Found Against City Bank
Mr. Childress, Mr. Betts and An
■ Mr. Childress Gives a Statement
About the Matter.
A Partial Result of tha Labors of the
Grand Jurj-Hr. Childress Gives
an Interflow Which Out
lines alls Position.
In advance ot the report of tbe grand
jury the Herald is able to state tbat
among the indictments ordered and
drawn np are one against A. D. Childress,
president, one against Le Grande Betts,
teller, and one against another officr of
the defunct City bank.
It ia very well known that tbe grand
jury has had under inveatigation the af
fairs of the defunct City bank.
At one time and another a number
of bankers as well as persons familiar
with the management of the bank have
been observed in attendance on the
grand jury, waiting to be called in as
These pointers have not been loet upon
persona who have happened around the
grand jnry room.
They have been enough to set the city
on the gui vive as to the possible out
come of the investigation.
The fact that the grand jnry attempted
to report a batch of indictments Thurs
day afternoon, which Judge Pierce from
Ban Diego wonld not receive because one
juror was absent, has added to the in
terest felt throughout the city in the
matter, and the probability of the bring
ing of a criminal charge against A. D.
Childress, president of the closed bank,
and others, is a subject that is being
very widely discussed.
It was expected that the grand jury
would make their report yesterday
morning, bat Judge Fierce waited in
vain for it, and it ia said that the jurors
felt somewhat piqued at the conserva
tive judge because he failed to let them
file the big batch of indictments tbey
handed up to him. At any rate they
did not report, and will not now until
Bankera and people interested in the
Childress case have by the unexpected
obstacles thrown in tbe way of tbe re
port of the grand jury, had their curlos
ey worked up to a fever heat.
THE SECRET LEAKS OUT.
Up to yesterday tbe grand jnry guard
■d tbe secret of tbe indictment! ordered,
rary well. There bad been uo leaks,
and tbe newspapers bad not even pub
lished tumors about their action.
It is very difficult to keep., such a
sensational thing as an - indictment
against A. D. Childress quiet, however,
no matter how carefully a grand jury
may guard the avenues of information.
THE FILING POSTPONED. } —,^1
The indictments are not yet filed of
course, but they have been drawn np
and unless the grand jury changes its
mind, they will be among the batch
which will be reported Monday.
The crime which it is alleged 'has
been committed by tbe indictments is
tbe embezzlement of county funds
which were on special deposit in the
City bank at tbe time it olosed.
There was at that time over f 22,000 of
the county money in the bank. This
money was in the bank by virtue of
an arrangement with County Treasurer
J. De Barth Sborb, who distributed the
county funds around to the variona
clearing bouse banks. In order to hedge
against the provision of the law which
says such a thing must not be done, Le
Grande Betts, a teller in tbe City bank,
waß appointed a deputy county treas
urer. The county funds deposited in
tbe bank were in bis charge, and be waß
supposed to see that they were kept
intact bb a special deposit.
But when the bank closed it became
at once patent that the county funds
had not been kept as a special deposit.
There was not enough coin in the bank
to replace the $22,000, and tbe trouble
Under tbe law the provisions relative
to county funds say that tbey are to be
eacredly guarded. The statutes are
mandatory and expressed with a clear
ness and emphauis which admits of no
dispute. They say that the person en
trusted with such funds who diverts
them from their proper use is guilty of
embezzlement, and shall be punished.
But in order to get at the true inward
noes of tbe intent of President Childress
the grand jury naturally went thorough
ly into the management of the bank,
aud it is said they discovered a
KKCJELEBSNBSH AND LOOSENESS
that was appalling. These things were
taken into consideration by the grand
jury in arriving at the conclusion that
Mr, Childress came within their reach.
The other bankers in the city who
have special deposits of the county
tfunda are profoundly interested in the
whole matter, because the manner in
which they have kept the funds may
become a subject for official scrutiny.
Home of them, it is said, have been
feeling quite nervous during the investi
gation, but it is believed tbat now they
have all such deposits intact.
They are concerned because it directs
tbe attention of the public to tbe policy
of allowing the county funds to be kept
outside the county treasury.
MR. CHILDRESS IN TUB CITY.
When Mr. Childress learned that the
bank affairs were being investigated, he
waa contemplating a buainees trip to
Arizona. Hie attorneys advised him to
remain in tbe city and he did not leave
until he had notified the grand jury of
tbe importance it was for him to go.
