This Is What the South Dakota Em*
bezzlement Is Now Said
to Be.
WHAT THE SCHEME WAS
Taylor's Friends Claim the State Will
Not Lose Anything—Bondsmen
Secured,
PIERRE, S. D., Jan. 12.— Later de­
velopments indicate that there was a
large sized conspiracy in the flight of
Treasurer Taylor and the loss to the
state of $350,000. Facts have come into
the possession of the state officials
which make them reasonably certain
that Taylor and certain confederates
deliberately went to work, after it be­
came evident that he could not square
his accounts, to hold tho state up and
compel a compromise, by which he
should be deprived from penalty and
his bondsmen should bo protected
from loss. Tho state was in a hard
place financially. If uot a cent had
been lost thero would have been a de­
ficit on tho first dav of noxt July of
fully $100,000, duo to over appropria­
tions by tho last legislature, and to
the slow payment of taxes on account
Of the short crop of tho year.
Tho imit of Taxation
.has been reached and the limit of in­
debtedness has boon passed for some
time. There were due on Jan. 5 $220,
000 worth of funding warrants held by
Eastern parties. There was due a eon-
Biderable sum on tho coupon bonds,
while the sinking fund was preparing
to take up the semi-annual interest to
the amount of $20,000. The legislature
was in session and immediate calls
would be made on tho treasury for at
least $1500,000. Of course the treasurer
knew all this.
It is believed by tho 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
Seice All the 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, 6ould
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 tlae credit of South Dakota would
s}nk 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 Claim the State Will Not
Loae 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. McMasters, "he turned
all of his assets over to his bondsmen.
1 am sure he will be more 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 state will
not lose a dollar. I am sure that Mr.
Taylor ha3 none of the money with
him, and, for that matter, that he got
very little of it originally. Certain
persons, whose names I do not care to
mention,
Received Host of the Money.
I have been aware of the state of Mr.
Taylor's affairs for four weeks. When
I left Redfield, S. D., in 1890, I re­
signed the position of cashier of the
First National bank of Redfield 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 Quincy street daring 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 $500,000.
These assets have been
and the state will not lose a cent Mr.
Taylor has never speculated except in
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 bank in which he had
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
Wua to give his bondsmen an oppor­
tunity to realise on his assets and ar*
range matters."

HIUNA, Jan. 18.—The Republican
senatorial caucus took five ballots dar­
ing the day and adjourned. The last
ballot stood: Carter, 90 Power, 19

DETECTIVES ON THE TRAIL.
Vive Chicago Slont lii Mearclilnir 1'or Tay­
lor Nttar Tluit City.
CHICAGO, Jan. 12.—Fivo of tho
shrowdest detuct voa in the sorvico of
the city have started on a trail giving
fair promise of leuding to tho hiding
place, probably in Chicago, of W. W.
Taylor, ex-treasurer of South Dakota,
who has absconriod, leaving shortage
in his account* of $!i50.000.
News of tho development that
prompted this action was flashed to
Redfield, S. D., whore Taylor lived,
and while detectives were endeavoring
to find Taylor in Chicago, detectives in
Redfield were trying to unearth tho
story of tho circumstances that caused
one C. H. Vinton of that city to write
to the fugitive at Chicago uuder date
fif Dec. 28:
"I presume when we default in New
York on Jan. 1 in coupons wo will get
wires and the devil will be to pay
about Jan, 3."
Dispatches received in Chicago from
Redfield about "a conspiracy" make
this at least interesting, say tho detec­
tives who have tho matter in charge.
TORONTO AGAIN VISITED.
Another Dlitstatroun ninze Onuses a Loss of
W375.000.
TORONTO, Jan. 12.—A few minutes
before 7 p. in. a blazo was noticed in
Osgoodby's publishing house, noxt to
tho establishment which was destroyed
last Sunday. The flames ate through
tho block south to Wellington street,
burning the largo fur establishment of
Dunnett & Co. Next tho Corticelli
silk warehouse was consumed. Brere
ton & Co., manufacturing agents
Boisseau & Co., wholesale clothing,
and R. Darling, wholesale woolens,
were tho next. The flames then leaped
across the stre to the south sido of
Wellington and destroyed Hart & Rid­
dle's printing establishment and badly
scorched Wylde, Grassett & Co. 's, dry
goods. At this time it was feared that
the whole southern portion of the city
would destroyed, but a deluging
rainstorm set in and provonted the
flames from spreading. Tho loss is
estimated at $375,000. Three persons
were seriously injured by jumping.

Decided to (io Before the Cou ntry on the
Money Issue Alone*
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.—General A.
J. Warner, president of the American
Bi-metallic league, admitted that a
conference of leading bi-metalists 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 there is no hope
of restoring the bi-metallic standard
through the Republican party, nor
through the Democratic party, as that
party is now controlled, 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 the bi-metallic standard as
it was before 1873, on the government
control of the money question."

