bid its headquarters in a neighborhood
close te the Maryland line, and constantly
eluded the authorities by skipping from
one state te another, when any of the
mombers were apprehended, their friends
came te their aid with manufactured testi

The law,s delays, Humorous acquittals of
members of this trans, and the continued
depredations by this band or thieves whlle
the cases against thorn were pending, (for
the accused en every occasion succeeded In
getting ball for tilal) caused the peeple of

in connection with Plekerlng's arrest, is

THE nnOULATOHS ACT.
Frank J. Pickering lived with Mrs.
Susan Adams near Kirk's Mill, Lancaster
county, en a farm. His criminal record is
imprisonment rer soverul short terms for
larcenies. Later he devoted himself te
bigger game, and was suspected of steal

weeks age scut a boy named Adams,
seu of the woman with whom he
lived, te West Chester, te sell u stolen
horse. The boy was urrestcd and confessed
that Plckering had sent him te soil the an
imal. A warrant was issued for Pickering
and given te Censtable Jenes, of Little
Britain township, te execute. Pickering
was notified by ene of his confederates that
tlierewas a warrant out rer him, and he
kept out of I he way of the constable.
Petty thelts became very frequent the last
few mouths and twenty et theso who
suffered from the depredations of these
thlevcs met and discussed the situation.
It was decided that the only way te rid the
community eRhe robbers was te burn the
home or Pickering, tlni leader. A row
nights nfler this determination a scere el
twenty masked men ussombled at the
rendezvous agreed upon and marched te
the home of Frank Pickering, Mis.
Adams' house. The spokesman made
known the nature of their errand. Mrs.
Adams begged for meicv, but the regula
tors had iioiie te give. They assisted her in
removing the fm uitiire and then applied
the torch te the heuse and uftei wards
served the barn the same way. Yeung
Plckering was net in the neighborhood
when the property w as destroyed. Thasirst
information he had was given te him In his
cell In the Lancaster county prison en (Sun
day afternoon, by an InTELLiacNCEn re
porter. AIlKESTED BY CHILI- IIOnGEU..
Chief of Police Berger received informa
tion late en .Saturday that Plckering was
iu Lancaster. After consulting the flles of
the Intei.liqenceu for tm account or his
criminal career he tnade complaint bofero
Mayer Clark that Plokeiing was n fugltlve
from justice and u wan ant was issued te
him. Armed with this warrant he went te
the King street station, where Pickering
was. lie had been under the watchful
eyes of Oftlcers Hegennr and Ehler for
half an hour, while the chief was getting
the necessary papers filled out. Clilel'
Borger,iiecempanled by an Iniellieenckii
reporter, walked into the gentlemen's wait
ing room and Pickering was seen in the
coiner seal oil behind the deer, munching
candy. The chief said te him : "Is your
name Plckering?" He said : "Ne, it is net."
The thief next said : "I want you for a little
wbllo,ge along with mo."Pickciingreplied:
"All light" and raised himself from the
beat. IIe said nothing further and accom
panied the chief up West King sticet
Chief Burger was en one side of him, a
policeman en the ether and one In the rear.
A DASU VOU LIBERTY.
When Martin's torner was retched Pick
ering made a dash for libeity and ran
towards the Prince street entrance of the
Stevens house. -TlieuiMiicnt lie ran, this
chief drew ills revolver, ran after him and
called te him te step, or he would sheet.
Pickering learcd the ofllcer would sheet
and dropped te the ground. The street was
wet anil Pickering fell, striking the rear
wheel of a cab iu Irent of the hotel. Bofero
hecuuld'get up the chief and Policcmeii
Killer and Hegener were upon him. He
showed fight and madra despemte rcsist
ance,but was finally overnew ercd j nippers
were put upon lifm and he was lauded
safely in the station house.
A search el his pockets showed him te

