As the journey took him further
northward, the col became more in
tense, and during the latter stages of
the journey, the launch and its occu
pant had a terriflc battle with float
ing ice, which at times threatened to
put a stop to all further progress.
Hart narrowly escaped death in
stemming the rapids at Hamburg, Cal

from the craft into the icy waters. It
was only after a heroic struggle with
the swift current that he was enabled
to regain the boat safely.

That the four bandits who robbed
the SiHis bank Saturday night and
v. ade a successful getaway with
Sl.'fO in cash, after beating the pro
pric'or almost to death, are all local
men is the belief of the police, who
toda;- announced that Thomas Jeffer
son, the man who was captured and
is held at the county jail under $1,000
bonds, was arrested in Rock Island
only a week ago, being subsequently
dismissed, as nothing could be found

Jefferson was at that time picked
up as a suspicious character, being
f- isnected of complicity in various rob
beiies which have been perpetrated in
Reck Island, and was "sweated" in
I Chief lirinn's office. The man, al
though taciturn, was able to put up
a straight story, and mentioned sev-;
' eral Rock Island parties with whom'
! he was acquainted, thus making his
; statements good. The fact that Jef
I'erson has been hanging around Rock
Isla'id for some time confiwus the be-j
lief that his three accomplices were
aibo men who had been making their
home in this city for several months.
STII.I. TriTVRX. j
It was suspected for a time, thati
the bank robbery had been "pulled";
b outside men, presumptively from
Galesburg, but the fact that Jefferson'
bus been around for several months,1
leads to the belief that the job was1
handled by local talent. The prisoner;
has absolutely refused to say a word
in regard to the matter, although '
when picked up he was wearing an
overcoat, which was later identified
as belonging to Lee Crowder, the
Pilvis banker, and a number of pri
vate papers were found in the pockets,
substantiating the identification. The
i'olice have but little hope of obtain
in?, a confession from the man, which
it.' tilt be used in capturing the three
bandits who are still at large.
