Norrls , who was chief of < le- , tectlves of Springfield when William Me- Klnley was an Ohio prosecuting attorney | took off his hat yesterday to Sergeant Dlcl Richard as ho looked upon the scrap of < i cipher coJe and heard how from those fen hclroglyphlcs the Sioux City officers haL tracked William Dedcnfteld , the gold bricker | to the quiet country home of Robert S j Payne , the wealthy and respected countrj gentleman. I "It waH a clover piece of work , sergeant very clever. " said the veteran sleurh , "am it is too bad that the other fellow should have made a slip at the finish. But I hope you'll get him yet. " "Oh , there's no question about that , " re piled the sergeant. "That doesn't appea at all difficult. " "Well , " said Norrls , "It seems strange to put this photograph of I3ob Payne it the gold brick gallery. Why , I wouldn' have believed It of him. But hero's the picture of his farm and horses and hound with him in the middle/ There Is no mis taklnc him. The last time I saw Del Payne was in n saloon In Chicago. Hi ran a good paying saloon and was a hook maker on the race tracks of Chicago. Hi had friends among the gold brlckers , bu ho was considered nothing more than c very shrewd bookmaker. One day his book look off $4,000 and that night ho sold hi saloon. The next thing we knew of hln was that he had bought a farm and set tied down some place in western Mis sourl. But when ho left his rura home for the exciting pursuit of goli bricking ho united himself with the clever est man now operarlng in this country. Th Brown who escaped up Pearl street In th buggy waiting around the corner for htir was John Crawford Blackwcll , the trustee confederate of Torn O'Brien , the king o gold brick men , now serving a life Bentenci at N'ew Caledonia , In the French posses slons. I will give $1,000 for him any time He Is under Indictment In Now York , Penn sylvanla. New Jersey , Kentucky , Ohio Michigan , Illinois and Missouri. This om reward is for a trick turned by him togethe with Red Austin and Frank Daggett. Thej sold n gold brick tt > John Druckermlller of Fremont , 0. , for $4,000. "By the way , his flight from Sioux Cltj was not the first exciting getaway he ha made. ' About four years ago ho and ok Dan Scribner worked an old farmer nca Bridgeport , Conn. , out ) of $5,000 on the tlr box game. The boxes had been switches and the money was In .their possession and Blackwell , or Brown , as you call him had walked up the country fane expectlnj to bo met by old Dan , who was to drive along with the money In the buggy , Bu Dan hadn't ! driven fifty yards before ho fel hack In his buggy seat dead. The horse ran away , the $5,000 was spilled out and th big crook had a harder time to get out o the country than ho experienced in SIouj City. " May llnlxt * IVarhi-H In Iowa. SIOUX CITY. Sept. 28.

The freight was pulling In on the side track and had not entirely cleared the main line when the operator threw the block Indicating the track was clear on the west end.

The air brakes wore ap plied , Immediately checking the train enough for the engineer and fireman to Jump off before the crash came. Hod the passenger struck at full speed there would have been a much different result.

It Is whimpered among the rounders that George II. Finn Is proving something of a disappointment ns a candidate. Ho has shown no disposition to open his barrel yet. The Iowa City Citizen thinks that whlla It is H good thing to defeat the fusion forces "good , " it is not a good thing to pile the votes up against them too heavy , but Just heavy enough to "keep 'cm guessing.
