Elliott, rumors reached Charleston that people were gather ing in various neighborhoods about Charleston for the purpose of invad ing that city and taking from the - authotities the Albright brothers. After dark the officers slipped the two outlaws to the railroad station, boarded a freight train and took them to St. Louis, where they are now confined in jail, and will remain until the April term of the Missis sippi county court. Since our last issue we have been able to get more fully the particu lars of the killing of Mr. Elliott. It seems that the Mississippi county authorities were in correspondence with Jim Albright, and that ex-city marshal Elkins called on him a few weeks ago.
