SUSPECTED OF MURDER.
Edward William. Arrested lor the Mur der et Noah Benton at Delaware City. The decapitated body which was found on Saturday in the Delaware and Chesa peake eanal at Deaware City, iiag been identified as all that is left of Noah Ben son, a colored farm hand living in that vicinity. Yesterday, Immediately following the identification, State Detective Bernard J. McVay arrested Edward Williams, a disreputable colored man, living in the neighborhood, on suspicion of being the murderer of Benson. He was lodged In the lock-np at Delaware City, protesting his innocence all the while. The fact that he was arrested was due •olely to his loquacity. It was known that there was bad blood between the men over a colored damsel named Ella King. Benson diaappeared on Thanks giving night, after the festival which led to the stabbing of Rev. Samuel Am brose by John 8. Shorter. Benson took a prominent part in the affray as a sup porter of Ambrose. He left the hall for the farm of Samuel Beck and was never seen alive afterwards. As soon as the body was identified by a sore leg and a ring on the Viand as that of Benson, the suspected murderer, went around Delaware City saying that Ben son's son. who lives at Odessa, had told him that his father was living there with him. Detective McVey saw Benson's son He denied having told Williams any thing. This made it look as if Williams was trying to prevent an identification of the body and led to his arrest. This mornfng Deputy Coroner Giles, Coroner's Physician Smith and Detective McVey went to Delaware City to make further investigation, pending the find ing of a verdict by the jury. The eaia : will be dragged for the head of the mur dered man. DRIVERS OF IRON STEEDS' Locomotive Engineers Entertained in Eden Hall Yesterday.
