Clarke, the man accused of murdering Lawrence Bar in this city on the night of December 30, was frustrated this morning by Deputy Sheriff Tom Foster, who found two small steel saws hidden lu the cells of Clarke and a man named Maxwell. The saws were made from the steels of the men's shoes and were evident- Iv the work of several weeks' work iml planning. The saws were found by Foster after a search of the accus- ed murderer's cell.
