Bert Adams and Lloyd Hlttsbcrger, two men arrested In South Omaha Tuesday night by Officer Jako Small, admit that they have robbed the United States malls In order to escape a return to Leaven worth prison whence they escaped a few days ago. They confessed to United States Postal Inspector Thompson of Omaha yesterday. As to the Leavenworth escape tho men have told conflicting stories, and the authorities are still In some doubt, but Inspector Thompon stated that the men had told of robbing a mall pouch at Union. Nob.," Tuesday morning within twenty-four hours after their alleged escaped from the federal prison. According to tho men's story they "sneaked" a sack of mall at Union as it was being transferred on the station Platform.
