Arrest ok Tramps.?Much excitcuieut
Wurf created throughout tbe city yester?
eveniog by tbe arr<-.-t of eleven tranipsiu a
railroad cut)U9t weit of the city. The tramps
had congregated iu the cut und were en
j jy i ?< theui-idvrrf ilruikiujz beer from a
it- i, when the officers miroutided them.
Their disorderly behavior attracted the at
tertion of s.,rna of the r?-i iileuts of that lo?
cality aud lb* police were cotiGed. Tbe
ttlicers repaired to the place, nnrroundrd |
tbe men and closed in upon tbun. When
the tramps discovered that they were about
to bi arre-*t!-d tbey broke ai<d ran, but after
a cba-e through a neighboring marsh
moBi of thern were captured auo ta^eu to
the Station houa-;on th>'ir way th'th^r two
of them escaped. Ou the me.u were touud
five new piM'olrf, about twentv new knives,
a lot of cheap jawe ry, & -. The meu were
locked up lilt into movmog when eii of them
were sent t>?j-?:i to aw.it further develop?
ments ar d four oi her:' were discharged. Iu
the capture lh< police v.ete aided by a num?
ber of citiz-DS and ihn cb*se t?f;er the
tramps was very ^xeitirg. In the mean
nru~ vatIOUS reports had been baited?one
that the men were train r. H? r-; another,
thai fbey were Chicago burglars who had
t<eeu followed frooi that cny hy a detective
and anoihnr that tbe p-undt-r found on ih?m
wbb from the recent Petersburg fire. The
latter story Feeras the most probo^le. The
march of tbe tramps through the ?tffets at?
tracted a l?<-ge crowd, and, us el o-luted,
caused tau?ti excitemenr. One of the n>eu
on whose person whs found several pistole
?nd knives said he. was a "laki " aud made
his living by carrying on a ring a.*:d cane
gauie, the pistols anil knives being the
pri/.-s. He t-howed the papers ol a dis?
charged poidier. Th's morning burglar's
implements were found on the ground where
*ce men were arrested.
