Tout Worth, Tex., Nov. 26. About
midnight last night fifteen .heavily armed
masked men boarded the outh bound
Santa Fe passenger train at Berwyn, a
hmall station in the Chickasaw nation, In

and express cars loose from the coaches.
The outlaws then ran the cars south two
miles and threw the fireman from the en

was thrown off and still further on the
engine was killed. Then the robbers be

Chicago, TIL, Nov. 2G. It Is now said
that the amount involved in the alleged
fraudulent transactions of Fredricksen &
Co, in connection with which their cash
ier, Bidgood, was arrested, yesterday, will
reach 1,000.000. The charge is bused on
.illeged crooked transaction in giving
mortgages on iauds to which the Fredrick
sens had no title. These mortgages are
said to have been pledged as security for
loans. Fredricksen & Co. hare been doing
a large bnsiness m western Tailroad lands,
sellling for the most part Miiall tracts of
forty or fifty acres on the installment plan,
the purchaser generally being immigrants
or poor people who wished to invest their
earnings in farms. After a certain num
ber of payments had been made Fredrick
Ben gave a deed, a mortgage on the land
being taken for tho unpaid portion of the
purchase money. These mortgages, it is
nlleued, were given as collateral for loans
or sold outright throughout the west.
T. G. Cowie retirements the interests here
of ex-Governor Rice, of Wisconsin, who
was victimized to the extent of ?100,000.
"The charges we make," said .Mr. Cowie.
today, "is that Fredericksen, Bidgood and
D. G. M. Fredericksen were all concerned
in the conspiracy. They got up fraudu
lent mortgages, went out on the street aud
gave men G to sign them. Then they
went to capitalists with the mortgacestmd
raised money on them. They gave mort
gages on land in Minnesota, Dakota nnd
other parts of the northwest. There are
hundreds of people in Chicago who paid
i: tieir earnings to the Freciericksens,
thinking they were Tniyiug land, and now
find their deeds worthless."
Beige A. Ilangen, the receiver appointed
by Judge Shepard for Fredericksen & Co.,
asked leave of Judge Shepard today to re
sign his receivership. He savs that he has
been able to collect only $82.39, and that
the concern has no assets except some ap
parently worthless papers. It has no .need
of a receiver, there being nothing to re
ceive. The judge directed him to serve all
parties in the suit of Joseph Cratty against
Fredericksen -with his motion to be al
lowed toxesin and come in court Mon
day. Dr. John A. Tilce, one of the -victims of
thewiudle, arrived here this afternoon.
"Why, "that man Fredericksen was the
most coldblooded swindler I ever knew,'
he said. "1 hold now ?lo0,000 of mortgages
brild me by Fredericksen and -every one of
them bears a written guarantee signed "by
Frederickeen, that the mortgages repre
sent purchased land omvhich the amount
of itae mortgage has been paid. Of
the wool $150,000 worth I know
of ft number which are absolutely
valueless. I am not exaggerating when i
say that thousands of settlers in Kansas
ana Iowa. who. as they suppose, paid for
their land and sot deeds from Fredricksen,
. .
hare absolutely no title to it. The clan
in such cases was simple one. Fredrick
sen would get an option on a tract of land
from a railroad company and representing
that be owned it, would sell farms to ig
norant immigrants, pocketing their money
and giving them a deeds for the
land. If anybody questioned he
title Fredricksen would furnish
an abstract showing a clear title," Dr.
Itice makes the assertion that "six weeks
ago Fredericksen confessed he hired men
on the street at 5 a piece to sign mort
gages and we made him give us the ad
dresses of these men. Besides the ten men
in his office, who were parties to the con
spiracy, and who have the addresses of
seventy-five men who signed the mort
gages for laud they never owned. Every
one of these men will be arrested, ns will

