Robbery Committed Yesterday in Park Street Bowling Alleys Twice arrested within twenty-four hours is the latest police record of Ernest Taft, a seventeen-year-old youth of West street and an all around bad boy. Taft was arrested Satur day noon by Patrolman St. John, on a warrant charging him with cutting a tire of a bicycle ridden by Gordon Moynihan of Cherry street. After a hearing in city court he was allowed his freedom for the time being. After a night's sleep Taft evidently forgot all about police court and the warning of City Judge Calhoun Enches that unless he should be a good boy, he would be sent to reform school. With a companion, Taft en tered the Park theatre bowling alleys on Park street at noon yesterday They got into the place through a rear window, while, the manager Louis Ginsberg, who had been in the basement, was across the street getting lunch. The lads had formerly been employ ed to set up pins on the alleys, but were discharged after getting into a fight. They were therefore familiar with the fact that the receipts of the alleys for Saturday and Saturday were kept in a desk in the place over Sunday as they could not be deposit ed until Monday. They secured a screw driver and opened the desk From one of the compartments they removed about eleven dollars in sil ver, but in their haste overlooked $100 in bills in another compartment. They made their exit through the window by which they entered, using a step ladder. About twenty minutes later Ging- berg returned and discovered the loss Learning that Taft and his compan ion had been seen about the place he set out in search of them. He found Taft on Glen street, about to give a portion of the spoils to his father, Mott Taft, a well known char acter in police circles, who has only recently returned from Lake George after serving a term in the county jail. Ginsberg summoned Patrolman Thomas Clancy, who arrested both the father and son. The eider Taft was charged with receiving stolen property. The companion has not yet been located. When searched at police headquar ters the Taft lad was found to rave s'xty cents and his father had $4.35. Rorh were locked no and will be ar- ctrveral; weeks ago. The local union will meet to decide on the questions some time today or this evening.
