CONSPIRATORS ARRAIGNED
Carpenter, Hamm and Mitchell
in tbe Police Dock
STATEMENTS MADE BY THEM
And Also by Other Actors in the Now
Celebrated Cue
Attorney Rogers Tails How the Thing Was
Worked—Strang* and Cornicle Make
Statements-Examinations Set
"Judge" A. M. Carpenter, Frank
Hamm and George Mitchell, the men ar
rested on Monday afternoon by Detec
tives Hawley an j Bradlsh In the ofllce
of Earl A. Rogers In the Nolan & Smith
block, for fraudulently Issuing and nego
tiating bogus time checks, were ar
raigned In Justice Owens department of
the police court yesterday afternoon on
two charges of forgery each, and time
(or their examination set for May 8.
Hamm was seen in Jail Just previous
to his arraignment and protested his in
nocence in the matter, saying that all
the checks he ever handled had been dis
counted In good faith and had been by
him received from the original owners.
He admitted having shaved to S. Carter
' Smith all the checks ha holds except
four, which he said were paid direct to
the men themselves. He said he had been
employed by Mr. Creaslnger to hunt up
the men whose checks he had cashed In,
and he found them all to be correct.
Smith wanted him to do the same for
him but offered only a small sum, which
he did not accept, as Creaslnger paid
him more. This latter party has, ac
cording to Hamm, twanty-nlne of the
checks, all of which Hamm says are
food. When told that Mitchell had con
fessed and given the whole scheme away
Hamm winced perceptibly, but still per
slsted that his actions In the transac
tions were all straight. He steadfastly
denied that he had ever signed any name
but his own to any of the Instruments,
yet had handled many of them. Hamm
was formerly employed as night watch
man on the block, and In this capacity
says he knows or did know nearly all the
men who worked there, and that every
check he ever handled Is genuine.
Mitchell, the confessor, was also inter
viewed but refused to talk. He expressed
himself as sorry that he had said what
he did, and that If he had kept his mouth
shut he would stand a good show of es
caping from the trouble, while now he
looked for a term In the penitentiary.
He admitted having forged the signa
tures to some of the checks and said that
Hamm likewise signed many of them
with fictitious signatures. Asked the
direct question whether or not his con
fession was not literally true and that he
was a self-lnerlmlnated forger and per
jurer, he said it was and that he would
have to take the consequences. He had
been drawn Into the scheme only lately
and now too late saw hlaVerronand the
dupe that he had been made by the de
signing swindlers.
Contractor Fred Strangers position is
a rather anomalous one and it now seem -
possible that he is but a dupe and had
little or nothing to do with the scheme
but was used by the others to further
their own designs. Strange says that
he accepted the contract for the building
but sublet It to a Mr. Wiffenbach, who
runs a cornice works on Buena Vista
street. To the sub-leasing of the Job
Newell & Gammon Interposed an objec
tion and told him they would deal with
no one but him. Wiffenbach went ahead
with the work and yet all business be
tween Newell & Gammon and the con
tractor was transacted by Strange and
he signed all checks.
In regard to his signatures on the time
checks Strange said that It was the cus
tom for Wiffenbach and. Hamm to send
a lot of checks to him for signature, and
these he would sign without knowing
the men or what work they were sup
posed to have performed. In order to
save trouble he had affixed his signature
to a lot of blank checks which were filled
out by Wiffenbach as they were needed
and it Is probable that Hamm by some
means managed to get hold of some of
these. Strange Is employed in a planing
mill on Central avenue and his time was
so taken up by his work that he had lit
tle left In which to look after the Newell
block or Its construction.
E. P. Carnlcle, the architect, had little
to say. His only connection with the
matter he said had been to on several oc
casions verify Mr. Strange's signature
on the checks. As architect he did not
know, nor could he, all the men working
on the building, and whenever a check
was placed before him for verification he
did no more than attest to the genuine
ness of Strange's signature.
A totally different story is told by
Earl A. Rogers, S. Carter Smith's attor
ney. He states that on one occasion at
least when Smith discounted three
check.*, he did so for and paid the money
directly into the hands of Mr. Carnlcle.
The latter gave him the checks and, call
ing his office boy, divided the money into
three packages, corresponding to the
amounts called for by each check, placed
It In three envelopes, marking on each
the name of the man to whom the check
was supposedly Issued, and told the boy
to deliver the envelopes to the men when
they called. These men cannot now be
found by Rogers or Smith and payment
on the checks cannot be had.
