JONES TO (HANDLER
The Furnirr Give* a Piere of His Min.l
lu Kriptril tu the Latter.
Pittsiur«;»«. I»ecember i—In hü» re
cent letter to the Boston HrraitJ, e.\-Secre
tary Chandler said: After the Presiden
tial election the Chairman of the National
Committee was indiscreet enough, in a
published interview, to impnte to Presi
dent Arthur and the members of lus Cab
inet a want of fidelity and zeal in the can
vm This charge wm baseless, and was
so declared by me at the time.
All possible and appropriate assistance was
rendered. It could not have been ex
pected that all should supersede the chair*
man. or do his work, although it would
have been better if some one had done so."
A reporter of the Pitts harp h I 'omm*-niai
called upon Mr. B. K. Jones, the
(. hairaian or the National Committee, and
asked him what he had to say in reply to
this paragraph.
.Mr. Jones said: "The statements made
by me in the interview referred to bv .Mr.
Chandler I theu considered u«ve*arv and
proper to moke, and now as then know
them to be true. The purport of these
statements was that if Mr. Aithnr and
members of his cabinet. with a few excep
tions, had been as loyal to Mr. Blaine as
Mr. Blaine would have been to Mr. Arthur
had the latter been nominated. Mr. Blaine
would have been President. So far as Mr.
Chandler's reference to me personally,
is concerned, 1 do not feel called upon
to defend myself. I have no taste
for. nor do I see any present occasion fora
discussion as to political methods with
one whose plans and proposals, daring the
brief intercourse I had with him in the
campaign of IsM, were not such as to
commend him to those having the success
of the Republican party at heart. His
criticisms at that time of men then the
mart prominent in the party do not seem
to me quite consistent with bis present ex
pressions of regret in retcard to bad feeling
between public men. I would not like to
feel called upon to make pablic the facts
upon whieh my opinion of Mr. Chandler is
based.

