One of the most daring attempts at Safe blowing that Ever took place in Danville was stopped last saturday evening when two eggs giving their names As George Mcdonald and Harry o Brien supposed from Chicago were arrested at 7 30 o clock in the evening at the overhead Bridge in South Danville saturday after a desperate fight with three police officers. A report was sent into the police station about 6 45 that two men were hanging around the office of the City Coal company in South Danville. Detectives Moore Kelly and night Captain Walters at once started for South Danville and arrived there just in time to see the men leaving the place. Threatened with juice. In the meantime Mcdonald caught detective Kelly around the Waist and started to push him toward the banisters on the Bridge. In his right hand the egg had a half pint bottle almost filled with nitroglycerine which he threatened to drop and blow them up if the detective did not let him go. He was urged by his partner to quot drop the stuff quot and take the consequences. Detective Kelly showed great personal bravery when he still held on to his assailant when at any moment by the least Effort of the egg All would have been blown to atoms by the heavy charge of the explosive. After scuffling for some time with his assailant being in two dangers that of being thrown off the Bridge and of being blown up Captain Walters came Back with the car and helped Kelly Down the egg. Were Well equipped. After fully conquering the men the three detectives gathered up the different tools of the Safe blowers and loaded them into the police car and started to the station. On arriving at that place they were searched and All the requisite of a Safe Blower were found. Among the articles were sixteen nitroglycerine fuses with dynamite percussion Caps attached soft soap Cotton a Candle flashlight a Jimmy and almost a half pint of nitroglycerine. According to the authorities they had everything needed to blow the strongest safes in the country but after All their trouble they Only secured so it is reported a Small amount of Cash. May explain others. This is one of the boldest and most daring pieces of work by egg men the police of Danville have Ever dealt with. It is understood that the two men had been seen hanging around that part of town a Good part of the Day and it was thought they might not be around there for any Good purpose. It is thought by the Danville authorities that the arrest of these eggs will Clear up the Safe blowing which has been going on in the country towns the past several weeks safes having been blown at West Lebanon ind., Attica ind., Rossville and several different towns in the surrounding country. The men under arrest Are in the neighbourhood of 25 and 30 years old Are husky Fellows and tally Well with the descriptions Given of the Safe workers in the other towns. On Friday night quot the measure of of Leon Dubray quot and quot a mile a minute quot will be the attraction accompanied by quot up against these Are surely Good pictures Anil Merit a Good attendance.
