Bad Bank Failure. "

Loan and Trust company has just closed

have a balance left.

MAX STEIN'S MURDERESS.
Hov tib Escaped From Ine Matamoras
. Jail. .
Corpus Chhihti, Tex., Feb. 16. Mrs.
McCabe, the murderess of Judge Max
Stein, whose escape from the Iatamoras
jail, and pture at Alice, Tex., has
already been reported, was brought to
this city last . night and" placed in jail.
Owing to her appeal to the American
ladies come months ago, which was
given wide publicity by the newspapers,
it is unnessary to state how and why She
killed Stein. To a correspondent "this
morning phe gave a ifraphie account of
how she escaped from the jail Saturday
nignt, February . 4. lane, had already
lieen tried, but sentence had been with
held for reason unknown to her. She
was not confined on the mine floor with
the other prisoners, but occupied a room
on the second floor, which privilege was
accorded her At an extra cost of If20 per
montn lor tne special - guard tarnished
bv the Mexican government. :. About 1
o clock on the above night she executed
her plans for escape. The guard, think
ing she was asleep, left his station for
Some purpose, when she auicklv with
drew from her trunk a lone rope with
Knots tied in it about twelve inches
apart.. This she tied to the baluster.
The distance- was sixteeu feet to the
ground, but owing to weakness, caused
bv Ion-; confinement, there . was not
enough strength in her arms to support
the-weight of the body, consequently
she fell heavily to the ground, breaking
two bones of1 her right foot, while
another was driven through to the bot
tom ol her toot, tn tins paintul state
the brave woman and - fleeing fugitive
crawled seven blocks to the Ri Grande
river, where a boat lay in waiting. She
was taken to Brownville, opposite Mat-
a mora h, and there kept, until last Hun
day night, when she was put on a fast
horse anil rode to Alice, a distance of 130
miles. She made the distance m three
days and was accompanied by Dr.
Headley. It is feared her foot will have
to be amputated. Mrs. McCabe is 19
years of a.e, of large 8 tat tire and very
graceful, and might be termed pretty.
She has a luxuriant growth of black
hair, four feet in length. Her case will
be argued here on February 24.
AX KASTKRN- MAN'S OPINION. "
Why Work I pon the Portland & Seattle
I. Ine Was Stopped.
There has been a great deal written
and said in explanation of the reasons
the new management of the Union Pa
cific had for suspending work on the
Portland & Seattle line, and why there
has been delay in paying oft laborers
and contractors. An Eastern railroad
man, who is now in the city and who
professes to understand the inside of this
matter, gives the following as ' the true
version of the affair.
The real cause of the stoppage of-work
on the Portland & Seattle branch and in
manv other places on the Pacific system
and the cause of delay in paying laborers
and contractors, was that when Gould
secured control of the Union Pacific, and
Adams and the other Boston men went
out, they took all the money in the Un
ion Pacific treasury to pay call loans, and
t-TOUld found that he bad the road on his
hands with u floating debt of $12,000,000,
and nothing in the treasury. He had to
stop all construction work, all shopwork
the depot works at Omaha and the depot
work here; in fact, all expenditures of
money. There was considerable talk of
the road coins into the hands of a re
ceiver, 'and orders were sent to Omaha to
pay no voucher amounting to $115 or up
wards. This is the real cause of the
stoppage of work and the shortage of
funds, which was made a much more
serious matter than it would .otherwise
have been by the stringency in the money
market which arose about the same time.
The reviewing of the line and all that
sort of thing were merely secondary
matters, and were only made to see if
some less expensive line could, not be
The Advent of the Kansas Statesman In
Kepreeentative-elect Jerry Simpson
of Kansas, while in the hands of King
master Bill- Springer today, created
more of a sensation in the democratic
lobby of the house than a managerie,
Not only did the members flock about
him and gaze upon him, as if he were a
a new kind of an animal, but the people
in the galleries, the pages and. the house
employes looked upon him as the
wonder 'of the present day the man
who was elected to congress because he
did not wear socks. After Springer had
seen to it that every democratic member
was introduced to him, Kelley, of Kan
sas, took him away from the democrats
and introduced him to such repnblicans
as wished to become acquainted with
the eockles8 statesman. The comments
of the press have made Simpson famous,
He looks like a man who would be very
likely to avail himself of any demagogic
argument to secure an election. Before
the next congress is over he will have
sunk into insignihcance, only to De heard
of from time to time as ridiculous.
Will Settle np the Business..

recent appointed receiver of the Spokane
National Bank, has arrived in this city

his duties and settle up the business of

CKCSADS AGAINST GAMBLERS.
A Bill to be Introduced in the Senate.
Skattlk,- Feb. 16. The determination
to check and regulate the gambling evil
in this city is receiving the sanction of
public sentiment, and Corporation Coun
sel Jacobs has drawn up a bill for this
purpose, which will be presented to the
legislature Wednesday. The bill im
poses severe penalties on all cut-throat
games, and legalizes certain forms of
gambling, such as . faro, roulette and
hazard, by requiring a high license of
from $600 to $3000 per game semi-an
nually, in advance.- This, it is believed,
will eradicate the worst features of the
evil, by suppressing gambling in many
of the lowest dives, and will materially
decrease the number of gambling houses,'
while exacting of them some degree of

THE JEWISH PERSECUTION.
An Act Calculated to Excite Indignation
St. Pktebsburo, Feb. 16. The Rabbi
Marcus, a Jewish physician living in
Grodno, has been arres'ted and exiled for
two years for sending to the government
in behalf of the Jewish community a
petition demanding redress for an outrage
committed by a Russian doctor named
Granoloski, who is charged with having
branded the word "thief" in three
languages upon the forehead of a Jewish
boy who was accused of having stolen a
small quantity of fruit. The petition set
forth that the case would excite indigna
tion throughout the civilized world.
Corbett Is Confident.
Chicago, Feb. 16. James Corbett,
the young California pugilist, is very
confident of the outcome ol his battle
with Peter Jackson, which occurs May
21, but is not inclined to be boastful.
He said :
"I consider Jackson one of the best
men who ever donned a glove ; purely
scientific, a tremendous hitter, and a
great general. Of course, if I did not
consider I could defeat him I should not
have signed my name to the articles of
agreement. Reports recently circulated
regarding my health are much exagger
ated. I never felt better in my life than
I do at present. After my engagement
here I shall start west, filling a few dates
which Parson Davies has booked for me.
Stenzell, my backer and manager, will
accompany us across the continent, and
make arrangements for me to commence
training soon after we arrive in San
Francisco, which will be about the let of
March. ' '
