non Booth, president of A. Booth Ac
Company, the so-called fish trust,
which went into the hands of a re-,
ceiver last September, and F. R. Roh- J
bins, former assistant treasurer of
the company, were both indicted here j
They, -with others to the grand
jury unknown," are charged with en?
tering into a conspiracy by means
of which they secured "wilfully mali?
ciously, feloniously, etc," the sum of ,
$300.')On from the Continental Na?
tional Bank of Chicago. |
? The two men are jointly indicted
in one true bill which contains only
three counts, none of them differing
substantially. j
News of the grand Jury's act ion
created a sensation in Chicago.
Inherited Big Business.
W. vernon Booth inherited from his
father what is said to hare been the
largest fishing .business in the world.
The eider Booth was a hard working
business man. who to hia last day,
would dean a fish or handle a sall
? boat with-any of Ms isiass/n His
son. William Vernon. upo*** tils suc?
cession to power, was one of the hest
known polo players in the country,
and was socially prominent not only
in Chicago, but in the East.
Mr. Booth frequently entrusted the
management of the business to his
staff, apparently believing in common
with the public that the big firm was
safe from financial difficulties. He
was a member of the Chicago Athlet?
ics, the Chicago Yacht, the Chicago
Golf Onwenzia and Union League
clubs, and news of the receivership
last September was entirely a sur?
prise to the public.
Liabilitiea Were Over $6,000.000.
The liabilities sere estimated at over
$$,090.000, but 'he assets, at first
supposed to be sufficient dwindled
steadily as the investigation proceed?
ed and have unofficially been esti?
mated as low as $3,000,009.
Sensational testimony was adduced
from F. R- Robbies, who was indict?
ed with Mr. Booth today.
The witness told a stsrtling story
of raise statements presented to. the
banks to bolster up th? tottering
credit of the firm.
These stat'-monts. by redveing th?
fhtnres showing liabilities and iiwfrcas
ins the assets. Mr. Bobbins said were
$2.flno.Ortn away from the true con?
dition of affairs.
Basis of Indictments.
Statements presented to lh<- Conti?
nental National Bank was the basis
of today's indictments.
Mr. Bobbins sa*d 'hat when Mr.
Booth learned that the statement had
been made to the banks and that i'
was false he insisted that the hanks
