the guards.
Forty men now composing the posse
are conducting what Maloney claims
to be a vigorous search of the Island,
but which nets no results.

bandit serves to keep the scent warm,
but the Indications are that Maloney
Is losing some of the assurance that
the daring bandit is still on McXeil's

ory of watching the island is a correct

jto have reached the mainland long
ago. The Pitts passage is an easy
'swlm, a man can wade most of the

The roads, all the paths and every
available means of escape are being

will break for liberty.
Possemen are ,
certain Gardner at bay, will not hesi

precautions to get the man alive. War
den Maloney Is taking no notice of the
various rumors that the bandit has
been seen on the mainland, adher'ng
to the theory that he has the mall

He claims the state wll show the
strongest evidence in attempting to
prove that Miss Rappe was mortally
injured when the movie comedian.;
abused the young woman. Varied ac

There is adverse effect everywhere
