THE REMOVALS IN V7ABHINGT0N Fraudulent Chinese Cerilflcntrs Manu factured by Wholesale - Other B uiovnli to Follow. Associated Pre3s. Washington, D. C, June 0. -The re moval of Patrick II. Winston, United States Attorney; Thos. Ti. Brown, Uni ted States Marshal; Andrew Wasson, United States Collector, at Port Town send; C. J. Mulkey, United States Special Agent, and six special inspec tors of customs in the Puget Sound district, all in the state of Washington, and the appointment of their success ors, Is said to be due to reports made to Secretary Carlisle by special treas ury agents Wood and Lewis. These reports were numerous and circum stantial as to detail, and .tell the story of one of the most extensive and suc cessful conspiracies ever formed to smuggle Chinese and opium into the United States across the far north western 'boundary. These ofllcials, it is charged by the reports received", have been. doing .a wholesale business for several years in connection with private parties in Victoria, B. C, in smuggling, in Chinese by means of fraudulent certificates, and permitting opium smuggling either by connivance or otherwise. Politics were never en tered into, but the immense profit in the business seems to have corrupted many ofllcials. Other removals are yet to come, and the matter in due course of time will find Its way into the courts. MR. WINSTON HEAKD FROM. He Denounces in Strong Terms, theAu - thor of the Smuggling Charge. Seattle, June 20. Upon reading the Associated Press Dispatch from Wash ington in reference to the removal of federal officials in this state, giving as a reason that they were in a gigantic smuggling ring, Colonel Patrick Henry Winston, ex-United . States district at torney, at once sent out the following dispatch: ' . ',. "Editor New York Tribune, New York City: An Associated Press dis patch sent out from W'ashfngton city and purporting to erninate from the olilce of the secretary of the treasury, and to have been inspired by that of ficial, appears in this evening's papers, charging in. substance that the recent removal of federal officials in the dis trict of Washington, including my own, from the ofilce of United States attorney,- were occasioned --by the dis covery that these ofllcials had formed the most extensive and suc cessful conspiracy ever formed to smuggle Chinese into the United States. So far as the dispatch con cerns me, it may be necessary in this era of partisan' politics to say to those who do not know me that whoever wrote or inspired it is a common liar. I have alreod stated In an official com munication! to the president, under date of May 30th, the cause of my re moval. I invite him or anyone author ized by him to give a different reason, (Signed) PATRICK H, WINSTON. MAKES A GENERAL DENIAL.' Tocoma, June 20. Ex-United States Marshal Brown denies " emphatically the truth of the charges made by Spe cial Treasury Agents Wood and Lewis.

BANK SUSPENSIONS. The Stringency In the Money Market Continues With Bad Results. Eugene, .Tune 20. The Lane county bank, the oldest financial institution in this c noty, failed to open its door9 this morning, having become cramped by the stringency of the money market. Hovey, Humphry and Co. have posted a notice that, depositors will be paid in full. No statement has yet been made as to the assets and liabilities, but depositors do not seem to have any fears, and many say that if the bank should open this afternoon they would not draw. The cashier stated In an Interview today that the assets, notes and prop erty would amoupt to nearly three times the liablities. No attachments have been Issued and, probably, there will be none. The bank strongly as serts thatJt will pay every dollar to the depositors, but In order to realize on their credits at once they would be compelled to go Into court and crowd their patrons. This they did not feel disposed to do, and when they failed to secure, assistance from Portland and San Francisco banks, they concluded to take plenty of time to It, and let mat ters shape themselves when the money market .should be easier. Some ex citement was created on the streets and a run was threatened on the other banks, but they were fully able to pay every demand promptly. Albany, Or., June 20. The excitement over .the financial flurry has quieted down. The official statement of the suspended bank's condition will show, it is stated, assets sufficient to pay de positors every dollar. Los Angeles, June 20. The Univer sity Bank and the City Savings Bank closed their doors this morning. The president of the City Bank says that the bank has closed temporarily in or der to collect money from its loans and securities; "He say S depositors Will be paid in full.

New Bedford, June 20. The prose cution finished summing u? this morn ing In the Borden murder enso. The defendant was given an oppor tunity t.) (-peak. She said: "I am in nocent, but I will leave my case in your hands and with my counsel." Justice Dewey then charged tho jury.

After being out one hour and twenty minutes, the Jury acquitted Lizzie Borden of mur der. Vvt.on the verdict was announced, all the dignity and decorum of the court vanished. A cheer went, up which might have been heard half a mile away, and there was no attempt to check it. Miss Borden's head went down upon the roll in front of her and the tears came. Mr. Jennings was almost crying, while Mr. Adams eeemed Incapable of speech. As soon as possl ble the room was cleared, and when the spectators had finally gone. Miss Borden was taken to the room of the Justices and allowed to recover her composure with only the eyes of friends upon her, and the caresses of devoted admirers. At the expiration of nn hour ehe was placed in a carriage and driven to the station, where she took the train for Fall River, her home no longer, probably, but still the only ob. Jectlve point she has for the immediate present. ' ; . FATAL RAILROAD ACCIDENT. New York, June 20.
