for n Long: Term.
Otto Harrison and George Thompson,
hardly more than twenty-one years old,
were charged In the police court yesterday
with harness stealing from the stables or
merchants, and liverymen in all sections ot
the city. Much or the success or the men
was due to the quickness with which hey
disposed of the goods they stole, which
made it more puzzling for tire defectives.
In most instances the harness was sold
long before the theft was discovered. The
men were seen "by Private Watchman
Myers and ''oliceman Sullivan -m Louisiana
avenue Tuesday morning, near Benzingers
Horse Bazai. The officers' suspicions
