Operator Mlxea a Couple of Telegrams Spoils a Political Deal but Causes a Profitable Stock Charley Fosters Little Gift to Brices Wife and Its Growth Into From Lawyer to Kailway Millionaire COLUMBUS Jan it has been de termined that Calvin S Brice is to go to the United States senate he has become the most talked about man in seven states Countless stories are told of his boyhood his ancestry his war experience his wealth and how he got it and very much indeed of this isi new to the public for until the campaign of 1S83 Mr Brice was not a national character His career has indeed been meteoric Ho shot into fame like a rocket It seems like sterting i fairy story to say that eleven or twelve j years ago this man was a poor and obscure country lawyer thirtythree years old with wo or three children and with his career ail before him Calico dialley Was His Frleml He had a law partner named Irwiu Brico Irwin was the firm and the two ised to sit in their dingy little office in Lima md wonder if the world had anything ill store for them Brice was very restless veii then and used to pace floor with juick and nervous tread He had one warm 3lose friend in those days that was Charley Foster excongressman and now exgovern or The Fosters father and son being a little jerkwater railroad which ran from Sandusky down to Fremont It occurred to Foster that as tho Httle railroad had a good deal of petty liti gation in the way of hog cases etc it would bo well to have a regular attorney for tho road and CaP Briee was appointed at the flattering compensation of 81000 a year That was Attorney Bricos introduction to railroad business The rosters Ilullil a Ruiway A friend cf Mr Brico tells the following entertaining story of how that job led to a fortune A year or so after Cal hail been made attorney ot Fosters railroad ho Fosters concluded that as the road didnt pay they would extend it down through Fostorin their own town to a junction with some trunk line and then try and sell it out They did this but the construction of the road nearly swamped them They built it with bonds and stock secured by their individual credit and by tho time they got to Fostoria the Foster ship was carrying a frightful load Both bonds and stock were listed on tlie New York stock exchange and both were nearly worthless The stock sold as low as S a share Matters ran along a few IBontJis when all at onco things began to boom In northwestern Ohio Struck by an Oil 2oom was discovered tho Hocking Valley coal fields cnmo into proniinencs nev great resources bsgan to reveal themselves and right at the sains tiino railway values all over tho country a sharp rise iu Wall street The Ohio roads were all very strong and Fosters depreciated securities went up with t he rest Tho o wners of tho road made a calculation that if they could unload their huge blocks of stock at they would get out whole The stock bad got up from to Sil and though it seemed like a forlorn hope thejsent Attorney Brice to New York with a truukful ot securities and orders to watch the market aud feed it out whenever the upset figures were reached Brice could tell the Walt street people ali about tho Hocking valley and he was in di mand to tell wuit he knew and this helped the stock which finally got upto10 and with a stii demand Brice then tele graphed Stock is up to S20 but I think going higher Vvbat shall I do i A Political Diia Going Oil Now here is where the fua comes in Just about this tima Charley Foster was setting up a deal in Stark county to knock out the Democrats in that district The only way it could be clone was to fix up a compact be tween the Prohibitionists and the Republic ans and Foster had sent Gen Gibson up to Canton to arrange the details On tho very day that Foster got Brices telegram from New York about the stock he also got ons from Gibson which read Can do nothing without you Better come up a day Fos ter who was then in Columbus went into the Neil house to reply to the dispatches To Brice he wrote Sellem all out quick 05 you can To Gibson he wrote Do noth ing more till I come The Operator Things Now the amiable lady operator at tho Neil is not here now for she afterward got for her those messages mixed Gen Gibson who claims to be the very soul of honor in poli tics was flabbergasted to get message in structing him to sell out anybody or any thing In fact he was so incensed that he would not reply to tho message but started for home muttering that if Charley Foster wanted any dirty work done be could do it himself Brice in New York who got tho message Do nothing more tili I come of course sat down and waited And the Stock Advanced Meantime the Wall street movement in creased in importance and the whole market seemed on the rampage The stock that Brica was watchingand had a trunkful to throw on the market kept up Brice heard no more from Foster and the latter naturally supposed Brice was obeying orders and selling He was doing nothing of ihe kind ho was waiting for Foster to como Matters ran along for a week or ten days and the Foster stocks were quoted at 37 Brice then Think it is time to let go Are yoi coming on To say that Foster was pu2izled and astonished doesnt express it Millions in the 3Iistake followed a telegraphic correspond ence which explained everything and Brice began to unload The deal was so strong though and the boom had been so admirably worked that he sold nearly threefourths the capital stock of the road at from So7 to S45 It was a great piece of financiering Not onlv did the Fosters clear themselves but they netted something like besides And that deal was worked by their yonng If 1000 a year attorney Cal Brice Xothing Mean Abont Foster And what did they do for the young finan cier was asked That is another thing that has never been published but it was very handsome Char ley Foster went and bought in 1 per cent government bonds had them regis I tered in the name of Urs Calvin S Briee j and sent them to that lady with bis Compli ments I guess it was the most princely present ever made to a lady by one not a relatiro But Brice was spoiled than for tha laTr He knetr then he vras cut out for a j bigger sphere than hanging about 3ne day he said to Mra Brice My dear 1500000 the way we have it is about as good as 5 cents Let us sell those bonds and let roe do something with the money Mrs Brice made a tremendous kick Another ILittle Scheme Mr Brico coaxed and teased and finally Sirs Brice went to Charley Foster and begged to know what to do Foster winked to himself and with a grave face told har it was a wifes duty to obey her uusband Besides said Mr Foster there is a little scheme on foot by vrhi ch I think we can all make some money and I dont want Cal to be left out for lack of means You had bat ter let him have the bonds I dont think he will loss them And so ho got thorn and tha whole amount and half sis much rnoro borrowed money went into the Nickel Plate deal and out of that deal Call Brice made clear His associates mada in the aggregate three times as muck Dewenter THE SILCOTT EMBEZZLEMENT l Three Reports us to Shall I5e Done I In tlie Matter Jan In tho ma jority report of the Silcott investigating committee presented to the house yesterday the argument advanced to sustain the posi tion that the ssrgaantatarms is a disburs ing officer is as follows in brief The ques tion is whether according to the rules of plain substantial justice it ought to bo as sumed that when this money was passed to Silcott by tho treasury teller it was received by tha members themselves to that instant tbe United States government owed a certain sum for congressional salaries Did the United States govern ment at that instant and by the act of tho treasury teller in paying and the act of Silcott in receiving the money dis charge tho We bslieve that members of congress did not then and there receive the money clue them The United States government did not then and there discharge its obligation to the delegates and members of tbe Fiftyfirst congress or to one of them If Silcott was the private of the members to draw their salaries lie must be held to have been appointed as tho agent of each individual member Ilolmans Minority Keport Holman in his minority report states that ho is unable to concur in the opinion ex pressed by the majority of tho committee that the sergeantatarms of the house is a disbursing officer of thoUnited States There is no act of congress he avers that declares him to ba a disbursing officer or that places around tbe funds that might come into his hands tho safeguards provided by law to protect public funds in the hands of a disbursing otlicer of tha United States He also argues that the bond the sergcantat arms of tho last liouso expired with that house and that at ths time tho defalcation occurred there was no bonded sergeantat arms Hempbill in his report holds that the mat tor is not ona that can be settled by con gress on account of its complicated stato recommends that it bo referred to tho court of claims for settlement MISSED THEIR Town IXepublican Soloiis Failed to Keep iheir OJieu DES HOIXES la Jan is idead lock
