WILLIAM C. GILMAN,
Jfte Causes which Produced His Down
fallAffecting Scenes in Court
Bis Final Departure for Sing Sing for
. , Five Yurs
New York Tress Dispatch ;
Win. C. Gilinan, the former of
insurance scrip, indicted by the
grand jury on the 11th, surrendered
himself on the 12th, and appeared
before Recorder Hackett, where lie
pleaded guilty and was nentenci'd
to tive year.s in state prison. Ciil
.raan's counsel read a statement in
extenuation in which Gilinan says
the decline in business, b.id inest
jments, heavy expenses, both busi--neas
and domettic, and personal
HAD BETRAYED HUr.
lie loved better to give away mon
ey than to spend it on himself. His
thoughts and interests were more
with charitable works. He hunt-elf
was to blame lor his expenses
.at home and in buiness. His wife
aiever persuaded him to any ex
travagance. From the time he be
.gan busiuess he had placed in his
iiands by lriends who trusted him
implicitly sums ranging trom $100
to 2,000 on interest at 7 per cent.
He never speculated or lost or won
any money by any wager. He
made investments in enterprises
which promised well, butall turned
-out bad. Long possession of money
of his friends made him look upon
it as his own, and the losses and ex
pense causedeucroaehments upon it.
Times grew worse. The failure of
the Sun Montreal Insurance Com
jpaiiy aad the
NECESSITIES OF OTHER COMPANIES
insured confidence in everything
except the Atlantic, and competi
tion for that had carried prices so
high as to leave no margin for prof
it, -and had made his commissions
thoroughly inadequate to meet
Abe seals of expense on which he
was doing business and living.
Prior to the panic of 1873 he had
made improper use of trust funds,
omder the pressure of declining
business, and the trouble of that
year had involved him in addition
al bosses. After that time he must
have put forth raised certificates.
JBLe had suffered in thinking of his
business, in abusing the confidence
of his friends. Hoping that the
aiext step would extricate him, he
pluuged deeper and deeper. He
.had not sold any fraudulent securi
ties, but had borrowed on them.
.He .alone was responsible for every
wrong act, and no human being
ever haa a suspicion of it. Suicide
had been much in his thoughts.
was addressed to his brothers and
listers, who lose 875,000 by his op
erations; to Rev. Dr. Houghton,
liisJbrother in law,and rector of the
"Little Church around the corner,"
And other friends. The scene in
the Court was exceptional. The
counsel who read the paper did so
with a trembling voice. Air. Lane,
who followed, was deeply affected,
.and said Gilinan left his wife at
liome on the verge of -insanity..
District Attorney Phelps, with
tears coursing down Jiischeeks,aud
with choking utterance, said ahe
Aiad known the fnisoner, and tliib
was the-saddet-l case he had ever
.anything to do with.''
Recorder Hackett iu pat-sing sen-
tenee1 was much affected and wiped
away a tear. The detectives turn-
.ed their backs to the tearful spec
tacle, huiried Gilinan to tlae coaoU
4ii waiting a drove to his office,
which lie has left as a convict for
;Sing Sing for a jterm of tive years
.at hard labor.

No provision for our heirs is adequate that
is not immediate, for death may be imme

its reduction of pauperism and possibility o'f
crime. It is ji national blessing and will at
no distant day be universally adopted.
