K0THINO TANGIBLE IN SOCK
ISLAND DYNAMITE CASE
Three suspects have been arrested
by Roc-k Island railway detectives
who are engaged in trying to run
down the gang of blackmailers who
threatened to blow up the railway if
$1,000 was not forthcoming. The
men who have been arrested have
been taken to the otlice of the super
intendent over the passenger station
in Des Moines and subjected to a
sweating process. In each case there
seemed nothing to warrant placing
them in jail and they were according
ly released. ' -
The detectives and other officials
are more active in this case than at
any time since one week ago,
when it was expected to . spring
the trap that would result in the
capture of the entire gang. A dozen
detectives are devoting their time to
the case and none of the precautions
started a week ago has been discon
tinued. Section hands, armed to the
teeth, still patrol the track day and
night, while armed guards accompany
each limited train. In advance of
each of the hitler trains a solitary en
gine is invariably run day and night
through the "danger belt," as western
Iowa has come to be known, and hope
of ultimate detection of the criminals
was never greater than today.
The wounded prisoner at Mercy
hospital in Ies Moines is still the ob
ject of great speculation and constant
inquiry. Despite repeated and stud
ied efforts on the part of the detec
tives to induce the man to talk, he
tries to give the impression that he is
a dumb man. He has betrayed, how
ever, that this is not true, on several
occasions. His motive for silence is
a question that can only be solved
when he is well enough to be dis
charged from the hospital. His atti
tude nt that time will then determine
whether he will be set free or trans
ferred to jail.

TO CONVERT THE WARE
PRINTING PLANT INTO CASH
At the meetinj- last night of the
creditors of J. W. Warr, the Moltne
defaulter, a committee was appointed
to institute proceedings to have the
printing establishment, of which Warr
was at the head, declared bankrupt.
The purpose is to convert this plant
into cash before it deteriorates in
value, the money from the sale to be
held in trust by a committee from the
Moline Building & Loan association
for those having preferred claims
against Warr. The latter is to have
his preliminary hearing tomorrow af
ternoon on the charge of embezzle
ment. It is thought he will le physi
cally able by that time to leave his
home and appear for trial.
