GEN. SIGKLES'S HOME
BESIEGED BY SHERIFF
Jlnrburjror Has State Warrntit

0M WAHKIOIt IS DEFIANT
"Over My Dead Kody!" He Says,
From llehind Hamparts
Family May Aid lllin.
The L-oubles of (Jen. Daniel K. .Sickles
culminated yesterday when the Stutu nf
New York sued him for V3,i'i and
obtained a court order for the civil
arrest of the veteran.
Sheriff Julius HsrhUrger has that writ
now and will sene, It to-morrow morn
ing, ir he can. Then tho defendant
will either have to put up n bond of
$30,0tm to pay any Judgment that may
be obtained tigalnt him. with the costs,
or else go to Ludlow street Jail.
As desperate as the sltilatlun seemed
tn be for Gen. Sickles, there were In
timations lust night that his f.unlly and
certain friends might agree to puy the
amount for which hu Is sued upon one
condition. Fromstate mutitsmadoby Mrs.
Sickles and others this condition Is that
Miss WIlmerdliiK, for years the
General's housekeeper, shall withdraw
entirely from his hous-ehold.
Mrs. Sickles said last night that with
the obstlnncy sometimes exhibited by
tho very old, the General, who Is now
f6, had so far declined tu accept the
condition. Miss Wllmerdlng was not
Visible Jt sterday
Kven If Gen. Sickles remains ob
durate to the pleading of his family,
still the Journey to the civil prison may
not be made to-morrow morning, and It
Is possible no bond will be forthcoming
either. There wag every Indication last
night that the doughty old warrior Is
going to try to prevent the service of
any papers on him. Sheriff Harburger
yesterday admitted that he had no right
to break down a door to obtain service.
And last night the Sickle part of the
home at Fifth avenue and Ninth street
was not only tightly barricaded, but
there were evidences of a stout gnrrl
son within. This never say die look to
the premises was heightened by the
appearance In the windows of a number
of American flans. Also the curtains
were raised for the first time In a long
One report even had It that the
Geneial's ilnal declaration had been
that "the Sheriff could only enter over
my dead body."
Attorney-General Carmody. who hn
been looking Into the case since Comp
troller Sohmer found tho $2s,4"t; short
age in the accounts of Gen. Sickles as
chairman of the New York State Monu
ments Commission, brought the suit yes
terday. He sets fortfi that the chairman
personally handled about $445,611 In
twelve years for which he turned In
satisfactory vouchers for fill but
Thl shortage wns discovered last fall
about the lime th General was having
more financial troubles about the levy
on his war relics, the mortgage on his
house nnd the accountings of estate! he
held In trust. At that time the
General's wlfo had agreed to save the
war relies and thero were dim proapects
or a reconciliation.
When tho shortage wns discovered
Stanton Sickles, son or the General,
paid IS.OOO to the State, whli cut down
the Indebtedness by that much, nnd said
that ns soon ns a Spanish estate or
his mother's, had been settled the
balance would be paid. Hut the marital
difficulties of the heads of the family
have not been smoothed out and no
more payments have been made.
As soon as the suit was tiled yester
day, Deputy Attorney-General Kennedy
obtained the writ ror the General's ar
rest rrom Justice Itudd of the Supreme
Court, made nn appointment to meet
Sheriff Harburger here at 3:30 o'clock
and then took a train ror New York.
Jn the mean time word or whit was
to be done got to the Sickles home and
very promptly the warlike preparations
became visible. The old negro butler
who guards the front door would not
open It more than two Inches nnd there
It was caught by n chain. Stanton
Sickles, who had been reported to have
gone to tho country with his mother,
showed up from somewhere with
several other persona and all went In
side. "You can't we the Gln'ral," was the
negro's only answer to Inquiries.
"I have important news for him,"
said one visitor, "he Is going to bo ar
rested." "I don't cate If he's going to be shot,"
was the answer, "you ain't a-goln' to
Stanton Sickles stuck his head out of
the door to speak with a man and was
ordered back Into the house. Hvcry
window curtain all around the flrfct floor
went up. so that not only Kirth avenue,
