Bis Attorneys Will Vifrorousiy up
pose His Being Taken East—A
"Syndicate Investment Co"
The loss of $50,000 and the good name of
a well-known man of this city are Involved
In a sensational arrest which was made
Friday afternoon by Detectives Auble,
Hawley and Flammer. Dr. Wm. E. Forest
was taken into custody by the officers, and
he is alleged to have swindled a number
of people in New York city out of sums
aggregating $50,000, by means of a bogus
stock Investment bureau. He is charged
with grand larceny and will probably be
taken back to the east to stand trial, as
he was indicted some time the past year.
On Friday Chief Glass received the fol
lowing dispatch from Geo. W. McClusky,
chief of the detective department of New
York city: "Hold Dr. Wm. Forest. Will
prepare requisition papers at once. In
dicted for larceny of $2500 from Alex. Mc-
Elwee, at 50 Broadway. April 6, 1897."
ln addition to this Chief Glass received
a circular regarding Dr. Forest, In* Which
It was stated that the doctor had formerly
conducted a stock swindling place at 50
Broadway, New York, and had succeeded
ln doing a large number of people out of
money. His swindling operations were al
leged to have reached the sum of $50,000,
of which $20,000 was represented by the
agency which had issued the circular. It
had been learned that Dr. Forest was lo
cated ln Southern California.
Dr. Forest has been engaged In mining
ventures, and he has an office at Pasadena.
The detectives arrested him after he
came from Pasadena on au eleetrle car
and took him to the station. He asked
that nothing be said of the matter then,
so the details were not given out. He
communicated with Messrs. Groft & Water
man, and the attorneys were up bright and
early to try and get him released on a writ
of habeas corpus yesterday. This was de
feated by Detective Auble swearing to a
complaint charging him with being a fugi
tive from justice. He had been taken into
custody before on the telegraphic order
from McClusky. but on the showing that
he was held by an original complaint the
writ) was denied.
Dr. Forest was arraigned before Justice
Owens yesterday afternoon on a charge
of being a fugitive from Justice. On agree
ment the case was continued until next
Saturday. Bail was fixed at 15000, but later
reduced to $2000, which he was unable to
Dr. Forest takes his arrest very coolly,
and talked freely about the affair.
"I was engageil In managing a syndicate
investment company in New York," he
said, "and it was perfectly legitimate. I
handled no money for investors but mere
ly directed their investments. I had a list
of brokers—J. D. Whitney & Co. and A.
McKlnney, both reputable firms on Un
consolidated stock exchange, and one brok
erage firm on the New York stock ex
change. The investor was slhown this list
and selected) whatever broker he desired
tio handle the transaction. He then signed
an agreement in which it was stated that
he had deposited so much money wiTTi the
broker for the the purposes of Investment,
to be directed by me. I never handled a
dollar of money. The brokers made their
reports dJrect to the investor and paid'me
commissions and so notified the investors.
Whitney & Co. unfortunately failed and
no doubt some of the Investors lost their
"I do not know for hew much the firm
failed, but I do know it was a reputable
concern. My arrest Is simply an attempt
of some to make me pay the money thai
was lost by Whitney's failure. I Enow of
no such man as McElwee, whom I am al
leged to have swindled out of $2500. In fact
most of the money invested was In smail
sums; just how much they aggregated I
have no Idlea. The reason that I closed the
office was tha! tho Whitney failure put a
damper on the business. So far as my be
ing a fugitive from justice is concerned, it
is entirely wrong. I remained in New
York a month or more after I closed the
office and did not come away until proba
bly the Ist of May. I have always gone
under my own name and ln no way have 1
tried to make my whereabouts a secret. 1
would not be averse to going back to New
York on this matter were it not on account
of my business being injured by it. I have
several big mining deals on which demand
my presence. My attorneys will of course
determine whether I am to be taken back
or not."
