dimple in point of chin, slight scar over left eye and large 
scar on back of neck, speaks with quite a decided foreign 
accent (somewhat resembling German dialect), usually 
wears dark, square-cut sack suit and dark Derby hat, of 
design shown in the accompanying picture. 

Was last seen in San Francisco on Friday, Novem¬ 
ber 3rd, 1911. Is supposed to be accompanied by his wife, 
who is about six months pregnant. Rosenholz is a 
mechanic, having been engaged in inventing different 
machines, and it is reported that he sometimes poses as a 
doctor, engaged in the abortion practice. 

History of the Case: His first wife, Mary C. Rosen¬ 
holz, obtained an interlocutory decree of divorce from 
him, and, under the California law, this divorce did not 
become operative until the expiration of one year after its 
entry. Long prior to the expiration of the year, he again married, this time to the 
woman with whom he is supposed to be. An Information was filed against him in 
the Superior Court of the State of California, in and for the City and County of 
San Francisco, on February 6th, 1911, by Charles M. Fickert, District Attorney, 
charging BIGAMY. Action is numbered 3,056, assigned to Department No. 6 of 
said Court, Hon. Frank H. Dunne, Judge. On November 6, 1911, Arthur Thomas 
and George Carlson, bondsmen on his bail, filed with the Sheriff of San Francisco 
a. certified copy of the bond, with an endorsement thereon, directing the Sheriff to 
arrest him, which has the effect of a Bench Warrant. 

If arrested, wire me, and I will send officer with proper papers.

County, Tenn., at Jamestown, Tenn., of one W. S. Smith, de¬ 
faulting Trustee of Fentress County. 

He left Jamestown on Nov. 5th or 6th, 1911, and was last 
heard of at Monticello, Ky.. in company with a Miss Tilly Pru¬ 
itt, a woman of ill repute. It is supposed that he and the 
woman boarded a south bound train at Somerset, Ky., between 
Nov. 7th and 22d, and are supposed to have gone west. 

W. S. Smith is about six feet tall ; weighs about 180 lbs.;

by investing in his enterprises.

If found, arrest, wire me, and hold him until an officer can get there with the proper papers.

Pear Sir: — 

I am quite anxious to secure the apprehension of /.I red A. Buck, 
a description of whom appears in the onolosed circular. The explanations 
of why he is wonted will also he found on the circular. 

During the month of November Buck w s in Honolulu. He wrote e 
letter to parties in Maoleton, this County, in which he staged that he 
was go ai to the mines of Australia. I have reason to believe that 
tint letter was ••• r it ten for the purpose of throwing the authorities 
off their ■ uard. I am convinced that he doubled his tracks and came 
back to the United States, and I believe that he will locate in one 
of the western cities, hopin.- to escape arrest. 

I hone you will interest yourself in this mat'er and will do whet 
^ou ca. to ard a prehending Buck. 

Thanking you in advance for anything you may do in this matter, 

I am 

Very truly yfcurs.

WANTED 

For Obtaining 
$ 6,000 
Under False 
Pretenses. 


Louis Lauer. 


Louis Lauer, a German, is wanted at Delaware, Ohio, 
for obtaining $6,000 under false pretenses. Lauer left his 
home Saturday, Feb. 4,1905. 

Lauer left here on Friday, Feb. 3d, ’05, and on Saturday, 
Feb. 4, I believe he bought a ticket to Newport, Washington’ 
as there was a ticket sold to party answering his description 
to that place. Lauer has a brother, Fred Lauer, living at 
Walla Walla, Washington in the winter time and in the sum¬ 
mer he lives 8 miles in the country. 

