For ft long tlmo past it has been known
to the police of this city that an organ
ized ( rung of burglars , cracksmen and
confidence men was at work in this
city. The arrival of these crooks dates
back from about the time of the opening
of the exposition and fair last fall. The
police have done their best to combat the
invaders and in several cases have suc
Hut through the shrewdness of the
crooks and want of criminating evi
dence , which it lias been impossible to
obtain , the authorities have been unable
to thoroughly break up the gang. That
tills is true may readily bo seen by any
one who rends the daily newspaper ac
counts ol burglaries , safe-blowing jobs
and other pieces of deviltry practiced.
Duo of the gang has turned evidence
ntralnst the others , and the Hii : : is pro-
paved to give
A cojtri.r.TE r.xi'osn
of this band of crooks , thuir names ca
reers and what they have aucoinpliHliud
in Omaha and nclgiiboring cities , their
haunts , dailv ' life , etc. , etc.
The namc'of the man who has given
up this important information will not
bo disclosed hero , for fear of the consequences
quences which would inevitably place
his life in danger at the hands of his as-
soeia'ea. It is only necessary to say
that he is well known to the police and
has repeatedly been arrested. A few
weeks ago ho was arrested with two
other men on a charge of highway rob-
bory. Ho with ono of the mon was re
leased a day or HO ago , on a technicality ,
while the third man was convicted and
sent to the penitentiary for a term of
years. The man who has made this im
portant confession expresses himself as
heartily sick of the treatment which he
lias , since his stav in Omaha , received
from liis associates , and expresses his in
tention of reforming.
Whether these intentions arc honest
and will bo carried nut matters little here.
It is the intention of this article to give
Till : STAUTUNG HKVKLATIONS
made bv this man , and which have never
before teen made public.
Ho was closeted v/ith a reporter for the
Urn : for several hours yesterday , and the
details of his exposure wore accurately
transcribed to paper. In making tins
confession his only stipulation was that
his niimesoould not bo published. " 1'or , "
he said , "if you do you give me away , 1
jiUKonuF.n nv THESE ME.V.
"They would have no mercy for mo. "
"In the lirst place , " he continued , "I'll
give you Hie names of the gang of crooks
who have worked Omaha for six months
past. The loaders of the gang are
Johnny Murray , 1'atsov Kelly , better
known"as 'Curly the Tough' and John
Carroll , known as Torky. ' These men
arc thorough all-round crooks , and a
harder trio of men it would be dillicult
to find in the country- They understand
the art of burglary and 'cracking-cribs'
thoroughly. They are known nil over
the United States as expert 'box-men , '
or safe-blowers. Murray , the head man
of the outlit , is about CO years of age.
He was brought upas a pupil of 'Molhc'
Matches , the
NOTOItlOUS CHICAfiO IH'KOI.AIt ,
now doing time at Jolict , Ills. lie has
also been an associate of such noted safe-
blowers as 'Red' Lciry and Jemmy
llogun , of whom you have doubtless
hoard. He has done time in dill'crent
prisons through the states. His last term
was served , 1 think , at Canon City , Col
Torky' Carroll. Murray's fellow
loader , is just : is bad a nharaclor. Last
summer ho was released from the Canon
City , Col. , penitentiary where ho was
sent up for a 'live spot,1 ( n term of five
yearn ) for blowing a safe. IJy good be
haviorho was 'let down1 to three years.
A few weeks ago ho was arrested' with
another man tor 'pinching' ( robbing ) a
hoosier near the depot. The other fel
low was convicted ami scrtit to the peni
tentiary. Yorky was 'turned up' ( set
free ) through the intercession of ono of
the wonum in that \V. \ C. T. U. place on
Twelfth street , whom the mon know as
the 'Uuokinghiun Kid. ' The 'Buck
ingham Kid' had seen 'Yorky1 in the
county juil and though ho was anything
but prepossessing , she took a fancy to
him and interested herself in his behalf
until ho was sot free. Carroll and his
immediate pals have to my certain know

