way was adopted by one burglar this

a hole in the screen, reached in and

I lo do with the hold-up of Will 'Dletriek
| Monday night. Scarbrough was indig-
nant when arrested and threatened lo
j bring damage suits against the city
for false imprisonment.
Detective Warden is waiting word
from ihe Wells-Fargo express agent at
Memphis in regard to a hold-up of a
Wells-Fargo agent in which the pris-
oner Is supposed to he the notorious
Tony Ward who figured in the crime
and at which time about fifty thous-
and dollars was taken. Ward's history
is one filled with crimes. If this he
Ihe right man he is wanted at Fort
Worth for the murder of a gambler
there in 1901. The gambler was slug-
ged and afterwards shot and robbed.
He had considerable money nnd dia-
monds. The deed was committed at
the man's own gate just as he was go-
ing home for the night. A man by
the name of Fox was arrested for the
crime and convicted and is now serv-
ing a term in the Texas penitentiary.
However, it was not thought from the
first that he was the right man though
he was convicted under circumstan-
tial evidence. Friends have been at
work for his release and a writ of ha-
beas corpus for his release is now
pending in the supreme court of that
Another crime that Ward is charged
with is the killing of his father-in-
law. He was married in Las Vegas,
N. M., under the name of Scarbrough,
the same as given at the police head-
quarters here. His wife did not find
out who he was until after the mar-
riage and when she did there was
trouble, in which the woman's father
took the daughter's side. Ward at-
tempted to kill the father, then, but
failed. His wife secured a divorce and
Scarbrough left the country. He af-
terwards met his former father-in-law
in Arizona, and, it iff said, killed him
there. For this crime he is wanted.
Ward is also wanted for another hold-
up of the Wells-Fargo express agent at
Willard, Kan., when about $18,U00 was
secured from the company.
That Scarbrough and Ward are one
and the same there seems lo 'be no
doubt. Detective Warden is waiting
for word from Memphis, and this in-
formation will do much toward the
identification of the prisoner. Mr. War-
den was a resident of Texas when the
crimes with which Ward is charged
wero committed, and he is well ac-
quainted with the circumstances. Ward
is noted as one of the boldest robbers
and murderers in the entire west.
Although Ward is detained here only
on a charge of vagrancy he will be
i i_j| „ , -—- .held until a photograph said to be
and Indian police were threatened, and , Ward's is received from Chicago where

Has lie studied law, history and politic
Has he had great chances to learn, a

WHAT STANDS FOR SAFETY.
In a certain sense we .shall have to ad-
mit this to he true. To every grade of
lawbreaker, high or low; to a man who
would rob a till or a ballot box; to the
sneak or the bully; to the hyprocrlte nnd
the humbug. Theodore Roosevelt Is more
than unsafe; he Is positively dangerous.
But let us be serious with these good
people What are the coefficients of safe-
tv in the chief of state? He should have
courage; the wisest coward that ever
lived i- not lit to rule. And Intelligence;
we want no blunder-headed hero in the
White Iloiific And honesty; a clever thief
would do Infinite mischief. These three
art' the Indispensable*. WKh them u
man Is till the more saf. if he has a sense
of proportion, a sense of humor, a wide
knowledge of men and affairs; If he seeks
good counsel; and, tinally. If he is a pa-
triot. if he loves his country, believes In
It. and seeks In all things ils Intercut and
its glory. Any man may make mistakes