DESCRIP riON-By occupation is a farmer and stock 
buyer; age 39; weighs about 175 pounds; is about 5 feet, 
9 inches tall; fair complexion; dark hair; walks just a little 
stooped, and when he left home had a short, stubby mus¬ 
tache. He wore a brown coat and vest with small check cor¬ 
duroy pants, black shoes and cloth arctics. The above pic¬ 
ture of him was taken about ten years ago, but is a fair like¬ 
ness of him now. Lauer has no bad habits, drinks very little, 
does not gamble except that he buys some at the bucket- 
shops. He is very close and will not fool his money away. 
He may buy a farm in some Western State or may buy and 
sell stock under some other name; may also deposit this 
money. Please inquire at bankers’ for this kind of money. 
Following is a description of the money he took with him: 
4 five hnndred dollar bills in U. S. notes, 2 five hundred dol¬ 
lar bills of gold certificates, and $2,000 in $10 notes of a new 
issue of the Delaware National Bank and $1,000 of the same 
in $20 notes. Lauer was born in this country, but speaks 
broken English. He talks good German. As I want to get 
this man before he gets rid of his money, I would ask the of¬ 
ficers to please look him up as soon as possible and I will 
pay the above reward if located. Arrest. Charge, getting 
six thousand dollars under false pretenses. Hold and wire 
me and I will send officer for him with proper papers at 
once. I hold warrant for him. If arrested search carefully for 
money or papers of any kind. Take them in your possession. 
Lauer has wife and three children here. 

Wire any information at my expense.

Wanted for the Murder of GO NAN, a Chinese Farmer. 


ON THE EVENING OF THE NINTH OF FEBRUARY, IN THE CARMEL VALLEY, NEAR MONTEREY, 
STATE OF CALIFORNIA, GO NAN, A CHINESE FARMER WAS MURDERED AND ROBBED BY SHOTARO 
FUKUDA, A JAPANESE LABORER, WHO WAS WORKING FOR GO NAN. 

Description of Shotara Fukuda: Age. about 25 years; about 5 feet 3 
or 4 inches in height; rather darger complexion than the average Jap; 
heavy, black, connected eyebrows; full, round face; wore his hat low over 
eyes; heavy, black hair, combed straight back not parted. When last seen 
wore working clothes. He speaks fair English and frequents gambling 
houses. He came to Monterey on December 20, 1904, from San Jose, and 
stopped at Japanese lodging house in Monterey until January 17, 1905, at 
which time he went to work for Go Nan and worked for him until the 
night of the murder, then disappeared and has not been seen since. After 
shooting Go Nan in the back with a shot gun and cutting his throat he 
took from his body about $50.00 in coin and a gold filled case watch, open 
face, 18 size, No. of case 6,806,763, Elgin works No. 10,217,615. Also took 
with him a double-barreled, breech loading shot gun. 

The Japanese characters above is Fukuda’s name proper in Japanese, 
and the Province in Japan from which he came. Officers will watch closely 
all Jananese boarding houses, employment offices and other places where 
Japanese names are registered, for this name. There are some Japanese Fukadas but we are informed no other 
SHOTARO FUKUDA in this country, as far as known; hence it is an uncommon name. 

We are anxious to capture this man and hope all officers will do every thing possible to this end.

WANTED FOR ROBBERY 



R. STEWARD 


On the night of October 2, 1904, at 7:20 o’clock p. m., the 
barkeeper (who was a lady) and two men in Mrs. P. Hubbs’ 
saloon, situate about one mile outside of this city, were held 
up by R. STEWARD, who entered the saloon from a side 
door of the building, his face being covered with a handker¬ 
chief below the eyes. Covering parties in saloon with 38- 
caliber blue barrel pistol, he demanded of them to turn over 
what money they had and place it on a waiter and hand it 
over to him, which they did; he received some $25.00 in all 
and then backed out the same door he came in and disap¬ 
peared in the darkness. One of the persons in the saloon 
came in a few minutes previous to the hold-up and asked the 
other gentleman in the saloon to have a drink, and while 
drinking the robber came in from behind them and held all 
three of them up, including the bar-tender. This person was 
arrested by the officers and placed in jail as an accomplice, 
but denied all knowledge of being implicated in the hold up, 
or ever being in company with R. STEWARD. Investigation 
proved that they came to Stockton together and were seen 
together on the day of the hold-up. Some few days later this 
man, Sims, hung himself in jail. 

