In tho first place he explained that
owing to olectlau campaign It is mora
difficult than In other yriarfl to gu

Mr. Shnitrl read a letter from an
eastern capitalist stating that he would
Jot him have the money or rather
tnndo a pr.vulso to that effect Tim
writor cf Mto letter was known by sev-
oral of tho busljr.oss men present and
thoy agreed that the communication
must be all right.

city line tho best of him am'. lie prae
tlcnlly admittod that hie $6 000 was
fnrfoltod when ho did not como up to
his oontrnct Put. he went on to ox-
plain it was not his fault that ho hau
not dxcouted hi part of the ugroo-

him io get the capital. He suld how

lioved that In the course of a little
