CON BRIGEMAN, A CARPEN
TER CHARGED WITH RAPE
Father Of The Girl Attempts to
Take Brigeman s Life
With Shot Gun
From Tuesday's Daily.
Con Brigman, a carpenter at
the M. P. yards, was arrested yes ,
terday afternoon by Sheriff Fen j
ton and lies in jail, facing the
serious charge of rape, alleged to
have been committed about a
week ago on the person of Miss
Elsie Bobbett, who is barely 111
years of age. Her father did not
learn of the occurrence until yes
terday, and in his anger, he se
cured a shotgun and made a trip
to the yards, and upon meeting
Brigeman. knocked him down
with the gun and evidently in
tended to slioot him when Sher
iff Fenton, who hud feared troub
le and followed him to the
yards, placed Brigman under ar
i est and got him into the auto
and out of reach of the furious
father. Sheriff Fenton’s prompt
and courageous action undoubted
Iv saved Brigman’s life, but even
as it was, be was compelled to
lake bis prisoner to the county
paiI by a circuitous route, as Mr.
Bobbed seemed bent on getting
a shot at him.
ltridgman is not very well
known hero, having come from
St. Joe about five weeks ago.
While the minor details of the
unfortunate occurrence will not
he known until the time for
trial, it is likely to go hard with
Itrigeman if the charge is proved.
It is to he greatly deplored
that anything of this serious mi
lure should occur at this time,
or any other, as far as that goes,
l ut it is also true that the law
should be allowed its course in
any event, and Sheriff Kenton
deserves great credit for the man
ner in which he prevented blood
The affair caused quite a sen
sation al the yards, and the shop
men packed so close about Mr.
Mobbott and Itrigeman that Mr.
Kenton had difficulty in reaching
tlicmm in time to prevent Itob
bet t from earring out his evident
intention of taking Itrigeman’
