LOST A DIAMOND RING AND $85

William Bennett, a guest of the Brunswick Hotel, left a disorderly house at 1607 Main street last night with Clara Donnelly, in a hack driven by her husband, G.R. Donnelly.
Bennett later discovered his purse had been taken from his pocket, robbed of $85 and replaced and that a diamond stud valued at $125 had been stolen from his shirt bosom.
Near Ninth and Walnut he called Officer Thoes, who sent the whole party to the police station. There Donnelly, Mrs. Donnelly and the hack were searched, but no trace of the money or diamond was found. The Donnelly's were held for investigation.

MORE ROBBERY

We learn that a man named Snow, who had recently opened a store on the river, in the northern portion of this county, was, on last Friday, robbed of $700 and a large quantity of goods.
Four men with their faces covered, and with drawn revolvers, entered his store and compelled him to deliver to them whatever they wanted. They took as many of the goods as they could carry.
Mr. Snow could not detect from their voices who they were. The people of that section could not obtain the least clue to their whereabouts, and it seems impossible to conjecture where they are from.

SEEMS TO BE A BAD MAN

A shrewd looking man who gives the name of James Burt and is believed by the police to be a professional burglar, was arrested at 5:30 last evening as he came out of Shapiro's pawnshop at 612 Walnut street by Officers Joe Stewart and P.J. Murphy.
He had just pawned a gold ring. When the officers, who were in citizen's clothes, placed Burt under arrest, he resisted stoutly and said he would not go to the police station. He carried a large chisel in his overcoat pocket which he attempted to use on the officers but was overpowered and locked up for investigation.
At the station a number of door keys and silk handkerchiefs were taken from his pockets. He had a black rag, which looks very much like a mask, and carried an extra cap in his overcoat pocket. The chisel was bent to be used as a " jimmy."




In 1896, Ben F Cates shot and killed his cousin Monroe Bales at a carnival in Kansas City.

THIEVES ARRESTED

St. Louis.---Henry Vogel, William Allen and Thomas Kerwin, members of a gang of thieves who have been robbing freight cars near East St. Louis for some time, were arrested yesterday and are now in jail. Considerable tobacco and other stolen property was found in their possession. Their arrest will probably break up one of the worst bands of railroad thieves ever organized.
