An unknown man arrested in Everett
Saturday is believed to -be the burglar

give his name, was arrested by 1 Everett
officers after he had robbed several homes
in that town and had in one instance hold
up a hired girl at the point of a revolver.
Ilia manner of working in Everett was
similar to that employed, in this city. He
admitted several of the burglaries, and
it is understood that he confessed'crimes
committed in this city.
The arrest will be persconally inves
tigated by Chief of Police Facklcr of Ta
coma, and if it is possible he may be
brought to Tacoma for, trial. However,
if good cases have been secured against
him in Everett he may be tried there.
From the burglaries' that have been com
mitted here the police have been able
to secure good descriptions of the prowler.
Chief Fackler could probably identify
him from them if the suspect is the
right man. '
