Husband Out of Jail.
The fall at "W. H. Ireland recently, well
known here in business circles, and who
wasa prominent member for several yea rsor
the District National Guard, has been
very rapid. He is now in jail at Baltimore,
charged with rorging the name of Mayor
Latrobe, of thatcity, to a couple of checks.
The discovery that Ireland was leading a
checkered and double life was made a short
time ago, and it has falleu most heavily up-
on his wife, who has since then, from time
to time, made many sacrifices to save
her recreant husband, from disgrace and
PLEADED FOR HEH HUSBAND.
Mrs. Irejnnrt yesterday "went to Baltimore
and pleaded long and earnestly with Mayor
Latrobe in behalf of her husband.
Sho besought him to drop the prosecution
or tho young man and to have him released.
Sho promised that ho would make an ef
fort to lead an honest life and told a piteous
story or tho sufferings and privations
which ho and hi family have endured as a
result of his misdeed.
Mayor Latrobo kindly informed the
pleading woman that he could do nothing,
as the losers by her husband's action were
tho persons who had cashed the checks
bearing the mayor's signature.
Ireland went to Baltimore several months
ago, where he engaged in employment as
an electrician, ne was under a cloud at
that time and escaped prosecution for a
In November last, he was employed by
the publishers of the "Washington Law
Reporter. Hitherto there, had been no
breath of suspicion blown upon his char
acter and, therefore, there was great sur
prise when it was learned that he was
suspected of crookedness,, which culmi
nated in his arrest for embezzlement.
SHE GAVE UP HER PROPERTY.
J. II. Ralston, the lawyer, succeeded in
having the matter settled out of court by
Mrs. Ireland turning over sufficient prop
erty of her own to cover the amount taken
by her husband. :
He was afterward' given another chance
to reform by A. Maurice Xow, who em
ployed him "as collector for The Times.
His propensity for' going astray reas
serted itself. It wo- found that he had
forged the checks of several of the well
known advertisers of the paper.
Action was brought agniust him and ho
was hold for the grand jury, which later
returned an indictment against him.
In order to escape prosecution for this
offense he was permitted to go to Balti

turn over a new leaf.
