Jcdge E. O. Footo of Topeka, Kan., tpeclal
II examiner for the Insuranco Deportment of tho
j BUte of Kansas, li now examining ths affairs
g of tho Royal Insuranco Company at 50 Walt
j street. Judge Foots has already spont flvo
1 days In the ofllco of the Iloyal Insurance Com
1 pany. lte Is nearly through. Within tho last
I few weeks Judge Footo has examined the i-iver-J
pool and London and Globe Insurance Company
I at 5 William sired and tho Commercial Union
i Insurance Company of 58 William street Tub
8uj some tlmo ago told how Insurance experts
I Terywhero were astonished by tho facility
i with which this Kansas examiner (rained what
Mimed to him a satisfactory insight Into the
affairs of ths companies which had como under
1 , bis observation. It seldom takes him mors
1 than a week and never more than ton days to
learn all that Superintendent McNall of tho
Kansas Insurance Department desires to havo
mbodled In a report nbout any given company.
I When the Now, York State Insuranco Depart-
ment feels that It Is necessary to Inqulro Into
the matters and standing of any Insurance com
pany It comes down upon tho company with an
I examiner and eight or ten or moro clerks and
ponds threo or four or six months In going over
the company's books. The admiration and envy
of the Hew York experts for Judge Footo's
ability to site up a company in as many days as
they need months has, therefore, excellent
i grounds.
j This sort of thing Is, of course, very expensive
Car the company examined. Inasmuch as It has
4o pay the expenso of tho examination. Tlio
rate which Superintendent MoNall authorizes
his examiners to charge Is $25 a day and ex
penses. It will bo seen, therefore, that the
brevity of Judgo Footo's examinations makes
them very inexpensive to Uio insuranco com
panies as compared with the moro formidable
Work of tho New York State examiners. It
, 'Una thought that an account of Judgo iooto a
sttethods of accomplishing so much in so little
tlmo would bo of value A reporter went to
tte ofllco of tho Royal Insuranco Company at
Boon yesterday. ,
f I "Judjre Footo Is not In at present," hs was.
told, "lie has gone out to lunch. If you will
come In at about 3 o'clock you will probably
I catch him."
"When did Judgo Footo go outl" the reporter
"A little after 1." ... ...
"When does ho usually come to tho officer'
!"At about 10."
"And when does ho leave for the dayl
I "Oh, when the rest of us do."
I The reporter returned at U: 15 o clock, when
be asked for Judge Footo bo was directed to a
i roan who was sitting in front of a tnblo in a cor
I per of the room. Tho man's chair was tipped
J backward, and his feet wero braced against the
table. lie was apparently deeply interested in
the contents of an ovening newspaper. The re
porter could not quite behove that thlB was ao
1 tnally the llghtnlngaccountant of Kansas in tho
i act of examining an Insuranco company.
t "Go right ahead," tho clerk Bold, "and talk to
bim. lie Is always willing to talk."
The Judgo Is a big man. He has a largo
head. It 1b crowned with a sparing supply of
1 hair, which tho Judgo brushes back from his
forehead in different dlrooUons according to tho
V intensity of his emotions. He has a big, deep
I voice, and during tho last campaign be mado
I speeches in every town of any account in tho
I State of Kansas. Even In the course of his
ft Interview ho made two or threo speeches about
It the dignity of tho Stato of Kansas, tho Btcr-
ling qualities of the character of Superintendent
1 McNall, and "tho dignity of a representative of
H the great department of ono sovereign State
U clothed with full authority to investigate tho
!l great business concerns of another sovereign
I Btato." During those speeches the clerks of
I the Royal Insurance Company stopped work
n and listened.
1 "My mission to this State," said tho Judge,
I "may bo expressed in two words. 'We have no
I Insuranco companies in Kansas. The com-
V panlos that do business thero are our invited
I guests. Idist year Kansas paid out 81,700,000
In insuranco premiums to these people. Every
dollar of thnt money, good, clean money, went
out of the Stato to the insuranco companies.
Wo don't know what ihcy did wl h it, but wo do
know that only $900,000 ever came back In
I he shape of payment for our losses. Now. sir,
when we are doing buslnoss of that charao cr
with a S'ato at such groat distance from ours
as New York, it behooves us to know some
thing about these companies. First, to And
out whether they havo i hc&o enormous sums of
money which are so freely flaunted in our faces
In their public s atements, and next," here the
Judgo waved his nrm over his head and his
roice rose to a high key, "whether they will
, disgorge when the time- comes."
