Embezzler Brady Caught in
The Absconder on His Way to Port
land in Charge of r
Frank C. Brady, whi left thin city
early In July, 1892. with J15.000, mainly
funds of the Sunnyslde Land and Im
provement company, was arrested yes
terday at Leavenworth, Kan., says yes
terday's Oregonlan. He was apprehend
ed through the Instrumentality of Mr.
Henry W. Minster and Mr. Thomas G.
Conklln, the respective superintendents
of the Portland and Kansas City
branches of the Pinkerton National De
tective Agency.
The story of Brady's criminal career
Is an Interesting one. He came to this
city about six years ago, and took the
position of bookkeeper and confidential
clerk of the Oregonlan. He was a very
competent man, and his diligence and
attention to business soon gained for
him the position of secretary and treas
urer of the Sunnyslde Land and Im
provement company. During his con
nection with this company he embezzled
thousands of dollars, but so cleverly did
he conduct his operations that not a
shadow of suspicion was fastened upon
him until after his departure for un
known pastures.
Brady applied to the management of
the Oregonlan for his usual summer va
cation about July 1, 1892. He represent
ed that he was very much fatigued by
his year's work, and his request was
readily granted. He then took his de
parture for, so he Btated, the mountains
of Idaho. Weeks passed and nothing
was heard of Brady. Then his long ab
sence alarmed the officers of the Sunny
side Land and Improvement company.
They lhvestlgated his accounts and
found that he was a defaulter, and then
determined to cause his apprehension.
On December 30, 1892, Mr. A. II. Brey
man, one of the officials of the com
pany, called on Superintendent Mins
ter, explained the affair to him and re
tained the agency to "work up" the
case. Operatives were Immediately
placed on Brady's trail, but before they
had got fairly started, Mr. H. L. Pit
tock received a letter from his truant
bookkeeper. It was dated July 18, was
apparently written from Liverpool, Eng
land, and the envelope bore the cancel
lation stamp of the postoffice of that
city. Brady stated that he had gone to
England to arrange some money mat
ters with his father, and expected to
be able to sail for the United States In
two days or in six days at the most.
Dr. Bell, of Portland, furnished the
first clue to Brady's whereabouts, hav
ing met the absconder in Montreal, and
the Pinkerton mn continued their ef
forts until Brady was finally located In
Leavenworth, Kan.
Before February 2 the detectives had
positively established the Identity of
Brady, alias Howard, Durham and Mc
Laren. But as a precaution It was de
termined to have some Portlander Iden
tify him. Secretary Clark, of the Sunny
side Land and Improvement company,
jvas sent for, and arrived In Leaven
worth on the 8th of this month and
ecognlzed Brady, and this fettled the
..uestlon of identification. The necessary
requisition papers were then obtained,
ind Brady was placed under arrest yes
terday. Detective Hols.ipple, of the
Portland police force, who went east
with the requisition papers, left Leaven
worth yesterday for this city, with
3rady In custody.

Western Union succeeded In getting the

Although a number of the members of
the subsidy committee worked all day

eloquence of the. committeemen was

But Eight Republicans Vott
for His Confirmation.
The President's Favorite Finds Ablt
Supporters, but aulnsnf
flciency of Votes.
The following dispatch was taken
from yesterday's Oregonlan, The As
torlan having failed to rccetve It Frlda
evening on account of the lnterruptloi.
In telegraphic communication with Port
land: Washington, Feb. 16. The senate ad
Journed a few minutes past V O'clock,
after spending the better part of two
days considering the nomination of W.
H. Peckham, of New York, to be asso
ciate justice of the supreme court. The
vote taken on the motion to confirm tht
nomination resulted 32 for and 4.
against, and accordingly the nomination
was rejected. The proceedings of tlu
executive session, prior, to taking thi
vote, consisted, entirely of specchmjil;
Ing, Vilas, Mitchell of Oregon, Gcorgi
and Gray speaking for confirmation am.
White of California and Hawlcy agulns
It. All addresses, except those of Vllat.
and George-, -were very 'brief and con
sisted mulnly of .explanations of th..
Vote of the speakers. Vilas spoke fo.
two hours, devoting himself to a de
fense of the character of Peckham am.
the president's right to appoint in t.
case like that of a justice of the su
preme court without consulting the sen
ators from whose state the nominee lb
chosen. He read extensively from let
ters concerning Peckham, which huu
been laid before the Judiciary commit
tee, giving extracts from letters of con
demnation as well as praise, and an
alyzed and dissected the letters as ht
progressed. Summing up,' he declareu
the balance of the tesUfiony was fav
orable to Peckham, and showed him to
be a man deserving of the high hoflbf
the president had sought to confer upol
him. Vllaa also made an explanation ot
Peckham's telegram to Judge Caldwell,
concerning the receivership of the At
chison and Topeka, saying his motive
In saying Judge Caldwell's older would
not be obeyed was found In the fact
that the Union Trust company, for
which Peckham vas acting, was of the
opinion that the order would place the
trust company In the light of a pre
ferred creditor, Instead of the bondhold
ers, for whom It acted.
Senator George discussed the consti
tutional points Involved In the case and
declared his belief to bo that Peckham.
was a man entirely fit for the position.
He had given the subject careful con
sideration, and had reached the conclu
sion that Peckham should be confirmed.
White, of California, Bald the selection
of a supreme court Judge was a matter
which greatly Interested the people of
California. There was now pending In
the courts a suit involving the owner
ship of the water front of valuable prop
erty In that state, estimated to be worth
$20,000,000. This suit, he added, would
eventually reach the supreme court, and
be determined by that tribunal. He
had observed some friends of the nom
inee In the present Instance were men
Interested in the result of this and other
suits, and while this might be a mere
coincidence, It. was sufficient to decide
him against the nominee.
Mitchell said he had become con
vinced, from an Investigation of all the
facts, that Peckham was well fitted for
the supreme bench. He called atten
tion to the fact that eminent lawyers of
New York and elsewhere had spoken In
the highest terms of him. A lawyer,
who had personally known all the su
preme Justices for 20 years and had
been acquainted with Peckham during
that time, had assured him the nominee
was entirely capable of filling the office.
The same gentleman was quoted as say
ing he was a great deal llko the late
Justice Miller, firm and Judicial. The
speeches of Gray and Hawley were
brief, but emphaUc, the former for and
the latter ogains the confirmation.
The vote In detail, with pairs and ab

Occasionally there is heard specula
Ion as to what will be the president's
:ourse,. In view of the rejection of his
second nominee for the associate Jus
ticeship. No one, whose opinion Is of
'alue, will venture to surmise or sug--cst
a name. The supreme court Is now
n recess, and will be until March 6, so
hat the necessity for a full bench will
ot be urgent until that time.
New York, Feb. 1G. A reporter called
tonight at the home of Wheeler H.
''eckham and sent up his card. Peck
ham sent back word ho had nothing to
say In regard to the rejection.
William H. Hornblower said: VI am
very sorry, the. senate has refused to
confirm Mr. Peckham's nomination. Of
course, under the circumstances, It is
proper I should say very little on the
subject. I am only sorry Mr. Peckham
was not confirmed. I say this because I
think Mr. Peckham would have been a
good man for the office and would have
filled It with credit and dignity."
Hornblower courteously declined to
express himself any further on the sub
ject. ... J
