An Imitation of the James Boys'
Methods at Solomon No One Hurt
and Little Money Taken. '
Special to the Reflector.
Solomon, Kas., Nov. 10.
M. Hollingsworth's livery barn was
set on fire and burned to the ground
about 1 o'clock this afternoon and
while every one was at the fire a man
ran into the Farmers' Bank crying
"Eire!" He ran to the back end of the
room, wanting to know if he could get
through that way. Then he ran be
hind the counter, holding a pistol on
Mr. Ferguson, the cashier, who was at
the paying teller's window, taking his
money from the draw to put in the
safe. The robber demanded the money
which was given him.
Mr. Ferguson grabbed his pistol at
the same time he handed over the
money. They had a scuffle and the
pistol was discharged. This scared the
burglar, ne dropped the pistol and
ran. Mr. Ferguson followed him and
shot four times at him but without hit
ting him. He is now probably south
of town with citizens in pursuit.
Mr. Ferguson escaped with a small
cut on one finger and the robber with
very little money.
After the robbery Sheriff JNaill was
telegraphed for and with a posse of a
hundred men he searched the county
south of Solomon, but with no success.
The man went across fields and through
ravines and could not be traced.
Some thought it possible that he
changed his disguise and mingled with
the pursuers. The robbery was equal
in boldness to any of the James boys'
Upon his return to Abilene Sheriff
Xaill received a despatch saying that a
man, thought to be the criminal, had
been captured at Cailton. According
ly he and Under Sheriff Ellison went
to Carlton yesterday but the man was
not the guilty one. The'county north
of Carlton was searched, but still with
This morningseveral hundred notices
offering $100 reward were sent out.
The robber got away with about
$200. The stable of Roe Hollingsworth
which he set on fire was burned to the
ground but the contents and surround
ing property saved.
The following is the reward, the
man's description being thought to
tally with that of one, Williard Jack
son, living near Gypsum City:
The above reward will be paid for the
arrest and detention of the man who
robbed the Farmers' State bank, of
Solomon City, Kas., onXovember ie,

and others were the passengers. The
Xew Basel band preceded the com
pany. The utmost good humor pre
vailed. The streets were crowded
with spectators, and cheers and shouts
marked the progress of the car.
IN TIIE EVENING
the streets were fairly alive with peo
ple and the Hanison jolliliers turned
out en masse. The procession was
formed on Cedar and w hen it moved
was nearly or quite as long as that of
the great parade of Cvt. 20th. The

followed the visiting clu'js, flcirnbeaux,

senting the Salt River Packet line bear
ing the cabinet away and Grover on a
fishing excuision made capital
hits. A constant roar of cheers
went np from the thousand
or more men in line and
made the occasion a memorable one.
The gun club kept up a steady fusilade
and a cannon on the public square
boomed at short intervals. Several
prominent Democrats walked ia the
procession, their hats covered with
crape. An amusing feature of the pa
rade was the issuing of passes via the
Salt River Packet line to the bystand
ers. The passes read: "Pass the bear
er on account of British free trade up
After the procession had traversed
the principal streets of the city, it was
halted in front of the band stand when

began. D. R. Gorden presided and
first introduced W. S. Stambaugh who
made a characteristic speech, putting

was followed by Hon. C. Kohler, of
Enterprise, and C. C Bitting, county
attorney elect. Both gentlemen held
the audience's close attention and were
After the speaking bonfires blazed
and cannon boomed until far into the
night. The indications are that Harri
son is fully elected so far as Abilene is
concerned. The boys have had an
abundance of fun out of it and the
hearty good humor that has prevailed
on all sides added much to the pleasure
of the close of the campaign.

The Southwest Dickinson county
institute was held Saturday at Solo
mon City. It was the best institute
that has been held in that place for
a long time and the people spared no
effort to make the meeting a success.
The sessions were held in the opera
hall and it speaks well for the interest
manifested by the Solomonites that the
large room was filled to overflowing
with teachers and others.
After the usual opening exercises
Hon. E. Brunson welcomed the teach
ers in an appreciative speech which
evidenced the gentleman's interest in
educational affairs and his good wishes
for the profession.
Charles G. Bear and W, E. Binder
responded in brief talks characteristic
of their well-known ability.
Miss Florence King, of Solomon,
read a carefully prepared paper on
"Primary Teaching" which gave the
listeners many helpful pointers on that
most- difficult department of school
work the training of the little folks.
Chas. G. Bear, of Wheatland, then
gave an interesting discussion of "Ap
paratus, how secured." The lack of
apparatus is one of the chief difficul
ties of the country teacher. Mr. B.
showed khow it can be secured cheaply.
The literary topic was the writings
of Alice and Phoebe Cary. Mis3
Lillie Sutherland and Miss Field read
"Composition "Work," by J. H.
Xeisley, was a strong plea for more
original written work in our schools,
