Chicago, May 29 Capt. Thomas Porter
returned from Duquoin yesterday, where,
at a lonely farmhouse at , midnight of
Tuesday, he aud United States Marshal
Ed Bacon captured the second preacher
counterfeiter that ha. beea arrested with
in a week. The case is unentitled in the
history of tbe United States secret service.
The second capture is Kev. George Vancil,
pastor of the Mi-MMon Baptist church, of a
circuit about Duqnoin. Vancil has been a
preacher of the ord for eight or ten
years, and tbe Mc-tlnxlist denomination
churned him when he first went into the
pulpit. For seven years he was a licensed
preacher of the Methodist persuaiion, but
he left tin1 church in lssa because of
charge of 1 il.-n'hood preferred agaiust

was poured into Kev. Vancir's ears, and
Vancil hid a sack of the money for Holmes.

They had little opportunity to pjvss the
coin in the county in which they lived,
but little coin circulating among the farm
ers, but one day last month the opportu
nity came. A circus came to Duquoin. and
Holmes and Vancil had a little confab to
gether, the result of which was that Van
cil took nine of the Kid dollars and went
to the ungodly circus. By his own confes
sion he got rid of &i worth.and he even con
fessed how he swindled the people who
took it. He passed fl on the sideshow man,
receiving 9o cents in change, another dol
lar was disposed of for a bag of peanuts,
and tbe lightning photograph man had
the third dollar worked off on him.
A Had Case of Confusion.
Vancil's nrrest was brought about by his
own weakneis. He went to town several
days ago after hard work on a sermon he
was preparing, and went to Express Agent
R. A. Wheat ley, who chanced to be read
ing the account in Chicago a paper of the
arrest of Brother Holmes. This was the
first news Vancil had heard of the arrest,
and he lecame so confused that he passed
one of the bad dollars on Agent Wheatley
