satisfaction of the government's dila

Special to The Tribune.
WASHBURN, N. D., March 23.—
This village is in a state of profound
excitement as a result of alleged black
hand operations ./hich have been di
rected toward one of the prominent
bankers of the McLean county capital.
There was a faint suspicion that per
haps the outrages might have been
committed by some inane practical
Joker, but recent occurrences lead to
the belief that there is an ulterior mo
tive behind the mischief.
Cashier F. E. Funk of the First Na
tional bank of Washburn is the in
dividual toward whom the attacks are
directed. Recentlr a brick was thrown
through one of th windows of the
bank building. A short time later a
.brick was thrown through a window
of Mr. Funk's residence. A day or
so ago Mr. Funk, on his way to his
office, found apiece of paper with the
inscription, "Funk, we'll get you yet."
No reason can be ascribed for the ap
parent malicious intent of the culprit.
It is understood that the city au
thorities may offer a reward for the
apprehension of the guilty parties. Mr.
Funk offered a reward recently of $100
and has now Increased It to $200. The
offender will be shown no mercy if
he falls into the clutches of the offi
cers of the law.