"How do you go about such an examination!"
. Judge Foo o was asked.
1 "I am glad, sir, that you asked that question.
j Any such question as that will always have a
(air answer from the Insurance Department of
the Stato of Kansas, of which Sir. McNall is the
head. Now, Mr. McNall is a Scotchman, and
the Scotch hnve great Ideas of business. Sir.
Beddall of this company and I went out to get
a snack together yesterday, and I was telling
Mm about Mr. McNall, and dwelling upon our
privilege in having a man of his keen business
ability connected with the Insurance Depart-
Ijnent of the Stato of Kansas "
"What method," asked tho reporter, "do you
tuo in verifying the company's bookBl '
The Judge leaned back in his chair and swung
his arm over the table, where there were five of
the company's books. None of them was open.
"I have them bring me their books, as you
eee here," he said, "and I make test cases here
and there. If there is uny mistake In a book
a test uass Is bound to catch it. Then I go into
thelrlosses department, and I Bee how many un
paid claims thoy have, and how many claims
pending adjustment, and I find out why those
claims are not paid or why they are subjoct to
adjustment. That's what wo want to know
out there in Kansas, Blr. Are these people who
want to do buslnoss In our great Stato simply
seeking an opportunity to como out there and
kin us and squeeze us till the last cent hollers!
Because if they aro, we don't want 'em and I
Bay so and I do not fear to say so, when I make
my report to Superintendent McNall.
"How do you cxamlno tho assets" asked the
The Judge hitched his thumbs in the pockets
of his waistcoat, fixed his eyo on the far corner
of the celling and said, calmly: "I go at 'cm.
That's what I do. Yesterday the President of
this company and ho Is a most courteous gen
tleman, let me say at this point, and one with
whom it is an honor to bo associated in any
business went with me to tho vaults. He gave
me a list of the securities held by this com
pany and we went over them, nond by bond and
share by share, and I checked off every one by
this list." The Judge took the list from his
pocket, spread It out on tho table and slapped
ft with his hand.
I "Have you anything else you would like to
ask me, sir" ho said.

Havana, Deo. 20. Gen. Oomex hastwrlttcn
from Sanetl Splrltus the following letter to a
Cuban friend, under date of Dec. 14:
"Clen. l'ando had to abandon bis campaign
against my troops In this district, in spite of all
his boasts that ho was going to pass through
this territory and reach Santiago do Cuba prov
lnco by land, attacking Gens. Callxto Garcia
and ltabl, after tho extermination of all the
patriots here. Instead of that, when wo had
fought threo hard engagements ho left sud
denly by sea for Manzanlllo, and Qon. Scrrura
did tho satno shortly afterward.
"Thero Is nothing moro like ono Spanish Gen
eral than another Spanish General. They all
seem tho same, l'nndo has dono against mo
what Woyler did, nnd Weyler what Martinet
Campos did. Groat military preparations,
great wasto of men and money, and tho samo
"I am vory much pleased with tho communi
cations I receive from all parts of tho Island.
Tho spirit of tho army Is tho best, and I, am
euro that the law against emissaries from the
Spanish camps who dare to approach our lines
with a shameful proposal of autonomy will be
rigidly enforced."
The cose of Col. Ruiz has frightened the
Spaniards hero, and for the moment all at
tempts to send Spanish commissioners to tho
Insurgent linos with proposals for surrender
have boon ghen up. A cruel order of Gen.
Dlanco Is now to bo executed on a helpless old
man, Jos6 Robau, father of tho woll-knonn In
surgent commander, , Joso Luis Robau, who
mado himself conspicuous during Gen, Wcy
lcr's latest campaign in Santa Clara province.
Tho old man Is threatened with death If ho re
fuses to go to.Sagua.whcro his eon Is'opornttng.
and deliver him a written Invitation tcsurrcndcr
to the Spanish. "Between being shot by us
and hangod by your son, you may choose."
This is the dilemma put to old Robau bv an ad
jutant of Gen. Blanco.
Terror prevails among the Cuban families in
Havana on account of the threatening attltudo
t tho Conservatives. It Is feared that the death
of CoL Ruiz will bo avenged on the Cuban resi
dents of this olty it Gen. Illanco docs not ener
getically restrain the. Conservatives and. tho
Tho hatred of the uncompromising Spaniards
against Mr. Iee has also Increased, and El
Putblo says that It Is a shamo to Spain that the
American Consul was authorlzod to Bend com
missioners to the insurgent camp asking tho par
don of a Spanish ofllcer.

