MADMAN WITH KNIFE AND HAMMER IS CAPTURED
Wyndmere, Dec. 16.—Confronted by a madman armed with a knife and hammer, Arthur Holstrom, night engineer in charge of the Wyndmere electric plant, was last night driven into a corner of the engine-room, where he heard James Kelly, the intruder, calmly anounce "I will kill you."
Seized a moment later by another mood, Kelly, who had broken into the plant through a side door, declared he would let Holmstrom live to "hold him as a witness." A moment later Holmstrom succeeded in making a dash for liberty.
Returning with three men, Holmstrom and his companions rushed at the madman, overpowered and disarmed him only after a fierce struggle. None were injured.
