IMPORTANT ARRESTS MADE IN THE
VICINITY OF THE WRECK.
The Evidence Points to a Number of
Young Negroes, Who Were Driven
Out of Millen by the Marshal, as
the Villains Who Caused Engineer
The Central railroad authorities have been
making every effort to apprehend and bring
the party or parties to justice who wrecked
the train near Millen Wednesday morning,
which resulted in the untimely death of En
SEVERAL ARRESTS MADE.
There have been several parties arrested,
and the authorities are confident that they
have the right parties. One arrest was made
here yesterday morning. The prisoner was
sent to jail for safe keeping subject to orders
from the train master of the Central road.
A Daily Dispatch reporter learned at
the trail) master s olhce this morning
that as one of the freight trains had got a
short way from Millen Thursday night the
Conductor noticed a negro break the seal on
fine of the cars and go inside. The con
ductor immediately went to the car with a
trainhand and locked the intruder up in the
par without noticing who it was When
the train reached Savannah the conductor
palled Officer price, one of the Central's
polipemen, and had the prisoner taken from
the car and conveyed to the barracks. The
prisoner, J. || Williams, was sent back to
Millen on last night's train.
The railroad authorities think that this
negro knows a great deal about the wreck,
aS it has since been stated that he was seen
by parties near the switch about two hours
before the accident occurred.
At Waynesboro another negro was arrested :

TWO IMPORTANT ARRESTS.
Mr. Abe thance of Perkins junction, where
the wreck occurred, arrested 1 Martin Jones,
aged j!j, who says he is from Savannah, and
Will Griffin, aged 15, an old offender, and
look them so Augusta, where they were
[pcked up at the barracks, with a request from
' Mr Chance that they be separated and not al
lowed to converse with any one.
Mr. Chance refused to talk with any one on
the subject, but says that he feels confident
he has the right parties. He also says that if
he gives out on what clew they are working
that it may make it more difficult to bring
the villians to justice.
Two other negro boys ot the vicinity have
been put under arrest and taken to Augusta
under a strong guard. These boys are older
than lanes and (jri|fin. There are two ntore
Loys beating their way I.ere, and our police
authorities have been notified to keep on the
watch for them.
Recently there has been a larye gang of
these b:.vs hanging around Millan a:;J they

lire Grand Jury.
Last night i errv Holmes was found guilty
of the murder ..t i-e Richardson. The jury
recommended Holmes to the mercy of the
court, which alone saved his neck from the
i.angman s rope. The evidence, most of
which was taken yesterday afternoon, went
to establish Holmes’ guilt beyond a perad
venture. The defense made the plea that
Richardson was killed by the accidental ex
plosion of the pistol in Holmes’ pocket
Holmes’ statement in his own behalf was
a smooth, plausible tale, and while it inter
ested the jury and the audience, the neces-
sary corroboration of facts that had been
placed m evidence was not behind his storv
and it did not go. ? ’
The grand jury returned the following in
dictments yesterday afternoon:
Willis P Pennington, assault with intent
to murder W. A. Baggs; Virginia Riley, as

A LADDER AT THE BARRACKS

There is a ladder, on the style of the rope
ladders used on vessels, at the police bar
racks. It is an amateur contrivance, how
ever, and it does not take long to find it
out, either. The narrow pieces of wood on
the ends and every few feet, intended, no
doubt, for hand holds, were cut with a
hatchet and placed in position without re
tfaru for looks or construction.
There is a good story behind this laddei
and it may come to light at any time. For
some time past complaints have been made to
the police about things being stolen from the
river front, along the wharves and on Bay

diligent look out for all suspicious characters,
