Ott the strength of this the father asked for part of the blood money and later filed a claim for part of the reward with the railroad. SHE THINKS COLE MIGHT BE HER SON sORROWING MOTHER WRITES REY NOLDS CONCERNING ANTECE DENTS OF TRAIN ROBBER. Chief Reynolds received a rather pa thetic letter ihen he opened his mail this morning. It was written by Mrs. R. F, Cole of Tioga, Pa., who seemed anxious to know if George Cole, the self-con fessed trainrobber, is her son by that namne. The mother writes: "Somewhere on the face of God's earth I have a son by the sasme name as the young man who has confessed to the robbery of the Bur lington trail near your city. It may be that my boy did it. I hope he is not my son, but would you kindly inform me as to the man's antecedents ?" Chief Reynolds replied that George Cole's parents both lived in Butte for years, and that his mother is now dead. This will be soothing news to the old mother back East who doesn't know of the whereabouts of her own child, except that "he is somewhere on God's earth."
