Special despatch to the Boston Globe Brockton december 25�?2.30 a. Bax Eudale matter has assumed a somewhat different aspect Here tonight. The report was circulated that Young Baxendale returned Home on the Midnight train thursday and the Globe representative commenced anew his investigations into an affair which looked As though it might develop something new and unexpected. Interviews were held with two men who saw Young Baxendale on the train and Rode in the same ear with him from Boston. He stated to them that he left new York that afternoon representing lits trip As a business one in the interest of the firm. After leaving Tho cars he was not seen by Bis fellow travellers. Baxendale sr., stated positively that be bad not seen or heard from his son a William since his departure a month ago and that he did not know of his presence Iii town. He said mrs. Baxendale was nearly crazed with grief and anxiety Aud is now under the care of a physician from nervous spasms caused by Reading the uncharitable statements of the associated press papers. This would seem a to show that the entire family were ignorant of Tho matter. Baxendale a younger brother stated this evening however that William was at Nome thursday night that although he did not see him the family did and told him Albert that William came for some of his effects and left after obtaining them saying that lie had the position of head clerk on a Steamer running Between new York and California. This enl lists with the Story of his father and both differ from that told by tile Young Man himself on the cars. Diligent in quirk among the stable keepers and others reveals no knowledge of his manner of leaving town if he left and at this hour 2 a in., no one eau be found to throw and Light on the matter. If be came to the House As told by his brother tile latter must have some reason denying the fact and if lie did not go Home his reasons for returning to town Are certainly mysterious. In the Light of facts gained tonight it is certain that there Are to be More developments in the Case and these will be very Likely to change in great measure the impression which now prevails. If As claimed the firm was entirely solvent last Spring Aud has done a successful business since some one has made Way with at least $17,000, As that is the present excess of the liabilities Over assets. The opinion is gaining ground that business reverses have in great measure contributed to the present wreck assisted probably by the thoughtless if not criminal actions of the Young Man. Feeling that be had lost the respect and Coni Denee of friends it is probable that William Baxendale has now left Brockton never to return though whether he is employed of a Steamer or not is a mystery. _ a so in Bleu bagged.
