Allen, seventeon years old, of 188 Bal
tlo Streot, Brooklyn, lt developed yes?
terday, probably wlll go to college in?
stead of to Jall. ln conseituence of
hls havlng committed a theft hls ambi
tlon to becomo verred ln the sclences,
especially <n wlreless telegraphy and
other branches of electricity, became
known to hls emplo,irer and to Cniel
Maglstrate Kempner, of Brooklyn.
Although the youngster was held ln
$500 ball last evening to aWalt the
action of the grand jury, he was sent
to tha Children's Soclety for the nlg/lt,
and an effort wlll be made to have ins
sentence suspended and to have hlm
sent to college.
Allen waa arrested ln the afternoon
by Detectlve Clark on the complaint
of Thomas Lamb, & drugglst, of 84
Court Street. The cnarge was tfcsat on
October 29 the boy took J55 from a
drawer in an open safo ln the drug
store. Allen has worked for Lamb for
more than a year. He was taken be?
fore Maglstrate Kempner and stralght
way pleaded gullty.
The story \pf the youngster's devo
tlon to sclence was then told. Allen
had been readlng about wlreless tele?
graphy and' studylng electricity as
much as he could from a few booka
and such small pieces of apparatus as
he could buy. He ls BmaU for hla
age, but has the head of a student.
He does not havo the appearance of
a thlef, and his employer spoke hlgh
ly of hls Industry and hls obedlonce.
For many months Allen had wanted
a wlreless apparatus. He lnqulred as
to the cost, but learned lt was beyond
hls means. He read about how to
construct the apparatus cheaply, and
flgured that about $60 would be suffl
cient to buy the necessary nnterlals.
He did not have the money, however,
and when he was taken into- court, he
"I have been tempted many tlmes
to take money. I saw lt ln the office
where it was handy. I trled to save
money so I could put up a wlreless
apparatus on our roof at home. I could
not get enough together. I saw the
money ln the drawer In the safe tho
other day and so I took lt. I spent
$20 of it for batterles, and took them
to the roof.
"I ejepected' to spend more money
within a day or two for wire and
other materlals that I needed. I wanti
ed to learn wlreless telegraphy and
see lf I could plck messages out of
the sky llke Jack Blnns did.
"Thls ls not the flrst time I have
been tempted. I took a little blt of
money twlce before. It did not amount
to much, and I spent lt for pieces of
apparatus. I never spent any of thf
money I stole except to help me ln my
Lamb was much lmpre6sed by the
boy's story. He sald to the magls?
"I hope lt wlll not be necessary to
send this boy to jall. I am wlllinn
to wlthdraw the charge against hlm.
and I wlll do everything ln my power
to have the sentence suspended. If I
can get hlm free I shall gladly glve
money to have him sent to college.
I have always found hlm obedlent, and
I think a chap so eager to learn
Shoujd Un encouraged."
The ccnirt felt obliged to hold tho
boy, but arranged that he should be
sent to the Children's Soclety. so the
youngster would not have to go to