DESCRIPTION OF R. STEWARD 

American; has the appearance of having Mexican or 
negro blood; age, about 26 years; height, 5 feet 9 or 10 
inches; weight, 175 lbs.; long, thin foot, inclined to be flat; 
complexion very dark; color of hair, black (thick and bushy, 
parts same in the middle); smooth shaven; stoops over and 


has a swinging gait when walking; inclined to be of a sleepy 
disposition and slow in moving around; smokes cigarettes; 
drinks some; fond of women, and will be found around saloons 
and dives; eats and rooms at cheap places. 

When last seen wore dark sack suit of clothes, black 
fedora hat, white shirt; always wears stand-up white collar 
(as shown in picture), size, 15|^; also cheap necktie, mixed 
colors. 

Occupation, barber; learned the trade at L. M. Gillett’s 
Barber School at 611 Commercial street, San Francisco, Cali¬ 
fornia; left there July 30, 1904; has worked at breaking 
horses, also what is termed “bull punching”; is liable to work 
at any kind of labor. His laundry mark on clothes when in 
San Francisco was 41—3 and may be carrying same mark on 
his clothes now. 

The above picture, being copied from a group of four 
barbers, taken in San Francisco while learning trade at 
Gillett’s, makes it impossible to show up clearly, but 
has been identified by persons that knew him as R. 
STEWARD, and by parties in Stockton, as being in company 
with Sims on the same day of the hold-up and two or three 
days previous. This man may be going under a different 
name. 

If found, arrest, hold and wire me, at my expense. I hold 
warrant for robbery—a felony.

$500 REWARD 


This amount has often been offered and paid by Sheriffs, Govenors and 
individuals for the capture of a certain criminal or criminals, and it is nearly an 
every day occurance where a smaller amount is offered in your own State for a 
certain party or parties committing smaller offenses. Now, in nearly every case 
of this kind, this offering a reward can be avoided, should the Sheriff, Constable, 
City Marshal or some other officer of the law have a good pair of well trained 
MAN-TRAILING BLOODHOUNDS to put on the trail of these criminals when 
first discovered and tracked down before they could get out of the community 
in which the crime was committed. This is a fact that we all know; here is where 
the whole thing lies in a “nut shell”, — when there is a theft committed, murder, 
house burglarized, convicts escape or prisoners breaking out of jail, the party 
having the dogs can take them at once to the scene, put them on the track and 
trail down the party or parties, while without these bloodhounds you may not 
even have a clue. 

I am the “hound man” of the South, and have for sale, as a rule, at all 
times trained man-trailers, young partly trained hounds and pups of the very 
best strain and at reasonable prices. My hounds are the old reliable SOUTH¬ 
ERN BLOODHOUNDS, called by some as the NEGRO HOUND, the kind that 
were used during slavery times, and the kind that are now used in our Southern 
State Penitentiaries for trailing down escaped convicts. 

The Southern Bloodhounds are the only natural man-trailing hounds, 
therefore, anyone can train a pair of pups in a short time to be reliable man- 
hunters. Now, for the benefit of those who have already bought bloodhounds, 
whether pups or grown dogs, and have found them not trained as well as they 
would like, and for those who do not wish to pay the price of a pair of fully 
trained bloodhounds, I have published a pamphlet (copyrighted) entitled “30 
YEARS WITH HOUNDS” on working, handling, feeding and training these 
hounds to track, capture and identify criminals, and by following the instruc¬ 
tions which are as simple as A B C they can purchase a pair of pups at about 
20 per cent, of the cost of a pair of fully trained man-trailers, and train the pups 
themselves, or purchase a pair of good young partly trained man-trailers that 
has had a good start in this work for about one-half of the cost of a pair of fully 
trained dogs and complete their training in a few weeks time by merely giving 
them practice on trial runs. This book is the only publication of its kind and is 
worth to anyone interested in the man-trailing hound many times the price 
asked. Will send you one of these valuable books on training, post-paid, for 
only 50 cents. 

