Arrest of a Murderer.

            On Thursday evening last, Dick Goodall, sheriff of Laclede county, arrested in Rolla a man named Walker B. Rodman, who is charged with having murdered two men in Indiana several years ago. Rodman has been living on Big Piney for the last few years, and now resides on the Dr. Harrisonís place. He was subpoened (sic) as a witness in the Richison incest case which came up yesterday before Esquire Stiff and as he came into town Goodall gobbled him up. He started to St. Louis with him last night to take him to Indiana on a requision (sic) from the governor of that State. Goodall is one of the most sucessful (sic) detectives that we have in this country and we hope ere long to be able chronicle the capture of another person in whose punishment all the people of this section are interested.

A Card from Sheriff Goodall.

            Lebanon , Mo. , April 7, 1878.

Ed. New Era -

            Dear Sir: It having been reported to me that Messrs. W.A. Goodall and Benj. Shattuck of your county, are accused by the friends of Walker B. Rodman, whom I arrested last week charged with the crime of murder in Indiana, of conspiring together in betraying him and causing his arrest. I take this opportunity of stating to all concerned, that neither W.A. Goodall or Benj. Shattuck had anything to do with the detection or apprehension of the accused, but that his arrest was the legitimate result of the charge against him which will follow him until convicted or acquitted.

                        Respectfully,

                        R.P. Goodall, Sheriff.

                        Laclede County , Mo.
