LONPON Juno 27The Now York news
paper which arrived thlu week containing ac
counts of Julio Morzbachers alleged defalca
tion to his partner In the South American
agency of the New York Life Insurance Com
pany have been eagerly rend by American bus
iness men hero and have caused 1 sensation
in Insurance circled Joaiuln Handier Merz
bncliers partner arrived from Barcelona
Tbuisday President Boernot the Now York
Life In also hero as is Morzbachor himself
Mr Doors and Mr Sanchez have been it a
mall hotel and It U I known to very taw that
they are lu London All nfforts this week to
Bee President leors in regard to the attacks
upon Merzbacher nnd tho New York Life have
proved unsuccessful until this evening when
Lo received Tne SUN correspondent
I have seen no other reporter bo said
since the Merzbaoher affair was made pub
lic and anything consequently that Is pub
lished as emanating from me Is false
Iresldent Beers tefnsed personally logo Into
the question of the alleged defalcation
Mr Sanchez ho Bald will be able to give
you all Information upon the subject Ho boa
conducted himself throughout this entire
affair like an honorable gentleman That
there Is any defalcation to the New York Life
however Is absolutely false and the stories
that have been published in New York news
papers to tho effect that thore in a defalcation
on the part of Smith our London manager or
Snmuol Dinkelsplel our London agent are
manufactured out ot whole cloth Our London
department ono of tho best conducted of our
agencies
Mr Kanohoz was very outspoken I asked
him What is at the bottom of this matter
The animus very apparent said Sanchez
to any one who Is familiar with tbe Internal
affairs of the Now York Life Insurance Com
pany Like every great man President Beers
has enemies and these enemies have taken
advantage of his absence to attempt to do him
an Injury It Is a conspiracy headed by a die
charged employee of the company
Who Is this discharged employee I asked
That I am not at liberty to say replied
Sanchez This Is an old affair that boa been
raked up to Injure Presldcn Jeers The de
falcation was to me persona ly 1 and not to tbe
company Perhaps momentarily there was a
defalcation to tho New York Life but
before the company knew ot It It
was mado good The facts of the mat
ter me thesti Merzbacher and I had
Ibo SuanlsliAmerlcan agency of the Now Xork
Life Ho remained In Now York and attended
to our Interests there kept the books and had
control of tho finances while I travelled abroad
and wa absont sometimes ns long as two
years When he made his heavy losses in
Wall street be used the money held by our firm
to cover his shortage but when tho time c Imo
for our settlement with the company 1 was
able to pay every dollar To do this I used
every available asset In my possession and ho
save mo IGUOOO ol his own
la
The talk about anticipating means this I
had n largo income from my policies that was
paid yearly In settling with tbo New York
Life I sold thorn my Interest In these policies
This IB a process that Is gone through with In
all life Insurance companies continually and
there wae nothing unusual mr using these
renewals as nn available assets BO the firm of
MorzbaCfcT t Sanchoz dwui act owe one
dollar to the New York Life 01 course It Is a
natural question why I my partner
took my money I did not prosecute
him and President Beers has been accused of
compounding a felony In not bringing hem
bachor to justice Tbe fact is that the officers
of the Now York Life did tbelr best to Induce
me to prosecute Merzbacher but I laid to
them I you wish to prosecute him you
must assume tho loss that I have made good
to
you
I had several reasons for adopting this
course In the first place I I bad prosecuted
him I should not have got the 00000 that he
uavo mo and In the next would have Injured
my bulnsss If there had been a public scandal
connected with our firm I did not wish to
Imperil my interests for revenge
Is there chance of his
being
any belnl prose
cuted now I asked
That I cannot say replied Sanchez I
was very Indignant about the letter he cabled
to Now York but I cannot afford to waste the
time necessary to push the matter It will all
depend upon circumstances Tbe fact re
mains that this entire matter Is only a per
sonal attack upon President Beers by his ene
mies
Samuel l lilnkelsplel was first Informed that
