BOY BANDIT IS
SHOT IN DUEL
WITH POLICE
Giles Humphrey, city detective, lies at the city hospital
with a soft-nosed bullet flattened against his thigh bone.
In another cot, a few feet away, is Abe Turner, alias Jim
McCoy, who, according to Captain of Detectives Tennant, was
sent to Monroe reformatory two years ago for robbery, for one
to 15 years. At the time of his first arrest he gave his age
as 18.
The two engaged in a thrilling revolver duel late Tues
day night. For Turner, the boy, according to the assertion
of Captain of Detectives Tennant, is the daring street car
bar.dit whose exploits during the past four months have
driven the police to distraction.
Detectives laid a cunning trap for him. A car crew had
been held up on the Mt. Baker line Saturday night. The
bandit's methods were identically the same as they have been
on the ether occasions, sometimes two or three times a week.
A lonely spot near the end of the line. A curt order to the
conductor and motorman to "throw up your hands. A
hurried search. Exit, bandit. _
So detectives, armed and vigilant, lay in wait Sunday
night and Monday night, near the terminals of all city car
lines. And then, Tuesday night, they got their man.
• But," said Detective Humphrey today, as he glanced
over at the other white cot, "he's such a kid.
Turner had emptied his gun at Humphrey, and had tried
to escape. Detective Ralph Jones tired at him as he ran.
Jones' £un barked three times, and the boy crumpled up and
went down. Two of the bullets took effect. One broke his
right leg. The other penetrated his side. Doctor* at the
hospital today thought he would recover. But it had been
a close squeak.
Humphrey and Jones hid themselves in the brush Tues
day night near the end of the Beacon Hill car line. So, too
it developed, did Turner. About 9:45 a car approached, anc
came to a stop. The coast seemed clear. The boy stepped
out, his face masked with a handkerchief, and "stuck up"
the conductor, W. E. Jones, and Motorman E. R. Davis in
the usual breezy style of the bandit whose methods have be
come so well known to the police.
He lined them up beside the car, with their hands in the
1 air.
And just then the officers strolled out of their hiding
| place. The boy saw them coming. Humphrey spoke to him
Turner wheeled and fired pointblank. Humphrey shot anc
missed. Again the flash of the boy's revolver, and again, anc
Humphrey went down. The boy ran. Humphrey emptied
his weapon and then, lying prostrate, threw the gun at the
fleeing bandit.
Detective Jones had gone around the other side of the
car. He opened fire on the boy. Turner shot back at him
twice.
"I fired three times. I guess, before I got him," said Jones.
On the way to the hospital. Hum
phrey and the boy exchanged con
fidences on how It felt to be shot.
Both agreed that It wan rough bus
iness.

ON MAIDEN TRIP
HAMMI'RO, .Tune 11.—The great
new Hamburg-American liner lm
perator started from here tcday on
her maiden voyage across the At
lantic. She carried a huge quota
of passengers, every Inch of ac
commodation being taken.
Detective Tells Story
"1 Just got here from Portland,"
said the boy," and was up against
it. 1 was only there a few days.
I Came up from San Francisco. I
came from Kngland. but 1 won't tell
j you about my folks."
Further questioning failed to
make the boy tell any more about
himself.
"I don't feel very enthusiastic
over having to shoot down an 18-
y ear-old boy," said Detective
Jones, as he looked over his Sav
age automatic, while sitting on
'the side of his bed this morning.
"Old the boy die?" he asked,
and. on l>eing told that Turner was
still alive, he expressed hope that
I the youngster would pull through.
Watch Cars Come In
"I don't want to tell any police
secrets, but we were out there
waiting for something like this to
happen. From our hiding place in
the coal shed we watched while
the conductor of each car reported
in from the call box.
• j "Across the street. In a real os
-1 tate office, a bunch of young fel
lows were singing rag-time songs,
and at 9:40 they started for home,
j They were hardly out of sight
: when this car came in. and a mo
ment later we saw the conductor
and motorman standing alongside
of the curb, with their hands in the
air, and a man, who had walked
lout of the brush, talking to them.
Talks of Shooting
"Humphrey circled to the left
and I walked slowly across the
street towards them. When I was
about half way across, Humphrey
and the robber opened fire at each
other. They fired about three
shots apiece, and then the robber
I started to run back of the car.
"In the darkness, 1. saw another
man at the head of the car and
; realised that this must be a pas
senger. or someone the robber did
i not know, or he would have retreat*
[ ed in that direction instead of run
ning so close to me.
"I fired once as Tie passed and
i twice as he started nwaj He fell
just as he reached the curb.
"The gun I. shot him with is a
new one. Just bought It yesterday.
One of the first US Savage guus
I made, t guess,"
Judge Albertson today overruled
| the demurrer of the county com
missioners to the complaint filed
by the Barber Vsphalt company. In
! which the county is restrained
from receding on the contract to
pave the North Trunk district
partly with warrenlte. This leaves
the restraining order In force.
