Peddler Departs in Nick or Time.
Ten minutes ahead of a second warrant
for his arrest, Louis Jones, a negro ped
dler of diamonds, left the city yesterday.

upon the complaint of Lee Foo, who
charged that Jones had attempted to sub
stitute a piece of glass for a diamond

nese. The Imitation was not produced, in
court, it being supposed that Jones threw
it away when arrested, and without it
the evidence against him was not suffi
cient to convict. He waa given an op
portunity to leave town. A few minutes
later J. Himmelfarb, a tailor of North.
Sixth street, appeared to swear to a
complaint, charging Jones with a similar
transaction In which Himmelfarb paid
5S0 for a piece of glass. He described a
negro very much like Jones and officers
were at once sent out to recapture the
man, but failed to find him.
