    FIVE RUNAWAY BOYS CAPTURED. – On Tuesday we mentioned that eight boys had escaped from the Industrial School. Since that time nothing had been heard from them until yesterday, when the Chief of Police received a dispatch to the effect that some of them were at Benicia. He at once replied, and directed their arrest and return to this city. Last night they were brought down in charge of Constable S. Baker, of Benicia. Their names are Christopher Dunn, Joseph White, Henry Maxwell, Edward Eagle and John Lally. They say that after getting away from the House of Refuge they stole a boat, went across the bay, and walked to Benicia. They will be returned to the House of Refuge today. They refuse to give any intelligence of the other three boys, who are yet at large.
