Ha Advanced $393,000 to Francis G Grable to Carry on His Big Schemes. Chicago. Feb. a. Th Tribune will print the following account of the. operational of Francis Orable the promoter of gigantic land, mining and Irrigation scheme, and to whom the secret loan of $393,000 by William J. Qulnlan, cashier of the Chemical National bank of New York, caused the Utters ludden resignation yeaterday. Orable and ih financial ecemea are welt known to the people of Nebraska and the Black Kills. The fall of Cannier from hie place In the Chemical National bank, owlna to unauthorized loan of383,00 of the bank's money to Francla Orable. th promoter of western townilte. Irrigation, manufacturing and mining chemearevals Mr. arable's Napoleon! career as a promoter. Daring the last gaged in coating the stocks, bonds and mortgages of his western enterprise upon investors In the east, not lee than $3,000,000 ha been realised. Intimate: amtuciated with Mr. Orablt baa beea W. K. Kurti. formerly 01 Kansas City and Omaha and now ol Naw York. The principle person Interested !n the apecuiHilonr of the two men are located In Philadelphia, New Jersey. Connect leu:, ::..achaseets and Ne Tork, Connecticut furnishing the longest list, although tbe amounts will be smaller than In Philadelphia and New Tork. In that state a large number ol school teacher have Uken a share ot so of atock apiece and a good many preachers have inveeted. 81a or sever man were at work for a rear or aor In disposing of the stock In the mfnlni companies which were formed twt years ago. It had been known for thr last slz months that the finances ol the western concerns In which Orabli and Kurta were Interested were suffer lag from tbe general financial strln !-. IN ON THE OROUND FLOOR. For many yeara Mr. Orable baa been in ctoae relations with the officials ot the Chicago. Burlington t Qulncy railroad and he was let In on the ground floor for townsltes when the company attended Its lint' to the Black Hills. He had bbeon attracted to the possibilities of Improving the country through which the lines had passed by Irrigation, and two Irrigation compan les were organized. Before he hai raised a dollar from the last he wa pushing ahead with characteristic en ergy in booming the second. Edge mont lay around a marshy piece o ground. Thl he had dredged out un til he made a beautiful lake In thi heart of the town. He organised th-Edgeoont grindstone company, wit) a capital of 1250,000, and spent a largi urn in building a plant for ths mak tng of grindstones. He organised balding syndicate, got a large amoun of eastern capital into It and began pu ting up buildings right and left aloni the business etreeta of the plaoe. Mr Orable nest started the construction of a smelter st Edgemont which he believed waa to be thr d'glnnlng of on of the greatest smelling plants In the weat The smelter is not yet completed, but it represent an outlay of at least 1100,000. The townilte and Irrigation schemed vara but the forerunner of Its Unlor Hill mining company, which Mr. Orable brought into existence early ir Ittl Far a unmber of years he had been accumulating mining clalma Ir the Black Hills district When Mr Orabue had some fifty of these claim he thought it time to float o company Accordingly be gave several excursions out to the Black Hills from Chicago and Omaina about two yeara ago. Th prospective mlnee were near the great Homeetake mines, which had turned out millions for the late Senator Hearst and his associates. PATTIBON COMES IN. Thomas Bradley, of Philadelphia, who waa a large stockholder In a stone eompany at Edgemont, waa also a dl rector in a security trust company of Philadelphia, of which Robert E. Pat tlson, the democratic politician and former governor of Pennsylvania, was president Mr. Bradley Induced Oov ernor Paulson to be one of the party ol sla to visit the Black Hills In May U. Oovernor Paulson waa greatly Uktn with the outlook and on the way back he agreed to Uke the presidency of the company which was to be form ed. It is said that tbe Inducements to the governor waa that he was to receive a salary of $15,000 per year, and ft large block of stork. The Chicago convention was near at hand at that time. If the nomination went to the oust Pennsylvania's favorite democratic son might get the prise and it would not look well for a prerldentlal aomlnee to be a p.i-itldent of a mining company. Ilia acceptance of the place was left open until after the conven tion had been held. Boon after a glittering prospectus oi the Union Hill mining company made Its appearance. Tbe eompany bad capital atock of $2,000,000 and ot this Mr. Orable received $1,100,000 In pay-meat tor tbe fifty clatma which he deeded over to the company. The re malfilng 1200,000 worth ot atock was to be sold and the proceed devoted to th opening op ot the mines. Mr. Ora-b! vest efl U n ewe. He sold The "Enthusiast" starts out th an apology for the lack ot musical talent within his soul and yet, all through th piece, betrays a