POLICEMAN JOHN BOWES HAS
ENCOUNTER IN ROCK ISLAND
Policeman John Bowes had a pistol
duel with two supposed crooks in the
Rock Island railroad yards at 3 o'clock
this morning, but no one was wounded.
Bowes first saw the men walking
north on Thirty-eighth. Bowes follow
ed the men in the yards, as he was sus
picious of their actions. He caught up
with them, surprising them by waiting
behind a box car and waiting until they
came along. When he commanded them
to halt they started to run.
The officer hit one of the men in the
back with his club, .whereupon the fel
low drew his revolver and fired. Bowes
returned the shot, but fell while run
ning by stumbling on a rail. The men
dodged among the cars and escaped.
Only the two sheits were fired.
