Two Swedes Employed by Abbott Arrested Arrested as Suspects. He found out very quickly that the only two suspects were Oscar Dahlgren, a Swede, aged 28 years, of 178 Fulton slreet, and Charles Victor Johnson, another Swede, aged 2o years, of 239 Pearl streel. Both of the men had been employed by Abbott as sorters, and Johnson's reputation, according according to the Information that came to the policeman, was unfavorable. He found that Dahlgren was very drunk, so tipsy, Indeed, that he could not tell a coherent, story of his doings in the last two days. Johnson was also under the Influence of liquor, but he. was not by any means so bad as Dahl gren. The officer learned that the alarm of fire had first been given by a little Italian lad, Raffaello Beneditto by name, who had gone Into the alley to sell Mr. Abbott some Junk that he had collected during the early morn ing. He had been at the closed gale to the place and had been unable to enter. Then he saw smoke coming from the building and he had told Johnson and Dahlgren, Vho were lounging near by and who were known to the boy as having been employed by Ab bott, about the fire. He asked them to run and give an alarm, and It was they who re ported the lire at tbe engine house, half i block away. Policeman Mcuulre waa preparing to place Ihe three under custody when the two detectives from headquarters came, and with them Captain Harklns, Sergeant Mo-Corlhy, Mo-Corlhy, Mo-Corlhy, the detectives from the Adams streel station nud other policemen. With Ihe sanction cf his captain, MeGuire arrested Johnson, Dahlgren and the boy. The latter latter hnd clearly nothing at all to do with tho murder, but he was held as a matter of safety, for be would prove, the police thought, lo be a valuable wlineas. Dahlgren was anslous to Incriminate Johnson when he got to the station. He told a doien rambling aud drunken atoriea abotn Johnaon't hatred of the grim old Juuk- Juuk- mnn. And he said, too, that Johnson has been crazy to get aome money: that he had tried to boirow 1 10 from him (Dahlgren) on HatuM.iy, and finally sold Dahlgren his shoes for 11, In order to get enough to buy whisky, lie also said lhat Johnson bad threatened Abbott's life for being an old squeeze, and hnd more than once spoken nf his miserly habits. Another thing Dahlgren said was that Johnson had purchased a black Jack for 'i cenls on Saturday, after he had got the dollar On Prisoner, Incriminated by the Other, Hake a Denial. There waa nothing coherent or tangible In ell that Dahlgren aald, and Johnson, no waa soberer aim much more alert to the a'luatlon, waa questioned by Captain ll.irklna. Ilia story was to the effect that he knew nothing about Ihe matter until tbe Italian b had lold him that the place waa on fire, lie waa amaietl, or may have pre, tended lo be aiuazrd, when told that Abbott bd the carpenter were dead and thai Dahl gren was aaylng that he bad hand la toe nierder.
