sdt early in the game the chances
are he would have outdistanced Geo.
Greenhaw's Ford car, which Mr.
Moody requisitioned in order to over
take the negro. Pierce was caught
in the act of committing a robbery
at the Lewis Hotel Sunday night
about twelve o'clock by Night Officer
Dave Shea, who chased the negro
through the hotel, into the basement
and out on the street. He finally
made his escape from the officer.
Karly yesterday morning Officer
Moody located the negro anil placed
him und"r arrest. He escorted his
prisoner to t lie city ball, and as
Moody entered the building in ad
vance of Pierce, the latter slammed
the door and made a dash for the
