by Constable Noary, The constable
himself Is not particularly anxious to

A few days ago a pair of pole climb
ers, plyers and other tools were taken

who was employed for a few days by
the company was suspected of making
olf with them, He has not been seen

seen though, It Is nld, by a few sub
scribers of tho telephone company,
whom Hull visited ami whose 'phones
he tampered with ami put nut til ser
vice, John Mci'abe, the Canaan street
grocer, and Thomas Tender, on the
same street, were two of the subscri
bers who sent in complaints about
some person having visited their
'phones on a pretext of making some
repairs, meddled with the apparatus
until It was rendered useless. ISoth
subscribers were warm or oven hot
with Indignation, ami Hull, whom It is
claimed to have been, was the subject
of some caustic criticism,
What Hull's purpose was in tamper
ing with the 'phones can only be con
jectured, and ills explanation is await
ed with eager Interest by the tele
phone company's manager,
Constable .Wary has tried to locate
Hull, but he is tis elusive as the ico
