100 YEARS AGO Dec. 13, 1913 Frank Bennett, a white man, who says that he is wanted in Bloomington, Ill., for forgery, walked into police headquarters yesterday afternoon and surrendered to Chief of Police Fred M. Cogswell. Bennett told a Gazette reporter last night that he had forged a check for $11 on J. M. Roebuck of Bloomington, by whom he previously had been employed. When asked why he had surrendered, he said that he wished to go back to Bloomington and “square” the matter.
