Woman a Remarkably Attrac

Washington, September <5. —A sensa
tion has been sprung by anew phase
given the Glascock divorce case, iu
which Senator Stewart, of Nevada, is
named as corespondent. Mrs. Carrie
Brady Glascock, the defendant in the
suit, writes a long card in an afternoon
paper iu which she charges that the
.senator first took advantage of her
YvhW' in a stupor, induced by a drug
administered by him in his office while
site was on one of her visits in reference
to the government position that he had
promised to secure her. He had pre
viously loaned her money, she claims,
and in consequence had a hold upon her
to that extent that upon his protesta
tions of love and devotion, she had per
periui feted the matter to pass without
exposure, and upon her subsequent
visits permitted herself gradually to be
come the willing subject of his every
desire and wish- Friendship ripened
into love and at the time the husband is
alleged to have caught the two in a
compromising position in the senator’s
office, she would have willingly sacri
ficed anything, home .and friends, for
\f ra. Glascock is an extremely hand
some woman. Jler face bears marks of
early culture and refinement, but her

THE HOPES OF THE POPULISTS.
Claimed That Great Results Will Follow
Senator Jones’ Move in the West.
Washington. September o.—Popu
lists here are claiming that great re
sults will follow in the western states
from Senator Jones’ defection from the
republican party. They claim that
Idaho will go for the populists, but
Senator Dubois, who left for the west
last night, denies this, and also asserts
that neither himself nor any other
western senator will follow Mr. Jones'
example. The states which will elect
senators this fall, and which, it is
claimed, will be more or less affected
by the action of Senator Jones, are
Colorado, Montana and Wyoming. It
is within the range of possibilities that
all of the states may have legislatures
controlled by populists, and instead of
sending back republican senators will
elect populists. Colorado has already
been carried by the populists. The
members of the house of representa
tives belong to that party. The popu
lists claim that with the election of
Tillman from South Carolina, and such
accessions to their ranks as seem to
them now absolutely certain, they will
hold the balance of power in the senate
in the future.
TOO CLOSE A RESEMBLANCE.
Arrest of the Company's Officials YVho
Printed the Mississippi Warrants.
Washington, September 0. —Chief
Hazen, of the treasury secret service,
received a telegram yesterday announc
ing the arrest in St. Louis, Mo., yester
day morning of Secretary Smith of the
St. Louis Bank Note Company. This
company, it will be recalled, printed
and engraved the §5 and $2 warrants of
the state of Mississippi, which bore a
similarity of the United States money.
The president of the company will be
arrested when he returns to St. Louis
and agent Holmes of the company, who
is in the charge of the Chicago branch,
will also be looked after. In the mean
time the LJnited'States district attorney
at Jackson, Miss., is preparing a case
against the state officials of Mississippi,
Governor Stone and others, in the same
case. The Mississippi officials refuse
to call in the warrants, but the fact
that they have been declared illegal by
general government has, it is is said,
had the effect of destroying public con
fidence in them as money and the banks
refuse longer to take them.

COLOSSAL IN RICHES
The Rothchilds and Vanderbilts
Behind the Great Southern.
EXTENSION OF VANDERBILT’S SYSTEM
The Capital Behind the Reorganization
Aggregates the Largest Amount of
Money Ever Enlisted In an
Richmond, Va., Septemper 6. —It is
now positively asserted that the mone
tary' influence behind the re-organiza
tion of the great Southern railway,
forms an aggregation of the largest
amount of capital ever enlisted in one
enterprise in the United States. The
backing is given by the Rothchilds, of
London and Paris, and the Vanderbilts
of New York —Cornelius and William
K. The re-organization was under
taken and successfully consummated
by Drexel-Morgan & Cos., of New York,
and J. S. Morgan & Cos., of London.
These two great banking houses inter
ested their richest clients —the Roths
childs and Vanderbilts. The syndicate
really is very small in numbers, for it
is divided into four portions, but colos
sal in wealth.
The Rothschilds have one quarter,
the Vanderbilts one quarter, Drexel-
Morgan & Cos. one quarter, and J. S.
Morgan *fc Cos. one quarter. The re
organization plan provided for thirty
millions of new capital, and it is this
sum that' the quartette has agreed to
supply and more if necessary. The
money to be used in heavier rails, new
bridges, new equipment, terminals, ex
The Southern railway has now ac
quired a complete ownership of four
thousand five hundred miles of road,
and by the re-organization has reduced
the bonded indebtedness from $135,000.-
000 to $00,000.000 —just one-third and
the fixed charges from $7,500,000 per
annum to $4,000,000 —ft saving of $5,000,-
000 per annum. The bonded indebted
ness of the road is now less than $20,-
000 per mile. The first annual meeting
of stockholders is to be held at Rich
mond, Va., Tuesday, October 2d, and
bonds to the amount of $120,000,000 on
the entire property will be author
ized. Thirty millions of bonds to
be used in improvements. The ex
penditure of this large sum of money
in the south along the line of the
Southern railway will be far reaching
in its effect.
There is now very little doubt that
the Southern railway project is simply
an extension of the Vanderbilt system
into and throughout the south.

The Game Little American Leads the Fight
in a Twenty Hound Draw.
New Orleans, September G. —Jack
Dempsey and Billy McCarthy, of Aus
tralia, fought last night in the arena of
the Auditorium Athletic club before a
very large audience. Both men were
carefully trained. Both men entered
the ring followed by their seconds,
each receiving a good share of applause,
but the greeting given Dempsey clear
ly showed' that "big friends were in the
majority. The contest was confined to
twenty rounds. Interested spectators
were Bob and Stanton
Abbott. McCarthy with his seconds
entered the ring at 9 o’clock and was
soon followed by Dempsey and his aids.
John Duffy entered the ring a moment
later to take the position of referee,
Dempsey was the first to weigh, fixing
the scales himself. He weighed 140
pounds, McCarthy tested the scales,
weighing 154 pounds, the exact limit.
Time was called at 9:15; the men ad
vanced to the center of the ring and
the fight was on. Both men fought
hard and scientifially. Dempsey had
the best of it from the start hut could
not knock the heavy Australian out.
Both men were game. Dempsey landed
heavy. On the twentieth the fight was
