Sunday night a gang of men broke into a Great Northern car of melons and stole a large quantity of them. We understand that some of the men in the deal are in the employ of the Great Northern and that their names are known. It will go hard with them. The fellows, when confronted by the G. N. policeman, offered to settle for the melons, but their money was not accepted. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of several of these lawbreakers.
