Chief Finley, State Highway

comprized the American party
who located the Lincoln coupé at
Highwater yesterday. A Caledon-ian-Record
reporter accompanied
the officers, leaving St. Johnsbui-y
yesterday afternoon at 2.00 o'clock.

is- the next station beyond North

Inspector Clark told the Anici'

of the Canadian customs. Mr.
Clark and two of his confreres
wero on the ciuivive 10 miles up a
back road fi'om Highwater before

lay in wait, he said for a big Pierre
Arrow that suppo.-edly bore a car

George P. Mills carne along in the
Lincoln coupé. Inspector Clark

ribeau had a gun and I told my
fellow offici t to look out. He went
over to the other side of the car
and Barribeau Iviiii'ed the gun over
to him."
Before the Canadian customs
officers and the two bandits return
ed to Highwater it was ò."0 in the
morning. Mills and Barribeau were
allowed to go to the Central House
the only hotel in Highwater for a
little sleep. They proniiscd the
Canadian cu.-toms men that they
would return to the former.-' office
about 10.00 yesterday moining to
explain matters.
The only charge that the Cana

pair of bandits was that of iliegallv
entering the Dominion of Canada
Mills and Barribeau had not re
ported at either the L'nited States
customs at North Trov or at the
Canadian customs at Highwater.
About 10 o'clock yesterdav
morning Mills carne from the hotel
to the Canadian customs otFicc.
Barribeau did not come and a
search disclo-ed the fact that he
had made tracks over the bill to

chase to Barribeau. They trailed
his fresh footprints l'or a few miles j
and then lo.-t trace ol' bini, ln.-pect- i

Dickens told the Canadian officers
the entire story of the hold-up at
West Danville, clearly substantia

but due to government "red tape,"
said he preferred to keep the Lin

not be reached on the telephone

attorney was notified that the car
had been locateci.
Mr. Warner is expected to come

At North Troy, the American
party stopped for a minute at the
