'Jumping Jack' Confesses to Burglary on Big Scale Here

"Jumpin Jack" Bushway, alleged burglar, arrested in Moorhead, Minn., for Minneapolis police, made an amazing confession of criminal activities covering 40 states today to Detective Captain Herbert Paradeau.
Bushway, who won the sobriquet "Jumping Jack" because he never stays more than two days in one town, admitted robbing 70 Minneapolis homes from April to September 1929. He got loot valued at $3,000. Since then, he told Captain Paradeau, he has operated only in the larger cities of the United States.
"We first got a line on Bushway last September when we found a watch in a stove in his home at 1201 N. Sixth street, which had been stolen from James Lyons, former police officer," Captain Paradeau said today. "The watch had been scorched by fire but with the aid of a microscope we were able to see the numbers. We have been searching for Bushway ever since."

Former Convict Accused of Larceny and Abandonment

Joseph Bushway, former state prison inmate, today faced the possibility of life imprisonment under the Baumes law due to prior convictions. He was arraigned in district court on charges of grand larceny and abandonment. He pleaded not guilty to both charges and his trial was set for Sept. 8.
Bushway disappeared last year when he was sought for questioning about a robbery at the home of James Lyons, 1718 Nineteenth avenue N. After his disappearance his wife charged him with abandonment.

Joseph Bushway evaded a Baumes law sentence in district court late Monday when he pleaded guilty to a larceny charge and an abandonment complaint against him was dismissed. He drew a sentence of up to 10 years. Bushway, who had been convicted three times previously, was about to go to trial on the theft charge when he changed his plea. A jury which heard the evidence at an earlier trial disagreed. The state concurred in a leniency recommendation made by Bushway's attorney and the Baumes law prosecution was dropped.
