ANACONDA,MONTANA. SATURDAY MORNING. JULY It, 1851. PRICEFIVE CENTS. QUAKERCITY SHARPERS SensationalDevelopments in the Affairs^of the Keystone Bant STOCKHELD BY WANAMAKER ProminentPhlladelphlans Accused^of Complicity In Crooked^Transactions-Statements^Made by Bardsley. I'lULAUtlpiiia, July 10.^The Bardslcy^investigating committee held another^session to-day, at which Postmaster Gen-^eral Wanamaker tostifled again concern-^lug bia transaction with ihe Keystone^bank, and the statement made l^y liards-^Icy to Eilitor McC.uru of the Ledger, waa^for the first tnuo made public, li proved^to be a long interview in which Uardsley^again went over the dory of the Key^^stone hank and stoutly maintained that^he put the t'JUO'Ajo in tho tank^but did tint know what became of it.^Bardsley said Hank Lxamim-r Urow had^lieen a heavy borrower from the Key-^slone, am) wus completely under the^thumb of Lucas ami Marsh. In rcgatd^to John Wanamaker, Bardslcy said^Marsh told linn Wanamaker knowingly^held ovi r-issued bank stock, demanded^SlLHi.tr 0 for it and upset the plans lor re-^organ i ng the bank. Marsh retained^Sunbcrgcr and Jnhnsou as coun^^sel and they made a demand^on Wanamaker, which ho re^^fused, proposing that tho Lucas^estate should pay him $.^U,oO0, Marsh i-i,-^CM* and the bank fj-..u.;i^. The lawyers^then notified Wanamaker if tho Iruud-^ulent shares were not delivered by a^Kpecifletl date they would resort to legal^measures. The shares were then turned^over without delay. Bardslcy asserted^that Wanamaker had made a threat that^he would see Comptroller Lu-ey ami have-^the bank closed liefore they expected^it. In March, 18!i), Marsh came^to him and said Wannmiker wanted^$l^00,tO:i at once, and liardsicy let Marsh^have the money. Bardsley also talked a^great deal aloul his coiinecnon in the^pant with several prominent Philadcl-^phians, ami innmcd ll.etn for the slnml^they had taken against b in. Speaking of^the scheme to get the gas works from^tho city, Hardslc-y asst mil C olonel^Mct'luro of iho 'Junta was in it.^Met hire was to get a big blink of^sleek for his advocacy in his paper, and^was not to pay a ci in for it. K carding^tho payment of fi 0 to Hugn Mullen,^Bardsley said Mayor Filler wauled Mul^^len apwoin led mercantile appraiser, and^William M. Singcrly of t||MsJ wauled^Hicnard J. Leiimiu appointed tu the same^place. Afterwards Bardsley learned that^Mat Quay and tho aud.tor general were^pushing General Albert Crawford for^(he same place. The result was overtures^were made to Singeriy to draw Lcnnoii^out ol the light, and he was promised if^Leiinoii was taken out, that $100.00J slate^money would be deposited in the Chest^^nut sireet bank. This was done, and^Mayor Fif.er got angry a^ what he^. claimed to be a broken promise. Bards^^ley then paid Mullen if000 to redeem his^promise to the mayor. Bardsleysaid B. B. Yard got a great^deal of the Keystone money, lie was in^a pool with Lucas antl Marsh, and Marsh^allowed him to overdraw Ins accounts^fttU.GUU, even when the run on the bank^was going on. The remainder of the^statement was simply a low story of^Bardslcy's troubles containing no new^facts. Yardwas then called, hut did not re.^^|M^nd, his counsel announcing his case^had la-en appealed. The committee in^^structed the city solicitor to take steps io^compel Yard to appear. ThenPostmaster General Wannmaker^ttppean d. Be said he never pledged^over-issued stock after he was told it was^an over-issue, ami it was out of his hands^at the time. Be did l ot know Yatd and^had never met Mr. Lucas but once. Whenasked what transpired between^him and Marsh at Washington, he said^Marsh asked bun to assist tho bank and^he declined. Wanamaker said his firm's^balance in the Keystone at the limn of^the run was t10,0oU and when it closed it^was much buffer. The last money re^^ceived fr^ m thu batik was about^a year before the bank closed,^and the last discount was obtained^in October, 1881. As to the story told by^Bardsley about threats Inclose the bank,^and that lawyers compelled nun to return^stock, Wanamaker says it was absolutely-^false. Granville Haines and Samuel^B. liuey came to Washington^to see him about over-issued stock,^and be told them they must^settlo for it, and if they^did not, in justice to himself he should^inform the comptroller of the currency.