the Montreal detective force, Thitrs-dr-
The arrests were made on war
rants b-sfuM in Montreal, Chief Wilkie's
men assisting ti". Canadian officers to
make the arrests. The men were hur

the pursuit was abandoned. On return
ing to the city it w as decided to charter
a goeclal train and attempt to head off
tti4 Spray at some point between this
oltv arid Monereal.
The arrest of Greene and Gaynor and
;he manner in which It was accomplish
ed caused considerable excitement in
the city, where both men have become
well known. When the two Americana

hortt with him were six detectives, in-
eluding Chief Carpenter, of Montreal
T'ney were met at the wharf on then

At 1030 a Well-dressed man engaged
a cabman by the Inwir and instructed
him to wait near the votavc. Som
afterwards Burke, with auothei cab. ar
rived. Burke and two other men w.ir
came up, walked toward the Chateau
Krontenac. whl-h is near by In th.
meantime. Mr. (i.'fenc, who had en
tered th" pWfiVe. as wa h'.s daily
custom, came fit of the main door.
Two strangers who ii.vt b-en in waiting
in a store near by. c,(H -- the stre-et

Greene's shoulder, pulled a document
from his pocket and asked him to en

the three detectives and Green entered
the cab and were iirlvi to the wharf,
vciai ti.o pr-rpsr of Grceiift was being
accomplished. Burke and the other de

clerk's desk when they entered. luc
three dolot-tivrs walked up to Gaynor,
one taking hold of his right arm am
the other his left, while Burke produced
a legal paper. Colonel Gstynor asked
permission to get his overcoat, but he
was net permitted to do so and the
four hurried cut to the call and
started for the wharf at a rapid pace.
These proceedings occupied about 20
minutes. The hotel people notified Col
onel Gaynor's counsel of what had oc
curred. The Attorney General's depart
ment and .ludg Cham-fan were notified
and they in turn asked the police to in
vestigate the matter. llfiU' an hour af
ter the departure of the Spray, an
other tug was engaged by Mrs. Gay
nor She went oh board with Detec
tive Walsh. The pursuit of the Sprwv
was given up at Cape Rouge. S miles

almost out of sight down the river.
Upon the return of Mrs. Gaynor to
the city, the lawyers in tiie ease had
a short consultation with her, and
immediately two petitions for ha
beas corpus, ordering the return of
Gaynor and Greene to this city, -..ore
prepared, and two orders were signed
to that effect bv Judge Andrevd, in

from Quebec and just, half way be
