Claims That Bonding Company
Must Pay Total Amount of
Paylor Shortage.
Suit was filed In the Circuit Court
of the city of Richmond yesterday by
Attorney-General Samuel Y.\ Williams,
on the part of C. Leo Moore. Auditor of
Publlo Accounts, against William S.
Paylor and the Illinois Surety Com?
pany, of Chicago, for the recovery of
tho balance which Peylor owes tho
Statt as treasurer of tho city of Dan?
The total amount sued for Ii J1S,
232.77. This Id made up of the bal?
ance on real and personal taxes as It
appear* 'n tho Auditor's office, amount?
ing to I6.58s.29. and tho churgo for
license taxes, amounting to $3.643.13.
Actually, however, Paylor owes tho
State about iO.OO''). The delinquents,
tho Insolvents and Paylor's commis?
sions are to be cred'tcd. and will
probably, more than wipe out the Item
of i?,5S0.29.
Tho missing treasurer is bonded In
the s-um of $50,000, and the State can
lose r.oth'ng. The surety company is
reguiurly licensed In V'rglnla, and '3
regarded as solvent. Former Senator

Matter of Bookkeeping
Inasmuch as the S'.ate. has covered
everything In *ts suit, tho burden will
be placed on the surety company to
show tho offsets. Those are easily dis?
coverable, for the delinquent and In?
solvent taxpayers of Danville will ap?
pear on an official list, approved by
the City Counall and certified by the
court. Then the commissions may he
calculated, nr.d the amount which the
surety company w'll have to pay in
the event Paylor does not settle, will
be ascertained.
Under the law regarding claims of
the State against treasurers. It was
j only necessary for the Attorney-Gen?
eral t?> give notice that on November
4. 1?12. tho first day of the next term
of the Circuit Court, ho will move for
n judgment for the amount. The off?
sets will then he shown, and, unlefs
settlement has been made In tho mean?
time, judgment will bo entered, with
interest from July 15. at the legal
rate of fifteen per cent.
Notice of the suit was served on
Commissioner of Insurance Joseph
Button, who is statutory agent for the
Illinois Surety Company In Virginia.
The Attorney-General declined to pay
i the fee of {2.50 required by law in
I such caEes. but after somo demur
Colone". Button accepted service, al?
though he is doubtful as to tho legality
of such acceptance without the fee.
which he is supposed to cover Into
the State Treasury. Tho Attorney-Gen?
eral does not think It should be paid
by the State to tho Stato when that
litigant Is the sole beneficiary.
No Clue Is Found.
[Spet ial to The Times-Dispatch.]
Danville, Va., July 23.?No clue has
been found to the whereabouts of
fr>rmer City Treasurer Paylor. who
vanished last Thursday.
At a. called meeting of the City
Council held this afternoon at 5 o'clock,
the office- of treasurer was declared
vacant, anu the clerk of the Council
was directed to trar.tmlt a resolution
passed unanimously to that effect to
I Judfc-e R. w. Pcatross. of the Cor
I poration Court.
On Friday the Board of Aldermen
j will meet to concur with the action
I of the Council ?nd the Judge then will
appoint a treasurer to fill the unex
pired term of Paylor, which is of
eighteen months duration.
City Auditor Brydon, who was re
' called from ills vacation by wire yes?
terday, arrived In the city to-duy and
I will at once commence a rigid exam?
ination of the c'ty's accounts, but it
j Is confidently believed that there is
no shortage there. With regard to
1 the Stato accounts it is understood
I that In two of the city bunks there Is
I a sum of Jl.300. It Is also reported
! that in the treasurer's office there are
, several thousand dollars in uncollecte.l
' licenses, blit because of the fact that
'? tliu otllce Is closed, more precise data
is unobtainable.
This morning Frederick B. Rhoden,
the Washington agent of the Illinois
Surety Company, was here. Ho con?
ferred with Auditor Brydon. nnd upon
learning that he had not yet examined
Paylor's accounts left the city.
With the disappearance of the treas?
urer Is that of a prominent married
woman, who left hero Wednesday and
cannot bb 1 cated by her husband.
Rumors couple, tho names of these two,
but owlpg to tho unwillingness of the
partlos d'rectly Involved to Impart any
Information it Is impossible to get
down to facts.
