SOUGHT BROTHER SEVEN YEARS
G. B. Hartwig Now Appeals to Ger
man Consul for Aid.
For mora than seven years G. B. Hart
wig of No. 1009 Gratiot street has been
looking for his brother. Gustav riartwlg,
who disappeared from that number on July
13. 1833. Now he has Invoked the aid of
Herr Carl P. Fromann. the local German
Consul, and Is determined to find his broth
cr if he is alive, and. If he Is dead, to ascer
tain where his body was burled.
Mr. Hartwig Is Inclined to the belief that
his brother Is dead, and yesterday had Herr
Fromann write to County Clerk Henry Helmet-lag
of the St. Louis County Court at
Clayton, asking if a death certificate bear
ins that name Is amors bis tiles. In his
letter Herr Fromann sajs that on Novem
ber 9. 18.33, a man giving the name of Joseph
Hartwig was found as'eep on the Colorado
tracks at Drew Station, In St. Louis Coun
ty, just In time to save him from injury by
a train. He thinks that possibly Joseph
Hartwig and Gustav Hartwiz w ere one and
the same person, and that bis first name
Hartwig was a laborer and had been In
this country but a short time when he dis
appeared. On the evening of July 13, 1893,
he returned to his brother's homo from his
daily toil and said that he would woik no
more. The next morning he disappeared.

REPUDIATE THEIR CANDIDATE.
Addro.v$ Printed in the St. Louis
County Wntrhnum Urges the
Defeat of the Kepublican
Nominee for Sheriff.
The Republican flclit on Edmund C.
Hcncken. the Republican nominee for
Sheriff In St. Louis County., is to be a
thorough one. Yesterday a strong de
nunciatory nddres against Henckon was
Issued to tbe county Republicans signed ly
twenty-eight of tho best-known citizens of
St. Louis County.
Among other things, the circular pays:
"Believing that the principles of the Re
publican party are greater thin tho ambi
tions and aspirations of any candidate for
local office, or those who foster his can
didacy, we appeal to yon as Republicans
and citizens nf our county. who have tho
welfare cf both county and pirty nt heart
to Ignore tho candidacy of Edmund C.
Henckcn for the office of Sheriff of St,
"We do not make this appeal to subserve
the Interests of any other candidate or to
work an Injury to our party: en the con
trary, wo believe such action to bo for tho
betterment of the Republican party of tho
county for all time to come. As the t-ur-geon
is compelled to use the knife to re
move a cancerous growth from the human
anatomy, so we propose to c-xercie our
rights a3 free American citizens and good
and intelligent Republicans to remoe an
incubus which Is becoming a festering tore
upon the body politic of St. Lou's County
and which will ultimately. If allowed to
crow, and spread, destroy tho parent tree
and all Its branches."
Then follows a number of reasons why
Hencken should be defeated, the chief vt
which Is that he is a creature of the Mis
souri Pacific Railroad Company, and that
his nomination was secured by Influences
other than Republican otes. The clrcalar

Governor Jones Finally Appoints
Colonel J. M. Montgomery.
Texorkana, Tex.. Oct- 19. News was re
ceived here to-day from Little Rock that
Governor Jones has decided upon the ap
pointment of Colonel J. M. Montgomery of
Texarkana, Ark., for tho newly created
office of County Clerk of Miller County. Tho
appointment was the outcomo of the census
enumeration, which found tho county po--sesaed
over 15,U inhabitants, and was
theiefor entitll to a county clerkship ac
cording to the requirements of tho law. The
appointment, though a good one. came as a
surprise to tho people or Miller County,
who had thought that A. B. Little was the
first and only candidate for the office. He
announced his candidacy at the beginning
of the county election, was Indorsed by the
managers' of the Democratic campaign, and
his namo finally appeared and was carried
through on the Democratlo ticket as the
candidate for the office, subject to the cen
The census resulted all right, and Little
was thought elected, but complications
came up shortly afterwards, which Involved
a question of law as to whether a man
could bo elected to an office before said
office was declared In existence. A final
decision was reached upon this subject,
which nullified all of the proceedings that
had previously been gone through. Little
was then compelled to re-run his race.
Meanwhile Colonel Montgomery entered the
tight, but. as Little was tho logical candi
date for the office, it was believed that his
appointment by the Governor was only a
matter of form. The final result Is re
ceived with considerable relief, as the case
had created much discussion In this sec
tion, and In many instances bad feelings
had been engendered.

Mathias was willing enough, and a" soon
as he became tho legal custodian of his
niece, he told her she might go and got
the license. Accordingly, Mary and Peter
went to the marriage license office, told
Clerk Emll Leonhardt what the uncle had
said, und demanded tho license.
The clerk looked at them sadly and re
proachfully. "You know I told you yesterday that jou
would have to bring the guardian here,"
"But we Just left him twenty minutes
ngo, and he was willing," dic'ared Peter,
with tlsir.g Ire.
"Makes no difference wh-it he told you."
said the clerk, "jou will h:ne to bring him
here, and let him tell It to me."
"Well, why didn't you fay to'." demand
"I did." said the clerk.
"You didn't." said Peter.
"Yes. ha did." said Mary.
And Peter was overruled.
The couple left the marriage licence of
fice again, minus a license. In an hour
they returned, and Peter was leading Unole
Mathias by the hand. Tho guardian gavo
his consent with due formality, made hi3
mark on the affidavit, and tho coveted
license was issued.
