Mail Tribune 100: December 8, 1913

December 8, 1913

J.N. Bradbury, a livery stable worker, is held in the city jail on a charge of breaking into the Moore bar Sunday morning. Bradbury was discovered in the saloon by Emil Mohr. Upon being questioned as to his business, he said he came with the regular bartender who had just stepped out. This was a satisfactory explanation. Bradbury walked out. A bar apron containing two dozen bottles of whisky was found, the police notified, and Bradbury located in bed in the Nash stables.

Bradbury was identified by Mohr as the man who outwitted him. Chief Hittson says he gave as his reasons for the crime the fact that he had no job and was hungry. Later he told Officer Cingcade he could not recall anything that had happened the last week.

Entrance to the bar was secured by breaking the glass of the rear door and springing the Yale lock by reaching the hand through. Afterwards the glass was put back in the door. Bradbury will be given a preliminary hearing today.

"Ragging" is now tabooed at Talent following a sprited fracas during a dance in that city Saturday night. A delegation of citizens headed by Harrison Morrison appeared before Prosecutor Kelly this morning and four warrants for disturbing the peace will be issued today.
