oo o era o 2
Man Suspected of Myrtle
Point Bank Robbery Taken
Night Marshal Cessna arrested a
man at Prosper last night who may
prove to he one o( the men who
robbed the hank at Myrtle Point,
a. id at any rate the man is u-apted
on the .outside on some charge, and
will he held, whether or not any
thing develops in the rohbery case.
That the man was trying to hide
his identity is clear from the fact
that he carried two aliases; some
times giving his nrtme as Smith and
other times as Vauljri.
The at rest was made last ..night at
Prosper by Night Marshall Cessna.
The man had been staving in the
Gregorv rooming house this week,
but it appears that his wife and child
were at Prosper at least part of the
time. Yesterday he made one or
two trips Irani here to Prosper in a
launch and each time left Ins launch
over to the Moore mill instead ol
bringing it down to the city dock.
City Marshal Holman had re
ceived a communication from Sheriff
Cage to arrest the man as he was
wanted on the outside, even if he
had nothing to do- with the bank
robbery. Holman kept watch for
him yesterday and at one tini" saw
him cross the street but he again
disappeared and went to Prosper.
Holman then followed him to the
up river town, but when tie got
there found that he h id returned to
Bandon with his wife and child, but
he did not remain here, returning
to Prosper almost at once, and last
night he was taken into custody by
Night Maishal Cessna who went up
the river to get him.
Smith, Vauhn, or whatever his
name was, with his wife and child,
was taken to Coquille this morning
and will be held awaiting further
