A LONG CO.VFIXEMEXT ABOUT TO EXD.
The Trial of the Cue Was the Longest Xrer Held
in the Country.
"William K. Dickerson, sentenced to
prison for ten years for bis part in the
forgery of Millionaire "Whittaker's will,
will be released Saturday. This event re
calls the details of a most remarkable case.
rcrrcixi. telegram to thx DisrATcn.:
Piiix.A.DEi.riiAt Jnly 31. William B.
Dickerson, who was the principal defend
ant in the suits growiucont of the forgery
of millionaire Robert Whittaker's will ten
years ago, and who was sentenced to ten
ears' imprisonment in the Eastern Peni
tentiary, will be released from prison on
Saturday next, after having spent jnst
seven years and 11 months behind the bars.
Two years and one month was the commu
tation he received lor good behavior.
When Dickerson was sentenced he was
also ordered to pay a fine of $1,000, but he
will probably plead insolvency, and In that
way be relieved of that much of his punish
ment. Dickerson, Joel M. Van Arsdalen
and Herman C. Pulte were arrested in 1878
on the charge of having forged the will of
Robert Whittaker, a miserly millionaire
who lived on Sixth street, opposite Wash
ington square. Dickerson was a lawyer
and claimed to hate transacted Whittaker's
TOO MANY WILLS.
When the miser was killed at a railroad
crossing at Holmesburg bis relatives brought
forward for probate a will. They were told
that Dickerson, who was in New York, had
written to the llegistcr to the effect that he
had the latest and trne document. The heirs
went to trim, and he offered to deliver the
paper to them for 100, but it was refused.
Dickerson says they then raised the cry
of forgery and finally sent him to prison.
Be that as it may, the heirs filed a caveat
and one of the most famous will contests ot
the country was begun. Dickerson pro
duced a will, witnessed by Thomas C. Kow
lett and Herman C. Pulte, in which the old
miser left an estate of 900,000 to found a
school for orphan girls on the plan of Girard
William Whittaker, Daniel Sheetz and
A. B. Negus were made executors, but they
were to be subject to the advice and consent
of William It. Dickerson, who was made
solicitor of the estate. The other will left
the estate to the relatives of the dead miser.
The heirs put detectives on the case, who
discovered that Dickerson was in close con
ference with Pulte, J. Wesley Hellings,
Jonathan Schofield, Joel Van Arsdalen and
a famous Western forger named Joseph B.
CHARGED 'WITH CONSPIRACY.
They claimed that the Dickerson will was
forged and Dickerson, Pulte and Van
Arsdalen were arrested, and in October.
1878, indicted for conspiracy to forge the
will. Habeas corpus proceedings were
begun before Judge Briggs, and the bail of
each was brought down to these figures:
Pnlte, 510,000, Van Arsdalen, 58.000, and
Dickerson, $4,000. In the civil proceedings
the Register of Wills 'granted a rehearing,
and afterward an issue to have the case tried
in the Common Pleas was granted.
On April 0, 1879, a settlement was effected
in favor of the heirs, and DicKerson's will
was set aside. Lawyer Furman Sheppard
was taken into the case about that time, and
succeeded in having the verdict set aside.
The trial, which was the longest in the
country, not excepting the Beecher trial,
was begun on January 2G, 1880. John C.
Bullitt, Samuel Dickson, John G. Johnson
and Samuel Pancoast appeared for the
heirs, while the Dickerson party was repre
sented by Furman Sheppard, J. J. Mac
Miller and Maxwell Stevenson. One hun
dred and fiftv witnesses were examined, and
for nearly five months the Judge and jury
listened to the evidence.
TnE heirs win-.
Finally, alter a five days' speech by Mr.
Bullitt, and two three-days' speeches by
.air. oneppara, unage .ainfon delivered a
charge covering 76 pages of printed pamph
let, strongly in favor ot the heirs, and being
out one day, the jury on the Cth of May
gave a verdict for the heirs. The trial cost
nearly 5100,000 and consumed over 8,000
pages of type-written testimony.
