Robbed In A Saloon.
Tom Brown, of Pine county, arrived in this city yesterday morning, intending to spend a few hours in seeing the elephant, and then pursue his visit to Jefferson county, where his family is on a visit, and to spend his summer vacation with them. Tom Brown is a saw mill hand and had been paid off, and felt proud with the very little sum of $65 in a roll of bills in his right vest pocket and a watch in its twin. He went into a jewelry shop and had some slight disarrangement to his ticker repaired, and coming out met two "gentlement" whom being quite loquacious he got acquainted with in the street and took them into a saloon in the region of Seventh and Wacauta streets, where he displayed his money, was robbed of half of it and an attempt was made to get his watch. He complained to the police, who from his description arrested H. E. Foreseth and Edward Wyne as the robbers and locked them up in the city hall, retaining Brown in sight for the night for his appearance against them this morning. It's the same old story of a gudgeon and a snide saloon with confederate runners.
