Are Not Easy to
None of Escaped Pris
oners Found.
Claimed That Reward Was Re
fused Officer Collon.
Though repeated reports have come
to tho ears of Sherlir Kelly and the
local police, from people who claim
to havo seen one or more of the pris
oners who escaped from tho County
jail recently, there seems to bo but
little activity among the people who
have seen, about bringing nbqut tio
arrest "of the prisoners.
It Is claimed that the rewards are
hard to get, even after- giving the In
formation leading 'to the arrests, and
the poople simply refuse to take the
trouble, it is further tated that In
tho case of Ofllccr It. A. Colton, of
Bnrborton, who succeeded In landing
Pan Mjers, after he had escaped and
was hanging about Johnson's Corners,
the reward for the recovery of Myers
wis refused Colton, when he applied
for it at the office of the County Com
missioners. Other pcoplo who believe
they could land some of tho prisoners
are reluctant about setting out In pur
suit for they fear there may bo trou
ble about getting their rewards.
Sheriff Kelly and his deputies have
as yet no definite Information nbnut
nny of the prisoners who escaped the
last time and who are still at large.

Business May Be Re
vived. .
There Is Talk of Reorganizing
the Trust.
Cleveland, Nov. 22. Hans have
been made by the blcjcle trust, the
American Bicycle Co., to put now vim
lino Its business. At a meeting of.
olltcers held here Friday, It was de
cided to lift the receivership, reor
ganize the company and put $2,000,000
more, money Into it. It is said thjit
pi lees of wheels may be raised, but
not now, of course, on account of tho
fact that this year's season Is prac
tically ended.
A popular opinion prevails that the
bicycle business in thlK country is
dead. Figures do not verify this. Ijijit
year over 000,000 bicycles wore sold
in tlfis country, bringing in between
?11,000,G00 and $12,000,000. and yet
