Northern Section of the City Was
Invaded and Several Houses
FRIEST FIRED AT THEM.
Tolice Have Not Made Report on
Ilaid of Hotisc-Itrenkcrs, Which
Caused Much Commotion
Loss Was Slight.
Burglars Invaded the quiet little suburb
of Eaden last Saturday night nnd attempt
ed to enter more than a dozen houses. The
police made no report of the occurrence,
but as far as can be learned three houses
wero entered. That others were not broken
Into Is not the fault of the burglars.
It Is not known whether the work was
that of a sans of burglars, or of two
men only, but the fact remains that In a
short time attempts were made to enter
sit least a dozen houses. Tho marauders
were eidently well acquainted with tho
"Jay of tho land."
It Is well known in Baden that in a ter
ritory of perhaps two square miles only
two policemen are assigned to preserve
the peace at nlsht. Tlis early mornlns
prowlers psobably were aware or this, as
they proceeded with their work with lit
tle attempt nt steulthlness.
It Is supposed that th first house en
tered was that of James K. Coombs at
Mo. 7W5 Ovcrbcek street. The burglars were
discovered bv Coombs shortly after they
had farced an entrance to the house and
lied precipitately. Coombs pursued a short
distance, and tired several shots, but none
From the Cbombs house they proceeded
to the residence of Solomon Yates, at No.
ill liittner street. Th heaviest haul of
the niRlit was made at tho Yates home,
$'.i and a pair of trousers beinc; taken.
After going through Yates's houe. it seems
that the burplars worked north, and at
tempted to enter several houses, but in
each Instance were frighten d away by the
John P. Schelsen of No. S13 Mcuiren ave

mornine:. and, upon investigating, sav two
men. lie llred several shots at them, and
they ran. ,
Kdward P. Dowling, of tho firm of Dowl
Ing & Prendergast. or No. KE4 Church
road, was awakened by his wife, who told
him that strange men were prowling In
the yaiii. Dowling arose, and. upon yeeins
the men walk across the yard, asked them
who they were. He was gruffly told to
mind his own business."
Krom Dowling's home It 13 but a short
distance to tho residence of Father Phe

In chargo of Fathers Godfrey and Kern,
who wero awakened bv the sound of shot3
from a revolver fired by a policeman, who
had been Informed by now ling of the oc
currence In his yard. Fathers Godfrey ami
Kern, upon descending the stairs, found the
men at work on the window, tho wire
pcreon having been removed by them. Upon
tho appearance of the occupants of the
hnuso they took to their heels, their spool
being1 accelerated by ft few shots from Fa
ther Kern's revoix-er.
Several other places were islted. Tho
residence of Doctor Van Hoefer at No. SIOS
Hall's Kerry road was thoroughly ran
sacked, but the burglars secured nothing.
The Baden police havo been working on
tho case, but up to yesterday had made no
report on It.

Real Estate Circles Agitated In
Persistent Rumor That Deal to
Wipe Out Competition Is
Information was given out yesterday In
real e-stato circles that a deal is being
quietly worked to consolidate all of the
title investigating firms of the city. If the
deal goes through, it will work a radical
charge In the method of conducting exam
inations of titles to real estate, and will
tend. It Is stated, to greatly increase the
It will operate to the advantage of the
lm estlgators. who will control the business.
In addition to their proilts being increased,
their expenses will bo much reduced. It Is
estimated that tho work can be done with
alout one-half of the combined force now
employed by the different firms.
The increase of the cost of making exam
inations will be brought about in this man
ner: At present, each Investigator can fix
his own price. Owing to the keen competi
tion, which exists, fees have been much re
duced from what they were some years ago.
Then, also. Investigators give certificates
of title, which amount to guarantees, as
tho Investigators can bo sued IT a flaw bo
found In the title within a certain number
of years after the examination lias been
made. It is proposed to cease Issuing cer
tificates, nnd. Instead, give transcripts of
the chain of title, and havo an attorney to
pass on the transcript. The person having
the examination made can have his own
attorney pas3 upon the matter, which will
entail an extra fee. The charge for pre
paring the transcript will bo so much for
ef-y deed contained In the transcript. Ily
this mode, the investigator will not be
liable. Tho proposed trust firm will, how
ever. Issue guarantees of title If requested,
charging for them at a rate not yet named.
The firms mentioned most prominently In
connection with the movement are the St.
Lculs Trust Company, tho Union Trust
Company, tho Lincoln Trust Company, tho
Mississippi Valley Trust Company and Au
gust Gehner & Co. The plan. It Is stated. Is
for the above firms to consolidate, and buy
out the smaller firms. An effort was made
to keep the matter quiet.
It Is stated that August Gehner was
slated for the presidency of the new com
pany, but that he would not accept the
pcsltion for personal reasons. His action
has caused a hitch, and efforts are being
made to adjust matters to suit Mr. Gehnur's
wishes. It Is stated.
The movement had its origin. It Is said,
because of the dullness of tho title In
vestigating business, caused by the stag
nation of the real estate market. It Is
stated by Inestlgators that business has
not been so dull in jears as at present.
