true character. His habits, his appear- j ance, his tastes and intelligence were all ; foreign to the generally accepted ideal of ( a stage robber and thief. It is quite probable that he has adopted or still con- ( tinues the same modes of life, and , in any community where he may be a resident iB doubtless regarded as an honest and law-abiding citizen. • During his incarceration at San Quentin 1 he was seen and noted by nearly every ' sheriff there, officiating in tho State and j could hardly fail to be recognized by any , one of them in the event of a chance 1 meeting. He would be known by all convicts who were at the penitentiary ! during tho time of his imprisonment, i and all these facts leads to the conclusion that it is highly improbable that ho \ has chosen this State as a place of residence. Ho is an accomplished stage robber and pursued the business so long aad successfully that there is no reason to believe that he would be willing to earn his living by actual honest work, aud the rocent numerous one man stage robberries occurring in this State bear so many characteristics of Bart's artistic handiwork that tho detectives think he has resumed his former "mining operations," and is again prospecting for bullion in Wells- Fargo'o treasure boxes.
