Murderer Caught.
Enos Hutchins, Colored Who Killed Will Haney, Overtaken.

Sheriff T. W. Tinsley secured the person of Enos Hutchins, the negro who killed Will Haney at Guytons, some two weeks ago, at Frog Mountain, in Alabama last Monday.  The negro is now in jail.

Hutchins skipped out as soon as the deed was done, but as accurate descriptions were sent over the country, officers and others were on the lookout and last week the foreman of a working squad notified Mr. Tinsley that he believed he had his man spotted.  The arrest soon after followed.

A rather strange fact is that the negro, after he had fled the scene of the killing assumed the name of George Tolbert, and was under that name when arrested.   Mr. Tolbert is the husband of the lady who was the victim of the attack of a negro at Fairmount.  The occurrence was about the same time as that of the killing of Haney by Hutchins.  The negro, in his haste, must have concluded this would be a good name to assume in his flight, hearing it called in connection with the other occurrence.
