Special to the Globe.
Brainkkd, Oct. 22. — Last evening, a
number of holders of checks drawn on
the Lumbermen's Exchange Bank were
surprised and considerably excited to
hear that the bank had not paid or made
good the cheeks which came into the
First National bank in the tegular
course of business. • From these, the
rumor spread that the Lumbermen's
bank was in a bad way, and a run was
certainly expected to-day. •At the
Morning hour of opening business there
was at the Lumbermen's plenty of cash
i in sight to pay every and also, con
fidence was doubly restored by seeing,
that the new bank, called the Northern;
Pacific bank, had reopened for business':
in the same or part of the same house.;
There was no run on the Lumbermen's;
and few people were around. who
wanted money. The Lumbermen's is a
r vale bank, owned by ■ Col. C. L. i
fc>j>aul(liux. widely known in business,
politics and esdecially in Masonry, be-,

(i. A. It. He had also some months ago:
been appointed postmaster, though he
had not yet got possession of the;
office. He was sought at the bank by !
the Globe correspondent, and was not
in. but Cashier Simons stated that, a
iittle trouble they had about a-small'
draft had been all fixed up, and that
was all there was of it. Some, of the j
depositors and drawers of -the checks
spoken of claimed, however," that' trie .
trouble was due to the action of Cashier
Ferris, of the First, and chanted that
he asrreed to hold certain checks for the
Lumberman's,, and then as soon as the '
bank closed went out and presented .
them for payment to the individuals. i
So Cashier Ferris was seen and;
denied any such thins?. -• They :
held, he said, at .the: ■ closing :
hour a number of checks on :the
Lumbermen's awaiting pa yineut. and
waited therefor until 0 o'clock, and then
he went out and returned same to the
makers to be made good, and as other
was later about to be protested, the
Lumbermen's officers got around and
took care of the paper. lie said that
was all there was of it. To add to the
breeze there was known to be quite a
sum of school money deposited with the
Lumbermen's. Probably the uneasi
ness has all grown out of the fact that
the Lumbermen's is going into liquida
dation, in view of its owner. Col.
Spauldinp, going into the postofnee.
The latter lias been in the nankins
five or six years, having racceeded to it
on retirement of Keene &.Nevins. who
were the founders. Col. Spaulding was
to-day notified that his commission as
postmaster, which has so long been held
up, is signed and on its way to him.

Joseph De la >iotte Jr. Gets Into
Serious Trouble.
Special to the Globe. .
Eau Ci.AiKK, Wis.. Oct. 22.— Joseph
De La Motte Jr., of Chippewa Falls, is
the man who, acting as the husband of
the wife of the once noted editor of the
Chippewa Falls Independent, J. N.
Phillips, brought himself into such
notoriety about a year ago. He is again
in trouble. This time he is charged
with the abduction of Cora McCarthy, a
daughter of a mail carrier of this city.
The warrant for bis arrest was served
on him by Deputy Sheriff Conners to
day, and he was brought to this city,
and before Judge Marsh gave sßoo bonds
for his appearance on Friday. The
chance is that he enticed and decoyed
the young girl to a house of ill-tame on
the * outskirts of this city for the pur
pose of prostitution. La Wotte is a
strikingly handsome man, and is pro
prietor of a fashionable saloon in Chip
pewa Falls. The McCarthy girl was
placed as a dining room girl in the
leading hotel here, and was thus thrown
into contact with La Motte and other
fast young men. Her ruin was soon
accomplished. It had been published
in other papers that this same girl had
had a warrant out against Uarrv P.
Porter, a young and influential lumber
man, for seduction. This is not the
cast*, and the newspaper comments
have caused deep distress iv a well
known and respected family.

tor and three con federates were arrested
for stealing on Saturday, and yesterday
afternoon they were tried before Judge
Barto and bound over to await the ac
tion of the grand jury at the December
term of court. It appears that they
were working systematically. They
had committed a large number of burg
laries and petty thefts during the past
six months. Three stores had been
broken into and robbed of hundreds of
dollars' worth of goods, consisting of .
clothing, boots and shoes, tobacco, etc.
One saloon had been robbed of money,
liquors and cigars, and many things had
been taken from private residences,,
they even going so far in one case as to j
steal a front door from its hinges daring
the absence of the family. When search
was made much of the stolen property
was discovered, some of it plowed under
in a field not far from the house, some
under a haystack and some in the
house. These robberies have been the
most bold and audacious known in this
Vicinity for years. There is little doubt !
but that all the gang will go to the peni
tentiary for a long term of years.

Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 22.— A spe

that has rarely been surpassed in its
horrible details. It seems that while
Albert Smith and his three oldest chil
dren had gone some miles to church,
five negroes approached the house and
asked Mrs. Smith to give them some
thing to eat. On being refused they
went into the house, and, learning that
there was no one home but Mrs. Smith
and her babe, forced her into
the yard and began ransacking
the house. After appropriating |
all they could find in the
way of money and valuables, they set
fire" to tit* house and ad. Ed horror to the
terrible scene by forcing the distracted
woman to witness tne most brutal of
findish deeds, which was the tossing of
ln-r little baby in the air and letting it
fall back almost on the point of sharp
knives, whicn they held under it. The
brutes finally heeded the frantic wom
an's entreaties and went away, leav
ing her with nothing to greet the return
01 her husband and children but her
half-dead bube and a sniouWering heap
of coals. People for miles around have
been searching for the villains, and at
last accounts three of the negroes had
been captured.
And the Lynching Proceeded Im
mediately Thereafter.
Commbvs, S. C, Oct. 22.— Some very
curious facts in connection with the re
cent lynching of young Robert Berrier
for the murder of his mother-in-law,
near Lexinirlon, N. C. have just come
to light. A party; who witnessed the
hanging says Berrier was taken from
the jail at half-past 7 and immediately
carried to t:ie outskirts of the town
under a large oak irce. Here the mob
stopped and asked the prisoner if be
was ready to die. Berrier said he
would be if he knew he would
meet his wife and babe In heavwi.
The mob then informed him that he.
would be allotted time to pre
pare for death. About this time a drum
mer, who was in town, came upon the
scene, and asked to be allowed to pray
with the condemned man. His request
was granted, and he knelt down by 'In
side of Berrier and prayed very ter
vently that God would snve his soul.
During the prayer many hearty
"Ametis"' and such responses as "Lord
grant it," etc., went up from the mob.
For more than three hours prayer and
regular religious services w*-ra con
ducted. A few minutes before mid
night Berrier expressed his willingness
to die. He was then placed upon a
horse, with a rope about his neck, and
then as an appiopriate hymn was sung
the horse was led from under him and
the body left dangling in the air.

The documents, two in number, were
for City Auditor Winram, of Kansas
City, and John E. Bull, of the same city.
William J. Brewster claims to have
been defrauded out of $10,000 in cash
and $6,000 on a note given to Pine in
payment for an interest in mining prop
erty in Pima county, Arizona, which
was found to be worthless. Brewster
claims Winram was a party to the
fraud in that he recommended Pine and
spoke highly of his character. A suit
for $20,000 damages is pending in Kan
sas City against Pine. Winram and John
E. Bull, who, it is charged, acted in the

many cases each slave carries a placard'
suspended from his neck, upon which'
is written the price at which he can be

