They have commenced manufacturing
candy in New England that is said to be
so strongly saturated with liquor that it

at all unlikely that those engaged in this

good trade in lowa, and thus be instru

between the now disconsolate nosegay
and the taffy of his younger years.
Tite St. Louis papers seem to think it
yet an open question as to which of the
two parties Jesse James belonged. This
is hardly fair. As the dead bandit was a
regular reader and correspondent of a
prominent Republican journal of Chi
cago, it is due to the stalwart press of
that city as well as to the truths of his
tory, that they should have, at least, the
benefit of all doubt in the case. Whether
Jesse James was in training with the
▼iew of M ah on i zing the hog-and-hominy
State has not as yet been developed.
The Pennsylvania revolt against the
bosses is already beginning to be felt in
other States. Black Jack Logaa, of
Illinois, is one of the first to profit by the
lesson, and he has already announced
his purpose to take no part in the con
test over the Granny Davis senatorial
succession. It is just possible, however,
that the part Granny Davis took in or
ganizing the Senate has more to do with
Black Jack's neutrality in this connection
than the general public suspect.

New World.
The violent bubbling of the political
pot in tie ith congressional district and
the prospect of a scrub race in which
Kindred, Nelson, Oilman and McCrea
are the conspicuous entries, presents a
condition of affairs in such strong con
trast with the present tranquil surface of
the political w a teis in and around the
sawdust cil y, as to render an explanation
of this abnormal condition of affairs im
possible on any other hypothesis than
that Charley Johnson is now engaged in
distributing the "soap" where it will do
the most good. From all accounts
Charley has been only spending one dol
lar to make Knute think Washburn is in
favor of his election, where he has spent
two to make sure that he brings up the
Tear at Detroit on the 12th inst.
The desperate condition of affairs in his
own district has made it necessarj for
Washburn to send Charley out through
the state and gather up the odds and ends,
and as Knute has always been predisposed
to figure as an appendage or tail to some
one's political kite, rather than as an in
dependent, potent and self-reliant factor
in the politics of the state, Charley
approached him and found him some
what in the frame of mind in which Bill
Arp found Bill Jinks, of Georgia, just
before election day.-
"Jinks, how are you going to vote in the
election," said Bill, "for Col. Johnson ain't at
home, and didn't tell me afore he left, and
maybe he hain't ceen Judge Underwood, and
Judge Underwood hain't heard from Howell
Cobb, but who in the Dickens tells Howell
Cobb I'll be dog'd.if I know." "The fact is
we all belong to somebody, and there is noth
ing wrong about it. I love to belong to a
man whom I respect, and feel that he has
got more terse and judgment than I have,
but then, at the same time, I want somebody
to belong to me. Life is a kind of stair-case
with a heap of platforms, and there ain't room
enough it the top for us all. Most vl us are
lower than somebody and higher than some
body else. Dominion is the pride of a man —
dominion over something."
As it is now almost certain that Knute
will come under the wire a bad third or
fourth at the Detroit free for all,
it looks as if he will have to console
himself with the reflection that he held
"dominion" over that element in the
contest which, much to the convenience
of the bosses, he has been carrying in his
breeches pocket for these many years
without benefit to himself or the public.
Unless, like his legendary countryman,
he fights his political battles with the
view of inheriting the ability and valor of
those whom he slays in battle, the object
of his periodical candidacy is becoming
quite as inexplicable as it is monstrous
and farsical in results.
Another Visit to the Grounds at White
Bear— Matters Assuming Shape.
"Camp Hubbard,'" at White Bear lake, has
assumed shape and needs only "men in
armor" to transfer it into a veritable military
camp and assume the appearance of "grim
visaged war." Yesterday, however, its
wrinkled front was smoothed and the angel
of peace apparently brooded over the campus.
A few of the boys, however, are "tenting to
night on the new camp grounds" in charge
of the government property, with the moon
and 6tars as 6entinels. The fatigue party,
which was detailed to stake out the grounds,
locate and put up the tents, under the com
mand of Lieut. Metzger, have performed good
service, and what was a pastoral scene on Sat
urday morning has been transformed, as if by
magic, into a canvased city, and when the
"boys" come marching in to-day they will
find their military abodes ready to receive
them. The Globe yesterday gave a descrip
tion of the grounds and the plan of the camp,
which description is republished in the Globk
this morning on the seventh page. It is only
necessary to state that the pitching of the
tents ia accordance with the plan has been

