Jordan; William Martin, the man who claimed the cap that Eider wore at the time he was killed; and William Cummings, the man to whom he said be loaned his cap to on the afternoon before the murder and who must have exchanged it with Eider; are all three penitentiary convicts, and desperate characters. Martin is now in custody.
