Smiiggling Conducted by a
New York Firm.
A WHOLE MINT OF MONEY IN IT.
The Expose Said to be the Work
of a Discharg-ed Employe of
Allard & Sons.
I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald. 1
New York, April o.—Treasury agents
have discovered that extensive smug
gling operations have been carried on
t hrougb the firm of Allard A Sons, of
Ptris and New York, dealers in antique
furniture, printings, tapestries, etc. Fine
hangings, valuable oil paintings and the
like have been brought in, concealed in
the seats of old furniture, under the
backs of old mirrors, etc., escaping duty.
Many of these valuable articles were
subsequently sold at full value to inno
cent purchasers, including members of
the Vanderbilt snd Asior families.
It is believed the frauds will aggregate
a quarter of a million dollars, 'this fact
and the hitherto high standing of Allard
& Sons have made the matter highly
sensational, and it is the genaral topic of
ion vers it ion to-day.
The evidence is regarded as conclusive
by the treacury agents. It is not expect
ed that anything further will be done in
the matter until Secretary Windom is
heard from. The facts in the case are
embodied in a report sent to Washington
last night. No arrests have yet been
At the warerooms of Allard & Son this
morning. W. H. Secor, counsel for the
Allards and Roulez's agents, said: "This
whole affair is an outrage on a most re
spe stable firm and the result will show
the Allards innocent of any attempt to
defraud the Government. It is the work
of a discharged employe, who has cun
ningly taken advantage of the fact that
all the members of the firm are absent
in Paris, preparing for the coming exhi
"They were aware it was coming,"
continued Secor, "and two weeks ago
•ailed Koulez to consult with me in re
gard to it. They were put on their guard
by a letter received from B. Lassier.the
discharged agent and instigator of the
present proceedings, and this letter will
form an important part of the defense.
My clients are prepared to furnish bonds
to any amount to secure tbe government
for the alleged duties of which it is said
to have been defrauded."
A.TIFKII A> VINES
.■Uglily Appreciated In France as
Washington, April s.—ln a report to
the State Depaitment, George W. Roose
velt, Consul at Bordeaux, gives statistics
relative to the wive harvest of France.
The vintage of 1888 amounted to 797,
--707,000 gallons, an increase of 151,874,000
over 1887, although 35,000 gallons less
than the average of the last ten years.
Much of the good result of tbe last vin
tage is due to American vines. The
vineyards of the Midi were the first to
suffer from the invasion of phylloxera,
and tbe viticulturists of that section were
the first to employ American vines to
combat its ravages. Their value is most
emphatically demonstrated in the last
In many locilities entire vineyards
have been replanted in these vines, upon
which the French have been grafted.
The greater part of these vines were in
full bearing in 1868, and not only excited
the admiration of all, but the eager de
sire in the proprietors, who up to this
time rejected the American vines as a
means of saving their vineyards. The
demand for American vines is greater
than the supply. Nurseries are very
soon exhausted. At present the nursery
men are busy grafting slips, so that next
year the supply will equal the demand.
It is not too much to say that in the near
future the famous vineyards of the Midi
will again produce as generously as in
the most favored years.

SrocKTON.CaI., April 5. —F. Maskop and
bride of yesterday, arrived here from
Brighton last night. While out walking
this morning she gave him the eiip, and
went to police headquarters. She said
she didn't like her husband, and wanted
protection. She was put under care of a
conductor and sent to Sacramento. Her
husband took the matter philosophically,
remarking that there were plenty of fish
left in the sea, and went on the same
train, but did not speak to her. She is a
good-looking young blonde, whose maiden
name was Mamie Payne. Her father has

Stanley and Emm.
Brussels, April s.—The report that
Henry M. Stanley and Emm Pasha are
marching toward Zanzibar is believed in
official circles. Surprise is expressed
that Emm Pasha should have abandoned
the Lake Provinces. The ivory in pos
session of the party is estimated to be
worth 3,000,000 francs.
London, April s.—The Royal Geo

from Henry M. Stanley. The contents
consist chiefly of n report on the geo
graphical results of the explorer's march.
The letter wili be read at the meeting of

alighted in the street and were captured.
The town reservoir, where the bays
built fires after 12 o'clock, was thick
with geese, and mauy were killed.

Poor People's Chances.
Some years ago a city missionary was
crossing one of the parks in New York
on ).he Sabbath day and said to a lad,
"What are you doing here, breaking the
Lord's day? You onght to be at church
and worshipping God instead of break
ing the Sabbath in this way." The poor
lad in his rags looked up at the city mis
sionary and s.iid: "Oh, sir, it's very easy
for you to talk that way, but God knows
that we poor chaps ain't got no chance."
The sentiment seems to be growing
that in the United States the time has
arrived when "the poor chapsdan't have
There is some truth in it. The poor
are not shut out from making a liveli
hood, but the gulf between riches and
poverty continually grows more difficult
to cross. As the country becomes
densely populated keen business com
petition decreases the chances for accum
ulating wealth by ordinary busiuees
But the same conditions vastly improve

True merit, in commodity or ability,

What a marvelous success has attended
the thorough introduction to the world
of the merits of that wonderful remedy
for kidney disease—Warner's Safe Cure.
Hon. H. H. Warner first came to know
of its curative power by being restored to
health from what the doctors pronounced
a fatal kidney trouble. He concluded
the world ought to know of it, and in the
ten years since he began its mantra 'tine
he has spent millions of dollars in adver
tising the Safe Cure.
His methods have been ingenious—
sometimes, perhaps, open to criticism,
but they had a purpose, which has been
But mark! he never would have
secured a four-fold return of the vast
sums thus expended if the real merit of
the remedy had not been fully proven to
the millions of people reached by his ad
Ten years of increasing success of
Warner's Safe Cure is due, first, to in
telligent and pleasing advertising, by
which the people were made acquainted
with the remedy. Second, to tne true
worth of the remedy, proved by actual
experience, showing it to be the only
specific for kidney disease, and all dis
eases growing out of kidney derange
Mr. Warner has something the people
want, tells them so, then proves it to
their satisfaction —success follows as a
matter of course.
