Man Resides in the Neighborhood of
Oyster Bay and Belongs to a Good
Family Secret Service Men Have
to Take Him in Charge
OYSTER BAY A man giving his
name as Henry Weilbrenner was ar
rested at Sagamore Hill late Tuesday
night while making a persistent de
mand to see President Roosevelt The
man was armed with a revolver fully
loaded He was taken to the village
and placed in the town prison
v Shortly after 10 oclock Tuesday
night Weilbrenner drove to Sagamore
Hill in a phaeton buggy He was
stopped by the secret service opera
tive on duty Weilbrenner said he
had a personal engagement with the
president and desired to see him As
it was long after the hours when
visitors are received the officer de
clined to permit him to go to the
house The man Insisted but the offi
cer turned him away
Soon after Weilbrenner returned
and again insisted that he be allowed
to see the president if only for a min
ute This time he was ordered away
and warned not to return
Just before 11 oclock the man re
turned a third time and demanded of
the officer that he should be permit
ted to see the president at once The
officers response was to take the man
from his buggy and put him in the
stables where he was placed under
the guard of two stable men A re
volver was found in the buggy
x Later Weilbrenner was brought to
the jail and locked up He is five
feet six inches high has a medium
sized dark moustache black eyes and
evidently is of German descent He
resides at Syosset about five miles
inland from Oyster Bay He was well
dressed in a suit of dark material and
wore an old fashioned derby hat It
is thought by the officers that Weil
brenner was accompanied by two oth
er men as their footprints were found
in the mud alongside the buggy
tracks In view of this fact the offi
cer on duty telephoned to the village
for assistance and was soon joined
by two other secret service men
Weilbrenner appears to be dement
ed He said that he had received a
telephonic communication from the
president directing him to call at Sag
amore Hill His buggy was taken to
a local livery barn When asked
what had become of the rig Weil
brenner replied Oh the president
has taken care of it thats all right

Normal board locating the new nor

tender spots left on the citizens ol
some of tho other towns that were In
the contest Even Treasurer Morten
sen feels keenly disappointed Tho
treasurer had all the confidence in the
world that Ord would be the place
and he nursed the thought until he
saw the school building looming up
in his town If Ord couldnt get it
then the treasurer it is said wanted
it to go to Broken Bow He waited
just a little too long and Mr Rogers
flopped from Broken Bow to Kearney
On several occasions Mr Rogers had
changed his vote to locate the school
until finally he was successful
It was reported here that an in
junction would be asked for by one or
more of the competing towns to pre
vent Kearney from getting tho school

The request is to be based on the fact
that Kearney offered twenty acres of
land which is not in one tract
when the law requires that the land
be one tract of not less than twenty
acres that Kearney was allowed to
modify its bids after all were opened
and if these are not sufficient to get
the injunction then the constitution
ality of the law giving the board the
power to locate the school will be at
