Oil City Derrick, Oct. 26th. Yesterday a'ternoon a man was arrested in this city, whose record of crimes evidently extends over many States of the union, and who has been successful in swindling many people. His latest crime is a robbery iu Allegheny, which was the prime cause of his sleeping in the city lock-up last evening. The fol lowing letter, received by chief of police Aeill a tew days ago, gives a oiinu'e description of the swindler, and also the crime for which lie is wanted: ALLEGHENY CITY, Oct. 14, 1879. ! j , a as Chief of Police Wanted on r charge of robbery, Rev.

The morning they were to start the Colon el got up at four o'clock and left for parts unknown, tie tooK wun mm the jewelry which J have described. He tried the same irame iu Beaver and Sharon, Youngstown, Ohio, but without success in either of tbe last named places, tie lsgomglrom place to place playing the same game. The Smiths placed so much confidence in him that they gave him the full run of the house, and he took advantage ol it and robbed them. He will go to a house and represent himself as a cousin or some re lation. He did so in Youngstown and made the family believe he was a cousin. He registered in Youngstown as Colonel Wni- f - nates, jerry mith, Detective, .Mayor's office, Allegheny City. HOW HE WAS CAUGHT. for To describe bow it was that this man of many aliases was captured in this city, we must go back to Ash tabula county, and give the story told by A. W. Stiles, sheriff of that county, and James Thorpe, marshal ..... , . , ot Asntauuia city, wno aiaea in we capture of the man yesterday in Oil City. About two weeks ago this Colonel JIurphy, or Bates, fcc, came to the house of a poor family named Loveland, in Richmond, Ashtabula county. The family was iu a desti tute condition, and so poor that they lived in a barn. He represented him self as JUDSON B. NILES, i" an- one two its the aud V O. a brother-in-law of Christopher Love- land. This Judson B. Niles had not been beard of in the family for twenty-one years, and after that lapse Qf time it was not strange tnat they Fhould be deceived Dy ine mi poster. The bogus Niles said b had traveled in Europe, .ratesune. Brazil and all over the world. He was now from Oregon, and was a Colonel in the regular army, in which he enlisted in 180, and was also an ordained minister in Oregon About a week ago the man went to Jefferson, where some friends to whorn, he represented hiroselr as Niles, introduced him to Sheriff Stiles: The sheriff, an old soldier, asked him what resiment he belong ed to. ''Fourth .Nebraska, was tne an swer. But regiments are not designated by States, since the war," said the Bherin!. "Ob, I belong to the Fourth Ne braska regular."' The regular army doesn't hav State designations," was the reply, "But that's what I belong to, said the bogus colonel. further questions wew asked, and the sheriff 'soon became convinced that the man didn't belong to th army, beveral others said he was not Judson B. Niles, while others declared he was. One man asked him if he remembered certain things which never happened and on his saying he did told him he was a ras cal. Nothing more was heard from the chap until the sheriff received telegram from Andover, saying h was wanted there. On arriving at the place, he was met by a Mrs, Aid rich, who told the following STRANGE 8TOBT. best al 0. Three years ago she lived in Port land, Oregon, with her husband. practicing physician. One nigh her husband was called to make visit, and nothing was ever heard of him afterward. She had been told the story before by this Judson B, Niles, that he saw her husband die, llis story was, that the doctor was stoned to death in a house guarded by soldiers, and that he gave him (Niles) his gold watch, $326 in gold and several keepsakes, and JN lies sai he would return all this to Mrs. Aid rich as soon as she could establis her identity. The story nearly set the woman crazy, and she tried sev eral times to have further interview with hirn, but he escaped her. At the same time he was making efforts to purchase some property of Mr. C. D. Ainger, a young lawyer of that place. Believing him to be a swindler, Ainger drew him ou by pretending innocence until the prop erty had been surveyed and other preliminaries gone into, but Niles didn't quite purchase. At the same time he also pretended to have $40, 000 in trust for a family named Gol ler, which he bad discovered they were heir to while in England. Mrs. Aldrich, brooding over the story told her, finally had a search warrant got out, and it was served, but without finding anything except the ring de scribed later in the above letter from Allegheny. At that time he told Mrs. Aldrich he was a mitister of the gospel, and for her to put her trust iu him and all would be well. FOLLOWING HIM. Friday Sheriff Stiles' deputy went to Ashtabula and there saw Marshal Thorpe, who showed him the above ... t ii letter Irom Allegheny, and asKea u the chap had been Feen in that sec tion. The description ws at once recognized as being Judson B. Niles. Mr. Thorpe went to Jefferson and in company with Sheriff Stiles they started to find their man. All that night the two men rode, but the bird had flown. Traces of him were discovered, aud he was followed across the State line into Pennsyl vania. Here a house was found where he had stopped over night. The man of the house was away, but with smooth tongue and soft words he crept into the good will of the women folks. He advanced so far that he promised to come back and marry one of the girls, and showed a cut of a house on a lightning rod advertisement as the home which he owned in Illinois. It was not strange that with his honeyed words he pre vailed on the young lady to take him to JUeadville yesterday morning, promising, however, to give her ten dollars for her trouble. Sheriff Stiles and Mr. Thorpe arrived at the house yesterday, and asked the lady if such a person had been there. They were informed that he had, and also been taken to MeadviIIe. The young lady was also asked if he aid her the ten dollars. febe re plied, "No, but he's coming back to night, and will do it then." THE SWINDLER'S CAPTURE. The two men soon after learned that he had gone to Oil City, and came here at once. They put them selves in communication with the policemen, and soon learned the whereabouts of their man. He had been seen on the streets in the morn ing, and was then stopping at Mrs. Benn's in the third ward. Chief of police Neill and the Sheriff took up a position on the suspension bridge where the house could be seen, and had been there but a few moments when their man was seen going up Alain street. Sheriff Stiles did not want to be seen, so he followed be hind Neill,and with Akin and Thorpe ahead thev hurried after their man When nearly to the iron bridge they caught up with him and he stepped to one side to allow them to pass. The police, who were ahead, passed by a few steps, bherin! Stiles coming behind stopped and saluted him with "Halloo, coloneL" He didn't seem overjoyed to meet him, but he said, "Halloo, you here?" "les. Ainger wants you to come back to Jefferson and purchase that property." "Oh, I m going back soon." "And that girl that drove von to Meadviile, wants her ten dollars." Just then lhorpe came up and recognized him as Captain Benham, whom he arrested a year ago in Ash tabula, for swindling. At that time he was taken to Cleveland and was given ninety days in the workhouse. Thorpe said: "Hello, Benham." The colonel didn't recognize him, denied being in Ashtabula, and said be was never arrested. Hat be was arrested now, and soon put in the lock up. His person was searched, and numerous papers and jewelry found on him. A black cane with ivory handle, a major's uniform with two decorations and a duster were tied up in his shawl strap. He took his arrest very coolly, and refused to talk. The papers found on his person were as follows; Halt sheet foolscap, backed as fol lowss $567,87, bill of sale to Beatty & Besson.

