The scheme to break Iho pool rooms In the
various cities of the country Tuesday after
noon proves lo bo Iho liveliest and mpu
Bleantlo plcco of work uf this description
ever nltomplcd In the country. Il hns n special
local nlgnlllcanco from the fact that It was
through the vlallanco and sagacity of
Charles Sablns , manager of tbo Umtuond
pool rooms , Hint Iho btir. crooked denl
wns balked in Its very inclpioncy. Assist

would bo dead broke today , ns their losses
would hnvo boon tremendous , undoubtedly.
running up into the hundreds of thousands.
An Operator III the DIM ) .
The facts of tno discovery of the chief lool
in the fraud , ono Prank Boyle , n trusted and
proficient operator In the racing bureau nl
Now York , nro nbout ns follows : On Iho ro-
colpt of Sablns' ' telegram , Manager Uoaluy
was but a moment in ascertaining that'a big
Job wns in progress , nnd forthwith sot about
to frustrate It. Ilo stationed himself In the
operating room and nt the termination of the
third nice caught Uoylo In Iho very net of
substituting the name of Iho horse tno clover
sharks had arranged to play for thu wltniur.
This wns Mabel , Iho winner being Mabello.
Boyle was immediately relieved and tbo
error corrected , and word Unshed ever the
couniry to tbo pool rooms notifying thorn of
Iho fraud.This , however , was too Into to save
any of Ihom excepting Omaha , where Sabins
had stopped tha payment of all tlckols 1m-
mediately after thfflirst race.
In Covington , Kansas City , Denver nnd
San Francisco , the bogus tlcknts on both the
llrst mid second rnce were cashed before the
pool rooms received nn inkling of the Job-
from this city via the racing bureau at Now
York. The consequences are that the ag-
grcgsto loss in these four cities will foot Up
probably * 7. > ,000 , but a drop in the bucket to
what. they would havn dumped ,
had the whole nix races been
played nccordinc to the program ,
for it has since been ascertained that it was
on the last race the sharks were to have made
their "killing. "
lUIixed Their lllg Opportunity.
The two horses that were lo bo played in
tbo last two races are not known , us the
blocking of the gnmo on the third race ohlit-
ernled all chances for further knowledge of
ibo details of this smooth Job. The llrst four
to bu played , however , were Congress , Uosu
( J. . Mabel , and Woodcutter , all long odds
shots , Tbo sharks evidently only Intended
to paVe the way for Iho final calaclasm
op these four horses , intending to null
out n trlllc like a couple of hundred
thousand dollars , leaving the last two events
on which to "bust" the rooms.
Ilnil Mastered Ivery ; Detail.
'To give nn idea of the nonsummnlo skill
exorcised in pulling up llio Job , is only neces
sary lo slate that all telegrams from the Gut-
lonborg Irack lo Iho racing bureau in Now
York cily were nil O. K. in Ibo minutest de
tail , "and were sent from tbo racing bureau
to the operating room all in regular order.
Right hero the nice work catno in. Boyle ,
Who was SL'uftlug on the western circuit to
Chicago , substituting thu names of the
winners lhat were to bo played by his con
federates throughout the.country in the mes
sages sent in plain English , and in tha cipher
messages substituting tbo cipher words for
the bogus horses in place of those given in
Ibo messages from Iho bureau to tbo pool
rooms , so that the cipher apparently was nil
right , tallying as It did with the winners
sent In Iho description nnd olllcial messages
ns Boyle bad adroitly doctored them. This
shows conclusively that be is n man well up
in Iho intricacies of the racing bureau , with
acccess to the cipher schedule , which ho bad
undoubtedly all arranged beforehand.
It is said that Boyle received t O.OOO
cosh in hand for" his participation
in the Job , and ha had executed
his work well , for all the sharks playing the
western pool rooms bad a manifold copy of
the entries nnd the winners , which they wore
to play.
Mr , Iforton explained that Boyle could not
bo other ihnu au expert , as his work had all
to be done with lightning quickness , as there
Is never Iho slightest delay in transinitliug
Ihoso messages. His knowledge of Iho
cipher must bo thorough , and his work at
the key done without hesitancy or hitch.
Notwithstanding the absolute knowledge
of Boyle's complicity in tbis gigantic fraud ,
ho is amenable to no law , as it cannot bo
proven that ho changed the message , for
when caught in the net substituting
Mabel for Mabolla , his claim Hint it was an
error was plnuslbio indeed , considering the
similitude between tbo two names. Ho
a wears thai ba sonl Iho messages as they lay
before him , and if any change was made il
was in transit nt thu Chicauo ofllco. It is not
probnllo , however , that Mr. Boyle will cut
much ot n llguro from this on with the
Western Union Telegraph company.nnd with
his "llulo rake off" it is not probable that ho
desires to.

