The report that young Bateman had been arrested on good evidence pointing to him as the assailant and murderer of the two little McLaughlin girls at Flag Springs, proves to be a canard.  He is at large and no suspicion rests upon him.  Suspicions are entertained of several parties, but evidence cannot be brought forward to fasten the guilt upon any one, and the popular conviction is that a tramp committed the outrage.  The country for 20 miles around Flag Springs is aroused, and the search so far has been without results.
