FRAUDS AND COUNTERFEITS.
There are sharpers and swindlers
without number, and there are fools
.enough to support them. One fellow
will advertise to sell a recipe for
twenty-five cents, whereby any one
can easily write without pen or ink.
Fools without number will bite at the
almost naked hook, and probably get
an answer to write with a pencil.
Another sharper will possibly write a
long letter saying that some relative
or man by the same name has sudden
ly died at his hotel, and by sending
ten or fifteen dollars to pay his board
bill, his valuable effects, such as gold
watches, diamond rings, silver mount
ed pistols, fine clothing, d-., which
the dead rative left, will at once be
forwarded. Even such an absurd of
fer as this will have numerous re
sponses. But, when a circular comes
stating that for ten dollars there will
- be sent a hundred dollars worth of
"green goods," counterfeit money,
"executed so well that the best ex
perts cannot detect it," and one bites
at it, he is an unmitigated scoundrel
and swindler, totally unworthy the re
spect and confidence of any honest
man. The New York judge was ex
actly right in denouncing Perkins as
he did, for any man who would will
fully and maliciously handle or desire
to handle counterfeit money, and to
palm it off on his unsuspecting friends
and neighbors is deserving of all cen
We publish two attempts at coun
terfeit swindling, but in both cases
the design was nipped in the bud.
Every one should be shy of such cir
culars as propose to do so much for
Bo little, unless he has a surplus of
cash. Very few parties, to begin with,
attempt now a days to counterfeit
money, and we presume those few
never dare to send out a circular. The
fellows who send out the circulars
have no counterfeit money, and in
return for any money sent them, they
generally send a small box of sawdust.
One of the best answers we ever
beard of to such circulars was made
several years ago, by Col. D. J. Auld,
now postmaster at Sumter. Upon the
reception of a circular offering to send
him for ten dollars one hundred dol
lars in greenbacks, printed on plates
stolen from the U. S. treasury, and
which were so perfect that the most
expert detectives could not distinguish
them, he wrote to the party, that it
they were so anxious for him to have
the money which they said was not to
be distinguished from the genuine, to
keep ten dollars out of the hundred
they 'had for him, and to send him the
remaining ninety dollars, since accord
ing to their own statement, their
money was just as good as any he
could send them.

WOULD BE SWINDLERS.
Two South Carolinians and Two
North Carolinians Havean Expe
rience with the "Green Goods"
Men of New York.
(-Yew York Times, December 30.]
Three dapper, well-dressed sharpers, typ
ical "green goods" swindlers, and four tall,
stalwart countrymen, equally typical of their
class, attracted a good deal of attention at
the Jefferson Market Police Court yesterday
afternoon. The "green goods" men were
Benjamin Morris, alias "Deafy" Morris, of
130 East 12th street; Charles L. Monroe,
alias "Shorty" of 1020 Third avenue, and
James White, alias Norton, of '51 West 51st
street. They had been arrested for attempt
ing to swindle the countrymen, who were
Jefferson Davis Lawrence, grocer and farm
er, of Oakland Postoffice, Sumter County, S.
C.; Cornelius Price Hampton, farmer, of
Wampler Postoffice, Yancey County, N. C.,
and John Calhoun Willan, farmer, of Burns
ville, Yancey County, N. C. They all wore
large black slouch hats of the sombroro type
and store clothes. They were ungainly in
their movements and hesitating in their
speech, except Tosier, who has more the ap
pearance and manners of a prosperous coun
try merchant. Lawrence is a very peculiar
looking man, six feet in height and strong
ly built. Though only twenty-six years oli
his hair is as white as snow and his eyes
are of a pinkish hue and small and restless.
He would make a good "freak" for a Bwery
The capture of the swindlers was brought
about in this way. While Detective Rey
nolds was in front of the Grand Central Ho
tel yesterday he saw Benjamin Morris enter
the, hotel, and knowing him to be a sawdust
"steerer," he followed him and found him
in close conversation with Jefferson Davis
Lawrence in the restaurant. After Morris;
had taken his departure, Reynolds called
Lawrence into the private office of the hotel,
told him he was a police detective, and ask
ed him to explain his business with Morris.
Lawrence fought shy for a long time, and it
was only after nearly half an hour's persua
sion that he finally admitted that he had
come on to the city to buy "green goods,"
which he supposed was counterfeit money.
He had received a circular from J. B. Hester
of 138 Crosby street, couched in the usual
language, and he had entered into negotia
tion with the sender of the circular, and was
advised to come on to the city and to stop
at the Grand Central Hotel. He telegraph
ed his arrival to J. B. Hester at the Crosby
street address, and Morris called on him
and made an appointment to call for him
later and escort him to the place where the
deal was to be made. Lawrence was advis
ed by the detective to go with Morris when
he called, and to be assured that he would
be followed by detectives. Lawrence was
frightened, and asked Reynolds if they
would kill him, but the detective assured
him of ample protection.
