WILMINGTON, N. G.,
Interesting Proceedings A Band of
Thieves and Highway Bobbers
Caught In a Trap.
Edward Baucam, alias Charlea Davis,
and J. Green, alias John Merrick, were
the first names called by the Clerk of th
City Court this morning harge; Forci
ble trespass upon the premises of the to
Jbacco factory, located on Chestnut, near
the corner of Seventh street, last night
about the hour ef 10 o'clock. Tbos. Pur
year, colored, the first witness called, W6
tifibd in effect1 that on returning to tnib
city from a trip to South Carolina some
days ago, he with another colored mau
who was bis companion, met the two per
sons at the bar on the road, and from
them received a proposition to organize
themselves into a band of thieves, or
highwaymen, for the purpose of foraging
on all whom they encountered up
on the i highway in their travel
that either from fear or a desire not
to incur any tromblt, they yielded passive
assent to the proposition, and that soon
the four encountered a tramp, whom
Green, alias Merrick, proposed to kill and
rob, but that he, Puryear, and his com
panion, whose nam6 was Tbally succeed
ed in persuading Merrick and his com
panion from their cold blooded intent,
on the ground that the' tramp only had
three handkerchiefs and they wer'nt worth
killing a man for; that upon arriving
in this city he and his companion were
continually beset by Merrick and his
companion to make a raid or commit
some depredation upon some one's prop
erty for the purpose of plunder; that
finally he informed upon them, wher. a
trap was arranged to catch them entering
the Tobacco Factory last night.
Wot Thally, colored, the next witness,
corroborated what Puryear had said, only
he stated that his home was in Virginia
and that he worked at the Factory.
Constable Carr, who ia employed
as a private detective for the city,
was next called to the stand, and testified
ia substance, that the two witnesses who
had preceded him had informed against
the two prisoners at the bar, theirdesigns,
evil intent, and so forth, to rob, and that
he arranged the plan .with Puryear and
Thally, by which they were all to break
into the Tooacco Factory last night. The
witness then . detailed the arrangement,
which was about as follows : A certain
window on the street was 1? ft unfastened,
and the two men, Puryear and Thally,
were to lead those other men, Davis and
Merrick, there f jr the purp an of entering
the factory lo rob nd steal; Iu the mean
time he ('.he witless) with Mr, Meadows
the superintendent j aud omoers Woebse,
Gordon and Moore, of the police force,
remained iu the office of the factory ready
to watch and pounce on the thieves as
soon as they effected an entrance. About
10 o'cock he heard them enter rnd sent
the policemen around to prevent their es
jcape from the window, while he went in
and secured th? pfiscmprs, bj hand cuffiug
j Officer Woebse testified that last night
he was with Constable Carr and Officers
Gordon an i Moore in the office of the
-t . '
tobacco factory waiting and matching,
when a few minutes before 10 o'clock he
beard a Iqw signal whistle and a voice
- I " i-
which "hollered all right;' that wi'h
Officers Gordon and Moore he then raa
around to the window after the parties
had gone iu, that Thally, one of the col-
ored witnesses, who was left outside ; by
the thieves to watch tor the oolica. came
up to them and tuid them to look out for
the big' one, mean ng Merrick, for he had
two razors about bim. Officer Woebse
then got in at the wiudow and Gons.r(able
Carr, who bad already gone in, put had
cuffs on the ssaallcit prisoner, and was
looking around for Merrick, when he
(Woebse) finally discovered him stowed
away under a bench. He was told to
come cut, which he did when tbe' hWd-
caff3 Wore pat upoo-hiiii also,' an J both
prisoner taken to the Guard Houif,
! Officer Gordon, being calied to tba
stand, corroboratsd oSi;er Woeb?'s tet;-
mony, and sdded (bayt he earthed tba
prisoners, after they reached - the guard
room and found on tbe larger of the two
prisoners, two razor, one ol which w is
concealed in bis bjot-leg, between his
drawers, and the other in his bieaat pock,
et. The smaller of the twey the witness
stated, had no weapons of any kind bi it
him. Mr, Meadows, aperiuteJdeai oi
the factory, was theu cailed to the stand
and testified to the good character of tue
two witnesses, Tnoi Puryear and Wm
Toally, Mr. Meadows stated that these
two men came here . with bim from his
county and that their character for truth
and honesty good.- This closed
the casa and the Mayor bound the "defen
dants each over to tbe next term of the
Criminal Court in tbe sum of $250 bond
hu1 j. Green, alias John Merrick, in the
additional sum of -$50 -for carrying con
cea'ed Weapoos, in default of which thtj
were botb committed to jail.
James Baker, colored.one of the twin?;
was next calied up, charged with assault
and battery in Kiiav Fink's ialon tn the

In the examination of witnesses con-
I j -
cerniog the breaking in at the tobacco
factory there was no -one to make a cross
examination, sj a Heview reporter bad
to interview a few of the police officers
afterwards in order to glean a few addi
tional facts, which are as follows. Cap
tain Brock, Chief of Police, told us that
Mr. Meadows came to him night before
last with the information which the
colored witnesses, Thos. Puryear and
Wm. Thally, had given him, Meadows,
in regard to the prisoners Davis and
Merrick and their designs and desires to
plunder, rob and so forth, telling him
further that they were afraid to refuse
these men for fear of their lives. Captain
Brock then sent for Constable Carr and
when he arrived the plan for the trap of the
thieves at the tobacco factory was hatched
In conversation witfi Officer Gordon af
ter the trial he told us that as soon as the
thieves entered the window and he and
Officers Moore and Woebse had stationed
themselves outside of the window, that
Constable Qajr turned on bis dark lan
tern from the office, which revealed th
thieves to the policemen, when, seeing
they were discovered, the rasoals made tor
the opea window to get out again, but
they found the muzzle of two large navy
repeaters in the hands of Officers Woebt t
and Gordon poking right in their faces;
discovering this the detected thieves ex
claimed, 'ali right boss, all right boss,
just please don't shoot, don't shoot!"
