at outs with Manager Watkins,
of Detroit, who, it is urged, pays no atten
tion to the $2,000 limit, but buys up players
right and left at whatever price he is
obliged to pay. It is also claimed at the
Hub that Boston pays Detroit 55 to $1 re
ceived in gate receipts, and many there
want the league broken up and an Eastern
league formed of Atlantic states clubs.

Chicago. Oct. 9.— Seldom has such in
terest in the base, ball championship race
been manifested^ in** this city as during to
day when. the reports of the Philadelphia-
Detroit games at Philadelphia, and the Bos
ton-Chicago game at Boston were being re
ceived through the "tickers" and an
nounced on the bulletin boards about the
city. It was known that to make sure of
its hold upon the pennant the White Stock
ings would have to win the game with Bos
ton, or Detroit would have to lose one or
more games with Philadelphia. When the
news was received of Chicago's victory and
Detroit's defeat there was cheering by the
crowds. On learning of the club s victory
President Spalding, of the Chicago club,
sent a telegram to Capt. Anson, in which
You bave clinched the pennant In great
style. Knew we could depend upon the old
war horses in a pinch. You have won the
league championship. Now come home and
win the world's championship.
The telegram also notified the members
of the team that a suit of clothes awaited
the order of each, and that the team col
lectively should receive one-half of the
receipts in the coming games with St.
Louis. The first games with the St. Louis
Brown Stockings will be played here on
Oct. 18, 19 and 20 and three games in St.

Chicago 12, Boston 3.
Boston", Oct. 9. — Chicago administered
an overwhelming defeat to Boston to-day.
Clarkson pitched for Chicago. He was so
effective that but four single hits were
made by the local players. Stemmyer,
who pitched for Boston, was batted very
freely. The features outside of the battery
were the batting of Kelly and Anson and
the base running of Goie and Sunday for
Chicago. The fielding of Nash for Boston
was miserable and the general play of the
home team was as loose as their batting
was weak. Flint, the Chicago catcher,
injured his hand in the sixth inning and was
obliged to retire. The came was called at
the end of the seventh inning on account of

Philadelphia Vs. Detroit.
Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. — The
league championship season closed here to
day with two games between Detroit and
Philadelphia. The first game began •at 3
o'clock in the presence of 8,000 persons.
Both clubs were on theic; mettle, but the
Philadelphians batted Smith, the left
handed phenomenon, with great . freedom,
while the hits of the Wolverines off Fergu
son were too widely scattered to be pro
ductive of runs. The fielding was superb,
every run scored being earned. The home
club settled all chances of the Detroit club
winning the championship by bunching five
hits in the third inning, two in the fourth
and two triple baggers in the eighth. t - Fer

St. Paul's Team for 1887.
Manager Barnes, of the St. Paul team,
gave represe ntatives of St. Paul papers a
tip a week ago as to the composition of his
team in ISB7, requesting them to keep the
matter quiet for a time, but since Manager
Whitcomb, of Minneapolis, has seen tit to
make a statement on the subject, the names
of the members of the team may as well be
correctly given to the public. Here they 1
are: Sowders and Baldwin, pitchers; Col- j
gan and Sage, catchers; Pickett, first base; i
McCarthy, second base; Cleveland, third
base; Crooks, short stop; Wilmont,
left field; Jevne, center field; Murphy, right
field. So far as fielding is concerned this
is a powerful aggregation, but it is conspic
uously weak in spots at the willow. Pickett,
Cleveland, Wilmont and Murphy are hard
hitters, Sowders and Baldwin fair, Colgan.
Crooks and Jevue only good at times, and
Sage and McCarthy pretty regularly weak, j
However, the team is much stronger than
that of 1886, and it is believed it will always
work together for victory.

