During the evening ibe juniors took their instruments aud jKtrlormed several airs in a manner that proved them worthy to be successors to the famous Sodality silver baud. Speeches on the Occasion Committees on FrlTstf Subscriptions for Mem phis, Holly Springs and the Country. I wanted. Kaiiroads were operated for I the lieneflt of their stockholders, aud j would be run In the interest of tue city giving uiem tue most work. There was no use talking about the rail roads that were discriminating against Memphis. We should raise tbe money ana mnia tue road we needed. He 1h?- lieved the right course to pursue was to commence building the track right here: get an engine ou the road; let tbe people hear tbe engine whistle and see it go out every day. This would look so like busincsts that the money would be easily raised to build the road to Holly Springs. The merchants were willing to do what they could to build the road. One reason that they did not nave money was tnat tfiey were contin ually advancing it to the citizens of Colo- W alter's section. A special meeting of the chamber of commerce was held Tuesday evening. April loth, to hear the report of the committee appointed to confer with (he committee from Holly Springs, relative to me rseima, Marion and Memphis railroad. The committee on behalf of Holly Springs consisted of the following named gentlemen: A. M.Clayton, I. C. Levy, A. B. Upshaw, G. M. Buchan an, H. W. Walter, B. A. Crump, T. A. Bottom, Wllsou Durham, A. H. Alley, A. Arnold, and J. W. C. Watson. A large number of our most liberal and energetic business men were in attend ance, fully impressed with the impor tance of the work to be accomplished. Mr. Pettigrew, of the chamber of commerce, called the meeting to order, and stated its object. Judge Clapp, on behalf of the com mittee of the chamber of commerce. stated that tbe delegation of citizens of Marshall county were present, and hui? gested that Colonel H. W.

Twenty individuals were before the recorder yetterday charged with druuk enness, fighting, and other minor of fenses. Tbe majority were lucky in getting off scot free. About twenty-five dollars were assessed in fines, and fifteen collected. The neirro named Geonre Wilson, who was arrested on Monday, while in j possession of several new castings offer- i ing them for sale at a junk-shop in North j Memphis, was before the recorder yes-! terdaS morning. Owing to the absence f the owner of the stolen proerty the case was continued till to-day. The testimony in the McLean case closed yesterday morning iu the crim inal court, and the argument was opened on tbe part of the State by Mr. Wil liams m a well-arranged and neatly prepared argument. Colonel George (autt followed in an e.quent address to the jury. Colonel Gorge It. Phelan, on bebaif of the State; Mr. H. 8. Lee, for defense; General L. B. Horrigan. for the defence, and Attorney General Wright will close tha argument to-day, when I he case will be given to tbe jury. Talking aliout woman's rights, here are some sensible remarks from tbe llap titt Union. "Tbe poorest girls in tbe world are those who have never been brought up to work. There are thousands of them. Rich parents have netted them, they have been taught to despise labor, and depend upon others for a liv ing, and are perfectly helpless. If mis fortune come upon their friends, aa it often does, their case is hopeless. The most forlorn and miserable woman on earth belongs to this class. It lieluno-s to parents to protect their daughters from the deplorable condition. They do tbem a great wrong if they neglect it. Every daughter should be taught to earn her own living. Tbe rich as well as the poor require this training. The wheel of fortune rolls swiftly round the rich For the convenience of our customers we will send our south wagon to the State female College and immediate vicinity, Tuesdays and Fridays. Friends wauling goods sent out will give their orders on the day before. DELIVER. FINN IE & CO. The Rev. 8. A.

