Saeak Thlet Arrested.
A you rig man giving the name of
James K. Harroyton and claiming to be
a miner, out of work owing to the
Colorado coal strike, was arrested
yesb-rday morning at the Ho, land,
House by Marshal Kinsel. Harroyton
was arrested upon the complaint of
Fred A. Kellar, traveling salesman for
a ohemical company. It seems that
Harroyton, -who got on the train atSu
perior Wednesday tvelng at tbo
sarndtime as Mr. Kellar, sat bis grip
down beside that of the traveling man,
and when he got off the train at Red
Cloud he took tho traveling man's
grip. He hired a room at the Holland
House, where ho stayed ovor night.
When arrested he had on a suit of un
derclothing and some other nrtic'ei of
wearing apparel belonging to Kellar.
Harroyton was given a preliminary
hearing before Judge West yoUerday
afternoon, and admitted having ex
changed grips with Kellar, but claimed
tha( he was Intoxicate 1 at the time and
did not notloe the difference until be
went to open the grip at tho hotel.
The grip left in place of the one
taken from Kellar was turned over to
Sheriff McArthur. It contained a com
plete set of dental tools rather a
queer outfit for a coal miner to be tot
ing around over the country It will
be held by the sheriff in hope of finding
its owner, as Harroyton disclaims Us
ownership, and says his own grip has
Kellar's grip and contents were
valued at about 115, and although tho
charge placed against Harroyton was
burglary, it is doubtful if he can be
convicted on that charge. Ho ofTeiod