a casual call paid to W. L. Anderson's

of inspecting half a dozen splendid paint

•;.';<;* Revivals. ■ ', . ♦•
. Rev. Henry Kittson of St. John's > church,
delivered a discourse last evening upon "Re
vivals. Their Use and Abuse." He took for
his text Ezekiel xxxvii, 3 and 5. '..■••;
. • San of man, can these bones * live — . ' Be
hold I will cause breath to enter into you and
ye shall live.' .' : " „, •; .'V '.. V-'.- , -
His discourse can be summarized as follows:
■:r First — The i revival of , religion is as true in
history of all times as the revival of art, liter
ature, • etc iAs * man, or natioas, ' or powers
deteriorate or decay, so we may be in tne need
of revival .'•t*--.»;..j- • ...■.■••.••■.-- ; - - .-.. _- t - -
Second— Bible is a history of decay and
revival of - religion. " Noah, Abraham, the
prophets, St. John the Baptist, were in . the
best sense of the word revivalists. ■.-.:-' ■::
, — Christianity was established . to re
vive in the souls ' of men the true image of
God. The apostles, by their i preaching and
by their doctrine and life, breathed upon the
dry bones of decayed society the breath of the
divine) spirit, and revived the hearts ; of all
good men. ; [.'.■ • ','■''' -v.
Fourth — That errors, coldness, indifference
and superstition crept into the church of God
no one can deny; that the reformation, the
work of Wesley and the high church move
ment of Newman, K-.ble and Fasey, have
brought about a revival ef true spiritual re
ligion in the chhrch of England, we are ever
ready to acknowledge. - /■■:?; -- ? " .
We therefore start with this thought in
view, that revival of religion has been found
useful, ; yea, necessary, in the past, so those
who in the church of God desire to keep pure
the faith and arouse the souls of men to a
sense of their eternal welfare must see the
need of that which is not new but 'as old as
sin itself, the revival of religion among those
who call themselves Christians.
Here the preacher referred to the work done
in England by missions or retreats in the
church of England, and the fact that societies
of godly men in that church are being organ
ized for that special work.
Union Service a. Market Hall.
The union service at Market hall last even
ing was opened at 8 p. m. by singing "Who
soever Will May Come." On the platform
were the Rev. W. K. Tully, of Jacksonville,
Fla., who preached at the House of Hope in
the morning, Rev. Dr. Dana and a large dele
gation of both ladies and gentlemen of the Y.
M. CA. Nathan Ford led the music.
The meeting was under the charge of D. R.
Noyts, who after a prayer by Rev. 'fully read
the subject for the evening, viz.: "'lhe
Ability and the Willingness of Christ to
Save." ■ .
From the time *of man's fall he had been
constantly looking for a Saviour— the (speaker
remarked — but we cannot really appreciate
being saved until we realize being lost,
but when we do realize our lost
condition the name jof Christ is to us tbe
sweetest name that ever fell from mortal lips.
He could not believe that as some would
have us think that the wars of humanity were
to be lost. It was incompatible with the
wonderful and infinite love of God. He had
cut out and pasted into his Bible the words of
Dr. Hodge of Princeton college, on the subject,
which afforded him a viut deal of comfort
and which he read to the audience. Mr.
Noyes then read from Isaiah the invitation
"Ho every one that thirstelh" an*, also sev
eral other passages of scripture and related a
number of instances where the ability of
Christ to save had been abundantly
testified to. He was followed by Dr. Riggs
who remarked that the subject was
true atid apparent as the most apparent
thing in nature. Some doubted the idea of
personal salvation because they could not
understand the way Christ saves. But this is
no more an incomprehensible idea than a
thousand theories in science which are ac
cepted by the whole world. The
hyms of praise sung ia over 200 lan
guages was the bent possible proof of the
ability of Christ to save. He was followed by
the Rev. Dr. Dana, who spoke ia hi* usual
earnest, forcible manner, his theme being that
there was no tin to great Christ could not
save from it. He wanted people in St. Paul
to be led to see that they were
lost and needed salvation. He hoped the
meetings would be a source of good and
would succeed in saving through Christ some
of the vast numbers of our owd people who
are under the dominion of the terrible evil of
intemperance and whom Christ alone could
save. The doctor made a very visible impres
sion upon his audience. Mr. jNoys announced
ili-it the meetings would be continued and
several other churches would join them, their
platform was broad enough for all denomina
tions. A collection was taken up and a ben
ediction by Key. Dr. Dana closed the meeting.
About five or six hundred people were ia at