^After the bank closed he gave up the^stock. Bardslcy's statement that Marsh^obtained from him clWO.OCX) for Wanna-^maker in March, 1690, was absolutely un^^true without the slightest foundation, anil^Wanamaker invited tho committee to^Inspect his book-,. Wanamakerwas informed by a mem^^ber of the comtuilteo ili.it during their en-^animation ol the Keystone stock book,^they found 11.1XIU shares of stock in his^name in addition to the 2.015 shares which^be testified had been given him by Lucas^to use as collateral for a deal in Heading. When1 appeared before the rouiiiiii-^tee,^ said Mr. Wanamaker, .^I confined^myself principally to the business of the^firm in my deals wiih Lucas in Heading.^1 had in my head certain private mailers^but d.d not suppose thec^ luunilee wanted^to hear of private operations. Wanamakerthen again referred to the^2,615 shares w inch he h id held as collat^^eral and gnve the committee a list of^those he had turned over to the Lu-as es^^tate. That some of these shares had been^atone time in his uaiiie hedid notsialr,as^be had not used them in any o|*ra^^tion. In regard to the stock found^in his name, 025 shares of it, lie^said, was held by irviti A inland, his^bankers, as collateral. This reduced it to^2,000 shares of stock. Of these, hv. blocks^of auo shares each were dated March li,^1886. and while .tcued in hi^ name the^power of attorney never bad La.cn en dorsedby bun ami tbey could never have^been used, Tin next lot, five blocks, 300^shares each, were dated four weeks^earlier. He was a director in the Grand^Trust company. Lucas cams to liini anil^asked bun to obtain him a loan of $40,000^on tbe stock. ^1 have bean Just ioolisb^all my life,^ continued Mr. Wanamaker,^^to do those things, and I got mom y on^the stock and gave it to him. Considera^^ble of a time afterward it was paid off by^the Lucas estate, and tbey got the stock^back. Wanamakeralso presented (be com^^mittee with a letter from Lucas, May ^8,^188C, enclosing money to pay interest on^^he loan. Oftho other unused five blocks of^slock,^ said Wanamaker, ^my impres^^sion is that Lucas at first intended to ask^for a larger loan, so issued them. It was^never used, however, as It should have^been, without my consent. I know^of no other stock but remember^that 10 years ago whan Lucas^was securing control of the bank he^came to me aud said be did not want^people- to know who certain stock be^^longed to and for a time placed some in^my name. In regard to certificate No.^459 which was transferred by Yard to^Scudder and Durham, ot Trenton, that is^pari of the slock on which the loan from^the trust company was secured and sfter^Lucas' estate got it bark, it was very^likely passed over to Yard again to^raise money on.^ Wanamaker thou^again went over at some length tho trans^^action m Beading, in winch Lucas was a^partner, and said when a settlement was^made President Marsh admitted, in tho^presence of three witnesses, that Lucas'^estate owed btra flb.OOO. The^fact that some of the certificates^held as collateral by Irvin and^Ho'.an were dated after Lucas' death, was^due, he said, to the fact that the broker^would not handle iliem while in the dead^mans' name. In closing bis testimony^Wanamaker read a letter from Comp^^troller Lacey aud Assistant Secretary^Nettletou lo show that he never influ^^enced nor delayed for an instant the ap-^l^oiittiuentot a receiver for the Keystone^hank.

