When the Funds linn Short She Forges Notes and Fixes the Crime on Him-Her Alleged Husband a w-ii finale IUnI:r>j*..Tho Fall of an Honored Man. "sv.w Vojim, Oct. lt?.?Tottering And prey haired consul genoral Domino J. Kuiz, oI the republic Ecuador, was nrrested on two churges of forgery yestorday and waa taken to Jcfiorioii Market police court to-dny by detective sergeant Hickoy. Tho prisoner's son was present in court with the lawvor Price, who had been engaged to defend him. During tho proceedings before Justice Iiynn the fact was diseloiod that Mr. Kuiz, who is in his old ago iias boon for eomu time in the hands of a band of conspira-1 tors who havo fleeced hiui out of $30,000 j and in their greed for more money induced him to endorse tho two $1,000 j notes bearing the forgod signature of i Consul Gustavo Preston, 'ilio principal in the conspiracy which has led to the downfall of tho venerable consul genoral is said to ho .Mrs. Ucrtha Laws, hiu adopted dau-Ji:cr. A warrant has been issued and she was urrested today. The friends of .Mr. Ruiz say the oh! man has fallen coinpieteSy under the inlluonce of this woman, and has blindly obeyed her bidding for somo years past, while she lived in luxury at his t'-vr.enso. iIo iirst became acquainted with lior through an advertisement. 11 is wife wiia in tho country and his daughter in Kuropo, and ho advertised for a housekeeper. Mrs. Laws answered tin; advertisement and she was engagod. Site was tiion known as Miss Bertha Krundslat, of Stockholm; Swenden. She soon got into the consul general's good graces, and in the course of a few wcoks made him believe that sho was his daughter by a woman other than his wife, bho seemed to rejoice at her discovery ot her long lost lather, and was very allectionato to him. Mr. Kuiz, who is sevonty-ono yean old and in his second cli ildhoodjinally adopted Bertha as Ins daughter. This led to an estrangement with his wifo and childron and he vent to live with the woman. A short time later Bertha introduced her husband to her "father," who is William Laws, who is a bookmaker and general sporting man, who is said to be now in .St. Louis. The "lather" was delightod that his "daughter" had married so well and readily forgave her deception in representing herself as unmarried. 11 o continued to lavish monev on her until he had expended 810,000, nearly all ho possessed. Bertha needed more mouoy and tho old consul general, acting under guidance, went to Boston and called on Consul l'reston. Ho told the consul that he needed $3,000 to make up a sum of $10,000 he was obliged to pay. Mr. l'reston did not have that amount of money at hand, but ho gave him his noto for 1:3,001) as Mr. Ruiz was a friend of his and Jiml secured his appointment as cousiil for Ecuador at Boston. Then Mr. Ruiz and Mrs. Laws, uho had accompanied him to Boston, returned hero and sho proceeded to spend the $4,000. She had introduced him to Simon Kpstoin, a man who is well known to the police here, and ho had advanced cash on the note. But $3,000 did not last horhmg and in a few weeks she needed more money. As Mr. Kuiz did not know whero to net any the conspirators concocted & scherno to raise it. believing that if the truth camo out the consul gonei-al's frionds would protect them to savo them from diggraco. Hut in this they were mistaken. Mr. Kuiz's son and his lawyer stated in court to-day that they are cognizant of tlio conspiracy, know all concerned in it, and intend to have them punished. Mr. Iluiz states that in August last his adopted daughter camo to him with Si.OOO forged noto.s and said that "Mr. Frestou was a real nice man;" that knowing the consul ueneral to bo financially embarrassed ho had sent him by mail two notes. Mr. Kuiz was only too happy to got the notes, which lie novor sus pouted to bo * i i..,* endorsed thom. Ono of the notes wai enaiiod by Kpatnin, who protected himself by taking a chattel mortgage on the house the consul general had furnished* for Mrs. I.a\vs. Tho second note was negotiated by a man named li. Mile, who died on lFridny last and wits buried to-dav. Before tho notes reached Consul 1'roston, they passed through tho hands of liorman Israel, tho owner of tho burnod Hotel Koval; Henry Pohutak, and the National Butchers' and Drovers Bank. When the noto was pronounced a forgery ho foreclosed tho mortgage on tho furnitnro in Mrs. Laws house and caused tho consul general's arrest on tho charge of forgery. Owing to Mr. Mile's death and the absence oi important witnesses at his funornl, tho hearing in tho ca?o was adjourned until Wednesday and bad was fixed at $2,000. Tho consul general's son offered $2,000 in cash as security, but tho justico could not recoivo it. To-morrow tho money will bo deposited with MrChtimberlniu and Mr. Ruiz will then bo released. Ilia counsel admits that the notes aro forgeries, but denies that his cliont committed the forgery or wa? cognizant of it. Cnu*e<l n Kenantlon. Newark, 2f.