Ihe completion of the Selma. Marion ana Mempnis railroad wouid bring ncouL-uo iuuusuiiu oaies or cotton per annum. The people along tbe route wain, not money, nut tde loan of credit to the amount of two hundred thousand dollars, for which they were willing to give double that amount of the best security. The speaker referred to the other cities that bad compelled to build roads In order to bring back trade that had been taken from tbem by comnetinir cities. Citizens of Memphis were con tinually talking about the Southern Pa. ciflc railroad. He did not believ that road would ever be built through this city. Too mnch northwestern icaoi- tal was directed to the com pletion of a line in connection with tbe Cairo and Fulton, and other roads controlled by northern capi tal on the other side of the river. Tom Scott, it was alleged, had put five hun dred miles of the Southern Pacific under contract; but tbis was through one of me i iciiem sections in me world, which would support a local road of that length. A route from Memphis to the Atlantic, in which the Selma. Marion and Memphis road would be a link, should be built by our peo ple, and would be of incalculable benefit to all concerned. The portion of this road from this city to Hollv Springs was the immediate object to be attained, and he hoped the meet ing, in carrying out the resolu tions, would appoint committees who would impress on our people tbe Importance of taking the first mortgage bondsof tbe company, and thus enable them to push the work to an early com pletion, ine country tnrough whieh tbe road was to pass was one of the best in the world. Its products passing over I the road would enable it to pay these ! mortgage bonds at maturity, and keep the road well equipped. The company 1 wanted assistance at once, in order that I cars could be put upn part of the line I at an early day. After making a very iuterestine and nractical speech. Colonel I Walter took his seat, in order that other gentlemen might speak on the subject. Judge Clapp tnougnt the meeting would be glad to hear from Judge Wat son or Judge Clayton. Colonel Walter said some citizen of Memphis ought to say what Memphis was willing to do. He wanted an answer to his propositions, and called on Judge uel an jiosBible aid in required. Judge Clayton inquired whether the estimate was based on a narrow or a broad-gauge road. One-third the amount required for a broad-gauge, he thought, would build the narrow-gauge. Kecent experience with the latter class of road had convinced him of Its utility. II, however, the money could be raised, he thought they might carry out the original design. He said if the mer chants of Memphis had advanced money to the people of Northen Mississippi, and it had not been paid.it was because thpv did not have direct communication with this place. When this road was com pleted they would have a nearer and a better market for products. and would 1... of (Benefit to our commercial munity. Northern Mississippi, been said, once took Memphis off tbe pauper list, and ne wanted her busi uess men to always keep her off that list. He wanted some kind of road built immediately. Colonel Ham. Tate was called for. and said it was a very plain, matter-of-fact business. Means were wanted to work witn, and unless the means were forth coming, work on the road would stoi it a trunk-line were wanted, he thought it should be a liroad-srauire one if only a road to Holly Kprings, then a narrow-gauge was sufficient. If the oroad-gauge could not be bad, build tbe narrow-gauge. He referred to the standing or tne Memphis and Charles ton. Tbe policy he pursued made that roau a success; tne citizens showed i confidence in the enterprise, took stock and the first-mortgage bonds were is sued, and carried the road through. Tiih was the way Memphians could build cue roaa io Molly pnngs. General Wallace called on Colonel Donovan to tell something in regard to me com oi narrow-gauge railroads. Judge Llapp, in response to General Wallace, said the meeting was tor the purpose of devising means to build tbe road, not to determine its gauge. The directors were the persons to settle that ituesiion. , .. 