A special telegram from Valley City
in Monday's Pioneer Press tells this
"Rev. Isaac M. Frey, for five or six
months pastor of the Congregational
church of this city, has suddenly left
for parts uuknown. His financial mat
ters are in very bad shape—that is, for
his creditors—he having converted every
thing into cash, beside, it is reported,
taking $150 of church money. Among
the property that was disposed of was
some that was mortgaged He leaves a
wife and three children in this city in
embarrassed circumstances, fiev. Frey
came to Valley City from Washington,
D. C., where he married his present wife
last spring, he being a widower with
three children, and she a .widow with an
equal number, born of a union with a
recently decaased, and, it is understood,
quite prominent Washingtonian. At
the time of the lady's marriage with
Frey she knew but little of him, having
been acquainted with him but a short
time. He earned recommendations
from Michigan, however, and his min
isterial bearing did the rest. At this
time the lady was possessed of the rem
nant of a small fortune, in amount about
$3,000. Out of this she furnished Frey
with money to come to Dakota and sent
him frequent drafts after his arrival here,
and he constantly besieged her for more
money this she refused to send, and
Frey brought her to Valley City, where
she deposited about $2,000 in the First
National bank and took a check therefor,
made payable to herself. To this the
reverend forged his wife's name, drew
the money and left Mrs. Frey and her
children penniless. This action seems
premeditated before he arrived in Dakota
as he left his three children at some point
in the east. Frey is of small stature,
dark complexion, dark eyes, hair slight
ly tinged with nay, and wore, whenlast
seen, a beard of several weeks'growth,
which he will probably cutoff at the first
opportunity. He is about forty years of
age, and has the appearance of a blase
man of the world. His wife fainted up
