Holdup Victims Say the Pair Arc the
tons and Short Desperadoes Who
Hao Created Ttclgii of Terror
After successfully eluding tho polio
and city detectives for two months
during which time they are alleged t 0
have committed more than 20 daring
holdups and robberies the long and
short men the most notorious pair or
criminals that ever terrorized Salt Lik
City wero captured by Sheriff Joseph
Sharp and Deputy Sheriffs Richard s
JSddlngton John Corless and Samuel
Newell late Thursday afternoon ac
cording to the claims of these officers
The capture was sensational In dra
matlu features as the highwaymen
turned out to be old cowpunchers am
ant
bad men of the worst description and
they grabbed their revolvers which were
swinging at the head of the bed In
which they had been sleeping and put
up a desperate fight but were over
powered by tho sheriffs men
The short man gave the name oC
J B Fisk and the long man said
he was W S Jacobson Both men were
speedily and positively Identified by
numcious victims of their various
crimes Including Charles A Birtch
proprietor of the George Bess saloon
at Twelfth South and West Templo
streets J A Shafer of 1930 south Wcs

lO
West Temple and many others
Jacobson and Fisk were lodged In

The capture of these desperate crIm
Inals who havo held Salt Lake City In
a reign of terror for two months Is a
triumph of Sheriff Joseph C Sharp
over Chief of Pollco Barlow
Barlow has tried in vain for eight
weeks to get some line on the long
and short men But his methods have
always resulted In merely tipping on
the crooks
GREAT ON HOBO CATCHING
Chief of Detectives George Sheets
has spent the last two months In herd
ing every poor meanly dressed hobo
that he could find In Commercial street
and Plum alley into the city prison
where they were held a vags In an
effort to sift the flotsam and Jetsan
of the lower strata tlfrough a close
screen with the hope of finally coming
across the long and short men Sheets
has sprung numerous surprises In
the way of alleged captures of the
highwaymen but as usual the sup
posed robbers tuined out to be nothing
but tramps or friendless worklngmen
out Ul joos ana outer incsc LuaU ar
rests the police heads were strangely
silent regarding the identification of the
men held in detinue by the score
Sheriff Sharp and Deputy Sheriffs Ed
dlngton Corlass and Newell went to
work last Tuesday night when the
George Bess saloon was held up Rich
ard W Head was captured within 10
minutes after the crime ha been com
mitted 3 he was attempting to make
his escape and ride Into the city on a
street car Tho police dodged responsi
bility for finding tho holdups and
claimed that the robbery had been com
mitted outside the city limits and that
on tills ground the sheriffs office wa
responsible Sheriff Sharp took up the
challenge of Chief of Police Barlow and
Chief of Detectives Sheets and within
less than three days had effected the
capture of highwaymen who had given
the city detectives and police the slip
for more than two months
But unlike Sheets and Barlow Sheriff
j Sharp did not sit In his office all day
long and look out of the windows nnd
dream plots to catch the long and
short men Sheri Sharp got right
out and worked and his deputies work
ed night and day In time neighborhood
of each crimp looking for the slightest
cluei and keeping a close lookout for I
suspicious characters
LAYS PLAN FOR CAPTURK
Tho sheriff evolved a clever scheme
Various clues convinced him that the
men who had held up the saloon cither
lived in that vicinity or wore driven
into a hiding place In that neighbor
hood According ho culled nil of tho
victims of the various recent ciimcs
vlctlsoC crmes
with which he believed the long and
short men wero connected and put
ting their various descriptions of time
criminals together ho formed prac
tically a perfect picture of each of
the men Then the sheriff gave this
description In the finest details to his
deputies all sent them forth to follow
tho trail to tho finish Deputy Sheriffs
Corlcss Eddington and Newell got
hold of 1 A Shaffer ono of tho victims
of the holdup In tho George Bess sa
loon last Tuesday night Shafer said
that ho would know the holdups the
Instant ho could put his eyes on them
Together with Shaffer tho deputies b
gan a quiet canvass of the neighbor
hood around the George Bess saloon
Housewives wcro closely questioned as
to whether they had seen men of time
stated description l day long the
deputies with Shafer by their side
worked on and the trail kept getting
hotter until on Wednesday night after
20 hours of ceaseless pursuit they
I found the clue that absolutely clinched
the case and led to tho house where
Fisk and Jacobson were hiding I
was learned that two suspicious hook
Ing men answering tho descriptions of
the long and short men had been
living In a rom whitebrick house
on Culiey avenue and Gordon street
lying Between Fifth and Sixth East
streets and Eleventh and Twelfth
South streets Theso men It was
learned from several people who hal
noticed their peculiar mode of life
would leave the house every evening
stay out all night return In the early
hours of the morning nnd sleep all day
They never showed themselves outside
of the house In tho day time
THE HOUSE SURROUNDED
Tho sheriff and his deputies surround
ed this house Thursday afternoon anl
ono of thor knocked at time door A
womans voice called out from tho
Interior asking who was thoro and
what was wanted The officers opened
the door and rushed into time house to
gether rwo men were sleeping In
a bed at the head of which hung two
I
holsters holding Colts revolvers and
belts full of cartridges Beside the
bed on either side two loaded rifles
leaned against the wall As tho sher
iff and his men dashed Into tho rom
tl
the mon sprang out of bed seizing their
revolvers When they saw Shafer
they turned pale and Fisk was pulling
his gun down on Shatter when Edding
ton sprang at him and shouted
Throw up your hands weve got time
drop on you This undoubtedly saved
Shatters life
After Fisk and Jacobson were secure
ly handcuffed tho house was carefully
searched and more rifles Colts re
volvers and an enormous amount of
ammunition for nil the weapons were
found There were cartridges scat
tered all over the house The pockets
of both men hell many cartridges In
Jacobsons pocket was found 27 which
tales with the sum taken from the
cash register by the tall man who
Jumped over the bar during the
holdup of the George Bess saloon
The woman was closely questioned
and she said that she was Flaks wife
that she and her husband had come to
Salt Lake City about Sept 1 from
Jacksons Hole In Wyoming whero
Vomlnh
they had been living on a ranch anti
that Jacobson who was an old friend
of her husband had Joined thorn on
Dec 1 Jacobson she said was out
of 3 job and broke and she and
her husband had taken him In and had
agreed to give him board and room un
til ho could get work
Fisk and Jacobson In spite of tho
positive Identification of them by numerous
IOI
merous victims of holdups and rob I
beries stood pat when examined at
tho county Jail and claimed that they
would be able to prove an alibi Jacob
son said that he had come to Salt Lake
City from Butte > on Dec 1 that he had
Joined his friend Fisk on the same
day and that lie Is a bricklayer and
worked at that trade In Butte Jacob
son did not explain how ho could be
broke and out of a Job as Mrs Fisk
had claimed and yet have Z in his
trousers pockets at the same time
Four more len this morning posi

in their oar on the Wandamere line last

Time identification by Parrlsh MIIl r
and Hondrlckson on the one hand 1
by Birtcli Shatter and Schwartz

men who hold up the George Bess a
loon last Tuesday night also hold U I

night
