NEW TOnK, August 6.-The World says:
The expert counterfeiters who for two
years past have been engraving and print

smaller denominations have been discovered
by secret service detectives, and four of the
gang of five are now locked up in Jersey

in Canadian currency, with the reverse side
all printed, was discovered. The plate for
the front side was found last night in the
possession of Smith when arrested at nis
home. A sufficient amount of fiber paper
to print $400,000 more of Canadian money
was also located in a secret closet. The
paper, according to experts, is even su
perior to that prepared by the Hoyt gang
in Connecticut. Uncompleted plates for $500
and $100 United States gold certificates
were on the tables.
For ten days the detectives have had the

Chief Hazen of the secret service, who In

Saturday rhght. Libbie Smith, a female
ccnfederate, and Wagiler were the only

Capture of Brockway.
Sunday evening Brockway was found at
his Rockaway cottage, and taken to the
Jersey City police headquarters and locked
up under the name of William Edwards.
In his rooms were found a $1,000 railroad
bcnd and a number of unused checks on
various banks throughout the country. A
$100 United States gold certificate and $300
in Canadian notes were found padded to
gether in his coat pocket.
Smith, the engraver of the gang, was
not found until a late hour last night. A
search of his rooms resulted In the finding
of a half-finished plate for $500 United
States gold certificates.
Smith id the son of a noted counterfeiter.
Charles E. Smith, whose picture is in the
rogues' gallery of every police station.
Counterfeit Canadian money was found on
the persons of each one of the four prison
ers, and the secret service officers say they
have a clear case that they have been mak
ing and uttering counterfeit gold certifi
cates of the denominations of $500 and $L00.
That counterfeit gold certificates were in
circulation was first reported to the Treas
ury Department at Washington in March,
1893. Mr. Drummond, then chief of the
secret service, for several months endeav
ored to secure evidence. When Mr. Hazen
succeeded him he resorted to the old sys
tem of decoys, and finally secured a case
against Brockway and his aids, which re
sulted in the arrests told above.
Wmn. E. Broekway, the notorious counter
feiter and forger, and three members of his
gang, Win. Wagner, Sidney Smith, the en
graver, and Libbie Smith, his wife, who
were captured by Chief Hazen of the secret
service buf'eau and his detectives, were ar
raigned today before United States Com
missioner Romnain in Jersey City.
Milton W. Smith. a brother of one of the
prisoners, appe'ared as their counsel. He
objected to the proceedings, claiming they
were irregular, Inasmuch as the crime
charged was committed in New York. He
held that the prisoners could not be held
in a foreign state.
United States District Attorney Beekmnan
held that the arraignment was legal, and
Commissioner Romain upheld him. Chief
Hazen was also present in court. Commis
sioner Romnain held the three men in $15,
000 bail eacht.
They were unable to give the required
securities and were lodged in the Hudson
county jail. Libbie Smith, the alleged wife
of Smith, was then arraigned. She was

CYCLIST LENZ'S ASSASSINS.
W. L. Sachtleben at Erzerum Await
Ing Ilis Opportunity.
ALTON, Ill., August 6.-Another letter
has been received from W. L. Sachtleben,
who is conducting the Lenz searching ex
pedition. He is at Ergerum waiting for
governmental authority to proceed with the
prosecution of the murderers of the lost
American wheelman. Having established
the identity of the assassins, he is com
pelled to lie idly by until the United States,
by force of authority, compels the Turkish
government to allow proceedings against
the guilty parties. He has recently had a
telegram from tho American consul advis
ing him rot to move for the present, but to
await developments, as steps have been
taken to procure him the needed authority.
The State Department is earnestly backing
up United States Minister Terrell in his
demand upon the porte for the punishment
of the three Kurds who murdered young
Lenz, the bicyclist who was making a
tour of the world on a wheel. Justice moves
slowly, however, in oriental courntries, and
it may be some time yet before the mur
derers are arraigned. At the last report,
the minister had not been able to secure
the necessary order for the arrest of the
men, and it is probable that this accounts
for the delay which is complained of by
the representative of the periodical which
sent Lenz on his last journey, but it is
fully expected here that Mr. Terrell, who
is much interested in the case, will succeed
in bringing the murderers to justice.

