ROBBERY AS TRADE.
Santa Clara Gang "reposed to Loot
Santa Clare, CalM Aug.. 16. Still
concerning their identity, but bilking
freely of the daring $7,000 robbery in
which they were the principal actors
Friday, the tw boys captured at Sun
nyvale by Sheriff Langford were
nrought hero for arraignment on a
charge of robbery. -.--
To Sheriff LangforA who eaptared
them, the young men made a startling
confession. Jos Willetta, who apeeari
to be leader of the gang, said he and
his companion had planned seerieeDf
bank robberies that would have created
reign of terror In financial circles.
80 far had their plans matured, that
on Thursday, with a hired automobile
awaiting their return, they entered the
First National bank, to the heart of
Oakland, and calmly Weighed the
chance of making their escape with a
"Thia Santa Clara robbery was only
aa experiment,'' said the youthful rob
ber, after making thist revChrtton.
"We intended, if it was successful, to
go after a bigger and richer institution
next time and to clean up big money
before wo were through.
"We purchased a machine ta Oak
land and had it remain just aronnd the
corner, as we did in Friday'a Job. Csrr
and I went to the First National bank
about 12 o'clock and leaked the pises
over. We were well - armed, and if
there bad not been as many clerks and
so many people pooling outside, we
would have bold up tbo cashiers and
tollcss and tried to escape with all tba
I money m sight." -

Daring the Boxer troubles, Minister
Wu, in connection with Yuan Shai Kai,
then TaoTai of Shanghai, was aocccac

at thia time, soon after the downfall of
Yuan Shai Kai, hia friend.
Wu'a sympathies were with, ttw

Only an intimation from thia govern

believed, prevented his summary death
at the hands of toe Chinees authorities.
The new mtntctar, Chang Yin Tang,