WAaniNOTON, Dec. 22. The Spanish Legation
gave out for publication to-night a cable- mes
sage to SeQor Dupuy de Lome from Dr.Congos
to, the Secretary-General of Cuba at Havana,
giving the text of a telegram condemning the
killing of Col. Ruiz, which Dr. Congosto sold
had been received by Gov.-Gen. Blanco from
Marco Garcia, who was a Colonel under Maxi
mo Gomez and is now a prominent Autonomist
and was recontly appointed Spanish Governor
of Santa Clara province. The message from
Garcia follows:
" The Governor of Santa Clara to the Governor-General:
Not in my ofllclal capacity, but as
a Cuban Autonomist, I condemn with all tho
force of my soul the cruel act of villany perpe
trated on tho defenceless and chivalrous Lieut.
CoL Ruiz Dy a body of men who call thomeelves
Cubans, and who say they aim nt tho independ
ence, not the liberty, of Cuba. The moment bt 9
arrived when the Immense majority of the
Cuban people under the new legal rule, which
is tho rule of liberty and law, protests as one
man against the acts of devastation and cruelty,
which, are an opprobrium to civilization, a scan
dal to tho laws of society, and a denial of all
respect to human feeling. The passlveness
of yesterday should be changed to-day to
unceasing activity, until within a brief spico
tho pacification of the country, recommended to
the efforts of the peoplo generally, is obtained
after tho triumph of tbe autonomist Ideals, to
meet reparation with justice. The generous
blood of Lieut.-Col. Ruiz, immolated in tbe
cause of conciliation and love, will hasten the
moment of peace in Cuba."
Be Seat an Omcer la 190 to OfTer Ulra
Gen. Emlllo Nu&ez, bead of the expedition
department in tho Cuban Junta, said yesterday:
"In 1870 1 had an experience with the Span
lards in some respect similar to that of CoL
Aranguren. The Captain-General of the Island
was tbe same, Don Ramon Blanco, who sent
CoL Ruiz to bribe the insurgent leader. I was
operating with my dotachment at Saguo, having
under my orders Lieut. Pefia. I was then a
Colonel. One morning a farmer named Juan
Bctarte called at my camp and asked permission
to introduca n friend. I thought it was a Cuban
friend and agreed.
" Noxt day ho brought, to my groat surprise,
no less a person than Col. Agullera of tbe Span
ish army. When 1 learned who he was I warned
him not to utter a word proposing any dishonor
to my flag or I would shoot him. He retired In
haste. The next day Lieut. Pefla captured near
my camp two Spanish soldiers, who confessed
that in case Agullera should fall to bribe mo
with $40,000 they were to enter my lines and
kill me. Both were hanged by Pona and I ap
proved his conduct. Had Col. Agullera said a
word about his mission I would have done tbe
sama as Aranguren did with Ruiz. I recall this
matter now as an illustration of Gen. Blanco's
policy of bribing or murdering tho Cubans."

Syracuse, Dec 22. The most sensational
featuro of tha row In Srracuso University over
tbe estato of Bishop Peck's widow doveloped
to-day when tho Kov. W. D. Rockwell, who hs
charged tho university with cheating Mrs.
Pock, gavo out an Interview for publication
which ended with these words:
" I believe thnt tho Chancellor cannot, with
tbo paltry sum of $10,000, buy the good will of
an Indignant public."
On Sunday last Chancellor Day gave out to
tho newspapers two Interviews. Ono of them
was In tho shaco of a slgnod statement. In which
ho accused Mr. Rockwell, who for nine years
prior. to Mrs. Peck's death conducted horbusl-l
ness affairs, of having porslstcntly attempted to
blackmnll him, and nlsorclteratcd tho statement
that Mrs. Peck, whoo entire rstnto was given to
tho university, dlol $1,125 in dobt to that
institution. Tho ulhcr lutcrvlow was tho an
nouncement nf an anonymous gift of $10,000 to
tho Chancellor, as a solsco for tho troubles
through which ho was passing, to bo usod In his
discretion for tbo benefit of tbo university. It
Is to this anonymous glfUMr. Rockwell refers.