Mrs. W. replied she supposed she would be called that. He then ask ed her the names of her husband's relatives, and on being told, asked if she had heard from Andrew Wae mer. She replied he was dead. "You are mistaken," said the ma nor 1 am "Andrew waemer. ine report of my death was false. Ihe swindler then began a long conversation about the Waemer fam ily giving Mrs. W. a full account of their recent history, where the members now were, and who had died and the names of those still liv ing. He showed considerable know ledge of the family, and mentioned many incidents which Mrs. Waemer kuew to be true. He also informed her that he had been in the army nine years, was a major and also an ordained Methodist minister. Speak ing of himself the Major said he was a widower, Tns wife dying several years ago, and he was now traveling about the country for recreation. On Sunday he intended to preach in this city. Inquiries were made of Mrs. W. respecting her daughters, and on being informed one of them work ed al Mrs. Benn s in the lhirrt ward, he said he would go and see her and also get a room there to stay all night. He took his meals at Mrs. Waemer s, saving grace each time, and appearing yery devout. Satur- morning he mentioned that his watch had been left at a jeweler's to be fix ed, and asked Nannie Waemer if he might wear the one she owned. Miss. Nannie refused, but her mother had an oroide one which she produced and the major took it. He also chan ged a locket which he got from tin the ck- Smith family in Allegheny for a lock et Miss Nannie was wearing. Sat urday forenoon he asked Mrs. Wae mer, whom he called sister, to trust her daughter Sadie with him, and he would take her to his home in the west. At the same time he pro duced a cut on a lightning rod ad vertisement and folding the paper so the reading could not be seen showed it as a picture of his mag- nincient mansion. After some con sulfation it wai decided that badie should accompany him, and if the home suited her was to stay there, he promising to make her his heiress, He was also familiar with the de tails of some property coming from the VY aemer family, in which lie said Mrs. Warmer was interested Mrs. Waemer had often heard of this property, and when he showed her a paper, which, he kept careful ly in his own hand, and said it was the deed of the property, Bhe took it for granted it was so. During the forenoon the Major also pressed his clothes, ripped off the binding of his gray suit, put in some cloth to stiffen it and then sew ed it on himself, doing the work neatly and quickly. Ho then spied tt valise in the corner, and said as he was to bo running around this vi cinity for some time he would like to use it till he was ready to leave. He was given his choice between two small valises, and finally picked up the best and packed it with his I K I I I clothes. He then went to Mrs. Benn's, saying he would return in an hour, and in the evening he wanted to see the. whole family together. But when he was returning the officers fastened on to him, as described elsewhere. Besides the articles before men tioned, there was found on his per son the watch taken from Mr3.

