MATTHES AND SNOW
ARE HELD IN JAIL
W. J. Summers, Also Arrested
for Alleged Bank Swindle,
GRAND JURY TO BE CALLED
Holland Vice Consul Declares Ig
norance of American Methods
Responsible for His Plight.
Accomplices Are Blamed.
In default of ball. J. W. Matthes, lo
cal Vice-Consul for the Netherlands,
-nH Rnhert W. Snow, an alleged accom
plice in committing forgery whereby
the International Mortgage Bans, i
Apeldoorn, Holland, was defrauded ol
large sums, were committed to the
rnnnfr Jnll vesterdav.
w J Summers, arrested on a like
charge, succeeded in raising a JB000
surety bond yesterday and was released
pending action in his .case by the grand
Jury. All three will be taken before
the September grand Jury, which will
be called together next Tuesday by
District Attorney Evans and will begin
work the following day.
Mr. Matthes made a long statement
to Deputy District Attorney Murphy
yesterday. In talking with newspaper
men he attributed his troubles to the
others arrested and their alleged ac
complices. He says he was made a
catspaw cf by those clever enough to
take advantage of him. He admitted,
however, that as notary public he ac
knowledged his own signature in carry
ing out a $5000 Crook County land
deal. , , .
Beyond asserting that he is Innocent
of the charge against him, Mr. Sum
mers had nothing to say. Mr. Snow
says that he is the victim of circum
stances and that the others, particu
larly Matthes, are "passing the buck
to him. He declares it is sought to
tnake him the goat, but says he can
straighten the situation out and show
Just where the blame lies as soon as
he can arrange bail.
Others Blamed by Mr. Matthes.
That his present difficulties grew out
of the fact that he was used by others
was the assertion of Mr. Matthes yester
day He further denied that he has
profited personally by his transactions
with the Apeldoorn bank, but said that
he had been victimized by others
shrewder than himself. He further laid
his trouble largely to his ignorance of
American business methods.
"One man, whose name I do not
care to mention, came to see me
once about a loan," said Mr. Matthes.
He was well recommended and I was
favorably impressed ith him. He
asked me how much commission I was
paid and I told him 1 per cent. He
told me it was not enough and that
he could arrange it so that I would
make more. He proposed that the ad
ditional commissions be split between
"The result was that we made bigger
percentage loans, so that more money
was paid for commissions. I thought
that as long as the mortgages were
below the evident value of the prop
erty the interests of the bank would
Operntor Becomes Bolder.
"This man became bolder as we
went on. He knew I would be the
goat If anything went wrong. He
even went as high as 25 per cent in
eome cases, obtaining this amount
from the borrower as brokerage for
obtaining the loan. This man delib
erately took advantage of my ig
norance of American ways of doing
business in order to enrich himself.
If I had never met him, I would never
bave met the crooked contractors later.
"This man later had me at his
mercv. He made threats to me that if
I did not come through with more
money whenever he wanted, he woulo.
write to the bank in Holland and ex
pose me. When President Bakker was
here, a year ago, our business affairs
were mixed and I wanted to tell him
the real status of the case then, but
thought that if I waited a year and
business conditions Improved our af
fairs would come out all right. On the
contrary, the opposite has happened.
At that time, however, I telegraphed
Mr. Bakker to come back from New
5'ork, when he was on his way home,
but he answered that he could not re
turn. Contractor's Default Told.
"Before this trouble came up, I was
making loans on buildings being
erected by different contractors and
the business went on all right until
J was defrauded by a contractor who
was erecting a number of houses. He
got me to keep paying money to him,
ehowlng me bills that later proved to
be for bouses upon which we had no
mortgage. Later he failed and left
the city with about 200 mechanics
liens against his partly finished houses
end to protect the bank I had to pay
"I was besieged with laborers and
material men who had not been paid.
There was about J25.O0O due and they
looked to me for the money. I realized
that If these liens were foreclosed it
would entail additional loss to the
1 hank and so in order to protect what
' was already invested, it was necessary
to put up about $20,000 additional. I
took over 12 houses, partly completed,
from this contractor with the hope of
putting them in shape to sell or rent
and get the money back.
TTae of Dummies Admitted.
"I discussed the situation with Snow,
who was building houses also and to
whom loans had been made. In order
to get money. I bought vacant lots,
bnow making the arrangements and I
furnishing the money. In order to
make the mortgages available for the
bank we had to use dummies. I paid
Fnow certain amounts to take care of
the bills. A part of this went for
his living expenses. Snow got the
men to sign as dummies."
The books show that Snow got about
164.000 from the Apeldoorn bank and
property deeded back to it by Snow
amounts to about 130.000, say the au
thorities. "Summers came to my office to make
some loans," continued Mr. Matthes.
telling me he had good land in East
ern Oregon, of which there were sev
eral sections. One tract was said to
be worth $8000. and I took his woro
for it. This Is what was known as
the Twltchell tract. This was sold to
Mallory, a Californian. Summers said
he was a good man and would pay the
Interest. Summers valued the farm
lands at three times the amount I
would loan on it and the returns would
cover up the unpaid Interest.
M Ismnnnjcemrnt la Conceded.
"So far as I am concerned. I never
made a transaction In which it was
not my purpose that the money should
go to the bank. It was mismanagement
on my part. I have no doubt, but I
was taken advantage of by people
who knew I was up against it and that
I could be influenced. They knew I
would be the goat.
"Every cent I got In that way was
paid out in the interests of the bank.
I did not benefit personally. I mort-

JOB FINDER IS SOUGHT
COMMITTEE IS ARRANGING
Land Clearing:, Road Building and
Other Work May Be Provided
The first step '.n plans of the city,
county and state to provide work for
the unemployed in Portland next Win
ter Is to be the selection of a secre
tary to represent the City Commission,
the County Board of Commissioners
and the State Board of Control. This
was decided yesterday at a meeting of
the official seasonal employment com
mittee at which the unemployment
problem was discussed at length. At
the meeting were all members of the
City Commission and Rufus Holman,
representing the County Board. Al
though they were notified, the mem
bers of the State Board of Control, of
which Governor West Is chairman, did
not attend the meeting.
Commissioner Brewster, to whom
was referred the matter of proposing
persons for the position of secretary,
reported that he had two men in mind.
One is Captain Andrews of the Salva
tion Army, who has had much experi
ence in the unemployment problem.
Mr. Brewster said he had conferred
with Captain Andrews but the latter
doubted If he would be able to take the
place. He will be urged further.
If his services cannot be secured an
effort will be made to get a man
named Pauley, who was in charge of
the "Hotel De Gink," a refuge estab
lished in Seattle last Winter for the
The plan is to have the city and the
county share in the expense of paying
the secretary a substantial salary. His
work will begin at once. It 1b planned
to have him go into the rural districts
and get land-owners to let contracts
for clearing of land during the Winter.
It would be his duty to work up var
ious plans to be suggested by the com
mittee on employment.
It was decided by the committee that
its function should be not only to fur
nish work for Idle men, but also to
encourage private concerns and indi
viduals to furnish work.
County Commissioner Holman an
nounced to the committee that he ex
pects the county to have money on
hand during the Winter to give work
to men on some of the roads.
