A COUNTERFEITER IN J All.
Richard A. Hubburd Arretted For
Deputy United States Marshal Allen
returned Saturday from Red Cloud
with Richard A. Hubbard, who was
.wrested in that town for passing bogus
gold coins. Hubbard was formely a
railroad employe, and has a brother
who is a conductor at the present time
on the Union Pacific. He abandoned
the road eome time ago, however, and
took up a land claim in Kansas, near
the Nebraska line. He is a man about
thirty-fiye years old and is cross-eyed.
He passed the money on a shoe store
keeper in payment for a pair of shoes.
He stated that he did use the money
and pass it, but did not know it was
counterfeit until he was arrested and
charged with the crime. He says he
had been drinking at the 'time and was
under the intluence of liquor.
He will probably enter a plea of
guilty when arraigned in court. He
stated that he only passed a $10-piece,
while the officials eay he has shoved
other bogus coins on unsuspecting