1 T - v-oiuuei twuovan, wnose experience iu uairuw-gtiuge Dunning was asked for, proceeded to tell what he kuew about it. He referred to last Sunday's Ap peal, to show that narrow-gauge roads were being built iu all sections of tbe country; and claimed that one of those utile roads could do the work of this route. He said tbu appropriation made cry oueioy county was sufficient to build it. Two hundred thousand dollars in bonds had already been issued, and thre nuoarea thousand more were to ho i ueu oy tne countv. A narrnw-i'sno-e road could be equipped for seven Mum. sand dollars per mi;e, and be built im mediately, the broad-gauge, he thought, was too big a job to undertake Colonel Walter said those hoinU uoi ne issued, except in one and two jears. i-very arrangement had been made for a broad-gauge, and he thought the loan of their credit bv our citizens wouiu mane it a success. Colonel Tate, referring to the Mholhv county bonds, said they had been issued lor building a "first-class'' n.ajl whieh ncant a broad-gauge. The contract ould not well be changed. All arraiuew menis nad been made for that kind .,t roau, and what was wanted now was the means to get it in running order for a short distance, and then it would build uaau. Colonel Donovan said the couuty ourt might change tbe contract aud ssiie the bonds immediately, if tlmv would be sufiieient to build tbe narrow- auge. Judge Clapp wanted to know what good was to be done by discussing the gauge question, when there was not nough money iu hand to build anv road at all. I udge T. W. Brown moved tbe adop tion of the committee's report, and the apiKtiutment of a committee to solicit ubscnptious of stock, aud a committee it memorialize the countv court. Hon. Jacob Thompson suggested the tmemimem oi the motion so as to nro- : I .- .. . 1 , . . iue ior tue appointment oi two com mittees, one for North and one for -outh Memphis, with a recommenda tion that a committee be arioointpd for rioiiy .springs, and one to solicit sub captions along the route Judge Urown accepted tbe amend ment, and in advocating bis measure aid he had opposed the voting of money oy ine couuty to build railroads on tbe east side of tbe river, believing tnat it couiu oe more prontabiy em ployed on the west side. As this road had been graded, and a large amount of money paid on it, be was in favor of im mediate and vigorous prosecution of the worn. Mr. W. K. Moore desired another reading of the resolutions, iu order that tney might be thoroughly understood The secretary, Colonel Trousdale. read the resolutions after which, Mr. Moore asKeci as to tne legal value of the fir: mortgage bonds. Hon. Jacob Thompson explained the point uy stating mat the Holders of these oondi had precedence among the cred itors of tbe road, and that the State of Alabama had nothing to do with tbem ine report of the committee, with Judge urowu's motion, was then uuun imously adopted.

The facts developed at tue lime were that w hen General Thott. C. Hindman was sitting quietly smok ing ins pipe in the tront room of nis res idence, he was brutally assassinated. A miscreant in human form coolly amide liberately shot the callaut neueral while ne was sitting in toe midst of bis family with a musket loaded with buck-shot and bail eartridire. Two of the bullets entered his neck and his left hand wa-i shattered into fragments. He fell back in nis cuair wnereiu ne nad been so quietly enjoyinc himself, not thinkini? he had an enemy in the world, and in the short space of eight hours his noble spirit took its flight to the God who gave it. During the war General Hiu.l man greatly distinguished himself, aud bis assassination caused a thrill of hor ror to throb through every southern breast. A gallant soldier, a loving and devoted husband and a kind aud gener ous father, be went to his grave lament ed by thousands, all of whom regretted his terrible taking oft. Every eflbrt was made to ferret out the perpetrator or his associates in the diabolical assassina tion, but without the slightest avail. Four long years passed away, and uoth- ng was heard about the tragedy until itiout three weeks ago, when Mrs. Hindman received a letter, of which the following is a copy : Domikioxs of Satan, March 17, lWli. Mrs. General iliiidnian, Helena: Dear Ladt I have beeu upon the point of uldressl ng you uixun subject whichl knowls very painful to you, but have neglected until to-day. hut to the point : First -l)o yon wish to know who assiisniuated your husband ?

