It now transpires that tho fellow IB a thief, and that he made his visits here to dispose of some watches and diamonds that he "picked" from J. D. Taylor's jewelry store at Logansport, Ho pawned one gold-filled watch and two diamonds at the Marion Loan- Company's ollice. Mrnager B«ber called the attention of Officer Gross to the fact that the advertisement of Jewelei Taylor was in the back of the watch. Taylor had missed two watches and six diamonds valued at $284. They were taken from time to time In a mysterious manner, end the Logansport police together with Pan Handle detective John Gallagher, wore on the lookout for a high, toned thief. Stokes, whose real name is Sol Speed, was a porter in a saloon near the Taylor jewelry store, and was regarded as an honest fellow until one day last week, when he robbed tho cash box of the saloon of $80 and Had to Kokomo. He threw $40 of tho money away when he was finally cornered, and only surrendered after a Dgbt. He was taken to Logansportand locked up.

He claimed that Manager Baber refused to make a loan on the four largest diamonds or to return to him. Officer Gross demanded tne diamonds of Baber, but he aaid that the two diamonds on which he had made a loan had been forfeited and sold, that he did not know where they wore, and thnt the negro did not leave tbe four large diamonds with him. •The negro brought tho diamonds and watch at different times," said Manager Baber of tbe Marlon loan office. "They were set in cheap rings. He said that one belonged to his vrife and the other to himself. He got $7 OP one and $3 on tho other. When he called with the watch I still thought that it was all right, but In a few days, when he called with a second watch, I knew that he was not getting them honestly, and I informed the police. The negro denied that he had ever been In my office before, but I was sure that I was not mistaken, although he had changed his name. Mr. Tay lor, the Logansport jeweler, and Da- tectlve Gallagher were up to ^e me Saturday. They said that the negro, In bis confession, told them that the Marion pawnbroker told him logo out and get more of that kind of stuff." Randolph F«nc<Mt Wanted.