knowledge of music which gives room for doubt as to th amount of reliance we may place upon hla apology. But aside from this, ur from the motives which prompted the article, it seems to me that it was In very bad taste and entirely uncalled for. A number of those criticised in the article, do not sing In public for money or for the purpose of submitting to such criticisms; but to aid in charitable and laudable enterprises which, but for their labors, might fall for lark of funda. Do you think that these young ladlea, lu particular, who have been mentioned In tbe article, will feel so willing to assist In future entertainments, whsn they fear that such 'En-thusiaala" are to comprise their audience? These young ladlea are from our own town are not courting criticism through tbe columns of a newspaper, and have the right to appear before their own townspeople, without danger ot public and annoying criticisms, given, If we may Judge from this specimen, merely to air a supposed crtt leal ability. It has been ssld thst "critics are the chips which fly from the block of genius;" but the block of genlua must have been In bad repair when this flew. Why do you not criticise outside and professional talent a little more and our own people less? 1 have heard all of the people meuttoned In thla article and I love to bear them all especially the young ladlea, and I know that many time they have appeared before the public when they were obliged to mak great sacrifices of time and personal comfort, and yet tbey were always good about It aad willing to make these sacrifice, rather than see some entertain mnt fail for lark of euppo.t. For Instance, this evening. "Mr, Enthusy" will have aa opportunity to hear many ot those whom he haa been so ready to criticise, and t doubt not, they would gladly reserve blm a bos If he would only have th courage to hand In hla nam In time, and expect no boqueta from him Ithor. And If he gore, w trust that It may not be In a spirit of fault-finding, but rathor with a feeling of prlds for our own girls and a feeling of gallantry In hla heart which will cover all defects. There Is a time and place for everything and if "Mr. Bnthusy" desires to Indulge In friendly criticism, as he claim be doee, let htm give It as a friend should, privately, and not through the columns of a great newspaper like the Ploneer-Tlmea which circulates th rough t tho home of thousands of readers at home and abroad, D. HOW IT HAPPENED. A letter from Keystone says: "hr waa a man killed here yesterday at the Terror. Two of the carpenters ware cleaning the chips and trash off the timbers la tho new department of the shaft which haa Juat been fitted up for th new cage. They were below th 400 foot level aad both mea facing toward oppoalt course of th shaft Th man who got killed was doing th ringing; he rang o hoist up aad th engineer waited a Ilttl bit tad be rang again, thea th cag atartad up alow, went about II feet and stopped, the other man looked around aad aaw hla partner down la a banca with hi head aad shoulders undsr a Umber, but when he rang the cage dowa aad got him out hi neck vu broken and chest crushed in.

We do not know bow old be la. and don't care. Ti colonel alwaya has a good atory to tell and Bob Burdett Isn't In It with him getting off good thl. The colonel was down at Dearer a tew days ago attending the big cattle conven tion and "roaat bull" feaat, which he ays waa th greatest thing of the kind be ever aaw. There were several acre of land covered with aide ot beef, buf falo and various other cholc meats and fully 10,000 people devoured the ed blea, hoofs, hides and all. The colonel telle a good one oa him self. He had been playing horse with the stockmen at Denver about a week and hla condition showed a lack of rest and a superabundance of chain lightning. He finally boarded the train to come home. He waa sick. He felt aa though his stomach waa on springs, like a Jack-in-the-box, ready to com up. He held himself together, how ever, aa well aa ho could and kept up appearances. But at Hastlnga, Neb.. wbea tho trala stopped at the depot the colonel had to relieve himself and ruihtng to the platform of th car yel.ed "New York" so they could hear hln to Crete.

But the colonel came oa to Doadwood and 1 enjoying a visit with hi friends, a he alwaya doe. U. 8. COURT OFFICIALS. The first thing that Impresses the average visitor to the United State court room, during progress of a trial, is the business aspect of matters, th appearance of subntantlabllity, ability and sagacity of the officials. He say to hlmse!f, they ar a fin looking body of men and appear to know their bus iness thoroughly. Tbe court room has the appearance of a business Institu tion. Judge Amldoa, of North Dakota who succeeded Judge A. D. Thomas, re- cj-.ly deceased, aad who I presiding over the present term of court by as- slgnmsnt beea uaa of the fact that Judge Carlatd was disqualified, Is a Jur lit of a broad aad sxtsnslvs knowledge of law and court practice.

