The News Boy (Benton, Mo) November 24, 1894

FIVE DOLLARS REWARD

The Newsboy will give five dollars to anyone who will furnish sufficient testimony upon which to convict E.H. Smith of destroying the posters put up by us along the public highways. We have sufficient evidence to convince us that he is the villain who has been doing the contemptible work, but it is hardly sufficient to convict him in a court. He has been seen to throw the torn posters from his buggy. We will also give five dollars evidence sufficient to convict anyone else from this date on.

STEALS AUTO GETS 5 YEARS

Sam Boguslaw was convicted of stealing J.P. Hopper's automobile and was sentenced to five years in the state penitentiary in Circuit Court this afternoon.
The state's evidence in the case tended to show that Boguslaw stole a Hudson car belonging to Hopper from Hopper's garage last December 11, which he took to St. Louis, where he was later arrested. It was charged that when taken into custody Boguslaw gave a fictitious name.
The defendant tried to show by evidence that he answered an advertisement in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat of a car for sale, and that he bought the car from a man who said his name was Hopper. A bill of sale was shown to the court, which J.P. Hopper declared had never been seen by him nor had he signed such a document.
O.W. Curry of the Globe-Democrat testified that Hopper was not the man who had placed the for sale ad in the paper.

William Martin

https://www.lakenewsonline.com/news/...r-billy-martin







Weekly Graphic (Kirksville) November 20, 1880 Pg2

Lebanon, Mo., Nov 17---William F Martin, a murderer under death sentence confined in the jail here, has been released by the sheriff's niece, a girl 17 years old, with whom he has eloped. The girl has been the prisoner's principal custodian of late.
Their flight was not discovered until last night. It took place sometime during the day. Everything was all right when the sheriff was called away on business in the morning. The guilty pair have been traced to a point on the Tuscombia road, five miles distance. It is not thought probable Martin will be captured alive, as he is a desperate character, and is armed with a Spencer rifle which he took from the jail.

SAFE ROBBER CAUGHT

Golden City, Mo., Jun 4---Lockwood officials caught a robber red-handed who, to the surprise of everyone, turns out to be one of the most prominent men in the community. Someone extinguished the switchlight at the Memphis depot at a late hour, and while the night operator was absent fixing it, William Little, recently married to one of Lockwood's belles, cracked the safe in the depot and secured cash amounting to about $50. As he was about to leave, Constable Keran and Night Watchman Furis captured him.

BANK ROBBERS USE TELEPHONE TO LURE TELLERS OUT OF WAY

Springfield, Feb 2---Robbers used telephones instead of guns in Springfield's slickest bank raid and walked away with $4,000 before Union National Bank employees even became suspicious.
Teller Arthur Sanders was at lunch. Six telephone calls with fake messages took tellers away from adjoining cages.
Suspicions of a clerk who saw two strangers loiter near Sanders' cage, then stroll away, led to the discovery that $4,000 was missing. Officials deduced the loiterers had used a stick to drag currency within reach.
