St. Louis Republic April 27, 1900

BLACK TRAIN ROBBER

Little Rock, Ark., Apr. 27.--A southbound St. Louis-Iron Mountain and Southern passenger train was held up by a negro bandit near Higginsville, 50 miles north of Little Rock at 1 o'clock this morning. The negro had no visible confederates, and confined his operations to one passenger coach, compelling the passengers to hand over their valuables at the point of a pistol. The bandit escaped, but the sheriff of White County started in pursuit at once and probably will overtake the fugitive.

The other day I was at the Arvest Bank in Branson West and there, on a stand is a credit card display encouraging locals to sign up for a debit card with the high school football team mascot. The name on the large credit card mock up was B. Parker.

I commented to the 20-something teller that the name must be making reference to Bonnie Parker of Bonnie and Clyde. *crickets* she looked at me like I had been talking Swahili. "You know Bonnie and Clyde have a connection with Reeds Spring" *crickets*.

(Earth to bank teller, do you copy?)

Have a nice day. S m h

That's one reason why I don't post on the True Crime forum, too many young uns. That, and they are mostly interested in kidnappings and murders, never see anyone post about heists on there. I thought about asking some questions about the "Hole in the Ground Gang" but figured I would get crickets too.

BOND ROBBERS CAPTURED

James O'Brien, alias Red O'Brien, and Jake Weber, alias Dutch Jake, charged with robbing the State Bank at Savannah on the night of February 7, have been captured by the Pinkertons in British Columbia.
None of the 1,000 bonds was found with them. William Loughridge, another of the men who was arrested on the same charge in San Francisco some time ago, is confined in jail at Savannah. Mrs. Breckenridge has, so far, recovered 8 of her stolen bonds.

San Francisco Call May 8, 1897

FIENDISH CRIME OF FOOTPADS

St. Louis, Mo., May 7---Shortly before midnight last night, four footpads held up Thomas Brady, a landscape gardener, on the outskirts of the city, robbed him, removed his shoes and hat, battered his head with sandbags and laid him across the suburban railway tracks between Gambell Place and Etezel avenue and left him to be ground beneath the wheels of an electric car.
As the unconscious man lay on the track with one of the footpads bending over him arranging his shoes and his hat with the purpose of making it appear that Brady had fallen into a drunken sleep, a suburban car came thundering down the grade. The highwaymen fled, but too late to escape the notice of Motorman E. M. West, who vainly tried to stop the car before the prostrate man was reached. Brady was dragged beneath the fender and frightfully mutilated. His right arm was broken and his left thigh was cut open from hip to knee.
Brady is now at the Baptist Sanitarium, where his death is momentarily expected. Motorman West says that he saw two men on the track rifling Brady's pockets, who fled at the approach of the car.

FOUGHT THE ROBBER

Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 31.--A masked burglar entered the house of Mrs. Ellen Kelly, 5 miles west of Argentine Sunday. She and her daughter Eliza live alone and there was considerable money in the house. The women awakened to find the burglar in their presence. Mrs. Kelly got hold of a long sharp corn knife and a 3-cornered struggle followed.
The robber received a wound in the head inflicted with the knife and he beat both women badly about the face with his fist, while the daughter received two severe wounds in the head inflicted by the robber with the corn knife.
Finally the daughter succeeded in giving the alarm and neighbors came to their assistance. A large posse is in pursuit of the robber and a lynching is not improbable. Mrs. Kelly is 70 years old.

STOLE CHURCH LAMPS

Charles Myers, who has a harness store at 1110 East Eighteenth street, was chatting in front of his store last evening at 8 o'clock with T.J. Butler, who has a small grocery at 926 East Nineteenth street, when two trampish-looking fellows came along and asked them if they wanted to buy some brass lamps. Myers replied that he would buy them and the fellows went away after taking the number of the store on a piece of paper.
Fearing the men meant mischief, Butler and Myers followed them. At Nineteenth and Harrison streets, they saw them enter the basement of St. Joseph's church and emerge in a few minutes with several lamps.
Butler and Myers made an attempt to capture the men, but one of them got away and Butler went after him. Myers held his man and turned him over to Captain Phillips, of the Grand avenue police, who came in answer to a telephone message sent by Mrs. John Dwyer, wife of Patrolman Dwyer, who lives next to the church and saw the struggle. The other man was soon captured. The men gave the names, Charles Lewis and Dave Courtney.

This one turned out rather strange.

