Gove, S. J. Car roll, Mrs. O. F. Farman; A. B. Mil ler and divers other persons, firms and corporations by fraudulently in ducing them to purchase shares of stock and other securities at prices far in excess of their values.

Moore were in full control of the Guaranty Se curities company of Omaha and Lin coln and the Guaranty" Securities company with headquarters in Des Moines. ' Alleged Conspiracy Detailed. Part of the conspiracy alleged was, the indictment says, to organ ize the Guaranty Securities company located in Denver and to organize three banks,; one to be located at College View, Neb., to'be known as the Farmers State bank; one to be located at Lincoln to be called the Midland Savings bank, and one in Omaha, the Pioneer Slate bank. A manipulation of moneys and se curities is alleged. The Colonial Timber & Coal cor poration exploitation occupies much ot the space in the indictment. The state of Virginia in 1838 declared forfeited all title to the 140.000 acres claimed by this corporation in ita prospectus, it is alleged. A con spiracy is charged in the formation of a $10,000,000 company and the floating of $2,000,000 bonds based on this property upon which, it is al leged, 1 3,000 people have lived for years.
