Sudden Disappearance ol
folk Man Gives Alarm.
HE HAD MONEY ON HIS PERSON.
Police Fall to Find any Clue as to the
Whereabouts of Stone Mason Who
Was Last Seen at Supper , 411 South
Fourth Street , Saturday.
fFrum Monday's Dally. 1
August Hurg , of 111 South Fourth
street , 1ms dropped from view. Ho
very suddenly iiud mysteriously dls-
appeared Saturday night and It Is
feared by his Intimate friends Unit
lie has met with foul play ami perhaps
a cold blooded murder. He curried a
large sum of money Saturday night
anil this intensities the alarm of his
acquaintances , who hnvo searched in
vain for the missing man. The Nor
folk police force have been working
hard on the case today hut no signs
of the lost Burg have yet been brought
August Hurg Is a stone mason forty
years old , who has been employed at
the new Northwestern yards on the
work of the _ roundhouse. Ilo has
roomed at111 South Fourth street
with'several of his fellow workmen.
Saturday night at 7 o'clock ho ate
supper at the homo of August Saul-
straff , where ho hoarded , -113 South
Fourth street , and ho has not boon
seen since. Ho at that time carried
u large sum of cash and this gives
grounds for the fears of the man's ac
William Sestrow Is proprietor of
the boarding house. Ho says that
Burg had several hundred dollars of
his savings in his pockets on Satur
Burg's usual bed time came but Burg
did not appear. Sunday morning
dawned and still the stone mason did
not show up. This gave cause for
considerable worry and when another
night passed and n Monday morning
came without any sign of the missing
man , who should have gone to work
nt 7 today , the facts were made known
to the police and they began an im
There was no reason In the world
why Burg would , of his own accord ,
leave the city without informing his
co-workmen. He has $50 in wages com
ing on Wednesday from the railroad
company , and this , alone , would have
ordinarily kept him. Besides that he
has no friends elsewhere to whom ho
might suddenly take a notion to go.
Burg Is a Swede who hardly speaks
a word of English. Ho has been In
Norfolk but eight weeks , during which
time he has been steadily at work in
the new railroad yards. He Is mar
ried but his wife is still In Europe.
He was a man of regular habits in
every way and there is no accounting
for his so suddenly and queerly drop
ping from view except the foul play
theory. This is made very much more
plausible by the fact that ho had on
his person Saturday night a large
amount of cash , and that this was
known. Just exactly how much mon
ey ho was carrying , Burg's friends
do not know but they are sure that
the sum was considerable.
When he was last seen , Burg was
dressed in his working garments. Ho
wore no vest and a straw hat rested
upon his head. He is fully six feet
tall and wears a full mustache. Ho
talks almost wholly In his native
tongue and says very few words in
Charles Sandqulst , who roomed with
Burg , is the man who gave informa

is positive that his friend has mot

as he does , he feels perfectly confident
that a sudden departure would be the
last tiling that would enter Burg's

[ From Tuesday's Dally. ]
August Burg , the Swedish stone
mason who so suddenly and myster
iously disappeared from Norfolk Sutur-
day night with several hundred dollars
lars on his person , and for whom the
police were looking hard all day yes
terday , has been located. Ho was
seen Monday morning on the depot
platform at Winside , and ho had just
bought a ticket for Sioux City. He
was gazing in an abstracted way at
the prairie and It is thought ho lost
his mind nnd wandered away from
homo without any definite end in view.
The discovery of the missing man
was made by H. Kauffman , who lives
In Queen City addition. Ho had
worked at the Northwestern yards for
several weeks with Durg but is now
employed near Yinsido. As ho passed
across the platform at Wiusldo yesterday -
torday morning lie recognized Burg
but did not stop to talk with him. Ho
merely supposed that the follow had
Qult.work nnd was leaving the country ,
as ho had not at that tlmo hoard of
the disappearance , " \Vhon Kauffmann
arrived homo last night , however , ho
learned of the search and recalled
X Burg's attitude at Winsido.
Took Ticket to Sioux City.
"Ho asked the agent for n ticket to
Mayor or something of that character ,
in Iowa. Ho speaks broken English
mul th'o agent was unable to under '
stand him. So ho gave llnrg a ticket
to Sioux City Instead and It Is prob
able that ho has * gouo on before this ,

