Er&, of the Frenzied Financier R JOHN C. IIKLL. |KOKNT events In P h lladelphlu and Chicago have shown that thut wrecking of bank* and the robbing of safe deposit vaults by men who go around with burglars' tools, masks and re volvers are not hulfus touch to lie feared as the ruining of financial Institutions by men looked Upon aa pillars of ooclety. It was the fiat rlch-iptlck Idea which proved the Nemesis of Banker l'aul O. Htensland of Chicago, of Banker Frank K. Hippie end "Frensled Financier" Adolph Mogul of Philadelphia and of Hanker Frank Bigelow of Milwaukee The Mllwau keo Qualifier erred through the faults of his son. who plunged Into specula tive schemes ami drugged his father from the path of safe ami conservative finance to tliut of crime, ruin and a felon's cell. Hippie ntul Steuslitml Isitti etarted right uud up to certain stages of th elr respective careers seem to have pursued lives of lionesty and Integrity. Then the temptation to embark In projects promising big returns came, and they took the unJustlQahle risks involved, leaning on the reputations they bad built up as honest and relia ble men to obtain the supisirt of others for hnsardoes enterprises. In Hippie's C«ae religion and philanthropy were uaed as a cloak to hide doings which, however much softer terms might its iv ed. were nothing less than swindling.

Ills waa the oase of a good mau gone wrong and lad wrong by a man with whom, t; Bight have been auptioaed, a couserv., tlva financier, n man witn a reputation to maintain, would have had nothing to do. District Attorney John C. Bell, wh® Ik prosecuting the survivin'; wreckers of the Ileal Estate Company of Philadelphia, declared In court that he could prove that Hippie, Segal oh I those cognisant of their doings were engaged In a conspiracy and that as a I result of their acts more than $5,000, ! IJUO wus abstracted from the institution ! for the use of one man. Tills was Me gal, who, us a director of the eouipan; put It. seemed to have hypnotized the president. Segal's career was meteor Twenty years ago he wus a recent h, migrant from Austria, speaking broke i English and working 'over a boili.i . soap caldron in a cellar In a tenement district. The tnveutlou of a new proc ess for waxing paper yielded him $"o, <100. This gave him n start in bus I ness, uud bis persuasive manner enabled him to borrow money to any extent de sired for all kinds of visionary proj ecta. He built a sugar refinery for the purpose of selling it out to the augur trust nud succeeded lu doing s>, mak ing about $1,000,000 on the deal. Later be tried the same game again, but this time could not sell and got left with the refinery on his hands. It is said he once overdrew his account at Hippie's hank $U0,t>00, but Hippie, being tnex trieably Involved In Segal's schemes, had to honor the check. After Hippie's suicide his family found a hastily scribbled note, which read: "No one to blame but myself. Segul got all the money. 1 was fooled Into lending It to him. thinking his business good." The dead hank president was a plodding lawyer for years, and his reputation for integrity and safe methods led him to be made the custodian of muny trnst funds, Including those of church es mid charitable Institutions. Out wardly lie was so highly moral that nobody suspected him cnpuble of do log a wrong thing, and when his rail came It carried misfortune to many in nooent persona with It. Reallstio Acting-. Laat evening Uncle Josh Spmoeby presented himself at the Auditorium uud pleased a (lacked house. The cast was strong and there was a heavy run of comedy throughout the play, that kept the andieuoe convulsed witli laughter. The work of B«rt Walker, iui Hans Von Bottlemcyer, a dutch farm haud, was good, and he com pletely captured the house with his song on the suicide of the miller's j duugther. Wm. Lee as Uncle Josh J carried his part su e osfully and por- j trayed to real life, the down east j farmer and lumberman. The mill scene waa probably the i best ever witnessed in the city, for it was the first time timbers had ever beeu out on the stage with a real saw such as is used In the mill. During this see tie when the vllliau placed his former wife on the timber and started the machinery, people gasped, but when tlie timber began to run into the saw, and the saw slowly ate its way through until It almost touched the fair woman's neck, before Uncle Josh entile to her rescue, there were more sighs, and the face* of many blanche,I at this realistic scene.
