Hutchlnson , n wealthy farmer of Saundcrs county , ended nbout 10 o'clock tonight in the probable murder of Mrs Greene by Hutehlnson. The old gentleman called to sco the charming glass widow eailv In the evening In the flat over Ma's stoic nnd the two sat In the pirlor for some tlmo , the cloven-ear old daughter of Mis. Oiccno being the only other person present. Suddenly the other members of the house hold v\cro startled by the reports of n number of pistol shots , and on rushing Into the kitchen , Mrs Greene's brother saw Hutchlnson pursuing the woman with a revolver She crawled under thn table , but Hutchtnson continued firing , nnd while thus c-ouching for the Ihbt time hho was stiuck bv DUO of tlio bullets. The mlssllo pierced her back near the spinal column , nnd the cowardly murdotor held the weapon almost against the woman's body. Mrs Greene dropped helpless after the bul let was fired. Hutchlnson realised that ho had committed a murder , nnd rushed out of the door nnd down the stairway , attempting to commit sulcldo by blowing his brains.out , but every chamber of his revolver hnd been emptied nnd ho was umiblo to cuiyout his puiposo. The biothor gnvo chase , but the murderer dashed down the street and es caped in the darkness. For several minutes the wildest excitement prevailed In the block , nnd it was some tlmo before the police vvcro summoned. It was then too Into to got any trace of the man. A number of physicians wore called In nnd they piobcd In vnln for the bullot. The leaden mlssllo had sevcicd the spinal cord , paralv/lng the entire body below that point , but the couisu of the bullet could not bo traced any further. It Is believed that it has pierced some of the vital oigans und that the woman cannot llvo. There is a story back of the ease which Is hard to got at. But as near as can bo leained . It is as follows : Hutchinson had become Infatuated with the widow nnd has been making frequent calls on her. She finally got into the confidence of the old gon- tlcniau nnd managed to got hold of / 'aboutlOJO , worth of papers belong ing to him. This caused a great disturbance between Hutchinson and his grown-up sons , and the wealthy old faimor evidently came up today to tiv and got back the papers which had been en trusted to Mis. Greene. Mrs. Greene has resided for some years In Lincoln , but formerly lived In Koya Pahu county , where she owns some property. Later she lived in Omaha. She has been re- patcd to bo a females dotcctlvo , but the rumor has never been confirmed. A H'A V ll'/TJl TUB Preparations Tor Putting tlio Meat lu- Hpectlon Law Into Operation.

Tlio two nro younger men than Huby , who appears to bo ibout thlrt-tlvo , and one of them , L'mnk Tobtn , is the son of W II.

Tbo other , nimer Nelson , also works with a brother in the same neighborhood. According to Huby's story Tobin 01 igluatcd the scheme nnd only a few dav s past ar- langed Iho plan with the others.

[ Special Tele- giam to TUG Bi.r. ] When the train came up from Lincoln todav a crowd of people hud gathered aiound the depot to sec the bank robbers who were captured this morning. As soon as the tt am stopped , the prisoners , who were In charge of D. M. Dean and D. W. Binnea of this place , and Marshal Craig of Greenwood , were hustled off to the city hall where they weio brought before Justice Hlxson. Huby was brought fiom tlio cooler , and the charges of shooting with Intent to kill and of attempting to rob the bank were read to thorn. All pleaded guilty to tno second count , nnd Tobin nnd Ruby pleaded guilty to the first. Kuby's plea on this was made without fully understanding that It was only for the shooting of Mr. Johnson and not for the shooting done whllo bo was being chased , as that seomcd , . to be what ho"\vas thinking of. The * nien waived examination , and in less than twenty-four hour : , after the attempt on tile bank they were on their way to the county Jail In charuo of Shenff Hyan and Constables Griffin nnd Taylor. Their bonds were fixed nt $2,000 , each. Nelson und Tobin think they will bo able to glv o bonds , but It is very doubtful. Tobin is about twenty-five jcais old , dark skinned nnd has n stubborn , sullen look. His father and stepmother live about eight miles south of Valparaiso , nnd aio considered re spectable people. Mr Tobiu * was not at the pieliminuiy tiial today. young Tobin originated the plan of robbing the bank , as ho was acquainted with the place and nouilshed a grudge against Mr. Johnson , who ho supposed still owned the bank. Nelson is rather the bright est and most intelligent ono of the tin eo , and appears to realise and feel his position mo to keenly than do the otheis. Mr. Cialg , who has known him for two or three years , savs ho was consldoied of good character. Nelson is about twenty- four vears old. Itubv is n very Illiterate fellow , dirty and slovenly in appearance , and without any up- rmient distinct ideas of right nnd wrong , looking moio like u genuine tramp than n respectable - spectablo farmer. The men do not seem to have wished to imitate Jesse James or anything of that kind , but being in need of money took what they thoucht to bo the quickest w ay to obtain it. The captuio and Jading of this ganc of cilm- inals show that Justice is not so slow if men act quickly and with some de-Unite plan. No attempt was made to lynch Huby last night , as some feared , but a racket was kept up so as to fi inhton him into a full confession , bUt the poor fellow evidently had told all ho knew. Messrs Dean nnd Bnrnot , who captured Tobin and Nelson , reached Gi"enwood nbout 1 o'clock this morning , nnd enlisting the set vices of City Marshal Ciaig , tboy pro em od n carilago and proeecde'd to the farm wheio Nelson lives with a brother , who is married , Arriving at the plnca about : ! o'eloclt , they quietly drove up , and while ono hitched the hordes the others made n searcli for the team nnd buggy , which they soon found put avvav as carefully ns if the owners had Just come homo from a short drive Then while Dean nnd liinlies watched outside Mr. Craig rapped on the door , which was opened by the brother of the robber. Ho was ordered to carry the light nnd guide Mr Craig to the bedroom of voting Nelson , where the latter was found in bed but awake. By his side lay Tobin , nnd without any show of resist ing they prepared to accompany the ollice-rs , after their clothes had been searched , The biothnrand his wife did not seem to bo in the least surmised at the ar rests , not oven inquiring the nntuiooftho charges The ride back to Valparaiso was without trouble. Mr Johnson's wound Is giving him some trouble but ho goes about nnd attends to bis business The bullet grazed n coid In bis neck and the physicians state that hud the ball Rene a sixteenth of an inch to the right II would Imvo ended his life. All agrco thai not ono man rn fifty would have liadtho nerve to stop to the diawor for a re volver as did Mr. Johnson whllo the muzzle of another gun was aimed nt him , and within two feet of his head , by so vltllanous a looking man as Frank Tobin Had John son's weapon been hi order ho would tfuvo bagged the whole gang as they Utterly fell over each other in theii.hasto to get out ol the bank door. Mr. Chambctlam was taken wholly un- aw in es by Huby , who asked him for a loan ol JMOO , and giving bis name. Mr , Chamberlain vvroto down tbo name nnd asked him vv hat se curity ho wanted to give , and when ho looked up hctgazcd Into the um//lo of a 'b- callbio revolver. The only thing Mr. Chamberlain could dovas to drop ott his high stool nnd dodge under the counter , crawl to tbo other cud and reach up to gel his pistol , but ho was to late too use It as the robbers hud fled.

