out by Gus D. Golding, 3411 Ogden
avenue, a roofing contractor. Kriebel
gave his age as 43 and Winnetka as
his home. Bond was furnished by
Leonard H. Roach, a Winnetka real
estate dealer.
Charges "Con" Game
Attorney .Sidney Baumburger, ap
pearing for Golding, charged Kriebel
had been guilty of a confidence game
in taking $1,236 from Golding and
failing to fulfill promises made at the
time.
Kriebel was summoned before
Referee in Bankruptcy Wean Tuesday
afternoon to testify in the bankrupt
C3 proceedings against the firm. Ac
cording to W. W. "Wheclock, receiver
assets are few and hard to find.
Edward Tilden, investment banker,
and son of Wflliamm A. Tilden, also
was called to testify. It is said that
Kriebel conducted many transactions
through Mr. Tilden's firm.
Hints of concealed assets were
heard at the hearing and the rumors
will be investigated.
Used Other Firm's Name
Thomas W. Luebker, secretary and
treasurer of the firm, was called to
Mr. Wean's offices as a witness. He
stated that Kriebel & Co. carried ac
counts with other firms under the
name of T. W. Luebker & Co.
"Why. that name?" he was asked.
"Because Kriebel & Co. did -not
have a good name among some of
the other firms," he answered.
Postal inspectors began a thorough
investigation of the firm. They had
been informed there is a possibility it
used the mails to defraud, they said.
Stock Not Purchased
Patrons say that they bought stock
on the part payment plan, paying 20
per cent, and following with monthly
payments. They received dividends,
but investigators say that Kriebel &
Co. did not really purchase the stock
ordered. According to the govern
ment authorities, this constitutes a
fraud. It is further charged that the
firm knew it was insolvent six months
before bankruptcy proceedings were
instituted,, but continued to receive
payments from its patrons through
the mails.
Thousands of Investors
It is estimated there are thousands
of cases where people invested their
savings with Kriebel Co., and Re
ceiver W. W. Wheelock' can find no
Stock in the assets of the firm.
Mr. Franklin V. Babh was the lead
Ins colored man representing Kriebel
& Co. on the South Side. He never
advertised to the extent of one penny
in the columns of this" newspaper but
oa the other hand he placed all of his
advertising" in the columns of the
greatest weekly newspaper in the
world- which enabled Krkbel & Co,
to skin the short-sighted colored peo
ple -oat of hundreds of thousands of
dollars. -Editor.
JUDGE SHERIDAN E. FRY, PRESIDING
OVER THE SMALL CLAIMS
BRANCH OF THE MUNICIPAL
COURT OF CHICAGO; IN 1914 EN
TERED UP JUDGMENT FOR TWENTY-FIVE
DOLLARS AND COST IN
FAVOR OF JULIUS F. TAYLOR,
AND AGAINST FORMER ALDER
MAN JOSEPH A. SWIFT, WHO WAS
DEFEATED FOR RE-ELECTION TO
THE CITY COUNCIL FROM THE
30TH WARD AT THE ALDERMANIC
ELECTION IN 1914.
It can be truthfully stated that in
our long experience in coming in con
tact with politicians, extending over
a period of more than twenty years,
that we can cheerfully testify that we
have always found the vast majority
of them to be honest in their state
ments in reference to paying their
newspaper bills for advertising. Some
times some of them may be slow in
settliner un their inrieKtfrine; Ktit
till ?" Keiivialry-Trcf W&:3trt-;-thrr
same and frequently a few of them
have been unable to square up every
thing until six months or one year
after they were either elected or de
feated. But those who are honest,
who desire to deal fairly with their
fellow men will in hc end come up
with the right tfiing for they regard
newspaper advertising as a commer
cial proposition or transaction and no
one can successfully play at the game
of politics nor succeed in the business
world very Iong'unless they half way
play the game square.
With much pride it can be further
honestly stated that wc always en
deavor to deal square with the poli
ticians and if we give them our word
and honor that we will do so and so
or that we will not do so and so, as
the case might be, we always manage
to keep our word with them and that
counts for a great deal in the long
run.
Right at this point it might not be
out of place to state that after doing
business with Democrats and Repub
lican politicians in this city during
the period mentioned above only two
of them have deliberately and in a
cold blooded manner attempted to
heat or skin us out of the money
which they honestly owed us for ad
vertising in the columns of The Broad
Ax, namely the Hon. Anton J. Cer
mak, the would-be sheriff of Cook
County and he has the great distinc
tion of being the first person with the
rotten ruling of Judge John R. Cav
erly to put it over on us in that re
spect. It was a good" thing that the
Hon. Anton J. Cerroak owed us such
a small sum of money for if it had
been a larger amount we would have
appealed the case to the appellate
court and beat him and Judge Caver
ly to a dead stand still.
Two weeks prior to the aldermanic
primaries in the spring of 1914, our
phone rang early one morning and
the voice on the other end of the wire
said this is "Attorney Walter T.
Stanton, and I wish to inform you
that Alderman Joseph A. Swift wants
to see you at his place of business,
South Halsted street and 54th place;
call in to see t him this . morning,"
which we did and during our con-
vctMB-!aldai2un&fi&xeam
quested us to call on his lawyer, Mr.
Walter T. Stanton, and he would give
us .his double column newspaper cut
and an article in favor of his re-nomination
for Alderman of the 30th
Ward.
The article and cut of Alderman
Swift appeared in the columns of this
paper the Saturday before the primar
ies and the Alderman and Mr. Stan
ton liked it very much and thought
it would do him a great deal of good
among the colored people residing in
the 30th Ward. That same Saturday
evening before the primaries a citi-J
zens' meeting was held at St Mary's
A. M. E. Church, 53rd and South
Dearborn streets and residing in the
30th Ward at that time we attended
the meeting and Mr. Stanton insisted
that we should preside over the meet
ing which we did and informed the
colored people that it was only a lo
cal contest, that Alderman Swift had
in the past been fair in his dealings
with the colored people; that he had
cheerfully done manj favors for them,
that he had endeavored to keep the
streets and alleys clean, where the
majority of the colored people resided
and that he was morally entitled to
receive at least some of the votes of
the colored people on primary day.
Alderman Swift was unable to at
tend the meeting himself, for he did
not arrive at the church until a few
minutes after the last person had left
the church but Mr. Stanton and for
mer Alderman Michael Mclnerney in
formed him that we had presided over
the meeting and had spoken very
tjicely in favor of his re-nomination
and Alderman Swift heartily thanked
us for doing so and at the same time
he requested us to call in and see him
Monday, Feb. 22, which was Wash
ington's Birthday.