Tbe lady, in response, came to Mem phis, and took up her resi dence at the Peabody hotel on Saturday last. In the evening the man of many aliases called on her and told her that he wished to inform her all about tbe murder of her husband. He. at the same time said that she might call in any friends she pleased to hear his statement, and Judge Mamrum. of Helena, was called in, and Vaughn made a private confession to Mrs. Hindman and Judge Mangura, which cannot at present be made public, but which, when published, will show who were tbe real actors in this bloodv trasredv. Thief Athy and Detective Cranmer. who had oeeu mane aware ot what was going on. were on the alert and reach- to arrest him ou tbe shortest possible notice, but were lmormeu ny judge Mamnim that everything was satisfactory, and he was allowed to leave the Peabody hotel un molested. He at once proceeded to the Appeal office, having been informed that there was a letter in this office ad dressed to him as "Frank Burdett." When be asked for the letter, word was sent up the speaking-trumpet to a po liceman who was on the watch up stairs for him, to come down. The 'gentleman in blue" immediately went down, and was told that Burdett had just left tbe office. The officer at a chase up Union street, but Burdett, see ing ne was pursued, ran up stairs over r.sies, rizer & nnson's wholesale gro eery-store, on Front street, and rushed along tbe passage aud down the tiack stairs to the alley, and succeeded in making his escape. On Sundav. Chief Athy was determined to effect the capture of Burdett, and called to his assistance his faithful henchman, Harry Cranmer, and together they went in the directiou of the Memphis and Ohio depot, and succeeded in arresting Burdett near his own house, corner of Concord and Second streets. He was taken to the Adams street statlonhouse, where he was lacked up and kept se curely till yesterday afternoon, when Mr. John D. Adams, attorney, sued out a writ of Itabeas torpu before Judge Halsey in the second circnit court. THE WBIT. At four o'clock in the afternoon, Vaughu was brought into court by (bief Athy and Officer Hope, before J udge Halsey. General G. W. Adams and Colonel H. C. Young apjieared ou behalf of the prosecution, and Mr. John D. Adams for the defense. Mr. J. D. Adams rose and said that the prisoner, Vaughan, was illegally re strained of his liberty, and, therefore, he wished him released from custody, as he did not, in his opinion, believe there was any testimony to hold him. Colonel Young read the warrant on which Vaughan Burdett had been ar rested, as follows : State of Tennessee, County of Shelby. Before me, John Spellman, an acting justice of the peace in and for ths coun ty, appeared ll H. Maugum, a resident of the city of Helena, aud State of Ar kansas, who made oath that he has cause to believe, and verily does believe, that one L. Vaughn, alias L. L. Vaughn, alias Frank Burdett, did, on me iwe-niy-nrtn day oinentemoer, IMS abet and assist in the murder ot Thomas C. Hindman, which murder was com milted in the city and State aforesaid. Affiant therefore asks that a warrant be issued for tbe arrest of the said aughn, altiu Burdett, and that be be arrested and held in custody until a prop ir requisition can be procured from nis excellency tne governor or Arkan sas, l. H. :,: an i . i m. tsworn to and subscribed before this fourteenth day of April, 1873. JOHN SPKLMAN, J. p. He said that an application had been made to the governor of Arkansas, and he therefore asked a continuance, in order to allow time for tbe requisition for the prisoner's extradition to reach Memphis. Mr. Adams opposed the motiou for the continuance, and said the poiice had got hold of an innocent man. Colonel Young said that he had several witnesses to call, but some of them were not in attendance. He would, however, call Captain Philip K. Athy, chief of police, to the stand, to identify the cop ies of certain letters, of which the orig- iuni were iu tue possession or Mrs. Hindman. The letters in ques tion are given above.! He ex pected to prove by Chief Athy that he bad seen the copies made in bis own office, and he (Colonel Yovng) would also call tbe clerk who made tbe copies. TESTIMONY OF CHIEF ATHY. Chief P. K. Athy, on lieing sworn and examined by Colonel Young, testified as follows : I have seen the papers before that I now hold in my hand ; these pa pers were written in my office trom the originals which I saw: 1 recognize the hand writii;tr. Mr. Adams contended that such testi mony was not