How the Alliance Out There Proposes to
Kaxsas Citv, Mo., Aug. 3. A special
from Anthony, Ks., to The Journal says,:
Considerable excitement has been oc
casioned over the abduction of Anion
Farmer, Alliance member of the board of
kee Avenue Slate bank. Iminediately J county commissioner, and the attempted
they deposited checks, drafts, etc. which
have siuce been found to be fraudulent
and later drew out t he cash. By collusion
with liartels the great run of the paper
was dumped on the Central Trust Savings
Couldn't riay Their Game Out.
The system that was developed was the
work of months. The teller, in the al
sence of the cashier, certified all pajer,
and the forged drafts, checks, etc., were
only deposited when the higher officials
of the bank were out. The same system
was played on the Globe National, it is
tid, although Vice President Stone was
not in the city yesterday to affirm or deny
the statement. It is now learned that the
plotters intended to pull all the batiks
they had deposited money with into their
net and t heu break up and clear out. How
ever that may be the paper came to protest
too soon to admit of more extended fraud,
and the ring was brought up with around
THE BANKS LOSE NOTHING.
Vourhrn for the Young Men Pay
leflcit Nichols Confesses.
The amount the Central Trust and
Savings bank found itself short was near
ly "0,00(1. The bank officials had taken
every precaution to secure themselves, for
while they had been compelled to accept
the forged paper of their customeis
they were suspicious early in the game.
When the end came Allen C. Fuller,
who is reported tobe worth over $10,000,000,
and Dr. Bumside, his brother-in law. bot h
of whom had implicit confidence in the
voung men, paid all the shortage and none
of the banks is out one cent.
How They ITsed Nichols.
Nichols' confession shows that Burnside
and Forbes employed him for the specific
purpose of acting as a go-between be
tween the banks and the bank note com
pany. Nichols was given money with
which to wine, dine, clothe and pay any
Other bill that Bartel desired, as compen
sation for keeping him posted on the
amounts required to meet their clearings
daily, for certifj ing checks in the absence
ot the cashier, and for making deposits for
them with fictitious names whenever re
quired. Kept Qne WatcU on the Hank.
A nutub Gf messenger boys were con
stantly employed to watch the bank for
momentary absences of the cashier in or
der to give opportunities for presenting
these fraudulent checks to Bartels, in or
der that they might be passed to the credit
of the company, and go through before
Ihe cashier could learn of them. Bartels
was always ready with a certified check
to exchange for the deposit as soon as it
Did lluniuMs 1th a Rush.
These ceitified checks were taken as fast
as cabs could crry them totheGlobe.First
National or other banks, as needed to pro
tect checks issued on them. In the same
way certified checks from other bank
weregiveu the Central Trust and Savings
bank always with some display forpffect.
Often large sums of money were deposited,
as has siuoe been learned, for effect.
Inquest on the Homestead Affair.
Pittsburg, Aug. S. The inquest as to
the killing of the Pinkerton detectives
and a steel worker at the Homestead riot
July 6 was contiuued at the office of Coro
ner McDowell yesterday and after a score
of witnesses had been examined another
adjournment -was ordered. Since the
arrest of Captain Coon and C. W. 'Mans
field, who testified to seeing the workmen
shoot at the Piukertons in their barges,
the witnesses subpoenaed have grown
wary, and while all .admit seeing or hear
imz shootin g, none will swear who the
guilty parties are.

abduction of Alex, Terrill, a Republican
member of the board. Four or five masked
men called Farmer out of bed just before
dawn Monday morning, took him into-a
carriage and that was the last seen of him.
Commissioner Terrill's would-be abduc
tors, five in minilter. called at. his home in
the west part of the county about 11 o'clock J
Sunday night and made a forcible en
trance. Luckily Terrill was in Harper
and only his wife aud two small children
were at home. .
Want the Courts To Belefled.
The cause is simply due to the fact that
the boanl of commissioners was to have
met Monday to make a levy for the
paymeut of the judgment on the old Har
per couuty bonds, requested by the man
damus issued by t he supreme court two
weeks ago. The better class of Harper
county tax payers has advised the board
to make the levy, but the Ailiance men
and leaders of the People's party are iu
favor of ignoring the mandamus, ami de
mand that the commissioners refuse to
make the levy, or resign.

She Hashes Vitriol In the race of Her
DCBLIX, Ga., Aug. 3. Daisey Johnson, a
prepossessing young woman, was sitting in
one of the tents at the Methodist camp
meeting at l,otbair, Montgomery county,
Monday, conversing with several friends,
when Winnie Davis, another good-looking
woman, appearedand without any warning
dashed the contents of abottle containing
vitriol in Miss Johnson's face. Miss Johu-
son gave a piercing scream and liegan run
ning around t he crowded camp ground.
Will Re IHnfigured for Life.
Miss Davis stood by watching her vic
tim suffer until a large crowd cat hered.
Four doctors are doing everything pos
sible to lessen the young woman's suffer
ing. Her features are horribly disfigured.
Both girls claimed the same admirer, and
because the young lover paid his respects
more frequently to Miss Johnson Miss
Davis became offended. Miss Davis has
disappeared but will be arrested. Both
girls belong to ncn families.
The Meteor Couldn't Win.
LoNDOX, Aug. 3. The Cowes yacht race
yesterday was little better thau a farce.
r.very effort was made to allow the. Em
peror imam's .Meteor, nee Thistle, to
win. The Iverna, which has frequently
proved her superiority in contests with the
Meteor, withdrew from the race. . The
L'Ksperauce, the next fleetest of the lot,
was run ashore in a harmless spot a pure
accident of course. In spite of everything
the imperial yacht failed to get sufficient
lead over her lagging rivals to overcome
the time allowance and get the prize.