along the . ( irmlc , east of the Main
street bridge , thinking that possibly
ho might have drowned. The last
known of him IH the fact that on Sat
urday night , after supper , ho left his
boarding house at Hit South Fourth
street and walked hurriedly to the
postolllce. After that he was not soon.
Having been gone a day and two
nights , it is supposed that Hurg must
have walked to Wlnslde. Ho had sev
eral hundred dollars in his pockets
when hint seen anil this gave oauso
for the alarm that foul play might
have taken him In.
Had $50 Coming Tomorrow.
Hurg had ? fiU In wages coming to
him from the company tomorrow and
It was thought that he would wait for
this In any event , unless dragged
away. This makes It seem very prod-
able that ho lost his mind. Ho Is forty
years old and has a wlfo In Sweden.
It was reported on the streets at
noon that Hurg was In the Plerco coun
ty jail , being detained by the sheriff
of thai county on a charge of Insanity ,
but Inquiry develops that there Is
nothing In the story that there is no
such man in jail at Pierce. Therefore
the most definite Information obtain
able seems to fndicate thai ho has ,
gone toward Sioux City as given by

who learns that his cousin , Dan Me-
Lcod , defeated Jenkins , the world's
champion catch-as-catch-can wrestler ,

is short in stature. Ho holds the
world's championship in the light and
middleweight classes of wrestlers and
having no competitor worthy of his
mettle in those has tackled the heavy
weights and succeeded in throwing
the champion of that class. According
to the articles of agreement for Fri
day night's match Jenkins undertook j
to throw McLeod twice in one hour ,
of actual wrestling time , McLeod to
win the match i he secured one fall. ,
The big Giovolander took the first
fall in 15:50 : with a half Nelson and

dored and the bridge will bo repaired

With favorable weather the driving
of the piles will begin Monday , or as

the lumber Is received It will not re

One Merchant Rebelled.
I From Monday's Dally. ]
One of Tilden's business men was
recently asked to subscribe towards
the building of a new church in this
neighborhood. The solicitor is ono
of those excellent souls whose good
citizenship can not be questioned , but
who has formed the habit of making
most of Ills purchases through Mont
gomery Ward's and Sears , Roebuck -
buck & Co's. department stores.
The business man listened attentively
and spoke very encouragingly of the
prospective church and then asked
how much of a donation was expected
from him. The sum was mentioned
and the merchant considered the
amount reasonable. But , a second
I thought occurring to him , ho sug
gested that the church worker write
a letter to the heads of the depart
ment stores mentioned asking for
contributions for the laudable object
' of building a place of worship among
some of their customers in this vi
cinity. The solicitor demurred , but
the business man was firm and closed
the Interview by promising to donate
double the amount subscribed by the
two big eastern firms. Tildon Citizen.

WANT ALKE REMOVED ,
Petition to Have the Foreman of the
Government Building Relieved
From His Position.
( From Wednesday's Dnlly. ]
A petition is being circulated ad
dressed to Superintendent Williams of
the United States court house , asking
that F. W. Alke , foreman of construc
tion , bo removed from the position he
now holds. It is alleged In the petition
that Alko speaks In abusive language
to the laborers and to people around
the building , and that his high handed
methods are not pleasing. The peti
tion asks that R. H. Reynolds bo given
the position as foreman. This action
undoubtedly is the sequence of the
trouble of Sunday when Jack Dalton
attempted to hit the foreman a few
times , because ho claimed Alko had
abused him when ho was at work.
Foreman Alko staled to a reporter
for The News this morning Unit ho
was not particular whollior tiio men ,
or In fact the people of Norfolk , liked
him or whether they didn't. Ho said
ho was employed to keep the men on
the building nt work and that Is what
he proposed to do eight hours of the
day. If ho does his duty that is all
he Is supposed to do. He says he does
not mix with the men in their drunken -
en brawls and as a consequence they
do not like him , but that does not
trouble him. lie expects to fulfill his
duty to God and the company and so
long ns ho lias God with him ho does
not care if all Norfolk is against him.
