Wholesale Dealers DcfVauded Out
of 150000 to 200000
A widespread swindle will probably be
exposed by the United States secret ser
vice at Wilkesbarre Pa in a few days
The swindlers are a gang of men who
have been systematically defrauding
wholesale dealers throughout the countiy
and have made from 150000 to S200000
Last Friday the first move was made when
Adolph Blau was arrested on the charge
of using the United States mails for the
purpose of perpetrating fraud On Satur
day Louis Itifkin was also arrested and
each gave bail before United States Com
missioner Ilahn in 3500 For some jears
a number of small merchants in tho vicin
ity of Wilkesbarre have failed Some
fifty two have already been counted who
it is alleged wore backed by Blau and
Rifkin The losses of several New York
and Philadelphia house were so large that
they sent representatives to Washington
who asked the postotlice department to
interest itself It was found that the mo
dus operandi of the combination was to
establish peddlers and small merchants in
business in various parts of the country
obtain by subterfuge a rating for them
with Duns and Bradstreets mercantiio
agencies and after thus establishing their
credit to forward through the mails to
manufacturers and jobbers of New York
and Philadelphia and other places orders
for merchandise After getting a large
stock one of the co workers in the swind
ling scheme would step in and sell them
out on a judgment note thus depriving
the real creditors in New York and Phila
delphia and other places of their money
One Cent on Every Message Sent
Over the Wires
On July 1 the new revenue law requires

sages to attach stamps to their messages
and to cancel the stamps- in accordance
with the law by writing their initials and
date across them The Western Union
and Postal Telegraph Companies and the
caute companies operating have arranged
for a supply of stamps at their officesfor
sale to the senders of messages who may
not be provided with them The officials
of the com panics say however that Ihcv
are not prepared to provide stamps in suf
ficient quantities to cover all the messages
sent from their efiics because heir whole
uusiness wiUd require the outlay of a
huge sum of money in fact possibly the
