The Street Car Robbers

The story below appeared on the front page of the April 10, 1894 issue of the Chicago Daily News:

THE STREET-CAR ROBBERS.

Four Men Who “Held Up” Halsted Street Vehicle Are in Court.

The four men, James Moyles alias James Moran, William Thompson alias William Sullivan, Tom Lanagan alias John Butcher, and William McGann alias McGoran, who “held up” a street car at Division and Halsted streets last Friday morning, were arraigned before Justice Kersten this morning, but they took a change of venue to Justice Hamburgher and got a continuance to April 19. Bail was fixed at $1500 for each man and this they furnished. The police say Moyles is well known to them. Thompson, another of the quartet, is said to be the man who broke jail from the Rawson street police station two months ago.

Fully twenty-five rough-looking men crowded around the dock, when the prisoners were arraigned in the police station. The police recognized some of them as belonging to a gang of which the prisoners are said to be members and word was passed among the officers to keep a sharp watch for any attempt to assist the prisoners to escape.”

He Took Elixir of Life

The following article appeared on the front page of the April 5, 1894 issue of the Chicago Daily News:

“He Took “Elixir of Life”.

Possible Explanation of the Unfortunate Mental Condition of Assistant Librarian Gauss.

Treated on Brown-Sequard Theory.

He Will Probably Stay for Some Time in Southern California-A Hard Worker.

May the far-famed Brown-Sequard “elixir of life” cause mental aberration? is a question that is destined to cause widespread agitation when the public learns the fact, which came to light this morning, that just prior to his disappearance, Assistant Librarian E. F. Gauss began to use that mysterious preparation.

When Public Librarian Hild was asked this morning regarding the cause of the mental condition of Mr. Gauss he significantly remarked that for some time his assistant had been under the care of a physician who was treating his patient with the “elixir of life”.

Mr. Gauss has been an untiring worker, it is said, both in his office and out. Of a literary turn of mind, he labored unceasingly after his office hours were over, writing poetry and translating productions from foreign languages.

Since his disappearance many theories have been advanced to account for the unfortunate condition of his mind. A few days ago a Chicagoan recognized Mr. Gauss in San Francisco, where he had registered twice at his hotel under two different assumed names.

Dispatches stated that after his recognition Gauss came to himself but was unable to give any account whatever of how he left Chicago or of his actions since then, the unfortunate man saying the period was a total blank to his mind.

“I knew Mr. Gauss personally and intimately,” said Librarian Hild to-day, “and regret very much his misfortune. Mr. Gauss was an extraordinary worker. When in the office he bent over his desk and labored with a vigor that left not a moment for anything else.

“So closely did he apply himself and concentrate his mind on his work that, together with his outside labor, his efforts must have overtaxed his constitution. From this close, continuing application I think was strong reaction always when he left the office and his nerves went to pieces, so to speak.

“I don’t mean by that he took to drink, for he was not a drinker – most emphatically he was not anything of the kind. Finally his nervous system was in such a state that he was compelled to turn to a physician.

“Under the advice of this doctor he began the ‘elixir of life’ treatment. It seemed to result disastrously. Gauss became more excitable and more easily distracted. His nervousness seemingly increased and then finally came his disappearance.

“I don’t think he will be brought back to Chicago. In the southern part of California are some relatives who have an olive farm and here I think the son will take his father for a rest.”

Asks That a Lease Be Cancelled

From the March 30, 1894 issue of the Chicago Daily News, page 1:

newspaper_bw_1302514860243“Mrs. J.M.W. Jones’ Suit.

Asks That a Lease to John D. Bangs Be Cancelled.

Harriet S. Jones is the owner of the business block 268 to 276 State street. She made a lease of the store and basement, 276, to John D. Bangs, to run until 1897, at a rental of $458 a month.

This lease provided that the lessee could not sub-lease the premises. Mr. Bangs claims the right, under the lease, to sublet, however, and Mrs. Jones has taken the matter into the Circuit court. She asks for a cancellation of the lease and an injunction to restrain Mr. Bangs meanwhile from renting the store. In the transaction, Mrs. Jones says she was represented by her husband, J.M.W. Jones. The lease in duplicate had been made out and given to John D. Bangs to sign. When he returned the lease which complainant was to hold, she says she discovered that erasures had been made in it, so that the lessee was not prohibited from sub-leasing. When this was discovered she at once repudiated the lease, but Mr. Bangs had already advertised the lease of the store.”

Mrs. Martin Now Asks Divorce

From the March 20, 1894 issue of the Chicago Daily News, page 1:

“Mrs. Martin Now Asks Divorce.

Another Move in the Case Involving Dentist Davis.

divorce-word-cloud-13341457

Readers of the Daily News will remember the Martin divorce case, which agitated west side circles not long ago. Anson V. Martin filed a bill for divorce in the Circuit court, charging his wife, Annie L., with undue intimacy with Dr. Lyndall Lewellyn Davis, a well-known west side dentist.

To-day there was filed in the Superior court a bill for divorce by Annie L. Martin, charging her husband with deserting her November 20, 1890.

The story is that Mr. Martin still thinks a great deal of his wife and not wishing to air in courts the unpretty charges which he made against her in his bill will let her obtain a divorce on the grounds of desertion. Mrs. Martin asks the custody of their 4-year-old-girl. By a peculiar coincidence, the child’s first name is the same as the first name of Dr. Davis – Lyndall.”
