Deputy Sheriff Kelsey and Offlcers Isbeli and Armbrnster took the case in hand and quietly worked it np. Anaong the things taken was an overcoat of Panl Moses, a student roomiug in Mrs. Stafford's house. Yesterday morning Schnetter was seen on the street weariug a good overcoat. It was identified by Mr. Moses and Schnetter was arrested. A searcli warrant was issued and a large amount of stuff was recovered se eb as silk dresses, skirts, lace curtains, sbawls, etc. It was largely dainaged by the treatment it had received. A fine shawl had been used as a table cover. Holes had beeu bnriied in it aud it was coveied with grease spots. Schnetter is an old ofteuder having served in Jackson aud on Dec. 81, fluished 05 days iu the county jail. He seems to take his arrest very stoically aud says nothiug. Sheriff Gillen and the officers are niaking a record for themselves in the way they are detecting crime. Evildoers in the city had better movo away if they do not wish to get iuto the clutehes of the law.
