Grant Daugherty, town marshal' of York, Clark County, Illinois, kicked the pickets off tho fence In front of a brick dwilng somewhere In Indianapolis early yoBtorday morning and waited Impatiently for Oroy C. Jackson, treasurer of the York Town Board, with whom he had Journeyed all the way from York. Jack. son was InBlde the house, according to Daugherty, trying to borrow $157.60 to make up an alleged shortage In his municipal accounts and he was Daugh-erty's prisoner. Daugherty tired of waiting, hut he did not fear" Jackson would escape. He has Known Jackson for several years. So, to pass away tho time, he wandered around the block and reached the brick house again safely. Jackson, to all appearances, hadn't-left tho house. The York guardian of the law removed hiB overcoat. Ho was sweating, but time dragged heavily and he started to walk around another block. That was the last calm moment Marshal Daugherty enjoyed yesterday, at least that was what he told the police ator in the afternoon. Time and again he tried to get back to the brick house ; and the - fenco pickets. But he failed each time. The brick house seemed to have vanished like tho fairy castles of . old. He walked until exhausted. Then ho hired a rig at a livery stable near by. Ho was afraid he could not find the livery barn to return the horse, so, after several valorous sallies out into the labyrinth of Indianapolis streets he abandoned Ids rig and had an urchin escort him to the .Police Station. He gave the boy a nickel, Dern it all," said the marshal to Captain of Detectives Bray, who preserved .his facial gravity with difficulty, I haven't been drinkin' anything. That house was there and It wasnU. there. I walked around them thai blocks 'till I got dizzy and I hired a rig and druv over the hul dern town. I'd hev gone further but I was afraid I couldn't find tho barn agin. Now I haven't got no overcoat nor no prisoner. An' I don't know whether he got the money to make up his accounts or not." Captain Sympathetic. Capt. Bra was sympathetic and Detectives Kinney and Morgan were called in on the case. Tho marshal said that he. had brought Jackson to Indianapolis at the latjer'.s roqueat that he might be able to get the money from his mother, a "Mrs. Whlteacre." Daugherty said he was led to the home of Mrs. Whlteacre the brick houseby his prisoner about 4 o'clock yes- i .,. torday morning. They came in on an early j; train from York. The officers took Marshal Daugherty to a number of homes of Whitoacres, the addresses being found in the Cltv Directory. But none "panned out" right. The.brick house had truly vanished. Late yesterday afternoon Daugherty decided that he would go home, not having sufficient money to remain in the city. Tills-reason alone, he snid, was sufficient to cause him to face tho disgrace of returning without his man. "Ana say. Can." said he in denartlnEr. "keep a lookout fer him, will you, an' fer my overcoat, too. i it at tne nouse, , you kn.'w, on the fence." "Capt. Bray and his officers are "stumped." Daugherty couldn't tell even the direction ho and'Jacksm pursued after leaving the Union Station. The "sleuths" are looking for a brick house. A picket fence surrounds the house. A coat hangs over the fence. It flaps Idly lrt the breeze, provided there's a breeze. ROOSEVELT HOME SUNDAY. President Will Arrive Home a Day Ahead of Schedule. WASHINGTON, Nov. 19.

