W. G. Baldwin, of the Baldwin
Felts Detective Agency, which has for
four months been trying to catch
tidna Alien and Wesley Edwards, the
fugitive members of the family which
shot up the Carroll Circuit Court oh
March 14. is in the city frr a settle?
ment of his accounts. Mr. Baldwin
failed to see the Governor yesterday,
because of the executive's absence
ircni the city, and will take up busl
!.? is matters with him to-day.
The cost of the man-hunt has not
been divulged by the Governor, and is
unknown. Reports have made It
reach far into the thousands, aside
Lrohl tho payment of rewards for the
capturo of the men now in custody.
Within an hour or two after tho
. the detective agency tvas re
t lined to catch the murderers. A
party started at once for HlllsvlUe.
r. ut could not reach there until early
the next morning, when Floyd Allen
M,d Victor Allen wore taken from the
hotel. where the older man lay
wounded, and were placed In hrrcst.
At Work in Mountains.
I'or weeks following detective
panics scoured the mountains look?
ing for the fugitives, raiding hundreds
of houses, watching the movements
ft every Individual, searching caves.
Using all the arts of the man-hunter.
Bases of operation were established,
from which the men worked. Sldna,
Edwards surrendered first, Claude
Allen was captured at tho point cf d
rifle and Frlel Allen was taken at his
father's home, where Iis had returned,
starving and ill.
But Sldna Allen and Wesley Ed?
wards have evaded every effort put
forth looking to their capture, and
iire Mill at targe. Gradually tho force
of detectives, ?.t first numbi ring
nearly thirty, was reduced, and for
weeks at a time not one of them
would be. in Carroll county. Then, on
information received troni some
source, two or throe would return
und hunt down the clue. The fugi?
tives have been reported from every
quarter of the United States, yet a
very large portion of the population
t i Carroll believes they arc still lu
the county and have never left It.
Only a day or two ago the dctCctlVi
agency was Informed by letter that
Sldna Allen ha-.l spent, tho preceding
two weeks at a certain house. The
Information came to naught.

TO ROYAL FAVOR
Recent Happenings Point to Re?
conciliation of the Marl
London, July 13.?The - efforts to ef?
fect n reconciliation between the Duke
end Duchess of Marlborough (Con*
suelo Vanderbllt), who have been liv?
ing apart for the last six years, are
being renewed by English friends of
tho duke, and It Is understood that
considerable hope Is or.tertalncd th.ut
tho couple may be brought together,
though the American family of ih.
duchess is believed to be us strongly
opposed ub ever to a reunion. The fuel
that both the duke und the duchess
recently havo been received by tho
King and Queen lends color to the to ?
ilet that there will bt a reconciliation
In the near future, while It seems tout
special pressure is being brought to
bear on the duchess by the royal
faintly. Alter the trouble arose be?
tween the Marlboroughs King Edward
refused to ulluw either oif. them to b<_
received at court, and care always
was taken to have neither of them
present at functions wnore Their Maj?
esties were lu attendance. On one oc?
casion, near the end of the late King's
reign, the Duke of Muriborough was
pri sent at a function or the Order ot
the Garter ut Windsor, out he was
COtlccably absent from the tea given
afterward by the King tor the. mem?
bers or the order.
The' present King and One en have
followed the example ol King Edward,
and it has been understood that
neither the Duke nor tho Duchora ot
Marlborough could expect the royal
favor again until there was a recon?
ciliation. Not only haa this situation
existed, but in all social affair? the
duke and duchess have gone their
separalo ways. They have had the
6iwiie friends and have been asked to
the sutne houses, but not at tho same
1)1 mos. They have lived .apart, the
duchess lu Sunderland House and the
fluke lu Great Court Street.
Tliu duke has continued to enjoy the
settlement of 950,000 a year he received
at the time of his marriage, but In tho
accounts of social happenings their
names never have been coupled during
the last six years. In these clrcum
stancos II is particularly interesting to
note that the Duchess of Marlborough
v.as present at tin- lust court thl.i sen
?oh, While at the dinner given at Lon?
donderry House on Tuesday night by
tile Marquis and Marchioness of Lon?
donderry, at which the King and Queen
were present, "those who had tho
honor of meeting Their Majesties In?
cluded the Austro-liutinarian atnbassa.
dor. the Duchess of Devonshire, the
Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, the
Duchess of Itoxburghe (May Ooelet),
the Marquis of Lansdowne, the Mai
quis und Marchioness of Salisbury, the
Marquis and Marchioness of Ormonde
nnd the Marquis and Marchioness of
The Marquis and Marchioness of
Londonderry enjoy the particular favoi
of the King ami Queen, and the mnr
Chioness also is a warm friend of the
D?ke of Marlborough. No one would
have ventured to ask the Duke anrt
I lUcheSS of Marlborough .to meet the
King and Queen without the pcrmlssh i.
of Their Majesties, and when this I-,
coupled with the previous reception of
the duchess at court It Is believed that
the present Intercession of their friends
has gone far toward bringing about a
reconciliation between the duke and
duchess. They did not go to Iajndon
d.-rry House together, and they de
; tried separately, but the necessary
opportunity "as afforded for a meeting
and for the friendly exchange of views
Which lias been so much sought for by
the duke's friends
yesterday afternoon the Duchess of
Marlborough was present at the royal
garden party at Windsor, and as the
duke was not one of the guests, this
may be Interpreted to mean that the
Ktl S and Queen are bringing further
pressure to bear to effect a reconcllla
tlon, but London society, which is keen
ly Interested In the negotiations, pre?
ll rs to believe that the means of BUC
cess slrendj lias bc-n achieved and that
Ihc dike and duchess have been ro
: to red to royal favor, while tne final
result?the resumption of the marriage
relations?is to be attained with as
