Tenth Year
IN Iff YORK CITY
Over Forty Million Dollars
Were Taken In.
ALL FOUGHT FOR PLACE
Tbe Syndicate Piomistd 10 Per Oent Per
Week   on   Deposits,  and Many
Brooklynites Went Wild.
Now York, Nov. 24.��� William F.
Mtlller, head of the Franklin syndicate
which hns accepted the deposits cf
thousands of persons in Brooklyn under promise of paying dividends of 10
per cent, a week or 020 per cent, per
annul!,, and Cecil Leslie.his secretary,
���were indicted by tho King's County
grand jury this afternoon. Warrants
were issued for the arrest of these men,
hut up to a late hour tonight neither
had heen found, the police saying they
disappoarsd in tho afternoon.
Tonight the police under Captain
Reynolds, chief of detectives in Brooklyn, and Inspector Branuan and Police
Captain Lee, raided the premises occupied by the Franklin Syndicate on
Lloyd Street. There was a great crowd
of people around tho building as the
police surrounded it. Inspector Bren-
nan arrested Louis Miller, tbe head of
the syndicate nnd proprietor of Ihe concern, Thero were 40 employees engaged at work in the offices and they v ere
allowed to go. It was stated by Louis
Miller to the police that the offices
were then in tho hands of ex-Sheriff
Daly, of Richmond, to whom, he said,
the concern had assigned.
Miller had been engaged for the past
two years or so in offering his glittering inducements to the people to invest their money lor him to make use
of, but it has been only within the last
mouth that hy extensive advertising
iu one way or another ho lias managed
to attract to his offices hundred? of
people daily, who gathered in a long
line or fought w ith each other for the
opportunity to hand out their  savings.
Miller began the Franklin syndicate
in a very small way, locating his office
amongst tho poorer classes in the borough of Brooklyn, aud making one
feature of his business the acceptance
of very small sums of money and the
alleged investment of them for the
poor pdople. He claimed that by inside tips on tho stock market he was
able lo reap a large por centage for
his client. Seemingly he paid the interest ou the principal each week and
his business increased. It is claimed
that Millar was simply the representative of a syndicate of men who had engaged in conducting blind pools for
years. No syndicate has ever attempted to pay any such wonderful rates of
interest as the Franklin syndicate.
The very fact that the newspapers
and financial circles began to make investigations aroused public interest to
such an extent and at the same time,
in some quarters, the publio cupidity,
that it is said witihu the last week
Miller has received deposits aggregating a daily amount of from $110,000 to
$40,000.
One of Miller's tiustcd employees is
responsible for the statement that (he
Franklin syndicate had taken in over
$40,000,000. It is known that when
the bauks shut down on him yesterday
and refused to accept his deposits any
longer, that he withdrew $100,000 from
the Wells, Fargo Bank. It is asserted
touight that Miller has deposited
$100,000 with tho German Consul.

Hubert, of Hast Boston, The police
went to Miss Hobert's house today and
found plates for $1. $2 and $5, Canadian bills, |4,800 in finished money and
(14,800 unfinished, Ono lot was drawn
on the Bank of British North America
and the other lots wero on othor Canadian banks.
DIVOBCB AND SUICIDE.
Detioit, Mich., Nov. 24.���George
Brooks, this afternoon shot bis divorced wife three tin.es at her home, 221
Sherman Street. He then rushed ou
the Grand Trunk Railroad tracks, adjacent, and shot himself dead. The
woman may recover, although wouud-
ed in tho neck, shoulder and body.
The shooting was dono after a short,
stormy iuterviow   between the couple.
THE MOL1NEUX TRIAL.
Now York, Nov. 24.���The trial of
Roland B. Molineux still drags its
slow length along before Recorder
Goff. Today, the ninth day, of the
trial,was singularly devoid of interest.
Oue'iuore juror was secured late iu
the day, thus putting in the jury box,
seven of the requisite twelve.
MAIL ROBBERS SENTENCED.
Halifax, N. S., Nov. 24.-Edward
West, charged with stealing from mail

