HOWTHE MONEY WENT. TheFriend and Howard Families^Prove to Have Been Living Like^Kings in a Michigan^County Town. AnnAkbok, Mich , Jan. 5.- IVrsons In^terested in the Klectric Sugar MH|^company frauds at New York have been in^consultation with attorneys here for sev^eral days pant. The pre ident of the com^^pany has been here and met Mrs. Friend,^the Howards and llalsteds, all of^whom live at Milan, this state.^Mrs Friend's attorney says there was no^intentional fraud, but that the company^expected more than was promised. She^says the company was to furnish the^money to cipiip a refinery for retiniiu^sugar by Friend's M secret process.^ The^company alleges the refining was to he^done from sugar cane. Th's she cannot^do. The contract her husband made^was to refine the sugar at eight) oenti^a ton or sell out his stock Hiid secret for^$250,000, after e\er\thlng was tunning^The company had been running five years^and put in over $300,000, but no sugai lots^vet been refined for the market MrK^Friend says the eotupauy is tr^ ing^to force from her another secret by which^she makes a superior article of sugar^from grapes, instead of getting the Me ret^their contract calls for. Tins last stent^she ref uses to divalge for anv amount. No^arrests have been made and mm even^threatened by the company's agent, who^returned l^ New York Wedne*da\. Mrs^Friends i^ the only one of the party in^^terested in the transaction, the others being^merely employes. PresidentCottrel, of the Kit ctric Sugar^Refiner) company, was found at Islington^this morning, lien*)* the report that he^is here to procure the arrest of Mrs. Friend^is nevs to him. He cannot talk to the^press now, hut promises dev h^pnettli in a^fe-. days, lie deuouaces the claim made^by Mrs. Friend tliat the contract sVa I h^t^specify raw cane sugar, but only cane^sugar, as an unmitigated falsehood. The^process was far too expense to place on^the market. T ere In no question, he say*,^but the product is finer than that produced^by any known process, and would sell bet^terthan any ordinary refined sugar, if It^could be made irom raw sugar. The de^^ception consists in the manipulation of re^fined sugar, instead of refining sugar by a^new process. ^^n l^ehalf ot Mrs. Friend^the claim is made that Prof. Friend invent^^ed two diatinct processes, one for making^a superior article of sugar from relined^sugar, the other for making It from grapes,^and that the latter is worth|millions. Pres^^ident Cottrel pronounces this a humbug,^but says if there Is anything in the grape^procesa the company in entitled to it Thereis no criminal aspect in the case,^so far as it has developed here. President^( ottrel has been making strenuous efforts^to settle with the Friends, who will not^give up unless they get big hoodie. They^still insist their process ts exactly what^the contract calls for. A Journal reporter^has tin* contract, and it makes no mention^of manufacturing sugar from raw material.^The men who pose a*du|^es confess this.^The whole thing has been precipitated h^^the Kuglish stockholders. Dottrel and^others who got tie Kngllshinen to subscribe^now want to get control. Mrs. Friend and^Howard own a majority of the stock and^the alleged secr-is. 'I he only way the^^dupes^ can dtt rtnlne whether or not^they have been duped is to get control.^Mrs. Friend is too sharp to be frightened^luto giving up any seerets. THKMOI II KIt's MTOUV. Milan,Mich., Jan. ft ^Friend's elegant^home, half a mile east of here, was desert^^ed this morning. At the htuse of W. K^Howard Mrs. Howard was found just set^^ting out to Join her husband and daughter Mi-Friend) at Ann Arbor. She is a^ah ^ eyed, brainy old lady, who a deter^nil., vion not to give away what she knows^further than to say if the New Yorkers^have broken open the Electric Sugar Refin^^ery.they have ^lost all their rights.and that^that it would have been well^If the proc* s^ had been^when Friend died last March Also^that he m sure Howard and Mrs. Friend^are able to take rare of themselves. IMmh^the opening of the sugar business the^Howanls and Friends have cut a swell^here, building elegant houses and living^as gehtlemanly farmers with princely In^comes from some source not gent-rally^understood, though not without a taint of^suspicion. They nought the liest, lived^hign, drove elegant equipages and traveled^much between here ana New York. The^vil'age Is greatly excited, hut not a whit^surprised. TO^HOjt'KK/K^ iiowaki). NewYork, Jan. 5.