July IS.-- Shortly after 1 o'clbck:,trhls. morning, .oa .Mr, rerdLnaud Rick wa,s returning home from .the Park pa- .vilion ball in company with a young lady, and while nearing the corner of Elm and Ervay streets, a. voice exclaimed; "Throw up your hands," and simultaneously therewith 1 a dusky figure pointed a six-shooter ' at his head. ;Mr. Rick felt it due to h!« fuir companion not to obey the order, and he proceeded to walk . on. He had, hovrcver.^advancecl but a f«\v paces until the command, "Halt," was repeated. Just then two person.; emerged from the dark-ness of the cotter, two gleaming six- shooters were brought down on the highwayman and two voices rang out: "Halt, yourself, and throw up your' hands." .The two last speakers were Policemen IVIullen and Williams, who happened to bo recon- noitedng'for a suspected burglar when 'the highwayman was lying iu wait for Jlr.

Stiiteu Baker is his name, and ho had been employed recently washing carriages at Tom Angus' livery stable, but his name does not appear in the city directory, and vary little outside of unfavorable suspicion is known of his antecedents. His weapon proved to ba a ^caliber six- shooter with a very long barrel and loaded to th« brim. His arrest brought a souse of relief to the minds of thousands who had been reading with horror of the attempts at highway robbery anJ worse by a- negro whom all c-ffosts hud failed to capture, This morning some time beft^re day Muck JMassey (colored) shot and killed Moses Fuqua (colored).
