Chief Sexton Does His First
A CONFIDENCE MAN COKNEKED.
A Stranger W1m iilvos His Name as It.
(irabnin, A pprpheadod AVlill Working
tli Itntk Island l'Hseii;r Trainit
ricked the Wroiijf Nun for a Sucker
Now tn Jail in Itavenporr.
Chief of Police Sexton, and Otlicer
Wafer, of Davenport, took a confi
dence man into camp this morning,
that from all appearances has been
working the C, H. I. P. passenger
trains between this city and Daven
port for some time. A Muscatine
man giving hi name as Shadrick
Wilford. on his way home from Chi
cago early this mottling, was picked
out by the smooth stranger as a vic
tim, but he was fooled. After the train
upon which Wilford was riding had
left the lioek Island passenger depot
in this city, he was approached by a
well dressed gentleman with full
beard and rold spectacles, who took
the same seat wit'; him. The stran
ger was not long in engaging Mr
Wilford in conversation and later
casually inquired where he was go
ing. In answer the latter replied
that his destination was Fairport.
Tlie SumeOlil Ciame.
The stranger then aked if he lived
there and upon receiving an answer
from Mr. Wilford that he did not but
was going to stop there to see a
brother he volunteered the informa
tion that he was also a resident of t hat
place and owned the only store that
was there. He also told" Mr. Wilford
that he had jut bought a large bill
of goods and was returning home.
At this juncture a second gentleman
came up and presented a to the
supposed Fairport More keeper for
the goods he was Mippo-cd to have
bought. lie. however, made a
pretense of not wishing to lie
troubled with tin' bill, but as the
creditor insi-ted. he said that he
could pav it and thereupon produced
al.(ii bill. The 1 roditor could not
change tlie bill, of course, and the
supposed Fairport merchant turned
to Mr. Wilford and tried to borrow
the amount from him. The latter
was not a verdant as he looked,
however, and so be didn't have the
nionev to "-pare. They both tried to
work him then, out he finally told
them that they couldn't gull him in
on that game, and they both quit
him verv ijiiicklv and got off the
train ju-t before the slough bridge
was leached. When Mr. Wilford
reached Davenport he notified the
police who immediately telephoned
to Chief Si -t on of the occurrence.
( iiiiTctiii .!t.T Tlii'jn.
The chief within a slmrt time
was at the lioek Island passen
ger depot, where he met the man
whom they had tried to work, and
obtained a description of the strang
ers. Following out what little clues
he could find, he soon made up his
mind that the pair he was looking
for were in Davenport, and he caught
a wot bound train and went over
there. There he met Otlicer Wafer
and later found that his man had
been in the Kimball house. liy keep
ing a close watch, the officers were
tinallv rewarded bv seeing their man
come up and board an eat bound
train for thi city. probably to spot an
other stranger for his little game, lie
entered tlie smoking car and the offi
cers followed him. one going in at each
end. They immediately went at
their man who said that he was a
printer from Omaha and when jues
tioned by Chief Sexton he denied
having been here at all but tinallv
admitted having been here last night,
but said that the two men who were
with him were strangers to him as
he had just met them. When pressed
closely lie became nervous and tinallv
said he had been over here early in
t lie morning. He was arrested and
taken back to Davenport where he
was locked 11 p. When he was search
ed at police headquarters nothing ex
cept some .skeleton keys was found
that was suspicious. The two other
strangers w ho were helping him have
probablv made good their escape-.

The Kplseopal Convention In Session at
The sixteenth annual convention
ef the eliocese of Quincy assembleel
in St. Paul's church,' at Peoria, Tues
day evening. Ht. Kev. Alex Burgess,
S. T. D. bishop, presiding, anel Kev.
Dr. Kueld, of Knoxville, secretary.
Last evening the service was for
the Quincy branch of the Woman's
Auxiliary to the boarel of missions.
The speakers were Kev. Dean K. F.
Sweet, D. D., of Kock Island; Kev.
W. II. Moore, of Quincy; Kev. John
McKim, of Osaka. Japan, missionary
bishop-elect of Yeddo. The Woman's
Auxiliary of the Protestant Episcopal
church, was organize-el in FS71. Fer
the year ending September 1, 192,
the total amount of money raised
was $154,3-23.72. The work extends
in 51 elioceses and in nine missionary
jurisdictions. The total amount, er
value of boxes meaning merchan
elises for the? ye-ar was !j-H7,724.21.
The total in nionev and boxe-s
amounted to 352,047."y3. The total
work for the Woman's Auxiliary for
21 years freim 171 to 1S'J2, amounted
to "$3,023. 505.00. It will be se-en
from these few facts that the
Woman's Auxiliary is doing a noble
work. It is separate from the regu
lar church missionary work anil the
two. if aelde'il together, would reach
up in the millions.
