An "Investment Company Which Yield) No All Employe. B quired to Make a Deposit, Which M Gobbled Names of Promlnen Men Used to Fleece the Unwary. NEW YORK, March Bartlott Cook who styled himself president of the American Development company, and occupied eipel slve offices at 45 Broadway, has dieappeare< and it is alleged that confided to hi by his employes and others went with hir Mr. J. B. Tyler, who entered the "Devehv ment company's" employ as chief clerk, sa; Mr. Cooke has belonging to him, fo which Mr. Tyler has only worthless stock the concern to show. Mr. Tyler and othe were induced to put money into the concei by the fact that the names of several repu table business men appeared in the list o directors. It now transpires that these gen tlemeu withdrew from the directory or so! their stock almost at the start, and the use of their names was not warranted. The company at fli-st advertised the Britis commercial corporation of 31 Lombar street, London, as its London corrosponden but that corporation threatened 1-jgal pro ceedings and the advertisement was witl drawn. The development company waa or ganized for the ostensible purpose of acquii ing western lands, ranches, mines, etc., an negotiating their sale to American and Euro pean investors. Cook demanded a rleposi from every clerk he hired, and wheneve possible induced them to invest in the com pany's stock, SULLIVAN AND JACKSON. John L Ssjt Their Fight Must be Wlthl Legal Restrictions.

Sullivan says that if the California Athletic club o uiy other club will put up a purse of for a fight between Jackson and himself he will meet him in a battle for tho champion ship. He don't care what the gloves are sc ong as they come within the restriction o he law. "I will not fight a ring battle con tinned Sullivan. "Hereafter all matches mist conform to the law. I've had enough of this illegal business. I've spent nearly nl I won In the Mississippi fight trying to gef ilear of the law." Sullivan is in a fairly good condition now and three months or so would be amplo timi for him to train in, In conclusion he said; "If the match is ar ranged I shall train as never before, for I am satisfied that Jackson will be no mean oppon ait and I must be in shape to win am now willing to negotiate with the Cali brnia Athletic club. Now that the sentence s I think that if the club oBlcei s wan ne to fight Jackson in their rooms I wil hortly hear from them." A Service Pension. WASHINGTON, March house com- mittee on invalid pensions has authorized a avertible report on the bill providing for a lervice pension for soldiers of the rebellion and their widows. The bill authorizes the secretary of the interior to place on the pen- sion roll the name of any officer or enlisted mun over 03 years of age, or who shall here- fter reach that age, who has served ninety lays or more in the army, navy or marine eorps of the United States during the war oi he rebellion, and has received an honorable ischarge. The bill also provides for the myment of this pension to the widow of any officer or soldier who has died or who may hereafter die during her widowhood, and in case of the death of the widow, leaving a child under the age of 16 years, the pension is to be paid to such child or children. Flack Will Resign. NSW YORK, March Mail and Ex press says: From an official source it was learned that Sheriff Flack is fast breaking down, mentally as well as physically. From the same source it was learned definitely that the sheriff will positively resign his official position despite the reports to the contrary. He may reserve his decision on this point until Friday next, when the motion to set aside the verdict rendered on Sunday morn- ing will be made. But he has made up his mind to tender his resignation, and it will be made public as soon as circumstances permit Shot to Death by a Mob. NEW ORLEANS, March Times- Democrat's Pensacola special says: This (Tuesday) morning, at an early hour, Simcoe Simpson (colored) was taken from the Jack- son county jail at Mariana by a mob of masked men and shot to death.

The mob was com- posed of both whites and blacks.

