PRECOCIOUS CRIMINALS

Walter Johnson, 18 years old, has been arrested for forgery. The crime was committed several weeks ago, although it only came to light recently.
Young Johnson had been doing odd jobs around the Swift poultry house. He was sent to the post office with a lot of letters and on the way he opened them and removed a check for $29 mailed to a Calhoun man.
After carrying the check around with him for several days, he forged an endorsement and cashed it at the Citizens Bank. The forgery was discovered and the Banker's Association has taken it up and is prosecuting the case.

NEGRESS FOOTPADS

R.H. Prichard, a fireman at Armour's packing house, was stopped by two negro women at Ninth and Bell streets last night and asked for money. He refused, and the women set upon him. One of them inserted her teeth in his left arm near the shoulder, making two very severe wounds.
He broke away and was about to run into a friendly saloon, when the other negress struck him on the back of the head with a club, cutting a deep and painful gash. Prichard went to Central Police Station, where his wounds were dressed by Dr. Longan.

SAYS HE SAW BILL RUDOLPH

Ed. Crockett, bartender for Eugene Guerre, a saloon keeper in Normandy, St. Louis county, is certain that he saw Bill Rudolph at that place last Monday.
A stranger about the size of Rudolph entered the saloon in the afternoon and pulled out a .38 caliber Colt revolver, which he offered to sell. He found a buyer immediately. John Kluford of Ferguson, gave him $6 for the weapon.

After the sale was made the stranger called Crockett into a back room and told him that he was going to take him into his confidence. He then displayed two other revolvers of the same make as the one he sold and asked Crockett to keep them for him until he returned from St. Louis. The bartender agreed to do so. Rudolph was gone about 6 hours when he came back and got his guns.

The next day an officer was in the place and displayed a picture of the notorious bank robber. Crockett instantly recognized it, and said he was positive it was the picture of the stranger who had visited him on the previous day.

There have been several reports since Rudolph's escape that he was hiding in St. Louis county. Several persons living in the vicinity of Bridgeton report having seen a person answering his description. It was also reported that he was at Creve Coeur Lake.
Will Terry is certain that Rudolph worked two days for a farmer near Bridgeton.

In 1919, a professional St. Louis gambler named "Kid" Becker, was robbed and shot to death in front of his home.
Days later, three of the guilty party were having drinks in a saloon when they overheard a prizefighter telling the bartender what a cowardly act it was the way Becker was killed. The robbers did not care for his remarks and started to fight with him. The prizefighter ended up knocking out all three men with his fists.

MURDER AND LYNCHING

The colored people gave a picnic near Glasgow last Saturday, which was largely attended.
Several of the negroes, after drinking freely, became involved in a serious quarrel. Thomas Sophy and Jerry Jackson, marshals, interfered to preserve the peace.
Sophy was shot dead by a man named Mickey, who also fired several shots at Jackson but missed. Mickey was captured and lodged in the calaboose.
Sophy was very popular and highly esteemed by both the white and colored people, hence there was great excitement over his being killed.
About 2 o'clock Sunday morning, about 100 colored men, armed mostly with double-barreled shotguns, stormed the jail, over powered the guard and grabbed their man.
They took him to a pasture south of town and hung him from a tree. They then dispersed quietly.

VANDALS IN A CHURCH

Vandals entered the Epworth M.E. church in Sedalia, just completed at a cost of $10,000, and cut all the electric light wires, damaged the woodwork and committed other depredations. The building committee has offered a liberal reward for the apprehension of the guilty parties.


A YOUTH SHOT AND KILLED

James B Evans, aged 18, was shot and instantly killed near Kingsville, Johnson county, by Millard Jones, an aged star route contractor.
Some trouble between Evans and a younger member of the Jones family was the cause of the killing.



KILLED FOR A CHICKEN THIEF

Mrs. Mohala Grimes died at Agency the other day from the effects of gunshot wounds inflicted by William McCauley, who mistook the woman for a chicken thief and fired. McCauley is a wealthy farmer. He is in jail.



WERE NOT SURPRISED

The news of the bank robbery at Wichita Falls, Tex., in which Elmer Lewis, formerly of Neosho, was implicated, and for which he was lynched, caused no great surprise.
Lewis was the son of James Lewis, of Neosho, and about a year ago went to the Territory. He was never known to be engaged in lawlessness of any consequence, but always wanted to convey the idea of being a bad man.
