      RAILROAD DETECTIVES SHOOT TWO FARMERS FOUND NEAR THE SCENE OF ROBBERY
      Subsequently Noah and Eric Haseley are Charged With Criminally Receiving Two Sweaters - District Attorney Being Consulted by Relatives and Friends of Injured Men
      Noah and Eric Haseley, farmers living on their 250 acre farm on the Lockport and Packard road are in the Memorial Hospital suffering from gun shot wounds, victims they and their neighbors claim of a mistaken identity. The wounds were inflicted by railroad detectives searching for car burglars who rifled several cars on MC #1, the train on the Lockport branch that is frequently pilfered by car burglars between Lockport Junction and Days yards, this city. The detective Dominick Smith and another whose name is not known were in charge of William Scherf. The detectives claim that they "have the goods" on the men in the hospital, and that they were carrying off two sweaters when the detectives came upon them. The farmers claim they were not looking for any loot, but to see that their cattle did not get out of a gate onto the tracks after the car burglars drove off with the loot. In this declaration they are corroborated by neighbors , including Andrew Laur who was brought to the Memorial Hospital last night following the shooting , and Louis Haseley, an older brother. The Haseley's are well known throughout the county. They bear an excellent reputation and are thrifty. Several years ago the police were notified by them that car robbers had placed a quantity of loot in their barn and Detective Calliman went to their barn with a wagon and carried away a load of loot which had been hidden in the building.

He boarded a trolley car in the business section of the city early this morning, and attempted to alight from the car while it was still in motion at Twelfth street. He fell and the jar of the fall exploded the pistol. The bullet passed through his right hip, inflicting a serious wound.
