Cincinnati, Nov. 8. An official of
the Big Four railroad stated tonight
that the defalcations for which ex
Treasurer Charles L. Warrinor has
beao arrested would be far in excess of
1100,000. According to bis estimate,
tt will reach nearly 1500,000.
Eighty thousand dollar ia said to

women and a man are mentioned ea the
blackmailers. . Detectives are shadow
ing one of the women, wbo lives in
Cincinnati, bat it m stated that the
railroad company doss not Intend to
have bar arrested, bat will try to get
her as a witness for the state. '
Warrinor, who is charged with ap
propriating $64,500, was released from
custody late today on a bond of 120,
000. During the day Warrinor made a re
markable change of front. 'In the af
ternoon ho gave out a statement admit

age, but declaring there ware others
in it. Later he changed tactics and
declared that be

This later declaration is taken to mean
that bo iotends to force his alleged
