rell. ex-grand treasurer of the grand
lodge of .Masons of Illinois, convicted
at Carliuyille, Friday, of embezzling
the funds of that body, was arrested
hero last night as a fugitive from jus
tice. The arrest was made on the
strength of a telegram from the
SDrinsfficld authorities5. He is under
bail ponding a motion for a new trial
but as two more iudictmenis covering
other than that embodied iu that on
which he was convicted, it was
thought he uieuit to forfeit bail. He
is held pending t he arrival of Spring

Denvkk, Col. March 25. The llcr
rnano peniteut'is a t"ai:; ic religious sect,
cumbering about 2.000 in the territory
of 2s ew Mexico, who bi heve in periodic
al atonement of win by inflicting on the
body agonizing tortures. They inhabit
principally but four counties in the ter
ritory. Great cure is taken to prevent
discovery of their identity by .spectators
and all are masked while conducting the
annual penance. A body of the penants
reside at Los (Jriegos, a iinall Mexican
village near AllK-rpieniue. Friday
morning the cci eniouies were inaugurated
by introducing a procession containing
about thirty men and women. The pro
cession of puriheation by torture began
at 10 o'clock. Five men, naked to the
waist, barefooted and wearing black
hoods to conceal their identity, were
seen to issue from an adobe lodge house
of the sect, led by the master of cere
monies carrying a veritable cat o"-niu
tails. Two huge wooden crosses, weigh
ing two hundred and fifty pounds each,
were placed on the.naked shoulders of
tho two self torturers, the feharp edges
cutting into the naked flesh, causing the
blood to spurt and drop to the ground.
One penitent produced a bharp goad,
which he thrust into the flesh of fellow
sufferers from time to time while the
procession moved up the street, to a wild
gibberish chant in Spanish. Halting
once, the crosses were transferred to
others' shoulders, the . attendants apply
ing the rawhide whips niercilesgy, each
blow taking off the skin and bits of
flesh. The procession took its way to a
gool half mile away. During the march
not a grcan was heard or a word spoken,
but just before reaching the goal, a small
adobe hut the ordeal encountered tried
the nerves of the boldest. For some
distance before the door cactus had been
strewn thickly to the ground, and as th
barefooted cross bearers approached it
one hesitated. In&tantly a half dozen
whips descended oa his bare thoul Jcrs
and with a bound he leaped into the
cacti. His eyery step and that of his
followers was marked with blood. As
the torture crew more terrible the chant
grew louder, and the laches 1V11 with
more vigor. I teaching the door of the
house they were lost sight of. Sentinels
gu.ardiug the entrance and jdy bn keu
whips ana pools, or Ulooa bear witness
to what transpired within. Issuing from
the houe, the p.-OL-essitfn reformed and
turned to the house of worship, and so
the horrifying exercises were continued,
one batch of penitents succeeding anoth
er until night, when a grand procession
and chant wound up the exAreises for tbe
day. During t'uese marches to and from
the house of refuge tho scene at times
was too sickening for description. . Pow
erful men submitted their bodies to be
most mercileesy flogged, until in some
instauci s the bare muscle had been seen
covering every blow. The whole pro-
cce lings were a Ravage attempt to hon
or the master season. Hitherto the men
made no attempt to check tho wild ex
ercises, although one pofiitent, who threw
another hearing a cro into the river
near Kan Juan and drowned hiui, wns
lynched by infuriated witnesses.
