Taney County Republican February 19, 1903 Pg 2

RUNAWAY BOY CAUGHT

Claude Richmond, a boy of 11 years, whose home is at Paris, was taken in charge by the authorities at Ironton, and his father, Rev. C.F. Richmond, was notified.
When arrested he carried a .22 caliber target rifle, a .41 caliber bulldog pistol, a copy of the Life of Jesse James, a book of Harry Tracy's adventures, and some other trashy literature. He told a reporter that he was going to join the Union bank robbers.

MAY DRAWS THE COLOR LINE

Charles May, a double murderer who is doomed to die on March 6, has notified Sheriff Spencer, of Buchanan county, that he seriously objects to being hanged on the same scaffold and with the same rope as used in the execution of James Pollard, a negro, who was confined in jail with May in 1897.
They quarreled in prison and became mortal enemies.
Sheriff Spencer refused to comply with the request for a brand new gallows, and May retorted: " I'm ready to die, all right enough, but a white man is a white man, and a n***** is a n*****, and Missouri is too far south for a sheriff to lose sight of that fact. I most emphatically protest against being hanged on the same gallows and with the same rope by which a damned n***** came to his end. I didn't think you was color blind Mr. Spencer."

SAYS HE FOUGHT A BURGLAR

Dr. C.W. Ayres, an optician with Rhodes Bros., at 919 Walnut street, claims to have had an exciting encounter with a burglar on the morning of the 24th in his rooms at 1000 McGee street.
From his story it appears he was awakened by the presence of the burglar, and in the struggle that followed he was cut four times. All the wounds were superficial and were on his arms. The case was not reported to the police.

DEFRAUDED A LITTLE GIRL

Deputy United States Marshal Morrison went to Braymer, Tuesday, and brought back Elmer James, who one day last week passed a $10 confederate bill on a 12-year-old girl named Maud Methens, at Chillicothe. James was given a preliminary hearing before Commissioner Nuckols yesterday morning.
The facts were elicited that the little girl had been left in charge of a restaurant, when the prisoner stepped in and purchased a cigar, tendering in payment the worthless note.
After receiving his change in good coin of the realm, James went to the depot to leave town, but was overtaken by the girl who had given him the change, and her older sister, just as a train pulled out. The girls held him until the city marshal of Chillicothe arrived, and the officer compelled James to refund his ill-gotten gains.
The Livingston county authorities decided they could not hold James for the offense, but notified the federal authorities at Braymer in Caldwell county.
James was held to await the action of the grand jury and in default of $500 bail was placed in jail.

THEY READ TRASHY NOVELS

After being out three hours, the jury in the case of Allan O'Rear, who, with five other boys, is charged with the murder of Edward C Chapman, the station agent at Brown's station in Boone county, returned a verdict of murder in the second degree, at Columbia, and assessed the punishment at ten years in the penitentiary.
O'Rear is the first of the defendants to be tried, the trials of the other five having been continued until March 24.
Chapman was shot and killed, on the night of September 28, 1902, and it is alleged that the tragedy was the culmination of a series of persecutions inflicted against him by O'Rear and his companions, who called their band " The Bloody Nine," and who were influenced by the reading of trashy novels.
