The Scare About Edward Hice

Vanishes Into Thin Air.

The sensational article which appeared in a paper published last evening regarding the disappearance and probable defalcation of Edward Hice, who was employed as a helper at the Hemingray glass works and who occupied the position as collector for the local union, No. 91, of the American Flint Glass Workers' Union, have proven utterly unwarranted.

Hice returned to his home, on South Vine street, last evening and had intact the entire sum which it was thought he had abstracted from the trust funds of the Union. He had merely gone to Indianapolis, to visit for a few days, and as he went rather unexpectedly, he had no opportunity to report his leaving to anyone and knew nothing of the solicitude that has been felt over his rather mysterious disappearance until after his arrival in the city.

Settlement was made by him with the treasurer of the local union last night and the entire matter satisfactorily explained to the members of the organization and his firends.