A WAGON LOAD OF GOLD.
The L. A X. Tender* Payment Bat The
K. V. Won't Sell.
Lexixotox. Ky., December 2.—Parties
representing the Louisville and Nashville
Railroad arrived here yesterday on a special
train with $520,000 in gold, guarded by a
posse with Winchester rifles, and tendered
it in payment for the Kentucky Union
Railroad, claiming that they had the right
to purchase in a given time which had not
expired. Tbev took the money to the City
Natisnal Bank, but it was refused. After
the refusal it was again loaded in an ex
press wagon and taken back to the cars
and returned to Louisville, where it was
guarded in the car during the night
There is a prospect of a big suit. {The
parties tendering the money were Mr.
Baxter, a Nashville lawyer, accompanied
by A. M. Shook. John A. Id man and
James H. Warner, directors of the Louis
ville and Nashville road.
NOHODX'S DARLING
»Vhy tlio Senatorial Candidat«»« Cannot
Claiiu ltlaine'* Support.
New yokk, December 2.—irr. Iilaine
is in hiding. Iu the fight for United
Stat** Seuatorship the mau from Maine
lias iK* vet declared himself iu favor of
either Mr. Morton, Mr. Miller or Mr. His
cock. And the fun of it is Mr. Morton,
Mr. Miller and Mr. Hiscock are said to be
glad of it on the quiet.
This may seem strauge, but the fact is
that the republican members of the Legis
lature are not all ol one mind us regards
the Plumed Knight. It would take a
pretty thorough canvass to tell just who
the men are that cau 1* reached through
his induence, and it is pretty certain that
if he shows his hand early in the canvass
opposition will start up iu unexpected
quarters. Each of the three candidates
is s:iid, however, to be anxious to luve it
understood among Blaine iueu that Blaine
Is with him. and Words to that effect are
whispered by the faithful with a caution
not to give it away.
"How about this 'I would aud I woldn't'
felling which the three candidates are said
to have regarding Mr. Blaine's support of
their canvass?" asked the Herald reporter
of a man who never misses a National or
State Convention.
"Perhaps each of them may tbiuk that
Blaine's announced support wouldn't help
them any. Every one of the twenty Ke
publican Senators, however, is a Blaine
man. or supposed to be, and of the seven
ty-four Republican Assemblymen I guess
the majority will be lor Blaine iu IsSs.
Still it may In- a wise move not to let it be
thought that he cares to have anything to
do with the selection of a lnit«-d State«
Senator. That would l»c interfering with
State politics, and that is something that
t|je people of this State don't like on the
pirt of a Federal official or any outsider."
"If Blaine's influence Ls uot regarded a
I (jaugerons thin«: why do all the candidates
tight shy of acknowledging that it is for
I them?"
j "Because none of them are sure which
I is Bl line's favorite. He is in a delicate
, position, I tell yon, as all three men are
! great friends of his, and he ran away from
j here rather that make a choice."
"Blaiue ran away?"
j "Yes; he 'skipped the town.' as thev
say. right after Mr. Arthur's funeral, to
I escape from Mr. Morton, Mr. Miller and
Mr. Hiscock. They all went lor him at
! once with pleas for support, and to get
out of the hole, I am credibly told. Mr.
Biaine went away three days lielbre*he in
I tended to wheu he came here."
"Do yon think it one of th«_* rand itl.it«»*
had caught the slippery gentleman from
j Maine he would have m ado it public?"
Not exactly public, but he would have
j used the ta< t where it would do most
jgood."
Mr. Morton has evidently the lead in
the Senatorial race. Mr. Sliller is second,
it being delivered that he has not even the
strength claimed by his most lukewarm
supporters. And Mr. Hiscock is regarded
as being witboat any chance at all. but
striviug bord to make a good showing
now so that he can demand the nomination
when Mr. Evarts' term expires.
C OLONEL MORRISON.
! Hin Explanation of the Opposition to Hi*
Tari IT Bill.
Washington, December 2.—Iu an in
j terview with a reporter. Col. Morrison
j says: "There is just the same necessity
for tariff legislation now that there was in
: the first session of the present Congress;
in fact, it Ls more urgent as we approach
: the time when there will be no del* to
: which we cau apply the surplus revenue."
; In reply to a question as to the chances
j for passage of his tariff reform bill. Mor
rison says he has no reason to l»clieve that
the views of the members of the House
were change«! since they refused last session
: to consider the bill. Hu own impression
was that those who opposed the bill at the
last session would coutiuue their opposi
tion in the hope that at some futnre time
J they could get a revision more satis
j factory to them—a revision in which as in
; the last one, they would consent to no re
duction of taxation uulcss they »ecured a
j reduction of internal taxes. The protec
tionists, he thought, would in time lie
I compelled to put forward some such rneas
) ure in order to reduce the surplus.

