Geo. T. Howard, the Manager, Missing
Since Saturday Evening.
Geo. T. Howard, nroorietor of the
Red Fsont, haa gone from Oreuron Citv
and there are many anxious creditors
here who mourn bis departure. Mr
Howard disappeared laet Saturday and
up to the present time his whereabouts
are not known.
M. Michael, cf Baker City, who a few
monthB ago was in business here, came
over Saturday. He held a note against
Howard lor goods sold him when he
closed out his business here, for $19o0.
tie came to Oregon City with the pur
pose of seeing Mr. Howard and arrang
ing about the note, lie waited until
Wednesday morning on being informed
that Howard was out of town and would
not be back for a day or two and then
had an attachment issued on the store.
Tbe stock of good was locked up by tbe
nuerm penoiiig some sort oi an agree
ment with the creditors. The Latour-
ettes weie retained by Michaels and
rortiand creditors as attorneys.
, It was only a short time until It be
came known hat the $1900 note was but
a small part of the liabilities of Mr.
Howard, in Oregon City alone he owes
creditors Bums aggregating four or five
thousand dollars, while wholesalers in
Portland and San Francisco are said to
be numerous. Tbe total liabilities of
the firm are variously estimated at be
tween five and ten thousand dollars.
Probably the latter figures would be
nearer the correct ones.
Afler Howard left and up to the time
of the enforced closing, Mr. Howard's
wife had charge of the store.
Just what the assets of the firm are it
is impossible at this hour to state.
Some aay that the stock of goods is
worth four or five thousand dollars, but
tloit unO'-r a forced sale it would not
bring iiioie tlidU thirty per cent of its
It is presumed that the reason Howard
l it was that I e had obtained money
from various parties by giving checks
when he had no funds in the bank to
meet them. Altogether these checks
will not amount to quite 1)00. If the
parties to whom the-e checks were
given choose tbey could proaecute him
lor obtaining money under false pre
tenres. Nearly all the parties who h Id
these checks, however, nave agreeq that
they will not prosecute but prefer to take
their chances on getting the money if
he should return. '
Just where Mr. Howard is, is a myst
ery. He was reported to nave gone
down on the lower Columbia on a pleas
ure trip, but tbe consensus of opinion
now is that he js In 13 ri lieu Columbia.
Geo. T. Howard was for a number of
y ears connected with the Red Front
Trading company s a salesman. Later
he nurchaaed the stock of that company
and began business for himself, His
store was known as the Red Front, and
is tbe fartheit clothing Btore
north on Main street. He has been
liberal in this expenditures but hit
business ability has been questioned by
some. It is said that he frequently gave
checks several days in advance, thus
discountins the future. He is a notary
public and did coueiuerable business
along that line.
