constituted that the condldutes sbould

The local police disclosed a scheme

The colored man arrived on a train
Saturday night. Ho was accompan
ied by a white man who gave his
namo as Ccorgo Armstrong. Tho two
registered at tho Fultz hotel and oc
cupied the same room during the
night. On Sunday morning Armstrong
was short a match case nnd $1.C0 in
cash. Ho accused his room-mate of
robbing him, but Wjllson promptly
anl strongly denied It. The two sep
arated, the colored man starting out
to make friends with local citizens of
his race, w'hfle Armstrong went di
rectly to tho mayor's office to swear
out a warrant. The former was
found bV Officer George on n street

Wilson made signs to prove his
affliction. He was taken directly to
tho mayor's office, however, and was
Interviewed by Chief of Police Clem
ents. Tho chief learned that he had
been to the home of Mr, George Sites
on East Chestnut street earlier In the
morning and that he had begged a
quarter there. A description of the
beggar given by Mr. Sites tallied ex
actly with that of the man in cus
tody. His suspicion being aroused, Chief
Clements accused tbe man of being
a fake mute and finally succeeded In
malting him acknowledge the decep
tion. After his secret had been dis
covered Wilson became .very talkative
and told many things that were Im
prudent. He admitted having pass
ed himself as a mute for several years
and acknowledged that he had made
his living soliciting sympathy from
unsuspecting; colored people.
The man had in his possession a
record book In which he kept a list
of nil donators and the amount of
their donations. Tho sums of money
ranged from .five cents to twenty
dollars. This record book showed
that he had imposed upon citizens of
nearly every town In southwestern
Ohio and northern Kentucky. He car
ried, two well written guarantees of
his honesty nnd genuineness. The
papers were signed by the pastor of
the Zlou colored-church of Cincinnati,
Ohio, arid stated that the bearer was
an honest, God fearing man who was
in need and who had lost his par
ents and family during an epidemic
of diphtheria several years ago. The.
papers stated further that he had
been educated In a deaf mute asylum
