WHAT THE SCHEME WAS
Taylor's Friends Claim the State Will
Not Lose Anything—IJondsmen
Secured.
PIERRB, S. D., Jan. 12.—Later de­
velopments indicate that there was a
large sized conspiracy in the flight of
Treasurer Taylor and tlio loss to the
etato of $350,000. Facts have come into
tho possession of the stato officials
which make them reasonably certain
that Taylor and certain confederates
deliberately went to work, after it be­
came evident that ho could not square
his accounts, to hold tho stato up and
compel a compromise, by which he
should bo deprived from penalty and
his bondsmen should bo protected
from loss. Tho stato was in a hard
place financially. 11' not a cent had
been lost there would have been a de­
ficit on tho first day of next July of
fully §100,000, due to over appropria­
tions by the last legislature, and to
tho slow payment of taxes on account
Of the short crop of the year.
Tlie limit of Taxation
.has been readied aiid the limit of in­
debtedness has been passed for some
time. There wcro due on Jan. 5 $220,
000 worth of funding warrants held by
Eastern parties. There was due a con­
siderable sum on tho coupon bonds,
wliilo the sinking fund was preparing
to take up the semi-annual interest to
the amount of §20,000. The legislature
was in session and immediato calls
would be made on tho treasury for at
least $300,000. Of course the treasurer
knew ail this.
It is believed by the authorities, on
substantial evidence, that, realizing
that he would be short $100,000 when
the transfer was to be made on the
8th, he consulted with some of his
friends and backers and they decided
that the best thing to do was
Seize A11 tho Money in the Treasury
and put it in a place of hiding, where
it could be gotten at when desired.
Then when the default was discovered
the state would be found bankrupt. It
could not pay its obligations, and, hav­
ing exceeded its limit of debt, could
not borrow. Were it to sue on the
bonds of the treasurer two years or
more would elapse before any money
could be recovered, and during that
time the credit of South Dakota would
sink very low. The parties to the plan
concluded that rather than let this
come to pass the state officers would do
almost anything within reason. Then
the plan was to come forward, through
an agent, and propose to pay back to
the state the $250,000 which the trea­
surer had carried off on condition that
the bondsmen should be released and
that Taylor should be relieved from
further prosecution.
TAYLOR WAS IN CHICAGO.
His Friends Clnim the State Will Not
Lose Anything.
CHICAGO, Jan. 12.—W. McMaster,
secretary of the Western Homestead
and Irrigation company, with offices
in this city, said that he had seen Will­
iam Walter Taylor, the missing -trea­
surer of South Dakota, when Mr. Tay­
lor was in Chicago Jan. 1. "At that
time," said Mr. McAllisters, "he turned
all of hi* assets over to his bondsmen.
1 am sure he will be moro than able to
meet the deficiency left in the state
treasury. He has assets for double the
amount required, but on account of the
shrinkage in values will not be able to
realize on them at once. The stato will
not lose a dollar. I am sure that Mr.
Taylor lias none of the money with
him, and, for that matter, that he got
very little of it originally. Certain
persons, whoso names I do not care to
mention,
Keceivod Meat of the Money*
I have been aware of the state of Mr.
Taylor's affair.- for lour weeks. When
I left Redfield, S. D., in 181)0, I re­
signed tho position of cashier of the
First National bank of Red field of
which Mr. Taylor was president. We
were closely associated in business af­
fairs, and, from the fact that we were
warm friends, he wrote to me concern­
ing the state of affairs before he left
Pierre. Mr. Taylor called at my office
in Qtiincy street during the last two
weeks, and I think he called again
when I was not here. In the last
three months Mr. Taylor has made
strenuous efforts to realize on assets
consisting of real estate and first mort­
gages to the amount of $600,000.
These assets have been
Turned Over to His Bondsmen
and the state will not lose a cent. Mr.
Taylor has never speculated except in
a legitimate manner. The shortage
amounts to upwards of $800,000, $100,
000 of which can be traced to failures
of the Chemical National bank of this
and other banks in which he had
tivj
deposited state funds.
"I do not know where Mr. Taylor is
now, and do not know how long he re­
mained in Chicago. He is not far
away and the only reason he left Pierre
was to give his bondsmen an oppor­
tunity to realize on his assets and ar­
range matters."

DETECTIVES ON THE TRAIL
five Chicago SI«uth- Searching Kor Tay­
lor Near That City.
CuiCAao, Jan. 12.— Five of tho
shrewdest (letuct.voi in the servico of
the city havo started on a trail giving
fair promise of leading to tho hiding
placo, probably in Chicago, of W. W.
Taylor, ex-treasurer of South Dakota,
who lias absconded, leaving a shortage
in his account-! of $1350.000.
Nows of tho development that
prompted this action was flashed to
Redfield, S. D., where Taylor lived,
and while detectives wore endeavoring
to find Taylor in Chicago, detectives in
Redfield were trying to unoarth tho
Btory of the circumstances that caused
ono C. II. Vinton of that city to writo
to the fugitive at Chicago under data
®f Dec. 28:
"I presume when we default in New
York on Jan. 1 in coupons wo will got
wires and tho devil will bo to pay
about Jau. 3."
Dispatches recoived in Chicago from
Redfield about "a conspiracy" make
this at least interesting, say tho detec­
tives who have the matter in charge.

