A Former Teller Arraigned With Him, Charred With
The cashier and his son-in-law, a former
teller of the Toledo National Bank, are un
der arrest, charged withappropriatingS58.000
of the bank's money. The alleged crookedness
in the bank's accounts was discovered a
year ago, but no steps have been taken un
til this week, when the cashier was arrested
and arraigned before the United States Com
missioner, and his son-in-law, overtaken in
Chicago, brought home, and also bound over
rfrZCIAL TEI.EGKAH TO TUX DItFATCn.3
Toledo, O., November 5. A thunder
bolt fell in banking circles to-day, and an
other cashier has gone wrong. This time
the amount of the bank's deposits appropri
ated was $58,000 in cold, hard cash. The
culprit is E. B. Van Hoesen, until re
cently cashier of the Toledo Na
tional Bank. The arrest was made
Monday by United States Marshal Ben
F. Wade, bnt was kept shady until to-day.
when "Van Hoesen was quickly sneaked into
court before United States Commissioner
Hall, and arraigned for the crime. The
hearing was short and sweet, and resulted in
Van Hoesen's being bqund over for trial at
court His bail, which was fixed at S70.000,
was promptly furnished, but the names of
his bondsmen are unknown.
Van Hoesen is a popular man, and was
especially prominent in an organization
known as the National Union. Besides, he
belongs to several other secret orders. Van
Hoesen has a large family, most of the
children being married.
AX OLD TELLER IK THE TOILS.
J. M. McKee. who was arrested in Chi-
,cago last night, charged with complicity in
the crime, was formerly teller in the same
institution. O late years he has been down
on his luck, and has been treading the easy
highway that leads to a drunkard's grave.
A prominent Mason, he was taken in hand
by members of that body, and a lew weeks
ago was sent to the county inebriate asylum
at Chicago. McKee arrived in the city this
morning, in charge of a depnty United
States marshal, and was arraigned with Van
Hoesen. As in the former case, the ba.l
was fixed at $70,000, and was promptly fur
nished. The alleged crookedness of Mr. Van
Hoesen and his accomplice was discovered
about a vear ago. Bank Examiner Sulli
van, while examining the bank's books, dis
covered somethi sg was wrong, and an in
vestigation disclosed the true state of affairs.
Mr. Sullivan at once procured the necessary
THE CASHIEE'S AEEEST,
but before further steps were taken con
cluded to consult the stockholders of the
bank. He called a meeting and laid the
matter before them, assuring them that the
matter must at once be straightened up, or
the most extreme steps would be taken as to
the bank. The directors were astounded
and amazed, and at first refused to believe
the examiner's story, but when all the
proofs of their trusted official's peculation
were laid before them, they were forced to
realize me situation.
Mr. Van Hoesen begged to be shielded
from exposure, and after a couple of days
of consultation several of the stockholders
came to the front and put up for the defi
ciency. Mr. Van Hoesen was discharged
at once, H. Yonn ..becoming his successor.
The matter has 'remained in this state ever
since, i -til within the past few days, when
U was determined that the embezzling
cashier should be prosecuted. It is gen
erally believed that other levelopments of
an unexpected nature hava cropped out,
and that the bank officials Mere forced to
take the step to protect themselves. Neither
of the defendants are rieb, both, in fact,
being short of money. The United States
Commissioner has nothing to say, and re
fuses to be interviewed.
HE WHIPPED HIMSELF.
The Reason Why o Lawrencevlllo
Wlabed Do Ilndn't.
There is an old adage which says man
often makes a whip to beat himself. The
truth of the adage has been frequently dem
onstrated, bnt never more forcibly than in
the case of George Randal yesterday.
Three days ago Bandal made an informa
tion before Alderman Porter, charging
George Thomas, a colored waiter, with
surety of the peace. At the hearing yester
day there was no evidence to convict Thomas.
Bandal alleged that the waiter flourished a
long steel carving knife at him, threatening
to sever his jugular vein. Jfo one could be
found to corroborate the story, and the Al
derman discharged the case.
This verdict angered Bandal and he
glanced aronnd at the crowd, casting a
withering look upon James Jiles, proprietor
of the restaurant where Thomas was em
ployed. Shortly after Bandal went out of
the office, Jiles, with his friends, went down
the street to Alderman Donghty's. At the
'Squire's they met Bandal. He had made
an information belore the 'Squire accusing
Jiles with keeping a "speak-easy." Tnis
new tnrn surprised Jiles and he asked the
Alderman for an immediate trial. The
hearing was proceeded forthwith. The case
ended similarly to the former one. No evi
dence could be produced which reflected on
During the trial, Attorney Miller, who
was bondsman for Bandal on another case,
said to AldeVman Doughty:
"I surrender this man's hail." Bandal
looked askance with horror, and said: "You
don't mean to say that, do you 1" "Yes, I
do," said the lawyer.
Jiles had sued Bandal on Tuesday for
disorderly conduct, and Mr. Miller had
gone on his bail. After hearing the evi
dence in the "speak-easy" case he con
cluded to give Bandal over to the Alder
man, who committed him to jail until the
hearing, when he was fined 10 and costs or
30 days to the workhouse.

