Strong Clew to Accomplice of
Lawrence Edwards Convicted
Burglar Possessed by Sheriff
Business in the circuit court is
agging. Because of the settlement

had been set down for trial, only a
small grist of miscellaneous business
s being transacted. Judge Bernetha

The case of Bessie Fretz, versus the
Chicago & Frie By., venued from
Fulton county, wliich was to have
been tried this week has been con-
inued until the February term. The
entire term will not be crowded with
A feature of the ease of Lawrence
Edwards .convicted of burglarizing
the' residence of Dr. II. P. Preston
which did not appear in the trial,
is a clew possessed by sheriff Daniel
Voreis, pointing to the accomplice of
Edwards in his crime. Because of
the lack of interest in the affair ex
hibited by the parole officer of tht
Jeffersonville prison, this suspect has
been allowed to slip away and an
easy capture lost by default.
The suspected accomplice is Ben
Rut eher age 20, who was in the em
ploy of the Borton and Aspinall
Sanitarium in this city, until this
fall. Butcher was taken by the local
mstitut ion, a paroled . convict fron'
the Jefferson vi lie prison, where he
'ad been sent on a-convicted charge
of larceny.
The first clew to the accomplice,
was obtained by sheriff Voreis, when
among other things found In the
pockets of Edwards at the time of hU
arrest, was a card, bearing an ad
Iress written in pencil. The address
was scribled on the back of a cam
paign, candidate's card. The address
written thereon was as follows
am Bucher, 4.32 . S. Franklin So.
Bend. A trip to South Bend by
heriff Voreis, revealed the fact that
Tei Butchei has resided at that ad
Iress up to within two weeks of that j
time, then he had removed to 000
south Chapin street. It was also
found that lie was cohabiting with a
rirl from Plymouth, Bonnie Beck,
and the two were posing .as man and
wife. Other evidence was disclosed
by neighbors ,who told that Butchei
was out of the city on dates corres
nonding to the night before and night
'if the Preston burglar;,'. Other cir
cumstances connected Butcher with
he robbery of the Adams Express off
ice here, which occurred a few weeks
before. Alo on that date, Butcher
was awav from Sonth Bend.
A Pinkerton expert at South Bend
was consulted, and the card bearing
the address found in the pocket of
Edwards, was compared with the sig
nature of Butcher. The expert stated
that there was no doubt that the
writting was made by one and the
same person. "With this evidence,
sheriff Voreis wrote to the parolo
officer, stating the case which he had
unravelled ,and asked that officer to
come, and investigate. The' reply
was that the officer woald be here
within a few days. He ; failed to
come, and tue case was cropped
hrough default. With the evidence
obtained .totrether with the former
record of Butcher ,there seems to be
no question that he was either the
accomplice or principle in both the
Adams Express .and Preston burglar
ies. Through his residence in Ply
mouth, he obtained knowledge of the
oral conditions. Whether he is still
n South Bend is not known, but iho
probabilities are that with news of
he capture of Edwards here, he has
eft that city for other parts. As a
result the commonwealth has a dan
gerous character abroad, who might
lave been apprehended, and recom
mitted to prison.

Appellate Court, in t lie petition of
Arthur W. (VKeefe, for rehearing, in
the Marshall Count v Court House
case' graute! petition for rehearing
The court in its finding affirmed part
of the ruling of Special Judge Moses
R Lairy, an! reversed a part. The
part reversed was in reference to the
remodeling of ti e surveyor's office in
the court house, an item of aboui
$900. All of thf remainder was in
affirmation of thf Lairy decision.
The verdict is a great victory for
O'Keefe, who no doubt will now pro
ceed with the repair of the court
house, excepting the.natler of the
interior decoration of the court room
ruled out by Lairy, and the remodel
ing of the surveyor's office ruled ou
