POLICEMAN IS BEATEN UP BY MANDAN CROWD
Poolroom Assembly Attacks Night Watch; Warrants Out Today for AttackersMatt Sanders, Mandan night policeman, was badly beaten up last night by a crowd of young men. He has sworn out warrants today for the arrest of Ray McAdams and Robert Windbaur.
Sanders, it is said, has not proven very popular with the people of Mandan. Last night he entered a pool room where a number of young men were loafing. Reports say they were drunk.
A fight followed, in which Sanders was very much the loser. Thomas Sullivan, of the Mandan Commercial club was passing by and dropped in to help the policeman, but after flooring two of his assailants, left.
Jack Brady, the Nonpartisan league's candidate for sheriff of Morton county is reported to have been among those who attacked the policeman.
