ESTATE Said to Have Been Robbed of $63, 000 by the Accused Man Who Was Formerly General Counsel Louisi ana Purchase Exposition. St. Louis, Mo, Dec, 3. James L. Blair, formerly general counsel of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, was this afternoon indicted by the grand jury on a charge of forgery in the first degree. Blair has been ill for several weeks at a local hospital and for a time his life was despaired of. The indictment is the result of charges filed by James T. Roberts, an attorney, at one time employed in Blair's law office. Roberts secured certain papers and records on which he afterwards based his charges that Blair was luggling the finances of large estates committed to his trust. Roberts publicly charged among other things that Blair had forged deeds of trust and mortgages In which $63,000 was obtained from the estate of the late Peter Blow, of St. Louis, and that he counterfeited and used the notarial seals of the recorder of deeds of St. Louis and frequently employed "Wal ter F. Jenkins," a purely fictitious per sonage to attest the documents. Blair characterized Roberts' accusa tions as a "tissue of falsehood, woven around a few grains of fact," Blair acted as a sort of fiscal and investment agent for the firm of Dick brothers of Philadelphia and New York. Evans R. Dick, the head of the firm, was a co-trustee with Edward S. Robert in the Blow estate. The grand jury requested the Dicks and their attorney to come to St. Louis to tesify, but they ignored the sum lnons. A bench warrant will be given for Blair's arrest. He is reported to have almost fully recovered his health, At one time it was reported that he was on the verge of insanity . Following the Blair exposure Mrs Blair, who was chairman of the board of lady managers of the fair, resigned her position and since then the Blairs have sold their costly ; home and she has disposed of her jewels and her fine s tablo of horses.

His claim exceeds $10,000, besides notes of the corporation for $4000, and a number of other creditors, making the full in debtedness $23,000. Corbett has been identified with the firm three years but not as a stockholder in the corporation He asked Heermans to make an assign ment but could not get him to do so. As a matter of protection he caused the attachment to be made. Thomas H. Schuster was placed In charge of the business. Corbett states that the value of the stock and accounts is not sufficient to cover the full obligations. Heermans was absent from the store the past week. A dozen employees are laid off pending adjustment and renewal of the business. The closing is not a failure only an attachment to settle matters The store is stocked with holiday goods ABOUT FEAR.

JAPAN AND RUSSIA Takashiia Believes War Will Be Avoided MaKes Public Bis Reply to Mrs. Anita McGee, Who Offered the Services of Herself and Others as Army Nurses. Washington, Dec. 3. Speaking of the report emanating from Paris that Japan and Russia are on. the verge of a settlement, Mr. Takashira, the Jap anese minister, said thpat he believed this gratlfyii.g news to be true, , al though he has -not been officially ad- xincd fop -several days of the-progress J of the negotiations. As one -of the In teresting proceedings occurring at var ious stages and as his personal views which he felt certain expreEsed the con census of putlic opinicn in Japan, Mr. Takashira cites the reply he made to the recent offer from Mrs. Anita New- comb McGee, of oie services of herself and others associated with her as army nurses in th unfortunate contingency at war. Mrs.. McGee was from 1898 to 19C1 In charge cf the United States army nurse corps. Mr. Takashira said he thought that among the evidences of American good will so abundantly shown to his country, none would awaken deeper, gratitude or more sin cere admiration in Japan than the no ble ofrer of Mrs. McGee. In reply to Mrs. McGee, Minister Takashira said: "While undoubtedly my government will highly appreciate the generous motives which animate you and the worthy ladies associated with you in making this offer, I doubt whether occasion will arise for its ac ceptance. It has been invariably the aim and policy of Japan to maintain relations of friendship with foreign countries, and although there have been numerous rumors recently of a disturbed condition of affairs in the far east, I sincerely believe that the efforts of my government and others who have the same feeling at heart, to use every proper and honorable means to preserve peace, will be crowned with success.

ZION'S BANKS They Only Held $12,000 In Coin of the Realm. DOWIE MUST TESTIFY He Must Divulge the Secrets of His Fi nancial Operations That the Credit ors of Zion Hay be Protected and if Possible her Enterprises Maintained Chicago. Dec. 3. John Alexander Dowie will be put on the witness stand before Bankruptcy Referee Sidney C Eastman and under oath will be re quired to answer all nuestions regard ing the affairs of JTion City. White the date for the Inquiry had not yet been eet. Judge Kohlsaat today entered the order' which required the overseer of the Christian Catholic church u submit to an examination. This action was taken on motion of Attorney Samuel Ettelson, who tiled the original petition in bankruptcy against Dowlir. "This application was not made for the purpose of harassing Dr. Dowi." said Attorney Ettelson. "The receivers are making an investigation of Dwl" accounts and they. will - vndoubtedly need his testimony to. get a correct knowledge of . Ms financial condition. The date of the examination will b? set as soon as the receivers have found out what they want to- question him about." " t - Receivers Blount and Currtn. spent most of the day at -Zion Citj booking into all accounts -which they could find so that they might prepare the report which Judge Kohltoiat has asked for. concerning the advisability of continu ing the operation of alt the industries, belonging to Dowle. The receivers. It -as said tonight, have found only about $12,000 in both of Dowie's banks. Judge Kohlsaat ha told the receivers that he wants t know as soon as possible whether the interests of all the creditors can be protected best by carrying on the vari ous enterprises in Zion City. It is not likely that any of the Industries will be closed, as in such an event thous ands of persons .in Zion City would thus be deprived of a means of liveli hood. This is said to be one of th main reasons why Dowie will be re--talned as manager of the business un der the direction of the, receivers. Th- receivers realize Dowie's strong hold on his followers and wish to prevpns any turn In events which might turn Zion City into a deserted village. That Zion City's two chief indus tries the lace works and candy fac tory are not paying expenses was of ficially discloser' today in an examina tion of the plants by Chief Custodian Redieske. After questioning closely, the managers of both concerns, Mr. Redieske said: "If Dowie relies on the industries of Zion City to pay his indebtedness th town will still be In the hands of re ceivers a year from now. Neither the lace works, nor the candy factory is on a paying basis. In the case of the bu-e works I understand that lack of raw material is to blame. No one seems j know what is the matter with the candy factor." Mr. Redieske Is now skeptical con cerning Dowie's ability to vacate the receivership. ."Dowie may have a mil lion or two up his sleeve for all I know," he said, "but I have been un able to sec any evidence of . financial strength in Zion City."
