A roan from Weeping Water, who
once aspired to hold a county office, was
in the court room yesterday. Evidently

TRAPPED AT HIS TRICKS.
Sheriff Elkenbary Schemed a Plan
That Worked ori Forger
McCan Like a Charm.
A $600 Forgery.
On March 7, Frank McCan, alias Fred
George, who has been in the employ of
Coon Vallcry, near Eight Mile Grove,
entered the First National bank of this
city and presented a note for $000 for
tale, payable to him, and bearing the
forged signatures of C. It. Vallery and
Joshua Murray. The names were good
for the amount at the bank and the for
gery complete so that Cashier Waugh
purchased the note for $.r60, giving a
draft for $500 and $t0 in cash. McCan
left the city and went to Kansas City.
There he placed the draft in the bank
for collection and it was returned to the
First National here. Mr. Waugh sus
picioued the note, and held the payment
of the draft till Monday, when Mr. Val
lory was in and pronouueed it a forgery,
Mr. Waugh telegraphed to the bank at
Kansas City to watch for the man and
Deputy Sheriff Miller left in persuit of
McCan. He is described as being 5 feet
yr 10 inches high, weight about 100
pounds, Ught coiuplcj.on, blue eyes,
sandy mustache, brown hair, little Laid
in front of head, two false teeth in upper
jaw; wore dude cap, dark sack coat,
brown pants and congress gaj tor shoes;
is a little stoop shoulder with a pacing
When Sheriff Eikenbary learned of
the passing of the forged note at the
bank in this city he bad no idea what had
become of the man, but from his long ex
perienceand observation with such fel
lows he knew how to track him. Going
to Ticket Agent Latham at the depot he
learned that McCan had purchased
ticket to Erie Kansas (a town of about
1.3O0) but the return of the draft from
Kansas City gave a key to McCaa's plans
which the Sheriff figured out like this
McCan purchased a ticket to Erie, Kas.,
lor a blind, intending to go to Kansas
City, Mo., but led the officers, on dis
coverv. to search for hiin at Erie. Not
being smart enough to have the draft
cashed at Kansas City (or not being able
to have himself jdeutitied) he placed it
in a bank for collect'en, iniend;ng to lay
iround and wait for the money to come
Satisfying hitutrjf that this was McCan's
icheme, Sheriff Eikenbary sent Deputy
Miller to Kansas City to "lay for him"
with instructions iogo to the bank, make
iiis business known and wait for his man
After waiting yesterday, Deputy Mil