Terrible Experiences of the Crews of a
Conple of Teasels Rescued When
Beecno Seemed Almost Im
possible A Plocky
rSFECUI. TELXOEA TO THX DISPATCH.!
New Yoek, November 6. The new
steamship Atalanta, queen of the fruiters,
brought part of the crews of two tempest
tossed vessels into port yesterday. Among
them are E. S. Eldridge, a plucky Cape
1 Cod skipper, and his heroic young bride.
Susan. Captain Eldridge left Savannah,
October 17, in command of the lumber-laden,
three-masted .schooner Spotless.
She was a stanch craft, and had battled
successfully with all sorts of bad weather
for lour years, under her young master.
But she could not stand the storm that
struck her just north of Hatteras, on the
afternoon of October 23. The Spotless was
husreinir the coast when the awful blast,
which was preceded by a heavy
rain, came rattling out of the
southeast Cantain Eldridire had main
sail and spanker reefed, and headed off
shore, fearing the mighty blow would drive
him into the breakers. The wind shifted to
northeast and howled like a steam calliope.
Brave little Mrs. Eldridge came on deck
and enjoyed the riot ot the wind and waves
until they began breaking over the vessel.
The vessel was laboring heavy and leaking
badly. By dawn there were six feet of
water in her hold. The lifeboats were torn
'from their davits and broken to bits Four
sailormen lashed themselves to the pumps.
They pumped for 2-i hours. Their hands
were then a mass ol misters. .Mrs. .ttldridge
fed the men at the pumps. She
fonnd that her skirts interfered
with her movements, and she put on a suit
of her husband's clothes. The vessel was
settling fast, despite the brave efforts of the
pumpers. By midnight she was nearly
flush with the seas, which swept over her so
frequently that all hands were forced to
seek shelter in the cabin. The pumpers
were so much used up that they could not
All things eatable except some canned
goods and a few potatoes were spoiled by
the invading seas. Mrs. Eldridge found a
few dry matches and lit an oil stove. The
vessel was tossed about so that she was un
able to keep on her feet, so she lashed her
self to a sofa and cooked the potatoes in the
oil stove, while lying down. At daybreak
it became apparent that the only hope
wonld be in the main rigging, which was
still secure. Susan helped the sailors to
take lood aloft and fasten it there.
Just as everybody was preparing to
clamber into the rigging the Atalanta, bound
for Jamaica, hove in sight. Captain El
dridge signalled for assistance, and the At
lanta's skipper, Charles Cook, also a
down-easter, saw and answered the signals.
Captain Eldridge and his wife hugged each
other with much enthusiasm when the Ata
lanta headed their way. Of course Mrs.
Eldridge was taken off first,
INCREASING THE STOCK
Allegheny Light Company Preparing to Put
Their Wires Underground.
There will be a meeting of the stockhold
ers of the Allegheny County Electric Light
Company, held at the office of the company
on January 4, to consider the matter of in
creasing the capital stock. The business of
the company has increased so rapidly witHin
the past year or two, that it has been fonnd
necessary to make some changes. The stock
holders will be made acquainted with the
business of the company, what increases
may be expected in the near future, and
they will then be asked to determine what
additional capital is necessary.
In March, 1886, the company had placed
150 16-candle power and a very small num
ber of arc lights. Now they have over
28.000 incandescent lights and about 800 aro
lights. The indications are that these
figures will be increased 50 per cent within
the next year. They have also about 200
single horse power motors in various build
ings throughout the two cities. The desire
to increase the capital stock is also prompted
by a possibilitv of the company being com
pslh?ri to put thejrwijsnndsrgrjjnnd!. An f
official of the company said yesterday 'thai
while they did not anticipate being com
pelled to put their wires under ground, they
desired to be prepared for an emergency.
He thought it was only a matter of time
until all wires in the business portion of the
city would be put down.
THEIR NOMINATIONS HADE.

Allegheny's Death List.
There were 165 deaths in Allegheny dur
ing the month of October, a gain of 15 over
the same month last year. There were 59
cases of typhoid fever last month, 32 of
which resulted latally. There were 7 deaths
from apoplexy last month, an unusually
large number from this disease.
BEING due to the presence of uric
acid in the blood, is most effectually
cured by the use of AVer's Sarsapa
rilla. Be sure you get Ayer's and no
other, and take it till the poisonous
acid is thoroughly expelled from the
system. We challenge attention to this
"About two years ago, after suffering
for nearly two years from rheumatic
pout, being able to walk only with great
discomfort, and having tried various
remedies, including mineral waters,
without relief, I saw by an advertise
ment in a Chicago paper that a man had
been ralieved of this distressing com
plaint, after lone suffering, by taking
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I then decided to
make a trial of this medicine, and took
it regularly for eight months, and am
pleased to state that it has effected a
complete cure. I have since had no re
turn of the disease." Mrs. E. Irvine.
Dodge, U0 West 125th St., New York.
"One year ago I was taken ill with
inflammatory rheumatism, being con
fined to my house six months. I came
out of the sickness very much debili
tated, with no appetite, and my system
disordered in every xtav. I commenced
using Ayer's Sarsaparilla and began to
improve at once, gaining in strength
and soon recovering my usual health.
I cannot say too much in praise of this
well-known medicine." Mrs. L. A.

No Department of Our Business
Has given greater evidence of the approval of the people than our
Hat Store. We have revolutionized the hat tiade of the city,
Never retailing a hat for more than the wholesale price, and
sometimes selling hats for less than any hatter in town can
buy same quality,for we are constantly on the alert to close
out big lots at closer prices, and as the opportunity
comes we buy them low and sell them low. Our cus-
tom is not confined to the cheap and medium grades.
We have as fine hats as any fashionable hatter can,
show, but we don't charge an extra dollar
or so for
300 TO 400 MARKET STREET.
EVERY READER should know that, owing to our already immense
and still rapidly increasing trade, we can, and positively do, name prices
way below the ordinary dealers who buy and sell in the ordinary way.
Our vast business is a wonder to
prices and onest goods built it up.
