Inmate at Water-town.
Harry Stork, otherwise known as
"Piggy is back behind the bars at the
police station, this time on a very ser
lous charge. Stork, who is scarcely, if
in fact, out of his teens as yet, has
given the local police more trouble
than any two boys of his age in the
city. He has been adjudged insane
and committed to Watertown, but has
been paroled from there twice. He has
been implicated in several robberies
and holdups, bat has managed to es
cape the law each time because of his
mental condition. This time, however,
his case is so serious that the polled
will try to have him sent back to Water-town
and kept there. He is alleged
to have assaulted a 5-year-old colored
girl who lives in the west end of the
city, and to have taken liberties with
her. He Is being held at the station
pending an Investigation of the charges.
ROBBED A UAH BSCEXfTXT.
Only a few weeks ago Stork was ar
rested on suspicion of having robbed
a man who was sleeping off a jag in a
local hotel. Stork denied hia guilt, al
though the evidence showed that he
had been in the room of the robbed
man prior to the time of the robbery.
The evidence against him was not
strong enough, and he had to be dis
missed. Later on it was learned on
good authority that he knew more
about the case than be had first admit
ted, and it was even alleged that he
had the stolen money hidden in his
stockings during the time he was being
tried before the police magistrate. He
utterly defies the police and spends
most of his time while in the cell in
trying: to batter his way out.
