USED GEORGE ROSE AS A CLOAK. New York, September !t. There is no truth in the sensational story that a man of the name of Young Hess bet a large sum of money on Colin last Saturday on George Roses account. The facts are these: Hess admitted betting .$.120 on John M. P., which he lost: he then recouped by betting on Colin. He collected a portion of the winnings on Colin and settled all but of the John M. 1. losing markers. These transactions were made in George Roses name. The transactions were uncovered when Bob Lloyds cashier refused to pay Hess today when he called around to collect the Colin winnings. Lloyds cashier was suspicious of Hess and investigated.
