GAMBLING TRIPS CASHIER
Docket Shops and Cards Lead to Em
beislement and Flight
of C. A. Cook.
Charles A. Cook, formerly cashier of the
Aorne Harvesting Machine company, Ninth
and Jackson streets, absconded with $1,237.90,
of the money of the company on the night
of November, 28 and Is stlli at large. He
abandoned a wife In Council Bluffs and his
downfall Is attributed to a fondness for
high play at cards and gambling In bucket
shops. The loss will not fall on the imple
ment company, as Cook was bonded to the
extent of $2,000 by the Illinois Surety com--pany.
A complaint charging Cook ith embez
zlement was filed by the local representa
tive of the bonding company In the court
of. Justice of the Peace Cockrel!.
Cook had been employed by the Acme
company for over a year and had been a
most efficient cashier and the utmost confi
dence was placed In his honesty and in
tegrity. Previous to coming to Omaha he
had been the local agent of the Acme com
pany at Aberdeen, S. D., and had also been
employed by the McCormick Harvesting
company. He resided In Council Bluffs and
was well known there.
The defalcations do not extend over a
long period, as the first loss which can be
traced on the books Is on November 9,
when he took $90, and the remainder of
the Amount of the shortage was taken on
the day he left Omaha. He was known to
be an Inveterate whist player and fre
quently played for large stakes.

GUEST SHOOTS IN DREAMS
Dnloth Citizen Fires at Imaginary
Microbes, Perforating Celling
and Scnrlug Sleepers.
While suffering from a violent attack of
nightmare John Kunohuno, a visitor from
Duluth who Is on his way to San Fran
cisco, startled the roomers at the Oxford
hotel early Saturday morning by shooting
the celling of his room full of holes with
a revolver. '
He was disarmed by Officer Cunningham
and taken to Jail, but was discharged in
police court Saturday . morning.
The occupant of the room above Kuno
huno said he was wakened, by the pitter
patter of bullets lodging In the mattress of
his bed and was afraid to move until the
bombardment had ceased.
Kunohuno is unable to speak English,
but intimated that microbes were chasing
him and he was trying hard to put them
out of business. The Duluth man Insisted
that he meant no reflection on the house
by dreaming that anything animated but
himself was occupying his bed.
A bit of humor was Injected into the
monotony of the land trial In federal court
Saturday morning by Leonard Wolf, an
aged veteran from the Old Soldiers- home
at Qulncy. III. He wai one of the Mann
and Todd colonist to Ellsworth, where the
usual fornis and preliminaries were rone
through with, with free transportation, free
hotel keep and free filing fees, as has been
repeatedly told by other witnesses.
"Ven we vent oud to see der claims,"
said Wolf, "de only ding we saw was sand
hills. Ve got oud of the vagon and had a
little fun wld tier prairie dogs. Den ve
went to Johnson's place and got a drlng of
vater on his vlnd mill. Dot was the first
time. Den we went out six months after
dot. Ve didn't see any dings dot time, but
more prairie dogs. No houses on de land
nodlngs but prairie dogs."
A third trip was made to Ellsworth. The
question Jrose as to who should pay the
railroad fare on this trip and on this point
the witness said:
"I didn't pay my fare and I wouldn't.
When we got to Ellsworth we met Jameson,
like de odder times, and he said howdy do,
boys, I'm expecting you. I asked him vas

GREAT BEND, Kn., Dec. g.-After a
daring attempt here at I o'clock this morn
ing to rob the J. V. Brlnkman company
bank single-handed, a man who gave hi
name as George A. Lewis of Kansaa City
was surrounded and surrendered. Bud
Westfall, a driver for the Wells-Fargo Ex
press company, was killed by a shot fired
by one of the pursuers.
Lewis walked Into the bank a few min
utes after It opened this morning and,
pointing a revolver at A. E. Taylor, the
cashier, ordered the latter to throw up his
hands. In an Instant a clerk dodged Into
the vault and set off the burglar alarm.
Lewis fled Immediately and darted up an
alley. A crowd of men and boys were soon
close behind him In pursuit, and, seeing
himself being hemmed In, the robber darted
up the stairs In the Wells-Fnrgo building,
two blocks from the bank. On the second
floor he locked himself In a room and for
an hour defied arrest.
Several shots were fired Into the room
in an attempt to dislodge the robber. One
bullet struck and Immediately killed West-
t fall, who was In the express office on the
street floor. Finally, after parleying for
an hour with his pursuers, Lewis sur
rendered and was taken to the county Jail, j
Officers believe that the name of Lewis Is
fictitious. He said that he came here from
Chicago to do the Job.
The transaction In the bank consumed
but a few minutes' time. Taylor handed
over $3&0 In bills to the robber. The money
was recovered when Lewis was takon to

he was followed to the Jail by an excited
