Fearing an Investigation,

Among. Other Things Mis3
: ing Wearer of Cloth De-
Failed to Pay Board cf
Two Months' Standing.
Fearing Immediate exposure at the
hands of his brother ministers of the
Portland" Presbytery, Rev, A. "E. Win
gert, -wha la charged with all sorts ot
financial Irregularities, -wss forced te
decamp from Tillamook. Oregon, leav
ing unpaid debts amounting to several -hundred
dollars. Including a two months'
board bill, a tailor bill, a livery bttt and
about tiSO-in small sums . borrowed
from hie confiding parlshoners.
. From documents In the hands of Rev,
IS. M. Sharp, stated clerk of the Port
land presbytery, ' it appears that tha
Rev. Mr. Wlngerfs operations In thla
state waa mera child's play compared
with' lila performances when' connected
with the presbytery of , Fort Dodge,
Iowa.- While pastor ef ft small churco
near Fort Dodge last July hets accusal
of having, oollected - several . hundred
dollars of church, funds, borrowed email
sums from - his members- and frtende
and ' disappeared, ' leaving 'a wife and
young babe. - He turned up In Portland
last ApiiU.-and presented to ths Port
land presbytery a church letter from
the Fort Dodge presbytery, apparently
signed by the moderator and clerk, a tat.
Ing- that ' he. had. been honorably dis
missed from that presbytery to tha Ore
gon synod.
Being a man of pleasing address and
unquestioned sblllty, Wingert was at
once recommended te the Presbytertang
at Tillamook and waa immediately en
gaged aa pastor.' After his' departure
for hie new charge, the o (Bee re of the
Portland presbytery began to hear ef
numeroua sums of money that ha had
borrowed from local ministers during
bis brief stay In this city and hla ap
parent unwillingness to repay the same. .
An Investigation waa Instituted by
Rev. K. M. Sharp of the Mount Tabor
Presbyterian church, who wrote a letter
of Inquiry to the officers of ths Fort
Dodge presbytery and received In reply
the Information that the church letter
presented by Wingert to the Portland
presbytery waa a forgery, that ha had .
deserted his wife and child and had
seriously embarrassed hie church, by
appropriating about It 00 of church
funds In addlUon to leaving ft cloud
Of unpaid debts.
Tbs letter to Rev. Mr. Sharp also said
that several of Wlngerf s former par
lshoners, whom he had swindled, were
anxloua to apprehend him and turn "him
over to the officers of the law. The Im
mediate , cause ot Wlngert'a flight froan
Tillamook was a letter that ha had re
ceived front Her. B. M. Sharp, secre
tary ot the Portland Presbytery, sum
moning btm to Portland to explain the
Iowa charges. He replied to this letter
by postal, promising to be In Portland
May 21. but nothing hss been heard
from him slnee.
The Portland Presbyterian ministers
are chagrined over.. Wlngert'a imposi
tion and are anxloua that he be checked"
In his career. Rev. E. M. Sherp gives
the following description of Wingert s
