Chicago, Feb. 18. It was rumofod
about police headquarters lato last night
that Cooncy, "tho Fox." tho man who Is
so badly wanted as ono of Dr. Cronln's
murderers, had at last been captured.
All tho pollco officials on duty retained
a stolid silence, howover, and no admis
sions of any kind could bo gained from
them. Tho basis for the story that
Coonoy has been arrested Is a dispatch
recolved by Chief Marsh. Tho dispatch
was recolved at pollco headquarters and
transmitted to the chief. It read:
"Wo havo our man sure. Send man for
identification." On recolvlng tho dis
patch Chief Marsh sent an order back
to headquarters Immediately as follows:
"Send Collins; ho knows him, and don't
lot this story got out" A lato call was
mado at Officer Collins' homo and It
was ascertained ho had been called out
suddenly about 11:30 p. m.
A morning paper says Coonoy was at
rested last night at Hancock, Mich.
It Is Not Cooliev. tlie Vox.
Chicago, Fob. 18. A new and mosl
Important link has been picked up In
tho Cronln murder caso, and, from all
appearances, It Is now reasonably cer
tain that tho great murder conspiracy
will bo thoroughly oxposed. This link
consists In the arrest of ono of the prin
cipal actors In tho terrible tragedy of
May 4. Tho man who Is tinder arrest,
howover, Is not Cooney, "thn Fox,"
as was reported, and ho was
not arrested in Michigan. Tho
man who Is said to have played a more
Important part than Cooney In tho
bloody drama of tho Cronln conspiracy
and butchery was arrested In St. Louts
last evening by Olllcer Thomas, of tho
Central station. Tho man has been
sought long and vainly, and tho au
thorities bad almost glwn up all hopes
of being able to capture hiin. Chief
Marsh was very reticent this morning,
and refused to confirm tho reports.
There Is no doubt, however, that an im
portant arrest has been made.

St. Lons, Feb. 18. Chief Huebler
says that tho man arrested last night Is
not a resident of St. Louis, but has fre
quently visited the city slnco the mur
der. Dotcctivo Thomas, of Chicago,
and Detectives Freso and Zlegler havo
been on tho lookout for hlra for some
time, and succeeded In capturing him
last night
He denies that ho is tho man wanted
and witnesses aro on their way from
Chicago to Identify him.
Chief Huebler Bays that In caso ho Is
not tho man wanted, tho publication of
the name of the man whom thoy arc
looking for would put him on his guard
and prevent his arrest
The dispatch from Chicago may havo
been based on tho nows of the St Louis
arrest, a thing never dreamed of in
Chicago newspaper circles, and it is jus
posslblo that Cooney, "tho Fox," Is t
man under arrest, hero.
Later. "' at-
St. Lon, Feb. 18. It is now said
that tho man arrested here Is Thomas
W. Smith, who led Dr. Cronln to tho
Carlson cottage.
It is also reported that J. B. Simons
has been captured in Littlo Rock, Ark.,
and that Coonoy, "Tho Fox," has cer
tainly been captured at Hancock, Mich.

Buffalo, N. Y Feb. 19. Tho Cour
ier yesterday morning published an ox
tract from a prlvato letter written by a
armor In Edmunds County, S. D., to a
friend in this city, inclosing a circular
appeal sent out by tho central relief
;ommitteo calling attention to tho dis
tress of South Dakota farmers and
asking for help. Tho letter says:
Despite the facts s'.ited In the circular,
and 1 know them to bo true, all tho Inftu.
ence nnd power of w ealth aro emplojcd to
lllilo thoso facts from the knowledge of tho
States generally. The reason tor the adop
tion of this course by tho bankers, land
sharks and others ot that ilk of South I)jUu
ta is that they fear that If tho true stato ot
tho farmers Is known tho result will bo
disastrous to tlicui. These men havo even
gone to tho extent of sending emissaries In
advance of our representatives w ho aro ap.
pe.ulng for atd for u., denouncing them as
lni,ioslers collecting on their own account.
Cir loads of food hivu been detained lu
nviny depots owing to their representa
tions and wo are deprUcl of the food,
chillies and fuel we are so much In need of.
Tho letter also says that Governor
Mclletto did not cxaggerato whon ho
said that thousands wero on tho vergo
of starvation In Miner County alone,
and that nlnoteon counties wero sadly
In need of aid, and that South Dakota
could not possibly rollovo hor noedy
ones.