There was an average good crowd at the

Boyd's ' now theater on this and tomorrow
evenings and Saturday matlnoo. Entirely
now scenery nas boon painted and now cos
tume's made for this revival , which will b3
on olabor.ito ono in every way. Miss T'au-
llno Hall assumes the titular role , which is
remarkably rich in gems of vocallsm per
fectly suited.to her voloo. That the lady by
her singing , will add to the luster of the
music is reasonably certain. Gporgo Boni-
face , jr. , enacts tbo part of Mons. Favart , a
character affording him a wide Hold for his
versatile powow. Miss Addio Cora Rood
has a pleasing Impersonation In Su anne ,
who is shy and pretty. Miss Horn Cook is
sure to be In her element as a good r.ntured
hostess , whoso duty and pleasure it
is to befriend the heroine when
that perplexed personage Is most in
need of a friend. William Blaisdoll is en
trusted with the important role of
Marquis du Pout-Sable a creation that
the the finished French comedian ,
Duchosne , llrst made familiar in the
palmy days of opera boutTo In the Parisian
original. American vocalists , actresses and
actors have vastly improved on the ancient
French methods , nnd Mr. Blahcioll may bo
safely trusted to make now and tolling
points in bis interprotalion of the marquis.
John Brand Is offered an abundance of exercise -
ciso for his mniralflcont volco as Lieutenant
Hector do Boispreau , and -Arthur E. Miller
has a congenial role In Major Cotlgnac. A
coherent dramatic story forms tne doslrnblo
groundwork of the libretto of "Madamo Fa
vart. " OfTdiibach , the famous composer of
comlq onoras. has written many musical
works , among which" may' bo mentioned
"Grand Dnchsss of Gorolstoin , " "Orpheus
in the Lower Hegious , " "Bluo Beard , " "La
Vie Pnrislonno , " "La Uavardo do Sara-
gesso , " "Ln Poricholo , " "Los Brigands , "
"Lo Coraairo.NoIr , " "La Jolio Parfumousc , "
"Voyaco dons la Lune , " "Lo Docteur Ox , "
"La Belle Helena , " and "Madame Favart. "
Tbo' last two are the most celebrated.

The experience of Tun Ben CI/UMS
IH'iiH u has brought out the fact that many
of its subscribers do not understand that the
Indian depredations act passed by the last
congress annulled all previous contract for
collecting claims under it. This' is a fact
that they .should know for their ow/i proteo
tlon. When tbo act was stunod all contracts
withagunU were made void by its teniu.
The holders of claims were then frca to make
such bargains with their agents as they
pleased , or could refuse to malio any bargain
at all.
The framers of the act found it necessary
to take this stop for thn protection of tha
claimants. At tha time when there seemed
little chance that such an act would ba
passed hundreds of claimants had contracted
with agents to pay outrageous fens lu case
the nionoy could bo collected. Cases are
known In which thoclalmants had contracted
to give up to the ngonts over ono-half the
amount collected. Cases in which one-third
was promised were not at all uncommon. To
allow tboso contracts to stand would make
the law not nn net of Justice , but , an act of
extortion for the benefit of the claim agents.
Tbo clause was inserted annulling alt the
contracts , good , bad and Indifferent , nnd
limiting the percentage to DO chnrfjod by
agents to in per cent , with nn extra G per
cent allowance for special cases. The claim
agents nnturnlly objected to this , assorting
that it was bovond the pmrors of congress ,
but the be3topinionof- , houses was tbnt
contracts made to collect claims , undqra law
that did.not exist could bo annulled in thse
On the 4tn of March , therefore , the claim
ants who bad signed contracts wore as frto
, from obligations to ngonts as these who had
not. If they were satisfied with their.agouts
and wished to sign n now contFact within thu
tof compensation fixed by the law , it
as their right , but ncno of thorn wcro
under nny legal 'obligation to do so. The
more unscrupulous of the agents naturally
represented to their clients that they were
bound to renew their contracts , with merely
Iho substitution of the terms named by law
for the outrageous commissions nt lirst de
manded. Cases have bean brought t the
attention of Tus Betr in which this
policy had bon lollowod succes Ily ,
by unscrupulous agents. They bad in award
bullied the claimants into ulrfiig tb'om whan
if tbo claimants bad understood that they
were free of obligation , they would have
chosen other representatives. As others nro
being worked upon in the same waytho
facts of the case nro sot forth for their pro
tectton. If they nro satisfied with the mon
they llrst chose they are right in ro-ongaging
them. If they are not satltled. they are fruo
to engage anbody they choose.
THE Br.u CIAIMS BUIIEAU was established
solely for the protection of tbo public. It
was ostublishod on account of the complaints
of Its subscribers who thought they were
being unjustly treated , and those , still moro
numerous , who applied to it to find a reliable
agent. It will collect the claims at only such
charges as will pay tbo expenses of the tu-
reau. It is expected that it will rarely hap
pen that tbo limit set by tbo law will ba
needed to pav the expense of collection.
Miny of the claims can doubtless be collected
for 5 per cent of their face. The bureau Is at
the service of the subscribers nod public nt ,
large. Tboso who take advantage of Us offer
will save monev by It , Tboso who do not
place their claims in its cbarga will save
money , too , for It has put u chock on the ra
pacity of the agents who would otherwise
fool free to take tbo last"pejiliy the law al

