An Enquirer special states that Francis TIERVAN and E. J. THORN, of Springfield, Ohio, were yesterday held to bail at Wapakaneta, Ohio, to answer a charge of forgery.  It is said that forged paper to amount of $100,000 has been negotiated among farmers by these two men.  Their plan was to get some farmer who could not read to sign what purported to be a contract for the agency of a patent plow between the farmer and R. R. Fenner & Co., but which was really a personal note.