The accused was said to have repre
sented that foreign Governments had
purchased his inventions. In ivpport
of this statement he forged various
documents, and succeeded in obt lining lnrge sums of inorey. As he has
already been in custody for threo
months,the term of imprisonment will
be lessened to that extent.
A BIG TRUST COMPANY.
Montreal, Nov. 24.���A big trust
company hns boeu formed here lo bo
known as tho Royal Trust Company of
Montreal, with a subscribed oapital of
$000,000, half of wliich hns been paid,
but authorization will be asked of tho
Qnebeo Legislature nt the next session,
to increase the capital to $0,000,000.
The executive is composed of tho most
prominent men in Canada. Among
them are Lord Stiathcomi, Sir William
Van home, O. M. Hays, O. B, Hos-
mer, W. W, Ogilvie, E. S. Oloustou,

in the accuracy of their aim, during
the charge of the British infantry. All
admit, however, that the victory
could net be oroperly followed up, and
utilized, owing to tho want of sufficient cavalry. The pursuit of the defeat- |
ed enemy by tho Ninth Lancers was
evidently not very effective aud, curiously enough, while all tbe correspondents report the capture of Boer guus,
Lord Methuen's own report omits any
mention of such an achievement. On
the whole it almost seems safe to assume that the Boer guns wero not captured.
The striking proof offered of the excellent material General Methuen has
in his brigade, has, however, been a
matter of great satisfaction in London.
Thero is un unconfirmed runior that
the correspondence seized in the Boer
camp contains evidence of treasonable
communication betweeu the Boer and
Dutch colonists.    One statement says:
"The remnant of the Boer army
sought to escape towards the Orange
Freo State territoiy."
The correspondent of the Times, at
Belmont, says:
"After the struggle, the laager was
burned and the ammunition destroyed;
Cavalry ana mounted infantry on
both of the flanks pursued the army
but wero unable to overtake the retreating Boers who got away with
their transport. The Boer rout was j
complete and their losses are believed
to equal ours. They used some dumdum bullets. Everything was in their
favor. It is rumored that there havo
been some threats to assaassinate Burghers who nre tired of war und are
deserting.''

the bout takes place then. This would

of the potato crop, which is above tho
August figures.
MILLS RE-APPOINTED.
Toronto,Ont., Nov. 24.���Hon. David
Mills, Minister cf Justice, has been reappointed  professor  of   constitutional
law at Trinity University,
Pretoria, Nov. 24.���Through the
courtesy of the Transvaal authorities,
tho correspondent ot the Associated
Press here in the company of Mr.
Goehler under Secretary for Foreign
Affairs and Mr. Desouse, Secretary of
the War Department, waa enabled to
visit Mr. Churchill today at the mode]
school, which serves as a prison aud
where he i��� with the captured officers.
Beyond a slight bullet wound in the
right hand, ho seemed well and looked
hearty, although naturally chafing under enforced idleness. Iu the course of
the interview, he said :
"The Boers have treated us with
much kindness. This was the case
from the first. They praisod our do-
fence of the trnin and expressed surprise that the locomotive was Baved
from becoming a hopeless wreck, as
they expected under their artillery
fire. We wore then marched through
a pouring rain to Oolenso, proceeding
the next morning tog tho Boer camp
near Ladysmith and then going by rail
to Medderspruit, finally arriving here
ou Nov. IH. On the journey great
numbers of Burghers crowded to see
us, but tbere was only one who made
insulting remarks, the others offering
us cigarettes or showing such marks of
attention."
Mr. Churchill said tbo confinement
in tho model school was close and so-
vero, but under all the conditions, he
had no grounds to complain. When
asked regarding his general impression, he suiil he had had many discussions with the Boers as,to lhe rights of
the war and had been much impressed
by the number who could speak English. Ho had found that most of them
regretted the conflict, asserting that
if had arisen as the result of misrepresentations, So far as he could learn,

