: -r ·- -- - ------------ 1. ---_--_ QUAKER CITY RASCALITY, Litigation Between the State and City Growing Out of Bards ley's Defalcation. Kowledge of the Orookedness Is Brought Close to Laoey and Nettleton. S'he Further the Matter Is Probed More Money Is Found to Have Beeu Misappropriated. PILADELFrTTA, Pa.,, June 12.-United States District Attorney Reed appeared be fore the investigatinit committee of the council this afternoon and made a person nl explanation of his course in noting as attorney for the Keystone bank as a mem ber of the law firm of Reed & Pettit. Au ditor General McCamutuant was 'the next witness. Rufus E. Shapely appeared with the auditor general of the state. Shapely said that owing to prospective litigation between the state and the city of Philadel phia over the deficit in the state funds, the eaditor general, by advice of the attorney general, must refuse to answer any ques tions that will be disadvantageous to the case of the state, but that a statement of moneys owing the state by the city would be furnished by the auditor general. The auditor general then read n statement in which it was shown that there was still due the state from licenses, loans and taxes collected by Bardsley for the year 1890 a total of $815,815. State Treas urer Boyer was also called, but the same objection to his answering questions as in the case of the auditor general was made by Shapely. Harry P. C. Jones, assistant bank exam iner, testified that Qomptroller of the Cur rency Lacey was here on February 13 last, and was at the Keystone bank. He wits shown a statement of the condition of the bank, including the falsification of the ledger, the padding of the New York bank accounts, and the carrying of due bills as assets. Ex-Director of Public Works Wagner testified to conferences held be tween himself and officials of the Keystone bank regarding his acceptance of the presi dency of the bank. During the course of his examination, Gen. Wagner was askcd what he knew about the Spring Garden bank. Wagner, who,. before he was ap proached on the subject of the presidency of the bank, was a candidate for receiver ship of the bank, testified that when he first went to the bank on the subject of the presidency, he said to Bank Examiner Drew that he understood that the receiver ship had been, settled, and it was to be Nelson F. Evanusr president of the Spring Garden Insurance company, and director of the Spring Garden bank. Wagner also added that he understood that Wanamnaker was baekjng Evans for the po sition. In rl0ly. Drew said to Gen. Wag ner: "No, 1 think you are mistaken. Wan mimaker has nothing to do with it. Now, that explains something I did not under stand. Assistant Secretary Nettleton is a great friend to Evans, and he is probably hacking him for the position. It also ex plains some accounts at the Spring Garden that I did not understand, where Nottleton appears as a large borrower." Wagner said he had since looked into the papers for the name of Assistant Se(cretatry Nettleton as one of the debtors of the bank, but had not seen it. NEFTLETON DENIES. lie Contradicts the Testimony of Gen. Wagner as to Evans. WASHINGTON, Sune 12.-Assistant Secre tary Nettleton's attention was to-night called to the testimony to-day by Gen. Wagner before the council committee of Philadelphia investigating the bank scan dal. Nettleton said: "I never backed Nelson F. Evans or any other person as candidate for the receivership of the Key stone bank. After the bank had been closed some days and when the comptroller of currency, who had little acquaintance in Philadelphia, was considering several names for the receivership. I suggested Evans, and recommended that the comp troller inquire in Philadelphia as to his fit ness, which he proceeded to do. I had no suspicion of any financial weakness nior complication on the part of Evans or of the Spring Garden National bank until the an siouncemlent of the failure of the bank. Evans had no knowledge that his namet would be mentioned for the Keystone reo ceivership until some time after it was done. I suggested his name simply because I had known him long end believed him every way fit. I have borrowed no money fromt the Spring Garden batik, but it is probable that certain accommodation notes for which I am responsible are in that institu tion. If so, I am simply among the losers by the bank's failure, which I regret." COMPOUNIIDED W.,-lt IS ARlSILEY. Marsh lired to Leave the Country In ills intlrest.

PzULADnLPHIA, June 12.-The supreme court this morning decided that the city council did not have the right to select a successor to City Treasurer Bardslev. The appointment of Wright by Gov. Pattison was therefore sustained. In a lengthy opinion, the chief Justice says: "It is suffiolent to any that for the purpose of this case we must regard the office designated as city treasurer as a county and not it city office. The treasurer, by whatever name he be called, is a county officer and exercises such functions." A dissenting opinion was filed by Justices Williams and Micthell. In With Lucas.

