near Fort Dodge last July he is accused
of having, sollected several . hundred
dollars of church funds, borrowed small
sums from his members and friends
and disappeared, leaving a , wife and
young babe. He turned up in Portland
last. April,. And presented to the Port
land presbytery a church letter from
the Fort Dodge presbytery, apparently
signed by the moderator and clerk, stating-,
that ;' he. had. been honorably dis
missed from that presbytery to tha Ore
Being a man of pleasing address and
unquestioned ability, Wingert wss at
once recommended to the Presbyterian
at Tillamook and was immediately en
gaged as pastor.' After his departure
for his new. charge, the officers of the
Portland presbytery began to hear of
numerous sums of money that he bad
borrowed from local ministers during
his brief stay in this city snd bis ap
parent unwillingness to repay tha same.
An investigation was , instituted by
Rev. E. M. Sharp of tha Mount Tabor
Presbyterian church, who wrote a letter
of inquiry to the officers of tha Fort
Dodge presbytery and received in reply
tha information that the church letter
presented by . Wingert to tha Portland
presbytery was a forgery, that ha had . '
deserted his wife and child and bad :
seriously - embarrassed his church, by
appropriating about 100 . of church
funds in addition to leaving a cloud
of unpaid debts.- "
