Very possible, remains the fiddle mystery. I can't find any mention of Spencer playing the violin. Maybe a session musician who happened to be around at the time.

Dean:

Re: Jones & Spencer, a 2002 article by Tim Brooks in ARSC Journal writes:

The Spencer brothers were two of the most active figures in early recording history. Harry (Henry) Spencer (1875-1946) is often confused with his older brother Len (1867-1914) on record. Both had deep, resonant baritone voices, although Len, who recorded more widely, had a more florid style of delivery. Harry specialized in spoken word recordings, and was Columbia's regular studio announcer from about 1898 to 1904. His most widely circulated recording was undoubtedly the aforementioned "Arkansaw Traveler," which is often misattributed to Len.

Found a guy on wax cylinder who lists an uncredited George Schweinfest in connection to the recording

Jan Turkenburg:

↳ Dean @10:39
Ah! That's useful info, Dean, thanks! However I think that "The return of the Arkansas traveler" here is a different piece.
  10:47am
Dean:

Here's Paul F. Wells in The Old-Time Herald, Jan. 2015, but no reference to "Return...":

Performances of tune and sketch were a staple of American stage entertainment throughout the second half of the 19th century and on into the 20th. Numerous recordings of it were made prior to the
advent of the hillbilly recording era of the 1920s, by comics Len Spencer and Steve Porter (usually with a violinist such as Charles D'Almaine or George Schweinfest providing the music). And, of course, one of the very first recordings of "authentic" American fiddling was the due rendering of "Arkansas Travler" by Eck Robertson and Henry Gilliland for Victor in June of 1922. Their fine rendition is clear evidence that, in addition to its life in the hands of stage professionals, the "Arkansas Traveler" tune had becomewell ensconced in Southern fiddling tradition by the early 20th century.

How did you end up looking for George Schweinfest, MHLee?

Ah, Dean answered that for you ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51am
Jan Turkenburg:

↳ Dean @10:47
Thanks again, Dean. So if not a different piece, "The Return ... " would be a different recording, or interpretation, referring to an earlier recording, I assume.
  10:54am
Dean:

I missed your airing of "The Return...," and so I couldn't determine whether or not it was the familiar tune. Discogs credits Schweinfest as the violinist on Harry Spencer's recording: https://www.discogs.com/master/1402723-Harry-Spencer-The-Arkansaw-Traveller

MHLee:

@Jan Turkenburg Some guy had uploaded the wax cylinder on youtube and credited him as (uncredited)

Dean:

Schweinfest did play violin: https://adp.library.ucsb.edu/index.php/mastertalent/detail/107919/Schweinfest_George?Matrix_page=100000 ...but this archive doesn't associate him with Jones & Spencer.
  10:58am
MHLee:

@Jan Turkenburg it was the same familiar tune. I think the tune was a favorite of minstrel shows, a "coon tune". Spike Jones does two versions. Jerry Garcia and David Grisham do it. Always with jokes.

Jan Turkenburg:

Ah, I ought to have a closer look into that tune then!

Is this the track you played?

I didn't listen to all of the latter, but the former is racist in the extreme. Comes with the territory, I suppose.