The Episcopal Convention Hears Re
ports From the Territories.
Flattering Progress, Despite a Combi
nation of Adverse Circumstances.
The Episcopal Convention.
Chicago, Oct. 9.— The fourth day's session
ot the bouse of deputies of the Protestant
Episcopal church began at the Central Music
ball at 9 o'clock.
Bishop Dunlap, missionary bishop of New
Mexico, reported the result of three years',
labor in New Mexico and Arizona. He said,
the business interests of the two territories
bad been in a measure paralyzed by the mur
der of nearly four hundred white people by
the Indians. In the past six years the value
of church property had increased from
$5,000 to $47,000, all but $7,000 of which was
raised among the people there. The bishop
said he could not but feel that the Eastern
cities had not contributed their share toward
the spread of the Gospel and to aid the
growth or" the church. There were only four
I missionaries in the field, and the annual ap
propriation, $3,000, was divided equally
among them. The : support from the board
averaged smaller than that of apy other de
nomination. Still the church membership
bad grown rapidly and if proper aid was ex
tended, the church.
-, WOULD BE FIRMLY' ESTABLISHED.
. Right Rev. Brewer, missionary ; bishop Of
Montana, said the number of communicants
"had increased to 927; ia- the . territory. X The
church had now eleven ' church instructors
i and four rectories. The people of the terri
tory had been very liberal, but the means at
hand hud been inadequate for church work,
i Many of the missionary workers were com
| pelled to enter upon • the work without any
! promise of salary, but nevertheless they had
remained in the field and had succeeded in
materially aiding the church's growth. He
acknowledged with feeling the aid rendered
the missionaries Jin the field by the ladies'
auxiliaries of Massachusetts and Pennsylva
nia. Bishop Paddock,
MISSIONARY OF WASHINGTON TERRITORY,
said the last three years hud been ones of
great monetary depression on the Paciilc
coast. As a consequence, some small mis
sionary stations had necessarily been
abandoned, and the missionaries had
returned to : Eastern fields of labor.
Some of their places had been filled, yet in
many respects the work had been carried on
only by the exercise of great deprivation.
Nevertheless the number of communicants
had increased largely. New towns were
springing up all over the territory, and it
was almost impossible to meet the demands
for the establishment of chapels. Bishop
Walker, of North Dakota, spoke of the mar
velous growth of population in that country.
He said the white population was intelligent,
refined aud progressive. Two thousand
' school houses had been built, more than iv
j fifteen other states of the Union, and eleven
, Episcopal churches bad been built during the
i past three years. The bishop spoke of the
' lamentable condition of the Indians in Turtle
j mountain, who were continually on the verge
of starvation. He intended to make a per
sonal appeal to the governor for the proper
} care of these people. The feeling of the
i white people was not very kind towards
| them, still, the speaker said, he bad found an
I Imperative need of missionary work among
: them, and he asked for aid for the church to

A Lively Contest* .
Louisville, Oct. — The feverish and ex
citing congressional contest waged in this
disirict for the past three months against
Albert S. Willis for the appointment of a Re
publican postmaster at Louisville, by the
Courier Journal and Times, representing the
Democracy of the city and county, terminated
to-night by the defeat of Willis by A.J.
Caruth. The contest has been very bitter,
religion and personalities being dragged into
the campaign. The Democratic primary to
day resulted in a sweeping victory for Caruth,
every ward in the city going for him. Willis
lost the precinct in which he lived, as well as
the ward. Ctiruth's majority will be 1,200 in
the city, while the county is very close. Wil
lis' friends made a strong effort to elect him,
and it is said $50,000 was "expended in bis in
terest, and $25,000 was spent in buying
votes for him. The city is wild to-ni<rht over
the result. - Mr. Caruth was serenaded at 10
o'clock by thd Democracy of Louisville.

