ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS REWARD.
The murderer of our late beloved President, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, is still at large. Fifty thousand dollars reward will be paid by this department for his apprehension, in addition to any reward offered by municipal authorities or State Executives. Twenty-five thousand dollars reward will be paid for the apprehension of G.A. ATZEROT, sometimes called “Port Tobacco,” one of BOOTH’s accomplices. Twenty-five thousand dollars reward will be paid for the apprehension of DAVID C. HAROLD, another of BOOTH’s accomplices. Liberal reward will be paid for any information that shall conduce to the arrest of either of the above-named criminals of their accomplices. All persons harboring or secreting the said persons, or either of them, or aiding or assisting their concealment or escape, will be treated as accomplices in the murder of the President and the attempted assassination of the Secretary of State, and shall be subject to trial before a military commission, and the punishment of death.
Let the stain of innocent blood be removed from the land by the arrest and punishment of the murderers.
All good citizens are exhorted to aid public justice on this occasion. Every man should consider his own conscience charged with this solemn duty, and rest neither night nor day until it be accomplished.
