A GREAT FORGER.

New Yobk, Not. 17. Albert IL
Smith, tho junior partner In tho broker
age firm of Miller, Robinson & Smith at
Wl Broadway, la prisoner at police
headquarters, charged wil'h over ermatr
forgeries, aggregating t.'WO, 000. femltb
has acknowledged bis crime to Inspect
or liyrnos and has turned over all his
property to W. A. Watson for the bene
fit of hlu creditors.
The discoveries of the forgeries, which
cover a period of six years, were acci
dentally made by a stock clerk in tha
employ of the firm.
In his confession Smith says ha used
tho money obtained by his forgeries to
reimburse customers of the firm who
had lost money on his suggestions. lie
fore his arrest he made a clean breast of
his doings to his associates in the firm.
Although the case Is not yet complete
Inspector liyrnes, awaro of the excited
condition of the money market, deter
mined to tuako public the real facts of
Smith's method was something akin
to that ot Iiodnll, tho clerk ot the firm
of SMpman, Choato & Laroquo, who
was sent to prison for a long term re
cently. Tho loss resulting will fall
upon tho firm, which had been in ex
istence since 172, and which had buon
bold in tho hlghost repute.
About six years ago Smith became
embarrassed and to save himself adopted
the schemo which led to bis downfall.
Ho would buy seven, eight or nino
shares of first class stock and by adding
a cipher raiso tho ordor to seventy,
eighty or ninety shares. Those ho de
posited with the firm as a private ac
count and thus mado bis partners ro-
sponsib'o. The shares were in tho course
of time hypothecated with tho Union
Trust Company, United States Trust
Company, Centrul Trust Company,
Chemical Rank, Phienlx Rank, Me
chanics Rank, Fourth National Rank,
Nassau Rank of lirooklyn and Russell
Sage, until the amounts secured reached
between f 20, 000 and .10,000 in each case.
The forgeries might havo continued
Indefinitely if Stock Clerk W. A. Wat
son had not discovered that the figures
In a certificate turned In by Smith had
been raised. An investigation followed
and showed that Smith had purchased
butsoven shares instead of seventy, as
appeared on tho face of tho certificate.
'J' his led to an overhauling of the books
of the firm and then all came to light

Tho Raring Hros.' embarrassment was
due to the action of the Russian Gov

during the summer, suddenly withdrew

BLACK BOB SQUATTERS.
A Hill riled In th. Circuit Court to llav
Toi'KK a, Kan.. Nor. 15. The United
States District Attorney of Kansas, un
der Instructions from Attorney-General
Miller, has just filed a bill in equity in
the Circuit Court of the Uulted Ktatos
atTopeka, on behalf of the lllack Hob
band of Shawnee Indians and against,
the settlers who have squatted on tho
lllack liob reservation in Johnson
County and tbe speculators who hold
Unapproved deeds from the Indians.
The bill alleges that the deeds of the
speculators were obtained by fraud and
demands that they bo canceled. The
bill prays that tbe settlers be ejected
and that they be bold to account to the
Indians for the rents and prollts of tho
land for the last twenty years. This
suit Involves about 30,000 acres of tha
best land In Johnson County, which
bavo been occupied by squatters ever
since tho Indians were driven otl by
Quantrell and bis men In 1301
The settlers have absolutely no title
save the possession, which they bavo
been well satisfied to enjoy without any
liability to pay taxes. Great excite
ment prevails among the people on the
reservation over the prospects of belnjr
ejected, losing the improvements which t
they have placed thero, and being
mulcted for rents and profits besides.
They have employed attorneys, and
will make a bitter fight The specula
tors who hold unapproved deeds havo
never boon In possession, having been
kept out by the squatters. Might has
been right on tue reservation for a long
time, and for years it has furnished the
courtB of Johnson County the largesti
proportion of their criminal business.
Tho local attorney appointed by Attorney-General
Miller to look after tho In-
tercsts of tbe Indians says that every
prayer of tho bill will be insisted upon.