Ho recently served six months in the
Canon City 'pen1 anil has also 'done'
tlmo for a safe-cracking job at Kingston ,

trio , who is at the head of the gang , is
also a thorough 'box-man' ( safe-blower )

"Theso arc tiio leaders. Now I will
civoyon the names of the other mon.
They are : Johnny Mills , who received
his education In bt. Louis , whore ho is
known as the 'Kerry Patch Lad , ' hav
ing often boon brought before the 'four

rious sneak thief ; Kd. MoUonnld , who at
OIIB time was a boll boy nt the MillardjTom
Koaton , who was sent to Lincoln for u
throo-suot ( term of three years ) for rob
bing a man on Tenth street. Selh
Kcurna and Tom Desnritt , who will do
time at Lincoln for highway robbery ,
wore also in the gang. They all train
in the sumo crowd and a bettor posted
sot of mon , in their business , it would bo
mighty hard to find , Most of them are
under thirty years of ago. Pat Cluncy is
the grandfather of the gang , Ho is sixty-
live voars of ago , white-boarded and YOU-
orable in appearance. He is n conli-
donco man , and a mighty good ono ,
too , for his looks enable him
to 'gull' a man where younger fellows
would fail. Ho 1ms boon a crook for six
ty years in fact , since ho was Hvo years
of ago. Ho has loft Omaha temporarily ,
and ! hoar ho is doinga little 'side work'
in St. Joo. Patsy Kelly , alias 'Curloy ,
the 'lough,1 is almost as slock a 'con-
man' as Clancy , though ho is very much
Younger. Ho and Clancy are responsible
for most of the confidence games that
have boon worked about here lately , "
HOWTUKY CAM P. TO OMAHA.
"How did you happen to como to
"Tho 'gang' decided to make Omaha
their headquarters in September last. A
man was sent here to look over the
around , and after 'nosing around' ho re
ported that this city and surround
ing territory atlbrdod a splendid
liold of operations. Murray and Carroll ,
thn men who wuroat that time working
in Kansas City , came on at once , arriving
hero on the Saturday that the exposition
closed. The other men in the gang
dropped in about the same time , by ones
nml twos , bo as not to attract the atten
tion of the police authorities , If you
tuko the trouble to look oVer the lacs'
of the daily papers , you will find that
from that time on until the present , high
way robberies , burglaries and safe blow
ing jobs , conlidcnco games , have been
of daily and nightly appearance. The
papers blamed Marshal Cummings as re
sponsible for the
1'KIU'KTHATIOX OF THIS DnVlLTKY.
"That's ridiculous , I tell you. lo ) you
suppose that Cummings and his thirty
men could break up n gang like tins ,
with such mon as Murray , Carroll and
Kelly at the head of it men whom the
keenest detectives and the experienced
police of larger cities have failed to sift
down ? "
"How do tlinso crooks regard Omaha
as a ficlu for operations ? "
"Well , to toll you the truth , this city is
rcgardeil the best ono of its size In Amer
ica , for crooks. Wo are all 'onto' that
fact. The boys all have the police system
of Omaha spotted as 'n. g. ' Thoj haven't
nearly enough policemen on the force ,
not nearly enough detectives. Of course
there are some good men on the force ,
but many of them arc regular 'hams. ' "
"Do you know of any jobs done lately
by the pang ? "
"Yes. The City Steam Laundry safe
was blown open by the Murray gang
and about $150 in money obtained , Heal
& Hebron's safe was also blown and sev
eral hundred dollars taken. The Omaha
mills' safe blown ( on .Ninth and Fantam )
was one of the last jobs. Wo got only a
few odd dollars out of that because the
proprietor had taken out most of the
casli the Saturday night previous to the
Sunday on which we did the job. Storz
t& Her s safe blowing was also ono of the
jobs of the gang. About $200 was real
ized out of that. Some papers wore alro
obtained which wore valueless to any of
the gang. Some time ago the boys took
a run ( town to Hastings and blew the
safe of W. L. Edwards , a coal dealer
down there. For three weeks his place