mpetnt, as the State was bound to produce the original let ters if they were in their possession. Witness resumed : I know the hand writing of the defendant; the original letters were iu his hand-writing; I re turned tbe originals to Mrs. Hmdmin aud Judge Maugum, who took them M aeiena. Colonel Youns We want time to nro- duce these original letters. Mr. Adams said he did not know the contents of the letters, and wished to see them before they were offered in court. Colonel Young said it was a full con essiou on the part of the defendant, of the crime for which he had been arrested and stood charged. Mr. Adams said that the (State was bound to produce tbe original letters, as copies could not be offered in court. Judge Halsey The originals are out of the reach of the court at present, and ne would postpone ttie investigation to allow the .State time to produce the iriginals. Ueueral Adams remarked that that was all that the counsel for the State wanted. Mr. J. D. Atlams said that the defense be intended to set up was that of an alibi, and be had no objection to a post ponement, as he could prove by a hun dred wituesses, if necessary, that his client was near Ciarksville, Tennessee, when Geueral Hiudmau was murdered. Judge Halsty wiilpostpone the inves tigatiou till Saturday, and will remand the prisoner to jail without bail until that time. Tbe prisoner, whose wire, mother and sister-in-law were in court, was then curned over to Deputy -sheriff Edmund son, who conveyed him to jail with the assistance ot Detective Cranmer. After tbe warrant bad been made out and Vaughn had been remanded to jail, a representative of the Appeal inter viewed him while he was in the charge of Deputy-Sheriff Edoiondson, and elicited from the prisoner the following statement: and she told me there was a letter at the Appeal office for Frank Burdett. ueu mug and Frank Burdett went into me billiard-room of the Peabody hotel, and I went to the Appeal office. They then came down to Union street, and then from the Appeal office, when I went into the office. I asked for the letter, and when I got it I saw a policeman down stairs. Denning and Burdett saw the policeman and took fright aud left in a hurry, and I went home. 1 ran off, aa I saw tbe policeman was after me, and I ran up Union street. I walked up and went up the steps of the Magnolia block, on Front street, and came down into the alley ou Union street, and then went to my house on tbe corner of Concord and Second streets. I was arrested on the following Sunday, the next day, between one and two o'clock iu the afternoon. I kuew on Saturday night that I was going to be arrested the next day, and told sev eral persons that I expected to be arrest ed. I had done nothing wrong when I saw the policeman in the AppEALoffice, and when he chased me up Union street I did not run. He was about half a block behind me. I thought I was about to be arrested. Chief Athy saw me as I came down stairs at the Peabody hotel, but he did not seek to arrest me. I told Mrs. HiDdman, at the Peabody, In her own room, that she could bring up anybody she wished to hear what I had to say to her. I met her in her room. Judge Manguui came up, and I said I had no objections to any one being present. I told her what Burdett told me to tell her; but I cannot tell you what I said without tne consent of my counsel. Sue proposed that if I was ar rested and would go down there to Hel ena, and testify that Dr. so and so, nam ing a well-known physician whose name I cannot give you, was the party wh did the shooting, I would get five thou sand dollars. I was to testify that it was a ''put up job" by the doctors in Helena, and she said if I would do so she would release me and give me the money, and protect Burdett. Denning and Burdett told me to speak in my letters about two physieiaus. I told her I could not tell her anything till I saw Clem Penning. I saw him afterward. Mrs. Hindman spoke to me about paying tbe five ttxjusand dollars after I was arrest ed. The reason that Denning and Bur dett came to me about this matter, was that they knew I was acouainted in Helena. I never bad seen tbem before in mv life, and I don't know what rea son they had to come to me, except that they knew I was well known iu Helena. I believe that at one time Clem Denning kept a furniture store in Helena. I do not know what Burdett did for a living. They came to Butte's sawmill to see me on Front street, above tbe jail. That is all I want to tell you, and I won't tell you any more. THE ITUSONEK FOB CiyciSKATI.

