IS IN THE TOILS AGAIN. Keinia, the Jail Breaker, is .Caught at Cedar Rapids After .touch Shrewd Work. *- Some Shooting Was Done, But He Was Finally Landed Behind the Bars at Anamosa. Kennu is again at Anamosa. He was caught at Cedar Rapids while on a visit to his wife. After he was taken Sheriff Graham was notified and had the pleasure of returning him to prison. The Cedar Rapids Republican tells the story, which is quite thrilling: Thos. Kenna, who was sent to the Anamosa penitentiary for three years from Kossuth county in the March term of court for burglary, and who was taken back to that county to appear as a witness in a trial, escaped from the jail there and has since been at large. He was captured in this city yesterday afternoon. Deputy Sheriff Tom Brown has been looking for him since his escape, and learning Thursday night that Kenna was in the city, procured the assistance of the city police, and instituted a search for him. Kenna's wife lives in this city with her mother and he came here for the purpose of procuring assistance to aid him in escaping. He made an appointment to meet his wife near the lime kilns at Otis on the Northwestern. This he was prevented from doing by information received from accomplices that the officers were after him, and he went down the river on the Burlington side, and attempted to swim across, which he failed to do One of his accomplices, Paddy Ryan, was secured and the plans of Kenmi extorted from him, which were to have his wife go across the river on the Northwestern cut-off on tho Burlington tracks. Kenna became alarmed and returned to this city and went to the house of his brother-in-law, whose name is Morgan, and who lives on Fifth avenue and Tenth street west. The officers after scouring the country in the vicinity of Prairie Creek, where he had intended to meet his wife traced him back to the city and finally to the house of Morgan. About 5 o'clock Deputy Sheriff Brown, accompanied by Constable Patterson and Patrolmen McGuire and Kroulik, went to the house, and entering, found Kenna in bed between two matresses, and effected his capture. Kenna is regarded 93 a dangerous man and the officers had to be cautious in their pursuit. Kenna's accomplice Ryan says they came to Cedar Rapids in a boat down the river from Waterloo. Deputy Marshal Cleary in returning from Prairie Creek, where he had been on the watch, was shot at while starting to cross the Burlington railroad bridge near the packing house. The shot was fired from the watchman's tower near the end of the bridge and narrowly missed the officer, as it struck the bridge close to where he was when it was fired. The man who fired it then jumped out the window and disappeared. No clue as to who he is has yet been found. Mr. Cleary had nothing with him but a shot gun, having given his revolver to a friend living near Prairie Creek, who had no protection against Kenna and his accomplices. In its Sunday issue it says: Thos. Kenna, the escaped fugitive convict from Anamosa, was taken to Marion to await the coming of the sheriff of Kos- 8uth county. It seems that Kenna escaped from jail at Algona and after his arrival at Auamosa concocted the scheme of charging the marshal with aiding him in his escape. He was taken there as a witness and broke jail the second time. press trains, with magnificent through- car service of modern day coaches, sleeping cars, parlor cars, and dining cars.

A recitation by Comrade Brace's little daughter, and an address by Harvey Ingham, with music, and a benediction by Rev. Bagnell completed the programme. The parade to the cemetery formed at 1:30 in front of memorial hall with the band, Company F in dress uniform, the woman's relief corps, the band of girls with flowers, the members of the grand army, and people in carriages, and marched through State street to the diagonal, and so to the cemetery, where the hollow square was formed about the soldiers' lot, and where the brief exercises were held. These consisted of calling the roll of the buried comrades after the bands of girls had decorated the graves, giving flowers in honor of the distant dead, prayer by Chaplain Lamson, and benediction by Rev. Dorward. A salute was fired by a squad of Company F, and the crowds dispersed in good season to return to their homes. It is estimated by many that the procession was the longest and the crowd the largest that has yet gathered at a memorial service in Algona, and the citizens of Kossuth have always observed this better than any of our national holidays. The old soldiers may well feel proud of the enthusiasm and unanimity with which the people turned out to pay the meed of praise to their dead comrades, and do honor to the living. The Blue and Gray, Taps I ' And the lights are out! The dead are sleeping on the hills, And In the vales they sleep And wait the reveille That wakes no more to war But to eternal peace I Upon this grave the miles and On that the roses fade: And fading there, they to the Fade.ess pay the homage of A nation's sorrow and its love!