When Morris called for his victim, Rey
nolds had secured the assistance of Detec
tives Hickey and Wooldridge, and when
Morris and the South Carolinian got aboard
a Broadway car the detectives jumped into a
cab and followed them. The "steerer" and
his victim got off at Grand street and walk
ed briskly down to Mulberry street and
thence to Hester street. As the couple turn
ed quickly into Hester street, the detectives
lost sight of them, and when the cab turned
the corner they had disappeared. The de
tectives jumped out of the cab and made a
I hurried search of the neighborhood, and in
a lager beer saloon in Hester street. near
Elizabeth they found their game. Besides
Morris and his victim they found in the
place the other "sawdust' men, Monroe and
White, and Tosier, Hampton, and Wilson.
It was a surprise to the "green goods" and
likewise to the countrymen. Monroe was
seen to slip a paper in to the outside pocket
of Hampton's overcoat, and this was subse
quently found to be a telegram sent from
this city on Wednesday, addressed to C. P.
Hampton, at Carr's Motel, Pilibert street,
Philadelphia and read as follows ; "1 will
see you in the morning. y. Morgan." It
was evidently an answer to a telegram sent
by Hampton announcing his arrival in
Philadelphia. No criminating documents
were found on the prisoners, and the coun
trvmen, with the exception of Lawrence,
denied that thiey had come to the city for the
purpose of buying counterfeit money. The
whole party were taken to police headquar
ters, and were thence marched to the Jeffer
son Market Polhee Court. There after much
consultation of law and overhauling the I
Penal Code, Justice Duffy ordered a corn
plaint to be taken against Morris under See
tion 557 of the Penal Code, for attempting 2
to swindle Lawrence. Affidavits detailing
the facts as given above were made by Law
rence and Detective Reynolds.
Mr. Goldey, who appeared- for the accus
ed man, demanded an examination, which
was set down for to-day, and Morris was
committed to prisoniin default of $1,000 bail.
Lawrence and Tosier were committed to the?
house of detention as witnesses to insure 1
their appearance at the examination. Tosier ~
denied that he had anything to do with the '
affair. He said that he had come to this
city on a visit and to see the sights. He
was walkig along in search of the Brooklyn
bridge, and he asked a man~where the bridge
was and he was immediately arrested. He
did not know the other men in the saloon.
After the Morris case had been disposed of
a complaint was made by Detective Hickev
against his companions Monroe and White,
charging them with being hab.ttial criminals,
having no lawful means of support. He
swore that he bad known the man for eight
years, and that they were thei'ves, loafers,
and ex-convicts. When cross-examined the ~
detective admitted that he in person had
never arrested either of the men, nor had he
been present when either of them had be en
convicted. His evidence was mereiy the
reputation of the men in the police depart
ment. Finding that the complaint t der
the habitual criminal Act could not be sus
tained, the magistrate chaged it to disor
derly conduct, a charge which, like charity.

Asbury H. Perkins is a tall, dignified mana
with a pleasant face and keen blue eyes. He
is a farmer, and lives in Lancaster, S. C.
He is a prominent man in the community, 1
has the confidence of every one, and when
he was appointed county commissioner si
about a year ago everybody in the neighbor-a
hood said he was the right man in the right b
Mr. Perkins came to New York during ~
Christmmas week and stopped at Earle's Ho
tel. He had just returned ',from Boston, a
where he had left $20,000 in county bonds h
in the vaults of a safe deposit company. ,,
Mr. Perkins started out for a str'oll up
Broadway during the afternoon to pass c
away several hours before the train left for y,
the South. Near Bleeker street a well-dress- ~
ed man came up from behind, hit him a n
vigorous slap on the back, grasped his hand t
shook it with great vigor, and said that he I
was heartily glad to see him. He was a lit
te astonished and did ,not think that thisa
a,s the proper way to treat a county com
missiner, but the man would not hear ofg
any rebuffs, took hold of his arm in a most b
familiar manner, and said that they would
take a walk together. On the way uptol14thi t1
street Mr. Perkins found that he had met si
an old friend from Charleston. His friendg
knew all about Lancaster, and flattered Mr. i
Perkins by telling him that since he had i l
ben moa county commissinner the financ
es of the county had been greatly improved.
The man knew so much about Mr. Perkins's
family and history that by the time they
got to 14th street the county official was
thoroughly infatuated with his new found
friend, and invit.d him to quench his thirst
in the Morton House.