Yesterday Herman Farwald, a boy
nineteen j'ears of age, was drowned in
Lake Johanna under the following cir
cumstances. He was a farm hand and
worked for Alvm Roe, out near the poor
farm. Yesterday morning Roe, Far
wald and another man went to
the lake for the purpose of fish
ing. They had no boat and fished
along the shore till about noon
without catching anything. At that
time they concluded to go home and
were about to do co when it was pro
posed that they go in swimming. All
agreed to this proposition and they ac
cordingly went in. Farwald went out
where the water was about ten feet deep,
not a great way from the shore, where he
suddenly called out for help and
immediately sank and was seen no
more. Roe and the other man could not
swim and of course could be of no use to
him and could not have assisted him if
they had tried, besides he sank so quick
ly that they had no chance even if they
had tried.* It took fully an hour to get
a beat, as they had to go a Ions: way
around the lake for one. When
they got the boat and went
to the spot they saw the
body on the bottom of the
lake in about ten feet of water. Word
was sent to Coroner Davenport and
Messrs. McCarthy & Donnelly, went out
and got the body. No inquest will be
held as there is no question as to the
cause of his death. He has a brother-in

his father lives two miles further on in

Washington, Jnly B.— Secretary Folger to
day furnished for publication the following
statement of the origin and results of his in
vestigation concerning the so-called "Doyle
bond plates" :
Treasury Department, Office of Secretary,
Washington, D. C, July B.— So much has been
said in the public prints about the Doyle bonds
that it Is well to make an explicit explanation
m regard thereto. There are counterfeits of
United States bonds, known as the 6 per cents
of 1881, and only of the $1,000 denomination
of that issue. Of genuine bonds there were
issued, in all, $100,650,000, in amounts which
were separately numbered from 119,650, Inclu
sive. When they were issued a record was
made of all of them in a book wherein the
number of each bond was entered in a line by
itself and the numbers of all of the genuine
bonds have been redeemed and canceled.except
$278,000, and interest ceased to run on them
in 1881. When any oae of these bonds has
been noticed for redemption the number it bore
has been offered, the record book has been re
ferred to to see if the bond of that number
had ever been offered before. It has then been
scrutinized in other respects and when accepted
and redeemed an entry has been made upon
the bock that shows that the bond of that
number has been paid off and canceled. It is
the fact there has never been offered for re
demption, a duplicate of any bond heretofore
redtemed, that is to say never have two bonds
of the same number been offered. It is also a
fact that there has never been offered for re
demption a bond with a number higher than
or different from the same genuine number
recorded in that book. The significance of
these facts will be seen further <n.
The existence of any counterfeit bonds, the
Doyle bonds, was not known to any branch of
this department until October, 1880, when
Doyle way arrested in Chicago and spurious
bonds were found in his possession. It af
terward appeared that three of the spurious
bonds had been before that pledged as collat
eral with a bank in Peoria, 111. There were
then taken from him in all 234 of the
spurious bonds, with one $30 coupon at
tached to each bond and fourteen detached
coupons of the same kind and denomination,
and three bonds that had been thus pledged
were after that surrendered to the officers of
the secret service force of the government,
making in all 207 bonds.
It has been stated in the public prints that
$22,000,000, in nominal amounts, of spurious
bonds wtre struck off by the counterfeiters,
and that many of them have been put in cir
culation. Here is where the significance is to
be ftlt of the facts above stated. Surely, if
that amount of bonds or a tithe of it, had
been placed in the bands of innocent holders,
long ago would some ot the bonds have been
offered for redemption, for it is not to be
supposed with the whole amount of genuine
bonds outstanding reduced to $278,000, and
with interest no longer running on them, that
there would be innocent holders of the spu
rious bonds believing them to be genuine, so
wealthy or so careless as not to bring them for
ward for redemption. Had they been offered, a
comparison of the numbers on them
with the book of the record of the
genuine bonds would have disclosed
the fact that duplicate or higher numbers
existed. That fact never having appeared it is
thought to be conclusive that the story is
baseless of the large amount printed and put
in circulation. It has also been stated in the
same way that more than 204 of the spurious
bonds were found on Doyle and that by the
act or connivance of some officer or officers of
the secret service some of the excess over that
num'>er have been set afloat.
Premising that the-204 found on Doyle and
the three pledged with the Illinois bank and
cupon attached to them and fourteen detached
cupons, are now in the custody of officers of
the government and by actual count lately
made as shown to be there, it is further to be
said that the belief that no more exist 6 than
as above stated rests upon the official report
of the officers of the secret service, made on
official oath, and upon investigations lately
had when it was stated that more were cap
tured with Doyle and some rumors to the
same effect, having a show of truth, come to
tl.e hearing of this department a special agent
of the treasury, and a detective from the
assistant treasurer's office at New York, nei
ther of them in any wise connected with the
secret service of the government and acting
without the knowledge of that service, were
detailed to ferret out the matter.
They have reported to the department that
nothing has yet been found to give a color of
truth to the rumor. It is almost certain that
no more were ever in possession of Doyle than
the 207 above spoken of.
Quite as important a matter is the statement
that the plate from which the spurious bonds
were struck was either itself genuine or was
reproduced from a genuine die and work, and
that the means of doing so were furnished
from within the department. lam thorough
ly satisfied thjt these allegations are entire>y
It is well to state with detail how this mat
ter has been presented to me. Dayle was
brought to trial a second time at Chicago on
the second day of May last. Shortly after
that date Samuel M Felker, by calling a pri
vate detective, in that city, came to this de
partment and declared that he was here in be
half of Doyle to get for him immunity from
punishment. The consideration which he
offered therefor was the surrender of the plate
from which the spurious bonds were struck
and proof that it was the genuine work,
from which the real government bonds were
struck, or that it was produced by
th« use of that genuine work and
that the genuine work or use was
had by complicity of officers or employes of
the government. I have no reason to sup
pose that Felker was not 6incere in his offer
or in his belief of the facts which he assert
ed. This department declined to interfere for
the postponment of Doyle's trial. Id the
meantime Doyle had been tried and convicted.
Ffclker did put the plate into the possession
of this department and a promise was given
to him that an effort would be made to get
suspension of sentence upon Doyle and an as
surance of clemency if througn his means it
should be proven that the plate from which
the spurious bonds were produced was pro
cured from officials or subordinate employes
of tbe United Stateß, or otherwise wrongfully
obtained from within the department. This
was done on the same principle that the law
has long recognized of giving immunity to a
criminal on his turning state's evidence
against an accomplice against whom a more
satisfactory kind of testimony was not
to be had. Surely it was better la bring to
light rogues within the department if they
exist trusted by government than to punish