Meet of his time the last two months haa beeu spent la tbe Oieat Northern hotel and he haa Interested Mayor Carter H. Harrison lb the scheme. Mr. Harrison, according to rvporia from Omaha tonight was to become vie president of the company. Then ea-Vlce President Stevuuscn was to be made president The mayor tonight admitted that he had some money invested In Mr. Ura- ble'a properties. "It is th uiiuiug company," be said, "with which Oovernor Paulson ot Peuusj .vaula la con nected. Mr. Owsiey, my brother-tn-law, went to Dakota about a year ago and looked over the ground and he came to the conclusion that It was a pretty good thing and we took a little flyer. That Is all thers Is to It" lis denied that he was to v vice-president of any of Mr. arable's companies. THE EFFECT. Whll th Immed'ate effect of tbe operations of Mr. arable rill be to stop for a time, sales of Black Hills mines or mining securities In the east It will also be wholesome Inasmuch as It will educate eastern Investors to Investigate before they place their mon ey. One such deal as that c.tuuot hurt thi Black Hills very much for men who have very large amounts to Invest do not buy from stock peddler. A num ber of Oelena men In the city yesterday were Interviewed and are ot the opin ion that the camp will be benefitted. They believe that the stockholders will now suoscrlbe to the bonds, pay off the debts and develop th win a In a business Ilk manner. They have not loet confidence In th vatae of the mtnos. One of tbe best miners of the camp said that If he had the management for days he would find the Cllt Edge ore shoot. Vroman.who has been Grabls'a right hand man for years, was also In tbe city, but was not very communicative. He said he thought that Orable had overreached himself and that all of his creditors closed In on him at th same time. Mr. Orable bad put Into th Union Hilt Co targe amounts of his private funds, bow much ha did not know. Neither could Mr. Vroman tell within $100,000 how much nmney had been ex pended In the purchase of mines at Ga lena and their development he thought the directors would continue developments, but the failure of Orable would result In the loss of all bis Interests and the discharge of the local mannupmont. WILL NOT AFFECT OPERATIONS. Mr. Wru. Archer, the prominent con tractor and builder of New York, who la one of the directors of tho Edgemont snd Union Hill company and also a member of the finance committee has been st Edgemont several days, leaving for the east Thursday evening. Mr. Archer assures us that the a3alr between the Grables and the Chemical National bank will not affect the operation ot the Union Hill company, b;it that development work will be carrlod on continuously and the smelter at Edgemont will be completed aa soon as possible. There haa been a reorgani sation of the company and the Orablca are out of It The stockholders have confidence In the Integrity and Judf- mout of those at the head of affaire, at preaent and believe they hats some val nable properties. The company can command an almost unlimited amount of capital. Tberj la no doubt that the mining property situated at Galena Is valuable, although It la undeveloped. The mine were examined by aevemt of the foremost experts of the country who msde favorable report. The affairs ot the company are now In the hands of men who are capable ot handling them, men of large business capac ity and by careful management the mines will be properly developed and the company be put on Its feet The proposition Is a feasible one, but canaot be made a success excepting '.y an economical management of the company's operations. There are large bodies of merchantable oree which, when opened In large quantities will yield a good profit Th Edgemont smelter Is also a prsctlcal enterprise It Is welt located within easy retch of all kinds of ores and fuel and can be made to pay handsomely. The first boiler for tbe Hercule Min ing company to be delivered at tbe site for the new hoisting plant was haul id over yesterday.

An executive committee of five mem-uera was chosen to look after affaire. W. C. Kurta mas depossd as secretary ind Percy 8. Blckmore, as the repre- tentative of th Philadelphia people. was Insulted In bis place. The hold- are of the company a notes, with a vew of protecting themselves, were .hreatenlng to aave the property, and .his meant of course, a receiver and he wiping out of the interests of the hoeand or sore stockholders. Gov- trnor Pattison and all his associates claim to be aa confident that the prop- jrtlee were what they were represented to be aa they were two yeara ago. They prof eat moat profound confidence In the ultimate suoce&s of the company. But Oovernor knew he could never hope again to be elected to a high office after be had allowed the use of his name as the head of a mining com pany. If through that eompany a large number of people loet their money. Hit associate felt the same way and together they started In to see what could be done. It was determined to float a bond leaue for $500,000 and the proposition waa brought before the an nual meeting of the stockholders In Jersey City on the 12th. There were stormy times at thla meeting when the (act waa placed before tbe stockholders that if they did not put up more money by taking bonds they would lose what they already had In. Bonds to th amount of $83,000 were sub-scrllied for. All through the rest of January the Philadelphia capltallata were worriod