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

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
