the defaulting bookkeeper, will be ar
raigned lor trial Monday. Hi attorney,
Mr. Angel, intimated today that the de
faulter would throw himself on the
mercy of the court. The attorney say
Seely received not more tban 10,(X'0 of
the money stolen from the bank, which
was given to him in sums ranging from
f.S to t-00, for which Frederick Baker
took hi note. Mr. Angel added :
"I have in my jiossesion mIkhH half a
dozen of these notes, their aggregate
amount living l-UX). Sooty told me today
that he thought linker would make good
the stealings, aa Merritt, linker' clerk,
had told him that Haker w;i worth over
l.'iOO.OOO, nearly all of w hich w as in real
estate. When Seely asked Ituker would
put hitu off saying that til property was
in inch a condition that it could not le
sold except at a great sacritlce. After a
time, Seely wye, he saw the situation
liecoming more hopeles with each pass
ing day, but ttii eem to have mu no
difference to Haker, w ho continued draw
ing money from tho bank until Seely
warned him b desist."
The tory of Seely' Might from thi
city, hi aimlos wandering before
reaching Chicago, and hi meeting w ith
McKarlnnd, who delivered him over to
the police, was one in which terror and
Ingratitude are most strongly blended.
Lawyer Anel relate that Seely loft the
hunk for tho last time, after so fixing hi
IkkiU that, by comparison with those of
tho paying teller, flio exact amount of
the defalcation could have been discov

gel, did he ever maka any attempt to
disgmsa himself. i'.n whs all tho while
in a condition bordering on mental col
lapse. Seely suid :
"I did not run away, becaue 1 wa

Kstee to the committee. Kstee said the
only thing for the republicans to do wit
t') light lor honest elections. He said
they must act now, and that though a
recount in an Kraneisco might nni-arth
only a small amount ol the frauds com
mitted it would at least show whether
tliero bad been an open violation of the
elective franchise in counting the ballots.
The epeaker then referred to certain
precincts in San Krancisco, in which
irregularities are admitted and fraud
are appirent. The burden of his speech
w as that these alleged frauJs bad been
committed under the administration of
the democratic board of election com
missioner, all of whom were canddiate
for re-election, and that the presump
tion wa that such frauds had been com
mitted in the interest of tho democratic
candidates. After a severe arraignment
of w hat he called the democratic ma
chine io San Krancisco, he demanded a
recount, declaring it was a case of the
honest voter of the country against the
corruption of the city. He referred
lirielly to the case of Representative Hit
born, in w hose case he said the democrat
did not hesitate to go behind the return
w hen they had the opportunity to oust
him and seat a democrat in conclusion,
after again demanding a recount. Kstee
said he would rather be beaten by fraud
than elected by fraud. After considera
ble discussion following Kstee' speech
the committee appointed a lub-com-mittee
of even member, w ith instruc
tion to make all arrngementa to go be
fore the state legislature and demand a
recount of the entire vote for statu
officer, articularly the vote of Sao
Francisco. Thi action mean a bitter
fight in the coming legislature.

formed the, legislature that the new gov

ol the interest on the public debt, due