Before Smith had ever discounted one
check Carnlcle had told him that the
instruments were all right and repeated
ly after he had begun cashing them was
Smith assured by Carnlcle that there
would be no trouble as to payment.
Rogers first had his suspicions arous
ed by the actions of Carnlcle In asking
that the $40 for securing the addresses
and names of the men who appeared on
the checks be paid In advance. When
later on Carpenter appeared and offered
to do the work, Rogers carefully had all
the original checks photographed before
he allowed them to pass from his hands
Into those of Carpenter. The latter was
suspiciously prompt in securing the sig
natures to the mechanics' liens and even
more so when he went out with Mitch
ell and In little over an hour had sup
posedly rounded up the eleven different
men, taken them to eleven different no
taries public and had their signatures
attested.
. The conspirators were so eager to get
hold of the $40, and so afraid to trust
each other that instead of only one
coming to deliver the papers and get the
money the whole trio walked Into the
trap and were caught with neatness and
dispatch. With Mr. Rogers was O. A.
vickrey, who assisted In working up the
case and who held the check from the
hands of the ravenous gang while Rog
ers was examining the papers to see If
all were there and In due form.
Not the least peculiar part of the
whole affair is the actions of the eleven
notaries public who were each and all
so ready to accept a fee that they did
not stop to assure themselves that the
party who wished to swear to his sig
nature was who he represented himself
to be, as is required of them by law
Only one notary to whom the swindlers
went was shrewd enough not to get
caught, and he has had experience in
this line before, having been nipped in
the Green bogus mortgage deal a year
or two ago. Not knowing the parti- I
he refused to take their acknowledg
ment.
The whole affair is a nasty mess and
may, before It Is fully aired in the courts,
drag Into It the names of further parties
who have not yet appeared. There have
been two charges of forgery preferred
against Hamm, Mitchell and Carpenter
with a probability of others for perjury
»nd obtaining money under false pre
tena*m Nona of the men have been ad
mltted to bail and the prospect of a
crowded court room at the preliminary
examination will undoubtedly be ful
filled, as the matter has aroused Intense
Interest, owing to the prominence of the
parties Involved and the boldness and
audacity of their operations.
VETERAN ENCAMPMENT
The Southern California Association Will
Meet at Ventura In July
The ninth annual encampment of the
Southern California Veteran Encamp
ment association will be held at Ventura

tion drum corpa will be reorganized and
be In command of Captain Sam Kutz,
deputy county clerk, to whom all com
munications relative to musicians should

has succeeded in obtaining a one-fare
rate for the round trip over the South
ern Pacific railroad from all points with
in the limits of the association. The
camp ground selected is a beautiful site,
lying near tho ocean front and within
two blocks of the bath houses and the
city. Commander Geo. T. Downing and
A. C. Drake, adjutant, extend a special
Invitation to all camps of Sons of Veter
ans, ladles' aid societies to the Sons of

WHY A BROADWAY TUNNEL?
The Desired End May Be Obtained in
Another Way
dradinf Simple, Work Expeditious and the
Coat Would Be Small -These and
Other Advantages Obvloua
That a deep-rooted objection exists to
the construction of the proposed Broad
way tunnel admits of but little doubt.
Owners of property, outside of a very
few who would be directly benefited by
the "improvement," do not take kindly
to the idea of being specially assessed
for this piece of work, and real estate
owners whose holdings are along the
route of the hole in the hill protest
against the construction, claiming that
their property would be seriously dam
aged, and yet, nearly all are agreed that
owing to the congested condition of
Spring and Main streets a new outlet
must be afforded to the north.
As pointed out in an editorial in yes
terday's issue, this may be done. It can
flap Showing by Dotted Lines the Proposed
Extension of New High Street Into Broad
way.
bo accomplished without the existence
of an unattractive appearing tunnel and
its attendant largo cost. A superior
plan of attaining the desired end at com
paratively slight expense is found in
the use of New High street together with
the condemnation and use of a strip of
land in a nearly direct prolongation of
the course of that street through the
block south of Franklin street and hav
ing its egress upon Broadway just north
of the property occupied by the Times
building.
The extension of New High street
suggested is about 285 feet on the east
side and 200 on the west side and the im
provements to be removed are of an in
expensive character. The grading would
be simple, the work could be expeditious
ly done and the cost would be small.
These and other advantages must be
obvious to everyone.
