of his mettle in the shape of a punch that

Cis ci .v.nat 1, July li Governor Lowry,
while keeping one eye on the Sullivan com
bination down about Nashville, kept the
other ey bearing on tbe trail of Ktlrain and
Mitchell, and as their route lay through this
city, early yesterday Governor Foraker re
ceived a telegram at Columbus from Jack
son, Miss., signed by Robert Lonrv. cov
entor of Mimausippi, to tbe following effect:
"Please direct the chief of police at Cincin
nati to arrest Jake Kilrain, Charlie Mitchell,

immediately teh-craphed to Kilrain. who
was on Ohio and Mississippi train No. 2. Tbe

tective boarded the train at the state line,
but Kilrain bad Bed. Tbe crowd on the

he retired badly disappointed. Kilrain was
in good spirit on the train.

Tbey drove to a hotel ami ordered supper.
Before tbe meal was concluded Murphy
went out and secured a carriage, and re
turned to the hotel, when tba party left 1
cretly and drove northward, presumably to

Chicago, July 12. The petition of Her
bert C Aver, the divorced husband of Har
riet Hubbard Ayer, tne proprietress of face
lotions, to have his wife removed as guardian
of their youngest child, Margaret, was made
public iu tbe superior court re&terday. The
petition of Mr. Ayer is very sensational, and
is suppiementea by some very spicy corre
spondence from bis daughter Margaret, and
from tbe novelist, sUiss Howard, in whose
charge Margaret now is at Stuttgart Ger
many. The petition say Mrs. Ayer con torn
plates removing Margaret from Miss How
ard s csre, and charges Mrs. Ayer with
drunkenness and other vices, and declares
that she is not a fit person to look after the
welfare of her daughter. Tbe petition asks
that Mrs. H.rrriet Seymour Margaret' (sister
of Orange, X. J., be appointed her guar
Mcf Opinion of Her Mother.
In will be remembered that a month or so
aro Mrs. Ayer won a suit against ber son-in
law, Allen Lewis Seymour, who married ber
eMest daughter, Harriet, over the stock of
the face lotion companv. It seems that ber
divorced husband' suit is connected sliirhtlv
with the suit against Seymour, as letters
"ere puMwhed at that time which are used
in this latter suit The girl Margaret is 13
years old and in a letter dated June 4, ad
tlresse.1 to her sister Harriet, she savs:

Another letter is frun Miss Howard and
refers at the start to Mrs. Ayer as "the arch
h-!iid, saving: "I am sure you will all agree
mat in a l.iui.m to tbe public affront to my
fair nme, 1 should hardly be called upon to
y the arch fiend's private bills." As to
Margaret she rites: "The question now is
11 1 can legally keep her, provided Mrs. Ayer
sends f.v her. Has your papa the (lightest
hVai right to tbe child' It would break my
heart to give the child up No one in tbe
world understand ber as I da No one who