ran OF A CABLE
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, Jan. 12.—The recom­
mendation made by President Cleve­
land that the United States give its
consent to the construction of a cable
to Hawaii by Great Britain does not
find favor among the Republicans of
the house. Representative Hitt of
Illinois, who is recognized as the Re­
publican leader in the house on foreign
affairs, said that he fully agreed with
the president that tho Hawaiian islands
should have the benefits of telegraphic
communication with tho world at
large, but was strongly opposed to
putting their cable facilities under con­
trol of any government but tho United
States. In the Fifty-first congress Mr.
Hitt offered an amendment to the dip­
lomatic and consular appropriation bill
Providing For a Survey
of a feasiblo route for a cable between
Hawaii and San Francisco, and for the
preliminary steps toward the organiza­
tion of a compauy. On the ground of
economy, tho proposition was defeated
by a small majority, the attendance
being limited. Mr. Hitt is still in favor
of a subsidy for a Hawaiian cable.
"The United States," he says, "con­
trols nio.it of the commerce with the
islands, and should control any cable
company that is to be under govern­
ment domination. With a British
cable this government would be uuder
great disadvantage in case of war or
grave international difficulties. Doubt­
less, Americans would be free to use
the 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 th3 privileges of communi­
cation for naval purposes in the 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 ves el 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 125,000,000
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 Clnb.
NEW YORK, Jan. 12. —The 13th an­
nual meeting and dinner of the Thir­
teen Club will take place at the old
Knickerbocker Cottage, now Jacquin's

longed until 13 minutes past 12 a. in.,
when all present will toast the 13th
birthday of the Thirteen club.
Brutal Husbands.
HARVEY, N. D., Jan. 12.—Two busi­
ness men here are reported to have re­
cently administered sever corporal cor­
rection to their better halves, which
has caused quite a scandal. One of the
ladies, whose husband used a horse
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.
A Brilliant Assemblage.
LONDON, Jan. 12.—A dispatch to The
Daily News from Paris says at the
grand diplomatic dinner given at the
Palace of the Elysea by President
Casimir-Perier, 95 guests were present.
The assemblage was a brilliant one.
Lady Dufferin, wife of the British am­
bassador, sat at the right of the presi­
dent, and Mrs. Eustia, wife of the
American ambassador sat at his left.
New Chief Engineer.
ST. PAUL, Jan. 12.—The Great North­

RLUIOAL CHANGE NEEDED.
The North Dakota Kailroad Commission
Want More
I'over.
BI 3MABOK, N. D., Jan. 12.—In their
report to tho governor the late railroad
commission recommends some radical
changes. They claim that several acts
passed by tho last legislature were im­
practicable because power was not con
fered upon he commission to enforce
them, and say that when tho enforce­
ment of a railroad law is left
to tho county authorities, it is useless to
expect them to bo effectual, because a
sheriff or county attorney is not going
to involve his county in expansive liti­
gation with a wealthy railroad com­
pany. They say the coal rate law was
declared unconstitutional by the attor­
ney general the law to compel a daily
train service was a farce, leaving it to
the roads themselves to determine
whether a daily service was nocessary,
and the "Y" law was a dead letter be­
cause nobody was empowered to en­
force it.
The commission strongly urges tho
necessity of a change in the state con­
stitution to make the board more of a
permanent body.
SHIP T11EIK OWN GRAIN.
North western Antimouopoly Protective
Association Holds Its Amiu.tl Meeting*
GKAND FOUKS, N. D., Jan. 12.—At
the annual meeting of tho Northwest­

salo there or shipment to Europe ac­
cording to the market. A half cent
per bushel is deducted from the
returns to the shipper for all ex­
penses, including agent's salary, stor­
age, insurance, etc. An auxiliary con­
vention has been organized to build a
lar^j .-.tyrage elevator at Duluth, in
order to avoid the possibility of the
"mixing" process which farmers claim
they do with part of their wheat.
Ollic'.'i's were elected lor the year as
follows: President, Colonel A. Knud
son, Grand Forks vicj president, L. C.
Loisven, Grafton secretary, Thomas
Uiven, Grand Forks treasurer, C. W.

ors will get all the assets.
Trains Buried by Landslides.

reported to the house this week. Its
total, as previously stated, is about
9300,000 below the estimates.
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 the past year has shown by
analysis that no less than 17.9 of the
substance examined in 715 analyses
contained objectionable adulteration.
The only American product was dried
fruits, which were prohibited on the
ground of traces of zinc absorbed from
the drying tables. Oil of citron con­
tained of that oil only a few per cent,
the balance being other ingredients and
alcohol.
Foreign Substances in Butter.
Butter, particularly from Austria,
contained coacoanut oil, tallow and
other oils. Textile fabrics were dyed
with poisonous colors and wool stuffs
showed cotton mixtures up to 85 per
cent. Tho 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
mileh proved to be as sour a3 vinegar.
The sweet Tokay wine was adulterated
with large addititions of sugar.
THE RAISING OF DEER.
Consul Sebay Gives Some Pointers on
Protection of This Game.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.—United States
Consul Gemiral 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. It 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 and 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.
How It Could Be Done.
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 York, for example,
the Croton watershed and the Adiron­
dack reservations might be easily used
as deer preserves, and the annual kill­
ing and sale 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 the native deer.
The consul calls attention to the
recklessness with which, in our coun­
try, the wild animals have been de­
stroyed, bringing its own punishment,
and he urges that our river reserva­
tions be stocked with wapiti and 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 and the
parks would be a source of revenue.
WILL WASHBURN WITHDRAW?
A
Rumor to That Effect Current in St.
Panl.
ST. PAUL, Jan 11.—It is rumored
here that Washburn has decided
to withdraw from the senatorial
contest in favor of a new 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 candidate
will be, but rumor is busy with the
name of Charles A. Pillsbury, 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.
