VICTORIA, B. C, March 22. The mys

atttl absolute disappearance of the three
outbound travelers, Oleon. Clayson, and
'KtHfe. who were missed from the Yukon
watrway in November lHst appears to be

what the just-arrived Amur left Skagway,
otffietjrs were saW to be on the eve of coni
)&QtJta a chain of evidence 9 flic i cut .to
ItMa& the prisoner, O'Brien, as one of the
jtrtnoipals.
Olayeon and his companions, who were
outbound from Dawson, had several thou
hnfl dollars In their pockets and it was
Cfliiolutfed that murder had been added to
robbery, and the bodies effectually dis
posctl of. A short time after, a tough
Character of the border, giving the name of
O'l'rien. was arrested on suspicion of he-tt-g
implicated in the supposed crime, and
Nlthmiqh " the evidence against htm waa
not nuffirient to hold him for the offence
itiiargctl, the police succeeded by bringing
fcrward other less important offences of
Which he vias plainly guilty in holding him
fw ewstody With the assistance of a Pink

they Industriously pursued aff avenues of
Investigation.
Only circumstantial evidence -was secur

while he was being taken to Selkirk in

which by their numbers were e'early

Clayton.
Now. by the Amur, conies the news of
lire fiudiug of the bodies of the murdered
trio. The bodies have been definitely lo

hole that was. but which now. of course,

Prof. Munyon believes that the i.cople

Those who offer remedies to the sick and

eases should fulfill all promises made or
suffer the same punishment. It is a crime
to deceive the sick.

PHILADELPHIA, March 22. Loaded
down with the proceeds of a robbery which
he committed at Xorrlstown, John Darnell,
an innocent-looking youth, was caught In
this city yesterday. He came here for the
purpose of disposing of the plunder, con
sisting of a collection of silverware worth
several hundred dollars and an overcoat,
which he had stolen from the residence Of
John H. Crankshaw, at Xorristowiu A
pawnbroker engaged in business at Thir
teenth and ML Vernon Streets caused his
arrest.
The young man called at the broker's es
tablishment soon after it had been opened
for the day and presented three valuable
pieces of silverware, upon which he asked
the loan of $1. The broker became suspi
cious and the young man became timid
when he was asked certain questions. The
broker sent one of his employes for a po
liceman without the youth knowlns it, and
when the bluecoat arrived the suspect al
most fainted. The youth said thnt tho sil
verware had been given to him and de
clared that it would be an outrage -to arrest
him He was, however, locked up, and
when searched articles of silverware were
fouud in every one of his pockefs. He also
had some concealed in tho waistband of his
trousers. The collection consisted of
knives, forks, spoons, and many other
things.
Witli the discovery of the additional ar
ticles which he had in his possession the
prisoner confessed how he gained posses
sion of them. He also admitted thut he
had stolen the overcoat and hat which he
was wearing. The police telegraphed to
Xorristown, and the reply confirmed the
prisoner's story.- He said that he robbed
the house single-handed. This statement
amazed the police, for the youth looked
anything but a thief.
The story of the robbery told when the
young man was arraigned later in the day
before Magistrate Jermon at the Central
Police Court, showed that he executed the
"job" like an experienced burglar. Al
though young In years, he is old in crime.
It was not. it is" Said, his first "job." He
claims that his downfall was brought
about by a man whom he met about a
year ago. His companion, who has since
died, had the reputation of being an ex
pert house robber, and the youth worked
under his tuition.
The prisoner is apparently no more than
seventeen years of age. According to his
story, he came to this country four years
ago from Liverpool, England, where he
was born. He has no friends here. He
was outof employment when he became
acquainted with his tutor in crime. It is
alleged that they committed several rob
beries together and were always lucky
enough to ex'ade arrest. Captain Miller
describes young Darrell as the slickest
young burglar he ever saw. "Unless he
reforms." said the captain, "he will be
come one of the most dangerous crimi
nals in the country."
The young burglar operated so cleverly
at the Crankshaw resideuce that none of
the family heard him. He left his old hat
at the houso. He walked all the way to
the city with his plunder. He was held
without bail by the magistrate and was
taken back to Xorristovn during the aft
ernoon by Chief of Police Rodenbaugh
