Building an 1 Lan association of N ' "
America have been arretted by P -!-
office Inspector Stuart, charged with u-r
ng the mills for fraud.
It is charged that the men who have
been conducting this association have
swindlel thousands of people from every
state in the union and taken in from
HOC, (W to $3-'jO,UUU and given nothing
in return. The victims hail from
Maine to California. From facts al
ready known aod the scheme will par
ade! that of the great' Fund Wawindls
which was broken up about five years
There are still twj more at lilierty.
These two men that are missing, it is
believed, got away with the moat money.
For six months or more lettrs have
bften received from ail parts of the coun
try by the poitofli :ee nd city authori
ties, protesting that the National Capi
tal Savings Build'ng and Loan useocia
tiot of North America was not what its
projectors represented it to be, and that
it was collecting money' and making no
laspector S'uart has b.cj working on
the case four months. He fo:nd that
the concern was gigantic io is frau 1.
'Ihe scheme w ;s advertized through
agents who sent circulars and docu
ments showing Ue association to be
gilt-edged. At the t me Captain Stuart
took charge of the case L juis M. Morti
mer, the grand secretary, was appar
ently the responsible man, and handled
the cash received in large amounts ev
ery day. Ciptaio Stuart visited th
county offices frequently uisguised as a
letter carrier in order to secure evi
dence. Several weeks ago Mortimer disap
peared and after having waited in vain
for his return Captain Stuart decided
to secure the others.
George O. Ferguson of Lincoln, Neb.,
who secured about si. ty victims in his
city, was summoned here, and with his
assirtance evidence was procured for
Mr. Ferguson in an interview said:
"The association was represented to our
tow n by a local firm acting in good
faith. The teople of Nebka are very
much in favor of the building and loan
association plan and the offers of the
concern were soon snapped up. They
sold shares for 50 cents each, wilh a
paymeut of 811.03 monthly fo.- six
montesat the end of which time a
1X0 loan would ba paid for. Then
tbei was a meml erdiip fee of S3), an
appraisement fee cf J20 and 14 1 fcr
three months' payment, thus making
8!)5. The concern made one loan of
toOO that was genuine and this wan just
rough bait to lead others to inves, and
hund.-fds sent their money to Cuicago,
and on the strength of the loans they
exp tsd to make contracts fo-homes
Contracts were let and bui'ding bi-gan.

President Wood of the Wesieyan uni
versily, who was quite a luavy investor,
came to Chicago to investigate. He
visited theifnje-, and Manager Morti
morc, who seemad to oe quite a fine
business man, gav3 him assurances that
he would get the loan3. But ths immey
never came, a'id finally I laid the C ise
before the post-. Mi je authorities."
Inspector Stuart and District Attor
ney Gilchrist went over the books of
the concern and found that seventeen
legitimate loans had been made in as
many staea. These, it would seem,
were made to act as a bait. No record
of any other loans could be found, al
though the books tho w that money has
been received from hundreds of peoplo.
A rough estima'e of the amount of
aaeney received is 1175,000 in the year
and half the association has been in
The books of the association show
that it had agents in many states.
These agents transmitted hundreds of
dollars daily in check?, drafts, money

Fourteen persons were found to bve

one of lamentbtion and mourning.
The coroner immediately summoned
a jury and after an examination pes.
netted the removal of the bodies. The
jury, in its verdict, strongly censured

The placo where the accident oc
