A preacher cf the gospel by day and a
daring hone thief at night that, in brief,
has been tbe career of Amos T. Whitman,
who was released from tbe Northern prison i
of Indiana a few day ago after serving
two years' time.
From the Indiana penitentiary be was
taken to. one In Ohio, and aftrr he has
served his time thcro he will undergo tbe
penal service of Illinois and then go from
prison to prison until society's long (tend
ing score againct him ba been settlod.
Whitman is of no ordinary en liber. A
a leadur of hoaso thieves he never had an
equal in the central states. His sermons
were filled with tenderness, enthusiasm
and earnestness, and he had the wire facul
ty of being able to really swny the minds
of men. Bet it was not until he was 60
years old. that his Jekyll-Hvde character
and his crimes w.cre discovered.
Hia influence over women was -no less.
More than half a dozen wives are scattered
through the states in which he alternately
prayed and stole.
Whitman Is an Obioan. Even when a
yonng man he attracted a great deal of at
tention because of his shrewdness. He
had only a common school education and
a faculty for absorbing all kinds of knowl
edge without instruction. Among other
things, he acquired a smattering of theol
ogy from listening to sermons and the talk
of the religiously inclined.
Life In bis native community became
Irksome, and so be left one night after an
alleged forgery and wholesale theft of fin
- In Kansas he began Lis career as a
preacher. He bad a email charge and be
married one of tbe sisters. He preached to
bis flock and prayed whihj he was stealing
from them. He went to their homes asd
prayed with them in private, and while
there he spotted'their horscaand laid his
wusAiA- t. bio inu
plane for pnln. Horses ue?an to disappear,
and n short timo titer Whitman lent his
newly nsanired wife and the commnrlrf ,
and next turned up fn Nebraska, where
tho performance wa repeated with equal
success. From there be went to Missouri.
, Ho had by this tinje organized one of
the most ' ccniplute underground horse
stealing ystenis the central states have
known for years. He posed as a traveling
evangelist; and converted hundred of per
Bous. He would go into a .small com
munity and introduce himself to the lead
ers in the little country congregaMen. He
wool-', present letters and begin a series of
The good brothers and sister would be
plrased with his sermons, and be would be
taken into their homes; He would ask
grace at their tables, partake of their food
and when the meal was over would stroll
out around tbe premises generally the
barn noting carefully everything that
caught his eyes. H would examine the
live stock, especially the hones, and would
fled out how and where they were kept at
night. He would also ascertain if the own
er kept a lock on them, and how sound
and where he slept; whether there was
any one else who would be up and around,
and whether, In short, there would be any
trouble in getting the animals away.
After preaching a week or ten days in a
community tbo finest horses would disap
pear all in one night. He would be shock
ed the next morning when be learned of
the affair and would quote Scripture to
tbe losers, sympathize with them even to
tears and would exert every Influence to
keep them from starting out on a bunt for
the thieves. If this waa impossible, he
would detain them and would then throw
them off tho trail. The horses would nev
er be beard of, and a week later tbe good
preacher would conclude his meetings and
leave. He would go to another section of
the state and there begin a series of meet
ing with tbe same results. Thus be cov
ered almost every section of Indiana, Oh'la
and Illinoh, and most of Siisaouri, east
ern Kansas and Nebraska and part of Iowa.
So perfectly did be do his work that bad
it not been for two little Incidents he
would probably have continued working
tt indefinitely. He made a fatal mistake
at last by stepping from the pnlprt and do
ing tbe stealing personally. That was In
Indiana tveo year ago, but even tbenNbe
came near coveriag his identity completely.
A few years ago Whitman turned up at
hi old home. This was quickly followed

Whitman had tbe start and seemed Ho keep

sufficient. From Sturgis tbe asce turned,
and they went dowa through tbe Miasia

The gnat number of times that Welker

ao exasperated him that, though th aaao

thief shot off hi supply of funds, ba went
lata his own pocket and continued tba
chase on his own account.
At a small hamlet in Illinois Welker
eonefuded to consult a fortune teller.
When he entered tbe room, she immediate
ly said: you are after a man who left
bere a few noun ago. I told him be was a
fugitive from justice, and ha acknowl
edged It, He then threw open hia coat
and showed ma a string of revolver and
said that be intended to protect himself If
It ever came to a straw down."
Tbe fortune teller told Welker that It
would be a long chase, and he would give
np, but In the future their lire would
cross under most peculiar circumstances,
and bo would get hia man. Whitman
eluded tbe sheriff, and tbe latter returned
to hia home.
Two year ago several bone were stolen
near Anderson, Ind., and the officers were
put on the track of the thieve. Tbe fol
lowing morning one of them was over
taken. He waa driving two of tbe stolen
animal and wa sound asleep. He was
placed under arrest before be awoke, and
though ha attempted to get at hia gun be
waa too alow and wa disarmed. He wa
placed behind the bars. He gave hi nam

no other "Information. He was tried and

Whitman' methods were daring and
unique. Mow many tliere were in the gang
will never be known, but there were three
or four women In the combination who at
tended to the selling of the horse. Tbe
horses were taken by men who were adepts
in horse theft. They were smuggled away
to place where bleaching outfits had been
built by the gang. Every .borne was put
through a tleucbiBg process which cbaOKed

didly, fed and at last placed on the innr-
