HEARING IN COUNCIL BLUFFS
T Man Is Brother of Pitcher ThleW
mm of ITlaa1 mm Hlmaclf
Profeealoaal Baa Ball
By a fake prlis flsht and a Ion trip
from I.nulsvllla to Council Blum lat
week Henry Hmplbaum cf Kentucky wag
made the victim of one of the moil elab
rate "eon" games known to the police.
R. I.. Thlelman and E. A. Aleteadt, wbo
were srreated Saturday, were the contriv
ers and they profited $1,000 by the deal.
Mr. Haaelbaum was nrproached by Alt
steadt In Loulavllle with the Information
that a priie fight, strictly eecrot of courae,
waa to be pulled off In Council Bluffa.
Aleteadt'a partner, Thlelman,repreented
hlmeelf a a pug known to the fighting
world aa "Caaey."
The three made the trip to Council
Bluffa together and on the way Haselbaum
was given new evidence at every oppor
tunity that "Caaey" waa Invincible and
ure to win.
The other fighter waa a man named Gor
man, whom the police have not yet lo
cated. When the three arrived In Council
Bluffa liaielhaum waa allowed to bet over
lls.000 on "Caaey." but the beta were all
contracted with confederates of the gang
and were all made with counterfeit, thousand-dollar
ems Too Eaey to Be Trae.
That any man could be duped by such
elaborate foolery aeems Impossible to the
police, but Mr. Haielbaum had not yet
auapected anything wrong. The strictest
secrecy was demanded In all the betting In
which he participated, as he knew the
fight would be stopped if the police heard
of It. Finally the "Caaey" money ran' out
and the victim was Induced to bet 0,000
of his own money on the man he had
picked to win. The fight was actually
pulled off, for Mr. Hazolbaum'a sole bene
fit, at the Kiel hotel In Council Bluffs. In
the third round, however, after Haxelbaum
had been taken Into "Casey's" corner to
act as hla second, "Casey." the unconquer
able, put a quantity of red fluid In his
mouth, and when Gorman swatted him he
spurted out what Hazelbaum though was
.his life blood and Haielbaum fell In a
faint. When he came too the remains of
the battle had been cleared away and the
fighters were gone.
Boon after he got two mysterious tele
grama. One was from 8t. Louis and said:
"Keep on going; the police are after you."
The other, dated New York, read: "Goodby
Hazel, I'm going to Ixndon."
Detective Robs of the Louisville police
force came to Omaha to tako the two "con"
men back to the scene of the beginning
It was later decided to prosecute the case
against Thiol man and Alateadt in Council
Bluffa as the actual transfer of money waa
made there. Mr. Hazelhaum will remain
In the city until the case Is settled and De
tective Rosa may stay to help the prosecu
tion. The men are still In the custody of
the Omaha police.
Thlelman of Good Family.
Thielman lias acquaintances in Omaha.
He Is from a staunch and prominent Ger
man family of St. Cloud, Minn. His
fathor la the pioneer hardware merchant
of that city of 10,000. Here Thlelman and
his five brothers were born and reared and
at one time Thlelman was placed In charge
of the store by his father. The hoys were
' ball players and their proficiency in the
great game tempted them to leave the less
lurid sphere of standing behind their
father's counters for the diamond. .Tike
' Thlelman, now on the pitching staff of
J Cleveland, Is one of these sons. The man
; In trouble began his professional career
iwlth Seattle and waa sold by Seattle to
-Spokane. He has a good record as a ball
Thlelman was confronted by an old
acquaintance after his arrest Saturday at
the city jail.
' "I am sorry to see you In this trouble,"
aid the friend.
"You can't be half as sorry as I am,"
aid Thlelman. "It s the first time In my
life I waa ever arrested."
Thlelman said he had Just happened to
meet Alsteadt. Mrs. Thlelman and the lit
tle children had just gone to Seattle a
couple of days before his arrest, he told
Captain Dunn. Thlelman was especially
anxious about the news of his disgrace be
ing kept from his aged parents and family
If possible, but he remarked:
"I guess that Isn't possible."
Victim Afraid and Aahamed.
"I don't know how many such tricks
these fellows have played," said Captain
Dunn. "You see the cleverest feature of
their game lies In the fact that their vic
tims are afraid of arrest and ashamed of
being taunted and so hesitate to report to
the authorities. They make their dupe be
lieve he la equally guilty with them. In a
way. and when he gets over believing this
be Is so ashamed of being such an easy
victim that be hesitates to let go of hi

FEARFUL NIGHT FOR MAMO
Thrilling Experience on Board Craft
on Cut-Off Lake.
EVERY LIFE IS FINALLY SAVED
Trouble All Dne to Slipping; ( the
Doodad and Fans Pa by .
the Ding Basted Ca-dorlator.
A dead calm rested on the sea, "the
waves to sleep had gone." Bo had the
dinky engine that furnished power at odd
time to drive the boat, and the good ship
Ahamo drifted "aa idly a a painted ship
upon a painted ocean." On board the
staunch and goodly vessel were some
twenty passengers who had paid their good
money for a trip around Cut-Off lake, but
here they were all the same stranded, with
"water, water everywhere, but not a drop
It was terrible; eo were the mosquitoes.
Ouly a little way oft lay shore, and. the
electric lights at the club grounds danced
in tenanting manner as they gleamed and
glinted across the placid bosom of the
lake. Over yonder was Larsen's. Fad at
both landings were boats -galore. On board
the Ahamo all was excitement. The doodad
had slipped and in trying to get It back
Into place the cadorlator made a faux paa,
or a half turd to th right, or omethlng.
and the first engineer and captain went
into secret consultation, while the "black
gang" wrestled with contumacious ma
Then a committee of passengers met and
laid before the captain and the chief engi

"All right," said the enriner. but. "No!"
thundered the captain. He would blast his
tarry topllghts and shiver hi binnacle In
at least three places before be would con
sent to have hi gallant ship made salvage
tor a skiff. And there they stuck.
Late Wits she Touches.
It was 7:56 p. m. on a bright and lovely
July evening wheu the Ahamo weighed
anchor and cast off for Its run that la now
historical. It was 11 o'clock even when
the gallant vessel touched shore again.

inga of those on board during these trying
hours would be unposslble. While the
waters lay deadly still beneath the stars
and finally the moon came up and shone
with silvery refulgence across the lake,
something ominous portended which even
the silence Increased. What If a wind
should spring up and blow the boat into
the bulrushes, here the deadly and treach
erous mud hen and the venomous bull frog
lurk? Perish the thought. Htiavens, what
might have occurred that didn't
Finally, after much demanding that the
captain put off In his canoe and bring
relief from shore, and much refusal to do
so on part of tha captain, a motor boat
happened along and took the Ahamo In
tow. Other boats came along and evntu
aliy all en board were saved It was a
thrilling experience and one or two of tbe
bravest oo board have determined never to
risk themselves or their loved ones by going
to sea at Cut-Off lake again.
