Preacher Passes a Worthless
Check on Local Bank.
A stranger who registered at the
Geary Hotel last week as "J. T.
Sewell, Lynchburg," and after having
a pleasant chat with Mayor Geo. !l.
Get ry, in which conversation Le
learned that his brother, Mr. E. C.
Geary, was assistant cashier of the
Shenandoah National Bank, Mr.
Sewell strolled up Court street and
into the Shenandoah National Bank
where he introduced himself to Mr.
Geary as a minister of the Gospel
from Frederick county, and was en?
gaged in missionary work. In the
course of the conversation the Rev?
erend gentleman (Vi spoke of a num?
ber of people that he knew in Fred?
erick county, casting his eyes across
the street he saw the sign of Taven?
ner A: Bausennan and informed Mr.
Geary that 4'Tavenner was from
Frederick but he was not personal 1\
acquainted with him but knew his
father, Jonah Tavenner very well.
After saatisfying himself that he had
made a favorable impression on Mr
Geary the gentleman handed him a
check for $27.00, on the First National
Bank of Cumberland. Md., and pay?
able to Rev. ? ? Ne ff, signed by
"The Fidelity Reality Company, of
Cumberland and endorsed by Rev.
?. ?i, Grabill, of near Berry ville and
B* W. Grove, of Winchester,
A short time after Rev. Sewell left
the bank Mr. Geary became uneasy
about the check and called Mr. Grove
over th^e telephone, who informed him
that he had never heard of the preacher
and that he had not endorsed the
check. The check came back in due
form and was laid caretully away
with others of its class.
The case was promptly reported to
the Bankers Association who placed
it in the hands of the Pinkerton De?
tective Agency. From the description
of Rev. Sewell furnished by Mr.
Geary, it is thought to be almost cer?
tain that this gentleman is the same
man who passed himself off as a post
office inspector in Frederick county
several weeks ago and had a number
of checks cashed by rural postmasters,
besides relieving one postmaster of a
overcoat, gold watch and some money
belonging to the government.
