Dun $ Co.'s Former Aijent Charge
HE COULD NOT PROCURE BAIL
The Inventor of the Cyclone Pulver
izer Financially Winded -- Arrested
Upon Charge of Having Hypno
tised $220,000 He Advocated
Canadian Annexation and Endorsed
Checks with Equal Ease End of a
New York, 1'ob. 21.
ERASTUS WIMAN, formerly man
ager for R. O. Dun & Co.. mer
cantile agency, tuiider ot the
staten inland Rapi1 Transit
railroad, mi n prominent advocate of
the annexation cf Canada to the
United State", was arretted today
charged with forgeries amounting to
239.000. Ha was arraigned before
Judge Martine, in chambers, in the
general sessions, ami commuted to the
tomls in default of $23,000 bail. Soot:
after the arrest the grand Jury handed
down two indictments charging Wi
man with forgery in the second degree.
The complaint on which the in
dictments were found is a 1-ngthy
one and sets forth that Wfinan
held only a salaried position with
the agency and was unauthon zd
to nse the rann'y of the linn.
The complaint says that the al
leged forgeries and stea'incrs took place
during the year 1888, 1890. 1'Jl and
1892. and up to February, 1893 The
specific charge" of the many alleged
forgeries and embezzlements against
Wiman were two in number. O i i is
that he got a chock for $10,000 from
the cashier of Dun & Co. on the repre
sentation that it eras to pay a bill due
E. W. Bollinger, of New York, by Dun
& Co. for material purchased. After
getting the check it is alleged that he
forged Bullinger's endorsement on the
back and deposited it to his own credit
in the bank. Dun & Co. subsequently
paid Mr. Bullinger his bill.
A PECULIAR DEAL WITH CAMPBELL CO.
The other case charged is that Wi
man got a check for $3,580 to par the
account of the Campbell Printing Press
and Manufacturing company. He then
went to the Campbell company, and
telling them that Dun & Co. were short
of funds, asked them whether they
would like notes for their account in
stead of cash. On Mr. Brower acqniesc
log in this proposition, he made two
notes coTeriog the amount, in his own
name and delivered them to bim. He
then forged the name of Ogden Brower,
treasurer, on the bacic of the check
and appropriated it to his own use.
The complaint goes on to sav : Mr.
Dun first learned of any of Winian's
crimes in the latter part of Febrnary,
1893. Mr. Dun, immediately on the
20th day of February. 193. terminated
his contract with Wiman, dismissed
him from his employ and has never
seen him since. On learning that his
crimes had been detected, Wiman of
fered to transfer to Mr. Dun certain
real estate Interests on St uteri Island of
doubtful value, hut Mr. Dun, learning
that Wioan was insolvent, refused to
accept them or to receive any prefer
ence over his other creditors Wiman
therefore made a formal assignment for
the benefit of his creditors, but his as
sets have amounted to almost nothing.
DUX AND CO WERE TP.NDER-HKAHTKD.
Mr. Dan did not submit the proof of
Winau's crira to the authorities on
first discovering them for several rea
sons. In the first place he was moved
by considerations of sympathy for Wi
nan's family with whom ho had been
on terms of frienship for many years,
and the piteous appeals for mercy
which Winan made to him in a letter.
There was uo signature to the forego
ing complaint, but its authorship is
credited to ex-District Attorney Dj
Mr. Wiman expressed some surprise
at his arrest, and then asked if tnere
would be an opportunity to get bail.
He said he ought to have a lawyer and
would like to bo represented by coun
sel. An tffort was made by friends to
get bail late in the afternoon, but
without snccsss. Neither did Mr
man have counsel when takffn to
general sessions by the defectives.

Mr. Blouut is not condemned for the
reason that Mr. Morgan believes he

Admiral Stanton's Graphic Account of
the Disaster to the Ill-Fated
Warship the Kearsarge
QUARANTINE, N. Y., Feb. 21. Rear
Admiral Stanton ant nineteen officers
and 183 men of the ill fated Kearsnge,
arrived at C'israutine this morning
shortly after 10 o'clock, on the Colon
steamer City of Para, after a teven
days paatage from Co Ion. Admiral
Stantou re i lily talked of the disaster
although carefully avoiding any state
ments that might incriminate anybody
or give a reason for tbe accident.
These, said he, were matters for
the attention of the investigat
ing board. After the frigate
struck it was found that there was
very lit.ii wator under her forward,
and fearing ah" might slip off into
deeper water and sink, a little raft, or
catamaran was launched s snou as it
was light enough to see, aud a kedge
anchor carriad ashore and a hawesr
made fast to hold tho ship upon the
reef. This hnwser was rove through a
pulley and a systematic effort was at
once male to land all hands in a boat
with a line fast to a block wuioh trav
eled on the hawser.
A strong northeast trade wind was
blowing steadily at the time. Tho
boat could carry six men at a time and
consequently it took considerable time
to land all linn, is. novisions, water
carta and uauv'.s to build temporary
shelter aere brought on shore and pre
parations were at once made to erect
sleeping quarters. Under the direction
of the officers men were told off to dif
ferent kinds of work. Sesuieu ai,d
marines contrived impromptu tents
while otheis built fires nnd raide
ready for th cooks. A Well was also
daR and a supply of freah water pro
There was but one accident of a f atal
nature. Fireman Andrew Robbins,
while wading around in the shallow
water, fell into a deep hole and was
drowned, although every effort was
made to sava him. A lieutenant ami
seven men were dispatched to Old
Providence for aid in a life boat and
the remainder of the crew nwaited
succor in comparative comfort.
On tho 10th, juat ten days ater the
accident, the City of i'aru hove in sight
and the work of taking off the wrecked
men at once began. Thus was safely
accomplished without iucident and a
start was at once Blade for Colon.
When last seen tho famous old frigate
was hove down on one side with several
large holes in her bottom.
