LANBiKfJ, Mich., Nov. 23. Since the An

there has been considerable inquiry regard
ng the man who cut the ropa Rumor has
connected tho work with the natnos of sev
eral parties residing in various parts of the
dountry, but the individual who wai appar
ently the most prominently identiuod by
the publio in relation to the casa is Mr. C. L
Pendleton, who livei near Lo1Ia, MIclt.
The resklonti of the town have lxwn sui

who cut the ropo, and they believe tli.it ha

former associates shunlilm as they would a
leper. That they nro wrontr in tboir suspi

that Mr. Pendleton built the BoaiTold on
which the men were" hung. A reporter
called on him at his home, three miles north--west
of Leslio, pleasantly loo ito 1 on ono of
tho most productivo farms in central Michi

he entered froely, into a conversation rela
tive to the matter. For two years previous
to '85 Mr. Pendleton resided in Culoaao.
Five years immediately proceeding; his re

the city as chief of the Are department, ami

cago. "When Sherry and Coaler wro exe
cuted in 'TO for the murder of O'Connell,
Pendleton erected the soadold. When
Tracey was throttled several years later
for the killing of an ofllcer, Pendleton again
built tho gallows. In 'S3 another execution
was added to the list. Jacobson, an easily
angered character, in an unguarded mo

occupation, but his skill trai again in do
mniid in tho .sprinar of the present yoar
when the throe sons of I'nly wore hanged
for murdoring a comrade, when Mr. Pen
dloton built the gallows.
Tills scaffold was takeu apart and pla-ed
in the jail basement for future use. No

but by other hands than Mr. Pendleton's,
and the four AnarchUts drew their last
breath on it. Tlta assertion that ho cut the

that he was at home, and not out of Leslie

However, the gentleman venture the re
mark that he knows who did cut the Cord

that he is not a resident of Michigan.

watohed them going in that direction for
over one hundred feet The crois-examlna-tlon
did not break the force of the direct
testimony. In the former trial Arensdorf
sought to establish an alibi by testimony
that he camo out of Junk's and went east
from the scene of the murder.
Only three witnesies were examined in
the Arensdorf murder caoe yosterday, Al
derman Grady, John Robson, and Albert
