Alexander R. Rucker died in Elberton
Friday, aged about 70 years. Mr. Ruck

and he secured a thorough classical edu

Mis* Calhoun of the celebrated South
Carolina family, but owing to some un
congenialitv, he end his wife had lived
separated for many years. He was a
brave Confederate soldier, was an offi

other gallant cavalry leaders through all
the campaigns of the army of Northern
Virginia in the war between the states.

manufacturing in a workshop he has fit

Tampa Morning Tribune: There will
probably be, in the course of a few days,
some interesting developments in connec
tion with the suicide of Bias Trujillo, the
prominent cigar manufacturer, which oc
curred last Saturday afternoon, in his
private oflic-e. in the factory building.
Since the sudden termination of the cigar
manufacturer's career, public gossip has
been rife with various rumors of alleged
motives for the act of seif-slaughter. Lit
tle by little the facts are coming out. and
the whole story will doubtless be known
by the end of the week. For as much as
two months before ihe suicide, adverse
late seemed to be making special sport
with the fortunes of the firm of which the
dead manufacturer was the head. Within
a week of each other, the leading con
,, rns Which were handling his cigars went
into practical bankruptcy, and ihe loss of
Bias Trujillo & Cos., in bad accounts, are
estimate to have totaled, in two weeks,
the sum of $73,000.

Another of those strange remances of
a melodramatic character in which a bo
gus burial plays a role is about to be dis
closed in the English law courts. Last
year one of the oldest, best-known, and
most highly respected firms of family law
yers, Lake by name, failed, involving in
ruin many titled families, which had for
generations intrusted the management of
their estates to the Lakes. One of those
most hard hit by the collapse of the firm
was the present Duke, of Montrose, who
lost in the neighborhood of $1,000,000. Mr.
Benjamin Lake, one of the two members
of the firm, who alone remained in London
to face the music, when he appeared in
(he Court of Bankruptcy, explained to
the presiding judge that the insolvency of
his firm was no fault of his own. but en
tirely due to the dishonesty and defalca
tion of his partner, Mr, George Edward
Lake, who he swore had fled the coun
: try. and had died in Germany in Novem-
I her last. He likewise produced ccrtifi
| calcs to show that -Mr. George Edward
I Like had been duly buried, at Bushey, in
England, on Dec. 5.
It has just been discovered, however,
that Mr. George Edward Lake is alive and
ivell. living in Italy, in the utmost lux
ury on the proceeds of his thefts. Testi
mony to this effect has been placed in
the hands of the police, and steps have
been taken to obtain his extradition. Mr.

pending an inquiry into the question as to
whether he was a voluntary or an invol

the ends of justice.
This is bv no means the first instance
of bogus burial having been resorted *o
for the purpose of saving influential per
sons from the consequences of their crime.
The fact has repeatedly been printed in
able authority, that Count Guido Lynar,
a member of the princely house of that
name, is living in Italy without the slight
est attempt to conceal his identity. The
count, a major of the crack regiment of
the Garde du Corps, decorated with al
most every order of Europe, possessed
of an independent fortune of SBO,OOO a
year, was arrested by the English police
in London on a particularly revolting
charge while occupying the post of flrst
secretary of the German embassy. Had
he given his name and quality to the po
lice when arrested, he would have at
once been set at liberty, and steps taken
to hutsh the matter up. But he lost his
head, anti refrained from disclosing his
identity until he hod undergone the pub
lic* ignominy of being placed in the pris
oners’ dock. On the assurance given
by the German government that Lynar
should be severely punished, he was
turned over *o the embassy and by the
latter to three officials of the Berlin po
lice. who took h : m back with them to
Germany. On arriving there he was nt
once placed in an insane asylum, on the
plea that he was demented. and his
name was removed from the roster of 4he
diplomatic service, ns well as from th.3t
of the army. Three months later It was
announced in all the papers that he
had died while under restraint, and his
name, after being cited in the necrological
appendix of the Almanach de Go*ha. dis
appeared from that golden book of the
European nobility. A coffin purporting
to contain his remains was placed in the
family vault, and his widowed mother,
after mourning for her son, died about
six months later, it was said, of a broken
A similar story Is re'ated of an uncle of
Lori end laly Hone ( he lat’er May
Yohe), who sailed from New' York f r
England the other day. The uncle in
question was Lord Arthur Pelham Clin
ton, member of Parliament and a com
mander of the royal navy. He. too got
mixed up in a scrape of the same kind
as Cos nt Lynar ard was a 1 out to b<> con
victed. when the announcement of his
d:ath was made, and he was interred wi h
much pomp ard ceremony in the vaults
of the dural house of Newcastle. Yet a
few months laier he was recognize 1 in
Nfw r York, whore he r • n* the r ma'nd r

