For Kent. . FourlMwrn cottage on Clement Place. Inquire of K. A. Clement, 720 Grove pyeet two Prominent CltltiHI ot Alton Mid tpp*r Alton •hdrt ArMSt. Chftrg«d Witk fielnf with tbe in vincible 'ilileVM. Quite ti sensation was caused on the streets this morning *b*n it was learned that Sheriff Hot/, and Deputy Brelsoerner had arrested John Boals, one of the most prominent men In Alton, on «, charge of being Implicated in tbe "Invincible Thief" conspiracy in the American Bottom, which has created such terror In that part of the county. The Sheriff and his deputy called at the residence of Mr. Boals on Sixth and Alby streets this morning tit 1:80 o'clock and notified htm of his arrest. Mr. Boals appeared at first to take the matter as a joke, until he law that the officers were in earnest, They took charge of Mr. Boats and 11:10 he was taken to ttdwardiville by Deputies Drelsoerner and Hunt. Wnen the train reached the Upper Alton station Sheriff Hole got aboard, having as a prisoner the well known attorney, W. L. Falrman, of Upper Alton, under a similar charge to that preferred against Mr. Boals, Mr. Boals stoutly protested his in- noeence in the matter; that he knew nothing whatever of the "Invincible Thief "business, and was able to prove Ills innocence; Mr. Falrman, while admitting that he had met Gregory, the head of Uie invlnctbles, said It was only In the capacity of an attorney. Sheriff HoU admitted that he had under arrest and In jail, Nick Gregory, the ex-postmaster of Oldenburg, and Jos. Goudle, and report Bays another man named Joe Stumpstick. The sheriff admitted that he thought Gou- dle was probably Innocent. Gregory, the saloon keeper and ex- Postmaster, Is the Informant In tho matter, and has been in jail since last Monday night. Sheriff HoU when approached this morning, early, denied he arrested anyone in Alton, but when confronted with the details by a TELEGRAPH reporter admitted that he had arrested Mr. Boals and would arrest another man, but declined to give his name, telling the reporter that If he would go with him to Edwardsvllle he would give him full nartlculars. Gregory was frightened into giving up the story when he discovered Chief of Police Volbracht of this city down in the bottom, interested in discovering the guilty parties and gave the names of the men arrested. He claimed that the whole matter was a joke, and not Intended to rob anyo.no. It would also appear that the bomb found under the Henry house at East Alton was also a joke and was perpetrated by one of Bast Alton's most prominent citizens. However there was no joke in it for the badly frightened residents of that part of the county. Edwardsville, February, 0, 3 p. m. Owing to the : absence of 'Squire Barraclough before whom the examination of Messrs Baals and Fairman was to have taken place, and the absence of States'' Attorney Brown, an examination could not be had. The prisoners demanded an Immediate trial which (the Sheriff .was 'compelled to decline. The sheriff claims that both Boals and Fairman were at Gregory's place on the 4th of January about the'time the letters were given- out. One of these letters was left on Huebner's place, and the other letter was placed in Shilllnger's yard by Goudle. Messrs. Boals and Fairman will be held by the sheriff until a bond can be made out and wilt then be released. 4:15—Gregory turned State's evidence. He says that himself, Boa's and Falrman met at Gregory's place on the night of Thursday, Jan 10th, and fixed thejmatter, upand issued anjj other throating letter, stating that the right man had not been arreslod and if the threatened raon iid"~not put the money In the place called for they would dynamite the homes ;and raise a dreadful oomotlon* The two St. L,ouls detectives were heard, and Sheriff Hot/., determined to hold Boals and Falrman. The former was placed in asecond story cell while Fatrman »vas placed in a cell with Brer Fox They were required to change their clothes. Fairman r,vised a storm about it, but finally ojoled down and both then took the matter philosophically, Fairman call ing for tobucco and cigarette paper Paul BrtiPlii and Toll!

Hotz was In Alton today working on the ''Invincible Thieves" case and he stated to a s,E»RAi'H representative that the results of the scare have been very serious in the case of Mrs. George Schllllnger. Mrs. Schllllnger is confined to her home near Oldenburg with nervous prostration and the members of her family are said to be much alarmed at her condition. Before the springing of the scare by the band of men who styled themselves "Invincible Thieves," Mrs. Schillinger was a robust woman and in good health. Sheriff Hot* said that she has since been so worried over the threats made against the life of her husband and threatened destruction of the property that she has become prostrated. Anxiety lias made her condition pitiable and her friends fear the worst. For this reason the efforts of the officers to capture the offenders within the past week have been Increased.
