Joseph Smith, the young lad who was
injured by falling from the train at Deloit
last week, is recovering nicely. He is
showing a cheerfulness and patience that
is helping him. Nevertheless, he has a
hard row to hoe when he gets well, as it
will doubtless be a long time before he
fully recovers and his hand will always be
badly crippled. Many of the old-tima
neighbors of the family have been to see
him at the city hospital and we understand
there is a move on foot to provide a place
for him in this county when he is able to
go to work.

Deputy U. S. Marshal W. J. McAh
ren returned iast week after his fruit
less-quest for Green, the fugitive bank
er of Dow City. Mr. McAhren wae
deeply disappointed and chagrined at
not getting his man, but he feels that
both be and County Attorney Klinker
did all they could to secure Green and
to bring him back to justice.
McAhren expressed himself ae
surprised at the accuracy and the speed
with which THE REVIEW had obtained
all the facts of the case as presented
in our last issue.
I got to Sacraraen'o the 29th," said
the U. S, Marshal, "and got the neces
sary papers, just as soon as possible

As soon a9 I had my papers 1

Winters to tell them I was coming. It
was then I got the first word that Green
had gone. It fairly knocked the breath
out. of me. I did not know what to
think. It was the worst $1.35 cents

to Winters, There did not seem
to be much use of it, but I thought I
mieht get some track of Green. Win
ters is a town of about 1100 on the
main line ef the Southern-Pacific, about
sixty or seventy miles from Sacramen
to. When I got there and saw Marshal
Overhouse I felt like kicking him all
around the town. Later, when I found
out all about it I began to feel sorry
for the man. He is an old man was
elected marshal last spring and was
not on to his job like an old officer
would have been. And besides this,
Green had the whole town hypnotized.
They are genuine Californians out
there. If they like a man they like
him all over when they get down on
bim they want to hang him right away.
The people were mad enough to have
banged Green had he been brought

Green to go to Winters, supplied the
money for him to move on, and leased
him tbe big eighty room hotel of the
town for three years, with privilege of
live years."
'As a hotel man Green was a suc
cess. In the three months he cleared
from $200 to $300 per month. He was
kind-bearted, a good talker—everybody
liked him. It was a prohibition town,
and this was just what Sid said he
wanted for the sake of his family."
"It was a great church .town and
this was just what Green was looking
"When the marshal received word to
watch Sid Green he could not believe
his senses when the order came to
arrest him the marshal had the whole
town up in arms. Tne banker, the
clergy, the leading citizens, protested
against the outrage. Green said he
was wanted as a witness in a civil case
and that the criminal charge was only
a ruse to get him back to Iowa. Be
lieve him? They just fell over them
selves to believe him. The banker
said he would stake his last dollar on
Green honesty. And so it came about
that Marshal Overhouse wa9 over-per
suaded and failed to do his duty, and
let him go about the town just as he

I do not think the marshal was dis

Winters, July 29—Last Tuesday
S. better known "Sid" Green, was
placed under arrest by the Town Mar
shal on a telegraphic request, from the
authorities at Dow City, Iowa.
Green was wanted for fradulent
banking. He was president of the
Exchange Bank, which failed in April,
1904: he was also beaviiy interested in
the Green Cattle Company, operating
principally in Routt County, Co).
Green came to Winters three months
ago with: good recommendations and
was made manager of the principal
hotel, changing its name to Green's
Hotel," and with his family had be
come quite popular. When arrested
the Town Marshal was advised to allow
him his liberty, as Green immediately
sent a despatch to Dow City saying he

would come back without any trouble or
extraditi papers.
Oie-ira family had gone into the
mountains about twelve miles the day
he was arrested and since then he has
been permitted to drive out to aefr
them each day. Last night he went
out as usual but failed to return, and it
is thought he drove to Elmira and took
the train for the north.
Green protested his innocence of any
wrong doing and said he was really
wanted in Iowa as a witness in a clvifc
suit but could not be compelled to go
there only by a criminal charge,
He was driven to some railroad point
in the night by his fifteen year old son,

The Dow City officers telephoned^
this morning from Sacramento that
they had stopped off there to secure
extradition papers, and, of course
were non pluBed on receipt of the new»
that their bird had flown. Evidentljr
they took no stock in Green's promised
return voluntarily, or they would not
have stopped for tbe papers with
which to take him back aa a prisioner.
Marshal Overhouse did all he could
when it was too late to do anything..
Here is one of the postals he sent out.'

But Sid had a big night'* start of

or out to sea by that time. I stayed
two days but saw the uselessoess oJ
sta\ ing longer or of spending a lot o£
money to catch my man when if he had
escaped from California my papers
would be no good."
"I saw Mrs. Green, she isalady a»
she always has been and I feft sorry
for her. She was heart-broken over
it all. While Green was there he was
tbe most popular man in town but the
minute he left and people found out
the truth about him thev were so mad
thev took t.heir spite out on the family.
M-s Green told me something of their
life during the past year and it was
pitiful. She said she had repeatedly
urged Sid to give himself up ana that

dispatch saying he would come bacir
when wanted but as tbe time grew
nearer bis resolution grew weaker an£
he ran away."
bops we will get bim some time
but tbe jig is up for the present." I
feel however that Klinker did all Jie
could and I do not know what more I
cou dt have done. After Overhouse
wired that "your man is in jail" what
coaid you think expect except that he
was in jail."
It was as clear a case of "three shell"
game as I ever saw worked and when
we picked our shell Green was under
the other one. No plans have been
made for further efforts but I think we
will get Sid Green yet."
