Philadelphia, April 13. Mnjor Phipps,
tho absconding Philadelphia ollicial, will
arrivo here to-day from Hamilton, Out., in
charge of Capt. II. J. Lindar and Officer Bell,
of Pinkerton's agency. Speaking of his
rearrest, District Attorney Graham says:
" I will endeavor to have Major Phipps
committed without bail. It has been
shown that $13,000 bail was insufficient to
insure his presence,jand tho chances are
that $20,000 bonds would not be any moro
efficacious in holding him. It is a matter
entirely discretionary with tho court, but 1
believe tho measures should bo taken to retain
tho Major for trial this time."