AN ACTRESS' REVENGE

St. Louis, Mo., May 25---May Campbell, a variety actress who came here from Cincinnati, hid in a clothes closet in Maud Devere's rooms today. She listened while her husband made violent love to the Devere woman and heard them arrange for an elopement. Then Mrs. Campbell emerged with a revolver and put five bullets into her husband and one into Maud Devere. She then walked to the Four Courts and gave herself up.
Mr. Campbell was taken in a dying condition to the city hospital. When a detective brought in his wife and asked him to identify her as his assailant, he refused to do so and kissed her affectionately. Campbell is shot through the lungs and through the throat. The surgeons say he will die before morning. The woman's wound is slight.
The Campbells had been performing at a local theatre. Three weeks ago Campbell met Maud Devere and took a fancy to her. As he was away from home more frequently than was necessary, Mrs. Campbell sought clues in her husband's pockets. She found a card bearing Maud Devere's name and address and called upon her. According to the story of Miss Devere, she did not know Mr. Campbell was married until this call was made. Mrs. Campbell took things quietly and asked ocular proof of her husband's preference, so she could get a divorce.
Maud Devere agreed to hide Mrs. Campbell in a closet from which she could see and hear the affectionate demonstrations of her recreant husband. Whether Mrs. Campbell heard more than she bargained for or whether she went with the intention of shooting her husband is unknown.
At midnight Mr. Campbell was sinking rapidly.

Kansas City Journal June 8, 1897

MRS. CAMPBELL HELD

St. Louis, Mo., Jun 7--Mrs. May Campbell, the Cincinnati woman who last week surprised her actor husband in the rooms of Maud Devere, and who shot them both, was today held for murder by a coroner's jury, which investigated the woman's death.
Maud Devere hid Mrs. Campbell in a closet in order that she might have proof of her husband's faithlessness. Mrs. Campbell lost her temper and used a revolver. The man was shot almost to bits, while the woman was only slightly wounded in the leg.
It was expected Mr. Campbell would die and Devere get well. Now Maud Devere is dead and Mr. Campbell is getting well. The defense offered today, on behalf of Mrs. Campbell, was that the bullet which struck Maud Devere was not intended for her, and that her death was less the result of the wound than of malpractice at the hospital to which the woman was taken.

SEDALIA BURGLAR CAUGHT

Sedalia, Mo., Jun. 3--Jacob Brandt discovered two thieves engaged in robbing the Brandt Grocery Company's Ohio street store at a late hour last night and, single handed, attempted their arrest. He succeeded in holding one of the burglars and turned him over to the police.
The thief proved to be the notorious Pete Scally, of this city, who is an all around burglar, sneak thief and highwayman. Judge Burr held Scally to the criminal court today, and in default of $1,000 bail he was lodged in jail. Scally is now sure of a long term in the penitentiary.

RECENT HOLDUPS AND ROBBERIES

R.S. Stevens, proprietor of a drug store at 2855 Southwest boulevard, Kansas City, Mo., reported to police that a robber had looted his store on the night of March 12 and "broke out instead of breaking in."
Mr. Stevens said the manner in which the plate glass window was broken, all of the glass being on the street, indicated the robber had concealed himself in the store in the daytime and was locked in. Morphine and cocaine tablets valued at $500 were taken, also $160 in currency and numerous drug store accessories.


The drug store of the Frisco Hospital, Kings highway and Laclede avenue, St. Louis, Mo., was entered one night and a large quantity of morphine, heroin, cocaine and other narcotics were stolen.


A burglar ransacked the drug store of the Missouri Pacific Hospital, California avenue and Henrietta street, St. Louis, and stole a large amount of Strychnine tablets, cocaine and morphine.


The drug store of Thomas Rosenthal, 1026 North Eighteenth street, St. Louis, was entered by burglars and quantities of drugs and toilet articles stolen.


The Myerly Drug Company, 1025 Broadway, Kansas City, Mo., was held up and $200 secured from the cash register. The holdup men also obtained an $800 diamond stud and $30 in cash from a customer who was in the store at the time.



The Keiffer Drug Company, 501 Franklin avenue, St. Louis, was burglarized in goods and money to the value of $100.


At 10 o'clock on March 22, three men took the contents of the cash register of the New Central Pharmacy, Thirty Third street and Indiana avenue, Kansas City, Mo.


When robbers blew the safe in the S. L. Robinson Drug Store, 3325 Main street, Kansas City, Mo., on the night of March 2, they did such a neat piece of work the police were inclined to believe they were professionals. However, in taking $750 worth of registered liberty bonds, the safe blowers overlooked $500 in cash in another compartment of the box.