Now, should you be interested in this matter and the welfare of your com¬ 
munity write for my prices and eight page pamphlet on the southern bloodhound 
which contains several excellent illustrations, (half-tones made from photographs 
from some of my bloodhounds) tells how to order, how I ship, terms, etc.; it is 
free, but the book on training mentioned above is 50 cents per copy. 

Address, 

S. J. VAN RAUB, 

San Antonio, Texas. 

N. B. — I also have a few fine well bred and well trained fox and coon 
hounds for sale. Should you know of anyone wishing to purchase one or a pair 
of good hunting dogs you will greatly oblige me by giving them my address

WANTED FOR GETTING MONEY UNDER FALSE 

PRETENSES. 

Arrest and detain the following described persons: 

No. 1. J. M. Bain, age about 60 years; height about 6 feet; complexion 
air; sandy mustache, cut short; wore a brownish suit of clothes; he is 
raveling in a single buggy. 

No. 2. F. C. Bohrne, age about 52 years; short heavy set; wore a dark 
suit of clothes and a derby hat. Bohrne has a woman traveling with him, a 
rery large good looking woman. She generally remains at the hotel while 

Bain and Bohrne are working the country. 

The above parties left Merced, Cal., about the 1st of September, going 

north. 

Both of the above parties are traveling through the country under the 

guise of being doctors of chronic diseases. 

No. 1., J. M. Bain, is the advance man. He goes to a town and regis- 
ters at a second class hotel and then looks up those who are afflicted with 
chronic diseases (he looks for country people), he gets a list of names, 
calls on each, gives them a free consultation. He leaves them and states 
that his partner, Dr. Bohrne will be with him in a few days, and they 
would call together and make a thorough examination and tell them 
whether they could cure or not, also give them the cost of cure. 

Dr. Bohrne would make his appearance and make the examination in 
three or four days, collect the fee (never forgetting to collect their fees) 
and promising to call again. That would be the last seen of the two dead 
beats. 

In town they are plain J. M. Bain and F. C. Bohrne, but when they 
get into the country, they both claim to be doctors. 

Officers, keep a close watch on your hotel registers for the above two 
quacks. If they should come your way, arrest and wire me at my ex¬ 
pense. I hold warrant.

CARD 21. 


Fresno, Cal., November 6, 1905. 


On the night of the 30th, or the morning of the 31st of October, 1905, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Hayes 
were brutally murdered about 20 miles west of this city. They had been to a ranch owned by them in 
the foothills of the Coast Range, and, on their way back to Fresno, had stopped to camp at a cabin 
owned by a Mexican with whom they were friendly and had frequently stayed over night on their way 
to and from the foothill ranch. The Mexican was not at home on this occasion, however. Their dead 
bodies were found by passers-by about 11 o’clock a. m. on Tuesday, October 31, 1905. Every clew 
or suggestion of the guilty party or parties has been followed by this office to no avail. So far as we 
know the only circumstances that seem to point to the murder that have not been explained satisfac¬ 
torily are: 

1. The following described gun was found about 60 feet from where the dead 
bodies lay, and no one has been found who claims to have ever seen the gun: 

A Lovell, 12-guage, breech loading, single barrel shot gun; 32-inch twist barrel; 

No. 2249; pat. July, ’87-’90; broken butt stock, wrapped with iron wire around grip; 
pistol grip; nickle-plated frame; iron butt plate; has been roughly used; quite dirty. 

