PROVES A THIEF
HANDSOME WARREN PERCY OR-
DERED OUT OF SUPERIOR.
Young Vermonter Out a Wide Swath
and Was Treated Almost as a Mem
ber of the Wilson FamilyFound
Where the Latchkey Was Kept and
Stole Money and GemB.
Special to The Journal.
Superior, Wis., May 22.Warren Percy, hand
some, brilliant, a favorite in polite society here
in the erstwhile, has fallen from grace. His
friends have been startled with the news that he
has confessed to a daring robbery. Not only
that, it was from the woman in whose home he
had often been an honored guest that he stole
Jewels and money of the value of $800.
Last year a young Superior attorney, Howard
D. Bailey, went to Bennington, Vt., and mar
ried. He returned here with his wife. One day
last fall she read In a local paper an item that
Warren Percy of Bennington had come to the
head of ihe lakes on a boat, was taken ill and
sent to a, hospital In Duluth. Mrs. Bailey knew
the Percy family and she at once looked up the
young man, ill and friendless here. Flowers
and delicacies were bis portion from that day.
When he left the hospital be came to Superior
and his newly found friends soon introduced him
to society and in business circles. Percy's Apol
lo-like face and form quickly made him a favor
ite. At the home of Mrs. William Wilson and
daughter, Miss Bessie, ha was a frequent caller.
Such was his intimacy there that he was treated
almost as a member of the family and soon knew
the secrets of the household, where the latch
key was kept and where the jewels and money.
One night last week the mother and daughter
went to the theater, leaving the house locked
and the latchkey in Its accustomed place. When
tl-ey returned the Jewel box and $70 in cash were
gone. Mrs Wilson suspected Percy, but the
young man was loud In his protestations and
much offended that his benefactors should sus
pect him. Mrs. Wilson felt certain and after
telling Percy that he had been detected called in
When he reached the cell he wilted and offered
restitution of the Jewels and $40all he had
leftfor his liberty. The women were loath to
make a scandal, and after the valuables were
restored they refused to prosecute. The police
agreed to release Percy If he would quit the
city at once, and he vanished. Until today his
social and business friends have been wondering
why and where he went.
DTETZ' ALLY AT LARGE
Weisenback Released on Bonds Fur
nished by Brothers of Homesteader.
HAYWARD. WIS.Valentine Weisenback,
principal ally and sideoairtner of the famous
John F. Dletz, of Cameron dam, in the south
eastern part of this county, was released from
the county Jail here Saturlay upon $1,000 bail,
furnished by Henry and William W. Diets,
trothers of the Ca-neron dam homesteader.
Weisenback was chirged with firing upon the
county sheriff and his posse when they en
deavored to serve a circuit court summons upon
John F. Dietz over a year ago. His trial is set
for the fall term of circuit court in this city.
Weisenback's arrest was accomplished by a
ruse of one of the detectives employed by the
logging company. He owis a homestead adjoin
ing Dletz and has been the staunchest friend
that Diets has had in Ids trouble with the
logging corporation and has given the home
steader invaluable assistance in defending his
rights to Cameron dam and preventing the log
ging company from running its 20,000,000 feet of
logs thru the dam. While Diets slept or ate, or
was detained from his post, he was relieved by
Weisenback, who stood guard over the dam
with his Winchester, keeping the drivers and
officials at a distance.
Weisenback made occasional trips to the little
village of Winter, the nearest railroad station
for provisions and for the mail. It was while
en one of these trlife that the company's detec
tives laid a trap for him and soon bad him in
their possession. However, 1$ Is not believed
they can show any case against him and he wlU
undoubtedly be dismissed by the court, there
being little or no evidence to show that he
committed any wrong.
Weisenback is a strong and fearless young
man and Is said to be the favored suitor for
the hand and heart of John F. Dletz' young and

HUNT WOLVES WITH HOUNDS
Two Wisconsin Men Collect Bounty on
BARRON, WISB. Grimes of Clear Lake
and J. R. Schorn of River Falls found seven
young wolves In Maple Grove township yester
day. This makes fifty-one they have captured
this spring, for which they received $10 each
in county and state bounty.
These men make a business of hunting wolves
with hounds every spring. The dogs are taken
to farms where sheep are kept, and if wolves
have been around the premises the previous

low in hot pursuit. The old wolf is followed
to Its den, but is seldom caught.

the wolves were brought here alive, photo

mayor instead of the chairman of Maple Grove