Chicago, 111., Nov. 2C. The first witness
called in the Cronin case this morning on
behalf of the state was Bailey Dawson,
who testified that on Alay 4, this year, he
was in the Emergency hospital here; that
he never introduced John F. Beggs to
Colonel Babcock, but that on the night of
the 11th he was present when Mr. Gleason
did so. The defense had introduced evi
dence that Beggs was at the Pacific -hotel
on the night of May 4, and that he was in
troduced to Colonel Babcock on that occa
sion. Colonel A. C. Babcock followed as soon
as this witness escaped from the hands of
Mr. Foster, who conducted the cross-examination,
and corroborated Mr. Dawson's
testimony. The cross-examination of this
witness was long and productive of much
amusement to the spectator. He remem
bered meeting Beggs at the Pacific.
William Niemnan was called on behalf
of the state and testified that he had bsen
introduced to James Hylaud, and that he
was not the man who came into his saloon
Saturday night, May 4, or Sunday night.
May 5, as Hyland swore.
The state next introduced the driver and
the man who rented the carriages to
O'Malley the night of May 4, and these
witnesses contradicted another portion of
the testimony of the defense.
Frederick B. Ebersold, inspector of
police, was then called. He said that
neither Officers Rowan or Crowe, whom
he seat out to investigate the Cronin mur
der, ever reported that the milkman,
Mertz, told them that he heard fighting or
scuffling in the Carlson cottage.
Mrs. Marie Brunz testified that the hus
band of Caroline Hoertel purchased from
her during the last week in April tho lock
which he put on the door to keep his wife
out of the house. This was in contradic
tion of a witness for the defense who said
the lock was purchased after May 4.
At the afternoon session several wit
nesses were examined by defense and pros
ecution in rebuttal. Mr. Forest announc
ed that he would introduce some rebuttal
testimony at the next session of court to
show the whereabouts of the witness Will
iam Coughlin on the night of May 4. The
court then announced that owing to the
illness of the daughter of Juror North the
court would adjourn until Friday in order
to allow him to go to her bedside.
After the adjournment of court there
was a consultation between the court and
counsel as to the order of the arguments
to be made before the jury. It was finally
decided to leave the matter to the court.
Judge McConuell will announce his decis
ion on Friday morning.

Kansas Crrr, Mo., Nov. "J6. State

insist that it shall buy its silver at the
time of purchasing, and redeem its certifi
cates at the value of the bullion, or in the
standard dollars at the option of thdholder
at the time of redemption. In this way
the government, and not the individual,
wonld profit when the p rice of silver ad
vances, and the government, and not the
individual, undergo the loss when it de
clines, just as merchants or other dealers
suffer loss or gain in the purchase or sale
of other commodities'.
"Finally, the proposition is to make
these silver certificates which are termed
'warehouse receipts,' a legal tender.
ine proposition giving the legal tender
quality to circulating notes, as I have
6aid elsewhere, was discussed by the people
of this country previous to the adoption
of the constitution. It was, perhaos, the
most oimcuit question that was considered
by the fathers in the convention that pre
pared and finally adopted the constitution
of the United States.
"This question involves such serious,
such far reaching consequences that its
discussion has been avoided by all the
great financiers, by all the public men of
this country from the outset. From time
to time it has been brought before con
gress and laid aside as impracticable and
unwise, but finally placed npon the statute
book, not as a measure of choice, not be
cause any considerable number of mem
bers of congress believed in it, but because
they reluctantly came to the conclusion
that it was a measure necessary to provide
for carrying on a civil war unequaled in
the history of nations.
"The whole volume of business of this
country was carried on from its organiza
tion to the year 1S62 without any legal ten
der money. All political economists and
all financiers of note agree that the giving j
or tne quality ot Jegai tender to paper
money oy any nation is a greac inistaice.
We are in favor of the retirement rather
than the increase of legal tender. But
this proposition is to keep on buying silver
bullion monthly for nine years, upon a
rising market created by the purchaser, to
give the legal tender quality to 890,000,000
of certificates which now represent an in
trinsic value of 1 cents to the dollar.
Certificates issued by the government
should be received in payment of public
dues, but should not be a legal tender in
puyment of private obligations.
"There is really no prejudice among
bankers or among business men anywhere
against silver coin or silver as a material
for money, but they do object to all exper
iments and particularly to experiments on
a large scale, to be continued for a series
of years, which are almost sure to result in
degiading the standard of money.
"The policy of congress and the legisla
tion of late years has been to increase the
circulation of the present over-valued sil
ver dollar of 412 grains, and it was the
policy of the last administration, if not of
the present, in order to strengthen the gold
balance, to encourage the retirement of
the national bank note, and the smaller
denominations of legal tender notes, to
make room for the circulation of the paper
representative ot a forced silver coinage, in
every respect an inferior currency to tho
forms of paper for which it has been sub
stituted. "The capital and deposits of the banks
are loaned to millions of the people, and
often at rates much lower than the rates
fixed by law. The gold coin and the other
assets of the banks belong to the depositor
first, and then to the stockholders, who, as
a rule, are not rich men, but men of mod
erate means. And it is the depositors,
rather than tho banker, who suffers most
from an inferior currency.
"It is the duty of the officers of banks to
insist that the borrower shall pay in dollars
having the same intrinsic value as those
that were borrowed, iu order that depos
itors may be paid in dollars like those
which were deposited. To do less than this
would be gross negligence. 'Strict justice
aud a rigid performance of contracts are
the proper louudatious of all monetary
institutions.' "