Indian police will be able to take the In

DENVER, Col., August 6.-A special to

sheriff's posse which left for Jackson's
Hole a week ago last Saturday night re
turned last night.' Ex-Sheriff Spar Hawks
says they rode fully 400 miles, and all the
Indians they saw on the trip were on the
Shoshone reservation, It is his opinion
that the actual war in Jackson's Hole will
not commence until after the soldiers leave.
The Prison Bridge Broke.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., August 6.-Two
convicts, Sullivan of Kansas City and
Hooley of St. Louis, are in the prison hos
pital today possibly fatally hurt. Twenty
prisoners are more or less injured. The
prisoners working in one of the shoe shops
were being marched to supper across a
bridge twenty feet' long, connecting the
second stories of the factory buildings,
when the bridge broke and all of those
who were on it were precipitated to the
gl'ound. Sullivan and Hooley were among
the first to fall. Strange to relate, no bones
were broken. Hooley was hurt in the
breast, Sullivan in the back, All~ who
fell were badly bruised..
Dissatisfied With a Juror.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 6.--A serious
complication of some kind has arisen in
the Durant case. The exact nature of the
trouble is not known, but it is believed
that the lawyers of both sides are dissat

wish to have him excused, Within the last
day or two information is said to have been
obtained with regard to one of the jurors
which would have prevented .him from
serving if it had been known before he was
accepted. The attorneys for both sides
held a consultation over the subject, but
at its close refused to discuss the subject.

THROWN FROM HIS BUGGY..
Charles W. Bowman of Benning Dies
From Bit Injurles.
Mr. Charles W. Bowman, a young man
who resided near Benning. died this morn
ing at Providence Hospital from injuries
supposed to have been received by being
thrown from his buggy near the corner of
Maryland avenue and 13th street northeast
yesterday evening. From all the accounts
Mr. Bowman appears to have been driving
quite rapidly out Maryland ,avenue, when
he tried to turn the animal down 13th
street, and was thrown Out or fell Out of
the vehicle. When he was picked up he
did not appear to be very seriously injured,
although he complained of being hurt
about the body. There was a small red
mark on his forehead near the left temple.
He was removed to Providence Hospital
and his wife notified. She came to the in
stitution, where everythinA was down to
relieve her husband's sufferin'"gs, but with
out avail. The coroner, upon being noti
ted of the death and the circumstances
connected with It, ordered an inquest in
order to determine the cause of death.
THEi WRIT REFUSED.
An Ulnuccessaful Attempt to Enjoin
the Treasury Department.
Judge Cole today refused to grant a man
tamus on the application of W. A. Whaley
and Harry Taylor for a writ of mandamus
against the Secretary of the Treasury and
the treasurer of the United States to com
pel payment to the petitioners of a draft
Whaley and Taylor erected two buildings
at Willetts Point, N. Y., for the govern
ment, and the amount of the draft is due
them on the contract. The draft, it was
claimed, has been withheld under instruc
tions that it be delivered to them in the
presence of certain alleged creditors in
New York. The petitioners claimed that
It should be delivered to them in this city.
The matter was argued at length about
two weeks ago.
In delivering his ~pnion Judge Cole
stated that the treasury officials have ex
hat.sted their power to pay. The case, he
said, was fully covered by a decision of the
supreme court of New York, the validity
of which has been sustained by the Su
preme Court of the United States. The
decision in question ruled that the Secre
tary of the Treasury possesses discretion
in the matter of making payments, and in
accordance wIth that stand Judge Cole re
fused to grant the writ.
Slight Fire, Small Damage.
This morning about 10 o'clock No. 7 En
gIne Company was called to the house og
Mrs. Gertrude Ruppert, No. 1019 U street
northwest, where the house was Qn fire.
The flames were extinguis~hed before the
damage amounted to more than $100.

Lawyer Thomas K Field. Ap
parently Seriously Involved,
CHARGES TO BE IIVESTIGATED
He is Said to Have Obtained Money
MAKES AN ASSIGNMENT
As the outcome of a transaction last May
involving the collection of a check, it is
among the possibilities that an Investiga
tion will be roade regarding the actions of
Thomas M. Fields, a young Washington
attorney who has become well-known be
cause of domestic difficulties and a series
of escasades, aired at length from time to
time in the newspapers.
The charge against Mr. Fields Is that he
obtained $970, May 9, on a check made by
F. C. IUnger of 1111 19th street, payable to
Thomas M. Fields and Charles F. Benja
min as trustees, and drawn on the West
End National Bank. The money being in
litigation the cheek was indorsed to John
R. Young, clerk of the court, by Mr. Ben
jamin as trustee. Instead of signing as the
other trustee, it Is claimed that Mr. Fields
wrote his name over the words "pay to
John R. Young." and co'llected the money.
Since ti-at time, so it is said. Mr. Fields
has made many excuses for not turning the
cheek over to Clerk Young, and Friday last
notified Mr..Benjamin that he would not
produce the paper until certain disputed
points were carried Into court.
It has been suggested that Mr. Fields
may be prosecuted by the Central Nation
al Bank for false pretenses. He is In poor
health and at presert Is at Atlantic City,
according to his friends.
Nothing Known at the Bank.
Absolutely nothing Is known of the trans
action at the Central National Bank. so
the cashier of that Institution informed a
Star reporter this afternoon.
"If there is any truth in the report re
garding the check," said the cashier, "it
was a personal matter between Mr. Fields
and our paying teller, Mr. F. C. Gleseking.
The latter is at present out of the city on
his vacation, and therefore we are wholly
in the dark so far as knowledge of any
possible facts in the case is concerned
Of course, we have not given the slightest
thought to the possibllity of our losing the
amount Involved or of prosecuting Mr.
Clerk John R. Young Informed the re
porter that he knows nothing of the case.