The Chicago Anarchists.
Chicago, Oct. 9.— As the concluding
scenes of the great trial of the anarchists
approached a close more interest was taken,
and the suppressed excitement became more |
marked. Hundreds and hundreds of people j
wended their way toward the criminal court I
building, each one desirous of listening to
the conclusion of the speech of Anarchist
Parsons, and with the expectation of hear
ing the death sentence pronounced. Par
sons resumed his speech as soon as court
was opened. He created something of a
sensation by declaring iv a very dramatic
and impressive manner that they had posi
tive proof that the bouib which created such
destruction at the Haymarket was thrown
by an agent of the New York capitalists
and monopolists, who sent the man here to
take this means of breaking up the eight
AS PKOOF OF HIS ASSERTION
that there was a great conspiracy on the
part of capital against labor Parsons
quoted the expressions of three senators ou
the floor of the United States senate in
which all agreed on the following theory:
There is a conspiracy to increase the value
of the dollar and decrease the value
of labor the world over. Parsons claimed
again that he and his colleagues were the
victims of this conspiracy. He asked:
Wbat are the real facts of tbe Haymarket
tragedy, your honor? Mayor Harrisou has
caused to be published his opinion as to the
matter of conjecture in the New York World,
which was copied into the Tribune, of this
city, and in which he said: "I do not believe
that there was any intent on the part of
Spies and those men to have bombs thrown
at the Haymarket. IfJ they had, why was
there but one thrown? It was as easy to
have bad a dozen or fifty, aud to
have them thrown. in all parr
of the city as to thrown oi •
and again, if it was intended to thre
bombs that night, the leaders would no<
have been there at all. but in my opinion,
like comuianders-in-chief, would have
BEEN IN A SAFE PLACE.
No, it can't be shown that there was any
intention on the part of those individuals to
have that act perpetrated at that particular
meeting." Now, your honor, this is the
mayor of Chicago. He is a sensible man;
he is in a position to know what he is talking
about: he ought to be able to form an intelli
gent opinion. I expect that the mayor knows
more about the methods by which this evi
dence and this testimony has been manu
factured. Your honor, there is too much at
stake to take anything for granted. Mayor
Harrison thinks so, and, your honor, too,
should not destroy seven lives as a species of
Parsons maintained that the American
group were justified in bearing arms, that
the constitution gave them that right, but
that question was not raised so far as Par
sons was concerned. It was not sought to
prove that lie was violating the law while a
member of this organization. Judge Mc-
Allister had held that the police could not
invade their meetings without legal process,
but the police in 1577 did break into the
Turner hall on Twelfth street during a
meeting of the furniture workers which was
being held aud killed one man, and Judge
McAllister said that if every policeman in
the crowd was killed those participating in
the meeting could not be held responsible.
Were Parsons and his friends then to be
blamed because they
FOLLOWED JUDGE M'ALLISTER'S ADVICE
as cotained in this decision, which meant
that-the American croup could bear arms?
Why then was this construed as illegal,
when an eminent judge said it was accord
ing to constitutional law? About this time
Parsons asked to be allowed a recess, prom
ising to finish up this evening. The re
quest was denied. The court said there
seemed to be uo good reason for granting
repeated adjournments to listen to disser
tations on political economy and readings
from newspapers. He had intended to
have only one session. Parsons said his
condition was not as good as it had been
once and he felt exhausted. He was told
to go on and no limit as to time would be
placed on him. Parsons resumed, but
though at times dramatic, his speech was
in the main purely argumentative. Many
got up and wefft out for lunch, but the
court and Parsons had to stay. Most of the
time, after 1 o'clock, when both Parsons
and every one in the court room,
except the judge, was hunsrry and
tired out and anxious for a recess,
the speech was wearisome in the extreme.
Tbe monotony was relieved once in a while
by a remark which revived the interest. He
waked up every policeman in the room by
saying that a man's standing on the force
depended on his clubbing and clubbing con
stantly. His motto was, "Hit everything
in sight" if he would have preferment.
When he had finished speaking from his
notes, Parsons entered upon an account of
what he knew about the Haymarket meet
ing, and of his movements immediately
afterward up to the time when he surrend
ered himself in court. When he began
this portion of his speech he paced up and
down the limited space around the table on
which were his notes. He said
HE HAD SURRENDERED HIMSELF,
willing to meet a fair trial along with the
other defendants, knowing himself to be in
nocent. In relating how he met Capt.
Black in front of the court room, Parsous
placed his hand affectionately on
Capt Black's shoulder and spoke
in a gentler voice. He concluded, holding
up his head proudly: "Even now I have
nothing to regret." He had spoken con
tinuously five hours and forty minutes, and
he sank into his seat exhausted. Judge
Gary was about to pronounce sentence
when Capt. Black desired that a motion iv
arrest of judgment should be entered, Mr.
Grinnell having assured him that no merely
technical matters should interfere with the
defendant's rights. The court then pro
ceeded to execute the solemn duty devolv
ing upon him. In brief but impressive
words, and in tones which at any time
would have commanded respectful atten
tion, the judge gave fitting expression to
the judgment of the court. His face
worked convulsively when he began, and
when he reached the word "hanged," he
faltered, and could with difficulty utter
"till-you-are-dead." The last words were

Judge Gary spoke as ..follows to the de
I am quite well aware that what you have
6aid, although addressed to me, has been said
to the world, yet nothing has been said which
weakens the force of tho proof, or the con
clusions therefrom, upon which the verdict

know that if the verdict stands it must be
executed. The reasons why it shall stand 1

any power of expression for your undappy
condition, and for the terrible events that
have brought it about. I shall address to
you neither reproaches nor exhortation.
What I shall say sha'l be in the faint hope
that a few words from a place where the peo
ple of the State of Illinois bave delegated
the authority to declare the penalty of a vio

I casion so solemn and awful as this, may

all who are so banded together are guilty of
any murder that is committed in pursuance
of such advice. The people of this country

never consent that by violence and murder
these institutions snail be broken down; their

When the matter was decided the prisoners
arose and began slowly to walk out of the
court room with the bailiff who had them
in charge. The prisoners, who had
turned to listen to the sentence with added
pallor, exhibited no other emotion on hear
ing the fatal words. As they arose Mrs.
Parsons came up and kissed her husband.
Mrs. Ames also kissed Parsons on the
cheek. The relatives of the other defend
ants wrung their hands, but none of tha
women shed a tear. They aimed to cheer
up the condemned men by a show of forti

and the first to begin with matters in such
shape that the business of the convention
can at once be " taken up and carried

was that each member should be fully ac
quainted with the several subjects when
brought up for discussion. The committee

pamphlets, etc., including Mr. Powderly's
address, and distributing portions of them
to the committees charged with the duty oi
considering the subjects of which the re
spective portions treated. Of the commit
