Halma Newquist, the Washington,
Iowa, youth who virtually made a pres
ent of $45 to two strangers in Rock Is
land yesterday afternoon, has not
found any trace of the men nor the
money, and is not likely to locate eith
er. The manner in which the strangers
secured the young man's money was
really too simple to be called a bunco
game. He was walking along Fifth av
enue near Twenty-seventh street, when
one of the men engaged him in conver
sation. He told where he came from,
where he lived, and other facts of a per
sonal nature. He was asked if he knew
"old man Adams" in Oklahoma, where
ho had recently been working. He said
he did -and the other immediately in
formed the Washington lad that he
was a nephew of Adams. They were
having a very friendly conversation
when the second man stepped up and
asked the first if he had 'secured his
grips yet. He had not, and said some
thing about not being able to get a
check cashed. He would attend to it
at once and they could then "start to
doing business." Then as though by
inspiration, he turned to Newquist and
asked if he had any cash With him.
Newquist reached in his pocket and
pulled out $45. "That will do," said
the man, "let me take that, and you
go to the Adams express office and
watch the two valises." The young
man went to the express office, but the
two strangers went the other way. Of
course there were no valises, but it
was over an hour before he notified
the police headquarters.