He did go and returned about two weeks
ago. Hnce tbat time be has been with
hie family at the corner of Waahington
and Toberman streets, in the Colonel
Eastman residence, into which he
moved after tbe destruction of his own
residence some months ago by fire.
BOW TUB BANK CLOSED.
In view of tbe proposed action of tbe
grand jury a glance at the troubles of
the City bank is apropos.
Until tbe financial crash two months
ago, there were only a very few persons
who knew the insecure poaition
ocoupied by tbe bank. Bankers
generally had some inkling that
it was carrying too heavy a
load, but tbe extent of the burden was
not generally known.
The bank was started several years
ago. and Mr. A. D. Childress, ita presi
dent was the active and actual head of
the concern. He waa a ready writer,
was always prominent in banking cir
cles. He delivered a number of papers
before the bankers' association, of which
he is secretary, and was generally re
garded aa one of tbe moat enterprising
bankers in this city.
The fatal day came, however, when
he could not tide over the next day
without assistance from the clearing
house. He asked for it and waß prom
ised at night tbat he should have $25,000
the next morning. When morning ar
rived, however, tbe clearing house de
clined to give tbe aid, and the bank
closed its doors, precipitating the run on
the banka of tbe city, which seems now
like a bad dream.
Receiver Brodtbeck took oharge of the
bank, and an investigation of its affairs
was begun, which, in tbe most favorable
light, made an extremely bad showing.
Tbe legend, "Depositors will be paid in
fall," became a travesty when the ac
tual condition of the bank's affairs was
There was very little money in the
bank, and an inspection of its assets re
vealed tbat there was a large line of
securities which were almost worthless.
Before tbe doors closed Mr. Childress
and some of the directors resolved to
tnrn over some securities for the pro
tection of the county funds, and they
put them in the bands of George H.
Stewart, cashier of the Bank of Amer
The straggle for these securities be
tween the depositors and the bondsmen
for County Treasurer Sborb, still pend
ing, ia a matter of such recent occur
rence that it is atill fresh in the memory
of the public.
Aside from the fSO.OOO worth of
securities, there appears to be very little
left for the depositors. They have been
returned to Mr. Stewart for him to rea
lise on them as soon as possible and tbe
county is thoroughly prolecte'aTas far as
the ia concerned, both by tbe
securities given up by Mr. Childress and
tbe bcadßrujen treasurer.

While the bank is still in the hands
of a receiver, Judge Shaw a few weeks
ago granted a petition to declare
it insolvent, and this will eventually
involve the retirement of the receiver
and the appointment of an assignee.
Numerous civil suits have been com
menced in connection with the bank's
affairs, which are now pending. One of
tbem has been the bringing of suit
against County Treasurer Sborb on his
official bond for the money of the county
which was on deposit at the time it
closed. Others are by depositors, and
at the present time the amount of liti
gation over the matter has assumed for
A PROSPECTIVE LIVELY TIME.
On Monday there will be a lively time
before Judge Shaw in the superior court,
as the various suits against tbe City
bank and its shareholders will be pre
Among the cases to be considered are
tbe suits of the depositors against the
shareholders and the suit in interven
tion by tho Arizona Construction com
pany in regard to certain securities and
$1250 on special deposit of tbat organi
zation, the details of which were out
lined by tbe Herald at tbe time.
It is also generally believed that Mr.
Brodtbeck, tbe receiver, and Mr. Bur
nett, his attorney, will step out of their
places in connection with the settle
ment of the affairs of the defunct bank.
mk. Childress's statement.
Mr. Childress knew nothing of the in
dictment against him, and received the
!iewß from a Herald reporter who vis
ited him at his residence late last night.
The late president of the City bank
invited the reporter into the library,
where the announcement of the grand

jury proceedings was made by the
Mr. Childress sat still for a few mo
ments, his hand shading his face, and
gave no outward sign of emotion. Then
be aaked tbe reporter if he was certain
hia information was correct.
He waa told that the information was
beyond queation correct, after which he
asked whether any other of the bank
officials were indicted.
