THAT STOLEN PACKAGE.
The Treasury Thieves Locked in Default of Bail. Up Washington-, Aug-. 9. So time has been fixed yet lor the preliminary ex amination of persons arrested for the larceny of the $-17,000 package from the Treasury Department. Ottman has employed Richard T. Merrick as coun sel, and an effort will be made to have the bail reduced, but the authorities de mand heavy bonds. Oltman recently made a heavy deposit in the bank in Al exandria. The officers have gone to se cure the money. The employes in the cash-room of the Treasury Department have been watched in all their move ments since the robbery. The president of the Gmnania Saving Bank, of Alex andria, where Oilman has a special de posit, had an interview to-day with General Spinner and Treasurer New, and has consented that the officers shall examine the contents of the packages left by Ottman. Ottman appeared to day before Jude Snell and waived a preliminary examination. The Judge, after hearing the statement of the Dis trict Attorney, required bail in 810,000, in default of which Ottman was commit ted. The sealed package bearing Ott man'snamc, which was deposited in the Alexandria bank, having been open ed, was found to contain twenty-nine o0t bills. The package was taken to "Washington. The detectives expect to recover $"J',000 more to-day. About $2o,i(io of the money stolen from the treasury has been recovered. This afternoon the Marshal seized the property of Ottman, and closed his res taurant. The whole amount taken will probably be restored safely to the Treas ury. Improvement of the Missouri Riv er. The recent high water in the Mis souri river has done an immense amount of damage in culling away the banks, and by changing the cur rent of the river. In several places between St. Louis and Jefferson City several large farms have been nearly varied away by the powerful ctir renf. Many of the owners of these farms are members of the grange, and feel as though some united action .should be taken on their part, and on the part of all those interested, to protect the banks of the river. ft is probable that a systematic effort will be made to effect this result, and the general government will no doubt re ceive an invitation to participate in carrying forward the work. Xo feasible plan has yet been sug gested that we are aware of. and to carry out any plan that will meet fhe approvel of t hose who have had ex perience in changing the channel of the "big muddy," it must have the hearty co-operation of the land own ers along the banks of the rive. There is no question but what the national congress should not only enact a law for the removal o1 snags, but should in connection with our State govern ment improve this river. Perhaps a plan could be adopted, such as ex empting from taxation certain lands for a term of years through which the river pases, provided, ilio own ers will plant willows and other trees of a similar eharacter.in accord ance "with some carefully matured plan, and then protect and care for them for a given term of years. f fome plan of this kind can be success fully carried out, the channel of the river can be very much straightened, the current deepened, and the space through which it Hows between the banks be very much narrowed, and :nuch of fhe rich alluvial soil can be retained that is now being carried to wards the gulf. This is a mailer of great importance to the counties in this Slate, bordering on the Missouri river, and Ave have already received intimations that steps are being ta 3ccn to effect something in the direc tion we have pointed out. Column's Itural World. ( Silent Men. Washington never made a speech. In the zenith of his fame he once attempt ed it, failed, and gave it up confused and abashed. In framing the Constitu tion of the United States, the labor was wholly perlormed by the Committee of the whole, of which George Washing ton was the chairman ; but he made two speeches during the Convention of a very few words each. The Convention, however, acknowledged the master spirit, and historians allirm that, had it not been for his personal popularity and thirty words of his first speech, pro nouncing it the best that could be uni ted upon, the Constitution would have been rejected by the people. Thomas Jefferson never made a speech, lie couldn't do it. Xapoleon, whose exec utive ability is almost without parallel, said that his greatest difficult' wa3 in finding men ol deeds rather than of words. A Preacher's Pun. One ol the best double puns we have ever heard was perpetrated by a clergy man. He had just united in marriage a couple whose Christian names were respectively Benjamin and Annie."IIow did they appear during the ceremony?" inquired a friend. "They appeared both Annie-mated and Benefitted," was the reply of the llevercnd. "There is a burden of care in get ting riches: fear in keeping them; temptation in