Fields Makes an Assignment.
An interesting feature of the case was
the filing today with the recorder of deeds
of a bill of assignment made by Thomas
M. Fields, July 27 last, naming Edward H.
Thomas and George H. Tichenor assignees.
Mr. Fields, In his bill, states that he Is
indebted to divets persons, which, by rea
son chiefly of domestic difficulties and mis
fortunes, he has become unable to pay, and
that he Is deelrous to provide for the pay
ment thereof to the best of his ability by an
assignment of all his property and effects
for that purpose, not excepting that ex
empt to nim by the laws in force in the

Fields. dispose of the same, collect all
debts due and with the proceeds discharge
all debts owed by him.
His Assets and Liabilities.
The.assets are stated to be $85,850. They
Include house 600 Maryland avenue north
east and many personal effects. Mr. Field's
liabilities, according to the bill, amount to
$18,222.59. The Itemized schedule shows
that $2,600 is due the Central Nationa
Bank. $500 the Capital Savings Bank, $300
the West End National Bank. $1,200 to Wm.
Mayse & Co., and sundry other sums rang
ing from one dollar to $1,000 to business
men of Washington. There is also a mort
gage for $10,000 in favor of the United Se
curity Life Insurance and Trust Company
After discharging all his debts, Mr. Fields
claims that there will be a surplus of $17,

Consolidation of Carpenters.
The conference committee, composed of
delegates representing each of the 'carpen
ters' unions in the District who were ap
pointed some weeks since to c:onsider the
question of the consolidation of all the
unions into one body, held an interesting
meeting last night at the hall of Local
Union No. 190, No. 627 Massachusetts
avenue northwest, that society having ad
journed its regular weekly meeting in
order that the conference mIght be hel'd.
The subject of consolidation was gone
Into to some extent, but no definite conclu
sion was reached. It is the opinion, how
ever, of some of the best informed members
of the various bodies interested that the
consolidation will not be made at this time,

Their imprisonment Leaves Ak Sing's
Family in Distress.
The last prosecution Instituted against
the Chinese laundrymen has had the effect
of virtually ending the cut rate business in
"Chinatown." and the Chinese Union men
are on top. With Ah Sing and his only
helper, Sue Gow, in jail, on a charge of per
jury, the laundry work in the cut-rate es
tablishment is about ended, for a while at
least, and the patrons of this place will
hav to go elsewhere and pay 10 cents to
have their shirts done up in Chinese styld.
With the Incarceration of these poor Ui
namen comes a sad story of want and per
haps suffering. Ah Sing has a wife, who is
soon to become a mother, and he also had
her aged father *to support. This old man
is a Christian Chinaman. His wife was an
Irish woman, and since her death he has

the little half-breed woman has received a
notice, to leave the premises for non-pay
ment of rent. no her counsel says.
But the men will have to remain in jail
until Thursday at least. at which time
they will be given a hearing on a cha
of perjury. Judge Mills, in grantingth
prosecutors a continuance, lined the bi
at 31,000, an amount which they could not
give because they have to pay the men
who go security for them, and the hmount
for such a bond is Eo large that they Could
not raise the money. Lawyer John A.
Clarke has been called in the case to asaist
Messrs. Sterling and Aughinbaugh and an
interesting trial is expected.
The victories of the Chinamnen who have
been making every effort to get rid of the
cut-rate celestials hajf been the cause of
much rejoicing in Chinatown, and the in
terest taken in the cases Is shown by the
large number of Chinamen who attend the
Police Court hearings.
Should Judge Mills hold the accused
Chinamen for the grq pd jury -when he
hears the cases they will have to go to jail
and the cut-rate businussa will be ended.
This, it Is thought, will end the local Chi