FIGHT AT BELMONT.
London, Nov. 20.���The Daily Mail
publishes the following dispatch from
Belmant, describing the battle.
3 "The Boers held apposition which
British troops would bold against almost any force. The Boers were routed completely. Many estimates put
the Boers loss at 000 killed aud 100
wounded. Mr. Knight, correspondent
of tho London Morning Post, was
wounded. The Boer prisoners are ignorant, dirty aud wretched. They say
that half theii commando are tired of
war and will lefuso further service.
The brunt of the fearful fight was
borno by tbe infantry, who were obliged to climb 000 feet straight into a
terrific stream of missiles.
"Tho Ninth Lane, ri p.usued the enemy with great vigor, but the Boers,
well mounted and familiar witb the
hills, melted beforo them. Possibly,
however, the victory wonld have been
more decisive bad we possessed more
cavalry.''
SPEECH BY KirLlNG.
London, Nov. 24.���Mr. Rndyanl
Kipling, addressing a branch of tue
Navy League this evening at Rotten
dean, Brighton, said the object of the
league was to create a certain pnblic
opinion, which' should announce its
willingness to pay taxes in older that
the British Navy might be efficient
and strong, and miglit not fail the
British people in tbe hour nf need.
"Wo did not realize what our navy
meant," said the speaker,."until we
saw it takinsg away a small police detachment nf (10,0110 men with mules,
horses, aud huudreds of tons of stores
to get nt some people who have interfered with our idea of what is right
and wrong at a distance ot 11,000 miles
from us."
KRUGER   ADMONISHED.
Palis, Nov. 24,��� Turning to the situation in China, and the recent incidents in Hwang Chan Wan province,
the French Minister of Foreign affairs,
reviewed in the Chamber of Deputies,
tho concessions obtained by other nations, and said Fraud's share had
been inferior to Great Britain's, adding:
"We took what we think is the most
convenient spot. But, we must husband our resources tor such efforts as
onr vital interests may render necessary. Our immense empire and frontier in China ought to keep us from
impatient enterprise which might cost
us dearly. Tho partition of China is
(not imminent. Russia has reached Pe
Chi Li because she has not met with
gieat resistance. Our zone of influence
lies beyond Tonkin. The poiut in dispute is iu a poor province, but what ii
important to us is thut China has undertaken not to yielii the neighboring
provinces to the influence of any ono
power." Tne statement was greeted
witb cheers. "We must seek to maintain the open door. "
Referring lo the Transvaal, tbe Foi-
eign Minister said he favored mediation aud arbitration, but did not deem
it opportune to lake tho initiative 88
the powers had not yet signed Tho
Hague protocol. Touching upon tho
lingering newspaper strictures ua to
the Fasbodn settlement, the Minister
remarked :
"3oino|| papers make it a business of
dwelling upon national humiliation.
The Government took a decision which
it was quite justified in doing, and a
subsequent treaty gave France vast territory and consolidated our African
empire, The Government's ^adversaries wish France to be powerful in Europe and insist that she ought to intervene everywhere. They unceasingly
demand torritoiial aggrandisement, as
if we did not havo already an Immense colonial empire to develop. We
shall consult tho country's interest uml
not seek doubtful popularity, When
the Government  considers where our
vital interests lie,and the fact that the
population rrf France increases lint little, it comes to the conclusion that it
ought rather to devote its efforts to
maintain what is acquired rather
than seek aggrandizement"
United States Impress Upon Him He
is Behaving Badly,

situation in Natal remains unchanged,

regarded with anxiety   in view of  the I
impossibility of Lord   Methuan   being'
able to relieve tbe town  for some time
to come.
Throngs of perplo wero waiting at
the War Office last evening until a

that Mr. Greenway will have nil the
power of his old ally against him.
Whether this and the dissatisfaction
witb the foreign immigration policy of
tho Liberals will be sufficient to overcome tho defences of an experienced
campaigner like Mr. Greenway, we
can only know for certain from tho result itself; but if the Government is