2. Two men on wheels were seen going in the direction of the cabin above men¬ 
tioned a short time before sundown on Monday, October 30, 1905, and the same two men 
were seen coming back toward Fresno that night about 9 or 10 o’clock. We have been 
unable to find out who these men were or where they are since that night. They are de¬ 
scribed as follows by a gentleman who saw them and talked with them about two miles 
from the cabin where the murders were commited: 

(1) Height, about 5 feet 8 inches; weight, about 135 lbs.; complexion, light; age, 
about 19; one full gold tooth on right side of upper jaw which showed plainly while he 
was talking; one tooth with half crown of gold on opposite side of mouth; face slightly 
freckled; smooth shaven; wore light ribbed shirt, cheap light dotted tie, soft black flat- 
crowned hat. 

(2) Height, about 5 feet 7 inches; weight, about 145 lbs.; dark complexion; smooth 
shaven; dark hair; about 26 years old; wore black shirt with sleeves torn off between 
elbows and shoulders, black derby hat. 

We should be pleased to have any information that would lead to the ownership of the above 
described gun. 

Officers will please arrest any parties filling the above descriptions who are not able to give 
satisfactory explanation of their whereabouts at time of murder hereinbefore mentioned; hold and 
wire me.

TWENTY DOLLARS REWARD 


N '*j « 


STOCKTON, GAL. NOV. .73rd, 1905. 

Following is e description of JOHN J. HORPHAN who I want for 
passing fictitious checks. The description is very good, the 
nan easily identified, and I an sure can be caught notwithstanding 
the fact that he seens invincible, for he has commited nany pet it 
crimes throughout the State during the last year and no one has 
yet picked him up. 

Hoffman's mode of living and operation is as follows: He goes 
to some city, puts up at a 2nd or 3rd class hotel for a week or two 
gets acquainted without making himself conspicuous, then on Satur¬ 
day after banking hours passes a few bad checks and leaves; or he 
sometimes goes to a snail town near a city, works or lays around 
until his funds are low, then drops .into the city and does the work 
always on Saturday or Sunday. 

There is one sure method of capturing him; that is to have all 
2nd and 3rd class hotels, saloons, and other places where he night 
go (particularly those near the depot) notified' and instructed to 
watch for him especially on Saturdays a d Sundays. If you or some 
of your officers will notify all such places., giving then descript¬ 
ion and instructions we will pay him (20.CC reward for his trouble, 
provided it results in a capture and delivery to ne in any jail in 
this state. 

I send this circular to only one officer in each city and re¬ 
quest him to take the matter up; thus there will be no misunder¬ 
standing or confusin' as to "ho will work on the case and who will 
be entitled to the reward. 

Description.

Kohlsdorf sawed out of jail at this place June 2, 1901, with 


one G. W. Jones who was afterwards located in Salem penitenitary and 
brought back for trial for horse stealing. 


Kohlsdorf was convicted of burglary, and was to have been 


sentenced on the day following his escape. His wife, who is shown in

Rosanna, and it is supposed that his family is now with him* 


Kohlsdorf followed the occupation of junk dealer, and is 


probably in that business now, he loaded the contents of a house on 
his wagon while the owner was absent, and was convicted on that 
account. Is said to have killed two men before he came to this 
state, is a very mild appearing man, and given to tears when in 
trouble, his wife visited him and took in the saw he used to get away 
with. 


Jones is now awaiting tril, and we are very anxious to get 


Kohlsdorf, and will appreciate it if you will kindly keep a lookout

TO 'AGENTS FOR THE SALE OE STANDARD PATTERNS: 

We have recently received complaints to the 
effect that a swindler has "been operating in our name in 
Southern California. His method is to offer an agency and 
an exhibition case of Standard Patterns upon a small payment. 

He usually calls upon small tradesmen, milliners, dressmakers 
or ladies who can least afford to lose the money. 

