Mb TURKS MARCH ON CITY Their Large Army Now Visi ble From the Outskirts of the Capital City, FANATICS CONTINUE TO LSSACRE CHJUSTIAX9 Walla Walla, April 21. Thirteen business houses of Walla Walla were victims of a wholesale swindling game last Saturday afternoon when they cashed bogus checks presented by a stranger giving the name of C. S. Cole and signed by J. M. Rayburn for am ounts ranging from $5 to $18. Three other business houses also cashed checks presented by the same man, but because the smooth stranger had deposited $54 to the account of J. M. Rayburn In the Farmers' Savings bank they obtained their money, their checks coming Into the bank ahead Jof the unlucky thirteen. A strange feature of the bold fraud perpetrated on the thirteen Walla Walla business men is that each of the worthless checks Is numbered with the fatal 13." The fraudulent operations of the mysterious Cole came to light yester day morning when the checks which were fell made payable to the Farmers Savings bank began to come in. With the exception of two checks written $5 and $7 respectively, the remaining cheeks were all for $18. Police arc Notified. The police were notified of the wholesale swindling game manipulat ed by Cole yesterday as soon as the checks were found to be worthless, and nre prosecuting the search to lo cate the stranger, but as the man has nearly two days start, they have not much hope of effecting his capture. Posing as a laborer, and roughtly dressed, Cole entered each one of the thirteen stores, and made small pur chases, presenting a check in pay ment and saying that it was his week's wages. The checks were all signed by J. M. Rayburn in favor of Cole, but inquiry thus far fails to reveal any persons living In this vicinity of this name. A man whom the bank offi- ials say gave his name as Rayburn, but whom it Is now believed is the ime person who pased the worthless hecks under the name of C. S. Cole, came to the bank the first part of last cek and deposited $54 to the account of J. M. Rayburn. I s GROWING FIERCER HILL AND ST.
