Newspaper published in: Bolivar, TN


Page/Column: Page 1, Column 2

JOHN A. YOUNG, a Swede, was enticed into a freight car by seven tramps, near Dodge Center, Minn., on the 7th. When the train was under way they robbed him and threw him out of the car. He was seen by the conductor, who, with the assistance of his crew, secured the seven and handed them over to the town marshal. Young's injuries may be fatal, in which case there will be a lynching.
