While MrRothschild was receiving these complaints

CMtrrif ivlifi Acio rorl
Enclosed find letters recently received
from parties representing themselves as the

At least their manner of doing business and
the flagrant misrepresentations they have
mad seem strongly suspicious
On Jan 10 1 man called upon us claiming
to be travelling in the Interest of the firm of
William Roth hld A Co who heistatod were
agent for a cotton good factory in Maine
with sample of cotton goods which he priced
at such low figure 8 to secure a goodsized
order from each ol us and In each instance
promising to sell to no one else In towu In
due time after the orders bad been forwarded
to New York wo each roceh ed a letter INol
worded exactly alike roceled
One of undersigned telegraphed a

Cohu guaranteed payment through the bank
when the goods came to hand
lieforo aoole of these letters had time to

The statement therein tht another party bad

oc
having been pent by either of us We submit
these facts and leave tbe matter for you to in
vestigate I you consider it a case worthy of
investigation We have lost nothing by these

of promising to sell to only one man In a place
seems to have worked well In most places but
In lied BlutI it appears that there are but three
drr goods firms and when they compared
notes they found that Rothschild was lying
about the fourth customer
All of Rothschilds letters I were written on
finely gotten up letterheads which said that
hU telepbone number was 18118 and that his
cable address was Wrothco On HaturUay

DISHONEST PRISON GUARDS
A aCAJfDAL I PlAit MAMA aWSKTTS
STATE raisoir
The Guard Sell Hawa File and Revelvars
to Convict Who Can Pay Well for
ThemThe Recent Puasling Enpe
From the POI are Now Explained
BOSTON March LGov Rncsoll ha un
earthed a big scandal in connection with the
management of tho Massachusetts State pris
on which will result in the decapitation of
eight orton guards and a retention ot A greater
number ot prisoners For two months past the
convicts have been cutting their war out of tho
Charlastown bastlle
bRte
Stool bars have aoparcntlr offered no obstacle
ale and escapes have been frequent The
Warden has been puzzled br the unwonted
condition of affairs but could not account for
te presence of BO many SAWS files Ac In the
hands ot the convicts
GOT Rustell started a little Informal Investi
gation on his own responsibility and it din
closed the fact that tb prisoners wore fur
nished with the means of escape br the very
guards who were sworn to keep them In con
finement
For A long time past certain of the lad
about eight or ton out of fitly have been mak
ing money out of the convict br selling them
saws files and revolvers
For month this ring ha been fattening at
the expense of prisoner who had the means
to pay for unlawful freedom And the State
authorities have been wondering all the time
whr the convicts were escaping so easily
The number of the dishonest guards Is
small And until recently their operations have
been carried on so quietly that no definite
charge could be made against them One
guard was caught after having made
a shameful bargain with the sitter of
one of the prisoners to whom e
tra privilege were allowed because of tbe
woman consent He was discharged The
other guard seem to bate been tempted br
tho big sums of money offered br the prisoners
I is hard to get at tho exact offenders because
everything wrong has been done through a
third and sometimes A fourth party Tim
mlns secured his saws br giving money to a
convict who knew a convict who oould find the
officer to bring the articles to him
I took two or three days Sometimes it
taken a week to cot them but Timmlns knew
about when he would have the articles and
was careful to do something which would
secure for him a long enough sentence In the
them block so tat ho might have a lace to W
The revolver found in the bands of one of the
prisoners at the time of tho big riot last sum
mer wn brought into the prison by a
oitlcer for ono of the convicts It cost the con
vict 25 and tbe officer mado I profit of About
abut
20 on the deal mae
The revolver was not bought br the man on
whom It was found but happened to be taken
br him In the general distribution which was
made just before the outbreak
outbra
Tho prisoners did their work in ths ways
The stronger door to tho block colls Is of
heavy boiler iron and is so located that I the
prisoner gets out of it he is In a corridor to
which Hah t in admitted bv barred windows
Once in the corridor a prisoner oould by
climbing about a dozen feet roach tho barred
windows and attar sawing tbe Iron bars had a
good opportunity lower himself Into the
lBrd This in the way that Timmlns And
one or two others Intended to got out
and almost succeeded A great deal was
said about the prevention of the escape of
those men but It was not mentioned that for
about a month the same thing had been
going on
The blook or plaoeHof solitary confine
ment is o particularly hard place to get away
from and the prisoners would not have used
I so much for that purpose wero It not for the
fact that while then confined name of the
odlcors would give them saws to work with
when they wo ITO do 6 If the prisoners
woroiln their cell prlonerl
bu A number ot them frequently would dis
obey the rules for the sake of securing two or
three days solitary Than thoy would try to
ut out and It was more by chance than any
thing else that one or more of them did not
succeed in their attempt
But the disadvantages woro many In the
first place they could not begin their work
bolero midnight as they were almost sure to
bo caught
As they nad no means of telling the time It
often happenod that they began tbolr work
too late and would bo discovered br the
morning watch At times they them
selves have said and they knew tho
time br the arrival of the guard who
discovered thorn they did not begin work
before 4 oclock in tho morning Then of
course they were discovered Others began
blan
too early and then they were sure to be found
out Quite A number were successful In
getting out Into tho corridor and wero dis
covered there
It not to t = common expression for officers
when they arrived moraines to ask Who got
out lost night V After TimmIns was discov
ered a hint was dronped as to who had been
furnishing tbe saws J and then there was A
change In the guard for the block
To show how little discipline therein At the
prison It Is staled on good authority that A
certain oulcer Agreed to deliver 3 worth of
BIIWB to u prisoner last Wednesday The con
vict gave the officer 15 of which he was to
keep 2 for his trouble
The saws cost about fifty cents a dozen
Probably the ofllcor would charge the convict
1 1 a dozen Tho saws were not delivered on
Account of Mr Titus dismissal and hey
probably never will be
How do the convicts let their money 1 is
tho question asked by the prison officials No
attempt has been made to answer it It is a
fat that ther do have IS in no Inconsiderable
sums too
IUUS
One of the most stringent rules of the prison
Is that not one ot the Inmates shall have ca h
But they do have It and they would be unable
to get 1 unless soma one was dishonest A
prlonerca get all that be has outside the in I
stitution
Officers have been known within two or thre
months to go to prisoners homes for thorn 1
thu prisoner cannot get any money from
home they adopt other methods rolllng their
tobacco to ofllcorolllke Titus one method
They also make llttlo articles and guards
dispose of them keeping I liberal commission
for themselves Then iomotlmoa they steal
leather from the shoe ohop And manufacture
shoes which are purchased by some
one of tho men who are supposed to
look out and see that nothing of that nature
goes on In fact there are a hundred wars in
which they can obtain cash and they stop at
nothing to get It To secure assistance they
must have money and they Are bound to do
What they can to secure it
But money Is not the only thing they have In
thnl
the prison wblch tho rules say convicts shall
not have They have whiskey and a good deal
of It Tho stuff cornea high but that makes
little llfTeronco it is obtained and drunk in
the colic
They can chew but not smoke yet they do
both Almost anything a prisoner wants that
ho or his friends can pay n big lance for thur
can let It makes little difference what The
presence of the revolver At the time of the riot
and the many saws recently show that

