Companion of Man Shot by Thugs
on Freight Car Last Night
May Have Been Murdered Also
Stowaways Tell How Train
Was Held TJp.
What has become of the young man
who was with Leonard C. Dare, who
was killed on top of a freight car
ne ar North Town Junction last night?
This is a question Coroner U. G.
Williams and the police are trying to
answe r. From the tales of men who
were on the train from North Dakota
and who saw pare at various times,
they have learned that a friend was
traveling with the young man and
the two were seen together shortly
before the hold-up. jSince then nothing
has been seen of Dare's friend. As'
several shots were fired, while only
one to ok effect on Dare's body, the
officers fear that, his partner was
killed and that he rolled from the
roof of the car to the ground. A
search is being made for the body.
George Bennett of Chicago came to
police headquarters this morning and
said that he had been held up by the
men who killed-Dare and that he lost
$6. H e was riding on the train and
a w men board the train at Elk
. They rode on top of the cars
until Anoka was passed, when they
went to the car in which Bennett was
riding, and, pointing a revolver thru
the ice hole in the top of the car,
commanded him to climb to the roof.
H e lost no time in complying, and
while one of the men kept him cov
ered, another went thru his pockets.
The other thr ee sto od by and jested.
The robbe rs then ordered him to
climb back into the car, -while another
stowaway was brought out and
robbed. : - .
Married Man Gets Off Easy.
In this way they "worked" the car.
Then, after warning the men t6 keep
inside, they went to the next oar,
where they found Edward McFarland
of Tucso n, Ariz., and Q. G. Burcham
of Blairsburg, Iowa. Both were called
to the roof and robbed. Burcham
lost 90 cents and a gold watch:
"How does it happen that you a re
coming from Dakota and yet have
on ly 90 cents?" asked one of the men.
"Well, I sent the money home to my
wife and children," replied the victim.
"I have the receipts in my pocket, as
well as the picture of- my- children."
"If he is a married man," put in a
second bandit, "give him back his
money," and the : valuables / were
handed back. , w ,
While one of the bandits was hold
ing a gun at McFarland's head, h is
mask slipped off and revealed a boyish
face, evidently that of a man riot more
than 20 years old. McFarland
"What are you laughing at?" asked
"You ought to have fixed that be
fore you came up," said McFarland.
"You shut your mouth and get back
down in that car, or I'll blow the top
of your head off," said the robber, giv*
ing his revolv er a flourish.
"Here is 6 cents that you' missed,"
said McFarland as he turned to climb
down into the car. "That makes 95
cents in all."
McFarland and Burcham climbed
back, while the. robbers proceeded to
the nfext car," oh which Dare and his
partner were riding. They were gone
but a minute or two when shouts and
several pistol shots were heard. A
little later the five men dropped from
the moving train, which after going
two miles further, stopped at North
Town Junctio n.
Dare Found Dying on Roof of Car.
A t North Town Junction a brake
man went to investigate and found a
man lying face downward on top of
the car. H e was still alive and the
car was set out, while a switch engine
was sent to the scene and the police
notified. The car was brought to the
city, where it was met by the North
Side patrol wagon and the man was
hurried to the city hospital.
A t the hospital it was found that
the man had been shot, the bullet
taking effect between the eyes, while
h is skull was fractured by a heavy
blow. The surgeons saw ttiey could
do nothing for him and, shortly after
midnight, he died.

people of small incomes iThe Minne
apolis Provident Fund is such a plan
operating along well-established busi
ness lines. Provident funds encour
ftge the poor to .save their earnings
and take ah important step towards
self-support and independence. The
association will be glad to afford any
responsible charity, church or school,
te opportunity of establishing a
branch of the fund. I n addition to
this, it is essential that a collector of
savings call upon .-depositors regularly

the ability and the willingness to care
for one self and to assist tho se who
will, to provide for emergencies. The
custom of regularity and of sacrificing
a present for a future good, the in
terest in the community that- comes
with the consciousne ss of even small
possessions, all tend to improve habits
and character. Careless and improvi

the u se of similar funds. ,The suc

That Sum Will Relieve the Destitute In
St. Charles. '
Mayor James "C. . Haynes received a
brief note this morning from Mayor John
J. Speeter of St. Charles, Minn., in which'
he states that it will take 566,000 to re
relieve the destitute in "St. Charles. That
is all he says, and to Mayor Haynes the
communication is unsatisfactory. There
is no information as to the number of
persons in distress, the character of aid
required, the plan of distribution nor any
information as to the manner of sending
the contributions from this city.
It is likely that Private Secretary George
P. Douglas will be sent tp St. Charles to
obtain the necessary information, so that
the relief work may be undertaken Jn an
intelligent manner. ... )$&P$L .^*
