Kansas City, Mo., July 30. A war rant hi s l.'f-cu issued for lie arrest of llwnrd li. Swazey, charged with in tent to defraud by selling to the ThirJ naln nal bank of Springfield, Mass., n mortgage of $7,2VI on 2iil heed of cat tle owned by J. If. Kenney, of llemp hill county, Texas. It is alleged that Swazey represented that the mortgage was a first lien, whereas it wi.s a sec ond lien. If true, the operation is dentieal with those, pursued by tirant (iillett, the Kansas nliineer. who mort gaged cattle to the amount of over a million dollars, (iillett crossed to old Mexico, where he has since resided. According to a n-mirt. from the of fice of the Hunkers' end Cattlemen's J'roteetive association, the Swazey's ir- ularitics approximate $70,000. Un til the time ct its financial collapse, thre? months ago, Mr. Swaey was a niemtr of the local commission firm of l.add, 1'enny & Swazey. The firm did a general cattle commission busi- ss at the stock yards.

At the time of the failure of the cattle firm of I.add, Penny t Swazey it was impossible to din-over the itincunt involved, especially as the impnuv did business over such wide range of country. Three days af terward inquiries began fo come in and simultaneous reports of the men tal, as well as the physical collapse of the itinior member of tV' firm. Thomas 1.. 1.1 (Id, M'nior member of the 1irin. makes the folkwing state menl : I do not know the present where' aborts of Mr. Swazey, but have bee informed, upon what seems to be relist ble authority, that he has left lor South America. If it is true, 1 can not account for his departure. 1 do not beiieve Mr. Swazey has done anythin criminal. As far as we knew at prcs cut his books nrp all straight, and we have no reason to suspect, that he has been in any way dishonest with the firm. Mr. Swaziv was the financial man t-f the firm, lie handled nil the papc and had exclusive control of that de partment of the linn's business.

Rev. L. S. Foster, who established. and who, with his good wife, is so suc cessfully conducting the ltaptist Or phanage at Jackson, thus indicates the basis of its support in the annual edi tion of the Orphanage Gem: We have entered upon this work in entire dependence upon voluntary contribution!. We have no invested fund as an endow ment to yield an income for expenses, and do not wish such an endowment. We have nothing to say ogaintt an endowment. It is a good thing to, have an endowment for our colleges, mission boards and such things. But we profer, in the orphanage work, to be entirely and directly dependent upon God for all supplies of every sort. For Hi promises are our endowment, and they are infinitely better than the promises of man. Pure religion and undented before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. "He that bath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given He will pay him again." "A father of the fatherless is God in his boly habitation." "Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; let thy widows trust in me." "blessed is he that cousideretb the poor; the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed U(on the earth, and thou will not deliver him unto bis enemies." "The silver and gold is mine, saith ths Lord of hosts." Our endowment is found in these divine promises, and we do not wish any endow ment which would prevent us from relying directly and implicitly upon God's Word. Relying upon those, I have entered upon this work for the Lord, and I have found it to be true that, "The Lord is not slack concerning His promises, as some men count slackness." 1 have always and everywhere given full information iu reference to our work, but have never made a direct appeal for help. In addition to the promises quoted, Hrothcr Foster has for his encourage ment the successful experience of sev eral orphanages established and sus tained on the same principle. Midler's Orphanage at llristol, England, shel tered and prepared for useful lives thousands of children. It has never made a direct appeal for help. Thorn well Orphanage at Clinton, S. C, com menced its work without a dollar. The Protestant Orphan Asylum at Natchez, has been in operation more than four score years. It has never had an en dowmcnt fund, but its doors have never been closed. A Serious f.'hnrge.

London, July 31.--Perhaps in no country was the ufws of King Hum bert's assassination received with tletper sympathy and greater horror than in Great Britain. For the last few years, and more especially for the h.st few months, during the South Af rican war, th Italian ministers, re flecting the attitude of the throne, hnve shown unswerving friendship for Great Britain, even when the rest of Europe was inveighing against En gland and her policy. Queen Victoria, ntturr-Uy, was hor rilied nt Ihe receipt of the news. She Immediately telegraphed her condo lences to Queen Marsherita. It is stated in official circles that the recent release of Sipido, the assailant of Ihe prince of Wales, as he wns passing through Belgium, has been followed by an enormous circulation of anarchist literature advocating regicide. It is thought exceedingly likely thnt the assassination of King Humbert Is directly traceable to mis placed leniency.