While standing at the bar, Mr..Wilson, as
the man had called himself, became confid
ential and told Mr. Perking that, although
he was doing splendidly in the clothing bu
siness, yet he was making a large amount of
money in a quiet way. lie asked him if he
had ever heard of "green goods." The South
Carolinian replied in the negative. Then
Mr. Wilson explained that they were coun
terfeit bills so cleverly executed that no one
could tell the bills from genuine ones. He
demonstrated the fact by buying several
drinks at the bar and paying for them with
some of the "green goods," as he said. Mr.
Perkins, as an honest man, said that he did
not want to deal in counterfeit money, but
I1r. Wilson quieted his conscience by tell
ng him that the Government officials at
Washington yearly applied millions of dol
tars of this sort of money to their own use, I
mnd that he had as much right to the money
is they had.
Perkins thought so too, and expressed his
regret that he had not met Wilson before go
ing to Boston, as he then had about 520,000
with him and could iave gone into the bu
tness on a larger scale. However, it was
eitlEd that he was to go back to Lancaster,
;et some money, and come after the "green
;oods." This was the day after Christmas.
Since then Mr. Perkins has been in con
nunication with Wilson by letter and he
trrived here last Sunday from Lancaster.
!t Earle's Hot.:1 he was introduced to Wil
iam Rogers, who had been delegated by
Wilson to look after the business. Detec
;ives McCloskey and Muiholland have long
been on the track of Rogers, and when they
mw him with the county commissioner they
>oncluded that an "oyster" had been found
tnd kept a watch on them. Mr. Perkins
aad brought with him $400 for which he
as to get $4,000 in "green goods." He bad
52S0 in silver dollars, and Rodgers "kicked"
it this and said that some of them might be
ad. So a messenger was called and the sil
ver was taken to Wall street and exchanged
'or bills. Mr. Perkins got $4,000 of "green
roods" in three packages of $10. $5, and $1
ills, and Mr. Rodgers got $400 in good
noney. The business was settled yesterday
norning and Mr. Rotlgers and Mr. Perkins
eft the hotel arm in arm. The county com
nissioner carried a new bag containing tie
reen goods. They took a car to the Do.s
rosses Street Ferry and were just going
hrough the ferry gate when McCloskey and
lulholland seized them. Mr. Rodgers got
>ut a big pistol, but it was knocked to the
sie-walk and one chamber exploded. He
was quickly subdued and was taken to po
ice headquarters with the county comins
The latter protested against the arrest of
is friend Rodgers. Inspector Byrnes told
VIr. Perkins that he had been swindled, and
Mr. Perkins denied it. The inspector open
td the satchel, took out the packages of
noney, broke the little rubber bands, and
,reen paper with no marks on it fell upon
"Well, I'll be goldarned," exclaimed Mr.
Perkins, "if thet doant beat anythin' I ever
reed." This was the first idea that he got
>f the swindle, and he said that he hoped
hat it would not get into the .papers. The
;reen paper packages were covered by good
noney, there being two $10, two $5, and two
;1, in all making $32. In order that Mr.
?erkins would not have to break the pack
ges before leaving the city, Mr. Rodgers
rave him a $15-to buy a railroad ticket home.
he county commissioner was sent to the
louse of Detention and the swindler was
ocked up at headquarters and will be taken
o the Jefferson Market Court this morning.
Subsequently we learn from the New York
World of a later date that Perkins made com
>laint against Rodgers before Justice Weide
f the New York Tombs Court, charging
tim with larceny. Rodgers was discharged,
he justice saying to Perkins that he could
tot believe him on oath. "Any man," said
he magistrate, "base enough to come here
'or the purpose of buying counterfeit money
o take homue and pass upon nnsuspecting
eighbors, is unworthy of any credence
vhatever." When Perkins, through his at
orney, applied to the Toombs Court for an
rder requiring the property clerk, in whose
Lnds Perkins's $400 had been placed by
he detectives who took it from Rodgers, to
eturn thte money to him, the justice said to
~erkins : "Your testimony in this cotirt, in
rhich you stasted that you gave $400 for
4,000 of what you believed to be good
aoney, and not counterfeit, shows you to be
n unmitigated scoundrel, and you have no
ight in this court. I decline to give you
n order for the $400. If the Property Clerk
rill give it to you he may do so. Clear out!
leave my office !" Hearing this Roger's at
rney made a rush for the Property Clerk's
dfice, and placed a lien on the money in
vor of his client. Since then Perkinss
swyer has brought suit against the Proper'
y Clerk, to recover the $400 and $100 dam
Perkins's IRome Reputation.
