Big Peach Crop.

ANOTHER FORGER GETS Mri
W. H. McDaniel, a Murray Merchant,
' Cashes Check on First National
Bank for Fifteen Dollars.'
PAYABLE TO M. J. COYNE, BY G. E. PERRY
Fraud Discovered Within an Hour After
the Smooth Artist Had De
Parted From the Store.
One of Murray's prominent mer
chants, W. II. McDaniel, was In the
county scat Wednesday searching for
a smooth check artist, who passed a
worthless piece of paper on him, and
thus got away with fifteen dollars.
The particulars we obtained from the
victim of the swindle.
Tuesday evening atcut N o'clock a
stranger entered the establishment of
Mr. McDaniel In Murray, and after
purchasing a bill of dry goods amount
ing In all to about 81.30, drew forth a
check from his pocket and tossed it
upon the counter in a manner that
averted suspicion. After noting that
the check was drawn on the First Na
tional taul: of this city for fifteen
dollars, payable to one M.J. Coyne, by
G. E. Perry, a prominent farmer, re
siding several miles west of this city,
he asked the stranger, Coyne, to have
someone Identify him. Coyne replied
that he was working at Mr. Terry's,
building a buggy shed; that he was
not acquainted in Murray, but that
he came from South Omaha and was
a carpenter by trade. When asked
for some other meansof Identification,
he produced a letter from South
Omaha, and this, together with the
smooth manner which he presented
during the conversation, partially con
vinced Mr. McDaniel that the check
was all right. Mr. McDaniel, after re
taining the sum due for the goods,
handed tbe fellow tbe remainder of
the fifteen dollars, which Coyne poc
keted and then walked from the store
toward the west part of town.
No sooner had he departed than one
of the customerscalled Mr. McDanlel's
attention to the signature of the
check, saying that bethought It was
a. forgery when the fellow bad pre
sented It, and that he had attempted
to warn him (McDaniel) before he
cashed the bogus paper.
A 'phone message to Mr. Terry by
McDaniel brought back the lnforma
tion that he had neither Issued such a
check as was described nor did he
know anyone of the name Coyne
This was about an hour after Coyne
had left the store, and telephone mes.
sages were immediately sent to all
constables throughout the county to
be on a lookout for the swindler. A
search of the vicinity of Murray failed
to disclose any man answering to that
of the forger. It was ascertained that
he passed Ilolmes & Smith's store soon
after eight o'clock, carrying a bundle,
presumed to be the goods purchased
of McDaniel, but after that all trace
of him was lost.
Coyne is about five feet eleven
Inches tall, has a black moustache and
black hair, well dressed, a smooth
talker and Is about 23 years of age. A
reward of 810 is offered by McDaniel
for his capture.
