What Chief Himons Hays About That
Iak A Tear's Work Making; and
Shoving; the Queer McRae's Denial.
"tVkst Supf.kior, Wis., Dec 84. "Chief
Portar is a little hard on us," said Chief
Fimons, of the Superior police department,
wipn shown an interview with the Chicago
officer, pnblinhed in yesterday's papers,
everely cenMiring the local force for blun
dering in the big counterfeiting case.
But much of what he said is deserved,
and I can easily appreciate his chagrin
for he told me that the case was one of
the most important on which he had ever
been engaged. I know he was very am
Ions to make a clean job of it and every
thing looked promising for carrying out
fcis plans until there was a leak here and
tAe matter got into the papers. I blame
dim, too, for telling ex-Captain Mcliae,
for he was warned not to do so, and but
for tat act I think there would have been
Chief Porter's Coup Spoiled.
The job planned by Chief Porter was
spoiled, but the alleged gang of counter
feiters in this city is very effectually broken
p nevertheless. It contained three prin
cipal metnliers, by whom all the actual
work was done. Of these Frank Mclean,
the leader, according to the police, is nnder
arrest. This is the man who is alleged to
kave made the molds and dies used in turn
ing out the bogus coins, and it was at a
place owned by him that they were fash
ioned. He is a blacksmith, and has been
In the employ of the Reading Coal com
ftany. He had also a shop at the steel
plant, near the works of the iron and steel
company, and there the money was made.
McLean was carefully shadowed all day
Thursday, and when orders were received
from Chicago to act, he was arrested and
the shop raided.
No. t to Tarn Mate's Evidence.
The second principal of the gang is not
yet arrested, but the police know where to
find Mm. He was the first one of the gang
located when the accidental discovery of
the counterfeiters was made. When drunk
k talked a little too freely, and when
fcaaled up told all he knew. The informa
tion from him revealed how extensive
were the ortemtions of the gang. He will
tern state's evidence when the case cornea
to trial, and for this reason his name is
withheld. In Mrlean's shop were, found
mixtures of block tin and babbit metal
aed for counterfeiting silver coins and a
copper alloy for Ihicii 1Q pieces. Pies
uid moulds for .V cnl pieces were also
taken. The evidence already in police pos
session, so say the police, is ample to con
vict the man under arrt.
HO. 3 GOT A FRIENDLY HINT.

McCarthy, the third of the gang, is the
twily one who can't lie accounted for in
fiupenor. lie received a hint of tho coming
trouble, and on Wednesday night took a
Sonth Shore train for East Saginaw, Mich.,
taking with him the dies for the manufac
ture of the dollars and the gold pieces. The
Oiicago men were warned of his depar. lire
mad route. It is probable that he has been
rreMted, but no definite word has yet beeu
received. McCart hy was a carpenter, but
' lilAle in known of hia history.
Bmg at Work a Whole Year.
The extent of the oiwrutions of the gan
Is revealed by tlin member who has weak
ened. According to his story, as told by
the police, the first of the coins was turned
out a year ago, and since that time they
have been manufactured in great quanti
ties. No attempt was ever made to puss
them in Superior, but this is about the
only western city that has escaped. The
police have in their possession, captured in
Thnraday night's raid, orders for the bogus
coin which w.ll implicate outsine parties
who have been engaged in shoving it.
Very few of the gold pieces were made.

Captain McKue yesterday for the first

AN IMPROVEMENT IN BLAINE.
Reports from the Patient Are Decidedly
Wafhington,Dcc.24. "Mr. Blaine shows
an itmrovenient over his condition of
Tester, ay," til Dr. Johnston to a reporter
for the United Press last evening. "When
I saw him at 4 p. m. he was feeling un
usually cheerful and everything seemed
favorable for a quiet night." Dr. John
ston's statement was confirmed l y a pff
Bonal v isit to the Hlaine residence!, where
the lights were burning brilliantly
throughout the house and the outward
bearing of the servants was of a more
cheerful nature than for a week past. In
quiry at the door as to Mr, Hlaine's condi
tion brought forth the respouse that he
seemed greatly improved.
Sleeps Like a Well Man.
At 11 :) o'clock last night Dr. W. W.
Johnston had just returned to his residence
from a visit to Mr. Blaine. WI found him
quite M well as at any time during the
day," said the doctor, in reply to the usual
question. ''You know that this morning
he was quite a good deal better than on
"How is his sleep, doctor?" was asked.
"He sleeps just as a well man does; it is
natural and he receives the usual benelit
that con es from restful slumber."

A rumor prevailed quite extensively yes
terday that members of Mr. Blaine's fam

to visit the sick man, but investigation
proves it to have been unfoundod.
Harter -Will Work During the Holidays
Washivgtos, Dee. 24. There is to be an
organixed effort in the house after the holi
day recess to bring about some sort of finan
cial legislation. It will probably take the
shape of t-n attempt to repeal the Sherman
law, undt r which the government is pur
chasing 54,000,000 ounces of silver a year.
The opponents of free coinage believe that
this law is daily menacing the securities of
the government and inevitably leading to
gigantic losses. Harter of Ohio, one of the
most pronounced champions of the repeal
of this la-v, will make it his special busi
ness dariug the recess to endeavor to mould
the public and congressional sentiment so
that favor iblc action may be token as soon
after recess as possible.
Frlrndu of Slver in the Senate.
For this reason he will not return to
Ohio to en joy the holiday festivities, but
will be found at various places throughout
the east w here he may be most useful in
advocating the n;ral of the law. On the
other hand the friends of silver are not
less active, and expect to see a free coinage
bill forging to the front before many days
of the new year have passed. Stewart said
only the other day that be expected a free
coinage bil would soon be called up for a
vote. His nmendinent to Hill's bill which
provides for the repeal of the Sherman act,
makes that measure practically a free coin

M'GLYNN MAKES HIS PEACE.
The Noted Recalcitrant Priest Has Bis
Washington, Dec. 24. The famous case
of Father McGlynn, of St. Stephen's
church, has finally been decided by the
restoration to him of authority to perform
his priestly f unctions. The settlement of
the case cai te within the scope of the
general power vested in Monsignor Satolli,
the papal legate, and the decision was pro
mulgated by him last night at the Roman
Catholic uni ersity, where he is stopping.
The 'l7n 'rocked Priest" Accepts.
Satolli sent a message to McGlynn stat
ing the terms upon which he would be "re-
f rocked," but what the terms are can not
be ascertained McGlynn accepted them,
however, and can now officiate in any
parish where he is assigned. The question
of restoring him to his old parish, St. Ste
phen's, of New York City, is to be consid
ered by Archbishop Oorngan.
