BURGLARS VISIT OUR NEIGHBOR
ING CIT Y AND MAKE GETAWAY
WITH SMALL AMOUNT
From Saturday's Dally.
Last night the city of Weeping
Water was the calling place of a party
e.f the night raiders who have been
vi.-iting the different towns of the
county in the last few months and as
a result made away with a small
amount of rash from the Burch meat
market and 51.000 of Liberty bonds
and other cash items as well as
$1,000 worth of time certificates of
deposit from the general store of
Morgensen & Hart, one of the leading
establishments of the city.
The burglars first visited the meat
market managed by Mr. Burch and
which was for a great many years
owned by J. W. Swindle. Here the
robbers secured a small amount of
cah that was left in the cash regis
ter and also possessed themselves of
a large meat cleaver, that they were
later to use as an instrument for
opening the fire proof register in the
other place visited.
From the Swindle meat market the
visitors had evidently gone to the
general store of Morgensen & Hart
and here they pulled off a very unique
and novel job of safe opening. The
cleaver that was stolen at the meat
market played a leading part in the
safe opening act, as through the use
of this the robbers pried open the
fire preof cash register which was
provided with a safe lock and se
cured its contents. The cleaver has
been often used in different purposes
but this is the first time on record j
that it was used for this purpose.
The door of the register had been
pried open and from the contents
$1,000 in time certificates of deposit
on one of the Weeping Water banks
as well as $1,000 in Liberty bonds
and cash wa taken. The loss of
the time certificates will not amount
to a great deal, but the Liberty bonds
which were not registered can be
disposed of by the robbers while the
cash which was in the register will
swell the total loss to $2,000.
The entrance to the Mogensen &
Hart store was made by tearing the
boards off a window in the basement
and from there thejiight callers made
their wav to the main floor or the
store. In forcing open the register
the afe lock was badly battered as
the cleaver played a good part in
gelling into the interior of the reg
It is stated bv the owners of the
store that as a rule there is but very
little cash or vnluables left in the
register and who ever pulled off the
lull must have had some information
of the fact Hint the extra amount
was oti hand t that time.

PART IN CAMPAIGN
Would Not Retrace One Step Nor
Yield a Single Jot in
Columbus, O., Nov. 5. Gov. James
M. Cox. in his first statement since
the election, tonight said that in
spirit he was "as proud as when the
fight started" and that he "would not
retrace a step nor yield a single jot
in principle. The statement follows:
"For the first time in ten years
the republican party is in complete
control of the legislative and execu
tive branches of the national govern- J
ment. Therefore policy as to statute
and administration is with it. Its
task is no longer that of the critic,
but of the constructor. It is my
hope and firm belief that the democ
racy of the nation will not attempt
political sabotage. The country has
been quite enough of that.
"We are in the midst of an emer
gency and the nation's every resource
should co-ordinate in behalf cf the
things that are helpful. So long as
government exists the principles of
Thomas Jefferson will be the center
about which human hopes will gath
er. Talk of a new party is absurd.
One might as well discuss th de
struction of human emotions.
"As essential as it had been to the
welfare of the country in the past.
the creed of democracy is more need
ed now than ever because recent
events have made it distinctly the
"In spirit I am as proud as when
the fight started. I would not retrace
a step nor yield a single jot in prin
ciple. It was a privilege to make the
contest for the right In the face of
overwhelming odds. There is a dis
tinct difference between defeat and
surrender. The flag of democracy
still flies as the symbol of things
more enduring than the passions and
resentment that come with the after
math of war."