M. jsau can Phone your Want Ads to The Star - CALL VP 4000 Old or New Records and Stories of Old Citizens Conflict. Fourteen hundred mon are missing. They are in their graves. That much is known, but tho fact remains that they are missing just the same. Col. William Elliott of tho War Department at Washington came to Indinnnpoils yesterday to undertake tho colossal task of locating tho graves of 1,400 Confederate soldiers who died at Camp Morton during the civil war and who were buried' in one of the Indianapolis cemeteries. Col, Elliott is accompanied" by a clerk from tho War Deportment and he proposes to remain in Indianapolis until ho locates the graves or else concludes that liis task is impossible. Records in tho possession of the War vDepartmont show that the Confederates who died at Camp Morton when held as prisoners of war were buried in Green-lawn Cemetery. These records, however, are at variance with statements Col. Elliott has obtained since coming to Indlan-apolts. Ho spent yesterday morning In tho State library and in the afternoon he visited Crown Hill Cemetery. According to the War Department records, the graves of about fourteen hundred Confederates should be located in Indianapolis. "I expeated to find these in Crown Hill Camotery," said Col. Elliottt last night, "ana went there yesterday afternoon for that purpose. At the cemetery I was Informed that not a single one of the Confederate dead has over been buried there. The situation here Is sffrely unusual and difficult to solve." Refers to History of'Clty. At the State Library Col. Elliott found a history of Indiananolls written vnars ago by Col. W. R. Holloway, now United States minister to Halifax. Col. Hollo-way, In dealing with events of the war In which Indianapolis people had a part, says that' the bodies of tho Confederates were moved from Greenlawn Cemetery to Crown Hill. Acting on this information Col. Elliott went to Crown Hill con fident that he would find tho utiFvpu tin sought there. "I can Tlnd no trace of the graves in Greenlawn," ho said. "The cemetery seems to have been abandoned long ago. The men In charge there pointed out to me where they thought the Confederate soldiers wero buried. , I went to tho place, but could find nothing. The only graves to bo found In Greenlawn are those that are marked, and arc evidently the graves of Indianapolis citizens. I have found a. plat of the cemetery, but it gives me no Information." E. B. Martindale. who waq publisher of . the Indianapolis Journal during the civil j war, said last night it was his recollection that the bodies of tho rebel nrfson- ers of war were burled in Greenlawn near me river Dank. He did not remember that they hud been moved. Capt. S. C. Reynolds of Irvlngton said last night: "As a boy of 23 I remember very well of seeing the undertakers iaito tnose Domes up. Tney were taken from the northwest part of the cemetery. I was employed by the old Terre Hauto Railroad, which ran near there. I remember that one body was found to bo petrified. It was the body of a Confederate officer. It was my understanding thnt tho bodies were taken to Crown Hill Cem-etory." Today Col. Elliott will endeavor to find some of the old time undertakers. Ho is staying at the Hotel English and will be grateful for any Information that will help him in his search. The War Department in making an effort to locate the graves of Confederate soldiers in tho North is acting under the provisions of the Foroker bill passed by the last national Congress. Tho bill authorizes the War Department to ascertain where all Confederate soldiers Ho burled In the North and to place a marble slab at the head of each grave. The Confederate prisoners who died at Indianapolis were brought to Camp Morton In February, 18G2. Thoy came from Ft. Donelson and had belonged to Gen. Buckncr's command. Fifteen thousand Confederates were captured at Donelson by Gen. Grant and were brought north. Several thousand of these prisoners came to Camp Morton. The weather was bitterly cold when they arrived here and many of them contracted pneumonia as the rosult of the sudden change in temperature. The Confederates had no blankets and had only thin comforts to wrap themselves In when they slept. Dr. P. H. Jameson and Dr. J. M. idtchen were the physicians in chargo of Camp Morton.

T POLICE INVADE THEIR HAUNTS Barrel Houses Emptied in Answer to Appeal by Traction Lines for Laborers. With a famine of common laborers on one hand and tho barrel houses ailed with "loafers" nn (ho other, Chief or 1'ollco Robert Metzger yesterday began n crusade with a view to relieving tho situation. As a result twenty-six men were haled to colls by the police on charges of drunkenness and loitering, while the barrelhouse keepers rnlsod a storm of protest because their "trade" was takon from them. v From now on "Barrel IJonsa Bob," "Dusty Rhoades" and the rest of tho gang who have been wont to toast their shins beforo a good wann Ire in u. barrel house or corner saloon whllo thelr' wIvoR took In washings or their sons and daughters worked to support them, will either have to go lo work or to the Workhouse. This was Hi- edict that went forth from the Police Station yesterday am1 tho dlHtrlct officers started out bright and early to enforce it, With Lieut. Henry W. Sandmann in charge of the work, hitch is were made in a wholesale way, Ki III morn are to bo made. miction onicmiH who employ la borers havo asked the police repeatedly to nid them in getting workmen, nnd have gone so far as to furnish them with names of men who have worked a day or two until they could get. enough money to buy liquor. It is said that