Charles F. Bray who claims to
have been an employee in hc
Union Pacific shops in Omaha
until quite recently , and who is
undoubtedly dcmcntcd , was badly
frozen Thursday night of last
weck. Hc came into town from
kilo ' 1 ' 'l'hursda _ afternoon lIic1 :
stated hat t he was on his way to
Kansas City from Denver . but
had ( JetC'rmincelnot to go to Kansas -
sas City because of eight men
down there who were going to
kill him bccausc hc was a "scab. "
After drinking to excess he
walked out to Strauss\'illc and
notwithstanding the thermometer
registered ten degrees below zero ,
he slept all night in the buggy
shed of Jacob Strauss where he
was found in the nwrning" 1\1r.
Strauss gave him his breakfast ,
after eating which the unfortu-
natc man went to the granary
and barricaded hil lself from
Strauss. lIe appeared to fear
harm from some source On thc
advice of l\rr. James the county
attorney , the sheriff drove out
and got him. His feet are badly
frozen and thc probablities are
he will lose one of thcm. There
was nothing about him to identify -
fy him. He had twenty-fivc dol-
lars in money and an empty
whiskey bottle. He gives his
name as Chas. Bray and that his
home is somewhere in New Jersey
He is being cared for in the Mercy
The contract for furnishing
the supplies for thc county next
year was given to H. P. Custcr

for. 's ' he printing of thc super-

Johnny Martin has appealed
from thc alto , \'ilnCC of 'f hc'fribunc
claim for printing thc ballots for
the last general election , and thc
niattcr will bc heard at the nest
term of thc distl'ict court. Notwithstanding -
withstanding the bill allowed is.
less than thc claims heretofore
paid for thc same work. Johnny
is so impotently angry at us that
hc has held it up for a short time.
Johnny wanted thc work himself
and asked for it , hut 'l'he'rribune
was successful in securing the
cmploymcnt. " 'l'hc log in thc
mangcr" is one of Johnny's chief
charactcristics. "If I can't have
it , the other fallow can't" has
been thc policy of thc little man
[ or several yearsSo : notwith-
standing 'l'hc Tribune was to receive -
ccivc less than 'l'he Journal received -
ce'cd in lSII , considering the
work done , Johnny files his little
appeal and says to himself "see
what a big Loj' am 1. " 's ' he
straits in which hc found himself -
self , , is .indicatcd , . t , " . by , the bond hc
offers signed by himself , his bro-
ther F. I . Martin and W. S.
Leyd In the meantime tj'he
Tribune goes peacefully on its
way of taking thc subscribers of
the poor old Journal , and fretting
thc timid soul of little Johnny.

The appeal from 'l'he 'l'1'Ibunc's