I
SYDNEY N B Wo March ITho hotels are
filled with delegates tho National Australian
Conference which will be opened horo tomor
row for the purpose ot preparing a general
Constitution for the seven Australian colonies
and much preliminary discussion of the ques
tions involved has been indulged in through
out the dar
lar
The Tasmanian delegates do not favor the
scheme ot federation proposed but tho anxlotr
evinced b the representatives of the other
colonies attests their conviction that tbo plan
abounds with benefits of Importance The
questions exciting tho most earnest discussion
Are those relating to the lines upon which the
federation shall be laid
A number of delegates are favorable to A
Constitution similar to that of tho United
States while many others prefer the Constitu
tion of the Dominion ot Canada a the basis of
the Instrument to be formulated
There is a strong feeling however In favor
of absolute Independence and It la said that
the Adherent to that principle will endeavor
to capture the convention Delegate Dlbbs of
Sydney Is an unyielding protectionist and has
he will do everything In his power t thwart
the scheme of Imperial federation
The greatness of Australia ho contends de
pend wholly upon her abandoning England
and becoming Independent He affirms that
this sentiment Is I growing and IB certain t a
sari Itself within A decade no matter whet no
tlonthe Convention mar take in any other di
rection
Delegate Macrosson of Queensland vigor
ously denounces the acton ot the British Gov
ernment in regard to the landing of Chinese in
Australia and Ie 1 equally outspoken in his con
demnation of tbo general apttlhy of tho home
Government toward Australian colonies He
expresses himself al decidedly in favor of
Australian Independence upon the lines on
whloh the several States of tho American
Union are enabled to enjoy their freedom
It Is I becoming very evident that the younger
element which knows little It anything about
England In rapidly becoming enthusIastic for
the freedom movement Sir Henry Porko
favors federation on the Canadian plan and is
backed br A largo following
