FORGED BY A BAEON. Suits foi Many Thousands Against an Allegheny Social Lion. PiTTsyL'Ht;, Aug. ^7.-Quite a sensation was caused iu financial and social cireles by the filing of suits by tbo Allegheny Natioual and Keystone National Banks, the former for $10,000 and the latter for $7,000, against Baron J. F. Langerfelt, who has beeu assooiated with MaxSchatn-berg, the Austrian Consul and well known banker. The papers filed make very serious charges against Baron LaDgerfelt, who they say is now in Europe, they believe, to avoid these suits. In the suit of the Keystone Bank the allegations are that Baron Langerfelt, on July 10 last, borrowed $7,000 from tho Keystone Bank and gave as collateral 200 shares of the capital stock of the Jefferson Iron Works, of Stoubenvillo, Ohio, of the par value of cAOQ ea?b, which shares h� represented to be good, valid and subsisting shares of stock of the company, standing in his name on the books of the company. The bank, relying on his statements, loaned him the sum of $7,000, taking tho 200 shares of stock as collateral. They further claim that since then the plaintiffs havo discovered that the certificate for 200 shares of stock is not genuine, but that it is a forgery, aud that defendant has not 200 shares or any other number of shares in tho Jefferson Iron Works, and that the certificate is no security for the loan. THE OTUEH SUIT. . Iu the suit of-thc Allegheny National Bank defendant is charged with obtaining $10,000 upon a certificate for 400 shares of the capital stock of the Jefferson Iron Works, of Stoubeuville, which he also claimed was good aud valid stock standing in his name on the books of the company, but which turned out to be a forgery. The couit allowed an attachment to issue whereby tho effects and the property of Baron Langerfelt are to be seized, and fixed the bail in one case at $14,000, and in the other at 820,000. The Jefferson Iron Works to-day pub-Iished the fact that, it having come to the knowledge of the board of directors of the company that fraudulent certificates of stock of the company had been oirculatedt the public were warned not to purchase any stock without first submitting it for inspection at the office of the company. Tho Baron loft for Europe on a pleasure trip some three weeks ago. His friends claim there is some mistake about the matter. HE STOOD VEUV HIGH. ' His family are wealthy aud stand very high. Tho Baron has always had the esteem and confidence of the peoplo in this vicinity and his roputatiou for honesty and fair dealing has never been questioned. IIo some some years ago was married to the daughter of Mr. Doty, ono of the largest stockholders in tho Jefferson Iron Works. It is said by the Jefferson Iron Company people that the Baron had a largo number of blank certificates printed. These ho filled up in his own name and signed the names of the company's officials. Tho seal used is alao said to be fraudulent. Baron Langerfelt was a tall and extremely fine looking man and waB quite a Boclal lion hero. air. O- Edwin Dudley, Comedian, The above named gentleman, Mr. Dudley, is a comedian-a real one-whose face alone will convulso bis audience before he aitieuiates a word. Good comedians are so scarce that when Mr. Dudley appearB, (aB he does nightly with Miss Crowell), the uudienco wants to keep him on tbo stage all tho time. The writer had an interview with Miss Floy Crowell yesterday and she said she had tbo greatest repertoire company in the world. Tho following is a uaitla! list of tho groat actors: Mr. Harry Leslie, a \e.*y ;.lovci ac'or and vocalist, who naij iead::ig baiitoco .linger with tho f.;;..ms "Clipper Quartette'* three years wit'j Tlntchor, Primrose West's min-Btu.*. r r.in'a MajDijtja'id, the hand- some, go-'1 't-rmiuiy or whe bt.s been loading man with Frederick Warde. � 'auut.iO-'-v.'i," a'jd lat-: season with V I )avcntis the highest salaried ' >r in the repo:toirebu-icw.