He also tore up a discharge from a lodge of Knights of Honor in Wabash, Ind. No.1,296, and several unimportant papers. On being asked Saturday night what his name was, he said he would give his name at the proper time. He also declared he was a Major in the regular army, but had I got into a little trouble while bay- ing some sport around the country on a vacation, ana aiau i want, to disgrace his regiment or army by giving his real name. "At the prop time, however, said he, "I will give it." Yesterday morning detective omith, irom Aiiegneny, arnvea in ine city. Smith recognized the prisoner at once. He said he had been operat ing in Westmoreland county before became to Allegheny. While in Westmoreland he scared the- 6heruf of the county by showing him a pa per purporting to be a mortgage on the sheriffs farm. About eleven o'clock, detective Smith, chief of police, and a Derrick reporter visited tbe Major in his cell. He was found reading the sto ry of his crimes in the Sunday Der- rick. Detective Smith asked him if he would go to Allegheny wit h him, and the Major replied he would, "But." said he. "the Smiths will never appear against me, "I guess they will," said the de tective.

He doesn't steal in the true sense of the word, but having got into the confidence of a family by representing himself as some rel ative, he informs them that he is lost without bis gold watch, which he has left at a jeweler's to be fixed ; or he admires a ring and would like to have one made like it, or his va lise is too heavy to carry around town, and he would like to borrow one while he remains about.

In bis cell yesterday, he was rath- er a pleasant appearing man,espec:al- ly when asserting bis innocence. His hat being removed showed a thick head of curly, brown hair, worn long. A large lock fell down over his forehead; his hair being parted on the right side. Beneath thin brown eyebrows were two gray eyes, of that slight variety which look watery. A brown mustache, chin whiskers, and light side whisk ers, covered the -lower portion of his small face. A thin, straight nose, rather peaked, together with his weak looking eyes, gave his face the appearance of having been pulled downward very forcibly some day by a person grabbing hold of the nose. abbmg hold ot the nose, While in Ashtabula county he made appointments to preach in sev- eral places, and at Leon a concert was arranged tor last ihursday ev- eniuing, at which the major promis ed to sing air Indian song. But Thursday night he left without keep ing his appointments. Last night the major was dressed iu his uniform, and started for Pitts burgh handcuffed to detective Smith. At the depot, when fastened wilh handcuffs to the wrist of detective Smith, he appeared as cool as a cu cumber, and smiled derisively at the curiosity of the crwd of spectators who gathered around him. lie wore his gaudy uniform, had a silk scarf aboia his neck, under bis coat, and sported a pair of kid gloves, while tbe otheer had none.
