A SUSPICIOUS
4 CHARACTER
IS HElD
May Prove to Be Chick Sullivan
Who is Wanted at Lynn
Mass for Murder
1
The county authorities now have in
their custody a man who bears every
resemblance to Chick Sullivan who
is badly wanted in Lynn Mass for
murder The man was arrested by
Deputy Brewton at McDaviil where
he was working in a saw mill having
recently reached that place
The arrest was made Thursday and
at noon of that day Deputy Saunders
went to McDavId to have a look at the
prisoner taking with him a photo
graph and description of Sullivan All
of the marks described were on the
man under arrest and the photograph
is his exact resemblance In fact the
stranger admitted that he would take
the picture for one of himself
A photograph of the man was made
yesterday and forwarded to Lynn
Mass to the authorities for identifi
cation and if it should prove that the
m n is Sullivan the count authorities
will receive a reward of about 500
Sullivan has been at large for a
number of months and every effort has
been made to capture him but with
out success but it is confidently be
lieved that the stranger now in jail
here is the right party He will be
held until advices are received from
Massachusetts

transact their business here and get
back home on the same day
The Florate train is to be taken off

than they are now getting The

of great ± advantage to Pensacola na
well as to the towns along the Hue
While the train will be what is known
as a mixed train ha ml ling both
freight and passengers it will afford
much better facilities for travel than
we have heretofore had and If the
piitronage warrants it there is little
reason to doubt that a regular passen
ger train will later be put on
The development of PensacoJea
wholesale business during the past five
years ha increased travel in and ont
of ths city to a very great extent and
the new service Which the L do If
will begin tomorrow will still further
augment the business of the Deep