TUB Bur. BtmmuoFCf.iiMs In Washing
ton has done a good work for the residents of
this section In attending to the claims arising
under the Indian depredations act. It has
nvod these who hnvo taken advantage of It *
offer from the unconscionable charges of the
regular claim aconts , and has bonolltod the
others by forcing the agents to demand only
moderate foes In order to got lnislno.si. The
long delay ever the passage of the act had
given tba claim agents time to make con
tracts that would give them the lion's share
of the appropriation. Many of the claimants
liaa boon Induced to sign contracts guarantco-
ng the agent from 'ono-thlrd to over fi'J per
cent of the claims In case they wcro allowed.
Tbo depredations act annulled these o.xtor-
tlonato contracts and sot the limit of agents'
foes ut 15 per cent , to bo increased In certain
cases to 20 per cent on the order of the court
of claims.
But so many complaints were made of the
action of tbo ngonts , and so many inquiries
for a reliable agent were sent to this olllee ,
that it was decided to establish a bureau
under the direct charge of TUB I5ii : to pro-
octiw.subicrlbarj nnd give thu.n tha bjno-
11 ts of the law at the lowest possible charges.

court of claims goes on the plan , "llrst coma ,
lirst sorvoa , " nnd it oohoovcs .sufferers to
plnco their claims before the proper authori
ties at an early dato.
The contracts made before the passage of
the act have , as stated , boon annulled by con
gress. It Is therefore necosso.ry for claim
ants to maico now contracts or arrangements
with their agents , and they nro loft free to
engage now agents if they are not satisfied
with tboso they had engaged before. This
will enable them to make much more favor
able terms for themselves than wcro had
while the passage of the act was still in
The bureau has received the indorsement
of nil tno congressmen and ofllcluls who have
anything to do with the subject of claims.

Tan Bei'i Biwnxu OP Crypts , in dealing
with the claims arising under the Indian
depredations act , has boon successful In pro
tecting a largo number of subscribers and
others from extortion and loss. From com
plaints that have comu to It , hovvovor , It ap
pears that mauv of the claimants do not uu
derstand their position under the act. At a
time when there appeared to bo little chance
that congress would take up the claims or
uiako any appropriation to pay them , they
signed contracts with tbo Washington agents ,
promising from ono-quanor to ono-balf the
amount to the agent in case the money should
bo collected. In view of this extortion con-
grass inserted n provision in the net annul- '
ing all contracts and limiting the ngont's
commission to 15 or 20 per cont.
The claimants all probably understand that
the agent's commission lias been limited by
the law , but many of them , according to their
own statements , do not understand tbat they
nro frco to do as they please about employing
tbo agent they hod first choson. They con
sldor that they are still bound to employ the
agent with whom they stenod tbo oxor bitna
contracts whether they ura salulljJ wltti
him or not.
it was the indention of congress to protect
them at nil points nnd they were loft on the
passage of the act free to' do as they pleased
and employ whom they pleased. Section 9 of
the act stated : "Tbat all sales , transfers or
assignments of any such claims heretofore or
hereafter mndo , except such as have occurred
in tbo duo administration of decadents' 01
tales , and nil contracts heretofore made for
fees and allowances to claimants' attorneys
uro hereby declared void.
There could bo no mistake about the moan
ing of tills. All claimants bad to make now
contracts with agents after the passaco of
the act , and thuy were at liberty to omplov
any ono they pleased. If they were pleased
with the zeal and acts of their tint ix'ont
thov might make their now .contract , with
him. If they were dlssatlsod they might
cbooso any other agent that they pleased.
These who have not signed now contracts
.since the passage of the uot mav profit by
this to secure union better terms than they
could otherwise got from the ngonts. The
fuct that TIM : BBK BUHISAU U doing the work
for the baru oxpoudo involved has had n good
effect In moderating tbo charges of all agents
to these who know bow to protect thorn-
selves. For tlioso who distrust their ability
