FOOTPAD LEAVES VICTIMS CAR FARE

Attorney and Mrs. Charles T Noland were victims of a lone highwayman, who held them up at the point of a revolver and robbed Mr. Noland of jewelry valued at $1,000, on Catalpa avenue, near the Suburban tracks, at 8 o'clock last night.
After taking everything of value on mr. Noland's person, including $4.50 in cash, Mrs. Noland pleaded with the footpad to give to herself and her husband enough money to pay their car fare home. The robber answered Mrs. Noland's supplications by leaving a nickel in her husband's vest pocket.
After securing his booty the footpad backed to the corner, keeping his revolver pointed at his victims, who stood with their hands above their heads. Gaining the suburban tracks, the robber ran west and was soon lost to sight.

FIRED ON THREE BURGLARS, SHOT ONE

Charles Breste of No. 2503 Texas avenue reported to the police yesterday that three men entered the stable in the rear of his home early Monday morning and stole a set of buggy harness.
He detected them in the act of leaving the premises and fired several shots from a revolver at them. One of the men fell, as if wounded, and his companions picked him up and carried him away with them. Police found blood spots on the sidewalk near Breste's home, but have not discovered the identity of the burglars. It is thought that the man who was wounded was seriously shot.

CRUELLY TREATED BY ROBBERS

St. Joseph, Mo., -- Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Lilliger and their son, Joseph Lilliger Jr., who reside two miles north of St. Joseph, were beaten into insensibility by three masked robbers early Sunday morning and thrown into the basement of their residence and locked in.
The robbers then ransacked the house in the hope of finding a large sum of money which they believed to have been concealed upon the premises. Joseph Lilliger Sr., who is 72 years old and wealthy, was tortured unmercifully by the gang in efforts to compel him to divulge the supposed hiding place of his wealth. He insisted that he had no money on the premises, that all of it was in a bank in St. Joseph, but the robbers never let up in their maltreatment until the aged man was unconscious. His condition in critical, and attending physicians say that his death may result at any moment. Mrs. Lilliger and her son, although frightfully disfigured from their punishment, will recover.





Donald Ray Busby killed his friend Harry Shell and then himself in 1957.

TEN YEARS FOR TRAIN ROBBERY

St. Joseph, mo., Oct 27-- In the criminal court today Herbert Donovan, Alonzo Arterburn, Charles Cook, James Hathaway and William Hathaway were sentenced to the penitentiary for ten years for robbing a Burlington passenger train near St. Joseph on the evening of August 11.
The robbers are mere boys and of good families. On this account the railroad and express officials consented to the minimum sentence upon their plea of guilty. The robbery was successfully executed, but no booty was secured. After throwing the safe, containing a large amount of money, from the train, the boys became frightened and ran away without opening it. They proceeded to their homes in this city and the next day James Hathaway made a confession and all were arrested.

SALOON MAN MURDERED

St. Joseph, Mo.,---John Seyfried, proprietor of one of the best saloons in the business section, was murdered by a lone robber at an early hour Monday morning, presumably when he attempted to close his place of business. His head was beaten terribly, but he was not found until his wife became anxious toward morning and went to the place.
Seyfried was still conscious, but died at 10 o'clock. His skull was fractured as a result of heavy blows struck by a hammer. It is believed that the murderer secured between $500 and $600.
A note was found in the place intended to show that the act was one of revenge, but police believe this was done to throw off suspicion.




Claud Estes, 19, was paid $25 to murder Alfred Lutman on June 14, 1922
