Guards with pistols and a bloodhound, aided by men with rifles from the vicinity, trailed the Negro from the home of George Inman, where the Negro had grabbed some light-colored overalls from the porch. He was trailed on the back side of Lake Logan and up McClure's Creek on the ridges, where the search was dropped about dark without apprehending the man. Many doors were locked up early that night.
