If ho did not do tho deed ho cor tainly is implicated and know of it at tho time of its occurrence Monday morning City Marshall Jones of Hubbard City, voceived a card announoing tho reward offered for the murderers. Ho was with a Waco man at tho timo and as soon as ho rend the description of tho clothes worn by tho negroes ho remarked. 'That negro was here Saturday." Tho two thon began to mako inquir ies and somo ono volunteered the information that tho shirt worn by the teller of tho two negroes had been found lying on tho railway traoi near tho depot Tho garmont was secured and mailed to Sheriff Ford in this city. Sheriff Ford wired to Marshall Jones that the shirt was the one worn by tho assassin and that he would bo in Hubbard City on tho next train. He went up on the evening train Monday and spent tho n'ght and next morning searching for the men. Whun the Odd Fellows' excursion was nearly duo at Hubbard City Sheriff Ford and Marshall Jones wont to tho depot hoping to get somo information. While at the depot they notioed a coal black nogro slowly walking up tho track to wards them. As soon rs he was noticed Sheriff Ford said 10 Mr. Jones there comes a negro that is guilty of somo crime. As soon as ho got to tho depot tho officers called him and he came to them not knowing that they wore of ficers. When he came up Mr. Ford noticed a suspicious swelling of ono of his pockets and asked him what ho bad in it. The reply was, "Nothin but a hank'chief." Just at this stigo of tho game of dodge Marshall Jones inserted his hand and brought forth tho " hand' chief." It was of ,the Bull dog species and of forty-four calibre. By this time the negro was badly Ecarcd and whon the question was put as to what his bunalo con tained ho replied tersely, "'nother gun" Ho then began to inquire for what he was arrested, seemingly very anxious to know tho charges. When asked if pistol oarrying was not enough he replied, ''Taint for that, you got sumfia elso agin me." Well, what have you done, asked Sheriff Ford. Notbin, but I tell you, boss, did NOT KILL THAT MAX. When asked what man he meant he had nothing to say. Ho saw that he had implicatod himself and camo to tho conclusion that he had better keep his mouth shut, a conclusion ho al hered to until ho got to Waco this morning. When ho got to Sheriff Ford's office a News reporter succeeded in getting him to talk and ho made a statement substantially af follows; "My name is John Grant and I am an escaped oonviot. I was sent to the penitentiary from Sherman for assault with intent to kill and was put to work on the Ellis farm in Fort Bend county I got tired of tho work and when I got a good chance I ran away. I was a trusty and had plenty of ohances to escape. I think it was last October or November that I got away. I car ried them pistols cause I did not want to bo caught if I could help it. I worked for some men near HiUsb ro from Monday (18th)to Friday and know nothing of tho murdor. If tho man is not the one sought for he is evidently a dangerous man to bo at largo and his capturo is a good ono Tho officers aro still looking for tho' other negro. The News repoiters have beon keeping a olese watch on Sheriff Fords movnments evor since he first receiv ed tho information that tho man had been seen and now takes pleasure in first croing to the public tho news. Sheriff Ford has dono some splen did work in hunting down the assas sins of Mr. Kaufman and the News is much indebted to him for information.