the lowest, and so complete is. their in

slightest attention. To illustrate the
openness with which the* traffic is ear

a few days. Yesterday afternoon they

And Her Babe Died in Her Anns
on a Train. '"./.":, ?
Jamestown, N. T.. Oct. 22.— A young
Portuguese woman, giving her name as
Maggie Simmons, arrived in this city
about 1 o'clock to-day on the New York,
Pennsylvania & Ohio railroad, with the
body of a dead baby in her arms. When
questioned by a reporter she told this
story: "I will be sixteen years old
next Thanksgiving and have lived in 1
Providence, 11. I. I had been married
to a young man in that place and just
before my baby was born he went away
in company with his mother and left
me. I started for California, where I
have relatives, as soon as 1 could after
the birth of my child. This morning
the baby seemed perfectly well, and.
only naif an hour before reaching
Jamestown I found it dead." The girl is
without money or friends. A local un
dertaker took charge of the body of the
child and will have it interred here.
The woman and an acquaintance whom
she met on the train and who stopped
off here with her, will start again for
California to-morrow morning. . ;
And His First Wife Proposes to
Send Him Up.
Cleveland, 0., Oct. 22.— Early In
September Albert B. Crenshaw and
Alice Gray Wilson ran away from Tawa
City, Mich., and on arriving in Detroit
were married. After the ceremony they
came to Cleveland and put up at the
Ilollenden, where they have since re
mained at a cost of $10 per day. Mrs.
Crenshaw is an heiress, a beau
tiful woman, and but nineteen
years old. In June, 1888, Cren
shaw was married to Miss : Jen-"
nic Evans at Chattanooga. Term. . Miss
Evans' home was in Oberlin, 0., a few
miles west of Cleveland, and she had
some property, which Crenshaw de
manded as soon as he married her. Not
getting it, he deserted her. She applied
for a divorce, and three weeks beiore it
was granted he married Miss Wilson.
Mrs. Crenshaw heard all this to-day.
She was quite equal to the occasion, for
she immediately hired an attorney, swore
out a warrant for Crenshaw's arrest, and
to-night he is snug and tight in the
county jail. She declares that she will
prosecute him to the end and see that
he goes to the penitentiary.
Judge Deady Isn't Sure She Won't
Shoot Him.
Washington, Oct. 22. — Judge
Matthew P. Deady, of the Oregon fed
eral circuit and district court, before,
whom the famous Sharon-Hill case was
brought ie a hearing, is in Washington.
Judge Deady wrote the opinion declar
ing the famous marriage contract a for
gery, and JudgejSawyer wrote the con
curring opinion. Being interviewed by,
a Post reporter, Judge Deady said: "I
came East as a delegate to the Episcopal
convention in New York. Yes, I sat in
the Sharon-Hill case. The fact is, that
woman was merely his mistress. He
gave her $500 a month, furnished mag
nificent quarters, and spent money on
her lavishly. Her influence on Judge
Terry — was undoubtedly bad. She
urged him to acts beyond even his own 1
inclination. In November she will be
tried before me for resisting the authori
ties. It is very likely that she may, at
some favorable opportunity, attempt
the lives of Justice Field, Judge Saw
yer and myself. I predict she will die
a violent death." ■ "^""i^

sent to Chicago yesterday developed
the fact .that no divorce had been
granted there to Dr. Frazer. the mar
ried man who ran away with Lillie
Thorn last Wednesday. It has been

How a Wealthy Cottager Repaid
a Conductor's Kindly Act. ' /
The Providence Journal relates a
Newport incident of which a wealthy
cottager was the hero. He had been to
see the surf, and got a ducking from a
big wave. He therefore started for
home on one of the terrible electric cars
which the cottagers so bitterly oppose.
When the conductor came around he
fumbled in his pockets for money to pay
his fare, but in vain. The conductor
offered to pay the fare out of his own
pocket and trust his passenger for
repayment. This offer was accept
ed, .'and the indebted party asked
the conductor where be could be found,
to which the reply was given that be
was either on the cars or at the car
house most of the time. This did not
satisfy him, and he wanted to know
where he lived, as he said that his bene
factor should be well paid for his trou
ble.: And so lie was, for when he arrived
home at breakfast the next morning he
found a nice, fat letter awaiting him,
and was greatly surprised upon open

