Counterfeiting? of Slgnatnrcs Dates
Back to 1906, bat Nature of Vouch
er Recently Learned.
VANCOUVER, Wash.. May 7. (Spe
cial.) Clever forgers have obtained at
least $1000 by forging warrants on
School District No. 80 at Orchards. The
forgeries have recently been discov
ered, althoug.i some of the warrants
were made out in 1906, 1907 and 1908.
Most of them were presented to the
Vancouver National Bank and cashed.
Later they were taken to the County
Treasurer's office and resold by the
Treasurer, as there were no funds in
the treasury to cash them. All but
about $350 of the forged warrants have
been cashed by the County Treasurer.
The names of the three Directors of
the school district were cleverly falsi
fied. These warrants were kept for a
number of years before they were
taken to the County Treasurer for reg
istration when they began to draw in
terest. In some cases the warrants
were kept five or six years before they
were presented for registration. The
warrants were drawn for $100 each.
County Attorney Blair and Sheriff
Biesecker have been working on the
case, but have found no clew yet that
promises to lead to the discovery of the
In 1909 the law was changed to re
quire warrants to be made out in dupli
cate, so that the County Auditor may
have a check on all warrants issued.
The forgeries were on the old forms
and no duplicates were-kept.
