THEY ARE BOTH GONE. AM So is the Money Entrusted to Their Care. ' SAYS HE . . IS COMING BACK. A New York Defaulter is Getting Tired .of Canada TENDER-HEARTED JUDGE. He Sheds Tears While He Is Sentenc ing a Murderer to Be Hanged . Heavy Gas Explosion. Charlotte, N. C, Dec. 3. It was learned here yesterday that J. M. Ben son, treasurer of Bladen county, had ab sconded with $6000 of the county's money. Benson has for several years held the position of treasurer of this county, and for the past two years has been largely engaged in the merchantile business at Elizabeth port. His store has been the headquarters for the al liance of Bladen county. Several days ago it was learned that Benson was short in his accounts, and in consequence of the rumors that were afloat the county commissioners bad called a meeting for yesterday, and Benson was to appear before them for an investigation. The commissioners met according to agree ment, but found out soon after that Benson had disappeared during the night. It is thought by many that the money the county will lose will be a comparatively small sum compared to the sum that Benson owes the farmers of Bladen county. As he always has . been highly respected and above sus picion, the farmers would put whatever money they did not need in his hands, he paying them good interest, but seldom paying the principal, and in this way quite a large sum must have been in his hands at . the time of his departure. There seems to be little doubt that Ben son has appropriated at least $10,000 ' of other people's money to the exclusive, benefit of himself. 'Much excitement exists over his sudden disappearance, but those most interested have not the least idea where be has pitched his tent. Telegrams have been sent in every direc tion for apprehension of , the fleeing treasurer,- but nothing has been heard of him. .. 1 . Had Better Not Return. New York, Dec. 3. The rumor that John C.

He placed no faith in the story, for it was one, that bad frequently been circu lated within the last four or five years. There was one thing District 'Attorney Nicoll would say, and that was that if Eno did return he, the district attorney,, would promise the fugitive alivelv time.. If Mr. Nicoll remembered rightly, the-, evidence was mostly documentary and. that always' lives. , . The Judge Shed Tears. Union, Or.,. , Dec. 3. Judge Fee, of the circuit court, last night sentenced Evan Carver, who was found guilty of murder in the first degree, to be hanged,, the execution to take place in the jail yard on January 21, 1892.
