Galesburg, Ill., August 23.
John CARLSON, business manager of a wholesale grocery house under the control of the Oriental Tea Company of Chicago, was arrested and taken to jail, charged with the embezzlement of $1,400. The proprietors have suspected CARLSON for some time, but delayed arrest in order to obtain proof positive. CARLSON has always sustained a good reputation, and his present action has caused considerable surprise among merchants and business men with whom he associated.
