BIG WHIP WHILE
Aged Husband of Avenger, Who
Has Son in Army, Had Been
' Mistreated oy the
Grand Island, Neb., July 20.
'Special Telegram.) Indignities and
taunts visited upon an elderly man
and his 17-year-old son at Ravenna
by pro-Germans of a Burlington sec
' tion crew, caused the formation of a
mob at that place which took into
' hands the offenders and haled them
before the mother and wife of the
injured man and son and held them
up while the woman gave all but two
a lashing with a heavy horsewhip
until they cried "kamerad." The two
who escaped were later caught and
brought back to Ravenna and in tun
also given a thrashing.
The chastised men were then made
to kneel and kiss the American flag.
It is impossible at this hour to ob-
tain the names of the avengers or of
the offending men, who are stated to
be of German descent. The aged man
who was mistreated with his young
son is said to be an unoffending per
son who is forced to work on the
section since a son who was the main
support of the family has gone to
war. The pro-German workmen
made the old man and his son butts
of practical "jokes,", as they termed
the alleged treatment, when the father
was taken to a farm home and at
tired in dresses procured there and
then held in mud and water wlyle the
boy was thrown into the river, where
he was rescued by passersby. Then
it was that a mob of jndignant citi
zens gathered and prepared the way
for the wife and mother to inflict
punishment with a horsewhip upon
the hides of kaiser admirers.

but Julius Johnson and Fred Danner,
Mr. Finley's 'neighbors, who were
standing by the automobile, were not
pit. Before Finley could reload for a
'second shot his neighbors had made
known their identity. Mr. Johnson
and Mr. Danner had attended a meet
ing at the school house and stopped
for a chat before leaving for home.
Mr. Finley offered his apologies and
no action was taken.
