it was one of the must successful and

Minneapolis graced the theater. There
was no end to the handsome costumes.

that scintillated, jewels that Hashed and
dazzled the eye. The theater was a
veritable garden. The decorators,
Meiidenhall, the Uorist, and others, had
succeeded in transforming the cozy
temple of the drama to a vast tropical
arbor. The dancing floor was as smooth
as it was possible to make it. There
were iso novices dancing on it last night.
They would have come to grief had
they even made at attempt at "tripping

The place was brilliantly illuminated.

his patient's wearing apparel and a gold

Troubles of the Transcontinental
Are Practically Settled.
Chicago, Dec. 14.—The Western
lines made considerable progress today
with the Canadian Pacific proportion of
the New York emigiant business de
manded by tiiat line. The original de
mand of the Canadian Pacific was fur 25
per cent of all business coining: into the
port of New Yor*, which demand ihe
other lines positively refused to grant.
The advisory rominittee of the emigrant
clearing house finally induced the Can
adian Pacific to consider a proposition
of SO per cent, witti a slight territorial
concession in the Northwest, which
will brine the total proportion of
the Canadian Pacific to a trifle
over 20 per cent. The chances
are that an agreement wilt be reached
ed on this basis at tomorrow's meeting.
At the afternoon session the same tier lit
on differentials was taken up with
slightly better chances of an agreement
being reached, but still nothing had
been arranged when the meeting ad
journed. The general meeting of all the
lines is adjourned from day to day
to allow the transcontinental line's
to struggle with the Canadian Pacific.
When the general meeting convenes
tomorrow, a plan of organization will
be submitted by the trans-Missouri
committee. The transcontinental traffic
managers have failed to reach an agree
ment, and decided to adjourn until Jan.
14. when they will meet again in this
city. The matter Is left in about thu
same condition as at the begiunintr of
the meetings. A new schedule of rates
was prepared and submitted to the
members, but did uot meet the approval
of all, and was finally dropped.

the capital, he allowed his son-in-law
one-half of the profits. This was con
siderable for ti period, but during the
last year the business was conducted at
a loss. Pttringtou'a persona, obligations

became pressing. This is believed to be
the reason for his alleged appiopriation

One note held against him for $1,500 was
to have gone to protest last Monday.
"His irregularities do not cover a
period of more than a month," said Mr.
Dobbins, "but he got away with nearly
ail my ready cash 1:: that time. The way
he did it was to collect bills due the firm
and pocket the money. I cannot tell
now how much he did t«ke in this way
but it looks like $40,000; it mr.y go over

pulled a phial of chloroform from his
pocket, and said that we would end the
matter by dying together, lie tried to
throttle i;ie to dfath, and when I pulied

fortabJe apartments iv Ludlow street
•Seeiey arrived at the Pennsylvania
railroad depot, at Jersey City, this even
ing by the fastest train that runs be
tween Chicago and New York. On
alighting he faced some forty reporters
and artists assembled on No. 12 plat
form. Awaiting Hie arrival of the train
was the prisoner's legal adviser and
confidential lawyer.Angel. The captivß
was completely unfettered. He walked
between .Marshal Arnold and Detective
"Andy" Nugent. His eyes were turned
tO ii.J ernuud,"and he looked anxious,
carewoTt) i»i! rt even haggard. His long,
flowing bloilde mustache had be*u
shorn to a ruiiJJfcd stubble, and
the dyer's stuff fiad tempered it
into a reddish brown. His
immediate trappings consisted of a
large-sized woman's dress box of white
cardboard, ti*d with ordinary string.
He took up a seat at the back of the
coach, sitting beside Marshal Arnold,
and the pair had before them on the
opposite seat United States Marshal
McCarthy and Bank President Crane.
The office of Commissioner Shields was
crowded, mostly by the press, and only
immediate friends of the accused pres
ent were Samuel Amer, his assistant at
the bank and brother-in-law, and M. E.
Haileuback, an uncle of Seeley's wife.
The commissioner read the substance
of the warrant, the prisoner meantime,
standing in a respectful and attentive
attitude. Immediately the ques
tion of bail or jail was raised, and
Mr. McFarlane annoonced that under
the circumstances of the crime he asked
that the bail should stand at S&I.000.
Mr. Angel thought that fixing of such an
amount would tend to interfere with
the accused preparing a proper defense.
He thought that Seeley had not acted
like a man who wanted to quit the
country, and asked that the amount
should be fixed at £20,000. He
pointed out that the sum in
volved in the one charge before
the commissioner was one of 55.580,
and for such « sum the amount asked
Was simply abslitd.
Mr. McFarlane mildly insisted, but
after a minute's reflection the commis
sioner fixed the bail at 825.000.
The prisoner was soon afterwards re
moved to a specially prepared apart
ment at Ludlow street jail, where Mr.
Angel has made complete arrangements
for his comfort. Before leaving the
commissioner's room Mr. Crane bade
Seeley "Good night," and shook him
warmly by the hand. To Marshal Ar
nold the prisoner said, in a low tone of
voice: "1 desire, sir, to thank you and
your Chicago friends for all your kind
ness to me, and trust that your trip back
will be a pleasant one."
