HOW THE JOB WAS DONE.
A Counterfeiter's Story of Work in the
Bureau or Engraving' and Printing.
" If you want to see a man who can fell
you about sjme of the crooked business
that has been done in the Bureau of Engraving
and Printing I can show you one,"
said a detective to a Sun reporter yester
day. Then he led the way to a basement
in a lodging-house on the East side, amid
a cluster of tenements and saloons. A
feeble lamp lighted the interior. Sitting
by an old table was a man who once had
been handsome. He was tall, well built
and had a long, bushy beard. His eyes
were blue, his nose was rather large, but
well formed. His complexion was fair.
His voice was smooth, and he had the air
of a man who had seen better days. Assured
by the detective that he would not
be betrayed, the man said :
" I have seen the time when I did not
mind going out to spend $500 in a night.
That was when we did the greatest job of
putting out counterfeit money that was
ever done in this country, and when we
worked tiie Bureau of Engraving and
Printing. There was lots of money put up
and it was a long job, but we worked it
successfully. It took us 'over a year, and
we spent $10,000 on it.
" Hank Hall, Josh Miller and Peter
Smith, were the men who put the job up.
Their plan was to get some of theuenuine
work out of the Bureau of Engraving and
Printing. Iliis was in 1SG6. They got
Minnie Langdon, her husband, Ned Lang-don,
and her father-in-law to go to work
in the Bureau. The Langdonswere
and the plan was to get them to
steal lead impressions of the genuine
plates of the seven-thirty Treasury notes
and other Government plates. They work
ed a year in the Bureau, and took out
parts of the work at various times. These
lead impressions were used as a matrix
from which to make electrotvpe plates.
"I recollect well the day when Minnie
L. n rdon brought the lead impressions of
the seven-thirties and compound interest
notes to New York. She gave them to me
and I gave her $2,500 cash. We had been
supplying her and her relatives with
money all the time they were at work in
the Bureau. After we got the lead impression
it took three or four months to
get the plates ready, but when they were
done the notes printed from them were as
good as the genuine. They were, in fact,
printed from copies of the genuine plates.
" The very first day the counterfeit was
issued we put out $500,000 of them in the
City of New York alone. We found no
difliculty in passing them anywhere.
Banks, bankers, brokers, jewelers, storekeepers,
everybodyto' whom they were
offered took them without suspicion. The
same operation was repeated e'sewhero.
The whole thing was done very quickly,
and the country was flooded with
ot the counterfeit money before it was
discovered. Some of the biggest bankers
in New York, among others Jay Cooke
and Fisk & Hatch, took them unsuspectingly.
It was three days before the counterfeit
was detected. Then there was
" The way the thing came out was by the
capture of Chick' Treat in the oil regions
in the act of passing some of the money.
Hank Hall and some of the others were-with
him. Then Col. Win. P. Wood, Chief
of the Secret Service Department, discovered
the plot, traced out the gang, and
arrested four of us, including the Langdons
" The bankers had passed some of tho
money on the Treasury Department, and
the counterfeit was so good that the Government
officers did not detect it until
long after the bankers had got their money.
There was a big lawsuit,"and a long trial
grew out of this counterfeit. The bankers
refused to refund and insisted that the
notes were genuine. They brought experts
to swear that they had worked in
the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and
knew the work to be genuine. The bankers
made a hard fight of it, but they were
beaten, and had to refund, I think," about
$S0,000. This was saved to the Government
by the efForts of Colonel Wood.
" How is it that I am not afraid to tell
the story? Well,, you may stiy this, that
I knew too much about how the work was
got out of the Bureau for the Government
to be very hard on me- They were glad
to let up on me very easy. Tho job was a
success from beginning to the end, and
paid us well for all the trouble we had in
getting it through. Most of the gang got
off with very little punishment. Minnie
Langdon tunrned State's evidence. Her
husband died not long after he got his
share of the money. The old man Langdon
was, I believe, at work in the Bureau
of Engraving and Printing when he was
Bennett, an Iowa farmer, wrs
accused of criminally obtaining money by
contracting to deliver grain which he did
not possess. He protested that he knew
nothing whatever about the matter, but
the evidence against him convinced a jury,
and, a year ago, he was sentenced to three
years in the penitentiary. The man who
personated Bennett has now been detected
and the convict's innocence is made clear.
The governor has pardoned him, and will
ask the legislature to vote him $5,000, besides
a parchment on which the facts in
the case are officially inscribed.
