ATTEMPT TO
ROB DEPOT
Rock Island Depot Burglarized
Last Monday Night.
Two men, Elenan and W. D.
Gillette, who are strangers but
had been at work for a day or
two in the town were at the
depot last Monday night. A
man approached, flashed a dark
lantern on them, ordered them
to leave, stating that they were
Rock Island detectives and no
one was allowed to lounge
around the depot. Elenan and
Gillette left but were suspicious.
They went to the Yukon Mill
and 'asked if there was a night
watchman in town. On being
told that there was no watch-
man, they started back to the
depot. They met Harry Wil-
liams at the crossing and while
miking with him the robbers
lied toward Oklahoma City.
The depot agent was notified
and he at once wired Superin-
tendent Beardon. A special
agent was sent down from Ef
leno. Al'ter taking in the sit-
uation at the depot, he went to
Oklahoma City, secured a switch
engine and started back toward
Yukon. About three miles from
the City they met three men
whom they suspected. These
nen after being hailed admitted
that they were in Yukon about
the time of the robbery. A
package containing some under-
wear had been torn into at the
depot. One of these men had
on some new underwear which
he claims to have found between
Yukon and Council Grove. They
were brought back to Yukon
where they wer identified by
Gillette. Elenan and W. D.
Gillette, Harry Williams and J.
H. Byrum have been subpoenied
to go to El Reno where they are
being tried today.
They drilled a hole in the safe
but for some reason or other
failed to blow it open. Among
other things missing is Mr.
Byrums' overcoat and six quarts
of whiskey.

Dick Newby Dead.
Mrs. Newby received a tele-
gram Wednesday to come to
Farmington, New JMexico, that
her husband was low. On Mon-
day night while looking with
the depot agent trying to decide
the most direct route, she re-
ceived another message that he
was dead. She wired them to
bury him there.
"Dick" has been a very fam-
iliar figure on the streets of Yu-
kon for years, and his friends
will be grieved to hear of his
death.
