SICKLES' ARREST ORDERED
Accusation Comes as Climax of Dis
Albany, N. Y. Upon application of
the state authorities, the supreme
court issued an order for the arrest of
General Daniel Sickles, of New York
who as chairman of the New York
Monuments commission is alleged to
have failed to account for 128,476 ef
the commission's funds.
The total amount of the alleged
shortage was 33,476, but on December
20 last Stanton Sickles, a son of the
general, paid the state $5000 and prom
ised to make good the remainder as
soon as certain property in Spain,
owned by Mrs. Sickles, could be sold.
The order for General Sickles' ar
rest comes as a climax of a distin
guished and picturesque career. Born
in New York in 1825, of a wealthy fam
lly. General Sickle served as a sold
ier, legislator and diplomat At the
outbreak of the civil war General Blck
les raised and equipped at his owa ex
pense, five regiments ef voluitters,

PRESS AGENT SHOW
Right on the job and keen after all
the essential details, the press agent
for the big musical comedy "Jane,"
presented here by local talent a few
days ago, "fell down" in one respect
only. He neglected to inform the
newspapers of the big doings and as
a consequence this production one of
the greatest local dramatic successes
of the year failed to receive the re
cognition last week which it so amply
The three-act comedy, the principal
characters in which were taken by
talented local comedians, scored a dis
tinct hit when given before a crowded
house. The leading characters were
taken by such local stars as R. E.
Scott, C. F. Gilbert, Arthur Clarke,
J. P. Lucas, Herbert Phillips, Harriett
Hansen, Florence Schmeltzer, . Ethel
Kier and Mrs. J. P. Lucas.
The comedy was full of action and
abounded in laughable situations of
which the caste made the most. Gil
bert and Clarke rivaled Weber and
Fields as laugh-provoking comedians
It transpired after the show that
Clarke had let slip the remark before
the performance that he was going to
spring something new on his sid
partner and "get his goat" before the
audience. Wind of this scheme reach
ed Gilbert, it is said, and upon hi
first opportunity.while Clarke was still
a little flustrated, demanded "what hi
name was, anyway." For the life of
him Clarke couldn't remember that his
euphoneous stage label was "Ker
shaw" and for half a minute you could
have knocked him over with a feather,
so his fellow comedians declare. How
ever, he recovered sufficiently to carry
through his part in an effective man
The program was interspersed with
pleasing musical numbers rendered by
a chorus which was composed of the
Marie Bart mess, Lillian Brock, Ethel
McDonald, Elizabeth King, Dotherty
Baker, Jessie Howes, Elizabeth Car
son. Myrtle Husbands, Marion Howe
Ella McDonald, Jewel Taylor, Gertrude
Nickelsen, Ruth Harris, llilma Imliolz
Wilma Thompson, Ruth Barrett, Clara
Rand, Katherine Baker, Mary White
head, May Klinger, Lena Bartlett
Frances Castner, Florence Castner
Beatrice Shreve. These performed
their part extraordinarily well. The
entire performance, which was produc
ed under the direction of W. E. Gra
ham, was most creditable. It was pre
sented under the auspices of the La
dies' Aid of the Congregational church.
L. Touscher was arrested by Marsh
al Lewis and Deputy Sherift Hart the
last of the week. Seven indictments
were found against him by the grand
jury charging him with violation of
the liquor laws. He was out of town
while the inquisitorial body was in
session and was taken into custody
upon his return. He lived in the shack
back of the Blowers Hardware Com
pany and search of his rooms showed
a large quantity of bottles. The local
officers have had him under surveil
lance for some time. He is now out
on $700 bail.
