Such in brief is leading a double life, but who had, pre-last vioU8 to these disclosures, borne a 1 fjlr!v reputation here. | East Friday afternoon William Fa who was acting constable here during Mr. Baker's temporary ab- ! s-nce, received a message from the ! sheriff s office at Rathdrum directing . him to arrest Lllis Martin, for whom a warrant had been issued on com the climax to the record of one of ! 1 ! Sand point's young men who lias been plaint of a wronged girl's father j charging Martin with the grave crime ! of rape. With the assistance of Night Marshal Sawyer, Martin was enticed away from his home on Some pretext I and placed under arrest. This meth od was deemed advisable by the of ficers owing to the delicate health of Mrs. Martin, whom they were anxious to spare from the shock and humilia- j tion incident to the arrest of her tins- ! band at the home. ! After the arrest Mr. Sawyer, who : was not then on duty as an officer, turned the prisoner over to Mr. l a ff« r - The prisoner begged nut. to tie locked up until he could be taken to Bathdruin. which courtesy was ex j tondwl to him. After gaining this ttrst point the prisoner asked and was f ; granted the further privilege j ing to Kootenai for an interview with j i ; t he wronged girl. A couple of saddle i horses were procured and the officer accompanied Martin to Kootenai, but Martin did not accompany the officer hack to .^midpoint, which Martin had sought did not ter- minate satisfactorily. and an opportu- nity presenting, Martin gave the of- ficer tin slip and has not since been heard from. -ci . , , ... j !
