Charging that he, with other officers of his bank, deliberately aided and abetted W. E. Schricker, a bank* rupt banker at La Conner, with receiving deposits, knowing at the time that the bank was about to fail, warrants were iwued this morning by Prosecutirtg At torney Brawley at Mt- Vernon for the arrest of Jacob Furth, chairman of the board of directors of the Seattle National bank, head of the local traction monopoly, and of several other large corporations. The warrants issued today specifically charge Furth and E. W. Andrews, president of the bank; R. V. An keny, cashier, and Attorney Daniel Kelleher with joint conspiracy in "aiding and abetting W. E. Schricker to receive deposits knowing that the W. E. Schricker Sl Co. bank was insolvent" Schricker was arrested shortly after bis bank failed, last April and wis charged by direct information of accepting de posits after he knew the bank would fail. Since then, he has practically confessed to his part of the conspiracy in sworn deposition on file in the King county courts. I hese depositions were taken in civil suits brought by depositors against the Se attle National bank. In the depositions, Schricker seriously im plicates Furth and the other officials of the bank. According to the information in the hands of Prosecuting Attorney Brawley, the Seattle bank learned some time before the IConner bank closed its doors that it was bankrupt. Schricker owed the Seattle National bank approximately $150,000. Instead of facing the music, Furth and his bank, it is charged, determined to get their money back at the expense of other de}H>situr* of the Schricker bank. The alleged con spiracy was then framed. Their scheme, according to Brawley, was to back Schricker sufficiently to «' v e his bank the outward appearance of entire ' security and'solvency. The farmers in Skagit county, they knew, would soon biKin moving their grain and money would jbe dejioMted in the bank. Schricker. according to this plan, j was to receive the money ami immediately fotward it to the i Seattle National bank. This, says Prosecuting Attorney Rrawley, continued for several weeks until practically the whole of the Schricker loan from the Seattle bankers was paid up. Then, on April 16, the doors of the Schricker bank were allowed to close and the poor depositors were permitted to whistle for their money. The bank had failed in about $300,000. The specific charge against Furth ami hi« a-sociates in con spiracy relates to one particular deposit of $2,569.34 by Otto Kalso. Kalso deposited a check made out in his favor by W. W. Robinson. Seattle grain merchant, for that amount. That was on Saturday, April 13. 'l'he check was deposited with Schricker's bank on that day, and on Tuesday, April 16, on the very day that the bank at l.a Conner failed. Furth's bank in Seattle received the money for Ival-o's check from the Scan dinavian American bank. On the back of this check are found several isignificant endorsements, according to Prosecutor Brawlcy. One is the stamped order by Schricker turning it over to the Furth bank, which reads: "Pay to Seatte National bank, Seattle. Wash., or order. W. H. Schricker & Co., bankers, I.a Conner, Wash." Another indorsement is that of "R. V. Ankeny, cashier Se attle National bank." The most important, however, is "Paid, April 16, l') 12," which shows that the Seattle National bank got the money for the check on. the day that the Schricker bank closed its doors. Prosecutor Brawley has been making a thorough investiga tion of these alleged operations between Furth and the Seattle National bank and the Schricker bank for several months. The warrants will probably not be served on Furth and the other defendants until tomorrow or next day. The trial, unless a change of venue should be taken, would take place at Mt. Vernon. The penalty for the crime charged against Furth and his associates i- either a penitentiary term not exceeding 10 years or a fine not to exceed $10,000. It was impossible to locate Furth or any of his associates today in time to secure a statement from thsm concerning the case.