" As to tho threats regarding blackmail whloh
tho Chancellor makes, I will not now reply to tho
accusation," says Mr. Rockwell.
Of Mrs. Pock's estate, which the Chancollor al
leges wsb BUlllclont to support her In luxuryt
Mr. Rockwell says: "It has been repeatedly
implied by tho Chancollor that I was tho only
interested one in Mrs, Peck's affairs. To a cer
tain extent I am willing to admit that I was In
terested. I did bellovo that Mrs. Peck was en
titled to good caro nnd fair treatment In her
yours of groat weakness and loneliness. And
now I will glvo an exact statement of Mrs.
Peck's finances, and tho public can judge as to
whethor I have been as mercenary us tho Chan
cellor would mako mo to bo.
" When Bishop Pock died nnd the executors
of his estato will bear me out In this statemont
as I havo before statod, he had about $50,000
to his credit at tho bank, und tho executorof the
estato advancod monoy to purchase a lot In tho
cemetery, pay funeral expenses, doctors' bills,
&c That small amount was absolutely all the
possessions of Bishop Peck. About six months
before his death be left of his salary atthe Book
rooms. In New York, In Mrs. Peek's namo. $1,000.
This was all of his possessions. After a little,
nt her request, tbo executors withdrew this from
the Book room nnd leaned $M)0 of It to tbe Cen
tenary Church of this city, the other $100 to a
gentleman. After a tlmo theso amounts wero
returnod to tho executor, who held them for a
time, and finally Mrs. Peck requested him to in
vest this money, together with Its Interest, just
as ho would think best were It his own monoy.
As he was about to invest some of his own
money in what ho believed to be a profitable in
vestment, ho did invest her money as trustee,
but owing to business depression it proved to be
a poor investment, and while It Is still invested,
she has never bad one dollar of roturns from it.
And from the timo of thu Bishop's death she has
never had as much as $1,000 to her credit at tho
banks. During her last years she haB had
ono small source of ineome, nsldo from
tho $500 she received as a Bishop's widow
from tho Book Concern. Sho permitted tho
university to sell a vacant lot in Harrison
streot. and she recclvod a small Interest on tho
money, amounting to n llttlo less than $80 a
year. Now, any fair mind can see that sho, who
needed nursing night and day, with doctors'
bills. Sic. could not hold out largo Inducements
to mercenary persons."
TheA'orfnern Vinstian Advocate of to-dny,
the ofllclal organ of tho Methodist Church, says
of this newspaper quarrel, which was begun by
tbe Chancellor:
" It Is groatlv to be regretted that such n con
troversy wasposslble. Itismuch more to bere
f fretted thnt It was begun. It Is duo to Chancel
or Day to say that ho disclaims responsibility
for the publication of tho Interview which began
it. It Is duo to the Rov. Mr. Rockwell
to Bay that he is n highly esteemed
member of the Central New York Con
ference, enjoying the conlldonco of his
brethren ana of the community. No charges
made against his character will bo believed by
those who know him. But we can say nothing
which will put tbts controversy in an attractive
Chancellor Day to-night refused to be inter
viewed. It is tho opinion of many frlonds of tho
university that he has said too much, nnd it.is
said that these friends havo been influential in
putting a stop to tho controversy, as far as he
Is concerned.

Cbler Offleer Ileaper or Ihe Bark Marlea
Harris Telia How Bha tTaa Wracked an a
Coral Raerorr Cape Ml. Raantt and Bwt
Crew Was Attacked by Katlrea Rarlt Last.
Chief omcer Hooper nnd three of tho crew of
tho Philadelphia bark Marlon S. Harris, which
was wrecked on a coral reef off CapeBUHoque
on Nov. 10, arrived horo yesterday aboard the
steamer IIovcllus, from Uratlllan ports. Tbo
story thnt Hooper tells is tho first detailed ac
count, of tho wreck that has been rocelved. Tbo
story Is not only of tho wreck, but also of tho
attempt on tho part of South American plratos
to board tho ship after she struck the roof and
to mako away with her cargo.
Tho Harris sallod from Now York for Itlo de
Janeiro on Oct. U. For moro than n month after
sailing tha bark was faorcd by fair winds,
Karly on tho morning of Nov. 10, howevor, ac
cording to Hooper's story, a heavy rainstorm
Botln and tho wind dlod away almost to a doad
calm. With not so much as a puff to fill tho
anils tho bark began drifting to tho southeast.
