A Minor Hold-Up.
A pre-circus incident of Friday
right for several hours gave Shelby
a tense feeling due to a disturbance
'* err inating at the Southern pas
senger station. j
Two of the circus mm, known as I
“24-hour man." were at the station j
in an ill humor about some train
routing. In the passenger waiting
room the two kept arguing with a
trainmen. Meantime Vernon Proc
tor, ticket agent, asked the men to
move from the window so that an
aged lady, who wished to purchase
a ticket, could approach the win
dow. This turned the anger of the
two circus men upon Proctor,. A
short time later, according to
Proctor, the two men forced them
selves into the private office of the
agent and renewed their argument.
After some minutes they were ask
ed out by Proctor. Whereupon, it is
said, one of them shoved his hand
into his pocket and pointing some
thing inside, resembling a gun, to
wards the agent and threatened to
kill him. Similar threats were made
by the pal of the first one. Mean
time a trainmen outside called the
police. Upon the arrival of officers
the men were searched but no gun
found and one of them was brought
to the city hall where the remark
was made that they could not be
arrested. In the interim Proctor
telephoned Sheriff Hugh Logan,
and for a time serious trouble
threatened. During the bustle the
circus man who had taken the lead
in the row caught a bus and left
town and the other apologized to
Proctor and the matter was drop

the many reasons advanced why he
should be governor there seems to
be little doubt but what he will be.

“As for myself I pledged the best
of me to serve the disabled boys in
my first campaign. It is my only
pledge and I renew it,” the Con
gressman told his hearers among
whom were veterans and parents of

Some of Mr. Bulwinkle’s remark
“It is seldom that I ever speak
about an opponent because speak
ing about the opponent is not dis
cussing the issues of the campaign.
But, several days ago in one of my
speeches I referred to the fact that
during the/present administration
the northern states were cluttered
up with hospitals for the disabled
veterans while the disabled men
(veterans) in the South were suf

and that the present administration
did not believe in placing these hos
