ICH DAMAGING EVIDENCE Km Teller of First National | Bank of Dover Testifies tn | Kenney Trial—Tells of Many Fraudulent Acts. 7 er P r The United States Government in the flat of Senator Richard R. Kenney interdsy, produced evidence to show >Jna Senator Kenney conspired with to rob the First Na filliam N. Bo ( onal Bank, of ver. A It was the Government's day. Sitting "with his face to the jury, Mr. Kennev heard the damaging statements which e are so likely to place him behind prison FfBars. I Conspiracy, as charged in the new indictment against Senator Kenney was the theme ofthe prosecution. It was shown how the dependent bad an agree ment with Mr. Boggs whereby the latter was to protect Kennev's checks, to carry them on the funds of the First National Bank, of Dover, until redeemed bv Mr. Kenney. The Government ad mitted that the defendant finally paid the checks, but there remained, as shown by the evidence, the fact that Mr. Ken my bad knowingly used the bank's moneys for a period of time at least. A most remarkable incident was brought to light by the Government witness, William N. Boggs. It was the fact of a United States Senator advising the defaulter to flee to Cuba in view of the >\ subsequent freeing of that 16? bring about a change the extradition laws of that country which would exempt Mr. Boggs from an attempt at capture, for the robbery of the First National Bank of Dover. This testified by Mr. Boggs. District Attorney Vandegrift called N. Boggs to the stand at the opening of the Circuit Court yesterday morning and the latter occupied the stand throughout . the day. Mr. Vandegrift finished with the witness late yesterday afternoon and it being so late Mr. Bird for the defense, did not consume but a half hour in the cross-examination. He will finish to is,-''! "When did vou first begin to misuse the funds of the bank?" "In 1893; then I began to issue checks to Senator Ken ney when he had no funds in the bank. Subsequently I called his attention to _ trouble, and lie said that lie could not help it, as he had no monev. This state of affairs continued until the exposure came. Senator Kennev always promised s, to make good his shortage by a cash de ' posit, but he never kept his promise." "Did you cash a check for $900 drawn 1 by Senator Kenney to Thomas Clark in ; 1893?" asked Mr. Vandegrift. "Yes, 1 I j „ v ' 8 ' fact that th island woul in wss w. day. r ' The court room was crowded through out the entire proceedings. 8enator -Kenney was accompanied by his coun iael, Mr. Biggs and Mr. Bird, bis secre tary, G. J. Hart, and Alexander M. Daly, of Dover, wiio were all with him Mon day. I judge Bradford had no sooner taken his teat before counsel became involved in an argument that continued for over an hour. It was the result of a notice served on tiie defense Monday night by the Government to produce all checks, drafts tn l notes drawn by Senator Kenney on the First National Bank be tween certain dates in the spring and fall of 1896. Counsel for tbe accused Senator maintained that the notice was not spe cific enough, which was sustained by tile Court. William N. Boggs, former teller, was then called to tho stand. He said lie was teller of the First National Bank of Dover from January, 1891, to May 29, 1897. ! "Did Mr. Kenney have sufficient funds / in the bank at that time to meet tiie check?" "He did not. I doctored the accounts to cash the check. " "What should you have done?" "I should have notified that Mr. Kenney did not have a suffi cient balance on hand to meet the check, and in the course of legitimate business it should have gone to protest." "How did you fix up the, accounts in order to hide the manner of cashing the checks?" "I changed the depositors' slips, taking from some accounts enough to make up an account for Mr. Kenney." "During all this time that yon were using the funds of the Lank improperly did you have any conversation witli Mr. Kenney?" "I did. He promised to make up the shortage in his account." "Did you take Thomas S. Clark into your confidence and tell him that you were embezzling the funds of the bank?" "I did. The shortage was constantly growing and I was becoming afraid." Witness then related his introduction to a gang of gamblers and race track fol lowers by some of Clark's friends, and the subsequent embezzlement of more money from the bank. "Did you ever tell Senator Kenney that you were afraid that the directors were ■ going to examine your accounts?" ■ ( "Yes; in December, 1895. ■ Mr. Kenney's house. ■ the bank had heard that I had played ■ poker, and I had been told that they ■ were going to institute an investigation. ■ That night I went to Senator Kenney's ■ house and told him I was in a dilemma, K and that os a last resort had come to ask ■ his advice. 1 told him that the shortage K in the funds of tiie bank had grown to K such an extent that unless I was assured ■ that Clark and others would make up K the shortage they owed to the bank I ■j, would make a confession to the Board of ■ Directors. He said lie could not advise B me until he saw how matters stood. I B told him that as the amount of theshort B age was large, it would have to be re the bank officials I went to The directors of turned gradually go as not to excite sus picion." ''Did you tell him that you had the checks deposited and drawn by Clark, Cotter, Ford and others at your home?" ''I did. He asked me it I had been to see Clark about the matter, and 1 said I had. Then he said that he did not see why the shortage should not be made S ood. He told me to see Clark and scare ilm into making good the money he owed the bank. At his request I sent a note to Clark, requesting him to meet me at Mr. Kenney's house that night. Clark did not put in an appearance. Mr. Kenney told me that I was nervous and advised me not to worry about the in vestigation of my accounts." Witness then