TORONTO, Jan. 12.—A few minutes
betore 7 p. m. a blazo was noticed in
Osgoodby's publishing houso, next to
tho establishment which was destroyed
last Sutiday. The flames ate through
the block south to Wellington street,
burning tho largo far establishment of
Dunnett & Co. Next tho Cortieelli
silk warehouse was consumed. Brore
ton & Co., manufacturing agents
Boisseau & Co., wholesale clothing,
and 11. Darling, wholesale woolens,
were the next. The flame then leaped
across the slre.'t to tho south side of
Wellington aud destroyed Hart. & Rid­
dle's printing establishment and badly
scorched VVyldc, Grassett & Co. 's, dry

the wholo southern port-ion of the city
would lo destroyed, but a deluging
rainstorm set in ami prevented the
flames from spreading. Tho loss is
estimated at $375,000. Three persons
were seriously injured by jumping.
lir-MKTALI.IC CONFIS HENCE.
Decided to Go Ii»fore the Country on tlio
Money Issno Alone*
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.—General A.
J. Warner, president of the American
Bi-nietallic league, admitted that a
conference of leading bi-motalists from
different parts of the country had been
held in this city recently. In this con­
nection he said:
"It was the decision of the confer­
ence that a strong and growing senti­
ment is manifesting itself in favor of
unity for the friends of bi-metalism, in
a bi-metallic party, and to appeal di­
rectly to the people on the money issue
alone. The consideration which seems
to be leading to this result is the wide­
spread conviction that thero is no hope
of restoring the bi-metallic staudard
through the Republican party, nor
through the Democratic party, as that
party is row coutrolled, and, on the
Other hand, that it is equally impossi
ble to accomplish this result within the
lines of the Populist party or to unite
on the Omaha platform, those in favor
of restoring tho bi-metallic standard as
it was before 1873, on tho government
control of the money question."
Korthvrest Board of Trade.
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 12.—From present

MAH!r-~"-
her of
Republican Congressmen Do Not Be­
lieve Great Britain Should Build
One to Hawaii,
IT WOULD NOT BE POLITIC.
This Government Should, However,
Get to Work and Build
One for Itself.
WASHINGTON, Jau. 12.—The recom­
mendation made -by President Cleve­
land that tho United States give its
consent to tho construction of a cable
to Hawaii by Great Britain does not
find favor among tho Republicans of
the houso. Representative Hitt of
Illinois, who is recognized as tho Re­
publican leader in the house on foreign
affairs, said that ho fully agreed with
the president that the Hawaiian islands
should havo the benefits of telegraphic
communication with tho world at
largo, but was strongly opposed to
putting their cable facilities under con­
trol of any government but the United
States. In the Fifty-first congress Mr.
Hitt offered an amendment to tho dip­
lomatic and consular appropriation bill
Providing l'"or a Survey
of a feasible route for a eablo between
Hawaii and San Francisco, and for the
preliminary steps toward the organiza­
tion of a company. On the ground of
economy, the proposition was defeated
by a small majority, the attoudanco
being limited. Mr*. Hitt is still in favor
of a subsidy for a Hawaiian cable.
"The United States," he says, "con­
trols most of the commerce with the
islands, and should control any cablo
company that is to bo under govern­
ment domination. With a British
cable this government would be under
great disadvantage in case of war or
grave international difficulties. Doubt­
less, Americans would bo free to use
tho cable for commercial purposes, but
it is doubtful whether wo would be
permitted to send messages in cipher
and treaty arrangements would be im­
practicable by which this government
would have tin privileges of communi­
cation for naval purposes in tho time
of war or other troubles.
As an Illustration.
"Great Britain maintains a cable be­
tween Bermuda and Nova Scotia,
which does not begin to pay for its
maintenance," he said, by way of illus­
tration. "Bermuda is a great strate­
gical point, with a powerful fortress.
Americans can order onions by that
cable, but Secretary Herbert could not
request one of our ships to put dyna­
mite on a British vessel and blow her
up, in the event such a proceeding was
deemed advisable."
This was, of course, said to illustrate
his point. Had there been cable com­
munication with the United States the
complications in Hawaii of the past
two years would have been greatly
simplified and partly averted, Mr. Hitt
says. He declares it to be a doubtful
form of economy to expend $35,000,000
annually for the maintenance of a navy
and neglect comparatively small ex­
penditures for the control of vessels, by
which they could be effectually handled
and kept under working orders by the
home government.
Thirteenth For the Thirteen Club.
NEW YORK, Jan. 12. —The 13th an­
nual meeting and dinner of the Thir­
teen Club will ta'ie place at the old
Knickerbocker Cottage, now Jaequin's

longed until 13 minutes past 12 a. m.,

birthday of the Thirteen club.
Brutal Husbands.
HARVEY, N. D., Jan. 12.—Two busi­

whip on her, according to common re­
port, was so mortified that she took a
dose of aconite, and her life was only
saved by vigorous remedies.

