it Kow Anxionily
The description of the man arrested at
Laredo, Ttx., as Murderer Tascott, tallies
very closely with that of the long missing
assassin. Other evidence tends to show that
the right person has finally been secured.
The method of his capture was somewhat
CniCAGO, August 8. Information jnst
received, lrom Laredo, Tex., gives the de
scription of the Tascott suspect under arrest
there. It tallies more closely with that of
the much sought fugitive than has been the
case in any previous capture! According
to details mentioned at length, the prison
er's appearance corresponds exactly with
the description contained in the reward cir
cular issued by the relatives of Snell, the
millionaire, for whose murder Tascott is
The scars on Tascott's elbows and legs
have counterparts upon the Laredo man,
and though there is no gold in the prison
er's lront teeth, a cavity which had once
heen filled is there. Tne arrest was the out
growth of a singular accident. Night be
fore last, about 8 o'clock, a young man
knocked at the door of Sheriff Sanchez's
residence and asked for supper, which was
provided for him in the hall.
A TECULIAIJ BESEJlBLAXCE.
Mr. Sanchez noticed something peculiar
about his lace which suggested the descrip
tion of Tascott. He went upstairs to get
the description, and while absent the servant
was aked who lived at the house, and when
the man was informed that it was the
SlieriU'he at once departed.
The Sheriff hurriedly took the direction
the young man went, and soon overtook,
bini and engaced in conversation with him,
and became convinced that the man corre
sponded in appearance with the murderer
ol Banker Snell. The man was taken to
the Sheriffs office, where a close examina
tion was made, and the Sheriff was satisfied
that he had the right man and locked
Diflerent names were given by the pris
oner, but he finally settled on that ot A. O
Delphine, of Concordia, Kan., where he
claims to have Deea at work as a fireman on
the night of the murder ot Banker Snell in
Chicago. lie has been loafing around in
Mexico for about two weeks, most of the
time with railroad men, two of whom came
to see him this morning and called him
"Newt," by which name alone he was
known among them.
A FATAL ABBBEVIATIOJf.
There is a fac simile of Tascott's hand
writing attached to the circular referred to,
consisting of four lines of a letter, the first
linereadiDg: "What's the uso of our rush
ing." Sheriff Sanchez copied these words
on a piece ot paper, with the exception that
he wrote them, "What is the use," and
asked his prisoner to copy them.
The fellow did so in a disguised hand and
mechanically wrote the contraction
''What's" as it was in the fac simile writ
ing. He stated positively that he was never
in Chicaco. vet the two men who have been
with him in .New Laredo say- that he has
frequently talked with them "about Chicago

FAE EEOM THE CROWD
Lawyer Marsh Una Secluded Himself to
Complete n. Work on Modern SplrUu
aliim He Will not be Inter
viewed on tbe Matter.
ZSrZCtAL TILZGRAM TO THS StSFATCK.
Middletowh, N. Y., August 8. Law
yer Luther R. Marsh, of the New York bar,
who at one time acquired an unpleasant
notoriety in connection with the fraudulent
practices ot the spook medium, Mme.
Editha Diss Debar, has been a pretty con
stant resident of this town for six months
past, and is here still. Ha is stopping with
John J. Huyler, real estate agent, whose
household includes, beside Mrs. Huyler, a
middleaged MiES Law, who is a recent ac
cession to this community from Borne un
known quarter, and who paints pictures.
Both ladies are reputed among spiritualists
to be gifted mediums.
Mr. Marsh's methods of life here are very
secluded, so much so that he is rarely seen
out of doors, and then only for short walks
for exercise after nightfall, and in unfre
quented 6treets. Ho refuses absolutely to
talk with reporters. The Huyler household
habitually isolates itself from curious
neighbors, and under present circumstances
is rigidly uncommunicative.
Mh Marsh is understood to have secluded
himself among congenial surroundings for
the purpose of giving his whole attention to
the completion of the elaborate work he is
writing on spiritualism. He purposes to
make the work a complete exegesis ot the
theory and practice of spiritual manifesta
tions from a Biblical standpoint He
maintains that the so-called spiritual mani
festations of the day are strictly akin to the
miracles recorded "by the Scriptures, and
are equally well authenticated. Incident
ally, he gives the story of his connection
with Mme. Diss Debar, and insists that she
is a wonderfully gifted medium, whose
ghostly pictures are in the main the gen
uine work of spirit hands; but he admits
that the medium in her normal state is base,
mercenary and wicked.
Mr. Marsh is now engaged in reading the
proof sheets of the closing chapters ot his
book, which is being printed at Buffalo and
will be issued from the press in October.
