SHERIFF  NEWTON  PLAYS  SLEUTH
--------
          "Billy" Walker, the well known hanger-on at the race track in this city and in other surrounding cities was arrested Tuesday by Sheriff Newton and placed in the county jail charged with assisting  Sullivan  and  Frady  to escape from the jail some weeks ago, the story of which is fresh in the minds of the readers of the Democrat.
          The evidence against Walker is said to be very strong, but on account of the fact that he will be a witness in the case against Walker, Sheriff Newton would not give down the story of the capture of Walker and the clews which led to his arrest.  It suffices to say that the evidence is strong enough to hold him until the next term of the circuit court at which if the evidence is as strong as is thought, he will be given a ride "over the road."
          It is the theory of the officers that Walker tied a saw on the end of a string and the prisoners pulled up the little instrument, a key for their escape from the jail.  The work of Sheriff Newton in capturing Walker is said to be a clever piece of detective ingenuity.