greatly. The creditors continued to threaten foreclosure and subscription for the bonds did not grow apace. Up to last Saturday but $160,000 bad been subscribed. It Is said that a targe amount of the subscriptions waa the llrect result of the feeling of moral re sponsibility which the men oa tho board of directors felt for allowing the use fo their names In floating the stock of the company. It waa believed to day that the bond subscription would be successful and the property saved to the stockholders. In which case con siderable money will be expended In furthe rdevelopment work. AFTER 8EARLES. The new people la control of the :ompany will take legal steps to compel Mr. Searlee to build his smelter a- ordlng to his agreement Thus It u nopd In the end there mjy be Mme returns, it Is said that Orabie haa not been able to sell all of the $1,800,000 itock and that a considerable part of It is pledged for loans. Probably of the stock appears la the aseeta of the Chemical National bank of New York. Nothing Is known la the east of the numerous enterprises that Orable haa floated. Hla Interstate Land and Cat tle company haa aa o&ice In Omaha and the eastern stockholders have felt too helpless to start aa Investigation or to assume control, aa they did with the mining company, Th Edgemont Stone company paid a dividend of 4 per cent the first year. Since that time nothing has been paid. Rents Rents from th building syndicate con tlaued to come regularly until about eighteen months ago, thea tey atop pod, too. Not a dividend of any kind has been paid on any of th Orable properties for th last eighteen months. Where all the money has gone which haa come In through the floating of the numer ous schemes la a mystery. A reporter for the Tribune who spent over a week la Philadelphia and New York careful ly Investigating the operation of th pair waa unable to discover where so large an amount of moncjr had gone. Th expense, of taking Inveatora out to th Black Hills would amount to a larga sum, and th personal accounts of th promoters would b exceedingly large. Th rent of th New York office and Ha malntalnanc meant not leaa than $10,000 per year, not counting clerk blre. At the Great Northern ho tel In Chicago, a suit of rooms waa ud and there were halt a dosea at tendanu. all oa a salary. There wer office also la Omaha and for a time la Philadelphia. la many of the New England cltlee expensive office were also maintained during most of th Isst two years. Th outlay la building and Improvement at Edgemont might account for half a million dollars. No eetlmatM wer obtaiaed aa to the total expenditure la th Irrigation scheme, While I1M.00 waa laid oat la th mines. It I still aepald. PATTISON'S FAITH IN ORABLE. Oovernor Pattlsoa and all the other Philadelphia aeep'. aiprtaaod thlr b. Hat la th honesty ot air. Orable and did not ttlak aay of thj fuada had grwrtsat TSur saktfa at trow PINE RIDOE AGENCY. MaJ. W. H. Clapp, United Bute Indian agent, at Pin Ridge arrived la the city on yesterday, coming aa a witness before the United States court The major has recently been promoted, and la now a major la the United 8tates army, la fact as well aa by brsv et and by courtesy. The major Informa us that affairs at tbe agency are running with the ut most smoothness, and that the Issue of annuity gooO wilt begin oa Mon day next; the Indiana are bow gather ing from all parte of the vast reservation. Th column of thla paper recently told how th Whit Clay Creek Indi-lans had burned the new and fine laughter house built la th district by tbe government, In order that they might be aaved the labor of a long trip to th agency corrala. Th Whit Clay Indians are well known to be th rea- egadna and desperadoes of all tbe other resci rations, and desired their beef is sued "on foot" so that they might have the fun of killing it a la buffalo. When they bnrned the slaughter house, the major began Issuing them their beof at the agency sixty miles away. Thi with the advent of bad weather became very tiresome to them, and recently a delegation waited on the major an asked that the alaughter house be re built They were Informed that tbey might hold a council and If they would raise and deposit $900 with him to defray the expense of a new alaughtor house like the old one he would have It rebuilt; the council waa held, and much to the major's aurprtse, a few days later In walked a delegation who aid down before htm 900 good white dollar. The burned building haa been dupli cated, every dollar ot which la paid for out of the Indiana' own money, and the agent has sixty dollars surplus which he will return to them. 'ihls Is a new way of conquering a bad lot of Indiana, and prove that a Arm, Just and dignified course with these people is th best It was a signal triumph of mind over matter. FT. MEAUJ AM lU'ilir.

It I proverbial of newspaper mea that they succeed la nearly every walk of life to which their energies are di rected. Thl fact U well Illustrated by the aucceaa attained by ex-Scribe Laurln, ot the Oil City Derrick, who has for several months past been editing or rather exploiting the new Eldorado mine, near Hill City. At a depth of something like T5 feet Mr. Laurln haa a beautifully defined free gold vein which yields abundant val ues and nearly fills the abaft Th New Eldorado la on of th "grass root" bonanaaa so numerous about Hill City and Xeystone. It haa paid all cost of development and promise soon to become a regular producer.
