.Man Who Cashed Bogus Paper
in Norfolk Captured.
tHE HAS MENTAL CONFUSIA.
I Frank E. Warlngi Alias G. H. Blair ,
Who Was Wanted In Many States ,
Arrested by E A. Bullock Ho Was
Paroled From Hospital at Tlmo.
[ From Monday's Dally. ]
E. A. Dullook has roturncd from
Onmhii where went to nrrctt n forger
Ho found his man , convicted him of the
crime iu court and loft the follow be
hind the bars of an insane asylnin in
stead of the penitentiary. The man
passed under the mvmo of G , II. Blair iu
this city , cashed checks for $100 at the
Oxnard hotel lust Juno , escaped and
was only caught by Mr. Bullock last
week. Ho was wanted in Illinois , Iowa
Missouri , Miohipnn and "Wyoming and
several parts of Nebraska.
The forger's real nntno is Prank E.
Waring and he is the sou of Court
Reporter Waring of Douglas county
and a brother of Grace Waring , court
reporter for Judge Hunger. He was re
leased from jail on u habeas corpus pro
ceeding , ( lied by Dr. Greene , supriu-
tondeut of the hospital for the insane
. at Lincoln.
Waring came to Norfolk last Juno
and cashed two checks at the Oxnard
hotel , one for $75 and the other for $25.
They were endorsed by O. H. Vail ,
manager , and cashed at the Citizens
National bank. They were drawn on
The Postuni Cereal company , and were
theregnlatiou blank check forms for that
house , numbered aud signed apparently
by G. W. Post , president of the con-
oein.Waring left the city. The checks
went to the company and were returned
as forgeries. A search was immediately
begun and no trace of the fellow found
for several months. Finally ho was
located by Mr. Bullock , through a
traveling man in Omiiha , and arrested.
The trial was held Thursday.
The forger , it appeared , is troubled
with mental consusia. He had been
committed to the Lincoln hospital in
January , 1002. Later , when it was
found that the confinement was break
y ing down the patient's health he was
.paroled and placed under care of his
father. It was during this period that
he visited Norfolk.
Waring has been passing forged paper
in nearly every western state. It is in
this form and this alone that his men
tal oonfusia make ; itself manifest
Though his repeated crimes of one sort
and another he has made his father a
bankrupt man , the losses sustained hav
ing driven him out of his home.
The details of the story are pitiful to
n degree. Mr. Bullock went to Omaha
determined by every means possible to
place Waring in the penitentiary. When
he left the court room he had changed
his feeling in regard to the man , en
tirely. He was touched by the eight of
the poor old mother and the ruined
father and he considers that his loss of
$100 is slight and easy to bear compared
with the suffering brought upon others
by the insane rascality.
The police of Omaha did everything
that could bo asked of them iu locating
the man and Mr. Bullock was highly
pleased with his treatment on every
As owner of the Oxuard hotel at the
time of the crime , ho was rendered
morally liable for the loss by the signa
ture of his manager , though the signa
ture was personal.
' It is understood that Henry Horst of
Madison aud the Koohlur hotel of Grand
Island were also caught , besides busi
ness houses and banks in Ohadrou aud

MORTON MEMORIAL MONUMENT ,
Description of Memorial to Commem
orate the Father of Arbor Day.
Shortly after the death of J. Sterling
Morton in the spring of 1902 , the Arbor
Day Memorial association was organ
ized at Nebraska Oity , Neb. , the sole
object of this association's existanco
bolng to provide a suitable monument
iu honor of Mr. Morton , the father of
Arbor day. During the early part of
the past winter several eastern son'ptoru
were asked to compote for the contract of
erecting the monument and to submit
models of their designs. Several artists
entered the competition , and all of their
models were sent to the Art Institute of
Chicago , where the executive committee
of the association made their award In
The contract was awarded to Rudolph
Evans , of New York , because his model
was considered the most finished aud
comprehensive in the competition. A
description of his design follows :
The object sought in the design is to
combine simplicity with dignity aud
Impressiveness , thus typifying the sim
ple manliness and nobility which char
acterized tVo father of Arbor day.
The central figure of the design is , of
course , the ttatno of Mr. Morton him
self , which stands npon n massive yet
graceful pedestal , in an atcitndo char
acteristic of his strong , frank life , His
right arm hangs easily by his side , and
in his left hand ho lightly holds a pa
per , as though of recent reference ; a
branch of a tree rests easily at his feet ,
while a plowshare , slightly in the rear ,
suggests the rugged pioneer days of his
early lifo. At the foot of the pedestal
stands a graceful wood sprite , her left
hand tenderly protecting a young , grow
ing tree , thus symbolizing the spirit of
the wise , public-spirited ideal expressed
by Mr. Morton's simple formula , "Plant
Trees. " A semi-circular stone bench
stands at some distance back of the
postal , aud forming a frieze around it
are the words "Pioneer , Statesman ,
Scholar , Tree-planter. " The back of
the bench 'is further ornamented with
two largo medallions iu bronze , plainly
visible to the right and left o * the statue
as one stands before it Theao illus
trate , the ono au important epoch in
Mr. Mortou's career , and the other his
heart's desire ; namely , the treaty with
the Pawnee Indians iu which ho promi
nently participated , and a group of
school children planting trees. The
lower part of this bench boars the in
scription "Erected by the Arbor Day
Memorial Association in Memory of J.
Sterling Morton , 100V
Upon the pedestal itself the following
is inscribed : "J. Sterling Morton ,
Father of Arbor Day. Plant Trees. "
The reverse of the pedestal bears a con
cise sketch of Mr. Morton's lifo and
The spaciousness aud solidity of the
base and foundation of the monument
are intended to harmonize with the
vastness and substantiality of the west
The platform around the monument
will be about seventy by fifty foot , and ,
excepting for the brick which will bo
used in the platform , the entire monument
ment will bo of granite and bronze. It
will bo erected in i Mutton park , Ne
braska Oity , Neb.
The publio has responded very gener
ously to the requests for donations , but
the association will need about $4,000
moro in order to have sufficient funds
to meet the cost of thn monument.
Contributions to meet this deficiency
will bo gladly received aud acknowl
edged by thn Arbor Day Memorial As
sociation , Nebraska City , Neb.
