Weber ald to-day i "ft Is true that
In my transactions with Colonel Ma
pleson i gave him a cheek which was
afienvordti atopped. I had certain
private reasons for doing so, but on
tliugthjiiHl I dhcctol my bankers to
ii.iv the amount called for. As Io the
colonel's difficulties at Cincinnati, I
suppose soinothlnir must have rulllcd
him, and ho left tlto hold disgusted.

1 know' the colonel nhvaVHllvcrt well
was, J think, a very moderate amount i

and minor employes, I don't hellovo
that, from Hie fact that he took all his