there were rumors in New York that he owed
the New York Lie 200000 or 300000 by
George Kessler who arrived on the Teutonlo
on Thursday Kessler is the man who accord
Ing to tho Sew York Herald Induced Merz
bnrhor to Il Into speculations In Yall street
DlnkolBpfel first laughed at tbo story and then
became very Indignant That I be said to
the HUN reporter an absolute and malicious
falsehood In no soneo or particular is there
tHe slightest truth In it
Another statement In the ffealil that Presi
dent Beers and Mr Dlnkdsplel were endeavoring
oring to negotiate a loan to covor tbo alleged
Merbaohor defalcation only amused tbe two
firntnamed gentlemen It Is ridiculous
said both
I asked Mr Kessler If It was true that ho
had Initiated Mr Merzbacber In Wall street
I know Mr Mcrzbachnr and like him very
much said Kessler but I have had no more
to do with his speculations than you have

GIBSON MAY NOT BE TRIED

TRUST SECRETARY QUASHED
No Kvlilenee or Concplrncy to Present iry

Also Rnled Against by tho CourtOne
Other Charge Acntnit the ilefcndnnt
Which In to be Considered
CnicAuo Juno 27 Judge Collins hUll argu
ment today ot n motion to quash the Indict
I ments against George J Gibson exSooretary
of the Whiskey Trust accused attempting
to destroy the Shuleldt distillery last winter
At that time tho dlrilHonr was not under the
trusts control Mr Gibson and isle attorneys
have reason to be pretty well satisfied with the
results ot todays proceedings Although I Is
not yet settled It Is probable that no trial will
take nlace
The exSecretary accompanied by his coun
sel Meters John 1 llunnula and William
Burry were In the court room before Judge
Collins took his seat Agent Summervlllo bad
on bit knees a box of leather containing the
machine which it Is l alleged was given by Mr
Gibson to Government Uauger Dwar to place
under the tank in tbo Bhufeldt distillery and
to be touched off
States Attorney Longenecker In the course
of his argument bad Agent Bunimervtlles
mysterious parcel undone and the machine
was placed on the broad rail near the Judges
chair
Nearly everybody In tho room pushed for
ward to get a look at tbe contrivance Mr
Gibson left his seat aDd was at eager a any of
the others to get a look at tbe little tin box
and KB contents consisting ot a loaded section
of a gun ban el tome onkum und a fuse
Then Mr Sumuiervllle pullod from an
inside pocket a long bottle containing a white
liquid It is churged that tbo defondat Intend
ed to give this to Dewar to pour on the oakum
in the eon and explode the machine
The liquid In the bottle was a compound of
phosphorus and bisulphide of carbon
Pour a little qf thnt on a plooe of paper
said Mr Longenecker to the revenue agent
Hove somo waor ready replied Mr Sum
mervllle as he began to uncork the bottle
The water was not brought In time the cork I
began to blaze and so did the piece of paper
on tbo rail II
Summervllles trembling band had splllod a
portion ot the liquid on Ibo onper Tbo
spectators scattered andJudce Collins moved
a ldo Summervlllo kept his bold on the bot
tle and rushed to the water cooler Hero he
extinguished tho fire
The burning paper soon became ashes and
after they bad Leon brushed away nrieumonts
were resumed
Attorney Burry moved to quash the four In
dictments against Mr Gibson One had been
drawn under the dynamite act and one tinder
the conspiracy law
The fourth was an omnibus Indictment cov
ering the othr throe Mr Burry gave a his
tory ot the case and then began an attacK on
the Indictment under the dynamite aot
This prohibits the manufacture having
haTlnl pos
session or bringing Into the State of dynamite
or other explosive compounds Then Mr
Burry tooK up the Indictment obarglug an at
tempt to burn shattur or destroy the Shu
feldt distillery
He said that to convict a person of an attempt
to commit a crime evil Intent and an frt act
mutt be proved VTEftWy
le quoted authorities lo thow that soliciting
a person to commit crlmu was not an
offence against tbe law No crime bad been
committed Dewar had not attempted to com
mit one he bal sImply told a tale against Gib
son and a detective story followed
Mr Burry was well started
Dur wil on an argument
against the conspiracy indictment when be
nan Interrupted IT 1 Mr Longrneckerwhonald
To Fat time I will etate that 1 have no evi