Hle Denies the Ante-Morten Statement of Hlls Victiml. MI'MrPIS, Tenn., June 12.--The ante mortem declaration of David Poston was read this morning in the criminal court, before which Col. King is on trial for Pos ton's murder. In it Poston said that King walked up to him, called him a scurrilous name, and fired immediately. Col. King then took the stand and told a different story. He says he met Poston and asked him to withdraw charges made against him (King) and wife in the cross bill in the famous King-Pillow case. He refused, and King denounced him as a scoundrel. Poe ton then called King a vile name, and, wit ness asserted, put his lhnd behind his overcoat, and witness, thinking he had a pistol, drew his own and fired. The cross bill in the King-Pillow case was then read, and King said the whole thing was a tissue of falsehoods. The divorce bill, which was never filed, was also introduced. It professed to be a copy of a bill written by ting, setting forth that his married life was unhappy and arranging for a mar rilge with Mrs. Pillow in the event of a divorce being oltained. King entered a denial of this. Forced Men to Go to Work. UNIONTOWN, Pa., June 12.-John A.

Rapidly Rising Storm of Popular Indignation Over His Dis solute Life. A Nice Military Distinction In His Case Emperor Willianlm's CondLemnation of Uncle Wales' Conduct. [Couyright, 1891, Now York Associated: Pross] LONDON, June 12. --The storm rising around the prince of Wales is growing fast and gaining intensity, endangering his chances of succession to the throne, if not the existence of the English monarchy. No class appears to be stirred so deeply as the great middle class, the real strength of the country, and hitherto the solid prop of monarchy. Wherever its voice becomes audible its earnest denunciations of the prince are accompanied by regrets at his nearness to the throne. Representative gatherings of religious bodies, Congrega tional, Methodist, Baptist, Unitarian and Presbyterian, have already recorded their condemnation. Boards of guardians are going out of their accustomed paths to discess motions branding the gambling propensities of the prince of Wales as a disgrace to the country. Several liberal societies have adopted protests against his continuance in the army. Ere long the growing fierceness of popular heat must penetrate to the core of politics, causing party action within and without parliament. The radical members of the commons are opening the attack on the prince, but they have been warned that Gladstone resents the movement, and lead ers of the opposition will actively show re pugnance to associating liberalism with an agitation tending to cast discredit on the crown. The radicals will not be content with anything less than action by the mili tary authorities involving the same official reproof of the prince of Wales, Gen. Wil liams and Levett. Conferences have been held at the war office, attended by Secretary Stanhope, the dukeof Cambridge, duke of Connaught, Gen. Itedvers Buller and Col. Stracey, and it is reported that they decided that the prince of Wales, Gen. Williams and Levett committed no offense against military law, but only a technical breach of regulations. In reference to the earl of Coventry, it is reported that he has intimated his roedi ness to resign the office of master of buck hounds, but acceptance is delayed till the government sees how Lord Coventry's re tirement is likely to affcet the position of the prince of Wales. C.ub sentiment generally supports the prince of Wales. Nor has the scandal les ,enod the prince's popularity in the turf set. Rumors of his bad reception at Ascot are a perversion of facts. Court circles are much exercised over letters from the Ger man court reflecting the opinion of Em peror William. It is believed the emperor has written the queen a long and serious criticism on the prince's life, and dilating especially upon the gambling of oflicers as a grave offense to military honor, and made worse by the signing of a paper per mitting i colonel of guards convicted of cheating to retain his commission in tihe army. The queen, it is said, forwarded the letter to the prince of Wales. Sir William Gordon Cumming, on request of the officials of Forces, reconsidered his refusal of a public welcome, and the town will make a holiday of the occasion. Several tory members of parliament in the interest of the cattle trade. are press ing Chaplin to refuse American, inspectors the privilege of supervising thIt decisions of British officials inspecting imrlorted cattle. Dr. Salmon's unreserved acceptance of the recent dinenosis by American ofticials, con flicting with British inspectors, led to the outery. Chaplin in the meantime finds it impolitic to continue the system. THEI GAN M IILERS. Much Trouble for All of Theom--Cumming )lisgraced. LONDON, June 12.-Tlhr Southern Baptist association passed a resolution condemning the prince of Wales for the part he took inl the baccarat scandal. It is understood the prince is keenly stung at the adverse press criticisms which have been showered upon him from all quarters. The war office au thorities are holding frequent conferences, discussing what action to take in coneo iluence of the verdict given against Sir Wil Ilam Gordon Cumming. The duke of Cain bridge, corumander-in-chief, yesterday sum moned Gen. Williams and Col. Stacey, in command of the Futileor guards. (Camn ming's regiment) to the horse guards, where these two officers had a long inter view with the duke.

