RICHMOND NEWS ANtnOSSIP The Trial of Jacobs, of Bogus Bonds Fame. JANITOR VICTIMIZED Com m Union rr Of Agriculture HnR Arranged to IIhyc Virgin In miner? als Exhibited at Purls ? Inquiries For Copper l.aoda ? Gold Bearing (.mm Wanted? The Newport News Abattoir?Bis Collections. ? I Rlchmona, Va., June 21.?Mr. Joslah Ryland, second auditor of State, re? ceived a letter to-day from Attorney Tyler, who represents the brokerage Arm which recently advanced money on bogus Virginia bonds, stating that he did not thlnU It necessary that the 6econd Auditor be present to-morrow when the trial of Jacobs, to whom the money was advanced, begins. The letter stated that Jocbbs did not deny having uttered the bonds, but did deny all knowledgo of their spuri ousness. He has rcvcral times used them as collateral. It Is not believed at the capltol that Jacobs knew of the bogus character of the bonds. Walker Howard, the old negro Janitor at the capltol, who conducts visitors through the building, detailing the facts and the fiction of history, was re? cently victimized by the coupons of, these bogus bonds. He conducted a party of Roston tourists through the capltol, and when they were leaving, one gentleman gave him coupons for which Walker was informed the State Treasurer would give him tliO. The old negro went over to Treasurer Har man's office In u hurry, thinking lie had secured a highly valuable wind? fall. Mr. Harman told him bis coupons were worthless, they having been clip pod from the bogus bonds. Walker has no other idea than that the tourist left Roslou with the llxed intention of victimizing him. There tire Virginia bonds of this bo? gus character outstanding to the amount of about JtOO.ooo. As has been stated, they are the bonds which were engraved in 1S.S3 for the State by the Kendol Bank Note Company, of New York, and were rejected 'by the Sinking Fund Commissioners. All the rest of the bonds engraved, as well as the plates, were destroyed. VIRGINIA MINERALS'AT PARIS.

INQUIRIES FOR COPPER LANDS. Commssloner Kolner received a letter to-day from a syndicate of Now York capitalists, asking if there could be se? cured in ths State lands containing cop? per deposits. The writer seemed to be very anxious to obtain Virginia copper mines. GOLD WANTED. Mr. Kolner also received a letter from a Baltimore company inquiring as to gold deposits In this State, and asking if the land could be obtained at a figure which would justify Its pur? chase. Mr. Koiner will make Inquiries concerning Hie aubjeut matter of each letter before replving. CAPITOL NOTES.

Commissioner W. H. Milton, of Flor? ida, has written to Governor Tyler I asking for full Information concerning! the Slate Reformatory at Laurel. Flor? ida has just recently started a similar I institution, and the management is anxious to obtain all the Information possible concerning the operation of the | Virginia Reformatory. THE NEWPORT NEWS ABATTOIR Mr. Allan Crutchfleld, financial agent of the Newport Newa Abattoir Com? pany, said this morning the plant would be in operation by the 1st of October. The concern expects to compete ac? tively with the Armours, Swift? nnd I Cudahy. Mr. Crutchfleld says it will | be the largest abattoir east of Chicago, and will give the consumers of the East exceptional advantages. The 6nme freight rates now given to Western packers have been guaranteed for ten years. Another advantage is the sav? ing In Ice, meat coming from the West having to be re-Iced four or five times. The Newport News company expects to go Into the West Indian and foreign trade also. It is stated that 10,000 or 11.000 car loads of cattle annually go West from Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee, much of which would bring better orices if a murket is afforded nearer home.
