For some years there existed in Webb City, Mo., an organization styled as an athletic club, the ostensible purpose of which was the promotion of athletic sports and pastimes.
It was really an organized band of swindlers, some of whom masqueraded as wealthy miners, and so notorious did they become that they were commonly known in the community as the "Buckfoot gang."
Many people were deprived of their money by fake foot races.

KANSAS CITY HAS DOUBLE TRAGEDY

Kansas City, Nov. 11.--- Dr. W.H. Kimberlin, a pioneer citizen and a prominent physician, was shot and killed in his office this afternoon by John Scanlon, formerly a policeman, who then shot and killed himself. The bodies of both men were found in the doctor's office. Dr. Kimberlin was shot three times and both must have died almost instantly.

Scanlon, who is the brother of a prominent local politician, asserted, it is said, that Kimberlin had caused him to lose his eyesight. Scanlon had left a note on the dresser in which he had written:
" Notify my brother at City hall, I did this because he destroyed my eyes."

Scanlon had been receiving treatment from Dr. Kimberlin for almost two weeks. He entered the physician's office unseen and it is not known how long he had been there.

Another patient who was waiting in an outside office said:
" I heard Scanlon go into the doctor's office and I heard him and the doctor talking. There was no quarrel or loud words, until Dr. Kimberlin cried out: " Oh, don't, John."
A bullet came through the wall and passed over the chair from which I had jumped when the shooting began."

The first person to enter the room was Dr. Kimberlin's son, also a physician, who is proprietor of a drug store situated on the ground floor of the building. Both men lay on the floor dead and covered with blood.
Scanlon had shot himself through the temple, the bullet tearing away the upper part of his face.

Dr. Kimberlin was 58 years old and had practiced in Kansas City for 30 years.
Scanlon was 37 years old and single. He lived formerly at Breckenridge, Mo. He had worked as a fireman on the Burlington railroad and later as a patrolman on the Kansas City police force.

The Weekly Intelligencer (Lexington, Mo) September 9, 1893 Pg3

Miss Mollie Cheatham was talking to a lady friend on the circus ground Monday, holding her pocketbook in her hand.
A nicely dressed young man walked up to her, took hold of the book and gave it two or three jerks. She held on, and he let go.
She asked: " What do you mean, sir?"
He answered in a careless way: " I want you to tell me who that is," pointing to somebody at a distance, and then he walked off, and was lost in the crowd. He needed a good thumping.

LONE TRAIN ROBBER FREE

Jefferson City, Oct 2.-- "Sam" Wilson, the lone train robber of Missouri, was released from the Missouri penitentiary yesterday after serving 11 years and 3 months of a 15 year sentence.
He was discharged under the three fourth term law for good behavior, and the officers say they never had a better prisoner in the institution.

He worked a long time in one of the shops, but recently was given a position in the prison library. He left for his home in Richland, Pulaski County.

He alone had robbed a Missouri Pacific express train near Pacific on the night of May 24, 1893. He secured $4,000 from the express car which he blew open with dynamite that he had forced the engineer and fireman to place on the car door. The express messenger was compelled to open the safe and throw the 4 bags of silver out of the car onto the ground.

Wilson was only able to carry one bag away. The next day $500 were found scattered in a nearby cornfield. An old valise was found hidden in a fence corner with the name S.A. Wilson, Richland, Mo., on it.
Wilson was soon arrested. He went into the penitentiary July 3, 1893.

Governor William J Stone was on the train that he robbed and couldn't believe Wilson did all that single handed.