THE OLD STORY OK FAST LIVING AND EM
BEZZLEMENT.
A Trusted Clerk Confesses He Has Been Robbing His
Employer Fur Many Tears—The Amount of His
Stealing Estimaud Orer a Has
dred Thousand.
Chicago, December ±—The most sen
sational, as well as the heaviest defalca
tion, which lias taken place in Chicago in
many years—probably during its commer
cial history—has jnst been brought to
light. Miner T. Ames, the millionaire
coal merchant, Is the victim, and Theo
dore S. Mize, his confidential bookkeeper
and cashier and Secretary of the Chicago
and Minonk Coal aud Coke Company, at
Xo. 142 LaSalle street, is the perpetrator
of a robbery that is estimated at $100,000,
and may exceed that amount. From his
position as bookkeeper, cashier, confiden
tial clerk and secretary of the coal com
pauy, Mize had absolute control of the
moueys of the company and the private
funds of Mr. Ames. Mize is one or the
Itest known men in local business circles,
haviug a very extensive acquaintance, and
has also been one of the most popular men
of his set. He was a memberof the Union
Veteran Ciub and the Apollo Club, being
a singer of much ability.
WINE, WOMEN ACT) Rl'IX.
Mize is nanosome, «tyn.su ana laiemeu,
hut in this case it is the old story—wine,
women and ruin. His employer, Mr.
Ames, had kuown him from infancy, being
an old friend of the young man's father,
Edward Mize, formerly of Akron, O., but
now living in this city. Theodore has
been in the employ of Mr. Ames since
1872. Within a couple of years from the
time he entered Mr. Ames' employ, he
began a systematic course of robbery, cov
ering up his dishonesty by false entries
upon the books, and by other schemes.
At first his stealings were comparatively
small, but he soon began operations on a
more extensive scale, and of late years, it
I is rumored his speculations frequently
reached the stiff sum of $1,000 iu a .single
I month. About a week ago Mr. Ames dis
covered that "something was wrong" with
his money accounts. A brief investiga-1
I tion convinced him that large sums were
missing. It is said that he .then taxed
Mize with dishonesty, and declared he
would engage experts to go over the l>ooks.
Mize at once weakened,
11KOKE DOWN* AND CONFESSED
that he was guilty and had been robbing
his employer for many years. He begged
for mercy and promised restitution, so far
as it lay within his power. Since then all
his property which could I* found, includ
ing a fine house on Kills avenue, have j
l*»en turned over to Mr. Ames. Mize I
could not Ik- found by the reporter, but is
believed to Ik* stopping for the present
with his father. Besides the extravagant
manner in which he and his wife lived,it is
asserted .that Mize at various times sup
portai three other women, on whom he lav
ished money with a generous hand.
A I.KMKN'T ENI'I.OYKK.
To a reporter Mr. Ames «aid: "I am in
hopes that the -diortage will prove a great
deal less than yon have been informed. 1
could not tell you exactly what the amount
will l>e if I wanted to. for I don't know
myself. I am having the aocouuts exam
ined, but it will beseveral days yet l»el'ore
they are in such a condition that we can
tell for certain how they stand. Besides
Mr. Mize has made partial "restitution by
turning over hi* property to ine. The mat
ter is very painnfl to me, and I regard
the feelings of Mr. Mize's family as of
[ more account than the loss of the money.
H is father and I have been close friends
for thirty years."
REFI SES n» TAI.K.
The father and mother of Theodore
j Mize were f»een at their residence this af
I ternoon. They admitted the truth of
j some ot the charges, but said the amount
taken had been grossly exaggerated. They
claimed that Mr. Arnes had promised to
I keep the matter quiet, and that young
j Mize went to the office regular^ as if
nothing lud happened. They said that
he 1i:m1 overdrawn his account, and then
when Mr. Ames returned from Europe
Theodore confessed and turned over his
residence. No. .1815 Ellis avenue, to his
employer, aud this, together with what
the parents gave, made a balance in favor
of the sou.
Mr. Mize stood at the office door looking
I gloomily out as a reporter entered. "I
don't wish to say anything now." he said,
"until I have a talk with Mr. Ames.
I There are. as yon know, always two si<l«-s
I to every story, aud this Is no exception to
j the rule."
"Is there any basis for the staemeut
that you etu)»ezzled $100.001T:"'
"As I said l»efore, I prefer to await my
interview with Mr. Ames before I sayany
! tliiug. The matter was arrauged with
him satisfactorily, and our relations fia\ e
J continued undisturlied aud will until I
j tind that he is responsible for this publi
I cation.
NEFARIOUS TRAFFIC.
The Trial of "Chct" Miiith, Charcrd Wllh
Abducting Young GirU.
Chicago, December 2.—The case of
I Maggie timet ami Maggie McDermott,
I against "Chef Smith, a theatrical agent
I whom they charge with aUluction. is in
! progress before Justice Fisher. The testi
mony is of a character tending to confirm
j the original statements ruade concerning
j the dependent, to the effect that a regular
! agency was open here, with a view to en
j gaging young girls, to ostensibly join theat
! rical companies, but in reality to cause
them to be sent to mining camps in
I Wi«coasin>to lead lires of shame. Maggie
I < I met dressed in*a heavy cloak with a neat
1 hood fitting closely over head and giving
a prepop^essing appearance to her youthful
; face, took the stand and frankly ans wem!
all questions put to her to-day. She said
she and Maggie McDermott call at room
30, No. Iii, Clark streee where Smith had
an office. He told them be had a call from
a respectable Theatre in Hurley Wisconsin,
where they could earn $10 a week and
soon be placed in principal
parts of leading dramatic companies.
The contracts were shown them but not
i signed because Smith did not ask the girls
to do so. The next day they returned to
; the office tartneet a lady who would co»
\ duct them to Hurley. Arriving there,
they were taken to a disreputable bouse to
i lire in. and discovered that the Theatre
was one of the lowest of Vaudev^lle types,
I where they were compelled to solicit the
men to buy drinks in the boxes and wine
rooms, or get fitted. They were
dressed in cheesecloth dresses reaching to
the knees, and all the time not employed
on the stage had to be busy in the boxes,
begging men to drink with them. After
i eleven days of such life, detectives from
! Chicago arrived with Mrs. Gruet and
took them home. Tbe police declare a
belief that a large number of girls were
induced to go to Hurley and other places
under similar misrepresentation, and will
investigate tbe matter thoroughly.

