Kansas City, Jan. 28.--Barton PEEK, aged 35 years, of Peoria, Ills., arrived in Kansas City today from Golden City, Mo., and told the police a story of brigandage worthy of the border days. According to his story, PEEK who is a farmer, was robbed on a lonely road six miles east of Lamar, gagged and bound to a tree, where he remained three days and nights without food or water before being rescued by a hunter. A description of the robbers tallies exactly with a gang of horse thieves arrested at St. Joseph yesterday. PEEK had left Peoria about two months ago, traveling along and intended taking up a farm in Missouri. He shows signs of his terrible ordeal.
