".For ttve years i worked alone, 'lilt ing' wherever I could, with little dan ger of detection. Then I became Inter ested In the show business and wss ad vertiser and promoter of circuses and street carnivals. I married In Cali fornia and did well for a long time. I waa In the show business for twelve years, and during that time traveled from one state to another. I have pro moted circuses and street carnivals In Knoxvllle and many other elites, as well ss small towns. Ths last show I was with was the Argyle Shows tour leers ago. Many Robberies. "Three years ago I came to Knox vllle and settled down aa an awning mechanic as a subterfuge, snd thievery waa my occupation. I hsvs repaired awning for practically avery business house on uay street, and other principal business streets. I did that so 1 could he In stores and observe the stock as to color, quality, quan tity, value and location. "I knew, from the wsy merchants here handle their stock, amounts could be stolen without their actual loss. I have tsken goods with a total retail value of between 16,000 and 10.000 In three years, but many times loss was not suspected: In other cases loss was not reported to the poilcs, and proh ably In no case wss sn owner shle to state to the police the exact amount of goods taken. "My nrst and last robbsrles In Knox vllle were from the Gillespie, Shields oomnsny, wholesale clothing. I would tskewiults of clothes Hnd remove all labels and tags. All evidence" of owner ship wss then eliminated. Wool Is wool, and It Is only a rare exrtert who can detect clothing made by one nrni trom that made by another. In order to establish ownership of unlabeled goods "I did not receive more than H,WM cash lor the goods I stole here. 1 re celved about one-third the wholesale value of a suit. I disposed of most op these suits hy selling them to sgsnts who transported them to nearby towns and sold them. Hereditary ailments made n neces sary years ago lor doctors to sduiin- ister opiates to remedy excrultlsting pains, ana eventually i iw-aiue a urua addict. 'Unpe' at twenty-flve cents n bottle could once be purchased at re tall. Now that many dollars will not buy a half bottle. I have paid In Knoxvllle suits to tho value of IIMI for one shot or morphine to ease my pains. These stories about hnoxvlllB belli a city easy for getting dope' are not true. There are seivsn bootleggers from whom It Is easy to secure 'dopn, but I honestly believe there are no doc tors or druggists Hi ths city who would illegally sell dope, for love of money."
