Wollt or Frankhauser identification was made complete today when A. W. Mirrifleld, U. S. marshal of Montana, vtfited the Clay county jail today and after conferring with the notorious bandit brought forth the admission from the prisoner that he was the man wanted for the holdup in Mon tana. Wolff broke jail at Helena on March 21, this year, and since that time the Montana authorities have been scouring te country for Wolff and 1 1" ",c. two newspaper men, Marshal Merri field went out to the jail to see Frank hauser, who Is confined in the solitary on the second floor, under special con tinuous guard. When first the marshal peered through the small aperture of the cell door and called Frankhauser by name, the latter, half turning round said, "I don't know you." At first the marshal expressed a doubt, saying that if the prisoner was the man wanted he had changed considerably. The cell door was opened by Sheriff Whaley and in went the tnarshal and sat down by the side of Frankhauser, whose hand marks tallied with descriptions in the possession of the marshal. Teeth Prove His Undoing. The two entered into conversation about the breaking of jail at Helena, Mont., March 21, last, and soon the stolidity assumed by the prisoner be gan to disappear and in a few moments the two began to be quite chummy, but the prisoner denied that he was the man wanted. Frankhauser was finally left and his cell door locked up again. After a short consultation Marshal Merrifield was admitted to the cell again, this time to examine the pris oner's teeth, and there was the lat ter's undoing. The description stated that, he wore an upper plate with sev en teeth in It. and that two molars on the right side were out. That part was fully confirmed and a characteris tic smile of the prisoner further es tablished his identity in the mind of Marshal Merrifield, and after the ex change of a few words, Frankhauser said the Jig was up and stated that he was the man and that he was willing to go over the railroai with Merrifield. his partner in crime. dancing of a paving proposition.
