Williamsport Warrek county is Diana thursday March 9, inc innate Ohio one of the two men said to have been the party who shot Clint Idle in an attempted trom filed is also said that Garrett and Troxel Are responsible for the Wabash depot robbery at the divorce suit was continued and another one heard and a decree granted. The pythian knights to be entertained last Friday night word reached this place that two men Sylvester Garrett aged 21 years and Rufus Troxel who gave his Home As Somerset ky., had been arrested in Cincinnati Ohio. In putting the Story together from its broken fragments it appears that Garrett and Troxel the latter of whom was working in the car Coupler Plant at Attica prior to the robbery were partners in crime and that Troxel quot squealed quot on the game because Garrett refused to Divide the spoils of their ill gotten gain. After they robbed the Wabash depot at Attica which occurred on the night of feb. 9, in which they secured about $40 in Money and a revolver after binding and gagging operator Dick Parkman they did not leave Attica As they were not suspicious characters and were men who were apparently industrious and gained a livelihood by honest toil. Being successful in evading the Law in the depot robbery they sought to make another haul and picked As their victim Clint Idle who runs a card room in Attica and whom they or one of them at least tried to hold up some two weeks ago. Idle refused to disgorge and the would be robber shot him in the Arm and shoulder. Idle was game and proceeded to protect his Money by a Fristic encounter which frightened the robber who ran away and who also threw away his revolver and his overcoat and it is presumed that the robber was afraid he would be recognized and that he would make his escape while the Opportunity was at hand. It is now believed that this last attempted Holdup scared the two to such an extent that they left Attica at once and went to Cincinnati. Troxel ran Low on finance and wanted Garrett to Divide and when he Garrett refused Troxel filed a complaint against Garrett who was immediately arrested. Once in the clutches of the Law Garrett it is said became weak kneed and confessed that he was responsible for both jobs in Attica and at the same time implicated Troxel As his accomplice. Just what Dif position will be made of the two men charged with the crime is not known but marshal Beamer brought Garrett to Attica where he was bound Over to the circuit court where he will have to face the music. It is believed by the authorities that Troxel has gone to his former Home in Kentucky. A notice to Republican precinct committee Ivien elect.
