JOHN W POTTIW.
Friday, Dkckmbkr 1HH.
A fruit fcaraee.
The tni'on is opposed to the psrk rom
mlssionrr system as propseJ ky the Rock
Inland Improvement association and
flitch it one of Die fiatures of all flrat
cltu city jroTerniiictiH Tbis li consistent
with toe niorniiiif paper s course toward all
matters of silvanceincut and public wul
fare. But wlien It attempts to consis
U'Otly tiplsin Aid. Hampton's Incon
sistency with reference to this and many
otLet messurrs before the council. It
undertakes things the magnitude of wtlch
will swamp U b. fore It Is accomplished.
Alderman llimitn is chairman of the
com mil tee on ordinances, and It ia bis
duty to report nil actions of the commit-
tte to the council.
Vry true, hut where in parliamentary
tactics docs it provide that be must com
promise Lis position by moving theadop
lion of an ordinance or resolution that be
dors not austslo and Ik-1 Wyes would
be wron.r Where under the shin
in canopy or rtoaven is the ex.
cuss for hi moving that the council
do one lliinit while be aiils ly bis Tote
and oibi raise, to have It do the very op
poaite: bat ue is mi ti mn to a
well regulated city Rovernm.-ot, and what
use to a community Is a paper that will
attempt to sustain suck a man? nut
bear what the Cnio says of the park
The plan proposed w.is not a t'eoil
one. It made one man autocrat of I'd
Ion niuare and another man antorrat of
Frank, in square, clothiutf them with po
lice power, and making them a board
that could rtiwnd sucb money aa the
council appropriated accordion to their
own individual notions. The aquare can
not he in better bands than those of the
people's own rrprtaentativrs.
This entire statement revests as much
of the l.inranre toward the real intent
and purpmc of the park commissioner
ordinance, as the ('! shows toward
Ore depigment Improvements and to
other n. 'mures looking to the promotion
of the lt interests of the city. The or
dinance did not contemplate the making
of "autocrats" of cither )uare, and tbe
'"i s assertion tint such was tbe case,
Is aa insutt to the citizens. who
proponed t'ie !:in and to the Improve
metit association as wtll. The aim of
the promoters of the commissioner sys
tem was to lw:e the parks in the bands
of men who would Ik- servants of the
council, who would jx-rform their duties
Kratuilioiisly, aud who Would have no
opportunity for fraud aa thu t'n'.m In
timates, all as their .'counts would
be audited and approved by the council
before being allowed. Tin; simple pur
pose was to place our public parks In tbe
bands of uiea who can t'Vo the matter
"o;w time than the aldermen can. Lv
utf so many other puMic duties to per
furni, the i.'eire b-jiiii to aid the council
In besutif vinir tint city und prom it in g Its
best Interests. Ami there Is not a mcniher
of tbe common council that does not o
understand it . If the plun works sue

Most of the Money Stolen from the
Government, bat Leedom Mulch ted In
1O.OO0 Too Much Love for Gambling
and Woman the Cause of the Crime
Details of the Crookedness.
Washixotox CiTT, Deo. ft C E. Silcott,
cashier of the sergeant-at-arms' office of the
last congress, is an embezzler in the amount
of about S2,000, $72,000 of which is govern
ment money. He has a bond filed for $50,000,
with good security, so the government will
not suffer so severely as individuals. The
;hief sufferer will be tbe sergeant-at-arms of
the last house J. P. Ixedom who loses
) 10,000 cash and is held responsible for the
ihortage of Silcott above the amount which
nay be recovered from bis bondsmen. SU
;ott ia supposed to be in Canada.
A Little Cray-Headed Raaral.
Tbe announcement of tbe defalcation cre
itcd a sensation in the hous- Silcott was
vell-known to at least 100 of tbe old mem-M-ra.
His little, stooping figure and bis gray
lead were familiar to every one w ho bad oo
wsion to go to the office of the sergeant -at-u-ms
to draw money in the last congress.
Many of tbe new members had become ao
t uainted with him during the past summer.
He was, to all appearances, a man of good
habits, steady and trustworthy. Among bis
people in Ohio he bad lortie a good reputa
tion. A Statement from Leedom.
Mr. leedom seems to take the matter qui
rt ly and with some fortitude, although he
lold the newia?r interviewers who crowd
ed about him that he was in no condition to
talk. "All of the money has been drawn
kin. Nov. 27," he said to a United Press
reporter as he sat in the back room of his
little office, gaziug at the stream of anxious
congreNKmen who poured in at the door to look
at the big empty safe, and tossk questions
ond offer s mpathy. "We did not suspect
anj-lhin wroug until 4:30 p. m. yesterday,"
he continued, "and we had no absolute
knowledge of the extent of tbe defalcation,
until thu morning just lief ore I made the re
Hrt of it to tbe house. Silcott went to New
York Saturday, telling me that he had to
collect Siime niouey. Sunday night lie tele-p-aphad
to his wife that he would be back
Monday night. We did not know what bad
liPH'0ed to him when he did not appear,
but we thought that he bad been killed.
