The following story of the arrest of
A. K. Lyford in Victoria, 15. C, is told
by the Times of that city last Thurs
"Met ween 4 and 3 o'clock yesterday
afternoon Detective Sergeant Palmer
ii nd Detective MacIJonald arrested
Alfred K. Lyford, alias II. (.'. .Miller,
formerly deputy treasurer of Wrick
Island county. 111., who ahsc. unlet!
with $12,000 of the county funds, lie
was missed Sept. . last year and in
dicted y the grand jury Sept. 20. the
county treasurer, P. F. Cox, being the
complainant. Every effort was made
to locate him, and the police thiough
oiit the United States were notiJed of
his disappearance, but his where
abouts remained a profound mystery.
"As a matter of fact he had come
to Victoria a month after leaving
Hock Island. His presence and per
sonality were as great a mystery here
as his whereabouts must have been to
the Hock Island authorities. His ap
pearance and manner attracted gen
eral attention, am? everybody who
took note i f him made inquiry as to
his identity. He is above the medium
height and of large frame. He has
I lack hair, is smooth tliuven aiyl has
a pair of keen, dark eyes, with which
he scrutinized everyone who passed.
He was always well dressed and
created the impression that his cir
cumstances wtre better than the av
erage. Taken for an ORIrvr.
"Some thought he was an officer of
some sort on a private mission, but
to those with whom he was acquaint
ed he said he was. a mining man. und
t hat his name was II. t. Miller. Never
theless the police considered that he
was worth keeping under, surveil-

lance, so the eyes of the detectives
were frequently upon him. Some time
ago Sergeant Palmer detailed -Detective
MacDonahl to make inquiries as
to the man's identity and learned that
he. was supposed to be a mining man.
A few days ago they received infor
mation which cartsed them to look
up n Miller- in a new light. nud which
resulted in his arrett yesterday after
noon. "They received a circular from Eoek
Island containing the picture and de
scription of a man wanted for ab
sconding. They were at once ytruek
wilh.tlie likeness between the pict
ure and Miller, and wired back to
Rock Island for further information.
This was received yesterday and it
was decided to take the suspect into
custody. About 4 o'clock Sergeant
Palmer and Detective MacDonald
walked up to the man as 1 was
standing in his usual place at 'Camp
bell &" Cullin's corner, and the former
said tohimi 'I would like to speak
to you a moment. The three moved
up Trounce avenue.' Miller between
the two, detectives, ami Sergeant Pal
mer inquired: 'hn't your name Ly
ford?' Shown Hli Own Plot ore.
" No, replied the other quickly,
gazing steadily hut closely at the offi
cers. my name is II. C. Miller.' The
sergeant then narrated the circum
stances of the absconding of Lyford
from Uock Island' anil charged him
with being the man wanted. The oth
er strenuously denied that this was
his name. 'Well, you had better come
with us to the police station.' replied
the1 sergeant, and the suspect was im
mediately taken into custody. He
went without trouble, but persisted
that his name was Miller and that he
was a mining man.
"In the detective's office the picture
on the circular wus shown him. 'That
certainly looks very much like me, he
remarked, 'but you've got the wrong
man. The man in the picture had a
heavy black mustache, while the pris
oner was smooth shaven, but there
was no doubt that they were the
same. He was further questioned by
the detectives, but could give no sat
isfactory account of his whereabouts.
He fore coming here he said he had
been in California, Kossland, Alaska
" 'Have you ever been to Hock Isl
and?' queried'. Detective MacDonald.
"'Oh, yes. I've been there. 1 know
the place.' replied the other with the
Admit Ilia Identity.
"Subsequently he was taken to the
chief's office. There he ran i gaunt
let of searching questions. They prov
ed too much for him; he was unable
to keep up his denial, and finally he
admitted that he was Lyford, and the
man that was wanted. His downfall
he attributed to speculation on the
stock exchange. He kept losing' and
losing until he found himself behind
with the county's funds, and then he
became a fugitive. His life since
then, he said, had been one continual
round of worry. He was in a con
stant state of apprehension, fearing
every" day that he would meet some
body who would recognize him. He
has a wife and four children in I'oek
Island, three daughters and a son.
, "The chief has had several conver
sations with Lyford, but the 'latter
was always reticent regarding his
past history. Sheriff Hcider, of lloek
Island, has wired Chief Langley to
hold the prisoner and employ a solici
tor, while he would obtain from
Washington a warrant for his arrest
and detention. A further telegram
stated that he was leaving for Vic
tora at once. In the meantime a war
rant to detain Lyford will be secured.
It is not likely" that the latter will
fight extradition, in fct it is under
stood! that he has expressed himself
willing to return without giving any
trouble. . .
Room la Searched.
"After his arrest the detectives
searched his room in a popular board
ing house where he has been staying
for some time, in the hope of finding
something which would more clearly
establish his identity. A number of
letters were found, but all were ad
dressed to II. C. Miller, and were
from companies of various descrip
tion in San Francisco and Boston.
Since his arrival here attention has
been attracted to him by the number
of times he has altered his facial ap
pearance. When he came he was
smooth shaven, but subsequently
grew a beard. Latterly .however, his
face was bare. When he lived in Kock
Island he wore a heavy mustache."

Appointment of Instructor fo
. Yer Made Other
Salaries of teachers in the first six
grades in the Koek Island public
schools were increased $3 per month
each by the board of education at its
monthly meeting held last evening.
For the current year it means an
addition to the school expenditures of
approximately f 1,700, but the board
feels the money will be well spent,
the action being taken only after it
was shown by investigation that oth
er cities of corresponding size were
paying better salaries than was Hock
Island. For a city boasting of one of
the best school systems in the west,
the board decided that the teachers
of Bock Island should have pay in
keeping with the services they are
rendering toward the. education of
the youth c.f the community. The re
port of the teachers' committee on
appointments for the year was adop
ted by the board. It is as follows,
