Banksfd.Tt-is said thai; the State Fire ^Marshal- and the State's Attorney, in their ' Jons relative to the origin of the fire. had secured evidence which pointed to Walker as guilry. Public sentiment in 'die neighbor- locd appears to be against the idea »hat Walker fired the buildings, bnt .-ather that in some way he was an in- locant victim of circumstances, and oerhaps of the work of another. Walkar himself met a considerable loss of personal property in the buildings, on vhich he is said to have had no insurance. and it seems to be diincult to out how he could have had any encounter.
