a search of several minutes the fugitive was discovered, and ordered to surrender, the demand being backed by several muskets pointed in the direction of his person. He acceded to the request, first remarking that had he not have dropped his pistol he could not have been taken alive. Being properly secured he was carried to the city jail, where no doubt efforts properly directed will restrain his future wandering propensities. As the members of company B, Only Battalion, were on guard at the jail the day Elam escaped, and got all the blame for permitting it by negligence, it is not only proper, but right, that they should have the credit of arresting him. It will be remembered that Elam's alleged accomplice, Louis Hapelson, was tried and hung. The chief witness against the prisoner (a loose female, known as Charlotte Gilman) was kept for many months in Castle Thunder in order to procure her attendance on the trial, but on the exit of Elam from the city jail she was turned loose.