the majority of contractors are offering $2 a day for nine hours' work for common hiborors. In the majority of cases tho police found that tho men they encountered would not work, even If they wore paid $10 a day. It was just such a crowd that Patrolmen Delner and Slate ran across In a West Washington street barrel houso yesterday morning. Toasting Before Fire. Tho patrolmen strolled leisurely into tho place, swinging their clubs. There wero seven men with backs turned to the stoves when they entered, but with a movement that strongly resembled a military maneuver thoy tinned as ono man and began warming their hands before tho lire. "What are you fellows doing?" asked uoiner. Most of them wero too lazy apparently to reply, but one man summoned energy onougn 10 say "jNuwunir. "Well, you are certainly tho men we want to 1 no then.' exclaimed Ue Her "The traction .companies want 700 men right away at S2 a dav nil winter's work anu oniy nine nours a any. jjo you rei lows want a job?" jnu ir inn ponce expected any suun podo for work tliev wero mistaken. , "Tell you tho truth, nardrior, I'd like to work, but my back hurts just a nim i u, saio ano man. uiuors nau simi lar excuses. "All right," said Delner, "if you don't wojii cunt Kimi or wont wo can give you another job, We'll give you a nice Job mnklng lltlo stones out of nig ones at tho Workhouse," Thoy wero arrested. Other officers had practically tho same experience in every barrel house In the downtown district. From two to four persons were arrested In each and In some cases the barrel houso keepers wore Indignant because the police had made severe inroads on their "Irado." Lieut. Sandmann has been Instructed to accompany every district man In (Hp city over tho district and thus visit every saloon In town, "Every contractor in the city Is making life miserable for us." said Chief Metzgor last night, "asking us to help thorn find laborers, At least 1,000 men can find work and there Is no cxcusoi for a man not working." The crusade for tho present will be carried on during tho day time, and, after all the districts 'havo been cove-red, Lieut. Sandmann will begin following the same plana at night. The arrests yesterday wer made largely by Lieut. Sandmann and Patrolmen Dugan, J llllman, Delner, Slate and Ilagorman, INSULTS ARMY; IS ARRESTED.

Thomns Fortuno Ryan, mult I -millionaire and ono of the greatest powers In the financial world, err-al od a decided sensiitlon today when, In a formal slatement, ho announced that ho had severed his ntllelnt connection with many rnllroiid and industrial corporations, lie gave an a reason that, inasmuch as he Is closely nssoclated with (hmncinl and fiduciary Institutions, owning hundreds of minimis of assets and deposits beimglng to thousands of people, ho consldft od It neei'fisnr.v to never his eonneetion with ' the various corporations with which theno institutions tiro likely to, have buslnoss dealings. The announcement of Mr. Ryan's action hml much of the effect that tho cxplo sfoii of a bomb might In llnancliil circles In tho metropolis. There wiu, a hurry and a scurry on tho part of tho men, whosn mimes are household words, to find out why this action was taken and what companion Mr. Ryan had abandoned. Mr. Ryan himself declared thai; his formal statement contained till that ha would nay under any circumstances, and Henry D. MeDona, who has been associated, for yours with Mr, Ryan, when nuked to fur-niHli the list mentioned, declared that It was Impossible, Mr. MeDona rend Mr. Ryan's omnia I statement wllh a great deal or Interest, and then announced that ho no Moved it contained all that wan to bo Hald on the subject. Mr. Ryan's slutnmont rend as follows: l.hnvn resigned from the directorates of a large number of rallrondri and other cornnrnilons. My accumulating interests and responsibilities render It impossible lor mo to n tt ami so many directors' mOOU HITS I nmnnrlv t,i,, v,ir obligations to tho stockholders concerned. V Gives His Reasons, I havo also reached tho conclusion thatv I ciiu best sorvo tho financial and fiduciary Institutions wllh which 1 am ns-Hoclated by severing my ofllclal ennneo-tlon with tho railroad and Industrial corporations with which thoy necessarily havo constant business relations. I hnno and believe that the decision' which I havo miulo will prove to tho advantage or all the interests lor which my friends hold mo responsible, and of tho gontlomon with whom , I havo so long boon associated In the, various corpora tlona from whoso boards' l have resigned." It wns reported among men who are supposed to bo in touch with Mr. Ryan' tpnlght that ho has considered tho step taken today very earnestly for some time. Tho opon criticism of his methods in tho newspapers of tho United States havo deeply pained him, according to hla I'rlondw, and he desires to plaeo Ills affairs In such a state- that they will bo anovo nnd neyond criticism. Mr. Ryan, besides his own vast property Interests scattered all over tho world, has "bought in" many big concerns, especially banking Instltiit Ions and insurance corporations, during Hie last decade. His friends declare thnt he deeply appreciates his responsibilities from this source nnd, therefore, ho Is severing his relations with tlio corporations which these Institutions aro likely to have business dealings with. Buya Hyde InterestB. As will bo recalled, Mr. Ryan's purchase of (ho Hyde Interests In tho Equitable Life Assunmco Society wns criticised very sovoroly at tho time, and tho charge wns made that he took over tho control of tho Equitable so that he might have tho direction of Its enormous surplus funds.
