YOUTH ADMITS FORGERIES
George WICK Caught Trying to Pass Bogus Paper on Company.
Caught attempting to cash a
forged check by presenting it in payment of a small account
owned by his father, at the Eastern Outfitting Company's
store, George WICKMAN, aged 13, was arrested last
evening by Detectives LITHERLAND and Van ORN.
The bill that he offered to pay
was $5, and he presented a check for $32, purported to be
made in favor of himself by his sister-in-law, Mrs. Grace
A. WICKMAN. Becomeing suspicious, the store
managers detained WICKMAN while they communicated
with the police. After his arrest it developed that by
a similar method he had obtained $9.40 from C. E.
STEALBERG, a grocer. At that time he presented a
check for $12 in settlement of an account for $2.60, also
owed by his father, WICKMAN confessed to both
forgeries last night.
His father, I. A. WICKMAN, who lives at 756 East
Ninth street North, told the detectives that his son was
incorrigible. He said he had previously assisted his
son after he had committed a number of similar offenses and
had attempted to reform him, but his efforts proved
unavailing and he was now not disposed to help him further.

arrest by federal authorities, he will in all
probability be suspended from the Portland police

Moore. "If the charges against Miller
are true," he stated, "I see no other course open
but to dismiss him."
Patrolman Miller has been on the local police
force for 15 years, Acting Chief Moore
stated. He has maintained a good record during
that time, and the present trouble is the first in
which he has been involved while on the force.
