Nogales, Aug. 27 (Special dispatch to the Star.) – Collector Hoey was re-arrested this morning on several additional counts. His bond was increased, being raised from one thousand dollars to five thousand.
As appeared in yesterday’s edition, Collector Hoey was arrested by Deputy Marshal Stevens and will get a hearing before a United States commissioner tomorrow. Mr. Hoey has been in telegraph correspondence with Tucson lawyers and it is now understood that he will be defended by Hon. Mark Smith.
Other officials are now being pulled into the scandal. Immigrant Agent Lewis Adams, who is understood to be very close to Collector Hoey, has been summarily ordered to El Paso. It is not known that Adams is under suspicion, but he is down in the black books of the secret service men who worked up the case against Hoey and Jossey.
Many conflicting opinions are held over the death of Jossey, which was a great shock to his many friends here in Nogales. Not a few, think he will be made a scape-goat, being unable to answer charges and assertions.
The town is at present full of customs officers, secret service men, and special agents. Special Agent McEnery, who has taken charge of the custom house is a native of Louisiana, a nephew of United States Senator McEnery, and he has been the customs service since 1885. He is regarded as one of the ablest men in the service.
A deputy attorney general is said to be on his way from Washington to conduct the prosecution.
