"WHY THE MILLERS WERE NOT ARRESTED"
Marshall Jacobus says he could not act without warrants"

Marbury & Fox, Attorneys for the British Counsul General, Still feel sore
because Comissioner Shields refused to extradite Mrs. Cornelia V.E. MILLER, and
are now blaming Marshal Jacobus for not arresting her husband. William
Wadsworth MILLER, and her son Willard Yates MILLER, when they arrived in this city on
a french steamer on Oct 23, nearly two weeks after Mrs. MILLER'S arrest.
Mr. Jacobus in some way learned that the two men were coming on the vessel,
and was on hand to meet them when they arrived. They were identified by Deputy
Marshal Bernhaird, who has acquired great skill in recognizing people by
descriptions of them.
F.M. Lincoln and ex- Congressman J.J. Adams, Mrs. Miller's Attorneys, also
met the men on their arrival, and this seems to have given rise to the suspicion
that Marshal Jacobuss arranged a meeting between mother and father and son,
so that Mrs. Miller might turn over to her husband the money in her possession.
The woman is alleged to have brought $137,000 or more of the asseets of J.H.
Field  & Co., the London Bankers, when the firm failed. Her plan was, it is
charged, to place the money in the hands of her husband, he being a member of
the firm, and thus prevent the creditors getting it.
Marshal Jacobus said last night to a Tribune reporter that he did not arrest
the MILLERS because he had no warrant for them. "To have done so,"  he went
on, " would have laid me and my bondsmen open to a suit for damages. I learned
that the MILLERS were to arrive here, and was on hand to see them, so that I
might know them in case they were wanted at any time. I allowed Mrs. MILLER to
meet her husband and son at her sisters house because I placed no restrictions
on her movements, except to have a deputy by her constantly. At that time it
was not known  that Mrs. MIller had any very large sums of money.
I watched the men when they met Mrs. MILLER and for several days afterward,
and when they left the city. so that I could put my hand on them if they were
wanted. The warrants for them were not issued until November  8, about 10 days
after they left NY. I made no secret of having seen the two men and don't
believe that they rec'd any money from MRS. MILLER.