using them; guilt in abusing them; sorrow in losing them; and a burden of account at last to be given up concerning them. Poor Grimwood. His Body is Found. Chicago, August 17. A special to the Chicago Evening Journal.from White TIall, Michigan says: "The body of jST. S. Griimvood was found yesterday on the beach of Lake Mich igan, near Stony Creek by A. Bcck with. It had oil all the "clothes ex cept boots, and had letters and notes of his trip, which prove beyond doubt his identity." At the .Rochester races on Satur day last "Goldsmith Maid" was com pelled to surrender her "well earned right to be callcd'Queen of the Trot ting Turn to "Lulu," -who made the best four consecutive heats on record. The first heat was won by the Maid in 2:lf)A; fhe second, third and fourth heats by Lulu in 2:165, 2:loA and 2:17. Delinquent Lands. By the provisions of section 5, of the "Revenue law passed by the Legislature last winter, the County Court is empow ered to commence suit against an' per sons who have let the taxes become de linquent on their lands, and can obtain a judgment and sell the lands under ex ecution, the same as if the judgment was obtained for any other kind of a debt. For the information of all con cerned we give below the section of the new law referred to: Section f. The County Court shall have power, and are authorized to com mence suit at any time, in any court of coinpetentjurisdiction, for taxes, penal ties, interest and costs due on forfeited property against the person owning the same. This gives the County Courts authori ty that they never before possessed, and it is to be hoped that the' will take prompt steps to make the owner of those lands that arc delinquent for taxes, come down with the stamps. Justice to those who do pay their taxes demands this much at their hands. Adjustment of Damages. Col. W. S. Arthur visited all of the sufferers by the recent accident on the St. Louis, Kansas City and Xorthern Railroad, yesterday and settled with all who were slightly injured. The company are disposed to do the fair thing bv the injured passengcrs,aud as far as we can learn none of them are disposed to be unreasonable in their de mands for damages. Col. Arthur has done all in his power to provide them with the best medical attention and careful nurses. St. Jo Gazette. Two Dutchmen, who built and us ed in common a small bridge over a stream which ran through their tiirms, had a dispute concerning some repairs which it required, ami one of them positively refused to bear any portion of the expense necessary to f he purchase of a few planks. Final ly the aggrieved parly went to a neighboring lawyer, and placing ten dollars in his hand, said, "Fll give you all dish moneys if you'll make Hans do justice " mit the pridjre." "How much will it cost to repair it?" asked the honest lawyer. "Xol more ah live foliar." replied the Dutch man. "Very well," said the lawyer, pocketing one of the notes and giving him the other; "take this and go get the bridge repaired; it is the best course you can take." "Yaas," said the Dutchman, slowly "yaas, datish more better ash to quarrel mit ilans." But as he went along home he shook his head frequently, as if un able, after all, to see quite clearly how he had gained anything bv going to law." A man drew a note promising fo pay one hundred dollars, lie used a printed form, and did not close up the blank devoted to dollars, and af ter passing as negotiable paper,soinc bodv inserted "and fifty" after the one hundred and before the printed dollars. The note thus altered got into the hands of an innocent parly, who presented it to fhe drawer, and the Supreme Court decided that the maker of the note was liable for its face because through negligence he did not draw a line between the writ ten word "hundred" and the printed word "dollars." Any testimony that the drawer might offer to establish the fact, that he gave the note for one hundred dollars must go for nothing, as there was nothing on the face of the note showing that it had been al tered. Evidence of alteration on ihe face of the note would have changed the case. Let f his be a lesson lo all drawers of promissory notes. No one can be too careful in such mat ters. Gen. George Hall with an engine, pump and oilier machinery passed up on the 9 o'clock freight, on Monday last, for the Mound City coal mines. The Gen. informs us that he will de termine by Saturday night what the earth in that vicinity contains to the depth of 90 feet. He has great, confi dence of a favorable result in this un dertaking. The people of Mound Citv are extremely fortunate in get ting Gen. Hall at "the head of this work. lie is a man of determined energy and will push matters to a conclusion in a short time. He has a pump capable of throwing 120 gal lons per minute,, and says if this is not enough he will bring up a 400 gallon pump. Holt County Times, 18th.
