Morgenstern Missing (1889)

Ignatz N. MORGENSTERN is missing from Chicago and with him the funds of the Polish National Alliance of North America, of which, until week before last, he was General Secretary. MORGENSTERN was also Secretary of the Polish National Building and Loan Association, and financial manager of the Sgoda, a Polish weekly paper.  Besides this he was an agent for real estate owners and did some business as a transportation and passage agent.  It is believed he has embezzled funds from each of these connections.  The total amount of his embezzlement is variously estimated at from $4,000 to $12,000.
