E. A. Smith, Alias Herbert K. Nyler,
Will Be Brought Back for Trial.

R. A. Smith, alias Herbert K. Nyler, is under arrest in Los Angeles on the charge of altering checks of the Bruns Bros. bowling alley and pool hall at Eighth and Grand. Detective Gene Sullivan left for Los Angeles last night to bring Smith back to Kansas City.

A cartoon printed in The Journal several months ago was instrumental in effecting the arrest by the Los Angeles police on the request of the chief of police of this city. Smith was employed by Bruns Bros. and is charged with manipulating checks showing the amounts due from persons playing pool in the house.
