Cairo. 111., July 5. sheriff Thomas
Porter has just arrived home to-day,
having in charge Thomas Aiken, whom
he airested at Ikbcock's Hole, Cusier
county, Colorado wii a requisition Irom
the governor on the l'lth of June, for the
murder ot Augustus Stewart, iu 1S04.
Stewart was a well-to-do farmer ot this
county. The murder was perpetrated
tor the purpose of robbery, and about
$1,000 were obtained. Aiken, at the
time of his arrest, was engaged in stock
raising. At the preliminary trial, in
before Esquire O. W. Overton, lie
pleaded guilty und made a lull confes
sion. He was placetl in jail here, and
escaped Irom contlnenieni, slnee which
time sevsl important witnesses have
died Jtr the time ho committed tho
murder he had two accomplices, by the
namt ol Glide, who tied the country, and
have not. and probably will never be ap
prehended. Sheritl l'orter deserves con

himself so vigilant in arresting the crim

knowing that the highest crime known
to our law had been coinmitted, and a
crime that Is becoming learlully (n quent.
Within a little more than a year three
men (all colored) have been killed, two
of them on our streets in broad daylight,
and although In Ihese eases the perpetra
tors were arrested, utter a slight Investi
gation they were released. Immunity
Irom punishment has emboldened others
and we see the result iu a third killing,
iu which the simple statement that it
was done in sclJ-dctcnse is deemed sulll-
cient and no arrests aie mailt. Do our
people tealize where such. laxi

ready te admit that human life is no
more secure in Cairo Ihan it is on the

Comings says the man was hurried he

that as Judge liird is a colored man lie
