John Joseph was arrested last night
by Deputy Sheriff Walter Kittilsen oa
a charge of embezzlement preferred
against him by George Peters. The
officers had bean loo!; in j; tor Joseph
for some time hut had been unable 'o
locate' him. He used to run a shoe
shiaing stand in the alhy west of tlu
Harper bouc building and last night
the deputy sheriff went into the shine
parlor to obtain information. Whil;
the boy was shining the oncer's
shoes, he (the officer) asked him sev
eral questions cor.rirnmg Joseph. Jo
seph unexpectedly nut his head into
the door, and the hoy who was'shining
shoes said, "Htllo. John." Mr. Kittil
sen asked if that was Joseph and on
being informed that it was he started
after him. He only had one shoe
shined at the time, but he paid his
nickel and was soon on the trail. He
cornered Joseph on the second floor
of the Harper and arrested him.

Peters was injured a year ago while
employed at the Rock Island house, j
j ne ma lodgement or tne notei gave
him $1,150 in settlement lor his in
juries. Joseph and Peters are Syrians
and were close friends.' When Peters
received thla'mony from the hotel peo
ple Joseph advised him not to put it
into the bank and suggested that Pat
ers give him the money. Peters gave
him $900 of the amount and put the
rest of it Into a Davenporl bank. Jo
seph bought various articles for Peters
and instead of paying for them, as was
supposed, he charged them and pock
eted the money. Besides taking the
$300, it is charged, he forged a chock
for $S0 of the amount which was in
the bank. In all he got away with
$9S0. Peters had known for some time
that he was being fleeced, but becausa
of his friendship he hesitated about
prosecuting. Joseph will' be given a
hearing in Justice J. H. Cleland'a
court tomorrow morning. H. A. Weld
Is attorney for Peters.

A collision between an automobil
and a loaded express wagon took
place last evening at 0:30 o'clock at
Fifth avenue and Thirty-first street,
and as a result the driver of the ex
press wagon is rather painfully in
jured and is desirous of having the
driver of the auto arrested in case he
can learn his identity.
The expressman, James D. Knittle, j
was driving to the Rock Island depot!
with his wagon well loaded with I
trunks. He had-, arrived wilhin half'
a block of the station and was getting,
leady to turn his horse into the drive-;
way to the baggage depot when, with
out warning, an auto came :; from ths
rear and hit tne wagon.
. Trunk Fa 11m on Driver.
The automobile apparently was not
much injured by the collision, but th;
wagon, which belonged to Spencer Ac
Trefz, was wrecked. The trunks were
thrown right and left, one of them
landing on the left foot of the express
man and severely injuring it. Mr.
Knittle is hobbling around with the
aid of a pair of crutches today, but it
will be sometime before he is able to
work again. He claims that the col
lision was entirely the fault of the
driver of the autojuobile and he is try
ing to find out who the man was.