The accompanying cut clearly por
trays the proposition. The dotted lines
running south from Franklin and New
High mark the boundaries of the pro
posed extension across the block to
Broadway.
A BICYCLE ACCIDENT
A Handle Bar Breaks and a Collar Bone
Also
Mrs. Beaumont of 231% South Main
street and her sister, Miss Gregory,
while bicycle riding last evening met
with a painful accident in which Mrs.
Beaumont was seriously Injured. At
the corner of Pico and Figueroa streets
the handle bar of Mrs. Beaumont's bi
cycle broke and the rider was thrown
against a passing carriage. A convey
ance at hand carried Mrs. Beaumont to
her home, where it was found that the
left collar bone was broken and one of
the large vessels of the neck ruptured.
The English and German specialists,
who were called to attend the injured
lady, report that their patient will suf
fer no permanent disability.

MANUFACTURERS IN SESSION
Meeting of the Local Association Held
Last Evening
Prospectus of the Proposed Tour ol Business
flen and ITnnufacturcrs Through the
South American Republics
The Manufacturers' association met
In the assembly room at the chamber of
commerce last evening. In the absence
of the president and vice-president Mr.
L. Baruch was called to the chair.
Maj. George N. Nolan, the secretary,
read the minutes of the previous meet
ing, which were approved, after which
a number of communications were read.
Among these was one from the Mer
chants' association advocating the pro
posed reform in the method of assessing
and collecting taxes in California, on the
lines of an address delivered by T. W.
Brotherton, and asking) the co-operation
of the association in the matter. On mo
tion the communication was received
and filed and theseoretary instructed to
communicate with the Merchants' asso
ciation.
The secretary read the prospectus of
the proposed tour of the South Ameri
can republics to be made by representa
tive business men of the United States,
with a view to extending our trade re
lations with those states. The initiative
for this tour was taken up by the South
American republics, and It Is stated that
the authorities of those countries will
afford every facility for investigating
the resources of the three great South
American republics, the Argentine Re
public, Uruguay and Brazil. In this con
nection the following letter was read by
the secretary from President Search of
i the National Manufacturers' associa
tion, giving additional details:
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., April 2*. IS9B.
Mr. H. L. Story, Vice-President Nation
al Association of Manufacturers, Al
tadena, CM.:
Dear Sir—There has been presented
an opportunity for this association to
assume the control and direction of a
party of American manufacturers and
merchants whose purpose It Is to visit
Brazil, Argentine and Uruguay, in re
sponse to Invitations extended by those
governments. The purpose of this trip
is to make a study of the opportunities
for trade in those countries with a view
to the extension of our commerce with
those nations. This seems to be such
an opportunity for the association to do
some work of a very practical nature
that I have arranged with Mr. George
W. Flshback, secretary of legation at
Buenos Ayres. in whose hands the invi
tations of the South American govern
ments were placed, to assume the entire
control of this expedition. As the mem
bers of this party will meet their own
expenses this trip will involve no ex
pense to this association, unless it shall
be deemed necessary to expend some
small amount in the preparation of the
preliminary details, although all of this
will probably be Included in the esti
mate of the total cost to be paid by the
members of the party.
It Is desired that the party shall be
made up of representatives of different
branches of Industry, and that each
member shall pay particular attention to
those conditions directly affecting the
branch of business In which he Is con
cerned. Each member will be expected
to report the result of his observations
upon his return and the consolidated re
ports of all tho members will form a verj
valuable aid In the extension of our com
merce with South American countries
The party will be limited to thirty and
will sail about July Ist The trip will
consume about three months and the es
timated expense for each member to ill
be about $1200.
As at present outlined it seems desira
ble that the following Interests should
be represented In the party, although the
list is subject to change and revision:
Machinery, woodworking, metalwork
ing, engines and boilers, pumps, print
ing presses, etc., agricultural Imple
ments, farm wagons, railroad material
and equipment, hardware and tools,
woodenware, furniture, paper, wool and
woolens, cotton goods, carpets, coal,
shipbuilding, banking, grain trade.
I would be glad to have you suggest
to me the names of any men who are
considered as representing any of these
lines of business and who would be will
ing to participate In such a trip if they
should be invited. It is desired that as
large a list as possible of eligible men
should be prepared before any final se
lection is made or any Invitations ex
tended. In order that we may be sure to
make the best possible choice.
