TWO TEN-DOLLAR BILLS
AND SATCHEL “NABBED;”
LOCKED UP BY POLICE

Mutt And Woman From \ew York
Jla?* Dispute And Woman Leaves
Satchel And .Money On Street
Horses and even cows and dogs
have been ‘’arrested” here besides
people, but never before yesterday
j afternoon was there an “arrest” of a
| satchel and two ten-dollar bills.
The story is us unusual as it is
j novel. Yestefday forenoon a man and
4
woman arrived in Annapolis in a
i touring car from Now York. They
took luncheon at a Main street res
taurant, where, probabjv. a discus
sion arose as to making the return
trip to Gotham in the car, or by train.
Borne say the man wanted the woman
to return by train, and evidently in
an effort to press this, lie gave her
the satchel from the tar, ami two ten
dollar bills from his pocket, Loth of
which she refused to accept."' * [
There were words, and th n soma
more words, and the man left the
woman on Main street corner, op
posite the Annapolis Banking and
Trust Company, while he went into
Hotel Maryland. Still refusing to ac
cept the satchel and money site placed
both on the sidewalk .and left the
scene. .
Passers by gazed at the satchel, be- i
lieving it to contain dynamite. or !
something equally deadly, would not i
touch it, and gave it a wide berth as I
they did the money, thinking the real;
to be “phony.” Finally a Baltimore!
man came along, and as “people from !
the Monumental City are afraid of
nothin;!” so 'tis said. The Haiti-j
morean picked up the satchej and
money, took them to the police sta-]
tion, had them “arrested” and locked i
ut). Here they were “held without
charge” until called for and claimed
by the owners, Mr. and Mrs. V. Vig
nct, of New York, who appeared on
the scene later in the afternoon. The
satchel and money who took them im
mediately to the police, explaining the
circumstances of having found them
on the street.

INMATE DISAPPEARS
'j prT*—
Colored Man Missing From The
i County Home For 2 Weeks
j . __________
SEARCH FOR HIM FAILS
George Jones, a colored inmate who
disappeared from the Anne Arundel
County Home two weeks ago. is still
missing. The man when last seen
was wearing a midshipman’s cap
gray trousers and blue shirt. He was
barefoot, and his footsteps were
traced as far as the school house ah 'Ut
a mile and a half from the home,
where all trace was lost.
Jones was about 60 yars old. an i
had only been an inmate of the Hor.e
a Qiort tune. He appeared c> 1 ->ll
light when admitted, save ‘hit he
was subject to epileptic fits, howev \
his mind did not seem to be unbat
f anced. In a single day lie gave evi
dence of mental trouble, and the over
seer of the Home was tilt.- nex; aa
after bis disappearance to have b
two physicians inquire into his case
He disappeared about midnight, an!
a thorough search was made <d the
roads and woods, parties sent out !n
i different directions, and repeated
searches have been made without sue
cess.
i Yesterday there was rumor that a
I s trange colored man was seen it* the
• vicinity of the water works, but when
the overseer of the Home reached tin
place later in the afternoon, the mat:
was not Jones.
i Jones was commit to ito the
I Home from the First district. Tt
‘man is short and thick set. A.her so
long a time it is feared by tiie trustee)
that he has been_drownod or frozen
! in the woods, as every effort to Had
the man has proved fruitless.

MANY CASES ARE
DISPOSED OF DY
CIRCUIT COURT
Perhaps the most interesting case
; from a general standpoint that lias
i yet come before the October term of
the Circuit Court for this county, is
that of the trial of Felicia Lowe, a
colored woman, who is charged with
attempted abduction of 10-year-old
j Mildred Lowe, stepdaughter, from the
home of Samuel and Hattie Simms,
j of 74 Franklin street, in whose care
] she had been placed during Qie ah
sem e of her father? Clifford Lowe, who
i is a sergeant in the United States
i army.
The case came tip before Court yes
terilay afternoon, the woman having
been presented by the grand jury,
following the examination of a large
number of witnesses during the last
few days. The court room was crowd
ed when the case was called, there
being many white as well as colored
[ people in the audience. The accused
woman elected to have her trial be
' fore a jury. Jerry L. Smith is at
! torney for the accused woman. An
i important issue involved in the case
is whether or not the attempted ah
d’uction of the child was the result
of love and affection on the part of
the liowe woman, or that she was
' wreaking revenge on the husband, for
it appears f’-nm the circumstances ot
jthe case, that she and her husband
1 ■ had become estranged.
Sergeant Lowe was called as the
first witness in the case and he re
lated in detail all of the circumstances
of his domestic affairs before 4 o’clock,
when adjournment of Court for the
week-end was taken, as today is a
legal half holiday. Sergeant Lowe
told of the marriage to his first wife.
