Fay Hawes, Dewey and May flower Camps Have Joint Installation. SHORT S47.C0O FOUR YEARS MRS. C. W. HAWES IN CHARGE f i ol J. F. I'tterback. the embezzling cashier of the Sigourney (It.vva) Sav ings bank, li suicided last week, carried accounts with three Daven port banks the 1'iiion Savings, the Citizens National and the Iowa Na tional banks. The Davenport bank-, however, will lose nothing by I'tter lmckV illicit transactions and tlie en tire loss for his mis lecds will fall iipoi the bank with which he was connected. The dead cn-h:er was for more thnn four years ahle to conceal si defalcation of ?47.00o or more with out even raising a -'!sp;cion against his integrity. It ha just come to licht that when 1'tterbark committed suicide he left :i letter in which he explained that his defalcation was wholly due to losses sustainel on the Chicago ho;ird of trade during the Phillip corn deal four years afro. Since that time he had never swerved from the strict path t f rectitude except to manipu late the bock so as to conceal his fa Ication. Hank Kxaralner Explain. Ifctvid II. McK're. state bank exam iner for thai di-tri"t. inspected the 1 ank. Mr. McKce's account of the mai.ner in which I'tterback manipu lated the books is interesting. That the cashier was never defected be fore was due to his wonderful mem ory which cnabied him to rcca'l all entries he had made with a view of hiding the defalcation, and return to these entries and a train alter them to prevent detection when reports came in f rt m the banks with which Ihe Sigourney institutiio !id business, liis undoing was the result of failure to recall that he had made the books show that the "Msroiirney bank had a credit i f $10.ono with the 1'iiion Sav ings ba'ik of ll'iveliport. Purely by mistake he drew a draft on that in stitution. It wenl to protest for lack if funds and was returned to another Sigourney bank for collection. When oilier employes of I'lterback's bank heard of thi they evpresscd surprise In him. lie replied that he would rush right over and "fix it. I'liere is l,n need of fixing it." was Ihe reply. "We have $1U.(H)I) on depo-it there." Hut I'tterback insisted upon "fixing" it, and this aroused sii-jiicion. It. F. Stockman, one f the direc tors, then visited Chicago and Daven port, and discovert'! that Ihe liauk there inio'e a different showing from what the Siirourney books indicated. This was followed by calling a meet ing of the bank ilircctur at which the cashier was summoned to appear. Instead of complying, he wrote the farewell letter arid committed sili- i.'c Man of ,'silutljr" ChurHt-tt-r. "Ha. I it been anv other than a man of such saintlincss of character." said Mr. McKee. "my suspicion might have liecii iiroiised lining my previous ex aminations of the institution. Hut any little irregularity could easily be ex t'iliued by I'tterback to the satisfac tion of any one. for he probablv had one of the best reputations in that county. Had the state provided for reconcilement if accounts with the corresponding banking institutions, the defalcation would have been soon er detected. A it is. it was an t ay matter for I'tterback to hide his 'ef a lea tin.
