the public, was made in a recess of
the criminal trial of six employes of
the American Sugar Refining company.
Messrs. Stlmson and Donnison, special
counsel for the government, then gave
out a statement in part as follows:
"In Juno last an investigation was
begun as to duties paid on sugar
landed on the docks of tho Arbueklo
Bros.' New York refinery. The firm
voluntarily gave us access to its books
and a thorough comparison was made
between the books and tho custom

government's figures they voluntarily
offered to pay this sum into the treas

The statement admits reference to
methods by which tho frauds were ef
fected. 'The matter is now pending before
the grand Jury," is tne only repiy jar.

died at 2:35 o'clock this morning, his
aged and wasted body unable to stand

age of the wound was perfect, as no
torcr was present all day. Tho king
had been able to take nourishment.
The pnblie at large was satisfied that
tbo king would recover, but within the
pavilion where the king lay, anxiety
was felt, chiefly becauso of Leopold's
great age. After a restful day the
patient was able to sleep for a. brief
period cany in too evening nu mo
night passed quietly.
Tho king's coolness and courage In
the heroic struggle won tbo admira
tion of all, for at no time did he seem
to fear the result. Now that ho Is
dead it is considered remarkable he
was able to survive so long by the
force of his mentality.
When Gofllnet emerged from the high
walls of the royal garden, bis pale
face startled tho newspaper correspond

and said solmnly, ''The king is dead."
