June six hours after the sensational shooting of Chief of Police, Red Deer, Thursday night, the Boy Scouts of town rounded up Arthur Francis Kelly, and the police think they have their man. The find- ing of a-black leather mask with un- evenly cut eye-holes by Constable Me- Farlane and Scout Master Gibson, is thought to complete the last link in the chain of.evidence. The Chief of Police lies at the point of death in the hospital but he gave evidence yesterday afternoon against Kelly; the bedroom being transformed into a temporary court- room with Kelly in irons under ..a very strong guard, at the bedside. The capture of Kelly was sensation- al. Early in the morning the town was roused and organized posses were sent out to scour the country. The Boy Scouts, accompanied by a dog traversed the country toward Sas- katoon Park and north, where there is dense underbruesh. About a mile and a half from the city tbe dog came upon a man sleeping soundly in the- underbrush and gave an alarm to the. boys. The boys under Scouts H. Gal- ibraith. Sherringbett and Stone, prompt; ly drew.a.cordon around the patch and sent two of'their number running towards .town for assistance. 1. By means of the a message was-flashed to Scouts hear- er, the city and-the messengers reach- ed the-.station just as another posse was. starting out and climbed into-a waiting automobile. In the meantime, Kelly roused from his sleep threaten- ed the Scouts with his 32 calibre re- volver. The boys took refuge behind tres and trailed him from one patch of brush to another. Several times Kelly threatened to shoot but one-of tbe boys Mott knew hint -as he had been getting his meals M'Ott home. Kelly says he "did not like to shoot the kid."