WASHI.MJ-IIIX, March the houi yesterday, ai ter tbe approval of the journal Mr. CundlBi- of Massachusetts called up the world's (mr bill. The bill was read, aud Mr Oamller iu behalf of the committee, offerei an amendment, providing that the commis- sion shall apiwmt a board of lady managers such number and to perform such duties ius may be prescribed by the commission, ant] the boiird may appoint one or more men. liersMitali c'ommitlees authorised to award fur exhibits which may be produced it whole or m part by female labor. Adopted. Also un amendment providing that one ol Ihe nifinbers of tho board created to be with the' selection of the govern- ment I'tluhit, shall be chosen by the ilshcom- imss.mt. Adopted. Air Cnnillor expressed the satisfaction which he Mt in being able to state that Chi- cago, which hud been selected by tho house us a site, hnd proved itbelf before tbe com- mittee equal to all that hod been expected of it. The committee hud found that Chicago not only comprehended the importance anc magnitude of thu enterprise, but had entered into it with a determined spirit which had impressed upon tho committee the conviction that it would be successful in its undertak- ing. The committee was satisfied that Chi- ha.l raided a bona iide subscription of and was also satisfied that Chicago had done more than had been expected from any competing city m agreeing that the sub- scription should be raised to In Order to meet the conservative element which did nut ffivor the holding of a fair the bill provided that the president should not issue his proclamation inviting foreign nations until he was satisfied that the contribution uas a bona fide fine Mr. Candlerthtm offered an amendment on his individual motion to be considered as pending, pi oviding for the dedication of the buildings of the world's fair with appro- priate ceremonies Oct. la, 1892; and further providing thiit the exposition shall be open to visitors, not later than May 1, 1803, and shall clr.se not later than Oct 80, 18SW. He said that this was nut asked by Chicago, but hu thought it would insure to the benefit of the exhibitors who wern to take part in tho exposition. In conclusion hi said that he believed that the fair would be a grand advantage and benefit to every sec- tion of the country. Mr. Belden of New York said that New York hul fu-cepted the decision of the house 'n to the locution of the world's fair grciit good faith. But that did not pro- -cut her icprcac-ntatives insisting that there would be incoi pnratod in this bill safeguards tnat would swure that success in Chicago which NewYoik bad expected to sohievo. After the site had been selected, the Illinois members uf special committee w ere asked by the members from New York for the guarantee they had promised, and lo and behold th'-y produced a paper marked exhibit A. The first name on it was that of E. St. John, ami the amount mentioned was Mr Springer had told him that that amount had been promised at a meeting of railroad men. They bad not yet sub- scribed.

[Laughter.] Mr, Belden proceeded to argue that before the bill pnssed, Chicago biiould be compelled to show some guarantee that the subscrip- tions could be raised. He claimed that he was a better friend to a successful fair, by insisting on provisions to secure it, than the men who stood in the hpuse and said: "We (elertion of a site respectively tavoreU Wash- ington and St. Louis, expressed hope for a successful fair in Chicago. Mr. Belden offered bis motion to recom- mit, but it was defeated without a division. Tbe bill was then 303; nays, 49. The house then, after an unsuccessful effort to go into committee of the whole on the Wyoming admission bill, at p. m. adjourned. IN THR 8BNATE. WASHINGTON, March senate yes- terday further debated the Sherman anti- trust bill and panned the bill providing for a special investigation of the sealing Industry of Alaska. The bill authorizing the investigation of the condition of the seal industry was de- bated at some length before It waa agreed to, several senators holding that in the Interest of economy it should not be passed. Resolutions were paused calling on the president for correspondence iu regard to the La Abra award, and on the secretary of the interior for information as to land patents issued to Indians under the severally laws. Mr. Ingalls' amendment aiming at dealings in futures and options was agreed to. Mr. Coke then offered bis amendment con- bating of eight new sections to the bill, and made a speech In support of it. He argued that the bills of Mr. Sherman and Mr. Reagan were unconstitutional and vague without n sting." Mr Reagan's amendment makes it unlaw- !ul to create or carry out any restrictions In :rade; to limit production or to increase or reduce the price of merchandise or commodi- ties; to prevent competition in merchandise, iroduce or commodities; to fix a standard or Igure whereby the price of any article or merchandise or produce intend- POPE AND CARDINAL THE PONTKF'S LETTER TO THE KAISER ANXIOUSLY AWAITED. to Take of V.r, will fix it up by and and he gave notice that at the proper time he would move to re- commit the bill with instructions to report it back when a guarantee of shall be secured by the of Chicago, Mr. CandlerV amendment postponing tbe time for boMii.g tbe fair uiitiH883 was adopt- ed division. 31 r.

