FRANKLIN STREET ® Mmm » WITH OTHER FOLKS' MONEY A Young San Bernardino Law= yer Goes Away STOLE FROM HIS CLIENTS Made Unprofitable Investments With tbe Money B. E. Rowell, the Guilty Party, Is In El Paso and Is Probably Headed for Mexico SAN BERNARDINO, Sept. 21.— E. E. Rowell, one ot the most prominent at torneys of this city, has been out of town for two weeks and developments have re vealed a very serious state of affairs witn refcienca to his relations to somo of his clients. Where Mr. Rowell Is at present cannot be learned from any of the mem bers of his family or business associates, but from other sources it is learned th»t he is in El Faso, Texas. Them are two particular transactions witb which the present difficulties have to do, one of which has already been set tled to those in interest, and the other, In which two notes for $11000, said to be forgeries, figure, and remain to be ad justed. Both of these linancial transac tions are directly connected with Mrs. Sarah C Hinckley. Rowell was her attorney, und had handled considerable money for her. Some time ago, Mrs. Hinckley say« Row ell came to her and lold her ho knew of an investment which would require something over $3000, but which would be very profitable, and on this representa tion Mrs. Hinckley says sho furnished tiie money. Whether this investment was made as represented Mrs. Hinckley does not know. Howell's friends say tbat it was inane, and that it turned out unprofita ble and that the principal was lost. However tbat may be, in July Mrs. Hinckley began to press the matter, and I o demand of the attorney that he mako some showing with reference to it or furnish socurrity for tho money. The matter was pressed so strongly that tho attorney was forced to do something, and he tbereforu turned over to Mrs. Hinck ley a mortgage on his mother's homo place, at the corner of Fifth and E streets, in this city, the mortgage pur- Jioiting to have been executed by Mrs. Kowell in favor of her son. When tje mortgage was given Mrs. Hinokley. at the same time Rowell re quested tbat it be not placedd on record, and the requestjwas complied with, until a few days ago. when Mrs. Hinckley was advised that her mortgage might be made secondary to seme other claims if it was not recorded, and it was therefore filed. It bas been stated that this motgagewas a forgeiy, and that Mrs. Kowell had not signed it, nor did she know of its exist ence. Mrs. Rowell was seen at her son's horns In Urbita tbis morning and said tbat the signature was not forged. She ■ays aba executed the mortgage in Los Angeles, and that she knew wnnt it was ana what it was to be used for. But tbe mortgage It seems was not large enogb to cover all tnat was olairaed by Mrs. Hinokley as due from Rowell. Not or.lr tbe money woich was to be in vested, bqt some collections and other minor Jsums were to he accounted for ■nd in all about $4500, and Mrs. Hinck ley demanded settlement in full, when she, learaed of Bowella' absence. This wns effected two days ago by Mrs. Bow el], the mother of the uttorney, deeding ncr home outright to Mrs. Sarah C. Hinckley in full of all claims held by'the latter against E. E. Rowell. That mat' ter has therefore been satisfactorily ad justed. Mrs. Kowell said this morning that she did not dead away her property to cover any money which had oeen mis appropriate d, but funds which hud been entrusted to him and which hud been in vested disastrously. The most serious phase of the difficulty at present is two notes, ono for $1000 and one for $2000, now held by It. K. Annable for collection, whicli are made payable to Josephine Hinckley, a resident of Rhode Island, and which purport to have been signed by Surah 0, Hinckley of this city. By the latter the signature is pronounced a forgery, and if this should be estab lished it will remain for Kowell to ac count for the notes, since they were de livered by him to K. K. Annable, attor ney for Josephine Hinckley. Frank Hinckloy, tho deceased husband of Sarah C. Hinckley, during his life time gave an annuity note to Josephine Hinckley in return for 11000, which came originally from their fatner's estate. The interest on tho annuity amounted to $t4O, and at her husband's death, Mrs. Sarah 0. Hinckley determined to pay the note. The matter was arranged, and. she says she gave Kowell. acting as her attorney. $4000 in checks witli which to pay the note. Mr. Kowell paid the note through At torney Annable, but paid ii with $1000 in cash, and the two notes, ono for $1000 and one for $2000, and bearing the signa ture of Sarah C. Hincklev. This was in February of the preaont year. 'Jibe lirst that Mrs. Sarah C. Hinckloy knew of these notes was on Thursday, when Mr. Annable notitiod hor that one of tbe notes fell due October Ist, and that payment would be expected. Mrs. Himkley at once interviewed the lawyer and pronounced the signature a forgery. She also Mated that she had given Kow ell,lthen acting as her attorney, $4000 in bank chocks, with which to pay oH the annuity note in full, and that sho had not given the other notes, nor did she know an;.■thing about tbem. Tho notes are still in Mr. Annable's bauds, and no further proceedings have been decided upon. A number of other charges nre also made against Kowell, notably one to the effect that he has bested his partner to tbe extent of more than $1000, but Judge lirtinson is out of town today and no statement from him could |be"secured. It is understood, however, that he has made the statement to several attorneys In tbis city. In all nearly $10,000 has been discov ered missing in one way or another. Kowell Is un adopt in the Spanish lan guage, and it is supposed he is headed for Mexico, if prosecutions are begun. AFTER THE BIG FIGHT. Owing to the success of the fiesta the committee has in contemplation another event in the amusement line tbat if se cured will place San Bernaardino at the bead of tbe cities of the coast as v sport ing center. Tho recent success of the four clays' festival shows that the busi ness men are alive, go-ahead people, full of Dusn and energy, ready at all times to assist. The chairman of the fiesta com mitteo has telegraphed to Richard K. Fox of New York city, through whose hands most of tho great sporting events of the country must pass, either for ar rangement or arbitration, as he is the recognized authority on everything from v ball game to a yacht race, offering the use of the amphitheater ior the coming C'orbett-Fitzsiiumons boxing match, and guaranteeing a purse ot $06,000 ior the occasion as a prize. Should tbey conclude to come here the amphitheater can ba enlarged and ar ranged to seat 30,000 people, which would be neeesiary on sucb an occasion, and the event will be tbe greatest niatjh that has ever taken nl»co in this city. An answer is expected as soon as a conference can be held with the managers of the contest at Dallas and learn whether it can take plaoe tbere or not.
