VICTIMS COULD NOT IDENTIFY OWEN SMITH
Magistrate OMMEN, sitting in the West Side court, Manhattan, yesterday was
greatly displeased when the wealthy West Side residents who have been held
up could not identify Owen SMITH, of Long Island City, as the robber.
Although Dr. TALBOT had picked SMITH out of a line of plain-clothes men, he
said yesterday that he was not sure of the man. Brewer WOES could not
identify SMITH, and he was discharged. The Magistrate said it was queer that
the man could not be identified, and charged the complainants with refusing
to identify because of personal inconvenience.

TO COLONIZE JEWS ON LONG ISLAND FARMS
KING'S PARK, Jan. 25 - The Jeffrey SMITH farm of 286 acres and the Theodore

the Jewish Agricultural Society of New York City, which has the support of
the Baron DE HIRSCH fund with a view to colonizing Jews. Only married men
are to be received. The idea is to draw the Jews from the crowded sections
of the East Side in Manhattan and Brownsville, Brooklyn.
