Stole the Hackman's Rig

New York, 1895

The Flushing police are looking for the thief who stole a horse and wagon from E. G. Shire, a hackman, at Whitestone, on Sunday night. Shire left his horse in front of the railroad station a few moments and when he returned the rig was missing. There is as yet no clew to the thieves.