He operates under different aliases, one of the 
most recent being E. J. Moyer or Mayer. His name has also 
been reported as Livingston. Complaint has been made to 
the authorities at Los Angeles and at San Bernardino, California 

Although we cannot be held responsible for such 
swindling operations we are anxious to stop them and shall be 
glad to have your co-operation. . We have no description of^ 
this particular swindler but should he call upon you, or snould 
you be able to locate him, we shall be obliged if you will 
notify your town Marshall or Sheriff to hold him until you^ 
hear from us, and will ask you to communicate with us by wire. 

We will cheerfully pay $25. reward for the arrest, conviction 
and incarceration of this individual for three months or longer. 

Kindly notify the police authorities or other

This man was arrested with a cripple and a boy. The boy had stolen a watch. The 
man we are holding on a Vagrancy charge for thirty days. His time will be up February 
10 th, 1906 . 

He had on him a red folding pocket book. The name “Jake Zemansky” had been 
stamped on it in gilt letters, but the gilt had been scraped off and a piece cf sticking plaster 
pasted over the name. In the pocket book was a clipping from some newspaper, dated March 
28 th, from Denver, Golorado, giving an account of a counterfeiting scheme that had just 
been unearthed by the Federal authorities, and the headquarters of the gang was believed to 
be in Denver. He also had recipes for making all kinds of alloys, and a one hundred dollar 
bill on the Gity Bank of New Orleans, dated 1849 . 

His description is as follows: 

Gives name as Levi Hampton; an American; age 59 ; height 5 ft. 9)4 in.; weight 159 
lbs.; hazel eyes; gray hair, cut very short; smooth shaven, but beard would be heavy and 
gray; has oblong white scar on back of left shoulder, high up; small round scar on back of

on front of left knee; scar on right knee; small round scar on right buttick, near meridian 
line; sore on right shin, apparently wound of some kind and not yet healed. 

This man will give no account of himself, and we believe he is wanted badly by the

If you can give any information, do so promptly, as we will be compelled to liberate him 
on February 10 th on the present charge.

$50 REWARD 

for Arrest and Conviction 


Officers, arrest H. W. Wilson or Harry W. Wil- 
son, age about 33 years, height 6 feet, weight 170 
pounds, light complexion, clean shaven face, light 
hair, grey eyes, right eye is cockeyed, two gold teeth 
in front, and most of his teeth are filled with gold. 

When here he wore a light hat and light grey 
summer suit. He is a very talkative man and 
claims to have a rich old father. 

He is accompanied by his wife. She is heavy 
set, weighing about 185 pounds. She has a pleasant 
expression, is nice looking and has two children, one 
boy 3 years old and a baby 4 months old. Her 
teeth are also filled with gold. She has a light 
complexion. 

The couple had a baby buggy with them and I 
learn at the local depot that they had to pay excess 
on their baggage. They left Ceres, this County, on 
November 14th and went to Sacramento, after buy¬ 
ing on credit, about $400 worth of goods from a 
local merchant, and selling the same. 

If you locate them, arrest Wilson and wire me 
as I hold warrant for him. If he is convicted, the 
above reward will be paid arresting officer.

this county. Watch small places where there one or two saloons. He may have bought or 

rented a chicken ranch somewhere, as he always talked 
about that. But his graft is to go to small places, hire a 
horse and buggy, take the outfit to some other county, 
and trade or sell the same. He has been sent to Folsom 
twice for this offence, and we now hold Felony war¬ 
rant for him. He was discharged from Folsom June 11, 
1905, and in December was at his old trick again. 

He hired a horse and buggy of Ghas. Morrill, livery¬ 
man at Montalvo, this county, which we have since found 
at Snelling, Merced Gounty, where he sold the outfit and 
left for parts unknown. He may have hired another 
rig by this time. 

Officers and liverymen please keep close watch for 
this fellow, as we would like to put him where he will not 
bother the liverymen for some time to come. 