Washington, D. 0., Oct. 16.?Tho soft baliuy Indian suinmor weather which Washington is enjoying is proving harmful to tho President's invalid wife, for it has a depressing and enervating eJl'ect on hor and increases the nervousness from which sho su flora greatly. Consequently she is oven less well and strong 10-day than sho has been lor the l>nst two ur three days. A symptom in the caso recently has been uxefteding drowsiness, the patient sleeping fur uu hour ur longer at a time 1 I.;?? m? ?nl? r\ t'till fialnnn again in u few ininntc9. This drowsiness lias passed away to an extent but it has shown its ellects in increasing exhaustion. iSothwithstanding tho fact that this ovening sho is sijghtly weaker than for no vera I days, -Mrs. Harrison passed on the wholo a very comfortable day and there is, it is said, no occasion tor inituodiato alarm. Dr. Gardhor made iiis lait visit for the day at about 7 o'clock this evening, which id a little earlier than usual, and he said afterwards that at tho time of his visit Mrs. Harrison was resting quietly and was asleep. There wero no present indications of frosh complications in tho case.

Bliss and Chairman Carter of the Re* publican national committee. Mr. Lincoln was rather disinclined to talk for publication but at length said: "It | in impossible for me to answer any questions or express any opinion regarding English political matters. .My official position de! privos 1110 of any freodom which other persons may have to do so. There is nothing connected with i my ollicial position that 1 feel that 1 can properly speak about except the forthcoming international monetary conference in arranging for which I had some share. The question whether England should favor an increased uso of silver in the currency of the worid is not a party question in'England. I feel hot. I hn*vi> Rfiifl without imnronrietv tii.it there id a reasonable proapoct of n suflicient departure by England from its hitherto .strict monometallic basis to give great hope of some practical steps being taken by the Congress for the increased u.so of silver and for the adoption by a sufficient number important powers." * When asked to give his views on tho presidential campaign Mr. Lincoln begged to bo excused from saying anything, as ho hud boon only a few hours here and had little opportunity for talking over the political situation! "But everything I have heard," ho added, "has increased the feeling of encouragement in Republican success which I had when starting on my voyage." In reference to tho Tennyson funeral Mr. Lincoln said: "I know nothing about tho arrangements for tho funeral until I was about to take tho train in London to catch tho Ktruria, whon I received a telegram from Hallam Tennyson requesting mo in my olliciu! capac ity to net as a pan Dearer, i ereuuy regretted that I could not represent my countrymen on that occasion, but since land in L* 1 have learned that my place was taken by ISIr.

Mrs. Martin gavo out for publication her lottor of accoptance of tho nomination for President by tho convention of women sad racists. Tho letter begins by stating that tho nomination apon a woman's suffrage platform commends itself to the writer ospocially from the fact that tho issuo is orto which was originally raised mid advocated by her and othors as long ago as 1S70, before Congress, and wui attorwards maintained as tho principal plant in tho platform of the woman's suffrago campaign of 1872, "when my name wits presented as tho first female candidate for President of tho United States." Mrs. Martin then quoted at longth from hor address ui delivered during tho campaign, inwhlco sho.argued that tho fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to tho constitution permitted this right of suffrage to women and sho earaostiy caounonflB mi goou women to persistently demand this right. Old constitutions arc incompetent to deal with tho new conditions. The advance in science has shown personal conditions of physical unlitncss of humanity togrnppio with tho various now conditions of progress. It is becoming justns necessary now to consider tho important subject of breeding intelligence and physical culture in tiio human race as it is in in'orlor animals. In order to accomplish such results, and, I will add, to overcome tho conditions of crime, insanity and drunkonnosB referred to in your'resolution, new regulations must "be proposed for society. Nay, more, wo must go oven further, and, investigating tho physical ilegoperacy which broods criminals, wo must surround mnthorhood with tho proper conditions of an onlightencd ago. it is to women, therefore, at tho base, that wo look for regeneration of mankind. women's vote.