GRcATDAY IN LONDON.^Ileyalty Turns Out iu Fall Fores^Misses^for His Prince of Wales.^Lomiom, July 10.^The inhabitants of^Loudon and vicinity turned out In force^lo witness the progress in stats of the Em^^peror Will am from Buckingham palace^lo Guild hall and back to tba palace after^partaking hospitality of the lord mayor.^The streets through which tba procession^passed were lined with immense crowds^of people, and a large fore* of polios and^soldiers kept tbem close. At (o'clock^this morning tho emperor reviewed the^queen's Westminster volunteers on tho^lawn of liuckingham palace. After this^reviewing the German ruler enj ^yod a^ligbt breukfast and then visited at ibe^nsval exhibition. Leaving the exhibition^the emperor returned lo Buckingham^palace and retired to his private Apart^^ments in order to transact public busi^^ness connected with tile German empire.^Precisely at noon tbe royal stale carriage^left Buckingham palace for Guild ball. Onthe way to ihe Thames embank^^ment, at Ludgate circus, where tba rougher^element of the c ly was packed. In all the^numerous thoroughfares branching into^that much-frequented center, then* were^soma exciting incidents. This rowdy^element had lx-cn gelling up staam on^beer and gin for hours, and had worked^itself into a frame of mind well adapted^to giving the Prince of Wales or anybody^else a warm reception. While waiting^for the heir apparent, there were^a number of lively scrimmages between^the hoodlums ami police, in whicb the^latter generally managed to coma out^ahead and which ended in one or more^rulfians being relegated to the rear anu^thence escorted to Ihe nearest police sta^^tion. All tins had been the tuning up of the^mob, as it were, so when the Prince of^Wales' carriage appeared it was in con^^dition to do unpleasant things. The^authorities, it is uncle rstood, received an^intimation that tbe roughs were preparing^to give bun a distinctly hostile recaption.^Iu any case.wlien the carriage containing^the Prince ami Princess of Wales passed^through Ludgate circus, It was driven at a^decidedly rapid pace, so much so that the^carriage hud passed the dangerous spot^before tho main body of the crowd was^aware the prince was in their midst. As^it was, however, in spite of the presence^of the Princess of Wales beside him, the^princo was greeted with repeated^eudiuris of jeering and ^booiugs,^^which were only slightly set^olf by a lew faint cheers. In tho face^of this hostile demonstration tbe prince,^apparently unmoved, looked straight to^bis front, and passed tbe excited crowd^ami made no attempt to reply by salute^to the weak cheering which broke out iu^opposition to the ^booing*,^ etc. The re^^ception accorded to the Prince of Wales^was in strong contrast to the hearty ring^^ing cheers with winch thu Duke of Con-^naught, bis brother, was greeted by tbe^Ludgate circus crowd as the duke ^^^sxs.j^over tho same place. Astho procession left the palace, from^all over the city peals of bells rang out^and announced the imperial pageant had^c^ nunc need. '1 he decorations w ere tu-^peril, every inch of the way Irom the^Sirand to Guild ball abounding in color. F'lagswere to lie seen everywhere- and^conspicuous among them were a hundred^American flags, along with the bunting^of every nation. Tbe appearance of Em^^peror William was a sign for tremendous^cheering. The rereption of the Prince of^Wales was of a mixed character, though^on the whole it was favorable, 'i he im^^perial parry reached Guild hall at 1 (25.^The lord mayor received the guests at^the entrance and the procession formed^and moved lo the library, where the court^of the common council was held. The^recorder read an address to his majesty,^declaring that thu lord mayor and^the corporation txtended a sincere^welcome, declaring his visit to the^queen a happy augury of a circumstance^of the friendly aud affectionate relations^so long existing beiweeii tiio Iwo nations.^The address was presented iu a splendid^gold casket, richly enameled and studded^with jewels. Theemperor replied to the address, ex^^pressing thanks for the welcome exleuded^to bun. Be said he would always, as far^as II lay in his power, maintain the his^^torical friendship existing between Eng^^land and Germany.