Bishop Potter Declares the

Menace to Liberty.
New Yokk, Nov. 20. The Baptist pas
tors' confereuce listened to an address yes
terday on "The Significance of the Roman
Catholic Congress and an Outline of the
Roman Catholic Movement of Today" by
tho Rev. D. C. Potter. He said: That
Catholic centenary congress in Baltimore
was a jubilee, a Roman victory. Its first
note was a pean, its last a doxology. Its
voice was deference, its grasp power, its
purpose advance, and that, dare I say? is
irresistible. It evaded nothing, quibbled
at nothing, but spoke out in a voice domi
nant and daring. The Protestant church
could stand on its platform with hardly a
pnrase changed. A new struggle with
Rome has begun. It is the irrepressible
conflict Romanism against reformation or
protestantism. Rome is grasping power,
She meddles with governments
all over the globe, seeking political place
to advance her selfish purpose. Rome is
horrors untold. Rome is hell. Rome, for
the first time in her history, has of late, in
her most gaudy regalia, been upon our
centennial platforms, and her pomp and
her power have hadrecognitiou.
"That white building on Fifth avenue
with the sky-piercing spires is the capitol
of our American metropolis. Tamman'
hall belongs to Rome. We are today un
der Roman rule.
"A present issue is that Romanists are
tired of being taxed for our public schools.
They call them 'Godless schools.' On this
point they will fight. If they can not win
today, they will wait. The unalterable
determination is to havo a proportionate
share of the school funds, aud who has the
temerity to say that the public school sys
tem is not already doomed. The summon
ing of the factions to the polls will not
wholly meet the issue."
"Merrily, merrily, shall 1 live now," the

Helexa, Mont., Nov. 25. There were
no new developments in the legislative
deadlock today. The committee from the
Republicans called on Governor Toole and
informed him their body was ready for
business. The governor received them
courteously and said that while personally
he was gltd to see them, he could not rec
ognize the committee officially, as the body
they represented had not met in the place
designated by him as the legisla
tive assembly hall. When the com
mittee made its report it was referred
back to them, and four more members
added, who will make a further report to
morrow. The Democratic house made its tem
porary organization nere tonight and ap
pointed a committee to notify the gov
ernor that it was ready for busiuess. Gov
ernor Toole coolly recognized the body
they represented, but said he would make
no communication to the legislature until
both bodies met iu joint session.
The senate met and adjourned, the Dem

report ot the Republican committee who

captured him. They whooped and yelled at

man was staggering under, and his composed,
abstracted manner, they decided that he was

punish them for any "harm done tho foolish
or simple minded."