Chief Glass received a dispatch from Mc-
Cluskoy yesterday stating that a copy of
the indictment against Dr. Forest hafi
been mailed to him. It is probable that a
hard fight will be made against Dr. For
est's being taken east, but ihe authorities
think that they will be able to hold him un
til the arrival of the officers from New-
York with requisition papers and the copy
of the Indictment also gets here
Dr. Forest married Miss {Catherine Kim
ball, the well known and charming singer
of this city, a ydar or so ago, and has beer,
residing in this city for some months past,
where they have a large circle of social
and musical friends.

A Former Employment Agent Who Is
There are several people ln the city who
are very desirous of flnding| De Witt C.
Hull, who formerly conducted an employ
ment agency In the McLaln and Lehman
block on Main street opposite Third. His
partner was Percy Mlel, and he ls still in
the city, but docs not appear to be ac
quainted with the whereabouts of Hull.
When Hull left here, about ten days ago,
he made no concealment of the fact, but
stated he had been called to New Haven,
Conn., by the serious illness of his wife.
It is now thought that Hull did not go to
that place at all nor had any Intention of
going there.
Fred W. Bishop, the proprietor of the
Natlck hotel cigar stand, is probably the
most anxious to get trace of Hull, as the
latter got into him to the tune of about
$50 or $60. Just how Hull succeeded ln in
gratiating himself Mr. Bishop declined to
tell. It was on a transaction about a check.
Hull claimed to Mr. Bishop that he had
money due him from the east, and on this
representation Mr. Bishop helped him to
secure some ready casb. According to one
report Hull drew a draft on an eastern
bank and Bishop endorsed the paper. On
the other hand, It was alleged that Bishop
cashed a check for Hull which was after
wards discovered to be worthless. Bishop
bus taken steps toward ascertaining where
Hull ls now and to determine what are
his prospects for getting back his money.

Ten-Year-Old Lawrence Edwards Is a
Great Prevaricator
Ail coor.s do not appear to look alike ;o
Ernest Hogan, even if he ls the composer
of that song. This has been the experi
ence of Lawrence Eugene Edwards, a di
minutive darkjy, aged 10 years. Lawrence
was thrown down hard by the Black Palti
Troubadours yesterday, of which Hogan is
a member, and there-by hangs a tale of in
fantile ability to impose upon people with a
cock and bull story.
A little colored boy showed up at the
police station yesterday with a tale of woe.
He told Capt. Roberts how he had been de
serted by the Black Patti troupe and was
friendless in this great city. As the'lark
tale of hard luck was repeated to the cap
tain, amid the tears of Lawrence, the ten
der-hearted official felt for the little waif,
reached him and patted him on his kinky
head. Lawrence said his home was in Salt
Lake city. His parents lived there. The
manager of the Black Patti troupe had pre
vailed upon his parents to allow the boy to
go with the outfit, which was fina~f done.
The boy said he came west with them hut
was put off Ihe train at Tropico. He was
taken over to see Chief Glass, with the
usual result. The chief felt sorry for the
lad and soon had the machinery of the de
partment at work to try and do something
for Lawrenc. The wires were kept hot for
a few hours before any definite facts could
be learned about the boy. The agent at
Tropico reported that the boy had been
put off the train for trying to beat his way
and that the manager of the company had
said the boy had been following them from
San Diego.
This report made it look bad for Law
rence's ability as a teller of the truth, but
when Wm. Rowan, a porter at Bob Kern's
saloon, called and said that he hadTleard
the women of the troupe calling for the lit
tle boy at the depot and expressing fear
that he had been left, Lawrence's stock
took an upward Jump.
Later in the afternoon Chief Glass re
ceived a dispatch from the manager of the
troupe at Santa Barbara stating that the
boy had never had anything to do with
them, hut had followed them from River
side, his home. Then the chief lost interest
and decided to notify Sheriff Jo/Inson to
come and take home the black little An
Captain Young of the Santa Barbara
Arrested in San Pedro
Chinese Inspector Putnam captured the
sloop und her officers that are suspected of
having brought ashore the fifteen China
men arrested Thursday for being Illegally
in the country. The vessel ls a gasoline
sloop of about five tons' burden, known as
the Pastime, though there ls no name on
her. The captain's name is Herbert Young,
who home Is in San Diego. Young Is said
to be of good family and one of the heirs
to an estate estimated at $86,000. the father
having recently died. Young commanded
the gasoline launch Santa Barbara, that
was familiar to summer residents at Cata
llna and later at Long Beach and Terminal
island. He admits landing ten white men
at Anaheim, but denies all knowledge of
the Chinamen.
