John K. Robley-mill-Tyrone Daily Herald-p.4-28 Jan 1892 - Vuder Arrttt for Forger?. For several months...
Vuder Arrttt for Forger?. For several months past the Tyrone Milling Company in which J. M. Ilimes a J). a a 35 true and J. K. Robley, who came here from Maple ton, were the partners, have conducted conducted their business as wholesale dealers dealers in grain flour, and feed in the mill built for them a (joining F. D. Beyer & Go's planing mills. On Tuesday notice was given by Mr. Robley that the partnership partnership had been dissolved by mutual consent on January 20, and that he had retired from the firm. The senior member member of the former firm is now at his boarding house suffering from injuries mysteriously received, and under police surveillance, the result of a forgery which he perpetrated some time ago. In July last Himes offered his personal personal note for $1500 to Cashier D S. Kloss at the First National Bank, on which he desired to secure the money. Tne note bore the name, as indorser, of W. II, Rex, a wealthy resident of Mapleton, Mapleton, and as the genuineness of the signature was not qu'.stioned, the cash was promptly paid to Ilimes. Mr. Ilex's signature was,however,a forgery. Tho note, on becoming due, was renew, ed by Illmcs, and the forged indorse, men I was repeated. In fact the note and the forgery were renewed two or three times. Last Tuesday Cashier Kloss learned that Mr. Rex had not signed his name to the note at all, and he proceeded at once to take action against the offender. A warrant was issued against.). M. Ilimes for forgery, and he was searched for on Tuesday night, but could not be found. On Wednesday morning however however he appeared at his boarding house, apparently suffering severely. He bad spent the night at his mill, and explained explained that he had been injured by a fall on the icy pavement on Blair street the night before,' had managed to get to Lhe mill.andhad then found himself unable unable to go to hia boarding house. He was seriously injured internally, and has since been confined to his room under the physician's care. Yesterday Hirnes was placed under arrest, and since that time he has been under constant police surveillance. His story of the manner in which he was hurt is not plausible. It is thought that he had foreseen on Tuesday that his sin would find him out and, in his endeavor to escape the law, he probably attempted to board a train on Tuesday night, and was thrown therefrom in some way. This is a more likely explanation explanation of his injury, and is most generally credited. He is improving in condition and his hurt is not so serious aa '.vua lit fit at feared. Sheriff Hughes was in town yester day and Cashier Kloss secured an at tachment for hi* bank against the mill property of the offender. Tho bank thus fully secured against pecuniary loss. Mr.Kloss is always courteous and obliging to his customers and is evei ready to accommodate patrons to tin fullest extent consistent with safi banking; but with evil doers he is jus as unyielding, and once u miscreant attempts to secure unlawful advantage of hia institution, that offender is sure to be visited with the fullest penalty fo his act. The forgery is plainly evulen and Himes will receive his punishmen for it. The Orm had apparently been doing : paying business since establishing here Mr. Himes had been the business man aner tind had a good reputation an< credit in Tyrone. Mr. Robley is a gentleman of integrity who for ly bent and has it s clot in that my tbe f o ni! ind if iff ,o Lty A to formerly retired from association with his partner partner at the hitter's demand a few days ago. It is likely that Ilitnes had MO intention to defraud when he coin- committed the fargery, but unwisely did the act with the intsntion of making making the Himunt good without his unlawful means of raising the money being discovered. i I
