A $100,000 Forger Arrested at Chicago—
Carious Hiding Places for HiH Pluuaer—
Money Speut ou Wine and Worn* a.
Chicago, Jan. 3.—A belated 6tory of a
forgery to a very largo amount, with the
flight and arrest was made public this
evening by the Pinkerton Detective agency.
Abo^; Christmas time the agency received
a telegram from Sperry & Barnes, New
York and New Haven, the American agents
of the large Liverpool Commission house,
Bamford Bros, that their exchange clerk,
E. H. Eobbe, had absconded, after
forging and converting to his
own nee $100,000 in exchange.
Tha agency at once went to work cpoa
the case and soon discovered Eobbe here
in the company of a man named Jno. R.
Vanarsdale, and that they were spending
money very freely. While the case was
being worked up Vanarsdale returned to
New York, where hs was arrested on last
Friday. Kobbe was arrested in a house of
iil repute, with one of the inmato3 with
whom he had become enamored, and was
on the point of starting for Mexico. $400
in money was found in hio possession, and
$1,200 worth of fure and lilks, which he
h-ui lavished on the woman was also taken
possession of. It was found that Kobbe
spent $2 ; 500 here, and Vanaredale $2,000.
It appears he forged bills of exchange on
Bamford Bros , which he readily disposed
of to Jes -up, Fatten & Co., being recog
nized as the exchange clerk »f the firm,
aud he had the checks made
payable to con personal order,
instead of that of the firm. He opened
an account with another bank and collect
ed the amoa&t of Jessnp, Patten & Co.'s
checks, and invested the money in govern
ment bonds and absconded. Pinkerton
says ha confessed that his gains were fully
$100,000. He was taken to New York the
same day he was arrested, a>d last Sunday
took tha detective to the upper part of New
York,where they recovered from a cistern,
enoased in a hermetically sealed drawpipe,
and wrapped in oil silk,
government bonds to the amount
amount of $20,000, Going thence to Brook
lyn, another pleoe of drain yielded $25,
--000. It is not known here whether any
more of the money has been recovered.
Kobbe is well cormeeted.and once occupied
a responsible position with the Inman line,
and his brother is now chief clerk of that

was interested in land grants in this state;
onld not say who represented him; there

said, was on record and that no taxes had
been assessed or paid on the mortgage
