have been identified as the bandits
who, wi-aring masks, and at the point
of revolvers, held up and robbed the
iinton jewelry .store at North Platte
of $50 in cash and several hundred
dollars worth of jewelry late Friday
The bandits were captured half an
hour after the robbery by a posse of
citizens led bv Sheriff Salisbury of
North Platte, following a chase of
cveral miles in automobiles, near
the Codv ranch. At the point near
which the capture took place, the
oosse lound the nandits car anan
doned in the road, with the taxi
driver whom they had hired bound
and gagr-ed in the front seat.
The enino of the car bad stalled
and the bandits bad juiiped from the
cor and started to run across a mea
dow on the Cody ranch. Realizing
that they were outnumbered and
with no escape but on foot, the four
men stopped at a command to halt
and threw their hands up. while the
posse with drawn rifles and revolvers
closed in and effected their capture.
Bush Jewelry Store
The four bandits, wearing red ban-:
dar.a handkerchiefs over their faces, I
literall rushed t lie Clinton jewelry,
tore from front and rear and draw-,
ing their revolvers, ordered the pro-j
prietor. Jimmy Clinton, several!
clerks and live customers to "put :
'em up." They did. One of the men,
walked up to the show case, dumped
all of the watches, rings and other j
jewelry into a gunny sack, emptied,
the ca'h register of about $500 in,
cash and then started for the door, j
The other three, their guns still j
held on tl.e persons in the store,'
started to back out while the man!
with the sack threw it into their carl
which was standing at the curb and:
climbed aboard. The motor bad;
been left running and with guns in j
their hands, the three bandits made:
a ctasn tor tne uoor, leapeu iuio uir
car and made off at high speed. In
a flash the car had disappeared from
Posse Gives Chase
Sheriff Salisbury was notified. At
the time, he and 75 other sheriffs
who were attending the convention
of the State Sheriffs' association
were preparing to go out to the
Cody ranch for a jubilee. They, to-n.-ther,
with more than i0 armed cit
izens, sprang into automobiles and
cave d:a?? to the robbers. Trailing
thorn in the direction of the Cody
ranch, the pursuers came upon the
bandits' abandoned car standing be
side the road near the ranch. A few
minutes later the bandits were cap
tured in a meadow without resist
ance, after 50 or more guns in the
hands of the posse had been leveled
upon them and they saw escape was
From the desperate actions of the
bandits, the sheriffs and citizens
thought they had captured a gang
of professional-robbers. Put when
their captors tore the maks trom
the bandits' faces, they discovered
they had captured three well
known Nebraska sheriffs and one
Sheriff Explains It All
The captors bad a strange feeling
and were in the act of pinching
themselves to see whether or not
they were dreaming, when Sheriff
Salisbury explained that it was adl a
part of the program of the state con
vention and had been conceived with
premeditation and much forethiught.
The four robbers who perpetrated
the "robbery" concocted the fake
holdup following an argument among
the convention delegates as to the
case with which a robbery could be
staged. Most of them thought it
wasn't an easy stunt, while the brave
lour argued that a holdup was easy
Without letting anyone except
Sheriff Salisbury and two or three
others know their plans, they con
ceived and executed the "robbery"
to prove their point. Neither the pro
prietor of the jewelry store, his
clerks, customers or members of the
citizens' posse knew but what it was
a genuine holdup until Sheriff Sal
The officers admitted that they
took a long chance of getting shot,
but then what does an officer amount

409,000 members of the "big four"

lots revealed a difference of opinion
among the chief executives of the
organizations, the brotherhood of
locomotive engineers, brotherhood of
locomotive firemen and engincmen,
order of railroad conductors and the
switchmen using a joint ballot, while
the brotherhood of railroad trainmen
!sent out a separate ballot.
The trainmen's ballot stated that
it had been the intention of all or
ganizations to use a joint ballot, but
that this was impossible because the
.ballot adopted by the other organiza

tain an impartial and unbiased re
cital of all involved, nor did it con
vey the assurance that the wishes of
the men, if against working for re
duced wages, would determine the
question, and they would be permit
ted to leave the service."
The joint ballot declared that if
the membership was to reject the
wage reductions, which became ef
fective July 1, it is to be understood
that the men will be permitted to
withdraw from the service unless a