Showers and blunshine, Symbolic of the Eventful Life of the Deceased. eautlifual Floral Olferlnrs From Friends- The Cortego a Notable One-No New I)evelopmenllts. BUTTrr, Jnne 12.-[Speoial.1 -The funeral of the lote W. J. Penrose to-day was one of the most implressive and one of the most largely attended ever held in this city. It was a day of varied weather, the alternat ing rain and sunshine illustrated vividly the alternate sunshine and shade of the de ceased's life. Showers fell at interval, followed by bright sunshine, and while the body was being lowered to its ftalt roeting place, the rain fell in a torrent, as if to ex emplify the stormy endingof the deceased's life. 'The floral tributes were the most beautiful ever seen in Butte, a lovely wreath from the Last Chance Copy club of Helena, being much admired among the numerous tributes of regard. The funeral was under the auspices of the Butte Press club, of which the deceased was the newly elected president, but had never presided at a meeting of the club. The local newspaper men turned out in full numbers, while with them were City Editor Bowie, of the Helena Journal, Editor Durstan and Man ager Hallahan, of the Anaconda Standard; Editor Collins, of the Missoula Gazette; L. S. Leonard,bf the Anaconda Review; City Editor Hutchins, of THrE HELENA INDEPENDENT. The mayor and councilmen, members of the legislature from Silver Bow and Deer Lodge counties, followed the deceased to the grave. The sermon by Rev. Frank E. Bush, at Mouu tain View M. E. church, was appropriate and the services were generally very im pressive. Leaving the church the pro cession pursued its sad journey through streets crowded with people. From a win dow in a cell of the county jail the pale face of Belle Browning could be plainly seen watching the procession as it came down the hill from the church. Pass ing the Mining Journal office, which was draped with mourning, hats were raised. Down Montana street the procession passed the bloody spot, still visi ble on the sidewalk at the northeast coiner of Montana and Galena streets; passed the house front which a few days ago Penrose came to his death; passed along the whole length of the street where, Tuesday night, took place that maidnight footrace and reached the cemetery, where, in a blinding rain storm, the remains of W. J. Penrose were forever laid to rest. Nothing has transpired as yet that is definite in regard to the case. The inquest was omitted to-day, out of respect to the funeral. Mrs. Penrose will leave soon for Yonkers, New York, where her parents live. The Mining Journal will issue once more and will probably suspend then. Duncan Hunter, of Helena, was over to day in regard to Penrose's policy for $10, 000 in the Equitable Life insurance com pany. Detectives are at work and are fol lowing every clue and thread, but tae case has thus far baffled every one. A popular subscription will be started in a day or two to raise a curse as a reward for the appre hension of the ass.assins. TWO SUSPECTS. Under Surveillance In (Great Falls-May Bie the Guilty Ones. It is possible that the murderers of Wil liam J. Penrose, or at least two of them, are now in Great Falls, shadowed by Sher iff Hamilton and his deputies. On Thurs day morning, about four o'clock, some twenty-eight houts after the nlurder, two men rode hurriedly into Great Falls, placed their horses in a livery stable, and left them there. They went around town but did not leave the place. Deputy Sheriff Ritchards. of Lewis and Clarke county was in Geent F'alls at the time, and hearing of the Penrose murder and the arrival of the two mud-covered travellers, put the two things together and concluded the mutter was worth looking into. lie lotified liutte authorities land had the sheriff of Cascade county keepl his eyes on the strang Rs. Whether or not anything has developed to conlnect the striangers witll the murder ntle IButto authorities have not yet given out. The Ilody Recovered.

June 12.--A number of in quiries have been received at the state de partment from philanthropic organizations and individuals as to the failure of the United States to signify its adherence to the Congo treaty, final ratification of which must be exchanged before the end of the month. This treaty is an agreement to suppress the slave t'ade, the sale of breech loading arms and intoxicants in the Congo district of equatorial Africa, and nearly all of the great powers have accepted it. To these inquiries the state department hue re plied that the subject is still pending in the United States senate and the department does not feel at liberty to diseuss the mat ter generally, but it is proper to say, as a result of recent correspondence, that it is not probable the treaty will go into of feet at the appointed time in respect to all of its signatures except the United States and it will be left open to this government to give its adhesion hereafter. 'The oppo nents of the treaty in the last session of congress took their stand upon several propositions. ()no was that approval of the treaty by the United States would carry with it recognition of certain French claims to a large part of Liberia, which, as that country is regarded as one of our wards, we could rinot permit. It is also urged that the United States could not, consistently with the Monroe doctrine, undertake to join in a plan of dictation respecting the affairs of another continent. And again, it would be unwise for the Upited States to give recog nition to the present rather broad claims of European nations to the best portions of Africa, which it tacitly recognized by treaty.
