Chief of Police Manlove, Who Was Called, Diagnosed the Case as One of Plain Drunk
          Chief of Police  Manlove  was called at 3 o'clock this afternoon to take charge of  Hardin  D.  Ingram,  a well-known business man of this city, as it was feared he intended to throw himself in Blue River near the end of Elliott street.  His actions alarmed the residents of that part of the city and when the chief arrived at the scene of the excitement he found the man being guarded by half a dozen men.  An investigation that required only a few brief seconds convinced the officer that Mr. Ingram was only badly intoxicated and he was placed in jail to be slated on that charge.
