Run Him Down. se
After chasing for two months, all the RJ
,way from Chicago to New York and mt
back again, W. A. Pinkerton and
Superintendent Thomas A. Vallius, of
tr the Chicago Pinkerton agency Thurs
day arrested in New Orleans James
E. Bassett, trusted employe and book
keeper of the Swift Packing Company Y
of Chicago, on the charge of having to
embezzled $6,000 from his employer. 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. Suspicion was to
aroused, and the Swift Company found
to their surprise that Bassett was a
g defaulter to the extent of $40,000. He
was insured with the Fidelity and De- at
posit Company of MIaryland, and this in
company had signed his bond. James en
E. 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.
He lived bNyond his means, and it is
said that vwhen the cashier would turn
in cash to him for deposit in the bank,
Bassett would pocket the cash and enter
it up as a deposit. 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.

a three or four men with him.
Some of these were on the steam ferry C
boat, with the sheriff, and some near
the margin of the river when the arrest