IT WOULD  SPELL RUIN.
"Tho Provincial Government is
quietly taking a hand in the Slocan labor situation," say Tbe Rossland Record, "and by the tacit threat ot doubling tho output tax it will endeavor to
make the mine owners of that district
reopen their properties.''
If the Government desires to complete the roin of the mining industry
tin mghont Southern British Columbia
it will do this, but not otherwise uu
less the members of it have takeu
leave of their senses. It may be without a single spark of sympathy for tho
owners who supply the capital without which our mines would be as valueless as holes in the air; wo have many
indications, on tho other hand, that it
is prepared to go almost any length
to ingratiate itself with the labor vote :
but there nre bounds to its recklessness,
and ono of these will surely save it
from the perpetration of this   outrage.
A double tax would probably have
tho effect of closing every mine in the
Province, if only as a protest against
the injustice of it. Bnt even though it
might not affect production, on what
principle of equity or reason, on what
ground of public policy, could it justify suoh action? What have tho mine
owners dene that they should be punished with a fine of one per cent, on
the gross output of their properties t
Aud on what plea of right or justice
can the Government presume to range
itself on the side of the Unions iu thoir
effort to get the mine owners under
their feet? Tbe present labor trouble
is a most unfortunate one in many respects, and is injuriously affecting the
general business of tlio countiy. It
may be that it calls for Government
interference, but as an arbitrator rather than as au advocate or partisan. If
the Government is disturhed over the
sitnatiou and anxious to restore harmony,'let it reconsider the legislation
that has been tho cause of all the tron
ble, and determine to so modify it that
there shall be a measure of fairness for
both sides alike. Tbat will be bettor
than imposing a lino on men for standing up in defence of their own legitimate inteiests. Tlie mine owners of
British Columbia are not criminals,
and tbey are not to be treated as such.
The Miner does net profess to bo as
familiar with the laws of British Colnmbia as is The Victoria Colonist,
tut it does not require to be told that
a more declaration of intention to become naturalised will uot entitle an
alien to have bis name enrolled on a
voters' list. It still believes that the
immediate and main purpose of those
Boundary Creek aliens, in petitioning
to have our naturalisation laws simplified, is to fraudulently qualify
as voters. If compelled to appoar
beforo n Judge, there is danger
that the fraud might not be successfully carried out; but if minor officials were qualified to receive and act npon applications for citizenship, there would be no difficulty
in arranging for affidavits of three
years or thirty years' residence.
Among the leaders of those Boundary
Creek aliens are men whose Coeur
d'Alene experience would shame them
if thev were to stick at such a trifle
as perjury.

Our Rossland namesake is too delightfully suspicious for anything
The St. Paul Globe lefers to Mr. F.W.
Poten, who has beon visiting tbat city,
as an official of the O. P. K., to confer
with the Grand Northern people in regard to a readjustment of certain rates,
as "a prominent mining capitalist of
Nelson.' The bold, bad Mr. Peters has
gone disguised, and of course, must j
be engaged in some nefarious conspiracy against the well-being and happiness of the people of Kootenay. The
Rossland paper does not stop to reflect
that The Globe reporter would rather
many times over come into association
with a "prominent mining capitalist," than a mere railway official, and
that the description is all his own,conceived in his insatiable desire to magnify things.

A general election in liko death;
however much it may he expected, it
comes suddenly when it does come. A
general election in Manitoba has been
regarded as even more than probable
(or several months past, find that in
spite of Ministerial denials that a dissolution was contemplated. Now it is
on. On Thursday of next week, tin
80th, nominations will he held, and
balloting a woek later To those out
sido of Manitoba the ri'Hult cau have
little interest, excepting as an indication of what may be expected from
thnt Province in the wider general
election wliich concorns tho whole oi'
Canada.
Mr. Greenway has been Premier
sinoe 1888, Luck has favored him in
past elections; this one he is obliged
to light purely on his merits. There
is no doubt of his strength, for whelh-
er by accident or design he has given
tho people of Manitoba many things
they most dehired. He has opposed to
him on this occasion, however, a leader of exceptional popularity. Mr. Hugh
J. Macdonald has not been a member of
tlio Legislature, although appointed
loader of the Opposition. Bnt he is
well known, and will make a strong
fight. Galicians and Doukhobors have
been imported into the Proviuce in
such large numbers that thero is danger of the English-speaking voters be
ing swamped when they become nat-
utalized, Mr. Macdonald contemplates
this prospect with some dismay, aud
some months ago announced thut he
was opposed to enfranchising them
until they had educated themselves into u knowledge of responsible government according to Hiitish methods.
This is proving to be a popular plunk
in his platform, as might reasonably
aud properly be supposed.
In the first year of his Premiership,
Mr, Greenway introduced tbo Northern Puoillo into Manitoba, under circumstances that were suspicious at the
time and nuve beon regarded with suspicion ever since. Iu former elections
be was rewarded by having hucIi in-

