Identity of the bank robber, who, aa -Edward
Gordon," waa sentenced to serve ten
years at the etste reformatory at Anamoaa,
baa finally been dlscovred. He waa Identi
fied by Detective Malone of the Lincoln
police force as Amlel Walla of Lincoln.
The bandit a wife and brother came to
vlalt him, but did not arrive until after
Sheriff Harri bad departed for Anamosa
with hla prisoner. The woman waa very
tyllahly dressed and wore diamonds.
Detective Malone said that Walla bore
a freed record up until last Juno. Since
that time he has been suspected of com
plicity In no less than fiva robberiea. He
has been arrested three tlmea. but so far
aa known has never before been convicted.
It la Bow believed that he waa the ring
leader of the franc who looted the Imogens
bank, and that hla pals were both young;
men. Instead of old-timers, as he repre
sented them to be. .
Walla saya that If It hadn't been for the
"fnol farmers" they would all have made
their getaway auccesafuily. One fanner
discovered the robbera asleep In his straw
