SOME GUN PJiAY INDULGED IN
Real Burglars Break Into. Two Resi
dences, But Get
The recent experiences about the
city with porch climbers and house
breakers have rendered the people
unusually diligent in watching for
suspicious prowlers late at night.
Last evening about 11 o'clock some
one passing the home of Dr. F. D.
Paul, at Sixth avenue and Twenty
third fitreet, noticed something close
ly resembling a man on the kitchen
roof. He paused for an instant to
make sure and saw that the object
moved. Evidently-the party was try
ing to rai.se a jwiiidow that Jed into
the second story anf the houses"
The citizen slipped quietly away to
avoid being seen and at the nearest
telephone called the police, in
forming them, that the burglar could
be caught if the campaign were man
Accordingly Desk Sergeant Hcrg
sten and Falrol Driver Voss slipped
into their armor and manned the
wagon. Nearing the place they tied
the team and crept quietly up the
alley. A number of citizens had been
notified of-what was going on and
when the otTicers approached' they
were stealthily hailed and the burglar
pointed out to them. There he was,
his body swaying to and fro as he
balanced unsteadily on the slippery
side of the. roof. Hither he had not
been able to break open the window
or he was casting about for a con
venient way to get down after having
ransacked the house.
' ltnrn Some Powder
Cocking their guns the officers
marched out from behind the barn.
"Come off that roof!" roared Officer
Bergsten. The fellow pretended not
"Come down or we'll shoot," was
the next command.
The burglar made a move. Appar
ently he was about to unlimber his
artillery, and without'further ado the
IHdiceme.n opened nip on him.
Several rounds were fired, but it
was no,: use. He wouldn't come down.
The crowd was growing and decisive
.action .was highly desirable.
If you don t come down I'll come
up after you." Officer Itergsten said,
and with sublime courage he rushed
forward under cover of a fusillade of
shots from his companion.
As he nea red the house he was seen
to " stop ami stare. "Is he dead?"
someone asked. . LUit the officer did
not reply, and after a moment he and
Patrol Driver. Voss slipped away and
returned to the station.
Then it was learned that the scare
had been caused by the sheet iron top
of the chimney which iad been blown
off by the wind and hung dangling by
me wire mat nau oraceu it. An ex
amination of the pipe today revealed
the fact that, there were no holes in
it. Hence it is presumed that the offi
cers were firing blanks.
Two Real ICai-glaries Committed.
The residence of ,1. V. Sweeney,
1022 Twentv-first street was burglar
ized Saturday evening while Mr. and
Mrs. Sweeney were making a call.
The thief entered the house through a
rear window which he pried open.
The entire place was ransacked and a
Smith & Wesson hainmerless revol
ver, about $" in change, a box of ci
gars and a Masonic pin were taken..'
The same party who entered the
Sweeney residence is believed to have
leeii the one who effected an
entrance into the home of Mrs. Ella
Ilggins, ?:7 Twenty-first street earli
er in the evening. He climbed a porch
and was heard prowling around on
the upper floor. The police were call
ed, but before the patrol wagon ar
rived the fellow escaped. Nothing was
One Hobo Rob Another.
A couple of hoboes were allowed to
sleep by the furnace at the water
works last night and one of them
took advantage of the opportunity, to
rise early and depart with the cap
and shoes belonging to the other.
The victim of the theft was in a bad
way and the police were called to
search for the man with the missing
wearables. Officer Ilergsten went out
on the case, but did not get results.
.Instead of finding what he was
looking for the officer found a man
wandering about in the cold with
what, appeared to be a bad case of
delirium tremens. He said he wanted
to go to Davenport, but that there
were parties after him trying' to drug
him. He asked the officer to accom
pany him. The bluecoat did so, but
steered him into the station.
There the man continued his rav
ings. He appears to be a mechanic
and is dressed in the ordinary garb of
a machinist or railroad man when on
duty, lie tore up a portion of the
floor of the cell that was loose and
built, a barricade for protection
against his supposed pursuers. He
gave his name at. George Bittner and
says his home is at New Sharon,
