JAILED FOR FORGEltY. Checkered Career or a Ooce Wealthy CltUaa of Claclanatl >'ow Behind CESCIXXATI, May Harry Bates, a well-known ex-policeman of this city, is in jail at Dayton with a charge of for- gery hanging over him. It seems that Bates succeeded in getting several bogus checks cashed. To some of the paper Bates had signed the name of his unole, a Mr. Smith, living at Enon, Clark County. Ono of his victims was a butcher, who, when he discovered the swindle, caused the arrest of Bates. It is probable that others will appear to prosecute and Bates' prospects of reach- ing the penitentiary are very promising. Bates has had a very checkered career. His grandfather, John Bates, of this city, left him a fortune. Bates pro- ceeded to dissipate his large inheritance. For a wile he ran the Baker House at Dayton, but lost money. He returned to this city and became a member of the police force. For some time he behaved himself. He fell from grace, however, and finally degenerated into a common bum. He is connected with one of the oldest, and at one time wealthiest, fami- lies in this city. STRIKERS DISCHARGED. Demand of Traekmea on the Lake Road for laoreased Fay With an Unexpected Answer. CLKVKLAKD, May Monday about fifty laborers employed in this city as trackmen on the Lake Shore railroad struck for an advance in wages of twen- ty-five cents per day.

Tuesday a committee called at the local general offloe and was Informed that the entire gang had been discharged. An official also stated that Italians had been employed in their places. This was immediately reported to the strikers and a crowd of them gathered about tho Alabamastreet yards Tuesday afternoon. One of the assistant super- intendents telephoned the Central sta- tion that the old employes were threat- ening violence to the Italian and asked for police protection. Lieu- tenant Dunn with a detail of officers im- mediately started for the scene, bat there was no sign of trouble. VICTIM OF TeniMe Hafferlnfrs of a Young Girl in a Stark County Village. ALLIANCE, O., May Seven years ago a dog bit Laura Grim, the twelve- year-old daughter of a wealthy farmer living at Harrisburgt Stark County, eight miles west of here. The wound healed and nothing more was thought of it until a week ago, when the child was attacked by symptoms of hydro- phobia. She to .now a raving maniac, having terrible paroxysms at the sight of water. She foams at tho mouth, snaps Yiciously at every one who comes near, and has to be chained to the floor. Physicians can do nothing, and the girl's mother is almost insane from grief and fear. There is serious talk of smothering the victim, as her case is hopeless and it would put her out of agony. The neighborhood is greatly excited, for the dog had bitten several other children. FINDLAY'8 SENSATION. Death of Strickler, the Detective. Still a Mystery Startling Developments Ex- pected.
