SMITH'S SMILES.
Which Oot Him Into Trouble
iu More Ways Than
Ono.
Tlio ABontoftho Wheeler find WU-
eon Company Dopnrts Under
Curious ClrcuniBtixncoa.
On Snturday last nn importnnL
charge tvas mndo in the ollico of tlio
general malinger of tlio Whuulor and
Wilson flowing mnchinu company for
the iiortliwesturn fnctory , vvbicb em
braces Nobraskn , Montniia , AVyom-
ing and D.iknta , The Oonenxl Man
ager Sidney Smith was relieved nnd
bis place filled by n gcntlomnn from
Chicago. The cause of Smith'H ' ro-
nioval was stated to bo his aomowlinl
irregular nninngc'iuunt of the ullaira of
the company , on uccount of his par
tiality for the cup which cheers and
does ( at times ) inebriate. The cli
max of some of bis alleged misman
agement was readied n few weeks
ago , when in ono of bin re
ports be sent in a deficit of
gf > 00 credited to a highway
rcbbory he claimed to have aullored.
Tlio factacoiicurning the highway rob
bery are claimed to be that Smith
"took a walk ' with some S" > 00 in bis
pockets and laid down on the side
walk , under the impression that ho
\vna goinu to bed. Some one ciuno
along nnd relieved him of liis coat ,
and the circumstances under which
it was lost suggested the propriety of.
no investigation.
However , these things may be , trim
or untrue , a change wni made in the
oUlco , ns above stated , and on Sunday
Smith took his family out of town
with him , leaving on an eastern
train. It is now rumored that there
linn .ipponrod a largo deficit in Smith's
iicoountH since his departure , and that
the company is out iibput Sl.UOO.
At the late hour last evening lyhtm
thin repori was first made public , it
was impossible to obtain moro delinita
information , or to corroborate the
rumor by figures from the books.
The reported deficiency will cull to
mind Smith B active part in the pros
ecution of Harry Gnrrignn , one of his
agenta , last mumuor on the chargu of
ombur./.lomunt. At that time Smith
clnimcd that Carrignn bad ombo/.alod
largo amounts from him , but wbun
the case came to trial in the district
court the jury failed to find amilliciont
.nn to wan-ant conviction. Then
nrrignn wiw ro-nrreatedon tbuchnrgu
forgery , ami was convicted of forg-
ig an order for SO. Upon thia eon-
Action he wan sentenced to throu
eara in the penitentiary , nnd IB now
orving out his time. Upon tbo trial
10 defense set forth certain thingu
earing upon Smith's relation to tbo
ise and his mimnanagoinont of buai-
ess , but this testimony came moBtly
om Gurrigan and was overlooked by
10 jury. Should Smith's reported
flicieney be conlinned it may let
: ) ino light in upon tbo Garrigan case ,
ml may show the man now in tbo
enitcntiaVy to bu less guilty than the
an who is out of it.