VAl'GHN'S ACCOUNT OF THE AFFAIR. My name is Lewis D. Vaughn. I was boru iu the township of Wheeling, Cook couuty, Illinois, a short distance from the city of Chicago. I was twenty-six years of age ou the sixth day of uie present monin. i nave been in tne south ever since I was a lioy, as I was brought to Nashville by my father when I was quite a child. I was edu cated in Nashville, and was at school when the war broke out. I entered the Confederate service, and was a private in the first Tennessee regi ment of infantry, generally known as tne "kock t.itv tiuards," of which George B. Mtiney was colonel. A part of the regiment was sent to Vir ginia, anil a portion remained in Ten- uessee. 1 was with the latter portion of the regiment, and was with it at the battle of Bhilob, and was wounded at that battle in the left arm, the bullet en tering my left hand aud running right up my left arm, completely disabling me so that I was unable to rejoin my reni- inent. I returned to Nashville while tbe war was going on, and commenced serv ing my time as a machinist in the ma chine shop of Alessrs. Romans & Co., touuuers and maenine makers. After ray time was out, I was employed as an engineer on the steamers City of Nashville, Piuk varble, bam Orr, aud other boat". The first time I ever was in Helena, Arkan sas, was in the month ot October, 18.0. think I went down there with some machinery for a planing-mill for Messrs. A. J. White & Co., of this city. 1 started to go to Young's Point, Arkan sas, to put up tne machinery at that place for a Mr. Compton. Thefirst time I ever heard of the murder of General Hindman, at Helena, Arkansas, was while I was living at the Bailor's Rest station, about seventeen miles this side f Llarfcsviiie, Tennessee. 1 think I heard it two or three nights after it occurred; just so long as to allow it to get into tbe news papers. I heard Mr. Jesse West read ing the account of the murder, I think, from a Louisville paper at Sailors Rest station. I did not go to Helena for two years after, and I did not see General Hindman in my life mat 1 know of, aud can tell you that I know nothiusr about the murder of General Hindman except what has been told me. About nve weeas ago two meu came to me where I was running a aw-mill, at Messrs. Butts & Co.'s lumber-yard, on Front street, near the jail. One of them I knew by reputation. His name was Ulem JJenning, who was at one time a furniture dealer In Vicksburg. The other man was a man who called himself Frank Bur dett. After speaking to me a short inev re .tiesieu me io write io iirs. Hindman at Helena. I bad never seen her in my life. They asked me to invite her, that if she would protect Bunlitt he would tell Her all alxiut the shooting oi her husband. He said he saw tbe shoot- ng done, and that he was one of three parties who did it. I wrote the letter which will be found above as he di rected me, and said that she was to keep my letter a secret and to answer it through the Appeal for a week. That was all I told her in the letter. She answered the letter in the Appeal as I had asked her, and then she came up to the city, but Clem Denning and Frank Burdett were out of town. I did not go to see her because they were not home. When she came back here they were both in town. I did not see her hp first Hum she was here in Meninhig, and Denning and Burdett requested me to write again to Mrs. Hindman, and I did so. The letter will be found in an other place. I wrote to her according to their instructions, and told her they . . . , r were going to leave niempnis about the fifteenth of April, and that she would do well to be here before that time. Last Satur day they came to me and told me to go up to the Peabody hotel and see if Mrs. Hindman had come to the city. I went up to the Peabody and saw her. I told her what Burdett told me to tell her, but I cannot tell what I really did say to her, unless my counsel, Mr. Adams, was here; I don't want to tell it about without consulting with Mr. Adams, my lawyer. She promised me, In answer to my letters, to giye protec tion to Burdett. On Saturday night I wen1 to the Peabody hotel to see her, was then taken off to jail in charge f a deputy sheriff, aud was safely locked up to await examination on Saturday. Vaughu Burdett Flowers is a rudcly complexioned man, apparently about thiity years of age. and i. about five feet six inches iu bhjht. He lias a cold-looking gray eye aud a sprouting moustache, which he is continually plucking with bis hands, and