Forger Moore Tells About His Sys
tematic Crime.
Had to Keep Margins Good Wiih
His Brokers.
NEW YORK. June 14.?Albert 3. Moore,
whose forgeries, disclosed yesterday, star
tled some of the best banks in this city,
has made confession of his wrong doing.
"1 first forged three years ago," he told
a reporter today. **I was then a bookkeeper
for Inman, Swann & Co., for whom I had
worked for fourteen years. I had been
speculating in the market and was long
on cotton. Late one evening my broker
came to me and told me that I would have
to put up more margin. He was in deep
water an 1 my failure to keep the contract
I had with him would necessitate his fail
ure. I had no money, but told him I would
give him the needed amount. In an unfortu
nate moment I decided that I could raise
the money on bad paper. I expected to real
ize my fortune and take back the note. I
made a note with a forged indorsement
and sold it to the bank. Just the amount
I got I do not know.
??Things went bad with me. I was on the
wrong sld^ of the market, and simply got
deeper and deeper. I had to keep on sell
ing bad paper to raise money to keep my
self uo. But all the time things got worse
and worse, until now I am here. My ar
rest was not unexpected. I Knew two days
ago that I was to be arrested, and made no
efTort to escape."
"What is the amount of your forgeries?
was asked.
"I have a memorandum of all the paper 1
passed, and gave it to the police. It i3 re
porttd that the aggregate is $100,000, but
that is not correct. I am positive that
there was not over $75,000. I can say now
that I sold n-> paper out of town?not a
cent's worth." ^ ,
Moore denied that he .vas or had been a
Sunday school superintendent. He said he
had merely been the secretary of the Sun
day school of the Collegiate Dutch Reform
ed Church.
The order appointing Robert T. Green
and Thomas D. Day receivers for the Last
River Silk Company, of which Moore was
treasurer and principal owner, was filed
today in the county clerK's office. A depu
ty sherifT served copies of the attachment
obtained by the Bank of America and the
Union National Bank on John M. Enke,
Wm. Gllchcock & Co., Vletar & Achclis,
Kahn & Kahn and Wm. H. Graef & Co.
Forced From a Mail Car by a Mniikoil
GALVESTON, Tex., June 14.?The mall

Northern, arrived at Palestine last night
without a postal clerk. A masked man
crawled Into the car Just after leaving
Tucker. and at the point of a revolver de
manded the safe keys. When told he was
not in the express car he then demanded
the registered mail keys. Upon their sur
render he ordered the clerk to jump out.
Clerk Orrin Davis was badly bruised by the
Jump. Eight registered packages are known
to have been tsiken.

Still another airing of the troubles of
Mr. and Mm. Thos. G. Hoover and Mr. and
Mrs. James E. Burroughs were given to
day when Mr. Burroughs and Mrs. Hoover
filed replications in the suits for divorce
instituted by them several days ago.
Tne suit for divorce, it will be remem
beied, followed a trial in the Police Court,
where Mr. Burroughs was charged with
assaulting Mr. Hoover, because, as Mr.
Burroughs alleged, of Mr. Hoover's Im
proper conduct with Mrs. Burroughs.
Judge Miller dismissed the case, whereupon
Mrs. Hoov?r petitioned for divorce, charg
ing her husband with infidelity 'with Mrs.
Burroughs, and in his petition for divorce
Mr. Burroughs charged his wife with adul
tery with Mr. Hoover.
Both Mrs. Burroughs and Mr. Hoover filed
an answer in the respective cases, denying
the charges made against them and assert
ing that they had been made the objects
of a conspiracy entered into'-between Mrs.
Hcover and Mr. Burroughs and private de
tectives. Mrs. Burrougns, in turn, charged
her husband with cruelty and non-support,
nnd also with making improper propositions
to a Miss Lyda Crawford.
She also charged him with selling good3
purchased from a Mr. Grogan before he
had paid for them. In his reply today Mr.
Burroughs emphatically denies each
charge, and tiles statements signed by Miss
Crawford and Mr. Grogan in support of
his derial of his wife's allegations.
In her reply Mrs. Hoover makes denial
of the charges against her.
She says she did not enter into any con