Pkovidexck, R. I., December 2.—Un
able to bear the strain on his mind any
longer, ''Doc." Wilson yesterday morn
ing, broken down in health ana weeping
like a child, told the great secret which
has existed between him and Phillip L.
Moen, the great manufacturer, of Worces
ter, for ao many years. He told the story
in the pnjeenceof four reputable citizens,
who furnished it to your correspondent.
"I am looked at as» blackmailer," he
said, "and those who believe I have been
bleeding that old man bold me in as much
contempt as a yellow dog. But i will
stand it no longer. I am more sinned
against tfean sinning, and now the truth
shall be known. My name is not Wilson,
uor am I the son of Jonas Wilson. My
father is the man who is accusing me of
blackmail, and my name is P. L. Moen, the
lawful son of Levi Moen, of Worcester."
Mr. Wilson then went on to tell the
story of his birth and the wrong done him
by his father. His story Is that he is a son
of Moen'» first wife and that he was born
a few months after the marriage. Moen.
being a deacon and a professedly high
toned Ckristian, did not wish to face the
scandal <jf such an early birth for his first
born, bargain was made with old
Jonas Wilson, of Daniels vil le, Conn., a
stage driver, by which the babe was trans
ferred to the latter's care, and was brought
up as a Wilson.
The boy lived and toiled in the humble
sphere to which Moen consigned him, and
it wan not until he was a young nun grown
that he learned the secret of his uirth. For
that secret he was indebted to the relig
ious remorse of his supposed father, Jonas
Wilson, who, l>eing on his death bed, and
not caring to pass the portals with this
burdeu on his soul, drew the lad toward
him and told him who he was.
After Wilson died the young fellow set
off for Worcester to meet his father face to
face. Their first meetiug, Wilson says,
was exactly as has been descrilted. He
did meet Moen on that particular
morning and after observing the signs of
wealth and luxury that abounded he de
manded of Moen some reparation for the
wrong done to the one who should be the
heir to all. Moen at first refused to ac
knowledge the lad and would have driven
him forth, but the l>oy faced his million
aire father defiantly and upbraided liim
for the wrong done his mother and him
self. He said:"I will force you to ac
knowledge me, and the world shall know
you or what you are."
"Then "I)oc" says, the banker-deacon
l>ecame alarmed and gave me $1<M>. 15y
appointment he met Moen the next day
and consented to shield him from shame.
The father had, in the meantime, married
again after the death of "Doc's" mother
and had married into a family which
would have scorned Moen had they known
of the scandal. Then, according to Wil
son's story, the Wilsons, who knew the
secret ofhis parentage, seeing "Doc" had
money knew it came from Moen, lwgan
urging claims upon him. Their demands
increased and to satisfy them he had to
apply to Moen lor money, and in that way
much of the amount received from the
manufacturer was spent. Mr. Wilson says
these demads on him grew so exorbitant
that he was almost impoverished by them.
The suits in which certain women fig
ured were settled, In* savs, at Moen's sug
gestion and with Moen's money, liecause
the latter feared his relationship to Wil
son would come out in the trial.
Wilson has letters which he says are
written by Moen, acknowledging the re
lationship and calling him "Dear son."
These letters Mr. Wilson produced to-day.
He says lie is the injured one, as instead
of being reared as a gentleman and brought
np amid alt the luxuries which his father's
wealth could purchase, he was catit adrift,
reared as a peasant boy without education
and without any of the refinements of life
which would have been his had his cruel
jurent done right. Wilson says he can no
longer endure the calumnies with which'
he is assailed and that his confession of
the secret is true in every respect.
Worcester, Mass., I)ecember 2.—Mr.
Moen was seen as he came from prayer
meeting, and reporters tried to interview
him, but he would say nothing except that
the story was a lie. Mr. IJice, Moen's
brother-in-law and counsel, also denied
the story, and said there was plentj* of evi
dence to refute it.
»DocV Story Probably Falne.
Worcester, Mass., I>ecen>l>er •_*.—Tlie
Records of the town of Uxforil Massachu
setts show that Ii(*vi Wilson was l>oni there
on December 1, eleven months after
Mrs. Moen died.
I'EOVIDEXCE, H. I., Pecemlwïr 2.—Are
jiorter of the .Journal this evening inter
viewe«! Mrs. George Meyer, of Uridge, who
has always been considered a sister
of "Dot." Wilson. To a query if
Wilson's story was true she returned
an evasive answer. She would not deny
that Wilson had told au untruth when he ;
»lid. she was not his sister, nor would she I
contradict him in the «lichtest particular, j
but gave most unsatisfactory and evasive
replies. Nothing could pin her down to a !
simple yes or no on any point excepting
one. and that was that Wilson had
given her a great deal of money, flnt
and last, aud from what he said she
deemed, he thought it best she should not
j talk about his affairs. She rememl*;red
i her father's illness, but could not tell the
year in which he died. All effort* to ex
tract more from her were in vain.
All she would admit was that
her father was at one !
j time a cburchmember. that alter he was
: taken ill be often spoke to them all on
j the subject of doing right, and that Levi
I Wilson supplied her with money. The
j Journal reporter saw Mrs. Young, another
j sister of Levi Wilson, at I'ntnam, Conn., i
to-dav. She "stated that Levi was tbe1
son of Jonas Wilson and that his aunt was
1 près»-at at the time of his birth. He was
named afUrr her tiret husband whose !
name was I>evi Fessend en and her father ,
and mother knew nothing about Moen for i
years after that.

