Officers Casteen and Turner came back from Louisville with Ed. H. Johnson, the noted express robber, he was returned to his cell in the penitentiary at Nashville, Tenn. Johnson formerly had a long beard, but is now clean shaven, and how he was ever recognized is a mystery. While Casteen and Turner were walking along Main Street, in Louisville, they came face to face with John Scott, in charge of a Louisville policeman. Scot was a leader of the great East Nashville burglar band, who was recently convicted of numerous robberies and sent up for 16 years. He escaped from the Coal Creek mines and has since been hiding. He is now charged with robbing 14 houses in Louisville, and has still over 15 years to serve there. He will be sent back to Tennessee.
