tha Chronicle U30 Broadway corner Ninth ttrect OAKLAND August 24 Dr Shannon whose home Is on Chicago and Wat on avenue In the Peralta Heights district was held up and robbed a few mornings ago by the most persistent footpad that has yet operated In this city which ii a way is noted for Its freak crimes and criminals Dr Shannon is a member of the Woodmen and when the all nlgtt initiation was held tn the Fernbrook Park near Niles a week ago he attended mid participated in the celebration He arrived in Oakland about 4 oclock the next morning and leaving the train at Brooklyn station started to walk to his home For several blocks he had company and walked along without a suspicion that he was about to be held up When his friend left him the doctor walked along Fourth avenue Imhe direction of his home and had just reached Ktghteenth street when a stranger with hlo face well masked stepped out In the street and pointing a pistol at the doctor demanded his money The man or medicine in his younger days had quite a reputation as an athlete and he has not entirely outlived his ability In that dlrec tton i As the story is told he was at first inclined to do battle rather than gUe up hW valuables but on second thought and rth the villainous looking pistol looking him squarely in the face he decided that as he had but a small amount of silver with him the better plan would be to hand It over to the highwayman and proceed on his way home mentally resolving that In the future he would hire a cab rather than take chances on being held up and possibly shot because he did not carry with him a sufficient amount of aluables to satisfy the desires of the footpad who so firmly demanded that the doctor turn his trousers pockets inside out The robber took tn small amount of change his Uctlm had with him but was apparently satisfied that he was being illy paid for tne chance he was taking and as Jie walked along toward the Shannon residence he Informed the doctor that he had the reputation of carrying more coin than an examination of his pockets had disclosed and Insisted that it should be forthcoming from some direction The doctor maintained that he had given up every ent he had about him or in his home for that matter As ie turned to go up the steps leading to his home the robber remarked that as the doctor was at home he would have no further use for his clothing and might as well take It off In the doorjard thus allowing the robber to go through the pockets ery carefully and at his leisure There was no alternative and the 5octor complied with the robbers request but Mrs Shannon hearing the disturbance In the yard raised a window in an attempt to ascertain what was the cause of the disturbance and this had the effect of frightening the robber who immediately took to his heels and the doctor was able to gather ud his clothes and seek safety and seclusion In his home The story of the robbery he has attempted to keep quiet but told It to one or two friends who thought it too good a story to keep They in turn told It to others and now It has become a general topic of comer cation among the medical men of this city and In fact was told at a banquet given
