Hi INJIS SATCHEL
W. H. Harris Carried a Grip Full of
Securities When Arrested.
A SCHEME TO SELL OrTICES
After Organizing a Jersey Corporation
and Getting x-l'oited States Treas
urer Huston Interested, Ho Ilor
rowed Cash Right ondLeft.
By the United Press.
Cincinnati, O., Deo. 13. Ex-United
States Treasurer J. N. Huston's cor
poration partner, William H. Harris,
was arrested here yesterday for larceny
Jn the first degree, under a charge pre
ferred in New York. It Is alleged that
Harris, as general manager of the Gen
eral Electric, Gas and Iron company,
of New Jersey, has defrauded the Mu
tual Reserve; Fund Life association, of
New York, to the extent of several
In 1891, at Connersvillle. Ind., Harris
organized the American Gas company
on a stupendous scale. It was Incor
porated under the laws of Indiana. J.
N. Huston, treasurer of the United
States under Harrison, was president of
the company, his son secretary and
treasurer, and Harris was general man
ager. The company is now In the hands
of a receiver.
When Harris was arrested a valise
was found In his room und taken to the
station house. This valise was opened
and found to contain $1,000,WO in Amer
ican Gas company stock.
General Harding, the Kentucky attor
ney, and General Huston arrived here
last night, and were closeted together
In the Emory hotel to devise the best
means of exonerating themselves from
the unpleasant connection their names
must necessarily have In the expose of
the American Gas company's affuirs
made certain by Harris' arrest. ,
Promises to Involve Big Men.
Harris Is today at the Police Station
hospital, very sick. This morning his
attorney, Colonel Mlchle, called at po
lice headquarters and demanded Har
ris' property, consisting of a canceled
31,000 promissory note, a gold watch
and some papers. There was no de
mand for the Btock. This requisition
was refused, on the plea that It was
held for court evidence.
A telegram was received from Inspec
tor McLaughlin, of New York, stating
that an officer would be here as soon
es papers In the case are completed.
Harris will make a fight against return
ing, but will be surrendered to the New
York authorities. He first became
known here when, in 18S0, he tried to
start a big brewery at Steubenvllle. He
then tried to start an insurance com
pany on the secret order plan.
He succeeded in organizing the Kana
wha Coal company, with a capital of
J150.000, and had well known Cincin
nati people on his list. This also fell
through He then tried other schemes,
and finally started the Southern Fuel
company, at Maysvllle, In 1S91. Har
ris then dropped out of sight, and was
forgotten until his arrest .
He Was Selling the Offices.
New York, Dec. 13. Willlan 11. Har
ris, who was arrested in Cincinnati on
a telegram from Inspector McLaughlin,
was indicted in November for grand
larceny In the first degree upon the
complaint of Charles F. Iilamlin, man
ager of one of 'the departments of the
Mutual Reserve Life Insurance asso
ciation, of this city. In his complaint
Mr, Blandln avers that he first met
Harris In this city on Feb. 9 'through
an advertisement. Harris represented
himself to be the owner of one-half
of the capital . stock of the General
Electric (las and Iron company, In
corporated under the laws of New Jer
sey, with a capltul stock of $5,000,000.
Harris said that $1,652,000 worth of
the stock had been Itaued at par, and
that he owned one-half the stock, which
he said was then worth $413,000. The
president of the company, he said, was
John M. Farquhar.
Harris said he wanted an advance of
$2,500, and that If he received the ad
vance he would bring about the elec
tion of Mr. Blandln to the post of sec
retary of the company, and that If Mr.
Farquhar retired from the presidency,
which he had an idea of doing, Mr.
Wanclin would.be elected president.
Blandln advanced the $2,500, and sub
sequently $5,000 more. He was not
elected secretary of the company, and
when Mr. Farquhar resigned the presi
dency, In June, he was not made presi
dent. Harris transferred one-half of his
holdings of the stock of the company
to Blandln, but Blandln says he has
since learned that the stock is worth
less. Harris had represented that the
company had no debts whatever, but
Blandln discovered that U owed Its
taxes In New Jersey, and In this state,
and had never puld any taxes what
Mr. Blandln nlrfo learned that Harris
entered Into un arrangements similar
to the one that he entered Into with
him, with Mrs.' Marie Raddle, and with
George F. Spi-lr. Mr. Blandln alleges
that he discovered that Harris had
formed a number of other companies
for the purpose of selling the stock un
der like circumstances, to would-be
secretaries and presidents of the com
panies. ROACHES IN HER HEAD.
