ed to Corvallis.
No Doubt of Crimality
But for the fact that Ealston
forget the Bicknell note, it
might be believed that Corvallis
would see . him again, but that
act queers him. Mr. Bicknell
will not lose the $80.40, nor will
Van Cleve lose the amount of
his note if Ralston ' has secured
money on it. The company will
lose the value of . the check Mr.
Bicknell paid Ralston and also
lose the commission paid him for
the policies to be issued to
Bicknell and Vancleve. In a
letter to Mr. Bicknell, the Oreg
on Life admits that it has paid
the full commission on this note,
so all told, Ralston is perhaps
$125 or $150 ahead, if his opera
tions have gone no further.
Both Mr. Bicknell and Mr. Van
Cleve, and others who knew him,
say that he appeared to be any
thing but a real sharper, being
too crude to be an old hand at
the business. Ralston hails from
North Carolina, so he said, and
came here properly credentialed
by the Oregon Life, which does
not deny his official connection.
