close to t5o0,l00 have beeu issued
from St .Joseph In the last six months
and many banks and trust companies

forgeries wa made ten days ago by a

The bills of lading bad been sent to

not satisfied. Judge O. M. Spencer,
general solicitor of the Burlington,
"Further Investigation revealed oth
er forgeries, and Friday Mr. Herroun
made a statement to me In which he
confessed to forging 1T0 bill of lad

forgeries he said he had received
1137,000. Later, I understand, he con
fessed to other attorneys that the for
geries would aggregate $lo0.00 and
possibly more. Mr. Harrounn said he
and his brother had lost a quarter of
a million dollars on tbe stock market
In Chicago two years ago, and the loss
of this Urge sum bad crippled him so
badly tbat he bad resorted to these
forgeries In order to recoup hi de

this practice for several month."
