Collapse of Two St. Louik Swin
dlers. Special to Tin: Astoman
St. Louis, July 5. Two shrewd
swindlers giving the names of C. A.
Post and Jos. .Fruiter were arrested
to day for defrauding several hundred
farmers of Illinois, Missouri and Ar
kansas. They did a commission busi
ness on the levee. They had printed
a number of attractive business cir
culars in which it was stated that
their house had been established
since 1SS0. The prospective custom
ers were referred to the Continental
Bank of St Louis, Weise, Neville &
Co., of Sioux city, and Bradstreet's
Mercantile agency and all the express
companies of St Louis, Mo. The
bait was a uniform scale of price
ranging from 10 to 20 per cent higher
than those paid by reputable com
mission houses. Remittances by draft
on the day of arrival of the produce
were assured. A small trial shipment
was first made by the shipper who
would promply receive a draft Thus
deceived he would send in everything
marketable that he could pick up in
his vicinity, this extra price being an
incentive for doing an extra business.
That would be the last he would hear
from his consignment There is a
stock of complaints at police head
quarters, and the pair are believed to
be S50,000 ahead on the scheme.

ings but the women were backed by
the Presbyterian ministers and carried
their point The directors made pub
lic their order to the care takers of
the museum which directs them to
cover the statuary -with clothing. The
entire city is laughing at the directors.

If the most particular person could
have had the day manufactured ex
pressly to order, for the purposes of
celebration, no better weather could
possibly have been provided than that

morning it was fine for marching, and
no one was troubled with the heat.
Every detail was carried out so com
pletely as to make the entire juTair a
perfect success, and the celebration,
like the weather, was without a fault.
The full program having been pub
lished in The Astorian of Friday
morning, it is not necessary to repro
duce it, but simply to say that it was
faithfully carried out. Chief marshal
C. H. Stockton and his efficient aids,
Messrs. Worsley, Trenchard, Surpren
ant and Danielson, filled their posi
tions admirably, and the duties were
performed to the entire satisfaction
The procession was long and impos
ing, presented a tine appearance, and
was witnessed by several thousand
spectators, who lined the sidewalks on
all the principal streets. Fiag3, ban
ners, evergreens, mottoes, shields and
other decorations were almost univer
sally displayed, and on all the streets
traversed by the procession very few
buildings wero seen without something
in the way of decorations for the day "
A detachment of the city police
headed tho procession and kept Jhe
street clear of teams, and tho rest of