NEW YORK. June 14.?There was a

Department Clerks Arrested for Vio
lating: the Edinnnd? Aet.
The first case under the Edmunds law
brought against persons in the government
employ was in Judge Miller's' coutt today,
but the parties charged did not appear, and
their collaterals were forfeited. The par
ties whose names appeared on the paper
charging the offense of fornication are
George Maxwell, said to be an examiner in
the patent office, and Annie Fynan, who
does clerical work in the mail-bag repair
shop on C street. William H. Main of 417
CJ street northwest made complaint to ttie
officers last week, as published in The Star
at the time. When the prosecuting attorney
heard the evidence in the case he conclud
ed that he did not have proof enough to
warrant his taking the case into court, and
that an investigation was needed before an
arrest could be made, and the parties tried.
Detective Proctor at once proceeded to
make an investigation. He was assisted by
Detectives Rhodes and Gallaher. They vis
ited the house three mornings this week to
note the condition of the communicating
rooms occupied, and each time, according
to their report, only one bed showed evi
dence of having been occupied.
A Midnlftlit Arre?t.
j Yesterday Mr. Main swore out a warrant
for the couple, and last night Detectives
Proctor and Gallaher went to he house and
made the arrests. On their visits to the
houSe one or more of the officers, it is
said, climbed on the roof, from where they
could see through the window into the
room. It was after 11 o'clock last night
when the two detectives went to the room
and opened the (Toor with a duplicate key.
They state that the couple were guilty,
sleeping side by side.
When they reached the police station
Maxwell was unable at first to leave col
lateral for the appearance of Miss Fynan
and himself. Fortunately for him he found
some one willing and able to cash a check
for him. He then left $20 for himself.while
the woman was released on $13 collateral.
Maxwell gave his age as twenty-two
years, while Miss Fynan said she was
nineteen. They have no relatives here, so
it is said, and have known each other for
some time. Maxwell, it is said, was prom
inent in church and mission work, and had
many friends in religious circles.
Did Xot Appear in Conrt,
Further than the facts stated, the offi
cers had no proof against the couple. A
charge brought against a young couple
found under similar circumstances, was
dismissed by Judge Miller a few days ago.
When the case of Maxwell and Miss
Fynan was oa^ed for trial today they fail
ed to appear, and their collaterals were

termarriage between the Indians and the

part in territorial afTairs unless they are

doubtless, this fact has played a part in

Staff Correspondence of The Evening Star.
? Not even the most rigid disciplinarian
could have had any fault to find with the
behavior in camp last night. Of course,
there were a few Instances of ovej-jublia
tlon, but the cases were so few as to be
hardly worth mentioning. The peace of the
camp was practically unbroken. The num
ber of prisoners was extremely small, and
taken as a whole the state of affairs was
phenomenally good. Mention of guard duty
calls to mind a little incident that occurred
yesterday evening in which Maj. Mclntire.
Maj. Tierney and Quartermaster Sergeant
ltiggs of the general non-commissioned
staff figured to some extent. The two first
named officers noticed a little bunch of
men standing in the vicinity of a structure
which Maj. Tierney supposed was reserved
for visitors of the fair sex. Sergeant lliggs
was dispatched to disperse the assemblage j
and had commenced to deliver an oration I
on the impropriety of assembling at that
particular point when he was halted by a
sentry, who informed him that the build
ing in question had been seized upon by the
first regiment for a guard house, upon the
receipt of which information the sergeant j
jind the two majors retreated without hav
ing anything more to say and without hav
ing scattered the soldiers on duty or re
leased the prisoners.

Officers' drills commenced this morning
at 11:30 in the fort, under the direction
of Major Geo. H. Harries, inspector gen
eral of rifle practice. Instruction was
given ail the line officers present m aiming
ard sighting?a branch of practical mili
tary education with which only a small I
number of the officers are at all familiar.
The assistant instructors were Captain
James E. Bell, inspector of rifle practice, I
second regiment; Lieutenant Charles Kbert,
I.R.P., first battalion; Lieutenant F. J.
Cardoio. I.R.P., first separate battalion;
Lieutenant (1. C. Shaw, I.K.P., flfth bat
talion. and Lieutenant John A. Kirk. I.R.
P., provisional battalion. In the ordinary I
ccurse of events Lieutenant T. S. King,
I.R.P., second battalion, would also have I
beefi present, but the Illness of his child
called him to the city last night, and he
is not expected to return until this after
noon. Twice a day?from 11:30 and from
4:1"> to 3:15? this instruction In aiming,
sighting and position drills will be given
to officers until it seems evident that the I
seed has been so planted as to make ltl
probable that a crop will spring up in the"!
commands of the ofllcei*s who are being
and are to be instructed.
The regimental and battalion Inspectors
will follow the course of instruction I
through to the companies. After Satur- J
day the department of rifle practice will
be strengthened by the addition of Lieut.
Sahin, I. R. p., fourth battalion, who is
for the present doing excellently well as
acting Quartermaster of his battalio'i.
Lieut. Frank Gibson. I. R. P.. third bat- j
tailor., is also engaged in feeding the com- I
mand to which he belongs, he having de- I
veloped great ability as a commissary offi- {
cer. all of which goes to show that the de
partment of rifle practice can do duty In a
broader field than that which is bounded
by Blount's small-arms firing regulations.

so that he mav attend to his legitimate j
duties, the third battalion will be Instruct- I

