Hartford City, Ind., Dec. 4. An un

balanced, believed to be Grover Ford
of Denmark, Va., who is wanted for
the alleged murder of Charles Cash
and Miss Lydia Entaminger June 2.",
1903, in Virginia, is held here awaiting
instructions from that state. He is
said to bear a striking likeness to a
photograph of Ford and on his cloth
ing was found the name "G. Fool." It
is stated that there is a reward'of $300
offered by the governor ojf Virginia
for tne capture or tne ruginve.
The case of C. E. Shiveley, Guardi
an, of Mrs. Mary Martin, insane,
against the Northwestern Life Insur
ace Company, which has been pending
for some time, was disposed of in the
Wayne Circuit Court yesterday. Some
years prior to the death of the lateWill
Martin, he borrowed about $600 on an
insurance policy in the Northwestern.
The late George Schurnian advanc
ed the money and the policy was as-
signed to Schurman. Schurnian died :
and the note for the payment of the j
loan went to his heirs. When Mar-!
tin's death occurred the transaction
became complicated bj' the fact that
Mrs. Martin, the beneficiary named in
the policy, was insane. The North
western Insurance Company of course
would not settle until the court had
acted upon the matter and the action
taken was of a friendly sort.
The contention was made that no
matter if there had been a clear as
signment of the policy to secure a loan
the beneficiary could not legally be
compelled to assign any of the insur
ance money toward the liquidation of
a debt of this character, unless it
could be shown that money had been
borrowed for the beneficiary. In the
testimony presented it was shown by
one of the heirs of George Schurman
that Mrs. Martin herself, sometime
after the loan had been made, declar
ed to the witness that the money had
been procured for her benefit. This
disposed of the matter in the court's
mind, and the original claim of the
Schurman heirs against the estate of
Martin for $600 was sustained.

that this condition of affairs simpiy

However, attorneys are necessary i'i

as a whole, therefore, is not greatly af

In the Wayne Circuit Court yester
day, Henry Kroma, Roy King and
Vera Sparks, the three .young men al
leged to have assaulted and robbed An
drew Lutz, were arraigned on the
charge of highway robbery- They
entered pleas of not guilty and because
of their poverty-stricken condition,
Judge Fox appointed Attorney Will S
Bond, as their legal counsel. The po- j
lice declare that there is a strong!
case against the young men. The sto
ry, however, that the department had
some rather conclusive evidence that
Kroma, King and Sparks were con
cerned in the robbery of the Hall
Hardware store, was unfounded.
Supt. Bailey said yesterday that while
he believed this trio might have com
