Sedalia Weekly Bazoo February 5, 1884

A POLICEMAN ROBBED

Officer Jim Gossage is one of the most faithful and efficient officers on the force, and when he awoke yesterday morning he felt very much mortified to discover that he had been visited by burglars while he slept, and robbed of the greater part of his January salary which was contained in his pants' pocket.
When the cop awoke he found the front window open and his clothes missing. Upon investigation he discovered his garments in the yard, but the sum of $48, which was among his effects after he went to sleep, was missing.
The officer's watch and other valuables were not disturbed. He did not retire until 2 o'clock yesterday morning, and being very much fatigued by his long watch slept very soundly.
He says he doesn't care so much for the $48 as he does to think that any sneaking burglar dare enter his house and carry his clothes off.

FOR A JASPER ROBBERY

Two tramps were arrested at Lamar last week on suspicion that they had robbed the depot at that place.
The two bums, who gave their names as Joe Davis and Irvin Beng were arrested Sunday night by Sheriff Slavens and Marshal McLaughlin. The marshal had received a phone call informing him that the depot had been broken into and it was thought the thieves were headed this way.
The marshal asked the sheriff to assist him in rounding up the thieves. The officers reached the Pacific yards and found Davis and Beng hiding in a boxcar. On being searched, a jimmy and other burglar tools were found on them.
They were charged with vagrancy, fined $20 and will do labor on the streets while their involvement with the depot robbery is investigated.

Oliver H. Bateman, who murdered the little McLaughlin girls in Andrew county in September, was hung at Savannah last Friday. He remained stoical and indifferent to the last. The only words uttered by him on the scaffold were: " Lord Jesus receive my spirit."




In 1891 Henry Willis killed Charles Cargile in Perry county. He was sentenced to ten years in the penitentiary.
