C)COOOOOCOCOOOOOOOOCOOOOOCO WHILE MONEY LASTED. Bert Waite, 18 Years Old, Had a High Old Time. San Francisco, Oct. 12. Bert "Waite, IS years old, who was arrested at Upper Lake on Wednesday, charged with forg ery, by the president of the First Na tional bank of Berkeley, has confessed to having robbed the United States Ex press company at Ravenna, O. Early in August last, Waite, who was acting as agent of the express company at Ravenna, absconded with over $6,000 in money and bank notes. Three days be fore his departure he withheld from de livery every package of value that came through his oSice. When he thought he had enough he took the train for -the west, and has since been the prey of sharpers. Besides $800 in cash, Waite took with him a package of $7,000 in $5 currency notes of the Second National bank of Ravenna, consigned to that institution by the treasury department at Washing ton. The bills were in sheets, and lacked the signatures of the president and cashier of the bank. He also took a money order book of the express com pany, upon which he has since raised $200 by forgery. He arrived here on September 14, and immediately began a career of dissipation. As his funds de creased he moved to Berkeley, where with his remaining capital he became a hail fellow with the university students. The supply finally gave out, and he was obliged to raise money on his book of expiess orders. One of these forged or ders came back to the First National bank and led to his arrest.

St Louis, Oct. 12. Notwithstanding the late session held last night the dele gates to the ninety-first annual meeting of the American board of commissioners for foreign missions, which is being held in Pilgrim Congregational church, were on hand early. After the usual devotional services, the regular business of the meeting was resumed. Mr. Peter Cuchman Jones, of Honolu lu, who last night brought greetings from the Hawaiian Evangelical associa tion and gave a check for $'.,000 contri buted for the work of the American board made an additional pledge of $3, 000 on behalf of the friends of the work in those islands. Rev. DeWitt S. Clark, D. D., of Salem, Mass., in behalf of the committee on "Eleven missions" under the care of the Rev. Judson Smith, D. D., foreign sec retary, reported in brief, as follows: "The three missions of the board in Africa, Zulu east and west Central Af rica sent back to us most encouraging reports. South China.Shansi, Foo Chow and North China, notwithstanding the disturbed state of the empire during the past season have been prosecuting their labors with excellent results. "Constantly increasing gams may be anticipated in Hong Kong and Canton through the intelligent efforts of Chris tian Chinese returning from America. That their contributions towards this work from their fellow countrymen here much exceed the appropriations of the board, is a pleasing proof of their sin cere interest in it. The superintendence by our missionaries has been most dis creet and effective. "Reference in this as in other reports, are made to the splendid aid of the Christian Endeavor society." Reference to the work in the missions of western and central Turkey, and the Pacific islands was made and progress shown. Dr. Clark in closing said: "In reading the reports of these sev eral missions, under the special care of Secretary Smith, we are impressed with, and bear glad witness to the ability and fidelity of their administration. Intri cate and troublesome questions ever rising because of war and famine and pestilence; pressing emergencies, racial prejudices, rival organizations, personal misunderstandings, limited funds these seem to have been wisely and happiiy adjusted. The board may look forward with renewed hope to larger and more conspicuous accomplishments in the coming year." NEW CRAWFORD THEATER. Return Engagement: The Talk & Veronee Big Stock Co.

Bank President Will Pursue Schreiber Relentlessly. New Tork, Oct. 12. President Neid riter, of the Elizabethport Banking com pany, which has been systematically robbed, as alleged, by Wm. Schreiber, the missing young bookkeeper, is quoted by the press as saying: "I will spend the last cent of my private fortune to put that boy behind the bars. We'll never let up on him Our bank is in the Pinkerton combination; and we have set other detectives at work with promise of large rewards. "Personally, I think Schreiber is in Europe, and we shall soon catch him. His pronounced stammering and his dwarfish size will make him noticeable wherever he goes. Then, too, we have reason to believe he has only a small supply of money, which he will soon run through. "As for Mrs. Hart, whatever property she may have in the way of furniture, gowns, jewels and horses belongs by right and by law to us and we mean to have them. "People are amazed to find that the youngest employe of a bank, hardly more than a boy, could have looted a bank so thoroughly, stealing more than the entire capital stock and the surplus, Calumet (z) M uaiiing Powder NOT MADE BY THE TRUST. and I do not blame them. I acknowledge that the directors are partly to blame. One business-like examination of the bank would have discovered the steal at the beginning. "The whole steal was possible because of the construction of an old office and it was continued because of the marvel ous head for figures Schreiber had. It is the old, old story of a bank employe having access to both the books and the cash. When we moved into our new quarters in July I insisted on having the cash included in a separate iron-barred office, where Schreiber could get at neither the teller's department nor the vault. Since then Schreiber did not steal a cent. He could not get at it. When I demanded that Cashier Smith verity the books on various occasions he Ipt Schreiber handle one set of books. So quick was Schreiber at figures that he mentally added every item of his em bezzlement at the proper place, making the balance perfect from the figures he called out to Smith." WOULDN'T LEAVE. Not For a Salary of Forty Thousand a Year. New Tork, Oct. 12. Referring to a dispatch from San Francisco saying he had refused the presidency of the South ern Pacific company at J40.000 a year, Edwin Hawley said today: "I would not take $40,000 a year and leave New York. It is not true the place ha.i been offered to me anyway. I would not accept the presidency of the Southern Pacific. I would rather stay here. The matter of the presidency is in the hands of the monetary committee of which C. H. Tweed is chairman. The committee has not selected any one for the office. When it does it will report to the governing board. I have not an idea who will get the presidency." Mr. Hawley is now fourth vice presi dent of the Southern Pacific company and president of the Minneapolis & St. Louis and of the Iowa Central railroads as well as director in numerous other roads.
