grtab" department store, the insurance
companies were informed that it was a
cate of arson and asked to pay $20,OOQ for
evidence that would convict the guilty, it
being- intimated that the company was
the real culprit. Messrs. Siegel, Cooper &
Co. immediately caused the arrest of the
persons who bad approached the insur
ant e men, and preferred the charges of
arsin and blackmail against them. A
detective was put on the track and from
the developments there seems little doubt
that Thomas Higgins fired the building
am! that his cu-conspirat ors were William
Da! ton, -and one Cunningham. The
sch-.-me was carefully hatched and the
plan was to fire the building and then
swear away the liberty of members of the
company "for a consideration."
One of the Crooks Confesses.
The evidence upon which this )-a,itement
is based is the confession of William Dal
ton. He directly charges Higgins with
the crime, and says that the plot was per
fected at several meetings of the conspira
tors before and after the fire. They called
themselves the ''Circle of Six," and at the
Jattr meetings a story was agreed upon
which each man couimittod to memory in
ord'-r that they might corroborate etch
oth-r. It was arrauged to swear to the
movements of Mr. siegel and certa-n
trusted employes so as to present a strong
circ-imstantial case against them, and it
was through the efforts of the detective
George Washington, a colored secret serv
ice man, aud a reporter named Perkins,
wbx got into the "Circle'' that the plot was
not successful in a measure, at les.st. The
met. were before Justice tilennon yester
day. aud it was testifh'd by Washington
that the oath of the "Circle" bound each
man to secrecy at. the forfeit of his life.
The case was continued.

"The insurgents have leen cnt off from

It is expe'eted that the defeat of the in

A CONVICT MAKES A CONFESSION
shewing How the Concern IV as Looted
and the Villainy Kept from the Knowl

Crooked Operations in Which tOOO.
OOO Wa Involved How the Shortages
of President Lucas were Covered I'p.
Philadelphia, Aug. 2S. Charles Law
rence, the assistant cashier of the Key
stone National bank, who is undergoing a
sentence of i-even years, has made a full
confession. Since his confinement in the
penitentiary the disgraced official has con
cluded that it was his duty to tell all he
knew and how the frauds were perpe
trated in the Keystone bank. The letter is
addressed to ex-Bank Examinor Drew,
and is as follows;
Telling How It Was Done.
"DEAR Sirt: I beg to submit to you the
following circumstances as to the manner
in which you, as national bank examiner,
was deceived in your examination of the
Keystone National bank. In the first
place, permit me to say that, in general,
every mean:, possible were used to both
swell the assets of the hank and to dimin
ish its liabilities. There was no regular
method adopted, but at one time some
means were resorted to, at other timts
some other plan suggested itself. I caa,
therefore, only tell you in a general way
of the various things done to deceive you,
without specifying any particular time in
which the particular falsification was
They Ctot Things Heady for Drew.
'First, as to the individual ledgers.
These came within the scope of my own
knowledge, and are facts with which I am
personally acquainted. As to the other
departments my knowledge- comes from
what I have seen and heard, and, there
fore, I am about to draw pretty strong in
ferences. The individual ledgers were al
tered at least twice every year about the
time you were looked for. This was done
by me since 1SS0, and the methods pur
sued were various. Sometimes whole
pages were abstracted. Mostly false bal
ances were . made by altering the pencil
figures. Lirge balances were decreased
and overdrafts wiped out.
Kequired Frequeut Alterations.
"Sometimes false credits were posted to
an overdrawn account, so that your atten
tion would not be drawn to the Ifuir
more minutely by an overdrawn account,
when you n..ght possibly see something
else to excite your suspicion. Sometimes
false cheeks were posted to an account hav
ing a large balauce, so as to reduced lia
bilities. This.- you can readily see, re
quired alteritions and re-alterations to a
very large extent, because if a check had
been posted falsely to an account and then
that party drew on the account in the reg
ular course of business you will see that
it necessitated a rearrangement of his ac
count aud a urrespouaing change in some
Covering the Stealing-a of Lncas.
This wasdone to the extent of probably
Iofi0,u00 more or less I cannot tell any
earer than that. Now I know that there
were memo, auda carried as cash which
represented the amount Mr. Lucas owed
the cash diawer. This was replaced at
the time of your examination by real cash,
which was temporarily borrowed, some
times by means of a due bill taken from
the back of the due bill book, sometimes
by means of a certi-ficate of deposit or by
the preskleD. obtaining a loan.
Swelling the Itills Discounted.
"The bills discounted were swelled by
the introduction of fictitious notes. These
were intended both to swell the assets,
and lo take the place of other bills dis
counted, which, it was thought, liest nut
to K t you soo as it might excite jour sus
picion aud put JoU nil a uijid inquisitive
examination. This, I litlieve, gives you a
general ida of the various meth!? pur
sued. Chakles Lawuesi'E."
