He claimed to be from Missouri, but admitted that he and another man, who WAS formerly from Allen county, according to his Story, had planned and carried out the robbery and arson. They intended leaving Garfield in different directions and meeting in lola on the twelfth to divide the money and plunder taken from the store This news came yesterday in a letter from Mr. Hanna to his father at Gas City, and local officers were warned to be on the lookout for the pair. The financial loss to Mr. Hanna Is severe as the stock he .carried was worth several times tho amount of In sursnce^e carried. Thus far no arrests have been made here and if the •tory of the prisoner Is true. It Is prob able that tKe "Allen County" confederate has taken fright and made bis escape.