NELSON DAILY MINER, SATURDAY,  NOVEMBER 25,  1899.
(jAFT. WAIKWBIGHT GETS THREE
MONTHS' IMPRI30KMEH-T.
Tin Prisoner's Brother Pays Iu Pull the
Araojut oF the Liabilities���Only
One Oharge Prosecuted.
Oaptain Wainwright was brought up
at Police Conrt yesterday morning
charged with having ut Nelson, on tha
7th day of November, unlawfully unrl
hy false pretences obtained from Lillie
Bros,, the sum of $5, with intent to
defraud,
Police Magistrate Urease presided,
Chief of Police Jarvis conducted the
prosecution, and the prisoner was de-
feuded by Mr. \V. J. Galliher.
Thos. Lillie was tho lirst witness
examined, He deposed that he was a
member ot the firm of Lillie Bros.,
nnd knew Wainwright. He saw him
lust on the 8th ot October. On the
evening of the 7th tho prisoner came
lino the store tm,i issued a cheque on
the Hunk of Montreal for $5 for goods
purchased on September ""old, and half
un hour afterwards presented another
(���limine for $5 which witness cashed.
(Cheque produced nnd identified). The
cheques were presented at the bank on
the morning of the 8th, bat there were
no funds to meet them.
Cross examined by Mr. Galliher,
witness said that he hud the cheques
two or three days in his possession. He
positively identified the cheque on
which he advancod tlm cash and also
that tendered in payment, of goods.
Wainwright said nothiup, at the time
about expecting money, but ho did afterwards. Witness understood that
the prisoner had boon drinking rather
heavily ut the time, but had not seen
him drinking.
J. A. Macrae deposed that he was
ledger keeper for the Bank of Montreal, and that he knew Wainwright
to see him. Wainwright had no account with the bank. Several cheques
issued by Wainwright had been presented at the bauk including two from
Lillie Bros.
This concluded the evidence for the
prosecution and no witnesses were
called for the defence. Mr. Galliher
raised the point lhat there was no evidence to show that llio cheque was issued in Nelson or within the jurisdiction of the court. Noither was thore
any proof that the signature to the
cheque wns the signature of Wain-
wiighl, or that the man who signed it
was Wainwright the prisoner.
Mr. Crease���I noticed the points you
mention, but yon must remember that
the Chief of Police is not a lawyer,
and has nut presented the case as a
lawyer probnhly would. But tlie cheque
has been identified as tlio cheque handed to Lillio in his store, and by Wain-
wtight. However, I will take a note
of your objections.
Mr. Galliher���I submit, that because
the chief is not A lawyer, und did- not
submit his case as a lawyer would,it is
no reason why my client shonld suffer.
Mr. Crease���I have taken a note of
your objections, but I must overrulo
them, on tho ground that tho pjejeral
tenor of the evidence goes lo prove that
the cheque was issued iu Nelson and
that Wainwright was the man who issued it.    I tiud him guilty.
Mr. Galliher then proceeded to address the court in extenuation of the
penalty. Ho said that tho prisoner
hud, as a niutt.-r of fact, cabled for
money to Knglnud, to help him out of
his troubles, Restitution was being
made, and all tho i.nrties would be settled with���Lillio as well as the others.
The prisoner's brother wns iu town
and was anxious to get him out of tho
country. If his honor came to the conclusion thai the oharge had been proved, it was within his power to let the
prisoner out on suspended sentence,
and couusel suggested that by si.eh a
course the ends of justice would bo
met.     All the   parties would be   paid.
Mr. Crease���That might mitigate tho
olT'enoe in some eases, hut bore n number of cheques havo been issued.
Mr. Galliher���You have only one before you.
Mr. Creaso���The merchants of this
town appear to be made a prey to this
sort of thing and I cannot allow any
sentimental feelings to influence me
in the case. 1 have a duty to perforin,
and the public must be protected.
The full limit for this offence is six
months' imprisonment. However, I understand that restitution has heen
made in several cases. Tho sentence is
three months' imprisonment in the
common jail with hard labor.
THAT WHARF OF OURS.
The Missing Planks Havo Been Replaced by Now Ones.
In conversation wilh Mayor Neelands yesterday, his worship expressed
the opinion to a Miner reporter, that
the City Wharf was quite snl'o for tra-
Die at present.
"1 go down there at least twice a
week," said his worship, "and when
I see a plank broken I have it taken up
and a now one put iu its plnco. Thero
is not a broken plank there now, and I
consider it quitu snfe. We had to tako
the wharf over from tho Government
as it was. Thoy wrote to us stating
thai if we   did   not do so they  wonld
repairs until  it is
olose it np, or remove th,. planks, so
.that they would not be responsible,and
, they did not give us long to make hp
onr minds either. When wo took it
over wo repaired it, but of course ii
will want regulat
properly replanked,
"You know there is r. petition uoing
the rounds praying thn Council to submit a by-law to raise funds to put tho
wharf in u thoroughly satisfactory
state," remarked the Miner man.
"Vis," replied his worship,���'but we
could not possibly submit the by-law
at the same time as those we passed ou
the other night, or raise the mouey
this year. We couid not get the thing
done beforo our term of office expires.
The new Council can easily raise the
money on tho general revenno of next
year. I am of the opinion that a woik
such as this should uot he submitted to
the people in the shape ,>f a hy-law,
but that the money necessary should
come out. of the general revenue. I
have no estimate as to what-the cost of
the work would ho. Some think the
wharf should bn made the width of
the street, but I am of the opinion that
were it to bo widened to sny 8(1 feet,
instead of Ih feet as at present, ii
would serve all purposes."
His worship concluded by saying
that he believed the wharf was now
qoile safe for traffic.

