to the Crime.
Four youths, glvlns the names of John
Try, Harry Williams, Charles Johnston and
Robert Reed, are under arrest, charged
with breaking Into the store of Lebovlts
Wolf. 9 South Main street, Friday night
and stealing several pairs of shoes. The
police recovered the shoes, which had been
concealed In the shrubbery on the Stewart
residence, at the corner of Fifth avenue
and Bluff street.
Try. William and Johnston, who claim
to be IS years of age each, were picked up
about 3 o'clock yesterday morning by De
tective Richardson as suspicious charac
ters. Young Reed, who says he is only 15
years old, was taken out of a box car about
an hour later by Officer Gallagher. Reed,
who had witnessed the arrest of the three
other lads, supposed they had been taken
for the robbery, and he at once began to

store had been broken into. Reed said he
watched outside while his companions en
tered the place. The boys admitted the
robbery and told the police where they

Young Reed claims to be the son of a
man who owns two coal mines in Morris,
111., and that he ran away from home
a year ago. The other three lads say they
worked In the packing houses in South
Omaha and Sioux City. The quartet came

STEVESSO SLASHED WITH KXIFE
Stories Concerning the Affray- Differ
During ft fight yesterday afternoon ih
front of the Sixteenth street saloon on
Broadway Bob Stevenson was slashed !n
the chest with a knife In the hands of
John Spry, a teamster. Spry was arrested.
but later released on his own recognisance.
Joe Kelley, the bartender, was also taken
Into custody, but later released on bond.
Stevenson, after receiving the attention of
a doctor, was taken to his home In the
western part of the city by a friend.
Accounts of the affair differ. According
to Kelley' version, Spry was the one who
started the trouble, while Spry asserts that
he was forced to use the knife In self-
protection. He was badly beaten, his nose
being smashed in and hls face badly
bruised. He claims that his assailants hit
him with a billy. The police are looking
for two other men said to have been mixed
up In the fight. Stevenson was recently
