Breaks Window Glass Stopped In hts aig-zag flight by a bullet from the revolver of Chief ol Police Martin which struck his shoe and sent him spinning around into the hands ol the pursuing officer, Mike Murphy was arrested Sunday afternoon after trying to sell some stolen cheese to a local restaurant keeper. Murphy who claims he has been in the city but a few days was given a sentence of 30 days In jail by Judge Orr in the municipal court this morning pending a further Investigation into the affair. Last Friday evening Murphy appeared at a local restaurant and tried to persuade the clerk in charge to buy a 22-pound cream cheese which he carried with him. He offered It lor sale at $1, but the clerk refused to buy the morsel without the authority ol the proprietor who was not present at the time. Murphy was told to come in later. He promised to do so ant said he would bring some more cheese with him when he came. Suspecting that there was something wrong with the bargain offered, the proprietor of the restaurant notified Officer Dolan of the night force who cautioned him to advise the police department if the man appeared again. Oflleer Dolan brought the cheese to headquarters and began an investigation. - No further reports were made to the department during Saturday, but shortly before 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon a telephone message notified Chiet Martin that Murphy had brought lour more cartons of cheese to the restaurant and offered them for sale. When Chief Martin arrived on the scene. Murphy was displaying the cheese which he had In a sack. The chief ol police waited until the dickering over the sale had reached a point where Murphy accepted 50 cents for one ol the packages. He then reached out to put his man under arrest. Murphy, however, made a jump lor the door and started on a run down the street. Chiel Martin drew a revolver as he reached - the street and fired a shot toward the ground. It struck the sidewalk, flattened and ricochetted against the window of the restaurant, breaking a large hole in the pane, but otherwise doing no harm. The shot had it effect in frightening Murphy, but he continued to run, going west on Eighth street with Chief Martin In pursuit As Murphy reached the Eighth street entrance to the VanEps building, .Martin fired his revolver again, this time into the air in the hope of bringing the man to a s,top without injuring ,.v him, - but Murphy Jumped into the alley and sped along. With the way, clear, it was evident to the chiet that he must shoot at the fleeing man. He raised his revolver and took deliberate aim at Murphy's feet as he ran in a zig-zag fashion down the alleyway. The bullet struck the sole of one of Murphy's shoes and sent him spinning around. Before he could recover himself, Chief Martin had made him a prisoner. An investigation made today brought to. light the fact that freight checkers at the Milwaukee depot had discovered the loss of five packages of cheese. The number , coincides exactly with these offered for sale at the restaurant by Murphy which are being held by the police as evidence. A seal on a box car had been broken and the cheese stolen. . It had afterward been concealed in a pile of sawdust near the depot. The car had been shipped into South Dakota from Abbottsford, Wis., and the case "now held against Murphy will be prosecuted by the United States government wnder the law governing the theft of goods on common carriers between different states.
