ARREST OF SUPPOSED FORGERS
Men Are Aeeaaed of Passing Five
(si Cheehs oa Merchants
With the arrest laat night of Thoma
Mo of 1M7 Webster street by Detectives
Heitfeld and Donahue, the police have In
custody the Isst of the men who are thought
to be the parties who forged and circulated
five bogus checks en tbe First National
bank with aa aggregate of about $180. These
forgeries fi.-st came to tbe attention of tho
authorities through the complaint of J. N.
Nelron, a dry goods man at 2222 Cuming
street, who had cashed a check for IS'i.
8ince then four others heve turned up.
George W. Stover, a confectioner at 14 IT
North Twenty. fourth street, cashed a check
for 114.75. taking out (0 rents In payment
for candy which the stranger had pur
chased. Three two checks were Identical as to
payor and payee, being aupposedly drawn
by W. L. Eeabrook of 408 North Sixteenth
street on the Frist National, In favor of
Oeerge Sutton or bearer. The man who
passed them on the shopkeepers claimed
to be 8utton and to live at 1611 Cuming
street. After Nelson had csshed the $1i
check he became suspicious and called up
Seabrook, whose name was algned to the
same, by telephone. Seabreok denied
knowledge of the checks and Nelson went
to the First National bank, where he found
that Seabreok had no deposit. Nelson then
put the matter In tha hands of Heitfeld and
Donahue. From the dry goods man and
from Stover deacrlptlona were obtained
which lead to the arrest. Moss will only
be charged with passing forged checks, aa
the police believe that he waa guilty only
to that extent, and that Frank Betta of
2624 Sherman avenue, who. waa arrested on
the night of December 22, is the person
who forged tbe names and wsa the head
of the business. James Schults of Forty
ninth street and Underwood avenue, who
waa arrested at the aame time because hs
was often In company with Betta, has been
released as he le now thought not to be

together with Arthur Sylvester of 719H

HIS ACCOUNTS FOUND SHORT
A. J. Stanley, City Salesman for the
Hclnts Pickle compaay, la
A.' J. Stanley, living at 2126 Sherman
avenue, was arrested yesterday evening by
Detectives Bavags and Davis on a charge
of embeztlement, preferred by the local
agency of the Helnts Pickle company and
by Baldrlge ft DeDord, attorneys for the
Pittsburg Surety company, which had as
sured his bond. The amount pf shortage,
so far as known, la 2600. The prisoner
waa city ealestnan and collector for the
Helntt company. He waa held last night
by Captain Hase for $1,400 bonds.
. The shortags was first discovered only a
few days ago. at which time it accidentally
became known that Stanley was about 2350
short. When asked to explain the matter,
ha said that he had lost tbe money, which
he had collected while out on hla rounds
and had put in a blllbook which had been
lost. He said that he would aquara tha
matter In a few days. Aa the travelldg
auditor ef the company was due here from
8t. Louis in a few days, the matter, was
allowed to stand as It waa. Now that an
examination of tbe book haa been made, it
haa already been found that there- Is a
shortage of 2800 and It is not Improbable
that further amounta may be found missing.
Stanley la a young married man and haa
been in the employ of tha company for
Just a year. He haa heretofore beep re
garded a trustworthy and capable. It is
possible that the matter may he settled

ago. The prisoner admitted at the polloe
atatlon that ha had appropriated money
to hie own use.
