GREER COUNTY ALL RIGHT
Chicago, Illinois, " April 17.
The publishers of legal news in this
city are being fairly besieged with ap
plications from lawyer and persons
interested in building and loan socie
ties throughout the country for copies
of Judge Dunne's recent decision la the
Forester's building and loan associa
, lion against the bondsmen of its treas
urer. The case Is one involving the liabil
ity of the treasurers of such associa
tions and the decision rendered this
week has attracted the attention of
building and loan association subscrib
es throughout the country because of
the belief it has created inat tf the
decision, if, upheld by the higher courts,
will rtmuve in a great measure the
responsibility of the association's ofll
. cers for the funds deposited in their
In 1892, the treasurer of the Fores
ters' association deposited funds in a
private - bank,, an hour before the
bank closed its doors. The association
lost 5,000 by the failure, and it
brought suit against the treasurer and
The bond provided for the safe keep
ing of the funds by the treasurer and
guaranteed the turning over of the
money to bis successor in office. The
evidence showed that the money wai
deposited in the name of the associa
tion, but subject to the order of its
treasurer. The court consequently
held that this was a turning over, ac
cording to the terms of the bond, ana
decided for the defendants.

An Illegitimate Son I. Helped Out of Orav
JSkw York. ti. Y., April 17
A London dispatch says: A case al.
most without parallel is just now at
trading wide attention both in tbe
clubs and in police circles. About
month ago, - a distinguished- looking
foreigner, who gave his name as
Adolpb Beck, wa convicted at tbe Old
Bailey and sentenced to seven years'
imprisonment on the charge of robbing
and defrauding no less than ten
women. His modus operandi was to
haunt fashionable stores and prome
nades in the west end, make the ac
quaintance of ; young - widow and
others, get himself mvl(ed to their
homes, represent bimself as a member
of the peerage, and then make away
with all tbe jewelry add other valu.
ables in their apartments that he could
lay his baods on. - i
On the trial, each woman positively
identified him, and the detectives tea
tified that four years ago he was sen
tenced to nine months' imprisonment
for a similar effence. It now turns out
that tbe convicted man's lawyers have
sent a statement to -the borne olnoe
setting forth that he is coo ore ted bp
birth witb tbe court f bwedeu; tbat
he was not in England at the time of
bis previous conviction, and that in the
recent trial he ires the victim of mis
taken identification. ; It is also under
stood that tba home department has
entered into communication with King
Oscar, of Sweden, on the eubj ct of
tbe prisoner's identity, Aba tbe gossip
at the clubs has it that he Is the illegiti
mate son of parties very close to the
Swedish throne.: On the trial, be re
fused to make any statement concern
ing bis antecedents, but it is significant
tbat a few days after bis conviction,
tbe bank with which be had done
business received a large sum from
Stockholm to be placed to his credit.
"." " JOINT DEBATE.
BetwMn Stat. Unlvenltle. of MlnnesoU and
,.. , . Wisconsin.. -.-- :.
Minneapolis, Minn., April 17
Young collegians will turn out in force
in the University cbtpel, tbis evening,
for the great annual joint debate be
tween tbe representatives of tbe uni
versities of Minnesota and ; Wisconsin,
and additional interest attaches to the
event from the fact that each univer
sity scored at the two preceding de
bates, and that consequently this one
will decide the tie.
The question to he argued indicates
that the young men. pj ihesfiutirgi, great
institutions of learning are doing some
decidedly lively thinking on a matter
rf grave national import. Jt . is as
follows.:. ',. "Would rrbb'iound policy
for congress to legalizi contracts for
the division of competitive freight
earnings of railway companies engaged
ia interstate commerce, provided tbat
all such pooling contracts before going
into effeot shall be filed with the inter
state commerce commission, which
shall have the power "to suspend or
abrogate suoh oontraots Whensoever,'
in the opinion of such commission,
said contracts are detrimental to pub
lic policy P"

indefinitely postponed on account of
tbe eleventh-hour dedication of the
