Deputy Slieritl'Croner, arrived here
with Hutchinson, the Insane man,
yesterday afternoon, from Wolf Creek.
In arresting the man quite an inter
esting time was hud. The following
arc the particulars:
Mr. ('roller und assistants, Sam
Selirlinpf and Xelf, arrived at the
Hutchinson place lust Saturday at
iiiioii, for tho purpose of arresting a
mail on the charge of insanity. They
found him in his yard in a lighting
mood. Crouer told him his business,
and he resisted by grubbing an ax. The
posse after a hard struggle succeeded
Iu taking the weapon away from him,
but some how he got away from them
again. It was seen that the man was
desH'ratc, and that It was not going
to be an easy task to take him. ('roll
er then drew his pistol and told him
to surrender, but the insane man paid
no attention to him but started to his
cabin to procure his Winchester. It
looked very much if they must shoot
li i m, for if he succeeded In p'tting his
Winchester, they were all liable to lie
killed. Sehrlmpf had a club in his
hand and luckily, just when he was
going Into his house, struck him over
the heud a hard blow which fell him
to the ground. Ho was then ironed
and tied ou a sled and brought seven
miles to a wagon road, when a hack
was procured und he wus brought here.
Dr. Smiley dressed the wound on his
head, and says that he Is not hurt ser
iously. Hutchinson Is considered a danger
ous man on the river, having threaten
ed to kill any officer that ever attempt
ed to arrest lilm, and he evidently was
determined to curry out his threat If