BI 5SI\ROK, N. D., Jan. 12.—In their
report to the governor tho late railroad
commission recommends some radical
changes. They claim that several acts
passed by tho last legislature wore im­
practicable because power was not con
fered upon ho commission to enforco
them, and say that when tho enforce­
ment of a railroad law is left
to tho county authorities, it is use'ess to
expect them to bo effectual) because a
sheriff or county attornoy is not going
to involve his county in expensive liti­
gation with a wealthy railroad com­
pany. They say the coal rate law was
declared unconstitutional by tho attor­
ney general the law to compel a daily
train service was a farce, leaving it to
the roads themsolves to determino
whether a daily servico was necessary,
and the "Y" law was a dead letter be
causo nobody was empowered to en­
force it.
Tho commission strongly urges the
necessity of a chaugo in tho stato con­
stitution to make the board more of a
permanent body.

IT ENTIRELY FOB!
Extent to Which Adulteration
of Food Is Carried on in
Germany.
EVERYTHING IS IMPURE,
Adulteration So Well Done
That Merchants Cannot
Detect It.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.—It is to be
hoped that American food products are
purer than those sold in Germany, for
according to a special report submitted
to the department of state by Consul
Stevens at Annaberg, the Society for
the Prevention of Adulteration, of Sax­
ony, in tho past year has shown by
analysis that no less than 17.9 of the
substance examined in 715 analyses
contained objectionib'o adulteration.
The only Amorican product was dried
fruits, which were prohibited on the
ground of traces of zinc absorbed from
tho drying tables. Oil of citron con­
tained of that oil only a few per cent,
tho balance being other ingredients and
alcohol.
Iforoiftii Substances in flutter*
Butter, particularly from Austria,
contain::.I coacoannt oil, tallow and
other oils. Textile fabrics were dyed
with poisonous colors and wool staffs
showed cotton mixtures up to 85 per
cent. The spices in which meats had
been prepared contained tannin, sau­
sages living parasites. Fruit juices
were colored with chemicals. A sam­
ple of coffee was impregnated with a
filthy ingredient. Rye flour was adul­
terated with rice flour, buckwheat flour
with starch.
Bran was a composition of wheat
bran, rye bran, sand, dust, mites and
mite eggs, Olive oil was found to be
nothing but rape seed oil perfumed
with rosemary oil. So well was the
adulteration made that even experi­
enced merchants could not detect it.
What was sold as Rhenish Leibfran
milch proved to be as sour as vinegar.
The sweet Tokay wine was adulterated
with large addititious of sugar.
THE RAISING OF IEliR.
Consul Delay Gives Some Pointer* on
Protection of This Game.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.—UnitedStates
Consul General Dekay at Berlin, has
come forward in a report to the state
department, with a novel proposition
that should command immediate at­
tention on the part of social economists
as well as of sportsmen. He says the
abundance and excellence of venison
connot fail to impress persons who live
in German cities. Tt is a common dish
all the year around, and its price is so
moderate that only the poorest classes
fail to taste it now and then. The rea­
son for this is the high cultivation of
forestry and the care with which deer
are bred, fed and protected from poach­
ers. Considering the excellence of ven­
ison as food aud the small cost of rear­
ing deer under protection, it is, in
America especially, that steps to form
practical deer parks might be easy and
of profit.
Ilow It Could Be Dane.
In the neighborhood of great cities
the supply of water has to be regulated
by the preservation of large districts of
more or less mountainous and woody
country. In New Yorlc, for example,
the Croton watershed and the Adiron­
dack reservations might be easily used
as deer preserves, and the annual kill­
ing and side of animals of the proper
sort would furnish an income far be­
yond the aggregate salaries of over­
seers, foresters and guards. In Ger­
many great success has attended
the crossing of the American
wapiti, with tho native deer.
The consul culls attention to thu
recklessness with which, in our coun­
try, the wild animals have been de­
stroyed, bringing its own punishment,
and he urges that onr river reserva­
tions be stocked with wapiti aud vir­
gin deer, and the herds then regularly
decimated to supply the markets with
cheap and wholesome food. By a mod­
erate gun license, also, sportsmen
would derive much pleasure aud the
parks would be a source of revenue.
WILL WASHBURN WITHDRAW?

ST. PAUL, Jan 11.—Ir, is rumored
here that Washburn has decided
to withdraw from tho senatorial
contest in favor of anew man and that
himself and his managers will devote
all their energies and influences to his
election. Washburn men are bitter
against Nelson and will, it is said, vote
for any other candidate in order to de­
feat him. It has not as yet been an­
nounced who the Washburn eaudidate
will be, but rumor is busy with the
name of Charles A. Pillsbnry, and
there is but little doubt that before the
week is out Mr. Pillsbury's name will
take the place of that of Washburn in
opposition to Nelson.
