Otder BU Arrjat mni Oommttmiat to the State Kefcrmatorr, to Water II Wat Santncel la IC9S, Bat KratJed the Aathorltias Siaos the Snprams Cout Gave Its Decision. Information bas been received by Sheriff Hemenway to the effect that Eldie Shevlin has returned to his familiar haunts in Chicago. He has not yet seived the term in the state reformatory, . to which he was sen tenced at the May, 1&96, term of the ttoct island county circuit court. The sheriff is anxious to capture anevnn, wno is a member of a no torious gang, and has written the Chicago authorities, who have the commitment papers, to nail him on aignt ana lorward him to the reform school. It will be recalled that the Shevlin gang accompanied Buffalo Bill's wild west Fhow to Bock Island in May two years ago, and made a wholesale raid. Houses were robbed, pockets picked, and people held up in broad day light by members of the gang. Three of them, Eddie Shevlin, John Rice and James Wilson, were detect ed in the act of robbing Charles Walker, of Davenport, of a diamond shirt stud in front of Mitchell & Lyndc's building while the circus parade was passing along the av enue. They were convicted In the circuit court of assault with intent to commit larceny. Rloe and . Wil son were sentenced to the peniten tiary, wbiio .hevlin, who claimed to be brtt 19 years of ege, was sen tence) to the reform school. Rloe and Wilson were taken to the pen. but Shevlin, who seemed to have unlimited financial backing, took an appeal to tho supreme court, being released cn bail pending the decis ion ol ttaat tribunal, which subae queptly affirmed the verdict of the lower court. Hence, Shevlin was compelled to serve his sentence, but he could not be located. He was traced as far as Canada. There he was lost trck of. And nothijir has been heard of hits until now, when it is understood he has come back, evi dently under tho impression that tbe storm hs passed over. There is also an indictment against Shevlin here for holding up a Davenport stock barer and robbing him of f 125 Itrotbi r tioet to ttia Fee. Mi'ue Shevlin, a brother ct Eldie, has ja&t cen convieted in Chicsgc ct robbery, und sent to tho peniten tiaty. THIS THING CUTS ICE 0pt. .UcUlaley'j 8lf: 8ll a?