one outside of it and in whom no confidence
was placed. It is sufficient to say on one part
of this matter that nothing has been shown
to this department tending to prove that any
official or employe of the government had any
thing to do with the production of the
spurious bonds or of the plate or dies or any
part thereof from which the spurious bonds
were struck. Tbe most that has been learned
is this, that a plan of tbe parts of it were
furnished to Bro-kaway or Spencer by Charles
H. Smith, an engraver by calling, who has
heretofore been under suspicion of complicity
with counterfeiters and whose employment by
bank note companies and by the government
has given facilities for the improper exercise of
his skill. The plate has not nor
has any part of it been traced further
than this though an effort has been made to
that end by this department and Doyle and
his friends have had an opportunity lor the
discovery and disclosure. It is a fact that the
genuine bonds of the government of the issue
in question were not printed in this depart
ment, but by the bank note company from
plates and dies in the possession of the Litter
and before the creation in this department of a
bureau of engraving and printing. The records
of this department, though not so minute aad
specific as is desirable, show that much of the
matter from which the genuine bonds were
printed, was canceled by the bank note com
pany, was surrendered to the government and
was taken to the navy yard in this city and
there melted in presence of a committee whose
report thereof is on file. It Is not known that
more than one die of those that made np the
genuine plate Is now in existence and that is
the die known as the "sonave" or standard
bearer or "soldier," which played an impor
tant part in the tests which have been applied
ia the scrutiny to which this spurious plate
has been subjected. On the reception of the
plate by this department it was shown to Mr.
Jones, president of the Columbian Bank Note
company of this city, and Mr. Lamb, an
employe of that company. They both, after
an examination not prolonged, gave it as their
opinion that parts of the plates 'were genuine,
or from genuine work. An officer of another
bank note company, after a hasty view, gave
a hesitating opinion to the same end. A
worker at the geometric lathe in the bureau of
engraviDg and printing, examining the bond
with powerful glasses, was variable in his
oral opinion, that the work from which the
bond was printed was genuine, and has finally,
in writing, expressed bis judgment that it was
not. Not satisfied with these tests, this depart
ment summoned Mr. Marter, teller in the
office of the assistant treasurer in New York
city, and an acknowledged expert in the in
spection of such papers; Mr. Rhodes, treasurer
of the Photo Electrotype company in New
York city, who brought with him Mr. Kreis, an
expert in the mechanical and chemical pro
cesses of that company, and Mr. Homer Lee
of the Homer Lee Bank Note company".
The plate and the genuine and spurious bonds
and all the impressions from the genuine or
Bpnnous bonds were placed in the hands of
these persons. They were asked to pursue
their methods independently of each other,
with no intimation to each other of their
opinijns, and state their respective conclu
sions to tbe department, without making
them known to each other. These experts
have pursued their inquiries thoroughly; they
have trken time enough; they have been
minute in examination and have applied the
tests which their practical skill put in their
power, and the result of each report made in
writing is that the Doyle bonds are spurions
and so unlike the genuine as to be
detected by the inspection of an ex
pert; that there is not a single
part of the plate that has been transferred
from a genunine roll or has been in any man
ner produced or fabricated from or by means
of an impression obtained from a genuine
plate, or through the application of an photo
process; that the counterfeiters' original was
the product of the counterfeiters' graver; that
the whole and every part ol the plates were
counterfeit, differing in many details and
features Irom the genuine. The spurious die
of the standard bearer, if it had been produced
in any way from the genuine die thereof
ought to match with the roll by which the
latter was made, but when the spurious die was
placed under that roll it was found that it
would not match, and that the lines of the one
ran in a different direction from the lines of the
other. There are other things revealed by the
examination of the experts tuat to my mind
are conclusive that tbe plate now in pos
session of the department is altogether a
counterfeit; that no part of if is genuine or a
reproduction from a genuine. The reports of
the experts are appended hereto, and refer
ence is had to them.
[Signed] Chas. J. Folgrr,
Secretary of Treasury.
Mr. Lee reports that he examined ten plates
and confidently expresses the opinion that
they were engraved by counterfeiters. After
carefully and minutely describing many differ
ences between the genuine and counterfeit
plates, L.c says, "I have by no means enumer
ated all difierence discovered. I might men
tion many more if it were necessary; indeed
they might b3 made almost indefinitely. They
are so numerous and so marked that any
theory which would connect these plates or
either of them in any way with the genuine
plate is, in my opinion, entirely un
tenable. I cinnot admit the possibil
ity that a singie one of the ] > ites
which I have been invited to
examine has been transferred from a genuine
roll or has been in any manner produced or
fabricated from or by means of a wax or lead
or other impression surreptitiously or other
wise obtained from a genuine plate or has
been produced through the application of any
photographic process. The differcrces dis
closed cannot be explained upon any such sup
position. They are to my mind absolutely in
compatible with any except the hypothesis
that the counterfeiters' originals were the
product of the counterfeiters' engraver.
Mr. Rhodes goes over a great deal of ground
covered by Lee and in addition gives the fol
lowing discription of the metals of which the
plates are composed. The two $1,000 dies,
also a part of the face of the plate are of de
posited or electrotype copper, duplicated from
a single counterfeit original. The peculiar
lathe work lines of the genuine have been so
skillfully copied in general effect aa to readily
deceive, yet upon close comparative examina
tion the variations from the genuine are more
marked than In any other part of the bond.
He concludes his report as follows: In de
termining the quality of the metals compos
ing the different parts of the submitted bond
plates, the following tests were used. The
plates were submerged in an ordinary electro
type bath acted upon by a dynamo machine
and partly decomposed. Those parts which I
have designated rotted or engravers' copper,
showed presence of an alloy by formation of a
dark oxidization upon the surface, while
the electrotype or deposited plates,
composed of copper which is chemically pure,
presented a reddish granulated surface free
from any oxidization which is pecular only
to electrotype or deposited copper. In clos
ing I beg further to add that my report might
have beeH made without fear of contradiction
after a shorter comparison between the plates
submitted and the genuine bonds, yet I have
strictly obeyed your instructions to be very
accurate in every particular and detail, and
now assert and can substantiate that the
whole and every part of the plates submitted
to my ixamiHahon as enumerated above
is counterfeit, diflering in many details aud
features from the genuine.
Mr. Manler's report sets forth substan
tially the same discrepancies that are described
in the reports;of I<e and Rhodes and concludes
as follows:
"From my examination of Jtthe two papers
submitted to me, I am entirely convinced that
the paper which is shown to me as taken
from Doyle is a spurious and counterfeit
paper; further, in my judgment, not one
part of the Doyle bonds was printed from a
genuine plate.

