CO Bassett's capture is considered a star ki' play, a case that has taxed the inge- le1 nuity of the best detectives. It was pr during September that the bookkeeper of N suddenly disappeared.

Bassett was a Denver, Colo., coal gi merchant before going to Chicago. a Going to the latter city he found em ployment with the Swift Packing Com pany, about the same time becoming infatuated !ith a woman of high life.

When arrested he had $400 and two diamond rings, and a -promissorynote for $100 in his pocket. The Pinkerton men left for Chicago Thursday iight with their prisoner.