^The leading topic^among brokers and huMneas men down^town is the great expose of the late Plot^Friend's Electric Sugar Kenning company.^Secretary Robinson, of the defunct con^^cern, was nearly paraljz-d by a well-^known Wall s'reet man asking him for ten^shares and offering htm S10 each for them.^Robinson told the man the shares were^worthless; the man insisted and the sale^was effected. The purchase wiu for the^purpose, it !^ said, of ' squeezing^ How^^ard, when eauL'hr. Howard is the man^who sa-ore before a notary public he had^seen the ^professor^ refine raw sugar by^electrl'-itv. it U now h:nted FrUnd Is not^dead at all. There hss not been an) one^found so far who has awn his corpse. His^death Is said to have occurred two da)s be^^fore tne blizzard last March. fiiicAoo,Jan, 5 -In connection with^the expose of the Electric Sugar Refinery^fraud In New York, a local paper says:^^f'mf. Friend was here aoout five years^ago and endeavored to induce local sugar^men to establish a factory. He Insisted,^however, on keeping the secret process to^himself and none of the merchants would^agree. So the scheme fell through and he^went east Livkkpooi,.Jan. 6 -Shares of the Elec^^tric Sugar Refining company have fallen^to thirty shillings. Warrants have h**en la-^sued for the apprehension of Mrs. Friend^and her stepfather, W. \ Howard, a^director of the company, and who had^charge uf affairs at the factory in Brook^^lyn. THESIOUX LANDS. Reportof ths HouM Commit!** R*comm*nd^^in* th* Division of the Reservation \Vash i NoToN, Jan. 5.^The committee^on Indian affairs In the report acconipan)^iug the bill providing for the division ot the^Sioux reservation says: ^The Sioux Indl^ans are completely under the control of a^tew arrogant and self-conceited chiefs, and^these chiefs are largely under the control^of the Northern Pacific and the Northwest^^ern railway companies and avaricious^white or squaw men who, with a few^chiefs, are reaping large fortunes from^the commou property of their own people.^The Northern Pacific railway, as we are^adviaed, owns lar e amounts of real estate^in Dakota that they desire to sell at profit^^able figures, and if this bill should become^a law. and thereby open up H.OUO.OUtl acres^to settlers at nominal figures compared^with the prices they ask for theirs, the^mark* t for their lands will be doted for^many years to come, so they, with their^mighty power, oppose the bill. The North^^western railway company, running to^IVire, on the Missouri river, is interested,^so we are advised. In another road that^runs around this great reservation to the^Black Hills ami does all the carrying trade^for tins vast section. To open up this res^^ervation would not onl) compel the North^^western railway to complete its own line^through to the Illack Hills, a thing they do^not want to do, but it forces the Chicago,^Milwaukee ,v M. Paul and other connoting^lines through. Therefore they oppose the^measure. Tie committee recommends^that the hill pass and asks congress to give^these Indians all the land they can use Knd^reach them governments are not created to^support them, hut to protect them, and like^other people they must work.

ChiefArthur and the Burlington Officials^Satisfied With the Recent Agreement.^CiiK Ai.o, January 6 -Chief Engineer^Arthur, of the Brotherhood of Locomotive^Engineers, arrived this morning froiu^Cleveland. He was closeted with the mem^^bers of the conference committee and the^terms of the settlement were formally sub^imtt.d li him. The terms of the truce^have not yet ^^^ ^ n made public. It Is con^^sidered probable, however, that the chief^points agreed upon are that the ^^/' shall^take the Brotln rhood men hack as fast as^vacancies occur in the ranks, and that the^black list shall he done away with. Ittranspires that Mr. Arthur is going to^California as he says ^on private business^connected with the Brotherhood.^ He de^^nied that his trip has any connection with^the threatened strike on the Southern Pa^^cific rallwsy. Arthur expressed himself as^exceedingly well pleased with the ^^V^ set^^tlement terms and said they were such that^thtY| would meet wIth the approval of^lirotherhcsHi men.