Xo Crumbling at the Commlmar)'.
At prior encampments of the brigade I
there has invariably been steady growling
at the commissary, but in spite of the fact
that things are only Just down to a satis
factory working basls.the first kick against
the feeding arrangements has yet to be
registered. Already it is evident that the
transferring of responsibility from the
brigade commissary to the battalion offi- I
cers is one of the best changes that could
P03sibly have been made, and the experi
ence even of a single day makes It certain
that the District National Guard will never
return to the old and unsatisfactory way
of dding things, that at the time when
they were done appeared to be the only
thing that could be done. The methods
now in vogue are unexceptionally good,
and there does not seem to be any reason
why tTie smoothness of the Issuing, cook
ing and serving arrangements should be
disturbed at any time durftig the period of
the encampment. Yesterday there was a
trilie of discomfort because some of the
mess tents were missing.
And the Hand Played.
Music by the entile band was a pleasant
feature that helped wonderfully last night
in relieving any depression that might
easily have been consequent upon the far
from exhilarating style of weather which
afflicted Camp Washington during the first
few hours of existence here. It was good
music, too; very much better than anybody
had any right to expect, under the circum
stances. It was nearly 8 o'clock before the
master mechanic was notified that In con
sequence of the excessive dampness of the
grass some sort of a band platform would
be needed, with posts around It, on which
to iiang a sufficient number of gasoline
lamps to render playing by ear and by
main strength unnecessary. At 8:.H> the
platform and posts and lamps were in
place, and a .ew minutes later the first
band concert commenced, with Moses' over
ture of national airs, "America." Then
followed a delightful rendition of "Mana
na," Missud's beautiful Chilean dance, and
after it came Herman's "Angel's Dream"
Waltz. Campagna's Washington Light In
fantry March was next in order, and was
received with great enthusiasm by a num
ber of the members of that ancient and
honorable organization, who stood around
enjoying the treat. The program concluded
with De Witt's "Midway Plaisanee." A
great many pleasant things were said about
Bandmaster Schroeder's harmonious aggre
gation, and as the band concert is to b? an
every evening feature, there will be ample
opportunity for complimenting the band
upon its really admirable work. A more
permanent band platform will be erected
today around the llakstaff.and better effects
may be looked for from the greater eleva
tloji of the musicians.
Yesterday's rain, while it made it rather
dreary for those doing guard duty, and
effectively put a damper on -the plan to
have dress parade, did not seriously Incom
mode the camp, and. although the wind
came In hard gusts during the afternoon's
storm, none of the tents were blown over
so well had the morning's work been done'
It had cleared sufficiently by evening to
give opportunity for the band to show its
skill, and. though there were showers
throughout the night, the sun rose clear
and bright, and by this evening the camp
will be almost thoroughly dry.
Guard mount this morning was a reason
ably satisfactory ceremony. It was put up
by company B, sixth battalion, and Lieut.
Otto Simonson, who commands the com
pany in camp. Is therefore officer of the
day; Lieut. 'Udell is commander of the
guard. Lieut. Helner of the fourth artil
lery is watching all matters pertaining to
guaid duty in a courteously keen manner
and will be very much disappointed if some
of the work done during the coming week
is less t-ian first class.
Young as the camp Is. there are at least
two upcak-easiea operating within range.
-i?t?th?,ch?nces are against anything like

Speculators Inclined to Take Their
Manhattan Was the Feature of
the Day.
Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
NEW YORK, June 14.?Speculation was
scmewhat Irregular during the first hour
this morning as the result'of lower prices
in London and a disposition to postpone
activity in the stocks in which the week's
improvement has been most reflected. As
usual at the end of the week, the trading
element was inclined to take profits, ord
concessions due to this cause were notice
able in all parts of the list. The volume of
business in railway shares reflected some
falling off, but the main features of the
situation were unchanged.
The advance in the grangers has result
ed In more cautious operations, as many
conservative traders incline to the belief
that all the favorable features of the Im
mediate outlook have been fully discount
ed. While this may be true at the moment,
it is probable that future advices from the
west will inspire renewed confidence in the
grain-carrying roads.
Manhattan was the feature of the day,
i opening up 1-S per cent higher than last
j night's closing, ex the regular quarterly
| dividend of V/j per cent. This sharp re
I covery of its dividend was due to rumors
that the Westinghouse Electric Company
had been given the contract to equip the
road electrically. The subsequent denial of
the rumors by a prominent director of the
Manhattan-Company resulted in a decline
of 2 per cent from first prices.
Negotiations are pending looking to the
substitution of electricity for steam, but
| all statements as to the date of such sub
stitution and the warding of the contract
are at present premature. Western Union
was in good demand up to 94 1-S, a gain of
j 5-8 per cent from opening figures.
The recent report of earnings made by
this company is encouraging a revival of
investment buying.
The securities of the Southern railroad,
while barely steady in today's mark?t, have
been liberally bought during the last lew
days by prom'nent inside interests. This
company has about completed certain im
portant traffic arrangements with nearby
lines, the announcement of which is relied
upon to advance prices.
Chicago Gas was In good demand at a
gain of 1 per cent, rumors relative to the
possible passing of the consolidation bill
over the governor's veto and the activity
of a bull pool in the property being re- i
sponsible for the strength.
Distillers was sold down on yesterday's
decision declaring the trust illegal, but
owing to the wide difference of construc- j
tion it is impossible to determine just what
the ultimate effect of this decision will be.
The market for foreign exchange rules |
firm on a small volume of business. The
scarcity of all classes of commercial bills
necessitates sales by the syndicate banks
whenever the demand for drawings in
creases. The trading of the last hour was
dull and confined largely to the room.
Prices were steady during the greater part
of this period, notwithstanding efforts to
force a reaction in the interest of would-be
