MURPHY, Proprletop Majestic Theatre Block, Phone 636 The Northern Crown Bank Gise (Continued (torn Itont page). left behind him at the tatter bank a defalcation of 1100, whkch he proceeded to cover, Immediately on his arrival at hlB new post, by issuing a bogus choquo In favor of the Calgary branch for tho amount, drawn on the tictltloug name of Walsh, and cUarg-' ed against a nbn-ext^tent accouH. ' This fraud was not discovered until later. A few weeks afterwards ho re-celved a deposit of 192 from a client of the bank, of which he cre^lUed %',Vi to the funds of the bank, and pocketed the surplus. From oomparatlve-I ly small amounts he went In for appropriating larger sums, and blossomed out at an Investor In real estate and a speculator in wheat, The margins In the latter ho covered by Issuing choquea on his supposed account at the bank, and cashing them himself. All tho real account ho had at the bank was a smdll saving's deposit. Things came so easily in the way of Bingham, that be proceeded further to falsify his additions to the. tuue of thousands of dollars. The Barik'a Claim The plaintiffs claim that all these opportunities were afforded Bingham through the lax conduct and want of superlvslon of Manager Douglas. The rule of the bank Is that the manager should personally satisfy hlmsalf that the cash and other boohs are accurate and initial them. Also it is a rule or tho bank that no one of the staff should be allowed to check bis own wor.k. It appears that Bingham was allowed to chock *off his own balance. Douglas Is claimed never to have su pervised this. The two remaining members of the staff were, more or less, green, and Bingham had practl cally everything his own woy. He was even allowed to open all- the mall, and so could adjust matters to please himself, and destroy any evidence which would diselosc the game he was playing. To crown it oil, on the resignation of Douglas, eleven days elap&Dd before the arrival of the new manager, Doble, and. In th6 interim, Bingham was appointed acting-manager, and he did not fall to make use of the easy opportunity afforded him for making hay. The neiv/ mana. ger soon discovered the true state of things, and the fat was in the fire. Bingham made a confession, and refunded a portion of the bank's lossee by realizing on property ho had ac-fjulred. Ite was pTosecuted, and sentenced, and Is at present earning bis living at. a motor garage In Vancouver. ^ Where Fortune Smiled Douglas himself is reputed as being what is known as a society man. On reaigulug from the bank, he tell in with a stroke of luck in meeting .\Ilsa Dally, daughter of the wealthy Ham ilton proprietor of the Black Kiilght Ijolish, and was taken into the firm us Us advertising agent, la Us claim the No-rthern Crown Bank iiver that the late manager was lax in his duties, discipline, and supervision, and that his neglect was contributory to the losses sustained. An.Array of Talent' A formidable array fcf counsel is engaged in the case, the bank being represented by A. H. Clarke, K. C, of Calgary, and J. W. McDonald, of Macleod. For the defendant appear P. J.
