"'HAD MANY ADVENTURES.: Capture of the Men Who Victimized Ex-Mayor Fitter's Brother." Philadelphia, October 26. – Detectives Miller and Tate have arrived with the embezzlers and forgers, Henry McGlathery [Harry William McGlathery] and Charles Case, who got away with $5,000 belonging to Conveyancer Alfred Filler, brother of the ex-mayor. The fellows were caught at Kennebago Camp, in Maine, where they wandered after their flight from Philadelphia on October 3. They were playing high-toned roles as hunters. McGlathery had $3,790 of the stolen money, and both wore diamonds, gold watches and other fineries. They had purchased a complete hunting outfit, and both were armed with rifles, revolvers and bowie knives.

During their adventures in Maine[,] the fugitives met two sons of Claus Spreckles, the sugar king, passed over the Canadian line, lost themselves for days in the Maine forests, and imagined that they were entirely secure. When the detectives nabbed them they confessed everything. The three women who went as far as Boston with the men were a daughter of a dead Boston minister named Coyle [Thomas E Coyle], and her mother [Mrs. Abbie A Pratt Coyle] and Ella Walters, of West Chester. The women divulged the secret of the direction the fugitives took. The Coyle woman [Mary A Coyle] was married to McGlathery before the flight, but McGlathery was so drunk at the time that he does not remember the ceremony, although he admits they were married. In their written confession the men attribute their downfall to Gloucester, wine and women."
