His Stock of Drags Seized to
INDEBTEDNESS ALL WIPED OUT
His "Lawyer Confesses Judgment
for $4,200, tlie Amount Claimed
try the .Government lo Cover Ills
Alleged Defalcation Criminal
Prosecution His Trouble Now.
The developments of the remarkable
case or Mr. Frederick S. Coburn and his
alleged scheme for getting the better of
the Government have come rapidly and
with an entertaining variety of interest
since the first story of his troubles was
publiEhed in Tho Times on Monday morn
ing. During the few short hours of yes
terday's working day three attachments
were obtained from Justice O'Nell ou
tne drug btore property by small creditors ,
a constable served the attachments and
began to take away the property. The
rostotfice Inspectors discoverd the amount
of Coburn's alleged defalcation, the Gov
ernment nned hun for the amount, $1,200,
Mr. Ci.buirt, through his Inwjer, confessed
judgment, and two United Stares mar
shals tooli possesion of what was left
of the 5,00 stock in satisfaction of
the Government claim.
It is said now that all of Mr. Coburn's
indebtedness, both In the way of ordinary
bills ami because of his alleged manipu
lation of bogus money orders, has been
Av'Iped out, and that the only remaining
tiouble for him today Is tho criminal
prosecution by the Government. At a late
hour last night the Inspectors reported
that no trace of him had yet been dis
covered, however, and It seems possible
that he may never be apprehended.
Early in the day yesterday the soda
water ceased to fizz in Mr. Coburn's foun
tains, and the capsicum porous plasters
and quinine began to disappear in lart'e
packing-boxes. The store was clo'd for
business. Mr. Leadbeater, the Alexandria
drug manufacturer, and Mr. Henry Evan-j,
the druggist, had claims for small amounts
against Mr. Cobuni, and there was also
a grocery bill rrom a local firm. These
were put In the hands of a lawyer several
days ago, but he did not press them except
lo request that they be paid. When Coburn's
story was printed exclusively in The Times
Monday morning, and it was learned that,
besides being In trouble, he was alleged
to have fWl the city, these creditors be
As published in The Times yesterday
morning the suit brought by one of Mr
Coburn's partners t-howed that the titlt
to the drug store property was in some
doubt. However, the lawyer for these
rrehtoro believed that no matter who
was finally adjudged the owner of the
property much the better plan for him
to pursue would be to get possession of
his share of Itlmmediately. The constable
was on the premises Monday afternoon
and yesterday morning, and before noon
yesterday be had begun to haul away a
portion of the stock.
Some time during the forenoon Chief
Inspector Ilandet, of the I'ostufflee De
partment and his assistants had finished
the inspection of the accounts of Mr. Co
burn's branch ptofflce sufficiently to
know that the amount of his shortage
would be at least $4,200. A suit for this
amount wn- filed by the United States
yesterday at noo n.
Contrary to the usual manner of waiting
three or four days before confessing Judg
ment, Mr. Thomas Taylor, the attorney,
came into the court a fw moments after
the salt was filed yesterday, and, stating
that he represented Mr. Coburn, confessed
Judgment for the full amount. With this
Judgment two United States marshals were
sent to the drug store and took away what
remained of the property.
The young clerk left in charge of the
store by Mr. Coburn when he left on Satur
day, la still very loval to his old employer.
He refused both the inspectors and the
newspaper men a pictnre of Ids employer
it he hart one, and defended him against
the charges made against him in every
way. This young man said that the debts
of the tore, aside from the claim of the
Government, were small and Insignificant
compared with its value which, he said,
was $5,000 or more, and he seemed very
eorry that tlie creditors had seen fit to
take the htep of closing it up.
The postof flee inspectors are only hopeful
of catching Coburn, but as yet have very
httle ground for their belief. They
are looking for him in Boston, where he
told his clerk he was going when he left,
and In New York, Philadelphia, aud two
other cities, but as yet have found no
clew. From the elaborate and almost
perfect system of worklnghW money order j.
described fully In The Times heretofore,
it seems that Dr. Coburn is a shrewd and
very clever man, and thatha may be able
to evade the juithoriiies successfully. It
is said, however, that be may return by
the advice of his lawyer.
Attorney Taylor took the step of set
tling with the Government immediately to
make his client's criminal case as favorable
as possible In the eyes of the courts. It
was stated by District Attorney Davis yes
terday, however, that lie would prosecute
Dr. Coburn, and that he had no doubt
that he had a good cas against him. Mr.
Taylor, on the other hand, is said to be

FIRM CANNOT BE DISBARRED
An Interesting Point Mtide by tho
Lawyer for tho Defense Fraudu
lent nd Corrnpt Misconduct Must
lie Shown -ome Admissions by
the Coinnilssioner of PutentH.
Argument for the dcfenEe in the case
of John Wcddcrburn or John Wedder
burn & Co. cited to show cause why the
Commissioner otf Patents should not dis
bar him or the, firm waB begun at the
Patent Office yesterday.
