--John C. Crewson
, a young man wearing the garb of a soldier, is under arrest for swindling William H. Burton
out of a $20 note.
The offence is alleged to have been committed in the house of E. Hubbard
& Co., on Cary street. The accused desired to borrow $3, and offered a tempting bonus for the use of it. Mr. Burton
produced his $20 note, and Crewson is charged with handing it to some mysterious ‘"Orderly Sergeant
,"’ who, instead of making change for it, put it in his pocket and made tracks.
, after a partial investigation, continued the case until this morning.
