MYSTERIOUS $100,060 NOTE First National bank Receives It for Collection. JUDGE HANDLEY'S SIGNATURE . T . Note Sent from Now York by a Man Named Dawson Is Made Payable to II. S. Plereo, at One Tims a Scran ton Banker, Now Dead. Wednesday's mall from New York city brought to Cashier J. A. Linen, of the First National bank on LackuwuJi na avenue, a letter from a man named Dawson, enclosing- a note of $100,000, purported to have been signed by tho late ex-Judge John Hundley, In Sep tember, 1S85, and made payable In ten years. Cashier Linen was Instructed to collect the note and yesterday after noon he handed the paper to Attorney Lemuel Amermnn, John T. Richards and ex-Attorney General Palmer, of Wllkee-Harre. executors of the estate. They pronounced It a forgery. The note wan drawn on an ordinary sheet of writing paper and Is a common promissory agreement to pay the face value of It at the end of ten. yeurs. It Is made payable to H. S. Pierce1 and endorsed with what Mr. Amentum us serts Is the forged signature of Mr. Pierce, who Is dead. The document Is written In a clever Imitation of the late Judge Handley's handwriting. An Kiocutor Interviewed. A Tribune reporter Interviewed At torney Amermart last night. Mr. Amerman did not assume a mysterious utr In discussing the affair, but related all the facts with perfect freedom. He said It Is such a palpable forgery that the executors have not the least notion of paying It or even treating It with serious consideration. The body of the note is cleverly designed and ap proaches to a falrly-good imitation of Judge Handley's style of writing, which was a very peculiar one, as all who have seen samples of It know. The signature Is far from the mark and Is nothing moiv than a clumsy at tempt at forgery. On the back of the note, where It Is presumed H. S. Pierce endorsed it, the signature Is not more apt to deceive than that of the maker of the note. H. S. Pierce was a prominent capi talist of Scranton years ago and was the sum and substance of a banking In stitution that did business on Wyoming avenue, in the building where the of fices of the Scranton Gas and Water company now are. Mr. Pierce lived on Washington ave nue and was well known as a man of business. Several years ago the bank became insolvent and went Into the hands of a receiver. After that Mr. Pierce retired from active business pur suits and led a quiet life until his death a few years ago. He left an estate that was reputed to be worth a few million dollars. The name of the Institution was the Scranton Trust Company and Savings bank. By those who know, the statement is made that between Judge Handley and Mr. Pierce there had never been any business dealings, and such knowledge would naturally suggest to the exe cutors that the note had something sus picious about It. Mr. Amerman said there Is not a single record of ithe note among the papers and documents of the estate. Judge Handley had an exact and sys tematic method of arranging his papers, so that every document that he re ceived had been filed away for refer ence, and instead of being a promis- sary note drawn up on common paper, it would. If genuine, have been made out on regular bank paper and would not be non-interest bearing. Judge Handley, in Mr. Amerman's opinion was too shrewd a business man to loan such a sum as $100,000 for ten years without Interest. Cashier Linen, of the First National bank, pronounced the note a forgery as soon as he received It. The exe outers are waiting for the person who sent on the note ito appear to substan tiate the alleged genuineness of it. "DEAD LINE 61AXG" AGAIX. It Robbed Once Too Often and Gets In 1 Trouble. Another coterie of the famous "Dead Line Gang" of Ilellevue has been ar rested. They had stolen over 200 pounds of brass and a quantity of lead pipe from the yards of the Lackawanna Iron and Steel company. George Okell, the company's detective susplcloned the gang and frightened "Hum" Oerrlty Into squeellng on four of his pals, "Jack" Richards, aged 18; "Mike" Cog-gins, aged 17; "Mike" Uy land, aged 19; "Jack" Brown, aged 17. Richards was the only one who would tell where the plunder was hidden. It was found under a barn at the corner of Fifth avenue and Emmet street. At 3 o'clock yesterday morning the four young thieves were surprised while asleep In a railroad shanty on Emmet street near the tracks. They were arrested by Patrolmen Walsh and J. V. Thomas and two special officers. CJerrlty was released. In yesterday's police court Richards was furnished ball, but Coggins, the leader of the sex tette, was committed to jail in de fault of $500 ball, and Hyland and Hrown. were committed In default of $100 ball each. Hyland was, also held on a charge of highway' robbery which he committed several months ago on Scranton street. MELITA'S NEW OFFICERS.

Boys who were playing near the breaker of the Jermyn Coal company, at Dickson City, discovered yesterday morning In a small culvert the body of a man In an advanced stage of decom position. It is supposed that the body had been washed down the creek by the high waters of the past few days. Coroner Kelley was notified and viewed the body. On the throat the flesh had decomposed to a greater ex tent than on any other part of the head or neck. The coroner considers this an evidence of foul play; for it would seem to Indicate that the man had been choked to death, as It Is an anatomical fact that tissue that has been brulBed will be the first to be attacked by the process of putrefaction. A Jury was empaneled and sworn. The coroner ordered Undertaker Jones, of Olyphant, to take charge of the body, and an autopsy will be performed to day. The clothes the man wore would not denote that he had been a working man, but there was no scrap of paper nor any article found In the pockets to furnish any clue to his Identity. Of all the numerous persons who collected at the spot yesterday and saw the remains, not one recognized the bloated features. Y. M. C. A. GYMNASTS. Annual Exhibition Last Night at the Academy.