Remarkable Story Told of a West ISethlc
By the United Press.
Hazleton, Dec. 13. Mrs. Emma Fly,
of No. 49 Canal street, West Bethlohem,
ils a woman of whom a most remarkable
Btorv Is told. She 'has lived for nearly
a week with seventeen live roaches in
her ear. On Sunday she first noticed a
peculiar sensation In her right ear. She
imagined lit to be the results of a oold
and applied a family liniment. She ob
IS EASILY LOST THROUGH
MGAMDby use or the
Si-"' Ls-r' w
tained no relief, however, and Soon be
g.m to suffer from a violent headache.
Hnr iiusband bought a bottle of cam
phorated oil and dropped the oil into
the ear. .Thl woman : felt better and
last Friday tie blew tobacco smoke into
the affected organ. ,
Then a startling discovery was made
when. a. live roaoh crept out and soon
others followed. With a hair pin sev
eral more were extracted, but they were
dead. Today the operation was re
sumed and more of the peats were taken
out. In all seventeen roaches were
lodged In the ear. Mrs. Fly Is nut much
Improved, however. She says she can
not hear at all, whereas before she
could distinguish loud sounds., and she
experienced a constant buzzing sound In
her head. She also suffers muoh from
headaolie. More of the camphorated
oil was poured liy until 'the passages
were almost clogged, and it Is 'thought
this Is the cause of her deafness. She
has no Idea how the insects got Into
her ear. Hlie says the house has been
full of roaches ever since the high water
of Sept. 8. Her only solution is that
they must have crawled into the ear
while she lay asleep in bed. The roaches
extracted were of various sizes.
Coxe Bros.'deny thut their mines will
close down for the. lemalmler of Decem
ber. It Is scml-oflU'lally stuteil that the No
vember earnings of the Illinois Central
were the largest of any month since the
close of the World's fair.
William F, Hallstead, general manager,
J. D. Archbahl, consulting engineer, und
Division Freight Agent W. A. Fleming, of
the Lackawanna, were in Buffulo Wed
nesday. The Cutbondale and Forest City Passen
ger Railway company Is anxious to begin
work on the Crystal hike road, but they
are handicapped by the fuct that they
have been unuble to get any right of way
fnto Carbondale. i
The Jersey Central railroad has just
completed a new building 20x50 feet In dl
mensolns near Munch Chunk, which Is to
be used as a hotel for coal and freight
crews whose homes are at the opposite
end of the lower division.
One of the. most beautiful calendars of
the New Year has been Issued by the
Lehigh Valley railroad. It Is headed by
a map showing the ramifications of the
system with views from hand drawings
of the scenery all along the route. It is
one of the prettiest things out but then
the Lehigh never does things by halves.
The report that the Reading Coal and
Iron company will close Its collieries on
Dec. 18 for the remainder of the month Is
denied by officials of the company, who
sny that, on the contrary, the present
policy of working, on half time three
days a week will be continued to the end
of the year at leust.
There Is every indication thnt the west
ern lines will begin the new year with a
firm Intention of maintaining the anti
pass agreement. Nearly one hundred
roads huve signed the agreement and
many of them have already sent word to
all agents to refrain absolutely from giv
ing any transprtation that can Influence
Henry Flosheim, owner of the Germanla
and Nottingham mines, at Flnleyvllle,
Washington county, Is the first coal oper
ator to take, advantage of the abroga
tion of the wage scale, and yesterday he
gave notice to his 700 employes that on
and after Dec. 17 the rate for mining will
be 55 cents per ton, a reduction of lk cents
from scale wages.
The story comes from reliable author
ity that the Vanderbllts are preparing to
complete the Beech Creek railroad to
Pittsburg and thus carry out the long
cherished plan to connect their eastern
and western lines in n. new place. The
Beech Creek railroad extends at present
from Wllllamsport to Mahuffey, which Is
In Clearfield county.
