patch from Altooi a, Pa., noting the ar
rest there of one Frank Callei alias Tat
McDermott, a railioad bmkeman residing
in thai city, on the charge of the murdtr
o.' Daniel Doughtity.of EJing'on. Ever
since the commission of the crime and
the chafe of Shei II Reticker after the
fugatiyc, the shulE's fflje has been in
utmost daily comn unication wi:h author -iiies
in various varts of the country,
where it was thought McDermott had
been disco vi red and which had been
reached by the dt scriptive notices scat
tered broadcast throughout the land. All
turmiph Sheriff Rt ticker's ttrm he was re
sponding to, and ruuDicK down clues of
this eon, first one from the far west.then
one in Kansas or Nebraska and some
times one from tLe east. When Sheriff
Silvis entered upon tde duties cf the of
fice, he, too, devoted himself induetrious
ly to pursuing evjry possible clue that
might lead to the apprehension and re
turn cf the culpiil. Mr. Silvis made
maiiy trips to tbe west and sometimes
besides sending dispatches to identify
prisoners supposed to be McDermott. A'-
! though all these investigations were at-
j tended by discouraging results, Mr. Sil
vis did not giye up hope, and since Mr.
Gordon became sjeriff both he and Mr.
Siivis haye had more or less correspond
ence on the subject.
THINK THEY HAVK THE MAX .
On Feb. 13 came a letter from Ge.rge
j Collier, detective of the Pennsylvania
I railroad at Alioona, Fa , in which be
! asked fi r infoima.ion as to Patrick Mc
Dermott and bis crime, aid stating that
he believed he could put.his ham's on
him. The tone of the letter was such
that Deputy Silvis at once opened a c r
respond ence with Detective Coll er, and
advised him to secure a photograph of
the suspected mat. for identification. A
number of teiecrams passed between
Messrs. Si! vis and Collier, ihe dispatches
from Altoona teil.ng of the arrest cf the
suspect, cd at last ore Satuid-.y to'd
that he had j iacticaily confessed the
murdtr. In one of his telegrams Detec
tive Collitr stated that be was to positive
that he hud Mcl ermott that he would
pay all the txpei ses of a man to g to
Altoona to identify him. Yesterday a
number of disp itches passid between
State's Attorney Sturgeon and tbe de
tcctive on the advice of the sheriff, and
yesterday Deputy Silvia drove out to
Edgington and biought in Bail.ff Foun
tain, who knew McDermott during his
residence in this county, and who has
made other trips for the purpose of iden
tifying men supposed to be him, and
last night Mr. Fojntain started for Al

went to Springfield to secure the neces

THE MAS AT AI.TOOKA
has been working as a yard br&keman for
the I'ennsylvan a Railroad company
under the name of Frank Callen, who
with is wife and a child a week old, had
been livingal 819 Fourth avenue, that city,
and who on the morringot tbe 19. h was
anesltd bj Detetlive Collier. A copy of
an Al'ojna paper says tbat at the time
of McDermott's arrest be was very much
uuuerved, but entirely docile until he
was taken to a photograph gallery to
have his picture taken. When he realized
what was to be done he became greatly
enraged tnd fought like a demon,
threatening tobreinCullitr with bis hand
cuffs and calling him ail sor'a of vile
names. Tbe sen e paper also states that
since h's arrest Callen has admitted that
he ctme frini this section; that he had
quarreled with D ugberty, the murdered
mm, and that af'.er his death he bad in
herited the property of Dougherty
through hia wife whose maiden name was
Dougherty. When asked to account for
his whereabouts t.t variouB time before
and tf .er Doughtrtj's death be readily
consented, giving bis location during all
periods except lor the month during
which the murder was committed.
It tbe man Is McDermott and the
worn in he haa been living with is his
wife, he has committed another crime by
unlawful marriage, as the wife be left
here has never bten divorced and lived in
Rock Island until a year ago, since which
she has been in Davenport working out
as a domestic.
for which McDermott is wanted was one
of the most delilwrate and cold blooded
murders in thelistoryof the state. It
was committed at McDermott's own
home in Edgington township on the
night of Feb. 20. 1885, and a singular co
incidence is that he was arrested on Feb.

ter tbe c mmission of be rr'te. His
victim was bis own brother-iD law, Dan
iel Dougheny, and McDermott while
under the ii fl iencs of I quor to some ex
tern, is Slid to have been la full posses
sion of his senses, wnicb is demonstrated
by the fact that as soon as be realized the
extent of his crime he made good his es
cape. Daniel Dougherty, the murdered
maa, was 20 years f ge, unmarried, and
resided witu his parents a short distance
from the McDe. molt hous. O.t the
night of the murder Patrick McDermott,
Daniel D mgherty aid onu Thomas Cook
had been to Reynolds where they drank,
and according to evidence at the coron
er's inqiest, were all under tbe ir fl.ience
of liquor to some extent. They retuined
home about 12 o'clock that night and
went into the kitchen f McDermott's
home where they ate supper. During
the course of the meal thtrj wa9 mi re or
less wrangling between the brothera-in-law,
and af'er finishing tbeirsuppir they
sat down by the stove where they toid
stories for awhile, tut later the conversa
tion drifted urourdto the oid quarrel,
which was renewed McIVrmott fioally
got up and wa'ked in;o the pantry off
tbe kitchen, and wb'lu in there kept up
the conversation wiih Doug
herty. While in the pantry
it is supposed he pot tbe revolver wiih
which he afterward commuted the mur
der, lie then came out again and stood
by the stove, and it was at this time that
the quarrel got the hottest. The lie was
rassed back and forth and thrtats of
wbippirg one an ther were made.
Dougherty tot up from his chair and told
McDermott he would smasu him atd in
an instant the latter whipped out bis re
volver and fl jurihhed it about. Dougherty
was apparently very cool and told Mc
Dermott that -he could not Muff anyone
with that thing and that be bad better put
it up, scd tben added that if he didn't he
wouia Knock McDermott down with a
chair. McDermott th n ordiredD.:ugcerty
from the house and the latter retorted by
applying an opprobrious epithet, wben
McDermott sujiny as he uid so, "Now,
take tbat," took aim and fired. The ball
entered Dout-herlj's right breast and
lodged somewhere near tbe spine. The
woundt d man ran out of the house fol
lowed by bis sister, McDcrmoti'a wife,
who assisted him to their father's home
nearby where he died in a few hours.
McDermott mourned a horse and after
bidding his wife good bye and expre.-sing
bis scrrow for his crime rode away.
Sheriff Ueticker w is on the ground early
next morning and followed McDermitl
to Alt do, fr in which pltce he traced
him to Butlingon and found a saloon
where the murderer had s'opped, and
four.d that he had left there for CreHon,
Iowa. Eere the sheriff dropped the clue
and came home, aud the mil diy se
cured a Pinkerton man fr.m Chicago.acd
again took up the c'ue which tbey fol
lowed to St. Paul.and fro a there up into
Muntana where tbe trail ws lost, and
they returned without their man. A re
ward of f-ktO was tben offered for McDer

county and 200 by tbe state, and phc
