FACTS COMING IN BOAHD MEMBERS SUSPENDED Chapin and Counties, the Board Members of One of the Country’s Biggest Brokerage Houses, Placed Under Suspension for Sixty and Thirty Days Respectively For Their Connection With the Recent Scandal in the Trading in Rock island Stocks— Sensational End of One of Warmest Contests in Stock Exchange History. New York. Jan. 13,—Bv suspending S. B. Chapin and F. D. Countiss for sixty and thirty days respectively and by authorizing Secretary Ely to prepare and make public a statement summarizing the facts disclosed in the investigation, the governing committee of the stock exchange has disposed of the Rock Island scandal. The suspended members are the board members of S. B. Chapin & Co., one of the largest stock, grain and cotton houses of this city and Chicago. Mr. Chapin, the senior member, is a cousin of J. Ogden Armour. Mr. Countiss, the other member, has charge of the Chicago offices and was once president of the Chicago board of trade. Three years ago the firm took over the offices on the ground floor of the Trinity building vacated by John W. Gates on the dissolution of his "house of twelve partners." The offices are the largest and most expensive in the Wall street district and the office force one of the largest and best organized. The firm has never been known as a speculative house, but has done a straight commission business. Among its customers have been many of the wealthiest men in this city and Chicago. The decision of the governors ends one of the sharpest contests that has ever been waged inside the stock exchange. Upon the report of the special committee censuring the firm for its action in the execution of the Rock Island order, a great many influential members of the exchange and several more influential patrons interested themselves in the endeavor to persuade the governors that any suspension would be an injustice. It was contended on the firm’s behalf that no other fault had been committed than the literal execution of an order given to it by a customer in the regular course of business, and that the firm could be blamed for nothing more than a mistake in execution. The governors also took up the cases of other brokers who handled buying orders in Rock Island on the morning of the scandal. These brokers insisted that they had done nothing more than execute in good faith and according to instructions, orders given to them by a fellow member. There were at least fifteen firms among which the buying orders were divided in lots of 2,000 shares. The floor members of all were examined. It is understood that the cases of only t wo brokers besides those suspended were seriously considered. One of these was the broker who bid 84 for 2,000 shares when the stock sold up to its high point of 81. The other was a broker who belonged to the Raquette club, who was so closely associated with the Rock Island party that he tipped the stock widely in the club and who came down from the club on that Monday morning after Christmas with a number of buying orders which he executed at the high prices. The inference may have been that the close connection of this broker with the Rock Island party implied collusion in the stock operations. Obviously no such collusion was found. RETURNING HOME Philadelphia Detectives Start Back With Heiress and Waiter. Chicago, Jan. 13.- Roberta DeJanon. the $10,0*10,000 heiress, and Frederick Cohen, the hotel waiter with whom she eloped, started back to Philadelphia last evening in charge of two detectives. Miss DeJanon had a stateroom to herself, while the waiter was placed In a berth by the detectives, who declared that they would watch him night and day on the way. Miss DeJanon and Cohen met in the matron’s quarters of the Harrison street police station annex just before their departure, for the first time since they were arrested. Tears coursed down the cheeks of both as they rushed to each other and clasped hands. Then the waiter led the girl aside to hear from her lips a renewal of her promise to assist in his fight to escape prosecution after his return.

Albert F. Potter of Arizona, assistant forester, will be appointed associate forester. Mr. Graves will take up his new duties Feb. I and Mr. Potter will continue in charge meantime. The appointment of Graves came with surprising quickness. Ever since the dismissal of Mr. Pinchot last week, the president and Secretary Wilson have been represented as being deeply concerned over the selection of a suitable man. Captain Seth Bullock, United States marshal for South Dakota, and Mr. Potter were mentioned as prominent candidates, but Mr. Taft was said to be desirous to taking his time in determining his choice. Mr. Graves graduated from Yale in 1892 and was trained in forestry in this country. He was connected with the reconnaissance forest survey of the Black Hills in 1897. lh ma i Board T the elimination of \r}ippcorn PTI relating to ga opted ll im- oats. orb A $i .OOO OGO BLAZE Loss Grand Rapids Suffers Heavy From Spectacular Fire. Grand Rapids, Mich., Jan. 13.—Fire which for a time threatened the whole business section of the city, broke out shortly after 6 o’clock last night and was not brought under control until I o’clock. The loss is estimated at over $1,000,000. The fire started from defective wiring in the stock-rooms of the Young & Chaffee furniture store and practically the entire stock of that company was destroyed. The flames spread rapidly and soon reached huge piles of excelsior. At 10:15 o’clock the fire was at its height, and at 10:30, so fiercely did the flames rage, the roof of the big five- story Manufacturers’ building fell in with a crash, carrying everything before it. The building was but lately remodeled throughout and was worth over $300,000. The Daily News plant was located on the ground floor of this building. Fire Chief Le moi n said at 10:30 the fire was beyond control of the department and help was summoned from the nearby cities. The greater half of the business section was saved with difficulty.

Elwood, Iud., Jan. IS.—Thirty strikers, acting as pickets at the American Sheet and Tin Plate gates, were arrested on charges of loitering. Each gave bond for his appearance before Mayor Brumbaugh in the city court tomorrow. The arrests followed a complaint made by the corporation that its workmen are being intimidated by strike pickets. The strikers set up the plea that they are not loitering, but are doing picket duty for pay. They contend they are receiving strike benefits with the understanding that they must picket the plant, and compel it to close if possible. The city administration Ll backed in its action by the business ’nterests of the city. LOSES POSITION Terre Haute, Ind., Jan. 13.—-Dr. Davis, chemist at Indiana university, reported, to Coroner Leavitt that the stomach of W. IL Neiderhelman, alias William Helman, sent to him for examination. contained 53.1 grains of potassium cyanide, and death must have resulted within ten minutes after he swallowed the drug. This disposes of the murder theory, and absolutely proves that the Terre Haute jeweler committed suicide. The coroner went immediately to the prosecutor and asked that the charge against Miss Effie Salisberrv, aged twenty, and Henry Corcoran of Nashville, her companion, held in New Orleans on suspicion of poisoning Helman, be dismissed. The only theory of the case now tenable is that Helman committed suicide because of jealousy, and possibly on account of business troubles, and with amazing vindictiveness he planned to •throw suspicion of murdering him on the girl whose treatment of him was driving him to his death.

The bill will have a fight in the house, where Senator Lorimer’s friends, who want nothing done until federal aid is secured, are stronger than in the senate. Blunder of Immigration Official Left Family in Sad Plight. Kewanee, 111., Jan. 13.—Mrs. Katherine Janefsky of Germany and her three small children were left penniless on the local depot platform by the railroad company through an error of an immigrant official, who made out their tickets from Hamburg to Kewanee, 111., instead of Kewaunee, Wis., where Mrs. Janefsky’s husband awaited their coming.
