A RUNAWAY YOUTH
Eddie Hickey, Ten Years Old, Desires
to See the World While Young
The police have a queer specimen of a boy locked up in the matron’s quarters. He is ten years old and is much giving to telling lies. The boy’s name is Eddie Hickey. He lives in Grand Junction and has been in Dubuque since Sunday last. He says he came here to see the town and that he rode on a box car. This is the story he tells the police. He has another tale for the police matron to the effect that he escaped yesterday from St. Francis Orphanage where he was placed last Sunday by Father Kinne of Grand Junction. The youth says that his parents are alive and that they treat him well. He says they sent him to Dubuque because he ran away with gypsies. The police have notified the authorities at Grand Junction and will await orders as to what they will do with the runaway.
