THEFT OF BICYCLE IS REPORTED TO POLICE

Thomas W Stephens, 1 South Pacific street, reported to Chief of Police Segraves this morning that a bicycle belonging to his son, Orville, was stolen from his front yard last night. The bike had been left on the south side of the front porch and was taken away after the family had retired for the night. The bicycle was a Westminster, painted a light tan color, had rubber pads on the peddles, with one pad off, new rear tire, hand-holds off the handle bars.
Stephens said a track in the dust led him to believe that a man had stolen the bike and he asked that the bloodhound be put to work. The man-hunter was taken to the place, but he was unable to get a scent.

NAB MEXICANS AT ST. LOUIS

St. Louis, May 1---One of two Mexicans under arrest here today, said he was Manuel M. Prieto, mayor of Juarez, Mexico, from 1914 to 1916, and that he came to St. Louis recently to purchase arms for Gen. Alvara Obregon and the armies revolting against the Caranza government.
Prieto, in company with a man who today asserted he was Raymond R Morfin of El Paso, were arrested yesterday on suspicion when it was learned they were in possession of $27,000. They gave different names and then asserted they were hardware dealers of Douglas, Ariz. Morfin has not deviated from his original story.
Prieto asserted he was formerly a member of the Mexican congress and came to the United States two weeks ago and withdrew $32,000 from the United States National Bank at Douglas to purchase arms and ammunition. He acted on his own initiative and not on orders of Obregon.
Morfin joined him, he is reported as saying, and after purchasing the arms, they intended on opening a hardware store in El Paso and furnish the articles to Obregon through it. They were unable to purchase the arms because of the inability to furnish business references.
Both men are held for government agents.

ST. JOSEPH'S BOY BURGLAR

Frank Goss, aged 17, was arrested by the police of St. Joseph on a charge of burglary. He confessed to numerous hold-ups. He robbed street cars, saloons and pedestrians, and declares that he was unaided. Victims of three robberies reported them at the time, describing a " long and short man," with ugly guns, were their assailants.
Recently he created a veritable reign of terror, one resulted in the printing of a public notice by Chief of Police Broder offering a reward for dead footpads. Goss is a refined-looking, gentle voiced boy, possessing none of the bravado or swagger characteristic of a ruffian.

FOILED ROBBERS ENGAGE IN PISTOL DUEL WITH POLICE

Shortly after 1 o'clock this morning Patrolman Burke of the Fourth District was attracted by shots while standing at the corner of Broadway and Biddle street coming from two men in a buggy. As the buggy passed him a man fell out. He was dead. He proved to be Jack McAuliffe, said to be a Deputy Constable under Constable Tom Kinney.
On his person, when searched at the morgue, was found a revolver, part of which was broken.
After attempting to hold up Clyde A Johnson, 17 years old, clerk of the St. Charles Hotel, at Fourteenth and St. Charles streets, who resisted and was shot 3 times in the left arm, about 12:30 o'clock this morning, two highwaymen engaged in a running pistol duel with 3 special officers, one of whom, Michael Cremins, was wounded in the right leg.
Joseph Wright, one of the alleged robbers, was shot twice in the right side and also in the neck.
Special Officer Cremins was not seriously hurt, and the young clerk also is not dangerously wounded. Wright, however, is not expected to recover.
According to the hotel clerk, Wright and his companion came to the hotel shortly after 12 o'clock and sat on the steps for a few minutes. Then they entered the hotel and commanded Johnson to hold up his hands. The latter had been on the lookout for highwaymen since so many robberies have been reported within the last few days. He had taken the precaution to place a revolver within easy reach.

PULLS BIG REVOLVER
Instead of obeying the command to "shell out his coin," the youthful Johnson arose from behind the hotel counter with a big pistol and began shooting. The boy had fired several shots, when the shock of several bullets from the weapons of the robbers caused him to sink to the floor, 3 balls having entered his left arm. Firing as they backed out, the robbers retired from the building.
Special Officers Cremins and Gordon and Detective Murphy, who happened to be in the vicinity, were attracted by the shooting and came on a dead run, reaching the hotel just as the highwaymen emerged.
Commands to the robbers to halt were answered by bullets, each man opening a fusillade with two revolvers upon the officers, to which the latter responded. Many volleys were exchanged.
The highwaymen ran north on Fourteenth street and west on Washington avenue to Robbins lane, keeping up the fire as they ran.
Across a vacant lot at Washington avenue and Robbins lane one of the fugitives was seen to dart. The other continued north on Robbins lane.