He put ln to San Pedro, sold the sloop
to Capt. Amesbury yesterday morning, arid
then came to Los Angeles, presumably to
get his money for the Chinese. When he
returned to San Pedro Inspector Putnam
was waiting for him, and he was at once
arrested, brought back to this city and
lodged in Jail. This ls tha second capture
of boats and officers engaged In Illegally
landing Chinese that Officer Putnam has
made since last May.
Sausages Made of Horse Meat
Germany has imported nearly 400 horses
from the United States, the cheapset ones

held ln such high esteem by epicures.
Two Men Arrested on Suspicion of
Grand Larceny
Officer Talamantes is keeping up his
record as the champion detector of cattle
thieves, and he appears to have added the
accomplishment of being able, to locate
wholesale chicken pilferers as well.
On the night of February 16th a cow be
longing to F. B. Alderson was stolen from
a lot on Washington street, near Alham
bra avenue. Three nights later a calf, the
property of A. M. Nolms, was led away
from 437 Adobe street, and on the 21st of
last month Mrs. Alexander of Yale street
lost thirty chickens and two turkeys.
Officer Talamantes has been at work on
the cases, and yesterday swore to com
plaints against Joe Cassulo and Robert J.
Brock well, charging them with grand
larceny. Both men, the officer states, ad
mitted to him having taken the various
live stock. Cassulo was arrested Thurs
day night in this city, while the capture of
Brock well was not effected until Friday.
Brockwell ran a chicken ranch at Rariona,
and the officer drove to his place. Tala
mantes told Brockwell that he wanted to
buy some eggs, and when Brockwell was
not on his guard placed him tinder arrest.
A Reckless Horseback Rider Causes a
Bad Accident
On Main street near the corner of Adams
an Insurance man by the name of Wake
was run down and painfully Injured by a
reckless rider last evening about C oclock,
as he was on his way home upon his wheel.
Walte was riding southerly and, as he
neared the corner of Adams three youths
on horseback, who had been riding down
Adams street, dashed down upon him and
one of them rode clear over him.
The unfortunate wheelman was hurled
to the pavement and rendered, unconscious.
A gash several Inches long was out ln his
forehead and the horse either stepped
upon or kicked him in tho breast, possibly
inflioting internal injuries. The wheel was
wrecked. Waite was picked up and
into the drug store at Twenty-nfth and
Main streets, where he was restored to con
sciousness and then sent home. His in
juries while painful are not considered dan
The Rivensjde Confidence Men Picked
Up a Pot of Money
The alleged mine swindlers, Clay and
Jackson, who flew high at the Van Nuys
hotel last week, seem to havo made a haul
of much more than the $500 mentioned in
the complaint against them. It ls a matter
of report quite well founded that the two
confidence men got a large sum of money
from Sheriff Johnson of Riverside county,
who ls a mine owner, and other parties ln
Riverside. An authority puts their loot at
a couple of thousand dollars. Several of
their victims are so much ashamed of the
easy way they were worked that they do
not Intend to make any fuss about their

Old Confederates Ready to Fight
The Mississippi executive ofTicers have
received a barrel of letters from all over
the state proffering services ln case ot
war with Spain, and, strange as it may
seem, many of these letters are from gray
and grizzled Confederate veterans, from
men who might be supposed to have had
an elegant sufficiency of this sort of thing
away back yonder In the early sixties. One
of tho state officers says: "I do not want
to be quoted, but you may state that I
have received scores of letters from men
and organizations offering their services
to their state and country, and the most
remarkable part of It all ls that the dim
Jority of these letters are from did men-*
men who fought for the south during the)
war."—New Orleans Times-Democrat
An Ohio minister objects to skating on)
the ground that it has a tendency to pre*
jnote backsliding.
