general belief was that Curley had

he pretended to hv unjustly accused,
threatened 11 libel suit, nud secured a re

and Government bonds from a safu in the
Roy shawl factory. Ho was not pun

which he got out of that difficulty has
since been repeated often. He Is sup.
nosed to have been tlie leader iu eleven
bank robberies, planning the crimes, fur

and fine burglary machinery, directing
