All thre«> were gathered in by members of the A. U T. A. of Neosho county. The prl.soner now In jail was very uncommunicative. He refused to give his, name and his one comment was that this Ss Ills first trouble. He claims 10 be a "New Yi »rk ori)lian." probably meaning that he was sont from the city to some western home to be raised. There reason to suspect that he ha.s been hanging about the sporting district of l<un.<as city since he liegau shifting for himself an<I while he Is apparently but 22 or 23 years old. he has the n>serve of an exiwrienced crwik. He Intimated that he is the victim of chance bad companions and that he knew nothing of the robbery of the Shannon store.

H. T. A. farmers gathered and surrounded the two in a thicket south of Galesburg. About fifty shots were exchanged and as the men were known to be well armed and possessed of abundant ammunition, the farmers were wary. Sheriff Kerr was asked to bring rifles and help, and he started for Galesburg this morning with some heavy artillery and Chief Coffleld..

The- Ford car in which they had Journeyed from lola sustained a puncture at Earlton and they wanted Hoyt to n» it. Hoke and Hester both insisting tbey could not repair the in- Jury. Mr. Hoyt said he had a car, a BuJck, in his garage but that he could not make repairs. The garage was broken into and the three would have proceeded in the Buick car, but Hoke and Hester insisted they did not know how to start or drive it. Then it was that the lola boys were ordered to hurry home. _A big fur overcoat in which Hester'started out, bu» which one of the crooks took and wore during the cold drive, was returned to 'him. The car was run two miles from town on a flat tire, then the wheel was fixed and the two new- over tlie ground to lola. Remembering this overcoat deal, .Tohn Hoke, also, would have been relieved of his coat, but one of the bandies insisted that he •'cUiftoiiler" must bave a coat to keep warm. Having this deal In mind. Barber and Kerr brought the catpured bandit to lola from Thayer in a car at night, through MiK cold, with his wrists bandcuffed and be got a touch of chilly night riding.

Wanle<l In Knnu.s CU} { The identifi(;ation of the trio of adventurers is believed to be "•Icertaln when they are rounded up here. Mrs. Bessie Van Bibber, of East lola, on whom the jmrty called the night they left lola, has admitted that one of the trio is Bert Van Bibber, her husband, who has been absent for several years.
