Charles Hendricks, a vagrant, was picked up day before yesterday for getting too familiar with a young girl in the Northern Pacific depot
. As no specific charge could be brought against the man, he was held for vagrancy and sentenced to thirty days by Judge Moe and sentenced suspended pending his getting out of town. He said he was 26 years of age and he had escaped the draft and on being asked why he was not in the army he said they just happened to miss him. He is a regular tramp and the town is better off without him.