keeps up a constant spit ting, which is one of the peculiarities of his character. He is very restless in his movements, and at all times seems ill at ease. CIIfEF ATHY INTERVIEW' ED. The representative of the Appeal then proceeded to the police head quarters for the purpose of "interview ing" Chief Athy on the very interesting tdroumstanee. The polite chief, as usual, received the Appeal commissioner with genial courtesy, and on being informed of the nature of tbe business be bad ,-ome upon, invited bim to a seat, and told him he would inform him all about the mysterious affair, which he did in the following terms: About two weeks ago Colonel Galla way and Judge Underwood, of Helena. came to my office and stated to me cer tain facts which had come to their knowledge regarding the murder of Geueral Hindman at Helena about four years ago. They asked me to come to the Peabodg hotel and meet them there. I agreed to do so, aud weut to the hotel where I met Mrs. Hindman, Judge Un derwood and t'ai.tain Hriacne, Mk. Hindman's brother. Mrs. Hindman showed me some letters given above, and iu one of them I read: "Take nobody into your confidence but Judge Uuderwood.'' I was told that there were two letters for this man who calls himself Burdett, Vaughn and Flowers, at tbe Appeal office. I de tailed a policeman to watch that office and arrest anybody who came for them. Mrs. Hiniman and tbe gentlemen left for Helena, caking the original letters received from Burdett, after I had taken copies of them. In a few days after I received a telegraph dispatch from Mrs. Marv Hindman, to the effect that she had made an appointment to meet Burdett in Memphis on Saturday. She came up here according to promise, and I posted officers at the poetoffice.the telegraph-office and the Appeal office, to keep a sharp lookout for Burdett, of whom I had received a description. On Saturday night.about eighto'clock, Bur dett made his appearance at the Peabody hotel, where he introduced himself as Frank Burdett to Mrs. Hindman, stat that he was a son of Mr. A. P. Birdett, who was formerly one of the jMilice commissioners of the city, aud also stating that he had iieen connected with tbe detective ser vice. Mrs. Hindman asked if be would have any objections if Judge Mangum was present at the interview, and he said, "No, he had no objections." I don't know, really, what took place at that interview. Detective Cranmer and I were at the hotel at the time, and I sent my card up to Mrs. Hiudman's room, and Burdett says he discovered my name on the card. Shortly afterward I saw Judge Mang OmJ who told me that every thing was satisfactory, and he did not want Burdett arretted. He said Burdett bad agreed to come back at nine 'clock to give further explana tions, but iu tbe meantime be bad gone to tbe Appeal office to get a letter that was there for him. Burdett went to iret the letter, but on seeing a policeman he ran up to Front street, mounted the stairway over Estes, Fuer & Pinson's store, and escaped by the alley in the rear. He never went back to the hotel that night, and next morning when I saw Mrs. Hindman and Judge Mangun ex pressed sorrow that Burdett bad not been arrested the previous night. They gave me a slight description of Bur dett's appearance, and said he bad been at Helena and pretended to be a detective at the time the express office was robbed, about three years ago. They said he went by the name of Frank Burdett, and on consultation with Detective Cran mer, and the examination of a letter which we had re ceived from Vaughn relative to the safe-robbery in my office by the An gelo Marre gang, we at once came to the conclusion that Burdett and Vaughn were one and the same person, and so we went and, after a little strat egy, arrested him near the Ohio depot, took him to the Peabody, and then to the stationbouse and locked bim up. DETECTIVE c KANMER'S STATEMENT. Detective Cranmer says that when Mrs. -lindmau saw him under arrest at the Peobudy, she exclaimed. "Mr. Bur dett, why did you not come back last night as you promised? " To which he replied: "Because I did not think you were playing fair with me, and had sent the police after me." Chief Athy remarked that Mrs. Hindman had acted fair with him and did not want him arrested, and here tne interview closed, and Vaughn- ouruect was cousigued to durance vile. Chief Athy and Detective Cranmer deserve very gTeat credit for the ad mirable manner in which they have worked up the case throughout. " REGI LAB WHITE RIVER PKT.
