Interest In the Gase Revived By
a New Arrest.
THIS SAID TO BE IMPORTANT.
In Fact Ono of tho Principal Acton In

Chicago, Feb. 10. A now and most
important link has been picked up in tho
Cronin murder cose and from all ap
pearances it is now reasonably certain
that the great murder conspiracy will bo
thoroughly exposed. This link consists
of tho arrest of one of the principal
actors of tho terrible tragedy of May 4.
Tho man who is under arrest, however,
is not Cooney "tho Fox,'" as was report
ed, and ho was not arrested in Michi
gan. Tho man who is said to have played a
more important part than Cooney in tho
bloody drama of the Cronin conspiracy
and butchery was arrested in St. Louvs
Monday evening by Olllcer Thomas of
tho Central station. The man has been
sought long and vainly and tho authori
ties had almost given up all hopes of
being able to capture him.
Chief Marsh was very reticent and re
fused to confirm tho reports. There is
no doubt however that an important
arrest has been made.
I'ni'ticularg of tho Arrest.
St. Louis, Feb. 10. Yesterday even
ing Olllcer Thomas, of Chicago, and De
tectives Fries and Ziegler, of this city,
arrested a man who is suspected of
, being connected with tho murder of Dr.
' Cronin in Chicago in May last. It is not
known in what part of tho city the man
was arrested, as all information in ro
gard to it is suppressed by the police au
thorities. The man arrested is not a citi
zen of St. Louis, but is a stranger who
has been in the habit of visiting here at
intervals. He is closely guarded at tho
police station, and no one is allowed ac
cess to his cell. Chief Huebler intimates
that the arrest will causo a sensation if
tho man proves to bo tho man whom
Chicago officials suspect him to be.
Six weeks ago Detective Thomas ar
rived in St. Louis in searcli of his man,
but found that he had tlown a day or
two before. Tho detective has been on
his trail over since and says that he fol
lowed him through nearly every
southern city. The man returned here
last Sunday and the police say he was
arrested on the street. His description
is given as follows: Medium size, five
feet seven inches in height, weight about
160 pounds, dark hair and dark mus
tache. Chief Huebler stated positively that ho
is not "Cooney tho Fox." Local mem
bers of the Clan-na-Gael say that they
are unaware of the presence in tho city
of any one connected with the Cronin
case, and cannot iniarine who tho sus
. pect is, if he is not "Tho Fox."
Later The man arrested as being
connected with tho murder of Dr. Cro
nin. has just been interviewed by a
United Prois reporter. He said: "My
name is John B. Kelley. I had nothing
to do with the murder of Dr. Cronin. I
admitted to the chief of police, however,
that I am the party the Chicago police
are looking for. It is a case of mistaken
identity. I first visitea Chicago Feb. 15,
1889. I left there the latter part of Juno
the same year. I have never belonged
to the Clan-na-Gael or any other Irish
organization. I know none of the peo
ple accused of murdering Dr. Cronin.
The only Irish agitator I know is Thomas
Desmond, of San Francisco. I came to
St. Louis Aug. 15 last, and have board
ed at the People's house, corner Fourth
and Lucas avenue, ever since."
The prisoner appeared ill at ease and
tried to evade all direct questions. Ho
denied knowing Alexander Sullivan. He
stated that he was a clerk, but refused
to say where he had been employed.
Detective Thomas, of Chicago, stated
since the interview that Kelley is be
lieved to be Smith the man who drovo
Dr. Cronin to tho Carlson cottage on tho
night of May 4 last. Tho proprietor of
the People's house corroborates Kelley's
story as to boarding there sinco Aug. 15.
Tho Prisoner Iilentlileil tin Smith.
St. Louis, Feb. 19. Detectives Col
lins and Clark, of Chicago, have just ar
rived, and have identified the Cronin
suspect in this city as tho man supposed
to be Smith, who took Dr. Cronin to the

Tho Victim Illnmod tho Hatfield Gang
for Forcing Him to Murder.
Pikeville, Ky., Feb. 19. Ellison
Mounts was hanged at this place yester
day for participating in the murder of
Miss Alafair McCoy and her brother. He
was cool to the last, and as tho black
cap was pulled over his face, declared
that tho Hatfield outlaw gang forced
him to engage in tho murder. Tho drop
fell at 12:a7 o'clock.
Tho execution was practically public.
Tho scaffold was erected in tho outskirts
of tho town in a valley overlooked by
tho graveyard. A small board fence
was uuilt around tho instrument of
death, moro to avoid tho law prohibiting
public huncitig, than to prevent the
multitude from witnessing tho proceed
ings. In view of tho threats made by
tho condemned man's friends to rescue
him tho grentssfc caro was observed to
prevent such an arrangement. All
strangers to the authorities were ex
cluded from the inclosuro.
