Story of Murder. A story of how the Chlcago arlist met his death has just been made pub? llc. lt Is to the effect that ha was | attacked at thu upper end of the clty j early Saturday nlght and struck ln! the hcad with a rock by u negro and, rendered etenaeless. Afterwarda he' waa plcked up and carrled by three negroes to tho barren n.id wr.pre hla body waa found. Thero ono of thel negroes hncked lils throat \vi\tlo two others held hla arms and leg.-i. Prlor to taking hini to thn spot whero hla body wus found lils ovcrcoat was re- j moved, and they conwved hlm iu that. It is reported that one of the negroes told tho story when he stopped over , night at thu home of a negro woman. Ile told her of having struck a white nian ln tho head after the latter had called him an ugly name. According to the pollce. 1-Mnes i.s tliirty-slx yeara old, and has a police record. On one occaalon he kllled a negro whom the police were puraulng, and probably saved tlie llfo of a po llceman. Hc was promptly acquitted for this offense. Up has, however, served many jall scntences for petty crimes. ' Dorsey, the pollce suy, Is a gambler. Ho follows no regular employnient, and has been ln the Polico Court on several occaslons. He Ia twcnty-elght years old. Johnson is ahout tr?eiity-flvo years old. Ho has been ln the Police Court but seldom, and in each instance the caso against hlm was a mlnor offen_e. Smlth, who, lt ls sald, gave the con fesslon whlch led to the arrest of tho men, came here several years ago from Chicago, and Ia an uphol3terer. He is about thlrty-flve years old. The only pollce record he has is In connec? tlon With his business. Men Strongly Gunrdrd. The three men ln custody wero strongly guarded to-day, and no one, not even newspaper people, were al? lowed to communlcate wlth them. Johnson was conveyed to tho city Jail, while Plnes was placed at ono end of the pollce station and Dorsey at tho other. Smlth, who, the pollce still main taln, is held In connectlon wltli the larceny of a watch, ls conflned in a sopurate room at police station. The holdlng ot Smith is regarded aa signlii cant, ln view of the fact that he was not even glven a preliminary hearlng In the Polico Court thls morning. Chief Goods, when asked about thls, said he would probably awalt the dlspdaitl.on of the other cases prior to Smith'a ar raignmont. FITTIXG TRinCTE PAID.