SALT LVKE Cm , UUh , Apiil CS , [ Special Telegram to Tin , Bi.r J The facts of a ter- rlblo piece of business at the county jail leaked out today and the town Is an uproar. On Wednesday morning last the Interior of the Sail Luke county jail was transferred from a bastile , where prisoners are kept , into a branch ot the old Spanish ants do fo with Whltmoro , the Swindled Nophi banker , as chief inquisitor. Not only that , but ho delib erately held up the misoner for $300 , which ho took from him and which amount is now under attachment at Piovo. Prisoner Leon ard was airestod , charged with having plajed the Mexican in the net where Whltmoro , in striving to get $ .500.000 for $0,000 was made a victim. Ho was arrested by Ofllcer Hills of Piovo vvhiloon a train coming to Salt Lake Whitmoio , by the way , was on the train at the time. Leonard is a Jew elry peddler and travels about selling low grade jew elry and watches to farmers. Ho was in Piovo on the da } that Otinker Whit- more played the part of the greedy ruialist and by u singular complication of facts was in the neighborhood ol the pinto where the bloated banner from Nophl paitcd with coed money for some old junk. When the news of the deed reached Provoundit was learned that Wtiitemoio had been played for a ver dant green , the police at onto began to keep a sharp lookout for btiangors. Leonard was watched very closely , and when ho loft the town on the ! IHO : train for Salt Lake City , Hills got on with him. Whitmoio also got on the tialn , but them was no connection be tween them and each was acting independ ently of the other. On the way up , Hills concluded that ho would arrest Lconaid and did so w Ithout any ndv ice or suggestion from Whltmoro Upon his arrival In this city ho ' ( Whltmoro ) became acquainted with'the facts. Notwithstanding the fact that ho had given the officers to understand that the Mexican was n smooth faced man and rather of middle ago , while Leonard was about 00 jeais old and woio a heavy moustache , ho conceived the idea that tno man who had robbed him was before him His choler rose nnd by the aid of copious alee hohc liqulllcatlons with which ho proceeded to soak himself , ho worked himself up to a perfect frctuy. Between the hours of mid- niehtnmiy o'clock Wednesday iroining , In company with Hills nnd Ilurbldiro the night watchman at the Wahsatch building , Whlt moro visited the jail. The objert of the visit was to try and induce Leonard to confess the crime. Thov succeeded but the means used would have dlsgiaced the most bestial nnest that over officiated In the piimv da } s of the inquisition , ho it to ttto i rc-dit of ono of the parti ( Hills ) to say that his manhood prompted him to intcrtoio , and but for the iron ljirs which cnged the prisoners they would have mailo sboit wont of the man that fcrmlttod himself In his soicnes over the result of ills o > vn simplicity to maltreat the helpless being boforu him After pet ting in the jail Whitmoio put thongs of buckskin on the prisoner's thumbs and bv means of an iron bolt twisted them till blood burst , horn under the nails. The ngonUed man shrieked for nelp , and llnallv to save himself confessed and also gave up fcbOO which holmd sowed In the lining of his coat. The district court hero will call the grand Jury together to Investigate the matter.
