New York, May 10.—The police of
this city say that the total sum in
volved in a swindle of which. Dr.
Heglesburg, now under arrest in Los
Angeles, Cal., is accused, will reach
$100,0)0. Dr. Ilegelsluirg was presi
dent of the "Investors' Guaranty ami
Trust coinpany-," with offices in this
city. It is alleged that the company
did a "blind pool".business in stocks.
About Aprii 20 Inst patrons of the
company who called at its offices found
t.ne doors locked and no information
was obtainable as to the.whereabouts
of the members of the concern. Ernest
S. May, keeper of a restaurant, made
specific compla i:t that he had invested
?S,100 with the concern and that he be
lieved that he had been swindled.
Hegelsburg was thought to have start
ed for New Mexico. The police at El
l'aso were telegraphed to and the po
lice throughout the State of California
were notified. Capt. McOluskey sent a
telegram to Chief of I'olice Glasser at
Los Angeles to hold Hegelsburg until
requisition papers were completed.
Two days before the company's of
fices were closed some of Hegelsburg's
customers received from him a type
written circular dated at Newark, N.
,T., saying that disaster had overtaken
him. He attributed it to the panicky
rrarket and said he had destroyed the
books and asked for a few months in
which to make everything square. He
confessed that he alone constituted the
whole company. The letter continued:
"I was a fool to tliiuk I could beat
the market and make a fortuiie for
you and me. but you will hardly be
more successful. You lose only a few
dt liars while 1 lose my very existense."
Capt. MeCluskey said a man named
Young, who was a friend of May, the
rostaurautkeeper, had also been, in
duced to invest money in Hegelsburg's
concern, and that May and Young had
lost about $30,000 between theiu.
Some Point* Discovered by the Hel

Adrian de Gerlach, chief of the Bel

stated that the so-called Hughes bay is
the entrance to the channel which
separates Graham Laud from the
group of Islands \fliich explorers called
Palmer's archipelago. I'1. 12 the ex
pedition began a new-journey south

of 7.W meters through the ice. This
passageway was finished in February.

northward. Lieut. De Gerlach praises
the conduct of all the members of tlie

Havana. May 10—The continued ab

astonishes even the members of the
sanitary department. Resident phys

since American occupation have made
it possible that the disease may be
checked for a short time, and look tor

'practitioners, however, believe that
some cases will develop before June.

Report of the Beef Court-'-Inpuiry
Washington,' Maj v,—JBy direptlQn'of
the president, who approves the find

and- findings of (lie military court ap
pointed to Investigate the charges
made by Maj. Gen/ Miles, command
ing the army, that the beef supplied
the army during, the war with Spain
was unfit for the use of the troops.
The most important features of the
Findings are that the general's alle
gations that the refrigerated beef was
treated with chemicals were not es
tablished that his allegations concern
ing the canned fresh or canned roast
beef were sustained as to its unsuita
bility for food as used on tlie trans
ports and as a long continued field ra

opinion that the food was unfit cen

Gtfh. Eagan) for the too extensive
purchases of the canned beef as an
untried ration censure of Col. Mans,
of Gen. Miles' staff and, finally, that
the packers were not at fault and the
meat supplied to the army was of
the same quality as that supplied to
the trade generally, and the recom
mendation is made that
No Farther Proceedings
be taken in the premises. The con
clusion of the court adverse to further
proceedings, based upon the charges,
is. as follows:
"It has been developed in the course
of the inquiry, as recited in this re
port, that in some instances some indi
viduals failed to perform their full
duty or to observe the proprieties
which dignify high military command,
but the court is of the opinion that t\ie
mere statement in the official report of
the facts developed meets the ends
of discipline and that the interests of
tlie service will be best served if
further proceedings be not taken."
There is more or less criticism of
Gen. Miles in various parts of the re
port. Probably the most direct in
stance is the one which states that be
yond the criticism of officers found
elsewhere in the report:
"The court finds that against none of
the officers commanding corps, divis
ions. brigades and regiments and their
staff officers should a charge of guilt
be brought. The court also finds that
the major general, commanding the
army, had no sufficient justification for
alleging that the refrigerated beef was
embalmed or was unfit for issue to
troops. It also finds that he

The censure of Col. Maus, Inspector

upon his failure to call attention to