was carefully watched and it was found
that on the night of the 'job' it had
12,200 in it. The boys used
powder ami by some mistake
put in more than they ought to
hayo done. The consequence was that
the whole door of the sate was blown oil'
and smashed through the front window ,
making a terrific noise. This alarmed
the boys and they searched the safe has
tily , getting only ? 150 where they ought
to hayo had over $3,009. And those bur-
lanes in David City , which caused such
a sensation a few weeks ago they wore
the work of the gang. The postolhuo was
robbed of $000 in cash and about $500 in
stamps. 1 think , altogether the boys
made about ! f2 , 00 out of their work
there. The stamps wore afterwards sold
for about half their value. "
"Where are the headquarters of the
gang in this city ? "
"At W. Hertz's restaurant and hotel at
210 South Tenth strcoet. Nearly all the
ganc are located right at that place. "
"Docs HorU know this ? "
"I ilon't think that he docs. As long
as the men pay their bills ho doesn't care
who or what they aro. "
"How long does the gang expect to
work in Omaha ? "
"Just as long as the men can find any
thing to do. From present appearances
they will stay here just as long as they
now TIM ; WOHK is DONE.
"Tho specialty of the gang , " continued
the man , in replying to a question of the
reporter , "is safe blowing. Of course
that is a dillicult and dangerous branch
of burglary , but it is the most profitable.
When the men make up their mind to
blow the safe in n store , they watch the
place for days and sometimes weeks ,
before the job'comes oil' . ' They cot a
perfect diagram of the place , find out
about the habits of the cashier , whether
lie is in the habit of 'banking' every
day , how much money he generally loaves
in tiio safe at night , and whether there is
a 'kipper1 about the place at night. By
'kipper' I mean a man who
sleeps around a place at night , to guard
it. When all these details are known
then the job is ready to 'come off. '
Three men are generally detailed to do
the work. Ono watches outside and the
other two work inside. There are two
wnysof blowing a safe by using powder
or by using the drill , chisels and ham
mer. The best workmen generally use
the last method. \ \ hen powder is used a
hole is drilled into the safe near the lock
by means of a. powerful Morse drill ,
which will cut almost anything. W hen
the hole is drilled deep enough , a little
powder is put in with a blowpipe , and
then it is touched off. This cither blows
the safe door oil' the hinges , or better still ,
COMPLETELY 1IUINS THE LOOK.
"Tho door is then easily opened. When
a drill , punch , chisel and hammer aroused
used , tiio hole is cut into the lock by
means ot drills and then by means of
the proper tools , the lock is cracked to
pieces and drops down. This method is
more ditlieult , but is not so noisy or
bungling as the powder plan. "
"How do these men spend their
money ? "
"Thoy make money easy enough , and
they spend it jus > t as rapidly. It all goes
FAST WOMEN AND GAMBU.VG ,
"to say nothing of drinking. Every night
these fellows hold carousals in the dif
ferent houses of ill-llunio on Ninth ,
Tenth streets and Capitol avenue , occa
sionally spending hundreds of dollars in
ono night. Some of them are 'dead
anxious' to spend their evening in gam
bling houses , bucking faro. Then they
drink expensive wines land whiskies ,
and that costs money. The consequence
a that they never save anything ,
and while they may have hundreds of
dollars one week , they are liable to have
nothing the next. Johnny Murray , the
prince of the gang , generally cots the
lion's bhiiro , and yet the moat money I
over sftw him have at ono time was $700 , "
Hero the interview closed. The fellow
repeated his earnest desire that his name
bo withheld until ho was far away from
Omaha and safe from the vengeance of
his fellow-crooks. Ho reiterated his be
lief that his former pals , after tlto dis
closures lie had made , would not hesitate