and saloons around Union and Madison

way out to this country.
The oMebratfd Druce claim to the duke
dom of Por land re?ts altogether on the
cent*n'lon that the late Duke of Port
land survived his alleged deith for a
number cf years under name of Druce;
that he* married and bad children under
the name of Druce, a<’d that the* object
of his bogus funeral as Duke of Port
land was his fir a l of being ea led to ac
count for the mysterious death of his
celebrated brother. Lord George Caven
dish B< ntinck. of racing fame. The en
tire root rove.-sy about the matter, which
gave no little annoyance and expense to
ihe prerent duke, a dis ant cousin of his
predecessor, con and have he n settled at
once had the coffins containing the re
mains of the late Duke of Portland and
likewise of the late Dr. Bruce been open
el and examined, hut the present Duke
davetei all his influ no. l and great sums
of mon y to prevent this being done, and
consequ-nily the doubt as 1o whether he
or the son of the widowed Mis. Druce is
the lawful hrir of the late Duke of Port
land remains in abeyance and unsettled.
Some time ago there likewise appeared
a claimant to the dukedom of Hamilton
in the person of a man w’ho insisted that
he was ihe only bro-lher, Charles, by
name, of the late Duke, and that he had
been obliged to vanish from i he scene
owing to his having killed in a duel the
Russian Count Pasdiewitch, with whose
wife he had eloped. He declared that
proof of the truth of his statements could
be found if the coffin alleged to contain
the remains of the late Lord Charles
Hamilton, which is entombed In the
family mausoleum at Hamilton Palace,
In Scotland, were examined, and added
that It would be found to contain nothing
but sand and fagots. Here ag;iin the pres
ent Duke, who is a remote cousin of his
predecessor, declined to consent to the
examination of the remains of Lord
Charles, nnd the issue remains, therefore,
1 could cite many other Instances of
the same kind in England and on the
continent, among them that of tho late
King of Saxony, who is generally believed
in Germany to have survived his alleged
demise and grand obsequlsies for a num
ber of years, under strict restraint in a
remote mountain monastery, afflicted wilh
a most appalling form of homicidal ma
nia, which had led him to the perpetra
tion of more than one insane murder.
Nor should I omit the rase of the late
Earl of Ayleaford, the too gtnltl "Joey,"
who, having be/ n # forced to expatriate
himself from England, ruined beyond
hope, socially as well as financially, was
reported to have died In Texas. A coffin
with n body therein represented to bo
that of the Earl was brought to England
and Interred with much ceremony. But
doubts were entertained n/t the time, and
still exist, as to whether he was really
dead, n curious feature in connection with
the affair being that ihe insurance on
his lib* was never collected.
After all. this is as it should be. When
a man misbehaves himself to such an
extent as to bring himself within the
grasp of criminal law, he should be re
garded. ipso facto, as dead, if not in a
mateiial sense, at any r ite In a civic one.

Morning News Office, Aug. 20.
The only change of consequence in the
local markets to-day was the drop of %a
In the price of spirits turpentine, which
opened quiet at 38V4C and closed firm at
the decline. The demand at Ihe decline
was none too strong to suit the trade.
The receipts have been watched closely
for some time past, because of the effect
they were having on the market. The
general belief prevails that there is not
to be any immediate let-up in the re
ceipts, so that the market will likely be.
without support in this respect for a
while. The rosin market closed firm and
unchanged, with a fair demand reported.
The cotton market closed easy and un
changed. The wholesale markets l were
steady. The following resume of the dif
ferent markets will show the tone and
quotations at the close to-day:
The cotton market closed easy and un

coming to market just now. and It is ex
pected the movement in a short time will
begin to assume proportions for
this time of year. Reports have been re
ceived hy many factors during the past
few days of damage to the crop from dry
weather. General rains are apparently

New Y'ork, Aug. 20.—The market for
cotton futures showed considerable fluct

declined 11 points, while the rest of the
list was 6 points lower to 2 points higher.'
For a time a pretty weak feeling pre
vailed. This was due to unsatisfactory
cables and almost entire absence of pub
lic speculative interest. Crop news,
while conflicting, had a pretty bad aver
age later In the session. A demand from
Ihe shorts, on this account, and following