The Theft Discovered.
'We never suspected the truth until his
absence became prolonged, when w began
to invest ignte. We did not believe the worst
until we had gone to the treasury aa a last
resort, hoping tlutt be had not drawn the
money. There we found that he had drawn
fi:3.i0 tliu Wednesday, apparently with
tbe iutention of carrying it aaray. Then I
determined to report the matter immediate
ly to the house and await its action. Tbe
thortage la $Tl,9si I had $10,UU0 in the
safe, aud Silcott had a like amount up to
Saturday. That is all gone. I suppose Sil
cott has it with him In Canada. "
Silcott came from Ycungstown, O., where
he was a merchant for many years. His
liond is f.Su.KO and bis bondsmen, fifteen in
bumlier, are all residents of Omo, and in the
vicinity where he live-l The only names
which Mr. I.eed.,m could rememlier among
them wore thoeo of W. A. Blair, William
McCornitck. J. T. Willsnn, It. II. Ellison and
Samuel Drennan. The Isjnd is in Mr.
Leedimi's private ssfo, out west. Mr. Leedom
says that the bondsmen are all good men.
In answer to a question als.ut Silcott's
habits. Mr. Isiom said: "He seemed to
have no more than the ordinary man's share
of vices. He was one of the most economical
nion I have ever known. I used to quarrel
with him about his wearing such cheap
KnVrt on the Thiers Family.
Silcott has been cashier for about six years.
He handled about $5,(Xi0.iYii a year. He has
a married sou aud two little daughters, Mrs
Silcott is distracte-L Silcott's eon, a young
man who had r.ccntly married, is employed
ill the document-room of the house. He was
at his work as nsual yesterday morning when
Informed of his father's disappearance. The
announcement was the first intimation that
Silcott had that nun hing was wrong with
his father, and the prT-et on him startled his
follow clerks, lie fell tu tbe floor in a faint,
and then was attacked with a tit, from which
be did not recover for aooie time. He was
taken to bis borne when he regained con-sciuu-'ness.
' 11 r-ported to the House.
Mr. Leedom reported the embezzlement to
the bouse yeatnrday, and a committew was
appointed to investigate the matter. The
letter from Leedom was not received by the
representatives wtth any manifestation of
feeling beyond complete surprise. The mern
bers seemed tbunderstrucii. Humors of Sil
cott's crime bad been whispered about among
the niumbers, but it ha.1 not become gener
ally known, and tbe announcement of the
magnitude of the deficiency had even a more
startling effect than tbe announcement of
the crime itself.
A Gambler and Kake.
While Silcott's reputation for h onesty had
never been brought into question in any of
his official transactions, it was knowm that
he was spending a larger amount of money
than he could afford to spend on the sal
ary be r-ceived. but this, wis explained in the
minds of those who thought anything about
tbe matter by t lie belief that Silcott's horse
racing ventures laid lieen successful He was
a frequenter of race tracks and pool rooms
and had gained a reputation as a heavy bet
ter. Although Silcott's family live in this
city he did not aeem to make any effort to
disguise his relations with a woman known
aa Louise Barrett whom be had met at a
house of ill-fame here. On this woman be
lavished all sorts of luxuries, and sbs is
believed to have beon tbe principal causa of
his disgrace. Tbe Barrett woman cannot be
found, and it is believed that she is with
Silcott. She is a French-Canadian and has
been living in Washington for three years
Silcott recently took her from tbe house of
ill-fame where tbey had met, and established
her in a very respectable locality.
Some More llevelopmenta Possible.
Inquiry at the banks ia this city where
Silcott bad deTMsnra shows that he hiss over
drawn his accounts, and there are reports
that a large amount of his paper ia out.
These reports and like ones are being circu
lated about the capitol, but it cannot be
ascertaiued definitely whether t hey are true
or not. The fact that Governor Campbell, of
Ohio, is said to Le on tbe bond of Silcott has
excited some comment here. Tbe corre
spondent of a western paper sent out yester
day afternoon a dispatch stating that it waa
believed that Mr. Campbell could furnish
some interesting corroborative detail In re
gard to Siloott s peculations.
The Government !o Loarr.
Tbe government will not be a loeer try the
defalcation of Siloott. His sureties and those
of Mr. Leedom will be obliged to anakv up
the amount of government money taken by
him The sergeant-at-arms carried on a reg
ular banking business through his otBce.and
many of the members had deposits there
outside of their accounts with the govern
ment, preferring to trust to the honesty of
the sergoant-at-arms because of tbe conven
ience Just how much money was deposited
to these private accounts Is not known. '
