A STATE.M K.Vr FltO.ll IIOT1I 1'AU- tiii.v Till' Public .Can Drnu'Iltn Own In-fereiicci---A Vir Complicated Statement. On aocount of an over-abundanco of other matters yesterday Tub News was unable to get in a statoment of the plaintiffs in reference to tho C. A. Riddle attachment. This morning a reportor intor viewed Mr. R M. Bennett, of Cuero, who is Mr. Walker's representative. This gentleman made the following statement: On February G, 1S93, A. U. Riddlo it Co. purchased oattlo from T. M. Walker to the amount of $21,000, $13,000 of whioh wan due on April 1, and $11,000 on May 1, and was se oured by a mortgage Hon on tho cattle sold. About April b, ltiddle & Co. ship pod about il7,00l) worth of tho cattle to Chicago, giving Mr. Walker a check on tho consignees for $16,500, payment of whioh wis relusou by j them. It seems Riddlo & Co. were ' ln.iAln inn. naH In Ma a nn n e l rt na . n account, and aftor much correspond ence by wire and personal interviews with Mr. Jones, on his return from Chicago, he refused to pay to Mr. Walker any ot the prooeeds of tho salo of tho mortgaged property. Hence the attachment. 1111. jones' statement In an interviowwith Mr, Trar Jones ho made a statoment as follows I notified Messrs. Walker & Bennett on April C that we would ship the oattle on April S, and for them to meot us at Belton from which placo the oattlo wore to be shippod. We had agreed to pay Mr. Walker $21 per head for all cattle shipped and C. L. Shattuok & (Jo., of Chicago bad agreed to pay that draft. Upon Mr. Walker's arrival, or rather after the cattlo had been shipped, ho asked for more than the agreed amount and we gave him a drait for $16,500, which was about $1,4.00 moro than the amount we expected to pay Walker and that muoh more than Shattuok & Co., had agreed to pay. rtidalo &Co., owed Shattuok & Co., about $5,0u0. But it was understood that this was not to be paid out of this consignment. They, nevertheless, de ducted tho amount due them and dishonored the draft. When I learned that the draft had been refused I sent this telegram. T. M Walker, Uonziles We havo balanoe of $12,000 that wo can send you Now York exchange for and will arrange balance. Travis Jones. This was done at tho solicitation of Mr. Bennett and elicited tho following reply from their bankers who held tho papers. TraTls Jonfs, Waco T. M. Walker will be in Waoo this cvoning, anv settlement you make with W. S. Fly will bo satisfactory. G. N. DiLLWOivrn. I offered in the prosenco of Mr. Sullivan, of tho Waco Stato bank, to pay thorn .12,000 cash and give am ple security for the balanoe whioh I undorstand they say 1 refused to do. On this hinges the whole suit. Mr. Sullivan corroborated all that Mr. Jones said and lurthor statod that had Mr. Jones not already telegraph ed to Chicago to have the drnft for tho amount forwarded tho chock for the amount would have been honored at his bank.

Thoo curious in such matters shou'd observe the cele brated work now boing done on the front of the now fire ongine houso on Washington stroet by the Waoo Cor nioe works.