His description is as follows, taken from the records at Folsom: 

G. Hunter, alias Gyrus Boyer; age 40 years; height 5 feet, 3% inches; weight 140 
pounds; size of foot No. 5; complexion medium eyes light brown; hair brown; one vaccine and 
two dim vaccines on upper left arm; two dim vaccines on upper right arm; mole on upper 
right arm; mole on left shoulder, front; dim horizontal score on left side of nose, at the bridge. 

Was sent to Folsom from Alameda Gounty for embezzlement for three years. Was dis¬ 
charged May 7th, 1888. Also sent to Folsom from Fresno Gounty for grand larceny and 
discharged June 11th, 1905. 

He is a paper decorator and saloon decorator, and will most likely be found around saloons. 

When he left here he wore a black derby hat, dark suit and light vest. 

Officers please do everything possible to secure above de¬ 
scribed party. Mr. Morrill will pay $25 and I will add another $25, making $50 for 
the arrest of this fellow, if you will hold him until 1 can get their with the warrant. I hold

ESCAPED FROM THE UNITED STATES PENITENTIARY, AT FORT LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS, 
AT 3.30 P. M., ON NOVEMBER 7TH-, 1901. 

James Seymore, No. 2176. White. Age 25. 5 feet 7 1-2 in; 120 lbs. 

Slender build. Dark mustache; Dark hair. Dark grey eyes. Scar 1-2 inch long first phalanx 
back of left thumb. Scar 1-2 inch long on 3rd joint back of left index finger. Scar I inch long 
2 1-2 inches above center of left eyebrow. Scar 1-2 inch long right side of chin 11-2 inch below 
corner of mouth. Bertillon Measurements;—71-0: 66.0: 93.0: 19 . 4 : 15.6: 13.9: 6.3: 24 . 9 : 10.8: 


8.3: 43.9. 


The above photograph is a good likeness of him. It was taken on May 26, 1900. This man 
claimed to be a R. R. brakeman but we think he is familiar with machine shop work especially railroad 
machine shops. He, together with another man (who is still in this Penitentiary,) burglarized a Post 
Office using nitro-glycerine. These two men are what are called “Yegg men” and they made it a 
business robbing Country Post Offices, Banks and Railroad Depots. They were tried and convicted at 
Texarkana, Arkansas, and sentenced to this Penitentiary on May 18, 1900 to a term of 5 years each. 

Please examine all prisoners that you have in your Jail, Police Station, Penitentiary or Work 
House. This man has been so vigorously persued since his escape from here so that we are inclined to 
think that he has committed some trifling offence in order to get himself in Jail or Penitentiary for a 
short term in order to throw us off of his trail, 

I will pay Sixty Dollars ($60. 00 ) for his arrest and detention in any Jail or Police Station in 
the United States until fully identified and turned over to an officer from this Penitentiary.

CIRCULAR NO. 1 


MISSING BOY! 

Los Angeles, Cal., February 12, 1908. 
On the 6th day of January, 1908 



GEORGE L. CARTER 

left his home, since which time his 
mother has not heard of him. 

He is described as follows: 

A Native of California, 16 years 
of age, height about 5 feet, 6 or 7 
inches, weight about 130 lbs, brown 
hair, brown eyes, olive complexion, scar on forehead above 
one of his eys, about one inch long. He has a natural apti¬ 
tude for machinery and spent a great deal of time around 
Automobile Garages, and may be found working in one, or em¬ 
ployed as Chauffeur. 

The parents of the young man are very anxious to locate 
him and his mother has spent a great deal of time and money 
in that endeavor, but has met with no success. She therefore 
placed the matter in my hands, requesting me to bring it to the 
attention of the various Peace officers of this and other states, 
and requests their assistance in locating her boy, as she is almost 
heart-broken on account of his action. 

If his home was not a good one, I would not ask you to make 
a special effort to find him. If found, detain and notify the 
undersigned. 

W. A. HAMMEL, Sheriff. 

LOS ANGELES, COUNTY CAL.
