BUKULAU CAUGHT AFTER HARD
CHASE SATURDAY NIGHT—
NOW IN COUNTY JAM,
Thu reign of terror, occasioned by
the daring activity of a lone burglar,
who, for the past several weeks, with
a total abandon as to his personal
safety, has been entering various
homes of the city, was brought to an
abrupt end Saturday night, when,
following his entrance into the H. Tom
Kight residence, 322 East Fourth
street, und a chase participated in by
several Claremore residents and cov-
ering some seven or eight blocks, the
burglar, whom it is universally
thought is the man who has been per-
petrating the many burglaries that
have occurred before, was captured
by George Patterson, in front of the
latter s home, 42Ii north Chicasaw,
The many daring entrances and at-
tempted entrances that this burglar
has made into the homes of Clare-
more has given the residents of the
town a scare that will long be remem-
bered. He started his career with
the robbery of a number of homes in
one night. At this time his daring
was conspicuous, as he entered home
after home, even after the alarm had
been turned in and the people of the
town in the vicinity of his activities
were up and about looking for him.
Since that time he has at different
intervals entered homes and been seen
at others trying to get in, but in each
instance has succeeded in getting
uway before anyone had a chance to
shoot at him, although several timea
he has been seen distinctly, and the
description given by those so fortu-
nate to see him, fits exactly the man
captured, who is some five feet and
ten inches tall, blue eyed, blond haired
und when captured wore a panama
hat, light trousers, white shirt with
a rent in the back, sleeves rolled up,
and black shoes with rubber soles
and heels. He is a man of some
thirty years of age, with a shifty
gaze, smallpox pits on his face, and
gives his name as G. W. Hout, of
Tulsa, and says that he has a wife
and two children at that place, and
also a father, J. S. Hout, living at
116 Pearl street, Joplin, Mo., who is
an oil driller—the man captured also
claiming to be an oil man from Tulsa.
The incidents leading up to the cap-
ture of the burglar were exciting, in-
deed. It seems that H. Tom Kight
and wife, in company with Mrs. C.
B. Holtzendorff, had been auto-riding
in Mr. Eight's'ear. Just as it was
getting dark, about eight o'clock,
Mrs. Holtzendorff happened to think
of something, that she would like to
get at her home, which is located first
door west of Eight's home on Fourth
street. Accordingly Mr. Eight drove
up to the Holtzendorff home and stop-
ped the car. According to Mrs. Eight
who said that her hair had been blow-
ing in her face during the ride, she
thought that while they were stopped
so near her home she would run
and get a cap. in leaving the house
eorlier in the evening she said she
had not locked the night latch but
merely the door with the regular lock,
hence she was much surprised when
upon unlocking the regular lock she
found that the night lock was fasten
ed. While getting the key for the
night lock out of her purse and the
door unlocked, she said she heard
noise in the house like someone rais-
ing a window.
In the meantime Mr. Ejght had
an errand to do at the back of the
house and had gone around to the
east side, some fifteen feet from the
house. While there he heard some-
one raise the blind to the dining room
window. Then he realized what was
going on—that his home was being,
burglarized when they had driven up
in front, and now, that the burglar
had heard them come, he was trying
to make good hi.s escape through the
back of the house while they were
coming in at the front. Realizing
this, lie crept a little closer to the
window out of which the man was
coming, intending to accost him as
soon as he hit the ground, and, had
it not been for the fact that Mr. Eight
thought he had his revolver with
him, when he did not have it, the
burglar would have been captured
fight there without the long foot race
which followed ere the man of the
night was finally taken into custody.
When the burglar jumped from the
window. Eight stepped up to him and
commanded him to halt, reaching for
his own revolver as he did so, but, to
his amazement, found that he had left
R in the car. The burglar saw
Eight's "tonfusion at not finding his
revolver in his hip pocket and fled
down the alley behind the Kight and
Holtzendorff residences, with Tom in
full pursuit, yelllig at the top of his
voice, "Head him, boys, head him!"
The race was hot, Eight keeping
close to Hout's heels. When the burg-
lar came out of the alley into Choc-
taw he turned north, going past Fifth
street and turning down Sixth at the
W. E. Sanders residence on the cor-
ner of Sixth and Choctaw, with Kight
still in pursuit and yelling at the top
of his voice to rouse the residents
by tho wayside.
It was here that Frank Ertell took
a hand in the game of hare and
hound. Mr. Ertell, in company with
his wife and Mr. and Mrs. D. T. Har-
vey, was burning some dry grass at
the rear of the Sanders residence,
which he and his ■
during the Sanders'absence. Frank
was feeding the flames with a pitch
fork when he saw Hout coming down
Sixth street on a dead run. Frank
ran out to stop him, but Hout com
manded him to stand back, reaching
in his shirt as if to draw a weapon
on Ertell, as Hout issued his com
mand. Ertell says he did stand out
of the way, as he did not know
whether the man waB armed or not,
or what he had done, but as soon as
Hout hud gone past, he says he drop-
ped iu behind und took up the chase,
crying out to stop the man as he ran,
Hout, who was by this time pretty
well exhausted, ran on down Sixth,
with Ertell and Eight in pursuit, un
til he came to Florence avenue, then
he again turned north, going to Sev
enth street. Attracted by the cries of
those in pursuit, Arthur und Jean
Settle and J. W. Hutchison, who
were going down Seventh street on
their way to town, turned back to
meet the fleeing man. Again Hout
used u ruse; he put his hand inside
his shirt and told the three men to
stand back or that he woud kill
them. Fearing that he was armed,
and would carry out his threat, they
stepped back and let him pass, but
ns Ertell had done, joined in the
By this time the burglar was get-
ting desperate, as he was all but
exhausted. He ran on down .Sev-
enth street until he came to Chicka-
saw, there he encountered Charlie
Peck and wife, who were driving
along in a buggy. The burglar ran
up to the buggy and jumped in,
demanding Peck to drive on. Mr.
and Mrs. Peck were much surprised
at the actions of the man and ap-
parently Mr. Peck believed in safe-
ty first, for he told Hout that he
could not drive on, that the buggy
was breaking down under the added
While Peck and Hout were argu-
ing the question, George Patterson
ran out of his house and grabbed
Hout by the back of his shirt, jerk-
ing him to the ground, Hout falling
on his back in the road. By this
time Ertell and others had come up
It has not yet been officially an-
nounced when G. W. Hout's prelim-
inary hearing will be held on a bur-
glary charge. However, it is thought
by those in a position to know that it
shoot when interrupted at his work.
A search of the Kight home follow-
ing Hout's entrance into it, revealed
the fact thai about the only thing
missed was Mrs. Kight's watch.
She had left it in her pocket book a
few days before und placed her pock-
et book away. Saturduy night, she
found thut the pocket book had been
moved and the watch gone. How-
ever, it was not found on the bur-
glar's person und It is supposed that
when cupture seemed iminent he had
thrown it away to get rid of damag-
CLARENCE CHENEY FOUND
KEY TO NIGHT LOCK
Sunday morning, following the
capture of G. W, Hout, after a chase
leading from the II. Tom Kight resi-
dence, 322 East Fourth street, to the
George Patterson residence, on cor-
ner of Seventh and Chickasaw, Clar-
ence Cheney, guard _pt the county
jail, found the key to Mr. Eight's
night lock on the front-door, in front
of his home, 203 E. Seventh street, on
the route Hout went over in reuching
the place of capture from the Kight
When Mrs. Kight went away from
the house Saturday evening prior to
Hout's entrance into the same, she
did not lock the night latch but left
the key in the lock on the inside. It
is thought thut Hout must have lock-
ed the night latch and placed the key
in his pocket, for the night lock was
found locked and the key gone. Hence
it is supposed that Hout, fearing cap-
ture, threw the key away or lost it
According to Ed Harn, guard at
the county jail, all that Hout will say
concertiing the matter is that there is
another side to the story.
WILL INSIST ON ENFORCEMENT

