SEED DISTRIBUTION FRAUD. Secretary Wilson Finds Packages Are Light Weight and Holds up $1S,- 000 of Contractors' Money. Washington, June I>7.—In the Ncl- lis si^ed contract suit before the court i of claims, an afiidavit by Charlos Kingsley. of Falls Church, Va., has been made public, alleging that A. C. Nennis of New York, who had the I contract for furnishing seed ready for' distribution to the' government, two; years ago. directed that no books were j to be kept, and that the packages i should be lightweight. The legal representatives of Ncllis are suing for the payment of $18,000, which Secretary Wilson withheld from the contract for alleged non-performance ofi contract. The full amount of the contract was $108,000. Secretarj- Wilson said last night that the $18,000 was withhold as the result of an inquiry irito the work of the co&tractor at tho time, and that the government is still in possession''of Nellis'ibond for $35,000. Mr. Wilson said that ho had di- rfjcted that the seed contract and it.^ exectition be probed to the bottom, and that the investigation has not implicated anyone in government employ. The distributing machines used by Nellis, he said, failed to do satisfactory work and caused serious delay in the annual seed distribution and a great rush of work subsequently, making it imiMJssiblc for the government inspector to see all that was being dot z. Kingsley was foreman for Nellis, and in his affidavit says that no record books were' kept showing the quality of seed received in bulk; that he had suggested the keeping of such books, but that Nellis said ho did not vrant them kept. Kingsley says that these I books were kept under former seed distributions. He charges that a great jportIon. of the seeds were put no In lightweight packages, that Nellis instructed him to notify the employes engaged in putting up this seed to let the weights run light, and that ho knows that those Instructions were followed. Kinksley'also charges thut Nellla told him that' he did not know how many seeds he had sent out, and that beet seed^ weire put up at the rate or eighty packages to the pound, though the contract called for sixty- four packages to the pound. Only t.he other day President Roosevelt decided to transmit to the Russian governraent the petition of the executive council of the B'Nai B'Rith, a Jewish organization in the United States, protesting against the condi- uoJ persecution of the Jews by the czar's subjects. This action was taken by the president after mature consideration, and with a full understan 1- ing of what the result might be. The president realized perfectly that this ailion on the part of the United States might bo resented by Russia as impertinent, but with,the consideration of Russia's p-ossiblo resentment on the one hand, and humanity on the- other, Che prcoiilcnt decided to' stand for humanity.

New York, June 27.—There is an uo v/ritten law among the idle rich that to take a dare is more disgraceful than mokiag one's self ridiculous. As a result!the giving and taking of dares has become a sort of fad among the young people of the "4G0." Ye ;ter- day they amused themselves by giving and taking all kinds of peculiar dares.

The spectacle of Sir. Lehr crawling about, picking up chatelaines that were thrown to him and returning them to their fair owners in his mouth, is saiJ to have been a most diverting one. Among the better known of his late exploits was his dare to wade through a public fountain in I?altimore. gl^'^a to Miss Lulu Morris, ^ifterwards Mja. Fred Gebhardt, and now Mrs. Henry Clews, jr.
