A Tramp Arrested for Vagrancy is Found to
Sulphur Springs Ark. March 3. Yes-
terday evening Ciiy Marshal Qreggarrested
a man who gave his name as J . R. Gibson
charging him with vagrancy. He had
bothered the citizens no little with his tale
of hunger and poverty. The prisoner's
pockets contained $100 in cash two certill
cates of deposit one for $100 and the otbei
the former f om a Dallas bank and the
litter from Denison. Besides these a fin?
watch and eight fine gold rings were found
in his possession.
The valuables were taken charge of by
the officers to await the action of the court.
The accused was lined 10. Tne prisoner
then demanded the return of his property
which was granted. After placing thein
in the bottom of his pocKeis he asked tlx
court if it was possible for him to work out
the fine on the streeis. Un bein assure' I
of the affirmative he jumped for joy. He
said limes were so hard and money so
scaice that he had much rather put in
twenty days on the streets at fifty cents per
day i ban to pay out his poor earnings. The
oliicers wired the bank at Deni-on to set
if Gibson had more on deposit thare. The
answer came that he had the amount the
certificate called for.

Polletz's Confession Not Necessary to Convict
the Gang Now la Jail.
New Orleans La. March 3. On the
streets and in the clubs thechier topic dis
cussed last evening and today waj Polietz's
confession in the Hennesiy cae. As
Polietz's statement was made in chambers
it wasgnen to the public. The evident
belief among the state's attorneys was Ihi t
Polietz had not toid the whole story; that
he Allows all about the conspiracy;
that be attended the meetings and
that he received a portion of th
$in00 alleged to have been paid to
the men who did the shooting. The nro-
ecution is evidently quite certain they have
ull the active conspirators except the man
who returned to Italy and it is undersiood
ihey know where he is located. While
Polie'z's statement crpated a great sensa-
tion it can have but little bearing on the
case as the prosecution appears to have all
the testimony neces-ary to convict the
entire gang of conspirators and asassins.
in lar.t the testimony already given ias
been so clear as to scarcely leave a doubt
concerning their guilt.
