A RIVAL LKOISLATLItE SET I P.
AnasTA, Me., Jan. 12. At twenty mm
utes to six this evening the Republican
members of the senate and house of repre
sentatives proceeded to the state-house for
the purpose of organizing a legislature. The
movement was entirely unknown to the
Fusiocists aud but few of the Republicans
outside of the immediate members were
a ware ot the position of affairs. The news
thut the Republicans had taken possession
of the state-house spread rapidly and caused
great rejoicing among Republicans who
have been impatient to have just this result
brought about. Mr. Ltimpson, president of
the senate, when he saw people assembling
proceeded to Gun. Chamberlain's headquar
ters, and excitedly said, "I protest against
these men coming in."' The general inform
ed Lanipson that he should permit the men
to come in and stay as long as they pleased.
There wits no forcible resistance whatever.
The halls were lighted, minor officers of
previous legislatures familiar with the
prcmincs taking hold and lending their assistance.

SHE EUAN'S CAPTURE.
V H IT THE ST. LOUIS PAPERS II AVE TO BAT
ABOUT IT MITCH NEMO TUB LEADER OK
A OA NO OK MASKED ROIIIIEKS.
In last Sunday morning's issue wc stated
that officer Sheehan had arrested one Mitch
Nemo who was badly wanted in St. Louis
for having committed various crimes in that
city, but especially for being the lender of
a gang of roblwrs who torcibly entered tho
house- of an old former residing betwocn
East St. Louis and Belleville. The follow
ing on this point, from yesterday's St. Louis
Times, though lengthy, will be found about
as Interesting as anything we could furnish
In its stead ibis morning: .
On the niglit or the 28th ot December
taet Dcanls Rush, a suction boss on one of
tlio fllmnix rnflnuiilu liitn.. Km,
........... BM, ,a, u.uig auuut tour
miles this side of Belleville, was aroused
by a rapping on his door. When ho da-'
manded the name of the rapper the door
was kicked in for un answer, and beforu
Rush could realize it a pistol was poked
under his nose and ho was at the mercy of
his visitors. These were four in number,
and they informed him that they were the
James brothers, adding, as a sort of assur
unce that Rush was not in any immediate
danger; that tho James boys didn't kill
they simply robbed. The gang went
through Rush's quarters and were rewarded
by finding something like f!)0.
They had expected to make a haul of
f 1,100 (so one of them told an officer after
he wii3 arrested), but it wasn't in the house.
After the robbery the men left the house,
and, as was subsequently ascertained, walk
ed aliouta quarter of a mile, got into a light
spring wagon and drove away. News of
the robbery was flashed over the wires the
next morning, aud among the readers of the
papers Porter Leonard was struck with the
description given of the wagon aud horses
iu use by the thieves. This description an
swered for a team which he had hired to a
party tho day before, and he despatched a
messenger on an investigating tour. The
messenger overhauled the rig in a ditch
near Belleville, where it had been abandon
ed by its occupants, who had evidently
missed the rond and caused the wreck in
their haste to get out of the county.
The police went to work on the case and
they worked hard, but there was ouly a
slight clue to operate upon. A man named
Quinlnn- an utter stranger in that section
of country was arrested ut a brewery not
far from the Belleville city limits on suspi
cion. Quinlan hail called nt the brewery
at an unusually early hour in the morning
following the robbery, and was considerably
used up. lie drank beer until he wuh
stupid, aud was sent to town for being
drunk. While he was under lock and key
the authorities heard of the robbery and the
rinding of the wrecked wagon on the road
and they put this und that together and
made a rough guess that the prisoner be
longed to the gang who had visited Rush.
DRAWN AT A VENTURE.
It was simple guess work on their part,
but they builded wiser than they knew
they had one of the robbers in their hands.
While they were studying over the case a
telegram was received from the marshal of
Last St. Louis stating that he had received
a telegram trom Cairo asking if Mitch Ne
mo was wanted. Mitch Nemo was the last
mun in their minds, and nu answer was for
warded to East St. Louis to thnt effect.
The East St. Louis oflicial then used the.
wires to ask the Cairo authorities who
Nemo was and wh.st he had done. This,
in view of the fuct that a burglary had been
committed almost under the very nose of
the East St. Louis oflicial, and that
Nemo, an ex-convict, had just left
that section of the country, staggered the
Cairo authorities, and Nemo was about to
be released, when a telegram was received
from Chief McDonough requesting Nemo's
HOW NEMO WAS N A till ED.
And right here credit should be given to
a deserving officer. When the steamer
John A. Scudder touched the Cairo wharf
about the 5th of this month, John Sheehan,
a local detective of the town, saw Nemo on
the boat. Sheehan had heard of the Rush,
affair, und, knowing Nemo's record, con
cluded to take him in on general principles.
Detective Huthsing was sent down, and
yesterday returned with Nemo in custody.
In the meantime Quinlan, the Belleville
prisoner, talked some and gave the names
of the gang who did the Rush job. He
acknowledged he was one of the gang, said
that Mitch Nemo, Dan Flanagan and John
ny, alias Kit Carr, composed the balance of
the crowd. This information was sent to
this city and the detectives were ''put onto"
the case. They scoured the city but could
find no trace of their game.
Finally they learned that two women out
on Bernard street were the goddesses wor
shiped by Flanagan and Carr and they
shadowed those goddesses for four days
und nights. Their vigils were rewarded
they ascertained that the women were writ
ing to the men at Memphis, and thither
Detectivo Page and Sheriff Weber, of St.
Clair county, Illinois, went a few days
since. Flanagan will not be brought back
at present, however, for he is implicated in
the robbery of a jewelry store in Memphis,
and the authorities of that city think they
have the "deadwood" on him for a term in
the Tennessee penitentiary. Carr will bo
here to-morrow or the day after.
