Wtn Man la Arrested in Store
While Trying en Kew Salt.
After cashing six alleged forged
checks, purporting to show that a fic
titious Henrich Hueff had worked so
many hours on the Columbia. Highway,
a man. who gave the name of William
Daly was arrested yesterday by Deputy
Sheriff Tennant. Daly was having a
suit tried on In the Brownsville Woolen
Mill store. Third and Morrison streets,
when the deputy sheriff entered. Daly
made a bolt for the door but the deputy
was too quick for him.
When searched by Sheriff Word ten
road checks similar to those alleged
to have been passed by Daly were
found in bis inside coat pocket. All are
made out to Henrich Hueff and all are
signed with the names of a fictitious
timekeeper, O. J. Larsen, and a facti
tious foreman, F. P. Kaster. They are
for S57.50 or S38.50
Although County Clerk Coffey says
these checks are not warrants for
money, merely evidenoe that the man
in whose name they are made out has
worked a certain number of days, and
are not good for their face value until
they have been stamped "audited and
approved" by the County Auditor, they
are generally accepted at banks, storee
and other places of business as cash.
The first check Daly is alleged to
have cashed was accepted at the Moyer
clothing store. Second and Morrison
streets. It Is for S57.50. The cashier
had frequently cashed road checks be
fore and says he saw nothing suspi
cious In this one.' It waa alleged to
be worthless when presented at the
County Auditor's office. How many
places Daly visited Is not known.
