bnolccd as Fred Brokaw.
At I he same time it seems to have
been established that though Ellis and
Brokaw are the same person, the man
sought is not; the man wanted in In
dianapolis. The alleged murderer bore
a remarkable likeness to Ellis or Bro
Hj kaw a likeness so complete and satis-
j .f.yintr that, a photograph of Brokaw
sent out bv the Pittsburg police in
HJ circular fonn. and which he admits to
be his portrait, has been positively
identified by a woman who believed
she married him, and n man who be

father swooned and the woman tried

"Had you heard of any change of cir

"Whether he had suffered reverses, or
trouble of any kind, except his nomina

automobile. As the machino' was
turned east from the driveway the
lights were directed onto tho newspa
per men. but the car proceeded east
toward Mlldison avenue.
Apparenth' believing that the ro
rcporters were there to receive the
money, Chauffeur Pierce drove into
Orchard avenue, stopping directly
across the sidewalk jn front of tho
newspaper representatives. The auto
mobile at the same time was quickly
turned about and came back to the
Orchard avenue corner at considerable
speed. "When no answer was made by
the reporters to Pierce's unintelligible
query, both buggy and automobile pro

horse and buggy were taken back to
