Li Alleged to Have Fleeced Victims
' out of $2,000,000
Montreal, June 9 :-rThe trial " has
commenced here of Chas. D. Sheldon,
the so-called "blind pool wizard",
whose get-rlch-qulck methods of fin
ance are said to have cost Canadians
many thousands of dollars. The
charges on which he Is being tried
are those of embezzlement. He Is
alleged to have fleeced his vktlms
out of sums aggregating $2,000,000.
So far as Is known here he is practi
Sheldon's operations in Montreal
began about three years ago when he
opened an office and carried on an In
vestment and brokerage business, ad
vertising extensively. For a time, It
is'sald, he pat from 20 to 50 per cent
on the Investments monthly, and in a
short time had money pouring Into his
office from all parts of Canada. Agents
were employed' In many towns and
cities to solicit and collect money for
hlra on a 10 per cent commission.
Last summer the newspapers be

and an expose 6t his methods followed
Sheldon maintained that he was do
ing a legitimate business and offered
to Bubmlt his books to the crown at
torney for complete Investigation. On
Oct. 13 he suddenly fled from the city
