Police Magistrate C. J. Smith decid
ed last evening to hold both David
Blythe and Fred Thomas to the grand
jury on a charge of highway robbery,
as in his belief enough evidence was
introduced at their trials yesterday to
warrant the belief that they might
have stolen the diamond ring from
Carl R. Anderson, the defaulting Unit
ed States Express company cashier.
Blythe admitted having 6tolen a pair
of gloves and a cuff button from Ander
son, and Thomas knew so much about
the robbery before the police did that
they believe he was at least implicated
in it. The theft of the ring took place
in the Tarpy restaurant on Seventeenth
street. The ring has not been recov
ered. Each of the boys was placed under
$500 to assure his appearance before
the grand jury next month. Blythe
furnished bail, but Thomas had to go
to jail, as he was unable to get anyone
to go on his bond. Thomas' borne is in
Peoria. Blythe lives in Rock Island.
Fin gen Get Sticky.
William Parsons was held to the
grand jury this morning by the police
magistrate on the charge of larceny.
Parsons is well known to the police,
as the offence which he committed
Monday was not the first of his mis
demeanors by any means. He has be
come what the police term a "booze
fighter," and' he gets drunk and re
mains so as long as he can secure
money to buy liquor. While in this
condition he steals anything he can
get his hands on and sells it to get
more drink. Monday, while Intoxicat
ed, he stole a safety razor and tried to
sell it, but was caught and arrested.
He was sober thi3 morning when
brought before the court, but he admit
ted he was in a bad physical condition
as the result of excessive drink and
that he was on the verge of a collapse.
For this reason the magistrate held
him to the grand jury under bonds of
$200, more to give him a chance to re
cuperate in health than to punish him
for his stealing the razor while drunk.
