Dr. Fairfield. Samuel B. Smith, who lives at No. 18 N street northwest, was arrested this morning on a warrant sworn out by Edward M. Pine, a real 'estate agent at No. 1320 F street northwest, charging lilm with the embez7leraent of various sums ot money. Smith was arraigned before Judgo Miller. and on the motion of Cook & Sutherland, his attorneys, was released on $500 ball, and the case continued until next Wednesday, the 23d Instant. Smith has been employed by Pine for about six months and during that time has served in tlie capacity of a collector for the East Dean wood Land Company, of which Mr. Pine Is tlio general manager. About five weeks ago Mr. Pino was compelled to go to New York on business, and during his absrrce Smith was put in temporary control of the office and collected all moneys due the company, a great deal of which, according to tlie statements made by the proprietor, he has railed to account ror. MB. PINE'S STATEMENT. Mr. Pino was seen by a reporter to-day and made the following statement: "Smith come to me about six months ago and asked for employment. He represented that he had formerly been employed by Howard F. Johnson, the real estate agent, and brought other references. I gave him a position as collector for the East Deanwood Land Company, and It was his duty tomakcpcollectinn ofthemonthly Installments upon lots sold by the company in this suD-dlvlsion. "ior that purpose a book Is given each customer, and the amounts paid by tbem are credited to their account, opposite to which Is attached the signature ot the agent making Ihe collection. About five weeks ago I was compelled to go to New York on a matter of business, nnd left the office under Smith's control, with instructions that he should remit to me in New York the various nnmants collected. "Among other things, I lift him five deeds, which had been executed by the company, and were to be delivered to various parties upon the pn)nient of a certain amount or money. These Smith was authorized to deliver. "My business in New York kept me for a longer time than I expectcdr and needing money I wrote to Smith to remit me all he had collected. I was very much surprised to receive a letter from him a few days later slating that up to that time he bad failed to collect a cent, and stated that the parties had all promised to pay by a certain time when be would send the money. HI8 SUSPICION AROUSED. "I waited a reasonable length ot time and falling to hear from Smith wrote another letter, getting about the same reply that the parties couldn't pay. "Mr suspicions were aroused, so I sent out a numlier of letters to the supposed delinquents and was surprised to get letters from them stating that they "had mid Mr. Smith the sums of money which I had claimed were overdue. I communicated these facts to my attorney in this city and requested htm to take the keys ot tbe office from Smith, and at the sam time wrote to the clerk discharging him and warning him that I did not want to have any further business relations wlta him. "Despite this warning he e-ontinucd to repre-ent himself as my agent, and made other collections, all ot which he appropriated to his own use. I came on to Washington yesterday from New York and determined to have an order issued for bis arrest. I have received a score of letters from various parties since my arrival in the city, all of them claiming to have paid Smith variojs sjms during my absence. "I also have evidence that the man opened several registered letters containing money ilu ring my alisence and extracted the contents of each." Smith was arrested by Detective Boyd early this morning on New York avenue and North Capitol streets and Taken to the police station. He Is a man about forty-five years old and has a wife and two children living In this ilty. PnETTY GENERAL SLUMP. Wnk 3Iarket Was Somewhat of a Surprise to the Speculator. New York. Oct. 19. The stock market after the opening was weak and lower on sales for both accounts. Tbe decline In prices ranged from 3-8 to 1 5-8 per cent, and nearly every stock on the list participated In the downward movement. The weakness of the market was a disappointment to the street, it Laving been expected that the decline in sterling exchange which settles the question of gold exports for the moment and the slump in cotton this morning would have a good effect on stocks. The reverse proved true, however, nnd the share speculation was absolutely without support. Commission houses were without orders and London did but little in our market. Sugar declined 3-4 to 10G 3-4; General Electric, 1 to 36 1-2. MILLER GETS THREE YEARS. Could Not Prove That He Was tho Other Man.