Yesterday a young man sccdlly dressed
and with a general woo-bcgono expres
sion on his face , walked into Gaulish's
drug store , Twelfth and Dodge , and loan
ing on the counter , said "I am tired. "
"Yes , "said the clerk : "been out all

"Naw , naw , " replied the stranger con
temptuously , "I'm tired o1 lifo. I'm go
ing to kill myself. "
"Sol" answered the clerk , razor , re
volver , rope , or rough on rats route ? "
Without paying any attention to this
question the stranger took a piece of
paper and scribbled a few words on it.
u "Send mv body to this place as soon as
yo hear of my death , " ho said to the
clerk , solemnly. .
So far as the writing could bo de
ciphered , the inscription on ono sldo was
as follows : "My right name is Hob Hack-
ctt. " On the other side was the inscrip
tion : "Please send my remains to Miss

"Those are the last words I shall over

"That item about the clerk at the post-
oflico delivery window giving Eek , the
bicycle rider , the letter th.it bore the
simple inscription , 'To the Greatest
Man on earth'was a pretty good one , "
said a sporting man to a reporter yester
day , "but there is a funny incident back
of it. The day that Eck and his hand
some trainer and backer , Steve Carlisle ,
arrived in town , they went to the post-
otlico. Eck , in his humorously pompous
way , approached the young lady at the
general delivery window , ami asked if
there was any mail there for the greatest
man in the world. The young lauy at the
window cast an eye to a box near at hand
and sweetly replied , 'No , Mr. Prince lias
just been after his mail. ' Thu shock was
too much for Eck , and ho would have
fainted had not Carlisle como to the res
cue. That Eck is a great man. "
"Tliero goes a man , " said a policeman
to n reporter yesterday , "who ought to
bo run out of town. He has earned the
title of 'Jakcy , the Vag , ' and deserves it.
He has been in Omaha for nearly a year
and has not done a day's work , although
he claims to bo n plumber and work in
that line is always good. Ho * lias been
hanging around a colored dive all sum

man and had no one dependent upon
him. i learned , however , the other day
that he has a wife east who is in reduced
circumstances and that his poor old
mother is sick and in a hospital. I'm so

I'm apt to knock the head oil'of him if I

OMAHA , Feb. 21. To the Editor of the
DEE : It occurs to mo that something
should bo said to a few deluded people
who are building "squatter" houses
along and in the old abandoned river
bed north of the recent cut-ofl' .
If they are seeking to gain possession
of lands for which they hold questionable
title , or tax liens , it is all right , but if
they are making a settlement with a view
to preempt or otherwise to secure land
from the government , they are sadly off
The title to this abandoned river bed is
vested in the owners of the fractional lots
bordering upon it. The purchaser of
each ono of these lots from the govern
ment secured in addition thereto the un

of the stream and no more , no less , f
A large stream llko the Missouri river
is surveyed or "meandered" for two
very important purposes First , to se

of the available land in the fractional lots

These meander lines are run by the
government surveyors when sectionizlnic
the townships through which the
etrcam runs'or which border on its clian

The river may , and often docs , by wash
ing awaj its bnnk traverse across these
lines and beyond , opening an entirely
now channel a long way inland. If it was
a navigable stream oofore it left its
official bed , it Ji a navigable stream in
the now ono. THe abandoned river bed
is certainly not navigable. It has carried
with it the right df navigation over pri
vate property , but not its re
corded location , nor the state
or county boundary , nor the lines
defining the property of individuals.
Those are fixed in the world by a base
line and a meridian and do not change ,
and may bo readily rcdellncdif lost sight

this stream abandons its surveyed location
the adjacent property meets in its center ,

Another Hit ; Ilcal Estate Deal.
Omaha will soon bo up to Wichita and
some other towns one-third its size in re
gard to real estate prices. Yesterday the
lot nearly opposite the Merchants hotel
on Faruam was sold for $7o,000. This is
about the last lot available for building
purposes between Thirtcecnth and Six
teenth streets that will likely bo for sale
for the next few years as nearly all others
have buildings upon them too valuable
to destroy. Two different parties claim
to bo the buyers. Hush \ : Solby , the
agents , gave u Kansas City party the re
fusal of the property until Tuesday even
ing , and were also negotiating with a Mr.
Cary , of Omaha , wiiom they hud told
could have the property after 5 o'clock
if no word was received from the Kansas
City man. Promptly at 5 p. m. Mr. Cury
handed Hush & JSolby a check for $1,000
to bind the bargain and in loss than ten
minutes a Western Union boy handed
them a message also accepting the oiler.
The question will likely have to be set
tled as to whether "Tuesday evening"
