business manager, Maj. J.B. Pond,

several warm personal friends in
this city, who know him to be a
man of honor, whose word is his

them stoutly maintaining his
innocence in the matter. The

How a Smooths ed FretHH
manPlijed a Confidence Game
on a Xaldea YoaBg
"Eor some past there has been
boarding at the St Nicholas Hotel,
on Ninth street, a Frenchman,
named August Comjeans, who in
his daily peregrinations to and from
the house, often saw a comely look
ing girl, who was employed in the
family of Mr. St. Felix, the grocer,
living and doing business just north
of the hotel. Comjeans wlshedto
make the acquaintance of the girl,
and sought an introduction through
Mr. St Felix, telling him that he
was greatly attracted by her appear
ance, and that he might make her
his wife, as he was in search of a'
life-partner. Mr. St Felix refused
to introduce him, but in bis absence
one day recently, Comjeans man
aged to obtain an introduction to
the girl through another par
ty. The acquaintance resulted
on Sunday in a buggy ride
about the city and into the country
and back. Durinp; the triD. the
smoothtongued villain, for such he
really was, made the girl believe
that he was in quest of a wife ; that
he had fallen in love with her at
first sight ; and that she was just
the person to suit him j in hrief, he
proposed marriage and was ac
On their return to the city the
Frenchman and the unsophisticated
girl proceeded to the St CharlesHo
tel, where the vllllan there made
her believe that, owing to their en
gagement and under all the circum
stances, there would not be anything
improper n their remaining at the
hotel over night, and oceupyjng the
same apartments. They did so.
Next morning early they went to
arpstaurant and had breakfast, and
after getting outside of a square
meal, Comjeans, wjtb. a politeness
characteristic) of a Frenchman,
begged to be excused for a few mo
ments. He went out and failed to
return. The victim of misplaced
confidence soon scented a "nigger
in the wood'pile," and finally con
cluded that shp had been taken In.
Sbpftfonce proceeded to tlje house
o; yr. gt. Felix, and rojated to him
the story of her wrongs.
A complaint was iramedlateJy
made out against Comjeans at the
police court, charging him with se
duction, and tbp warrant of arrest
was placed In the hands of Marshal
Snowden, who failed to capture
him, as he had left on an early train
for the East. Telegrams were sent
in every direction, but no clue has
as yet been obtained to his whereabouts.