two tiirnpilce tickets for the Lancaster pike.
ruVming te Philadelphia, a stable key, and
a copy of Cramp's township and railroad
map of Pennsylvania, showing every read
in the state.
The arrest caused the greatest oxclto exclto oxclte
incut, and all sorts of rumors were en the
town as te the cause of airest. When
Pickering reached the station heuse he was
asked his it.iineuud gau it as Frank J.
Pickering, age 27, and occupation . farmer.
He was placed in it cell until later
in the night when he was taken te
the county jail and delivered te the kecper
by Chief Berger and Sertcant Broeino.
Constable Jenes, of Little Britain, was
notified of the arrest, and a telegram was
also sent te the chief of pnlice of West
Chcster. Te the latter a re-ply was re
ceived stating that there wuie several
charges against him, he should be held,
and that an elllcer would be sent for him
at once. Chief Jelfries, the officer, arrived
in Lancaster en the Fast Line en Sunday.
Picket lug was very anxious that his
folks should be notified of his arrest, and
he dictated n telegram te William Picker
ing, Oxford, his father, notifying him that
he was under arrest, and he should rome
at ence. This telegram was net sent, as
the Chester county ollleeis wanted te
search his heuse without his knew lug that
the seu was arrested.

Pickering was scen in cell 12 in the

WHAT IS KNOWN or I'ICKERtMO.
A gentleman who knows all about Pick
ering had this te say of bltu and his crimes:
He is the son or William Pickering, of Ox
ford, a single man 27 years old. He has
bcen an outlaw for years, and would steal
anything could he lay his handsupen. IIe
travels under tbe alias of Jehn Thompson,
and was discharged from the "Baltimore
jail 18 months age, after serving a term for
stealing feed Irem David Brown, near
Perter's bridge. His chief asseciate In ills
robberies was Frank Creager, with a deren
aliases. Creager was caught a row days
age, and is new In Westmlnster, Md., jail
awaiting the arrival or a West Chester olfl elfl
cer. James Adams, another or the gang, Is
Creager as a mle stele the horses and
Pickering and Adams did the selling. The
gang had a herse station near Kirk's Mills
and anotherat Rowlandsvllle,Cecil county.
Md. At Kirk's Mills their stable Is covered
with n straw stack, with bu openlng large
enough te admit a horse. Thore horses
wero doctored and their color changed
te preveut Identification.
Officer Jeflries says that the posessions of
a read cart led te Pickcrlngbclngsuspected
of numerous thefts. About three weeks
age, whlle driving en the retd iu a cart, a
Mr. Hepkins, who had a cart stelen, saw
his carl in the possession of Mr. Picketing.
IIe halted him and accused him of stealing
n, j.'icKeniig never answered uepKins,
but Jumped out of the cart and ran away,
leaving his team in the lead.
An examination of the team abandoned
by Pickerlnir was nmde and in the cart
wero found two sets of harness which were
identified by J. A. Cresswoll as having
been stelen from him. The cart Mr. Hop Hep
kins took, but an ewner has net yet been
found rer the horse. The animal is de
scribed as a bay inare, H hands high, four
years old, two hind reel white, star in the
Ofllcer Jeffries relates that en one occa
sion Pickering and Ills gang after stealing
a horse wero pursued by the ewner. The
thieves saw thore was danger of belng
caught and te avoid Identification of the
stelen animal they killed the hoi se and
Pickering had it record as a chlckeu thief
and no hen roost in his section or tbe
county was safe. IIe carries a bullet In
him received a low years age in ene of his
chicken stealing expeditious.
Pickering and his gang became very
bold the last year becaitse the constables in
that section or the county wero afraid te
nrrest thorn. Ills father Is supposed te be
implicated in a number of the thefts
charged te him. His heuse at Oxford was
searched te-day for evidences or his and
his seu's guilt. The result of that search
has net yet been learned by our pelice au
thorities. Ttiore is a toward of 23 for the arrest of
Pickering for stealing Mr. Hepkins' cart.
Thore tire ethor rewards otlered for his
arrest for stealing horses, and the au
thorities expect te convict Pickering of
several herse thefts, and if se, it will add
materially te the reward te which Chief
Bergor is entitled for thoarrest.
CONSTABLi: JONES IN TOWN.
Censtable Jenes was iu the city this
morning. IIe knows or many charges
