By these witnesses tho state showed
that Lieutenant Becker and Jack Rose
were for a long time preceding tho
murder on tho most Intimate and
friendly terms, whatever way their af
fairs pointed. Becker and his wife
dined with the Roses. Becker and
Rose met In restaurants little fre

spoke cautiously when eavesdroppers
were by. A waiter saw Rose give
money to Becker on two occasions.

Becker sent back word for Roso to

There was a witness to swear that

IMank Itoad from Narrows-burg.
In tlio last issue of tho Record at
tention Is drawn to tho fact that the
state of Pennsylvania is to build a
macadam road from Honcsdalo to
Narrowshurg. This calls to mind that
about tho time tho Erie railroad was
opened through from New York to
Lako Erie in 1S4S tho country was
passing through an epidemic of
plank roads. As Narrowshurg was
tho nearest and most convenient
point at which Uoncsdalc could con
nect with the railroad, a plank road
was constructed between tho two
points, over which a lino of four
horse Concord coaches mado dally
Narrowshurg was an important ex
press Btatlon, and a dining hall was
maintained there until tho Lacka
waxen branch drew tho travel to that
line. After this Narrowshurg be
came of lessor importance and fewer
trains stopped. A few years ago the
dining hall was removed the glory
of the town departed.
Tho writer remembers making a
trip in November, 1850, on top of a
"Concord" over tho "Honesdale
plank," from Narrowshurg to Hones
dale, sitting with tho driver, who was
an old timer and full of ermlniscen-

It has been some time since a
wild cat story has been received hero
and the occurrence in Wayne county
will be of interest to all residing
therein. Our Tyler Hill correspond

tacking a man at that place on
Tuesday night about dark back of K.
P. Johnston s property. Sir. Wag-

Johnston, was in tho latter's house
last evening and heard a peculiar

He Immediately returned to tho
house for his gun but as he was re-
turning to the place ho saw the cat
leap up the hill toward the woods
Ho took a chance shot though and he
was probably successful for a scries

who' not'.being prepared for tho suti-"'

cat sprang at him and he grasped it
and flung It from him and again the
cat made for the woods. When Wag
gee recovered from the shock he
picked up his gun and followed but
in the dark he lost sight of it and it
was seen no more. Later in the
night E. E. Olver and T. B. Welsh
and son Orvllie put a dog on the
scent nut atter a run of some dis
tance returned. Waggeo received
several minor wounds and scratches
and a torn shirt but otherwise was
none the worse for tho encounter.
It is thought that tho cat was
wounded and will die as Waggee's
hands were covered with blood af
ter he flung the animal from him.

The following letter was received
by August Bergsteln of this place tho

slaughter, Similar letters have been
received by parties in Scranton and

ARREST OF A ST. PETERSBURG
Charged With Fraud In Russia and
Manslaughter In Spain Inter
view of tho Two Ambassa
Somo months ago, as our readers
may remember wo rofered In these
columns to the great scandal caus
ed, In St. Petersburg, and in Rus
sia generally, by a noted Banker
who absconded, leaving a deficit of
over live millions of rubles.
Tho Russian police sought for him
for a long time ln vain for it eeoms
he had not left tho least trace of his
flight and tho contlnuod search over
Europe and America proved unavail
Yesterday, however, a Spanish In
spector accompanied by two officers
from Scotland Yard and acting un-
Hon InotriipHnnu nf tho Rnnnlsh Am-
rested him on his way from the Ho
tel where he was staying, to the
steamship office. It seems that It
was his evident intention to take pas
sage for New York. From informa
tion received by the Ambassador, he
had been in hiding in Spain, where
ho lived with a woman and with his
daughter. A few days before arrlv
ing ln London ho had quarrelled with
another Russian, who was mortally
wounded by a revolver shot during
tho scuffle, and who only lived long
enough to denounce his assailant.
In an interview with the Russian
Ambassador, it seems that tho name
ho had been using in Spain, and
which he gave on being arrested was
not his real one, Slanesselna being
Imply an alibi, but after comparing
the prisoner with photographs in his
possession, tho Russian Ambassador
recognized him as Alexis Ivanovitch,
the criminal hanker who eloped with
live millions of rubles; ho is a native
of St. Petersburg, a widower 48
years old, with an only daughter
that he left in Spain on escaping
from that country.
On being arrested, two of Slanes-
selna's or Alexis Ivanovitch portman
teaus wero seized but although
strictly searched nothing but person
al effects wero found in thorn, in
spito of which, tho Russian Ambas
sador declares that prisoner ought to
havo several million rubles some
where. Tho Russian and Spanish Ambas
sadors conferred yesterday evening
as to whether tho prisoner should bo
conveyed to Spain or to Russia, and
after an interviow with tho Home
Secretary, and in accordance with
tho extradition treaty in England,
Russia and Spain, it was agreed that
tho prisoner should bo conveyed to
Spain, to stand 'his trial for man
slaughter, and that only after his
trial can the Russian government ask
Spain, through diplomatic channels,
for his extradition