paper, without a word written on it,

The Famous Bunco Steerer
and General Confidence
Alleged to Be Identical With
Kray, the Local Sa
Norris, the Detective. Traces
Him Here, but Loses
Kis Man.
An Interesting Bit of History
Connected With a Strange
Joe Kray, the qoiidam proprietor ol
the saloon at 147 East Third street, 19
suddenly missing. About ten month 9
ago his" interest in the saloon was
turned over to his partner, Charles
GHlesple, and Kray \ve:it to Paris, os
tensibly to visit the exposition. He re
turned to St. Paul last week, and was
again seen about his old haunts. Gen
erally regarded as a vi'iy "smooth"
party, he enjoyed a large circle of ac
quaintances among a certain class of
sports. When he returned from across
the water he was warmly greeted, and
his friends treated him to the best the
town atforded. They were considerably
surprised, however, at his sudden dis
appearance. Some felt injured and
were inclined t o believe that their fan
cied illtreatment was the direct result
of Joe's brief existence in gay Paris.
which may restore him to their good
opinion. John T. Morris, a well-known
Eastern detective, departed for hia
home yesterday morning, after spend
ing several days in the city. To a re
porter Norns stated that he came to St.
Paul in quest of a crook once well known
as Paper Collar Joe. He also claimed
to lmve proof that Paper Collar Joe wag
none other than Joe Bond, who did time
at Auburn for card-sharping in In
spector Byrnes' bailiwick, and that Joe
Bond, thi- ex-convict, was none other
than St. Paul's smooth saloonkeeper,
Joe Kray. In 18SB Fanner Kober Speara
was tricked out of about $l,!> 00
by cards at Columbia City,
lnd. Many others of the too
credulous of that section of the country
were beaten in a similar manner. At
a gathering of the mourners it trans
pired that they had all been victimized
by the same parties, three smooth talk
ers, and that their combined losses ag
gregated nearly *20.o::o. Their first
move was to employ Norris to work up
the case. Two of the fellows the detec
tive eventually spotted, but the identity
of the third still remains a mystery,
though the trio hung together for some
tuneand operated successfully in the
Southeastern states and 011 the lower
MissisMssippi. The two whose identity
he learned were Paper Collar Joe and
Denny Doheity. When the three men
finally .separated Doherty went to Eu
rope and Joe and the unknown became
Doherty shot and killed a gambler
named Joseph. Graham during a row
over cards in London, for which crime
he is now doing time under Queen Vic
toria. About a year ago, the detective
claims, he located Paper Collar Joe in
this city, in the person of a Third street
saloonkeeper. Before the arrest could
be arranged, however, Kray went to
Europe, where he was watched by for
eign detectives, who report that he
made money during his absence. When
he arrived in New York on the 12th
inst. the detective was notified, and
laid traps for his arrest. Not appre
hending the man wanted in the East,
Norris telegraphed to St. Paul and
learned that he was here. A second
dispatch from Chicago asked that Kray
be watched, and Norris came on in post
hast. He arrived just late enough to
miss his man. as Kray was well out of
sitrht several hours before Norris
limped up town from the union depot.
The detective was considerably puz
zled to know how Kray got his tip, but
was inclined to believe that some one
on the "inside" gave him warning.
ft\\*s \iKer ColUr lot
The description of Kray, alias Joseph
Bond, alias Paper Collar Joe, bunco
steerer, published with _ the accom
panying portrait in "The Professional
Criminals of America," as issued by In
spector Byrnes, of New York, in 1886,
is as follows: r: ' . := :
Thirty-six years old in 1886,- born In
United * States, married, no trade, medium
build, heightO feet 71& inches, weight about
148 pounds, dark hair, hazel eyes, light
complexion, generally wears sandy side
whiskers and mustache, high forehead, looks
somewhat like a Jew. ■- - ■' ■ i
In St. Paul Kray was a hail fellow
well met, and, while his place was fre
quented by local gamblers, no crooked
work done there ever came to light. He
was probably personally known to every
city and private detective in St. Paul,
but whether his past record, as detailed
by Mr. Norris, was : known to them will
probably never be known. Kray'a
friends, while admitting that his past
record is a trifle shady, allege that Nor
ris is simply using extreme measures to
collect an old debt. His course, they
say, amounts to but little less than the
persecution of a man who is trying to
lead an honest life. %• ; :
