Possibly a Clue.
Dally Guard, Feb. 1.
A letter was received by (leo. Mel
son this morning from Duncan Scott,
in which the state.ncnt is made that
the writer saw a gentleman wearing
long black whiskers at the Sacramento
depot getting on a passenger train, and
that the party spoke to him culling his
name. Scott says he is positive the
gentleman was a Luckey hut as he had
hut slight uciiuaintauco with E. It.,
could not wty whether or not It was
him. Scott was quite ill at the time
with hi gripMi and thought nothing
further of the occurence until ho saw
the telegraphic account of the myster
ious disapjicaraiicc. Mr. Melsou has
written to tlnil out the date and fuller
particulars if obtainable.
It may lie that a clue has liccii found
to Luckey'H whereabouts. Outside of
this information his disappearance is
us complete as if the cartli liud opened
und swallowed him.
