Fargo, N. D., Oct. 6, 1906.
To the Editor:
—There is a man traveling about the country representing himself as an agent of the Columbian Life Insurance Company of Boston. He goes by the name of Bailey and other aliases; he sells stock and appoints agents. The officials of the company inform me that he has swindled a great many doctors and that they have had detectives on his trail, but have not been able to get him. He is a large man, weight 240 pounds, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, dimple in chin, gray or blue eyes, poses as a Mason and an Elk. I believe publicity in The Journal and request for other journals to copy might save a good many doctors money and might be means of apprehending this criminal.[This case was the subject of a warning in The Journal, May 12, 1906, page 1463.]
