International Stock Guaran
tee Just a Bluff for

MA SOX 0. WORTH ARKK8TKI)
Accused of Acting as Now York
Representative in Victim
Simultaneous arrests In ten cltle-s.
Including New York, yesterday smashed
mi alleged International stock fraud
scheme to victimize corporations which
were about to put stock on the market.
After months of Investigation by Fed
eral agents In Kant, West and South,
In Canada nnd In Kngland, Information
was tiled before, t'nltcd States Com
missioners nnd In several cases Indict
ments obtained from (.rand .Juries, nam
ing officers or brokers' agents of the
American Redemption Company of
Rochester. N. Y and the Chicago De
benture Company tf Chicago. I'se of
the malls to defraud between 1500,000
und $1,500,000 Is said to have been ob
tained was charged.
Then, when everything was In icadl-1
tiers, nn exact hour was agreed upon
for the raids In the ton cities. Yen
terday to the very minute Federal offl-
cers raided the various offices and theleen from dealing In dla.-.onds. and ln
arrests were made before warning slg-
nnls could be Maslieil from one clt tn
In New York. Rochester. Chicago.
Cleveland, lluffulo, Philadelphia. Boston
Newark. Dallas and Dubuque, la., tin
alleged offenders were taken by surprise
and within a few hour. they had been
taken before a United States CommN
sinner for preliminary hearing or were
on their way to face Indictments In
Cincinnati and Ituffuln.
The ring, with Its international con
nections In Canada and Kngluud, Is said
to have had an easy time defrauding
promoters and buddlug companies
through fees received on promise of
guaranteeing securltlo nnd securing
their sale through stock and insurance
companies controlled by themrches.
The post office people sav fees ul
were secured for "Investlga'tlng" prop-
erty and that some excuse nlwuvs was
found by the men under arrest for fall
ing to render the promised service.
The scheme, which was launched In
Cincinnati, Is said to hme proved no
successful In netting thousands of dol
lars from Its dupes thut It soon led to
the organization of the American Re
demption Company nnd the Chicago De
benture Company as "clearing houses."
The men who wero arrested in the
ten different cltle yesterday merely
acted as the agents or "cappers" of these
two central concerns, say the post office
Postal Inspector Entemann, who
caused the nrrcst of A. Price Crane of
Hunter & Crane. S00 Broad street, New-J
urk, n one of the brokers alleged to
have been Involved, gave an Interesting
description of the International Syndi
cate's methods last evening.
He explained that the brokers adver
tised, saying they were ready to dispose
of the stock of any mining company on
a 2 per cent, basis. In answer to these
advertisements tho brokers received
many "lends." They then would offer. It
Is nild. to handle the stock, bonds or
certificates of the applicant company
"after they were guaranteed."
Several days later, the Inspector
stated, the firm wishing to dispose of
Its s ock would receive a letter from
the redemption company announcing It
was willing to guarantee the stock.
It Is alleged that the firm, after pay
ing a certain amount for that purpose,
was informed that the money wns only
a retaining fee. This Is the Interesting
pol... In the negotiations at which the
International Syndicate entered.. Moro
money was demanded for the payment
of n representative of tho Interna
tional company to Inspect tho applicant
company, after which the redemption
company would consider guaranteeing '
tho stock Issue, After more money was
duly paid nn engineer would Inspect the '.
proi rty, It Is said. In almost all cases.
It Is alleged, an adverse report would be '
mude by tho engineer and "tho nppll
;atlon would ho dropped.
The post ofllcn Inspectors cite nn
Interesting specific case, In which they
allege Crano was involved. It was that
of the Pittsburg Superior Mines Com
pany of Pittsburg which Is said to havo
heen duned out of IS.f.OO. '
Transactions Crane hnd with the I
PlttshuriF eomnanv nre said tn hiv. A I
up to his arrest. The company entered I
Into negotiations with Crane for the sale'
of $500,000 worth of stocks. He Is said i
to havo notified It that tho stocks '
would have to be guaranteed, and a few
days later the Redemption compuny In
a letter to the Pittsburg concern Is al
leged to have expressed willingness to
guarantee the Issue for $1,000 for each
$100,000 worth of stock,
The mines company communicated
with Hunter & Crane about the Re
demption company, nnd ln the reply tho
former concern received It was stated
that the Rochester firm was bona fide,
Negotiations wero then opened for the
first Issue of slock und, It Is suld, $1,000
was paid for the guaranty. No uctlon
wns taken to dispose nf the stock, and
It is charged thnt when the mines com
pany made complaint about 'the delay It
was put off with various excuses.
The postnl inspectors said that after
ninety days tho mines company was
! notified that the $1,0C0 was only a re.
tn.ner. When the broker was appealed