described how he had been summoned before the Board of Directors of the bank on the following day. He said that he had frankly ad mitted to the directois that he had played poker, adding that he had not used the funds of the band in his gambling trans tne directors ad actions. He said that vised him to stop playing poker. "They believed that I was honest," he said, "and did not investigate my ac counts." Witness then related a meet ing with Senator Kenney on the day fol lowing. "What took place at the meeting?' told Mr. Kenney that the directors were not going to examine my accounts, and he said, 'I thought so. ¥ou are too nerv ous.' " I "On and after January, 1895, was Sena tor Kenney aware of your true rela tions with the bank?" "He was. I told him all about the shortage in my ac counts." "During 1896 did yoq carry checks for him?" "idid." "What were they?" "I carried for him a series of checks drawn in favor of Cuth bert & Company by Senator Kenney in for shares of the Bay State Gas "V^hat was the total amount of the checks?" "About $5,000." "Did Mr. Kenney have sufficient money on deposit in yonr bank to meet the checks?" "No, sir." "Did you pay them witli the funds of the bant?" "Yes." "Was Mr. Kenney aware of the man ner in which the checks were being cashed?" "Yes, sir; I often told him that I was afraid that the shortage would be found out." "Why was it necessary for you to cash Mr. Kenney's checks by using the funds of the First National Bank of Dover; do you know?" "Yes, sir; in our talks about the affairs of the bank Mr. Ken ney told me that he was in financial dif ficulties by reason of his heavy specula tions in gas stocks." "Did you handle checks other than the ones drawn by Mr. Kenney in favor of Cuthbert & Co. ? checks drawn in favor of William G. Cotter, of Philadelphia, given by Cotter to William a scries of transactions growing out of a building operation in Philadelphia." "How did Mr. Kenney figure in these transactions?" "He allowed me to use his name as a convenience. Cotter had trouble in getting his check put through the banks in Philadelphia, and I was or dered to close liie account. Then Mr. Kenney allowed me to use his name." "Why didn't you give your own check to Cotter?" "I was afraid that my check would excite suspicion. Then Mr. Kenney allowed me to use his name." "How were these checks paid?" "Out of tiie funds of the bank." The witness was then shown a check i for $1,650, drawn in favor of Samuel L. Shaw, sheriff, by Mr. Kenney in 1896, and asked to explain the history of the check. lie said that he had induced Mr. Kenney to buy in a farm for him on mf ' rt S a n e - 1° payment h « had t0 ! d „ Mr ,'.,, „t°. he iLriff c * ,ec ' £ > a , a .^ lng ',, \ s >f a t ^ a , t ,_ t f. ets credit on tiie books at our bank for . i i n : f i ^ fnr./i B Was that check paid out of tho funds 0 * 3 . an * < -.

Be cause" Mr. Kenney told Cooper that he had better get out of wheat and buy Bay State Gas stock. He told Cooper to see me and let me in. Soon afterward I got one of Cooper's checks. It was in pay ment for Bay State GaB stock. Cooper's first purchase of tiie stock was made on May 7, 1806. It amounted to $500. Both Kenney and Cooper told me to arrange for tiie payment of Cooper's checks." In answer to other questions witness said that the books of the bank were ex amined twice a year by a Government bank examiner and twice a year by the Board of Directors. He said that in June, 1896, just before the visit of the bank examiners, it became necessary to have Mr. Kenney deposit the draft drawn on a bank in North Carolina for $3,500. He said that Mr. Kenney was credited with the amount of tiie draft, which was returned marked "Protested." Mr. Kenney and himself had managed to smootli tiie matter over. Mr. Kenney had raised some money, and he (wit- ( ness) had helped him out of the diffi culty by depositing $1,000 to his credit.. "Where did you get the$l,000?" asked Mr. Vandegrift. "I used the funds of the bank," replied tiie witness. Recess was then taken until 2.30 p. m.

Director Simmons, of the Street and Sewer Department, Ac UNJUSTLY SCORED THE PRESS The Members Were Disappointed at the Small Attendance on the Part of Citizens—Bills Passed and Other Business Transacted. The sidewalk ordinance which caused so much discussion among the citizens lately was withdrawn by its author, Wil liam Simmons, with the consent of the other members of the Street and Sewer Department, Professor William A. Pratt and Ayres S. WebBter, at the regular meeting of the Board last evening. Mr. Simmons' action came as a great surprise to the citizens who were present., j The sidewalk ordinance designated cement or flagstone as the material for sidewalks within the area bounded by the south side of Front street, the south side of Sixteenth, the south side of Lom bard and the west side of Broome. Mr. Simmons started the ball rolling by saving that he desired to correct cer tain things that has been said. He stated that he bad talked over the matter with bui ders and citizens and finally pro mill gated the ordinance which has caused so much dissension. He said he did not get up the oral nance to satisfy any personal whim and had no intention to work a hardship on anyone. The people, he said, had been twisted in regard to what the ordinance really means. He said if a brick or so was broken out or small repairs needed, it would not have been necessary to tear up the whole sidewalk and lay cement or flagsone it was only in case the pave nuent was worn out. He Bcored the press by saying that some newspapers had intentionally mis led the public and had made msinua fi 0 n n il„ a , t !1 n di£ferenttiUle9 notbecominga 8 Heclaimed that on a number of occa cions tiie reporters present had failed to take notes of conversations on important "e s™cirreq"ests^roX7o gl certain mK ii print g He then said.
