Tho New Health President on a Story
as to His Baltimore Record.
Thinks Himself a Victim Rather than the
Wrecker of the Defunct Companies.
Ho Clnlms to Hnvo Lost 980,000 by

A story was printed in n morning paper
to.day purporting to give an account of tho
early business and professional career in
Baltimore of Charles Gcorjo Wilson, tho
newly appointed President of tbo Board of
In it it was Btatcd that in 1871 Mr. Wilson

Franklin Land and Loan Company, tho
Chesapeake Mutunl Land and Building Asso

Fire Insuraneo and Loan Company.
It was charged that Mr. Wilson, who was
said to bo tho President of one of thoso com
panies, a director in another and Treasurer
in the thlid, had so mismanaged theso
compiniesthat in 1874 thoy wout into bank

President Wilson rccoivod a reporter of
The Kveniso Woiiid in tho offico of tho
Health Department this morning.
Ho did not soom very seriously disturbed
over tho story which lead boen published
nbut him, although ho showed somo signs of
" It is vory unpleasant to havo such things
said about one," ho replied. ' ' All tho more
so when tho charges nre unlruo lu every re
spect, so far as any crooked practices on my
part are concerned.
" Tliero is only just enough truth in tbo
general story of my transactions in Baltimore
lit that timo'in connection with those laud
companies to givo curroncy to tho mnuy
iuuendos and insinuations w-hleh it contains
against my business integrity.
" It is true that I was connected with thoso
companies, but neither as President, Treasu
rer or eiireclor in any ono of thorn. I was
simply counsel, and although I hud a good
deal to do with tho management of them, it
was simply in that capacity.
"Tho conipauius woro organized upon n
good financial basis and for tho first two or
three .tears they made a vory largo amount of
money, for reol estate was then vory activo,
and values, though high, were advancing.
' The first year tho stockholders got 25 por
cent, in dividends, and in tho thrco years ono
of them paid as much as 'J I per cent, in divi
dends. Nobody complained then.
" When tbe panio camo in 1873, as every
body knows, it w as followed by a great con
traction of values, especially in real estate,
und our companies which had all their absets
in real property suffered.
"It was simply the result of an uuforluuato
business transaction in which I suffeicdos
wcliasothors. Iwnsalargo creditor of tho
companies, having lost about 80.000, which
I hud to pay out as iudorser un tho com-
" I feo it is statod that I reserved property
for uns'jlf under certain leases which cost
me little or nothing. That is absolutely false.
I bought cousideroblo property, paying tho
market price for it, and lost as much as any
one elso who hud invested in real csla .eat

" As for uie li living Baltimore" to avoid any
consequences eif tho failure, tho charge is
absurd, for I lived theio until 1877, when I

"I havo been in Baltiinorn many tlmen

"I regard it as an unwarranted attack

was appointed to my present osition through
a deal with Mr. Stokes, of tho Hoffman
House. That story was porfect rot.
' I want to say that when Mr. Stokos's
