Section Foreman Keano brought one
Win, Snowdan to town laBt Tuesday
from Girard and turned him over to
Sheriff Wiker for trespassing the law.
Keano looks after the Burlington's in
terests at Girard and caught Snowdan
in the act of getting away with a coat
and two revolvers from the car used as
a section house at that place. But it
was not till Keano had a lively scuffle
with the thief that ho was able to over
power him. Snowdan shot at the sec
tion boss twice with tho stolon guns
but his markmanship was "bum" and
hence no injury was done. The stolen
property belongs to Chas. DeBonis, an
Italian laborer at Girard. Snowdan
was arranged before Judge Berry Tues
day afternoon and plead guilty at a
preliminary hearing. Ho was charged
with shooting with intent to do great
bodily injury and on the second count
of theft. Bail of 1,000 on each count
was imposed, in default of which ho
was taken in custody by tho sheriff to
appear in the next term of district