Mr. Cummings of New York said some months ngo he appealed in the house for fair play towards New York, and now he ap- iwaled to the house for fair play toward Chi- cago. New York had fair play in the bouse, Lut li st the fair through treachery in her own tanks. There was a Benedict Arnold in New York. More than that, there was no jockey of Norfolk to receive a warning be- fore her natural geographical allies of New England RIM! Pennsylvania wore, led into the ranks of the enemy. For himself, he would stand by the committee, because he believed it manly to do ho, and because he believed it his duty as a member of congress from New York city to do so. It had been a fair fljUt for trie fa.it in the house. The New Yorkers met the enemy, said Mr. Cummings, "we were theirs." He closed by saying that he believed be would honor himself, his city, his state and his country by standir.g by Chicago and doing all he could to make the fair a success. Mr. Frank of Missouri said nothing should be done to retard the progress or imperil the success of the commemoration of the great historical event in Chicago. The honor of e entire country was involved in the suc- th cess of the exposition. Mr. Flower of New STork favored recom- mitting the bill and making Chicago show her subscription list. Mr. MriHon of Illinois thought New York did not want to make the fair a success. Tbs way to help Chicago was not to throw dis- credit upon her business men, and treat them as if they were tramps and Representatives McAdoo of New Jersey ed for sale, use or consumption shall be in any way controlled; to create i monopoly in the manufacture, sale or ransnortatlon of any such article; or to into any obligation by which they shall bind others or themselves not tomanu- "acture, sell or transport any such article below a common standard figure; or by vhich they shall agree to keep such article or transportation at a fixed or graduated Igure; or by which (toy shall settle tbe trice of such article so as to preclude an un- restricted production, Mr. Coke moved to trike out all of the bill except the amend- lent of -Mr. Ingalls or his own. reas, 'M; nays, 10. Mr. Stewart proposed an amendment, but rending action on it the senate adjourned. SECRETARY PROCTOR'S VIEWS. He Thinks the Pension llurean Should Bo In the War Department. WASHINGTON, March speaker laid wfore the house a letter from tbe secretary f war replying to a resolution of the house equesting the secretaries of war and Ulterior o inform that body what saving of public xpenditure, if any, could bo made by trans- erring tho bureau of poiwioiiB to the war epartment. In reply the secretary says that nder the present system the claims of sol- iei-s: for pensions arc not in the opartmeiit under which they served or were isabled, and where the records of their ervices and disabilities are held. 'Hie mili- xry and medical histories which constitute he most important part of the evidence In a ension claim are m the war department. 'hey are. an inseparable part ot its records nd should not be transferred elsewhere, and racticnlly could not be, as they are In con- taut need in the settlement of other than Tension claims in the war department and or furnishing information to other execu- 've departments in claims for pay, bounty, tc. A call, he says, has to be made In every ase of this kind upon the war department or this record and its decision or opinion la required In a large number of cases involving the interpretation of military customs and usages The making and the answering of these calls requires two distinct classes of clerks, necessarily making more or less duplication of work and consequent ex- jtenditure. The proposed transfer, he says, might not remove the necessity for substantially tbe present organization, but it would bring to- gether as closely as possible tbe who decide upon the claim and the records upon which principally it is sustained or rejected. The saving of public expenditure, he says, would consist, flrst in the saving of such work as by the present system Is necessarily duplicated, and secondly, such saving as may come from improved organization made pos- sible by I he entire work being put under one control and permitting thereby the most direct method of dealing with public busi- ness. The extent of such saving, he says, he cannot estimate. With respect to the flrst he says it could be approximately determined upon investigation, but with respect to the latter, nlthongh its possibilities are plain, the actual results would depend upon the wisdom with which, under a consolidation, the work was organized and the vigor with which It was pushed. Tried to Escape from a Convent. WESTCHERTER, Pa., March young woman made a desperate attempt to escape from the Villa Maria convent at this place yesterday, but failed. About 6 o'clock in mm uing she leaped from one of the in the large convent building to the ground. fifteen feet below, and ran down the board walk leading to the town, clad only In bar night clothes and with nothing but stocking! on her feet. After her in hot pursuit ran five of the nuns, and when she had got 100 yards from the convent they caught her and dragged her, struggling and crying bitterly, back to the convent.
