It appeared on mvu*..nation that Uic trans setiens between tee and Mr. Wnlpple were per fectly square, the bonds he sold to him being all genuine. The attention of the detectives was therefore directed to Cofer, who was livmg at the Mattvaon llonec. Detective Dixon Introauvcd btm*elf to this Individual under the assumed name of Joba Williams, a male dealer from Ohio.
