Washington, Muy Hi. The extensiou of
ten days, granted by Judge Wylio in ti e
Star route cases, to enable the government
ollicers to secure the urrcst ot John W.
Dorsey, expired to-day. When the court
opened u deputy marshal made return to
ttic warrants that he had been unable to
li'id Dorsey. Mr. Merrick, of counsel for
tho governiiicnt, said that, warrants Ihr
Dorsey had been sent to New York, Ver

He added that it had been Dorsey's inten
tion ii'om the hrst to attend when wanted
and alter tiling motions in his case similar
to those tiled in others, Dorsey was ar
raigned, anil, waiving tlie reading ol tlie in
dictment, pleaded not guilty. Merrick said
the government wus ready to proceed, but
stated to the court Unit the grand jury was
no,v considering the Keidell case. He said
that if Keidell was not tried with the other
defendants it would necessitate another
trial in his case. This was to be avoided,
he thought, und ho submitted the mat
ter to the judgment of the court,
adding that ten days would
probubly give time for the grand
jury to indict Keidell. Judge Wylie
thought the position taken by tlie govern
ment was a proper one, and he would
therefore adjourn a hearing until Thursday
next, May ai As counsel were leaving the
court-room, Judge Wylio remarked to the
marshal that he was responsible for the
person of John W. Dorsey, who bad not yet
filled his bond. Bail in'bis case had been