now on the statute books of Oklaho.

NO DATE SET YET FOR HOUT'S
attempt to get away. When he saw
Ertell run up, Hout pointed his An-
ger at him and said: "There is the
man who is accusing me." Ertell
did not know deflnitsdy what (Jhe
man had done, but he did know that
someone farther back in the chase
wanted the captive, so he told those
assembled to hold the man for a few
minutes until someone came.
Only a few minutes had elapsed
when Eight arrived on the scene. In
the interim Hout had been trying to
to convince the crowd he was an
innocent oil man from Tulsa and
that he had not done anything, but
his story bore no weight after
£ight arrived. Kight told the story
of what had happened at his house,
and in company with Chief of Po-
lice Ben Matthews and Clarence
Cheney, guard at the jail, who had
menwhile arrived on the scene, Hout
was taken in Matthews' car to the
county jail, where he is being held.
Following his arrest, Hout told
Cheney that he had a suitcase at
the Radium Cafe. The suitcase was
there and was found to contain many
of his personal belongings, such as
shirts, shoes, shaving mug, etc., not-
able among which were a pair of
regular burglar sneaks, a pair of
shoes with rubber solea and heels,
showing slight wear; also a pair of
dark trousers and a slouch hat, fit-
ting the description of those seen on
the burglar glimpsed in recent at-
tempts he has made to get into dif-
ferent homes here.
According to Mrs. Gregg, of the
Radium Cafe, Hout, in company with
a companion, came into the restaur-
ant about five o'clock and ate his
supper. At that time he had the
black hand bag, which he asked to
leave in the restaurant for a while.
He went back to the restaurant at
about seven o'clock and asked her
how long they kept open. She told
him all night, and then he asked if
he could leave the hand bag until
two o'clock in the morning. She
granted him permission to leave it,
and saw no more of him after he
went quietly out. However, she
says that while he ate his supper,
he eat next to the cash register at
the counter, eyeing the money being
taken in as he ate.
On the burglar's person, when he
was captured, was found a copy of
The Daily Progress, of the Saturday
issue, wherein it was stated that
there would be no lights in the resi-
dence district Saturday night. He
was also found to have in his pos-
session a small instrument, a metal
nail cleaner, with which he is sup-
posed to slit screens of the houses
he desired to enter. On examination
of the Kight residence Saturday
night following the capture, it was
found that Hout had entered a win-
dow at the front of the house by
splitting the screen and then unlock-
ing the window. He had fastened
it after him and then turned on the
night lock to avoid interruption while
he was at work, or in the event that
he was interrupted, the front part of
the house being locked would give
him ample time to make his get-a-
way through the hack.
Hout, when he realized he was cap-
tured, was docile as a lamb. He
wilted like a flower struck by a blis-
tering sun. He would not talk about
the robbery or about his connection
with those which had gone before.
He was unarmed, which goes further
to prove that he is the man who has
been committing the other barglariee
in oar city, as in each instance the
this week or the first of next. His
father, J. S. Hout, ofi Joplin, Mo.,
was in the city Monday but had to
return to Joplin, Tuesday on impor-
tant business. Through the agency
of T. L. Brown, who has been em-
ployed for the defense, the prelimin-
ary hearing will not be held until it
is convenient for the elder Mr. Hout
to return to this city. In the interim
no bond will be given and Hout will
remain in the county jail.

THE CITY HAS BOUGHT A NEW

running order, able to carry its regu-
lar load. Sunday night we were
