hrastus Wiman, under
out charging him
the endorsement of
ulliuger on a check for
$5,000 drawn to the hitter's order on
the Chemical bank by It. G. Dun &Co.,
was continued this morning before
Justice Ingraham in the court of oyer
aud terminer, The jury having been
completed yesterday afternoon, tho
case of the pros "oution was presented
to the jury ihis morning by Assistant
Dintrict Attorney Francis S. Wellman.
Mr. Wellman began his opening at a
quarter to 11 o'clock. Ho said that on
February 21 of this year the grand jury
ootids county, aftor a carofnl considera
tion of the facts in thiscnie.directed tho
district attorney to call Erastus Wiman
to the bar to answer to tbe charge
of forgery in the second degree.
After explaining to the jury tbe
legal distinction botwoen forgery in the
first nud in tho second degree, he told
them that tbo indictment under which
Mr. Wiman was being tried contained
two counts; one chsrgiog him with
forging the name of E. W. Bulllnger
upon the cluck of It. G. Dunn & Co.
issued to Mr. Bulllnger for$o.0C0; the
second charging him with Knowingly
Uttered this forged commercial paper
Mr Wellman then sketched tho bus
iness of It. G. Dun & Co. it wus
founded by It. G Dun forty or fifty
years ago, and for yours had been one
of the leading commercial agencies of
the country. At first it was known uu
der the name of Dun, Barlow & Co., then
as Dun, Wiman & Co., and fiually as It.
G. Dun & Co. W by tho name of
Mr. Wiman had beon dropped from the
title of tbe firm he did not feel it nec
essary to disclose at this time. For
twenty-live or more years Mr. Wiman
h id been connected wit li tbo business,
He had entered it as a clerk in u branch
office in Canada, of which ho became
manager, and eventually came to the
central i nice in tms city, aud rose to
be luanagi-r of that.
To the outside public, continued Mr.
Wellman, Mr. Wiman doubtless was
supposed to be a partner, Iudoed, It.
(J, Dun ifcCo. probably held thi-mselves
out to the public as sncli. It was cer
tain that Mr. Wimuo had largely the
managership of the business. Yet in
reality mere was atisoi utely no part
nership at ad. Mr. Dun was,
and always had been, the sole owner
of tho business. Mr. Wiman was
limply a salaried manager for Mr. Dun,
and this relation ho perfectly under
stood as thoroughly ns Mr. Dun hini
ielf did. In proof of tins relationship
aud or the undoubted full knowledge
of it by Mr. Wiinan, the people would
place In evidence the articles of associ-
stion under WnlOll Mr. Dnn and Mr.
Wiman did business together. These
articles were redrawn In 1889, and were
as precise and unmistakable in lan
guage ;ih it was possible for them to
be. In these articles it was clearly
stated that Mr. Wimau'a compensation
was a salary, aud that the amount of
the profits was to form the basis of its
computation. Mr. Wiman was to re
ceive 1(1 per cent, of the net profits,
Which amounted to between Ssdli.OOO
and Sf80,000 a year.
Mr. Wiman, continued Mr. Wellman,
had exclusive charge of tho printing
aud publishing of the reference book
issued by the' agency, Among outside
persons who had connections with this
part of the business1 was .1. M. Fitzger
ald, who supplied about $70,000 worth of
paper n year, and h. W. Bulllnger,
who furnished tho book called 'Bullen
ger's guide,' which was sent out with
each copy of the referenc-" bo.'k and
ost between SI. 1.000 and $10,000 a year
All this was mi exclusively under the
control of Mr. Wiman that nobody elso
in the business knew anything about it.
Mr. Wellman thon related the cir
cumstances attending tho particular
act for which he wus indicted. On
Feb. 6, 1808, Mr. Wiman went to Mr.
Barrul, the cashiir of It. G. Dun St Co ,
and told him to draw a check foi $r,000
on the t In mini iN itional bank to tho
order of E. W. Bnllinger. Mr.
Wiman then signed the name of
B. G. Dun et Co. to tho check
as ho bud a right to do. Then
he wrote on the buck of tho check
the name of
under it, his
B, W. Bulling, and.
own name. Tho check
did not go
to Mr. Bnllinger nor di
rectly to the Chemical bank. It went
to the Central National bank, where it
was deposited to tho private iicconutof
Mr. Wiman. To show Mr. Wiman's
knowledge that he was uttering a
forged cheek, tbe prosecution would
prove that ho had beon uttering forged
checks for a year.