dence of a conspiracy und that Indictment
may be quashed
Mr Burry was much obliged The States
attorney then rose to addrs the eOllt but be
fore lie had gone far Judge Collins called
life attention to the fact that the Destitution
of tHe United States gav citizens the
right to bear arm As n musket without
gunpowder ot little use why shouldnt a I
man be permit t cl under certain restrictions
to have gunpowder lu his rntrICtOnb
Mr Lonveneckor raid he hud not studied
that feature of the case However the Stat
bud some good counts In tll indictments I
did not want t punish the defendant halnl
bad gunpowder In his posseslou but for having
procured I for tbe purpose or ommlttlnu a
crime As to the attempt to commit a crime
Mr Lonaeneckor argued that the
LnReneckor tba IbO overt act
oonslntod In the delivering of the machine
to Dewar
Al liouKh Dewar was acting honestly nnd re
ported everything 10 tbe Uo ernment had not
the defendant done alt that bn could
do to bring about the explosion 1 Wouldnt
he have been guilty I Dwar bad caused the
explosion or the machine
Mr liunnalli Bald tim court ought to put It
sell In tbe position of the LegUIaturn when It
passed be phenomenally stringent dynamite
Rasted
phennmnal strlDlent
law Tbl rendition or the public mind at that
time should bl considered tlat
The law wan directed against explosive
generally employed by a certain elms
antagonistic to general society I the
Lgllatnre bad wanted to Include
gunpowder In the list of prohibited
explosives It would certainly have prohlhled
Tb article would naturally nave suggested <
itself Mr Bimnells alm argued against theH
attempt indictment following the same line
lme Ino
as that taken by his associate
Judge Collins said that while the ralo
ana handling of gunpowder may be re
strlcted In the State 1 ho did not think
that uniter the National Constitution
the Indictment natonal the Consttuton
act could hold I would be qU drnallo
one question remained wot the dcend
ant guilty of an attempt to commit a
crime i1 Had he done all he could
do to Induce an agent to commit It cou1
knowing at the time that the supposed I agent
was working against him The Court would
take the matter under advisement until Tues
day morning at lu oclock

Mrs Elizabeth U Haslott the wit ot Bam

llemsen street Brooklyn died yatterdar of
Iho effects ot a shocking burning accident
Mr Haslott and his wife had no children and
with the exception of Maria Ooff and Bridget
Kaynolds their two servants they lived alono
In the fine fourstory brownftone house Id
Itomstn street a few doors from the Hamlltor
Club a
About 230 oclock Mr Ilaalott left the hons J
for a wnlk on the Heights and Boon alter hlrf
departure Mrs Hailett wont up stairs to thi
servants room on the top floor for the purpose
of overhauling the beds for vermin
In addition to the two servants named Ann
Dillon Who was occasionally employed to do
odd jobs In the house was In the basement at
the time but to nil Intents and purposes Mr
Havlott was as much Isolated as If she bad
been all alone in the house for In going up
stairs eh bad closed the basement door be
hind hor
Before leaving the basement she had filled
from a large tin can a throaounco bottle of
liquid disinfectant or insect killer a light
reddish stuff which smelled strongly kero iijVl
sene and carried It with her i5he was very I
lightly clad her only clothing in addition to
her underclothing consisting of a whit mas
bin morning wrnpncr 4
HUB had not told any of the oorvants to what
use the was going to put the disinfectant and
from the fact that aha closed the door leading
from the lower hallway behind her It Is la
for ed that alto wished to keep them in Ig
norance nt the act that her inaeotkllllng mis
sion was to their room
She bad been absent about a quarter of on
hour when tbo Reynolds girl who was washing
jilthen lu the pantry nt the extreme end of the
basement extension was startled oplerclni
soiram overhead As the scream was re
puatoil but not with the same fore as
the first she thought silo recognized the
voice of her mistress and rushing Into the
kitchen nnoexcludly Informed the other ser
vants that Rho feared something bad hap
pened to Mrs Haslett The alarming screams
bad also not only been heard by Jamrs Htelner
a coachman In the employ of Gen John 1
Woodward but a sight flashed on his eyes
