New York, Nov. 12. Cornelius Jj.
Alvord, Jr., the note teller of the FlrBt
National bank, who is accused of em
bezzling $600,000 of the bank's funds,
was arraigned before United Battel
Commissioner Shields in the criminal
branch of the United States oirouit
court here today.
Whiting E. Snow, assistant cashiei
of the First National bank, said he had
known Alvord 20 years, the past 10 ol
which he had been the note teller ol
the First National bank. He explained
in detail the dutie3 of the note teller
and the bank's clearing house transac
tions. He explained the balance
sheets, which showed a shortage of
$690,000 in Alvord's department. The
figures showed that the shortage var
ied, and that from "October 10 to Octo
ber 13 it was $700,000. Alvord's at
torney led Snow to admit that since
the hitter first boeame an officer of the
bank, two years ago, he had never
known officers of the bank to examine
the assets of the institution.
(Cashier William Reed, of the First
National be nk, was the next witness.
He said that the last time the bank had
an examination was October 15. lie
had no personal knowledge of any re
port of the examination.
Mcrton V. Moore, settling oiern ior
the bank, identified a column of figure
on a sheet that was prepared for and
sent to the clearing house as having
been made by himself. He explained
the details of making up the sneets
for the clearing house. Then, one by
one, he laentineu me sueuts niuu up
for the banking days in October. Mr.
Moore tesitfied that two figures in the
shtets made up tor October 15 had been
changed. The figures as they stood
were not his. He did not know who
had made the changes. It was brought
out that the sheet had been in tha pos
session of Alvord as it hadbeen marl
up by Moore.