Ladies' Land League.
The rt^ular meeting of the Ladies' Emer
ald Isle land league was well attended last
evening. After the transaction of routine
business, during which the picnic committee
reported a surplus fnnd of $45 in their hands,
a number of spirited addresses wtre made.
Theo. Canby was the first speaker. He
made a strong address. He thought the
league had much for which to feel encouraged.
It had educated the Irishmen to govern them
selves, which would necessarily lead to the
ultimate freedom of Ireland.
Miss Ida O'Brien recited with pretty effect
•'The Land Leaguers Void.''
Ed. McDonald followed in a short speech
which was characteristic of the speaker. The
future of Ireland demands all the attention of
all the Irish people. For centuries they had
been subjected to the most bitter sarcasm and
unjust criticism by those who were too ig
norant to really understand the situation, but
this condition is surely passing away.
He spoke encouragingly of the
support which was being given the
cause all over the country and especially in
the United states, he spoke of the combina
tion of capital for the purpose of giving the
Irish people work ia the manufacturing in
terests and in tilling the soil as encumbered
with danger. He feared that after having
been ground so long with the iroa heel of
cruel and heartless tyranny they would be
only too glud to relinquish all agitation and
settle down to industrial pursuits, perfectly
satisfied with that state of allairs.
The British government were fast beginning

