"The department of state at Wash

American consul general at Barcelona,

t Of wiring to persons in the United
States respecting the imprisonment of
i a- relative and the guardianship of a
child. ' - ', '
; Tho con3ul general states that the
alleged prisoner generally describes
himself as a political prisoner from
Cuba; he is at the jpoint of death and
has but one friend the prison priest
through whose ' good offices he is en
abled to smuggle an occasional letter
out of .the prison ort. :

. Othen Letter Follow,
j The above is generally the first Iet-
ter of the series. It is quickly fo!
I lowed by another in which the pris
j oner pathetically states that his
. strength is rapidly failing and tfie end
J is near. He beseeches his deardis
v tant relative to assume the trust and
j be a loving father to the darling daugh-
ter. The third letter is from the' good
; priest himself, who in brief, touching
j terms, and hopelessly bad English, an-
counc 3 the death of the unhappy
; prisoner; the . good priest adds that
the darling daughter is under his care.
; He Is ready to put his promise into
execution and start for the Unite !
States as soon as he shall have re-
ceived the necessary funds from th3
distant relative. The good priest fre-
quently incloses with his letter a
lbogu3 newspaper clipping announcing
1 the death in prison at Barcelona of the
famous Cuban patriot, (sometimes
.-called Augustln LaCe.ite); the news
paper rctlco also speaks cunningly of

It is a simple scheme, but presented
In each a plausible way that almost

but as he thinks , of doing this bis at
tention Is taken by the warning in the
prisoner's letter beseeching him not to
mention the matter to any living soul
lest tho secret. of the valise .and, tho
hidden receptacle be indiscreetly :ter
trayed. . . ?
.-The valise, after all, with Its con
cealed certificate of deposit, 'is the
key to the situation and possession
must bo taken of it before v&nythlng
can be done or said. This (so. ijtiAning
ly set forth by the prisoner)' Is very
evident to the distant relative,' and no
he quite, frequently preserves- the se
cret intact, and instead of consulting
a -lawyer or writing to the American
consul general at Barcelona he quickly
sends a draft fofthes aum demanded to
the good priest and ' $yr alts results. ,Of
course he' waits lnvain, and .thejpbor,
dead prisoner and" the good jtffest and

time pap out of his. life forever, lav

For nearly 20 : years these same
knaves; have been practicing their
swindle, and it Is needless to suggst
that they are ' very carefully organ
ized; they have confederates not oniy
In" the United States but in most other
countries. The confederates in ques
tion select a man and find outfall they
can about him; they get hold of fam
ily names, family origin. nd family
characteristics. , This irfjprmation la
transmitted to the rascils- in Spain,
and letters are at once":;vritten to the
prospective vicim. The scheme Is pre
sented end develope'd tif a very plausi
ble way and ahy of o'ur fellow-coui-trymen;

" Every effort has been made by the
department of state and Its represen
tatives1' m Spain to unmask these
scoundrels and bring them to justice,
and the Spanish authorities have also
"been" active and several members of
the gang have been apprehended and
held for trial, but so far no convic
tions have resulted, owing probably
to the peculiarity of the Spanish law
referred to in the report of the consul
general at Barcelona.

Advtitlsirtg as a part. of the work of
the church was the' ubjectof a most
intereating illustrated aadcess by Dr.
Itf roy M. Coffman at the First Presbyr
feriafli church in Davenport Dr. Coff
man said that ample authority for
church advertising was to ftp', found
in tbxld and familiar te "Go ys
into ail the world and preacft the gos
pel to every creature." In every city,
he said, right at home, it was not to
be d guMed that there were thousands
of people to whom the gospel was not
bJing preached, and many churches
reaching out by means of adver
rtfg.to bring larger numbers of peo
under the influence of the truth
and the Word, ' .
several jojms ox aavertismg were
pientioned. FLftst of these, as Dr. Cotf-
man listed - them, was printers' ink.
He had & couple of hundred illustra
tions, mounted on large sheets of card
board,, to show wnatj.vaf lous churches
had been doing in. this line. Adver
tising jn the newspapers and" by. means
of striking cards, handbills and posters
weres helping in many cities to put be
forejthe'pubilc t&te fact that there is a
welcome and a message to be found
in : the-curches. Then there were
forms Jo service that helped advertise
a church, and' again the personality of
the preacher, and his workers and
their methods. Some of the most ec
centric and sensational of the preach
ers were also the most effective.