which he will not forget for a long time
Gen Woodwards ttabl Is at 14 Harts alley
along lone extending in the rear of the Item
sea street houses between Clinton and Henry
streets and 14 Is l almost directly opposite the
Haalatt mansion While Htelner was at work
In frontof the stable ubontSooloekawoman
agonizing Bbrleks < whloh Beamed to come
Irom one ot the Itamsen street houses reached
hU ear ills eyes turned In the direction from
which the cries came and caught sight of a
white object onvelODsd In flames falling
through the air from the fourthstory wlndvir
ot the Haslett house to the thirdstory ex
tension
Mr Steiner realized the situation In a mo
ment and acted with such promptness that he >
had run around the corner and uti Bemsen
street to lisa Haslett house s distance of
nearly two blocks and was pounding n th
basement door juntas the three excited ser
vants were on tuelr way upstairs to see what
was tba trouble with their mistress
On being admitted Mr steiner flew up stairs
past the servants In a manner which almost
frightened them ont ol their wits It was the
work of an Instant for him lo reach the roof of
thxtenHlonwher he found a woman burned
In such a shocking manner from head to
foot that even nor color was not to be distin
guished The clothingwltb the exception 01 >
remnant nf the oboes was completely burned
from the body and even the corsets which bad
fallen from the body ware smoking mbrs
The moans of the woman and heartrend
ing appeals for water showed that she was not
only allvjbut conscious Mr Htalnar tender I
TllcKaher ui > and carrying her through
tile fextnslon wlndo placed her on a bad and
hurried out the servants in search of physi
C
Dr A Callender and Dr H CL Biggs followed
each other across the way tn rapid succession
It required only one look at the woman to oom
vine them that the case was a hopeless one
I have never said Dr lUggs last night
Witnessed such a frightful case of burning
and I have bad some year experience at
lll vue Hospital There was not a particle of
the body from bead to foot from which tb M
skin had not been burned and the face wosab A
eolutaly unrecognizable J s
For a few moment attar thaarrival of Dr
Callander and myself the woman was con
scious and labor terrible agony of pain cried
for water She remained in a semionsolou
condition until morphine bad been mercifully
administered to relieve her sufferings W
bandaged the body completely from the besot 4
the feet to the head and when we bad com
pleted this operation Mr Haslett arrived On
his way home a policeman informed him that
accident bad occurred in one of the bouses
adjoining fats own and it was not till he reached
his home that he became aware ot the calam
ity which had befallen him
The scene when be entered the room and
looked at the masked Inure of his wife on the
bd was the most distressing I have ever
wltneced Dr Spolr soon joined ns
but ot course nothing could be don >
toward saving the womans life and
death resulted at about 5 oclock r
about two hours alter the accident Even It t
the burning had not bean half BO revere the
woman could not have survived the book
Her head was cut and bar body severely
bruised by the fall In the extension but no
bones ware broken
It devolved on Policeman Leahy of tbo
Adams street station to Investigate the acci
dent He found only flight traces of Ire In tire
llttlo rear hall bedroom on the fourth floor
The bureau and the bed on which Mrs
Haslett was at work with the insect exterm
mating nuut wnen rue lire was started were
only slightly singed and the bedelotblng
which had bean removed from the bed and
thrown over the chstris had not been touched
by the lire Policeman Leahy found an x
tlngulehed candle and a box of matches lying
on the floor and alongside of them the three
ounc bottle of liquid about threequarters
The surroundings Indicated that Mr Hat I
lotr while at work on the bed with the liquid 7
bad lighted the candle to get a more distinct
view nf the crevices lu the woodwork and thai r
the flames from the candle fanned by the brisk
breer Irom the open window came In contact
with bar clothing It In alxo probable ibacth tt
Inflammable nature ot the llauH may hay
had something to do with starting the tire
Sire IlKSlett becoming bewildered when she
became enveloped In flames jumped from the
window Instead of rushing down stairs Tb > j