their hands which they would soon be toe
happy to dispose of if the land leaicue move
ment was continued unabated. With a few
words of eucouragemeut to the ladles 1 leajrue
he clo-ed his address.
Wm. H. Donahue was the next speaker. He
thought tha feeling on the part of England
was more bitter thau ever before. He s;>oke
of driving out the Irish members of
parliament when no cause for the
ict existed. He spoke of receiviag
a letter from an intelligent and cultivated
English gtiitleman in England, in which he
opeuly charges the murder of Cavendish and
Burke to the landlords. It was very appareit
that an uprising of the people ia England
against the Unalorda was immintutand the

A few weeks ago the newsboys who usually
sell the Pioneer Press entered into a strike be
cause the publishers would cot furnish them
with papers at the Mine rates as the other
papers. Exciting times ensued. Other boys
were intimidated and bulldozed so that they
did not dire purchase and sell that paper.
Finally amicable arrangements wen: effected
between publishers and newsboys. Bat the
arrangements, however, proved temporary.
Yesterday morning the strike was re
newed with increased vigor At an
early hour the striker? purchased other
papers and stationing , themselves directly
in front of the P. P. office began crying them
out and selling them. Not one sold a P. P.
Finally Mr. Millerlooraed up. H« would have
his papers sold. He scolded and coaxed alter
nately but to no effect. He got mad — mad as a
wet hen in the fall. He darted down the
street and presently returned breathless and
exhausted, but he had in hid wake two boys
whom he had induced to undertake to break
the strike and sell the P. P. They took their
papors and sallied forth but were
quickly surrounded by a number of the strik
ers who despoiled • them of their wares in a
jiffy. And then, depend, Miller was mad. He
raved, and finally called upon the chief of
police to get his wrongs righted. The chief
agreed to . attend to the matter, bat in the
meantime the war hid sub-side and all was
quiet on the Potomac. A platoon of dol ice
will protect Mr. Miller and the P. P. this
morning. ■■■•...
/* the Check Valid:'
Last Friday a cow was stolen by a thief
from a Greenwood farmer and brought to
Minneapolis and soid to a butcher named J.
L. Kuchli. Kuchli drew a cheek for $35, pay
able to William Tammos or bearer, in pay
ment for tht cow. Th*; animal was after
wards fouud to be btolen property, when
Kucbli ruslicJ around to the bank aud stopped
payment upon a check.
In the meantime Taminos took the check
which he had received in return for the stolen
cow and turned it over to Mr. H. J. Burton
who first examined it critically, and
concluding it was genuine had
Tammos indorse it, and he thfan cashed it.
Upon taking it to the bank he found, of
course, tha" he could not get his money. He
is confident.Uowever.that he can compel the de
linquent butch' r to reimburse him, inasmuch
as the check was genuiue and purchased in
good faith by mnoct-nt parties. The matter
will probably be tested in the courts.