I shall be glad to have from you any
suggestions about this matter which
may occur to you, and your early con
sideration of the ruhjeet will be greatly
appreciated, as the time intervening be
tween now and the time fixed for start
ing is none too soon. Very truly yours,
THEO. C. SEARCH,
President National Association of
Manufacturers.
Considerable printed matter on gen
eral interest to manufacturers, sent out
by the national association, was read by
the secretary .including several bulle
tins or circulars of Information, contain
ing many suggestion! of Importance to
manufacturing interests, whleh were
filed, and the secretary instructed to
return the thanks of the association
tor the valuable contributions.
Kaspar Cohn & Co. were elected mem
bers of the association, and after some
general talk George L. Steams spoke at
some length on the proposed establish
ment of a shoe factory in the city by
J. H. Bigelow, a practical man from the
east, who has already put In a small
plant, but who Is desirous of enlarging
his field of operations. Mr. Bigelow, It
was stated, was willing to put In his cap
ital to the extent of $20,000, but to make
the venture a sueeess.about $80,090 was
necessary. Mr. Steams said Mr. Bige
low was his authority for the statement
that the best sole and belt leather pro
duced in the United States was made In
California, and, as there is room for at
A 50
CENT
Bottle of CUTICURA RESOL

SURE CURE for PILES
I w£e is*
least twenty shoe factories in South
ern California, Mr. Bigelow should re
ceive every assistance. Mr. Steams
called attention to the system of loaning
money in this section, and thought tha:
It should be changed. Manufactories
were essential to the permanent growth
the progress of a city, and there could
be no substantial prosperity without
them.
Mr. Baruch suggested that the matter
be further considered at the next meet
ing, when there was a larger attend
ance Of the members.
J. W. Frey advocated some measure
for the enlisted capitalists in the manu
facturing Industries, am, though*, that a
committee of the association should be
appointed to wait on men of money and
lay solid business enterprises before
them, and induce them to put money in
them. The matter was referred to the
committee on home industries, who were
requested to take action on the matter.
An Informal discussion followed, after
which the meeting adjourned to the first
Tuesday in June.
MEMORIAL DAY COMMITTEE
Arrangement* Nearly CompleteJ for the Ob
servance ol the Day
In Justice Morrison's court room a
meeting of the Memorial Day committee
was held last evening at which report:-!
of various sub-committees were re
ceived. It was stated that Mayor Ra
der will issue a proclamation to the
residents of tho city calling upon all to
observe the day fittingly in memory of
the nation's dead. Acting Chief of Po
lice Roberts sent word that he would
provide a sufficient escort of police for
both the parade and the exercises in
the afternoon.
Bartlett, Logan, Stanton and Kene
saw posts with t!<eir auxiliaries of
Women's Relief corpß and ladies of the
G. A. R. will participate in the parade
in the afternoon, marching to the Simp
son tabernacle on Hope street, where
appropriate exercises will be held.
Prof. Cornell has offered to furnish a
quartet of voices for this occasion and
Rev. F. A. Worth will sing a solo, Tin-
Roll Call, which has been rendered by
him on several simi'ar occasions.
The morning hours will be devoted to
the decoration of the graves, L,ogan post
looking after the Fort Mill cemetery.
Stanton at Rosedale and Bartlett and
Kenesaw posts atEvergre;n and smaller
cemeteries. Gen.A.B.Campbell will be

READ THIS LETTER
_ I.OS ANGELES, Jan. 1. ISO 6.
To the public: I was seriously afflicted
for about ten yeara with lung, liver and
kidney troubles. Tongue could never ex
press the misery 1 endured during those
years. I was reduced in flesh until I was
a mere skeleton; mv sight and hearing
were badly Impaired; was constantly
troublei? with constipation and piles, and
had a severe chronic cough. In short, lif*
was a burden and death would have been
welcome. I was treated by various spec
ialists without avail. I tlnallv resolved
to give Dr. Wonr Him. of No. 63! l I'pper
Main street, a trial. Of course, like many
others. I had no faith in a Chinese dor
tor, but it took only a few doses of his life
giving herbs to <nock all the skepticism
out of me. In JU3t five weeks the (looter |
pronounced mo cured, and now T can j
truthfully say that I never was healthier
and never felt better <n my life. My
sight and hearing are both fully restored: '
that obnoxious cough, constipation and
piles are entirely cured, and I rim rapidly
(raining in flesh, having gained forty :
pounds in two months.
I earnestly recommend all sufferers and
skeptics to give the doctor a trial and be i
convinced of his superior skill as a physi
cian.