A MAX IX THE CASE.
The fonrh-Mtdl Trouble BfUrrnI to Be
Üfttled.
St. Loris, December 2.—The trouble in
the American Opera a few days ago which
resulted in the temporary retirement of
Muie. Furach-Mabdi, as now stated, orig
inated with Signor De Vivo, the prima
ilobna's "personal agent.The Signor
was on the steige daring the rehearsal when
Stage Manager Hock requested him to
withdraw. This angered Mme. Furch
Mahdi more than the table incident and
she burst into tears. She could not pro
ceed then with the rehearsal and left the
stage, but offered to return.
The orhest ra and chorus, however, had
heeu dismissed, and the rehearsal was
postponed, aud Miss Pierson was substi
tuted in her place. Mr. Thomas télé
graphe«! while on his way to New York,
that it Mme Furch-Madi would discharge
Signor De Vivo, she would be allowed to
assume her former position in the company.
The Madame then telegraphed MrsThnrber
at New. that »he was willing to sign at
any time without conditions, and would
leave for New York on Friday. Mean
time it was arranged here tltat
Madi should sing Aidai to-night,
and Sirs. Thurbe: telegraphed to her
that as she (Madi) would sing to-night,
the Hoard would not meet. So the
matter rests and it is understood that
Fursch-Madi considers the affair settled.
Henry Verle the Madamc's husband will
arrive from New York to-morrow, and it
is further understood that he will here
after travel with his wife aud thus bring
themselves in harmony with the rules of
the National Opera Company in regard to
singers employing special agents. Thus
perhaps ends the tempest in a teapot
and the i waters of the Open» Company are
flowing smoothly again.

"Good afternoon Mr. Cavanaagh. What
Jo you think ofthe denial of the sacrament

"It wan what was to l>e expected after
the denunciation of the Order by Arch
buhop Taschereau. It ia of course to be
regretted that the Father Superior of the
Oblate Order lut* seen fit to take the step
and, if it should bewnie general, it would
hurt us very much. I do not know the

'It'you Knights of I .a I sir would only do

"It has U-eti stated in the papers that
the case has Im-cu presented to the 1'ope,

he had there would l>e harmony of action
in relation to the Order both here and in
Canada. As it is, each otVicer of the church
assumes the attitude that he cousider*
just, and, fortunately, few have thought
us the Montreal Father has."
"Are you a Catholic, Mr. Cuvanaugh?"
