WILBUR DENIES KNOWLEDGE
"Oil Magnate" Clings to Story That Stolen Jewelry
Was Purchased by Him From Mexican and
Negro More of Loot Identified.
Iilte the efforts of the poltcs detec-
tives Jack O. Wilbur termed the "oil
magnate" clings to the story that he
cams into possession ot the jewelry stolen
from fashionable south end homes through
When seen Thursday Wilbur had lost
a little of the debonair manner he had
on the tiiht of his an est. He continued
to strenuously deny that he was impli-
cated in any of the burglaries. .
"1 bought all the stuff from a Mexican
and a negro whom 1 met at night on the
corner outside tho hotel where I was
stopping" was all that he would say on
the subject. '
He told the deteclivt-s that a quantity
of old gold had been shipped to ban An-
tonio but further than that would not
say how the jewelry was obtained.
When shown a picture of his little child
he nearly broke down and cried but re-
covered himself with an effort.
ONLY ONE MAN
So far the detectives have been able to
locate but one man who saw Wilbur
m-the porch of a South End home and
who later identified him as the same man.
That was H. C. Hook. 80'J Francis street.
Mr. and Mrs. Hook returned to their
home from a trip out of the city Friday
"When We came home my wife went
to a neighbor's to get the key. while 1
happened to go toward the rear of the
house when I noticed a screen had been
ripped off a kitchen window. On investi-
gating I iound that the house had been
entered and robbed. My wife did not
miss the open glasses until I was notified
by the detective department to come to
the station and identify them which 1
did." Mr. Hook said.
"On the next night. Sunday about 9
p. m.. the bell rang and when 1 opened
the door I threw on the porch light and
saw a man there who said he had a
note for a party named Fitzgerald. I
told him no smn person lived here by
that name. Then he said he guessed he
had mad a mistake in the location and
begged my pardon.
"1 got a food look at the man and when
I went to the police station Thursday
easily recognized Wilbur as the same man
who called at my pome.
Wilbur admitted l'hursday that he was
on the. porch of the Hook home Sunday
night and that he was trying to locate
a man by the name of Fitzgerald.
A woman accosted Wilbur in the police
station Thursday andl rushing up to him
said: "Why Frank J Wilbur don't you
recognize me. Don'tyou remember that
you spent several months at my home
w ith your wife and baby about two years
ago? Why you left owing me t'i'.oQ for
a board bill and I needed the money ao
Then turning to the officers she said:
Why. 1 recognize him perfectly."
Wilbur told the woman he did not know
ber and that he had never met her before.
TO COUNTY JAIL.
Wilbur was transferred to the county
jail Thursday night to await his examin-
Six more burglaries that were commit-
ted after Wilbur'a arrival in Hous-
ton on February li were charged to him