The opening argument was made by
Attorney Forth Toward the close of hU
speech lie made the point that tlie Com
missioner of Pateuts could not disbar the
firm of John Weddcrburu & Co. for the
firm being tt corporation It could not
practice law, and as lc had never been
admitted before the Patent Office, the
Commissioner of Patents could not, there
fore, disbar it. The corporation was rep
resented before tho Patent Office by
John Wedderburn, who held power of at
torney from clients who sought to trans
act business with the Patent Office. It
the Commissioner of Patents saw rit he
could disbar John Wedderburn, but he
could not disbar John Wedderburn & Co.
Attorney Ford adduced authorities to
sustain this point.
Mr. Ford referred to the methods cm
ployed by the prosecution, stating that
F. A.Lehman had sent out a circular ask
ing all persons who had a grievance
against the firm of John Wedderburn &
Co. to send thosecomplaiuts to Washington,
and that William Small had advertised
for evidence against the accused.
"This," he said, "would have been open
to criticism had It been done by John
Wedderburn & Co., but as It was done by
the prosecution it has escaped criticism."
The patent lawyers of Washington, Mr
Ford said, had banded themselves together
V) force John Wedderburn out of the busi
ness. No other firm had submitted its
business to such a searching investigation
.is had John Wedderburu & Co. It was
natural that some errors should be dis
covered, but the firm of John
Wedderburn would challenge com
parison with any other patent firm
in Washington. He maintained that the
Commissioner could not disbar a patent
agent, except for gross misconduct, and he
further maintained that om: of the essen
tials to gross misconduct was willfulness,
and that negligence in no way should be
taken as gross misconduct. The Commis
sioner could not disbar for carelessness or
negllg"nce, but the misconduct must be
willful. This had not been proved by the
evidence. The misconduct must also be
fraudulent and corrupt.
'You need not discuss that, as I am
aware that Is the law," said the Commis
sioner. Tho mistakes were made, not by John
Wedderburn, hut by his employes.
Commissioner ButtcrWorth here said.
"Suppose I establish a Furglcal institute
and that I advertise that I have skillful
surgeons and unbounded facilities, have 1
then a right to employ batchers""
Mr. Ford retorted that John Wedderburn
did not employ butchers, and it was not
charged that he did.
Attorney Ford replied to Attorney Doo
llttlc, who Monday said that Wedderburn
was ignorant nnd Incompetent, by the
statement that not one bit of evidence had
been introduced los'iow his incompetence
"But' said' Mr. Ford, "admitting that
he was ignorant of the law, you, as Com
missioner of Tatents, have no right to
disbar htm. You may not like his methods,
butyou haven right todlsbar him only when
willful fraud has been proved."
In the matter of prize giving, Attorney
Ford said that prizes were the order of
the day Magazines and newspapers gave
them and many other business enterprises.
A parent itself was In the nature of a
prize. He defended the advertisement of
John WcddPrburn, and said that some of
the arguments against these advertise
ments were absurd and seemed based on
the assumption that everything John
Wedderburn did was wrong.
In the matter of the patent cases In
which John Wedderburn accepted fees
after tlie application for patent had been
rejected by the Patent Office, Mr. Ford
said out of 11,000 cases, only six had
been shown to have- been sb rejected.
He argued that these cases were the
jesnlt of error and not of design. Mr.
"Ford read the letter which was sent out
by the National Becordcr, to elients of
Wedderburn, offering to print a picture
and blographv of Inventors, including fifty
copies of the paper and two annual sub
scriptions, for $5.
Mr. I'ord contended that those who sent
the money got what they bargained for.
He pointed out that if an appraiser for
Weddert'urn did place a valuation upon
patents submitted, this did not constitute
fraud, even though the valuation be wrong.
Fraud consisted of intent to defraud car
ried into execution.
Mr. Ford then discussed the evidence or
Witness Gilll3, who, Mr. Ford said, wus
a discharged employe, and who had threat
ened to "get even" with Wedderburn.
The defense sought to show that Gillis
was removed from the control of the search
department of the Wedderburn Company.
Attorney Ford dwelt on the fact that
the Wedderburn searchers reported 62 per
cent of the cases unpatentable.
"If the company intended fraud, why
did Wedderburn employ 'Seventeen of the
most skillful specification-writers in Wash
ington?'' asked Mr. ,Ford. He insisted
that one ca&e which was reported as fa
vorable and in which no search had been
made, was due to the personal neglect
of the searcher, and that Wedderburn
honestly believed that the search bad been

their patent business, pending in the hands
of SAld Wedderburn, be transferred.
Mr. Ford .declared, in answer to the
charge-that Wedderburn induced inventors
to appeal their cass wh intheirapplications
had been at first rejected, that he had
won 25 per cent of his pases on appeal;
a larger percentage in the courts.
Replying to the charge Jiat Wedderburn
had not kept his cliec.s fully advised
as to the progress of a case, it was sub
mitted that no lawyer mads it a pructice