New York. Aug. 20.—Murphy & Cos. say:
Cotton in Liverpool closed only a shade
higher than Saturday, but this market
held steady at an advance of about 9
joints, owing to covering of bear sales
and new' buying, stimulated by unfavor
able accounts and buying for New Or
leans account. Rain reported in fome sec
tions of the Cnroiinas, but general rains
are needed, except in Texas. It is a
weather market, and to-morrow’s weekly
bureau report is likely to be poor, as pri
vate advices predict poor prospects, and
even the bears admit the crop has been
deteriorated in the past week.
New York, Aug. 20.—Hubbard Bros. &
Cos. say: Liverpool was disappointing
this morning, as an advance of 2 fo 3
points was expected in response to an im
provement of Saturday. Our market, how
ever, had expected ihe government pre
diciion of Saturday would bring good rains
over the and Georgia. Only
light local showers have fallen, however,
and the crop is believed, to be suffering
from the hot dry weather of the past
three weeks. Opening steady nt Satur
day’s prices the market remained dull for j
the first half hour to jump quickly. The
expected rains did not materialize. The
temper of the trade is distinctly bullish
on the expectations of a roar weekly
report to-morrow, and the light movement
outside buying has not appeared either
from speculators or spinners, but the local j
trade expect they will come in during rfiho
New York, Aug. 20.—Dry goods market
quiet at first hand in all directions. Some
inquiry for fair-sized lots of coarse brown
and colored cottons, but at lower prices
than sellers will accept, although marker
continues irregular. Bleached cottons are
quiet but prices steady. No feature in
wide sheetings or cotton flannels nnd
blankets. Print cloths dull but steady,
prints quiet; ginghams steady. India

Monday, Aug. 20.
Spirits Turpentine—The turpentine mar
ket opened quiet to-day at with
reported sales of 58 casks at this price.
The close was firm at 38c, with* further j
sales of 410 casks. While there was a j
scattered demand, it was not regarded as
a strong one by the trade. As is usual
with them in the face of a doubtful mar
ket. buyers are timid about entering at
the market price. While the official mar
ket was firm, there seemed to be a quiet
undertone. The day’s receipts were 1,819
and the exports 9.473.
Rosins—The rosin market opened firm
and unchanged nnd closed unchanged.
There were reported sales at the closing
call of 699 barrels. The receipts were
3,712 barrels and the exports 12.690. The
Belgian steamship Clematis cleared with
8,509 casks of spirits and 7.600 barrels of
rosin. The demand for rosins was re
ported to be fair, though there was not
a rushing business on during the day.

\o Change In Character of the Mark
et During the Day.
New York, Aug. 20.—There was no rad
ical change to-day in the character of
recent stock market operations. General
news bearing on the situation was scant,
but what there was, w'as further ammu
nition for the bears. London, which has
latterly been a buyer, turned seller for
a small amount, and Western offerings
were effective in special stocks.
General weakness occurred In stocks
with which the firm of Flower & Cos. is
identified, following the announcement of
the death of n member of the firm. These
include a half-dozen of the most active
issues and losses ranged I@2 points, with
Brooklyn Transit and People’s Gas lead
ing. Elsewhere selling was in moderate
volume, but some rather pronounced de
clines occurred in Sugar. Tobacco, Con
solidated Gas and Metropolitan Street
Railroad stocks were much better sus
tained than the specialties, declines ex
tending to a point only in St. Paul and
Rock Island. While the general tone
throughout the greater part of the day
was reactionary, there were periods of
ihe steadines.s when the shorts reduced
their lines. Some comment was aroused
by the sudden marking up of General
Electric to 110%. Its closing price on
Saturday was 136. Reports of a combi
nation with a rival concern and excellent
earnings were circulated, of which there
was no confirmation. Fluctuations in the
Steel group were comparatively narrow*,
but early losses were generally recov
ered in the late afternoon on reports of
imported trade conditions.
A matter of interest in connection with
the international monetary situation wrus
the decline in call money in London to 2%
per cent. This circumstance whs at
tributed 10 imports of gold by the Bank
of England, amounting to $4,670,000. This
amount included the $3,250,000 gold export
ed from here on Saturday week. The
sub-treasury statem/nt for to-day showed
that it was a debtor at the clearing
house <0 the unusual amount of $3,162,900.
Payments by the government on account
of the redemption of the old 2 per cent,
bonds for Saturday and to-day amount
to $3,732,019. At this rate of replenish
ment the banks will speedily recover the
decrease in surplus reserves effected by
last week’s gold shipment. In the last
half hour of trailing People’s Gas and
Brooklyn Rapid Transit were bid up over
a point from the lowest, w r hieh exerted
a stimulating effect on the entire list.
The closing was steady, with a rally In
Bonds showed irregularity, but changes
were very small. Total sales, par value,