Karly In tho ovening of Nov, 10 CapL Dasey
realized that unloss a wind sprnng up Boon to
counteract thu forco of tho northwest current,
with which tho ship was drifting, sho would
soon be a wreck on tho shore.
All tho crew had bcon called on deck to bo
ready to sot tho sails In a inomont to any wind
that might carry tho bark out against tbo cur
rent. About 8:30 o'clock, while all bands wero
waiting for tho breeze, tho Harris suddenly
stuck hard and fnst on ono of tho coral reefs
that mako tho paths of ships near tho South
American shore so clangorous. Tho sea began
to break over thu ship, but thorn was no im
mediate danger of her going to ploccs, olllcors
and men decided to BtlcK by her until morning.
Karly the neAtdav CapL DiiBey and a host's
crow nut oil for tho shoro for assistance, llctoro
he rclurned the vessel begnn to breakup and
tbo crew set distress signals in tho rigging.
These weru answered In n short tlmo by about a
scora of tiothcs In small boats. As soon ns
thcsuhoaiHgot near enough the natives, with
drawn kiihcs, attempted to board tho bark.
Seeing what their Intention was, Hooper aays,
ho ordered tho crow lo stand by with revolvers,
mnrllnspikt'g. and ctitlnsi-es. The orders were
not to kill unlcs it wns absolutely necessary.
It was not ncccss-iry to lire a shot in order to
keep the pirates from hoarding tho ship, but it
was necessary. Hooper rmjs, lo break several
heads. This the Yankee sailors did with ncat
ncss nnd despatch lultb the spikes. The hattlo
was kept up until well lu tbo afternoon, wnen
tho natives gave up nnd returned to the shore.
Near evening ('apt. Dasoy returned to the ship
with a lighter, but the ciow refused to endanger
their lives lu nn attempt to savo tha cargo.
Therefore! the bark was abandoned nnd all the
crow wero tnkun olT. Tlicv wero landed at
Natal nnd from thero sent to I'crnambitco,
From thoro Hooper nnd threo nf the crew took
passngu for New York on tho Hevellus. Capt.
Dasey, Hooper says, with others of the crew, re
mained at Natiil to look after the Interests of tbe
owners of tho bark.
Tho Marlon fU Harris was built In 1883 at
Krngcroe, Norway. She wns first named tbo
Linda. A few yo.irs ago sho was bought by a
Philadelphia firm nnd her name was changed.
She was of -IKt tons burden.

After two unsuccessful attempts to end his
lifo with morphine, Edwin J. Knstcln took a
futal doo of. chloral in a room in the Mills
Hotel in Ulccckcr street yesterday. Ho was
discovered unconscious by a hotel cmployoo
and died later In .St. Vincent's Hospital. He
left an open letter, dated Dec. 18, saying that
lack of work cnttsed hlm to kill himself. Parts
of It wero ns follows:
"Tho end has' como. Tho struggle was too
uneven. A career Is ended which had every
prospect of helm; n brilliant one. A man in
tbo priuio of life must die who has everything
to Uvu for, nnd ct ho cannot prevent it. It
(-corns almost iiutcdiblo that a man born and
bred in tho city of Now York, of good family,
enjiniug nn education far abovo tho in erase,
speaking set urnl;forign languages, should tlnd
it absolutely luinossibla to obtain employment
of any kind. Will any ono believe It I No!
My education was tho source of infi
nite pleasure whcn;I was prosperous, moving in
the best society, Ac. Hut to bo used as a means
of securing employment It is useless. Any
man who can rend or write that is ordinarily
bright bus, equal chances with inc.
There, therefore, remains but tho Btcp
which I nm about to take. Without money I
must starve. Without employment 1 cannot
make money. 1 cannot oxpect assistance from
nnv source whntcver that would bo of material
and lasting beneilt. My friends havo dis
appeared." Toward the end of his apology for taking his
Ufa tho sulclilo nsked to novo sovcrnl letters
ho had written forwarded'to their different ad
dresses. Ono was uddressed to Solomon Ot
tcnheliucr of 5I Kast Klgliticth Btreet, whom
ho clcscribo.l ns his undo. Mr. Ottcnhclmer
could not bo seen Inst ovening.
Kpstcln hud lived nt tho Mills Hotel about
threo weeks under tho namo of Krving. Ho
hnd not formed uny ncqiinlntanccs there, and
