It is understood that the comptroller and

that Jay Could does want another telegraph
and that he can be induced to take the Hal

easier to pay for the railroad. Negotiations
to that effect w ere in progress yesterday
and not unlikely may succeed. That is. If

that the thtee Alpena prisoners are
"llliukv' Morgan, .Minnie Coiighlin and
No. :;, as he is know 11 in the police circulars
scut out from this citv descriptive or the
rescuing part) that attacked Captain
Hoehne and Dctcttire Hiilligau at lta-
veuna. Hanley and Harrington were also
in the parly, but they are not at AliK-na.
Captain Hoehne was able to name and de-
serilie Morgan, Hanley and Harrington, but
it was Imivsille for him to remember very
much about the two remaining members of
the gang. When he took a look at the
thn-e Alpena captives yesterday, he at
once recognized all of them, i Coiighlin
was put down on the circular as
No. 2. He is a well known Cleveland crook
and was recently discharged from the Ohio
penitentiary on account of ill health, where
lie had served four years of a seven years'
term for burglary. He was here at the: time
of the fur burglary, but hecould not be con
nected with the affair and was permitted to
go. Captain -lloehu now-says that he Is
positive Coughliii was on the train when
McMunu was rescued. The name and his
tory of No. :s. the other man in custody,
have not been learned yet. Captain Hoelni
left Alpena with the prisoners last night.
He will stop at Detroit, where a siiuad of a
dozen Cleveland detectives will meet him.
and where requisition papers will lie wait
ing for him. l-roui Detroit the party wi
come to Cleveland by tioat, arriving here on
Saturday morning at break of day.
Keierring to the trip from Michigan to
Ohio, Suierintendent Scluuitt said: "I
could load a car with policemen to conduct
the prisoners, but Ulinkey's friends would
not hesitate to wreck a train and kill all in
nocent passengers upon it if there was a
chance to rescue Morgan thereby. I have
ordered the officers to take a boat at A Ipena;
go from thence to Detroit, and come home
on the Detroit and Cleveland boat- The
chances of a rescue on a boat are not grcaL
There will lie no trouble about a guard.
Alpena officers will take care not to let the
heavy reward slip through their lingers,
and 1 will see that lllinkev has a suitable
esi-ort of Cleveland officials"

and at Cambridge, thirty miles southeast of

simply as the first of a large series of pray

The M. K. committee reailutely objected to
this change. The offer vas Uien reversed,
but it so happened tha a church appoint

most of our preparations had been made
with reference tothelthof July, it was
not only not advisable, jut was hardly pos
