A Woman Seirclttoa funds Udder fall* Pretene A woman-or possibly two of them —has been soliciting inndc for Mrs. Graceyand family, stating that she was acting under the instruction of Mrs. 8. Demuth. The woman has collected considerable cash, and has undoubtedly applied It to her own use. Mrs. Demnth has not authorized any one to do so, and knows nothing of the person so soliciting, and the solicitor is therefore obtaining money under a false pretense.

Up on Dry street there is a general mix-up of properly frontage, brought to light when the sidewalks were built here. It is especially true on the north side of that street, between Main and High streets. In establish- ng the northwest corner of Dry and Main streets, it appears that a former City Engineer established the point on he basis that Main street was ^66 feet wide. However, Main street is but 60 eet wide and here Is where the trouble .began. The frontage 'along Dry itreet was .sold by metes and bounds t will thus be seen that by taking the wrong starting point giving by the City Engineer, every tract was wrong- nlly located and that each owner, ixcept the last, overlaps onto his neighbor's place. In one instance a louse has been built so that three feet of it Is in reality on a lot belonging to another than the owner of the house. Jt Is a "mess" to say the least, and a lardsbip on the property owners. Shampooing and vapor baths new barber &op, A. J.

Joseph McOluro, a well known man about town, and an employe of the Prudential Insurance Co., was arrested last night on the charge of passing a worthless check for «25 on F. H. Fanl. McOlore was arrested in Rippe's cigar store while playing a game of cards, and had just previous to his arrest made an attempt to pass a worthless cheek on Mr. Rippe. Scarcely was McOlnre in the hands of the police when his victims about town began (locking to the police station to secure .warrants for his arrest. Squire Few issued three warrants last night and Squire Noonan issued one, the aggregate amount received by McOlure from these victims being $26. The warrants issued last night were sworn out by P. H. Faul, who advanced McOlure $5; Wm. Bauer and R. J. Young, who advanced similar amounts, and H. Qreditzer, who lent McOlnre 97.50 and sold him clothes to the amount of 92.50. Mr. Oreditzer was more fortunate than the others in that he obtained his money after the warrant was issued. McOlure came to Alton several years ago as agent for a Jacksonville laundry. He was acquainted here and had before long made new acquaintances who now deplore the fact. Of late he has been in the employ of the Prudential Insurance Uo., but has made more money by his financial ventures than in a legitimate business way. His ability in raising money on worthless paper made him a rival of the immortal Wilkins Micawber. He had a pathetic story which be employed in working on the sympathies of his victims. He would tell of his mother being ill, and that he had been sent for, to see her before she died. His touches were always made after banking hours so that be had a good excuse. He has been following this business for several months and his victims are many. Whenever a creditor became pressing in bis demands for the .return of the money loaned, McOlnre would borrow from some one else and pay his importunate creditor. He kept this up, gradually widening bis field until his liabilities amounted to over J100, borrowed in amounts of 85 and >10. When arrested last night McOlure tried to secure bandsmen but failed, and was locked up in jail. His heading was eet for 3 o'clock this afternoon. McOlure was released on his own recognizance and his trial postponed for one week. Should he succeed in making up to bis victims the amount received be will not be prosecuted. LIBRARY SUPPER. The Harrison Murder Mystery. The Harrison murder is as much of a mystery as ever, notwithstanding he fact that ten days have elapsed ince the crime wan committed. Oon- idering the fact that gossip in Upper Alton is full of accusations of guilt it H remarkable that J.BO far nothing at .11 has .been learned to lead to the discovery of the guilty person. Dark hints are thrown out by some who claim to be .convinced they know who be murderer is, bnt bints do not help bo reveal the assassin when they are elled with hesitation and uncertain- y. The general impression still is hat the guilty one-was some personal enemy of the murdered man. Since he people of the ^village have bad ime to cool off their first fury and to onslder the matter carefully they have arrived at the conclusion that he man who was said at the time of bis murder to have no enemies, had uite a few, bnt there most people top. No one likes to say who would !o such a cold-blooded deed, bnt ev- irybody is thinking and if ever the guilty person is found there will be a treat many to say "I told yon so." fo reward has yet been offered probably because no one has taken an ao- ive Interest in the matter. The offl- ere -of the law would probably be more active should a reward be jmb- ished. The Governor has been asked o offer the usual reward of $200 but as not as yet issued bis proclama- ion.

The meeting of citizens interested n the formation of an association for he purpose of offering a standing reward for the capture or killing of t burglar, was held in the council chamber Tuesday evening.

Upper Alton residents were there to act with Alton residents In this mutual protective association. Only the preliminary steps toward effecting the organization were taken. Mr. F. H. Ferguson was selected chairman and Mr. E. M. Dorsey secretary. The society is to have a name, constitution and bylaws, and to carry out these details a committee consisting of Messrs. A. Neerman, E. M. Dorsey, J. F. Porter, H. T. Burnap and G. H. Smiley was appointed to make a report at a meeting to be held next Tuesday evening in the council chamber.
