Sam Howe, Canadian ludian, Will
Complete Sentence of Six Months
Sam Howe, a Canadian Indian,
was taken from this city last even-
ing to International Falls and from
that place will be sent across the
border to Fort Francis, to be placed
in jail to complete serving a sen-
tence of six months, which sentence
was abruptly broken by the prisoner
escaping from the jail and crossing
the boundary of King Edward's
domain into the "land of the free
and the home of the brave."
Max Felstyner, U. S. Immigration
inspector at Winnipeg, who is tem
porarily located at International
Falls, was in charge of Howe, hav
ing taken him into custody from the
Beltrami county jail in this city,
where he has been confined dming
the past two weeks.
Howe was sentenced to serve a
term of six months in the prison at
Fort Francis on the charge of hav
ing been diunk and disorderly, our
Canadian cousins considering a
hilarious drunk, with pugulistic
accompaniment, as being an almost
unpardonable sin, hence the severity
of Howe's sentence.
Howe languished in the prison at
Fort Francis, after his sentence, foi
a month, when the novelty of the
situation wore off and he broke jail.
He made his way to Internationa
Falls and subsequently arrived in
Bemidji, being jailed here shortly
after his arrival, at the request of
the authorities at Fort Francis.
Howe is a meek-looking Indian,
and judging by his appearance, one
would not think that the Canadian
whisky (the excellence of which is
the boast of all canucks) would put
murderous ideas into his head.

A man named Lacore, who is fore
man of the Wilton and Northern
section, was severely injured just be
foie noon today and brought to
this city on the east-bound passen
ger train and taken to the St. An
thony's hospital for treatment.
Lacore, in company with another
man, was aboard his handcar in the
yards at Wilton, when the accident
occured. The Wilton and Northern
engine was doing some shunting in
the switch yards while Lacore and
his man were going through the
yards on a handcar. The engine
approached the handcar and slowed
up as it drew nearer, but did not
entirely stop, and as it was nearly
top of the handcar again started
i rapidlv, hit the car and threw the
two men into a ditch.
Lacore's face and head were quite
severely cut and one of his ribs was
broken, in fact, he sustained injuries
that the attending physician (Dr.
Morrison) believes will lay him up
for some time.
