Chariton Courier February 29, 1884 Pg3

For some time past, the store of John Saunders, at Dalton, has been burglarized of numerous small articles, but until recently all efforts to catch the burglar have been fruitless.
On last Monday night the store was again entered, and several small articles stolen. On the following day John Eidson, a son of Julius Eidson, was found in possession of some goods, which Mr. Saunders claimed that he could identify.
A warrant was sworn out for Eidson's arrest, and he was arraigned before Squire Carson on last Thursday. At the preliminary trial the goods were identified and Eidson is now incarcerated in the county jail at this place to await the action of the grand jury. He is generally considered a "brick," and has looked through the bars of our county jail from the inside before.

A gang of robbers who for five years past have infested the wide bottoms of the St. Francis and Arkansas rivers, were heard from once more Oct. 3rd.
John Diamond, a sturdy Irishman, was murdered by them and robbed of $50. He had been employed as a track walker for the Memphis & Little Rock Railroad.
At the time of his murder, he was walking the trestle at the 28 mile post. After being shot he fell to the ground below, one bullet entered his back and came out below his chin. He was then shot in the face with a shotgun.
He is the fourth man murdered for plunder at this spot in a short period. Maholey, also a track walker, was murdered and robbed of $5 and then thrown on the track to make it look like he was killed by a train. The second man was Connel, whose body was riddled with bullets and thrown on the track. He was robbed of $300. The first in this series of dreadful murders, was Jones, a negro, who was shot down and robbed of $150.

ONLY WANTED CASH

The iron safe in the office of J.H. Gregg, grain merchant, in the board of trade building, St. Joseph, was opened by burglars a few nights ago and a few dollars taken. Notes aggregating $7,000 and other papers were carefully replaced. The crook experts toyed with the lock of the safe until they got the combination. The opinion prevails that they were Chicago or St. Louis crooks.
