Geo. Morrison, the man who stole a team from E. Webster recently, was arrested at Stevens Point, last Friday. Morrison took the train for Chicago, at Junction City and, although changed in appearance by having his bear shaved off and hair clipped, he was recognized by a gentleman on the train, by the name of C. C. Gifford, who informed the conductor who his passenger was, and stopping the train before approaching the depot at Stevens Point, the conductor ran ahead and informed an officer, who promptly arrested Morrison when the train stopped at the depot. A telegram was sent to sheriff Myers, who went to Stevens Point on Monday and returned with the prisoner on Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday morning he was brought before Justice Kountz, James O’Neill as council, and an examination being waved, he was bound over in the sum of $1,000, and not securing the necessary bond, was remanded back to the county jail to await his trail at the next term of the circuit court.