In 1881 Dickerson, Pulte and Van Arsda
len were put on trial in the Criminal Court
Tbey were represented bv Aaron Thompson,
F. Amadee Bregy, Isaiah V. Brown, Henry
M. Miller, Louis Bregy and Henry F. Hep
burn. The charges against them were,
first, with executed conspiracy; second, with
unexpected executed conspiracy; third, with
fraudulently making a written instrument,
and fourth, with uttering and publishing it.
Pulte pleaded guilty, turned state's evi
dence and was sentenced to three years im
prisonment, dating from his original incar
ceration, his term thus expiring on October
J, lbel. A motion for a new trial was re
fused, and on September 3, 1881, Judge
Pierce sentenced the other two men to pay a
fine of 51,000 each and undergo an impris
ment ot ten years.
AGREED -WITH HIM.
Dickerson. when he was sent to
was so feeble that his friends though
on the brink of the grave. Prison life, how
ever, kcdii mj nave agreed witn him, and,
although time has told on him, he is really
a far more healthy man now than he was ten
years ago. Van Arsdalen, who seemed
robust and in the best of health, died three
years ago in prison. Pulte is still in this
cityand engaged in building operations.
William E. Dickerson came to this city
from Bucks county in 1837, and was ad
mitted to the bar. He was an active lawyer
and began a successful crusade against the
row offices, which were then charging fees
far beyond the fee bill. In 1850 he was a
reform candidate for District Attorney,
William B. Eefld being the successful can
didate. Two years later Dickerson conducted an
other reform canvass with the Sheriff's
office as the objective point, but again met
with failure, Samuel Allen, the Whig can
didate, bein elected. Dickerson was a
reputable and accomplished lawyer until
he became connected with the Vun Arsda-len-Pulte
Exposition Bonds Booming.
Bonds to the amount of 515,000, were sold
by the Exposition Society yesterday. They
were purchased by several persons, among
them being several subscribers to the mem
bership fund, the very people the society
would like to take them. A double force of
hands has been put on by tne contractors
working in the several departments of the
buildings, and it is expected that much
will be accomplished in the nest two

she said she was Susie Dougherty of 111
Monterey street, Allegheny, had left home
three weeks ago witb a man who had taken
her to a hotel, got her drunk, and locked
her in a room, keeping her there until yes
terday. She said she wanted to go home, bnt was
ashamed to, and as she understood her
parents were offering a reward for her, she
thought if she went to Central station they
could come and find her. As the woman
was well dressed, evidently intelligent and
slightly intoxicated, the officer took her
down to the station. Here she told a some
what different story, leaving out the state
ment about her being confined in a room,
and said she was the "Allegheny mystery."
She would not tell why she was a mystery,
but intimated that the near future would
develop something startling with which she
A call was made at 111 Monterey street,
and while none of the Dougherty family
could be seen, a neighbor corroborated the
girl's story as far as it related to her dis
appearance, though no one had heard of the
offered reward nor thought anything of her
absence, as it was said she was in the habit
of leaving home for uncertain periods.

"About two years ago, after suffering
for nearly two years from rheumatic
gout, being able to walk only with great
discomfort, and having tried various
remedies, including mineral waters,
without relief, I saw by an advertise
ment in a Chicago paper that a man bad
been relieved of this distressing com
plaint, after long suffering, by taking
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I then decided to
make a trial ot this medicine, and took
it regularly for eight months, and am
pleased to state that it has effected a
complete cure. I have since had no re
turn of the disease." Mrs. E. Irvinjr
Dodge, 110 West 125th St., New York.
" One year ago I was taken ill with
inflammatory rheumatism, being con,
fined to my house six monthsi I came
oat of the sickness very much debili
tated, with no appetite, and my system
disordered in every xtaf. I commenced
using Ayer's Sarsaparilla and began to
improve at once, gaining in strength
and soon recovering my usual health.
I cannot say too much in praise of this
well-known medicine." Mrs. L. A.