On hearing that Mr. Le Grand Betts
and another late official were also in
dicted, Mr. Childress exclaimed:
"If tbey drag ua into oourt to anawer
to a charge of embezzlement, it will be
nothing more or less than meaningless
cruelty. Mr. Betts is penniless today,
and I tell you, man to man, tbat I stand
here ruined, without tbe means
to provide my family with the necessa
ries of life. Everything I possessed I
turned over for the benefit of my credit
ors; my father did the same, with the
exception of his homestead, which I
advised him, on account of his age, to
"I am glad I did so," added Mr.
Childress, "now that we have been per
secuted to this extent."
The speaker's voice shook when he
spoke of hia wife and family, and the
moat infuriated of the creditors of the
City bank would have felt some sympa
thy had they seen tbe haggard, hollow
eyed man, who learned for the first
time last night that be was to be charged
with a criminal offense.
"Did you expect the grand jury would
take this coarse, Mr, Childress?"
"We had all, of coarse supposed it
might happen, But I had hoped that
when the jury had examined into tbe
bank's affairs tbat we should be exon
erated," replied Mr. Cbildreae.
"To what cause do you attribute the
action of the jury?"
"Primarily, to the appointment of an
adverse receiver. He took the worst
view of everything, and allowed no
time in which to realize on assets, or in
which to diacover their selling value. I
was not allowed to advise or to Bay a
word in tbe ordering of affairs. I waa
an alien, and debarred from even assist
ing my creditors.
"If," continued . Mr. Childress, "we
are to be prosecuted on account of the
money belonging to the county, why
then, every bank in town should be
prosecuted for we are all in tbe same
The securities deposited for the county
money show a margin of $20,000 in favor
of tbe county. But how can securities
be realiaed upon at such a time aa this,
when tbe beat stocks in the country are
selling four and five points lower than
they ever reached before ?
"Oar receiver was aleo badly advised,
this, together with the action of a few
infuriated depositors, is the reason for
"I suppose poople think that I have
robbed the bank of all their money,"
Mr. Childress smiled bitterly and con
tinuing said: "I should have been
away long ago, seeking employment, for
it is absolutely necessary for me to be
able to earn a salary, if it had not been
for the rumors of arrest and indictment
which have been filling the air. If the
pioceedings against me last any length
of time I shall become dependent on my
Mr. Childress waß very bitter against
certain of his creditors, who, be de
clared, would be satisfied with nothing
but his titter ruin and disgrace.
"The shame of failure," he remarked,
"was hard enongb to bear, but this"—
here he paused for a second—"this is
tbe last straw."
When asked as to whether be had
any idea as to whom his lawyers would
be, or who would be bis bondsmen, tbe
erstwhile bank president declared that
be had no idea in either case: he
thought that some of his banker friends
would probably go on his bond.
Should the proceedings turn out iavor
ably to him, he would, he said, leave
Los Angeles as soon as his affairs would

According to the Charge Made
by Mrs. Davis.
She Asserts He Made a Vile Assault
Upon Her Person.
The Old Man Locked Up In Jail—He
Claims the Charge Is False.
Ibe Story as Told by
A brutal attempt at rape occurred
Thursday afternoon, and George Cooper,
a bnilder, is now in the county jail,
charged with committing the offence.
The complaining witness ia a pretty
little widow, a Mrs. Davis, who resides
at 224 fiaat Third afreet.
Tbe lady stated yeaterday, that on
Wednesday last she visited a house on
Oman avenue, which waa in course of
erection, and in company with a lady
friend entered the building for tbe pur
pose of inquiring the rent.
Cooper waß busy painting the floors
and stated tbat he waa the proprietor of
the bouae. After some conversation he
remarked that be would like- to have
Mrs. Davie for a tenant, and told her he
would call next day at her residence and
inform her as to what rent ebe would be
required to pay.
Thursday afternoV between 2 and 3
o'clock Cooper knocked at the door and
was admitted by Mm. Davis who at that
ime waß alone in tbe hotiHe.
Cooper eat down, and after remarking
upon the inferior construction of the
cottage, expressed a wish for Mra. Davis
to show him over tbe house.
Not suspecting any treachery Bhe com
plied witb his requeat, and after passing
through the eitting rooms the lady
pushed open the door of a bedroom.
She waa a little in front of Cooper and
no aooner had she opened tbe door, ebe
a certs, than the brute pushed bor
aside and closed tbe door.
Mra. Davia, startled, turned round,
and Cooper seizing her threw her down
upon the floor and attempted the as
