BY QUICK WORK
OF SHERIFF WEBB
Man Who Forged Check for $96
Taken in Seattle Six Hours After
Sheriff's Office is Notified-Must
Answer to Serious Charge.
Some of the quickest work in the
history of the local sheriff's office was
done Wednesday when through the
efforts of Sheiiff Webb. J. C. Doyle,
who passed a worthless check for $96
on Harry Coustantine, was arrested in
Seattle six hours after The warrant
for his arrest was placed in sheriff
Webb's hands Tuesday afternoon
Constautine found that jjhe had been
viti mixed by Doslu and swore out a
warrant for his arrest. Wednesday,
an hour a ter the afternoon trai is
bad met here this was turned over to
Sheriff Webb wl o immediately got
busy and telegraphed a description
of Doyle to Seattle, Everett, Wilson
Creek and Spokane. Defectives Byrns
and Phillips met the overland train
at Seattle and arrested Doyle upon tie
desaripton furnished by Sheriff Webb
and yesterday be was brought back to
Wenatciiee. This morning, he was
brought before Judge Palmer, plead
guilty to the charge of forgery and
was bound over to the superior court
under bonds of 11,000 which he was
unable to furnish. He is now in
the county jail and will be tried at the
nest term of court.
What makes the speedy capture of
Doyle all the Jmore remarkable is the
fact that his crime wis not discovered
for tweutv-four hours after it had
been committed and he had ample op
portunity to escape on the enly morn
ing trains, but for Sheriff Webb's
quick work in getting his description
to the Seattle police Doyle would
probably have made good his escape
as he was out of town before the in
formation was placed in the sheriff's