The anthracite situation generally Is
more or less encouraging, although there
Is no active demand at present and none
is likely until the present mild weather
gives way to a cold "spell." Calvin Par
dee, one: of the most prominent coal men
In the city, speuking of the situation In
Philadelphia the other day, said there Is
a distinct Improvement so far as har
mony among the various Interests Is con
cerned, and he anticipates further Im
provement in the near future. That the
restrictive policy now In force will be con
tinued he does not doubt, as any other
method would. bring ruin to some of the
anthracite coal Interests. The various
companies, he said, could mine at least
23 per cent, more than the market coulj
absorb, and were an unlimited production
allowed prices would certainly be carried
below the actual cost of mining, with the
result that the end would not be long de
ferred to certain producers. He believed,
however, that the danger of such dis
aster was past and that the future would
be an Improvement over the past.
Here Is the outline of another alr-llne
railroad fairy tule, which owes author
ship to the Pittsburg Post. You can be
lieve it or not, as you choose: The new
road Is called the Atlantic and Pacific Air
line, and It runs on paper In a bee line
from Gotham to 'Frisco. The distance
between tho two cities will be covered In
forty-five hours. The right of way has al
ready been secured aeroBS half a dozen
of the western states, and the route hus
been surveyed from the Delaware to
the Mississippi rivers. Construction work
Is to bo begun In the spring on the east
ern end, and the company hopes to see
thellni' completed as fur as Chicago within
the next five years. If the plan of build
ing tho road Is accomplished as It Is laid
out, It will be an Innovation In railroad
construction. It Is to be double track,
nnd there will be no grade crossings be
tween New York and San Francisco, ho
that there will be no place where a train
or a buggy can cross the track. A cleat
truck and consequently fast time Is the
object of such a feature. The distance
between New York and Chicago will be
covered In thirteen hours. W. L. Wallls,
a capitalist of Sharon, Pa., Is financially
Interested In the air line, and in a recent
interview hud the following to say about
the enterprise: "It will take many years
to complete the air line, but I am u firm
believer that It will be a success, and will
annihilate time between the two oceans.
The probable cost of the road will be at
least $400,000,0(10, and a bill Is being pre
pared that will be sent to congress asking
the government to Indorse the bonds, if
they will do this there Is an English syn
dicate ready to take $205,000,000 worth of
them. These bonds will bo Bold at par,
and 10 per1 cent.' of their value, or $40,-
000,000, will be held In reserve as a sinking
fund. I am In receipt of a letter from
W Ilium Dalllir, general manager, who
states that if the government does not
Indorso the bonds they will go on and
build the road as an Independent cor
poration. Mr. Dallln has just returned
from Sun Francisco, and stutes that Cali
fornia will furnish, free of cost, ample
terminals on the bay, and a strip of 106
feet across the entire state, with $1,000,000
subsidiary to be puld when the line A
completed. Nothing seems to stand In the
way of the air line being a success."
'' STOCKS AND BONDS.
By the United Press. ;
New York, Dec. IX Speculation at the
Stock exchango was mdre active ami
business was rather" better distributed
than for a long time past. The sales were
312,059 shares, of which Sugar figured for
the enormous total of 175,000 shares. Tho
practical defeat of the free sugar bill,
and the advance in refined today of 1-lCc.
per pound in the opinion of most operators
hardly accounts for the enhancement
noted. It will be remembered that Presi
dent Ilavemeyer In his famous interview
previous to the declaration of the regular
dividend, stated thut the trade was In
poor shape, and ordered the closing
down of all the trust refineries. Subse
quently the order was modified, nnd later
when the directors met he was overruled
In the matter of the dividend. This, it
Is clulmed, has created Internal dissen
sions and one of the biggest battles In the
history of this most phenomenul stock is
now going on. -
Notwithstanding the excitement in
Sngur, operutors paid considerable atten
tion to the railway list. The street has
come to the conclusion thut the senate
will pass the Patterson pooling bill, and
that, too,, at an early date. The Impres
sion also prevails thut the Rock Island di
rectors, who are to meet shortly, will see
their way clear to declare the usual divi
dend. Furthermore, eurnlngs this month
at least are likely to muke a good show
ing us comparer! with the corresponding
period lust year. The engagement of $:!,
500,000 gold for shipment to Kurope on
Saturday had no effect. The Improve
ment In prices ranged from V4 to 1V4 per
cent., and as a rule the best figures of the
day were current at the close. Specula
tion left oft strong. Net changes show
gains of '-2 to l'i. per cent., outside of
Sugar, which rose 374.
