Button Davis, who lives beyond

Tom Spainell, White Man 35 Years of
Age, Taken on a Bench Warrant
Is.ued by Judge Shaw.
Sausbuky, July 13. The first
arrest on tbe charge of participating
in the lynching pf the negro boys,
Harrison and James tiulespie, the
murderers of Miss Cornelia Benson,
took place at 10 o'clock last night
under a bench warrant issued by
Judge Shaw for Tom Sparnell,, a
bar tender of this city. Sparnell is
a married man and is 35 years of
age. When arrested he offered to
give bond, but Sheriff Julian neces
sarily refused to permit him to do
so prior to bis preliminary examina
tion and be was accordingly com
mitted to jail. The examination
will be held by Judge Shaw at 9 o'
clock in the morning, with Solicitor
Hammer also present. Fifteen sub
poenas have been issued for witness
es, including two Bent to Gold Hill,
which was the home of the prisoner
before bis coming here several years
ago. Sparnell claims that he will
be able to prove an unassailable ali
bi. Solicitor Hammer, however, in
the course of the investigation of
the lynching which he has conduct
ed, as required by the act of 1893
for the punishment of lynchers, has
already examined the witnesses who
have been summoned and hence it
may be assumed that he is in pos
session of evidenoe of a direct and
positive character. Neither be nor