Paylor's wife Is bearing the shock
badly. She was hysterical yesterday,
;:;t ! has b< ??!! m a serious condition all
It is understood that a, effort will
be made by certain members of tho
City Council to merge the olllco of
City Treasurer with f..at of tho City
Collector. Should a \VHt 0f election be
Issued by Ho- Judge In lieu of appoint?
ing a man t'> mi the unoxplred term
there will be s'xtoon or seventeen can?
didates for the position.

did nor live there, but In a small house
close by.
As a matter of fact. Lord Blesslng
ton himself Urn brought d'Orsay Into
his menage by inviting bltn to accom?
pany his party for it tour in Italy, and
from that time on he never remained I
long away from the niesslngtons" Im-1
mediate neighborhood, until the death
of the countess. While at Naples, Lady
Blesington caused 'Nonn d'Orsay to wedl
Lady Harriet Gardiner, who was not]
her*daUghter, a.-, lias been alleged, but1
iier step-daughter. Lady Harriet wa
but fifteen y.irsc old at the time, and
her father. Lord Blorsl ngton. presented'
the couple with a quartet of .1 uilllloui
dollars on their wadding day.
five years later La.lv Harriet left;
her husband. It Is said because she had]
.'..s. i,v.-red through n packet of letters
? that her marriage had been merely ar
I ranged by her step-mother In order to
Justify d'Orsay-s presi nee In t... family, i
! sho betook herself to Paris, Where she
i achieved considerable success by
! writing novels for the Parisian feulllp
tons. After the ruin ami death of
D'Orsay, she married the sixth barl
> Cowper'a younger brother, the H?h.
? C'r.nrle.i Spencer Cowper, who owned
! Sandranghurri, which he sold to tho
! late King Edward some, fifty odd
j years ago. Charles Cowper. on boeom
! ing a widower, married an American,
j Jessie McLean, only daughter of Col?
onel Cllngton McLean, of Newburgh
j i ti-the-HUdson.
As for Lady Blcsslngton and d'Orsay.
I they continued to live on at K( nslhg
I ton Gore for the nineteen years fol?
lowing Lord B'.csslnirton'.i death In 1M!0.
though owing to the refusal ol his Wife,
Lady Harriot, to divorce htm, he was
j never nble to marry her fascinating
! step-mother In 1849 they were over?
taken by ruin, thanks to their almost
]insane extravagance?an extravagance
1 which won for the countess the name
of "the gorgeous Lady Bleaf'.ngton" and
I to escape their creditors they abnn
I doned Kensington Gore to the bailiffs.
] and sought refuge in Paris.
As both had done much in the way
of hospitality for Louis Napoleon dur
1 ing his long and needy exile In London,
i thoy had some reason to expect that
i they would be klndlv received by htm.
I But he took no notice of their arrival.
and It was not until several weeks
I later that he suddenly found himself
faen to faro with them at a reception
given In his honor us Prince-President
of t.ie Republic. Greeting her coldly,
he exclaimed: "Ah, Lady BlesBlngtout
You here? When do you return to Lon.
don?" To ?hieb she replied with true
Irish wit. "And when do you return?"
An answer which cieated Intense
rmuBcmont nmong all the bystanders,
nnd utterly dlsconcerte 1 Napoleon.
Threo weeks latex she committed
suicide?a fact not generally known?
and was burled In the family tomb of
Count d'Orsay's sister, the Puchesse de
! Orammont. at the letter's country seat
of Chambourey. D'Orsay did not sur
j vlve her very long, dying very suddenly
i on the very day after receiving from
Napoleon the state appointment of
, Director of Pine Arts.
HI In all the stories that I have ever
I heard told of Lady Blesslngton. nnd
I In the plays that have been woven
?around her romance with D'Orsay, I
; have never seen any mention made of
! hlri ? Urions ancestry. His grandmother
I Anna Pranchl by name, was a beautiful
|wcmun of Italian birth, who In her
i younger days was a ballerina. About
I 1770 she became the morg.tnutlc wlfo
? of the then Duke Charles of Wurtem
, berg, by whom she had two children.
; n son. who was accorded by his fa
I tl.cr the name of Eugene de Franque
? mont. and a daughter, who married
