This Cnps tho Climax
Chicago, July 29. The police
have succeeded in capturing a 16-year-old
robber, with achievements in
horse stealing unparalleled in this part
of the country. His name is given as
Edward Brown and he claims to have
come from Kendall county, Texas.
About the 6th of June Brown came in
with a carload of Texas ponies and
when his friends had sold their stock
and returned home he formed the
acquaintance of Charles Crane aged' 10
also hailing from Texas. Brown soon
proposed that they go into the horse
stealing business on a large scale be
ing convinced that it would be very
profitable. A business partnership
was formed between the two Texans
and a barn rented in the west sida of
the city that would hold about twenty
horses. Nightly forages were begun
and were successful. The boys hired
five men as grooms bought hay by the
ton and oats by the carload. In less
than twenty four hours after they star
ted in business they had stolen five
horses and sold three of them for li
beral prices. The boldness of their
plans was remarkable. They would
hitch two stolen horses to a stolen
carriage and drive along Michigan
avenue until they saw a team which
suited them. To see a good horse
meant ownership for them for they
would follow it home and in all pro
bability secure it that night. Every
few days the two Texans would go out
in the suburbs to look for good horses.
They stole them from Hyde Park,
Grand Crossing South, Chicago Engle
wood and other suburbswest and south.
Their stable became full of valuable
norses ana citizens oegan 10 irequeni
their stables for the purpose oi buying
stock. Business prospered and the
whilom cowboys blossomed out in
radiant raiment. All this time com
plaints were coming into police head
quarters thick and fast but they could
not find the thieves. July 12, how
ever was a fatal day for the adven
tureres. They stole a horseand buggy
from a north side citizen and drove to
a blacksmith shop riear by to have
some slight repairs made. While
waiting, one of them stole the black-
smith's watch and was soon accused

of the theft. Both drew revolvers and
compelled the blacksmith to apolo
gize for the charge. As toon as the
boys had left the blacksmith made
complaint at the Lakeview police
station giving a good description of
the bandits. Detective was detailed
on the case. He was about to give
up search in the early part of last week
when he saw the boys driving west on
Washington boulevard. He secured
ahorse, followed them to their -ham
and shadowed the place for three or
four days as he could not believe they
alone could have been guilty of such
a gigantic scheme of horsestealing as
was before his eyes. Crane became
suspicions of the espionage and fled,
but Brown was arrested. On his per
son was found $400 in cash. Twentj
five horses and eighteen stolen vehi
cles have already been turned up and
more are coming in every day. The
horses are unformly fine and the
vehicles range from dog cart to four-in-hands.
Brown confessed every
thing to Capt. Nillers. The stolen
property is being restored to the pro
per owners as fast as it can be secured
