heads of the detective force now en
gaged in hunting for the two remain?
ing members of the Allen gang, who
were participant? in the murder of
three court officials at Ilillsville. Car?
roll county. March 13th last.
When tUe (?overnor was asked if
there was anything In connection
with the hunt for the desperadoes
which he cared to give to the press,
he replied in the negative.
Governor Mann said: "I shall
prepare a statement for the press in
the form of a proclamation, in which
I shall call attention to the crime,
and shall warn and caution all per?
sons in the State to refrain from giv?
ing the two men food, clothing, shel?
ter, aid or comfort of any sort, and
?I.? hiring that so to do will make
them accessories after the fact, mak?
ing them liable to prosecution for
the murders of the men in the court?
house. I want to consult the statutes
and be absolutely accurate in every
step I shall take, and it may be late
this afternoon before the proclama?
tion is ready."
When Detective Baldwin was seen
after the conference, he refused to
give any information whatever to the
members of the press, saying that
what there was to he given out would
be furnished by the Governor. He
declared that there were no secrets
in connection with the hunt at this
time, but refused to make the least
reference to his plans or to Indicate
what is being done or planned for
the capture of the men.
His manner was such, however, as
to indicate that the result of the con?
ference had been satisfactory, and
that he is becoming more and more
convinced that the capture of the out?
laws is a question of a few days. He
would not come anywhere near dis?
