H. N. Ordway Must Face For-

Court at Davenport.
LOSES FIGHT IN CHICAGO
Denied- Writ of Habeas Corpus for
Release from Jail IowaOfflcera
. Have First Call on Him.
Judge Chetlain, in Chicago, yester
day afternoon denied a writ of habeas
corpus for the release from the Cook
county Jail of H. N. Ordway, alias
Harry O. West, who Is wanted In the
tri-ctties. and In various other sections
of the country for alleged bank swii
dies. The officials of tne, Iowa Na
tional bank, in Davenport, one of the
victims, have been hot on the trail of
Ordway and his allies, and have a
requisition from Governor Deneen la
the hands of Davenport officers in Chi
cago ready to apply In bringing hlaa
to the city on the other aide of the
river where he will be prosecuted to
the limit of the law.
Ordway apparently has strong finan
cial backing, as a determined fight by
several criminal lawyers has thus far
been made in his benalf. Forgery Is
the charge that he has to answer to In
Davenport. It will be several days
probably before Ordway will be
brought to Davenport, as he Is to be
detained in Chicago as a witness at
the hearing of J. B. Hardbeck, one of
his associates, who is charged there
with swindling.
Get S30,000 ta One Year.
It Is alleged that in the. past year
Ordway and his gang have secured up
wards of f.50,000 from various banks
on forged paper. Ordway, the detec
tives claim, was the directing head
of the crowd, and that he lived in a
laviBhly furnished establishment In
Chicago," from which he gave (his in
structions to his co-workers. It Is
charged that OiMway Tn person passed
the. forged check In Davenport, where
he obtained $400. He tried his game
In Rock Island, but failed. However,
he was more successful In Moline, one
