Wheelehan: 5 5 J. 6 CANOES COMING From Cincinnati to the Crescent Uity By the River Route. BAYOU SARA, Dec. -Special to the Picayune: Com. Geo.

W. Gardner and Secretary W. E. Eckman, of the Cleveland Canoe Club, passed down in their canoes at 8:30 this morning. They left Cincinnati last Thankegiving Day for New Orleans, in their canoes, the City of Cleveland and Cuyanoga.

The canoes are complete in every detail for living and traveling. The have their cooking a camping out tent, and stores packed away in their canoes. One of the boats was built at Racine, and la of veneering, and the other was built at Rahway, N. and is of Spanish and white cedar. They cannot sink, and the hatches are water tight.

They have traveled as the Civil Engineer who Chose Evil Way- Arrest of k. Petter Charge el Chief Row. would Hub take him Traveling Companion, For the past three weeks a very fine looking and stylishly attired young man could have been seen almost dally on Canal street, the boulevard of fashion in the Southern metropolis. The young man was believed by some to be commercial traveler, while others placed him in the category of rich young men. He wore resplendent jewelry, had plenty of money, was elegant in his manners, and was evidently a thoroughly well educated and well informed man.

He boarded at Victor Bere's on Bourbon street, but roomed elsewhere, and to all appearances desired to shun observation and evade inquiries as much as possible. Several days ago it began to be whispered about town that he had not come honestly by money in his possession. He paid his way. however, but it was in gold. sad that of foreign coinage.

Of Spanish doubloons and English sovereigns he appeared to have an unlimited supply, and he did not stint himseir in spending them. He wore an elegant gold watch and chain, and had fine diamonds, or what looked like brilliants. Last Wednesday a theatrical agent mot him on Canal street and recognized him as Edward E. Pettee, a promising young criminal lawyer and civil engineer, who had zone wrong in Boston some time ago, and leaving a young wife, had left for parts unknown. Forgery and embezzlement were the crimes charged to him, and the theatrical agent, who was thoroughly conversant with his career, retailed it to a number of people and it soon became generally known throughout the city, and finally came to the ears of Detectives Gaster and Feathaler.

The officers concluded to keep the man under surveillance. They knew he boarded at Victor's, and Saturday morning they were posted in front of the restaurant on Bourbon street at an early hour. They watebed the face of every man that entered the place, but Pettee's did not meet their gaze. They knew him by the name of Enders, and upon inquiry learned that he had not breakfasted there daring Saturday worning. Believing that their game had become alarmed and had decamped, the detectives abandoned the case for the time being as hopeless.

During the afternoon Gaster determined to resume his post at Victor's and he and Fruthaler posted themselves acoordingly. About balf-past 5 who should come walking leisurely along but Pettee. or Enders, and they permitted him to enter the saloon. Not being cruel enough to interrupt him at his dinner or to spoil his apperite, the detectives waited patiently notil be reappeared and walked up Bourbon towards Canal street. At the corner of Customhouse street Gaster accosted him by name and informed bim that he was wanted at the office of the Chief of Police.

The prisoner was cool and unconcerned, and walked nonchalantly along with the officers. He asked permission to go to his lodging house, No. 269 Camp street, in order to pay his bill. The officers assented, and after paying a week's room rent in advance and teiling the landlady that he would return on Monday, he packed up his valise and accompanied the officers back to the station, where he was locked up. He confeesed to Chief Rowley in the presence of the detectives that he lad detranded Marden, of No.

48 Bowden street, Solomon Billings, on Court street, and F. L. Dunn. on Washington street, all in Boston, and expressed a willingDOES to return without the formalities of a requisition and an officer being sent for to Boston. This was prior to going to his room, and while leaving the ottice he was seen to slip son ething into his shoe.

Gassharp eyes detected the movement, and he remarked that Pettee had better take the package out as he might lose it walking through the streets. Pettee complied with the suggestion, and produced a roll of bills containing $60 which he handed to the detective. On his return to the station the valise was taken from him and deposited for sate keeping. On his person was found the fine gold watch and cliam, $200 in English sovereigns and $70 in United States notes. Spanish dcubloon was also found in his pockets, while in his valise a large sum of money, all in golden Spanish coin, was found.

Re registered himself as E. E. Pettee, aged 27, a civil engineer and lawyer by 00- cupation, and married. A charge of being a fugitive from justice was lodged against him and he was locked up in a cell for the night. Chief Rowley telegraphed to Boston, to Sam.

G. Adame, Superintendent of Police, as follows: "I have under arrest Edward E. Pettee. He confesses having embezzled money from 0. 8.

Marden, 43 Bowden street, Solomon Billings, Court street F. L. Dunn, Washington will return street, and others in your city. He without papers it wanted. Will leave with him if expenses are guaranteed." Pettee hails from Derry, N.

where his parente, who are respectable people, still reside. He fret appeared in Boston about four years ago, where he studied law, and was 8000 master of his chosen profession. He was engaged in several important and remunerative cases. in which he was untformly succeseful. He became acquainted with Marden, proprietor of a summer resort hotel, who placed the utmost confidence in him, and went so far even as to intrast him with the management of the hotel during his abeence.

He entered into a Florida land speculation and fleeced those who placed confidence in him. In New York he is charged with having obtained money on worthless cheek for $400. and his speculatons are said to exceed $3000. It is believed that he is also wanted in Jacksonville, and information of his arrest will be sent there. He went by several assumed names, and is registered at the Central Station as Edward E.

Pettee, alias E. B. Enders, alias E. W. Cunningham.

He is a most accomplished man and an excellent musician, and while the officers were wating for him to pack his valise regaled them with some choice operatic selections on the violin.

These swindlers usually victimize three or more persons every day, and although the detectives have been watching for them, they have not yet been able to catch them. A Highway Victim.