at the park site yesterday, an d reporls
that there is considerable level and
cleared ground in the forty acres on
which tlm Oity has an option at Me-
Leod's ranch. There is the ranch
fairly well cleared, and a number of
Chinese gardens, all within the plot
which the City may seloct. There is
no big limber on the ground, so that
it can bo easily cleared. Mr. Dill will
probably inspeot the other park site nt
tho head of Stanley Street today.
A trench was yesterday dug across
Baker Sireet at Stanley Street, for the
laying of gas mains The thoroughfare
is in a wretclu d condition at present
owing to the heavy rainfall and the
constant digging up for gas, water and
sewerage connections. There is a
general demand for maoadamized roadways, which no doubt well be provided by next year's City Council.- The
Mayor and Aldermen fully realize tbe
necessity for good roadbeds, hut in
view of all the excavations which were
neoessary this year, they deoided to
defer action for tho present.
A wild-goose chase on Ward, Street,
near the. Hotel Home, was the course
of considerable excitement and no
Utile niirlh yesterday. A fine fat
goose was ibservod hovering o'er head,
and among other sports who longed
for a shot at the bird were Messrs.
Procter aud Gamble. But while they
were debating the chances of securing
a rifle in time, the goose took the silly
notion of "swooping." In the swoop
thu bird struck the telegraph wires,
was stunned, aud fell into the arms of
a youug lad on the sidewalk. Mr. Procter was on the spot in an instant, and
his keen eye at once detected that the
biid was of the domestic class. A local phrenologist examined it and declared that the bmnp of caution was
fully developed, adding thnt no doubt
the goose realized tho approach of
Christmas and wus trying to evade the
carving knife. It was om of Mrs.
Stevenson's flock.

New lork, Nov. 24. ���William Anthony, better known as "Brave Bill"
Anthony,died at the Presbyterian Hospital, this afternoon, half an hour after lie had swallowed a quantity Of cocaine,
William Anthony was the man who,
on February 15, 1898, when the battleship Maine was blown up in Havana
harbor, reported to Captain Sigsbee in
the words:
"Sir, I have the honor to report that
llio ship has beeu blown up, aud is
sinking.''
On his return to this country, An-
thouy was accorded receptions everywhere. He received many invitations
from cities to be their guest. For
months he traveled over the country
being accorded the honors of a horo.
In one of Anthony's eout pockels
was found a letter written by him to
his aunt, which read that he was discouraged and disconsolate and was going to end it all. Among the articles
found were a picture of his one-month-
old child, ou tho back of which was
written, "Bury this with me."

An Investigation Will be Made of

Vancouver, is in tho city on his way
to Republic, Wash., to thoroughly investigate the case of Martin Everett,
the man now held by the Canadian authorities at Kamloops. It is not unlikely the outcome of this caso will be
a demand made on the Canadian an-
ihorities for the extradition of Everett, as it is alleged ho wus brought
over from the American side into Canadian territory, without the proper
hearing ou the southern side of the
boundary line first.
It was alleged that Everett held up a
stage neai Grand Forks, and in order
to save the trouble there would be
about the matter the American officers
simply handed Everett over to Constable Diusniore, and it is even said
thu arresting officers disregarded a
writ of Habeas Corpus, and other interferences of the law. Consul Dudley's investigation will be to get to Ihe
loot of the whole matter.
