Charles Carlesi, Painted Check
Forger, Must Go to
Sing Sing.
His First Crime Was Blotted Out
by Pardon From
I Ner York, January 5.?Charlea Carl
i eal. who was oouvlcted last February
M the head of a band of painted oheek
forgers which la said to have swindled
hanks in New York and other ulUea
out of 1500.000, was ordered to Slug
Sing yesterday by the Appellate Di?
vision of the Supremo Court to begin
;o serve o term of twelve years and
. I even months. Carlesl's scheme was
to make ohoto-ltthographa of veal
checks and to have them touched up
by an artist.
Carlerl, n ho has spent a small for?
tune trying to keep out of Sing Sing,
retain.-l tleorgc Gordon Ttattle to fight
his case In the Appellate Division.
Shortly after he was convicted, of forg
ary in the second degree as a second
offender a certificate of reasonable
doubt was granted to him by Supreme
Court Justice Blanchard on his plea
tltat the indictment as a seeowi Of.
render was invalid. He has since been
out on hall.
The lnddctment against Carlesi
charged that he was convicted In the
United .statps District Court In 1191'
of seUlng counterfeit sliver dollars an?
was imprisoned In the Monroe County
.'all for three and a hnlf years and
|L Carlesi admitted the convic?
tion, but contended that a full pardon
was granted to him In X9CI by Presi?
dent Bo one volt, with restoration of hie
civil rights, and that his record there?
after was that of a man who never
had been convicted.
It Tvaa upon this plea that Carlesi
was admitted to ball and It was the
real question Involved in the appeal
before the Appellate Division. Car?
tel's attorney basod his argument
chiefly upon the ruling by Justice Field
? > case decided by the United States
Supreme Court, in which Justice Field
"A pardon reaches both the punish?
ment prrs rlbr-d for the offense and
the guilt of the offender, and when flu
pardon is full it rMegateg the punish?
ment and blots ?ut of existence the
guilt, so that Ui the eye of the law the
offender is as innocent as If lie bad i
never committed the offense."
Justice Miller, writing the opinion
la thi ?'arlesl case, aald that Carles''s ;
full pardon hv President Roosevelt did
not "Mot out" the fact or record of |
h fa conviction, but merely restored
the defendant to his civil rights. The
> ourt said that tinder the laws of this!
t-tate. one who commits a crime after
bavins; been convicted of another ct'me I
is punished f >r tile second offense, to
which a greater degree of criminality
is attached. As to the effect of Pres- I
ldent Roosevelt's pardon on Carlesi s
SO< ond conviction. Justice Miller said: |
"it was surely within the province.
of the Legislature to attach mu^h I
greater criminality to the second of?
fense from the mere fart oc" a convic?
tion for a first, and the executive by
tm exercise of the pardoning power
couM no more interfere *"ith that
exercise of legislative power than the
Laglalartard could interfere with the
power o pardon."
For ytars Carlesi i-.a<l conducted a
cellar saloon at Thirteenth Street ar.*i
... whtria the poli< e ssdV has
been the hea . -.art. : a not only of a |
shrewd band of iforgers. biut of black
mailers and bomb throwers, ills con- !
vl -tton was due to the ft.et that after
the ;irtiet he employed to retouch
checks had used a $-3 check ae a
nods] Car lead, instead of destroying
It. cent it to the bank and cashed K.
Ehren then it took the poUce four years
to get enougu evidence to arrest Car-I
lesl. I
In l*t1 a. forged check for 13,200. I
signed by ttte president of Fine. tH?erT '
A- CSTWoll, Wae cashed by the Mercan?
tile National Bank. When |t came
to the firm ft wae recognised
as bavins the same series number aa a
check returnad some t'aie before. Ex?
perts found Usat "be signature on the
' ? h twee not only a forgery, but
thai th. check itself was a photo- ,
Lithograph of the other check. The
i-hadlngs mt the letters had been done
nd with a brurh.
A few days later the |2s check bear- I
ing Carlesi'e Indorsement burned up
at a bank, and a watch was kept on
CarleaTa saloon. The detectives found
that member* of Carlesn's band were
established In various parts of the
' ity .vs eeatanesn arse with cash
furn'shed by Carleal opened acoounta
In neighborhood banks. I/i course of
tlnie h check for i large amount was
d?posited the money was eolleeteat and
the atsnaM closed. The big che^k
was always bogus .

"The public spirit that prevails
abroad is the mig'ity factor In thia {

the lack of this spirit la tbe United

so far behind. We .1:1 never expect

new science is particularly useful for
military purposes does not appeal to
the. great majority of our complacent
money-making people.
"The army and the na-'y are at pres?
ent the only branches of the govern-1
rnent service actively engaged in tbe;
study of aerial navigation, and are
fully competent to take charge of thia
work. By placing the military aervb ea
In charge of thia development, we will
not only Insure the s>stematlc de?

Lieutenant Foulois in another part
of his paper expressed liie opinion that
at the present skilled aviators oper
at.ng properly designed and construct?
ed machines, equipped with powerful
laotirs, rag fly In alr-iost any wind that
blows Lieutenant Foulois then goes
on to quote Orville Wright, who he re?
fers to as being "without doubt the
tnoet reliable and cotiaervative -tuth-'r
Ity In the world." as having roc sally
stated that It Is now possible to con?
struct aeroplanes that would carry
tw. nty-ftve persons and which could
be driven at a speed of .00 miles an
hour If necessary. Such' a machine.
"Foul-.is adds, would cross the United
States with but two or tl.ree stop*.
As for the qualifications that appli?

services should poas> ss, the first is a

nerves, well-trained mus'les and good
eyesight. When proved physically
