ey and pay the alleged debt to the

ged and maimed followers of Lee."
Sheriff Harburger, who arrested
Sickles in a civil suit brought by
the state to recover the money also
indited a letter to many of the rich
est men in New York asking them
to aid the aged veteran.
The sheriff dealt gently with the

000 bond for the veteran's freedom.

NEW YORK, Jan. 27. Testimony
in support of its contention by the
government that Andy Carnegie was
a troublemaker in the steel trade
and that the Carnegie Steel was
taken over by the Steel Corporation
R
him, "it's a bit of formal business
today. You know I have to -serve
you with these papers. I am sorry
I have to do so but I have no
choice."
"It is all right" Sickles replied,
tossing the unopened order and com
plaint on the library table. "You
are one of the best friends I've got,
Sheriff."
The General signed the bond in
a flowing hand. "That handwriting
is not so bad for a man more than
92 years, Sheriff" he commented.
There was a fee of five dollars ow
ing to the county for the service of
the papers. Sickles summoned Miss
Edith Wilmerding, his housekeeper
to pay it. She came into the room
with her hands full of pennies but
tripped on a rug and scattered them
on the floor. The general assisted
her in picking them up and shook
hands with the Sheriff when he de
parted. ATHLETE ADITS
HE IS NOT AN
AMA
Thorpe Played Baseball
.For Money Three
Years Ago
NEW YORK, Jan. 27. James
Thorpe the Indian athlete and
Olympic champion admitted that the
charges of professionalism against
him were true in a letter sent to the
registration committee of the Ama
teur Athletic Union which met to
day to investigate the case. He ad
mitted he played baseball on a pro
fessional team three years ago.
The Olympic hero admitted nlay-
ing ball in North Carolina during
vacation not for money, but love of
the game. He didn't know it was
wrong as other college men played.
Thorpe's winning of the Panthalon
Decathlon events at Stockholm and
later his wonderful performances
which won the all-arund champion
ship stamped him as the most mar
velous athlete of modern times. He
will be obliged to return all trophies
won and the standing of the Olymp
ic games will be revised giving the
men first places who were second
to the Indian. The loss of points
won by Thorpe still leaves a wide
margin for the United States at the
Olympic games.
