Altoona Bandit Is
Not Harrisburg Man
By Associated Press i
Altoona, Pa., April 3.—Frank Wll- |
| son, who was arrested yesterday at i
i Wheeling. W. Va.. was brought to this '
, city last night and positively identified '
1 as the auto bandit who on March 23
• entered the Union Bank here, shot the >
I cashier, A. P. Rupert, and William!
| Blackburn, a patron, secured $2,883 ;
and then, terrorizing crowds in the 1
street with a fusilade of bullets, made j
his escape. The identification was |
'made by Chester Burket and Mrs. D. '
O. Shaver, clerks in the bank. Wil- j
son was placed in the Blair county jail
at Hollidaysburg.
Wilson is not the man whom the;
Harrisburg police thought was the
. bandit. Colonel Joseph B. Hutchison
j sent a picture of the Harrisburger to
j Altoona last week, but clerks in the
■ bank and those who had seen the
: bandit prior to the robbery failed to
I identify the Harrisburg picture. I

School Kiddies Unite With Col

at Carlisle
Special to The Telegraph
Carlisle, Pa., April 3. —Cheered by
a large crowd, including many col
i lege students, F. E. Wilvert, the "Stilt
King," left Center Square to-day for
Shippensburg, his next stop. This will
■be a twenty-two-mile hike and will
break all records for stilt-walking if
- t Kin IT" makes the distance. A
stort stop will be made ut Newville,
whore the school children have pre
pared a warm welcome for the Harris
i burg hiker.
■ Bucking a strong wind, which blew
from the west at over thirty miles an
, hour, Wilvert, who is making a cross
' continent trip in the interests of the
, Harrisburg Telegraph, with his man
, ager, arrived here at 6 o'clock last
evening. In spite of difficulties, the
1 trip from Mechanicsburg was made
• In slightly over four hours, with only
' one halt, at Pleasantview, a short dis
tance below the town.
I News of his coming preceded him
tß.nd he was met while still over a mile
! from the borough limits by a swarm
of youngsters, and his trip through
,'(he town took on the nature of a tri-
I umphal march. The "Human Sky
i scraper" made a short trip over the
j principal streets of the town and was
everywhere received with shouts, and
j cheers.
| He appeared at the Orpheum Thea
' tor here last evening and spent the
night at the Mansion House.
Clark Is Disapproved
by Illinois Democrats
Special to The Telegraph
Chicago, April 3.—Opinions are ex
pressed by politicians here that Champ
Clark's opposition to the repeal of the
free tolls class of the Panama Canal
act will cost him dearly.
In his own State there is a strong
protest against his position even among
his fellow Democrats. The case Is such
'as to furnish good material for a catn-
Ipaign orator, who can orate llmltlessly
ion the breach of faith by his country
lln trying to avoid paying Its toll bills,
i Moreover, in Clark's own Stnte there
are many aspiring politicians who think
, that the wrong man represents his
, district. The seat of Senator Stone, of
Missouri, Is said to be strongly desired
iby Charles G. Revelle, Insurance Com
i ml«sloner.
i Governor Major Is noncommittal so
! far as possible on all these moot.ques
tions. He would like to unset Senator
| Stone, but does not consider himself
, strong enough, and he refuses to un
i burden himself on the tolls issue.
