JENNINGS PAROLED

William Jennings, convicted at Hartville in 1899 for complicity in the famous Frisco train robbery near Macomb in 1898, has been paroled.
His time would have expired in June, at which time he would have served 15 years, as 5 years of his 20 year sentence would be deducted for good behavior. Jack Kennedy of Kansas City, the " Quail Hunter," said to have been the leader of the gang, has been out of the pen some time. Several men were implicated for the robbery, which netted almost $700. One died in prison and two turned state's evidence.

The Jasper News January 29, 1903

PREVENTED A BURGLARY

A posse of Jasper citizens was hastily organized Sunday night to prevent the town from being ransacked by burglars. Three suspicious looking characters were loitering around the streets all day Sunday.
About 9 o'clock as Bert Rhoades was buggy riding with a friend his horse was suddenly stopped near the lumber yard by a man grasping the bridle reins. It proved to be one of the three strangers. The man asked him several questions concerning the town.
Suspecting that the man might have some other motive for stopping him, Bert gave his horse a stroke with the whip, which caused it to jerk away from the man. Once released he widened the space between him and the stranger.
Coming back through town some time afterward he noticed the three strangers standing in front of Charles Ward's store. One of them walked up to the door and shook it violently, exclaiming, " We'll get in here before morning."
Bert spread the word about the three strangers and Mr. Ward came at once but the three men were gone. A number of armed citizens waited all night but the supposed burglars never returned.
Mr. Crandall's store at Dublin was burglarized last Sunday night and a number of small articles taken, it is possible that the work was done by these three men.

St. Louis Republic April 2, 1901 Pg3

CHARGED HIM WITH STABBING

Macon, Mo., Apr 1---After the sheriff and his deputies had spent all night hunting Roy Sherman, he came in Monday morning and surrendered to the officers.
In a fight Sunday at the rear of a saloon, Sherman cut Amiel Lorane, a mechanic, employed at the Shear Works, and inflicted five deep wounds, which may cause his death.
Two weeks ago Sherman and Lorane had trouble over the latter's wife, and Lorane knocked Sherman down. They met yesterday, and, as Sherman apologized, it was supposed the fuss was over, until sometime later, when Lorane was found lying in an alley, covered with blood and unconscious.
When he recovered he said Sherman assaulted him.
