Since then a well known Conneilsvillo at- torney went to Harrisburg for the same purpose and several Uniontown people have been active towards the same end.

So far the search for a will among the late Mrs. Smith's effects has been fruitless. Neither have any papers indicating the provisions of a will been found.

Mr. Bufano's clerk, -wno cashed tho bogus checks, is a reliable young Ital- ian who has been with him for a num- ber of years, and it was only the sup- nosed endorsement of Mr. Marietta, that caused him to cash the checks. A dispatch to the morning papers from Charleroi will likely throw some light on the identity of the man who forged the checks here. The dispatch says: "The police today arrested two men for attempting to pass a less check at the First National Bank. The men gave their names as C. E. Miller of Greensburg and Charles Baker of West Virginia. "Baker approached Cashier R. H. Rush this afternoon with a check on the Second National Bank of Union- town, payable to Harry Williains and signed by J. G. Bans. It was indorsed by W. H. Coles, proprietor of the Hotel this city. The cashier was suspicious, and while questioning tha man sent an employe of the bank to lock the street door. Baker made a dash for the street, with Sir. Rush, al- ter him. Baker was joined outside by Miller. The two men managed to out- strip Hush, but were caught by Daniel Anderson, who held them until assist- ance came. "The men tried to get away from Anderson by- offering him bnt they found he could not be-bought. They are now being held at the city lockup. It was understood this even- ing that their right names are "Benny" James of Uniontown and Harry Keller of Greensburg." May Use Coal.
