Handle of "Adam God's" Weapon
Had Been Broken by a Bullet.
Identified by Wife.
More Arrests.

Five revolvers, two rifles and one shotgun, which belonged to the Sharps and Pratts, were taken by police during the fight Tuesday afternoon, and are now at police headquarters. One revolver which was left by James Sharp in the saloon of John Blanchon, had a broken handle.

It looked as if the handle had been broken by a pistol shot. The revolver was shown to Mrs. Melissa Sharp, and she identified it as the one James Sharp owned.

Yesterday morning the police arrested Mrs. J. C. Creighton, Edward Pennell and Mrs. F. T. Dixon, and held them in connection with the shooting. J. C. Creighton had already been arrested, and was being held. Pennell is a son and Mrs. Dixon a daughter of Mrs. Creighton. All of them live in the rear room of the Poor Man's Mission, 309 Main street.

Creighton made a statement to the police yesterday in which he said he saw Sharp arm his followers before they left the mission for the last time. He also said that he heard Sharp say, "Come on, we will shoot the police if they interfere."

He refused to answer Captain Walter Whitsett's question when asked why he did not inform the police of the threats.
