Marshall Republican February 3, 1911

ROBBER CAUGHT

A man who first gave his name as Charlie Mathews, and later as Charlie Kenny, was brought to Marshall and put in jail, Wednesday morning, charged with robbery. He was captured by the C & A Detective of Slater and had the goods on him so his only resource was to plead guilty.
A lady saw him, as he took a suitcase, a watch and considerable money from a passenger who was asleep. The preliminary hearing was postponed owing to the absence of the prosecuting attorney. The man has a family in Lawrence, Kansas.

MEN ARRESTED CHARGED WITH HOTEL THEFT

Four Men accused of stealing two pairs of shoes, a pair of trousers and some cuff buttons from Ray Blanchard at the Robinson Hotel yesterday, were arrested in New Franklin last night by Sheriff Fred Brown and Deputy Sheriff Wilson Hall.
The men, who gave their names as George Hill, Glenn Edwards, Charles Scheibel and Charles C Carson, said that they were agents for the Publisher's Promotion Company at St. Louis. They left Columbia at 6 o'clock last night, telling acquaintances that their next stop was Jefferson City. They left behind them a number of receipts from customers, which were found scattered over the room.
On being notified of the theft by Blanchard, Sheriff Brown called the agent at McBaine, who informed him that the four men had bought tickets to New Franklin instead of Jefferson City.
Mr. Brown and Mr. Hall took the 12:25 train for New Franklin, and found the men with the stolen goods in their suitcases. Bringing the prisoners with them, they reached Columbia at 4 o'clock this morning. The agents are now in the county jail awaiting trial.
Ruby Hulen, prosecuting attorney, filed a charge against the four men this morning for petty larceny. The case will be heard before Justice of the Peace John S Bicknell.

SAFE-BLOWER IS CAPTURED

Galena, Ks., Oct 22--- Clarence Cunningham, a negro, was arrested late last night. A complete safe-blowers outfit, including several sticks of dynamite and a pint of nitroglycerine was found on his person.
It is believed that he belongs to a gang of safe-crackers at Joplin, who have been doing considerable work of late. His pal escaped and Cunningham refuses to disclose his identity.

MARTINSBURG BANK ROBBED

Mexico, Mo., Feb 18---Several thousand dollars in Liberty Bonds and $7,000 in War Saving Stamps were taken from the Martinsburg Bank at Martinsburg, Audrain County, between midnight and 5 o'clock this morning.
The robbers tore a hole through a brick wall into the vault. The hole in the rear wall and a crowbar and pick were found this morning by the town marshal. Police of neighboring towns were notified. The roads are in bad condition and it is believed that the robbers could not have gotten far before the discovery.
Martinsburg is a town of 600 people, 14 miles east of Mexico. N. Freidman, president of the bank, and H.B. Sennawall, the cashier, said that they could not place an estimate on the amount of the robbery until an inventory had been taken. The same bank had been robbed about six years ago.
