As starry banuers were raised aloft bands of the forts nd on the flag- ships played tile "Star Spangled Bau- her," and the shores rang with pa- triotic cheers. Things Went Smoothly. There was very little friction in car- rying out tile prorramme and no more delay than was to be expected. The citizens' committee left the foot of Cortlandt street on the steamer Glen Island and proceeded down the bay fol. lowed by a long retinue of all sorts and description re; craft.

The officers put bloodhounds on the murderer's trail and they fol- lowed it to the house of a farmer named Tom Garner. a neighbor of the Causeys. Garner was arrested and taken to Mag- nolia jail to prevent a threatened lynch- ing. Bad blood has existed between the Causey and Garner families for some time. Terrorizing a 'ituess.
